Never apologise for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologise for the truth.
― Edmund Burke
My heart and prayers go out to the families of Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent and Corporal Nathan Cirillo. As Canadian soldiers, these two men stood on guard for our country and are therefore everyone’s son, brother and friend.
Prime Minister Harper has rightfully referred to the attackers as terrorists, and has mentioned how the first terrorist was definitely “ISIL-inspired” even though much of our cowardly and confused media, such as the CBC, won’t use the “T” word.
When people come to kill you in the name of Allah, but you still can’t bring yourself to discuss Islamic terrorism, you have a mental problem, and you’re putting people’s lives in danger with your militant brand of politically correct multiculturalism.
I sat through over an hour and a half of CBC “news” last night and the word Muslim was not mentioned once, even though our Parliament Hill jihadist converted to Islam, was a member of the Masjid Al Salaam Mosque – he is reported to have had a tumultuous relationship with Muslim leaders in Vancouver and Burnaby – and had been active with ISIS through social media.
Who are you trying to protect, oh prophets of post-colonial politeness?
Whether you mean to or not, you’re creating cover for the fascistic philosophy of radical Islam, which is sprouting like a cancer from within our country, and many other western democratic nations.
With all of its faults, I am however, aware of how this credo has sponsored much diversity. After all, it’s led to the formation of such diverse groups as Hezbollah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, ISIS, etc. – diversity really works when arch enemies such as Sunnis and Shias who kill each other at funerals can agree on destroying the West, meaning us…
Expunging the word terror from your headlines, and the word Muslim from your report is a blatant obfuscation of the painful truth: that not only our values face the muzzle of a gun (and much worse) but our very physical existence is being threatened by a fascistic ideology that contains much more firepower and brutality than the blood-soaked hands of two “individuals” – using that word as if to say that these heinous acts are not part of a greater network of sickness and terror.
The myth of the lone wolf
We’re past the point of niceties now; we are literally under attack by the Islamic State.
Yes, the Islamic State itself – not ISIS wannabes, or a couple of meshugenahs.
ISIS central command lies right before you. Its boot camp, full of mental obstacle courses which train the devotee to embrace martyrdom exist in a constant state of dynamism on Twitter and YouTube.
Social Media is the purview of all, not only the persecuted, but also the persecutors, even though many people like to believe in the fantasy of freedom that a hashtag may bring to those in Hong Kong or Iran.
If one follows through on ISIS spokesman Abu Mohammad Adnani’s command to kill as many Canadians as possible, he or she becomes an ISIS operative and is quickly on the road to advancing rank to that of a shahid.
If you can kill a disbelieving American or European – especially the spiteful and filthy French – or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be. Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him.
– Abu Mohammad Adnani, September 22, 2014
A pernicious message and foreboding question have been delivered by the world community of Islamic terrorists with yesterday’s flagrant attack on our nation’s capital: “We are ready for you, Canada. Are you ready for us?”
With the Toronto 18, and many other thwarted attacks from Germany to Times Square, even our own city has not been spared this infectious disease which it exported to North Africa; unfortunately, some Londoners are still too uncomfortable to even acknowledge that it exists.
Liberal Party leader, Justin Trudeau, a few weeks ago in Parliament criticized PM Harper for getting involved with the coalition to fight ISIS in Iraq. I personally supported the move because as Sir Edmund Burke once stated, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
Similarly, “When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.”
I think the first thing that needs to happen is a reality check. And that reality check needs to begin with our federal police service, the RCMP.
The RCMP stated today that the Parliament Hill killer “was an individual who may have had extremist beliefs”. Right… So people with moderate views desperately want to travel to Syria, which the RCMP acknowledged about Zehaf-Bibeau a couple of sentences later. And if killing a solider in front of the National War Memorial isn’t definitely extreme, then what is?
And why only say “extremist” when it’s about Islamic extremism specifically. Environmental activist extremists don’t shoot people down at their seat of government or kill soldiers with their cars.
Why the reticence? Why fear mentioning what’s really going on here?
