"Whatever Is For the Sake of Allah Will Go On and Continue. And What's For Other Than the Sake of Allah It Will Be Severed"

That's how this YouTube video, a promo for next month's Raising the Islamic Spirit conference in Toronto, wraps up.

Featured speakers at this year's event include some notables who have appeared in previous years. David Harris mentions two of them in this 2012 article. They are:
  • Imam Zaid Shakir, an American cleric who likes "to trade in 9/11 conspiracy theories, aiming for Islamic rule of America, and believing that the U.S. government is at war with Islam."
  • Imam Siraj Wahhaj, "US unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing."
Other speakers include:
  • Dr. Munir al-Kassem, about whom Quebec-based anti-jihad blogger Point de Bascule writes here;
  • Sheik Hamza Yusuf, about whom Blazing Cat Fur writes here; and, last but definitely not least,
  • Tony Blair's wacky, Judeophobic "revert" sister-in-law, Lauren Booth.
With that sort of roster, attendees of this year's event are sure to be moved and inspired.
