The law has finally caught up with Zionist writer Ezra Levant who thought he could defame Muslims without facing legal consequences. No more. Judge Wendy Matheson ruled on November 27 that Levant had defamed lawyer Khurram Awan when the latter testified before the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal about Mark Steyn's Islamophobic article published in Maclean's magazine in 2006. Steyn called for Muslim genocide.

Ezra Levant of Sun News Network, a rightwing media outlet, always felt he could say or write anything about anyone and get away with it. And for the most part he did because lawsuits are very expensive in Canada.
Yet a young Muslim lawyer Khurram Awan took on Levant in court for libelling him. In a series of blogs, Levant accused Awan of being a “liar,” a “jihadist,” and an “anti-Semite.”
Levant used such headings as “Awan the liar,” and “Awan the liar part two.”
The blogs related to Awan’s testimony before the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal in 2008. This was based on a complaint by a group of students against Mark Steyn’s article that appeared in Maclean’s magazine in 2006.
Titled, “The future belongs to Islam,” Steyn alleged that Muslims would take over Canada because of their fast breeding habits unless “remedial steps” were taken immediately.
Steyn had first articulated these ideas in his book, America Alone, in which he alleged that “genocide” of the European population was already underway because of fast increasing Muslim population.
He applauded the Serbs’ genocide of Muslims in Bosnia and went on to suggest, “if you cannot outbreed the enemy, cull 'em.”
Calling Muslims the “enemy”, he was essentially advocating genocide of Muslims everywhere, including Canada.
Here's the Maclean's article, which is still available online, and which wouldn't be had Steyn "called for Muslim genocide" in any part of it because advocating genocide of a specific group is an indictable offense here in Canada.
And taking down my copy of America Alone from the shelf, I can find no place where Steyn uses the word "genocide" to describe the demonstrable demographic truth that Muslims in Europe are having babies at a much higher rate than non-Muslims. Nor did Steyn ever say Muslims were the "enemy" and "essentially" advocate a "genocide of Muslims everywhere, including Canada."
As for the allegation that Steyn "applauded the Serbs' genocide of Muslims in Bosnia," here's what he actually wrote (on p. 5):
Another [example of what happens when societies fail to reproduce]: why did Bosnia collapse into the worst slaughter in Europe since World War Two? In the thirty years before the meltdown, Bosnian Serbs had declined from 43 percent to 31 percent of the population, while Bosnian Muslims had increased from 26 percent to 44 percent. In a democratic age, you can't buck demography--except through civil war. The Serbs figured that out--as other Continentals will in the years ahead: if you can't outbreed the enemy, cull 'em. The problem Europe faces is that Bosnia's demographic profile is not the model for the entire continent.So, was Steyn really applauding the Serbs' genocide when he wrote "if you can't outbreed the enemy, cull 'em"? Or was he describing--but in no way approving of--the way the Serbs looked at it, and the way other Europeans might look at it in coming years if current birth trends continue?
Mark Steyn--please call your lawyer. I would love him/her to write these Khomeinists a letter threatening to take legal action because of this defamatory post.
Update: America Alone is all about freedom and how easy it is to lose when we in the West submit to the sophistries of the multiculti/"diversity" cult. Hence, this observation, from the book's final chapter (p. 207):
Americans and other Westerners who want their families to enjoy the blessings of life in a free society should understand that the life we've led since 1945 in the Western world is very rare in human history. Our children are unlikely to enjoy anything so placid, and may well spend their adult years in an ugly and savage world unless we decide that who and what we are is worth defending...In the wake of both the rot in Rotherham and ISIS-inspired attacks here in Canada, and the neo-Caliphate attracting young Westerners by the thousands to come wage jihad with them, Steyn's words aren't at all hateful. However, given that the book came out in 2006, what they are is freaking prescient.
