Meet The Jihad Generation

Remember the Pepsi Generation? In Western countries young radical Muslims are embracing a different way to be hip. The police in Canada have a special term for these politically active and energetic young Muslims. Meet the Jihad Generation.

Such home-grown terrorism is a growing concern, says security analyst John Thompson.

"The cops have a nickname for it - the jihad generation," says Mr. Thompson, president of the Mackenzie Institute, a Toronto think tank.

So what is this exciting and hip Jihad Generation up to? In Canada the Jihad Generation want to make a big bang.

Jack Hooper, deputy director of operations for the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, said the greatest security threat our country now faces comes from within — from homegrown, made-in-Canada terrorists. Now we know why.

On Friday, following the largest Canadian anti-terrorism investigation since 9/11, police arrested 12 adults (aged 19 to 43) and five minors, charging them with “terrorism-related offences” they said were “inspired by al-Qaida.” Chillingly, all are residents of Canada and most are Canadian citizens. Of the 12 men accused, six are from Mississauga, four Toronto and two from Kingston.

Authorities said they recovered three tonnes of ammonium nitrate — triple the amount used by a homegrown American terrorist in the 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City that killed 168. The intended targets? Police wouldn’t say. Speculation includes Parliament Hill, other government offices and the CN Tower.

These are not boring youth. They are ambitious. They aim to make names for themselves.

Rosie DiManno of the Toronto Star delivers very bad news to Canadians: Cowering while letting in large numbers of Muslims is not a successful formula for avoiding attacks by evil men. Who'da thunk it?

For everyone who thought Canada could cower in a corner of the planet, unnoticed and unthreatened by evil men — even when the most menacing of a very bad lot has twice referenced this country as a target for attack — take a good, hard look at what's been presented and what's being alleged.

Three tonnes of ammonium nitrate, thrice the amount used by Timothy McVeigh to demolish a government building in Oklahoma City. Cellphone detonators. Switches. Computer hard drive. A 9-mm pistol. Soldering gun. Camouflage gear.

And 17 males — born here or reared here, certainly settled here, some of them little more than children — formally remanded yesterday on terrorism-related charges.

This is all just the beauty of cultures mixing and intermingling But you'll always find those nay sayers who think that letting in large numbers of people from incompatible cultures is going to cause trouble.

Canada's shrinking native population has prompted the country to encourage robust immigration. Canada touts the relative harmony within its society, sometimes in contrast to tensions over immigration in the United States.

Public figures treat references to distinct ethnicities or religions as anathema; police statements on the arrests Friday did not use the word Muslim. But while Canada trumpets this diversity, the arrests supported the warnings of some that the growing ethnic communities can be a source of hidden passions and underground politics.

Canadian multicultural leftistists will surely be happy to learn that the Jihad Generation bombers are very multicultural, hailing from several diverse Muslim countries.

Information that has emerged about the men portrays them as typical of the Toronto metropolitan area, where more than 40 percent of the population is foreign-born, and many born here of immigrant parents. Those charged came from a variety of Muslim countries, including Somalia, Egypt and Pakistan.

The Jihad Generation obviously embraces globalism and multicultural theocracy.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and the Assistant Commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police say these terrorists are typical Canadians.

Little except that most of them appeared to be typical Canadian residents from a variety of Middle Eastern backgrounds, with loving families, who kept very much to themselves.

"Some are students, some are employed, some are unemployed," RCMP Assistant Commissioner Mike McDonell said Saturday. "They're all residents of Canada and for the most part, they're all citizens," he said.

"They represent the broad strata of our community."

The Jihad Generation of Canada represent a "broad strata" of Canadians. I think I'm out of date with my images of Canada. It doesn't appear to be like the MacKenzie brothers any more. Eh? Check out what the family members of the "broad strata" look like.

We haven't heard the last from the Canadian Jihad Generation. The Canadian Security Intelligence Service is watching hundreds of hostile Muslims.

CSIS admitted this week it couldn't track down many domestic terror suspects and warned the country faced an increasing threat from "home-grown terrorists" who had been assimilated into society.

