Don't Call Us Violent Or We'll Kill You!

OTTAWA–Toronto police have launched a hate crime investigation into a phone call from a man who vowed to “slaughter” members of a local Muslim group unless they stop speaking publicly about Islam.

A message left Monday on the voice mail of the secretary general for the Muslim Canadian Congress warned that organization members must “cease from your campaign of smearing Islam” or “I will slaughter you.”

The message mentioned congress founder Tarek Fatah and current president Farzana Hassan-Shahid by name. Both have openly criticized the politicization of Islam and alleged influence of Iran and Saudi Arabia in Canadian mosques.

It’s not the first time they’ve been threatened. Hassan-Shahid said since publishing her book Islam, Women and the Challenges of Today, she has been heckled and had her home vandalized.

“But swearing by God that `I will do this and slaughter all of you,’ that’s pretty chilling,” Hassan-Shahid said yesterday.
H/T LGF who explains why Tarek Fatah unfortunately is only moderate compared to these lunatics.
