Commenting on Legault’s remarks, Thomas Woodley, President of Canadian for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME), stated, “If Mr. Legault wants to know if there is Islamophobia in Quebec, he has only to ask his fellow Muslims who face Islamophobia in all aspects of their lives – especially when it comes to finding a job.”
In the aftermath of the terrorist attack on Quebec City mosque in which six Muslims were murdered in cold blood, it was expected that the right-wing bigots and their bootlickers would tone down their anti-Islamic rhetoric. Instead they have intensified their attacks.
The outpouring of sympathy from Canadians for their Muslim neighbors following the terrorist attack on a Quebec City mosque on January 29 has been absolutely stunning. Total strangers have reached out to members of the Muslim community all across Canada to offer condolences and support. This must be unique among people of different faiths across the globe.
The Sunday (January 29) night shooting at a mosque in Quebec City, Canada has left six dead and eight wounded, six of them in critical condition. The heavily armed attackers were all white and fired into a crowd of about 50 worshippers as they were offering the night prayers.
