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.
