Trudeau: strategy towards ISIS won’t change even if Paris-style terror attack happens in Canada

Jonathan D. HaleviRebel Blogger

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau does not see any reason to make changes in his policy towards the Islamic State (a.k.a. IS, ISIS and ISIL) and the threat of Islamic motivated terrorism even if Canada becomes a target.

In the end-of-year interview with Global News, Trudeau reiterated his determination to put an end to the Canadian bombing mission of ISIS in Iraq and Syria and to focus on training local forces and taking part in humanitarian efforts.

In this context, Global National anchor Dawna Friesen asked Trudeau (24:51-27:45):


“If God forbid there was an attack on Canada like the one in Paris would that change the equation for you?”

Trudeau answered as follows:


“Obviously, we are working very hard to both insure that Canadian safety, but also not to give in to the narrative that ISIS wants.


“I mean, if they are posting beheadings on the internet and using advanced videos as recruiting tools, one of things that they need, they need people to be terrorized by terror, they need people to be afraid, people need to be polarized, and that what they are trying to do.


“They would love for us to suddenly be afraid, be more afraid and close in and create walls because that makes it easier for them to achieve their goals. We have to be courageous and confident while we protect Canadians.”

Hey Dan… I think that sounds more like blackmail.. Could it be that Ottawa is blackmailing the provinces..?

I have to assume ‘equalization payments’ have contributed to the destruction of those separation of powers between Ottawa and the provinces…

She conveniently failed to ask him how he was going to balance the budget after he runs it up. Of course he would probably come back with the budget will majically balance itself.

Such a fuzzy wuzzy feeling warm all over interview that Dawna Friesen is having with Trudeau. I got so fuzzy & warm I had to shut it down. He says they don’t want to give in to the narrative which is what ISIS wants. What the heck does that mean anyway. ISIS couldn’t care less what Trudeau thinks because they terrorize no matter what & want to kill us all. Trudeau is as naive as they come & like Obama he thinks that if we don’t do anything to offend them they will all be good little boys & girls & not hurt us. I wish that was true,however having a brain in my head puts that nonsense to rest.
Furthermore Dawna, don’t you worry, no matter how the economy is like right now, Trudeau is the knight in shining armour & he will fix everything, just wait & see.

Greg Ficek – it’s too bad that all but one premier is worth his weight in gold! They will all bow down to that empty headed trust fund brat, who likely doesn’t even know how to balance a cheque book on his own.

DAN… Well said.. Canadians as a whole have no idea the powers that each province and territories have and how little dictate we must except and suffer from Ottawa..!!!!!!

From Abe Lincoln’s 1st Inaugural Address with some pertinent Canadian adjustments of which Justin’s use of “…by the better angels of our nature.” is the last line – given about a month before the start of the War of Northern Aggression:

“… I do not consider it necessary at present for me to discuss those matters of administration about which there is no special anxiety or excitement.
Apprehension seems to exist among the people of Canada that by the accession of a Liberal Administration their property and their peace and personal security are to be endangered. There has never been any reasonable cause for such apprehension. Indeed, the most ample evidence to the contrary has all the while existed and been open to their inspection. It is found in nearly all the published speeches of him who now addresses you. I do but quote from one of those speeches when I declare that—
I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of a Islamist invasion where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.
Those who nominated and elected me did so with full knowledge that I had made this and many similar declarations and had never recanted them; and more than this, they placed in the platform for my acceptance, and as a law to themselves and to me, the clear and emphatic resolution which I now read:
Resolved, That the maintenance inviolate of the rights of Canada, and especially the right of each Province to order and control its own domestic institutions according to its own judgment exclusively, is essential to that balance of power on which the perfection and endurance of our political fabric depend; and we denounce the lawless invasion by armed force of the soil of any Province or Territory, no matter what pretext, as among the gravest of crimes…”

Justin’s handlers are not very good at their job…

His poetic talk is nothing more than Wreckless politics and all amount to turning his back on REAL Canadians that see their tax dollar being Pissed down the toilet every time him and his cabinet of carebears make any kind of decision. How the heck do we fire that goof!!!

Just look at that smug pinched face who thinks that he is going to tell us we have to accept his gift of terrorists, and that we have to play nice. Sorry you pathetic excuse for a leader, but I will never do anything you suggest because you do not own me. I am a citizen of Canada, but you do not, and never will own me personally, and you do not represent me, or most Canadians. You are a traitor and are truly a disaster to Canada, and you haven’t even warmed up the big chair yet. Stop with your incessant lecturing because nobody but your loyal followers hang on every stupid word that you utter. I don’t need some twisted trust kid telling me that I will be nice to those who would rather I were dead.

