  • Torture as Foreign Policy: the Omar Khadr DecisionGail Davidson LLB
    February 18, 2010

    The decision of the Supreme Court of Canada in the Omar Khadr[1] case, which implies that remedies to prevent torture and punish perpetrators are a privilege to be granted or withheld at the pleasure of the Prime Minister, is wrong.

    Doctors, psychologists, and other mental health professionals either turned a blind eye to evidence of torture at Guantánamo or actively assisted. That is what Doctors Vincent Iacopino and Stephen Xenakis found in a review of records for nine prisoners. Their findings are published in PLoS Medicine.

    On Monday 30 July at 11am on Radio 4 there will be a BBC radio programme entitled "Torture in the 21st Century", presented by John Sweeney. I was interviewed extensively for it, though I don't know how much of my interview will feature. I shall be in Ghana then and iPlayer does not work abroad, so if anybody has the technical ability to make a sound file and send it to me, I should be grateful.

  • Tory Immigration Snake OilReuel S. Amdur

    It was some years ago when Bill Davis was Premier of Ontario that I attended a program put on by Toronto Muslims to acquaint people, thought to be of authority or influence, with the Muslim community and its wants and needs. I was invited because I was the Unitarian in a group representative of the various religions working on a broadly based book of prayers and readings for the Toronto Board of Education, a book to replace the sole reliance on the Lord's Prayer in opening exercises in the schools.

    Most neighbours, even good ones, aren't usually willing to take on raw-nerve issues that could potentially generate misunderstanding, bewilderment or fear. Just try mentioning "terrorism," "radicalization," or "jihadist" as topics for a friendly discussion.

  • Towards hate-free speechProf. Dr. Mohamed Elmasry
    May 27, 2010

    We Canadian Muslims support the promotion of democratic values for the public good; hence, we support free speech. This should go without saying but more often than not I find myself saying this over and over.

  • Transgender TreatmentReuel S. Amdur

    In Canada, one of 200 people is a redhead. The same proportion applies for people who are of physically indeterminate gender and, according to Dr. Leah Layman-Pleet, of people who are transgender. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) gives an incidence far lower, less than .2% for persons born as male and less than .1% for females. It has been the common practice for physicians who deliver a baby of indeterminate sex, with mixed genital expression, to operate to transform the baby into a male or female, according to what appears to be the predominate characteristics. Now, many physicians avoid performing such surgery and allow the person to grow up with these anomalies intact.
