Canadians getting more radicalized....

More people are joining the jihad.....
Increasing numbers of Canadians are becoming radicalized, taking up violent jihad and leading Canada to become an exporter of terrorism, a top Mountie told QMI Agency Tuesday.

“We are seeing more and more Canadians being radicalized and deciding to support the (Islamist) cause through violence,” said Gilles Michaud, the RCMP Assistant Commissioner in charge of the force's national security criminal investigations. “It is a growing trend that we are very concerned about.” Up until recently, officials believed terror threats would come exclusively from outside Canada and efforts were made to beef up the borders, Michaud said.

“Now, what we are seeing is that threat is growing from inside and is going elsewhere,” he said. “It’s like we are exporters of terrorism to a certain extent.” Michaud’s comments come as the Al-Qaida-linked and Somali-based Al-Shabaab group claimed responsibility for co-ordinated bomb attacks in the Ugandan capital of Kampala that killed 76 people Sunday.

Senior White House administration officials said Tuesday the bombing was Al-Shabaab’s first terrorist act outside Somalia’s borders. Although they believe Uganda was targeted because of its support for Somalia’s transitional government, other countries, including Western states, could also be attacked by the “exceptionally violent” group, they said.

In Canada, at least six young Somali-Canadian men from the Toronto-area are believed to have joined Al-Shabaab. One is presumed to have died overseas.

Michaud said there are many more cases of individuals from across the country, including a few Western converts, who travelled abroad to join the jihad movement in places like Pakistan, Afghanistan and Yemen, where Al-Qaida is a serious threat. He would not give a specific number but said it was less than a hundred individuals.

Why are they surprised? Or are they faking it?

THEY, the gov have allowed this to happen because they never bothered to clamp down on it years ago. Same in UK. Then, they just use it as an excuse to make more repressive laws that are used against everybody!

Here in UK, muslims are allowed great processional marches across the city, shouting with flags, when EDL have a demo, they are not allowed to have flag-poles in case they attack someone!!

If the gov is trying to instigate civil war they are succeeding.

What they want is a supine and slave population, kept in check by muslims!
