TORONTO – Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s office says two scheduled events today in Toronto with Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai have been cancelled.

RIA Novosti is confirming reports seen on Twitter in the past few hours that the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad has been hit by rockets/mortars by ISIS:

“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.
