Layton didn't talk about laughing or the NDP jobs plan. He had much more respect than that. He said that Muslim religious holiday was "an opportunity to renew the spirit and faith in Islam. We are not celebrating the end of Ramadan, but thanking Allah for the help and strength given throughout this special month and asking for that blessing to be extended throughout the year to all of humanity." Note the use of the first person - Layton uses the word "we". He personally wants to extend Allah's blessings to all humanity. He wants to renew Islamic faith.Dhimmi, dhummy or sheer opportunist? You be the judge.
Update: Echoing Jack's sentiments re the extension of Allah's blessings globally/universally, Sheikh Abu Hamza al-Masri has said:
Allah is the only one that must be worshipped on Earth, and the only way to guarantee this is to control all the land masses, air and sea and give Islam the proper channel to be heard by all the people.Maybe we should start calling him "Hooky" Layton.
