    Canada PM dubs Quebec mosque shooting a 'terrorist attack'

    Now, pay attention to the evolution.

    Six people died and eight were injured after gunmen opened fire at a Quebec City mosque, a shooting that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau condemned Monday as a "terrorist attack."

    Police spokeswoman Christine Coulombe told journalists that two suspects were arrested following the attack, that police were also treating as an act of terrorism.

    Trudeau said in a statement that "we condemn this terrorist attack on Muslims in a center of worship and refuge."

    "Muslim-Canadians are an important part of our national fabric, and these senseless acts have no place in our communities, city and country."

    According to witnesses interviewed on local television, two masked gunmen entered the cultural center around 7:15 pm (0015 GMT) on Sunday.

    The motive of the attack was not immediately clear. Police quickly set up in the mosque's vicinity.

    Coulombe said those killed were between ages 35 and 70.

    Police did not rule out the possibility of a third suspect who had fled the scene.

    "It is heart-wrenching to see such senseless violence," Trudeau said. "Diversity is our strength, and religious tolerance is a value that we, as Canadians, hold dear."

    OK, there's the story.


    - 'Barbaric violence' -

    Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard said in a series of Twitter posts that the government was "mobilized to ensure the security of the people of Quebec."

    "Quebec categorically rejects this barbaric violence," he wrote. "Solidarity with Quebec people of Muslim faith."

    Police stationed near the mosque told AFP that they had been preparing for this type of attack "because it's happening all over the world."

    "I don't understand why here -- it's a small mosque," said a man who was inside the center at the time of the attack. "It's not Montreal or Toronto."

    The mosque has already been the target of hate: a pig's head was left on the doorstep last June during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

    Other mosques in Canada have been targeted with racist graffiti in recent months.

    Alright, there's the faux "compassion" for the victims and assurances from bureaucrats that they'll protect people from this scourge. Just as soon as they finish their escargot and flambé. Plus it was necessary to add in unstated implications that it's right-wingers responsible by using a pig's head and racist graffiti as examples of past incidents. No evidence so far of who did it. No evidence it was related to anyone or anything. But it must be the right. Because who else would?

    Moving on.....

    - Policy of compassion -

    The attack comes as Canada has vowed to open its arms wide to Muslims and refugees after US President Donald Trump's controversial immigration ban Friday sparked travel chaos and outrage around the world.

    Canada will offer temporary residence permits to people stranded in the country as a result of Trump's order, the immigration ministry said Sunday.

    "Let me assure those who may be stranded in Canada that I will use my authority as minister to provide them with temporary residency if needed as we have done in the past," Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen said at a news conference.

    Trump has suspended the arrival of all refugees to the US for at least 120 days and barred entry for 90 days to people from seven Muslim-majority countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

    Hussen, who is of Somali origin, did not condemn the US measure but stressed that Canada would continue to pursue an immigration policy based on "compassion" while at the same time protecting the security of its citizens.

    "We welcome those fleeing persecution, terror and war," he said, echoing a welcoming Twitter post by Trudeau on Saturday.

    According to the latest Canadian census, from 2011, one out of five people in the country are foreign-born.

    Canada has welcomed more than 39,670 Syrian refugees between November 2015 and early January 2017, according to government figures.

    Now, Canada is a nice place who welcomes everybody. Especially now that Trump is hating on everybody who doesn't look like him.

    Although Trump might not have actually done this, it's obviously his fault for creating an atmosphere of hate on the right. Unlike Canadians who are compassionate and inclusive.

    That's what a "news" article turned into, a blast at Trump. In fact, that was the whole purpose of "reporting" it. That and maybe it might be noticed if they didn't at least mention it.

    But do you know what's missing? This:

    Names of the suspects heard over Quebec police radio! Bashir al-Taweed and Hassan Matti.... Two Syrian refugees

    I had to locate that from another source. Because it apparently isn't newsworthy when it's supposed to be all the fault of Trump and the right wing.

    And in response to all of the hate Trump and the right wing embody, and the reality that wasn't deemed to be news of who actually did it, nice guy Canada, who welcomes everybody, did this:

    Canada May Not Allow SINGLE Syrian Men to Seek Refuge

    CNN couldn't have done it better. Except to maybe have Don Lemon say that two Syrians shooting the place up is proof that Donald Trump is responsible and having a panel of bobblehead lefties screeching in agreement.

    Another source says they're of Moroccan origin. Which may be true.

    It's a fact that people can buy "official documents" to say they're anybody on earth in Syria. Since they're "official documents" we're supposed to accept them at face value. Which has been B.H. Soetoro's excuse for not doing anything about it. But any raghead can run over to Syria, get "official" papers saying he's a Christian minister or something, then come over and shoot people up.

    In this case, they probably went from Morocco to Syria, bought real fake papers saying they're Syrian then showed up in "compassionate" Canada to kill infidels. Which would explain the police radio thing. Even their names may be fake. But for sure they're jihadis who were enabled by corruption and stupid politicians who worry more about being sensitive than sensible.