Jack Hooper, deputy director of operations at the CSIS, said the service was trying to keep track of "350 high-level targets" as well as 50 to 60 organizations thought to be linked to groups such as al-Qaeda.

Canada isn't all alone with the Jihad hipness thing going on. Great Britain also has a Jihad Generation.

The terrorist threat facing Britain has developed into a "covert conspiracy" involving hundreds of men and women living ordinary lives in the nation's suburbs, security sources have revealed.

Unbeknown to their families and friends, they form a silent 1,200-strong "army" of terrorists. They are believed to be involved in at least 20 major plots that they hope will bring death and destruction to Britain

Disaffected by Western ways of living and inspired by Bin Laden's 9/11 attack young Muslims are becoming more devout. But we are not supposed to feel suspicious about it.

Mohammed Abdul Kahar, 23, and Abul Koyair, 20, the two brothers arrested after the dawn raid may, according to MI5, be typical of other young Asian men who have become disaffected with the Western way of life and have been radicalised by militant Islamists who support a global Jihad.

According to neighbours, the brothers underwent a transformation after the September 11 attacks on America in 2001, adopting beards and more traditional Muslim dress. "Lots of young Muslims these days are getting more religious, especially after 9/11," said one neighbour. "It's nothing to be suspicious about."

In response to a massive Muslim terrorist attack on non-Muslims lots of Muslims become more religious and we are not supposed to get suspicious about this reaction! A religion whose terrorists inspire greater faith isn't something we are supposed to react to?

Deportation is the solution. Lawrence Auster says the problem isn't so much the Muslims as it is our foolish willingness to let them into Western nations. Our first hurdle? We need to call Muslim terrorists Muslims.

John S Bolton said at June 6, 2006 1:59 AM:

Countries which accept moslem refugees do not do so in ignorance of the danger from these parasitical vectors of theocracy and atrocitocracy, and their children. Moslem refugees are selected, quite often, not in spite of, but ~because~ of, their troublemaking, intrigue tropism, and seditious tendencies,in the countries they are treacherously waved-in from.
In this case they are said to have wanted to blow up the parliament or counter-terrorist buildings in Canada.
Canadian officials, like their counterparts elsewhere, would rather let intrigues develop to this point, than miss a chance to exploit terror for the aggrandizement of their own power.
Immigration has become itself a terror offensive on the citizenry, wielded by officials in pursuit of greater power.
Officials who know what the're doing, not just going along with some pro-diversity propaganda, in order to get along, do indeed act deliberately, if not concertedly.

What strikes me about these Canadian borne Muslim terrorists is that their disillusionment, and inability to successfully assimilate to Western cultural norms seems to mirror the through-the-roof crime rate we see from the children of Hispanic immigrants in the US. We also see this disconnect playing out in France where it was the children of the Muslim immigrants who were doing the firebombings earlier this year.

Half Sigma said at June 6, 2006 11:50 AM:

What's worrisome is that there is a trend towards increasing radicalization of young Muslims living in the West. When will the trend stop? How much worse will it get?

Providence Sysadmin said at June 6, 2006 9:47 PM:

To my own surprise here-- since I've been a vigorous France-basher myself the past 7 years-- France has actually woken up on the Dhimmification and immigration issue, finally. Just recently, after the public rage over the Muslim riots in Paris, the politicians and elites-- unlike in the USA and Canada-- have finally listened to the anger of the people and passed one of the toughest immigration laws in the Western world. Further immigration from the Maghreb and North Africa is now blocked, illegals are promptly deported with few exceptions, legal immigrants who riot or commit crimes are summarily deported, chain migration is halted, and any new immigrants are brought in with a focus on other European and Western countries as sources, with employability in the French labor markey highly emphasized.

The new French law isn't perfect of course, but it's worlds better than the naive idiocy on immigration prevailing in the US and Canada, as well as in Australia and Britain to a lesser extent. France has actually introduced a common-sense law. The Netherlands has done the same, and Denmark, Germany and Austria have also introduced stringent laws themselves before the French, with the same idea-- keep the angry, unemployable Arabs and North Africans out, invite the Europeans, North Americans and European South Americans in.

