Justin Trudeau, the frontrunner in the Liberal Party of Canada leadership race, will take part in a meeting on Saturday, December 22,  2012, in Toronto, where he. will share the podium with numerous Islamist leaders.  For the occasion, he will be joined by many Muslim Brotherhood heavyweights, including Tariq Ramadan, Jamal Badawi and Mustafa Ceric.

In March 2011, Justin Trudeau had already showed good-will towards Islamists by condemning the use of the term “barbaric” that was used to designate honour killings in a study guide for would-be Canadian citizens. After having been widely criticized, Trudeau backtracked and apologized.

Three Islamist leaders who will share the podium with Justin Trudeau at the Reviving the Islamic Spirit conference are particularly worth mentioning: Tariq Ramadan, Jamal Badawi and Mustafa Ceric. All three have supported Hamas in the past and promoted an Islamic conquest of the West.

Tariq Ramadan

In his book Radical Reform, Ramadan presents Muslim Brotherhood spiritual guide Youssef Qaradawi as a “prominent scholar” who has outlined the attitudes and the kind of behaviour that Muslims living in the West should adopt. In another book, Ramadan wrote about Qaradawi that he “deeply respect(s) the man and the scholar and that (he) would be the last one to deny it.”

Qaradawi promotes the conquest of the West by Muslims, he claims that Hitler was “sent by Allah to punish the Jews”, he endorses the killing of those who leave Islam, etc.

In 2011, in Dallas, Tariq Ramadan has openly enjoined his supporters to “coloniz(e) positively the United States of America … with our understanding of Islam, our principles.”

In a 2004 interview given to an Egyptian periodical, Tariq Ramadan described the Canadian legal framework as “one of the most open in the world”. He suggested that Muslim leaders operating in Canada should take full advantage of it in order to discretely implement sharia principles one at a time. Ramadan added that “for the time being”, it would be preferable not to openly mention the term sharia since it “is laden with negative connotations in the Western mind.”
It has not been possible to determine whether or not Liberal candidate Justin Trudeau is aware of the program of conquest advocated by Tariq Ramadan and other Islamists being invited in Toronto.

Jamal Badawi

Jamal Badawi leads many of the most important Muslim Brotherhood organizations in North America. In Canada, he was on the Muslim Association of Canada’s board of directors from 2002 to 2006. On its own website, MAC states that it “strives to implement Islam ... as understood in its contemporary context by the late Imam, Hassan Albanna (1906-1949), the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

In his 50-point manifesto, Hassan al-Banna promoted the abolition of political parties and the instauration of a one-party State, the reform of the law, so that it will conform to sharia, an increase in the number of youth groups promoting jihad, the prohibition of dancing, the censorship of movies and plays and a dress code for all citizens enforced by a religious police.

According to GMBDR that monitors the Muslim Brotherhood throughout the world, MAC and Hamas (charter – article 2) are among the rare sections of the network openly acknowledging their links with the Brotherhood.

At point 20 of an internal Muslim Brotherhood’s memorandum released in the United States in 1991, Jamal Badawi is identified as a leader of the Islamist network in North America.

At point 4 of this memorandum, the goal pursued by Badawi and the Muslim Brotherhood in North America is clearly expressed:
The Ikhwan (Muslim Brotherhood) must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and "sabotaging" its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions... It is a Muslim's destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes."

Mustafa Ceric

Like Jamal Badawi (Gamal Badawi), Mustafa Ceric (Ciric) is a member of the European Council for Fatwa and Research. The organization is currently led by the Muslim Brotherhood spiritual guide Youssef Qaradawi.

Until 2012 and for nineteen years, Mustafa Ceric was Bosnia’s grand mufti. Because of Qaradawi’s precarious health, observers often present Ceric as his possible successor.

In December 2010, at the Global Halal Congress held in Pakistan, Mustafa Ceric enjoined participants to “conquer the world through halal movement.”

Ceric’s ambition is based on the fact that halal’s scope is “very wide and goes beyond the food sector to include other fields such as financial and commercial activities (banks, credit, loans, mortgages, credit cards, insurance, etc.), cosmetics and clothing, drugs, recreational activities, gambling activities, sexual attitudes and objects, interpersonal relations (marriages), etc.”
