Imam Rizvi of East End Madrassah Fame an Award-Winning "Twinner"? Now, That's "Scalarious"!

You know that East End Madrassah that was teaching some obnoxious things about Jews, the one that's renting space in a Toronto public school from the Toronto District School Board? How shocked/amused would you be to learn that the Shia outfit that runs the joint--the Islamic Shia Ithna-Asheri Jamaat (ISIJ)--was one of the Muslim organizations that took part in that notorious "Twinning" event of 2010? Even feeling as lousy as I do suffering from the Mother of All Colds, I couldn't help but burst out laughing when I read this in a report by Paul Lungen in this week's Canadian Jewish News--"Madrassah apology said unsatisfactory." (Alas, I can't find the article online):
Responding to concerns about the curriculum's content, the ISIJ ran a "communique" on the front page of its website (, signed by Imam Rivzi. It states that the ISIJ has long been involved in interfaith dialogue and has won a Harmony Award with its neighbour, Temple Har Zion, for promoting Canadian values.
So you mean to say that at the same time it was teaching Shia moppets that Jews are "crafty" and Nazi-like they were playing "pass the tasty samosas" with the interfaithy Jews next door? And they even won a prize for the subterfuge?

All I can say is that that is both scary and hilarious--or scalarious (a word I just invented to describe such taqiyyah-infused interfaithy endeavours and the easily-gulled Jews who fall for 'em).
