No Music, PE or Becoming A Canadian.

I wonder how Muslim parents are going to stop their kids from listening to music. No physical education might lead to chubby kids, maybe that's why burkas are so loved. The most important thing to take from this is that those Muslim parents are preventing their children from becoming Canadian.

WINNIPEG— A dozen Muslim families who recently arrived in Canada have told Winnipeg’s Louis Riel School Division that they want their children excused from compulsory elementary school music and coed physical education programs for religious and cultural reasons.
This is why Canadians are becoming so careful around Muslims. We tiptoe around their loud demands, saying nothing, but thinking they are rude. Why is it that most immigrants fit into Canadian culture without any problems, but Muslims can not and will not? Chinese, Europeans, Japanese, Russians, all come here and integrate into Canadian society. What one group doesn't? What one group runs to our HRC's with hurt feelings? What one group wants us to change our life style to accommodate them? Muslims.

I know some Muslims, and they are wonderful people, but their voices are silent against the more violent radical Islamists, so they get branded with the same brush as the radicals.

Thankfully some Muslims are starting to speak out:

However, a local Muslim leader says there is no reason for young kids to be held out of music or phys-ed classes based on religious and cultural grounds.

“Who is advising them? My first concern would be who are these new immigrants talking to?” said Shahina Siddiqui, executive director of the Islamic Social Services. “This is the first time I am hearing this; I’m not very happy about it.”

Siddiqui said there is no problem with elementary-school children taking coed phys-ed, at least “not with little kids under the age of puberty.”

Good for you! Maybe you should talk to those "recent" immigrants and clue them in about being Canadian. We are a tolerant society, but don't confuse that with us being marshmallows, we will fight for our freedoms. If you come to Canada expecting to change it into a failed dictatorship like you just left, don't bother to come, we don't want immigrants who refuse to adapt to our way of life. Send your kids to a Muslim school, and stop whining, it's unbecoming and annoying.

Canada is the best country in the world, if you don't like it, LEAVE.

Last week the line-ups for the Islamic School here in Calgary was headline news and what else was news on the same topic? The loud complaints by many of them to open up more schools because there was such a huge demand.

I was dumbstruck! Never have I heard any other group demanding that they get an educational service because they simply wanted it.
Not a great PR move but simply one that reeked of entitlement.

Some of them are pushing the envelope and some of them need to rein those folks in. My kids went to school with many Muslim kids that integrated and participated in mainstream public education. Those are the people that need to speak.

It took me 2 yrs to get my g/son out of music class. I was tired of getting, seriously delayed in oral singing and reading.
Fact, he didn't speak, Fact he was deaf, fact he used american sign language. Finally got him out and into another subject. My argument was he was wasting his and teacher's time, better used on the computer.
But, unless those muslim students are deaf there is no reason to not take music. And why do they need more schools. Years ago they integrated sp needs students into regular classes, so why not muslims as they are special needs, (need to learn canadian values, language, customs)

Tarek Fatah was on Rutherford today (with a guest host)and was discussing many aspects of this topic but the one that stood out, blew me away.
The Mayor of Calgary, Nenshi was apparently asked if he was Canadian or Muslim first and STUMBLED to answer. He stumbled to answer?? and if that doesn't tell it all.
CHQR 770 and I believe it was in the first segment between 9-10. It's worth a listen!
