Afghan-Canadian journalist Nelofer Pazira has told the Independent that yesterday’s attack in Ottawa happened because the country’s Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper “pushed Canada into joining the US-led war in the Middle East”.
She claimed that the country had “become divided” when the government put a group of Muslims on a watch list, and suggested the running over of a soldier earlier this week was in retaliation.
Paziri said: “Harper’s pro-American policies appear to have turned Canada – and indeed the seat of political power in the capital Ottawa – into a target. Now Canadians will not only be worried about travelling to Europe, America or the Middle East – but wondering if they’re even safe inside their own homes.”
Egypt’s National Defense Council declared a three-month state of emergency in restive northern part of Sinai Peninsula in the aftermath of a coordinated assault on an army checkpoint that killed 30 troops.
At least 27 soldiers have been killed in an attack on an army checkpoint in Egypt’s North Sinai, state media has reported.
The attack on Friday afternoon hit an army checkpoint at Karm al-Qawadeis, southwest of Sheikh Zuweid.
Egyptian sources told Al Jazeera that a suicide car bomber detonated his explosives near the checkpoint’s magazine, causing it and an army vehicle to explode. Fighters then attacked the site with guns and a rocket-propelled grenade.
(This was a terrorist attack in which a baby was killed by a Hamas member which Hamas endorsed as a great attack)
Hours after a Palestinian terrorist drove his car into a crowd waiting at a light rail station in Jerusalem, the US consulate in the city issued a memo referring to the attack as a “traffic incident”.
A three-month-old baby was killed and seven other people were wounded when Abdel Rahman a-Shaludi drove his car across incoming traffic to strike the people waiting at the station. The baby girl, Chaya Zissel Braun, had American citizenship.
The memo was sent to employees of the American consulate, which is based in East Jerusalem. It asks staff to report “any emergency.”
Thank you M., Richard, Yucki, GoV., and many more. Just starting to catch up. Check back soon.
A doctor in New York City who recently returned from treating Ebola patients in Guinea tested positive for the Ebola virus Thursday, becoming the city’s first diagnosed case. [...] Even as the authorities worked to confirm that Mr. Spencer was infected with Ebola, it emerged that he traveled from Manhattan to Brooklyn on the subway on Wednesday night, when he went to a bowling alley, and then took a taxi home.

