Once urged tolerance and acceptance, now charged with terrorism and gunrunning…

Time after time we hear the rhetoric that Islam is a peaceful and tolerant religion.  Yet in reality and practice we see just the opposite.  Can the rest of the world be forgiven if we simply no longer believe the rhetoric?   Can we in reality come to any other conclusion than the one we have arrived at?  The message many proclaim is simply not lining up with their actions.

Laval, Quebec resident Mouna Diab

Lets take this story :

Laval, Quebec resident Mouna Diab was arrested last year for violating a Canadian-backed international arms embargo aimed at Lebanon.

The 26-year-old was charged at the time with attempting to smuggle assault weapons parts to the Lebanon-based, Iranian-backed Hezbollah terrorist organization.

The Lebanese-Canadian woman was also just charged under Canada‘s post-9/11 anti-terrorism laws of acting for “the benefit of, at the direction of, or in association with a terrorist group” according to a statement by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).

The National Post (of Canada) reports this is the first time Canada has charged anyone directly with Hezbollah.

Delving into her past, it was uncovered that:

Prior to her arrest, Ms. Diab was vice-president of the Association of Young Lebanese Muslims.

Her activism was focused partly on changing the stereotypes that too often associate Muslims with terrorism and violence.”

Terror Attacks Planned Against Canada…

The RCMP also stated that Hezbollah is “primarily involved in logistics and operational support activities and fundraising” within Canada.

Nonetheless, fears persist that the Tehran regime may unleash Hezbollah world-wide if Iranian nuclear facilities are attacked by the West.

Following the 2008 killing of Hezbollah terror chief Imad Mugniyah:

“Canadian authorities warned Canadian Jewish groups that Hezbollah might attempt a revenge attack in Canada.”

The Hezbollah network is reportedly larger in Canada than most Weste rners believe.

Also cited in the National Post report:

“The Hezbollah presence in Canada goes back at least two decades.

In 1993, a Hezbollah member named Mohamed Hussein Al Husseini told the Canadian Security Intelligence Service that Hezbollah had operatives ‘in all of Canada.’

Several senior Hezbollah members are alleged to be Canadians, including Faouzi Ayoub, a former Toronto man who took part in a hijacking and was added to the FBI’s most wanted terrorists list last July.”  Source http://www.examiner.com/article/canada-muslim-anti-stereotyping-activist-arrested-for-terrorism-gunrunning

So the message she was trying to convey to the media of a stereotyped that Islam was not violent at the end of the day was abandoned for a reality that it is.  Is it any wonder that many of us simply assume that Moslems lie in presenting one message to the world , whilst the other secretly planning the downfall of the world.  Can we be forgiven that we simply no longer believe such messages as a subtle form of subterfuge and misdirection.  In fact Moslems even have their own word for it:   

Taqiyya  (Lying)These circumstances are typically of those that advance the cause Islam – in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them.  Islam teaches that there are justified in doing so.  In debating with many elsewhere one does indeed find such tactics in use.  Even to the misdirection of what their own teachings had to say.  The end justifies any means at their disposal.
