Reports come as questions swirl around statement allegedly released by Faisal Hussain’s family.
While much of the establishment media in Canada continues to push the message contained in an increasingly-questioned statement allegedly put out by Faisal Hussain’s family, there are growing reports about Hussain’s potential links to the ideology of Islamist terrorism.
Yesterday, highly-respected Toronto Sun reporter Joe Warmington reported the following:
“Meanwhile, my law-enforcement sources confirm investigators are looking at every avenue — including a potential jihadi-inspired mission.
Files being reviewed by police include concern Hussain expressed “support” for a website that was seen as “pro-ISIL,” says a law enforcement source.
Sources say police in Toronto and CSIS officials in Ottawa, as well as the RCMP, are looking into his past, which sources say include his residence in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Hussain apparently had been spoken to by authorities about his online activities. Sources say Toronto Police, the OPP and the RCMP have all had an interest in the now-deceased shooter.”
Now, that reporting is now being backed up by CBS News, who noted an apparent contradiction between what Ralph Goodale is saying about Faisal Hussain and ‘national security’ (terrorism):
“At this stage, based on the state of the investigation, which is led by the Toronto police service, there is no connection between that individual and national security,” Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said.
But a law enforcement source told CBS News that Faisal Hussain visited Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) websites and may have expressed support for the terrorist group. They were looking into whether Hussain may have lived at one time in Afghanistan and possibly Pakistan, the source said. There is no indication that Hussain was directed by ISIS to carry out the attack.”
As we can see, this is very different from what much of the establishment media and the Trudeau government (basically the same thing) are saying. They sought to completely ignore any discussion of Islamist terrorism, and focus immediately on ‘guns’ and ‘mental health.’
That attempt to direct the narrative, including the fact that – as reported by Anthony Furey – “The man who has presented himself as the point of contact for the family of Faisal Hussain is a professional activist who has reportedly committed himself to “framing a new narrative of Muslims in Canada” and creating a “national political movement,” makes it increasingly appear that there has been a coordinated effort to suppress and distract from any mention of the radical Islamist ideology.
Of course, if we don’t get to the possible ideology behind the Toronto mass shooting, we won’t be able to take steps to stop such horrendous violence in the future. Avoiding reality and succumbing to political correctness will only put all of us at further risk from terrorism and hatred, and makes our country less safe.
