If you think we have a homegrown Islamic terrorist — lone wolf — problem here in America, it seems our compatriots to the north do as well. As reported by the Washington Post, “A young convert to Islam who killed a Canadian soldier in a hit-and-run had been on the radar of federal investigators, who feared he had jihadist ambitions and seized his passport when he tried to travel to Turkey, authorities said Tuesday. Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney said the attack Monday was “clearly linked to terrorist ideology.” Quebec Police spokesman Guy Lapointe said the act was deliberate and that one of the two soldiers was in uniform.”
Let us remember the heinous and barbaric attack of British Soldier Lee Rigby by two Nigerian jihadists. And we know ISIS has called for attacks — actually terming it “slaughter” — of American service members including their families, on social media. This just goes to show once again, we need to take this threat seriously.
The one good thing about this episode — after a high speed chase, this jihadist was shot to death — which should have happened to Alton Nolen in Oklahoma City. We’ll have to see the full details of what’s unfolding in Ottawa to see if we can add that attack to the list.
We must begin to root out the snake pits from whence these homegrown jihadists find their venom. The time is coming when we will have to finally begin shutting down the Islamic centers and mosques where violent jihadism is being preached and proselytized – and not like Houston’s mayor subpoenaing Christian pastors for their sermons and church bulletins.
Our western civilizational values are being undermined right before our eyes and we insist on dismissing this abhorrent behavior — all to the gain of our enemies, and the deaths of our fellow citizens.
According to the Washington Post, “police said the suspect, Martin Couture-Rouleau, called 911 to report his hit-and-run as police chased him in the Quebec city of Saint-Jean-Sur-Richelieu. He later was shot dead by police after his car flipped over into a ditch and he brandished a knife as he exited his car. A second soldier suffered minor injuries in the attack. Couture-Rouleau, 25, was one of 90 people in the country suspected of intending to join fights abroad or who have returned from overseas, according to Royal Canadian Mounted Police Commissioner Bob Paulson. He first came to attention of authorities in June because of Facebook postings that showed he had become radicalized and wanted to leave the country to fight, said Royal Canadian Mounted Police Supt. Martine Fontaine.”
So why was this savage not apprehended back in June? Is it that — as with Alton Nolen — we continue to play the political correctness game and not confront this enemy, and the pit of snakes? Could this attack have been thwarted with the resolve to connect the dots based on the trends being displayed?
According to the Post, “police seized his passport at the airport in July when he tried to travel to Turkey, Fontaine said. He was arrested and questioned but there wasn’t enough evidence to charge him with a crime, she said. Fontaine said police subsequently met with him several times, including as recently as Oct. 9, when she said he indicated that wanted to take steps to change. They also met his parents and the imam of his mosque and tried to exert a positive influence over him.”
So much for the positive influence — the mosque should be shut down and the imam deported. Perhaps that’s the only thing that will get through to the Muslim community — you will be held culpable and complicit in the actions of these jihadists who have been attending your mosques and Islamic centers. There has to come a time when we no longer accept “he was a good boy and we don’t know how this could have happened.”
Now the cultural jihadist apologists will retort with the weak relativist argument that we should then do the same for churches that have folks committing crimes. Just a minute my cowardly progressive socialist friends. These individuals are killing us based on the ideology preached in their gathering places — furthermore, their social media indicates their desire to commit jihad which is a violent tenet of Islam — I ain’t buying that lovey-dovey jihad personal struggle crap. I want to find out who and where these cretins are being radicalized and drain that pit — and as long as we allow these imams and mullahs to deny any responsibility and accountability, it will continue.
And as long as we continue to find blame elsewhere and dismiss these actions we will suffer.
For example, I want to know where and from whom did three American teenage girls from Denver get the idea to join ISIS. They were caught in Germany trying to get to Syria. As reported by ABC News, “The girls have not been identified, but law enforcement officials said two are sisters — 15 and 17 years old — and one is 16 years old. The two sisters are from Somalia and the 16-year-old is from Sudan, according to a federal law enforcement source briefed on the case. This is part of a worrisome trend of “disaffected youth” who are being radicalized, the official said, pointing to the wider phenomenon of foreign fighters converging on the conflict in the region. There have been other cases of high school age kids trying to get to Syria that haven’t been made public, the official said.”
We’ve seen this happening in the Minneapolis area, and previously there was another American girl from Denver who was caught and charged for aiding ISIS. So who was it, where, and who provided three girls the funding and resources to travel to Germany and potentially onto Syria? Someone bought those tickets.
My point is simple. We have to view this as an enemy infiltration and attack it as such. No more Mr. and Mrs. Nice Guys, it’s time to find the source and eliminate it. Will it happen under this president, Barack Hussein Obama? I can answer that with his own words: “Let me make this very clear, ISIS is not Islamic.” Nuff said!
These Islamo-fascists and jihadists want to take America? Molon Labe!
