MONTREAL—The suspect in a hit-and-run that injured two Canadian soldiers in Quebec — an incident identified as a possible terror attack — has died in hospital after being shot several times by police.

Lt. Michel Brunet of the Sûreté du Québec says the 25-year-old man died a few hours after being shot in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, southeast of Montreal.

Police sources identified the suspect as Martin Rouleau, according to La Presse.

The shocking incident, which occurred at about noon Monday, also sent the two Canadian Armed Forces personnel to hospital with one fighting for his life and the other having suffered minor injuries, according to the Quebec provincial police.

The two soldiers were reportedly walking through the parking lot of a shopping centre located less than three kilometres from the Collège militaire royal de Saint-Jean, the French-language university run by the Department of National Defence, when they were run down by a driver.

A police chase ensued and the car drove into a ditch after the driver lost control of the vehicle, police said.

Witnesses who spoke with the TVA network Monday afternoon said they saw a man emerge from the flipped vehicle that was lying in a ditch on the side of the road. The man had his hands in the air and was walking toward police when at least one officer opened fire on the suspect. The witnesses said they heard up to seven gunshots.

TVA also showed images of a knife with an elaborate handle lodged into the ground near where the incident occurred.

A source told the Star that the incident happened near the Integrated Personnel Support Centre on Blvd. du Séminaire Nord. This centre, one of several across the country, is operated jointly by Veterans Affairs and National Defence to assist veterans as well as reservists and regular force troops on issues such as return to work.

In a statement Monday evening, the RCMP said the suspect was known to federal officials.

This individual was known to federal authorities including our Integrated National Security Investigations team in Montreal who along with other authorities were concerned that he had become radicalized,” RCMP Cpl. David Falls said in a statement.

The Toronto Star can’t bare to put the words to paper: Islam, Muslim, jihad.

“Out of respect and deference to the ongoing criminal investigation arising from today’s terrible events the RCMP will not comment further except to say that we are working with our law enforcement partners to ensure all avenues of investigation are pursued,” Falls said.

 

 

Islamic Burial Rituals Spread Ebola in Africa

via Islamic Burial Rituals Blamed For Spread Of Ebola Virus In Africa – Investors.com.

Islam isn’t just at the heart of the terror threat posed by the Islamic State. The religion is also contributing to the other major crisis plaguing the globe: the spread of Ebola.

Washington and its media stenographers won’t tell you this, lest they look intolerant, but Islamic burial rituals are a key reason why health officials can’t contain the spread of the deadly disease in West Africa.

Many of the victims of Ebola in the three hot-spot nations there — Sierra Leone and Guinea, as well as neighboring Liberia — are Muslim. Roughly 73% of Sierra Leone’s and about 85% of Guinea’s people are Muslim. Islam, moreover, is practiced by more than 13% of Liberians.

When Muslims die, family members don’t turn to a funeral home or crematorium to take care of the body. In Islam, death is handled much differently.

Relatives personally wash the corpses of loved ones from head to toe. Often, several family members participate in this posthumous bathing ritual, known as Ghusl.

Before scrubbing the skin with soap and water, family members press down on the abdomen to excrete fluids still in the body. A mixture of camphor and water is used for a final washing. Then, family members dry off the body and shroud it in white linens.

Again, washing the bodies of the dead in this way is considered a collective duty for Muslims, especially in Muslim nations. Failure to do so is believed to leave the deceased “impure” and jeopardizes the faithful’s ascension into Paradise (unless he died in jihad; then no Ghusl is required).

Before the body is buried, Muslims attending the funeral typically pass a common bowl for use in ablution or washing of the face, feet and hands, compounding the risk of infection.

Though these customs are prescribed by Shariah law, they’re extremely dangerous and should be suspended. Mosque leaders must step in to educate village Muslims about the dangers of interacting with corpses.

Ebola victims can be more contagious dead than alive. Their bodies are covered in rashes, blood and other fluids containing the virus.

“Funerals and washing dead bodies in West African countries have led, to a great extent, to spread the disease,” a World Health Organization spokeswoman recently warned.

WHO has issued an advisory to Red Cross and other relief workers in African Muslim nations to “be aware of the family’s cultural practices and religious beliefs. Help the family understand why some practices cannot be done because they place the family or others at risk for exposure.”

The document added: “Identify a family member who has influence with the rest of the family and who can make sure family members avoid dangerous practices such as washing or touching the body.”

The warning appears to be falling on deaf ears, however.

Last month, Red Cross workers in Guinea were attacked by family members while trying to bury Ebola dead safely. In Sierra Leone, moreover, a family took Ebola-ridden bodies secured in body bags from the Red Cross, opened them up and exposed all members of the family to Ebola. They all contracted the disease.

