New Canadian Terror Database: Naked Doukhabors a bigger threat than jihadis

Partially naked Doukhabors in the 1960s. More explicit photos (rather grainy) can be seen by searching for ‘naked Doukhabors’.

A Canadian database launched on Thursday will break down the motivation and geography of violent attacks to help lawmakers craft more targeted policies to combat extremism, the site’s developer said.

The Canadian Incident Database was unveiled a week after Canada’s Conservative government approved Bill C-51, anti-terror legislation that expands the powers of the country’s police and intelligence agencies in the wake of two attacks in 2014 that brought an international war on terrorism to Canadian soil.

“What is important about the database is that it puts terrorism violence in perspective,” said James Ellis, who oversaw the project developed through the Canadian Network for Research on Terrorism, Security and Society.

“Over the past 55 years, we’ve seen terrorism come from a variety of sectors. It hasn’t been monopolized by just one group,” he said.

Canadian Muslims have said they have been unfairly tarnished by the media and by the government following the attacks last year on two Canadian soldiers in Ottawa and Montreal by Islamic extremists who had converted to the faith.

The database, which was put together with five university partners, compiled 1,815 incidents of terrorism and extremism between 1960 and 2014 that occurred either on Canadian soil or had a Canadian connection abroad…

Before you visit the Canucki terror data base check out this list of Muslim Terror Attacks for the months  January thru April of 2015. Be prepared for a long scroll to get to the end.

The link takes you to the main page. From there, I clicked on “Search Forms” and was presented with a list of incidents from 1960 involving Doukhabors in BC.

I vaguely recall hearing about them when I was a child.  They were a bizarre sect from Russia. Some of them settled in the Kootenays of BC. I remember that they liked to parade naked and start fires.   Many younger or non-Canadian readers have likely never heard of them.

However, there is a slight difference between Doukhabors and jihadis: it was a tiny, crazy sect that caused trouble for several years but has not been heard from in decades.

I do not need to tell the readers of this site how widespread jihadi terror is, that it has been going for 1400 years and that it shows no sign of let-up.

On the “About” page, it says:

In December 2013, Public Safety Canada and Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) awarded TSAS funding from the National Security Data Initiative (NSDI) of the Canadian Safety and Security Program (CSSP) to develop the CIDB.

The NSDI is overseen by representatives of Public Safety, RCMP, CSC, FINTRAC and Statistics Canada.

The purpose of the CIDB is to provide unclassified information to national security researchers, which can be used to identify patterns and trends in order to improve our understanding of terrorism and extremist crime in Canada.

Well, they’ve got the Doukhabors nailed. Any signs of resurgence and the police will quickly act.

  • I’m grateful we have the naked Doukhobor threat under control.

      I share your relief. I have had nightmares about hordes of swinging, hairy genitalia coming at me in the night. There are no pills….

    To be exactly exact, the tiny extremist Doukhabor faction, called The Sons of Freedom, had a one sided feud going on with all other Doukhabors in particular and the world in general.

    I, for one, welcome our new uninhibited garlic-breathed earthy overlords.

    It’s still too cold in these parts to carry out a Dhoukabor-style ‘attack’…

    *lightbulb moment* – Maybe that’s why they set the fires??? 😉

    The Sons of Freedom may have been a tiny extremist element, but they caused a fair bit of havoc in the West Kootenay – Boundary area of SE BC in their time. They renounced worldly things, and had a habit of helping others to renounce same by torching buildings. They also set off a fair few bombs, none of which – fortunately – did much damage. They bombed the pillow display in the Trail Eaton’s store. They tried to blow up the Post Office by putting a bomb down the parcel chute, but that didn’t work (there would have been casualties had it succeeded). Also tried to blow up the Cominco Arena – again no success.
    As an aside, to show their disdain of worldly values, they would strip. Or at least the women would – don’t remember seeing photos if necked men. Their biggest success was at the Conservative election rally when John Diefenbaker was present.
    Finally, they blew up the transmission towers for the line crossing Kootenay Lake, throwing the east side of the lake into darkness. Fortunately there was no night shift on at the Bluebell Mine, Riondel, or there could have been a tragedy as the mine workings were mostly under the lake and subject to serious seepage. All the lumber mills down the valley were put out of action, and this for several weeks. Fortunately for the Sons of Freedom, the only feasible way from East to West Kootenay was via the Balfour ferry, and the RCMP seriously restricted access to same.
    As has been said, this was a small, radical minority of Doukhobours who wanted to return to their collective roots, and were particularly virulent against the main-stream Doukhobours who were abandoning collectivism – and the distinctive two-house villages – for individual land ownership. I remember travelling through Grand Forks during this era and seeing armed guards at the local Doukhobour community hall: not RCMP, but local men guarding their own.

      Who says Canadian history is dull!

      • Frances

        Particularly if it’s going on in your neighbourhood, so to speak.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Mine isn’t. My exploding little Ontario town is a hotbed of political corruption and intrigue. And it’s being run by an ex-cop! What a surprise, huh?

    luckily Harper is not afraid to call islamic terrorism what it is: islamic terrorism. every other world leader is afraid to do so.

    • david selvers

      Because of the communist media here in Canada Harper does not get the recognition he deserves and is worthy of. He’s got more balls than “barrack HUSSEIN obama” who is absolutely useless, in fact, he is a “USELESS IDIOT” (ACTIVE MEASURES ) .
      FYI the ndp otherwise known as the “NEW DESPERATE PROLETARIAT” not only supports the islamic terrorist state of Palestine but it wants Canada to allow muslims the right to practice SHARIA…..next will be self governance.

    To all muslims…..we are not going to make it easy for you in Canada. Jihadi Swine is not welcome here. Your ideological agenda consisting of “world domination” fails right here regardless of what the left thinks. I’m willing to go as far as to say that no person of islamic ideology should be permitted to own a firearm….I’m serious.
    I’ll get along with muslims better if they’re 5,000 miles away and if they stop killing in the name of ALLAH, and stoning their women, and become civilized.
    And what is being preached inside these mosques is too much of a secret, it’s time to order that audio/visual transcripts be made every time the doors of the musk open.
    SACRED DECEPTION is condoned by islam in accordance with the quran, how are we to trust anyone who tells us they’re our friend but is waiting for the opportunity to kill us? Based on this “EDICT” alone I CAN NOT permit myself to coexist with an implacable cult that refuses to coexist….but claims otherwise and continuously play the victim card.
