Sorry, Justin Trudeau, but radical Islam is a problem
In Justin Trudeau’s Canada, if I mention the Islamist ties of Akbardzhon Dzhalilov, the 22-year-old suspected of carrying out the subway bombing that killed 14 in St. Petersburg, Russia on Monday, am I guilty of Islamophobia?
What if I also mention that Khalid Masood, the man who mowed down scores of pedestrians, killing three, and stabbed a police officer to death outside the British Parliament last week, was a convert to Islam? Am I guilty of a crime against Canada’s new politically correct speech codes?
I admit, what constitutes a Muslim terror attack is not always black-and-white. Was London’s Masood driven by Islamist fervor or by his long, troubled criminal past? Or maybe a bit of both?
And what about Soleiman Hajj Soleiman, the Syrian refugee arrested at West Edmonton Mall in February after he allegedly groped six underage girls in the mammoth mall’s waterpark? There are lots of non-Muslim creeps in the world not motivated by their faiths who molest children. Soleiman’s immigration status and faith may well have nothing to do with his alleged crime.
Consider, too, the fact that the U.S. National Counterterrorism Center says while the religion of terror victims is known in only about half of attacks, where it is known, the victims are other Muslims about 90 per cent of the time.
Of the five countries where Muslims commit terror attacks the most, four are Muslim-majority countries – Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nigeria.
However, the case against radical Islam is straightforward enough to say this very un-Trudeau thing: Islam has a problem.
In 2016, there were nearly 2,500 Islamist terror attacks in 59 different countries. In all, jihadis killed 21,000 people and injured 27,000 more. And the number of attacks and deaths have increased nearly five-fold since 9/11.
Things are getting worse, not better.
Glasgow airport, Brussels airport, Istanbul airport, the 84 killed by a jihadist with a truck in Nice last Bastille Day, the 12 killed and 11 wounded at the offices of the magazine Charlie Hebdo, the Bataclan nightclub in Paris, the ramming attack on two Canadian soldiers in Quebec in 2014 followed days later by the terror shootings at the national cenotaph and Parliament Hill, Berlin’s Christmas market, the 2004 Madrid train bombing, the London subway and bus bombings in 2005, the Russian airliner leaving Egypt, the axeman hacking passengers on a German train, the Louvre Museum machete attack in February, these and thousands more attacks were all carried out by confirmed Muslim extremists.
And it may be just as troubling when poorly integrated non-terrorist Muslims get together, as they did in Cologne, Germany on New Year’s Eve 2015. Nearly 2,000 mostly refugee and illegal-immigrant men swarmed and sexually assaulted 1,200 German women in the city’s main plaza.
Such incidents demonstrate the vast gulf between Western and Middle Eastern societies, quite apart from radical Islamic motivations.
The fact that there are exceptions to the rule, that sometimes radical Christians and Jews kill in the name of their religions, too; the fact that the vast majority of Muslims simply want to be left alone to live in peace, doesn’t change the fact that radical Islam is a threat.
But now, thanks to the anti-Islamophobia motion passed in the House of Commons last month, the federal government is conducting a mandatory investigation into examples of anti-Muslim bigotry in the federal government.
If investigators find that CSIS, National Defense and the RCMP have security plans that single out radical Islam, and if those politically correct investigators deem such plan to constitute Islamophobia (which is entirely possible in Trudeau’s Canada), will Canadians be left vulnerable to attack by the dictates of political correctness?
