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.
