Canada: Muslim acquitted of terror charges after military center stabbing spree for Allah

And this is why the obfuscation and misunderstanding of motive is so very dangerous. Judge Ian MacDonnell said Ayanle Hassan Ali’s actions in May attack did not fit the intended scope of Canadian terrorism laws. “While it is common ground that the defendant had become radicalized, there is no evidence of any connection between him and any other person or group in relation to the attack.” The connection is to Islam. The group or organization is not the cause or the problem, it is the ideology. And whether in a group, in an army, or by individual act, the motive is the same, jihad — holy war.

According to Toronto police Chief Mark Saunders, Ali said, “Allah told me to do this, Allah told me to come here and kill people,” during the attack.

TORONTO — A man with schizophrenia who attacked soldiers at a military recruitment centre in Toronto was acquitted of terror charges and found not criminally responsible for lesser offences on Monday as a judge ruled his actions didn’t fit the intended scope of the country’s terrorism laws.

Ayanle Hassan Ali‘s radical religious and ideological beliefs were largely the result of his mental illness, Judge Ian MacDonnell found as he ordered the 30-year-old to remain at a forensic psychiatry unit while plans for his care could be determined.

“While it is common ground that the defendant had become radicalized, there is no evidence of any connection between him and any other person or group in relation to the attack,” MacDonnell said.

“The intention of Parliament in enacting (the relevant terror legislation) was not to capture the kind of lone-wolf criminal behaviour engaged in by the defendant,” he added.

Ali’s attack was nonetheless a “deeply disturbing assault on one of the pillars of Canadian peace and security,” MacDonnell said, as he found him not criminally responsible for attempted murder, assault and weapons offences.

At least two military personnel were left with minor injuries after Ali entered a recruitment centre in north Toronto in March 2016 and began slashing at people with a kitchen knife.

Ali had pleaded not guilty to three counts of attempted murder, three counts of assault with a weapon, two counts of assault causing bodily harm and one count of carrying a weapon for the purpose of committing an offence, all in association with, for the benefit, or at the direction of a terror organization.

His lawyers said their client should never have faced terror charges which, by definition, require that the accused commits an offence “for the benefit of, at the direction of or in association with” a terror group.

“This was a case where the Crown overreached,” defence attorney Nader Hasan said outside court.

“They had someone who they thought looked the part of the terrorist when, in reality, they had someone who committed a terrible, terrible act who is mentally ill and they should have proceeded in that fashion, rather than overreaching for terrorism.”

Ali became angry over Canadian military involvement in Muslim countries and came to feel that if he martyred himself all his sins would be forgiven in the afterlife, the doctors said.

  1. The Koran is by definition a book of demands by a Ideology not a religion, Islam is by definition a supremacist group unlike, Hitler uses deceit and lies to confuse the World. At least Hitler told the world what his intentions were. Muslims lie to Kiffur and want nothing but submission of every living thing in the world. Muslims don’t care about humanity as they kill for their Ideology, they burn tire to destroy the earth, they kill Jews to try to destroy Christianity, and Judaism, they kill animals for the sake of being filthy, like dogs in horrific ways, they torture anything they deem not in their interests, and they want to destroy Freedom for Islamic Socialism. What is not to understand about Islam? These bastards tell you to your face that they want all of us dead if we don’t submit and pay Jizya, they will rape every woman who is not a Muslim, and they are taking people into slavery to this very day, while the rest of us are the victims they are made into the poor victims of race and religion hate when Islam and Muslims are not a race or a religion. They are an Ideology that has its own laws that the rest of the world does not have but has to submit to. This has to stop before humanity is wiped out by these animals. There is no other religion in the world that demands submission, or kills another for not submitting, and there are no other religions that their creator or God demands of them to kill any other of his creation. Muslims may even be another race of animals that have come from underground from the pits of Hell to destroy God’s created people. These are the end times and everything that was foretold in the Bible is coming to pass, as the Koran has not foreseen anything but the submission of the world to Islam, Allah, and Muhammad, while there was never any evidence that any of them ever existed beyond the mind control of the Mullahs and Imams. Its easy to fool a whole civilization of idiots who can’t even read or write, and leave the interpretation to the Mullahs and Imams who are the real puppet masters.

  2. So he wasnt crazy since he had a specific purpose. When one is crazy, they go after anything, anybody with no plans. But here, he had planned it all and I CALL IT A PREMEDITATED TERRORIST ACT.

    I wonder who, or what, put that idea into his head?.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