It's funny, because I'm a computer systems administrator in the United States, and I've noticed over the past 4 years or so that a shocking number of my colleagues have been packing up, emigrating from the USA and going to Europe. Outsourcing as well as abuse of the H1 visa program, is basically just killing the US tech industry, and it's nuts to stay here anymore. I can't believe the shoddy way that US tech workers are treated-- as peons whose years of hard work and skills, not to mention educational loans, are dismissed in the face of dirt-cheap outsourcing or Indians brought in on the H-1 who do truly crappy work but which the companies are willing to overlook due to the cost-savings. In fact, in an old software company-- now defunct-- where I used to work, half the time I could swear I was correcting the royal screw-ups that the outsourcers in Hyderabad and the new Indian workers were constantly making, and could never seem to learn to overcome.

The biggest high-tech country in Europe is of course Germany, but there's also Finland (home of Nokia), Austria (just about any city there is a budding tech hub), as well as portions of Italy, the Netherlands and of course France, especially northeastern France. For a while I thought these countries had their own dopey immigration laws and were as naive as the US and Canada, but that's changed dramatically in the past year and a half. Considering the remarkable high-tech growth in Europe and their more sensible immigration laws, andcomparative reluctance to outsource, IMHO a US- or Canadian-trained high-tech worker has much better prospects in the budding tech industry in Europe than in the US or Canada, with all their idotic diversity mandates, affirmative action demands and continuing mass immigration. You will have to learn the language of course to work there-- IMHO every tech worker here should probably be signing up for some courses in German, or maybe Finnish, French or Italian if you're so inclined-- but that's actually a relatively minor hurdle when you start working.

France may have cracked down now, but its too late (if they want to keep their country mostly native French).. already their country is 10%+ North-African & Arab Muslim, and their population is much younger than the average so the real population distribution is disguised, and the Muslims birth-rate is 3x that of the native French.
Over 75% of the French prison population are Muslim North Africans.

Spain has an open door immigration policy at the moment and recently had an amnesty of 700,000 people, which is a lot compared to the Spanish population of 40 million or so, people within the EU are entitled to 'freedom of movement' so if one country has an irresponsible immigration policy it affects all of them.

G.W. Cracker said at June 7, 2006 9:55 AM:

"...Canada's shrinking native population..."

The First Nations (or for ignorant bigots like you "Indians") has been shrinking in population since the original genocide committed against them. It has had no effect on immigration one way or another.

If you are referring to white people say white people.

The “natives”are the first inhabitants of North America. It looks like you "stepped out of the box" and stuck it over your head, dumb cracker.

arch said at June 7, 2006 12:31 PM:

I enjoy how "G.W. Cracker" calls Parker a bigot and a "dumb cracker" at the same time. I suppose the "G.W." is supposed to offend us, seeing how we are the biggest Bush fans in the blogosphere or something.

White guilt + non-white arrogance = Good Times.

(Vicente) Fox Hound said at June 7, 2006 1:21 PM:

GW Cracker:

No matter how much truth is revealed about the so called "Native Americans," or as you Cannucks put it, "First Nations," modern science has begun to uncover the falsity of many of these so-called truths about the noble savages.



My question is when are the Indians packing up and going back to Siberia?

Randall Parker said at June 7, 2006 5:35 PM:

G.W. Cracker,

At least 4 waves of people came over the Bering Straits. Some of the earlier waves might have been wiped out by later waves. The bone remains from the US northwest which was fought over in court by supposed "natives" (by your definition of native) did not bear any resemblance to Amerinds as we know them today.

The evidence is stronger in the case of Australia. Multiple waves came in. Some waves got extremely marginalized and even wiped out by others. So are the people us dumb crackers call "Aborigines" really natives of Australia? Or are they later interlopers who practiced genocide?

I figure G.W. Cracker wants us to feel guilty while he feels superior. This is what the white status game is all about. Find ways to feel superior. Doesn't require being superior.

Bob Badour said at June 8, 2006 6:03 PM:

As a whitebread canadian of Algonquian descent, I would thank G.W. Cracker to mind his own fucking business and stop trying to speak for me. I am quite capable of speaking for myself.
