Jihadists. Why do they hate the west and why do they want to kill us? Public intellectuals like Noam Chomsky and Glenn Greenwald point to U.S. and NATO foreign intervention in the Muslim world as the inspiration behind modern Islamic terrorism, certainly since 9/11.
Canada has regressive leftists of our own as we saw last year when the Harper government sent our CF-18’s to join the coalition effort in bombing ISIS and Liberal MP Judy Sgro told the Hill Times in January that:
“You’ve got the Prime Minister of Canada standing in the House and saying ‘we want you to kill them.’ I think he’s dragging us more and more into fights that we don’t need to be in,” and “There’s only one reason, because he wants to instil fear in Canadians….It’s all about building up and getting people frightened and fearful. ISIL, ISIL, ISIL, ISIL is coming here. If they’re coming here it’s because he put us in that position,”
Judy Sgro believes the reason ISIS is coming to Canada is because of Stephen Harper’s decision to bomb them?
Watch as I explain why that logic doesn’t add up.
Islamic fundamentalism was not created by American democracy nor American foreign policy, it is not brought upon Canadians because Stephen Harper sent our fighter jets to join our allies in bombing ISIS, nor was it the creation of Israel or our support for the only democracy in the middle east.
No, to say so is a masochistic lie and it excuses the real criminals and it blames us for the attacks we receive.
