No Gaslighting for Ottawa

By: Brent Parrish

Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper minced no words in his response to the recent terror attacks in Ottawa. During his address to the Canadian people (see above), Harper stated the attacks were clearly “terrorist” acts.

Harper continued, “[Terrorists] will have no safe haven. Together we will remain vigilant against those at home or abroad who wish to harm us. We will never be intimidated. Canada is not immune to the types of terrorist attacks we have seen elsewhere around the world. But let there be no misunderstanding … Canada will never be intimidated.”

On Monday, two Canadian soldiers were ran down with a car driven by a young Muslim convert, Martin “Ahmad” Couture-Rouleau, 25, resulting in the death of one of the soldiers, Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent. The Toronto Sun reported Ahmad Rouleau “told a 911 operator he was acting in the name of Allah, a police source tells QMI Agency.” Rouleau was shot dead by Canadian Police following a car chase.

On Wednesday another recent convert to Islam, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau (a.k.a. Michael Joseph Hall), 32, shot and killed a Canadian soldier, Nathan Cirillo, 24, at the War Memorial in Ottawa.

Following the fatal shooting of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau then attempted to storm the nearby Canadian parliament building, but was fatally shot by the sergeant-at-arms, Kevin Vickers, whose quick actions likely saved countless lives.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Commissioner Bob Paulson released a statement claiming Bibeau was planning on traveling to Syria to fight for ISIS.

According to Military Studies, Bibeau and Rouleau followed the same Canadian-based pro-ISIS Twitter account

In late September, ISIS called for “lone wolf attacks” against Westerners, specifically in the United States and France.

On Thursday, another “self-radicalized” jihadi, Zale Thompson (a.k.a. Zaim Farouq Abdul-Malik), 32, brazenly attacked a group of four NYPD police officers with a hatchet. One of the officers, Kenneth Healy, 25, is listed in critical but stable condition as of Friday night. The hatchet-wielding jihadi was shot dead by police officers, wounding one civilian bystander in the process.

There have been numerous “lone wolf attacks” by so-called self-radicalized jihadis in the United States prior to ISIS’ recent call for Muslims to engage in terrorism against Western “infidels.”

Here are just a few examples of acts of terror committed by lone jihadis while Obama has been in office.

Recently, registered sex offender and lone wolf jihadi Ali Muhammad Brown was arrested in connection with the double-murder of two gay men in Seattle and the murder of 19-year-old college student, Brendan Tevlin.

Ninjapundit reported (emphasis mine):

Ali Muhammad Brown is wanted for the shooting of two gay men in Seattle on June 1, 2014 Ahmed Said and Dwone Anderson-Young. The murder is being investigated as a possible hate crime against gays possibly motivated by radicalized Islamic beliefs as there were no other apparent motives. Later Brown and two other suspects were charged in connection with killing college student Brendan Tevlin who was surrounded by thugs at a stoplight, then shot and driven to an apartment in West Orange, New Jersey where they took several personal items.  Brown, 30, is a registered sex offender from Seattle who was originally from East Orange New Jersey, charged with a number of offenses, including first-degree murder, felony murder, second-degree conspiracy to commit robbery and second-degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

Ahmed Said, 27, and Dwone Anderson-Young, 23, were found shot to death June 1 in Seattle’s Leschi neighborhood. Prosecutors accuse Brown of targeting the men on mobile dating apps for gay men before meeting them outside R Place, a gay club, that night. (Credit: BuzzFeed/KIRO 7)

The preceding list of murders committed “in the name of Allah” is in no way comprehensive. According to the thereligionofpeace.com website, there have been 75 separate terror attacks committed by Muslims in the United States that have resulted in the deaths of 3,107 Americans since 1972.

In contrast to the Canadian prime minister calling a spade a spade, Barack Obama and his votaries urge Americans to not “rush to judgement” regarding the motives behind such senseless, brutal, vicious and deadly attacks, despite compelling and overwhelming evidence that these acts of terror were primarily motivated by radical Islamic beliefs.

But it appears perfectly clear to me why Barack Obama and his supporters do not want to acknowledge such horrendous violent crimes for what they are—Islamic terrorism. It would mean admitting terror attacks have occurred within the U.S. on Obama’s watch. No, the Obama Administration instead prefers to call de facto terrorist attacks on American soil “workplace violence,” “bad actors,” “a disgruntled employee” … or something. Perhaps the administration could call Islamic terrorism within the United States “domestic contingency operations.” But I digress.

To ignore the obvious common thread—meaning, Islam—in all of the barbarous crimes listed here, is not just misguided or incompetent, it is criminal behavior, in my opinion. If one does not know their enemy, then one cannot defeat the enemy. The administration has gone overboard in an effort to not offend Muslims, going so far as to order government agencies in charge of protecting Americans to ignore the influence of Islam altogether, lest one be called “intolerant” or “racist”—an utterly ridiculous charge, considering Islam encompasses many races and ethnic groups. And what about the stifling intolerance of those waging jihad in the name of Allah? Wasn’t it Aristotle who said apathy and tolerance are the last virtues of a dying society? But, once again, I digress.

Ignoring the role Islamic texts like the Quran, Hadith, Siri and Sunna (Islamic Law) have in shaping the strategy and tactics of Islamic terrorists worldwide is to ignore the primary impetus and doctrinal basis that drives global terrorism. An understanding of the traditions and doctrines that underpin Islam is crucial in being able to predict what Islamic terrorists will and will not do. It’s like coming into possession of the enemy’s playbook, then tossing it in the trash without so much as giving it a gander; it’s suicidal.

The administration and its ilk keep telling us that what we are seeing is not what we are seeing. There’s a name for this phenomenon; it’s called gaslightinga favored tactic regularly employed by the ruling elites. That’s why, at least for me, it was more than refreshing to see the Canadian prime minister face the threat head on, and call it what it isIslamic terror. Unfortunately, Stephen Harper is not our leader. Our president is too busy lighting the gas.
