I recently attended the Free Thinking Film society and The International Free Press Society's Bat Ye'or event in Ottawa. We also heard her husband David Littman and Christian convert from Islam , Sam Soloman. The three of them spoke in London and Toronto as well. It was a great evening.
Sam Soloman talked about his experience as a Muslim and a convert. He is intimately aware of the Islamic scriptures. Littman spoke about his experiences at the UN in Switzerland and their " human rights" apparatus. Bat Ye'Or , who I had previously met in Halifax at Ciitas, spoke about the dangers of the encroaching caliphate and our future dhimmi status. I had a chance to go out and have dinner with Bat Ye'or,David Littman, Sam Solomon, Fred Litwin, Mary Lou Ambrosio and Bjorn Larson. They are all lovely people. Sam Soloman didn't want his picture taken, as some Muslims react badly to conversion. Bat Ye'or and David Littman have been married more than 50 years. They are all heros. They understand the jihadi threat.
Thanks to my friend Lumpy Grumpy Frumpy for the video from the London event.
