      If they ever hit a hockey arena in Canada they are going to be so screwed.

        I’d like to think that was the case, but even 9/11 was not enough.
        After killing thousands of Canadians the CBC and Justin Trudeau would be blaming capitalism, American Imperialism, lack of social funding, …anything other than Islam.

          They can try to blame everything else.
          Hockey fans are realists.
          Yes, even Maple Leafs fans.

          I agree; I wonder sometimes just how high the casualty rate has to be before world leaders finally get it.

    Blow up Merkel? Aren’t they trying to kill the golden goose?

      It was a plot to justify her backpedaling ‘open doors’ because she’s more useful to them in office than on a lamp post.

      It’s the old joke about the Marxist revolutionaries sitting around smoking dope when one of them suddenly asks, “Hey, after we overthrow the government, who’s going to sign our unemployment cheques?” I don’t think jihadists are capable of that level of forethought, though.

    Add in the missisaigua attack and it looks like onama is wrong about isis contained.

      Do we have any evidence the vest was explosive? last I heard the police said it wasn’t.

      • Exile1981

        police are saying it was a vest filled with a material hust like an explosive. Another source is saying the explosive was made with the wrong kind of fertillizer so would not have exploded.

        Good luck getting the truth from the Police.

        Right after the Toronto-18 young muslim quran-reading mosque-going mekkah-praying male followers of islam were arrested , we saw Chief Blair hold a press conference in an islamic Centre top assure us that islam had being muslim had NOTHING to do with the terrorism plot.
        Chief Blair must also think that the ones now in Prison for the terrorism plot that demand Halal meals, prayer rugs , a Quran , access to an Imam and an Arrow pointing to mekkah have NOTHING to do with islam, mekkah or halal meals .

        We just saw the Courts finish up with 5 dead Muslim women that were honour killed over not wearing the quran while the Police and CBC called it Domestic Violence with no link to islam or sharia law.

        It’s really sad that the Police now fear riots and terrorism
        by muslims if they offend them because they are perceived as predisposed to violence and killing for allah .
        The Police just approved the Hijab for the Uniform to meet the Diversity quota for jew-hating pro-sharia homophobic muslim women which will be just great for the next women about to be killed via sharia law and she calls 9-1-1 to see a pro-sharia Cop show up and tell her ” shut you filthy dog and wear the hijab or I’ll kill you for offending allah” .

          *sigh*….Thanks though.

  • Kathy Prendergast

    Just showing Germany how grateful they are.

    A bomb found in Germany. What’s new is that it’s not one of the RAF’s.

  • Gary

    Those damn Amish , at it again and they are smart to change their name to Ahmed, Siad , Omar and Muhammad to blend in and go undetected by the police that profile them .
