The Jewish Defence League of Canada, along with the Canadian Hindu Advocacy and the Christian Heritage Party, told a news conference they will protest the controversial prayer sessions next Monday.

from the July 18th, 2011 Canadian Press article Groups plan protest over Muslim prayers being allowed in Toronto school

As you know, I have expended a great deal of electronic ink covering the continuing controversy surrounding the Muslim movement as some have called it, regarding flashpoint crisises ranging from the building of the Ground Zero Mosque to fearful warnings of a global assimilation.

Yet despite these newer developments the long standing debate over prayer in school has again resurfaced in of all places a secondary school in Toronto, Canada.

In this evening's program I welcome to the show a guest panel that includes representatives from the Jewish Defence League of Canada and the Canadian Hindu Advocacy, to talk about both their collective and individual response to the district's decision to allow 300 Muslim students to worship in the school's cafeteria during school hours.

Is Muslim encroachment at  heart of the Valley Park Middle School controversy, or a reflection of the collective apathy of the followers of other faiths who have in the past perhaps failed to rigorously challenge the abolishment of praying in our schools?  Tonight we get the answers to these as well as other pressing questions!
