Canadians from Iran and Pakistan Rally Against the “Islamophobia” Law

BY ROBERT SPENCER

The supporters of the Canadian bill condemning “Islamophobia” insist that it will not restrict the freedom of speech, but interim Conservative Leader Rona Ambrose was more realistic: she said that she was concerned that charges of “Islamophobia” would be used “to intimidate rather than to inform,” and added: “I do worry that some of my work trying to empower women and girls in Muslim communities could be branded as ‘Islamophobic’ if I criticize practices that I believe are oppressive.”

Of course she is absolutely right. That is exactly what happened to Pamela Geller and me when we held a conference about honor killing. The interviewees in the video above come from Iran and Pakistan and are against the bill because they know what it leads to. As one of them said, “I know how it starts.” This is how.
