    Today, the National Council of Canadian Muslims once again are calling for the dropping of Conservative candidate Ghada Melek.  Below is their statement on a facebook post:

    “We appreciate that all people can change. But when candidates express hateful views, apologies have to be directed towards the communities affected, not towards political parties.

    That’s why we are continuing to call for Ghada Melek’s resignation.

    Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer stated that if a Conservative candidate has made racist or homophobic comments in the past, he will stand by the candidate as long as they apologize and take responsibility for those comments.

    But Ghada Melek’s apology doesn’t take responsibility.

    “As a Coptic Christian, I know what my family and friends often endured under Morsi and the Brotherhood, and that passion may have got the best of me at times,” she said in a statement. “While these are almost entirely retweets from more than half a decade ago, I do understand how some of them may be offensive, and I do regret that as well as retweeting them…”

    While we of course decry any oppression of the Coptic community in Egypt, no candidate for elected government in Canada should promote utter nonsense against the Muslim community on that basis (like when she blamed “Islamists” for the economic crisis in Detroit)

    We would be happy to accept Ghada Melek’s apology when it a) clearly denounces anti-Muslim bigotry and Islamophobia and b) commits to meeting folks from diverse backgrounds to learn more.

    An apology where Melek states that some of her retweets “may have been offensive” isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on.

    We aren’t asking for much. Asking that a person who is apologizing understands the harm caused, and commits to learning more, should be obvious.

    If Ghada Melek can’t commit to doing better, she has no place in standing to be a candidate.

    When you share the hateful views of the Clarion Project (which was named by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate organization) it’s time to demonstrate that you’re willing to grow as a person.

    Without a real apology, despite giving Ghada Melek numerous opportunities to engage in such a process, we have no choice but to continue to call on Andrew Scheer, alongside other folks in the Muslim Council of Peel and Imam Ibrahim Hindy, to drop Ghada as a candidate.”

    On August 4, Circanda posted a story of the initial concerns of NCCM. We countered that with concerns of our own. Our concerns still stand.

    NCCM has had ties with CAIR, an American human rights group whose founder Nihad Awad has voiced support for the terror group Hamas.

    “Awad publicly declared “I am in support of the Hamas movement,” during a March 1994 symposium at Barry University”

    Although they changed their name from CAIR Canada to NCCM in 2013, no apology was forthcoming for CAIR founder’s  support for Hamas, there was no removing themselves from any association with the parent group.

    “We remain the same organization our constituents and partners have come to rely on to represent a broad and diverse spectrum of Canadian Muslims.”

    https://circanada.com/2019/09/09/will-president-trump-address-human-rights-violations-during-amirs-visit/ "Will President Trump address Kuwait’s dismal human rights record in the upcoming visit with His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah on September 12?"

    His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, accompanied by Vice President of the Kuwait National Guard Sheikh Meshaal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, headed  to the United States for a private visit. His Highness the Amir will visit Washington DC for official talks with US President Donald Trump on September 12th.

    Circanada has done a series of articles on  Egyptian Coptic Christian Hani Morris who has been under constant threat from Kuwaiti nationals since receiving asylum in Canada. You can read the stories here, here and here.

    According to an Amnesty International report, “The authorities continued to unduly restrict the rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly, including by prosecuting and imprisoning government critics under criminal defamation laws.”

    The government terminated the employment contracts of over 3,000 foreign employees in the public sector under a nationalization policy.

    Mr Morris is a prime example of human rights violations in Kuwait. The following court documents show this disregard for his rights.

    69394160_1072074899666728_2282635157724725248_n

    This document from the Kuwaiti court of justice shows the insults to Mr Morris for being Christian by Al Mulsa motors. The courts did nothing.

    These letters of complaint were sent by the Coptic Association in USA  to the Kuwaiti ambassador in USA because Hani Morris was fired from his job as he refused to falsely  testify against a Client.

    This photo of a document shows the discrimination against Hani Morris for being an Egyptian and a Christian.

    69847389_2490470411198224_7006437861440356352_n

    This is a letter from the Egyptian Association in Australia to Kuwaiti ambassador in Australia, a complaint about the way Hani Morris and his case was handled in Kuwait .

    The United States government should be aware of the human rights violations against Mr Morris by Kuwait, as their ambassador was contacted. Will President Trump address Kuwait’s dismal human rights record in the upcoming visit with  His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah on September 12?
