He has a rich knowledge of Asian religions and literature and is deeply concerned with issues around peace, all of which are reflected in his writings.

Graeme Macqueen’s thesis is that alleged terrorist incidents that have happened in North America (including the one on Parliament Hill a year ago this fall) are pretexts for fomenting Islamophobia and starting foreign wars..

An examination of four events in the period September 11th , 2001 through October 22nd, 2014 shows that agents of the state, in both the U.S. and Canada, are credible suspects in the physical intimidation of elected bodies of law-makers.

The ‘War on Terror’ is a direct threat to representative democracy.
