Clear language on jihad from Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper

The day after the attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris, Stephen Harper, the prime minister of Canada, gave one the strongest statements on what the world is really facing when it comes to radical Islam.

  • Jan Morrissy

    Excellent! Canada is getting it together on this.
    Still such a different war than any of us have ever had to fight; no Geneva Convention, needless to say.
    It’s an enemy that is embedded in our streets, towns, cities and countries and lives among us as one of us. Like War of the Worlds, they can spark to life and pop up anywhere with kalashnikovs or suicide bombs et al. It’s a tough war we will win, but at what cost? Have to just wait and see.

    • Maurixio Garcia S

      Just deport them kick them out weather they were born in here or not the solution will be OUT.

      • Xavier

        Do you think that can actually happen?

        • Pete_Brewster

          Of course it can. Those in a position to do it just have to get on with it.

          • Xavier

            You don’t think a policy of deportments based on religion could set a dangerous precedent? Natural born citizens exiled because of their religious beliefs?

      • Jan Morrissy

        It sounds too good to be possible and that’s because it is.
        If it ever gets to that point we will all be in a sorry state, likely suffering from acute radiation sickness and living in paper bags.
        What I mean is, that (explulsion) would be a last resort after certain devastation has occurred.
        This is an ideological war as well as a war that we MUST fight on the ground, exterminating these deluded f**ks wherever they do ‘pop up’!

        Intel on their plans and locations; mosques that preach this and imams etc etc.
        The way Obama is going about this is frustrating. He is trying not to lose any American lives, I realize, but I know many in the armed forces want to fight this growing threat before it spreads….

        Whether-just a friendly correction

  • ontario john

    But Bob Hepburn in today’s Toronto Star says Harper is destroying democracy in Canada. How can the unbiased Star be wrong? And he quotes Rick Mercer so it must be true.

    • Well, once you quote Rick Mercer, all authority is ceded to you.

      • DVult

        He’s just mad because Harper wouldn’t skinny dip with him.

    • Maggat

      Thanks a lot for the tip on Bob Hepburn, I read most of it, then it took 1/2 an hour to clean the puke off my keyboard:^)

      • Surele Surele

        Same here. And I had such a good lunch.

  • Yes, it is clear language.

    Now let’s have some clear actions.

  • moraywatson

    Finally! A world leader, a real one, identifying the root cause of the problem as totalitarians: ie muslims who demand that we live our lives exactly as they decide or else face their consequences.

    • wallyj180

      I’m fine with people looking for the ‘root’ cause. As long as they actually look for the root cause.

      Nowadays when I hear the ‘root cause’ meme being trotted out, I know that they really are looking at anything but islam.

      If the root cause is islam,you can be sure that it will not be mentioned.

  • Ron MacDonald

    It’s time to forget about the so-called “root cause” of terrorism and leave behind smoking ruins and crying widows.

  • Maurixio Garcia S

    He forgot to said that his solution to the country from terrorists will be , 10000 Syrians will be allow to the country under his leadership.

  • Maurixio Garcia S

    Did he mention that he will cancel the 10000 Muslims that he is going bring into the country this year?

  • Alain

    As much as anyone else I get angry about refusing to put a moratorium on further Muslim immigration/refugees, but I am unaware of any other Western leader who has stated openly what we are facing. That is surely something of which to be proud as Canadians. A bit off topic I notice that the recent polls on SNN have clearly been flooded with Muslims and/or their appeasers. When a poll results in the majority disagreeing that Islam is a religion of violence and another poll also has a majority disagreeing with the PM’s statement that we are at war with jihadis or similar words, you know the polls were hijacked by our enemies.

  • SDMatt

    Amazing there’s only one politician who states the patently obvious.

  • pdxnag

    The Muslim War on the World began as long ago as 632 AD.

  • Una Salus

    Harper is such a great prime minister I wish every country had one. Sadly the Canadians are so Canadian I don’t think they even realize how good he is.

    • Maurixio Garcia S

      He is such a great leader that even David Suzuki , toll and audience in Washington DC few years ago Harper is a leader Not to be Trusted.

      • DD_Austin

        Suzuki is just a CBC professional progressive parasite
        I got no problem with you slamming Harper, just do it right.
        citing pieces of shit slamming him just makes him look better.

        Loud, drunk wench, engaged in
        inarticulate political discourse
        Why, Christ, why
        does she have to be on my side?

        —Seamus Dundee

        • Maurixio Garcia S

          Ok then why does he has 2 faces ,one pretending to be against Muslims terrorists and protecting democracy,they the other face he has is bringing in another 10000 of them is that right for you???

          • Karmel

            Apparently too much pressure has been put on him from the U.N. and special interest groups, exactly the people who don’t vote for him or his party!!

            We all really need to sen him a letter concerning this huge, 10,000 person mistake he is making.

          • DD_Austin

            Much better

      • DVult

        David Suzuki is a complete asshole.

  • Maggat
  • terrence
  • favill

    Blah…blah…blah….His words would be more believable if he would de-fund and outlaw provincial “human rights” tribunal….so people can tell the truth about Islam without having their lives destroyed by officials of the state.

