Home Grown Terrorism

Provocateurs – The Influence of Fanatics and the Traps of Informants

Canada is our beloved homeland. More than 33 million people call Canada home including nearly 1 million Muslims. Similarly, nearly 10 million Muslims call the United States of America home.

The issue of homegrown terrorism is a major concern for all Canadians and Americans. The recent terrorist attacks during Boston Marathon, the arrest of two suspected terrorists in Canada and other arrests of suspected terrorists in the USA and Canada have serious impact on the Muslim community especially on youth and the children. The anti-Islam and anti-Muslim hate mongers are taking full advantage of this situation and creating Islamophobia in Canada and the USA.

The influence of radicalization and extremism on few Muslims through the direct contact with the extre mists or through the Internet is the biggest cause of concern for all Muslims. Organizations like Muslims Against Terrorism and the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada doing their best to counter such influences and educate youth and elders about the positive and the most peaceful nature of Islam. MAT and ISCC work at the grassroots level to eliminate extremism, terrorism and the Islamophobia. The lectures, seminars and the various other educational programs have been very effective in countering the radicalization of Muslim youth.

However, not many Muslim parents, community leaders and Muslim youth are aware of the traps of informants who are paid by the agencies OR anti-Islam organizations to inspire and motivate Muslim youth to become radical OR say / write something that can be seen hateful or a threat. These informants could be Muslims and know Qur’an and hadith mor e than many Muslims. For them nothing matters except money. The innocent Muslim youth are being trapped by these informants in Internet chatting rooms, discussions, gatherings, phone conversations, etc. Unfortunately, the hateful and violent statements of informants are ignored but any statement that a Muslim youth or elder makes in front of them is recorded and presented as evidence to the court and the media. In fact, the informants facilitate, poke and inspire unstable people to make horrible comments. They put words in their mouths. Instead of arranging help for the venerable people who may have some influence of radical thoughts these informants push them further towards radicalization. Informants get the money and the unstable person goes to jail and become shame for the family and the entire community.”
