Canadian Muslim Forum president Samer Majzoub says it’s heart-breaking to see people who have ‘fled tyranny’ be mistreated here.

The attack has been labelled an act Islamophobia by Samer Majzoub, president of the Canadian Muslim Forum.
“What could this be, beside hatred or racism?” Majzoub said on CTV’s News Channel Saturday.
Unfortunately, attacks on Canadian Muslims are “not something new to the Canadian Muslim community,” Majzoub said, pointing to reports of hijab-wearing women being attacked in public places.
Majzoub repeated the prime minister’s message that the Vancouver attack “does not in any way reflect who we are as Canadians.”

For members of Quebec’s Muslim communities, the debate over the Syrian refugees highlights the distrust of them they say has been deepening for years.

“We don’t ask for the security to be compromised, but to associate (terrorism) with the Syrian refugees is so much injustice,” said Samer Majzoub, president of the Canadian Muslim Forum in Montreal, which advocates for Muslim interests across Canada.

DISTRUST

He said that Quebec appeared to have a higher level of distrust of its Muslims than other Canadian provinces, something he attributed to Quebec’s efforts to retain a distinct French culture in a mostly English-speaking country. Quebec has attempted to separate from the rest of Canada twice since 1980, arguing its laws, language and culture are unique.

“There is no doubt that the sentiment (of Islamophobia) here is felt much higher,” he said.