  • Pete_Brewster

    Yawn. Give me a call when Ottawa starts stringing up imams and dynamiting mosques.

  • EarlyBird

    Someone knows elections are coming indeed! Trying to attract the conservatives votes, yet doesn’t mean much since he hasn’t taken any serious actions about it. Tomorrow he’ll say diversity is Canada’s strength or something similar.

  • CMH

    Could someone please tell Mr Harper that JIHAD IS THE KEY REQUIREMENT OF THE FAITH please. Honestly, I used to think he was a scholarly man but that has now faded away in light of his ridiculous, uneducated comments. I am embarrassed to be a supporter.

  • Destroyer-Drone

    Make the best out of the Harper years. Where I live, that kind of speech is unimaginable.

    • Xavier

      In the U.S. he would be silenced and then the IRS, NSA, DHS, FCC, CIA, FBI, and CBC would investigate him until they found something to ruin him.

      • Destroyer-Drone

        It would be so out of place in my lil’ corner of Western Europe that his demise would truly be unpredictable.

        • disqus_W6sfZCiOd8

          You’re right. We won’t see it until Justin Trudeau becomes PM.

          • Jan Morrissy

            NOOOoooOOOO Justin Trudeau as Prime minister!!! What a nightmare!

          • BillyHW

            It’s going to happen because women vote.

          • Jan Morrissy

            You think he’s a good looking man? I’m a woman and I would eat nails before voting for the ‘lithping’ freak.

  • mobuyus

    The cbc is going off the rails over Harpers acknowledgement that we are at war with Islamic jihadis.

    • Exile1981

      thats because the cbc are a bunch of tools.

      • mobuyus

        As an old Carpenter I remember when tools had some use.These tools are absolutely useless to anyone other than the enemy.

    • Alain

      That confirms that is on the right track even for those of us who think he should be doing more.

  • Ho Hum

    If he understands the jihadist threat so well why does Harper continue to flood Canada with Muslims? On the day of the Paris attack his government announced they were going to bring 10,000 Syrian “refugees” (jihadists) to Canada. In the time that Harper has been PM Canada’s Muslim population has almost DOUBLED to over a MILLION! There is a huge contradiction between Harpers “tough talk” and his actual actions.

  • David Murrell

    Good off the cuff comments fro our prime minister.

    The problem is is that it received very little space in our pro-Liberal media. And few commentators mentioned it over the past few days. One reason the media elites hates Harper so much is that he speaks so strongly against Islamist jihadism. Our media elites — like the Star, the CBC, CTV and the Globe and Mail — support Islam and Islamisn. So these media want Trudeau to beat harper this coming September.

    • Jay Currie

      I’m not sure our media elites “support” Islamism; rather they are terrified of being accused of being “racist” if they at the least bit critical.

  • JohnStefanyszyn

    Prime Minister Harper, you declared today (Jan. 30, 2015) that…”Violent jihadism “is not a human right.”

    ….Sir, it depends in whose eyes.

    In the eyes of the self-justified, self-righteous jihadist, this violence is his right, is right.

    ….which is an example of extremist freedom…doing what is right in one’s own eyes… just as one justifies the violence of fornication, abortion, self-glorification, etc.

    He also believes that his prophet and his god give him the freedom to kill in their names.

    You can be sure, that in his heart, as he is demonically screaming allahu akbar, that he embraces his right and justification to kill his victims.

    However, you can also be sure, that, if arrested and judged, when pressured, he will turn to his lawyers and the belief in “religious rights” in order to defend himself and his actions.

    President Obama described this jihadist violence as an “evil” and as a “cancer”.

    True, it is a grievous evil and a cancerous sore.

    Is it a coincidence that the One God, by way of John, describes the effect of the first bowl to be an evil and grievous sore…falling as HAIL (terrorist attacks) mixed with blood on the beast and all those that worship its values? Could it be that the One God is using this to rub “self-freedom” in man’s face.

    This same FREEDOM confesses that it is right to worship ANY ‘god’…religious freedom.

    This is the true darkness of FREEDOM… It does not serve “the other”…it serves itself first.

    President Obama has confessed that this freedom is not given …that it must be taken.

    …if it must be taken , then it is not given by the One Creator.

    And President Obama has confessed that this freedom is the way of his “common” god.

    But The One Creator God, He Who is GOOD, said that we are to worship Only Him, to worship Only GOOD, for there is no other way to life… and he said to Cain…”if you do good will you not be accepted?”

    The Lord Jesus Christ, Resurrected Son of the One Creator, said that we are to worship Only the Lord Your Creator and Him Alone to serve in obedience and love, love for Him First and Foremost and to serve, to DO GOOD…to DO GOOD…to DO GOOD to the fellowman.

    Very soon, the Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the One Creator, will return to rule the earth as the One King according to the Will of ‘I AM’ and NOT according to man’s first love for “his self-freedoms”, for his desire to justify, serve, and magnify oneself (XES).
