Protest against radical Islam outside Reviving the Islamic Spirit convention

On Saturday, December 24, 2016, the second day of the annual conference “Reviving the Islamic Spirit” (RIS), a group of Christian evangelists and fellow activists gathered in front of the Toronto Convention Centre to protest against the radical teachings of Islam which are adopted by major Islamic groups around the world, including in Canada.

Sandra Solomon, an ex-Muslim of Palestinian descent who was raised in Saudi Arabia, told her own personal experience under Islamic Law (Sharia) explaining that she was taught to believe that the jihad and the death in the path of Allah is one of the major principles of Islam.

Solomon is an outspoken activist against radical Islam in Canada. During the last year, she took part in several protests in the Greater Toronto Area to increase the awareness of Canadians to the danger of radicalization and promote a message of peace based on separation of state and religion and zero tolerance towards the use of religious beliefs to promote hatred.

She expressed her disappointment that CBC did not cover the protest even though it was held just across the street where its offices are located. Police separated between the two groups to protect the protester and prevent any friction.
