The 2:30 p.m. background briefing, attended by several prominent
Muslim community leaders, was to be followed by a news conference near
Toronto’s Pearson airport. In recent years, police have made a point of
briefing community leaders before announcing terror arrests.
The arrests come at a time of heightened public concern over terrorism
following the bombings in Boston as well as recent revelations over the
involvement of radicalized Canadian youths in overseas terrorist groups (more at The Natinal Post here)
Muslim leader and law enforcement? What is wrong with this picture? Why isn't law enforcement imposing jihad sensitivity training upon these "Muslim leaders"? Why aren't these Muslim leaders calling for the removal of jihadic doctrine from Islam? Why aren't these Muslim leaders condemning the Islamic texts and teachings that command jihad? What were these Muslims doing there — enforcing sharia language of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police?
These jihadists had intended to blow up the train over Niagara Falls and send it crashing down into the Falls. The evil and savagery of jihadists is unimaginable. The objective was to drop the train
into the Niagara River as it crossed from Canada to USA over the bridge.
