MONTREAL—For more than a year they tried. For more than a year they failed to help their friend, Martin Rouleau, see the light of day. —

Whether it was psychological troubles or honest zeal, the young entrepreneur from St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, the friend to all and father to one young boy was lost to a world of conspiracy theories, hatred and religion-fuelled anger that led to what intelligence and security experts have been fretting about for years: a homegrown, radicalized terrorist acting out on Canadian soil.

“It was a terrorist attack and Martin died like he wanted to. That’s what happened,” one close friend, who asked not to be named, told the Star.

Martin Rouleau adopted the Facebook handle “Ahmad Rouleau,” or the Twitter name “Abu Ibrahim AlCanadi,” or created his account on Ummaland, the Muslim social media site, wearing the face covering of a jihadi bearing his copy of the Qur’an like a trophy.

He became obsessed with practicing his new religion. He prayed constantly. He sprouted a heavy beard, but Rouleau’s friends never considered him to be a threat to himself or to others.

Instead, he spent all his energies during visits with friends trying to convince them about his newfound faith, trying to convert them.

“He thought it was true. He believed it all,” Prince said. “He thought that of all the religions it was Islam that was the truest.”

His Facebook posts stretching back to May 2013 touch on the cause of Palestinians, the righteousness of Islam over Christianity and post several photos of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and other world leaders with orthodox Jews. His Twitter account, in which he takes the AlCanadi moniker commonly used by foreigners that have gone to fight with Islamic terror groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS, has no posts but follows a number of ISIS-related users whose focus is the attempt to establish an Islamic caliphate in Syria and Iraq.

Earlier this summer, the two friends said, Rouleau was stopped by authorities while trying to leave the country.

“He did this because he wanted to reach paradise and assure paradise for his family. He wanted to be a martyr,” said the friend who asked not to be named.

But he also defended some of the most despicable acts for which ISIS has been roundly condemned. When ISIS started decapitating hostages, he defended his faith.

“He became an extremist. He wanted to go fight jihad but they wouldn’t let him do it. The caliphate called all the Muslims on earth to fight. He listened to what they had to say and he did his part here.”

Canadian soldiers run down in possible Quebec terror attack

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?

 

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.

Wash. State mayor sides with Islamic terror-front group CAIR, boycotts U.S. General

via Dhimmi Mayor Tim Leavitt @leavitt4mayor Caves to Terror Tied Hamas-CAIR, Smears War Hero General Boykin | Atlas Shrugs

The terrorist-tied Hamas group CAIR has been intimidating and bullying the Clark County 13th annual Mayor and Civic Leaders Prayer Breakfast to cancel their keynote speaker, war hero Lieutenant General William G. Boykin.

Kudos to the Clark County organizers for standing for what’s good and right, and refusing to submit to the sharia and rebuffing the thugs and goons over at the foreign agents at Hamas-CAIR.

But quisling Mayor Tim Leavitt has decided to “boycott” the Clark County 13th annual Mayors’ & Civic Leaders’ Prayer Breakfast to be held October 17, in submission to Islamic supremacist demands. Leavitt defines the term useful idiot.

But General Boykin deserves our gratitude and respect. Does Mayor Leavitt mean to aid and abet Hamas and the jihad against the free world?

Politely email Tim at tim.leavitt@cityofvancouver.us

He is either clueless or complicit, but neither is an excuse for this outrage.

Whitewashing CAIR is whitewashing the Muslim Brotherhood. The evidence against the group is overwhelming.

I have spent years studying the evidence demonstrating that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (“CAIR”) is a terrorist organization operating as a front group for Hamas and its affiliated organizations. I have consulted with FBI agents, CIA agents, local law enforcement officers, and attorneys who specialize in national security law. All of these consultations confirm that CAIR was begun as a Hamas front group to carry out the Muslim Brotherhood’s anti-American agenda.

Much, but not all of this evidence, was documented in United States v. Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development  et al., 3:04-cr-00240-P (N.D. Texas) (“HLF”).  I have personally invested hundreds of hours reading written documented evidence and listening to audio-taped evidence that had been introduced at the trial.

