Canadian Terrorists, Eh?

Surprise, surprise, out of Toronto’s immense population of terrorist sympathizing scum bags, 17 have been accused of plotting terrorist attacks against Canadian government targets as well as plotting to blow up the CN Tower. More disconcerting is that the men successfully acquired 5 tons of ammonium nitrate, 5 times the amount used in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.

Apparently the 17 men were all members of the same mosque so naturally this would be a good time for the congregation and Torontos Islamic community to condemn the terrorist plot but………….yea we are still waiting for that to happen. Following this lack of condemnation the mosque has been defaced by thrown rocks and broken windows which the congregation did speak out against with a small rally in front of the mosque accompanied by chants by the congregation condemning the American military presence in Afghanistan.

I don’t understand why this problem continues to arise. If I was a Buddhist and some crazy guys in my temple decided to blow up the local Wal-Mart. I would make it my duty to publicly condemn their actions in order to erase any conceptions that the congregation and I share the same violent and murderous beliefs. To be fair this particular mosque might not be versed in public relations and due to lack of experience passed on the opportunity to condemn the groups actions, however I think when you fail to condemn your brothers who plan to murder innocent people but do condemn people for throwing stones at the mosque, it may send a mixed message as to your priorities. Certainly the community, Muslim or otherwise would have supported the congregation in speaking out against aggression towards the mosque had they first spoke out against the terrorist plotters.

I think if more mosques in general would speak out against actions like these --and as you point out, obviously the mosques in which the nutburgers (sorry, but if you are a terrorist you are nutburger) are members --it would go a long way to not only improve relations between muslims and others but would also curb wanna-be nutburgers from, uh, going nuts.

Ya hit the nail on the head here.
