Global News “sugar coats” threat posed by returning ISIS fighters

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

A Global News story about the threat posed by returning ISIS fighters, headlined  “ISIS fighters are coming back to Canada. Are they a threat? It’s complicated: report” is a real head scratcher.

The authors of the referenced report used a study from the Soufan Center to make their conclusions but a close comparison of both pieces might leave you wondering if Global News read the same report.

The study couldn’t make the security threat posed by Canadians returning home from fighting alongside the Islamic State, clearer.

It discusses different types of returnees, stating: “All returnees, whatever their reason for going home, will continue to pose some risk.”

Global News managed to sugar coat facts that demonstrate it’s not just male returnees that we should be worried about with study authors noting that ISIS has trained child terrorists, and even women have been involved in plotting and executing terrorist acts.

We know first-hand that returning ISIS sympathizers present a risk to Canadians when just last month, a single terrorist attempted to stab a police officer and execute a truck attack that injured another four people in Edmonton.

In fact, it appears Global’s own expert, former CIA chief and now adjunct professor at Simon Fraser University, Graham Fuller, agrees that even one single terrorist poses a safety risk to Canadians, telling the news organization:

“I don’t think many of these people do constitute a threat, but how many does it take?”

Of course, his statement was buried at the end of the article.

Either way it seems we all agree that returnees pose a serious threat to Canadians, except Global News.

Only the rebel is supported by the people where as the Liberal propaganda machine is also supported by the people ( taxes ). Forced is not a democracy . Until these news outlets report where their money comes from I will never trust them.
Soon a jihadist 6/49 they all just went home for a wedding or a vacation or what ever . False persecution .

Global News is a legitimate news outlet in Canada. They have real reporters and a budget to investigate stories of importance to Canadians.

The Rebel is also legitimate, albeit at the level of opinion and hearsay.

Both are parts of Canadian democracy.

Evelyn, I misunderstood, thanks for clarifying.
You are right, they are gutless fools.
commented 2017-10-29 19:18:28 -0400
I hope they had a pal before they went there would not like to see them breaking the law . Oh silly me they would probably get a pass on that too . All the Liberal ship of fools must go now .

Yet more confirmation of why I cancelled cable TV.

Tammie: I know, but I was referring to the gutless fools who are allowing all this to happen.

Evelyn Cooper, I think William was referring to the 60 returning ISIS terrorists, no publication of their photos and names that I’m aware of.

William: Actually, the names of the current Members of Parliament are all publicly displayed on the Internet.

They won’t even make these murderous freaks names available to the pubic for obvious reasons,

Times like this remind me of a old tune from Johnny Horton.. "They ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn’t go…they ran so fast that the hounds couldn’t catch’em…down to Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico…hup two three four..hup two three four..

I think the liberals are paid off, and the conservatives are just scared and trying to figure out where they are going to fit into a Canadastan . They are trying to suss out just how much they will have to submit to save their hides. They won’t do anything about these ISIS scum returning. To hell with the country.

Are you kidding ! Of course that idiot Mohammad “bin” Trudeau will welcome them as heroes and cut them each10.5 million dollar cheques while being cheered on by “our” fake news MSM ……..meanwhile if some white redneck sneezes in his trailer park down in Kentucky or North Carolina it’s white supremist KKK Apocolypse time on the CBC and every MSM front page in Canada !

And in 20 years when Canada has been eliminated and the land and resources turned over to the UN, people will say “to think that this has happened and orchestrated by Canada’s own suicidal Parliament and the Provincial governments across the country.

If you live in Canada and leave to fight with isis, you are now a traitor. Your passport will be suspended and you no longer are protected by Canada period. There should be an arrest warrant issued in your name if you ever show your face in these parts ever again! If you are captured in a conflict (like they so often did to SS during WW11), you will likely be shot , and if not shot on the battlefield you will get your wish to come (home) to Canada to be hanged until you are dead. The memory of all Canadian fatalities and injuries (plus the sad situation with the Speers family should come in to play here)……right Justine bin trudope ?…I can’t hear you!!!!!

I would have to say yes Muta Ween, yes it is. That blasphemy law gets passed, it is all over in this country.

Returning terrorists and ISIS fighters and sympathizers pose a defined threat in terms of violent actions. But isn’t Iqra Khalid and her M-103 more dangerous given that it will abrigate our rights to free speech?

This will repercuss on the tiny spud regime – believe it. There WILL be incidents and there is only one person in this country who OWNS the culpability in domestic terror.

In the minds of these ostriches, I have to wonder…….. when what they have mislabelled as the right’s ‘fear mongering’ finally seeps down into the hole’s they have their heads buried into, will they have time to react to the wake up call, to pull out and defend themselves or will they never know what hit them, and be heard muttering a muffled, “stop! stop! there is no need to be unkind!”
Head down and butt up ,isn’t exactly the defense position I would recommend.

Hi Holly. Good to see the rebel expose Global for what they truly are.
commented 2017-10-27 21:54:58 -0400
Thanks HOLLY, for these (other side news reports)
The religion of peace last month performed 162 attacks , resulting in 919 murders , not to mention numerous life long lasting debilitating injuries

The Canadian lungenpressers will have blood on their hands for aiding and giving comforting excuses for returning Muslim murderers

Liberal back benchers? Where are the conservatives, where is Scheer! Already there is no proper law and order in this country. How many more bills of convenience by the liberals before we have out and out Islamic chaos?
commented 2017-10-27 21:13:58 -0400
Bravo Zulu, great post.
Trash the entire bag!

Liberal back benchers seem to have had their spines reduced to jelly!
commented 2017-10-27 20:56:44 -0400
The truth is that all might not be bad.

So, if I offer you a bag of Smarties with 1000 candies in the bag but told you that three are deadly poison – how many will you feed to your kids or grandkids before you trash the remainder?

Or would you trash them all?

In fact the returning isis fighters all need to be banished and refused entry n to Canada.

There will be trouble ahead because of this.

The media will hush it up.

The islamic prime minister will welcome them with open arms.

I have to wonder – are there ANY liberal back benchers who have the steel in their spine to say “ENOUGH!!!!”????

Keith Barnes—The Islamic UK lets Isis Fighters come back to Britain with OPEN ARMS. It was reported Oct 25 that they welcomed back 400 Isis fighters and deported 1, who fought against Isis.
It is true that the male Politicians and Military wanted to kill them in Syria, but just like Sweden, Britain is run by Women. Old Theresa May and Dumb Amber Rudd said that these fighters left the UK because they are Naive, therefore we should not punish them.
This is why Women shouldn’t have certain positions in politics, as their Motherly instincts take over their Common Sense. Look at Mother Merkel and the irreparable damage she has done to Europe, by letting in millions of scum.
Keith, I know that you were British in the 70’s, but it’s different now, as the men are neutered and the BRITISH BULLDOG IS DEAD, killed by Islam. It is a toss-up which Country becomes Islamic first, Britain or Sweden.

Why is Global in spin mode for Trudope?
Thanks Holly for giving the other side of the story.

Global News is like “news lite” for those who can’t handle any form of real news.
commented 2017-10-27 16:46:51 -0400
Any returning ISIS fighters conduct a terrorist attack with a loss of Canadian lives, then Global and Trudeau should be sued.