The evidence shows that CAIR is a criminal terrorist organization. This conclusion is shared by the United States government. The Department of Justice named CAIR in the federal criminal trial of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development,[1] which concluded with multiple guilty verdicts, as an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive conspiracy to fundraise for, and otherwise pursue, the terrorist agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Palestine Committee, a public relations and fund raising arm of Hamas in the United States.[2]See generally HLF.[3]  Specifically, CAIR was named as one of the organizations formed by the defendants and co-conspirators to create the appearance of legality in the effort to raise funds and public support for Hamas and its jihad abroad.  As the evidence in the HLF trial demonstrated, these plans were part of the 1993 Philadelphia planning meeting carried out by Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas operatives, a meeting which the FBI secretly recorded pursuant to a lawful court order, the entire transcript of which was introduced into the record at the HLF trial.[4]

Maryland: Indonesia funds $3M purchase of church, conversion to mosque

State Department Muslim rep attends opening and praises allah on U.S. taxpayer’s dime.

via the Muslim Brotherhood’s U.S. newspaper – IMAAM Center Realizes 20 Year Old Dream.

For hundreds of Indonesian-American families and Maryland Muslims, “grand opening” couldn’t have more meaning than it did on Friday, September 26, 2014.

After two decades, the dream of establishing a masjid and community center in Maryland finally became a reality, and the presidential benefactor who facilitated a three million dollar donation to purchase a church and convert it to a masjid came with a delegation to witness the opening of the Indonesian Muslim Association in America (IMAAM) in Silver Spring, Maryland.

The remodeled church includes a large prayer area and smaller assembly rooms. The grand opening ceremony included juma’ prayer led by founding IMAAM member Firdaus Kadir. President Yudhoyono led his delegation in ‘Asr prayer immediately afterward; the group traveled overnight from New York where President Yudhoyono was attending the United Nations gathering of world leaders.

IMAAM invited representatives from area Muslim organizations. Some area leaders and activists in attendance included All Dulles Area Muslims Association (ADAMS) President Syed Moktadir, ADAMS Board of Trustees Chairman Rizwan Jaka, Dr. Iqbal Yunus from the Fairfax Institute, Imam of the Islamic Society of the Washington Area (ISWA) Faizul Khan, and Sister Asma Hanif, director of the Muslimat An-Nisaa women’s shelter. Numerous diplomats from Muslim countries as well as local interfaith leaders also attended.

As is typical with a visit from a head of state, the invitation only event had tight security which included a large presence from the Montgomery County Police Department as well as federal agents. The ceremony began about an hour before juma’ prayer with lunch served to all guests. A live translation was available to guests via wireless headsets.

After a recitation from the Qur’an, IMAAM President Arif Mustofa thanked Allah and President Yudhoyono for allowing the organization to reach this day. He said the strategic location of the new center – close to Washington DC and Northern Virginia and to the metro system – would allow Muslims and guests from around the region to participate in the activities at IMAAM. “The doors of goodness will be wide open to those who want peace,” said Mustofa.

US Department of State’s Special Representative to Muslim Communities Shaarik Zafar spoke next, congratulating the IMAAM community on the realization of their dream. “The Muslim community is an integral part of America. What can we do to make an impact? Engagement,” said Zafar. He also took the opportunity to comment on the Indonesian President’s recent speech regarding how to deal with the threat of terrorism and extremism. “We fully agree with your speech about using soft power to confront extremist groups like ISIL,” said Zafar, adding that stopping the flow of foreign fighters to Syria and Iraq was critical.

President Yudhoyono’s address began with praising and thanking Allah for this day, and sending salutations on the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), his companions, and the Muslim ummah.

The same ummah ISIS preaches too.

Lessons from the U.S. Airstrikes on Aleppo

…they ain’t working. Or read Stratfor’s take.

