“EDMONTON—Police are investigating after members of a local Islamophobic group entered the Al Rashid Mosque in north Edmonton on Friday.

Noor Al-Henedy, a spokesperson for the mosque, said members of the Wolves of Odin group asked pointed questions in a clear attempt to “provoke” worshippers.”

Is there anything more frustrating that having a passel of white dudes – just asking questions – that they don’t want to hear the answer to?  Important male opinion is at stake and these brave douches warriors are taking the front lines and JAQing off at a local mosque.

“She said two men entered the mosque on Friday, the day Muslims gather to worship in public. The men were wearing toques that said “Kafir” in Arabic, which translates to infidel or non-believer. Other members of the group are pictured in a Facebook video standing directly outside the mosque and asking members questions about Islam.

Al-Henedy said it looked like the two men who entered the mosque were “surveilling” the building.”

I know we here in Alberta have the reputation as being ‘Texas North’ but for once,  just once can we not live up to the reputation of being false populist loving, narrow minded, gerbil brained xenophobes (pretty please)?

“In messages over Facebook, Hunt said he was the man wearing the infidel toque inside the mosque, and said he also has the word tattooed on his neck. He denied being Islamophobic, and said he is against all religions. He said his activities are not affiliated with any specific group, though his page features a number of images related to the groups Canadian Infidels and Wolves of Odin, and he said he used to be a member of Soldiers of Odin.

He said he went inside the mosque to use the bathroom, and the reason he went to the property Friday was “to catch real Muslims walking in to possibly answer questions.”

 

This is not the spirit of debate in a free society.  This is a calculated malevolent action testing the waters to see if further bullshite will fly under the radar of society.   Will update the story as it continues to develop.
