Skip to comments.Dog protest planned for Scarborough mosque

TORONTO - The fur will be flying at an east-Toronto Mosque Friday afternoon, when a group of dog owners plan to walk their canines outside the building during prayer sessions.
It was toward the end of August that two groups the Canadian Hindu Advocacy and Canadians United Against Terror - set up a Facebook page inviting people to walk their dogs in front the Salahuddin mosque in Scarborough.
Their call was a response to an incident in August that took place during an anti-Israel demonstration at Queens Park by an Islamic group where a Jewish man was arrested for his involvement in an altercation where he was shoved and his dog was kicked.
Some devout Muslims believe dogs to be unclean and vehemently avoid the animals.
The Queens Park demonstration was a rally to mark al-Quds Day, an annual event originated by former Iranian leader Ayatollah Khomeini calling for the destruction of Israel and the rising up of a Palestinian state.
One organizer of Fridays dog walk told the Toronto Sun demonstrators will set up on the side-walk outside the mosques main entrance.
Theyll see us when they go in, walking our dogs, and well have a loud speaker and theyll know why were there, said Ron Banerjee of the Canadian Hindu Advocacy. In a democratic society, we are kind to our animals.
Banerjee admitted that while the Facebook page as of Thursday night listed 349 as planning to attend the event, organizers have received only around 40 personal confirmations.
The Facebook page has had its share of controversial visitors, as well.
It was during the end of August that Facebook administrators removed posts by Iranian-born Toronto resident Ali Shirazi after he threatened to throw dog owners who come to the mosque into a lake of fire. He also warned that their beloved pooches will be shot.
The event has attracted at least one radical evangelist south of the border. Controversial Christian fundamentalist Terry Jones had reportedly endorsed the dog walk. Jones is known for his threat in 2010 to burn hundreds of copies of the Quran - the Muslim holy book - to mark that years anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. In April he carried out his threat by burning several of them.
Jones is more recently known for hanging an effigy of U.S. President Barack Obama in response to the Presidents endorsement of same-sex marriage.
Place billboards near the mosques showing Jesus as the Son of God and say the was the LAST prophet. Would that fall under “slamming mohammed?
I doubt they asked for Terry Jones’ “endorsement.”
If I lived in Scarborough, I’d go.
Pig races next!!!!
I’m hoping at least one of the protesters brings a pet potbelly pig and not a dog.
So how is it that the Jewish man is shoved and his dog is kicked but it is he who gets arrested?
Our new mayor has not yet rooted out the political correctness infesting our police force.
It must be strange to live in a place where it is politically correct to arrest a Jew who gets beat up while walking his dog in the park.
That should be fun. Be sure and give us a post event update.
It is. Things are slowly improving now that we have a conservative mayor but the lefties are so entrenched it’ll take a LONG time to sideline them.
I'm starting to really like this guy.
I have a theory: If enough non-Muslim countries hold demonstrations that are either intentionally or unintentionally insulting to the prophet and Islam, will so many millions Muslim heads explode ala the Martians after hearing Slim Whitman in “Mars Attacks” that we can finally be rid of these ridiculous troglodytes?
Muslims next protest will be “Green Acres” be cause of Arnold.
I note PETA did not comment on the original dog issue.
If people defend their liberty, the radical muslims will self deport.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.

Reasonable, Canada has lots of lakes.
Better yet...barbecue some pork and make sure the mosque is downwind... }:o])
Is that Ranger?
If someone kicked my dog, it would be the last thing they ever did.
Ok, I’m on FB and I cannot find a page for this dog protest. I can find the pages for each of these groups, but not the protest-specific page. Anyone have the URL?
Modern PC police generally view themselves as “keepers of the peace,” not “enforcers of the law.”
Ergo, anyone standing up to muslims has to go, even some old Jewish guy and his dog.
I found it when I joined the Canadians United Against Terror group.
Ack. I wish I could Like it. No chance of attending.
A few sites like barkenakedislam.com and others picked it up, but unfortunately, after it picked up some notoriety, photobucket deleted the pics, but I'm still proud of Ranger:
If someone kicked my dog, and getting arrested would be the least of their worries.
I’d shoot ‘em in a heartbeat.
Muzzies are all vermin anyway.
Can’t he just fire everybody?
(Or make their lives so miserable they’ll quit?)
Unfortunately no, because of the labour laws set by the province. He’s shaken it up quite a bit so far but it’s a huge undertaking, one that will take a second term to have any lasting impact. Prior to him we had 15 years of union-friendly mayors and councillors.
GOOD DOG, GOOD BOY/GIRL.
Git some for Daddy.
Lake Fire is a new one, I think. Global warming made it.
“Some devout Muslims believe dogs to be unclean and vehemently avoid the animals.”
All the devout Muslims around here, however, have dogs up the wazoo, perhaps to control the depredations of wild pigs trained by the Jooos! on their grape vines and olive trees. Funny how “devout Muslims” have a problem with one of man’s best friends (the other being the horse, with which they seem to be ok). Is it because they have a problem with mankind?
TORONTO - A much anticipated dog walk protest outside an east-Toronto mosque Friday turned out to be a hopelessly neutered event.
Around 20 demonstrators turned up outside the Salahuddin Islamic Centre for the Walk Your Dog in Front of a Mosque protest. It was organized in response to a Jewish man who was arrested at a recent Islamic demonstration following an altercation in which his dog was kicked by a demonstrator.
Around 20 humans and three dogs two retrievers and a pomeranian turned up for the two and a half hour event and converged at the entrance of the mosque, located on Kennedy Rd. south of Eglinton Ave. E.
Some devout Muslims consider dogs to be unclean and avoid them.
We wish we had a better turnout, but there were extenuating circumstances, said organizer Ron Banerjee, citing traffic and rain for the poor attendance. The events such as the kicking of dogs the poisoning of dogs in countries like Spain and England on the part of staunch Muslims, he said, must be challenged. Being kind to animals and being tolerant of other people shouldnt be limited to the West, he said.
A group of Muslims belonging to the mosque men dressed in long thobes and women in burkas met the demonstrators.
Tabasum Hussain, a Muslim woman, called it pointless.
I dont really see the benefit or what its supposed to achieve, other than cause friction, said Hussain, who claims to have had dogs as pets. There is nothing in Islam to say that we should ill-treat dogs.
Towards the end, one Muslim arrived with two friendly Siberian Huskies. All the while, both sides bickered about religious and cultural differences, at several points reverting to name calling.
The event also attracted its share of rabid anti-Islamists. Eric Brazau, a convicted felon once arrested for allegedly harassing a group of Muslim women, turned up to make a stand.
If we look at what is happening around the world today
how is it that we can say that there is no problem with Islam? he said, referring to recent attacks on U.S. embassies in countries such as Libya and Sudan.
I guess the people at the mosque didn't get the memo. Some of them came out and petted the dogs.
Hindus know all about the scourge of Islam as the Jihad brought its infestation shortly after big Mo’s death to the Hindu Cush. Thousands of fire temples destroyed or turned into mosques and dhimiization of millions of Hindus.
How about a parade of women in traditional Western clothing and beer and alcohol as well. lol
Yeah, funny, that. I wouldn’t take my dogs near those people. They’re crazy. I would, however, be delighted to send a gift basket of my fur kids’ special blend with Best Wishes. (I guess that’d be re-gifting, but whatever)
A late night dump truck load of pig droppings might insure their relocation.
Jesus Christ is much more than a prophet. He is the son of God and the savior of the world. Mohammed is a fraud.