The UN warns that if the spread of Ebola can’t be contained within 60 days, it could turn into a global plague. The West African infection rate is expected to jump from 1,000 a week to 10,000 a week.

President Obama argues that suspending travel with these West African nations would do more harm than good.

But the practice of these religious customs is even more reason to do so.

Even Saudi Arabia, the center of Islam, is now barring pilgrims from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea from traveling to Mecca for fear of them bringing the virus into the kingdom.

So what’s stopping us from barring travelers from those countries?

 

Muslim from U.S. killed fighting for ISIS

In a sea of bad news…American ISIS fighter Abu Muhammad al-Amriki ‘killed in Kobani’ | Daily Mail Online. h/t Atlas

Abu Muhammad al-Amriki, who reportedly lived in the U.S. before joining the terror group, has been ‘martyred’ in the border town of Kobani, according to internet posts by militants.

In a video posted on YouTube in February, a bearded man believed by officials to be the same individual was seen speaking in English with a heavy foreign accent.

Dressed in uniform and clutching a rifle, he said he had lived in America for around 10 years before travelling to Syria to join ISIS. It is unclear whether he was a U.S. citizen.

 

North Carolina Muslim Pleads Guilty, Wanted to Join Islamic Terror Groups

Akba Jihad Jordan. With a name like that, who would ever suspect him of being a Muslim terrorist? via NC Man Pleads Guilty In Terrorism Case.

RALEIGH, N.C. — A North Carolina man faces up to 15 years in federal prison over plans to travel to either Syria or Yemen to join a jihadist group.

Not an extra from FAME, but a jihadist wannabe from North Carolina

Akba Jihad Jordan of Raleigh pleaded guilty Thursday in U.S. District Court to one count of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists.

Federal prosecutors allege the 22-year-old Jordan and his 21-year-old co-defendant Avin Marsalis Brown spoke repeatedly with an FBI informant about their desire to travel overseas to fight with extremist groups that included al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the Islamic State group and jabhat al-Nusrah.

The pair is also alleged to have discussed using weapons to fight non-Muslims in the United States. Investigators later recovered an AK-47 assault rifle and ammunition from Jordan’s apartment.

Brown pleaded guilty in August and awaits sentencing.

 


If all this guy did to get arrested was talk to an FBI informant about his desire to join the jihad, then why won’t the FBI arrest the hundred or so Muslims they are tracking that actually did go wage jihad in Syria and elsewhere and have since returned? Why isn’t Congress asking this question?

Pakistan court upholds death sentence for Christian woman who supposedly blasphemed Islam

A Pakistani court has upheld the death sentence of a Christian woman whose 2010 conviction for blasphemy led to the assassination of two politicians who supported her, a defense lawyer said Friday.

Asia Bibi, a 50-year-old mother of five, had appealed before the Lahore High Court against the ruling, in which she was found guilty of insulting Islam’s Prophet Muhammad, but the court rejected her appeal Thursday, her lawyer said.

“We have the right to appeal in 30 days, and we will continue this legal battle by approaching the Supreme Court of Pakistan,” Sardar Mushtaq said.

Bhati was killed months later by the Pakistani Taliban, who called him an “infidel Christian.”

Mushtaq said Bibi was arrested after Muslim women told a cleric in a village in the eastern Punjab province that she had made “derogatory remarks” about the prophet. He said the trouble began when the women objected to Bibi using their drinking glass because she was not a Muslim, setting off a heated verbal exchange.

“We have a strong case, and we will try our best to save her life,” he told The Associated Press.

International and local human rights groups have called for amending blasphemy laws introduced by the military dictator Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq in 1980s.

In a statement Thursday, Amnesty International called for Bibi’s release.

“This is a grave injustice,” said David Griffiths, Amnesty’s Deputy Asia Pacific Director. He said there were serious concerns about the fairness of the trial. “Her mental and physical health has reportedly deteriorated badly during the years she has spent in almost total isolation on death row. She should be released immediately and the conviction should be quashed,” he said.

Under Pakistani blasphemy laws, insulting the Quran or the Prophet Muhammad can be punished with life imprisonment or death. Experts say the laws often are exploited for personal gain.

Pakistan imposed a moratorium on executions in 2008 and has never executed anyone convicted of blasphemy. Instead, such cases usually linger on appeal.


As Robert Spencer points out:

His guests, David Miliband and some other clown, rush to absolve Islam from any responsibility for this, going on to argue with him that this is a Pakistani problem. They do not, however, address Maher’s point, that this blasphemy death sentence was just affirmed by a high court in Pakistan.

The same type of persecution is ramping up in the U.S., from the government jailing makers of a video, to government investigation into church sermons and coordinating with social media sites like Facebook and Twitter (Twitter Blocks Faith-Based Campaign for Houston Pastors) while mosques preach jihad and recruit jihadists.

