What Canada witnessed on Monday as well as Wednesday and what America witnessed on Thursday were not murders committed by the mentally ill. Taken independently on a case by case basis they may appear this way, but they are not. When the media consistently runs with the narrative of attributing these murders to “lone wolf attacks“, it masks the evidence of the development of a pattern.
This pattern of behavior has become so distinctive that the manner in which it is conducted can no longer be attributed as acts of senseless violence. When the cases are examined from an overall perspective, the perspective becomes clear and the modus operandi becomes blatantly evident.
This past month alone has proved this point as the evidence and threats speak for themselves regardless of the false narrative portrayed by the media. The examples are copious beginning with the threat.
The threat was issued on October 9th. According to Catherine Herridge of Fox News, the U.S. Army issued a warning to military personnel and their families in response to a new threat by ISIS calling on its supporters to use the yellow pages and social media to find the addresses of military families and “show up [at their homes] and slaughter them.”
On October 11th a leaked internal joint intelligence bulletin issued by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security warned that the “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) US-based sympathizers could potentially carry out attacks on law enforcement and government personnel”.
The warning also alerts U.S. law enforcement and government officials, including FBI Special Agents, to be aware of their surroundings and to monitor their families’ use of social media in order to “avoid revealing FBI or law enforcement affiliation”.
On Monday, 25 year old ISIS sympathizer Martin Couture-Rouleau, whom had converted to Islam a year ago in Quebec, perpetuated an act of jihad that resulted in the death of a Canadian soldier. Rouleau waited for over two hours in his car in a parking lot a few kilometers from the military academy until he had the opportunity to hit two members of the Canadian Armed Forces, fatally wounding one.
The reason Rouleau did this is made explicitly clear according to a friend of Rouleau’s who stated, “he was angry that Canada supported the American bombing of [ISIS] in Syria and Iraq, I think that was the main motive in killing that Canadian Soldier .”
In July, Rouleau was reportedly going to visit Turkey. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) arrested him at the airport and seized his passport. Why? They had suspicions that Rouleau was linked to international terrorism. He was immediately placed on a high-security list of roughly 93 individuals who had similar links to radical Islam.
On Wednesday, 34 year old Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, whom had converted to Islam over 3 years ago in British Columbia, carried out a terrorist attack in Ottawa as he fatally shot Corporal Nathan Cirillo standing guard at Ottawa’s War Memorial. He then opened fire in Parliament, which had recently opened for session, wounding another officer before he was shot dead by the House of Commons Sergeant-at-Arms. His actions effectively shut down the entire city of Ottawa as the city was under lockdown amidst conflicting reports of multiple gunmen.
When the identity of the terrorist was revealed to the public as that of a Muslim, Police departments throughout Canada immediately blasted a message to Imam’s and Mosque’s advising them to contact police if they “feared backlash“.
This type of apologetic response is astonishing given that the city was still locked down at the time and the Police felt the need to reassure the Muslim community rather than the Canadian public. This immediately whitewashed the narrative and took the spot light off of the Muslim community that was responsible for his “radicalization”.
So what drove Michael Zehaf-Bibeau to commit jihad? He had planned to travel back to Libya but was unable to obtain a passport due to measures taken by Canadian officials aimed at preventing “Canadians from joining extremists overseas”.
Initial reports that Bibeau was on the same list as Rouleau, signaling a possible terrorist connection, were rejected by the RCMP on Thursday. At the same time, the former was on the national security radar, had traveled to Syria (now home of the Islamic State), and reportedly had connections with ISIS terrorists.
On Thursday, 32 year old radical Muslim Zale Thompson attacked 4 NYPD Officers in the middle of the day on a street in Queens, New York. Thompson, armed with a hatchet, charged the officers from behind critically striking one over the head and another over the arm before being shot dead. Law enforcement sources say a look into Thompson’s chatter online revealed he had ties to a radical U.S.-based radical islamic leader who advocated aggression against the American government.
A quick look at Thompson’s facebook page reveals that he was indeed motivated by jihad as he stated “If you’re looking for ‘perfect’ Muslims who never make any mistakes in their Jihad, then you will be looking in vain! If the Zionists and the Crusaders had never invaded and colonized the Islamic lands after WW1, then there would be no need for Jihad!”.
Thompson went even further declaring that “Which is better, to sit around and do nothing, or to jihad!” He obviously choose the later.
Yet, even more revealing is the social media connections Thompson had with not only sympathizers to ISIS but as well as the New Black Panther Party.
The modus operandi of the Jihad, states Chuck Morse,”is to kill as many infidels as possible as a means of ushering in a world of Islam”, the Islamic caliphate. Their doctrines specifically call for the killing of infidels who refuse to submit. When this is understood, the mystery surrounding the motive for the attack on the Canadian Soldiers and the NYPD officers, dissipates. The nature of the enemy becomes crystal clear.
While the media continues to downplay this by insisting that these killers are mentally ill individuals committing senseless acts of violence with nothing to do with Islam, the repeated consistent pattern proves quiet the contrary. We can no longer ignore the threat as evidence has shown that our families, friends, co-workers and neighbors, are the targets.
