Canada’s history with Islamic terror is one of foiled plots, but for how long?

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

In the wake of yet another Islamic terror attack in London and the revelation that one of the victims was from BC, the question that comes to my mind and the minds of millions of Canadians is, can this happen here? 

The short answer is, yes.

We need only look back to the murder of Nathan Cirillo by an Islamic terrorist and the shoot-out inside parliament, and also to numerous terror plots that have been foiled by the great men and women serving this country in law enforcement and intelligence services.

I thought it was worth reminding Canadians just how lucky we’ve been to avoid a major catastrophe as so many of our close Western allies are currently facing, and discuss some of the major Islamic terror plots that have been foiled in Canada.

Watch as I break down everything from Aaron Driver's homemade bomb, to the VIA rail bomb plot and one of the most sophisticated Islamic terror plots the world has ever seen, the Toronto 18.

The regressive left likes to claim that Canada has only been targeted due to our role in the Afghanistan war, but our very first homegrown Islamic terror plot in 1991 was well before a single Canadian soldier set foot in a Muslim country.

Reminding ourselves about these foiled plots forces Canadians to realize we’re not an exception due to Canadian multiculturalism integrating Islamic immigrants better than other countries. This doesn’t help us avoid the issues of radicalism that Europe, the US and the whole world is seeing right now.

At Rebel, we’ve reported recently on extremist preaching at Mosques in Toronto and Montreal. In 2014, Calgary saw an anti-Israel protest by the Hamas supporting Palestinian community that devolved into a fight where supporters of Israel were attacked.

With all this in mind, we need to stay vigilant and aware.

I’m hopeful we can avoid major incidents, and I believe in our law enforcement and intelligence officials, but if we’ve learned anything from recent attacks, sometimes law enforcement awareness of radicalized individuals isn’t enough.

We’re not safe. Canada is being had as we speak.

Rebelation Rebelation: You are correct. It doesn’t matter how accepting the population is if your intent is to set up enclaves where you don’t have to associate with the Kafir any more than necessary.

We are safe to a degree until like Europe the amount of people being watched by security forces exceeds the security forces capabilities.

@Bill Elder…I am respectfully going to differ on that one Bill. Marc Lepine’s mom was a vanguard feminist. He was not brought up in any sort of traditional moslem way. He was not a member of a mosque.

In fact, today on CBC The National, they did imply we’re safer than our European counterparts due to our inclusiveness, and went on to assert that terrorists are disenfranchised.

Really, just how hard are they trying to integrate while wearing a niqab, rather than adopting western ways? Integration is a dirty word amongst many Muslims!

Glen Craig – Lepine/Gharbi’s rampage was a culture cash melt down. Here was a kid raised by Muslim father in a traditional Islamic patriarchy environment where women are subservient, he beat both the women regularly, – this is why she divorced the father . then he is out as a young man looking to educate for a carreer and he is hit in the face with gender quotas and snarling obnoxious women in the fembo cult – he reacted as an Islamist seeking to retrieve his honor in a jihadist manner.

BTW – The Montreal police screened him for his gun licence and that remains the same today, so a modern Gharbi/Lepine could do the same thing this time with infidels of both sexes

Most Canadians are sitting ducks because they refuse to consider this evil exists. They refuse to believe these things will happen here. How can they trust what justin is telling them. They don’t realize how much Justin is NOT telling them. Trusting,. stupid sheep. That is what the bulk of this population consists of. I am becoming very short tempered with the bleeding hearts. They are going to get us all killed.

I have no faith whatsoever that we will avoid a major incident. That is wishful thinking Christopher.

It’s not a matter of IF but when it will happen (again) I would have thought that an Islamic attack on our seat of national government that almost got to where MPs were hiding – and the fact our PM was present for this may have driven home to him that this is REAL, Islamic radicalization (which he allows) is deadly and it is producing home grown Jihadi terrorists – then again this PM is so culturally autistic he can’t connect cultural incompatibility to these attacks.

I get sick of hearing again and again after they scrape each victims remains off the pavement that the nutter and their activities was “known to police”

JUSTIN CLOSE THESE KNOWN RADICALIZATION CENTERS!!! Or accept the blood on your hands alone.

@Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt…Thank you for that Tammie ….but nobody really knows what set him off though there is much speculation.

His own mother…by her own admission…has no idea why he hated feminists so much.

This happened at the same time that I was staging a protest against my alma mater Mount Saint Vincent University…specifically I was going to burn my degree on their campus as an act of protest …and was barred from doing so under the “protection of property act”.

I was not in the least bit surprised when Marc Lepin’s temper tantrum happened…I was only surprised that there was not more incidents of it….if you want to know my theory it was provoked by the hostile environment sexual harrassment of men so prevalent in that era….of course there is none of that on campuses today…(sarcasm)

Time is running out, the Islamic Death Cult will not want their Brothers in other Countries to think that Canadian Muslims are going soft. I suspect that Canada’s next attack will be designed to get the attention of the World. We can only hope that our Law Enforcement Officers are awake and not to occupied in relieving honest Canadians of their firearms.

Canada has many soft targets: West Ed Mall and Stampede for example in Alberta.

Even softer targets are the many summer music and cultural festivals throughout the country. These would be the greatest concern because a muslim satanist can more easily infiltrate pretending to be a performer or a member of that cultural community.

Mr. Wilson is correct that we have been lucky and have had good anti-terrorist policing. How long will that policing last though, with Baby Doc?

Since 9/11 – IN THE NAME OF ISLAM (SATAN): 33,460 Attacks, 215,594 Killed, 297,000 Injured that we know of

The massacre at Ecole Polytechnique was in 1989. This mass-murderer was born Gamil Rodrigue Liass Gharbi, he changed his name to Marc Lepine when he was fourteen.
This was the first jihadist terrorist attack in Canada, not widely known. He was described as a disturbed misogynist, anti-feminist. He was not referred to as a muslim then, and, very rarely now.

Let’s not forget that Aaron Driver’s bomb failed to go off properly, otherwise the taxi would have blown up and killed the driver and at least one cop. It doesn’t get any closer than that.
commented 2017-06-05 18:22:26 -0400
The SJW idiots like to quote death stats when they say Canada is not in danger , they always seem to go silent when someone points out the number of prevented attacks though, as if that means they do not matter.
commented 2017-06-05 18:13:28 -0400
Yes, we’ve been fortunate not to have had more terrorist events in Canada…so far.
Justin is hastening the eventual deadly attacks on Canadian soil by proclaiming our borders open, and by changing the law so that terrorists will not lose their citizenship.
…and so we wait.