Not to mention media coverups of Muslims beheading Christians right here in the U.S.

 

TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé follows single American mom who marries Tunisian Mohamed

Stupidity v. immigration fraud. via 90 Day Fiancé follows Americans as they prepare to marry stranger foreign spouses | Daily Mail Online.

oddcpl

Season two of TLC’s hit show 90 Day Fiancé will debut Sunday October 19, charting the risky romances of six Americans who move their foreign spouses to the U.S. in order to get married.

Under the terms of the K-1 visa, these foreigners are permitted to live and work in the U.S. for just 90 days before they either have to tie the knot, or return to their home countries.

Of the four couples featured in the season premiere, only one of the Americans has spent more than two weeks with their partner abroad before proposing and flying them over.

Perhaps the most ominous situation is for Ohio-based Danielle, 46, a single mother to three teenage daughters, who met her Tunisian fiancé Mohamed, 26, in an international online chat room.

Enamored by the strapping young foreigner, Danielle saves up to fly to Tunisia and meet him in person. The couple spend two weeks together, after which she returns home and Mohamed promptly proposes to Danielle via instant messenger.

‘I like that he’s from Tunisia because he’s different from American guys,’ Danielle explains. 

‘Most men his age are out partying and wouldn’t even think twice about being with a woman who has three teenage girls.’

Although Danielle, who works with the mentally handicapped, says she was initially ‘resistant’ to the idea of such a fast engagement, she knew she ‘loved and cared for him’ and claims she will ‘never leave him.’

Most men his age are out partying and wouldn’t even think twice about being with a woman who has three teenage girls

Danielle stumps up the money for Mohamed’s flights to Ohio, and from day one, trouble looms. Mohamed neglects to call Danielle when he lands in the U.S., whipping her into a frenzy of worry over the notion that he has taken the plane ticket and disappeared. 

Comforted by her understandably wary daughters, Danielle sobs through the entire episode, before heading to the airport in frantic hopes he will actually be there.

‘I’ve only spent a few days with Mohamed,’ she whimpers. ‘I hope I haven’t misjudged him.’

Mohamed does show up, but he stands stiff as post when Danielle launches herself into his arms and sobs into his armpit as her daughters, bearing a handmade welcome sign, watch on awkwardly.

‘Stop crying, stop crying,’ Mohamed implores her through forced smiles.


Danielle should read these previous Creeping Sharia posts and not leave her daughters alone with Mohamed for one second nor allow them to Tunisia or any other Muslim country.

Architect Redesigns Church Destroyed on 9/11 to Resemble Churches that Became Mosques

church-2-popupSt. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church (above), destroyed on 9/11, will overlook the 9/11 Memorial when rebuilt.

via A Church Near Ground Zero Reimagined – WSJ

Mr. Calatrava designed the church and will attend its groundbreaking on Saturday. If everything goes according to schedule, the building should be finished in 2016 or early 2017.

While the 9/11 Memorial, with its twin reflecting pools and alleys of trees, masterfully creates an opportunity for quiet reflection, there’s also something to be said for a sanctuary with four walls—and perhaps for lighting a memorial candle, no matter what religion you practice, or even if you practice no religion at all.

“All the circumstances around 9/11, the memorial embodies that very well,” Mr. Calatrava said as he sat in the stately Park Avenue townhouse that does double duty as his home and his office.

“This is what I want; this is what the church wants: a very ecumenical place; they would like to have 24 hours the church open.”

But Mr. Calatrava conceded the public has the last word.

Hopefully the public reject it. But the archdiocese seems on board with the ecumenical, non-church church idea: St. Nicholas Church, Destroyed on 9/11, to Rebuild With Byzantine Design

church-1-articleLarge-v3

the reflection looks more mosque-like in this rendering

That a Spanish architect should design a modern Byzantine church in Lower Manhattan for the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, based on buildings in Turkey that were used for Islamic worship, goes to the heart of the message the archdiocese says it hopes to send with the $20 million project. The new St. Nicholas is to open by early 2016.

“If I may quote Jesus, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all people,’ ” said the Rev. Mark Arey, a spokesman for the archdiocese. “It will be open to everyone: the believer, the unbeliever, the Orthodox Christian, the atheist. Whoever you are, this is a space that you can come into and find some meditative solace.”

The architect claims it’s inspiration is two Byzantine churches…later conquered and converted into mosques.

Other than the barely discernible cross on top of the dome there is nothing on the exterior or interior for that matter that even suggests it is a church, never mind a rebuilt St. Nicholas.

At one point the city refused to allow St. Nicholas to rebuild. Was making it a mosque-like structure that would not offend Muslims a requirement for allowing them to rebuild?

This is the Flight 93 Memorial to Islamic Terrorists and Ground Zero Mosque redux.
