Funny how that works, huh?

Mustafa Rizvi says he's been labeled a "traitor to Islam" for running against a Muslim MP in last week's federal election. Rizvi ran a distant third for the NDP in Mississauga-Erindale, won by Conservative Bob Dechert, who eked out a 239-vote win over Liberal incumbent Omar Alghabra.

Rizvi, a 28-year-old insurance adjuster, said he's received nearly two dozen threatening phone calls since election day, accusing him of splitting the Muslim vote and costing Alghabra his seat in Parliament.

"I've been getting harassment and phone calls from angry people," he said. "But this isn't faith-based politics; this is a democracy.

"Everybody has a right to run anywhere in the country."
Well, Mustafa... enjoy it while you can.

Good for him, letting the public know he's being threatened by some in the Muslim community should stir up the Islamist from their safe cowardly zones. We cannot tolerate or condone this kind of predatory behavior from the Muslim Community.

Not that religions haven't played a big part in party affiliation in the past, but we are seeing it dissipate.

It used to be all Catholics voted liberal, were told from the pulpit to vote liberal, that ain't happening anymore.

The liberal party ideaology goes against every taught and innate belief a Catholic has.

The Muslims might use the liberal party to gain power,as the Catholic church did, but they would have nothing in common with the belief system of the liberal party.

You would think, being a Muslim and belonging to a liberal party, would be considered a crime against allah.
