For "Elmo" Elmasry's Canadian Charger, throwing shoes and tomatoes at the US Secretary of State is a "peaceful demonstration"

I suppose by Elmasry's standards, hurling objects at someone is peaceful.

He is, after all, the same Mohamed Elmasry, the founder of the Canadian Islamic Congress, who declared he thinks every Israeli over the age of 18 is a legitimate target for murder and terrorism.

The latest target to have earned a petulant-looking caricature drawing  in Elmasry's 9-11 conspiracy promoting, Islamist online rag The Canadian Charger is Professor Salim Mansur. Mansur now joins the ranks of journalists Jonathan Kay, Ezra Levant and Michael Coren for that honor.

An editorial, with mangled syntax reflecting marginal literacy, by an Erica Aden concludes with the following gems of insight:

You say because Egyptians threw tomatoes and shoes at her motorcade while chanting "Monica", that in your opinion describes a vulgar and violent act that only a Muslims are capable of doing so.  
To me it sounds like a peaceful legitimate demonstration which is an essential component of democracy, so are you proposing that just because Egyptians are Muslims they cannot exercise their democratic rights?  
I agree with your suggestion that "Hillary's message likely will be unheeded", after all her biggest ally in the region and so called "only democracy in the Middle East" Israel has been literally running a concentration camp for its minorities, not a good example for the fledgling democracy of Egypt. 
I hope you do not lecture your students with such biased political outlook.

One thing you can say for good old Elmo - he's always good for a laugh
