Inspired by Andre Poulin’s apparent charisma and his message, five Toronto men followed him to Syria and ultimately into the arms of ISIS, CBC News has learned.
Poulin, from Timmins, Ont., converted to Islam and went by the name Abu Muslim. He joined the jihadist fight in Syria in 2012, in the process creating an 11-minute propaganda video for ISIS aimed at Westerners.
He died while fighting in northern Syria in the summer of 2013 at the age of 24.
Canada’s spy agency is eyeing the threat of a budding anti-Islam movement online.
CSIS flagged well-known warnings of the persistent menace posed by terrorist groups al-Qaida, Hezbollah and the more violent and radical Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL, say notes obtained through the Access to Information Act.
But under the heading Domestic Extremism, the spy service also underscored what might be the flip side of that coin — the recent development “of a Canadian online anti-Islam movement, similar to ones in Europe.”
CSIS characterized it as an “ongoing risk, particularly as its proponents advocate violence.”
The Sept. 18 briefing for Blaney’s office came a little more than a month before soldiers were killed in Canadian attacks just two days apart — murders committed by young men that authorities say were motivated by Islamic extremism.
(CSIS needs to be reminded that immigration along with the economy and a few other subjects are the single most important determiners of the direction of a country. That to say those who disagree with the current notions of unlimited immigration open to people who are raised with a culture which seeks to destroy liberal democracy and individual rights and are diametrically opposed to the principles of the Enlightenment, are suggesting that we should not have anything like a democracy. Democratic nations specifically are about public input in critical policies. Targeting those who oppose public policies in a democratic way is opposing democracy)
9. CBC does radio segment on the British rape gang phenomenon. Sort of. They seemed to have omitted a thing or two from their report though.
Thank you M., Richard, Don C., CB Sashenka, ML., Wrath of Khan and numerous other people thoughtful enough to send in news stories that need to be seen in the greater context. It is somewhat appalling that CSIS is pretending that any online resistance to islamic jihad in its various forms in order to preserve our own history, law and culture is in any way equatable to islamic manifest destiny. Unless they are speaking about some sites and people I am unfamiliar with.
That being said, after reading reports of how truly awful Islamic motivated behaviour against unbelievers and even their own children can be, it is easy to lose one’s temper and post things out of shock and horror on sites like this one which may seem to counsel or indicate violence. It would be a good time to take a deep breath and make all comments in the most rational manner I suspect as CSIS, like the British enforcement, is probably itching to make an example of some other group in order to make a bogus claim of some kind of ‘balance’. Best if its none of us.
