Muslim leader accuses Harper of racism
From the Canadian Press:
The leader of one of Canada's largest Islamic groups says Prime Minister Stephen Harper is indifferent to Omar Khadr's plight because he's "brown-skinned" and a Muslim.
Canadian Islamic Congress president Mohamed Elmasry says Harper is "callously" unconcerned about Khadr. Khadr's lawyers and others want Ottawa to repatriate Khadr from Guantanamo Bay.
Whatever offense Mr. Harper has committed through his unconcern, if any, it pales in comparison to Mohamed el-Masry's callous unconcern about Islamic extremism in the West, and threats to free speech in Canada. But how can you be concerned about threats to free speech when you and your surrogates are among the biggest threats around?
