Street imam

Some street imam (translation: A preacher who’s so lame he can’t even find a mosque to preach at) says Canada needs to change its rules and force women to cover up more, to avoid sexual assault.

Canadian laws should be changed to require women to “cover themselves” to prevent sexual assaults, says an Islamic street preacher in Toronto.

Al-Haashim Kamena Atangana, a 33-year-old Islamic convert, called for legal change in response to recent sex attacks at York University.

Atangana is connected with a group called Muslim Support Network and is one of a number of street-corner clerics commonly seen at the Yonge and Dundas Sts.

In an e-mail to the Toronto Sun, Atangana said “the reason … these sex attacks are continuously happening is because (of) Canadian laws, which give too much freedom to women” when it comes to how they dress.

“You should take your example from the way Muslim women dress,” he wrote. “Why does (sic) Muslim women who wear long dress and covers her head aren’t targeted for sex attacks?”

Right. Because there’s no rape in Muslim countries.

You need strong arguments against this kind of stuff. Personally, I like a stiff palm strike to the chin. That’s how you deal with a guy who grabs you because he can’t control himself.

Bonus question: Will the Slutwalk organizers protest this one and go strut their stuff on that preacher’s street corner?

    I really don’t understand why this wing-nut is being given so much press. His misogynist views are horribly outdated (thank god) And by giving him such a large platform, you are spreading his views for other idiots to follow.

    What a nutjob!!!! Send him to Egypt or some other Muslim dominated country and let him spout this crap there instead of Canada.

    You are in Canada and are trying to change our ways? The Muslim Network should be banned from being active – I would even go so far to say that his remarks are “hate” based and that’s illegal.

    If Muslim men can’t control themselves then I’d say they’re a bunch of weak, pathetic excuses for men! You came to CANADA for a better life, leave Canadians alone as we think the extremists are completely vile, evil crackpots!!!
