Top Canadian General Hillier Wants More Muslims in Our Military
CBC reports that at a Sunday night dinner hosted by Ottawa's Muslim Association, our Canadian forces Commander called on Muslims to join the military to increase our military's diversity. A young muslim present was quoted as saying he needed a "clearer idea of why Canada is in Afghanistan before he would consider a career in the military". He also said, "First of all, I'm a Muslim, so I don't like to fight," said Kaddoura. "So unless there's a clear purpose for me to go there, to change it, then I wouldn't do it, you know what I mean?"
