Kumbaya In Ottawa - Medic Embraces Imam Who Stated That Shooting Was "Not Islam - Not Muslim"

October 27, 2014

MIM: Note that the Imam offered no apology only denial and the usual taqiya about Islam and Muslims being peaceful and that Islam has no connection to violence.

"...On Saturday, many gathered at the National War Memorial to pay respects to Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, including Imam Haider al-Shawi from the Ottawa al-Mahdi Centre. He laid wreaths at the foot of the monument and spoke to the crowd about the shooting and how it doesn't represent his religion.

Ottawa paramedic Kyle Pooler was among the listeners. The speech was so touching,Pooler said, he was compelled to hug the imam.

"It was very beautiful. All of us were in solidarity with Canada," Pooler told CBC News.

"It's one of those things where there's no need for animosity or hatred," said a choked-up Pooler. "I just love that … how they went up and said in his language and had someone translate for everybody: ‘This is not Islam. This not Muslim. This is not the people we are representing."
