“Imam Sherif El Sayed of the Al-Rashid Mosque in Edmonton gives sermons saying that Muslim women in Canada must be obedient to their husbands in a way that would make a Saudi Arabian king proud.
“According to El Sayed, women can’t let anyone into the house, they can’t even leave their own house without their husband’s permission.
“Today [the Al-Rashid Mosque’s] goal is Sharia law. And a radicalization of Canadian Muslims. That mosque preaches the subordination of women, the marginalization of gays, and the killing of Muslim moderates.
“But, hey, there’s a few votes there for Justin Trudeau. It’s all good, right? When he’s behind closed doors at the mosque, he talks with the extremists themselves.”