When the United States began its campaign of airstrikes against Islamic State targets in Syria on Sept. 22, it also used Tomahawk cruise missiles to attack a series of al Qaeda-related facilities in the Aleppo area. The strikes targeted al Qaeda’s regional franchise in Syria, Jabhat al-Nusra, as well as personnel belonging to the al Qaeda core who were in Syria working with Jabhat al-Nusra and other jihadists. The U.S. government has referred to the al Qaeda personnel it attacked in Syria as the “Khorasan Group,” but they are clearly personnel from the al Qaeda core who have been dispatched to Syria and not from some other organization.

 It appears the strikes caught the al Qaeda militants by surprise, and there are reports that al Qaeda operative Muhsin al-Fadhli, reported to be Ayman al-Zawahiri’s senior operative in Syria, was killed in the strikes. The United States also claimed that al-Fadhli and his fellow al Qaeda members were working on plots to strike the United States and Europe from their base in Syria. The group reportedly was the reason for an alert issued on July 2 warning that al Qaeda elements in Syria were working with bombmakers from al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula in a new plot to smuggle concealed explosive devices onto U.S.-bound aircraft.

 The fact that al-Fadhli and his companions were dispatched to Syria to plot attacks against the United States should not be surprising. The group and other jihadist militants have long operated in lawless areas in countries such as Yemen, Algeria, Somalia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Pakistan, Nigeria, Mali, Libya, Iraq and Syria. The al Qaeda core also has a long history of seeking to attack the United States. We have seen the al Qaeda core dispatch operatives to work with groups of local jihadists to conduct attacks in New York (1993 World Trade Center bombing) and Africa (1998 East Africa embassy bombings.)

 The U.S. strikes against al Qaeda targets in Aleppo are noteworthy because they highlight the need of al Qaeda groups to seek sanctuary in places such as Syria. The strikes also serve as a reminder that while the campaign against al Qaeda has weakened the group since 9/11, the group can revive if it has time and space within which to operate.

  It is important to understand that sanctuary alone is not enough to produce sophisticated transnational terrorist attacks. Indeed, there are many jihadist groups that are operating in lawless areas across a wide arc of the world stretching from West Africa to the Sulu Archipelago. However, only a small number of these groups possess the requisite combination of intent and capability needed to conduct transnational attacks. Many of these groups are nationally or regionally focused and therefore have no aspiration of striking targets beyond their areas of operation. Friction between nationally focused and transnationally focused jihadists has resulted in rifts and infighting among the members of groups such as al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and al Shabaab. But even those jihadist groups that aspire and threaten to commit transnational attacks have been constrained by their limited capabilities. Projecting terrorist power across continents is not as easy as it appears in the movies.

As we have previously discussed, fighting an insurgency and conducting transnational terrorist attacks are two distinct things, and possessing the ability to conduct insurgent warfare does not mean that a militant group can automatically use its insurgent capabilities to carry out terrorist strikes. To project terrorist power transnationally, a militant group needs to develop the capability to employ advanced terrorist tradecraft.

Terrorist groups like al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula have also sought other ways to extend their reach from places of sanctuary to attack the United States and Europe. One way they have sought to do this is by using concealed bombs to attack aircraft. For example, in the 2009 underwear bomb plot and the 2010 computer printer bomb attempt, the perpetrating group sought to use innovative and imaginative explosive devices created in its Yemeni bases to attack international aviation targets. This is because making explosive devices in areas where there is access to military-grade explosives and bomb components is easier than sending an operative to create a device from improvised components in a hostile environment.

 In response to the group’s failed attacks, security agencies have dramatically increased the scrutiny of people and cargo originating from Yemen. The country was already a fairly isolated place due to its geography, making it difficult to dispatch people and bombs without detection. The area along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, where the al Qaeda core is believed to be hiding, is also quite isolated and under heavy scrutiny by intelligence agencies. Because of this, relocating cells to Syria to plan and execute plots against the West makes sense. There is also an immense amount of traffic going both ways across the Syria-Turkey border, facilitating travel to Turkey as the far more convenient location to get to the United States and Europe than Yemen or Pakistan.