Some prisoners in the highest-security unit of the Guantanamo Bay detention center have launched a protest against what they consider the religiously offensive use of female guards to move them around the U.S. base in Cuba, lawyers for the men say.
Prisoners designated by the government as “high-value detainees” because of their allegedly significant involvement in terrorism recently began refusing to meet with defense lawyers appointed by the Pentagon to defend them against war crimes charges unless the military agrees to use only men to escort them to meetings, according to several lawyers involved.
6. Air strike hits Islamic State jihadis on a hill
Thank you CB Sashenka, M., GoV., Wrath of Khan, Richard, WTD., TL., ML., Marc C. and so very many more who send in materials regularly.
A note to all who help this site:
As you can read from the Agenda and Views of this site, the plan was to help wake Canadians and Western peoples up to the facts and nature of Islam in order to change a few simple attitudes and regulations that could solve the serious problems of a waning liberal democracy or republic based on Greek thought and individual liberty. Ideally, and had we acted soon enough, without much or even any bloodshed, at least on our own lands.
That ship has sailed.
We now have to re task ourselves to be frank. It will get much much worse before it gets better, So I want to thank you all for the help everyone has given the site and ask people, to quote Lady McBeth, “to screw their courage to the sticking place” and brace themselves for more vigilance and more work. For the moment, our effort will have to be to simply continue to gather evidence of what the nature of the threat is, and accurately predict what is coming our way so that sooner or later, the general public will have to defer to the authority of those who called it right. Hopefully before Western nations fall to a ‘Strong Man Strategy‘ like Greece and Hungary are now, and like Germany and Italy did so many decades ago.
So once again, thank you all for the hard work. I look forward to continuing to work with such a great bunch of dedicated people. I can’t think of a group I would want to be working with more than all of you.
With certainty of values and clarity of the rightness of the cause,
1. It would appear that the divide in the US on key issues has grown wider, and with potential for more violence. Islam and Islamic politics seem to now be a central feature of the Ferguson ongoing race bait-fetival. From Creeping Sharia
he hatchet-wielding man who attacked four NYPD officers earlier today and was then shot dead by police may have had ties to ISIS, sources told Vocativ.
Law-enforcement sources we spoke with identified Zale Thompson as the armed man who charged at a group of NYPD uniformed police assembled on a street corner in Jamaica, Queens, at around 2 p.m. today. The 32-year-old Muslim, who lived in Queens, struck one of the officers in the back of the head with his hatchet and gashed another on the arm, the police said.
Obama is gonna be busy tonight along with Trudeau and Cameron. Lots of denying to do.
Earlier today I had an interesting discussion with a Lebanese Christian who explained to me that in 1973 and 74, muslims attacked lone soldiers in Lebanon here and there exactly like we see now here in Canada. By 1975 they were at full out war with muslims. Of course, we here in Canada don’t have muslim countries on our border in the strictest of senses, so we won’t be attacked in quite the same way.
(It is worth clicking over to see the standing ovation given to the Sgt. at arms who shot the muslim terrorist who’s father was also a muslim terrorist who waged jihad in Libya, by all the members of the Canadian Parliament who knew for a cold hard fact he had saves some of their lives yesterday with his weapon and his skill)
He and 17 other Muslim-American leaders signed a letter condemning the tactics of the Islamic State terrorist group and offering theological rebuttals. It is a letter that earned them tremendous positive publicity by news outlets that didn’t notice that the letter endorsed the resurrection of the Caliphate and Sharia governance, specifically its brutal hudud punishments.
“Hudud punishments are fixed in the Qu’ran and Hadith and are unquestionably obligatory in Islamic Law,” point 16 of the letter states.
It also used vague language that could justify other acts of terrorism, such as attacks by Hamas on Israel. The condemnation of the Islamic State’s targeting of American journalists contains an exception that approves of jihad against reporters they view as dishonest.
According to residents, a large group of insurgents attacked the two villages on Saturday
Dozens of women and girls from two villages in Nigeria’s north-eastern Adamawa state have been abducted by suspected militants, residents say.
6. This is way off topic in most ways. But it does speak to people’s sense of urgency to cling to a cherished belief, whether it is that all three great Abrahamic religions are basically the same, or that man is destroying the planet through CO2, or that organic food is somehow important. Make sure you turn on the cc button for the English subtitles.

Thank you M., Richard, TL., UK Pete, Buck, Wrath of Khan, and many more. Stay tuned. More to come. This morning’s Lowell Green show had some excellent calls. I am waiting till the show goes online to grab them. For those that want to hear the whole show at CFRA.com check out the caller, ‘Joanne’ who nailed it all.
His father’s history offers a hint of what Mr. Bathurst was concerned about. In 2011, a Montrealer named “Belgasem Zahef” was quoted in a Washington Times dispatch from the front in Libya, where he had travelled to join the rebel fight. The man described being detained at the Zawiyah oil terminal, where he witnessed torture.
At the Burnaby mosque, Mr. Bathurst said his friend’s “erratic” behaviour – he did not elaborate – caused frictions with the elders at the house of worship, who asked him to stop attending prayers. At that time, Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau was living in a barely furnished single-room apartment.
Mr. Bathurst said he recalls his friend being arrested at the mosque a few years ago after bizarrely calling police to tell them about a crime he had committed many years before.
1. The Mark Steyn interview in the previous post with Brian Lilley is really excellent. But he made one point that is one of those things that gets under my skin and was great to hear from a high profile person like Mark Steyn. The whole interview can be heard here.
(What is interesting is the British government and their official policy of not blaming Islam as it appears racist and instead, referring to the constant abuse of the British people by muslims as by ‘Asians’, have made systemic racism the default to avoid the perception of racism by nailing the ideology. As a consequence, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu and Sikh people with nothing but the best intent and love of the UK will lose business while white Muslims will still be sent out on calls to pick up 12 year old British girls)
Rochdale minicab firm Car 2000 is offering the choice after two taxi drivers of Pakistani origin were jailed for their part in the sex trafficking and rape of young white girls in the town.
The firm, which bought out Eagle Taxis – a company at the centre of the grooming scandal, has revealed that many customers were asking for white or ‘local’ drivers, it was reported last night.