The Canadian people are the ones who should be very,very afraid, not of ISIS but of Just-un Trou d’eau !

I have never seen such a good example of Dementia, displayed in public. Trudeau sounded like a Teenager, explaining the new rules for a Club he had just formed at Grade School.
This was a truly sickening interview.

He wants Canadians to overcome their, unnatural fear, of Muslims. I would suggest to him. If that is your desire. Stop importing them into Canada, we do not need them.

He needs to have somebody to explain the meanings of Jihad and Hijrah. He needs to be told that Islam and it’s followers, are not compatible with Western Civilization. Islam has one agenda and that is to dominate the world.

He boast’s about the number of Refugees he is allowing to enter Canada, “They land at Heathrow Airport as Refugees and walk out as New Canadians”. There is a 50% chance that one out of every five, of these so called Syrians is actually a Refugee, or is even a Syrian.

Justin Trudeau is a traitor to his Country and needs to be stopped. NOW.

His daddy and our former p.m. was denied entrance into the United States until he became Prime Minister… The reason for his denial into the land of the free was he was an active Communist supporter and a member of the Communist Party in the late 50s and early 60s… He was also a member of the Jesuit order.. For those of you that have time Google the Jesuit order and their agenda. His mother was a whore and an embarrassment to this country and his father was a satanic priest in the Jesuit order pretending to be a Christian.
We need a homegrown leader in this country that will put to referendum every major decision that will affect this country.

How could anyone vote for this two-faced lying fool? He’s so dumb that he is an embarrassment to real Canadians.
commented 2016-01-04 13:43:47 -0500
I started to watch this video and really tried hard to do so, but could not after just a few seconds of watching and listening to this empty headed liar spew his BS. I just can’t stand to watch and listen to the jerk. After he very proudly announced that he became a ‘professional Teacher’ in Vancouver I turned the video off. He is empty headed and also full of himself, makes me want to throw up. I can’t believe that there 30% odd people in this country that voted for this POS. It is also unbelievable and sickening to see media people like Dawna fawn over this jerk, they should almost get a room together.

Years ago there use to be a show on TV called Wild Kingdom in which the participants would go into the wild and catch ferocious acts by wild animals on film. One comment made regularly by one of the commenters was while Jim goes forward to catch the action I will wait back here with the others where it is safe. These words keep coming to mind every time I think of us allowing our allies to go forward and continue the fighting and doing the heavy lifting while we hand out sleeping bags and bid people be warmed be filled. (Turns out the Wild Kingdom got into trouble years later as some of the animal action was staged).

Yeah Justin kissing their ass has worked so well so far. The left is surely radical Islams trained lapdogs. SPEAK Justin SPEAK.
I truly wonder what it would take for these fools to wake up?
commented 2016-01-04 12:51:00 -0500
The most important things to a reporter is what they lead with, which explains why Dawna Friesen is asking about him personally rather than getting right straight to what is really important, about how he is going to destroy … ummmm… I mean “run” the country.

This fawning over Justin “Puff Puff” Trudeau in sickening.
commented 2016-01-04 12:27:07 -0500
What is annoying is that he offers no justification for his position. It’s like I know better but he won’t tell us what experience this higher knowledge is based on and doesn’t feel he needs to. The tough part for the coalition is having one partner act like this might send the wrong message to other partners who could interpret this as our efforts are failing so we might as well quit too . Nothing could be further from the truth. If anything we should have had larger efforts including ground forces from the beginning and this never would have mushroomed to the extent and refugee crisis it has.

Further confirmation that Trudeau, Canada’s Prime Miscreant, is a terrorist friendly nutcase who lacks the education, training, and competence to perform even as a true miscreant!
commented 2016-01-04 12:10:28 -0500
He is one person who is hard to listen to without gagging. And to think this is what we have to put up with for another 4 years.

This is our Brainless Leader folks . . . interviewed by Donna “I’ll bake you a cake” Friesen . . . who grew up in the Peoples’ Republic of MB. When situations change “thinkers” adjust their strategy, Boy Blunder is like his mentor Obama . . . no strategy + no clue ! ! !

I cannot listen to him speak, he has a very irritating way of speaking, plus I think he is a weak and coward leader that is only in office for himself and his rich millionaire friends, just watch all of them get richer and this country get poorer and less safe. I still have a hard time seeing grown men and woman fawn over this guy, I am at a loss as to why.
commented 2016-01-04 11:38:54 -0500
He is still looking for the root cause.

That is because his brother is also a die hard islamic sympathizer.

And of course he truly believes islam is a religion of peace. And lets not forget this:


Submit or die.
