Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.  How much more severely do you think a man deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of Man under foot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified him, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace?

I command by Allah to go and fight all the people of the world until they confess there is no god but Allah, and I am his messenger, and to pray five times a day and to give alms. And if they do that, their blood will be spared from me. [A hadith  recorded by Al-Bukhari, cited in Gabriel, Islam and Terrorism, p. 78.]

The Canadian government is now Liberal. It is an exciting time for much of the media, union leaders, climate radicals, weed enthusiasts, pacifist activists, liberal Christians, anti-car planners, abortion advocates, and all economic illiterates who welcome bigger government.
