Prof Mansur on the latest Canadian jihadis

Prof Mansur says what must be said. He understands the jihadis and how they must be stopped.

Stop quibbling over terror profiling

The arrests last week in Ottawa and London, Ont., of four of eight suspects allegedly linked with the global Islamist movement reveal again how vulnerable Canada and other democracies are to Islamist “homegrown” terrorism.

The arrested suspects — Canadian Muslims with college degrees, of Pakistani and Middle Eastern origin, in their 20s and two of them trained as medical professionals (Dr. Khurram Sher, 28, and X-ray technician Misbahuddin Ahmed, 26) — fit the profile of a segment of young Muslim males in the West embracing the terror-filled “jihadi” ideology of Islamism, and allegedly prepared to kill and maim their fellow-citizens.

Not down and out

These alleged terrorists are not emerging from the ranks of the desperate poor, hungry and homeless. They come mostly from the aspiring middle class background of immigrant families, and their education ironically makes them readily susceptible to the sort of identity politics that thrives on the cocktail of Third World resentments and grievances.

As I have written on numerous occasions, Islamism is a political ideology dressed in religious garments. It is a modern phenomenon — a totalitarian movement alongside the two other similar movements from the last century, fascism and communism — and appealing to those college educated Muslims who feel acutely distressed by the disparity between their native culture and the modern West.

Most Canadians would say that "If it walks like a duck and if it looks like a duck then it must be a duck". This isn't a law but it is a universal truism of the common peoples' outlook on events.

Just because many Muslims SAY that they oppose the death penalty (Mosque inspired) against Infidels and Shi'ite and or Sunnis, it doesn't mean that what they say is true. Their own Koran advises them to lie about such circumstances.

Please do not interpret what I just posted as a blanket condemnation. Only take from it that I am extremely skeptical about the sincerity of faithful Muslims in furthering our English Common Law Inheritance that has been growing and fairly working for us for generations.

Notwithstanding the new Canadian Constitution which in my understanding is still subject to basic common law derivatives.

i think blanket condemnations are in order. i have not seen or heard of even ten muslims denouncing the evil that is going on in islam.
