Canadian Islamic Congress Steps Into The Future

Dr. Mohamed Elmasry, founding national President of the Canadian Islamic Congress, announced today that he will step down, effective January 1, 2009 after leading the organization through its first decade.

He will be joining the board of The Canadian Charger, a newly established mainstream multi-media online magazine using the latest in communications technology. Its public launch is planned for late spring of 2009.

Activists of any stripe tend to be crusty bastards, but at some point you start hindering rather than helping your cause. Mo Elmasry reached that point some time ago.

h/t Five Feet of Fat Chick, who has her uses.

PS. Although Google has no information on any magazine with that title. So, a hoax email?

This announcement has sent poor old sad old Kathie into a fit of apoplexy:

"Also nice to know you can try to destroy lives, lie through your teeth, advocate mass murder and claim you invented the Blackberry -- and still get a big shot job in Canada."

Such astonishing hyperbole. She's worse than Hitler.

Doesn't seem to be any record of the release elsewhere, including the CIC website.

Which future would that be?
The 16th. century??

Why did you remove the "S," Paul?

I'm didn't ti. Why is your name capitalized now?

Paul's sock-puppeting. He's the only one who bolds the selections he quotes.

Unsurprisingly, it's a pretty lame attempt.

As for the casing of my pseudonym, I believe that's a result of a Blogger upgrade.

Don't look now but your paranoia is showing again ti.

Ti-Guy said...

Don't be peevish because you were busted on your sock-puppeting, Paul.

Yup there's a gem hyperbole vs gas chambers - yes far worse.
