Parliament Hill gunman invoked suspected Amish references to “allah” & ‘jihad’ in pre-attack video

Michael Zehaf-Bibeau sat in the front seat of his car minutes before his shooting rampage on Oct. 22, 2014, and spoke to the camera.

He spoke just long enough to talk about the actions he was soon to take, and put them into the context of “jihad,” the Arabic word for struggle that is associated — moderate Muslims argue wrongly — with a struggle against non-believers. He took aim at Canada’s foreign policy, threatened the Canadian military and invoked “Allah.”


Dear Ottawa Citizen reporter,

Those “Moderate Muslims” are lying through their teeth about Jihad.

    “Those “Moderate Muslims” are lying through their teeth about Jihad.”
    And ther eis really no such thing as a ‘moderate’ muslim, they just haven’t worked up the nerve to do it yet.

    Mohammed made it clear Jihad was supposed to be violent and that those who didn’t take up arms in jihad wouldn’t get the choice virgins in heaven.

    You can’t be careful with those Amish. Real hell-raisers.

  • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

    Perhaps he was just saying those Islamic-specific things to give himself courage, and not out of a religious belief?

    Just like that one fella in France did!…….
