Muslim Student Associations in Canada
Hat tip The Israel Group and TSEC Network Canada
This site has written expensively about the activities of the Muslim Student Union at UC Irvine for years. We have also reported on activities of the Muslim Student Association chapters in the US as well as its sister organization, Students for Justice in Palestine.
We should, not, however, overlook Canada and its universities. Canada is another hotbed of radical Islamic activity, a situation that can only get worse under liberal prime minster Justin Trudeau. The below article by Terrorism and Security Experts of Canada (TSEC) gives a portrait of the MSA in Canada, its history, its associations, its aims and many of its members who have gone on to terrorist activity.
My own experience with the MSU at UC Irvine confirms this narrative. While many young Muslim students may be drawn to join a MSA/MSU chapter for all the right reasons, a chapter’s leadership positions are a cause for concern. Aside from observing the faith and da’wa, political activity in the guise of human rights, such as opposing and demonizing Israel on campus are a main motivation of these chapters.
In addition, whiel the official position of these chapters may deny extremism and anti-semitism, when speakers like Amir Abdel Malik Ali and Abdul Alim Musa come to speak (as I have seen them do at UCI) , it puts the lie to any claims of moderation.
