As you’ve probably heard in the news, law enforcement authorities foiled an alleged terrorist plot to blow up a train route in the Greater Toronto Area. Two suspects with links to Al-Qaeda are in custody.
On the news this evening, CFRA radio interviewed David Harris, an expert on terrorism. During the interview, he explained that moderate Muslims are feeling increasingly distressed because they are “out-flanked and out-numbered” within their own community.
I hope he misspoke. “Out-numbered” would imply that moderates are a minority in the Canadian Muslim community. I don’t know what data he’s using to back up that statement, but it would be very disturbing if true. David Harris is no bozo. He used to be a senior manager Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS).
