According to her own sources, the woman who sued the Government of Canada to wear a niqab at her citizenship swearing-in ceremony works for an Islamacist extremist organization and openly supports a known terrorist group. The niqab debate is not about religious choice, as nothing in Islam actually requires wearing a niqab. It is about civilization jihad.

Zunera Ishaq works for Islamic Circle of North America (Sisters) in Ontario[1] and previously worked for ICNA main group. The ICNA is an ideological mirror image of the Muslim Brotherhood and Jamaat-e-Islamia (JeI). These are, not coincidentally, the same groups that have worked for years to infiltrate the Liberal Party of Canada and run candidates in the federal election. (See Has the Liberal Party of Canada been Infiltrated by Extremist Candidates? )

According to the ICNA itself, their role in Canada is:

“to obtain the pleasure of Allah (SWT) through working for establishment of Islam in all spheres of life.”[2]

Ms. Ishaq also shows on her Facebook page that she is a member of the Jamaat-e-Islami Facebook group. The JeI was founded by al-Maududi. His view, according to his own book, is that:

Islam wishes to destroy all States and Governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam regardless of the country or the Nation which rules it.”

It should be noted that the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) of Mississauga had its charitable status revoked for funding terrorism (The ISNA Development Fund). The terrorist group in question was the Jamaat-e-Islami. Like the ICNA, the ISNA is a front group for the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Muslim Brotherhood in North America has made its mission clear. That mission is civilization jihad. On page seven of their 1991 memo[3], the Muslim Brotherhood stated:

The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The 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…”

“[W]e must possess a mastery of the art of ‘coalitions’, the art of ‘absorption’ and the principles of ‘cooperation.’”

Ms. Ishaq is clearly working for an extremist group that has an agenda of imposing their politicized form of Islam on Canada and the rest of the world. Her victory is not one for religious freedom, rather it is another victory for extremist Islam in Canada.

The support shown for this campaign by the Liberal and NDP parties shows the degree to which they have been infiltrated and how removed they are from mainstream Islam and Canadians.
