Canine mosque furor on Facebook

TORONTO - A Facebook page inviting people to walk their dogs outside an east-Toronto mosque is becoming a hotbed of hostility.

Facebook administrators removed a posting from the “Walk Your Dog at Mosque” web page early Monday that threatened to throw attending dog owners in a “lake of fire” and shoot their beloved pooches on the spot.

Posted by Ali Shirazi, who identified himself as an Iranian-born resident of Toronto, it threatened all dog owners who plan to attend the Sept. 14 event at the Salahuddin mosque and community centre in the Kennedy Rd.-Eglinton Ave. E. area

The Facebook page emerged in the wake of the Al-Quds Islamic rally held at Queen’s Park just over a week ago. The yearly anti-Israel demonstration, started by Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979, was also attended by counter protesters, one of whom was a Jewish man who brought his 160-pound English Mastiff.
