    Wow even the Toronto Star & Crescent is covering this attack.

    Today in the Star:
    Saturday’s golf club/knife swinging Muslima is relegated to the GTA section and the article makes no mention of her pledge of allegiance to the leader of ISIL (only that she pledged loyalty to the “True Believers”. Article is pretty well sanitized to prevent “Islamofauxbia”.

    News talk 1010’s (I’m still in the closet) morning man John Moore says “Toronto’s doin’ OK if the only terrorism we face is a woman swinging a golf club” in a Crappy Tire store.

    Op Ed by the Star’s resident Islam apologist (now that Haroon is gone) – complains “Why do all Mo’s have to apologize for the actions of their fringe community – Jews aren’t asked to apologize for actions in “the Occupied Territories”.

    Front page news that your cat may be a finicky eater because of “Whisker Fatigue”:
    Yup only the Star and Crescent could feel this is more news worthy than a woman attempting to stab customers in a Toronto Store and pledging allegiance to ISIL.

    It must be conceded that ISIS are equal opportunity murderers: Yazidis. Christians, Jews, infidels of all flavors, apostates, any not sufficiently pious Sunni, Shiites – we kill them all. Allah is no doubt well pleased.

    Admiral Akbar!

    This could be bigger and bloodier than initial reports are indicating. Also, I would agree that sunni Muslims murdering shiite Muslims is not that big a thing, as to losing any sleep over. We need more of this.

  • This won’t end well.

    No teddy bears in Tehran.
