Muslims radicalizing Canadians at ‘a large number of venues,’ homes, prisons

Islamist extremists are now radicalizing Canadians at “a large number of venues,” according to a secret intelligence report released to the National Post under the Access to Information Act.

While mosques with hardline imams are often singled out for spreading violent Islamist ideology, the study found that radicalization has been taking place at a much longer list of locales.

“Radicalization is not limited to religious centres,” says the Canadian Security Intelligence Service report, titled Venues of Sunni Islamist Radicalization in Canada.

The heavily censored report identifies the role of prisons, the Internet and foreign travel in turning some Canadians into extremists who wage or support violence. But it also points a finger at the family home.

“Parents have radicalized children,” reads the Intelligence Assessment, “husbands have radicalized wives (and some wives have radicalized or supported their husbands) … and siblings have radicalized each other,” it says.

“As this assessment has demonstrated, a large number of venues have been, and continue to be used to further Islamist extremist ideology. … As radicalization is usually a social process, it can occur wherever humans interact, in the real world or virtual ones,” it says.

Since al-Qaeda’s attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, an increasing number of Canadians have become lured into Islamist extremism, an intolerant, anti-democratic and virulently anti-Western worldview that preaches that violence against non-Muslims is a religious duty and a path to paradise.

Several Canadian extremists have travelled abroad to countries such as Pakistan and Somalia with the intention of engaging in what they call jihad, while others have plotted mass casualty attacks in Canada, although none has succeeded.

via Sun News : Terrorism expert warns against radical Islam spreading in Canadian jails.

OTTAWA — Canada has relatively few terrorists behind bars, but an expert on prison radicalization says the problem of Islamist ideology spreading among inmates is a real one.

“This isn’t to say that all inmates will become radicals, or even that many will,” said Dr. Alexandre Wilner, a Research Fellow with the Mandonald-Laurier Institute and a terrorism expert. “But it is to suggest that prison represents a potentially good window of opportunity for spreading radical views and recruiting others to a violent cause.”

Wilner’s comments follow the release of a highly censored CSIS threat assessment that confirmed that Sunni Islamist radicalization is taking place in Canadian prisons, within families and through jihadi websites.

The parts of the assessment that the public has been allowed to see don’t indicate how large a problem Islamist radicalization is within Canada or offer specific examples of cases.

Wilner says Canada is fortunate not to have as many terrorists or other Islamist inmates as the U.S., Britain, France and Spain because it allows authorities here to intervene early in preventing radicalization.

“By gauging other countries’ policies for minimizing the risk of prison radicalization, we might be able to construct the sorts of things we need now in Canada to limit our susceptibility to the threat,” he said.

Among recommendations Wilner made to a special Senate anti-terror committee is a call for the RCMP, CSIS, and the Correctional Service of Canada to take a more coordinated approach to understanding Islamist radicalization since the problem is still in its early stages.

Unfortunately for Canadians, dhimmi politicians continue to legitimize Muslims who associate with terrorists, advocate for sharia and support jihad.

  1. Oh joy! The Powers That Be in Canada are just as clueless as other Powers That Be in Europe and the US. It is just a matter of time when Canadian “youths” will be burning down cars by the score on New Year’s Eve.

  2. They are talking more about muslims in Canada than any other group in Canada. Yes…we have the PolCorr crowd who will defend Islam as a Religion and call anyone racist for saying otherwise…but this is not what CSIS what referring to in the report. They are talking about muslims.

    Steve….

    The Canadian Gov’t. knows full well what Islam is all about! They are not “clueless” as you suggest.
    PM Harper has had/has a Fatwa on his head for a few years now. He knows what this means. He and his Gov’t. have been cracking down on muslims coming into the country. Even the pamphlet given to each immigrant coming into Canada has that Canada is intolerant of stoning, honor killing, clitorectomies, or any other form of Barbarism. There was a big bruhaha with Justin Trudeau and the Liberals about it….the Liberals wanted it removed…..they didn’t get their way! It is still on the pamphlet.
    Canadian Gov’t. does not see Islam as a Religion. Mosques will be having to open their books to be audited. If they refuse…they lose their tax free status. Many muslim Charities have lost their status as they were found to be funneling monies to terrorist organizations.
    Even the Unions in Canada are now fighting to keep their books private as they have been giving monies to folks doing the Intafadas to Israel for Palestinian aide…which Which the IDF invited CSIS to accompany them to the last one to board the ships to check out the cargo. What they found was not blankets or food stuff…no…it was supplies for making bombs and weapons.
    So……Harper Gov’t. is well aware of what is going on and they won’t be allowing a full take over here in Canada!
    When CSIS says that Islamists are Canada’s number 1 threat…..then you can be reassured that Harper knows all about it!

  3. islam is also the number one threat to America but obamahole doesn’t give a damn since islam is in his dna, period

  4. [...] it be better to have some news from a little closer to home? Sun News perhaps? There’s a growing jihadist and sharia threat north of the border.  Help Sun News get carried on basic [...]
