The Istanbul airport terrorist attack may not be the last of the terrorist group's dastardly crimes.

Is Islamophobia on the rise in Canada as well in the wake of the racist Islamophobic rhetoric of Donald Trump south of the border? The June 20 assault by an ugly woman on a hijabi sister at a London, ON supermarket definitely gives cause for concern. The assailant has been charged but not with hate crime; only assault.

June, 2016

The Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida by a deranged New York-born Muslim has again given anti-Muslim bigots and xenophobes the opportunity to target the beleaguered community. The assailant, Omar Mateen was of Afghan parentage and that was enough for the likes of Donald Trump to come out blazing with both guns demanding shutting of all mosques and banning Muslims' entry into the US. Did easy access to guns have nothing to do with it?

This was demonstrated yet again when the Saudis used blackmailing tactics against the UN threatening to withhold funds unless their name was removed from the list of countries guilty of crimes against children. The Saudis and their Arabian allies have murdered more than 510 children in Yemen since March 2015.