4. Ezra Levant commentary with the whole of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s speech on this weeks attacks.
THE debate about climate change is finished – because it has been categorically proved NOT to exist, one of the world’s leading meteorologists has claimed.
John Coleman, who co-founded the Weather Channel, shocked academics by insisting the theory of man-made climate change was no longer scientifically credible.
Instead, what ‘little evidence’ there is for rising global temperatures points to a ‘natural phenomenon’ within a developing eco-system.
In an open letter attacking the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, he wrote: “The ocean is not rising significantly.
“The polar ice is increasing, not melting away. Polar Bears are increasing in number.
“Heat waves have actually diminished, not increased. There is not an uptick in the number or strength of storms (in fact storms are diminishing).

A woman was detained in the Turkish capital Ankara after sharing a photo of her feet standing on pages of the Quran via her Twitter account.
The Ankara Public Prosecutor’s Office took action against the Twitter account @kedibiti after Ankara Mayor Melih Gökçek, who is known as an active Twitter user, filed a complaint about the account, also alleging that it had “insulted the president and the government.”
Prosecutors discovered that the Twitter account’s owner was a 36-year-old Istanbul resident, identified only as G.Y. The Istanbul Police Department called her to the police station, and she arrived at the station in Istanbul’s Gayrettepe neighborhood, where she reportedly explained that she was an atheist.
She was released after questioning, but a lawsuit has been opened against her on charges of “triggering hatred in society” and “slandering.”

EU Ambassador to Iraq reveals EU states purchasing oil from jihadist terror group, refuses to divulge names of states. [...]

BAGHDAD, October 22 (RIA Novosti) – The US Embassy in Iraq located in central Baghdad has been shelled with rockets, Al-Mustakillah news agency reported Wednesday citing a security source.
“On Tuesday night the US Embassy was hit with three rockets. They were fired from a park area in the Dora district [in southern Baghdad],” the agency’s source said.
I have been caught in a near ‘fog of war’ by the events of today in Ottawa and have not managed to keep track of all the fantastic work by everyone who has sent in material for this post and the previous one. M., Oz-Rita, CB Sashenka, Richard, Wrath of Khan, Maria J., TL., and lots of people who took the time and trouble to follow events and send them in. This is a collective effort and thank you all for your vigilance.
The sad truth of it is that few minds will change because of today’s events and of course the real threat is not in kinetic attacks but in the interfaith committees where our culture and rights and freedoms are traded away for Islamic norms and in the city councils where we make special provisions for muslim buildings so we have to adhere to every letter of our municipal laws and muslims can ignore them freely etc.
Terrorism is frankly just a distraction from our rapid loss to sharia. We must watch that closely. Its dull plodding work with the sexiness of an old dishcloth and requires frequent aspirins and anti emetics. But that is where the real war is.
There is lots of other news and a similar attack is taking place in Israel. Please check the comments under this post for newer information. I will not be posting other posts besides updates on this for obvious reasons but commenters are putting links in for other news in the comments.
(I have put times in where I had them. The rest of the reports are not necessarily in chronological order)
***I Was just informed that the guard who was shot at the War Memorial has no ammunition in his rifle. He was uniformed, and had a C7 with zero ammunition in it by policy. This thing could have ended much faster if military personnel had actual ammunition in their weapons. To give a person a visible gun with no ammo is the most dangerous thing I can think of. ***

The State Department scrambled on Monday to respond to a weekend New York Times scoop revealing that the Obama administration intends to bypass Congress in reducing sanctions on Iran – the Times‘ exact language was that “President Obama will do everything in his power to avoid letting Congress vote on” an agreement with the Islamic republic – as both lawmakers expressed opposition and journalists pressed for clarification.
Concerned there might be a backlash against their community, many hope to stress that Martin Couture-Rouleau’s murderous act of mowing down a member of the Armed Forces should not be connected to his recent conversion to Islam.
The Canadian Muslim Forum say they were shocked by news of Couture-Rouleau’s actions and have outright condemned it.
(Yawn. What was that? “Imams in Calgary express concern over a backlash against Muslims following tomorrow’s scheduled beheading” Anon)
The FBI tracked down three American teenage girls in Germany while they were en route to Syria to join militant groups, a law enforcement official told ABC News today.
The girls, who are from the Denver area, were trying “to fulfill what they believe is some vision that has been put out on a slick media campaign” by radical groups in Syria, including ISIS, the official said.
Thank you Yucki, M., Wrath of Khan, GoV., and all. I would like to take this opportunity to thank this amazing community that takes the time and trouble to dig through an ocean of material to find actual information that reflects the rapidly evolving reality of Islam and its effects on Western Civilization.
