Canadian Muslim leaders worried Geller and Spencer will spread Truth of Islam

A Canadian Muslim organization is calling on Ottawa to spell out how it decides whether to allow controversial foreign speakers into the country ahead of a planned appearance by two conservative American bloggers.

The National Council of Canadian Muslims worries Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer will spread "hate and misinformation" about the Islamic faith when they speak at a Toronto-area hotel Tuesday evening, the group's executive director said.

Though it disagrees with their message, the group isn't seeking to have the pair turned away at the border, Ihsaan Gardee said. But it would like to know how, exactly, that decision is made.

"What we would like from the government of Canada is clear and consistent direction... when it comes to the eligibility of speakers to enter Canada," he said.

"It needs to be consistent and clear because if it isn't, then it sends a message that freedom of speech and hate (are) being arbitrarily measured."

... FAIL!!!!

Hamas-linked Canadian Muslim group's smear campaign fails: Robert Spencer speaking tour begins tomorrow
The National Council of Canadian Muslims, formerly known as the Council on American-Islamic Relations Canada, mounted a campaign featuring the usual defamation and lies to get me (and Pamela Geller, who will be along next week) barred from Canada. They failed. Canada evidently is more realistic and courageous than Britain, and not ready to bar someone who has never done anything but call for the freedom of speech and equality of rights for all on the basis of libelous charges from terror-linked groups and hard Leftists. I am in Canada now, and giving three talks tomorrow in Grande Prairie, Alberta. If you're in the neighborhood, drop by.
