Protest at Mississauga, Ontario mosque

Mississauga.com – October 23, 2011

Protesters were on the sidewalk in front of the Islamic Society of North America Canadian headquarters demonstrating their opposition to a Calling the World Back to Allah conference featuring speakers who have been previously linked to allegations of anti-Semitic and anti-gay remarks.

The full-day conference is part of the Canada launch tour of the Islamic Education and Research Academy (IERA), a British organization seeking to establish a presence in Toronto and Montreal. They say the conference was held to build bridges amongst Muslim communities in Canada.
