On guard for terrorist attack by David HarrisThe NBC report in the United States that “intelligence officials tell NBC News that Canadian authorities have heard would-be terrorists discussing potential ISIS-inspired ‘knife and gun’ attacks against U.S. and Canadian targets inside Canada” and that “both U.S. and Canadian officials fear the beheading of an innocent person in a public place, or the slashing of citizens on a crowded street until police arrive to shoot and martyr the terrorists” has scared people to no end. The director of the International Intelligence Program for INSIGNIS Strategic Research Inc. and a former senior manager at CSIS says the questions are not where, what or who, but when? “As you know, the fact is that this kind of slashing, shooting suicide attack is coming whether or not the NBC version is accurate,” David B. Harris warned Thursday
Canadian Watchdog Report Chastises RCMP for Islamist EngagementThe report shows that the RCMP has fallen into the same trap as some U.S. law enforcement agencies in that they have established close relations with radical Islamist groups who pretend to be moderate. The danger is that the RCMP legitimizes militant groups and radicals who should be shunned rather than dignified as respected moderate allies of the Canadian government in its war against war against Islamic terrorism. By embracing Islamic extremists who masquerade as moderates, the RCMP effectively has ostracized genuine Islamic moderates in Canada who deserve recognition for their courage in speaking out against the terrorists.
Terror's Virus on the Northern Border by David Harris
The Islamic Social Services Association (ISSA), led by Shahina Siddiqui, joins the NCCM and RCMP in authorship on the handbook's cover. Canada's outreach counter-radicalization world seems to be a small, if not inbred, one, for Siddiqui happens also to be a member of both the NCCM's board, and the RCMP's national and Manitoba "diversity" committees.
No wonder many members of the public reacted with disbelief and disgust to the handbook fiasco. Or that RCMP ranks fell into a mass of post-publication panic and confusion. The day after the handbook's roll-out, a blushed-out RCMP, getting desperate enquiries from Canada's now-mortified Office of the Minister of Public Safety, scrambled out a news release. It said that the force was responsible for only one (benign) section of the handbook, and claimed improbably that the "tone" of some of the publication had caused the RCMP to pull out of the project at the last minute. Awfully "last minute," considering it was the day after launch that the RCMP news release emerged.
Meet the Islamist group that almost succeeded in riding the coattails of the RCMP: CAIR-Canada or NCCM
“Mr. Gardee does not speak for any Muslim in this country. But he speaks for every Islamist in this country. You have to make the distinction. A Muslim is someone who practices his faith. An Islamist is someone uses the faith to practice fascist politics.”
CSIS limits its investigations to individual Islamists but does not investigate mosques (nor other Islamic institutions)On October 27, 2014, CSIS Assistant Director Michael Peirce testified in front of the Standing Senate Committee on National Security and Defence. During an exchange with Senator Daniel Lang, Mr. Peirce acknowledged that “There are individuals who are espousing a radical extremist view of Islam,” but he seemed to imply that Islamic institutions, and mosques in particular, are not part of the radicalization problem.
