A Canadian journalist was 'punched in the face' by a Muslim woman after accidentally taking her picture in a public square.

Writing in his column, David Menzies said he was with his nine year old son in Toronto's Yonge-Dundas Square testing out a new digital camera when a woman in a hijab approached him shouting that he could not take a picture of her.

The popular car columnist then says he was punched in the head by the woman and surrounded by a group of people shouting Arabic at him. A police officer then refused to press charges.

Relaying the incident in the Toronto Sun, Mr Menzies said: 'Suddenly, a woman wearing a hijab ran toward me.

'She was part of a group that included two women wearing full face-covering burkas. She was screaming: 'We are Muslim! You do not take pictures of us!' (Odd. I can’t find the “no photos” rule in the Qur’an.)

'I informed the lady I was in a public square in a democracy. I can actually take pictures of whomever I please.

'And then: Ka-pow! Her fist collided with my face. Worse, she almost knocked my new camera from my hands.

'My son and I were then surrounded by a mob of about 20 people, many of whom were speaking Arabic.

'One kept demanding I surrender my camera to him.'

Spotting a group of police officers, Mr Menzies ran over to tell them what had happened.

But despite having Arabic speaking witnesses, the officer said he would not press charges.

Mr menzies continued: 'The officer interrogated the woman.

'She was still hysterical. Good. The constable would encounter first-hand what I had been forced to deal with earlier.

'The cop walked back to me. No charges would be laid, he said, because he believed the woman’s story - namely, she was merely trying to knock the camera out of my hands.'

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
