“The government has again revised a report that is supposed to update Canadians on the major terrorist threats they face, removing all references to Islamist extremism.”
Robert Spencer rightly referenced Justin Trudeau as “Canada’s Obama” upon the Trudeau’s election in 2015.
“While the report, first released in December, had initially identified attackers “inspired by violent Sunni Islamist ideology” as the main terrorist threat to Canada, that line has now been cut.”
Consider the parallel approach in the face of the threat of jihad between the Trudeau government and Obama Administration:
Donald J. Trump’s National Security Strategy, published in December 2017, flew in the face of every effort by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and those who manipulate the “Islamophobia” subterfuge. It identified the jihad threat to America, a departure from the policy of the Obama administration, which purged any use of language that accurately described the role of Islamic doctrine, law, and scripture inanalyzing the ideology behind global Islamic terrorism.
In 2009, a senior Obama White House aide urged the U.S. government to desist from using the term “jihadist”—“asserting that terrorists are simply extremists.” Two years later, the White House ordered a scrubbing of all training materials government-wide that Islamic groups deemed to be offensive. The Obama White House then issued a formal edict to remove all teachings on Islam from law enforcement, intelligence, and the military, while the FBI disposed of “pages of information that warned about the threat from the Brotherhood.”
Canada is in deep trouble at the hands of an appeasing government which refuses to identify its worst enemies; a government which also lead the charge on the UN Migration Pact, supports open door immigration and has gone so far as to even welcome Islamic State jihadists, because in Trudeau’s mind they can be “a powerful voice for deradicalization”.
Although the Trudeau government also enraged India over removal of the term “Sikh extremism“, it is pertinent to understand that there is no global war on terror against Sikhs. It is contained within a region, much like many other faction wars, for example, in skirmishes involving the Irish Republican Army and the war with the Tamil Tigers that Sri Lanka ended 10 years ago, but has still left scars etc. The global war on jihad terror however threatens all infidel countries. It is a 1400 year violent and stealth war based on conquest and Islamic supremacism. The Trudeau government’s recklessness in failing to identify–and thus target–the biggest threat to Canadians, merely allows that threat to proliferate and further threatens public safety. It also poses a clear risk to its neighbor, the United States. Such an approach is as preposterous as omitting references to Nazism and Communism during the height of wars against both forces of totalitarianism.
“Government removes all mention of ‘Sunni’ and ‘Shia’ extremism from terrorism threat report”, by Stewart Bell, Global News, April 2, 2019:
The government has again revised a report that is supposed to update Canadians on the major terrorist threats they face, removing all references to Islamist extremism.
While the report, first released in December, had initially identified attackers “inspired by violent Sunni Islamist ideology” as the main terrorist threat to Canada, that line has now been cut.
All mentions of “Sunni” and “Shia” extremism were also taken out of the annual report, along with section headings on both types of terrorism.
The government had already cut the term “Sikh extremism” from the report following complaints. A section heading on violence linked to the fight for an independent Sikh homeland is now gone.
“The content is still there, but some subheads were removed,” Scott Bardsley, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale’s spokesperson, said Thursday.
He later added that the report had “unintentionally maligned certain communities” and the government wanted a “bias-free approach” to terms used to describe terrorism.
“A broader review of the language used to describe extremism is ongoing.”
