      Why was this unlawful combatant not killed on the spot?
      Seriously when they get blown away then they might back off.

    Meanwhile the CBC is excited that Christian churches are flocking to support the peace loving muslims, at the mosque where the van incident occurred.

      The incident was outside a “muslim cultural centre” a lttle way down the road from the infamous mosque, but the media would use “at the mosque”. It makes for a better story.

    Guess what, it isn’t immediately described as a terror attack.
    “The man is suspected by police to have mental health issues.”
    Obviously this is completely different from the van attack on Seven Sisters Road, where police were able to recognize terrorism straight away.
