Ten years earlier, Arabs …

TORONTO, ONTARIO — May 11, 2020 —Last week when I wrote about a single mosque in Toronto using four loudspeakers to declare “Allah is the Greatest” and that there is “No God, but Allah,” I thought it was the case of one mosque, a few zealots and their formerly communist councillor investing in her Muslim vote bank.
