Toronto Terror Attack On The Danforth

Rebel Staff

On Sunday night (July 22, 2018), in the lovely Toronto neighbourhood of the Danforth, a terrorist calmly walked down the street, shooting everyone he saw. He murdered a ten-year-old girl and an eighteen-year-old woman. He injured many more too. 

Police quickly identified him, saying he was “known to police”. That, and his age, 29, was immediately published — but authorities declined to give his name for almost 20 hours. 

Then on Monday, in a move that can only be described as choreography, the police released the name of the terrorist — Faisal Hussain. 

And immediately, simultaneously, a reporter at the CBC, Shanifa Nasser, published an unsigned letter purportedly from the terrorist’s family. 

But of course it wasn’t written by them — older Muslim migrants; it was written by some professional PR person, saying Hussain had suffered from mental illness his entire life.

Then ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, but many in the Canadian media were quick to refute those claims. 

We still don't know exactly what happened, and there are many questions that still need to be answered. But The Rebel will continue to investigate until we know, wherever the truth may lead.

You can watch all of The Rebel's reports on the attack on this page.

Muslims are the real victims narrative begins

You knew that was coming, part of the MSM agenda.

Folks, there’s a flat out letter from the IRF to the Huntsville Forester May 12/18 telling Ontarians straight to their naiive faces exactly what they will do to Toronto and our vibrant tourism. So far they’ve actually done 3 of the 5 atrocities in the letter. One: " destroy your beaches" seeding Bracebridge, Kirby’s, Huntsville and Port Dover beaches with rusty nails, glass shards, fishing hooks and needles! Two: they will " start devastating forest fires ". There are now 44 fires in Muskoka alone, the latest approaching Parry Sound and the trans-Canada highway that was started last Friday. Three: “hurt your people”. The Danforth shooting occurred just prior to the long August weekend and the very popular Taste of the Danforth!
The two not done yet: “derail your trains” and “poison your water”.
Wake up people because the letter ends with this dire warning: “Hurt us, we hurt you. Anyway we can”.

Mohammad Trudeau’s PR firm released the statement by the “parents” almost before the terrorist did his killings.

Hey Faith!

Yes, you! Faith Goldy!

Demand what CBC and the MSM ain’t gonna ask for: a full investigation by an independent agency into the circumstances of the visit by MTPS to the murderer’s home. Why were they there, what did they do? What should they have done.

And, if the murderer was truly insane with a long history of mental illness, how come the family isn’t berating police for failing to take him into protective custody when they had the chance?
commented 2018-07-31 18:45:21 -0400
But I digress….sorry for getting off the topic.

The real issue is, what are ALL the circumstances surrounding the visit(s) by Toronto Police to the murderer’s home?

C’mon CBC, Tor Star, CTV, Globe and Mail! We’re counting on ya to ask those hard but necessary questions!

Ha ha ha ha ha….heee hee hee hhee heee, …….

let me get this straight if a white guy with an illegal gun shoots somebody he is a white alt right kkk member and even though the gun was illegal and according to turdo and the insane left all guns should be banned but if a wacko muslim terrorist goes on a shooting spree then the man needs help because he is mentally ill and not responsible for his actions and is not a murderous terrorist imported by turdo and his corrupt libtard’s party , this according to the cbc and the rest of the msm in Canada , I think we are doomed as there is no trump in Canada and Scheer is a big effing joke catering to the lefty wackos and the globalist agenda and if he has a pair they’re so small he couldn’t even play marbles with them .

William, I agree posting sources is appropriate.
Carbon MONoxide, of course, my bad.

Hey, Liza thanks for the tip about Faith’s video. It quotes my article about 20 times – verbatim, and times in paragraph long segments. She might not know that CFP posted the story. I sent Ezra a copy on Saturday and he might have forwarded it her. I AM NOT AT ALL UPSET ABOUT THIS. I wanted this information out there and it really only took me 4 or 5 hours to both research and write the piece. She should quote her sources, though. No biggy. By the way: it was carbon MONoxide not dioxide.

Yes that is going around William, good article. Faith did a youtube also. Senator Frum tweeted the possibility over the weekend. The basement was full of carfentynal and a truck load of guns. Carfentanil is thousands of times stronger than heroin, thousands of times stronger than fentanil grain of sand size would kill you, designed to take down an elephant. Carfentanil is as toxic as any nerve agent. The brother is lucky to be in a coma in the hospital if he was playing with Carfentanil, did the cops miss that clue from last year? And they met with the shooter last month , Williams article points out for a carbon dioxide leak? I sure would like to know if that is what the authorities are saying of if it was ‘something’ else. That much carfentanil would surely have some off gassing.
Its time to stop hiding the truth. Its time for Canadians to be on guard…for their lives.

Is it just me? Or are there other folks out there who are really, really curious about ALL the details of the Toronto Police visit with the murderer a month or so before the killings?

Could this be another one of the many situations where sufficient information/evidence was available at the time to arrest the areshole, but police failed to act?

Is this the reason the police are going along with the “depression and psychosis” line (much easier to pedal than we-let-a-terrorist-go-free line) and the Mayor runs with the deflecting story that GUNS ARE THE PROBLEM?

Why do ‘good’ Muslims try to protect murdering terrorists? You would think they would want to stand with the victims, or at least distance themselves.

The mans sign read, " CBC presents Little House on the Prairie, two dead girls in Greektown". He is thrown in the fountain, yelled at and mocked.

Two girls were murdered in Greektown. The CBC is trying to spin it. The apologists are trying to flood with their subterfuge, and the ‘good’ Muslims say nothing or they say something we already know and which does nothing to change who and what was responsible for wounding 13 and killing two.
Not productive.

Russia is helping thousands of Syrians go home again. They are happy to go home. Lebanon is also returning Syrians. Hundreds of thousands of them. Justin is bringing in how many new Syrian migrants? White hats , supposed ’hero’s’ with very questionable reputations, (ask the refugees who are returning to Syria how they feel about the white hats we are told are hero’s) These are Islamists , wolves in sheep’s clothing. As if Canada needs more of that. As if Canada isn’t already full up with enough wolves masquerading as sheep.

Thanks Robert M. for this link,

Muslim,“Not all Muslims are bad”
Guy holding sign that two girls are dead, responded,“I don’t know about Muslims, I talked about Islam!”

Then a liberal apologist threw the guy into the fountain. Then the ‘muta ween’ finally came over. I hope the sign holder lays charges for assault and writes a complaint against the Toronto Police for not protecting his right to peaceful free speech. I just do not understand this cognitive dissidence regarding Islam. It is going to get us killed and overtaken. Why do the left refuse to learn about Islam?? How can anyone be THAT morally vain as to be utterly blind to the facts about Islam, and the Muslim Brotherhoods plan for our country?

The plan is for North America, but the U.S. is lucky enough to have a leader who is going to protect their country from the expanding caliphate. Our leaders are gleefully inviting it in.

I love apostates.

Geez as if this Islamic terror event isn’t disturbing enough, I just read Senator Linda Frum’s tweet about carfentanil.

Anyone who googles Carfentanil will see there’s a lot more to this story that we’re not being told.

“The toxicity of carfentanil in humans and its ready commercial availability has aroused concerns over its potential use as a weapon of mass destruction by rogue nations and terrorist groups”

What is the killers brother in a coma from? He was a fentanil dealer and I hope the authorities are rounding up all of his ‘acquaintances’ for an interview, as well as his parents and any other relatives. Its time to stop playing games with Canadian’s lives Justin.
