Canada’s funding of nut case exemplar, Khaled Mouammar

Canadians are mild, well-mannered, tolerant and, well – nice. I should know – I am one.

Sometimes we are too nice: take the case of arch-twerp, Khaled Mouammar who described the Canadian immigration minister, Jason Kenney as a ‘professional whore who supports war’ because of Canada’s support of Israel. Khaled Mouammar is national president of the Canadian Arab Federation, an entity which receives Federal funding – in other words receives money from the average, nice, Canadian tax-payer.

I already have enough reasons for disliking paying tax without the nigglingly irritating knowledge that some of it is going to fund jihadist halfwits like Mouammar. I manage to reconcile myself to this outrage by realising that living is a compromise and so is democracy: the benefits outweigh the idiocy; grin and bear it. But when I see protestations like this coming from recipients – who, given half a chance, would cheerfully destroy the foundation that makes those dollars possible – of my democratically mandated beneficence, the irritation is in danger of metastasising into thoroughly un-Canadian intolerance.

OTTAWA – Immigration Minister Jason Kenney says the Canadian Arab Federation will have to change its leadership and adopt a more moderate stance or risk losing federal funding.

The federation reacted Friday by saying it is undemocratic and dangerous for a cabinet minister to “bully” an elected president and board of directors, and the minister’s comments should concern all immigrant-settlement agencies in Canada.

Immigration Minister Jason Kenney said a decision will be made soon on the funding threat he made after Canadian Arab Federation president Khaled Mouammar described the minister as a ‘professional whore who supports war’ during the Israeli bombing of Gaza last month.
