"Prime Minister Stephen Harper never tires of telling Canadians that we are at war with the Islamic State."Whoever wrote this piece of nonsense is doing so either from Neville Chamberlain's naive head-in-the-sand playbook or as anti-Harper political propaganda. Or both.
News flash, we ARE at war with the Islamic State. The Islamic State has declared war on Canada. Our CF-18's are bombing them. Our special forces are on the ground designating targets and shooting back at ISIS fighters in self defence.
"... recklessly conflates the two recent lone-wolf incidents in Canada with the Islamic State’s call for attacks on “non-believing countries.” ... no evidence that either attacker was connected to ISIS. ..."
Wrong. Police and CSIS investigators have shown that both Jihadi terrorists were inspired by ISIS videos and propaganda.
"If the Prime Minister has evidence that either attack was directly linked to ISIS, he should provide it ..."
No! With our own eyes and ears we've seen and heard what atrocities ISIS has committed and is threatening to commit. If the Globe has any evidence that ISIS is NOT a threat, then IT should provide it.
