A big hat tip to Kathy Shaidle’s hubby for pointing out yet another instance of preemptive sharia compliance from a Western government. In this case, a Canadian departmental agency has decided to cancel the permit for a Draw Mohammed Day event slated to take place on Parliament Hill. For those of you who may have forgotten, this is the same site of a jihadist attack upon the Canadian National War Memorial which took the life of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo last year. So, contrary to much public posturing by elected officials, the terrorists really are winning, at least insofar as one of their primary goals, i.e. silencing any substantive, critical discussion of Islam, is being achieved-by their ostensible enemies, no less!
