The BS peddlers are out in force:
Is our health system doing enough for those with mental problems that might erupt into violence? Could something more have been done for the 29-year-old man identified as the shooter? …
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 alleged shooter.
What law enforcement is saying is that the attack was planned, and Hussain was “well known to Toronto Police” for investigations into past crimes “involving weapons and violence.”
Mohammed Hashim is the “driving force” behind the Muslim Brotherhood-linked National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM). This ought to cast the family’s statement about Faisal Hussain being mentally ill into doubt, and reopen the possibility that this was a jihad attack that is being covered up by Canadian authorities, but the establishment media in Canada is likely to do whatever it can to shore up this sagging narrative.
‘Our hearts are in pieces for the victims’
@shanifanasser actually reported yesterday that the Toronto Terrorist has a “million dollar smile”. They’re humanizing a murderer, and minimizing his victims. Here’s that smile that warmed the CBC’s hearts.
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.”
Shortly after the Ontario Special Investigations Unit revealed the identity of the Danforth shooter as 29-year-old Faisal Hussain, a news release was sent out to select media attributed to the “Hussain Family”.
The polished statement began with the family’s “deepest condolences to the families who are now suffering on account of our son’s horrific actions.” It then went on to explain that “our son had severe mental health challenges, struggling with psychosis and depression his entire life.”
It was provided by Mohammed Hashim, a full-time organizer for the Toronto & York Region Labour Council. Social media accounts belonging to Hashim show him heavily involved in supporting NDP candidates both federally and provincially in Ontario. He’s also described as a driving force behind the National Council of Canadian Muslims.
“His groundbreaking political advocacy, public relations and media work has been widely credited by insiders as framing a new narrative for Muslims in Canada,” says a bio of Hashim connected to an appearance he made at CanRoots 2016, a left-wing activist conference.
The bio continues: “His workshop ‘Progressive organizing in the Muslim communities’ will demonstrate how the GTA Muslim community mobilized in the previous federal election, and laid the groundwork to start building a national political movement.”
Another bio from the 2017 Muslim Awards of Excellence continues this description of Hashim as something of spin doctor, noting that “his talking points and media advocacy are changing how Muslims are seen in the Canadian identity.”…
NOT ALL JIHADISTS ARE PERFECTLY SANE
We’re too often offered a false binary: either mentally ill or a jihadist.
Canadian investigators were digging Tuesday into the life of the 29-year-old man who opened fire on restaurants and cafes in a popular Toronto neighborhood, seeking to explain what prompted the rampage that killed a 10-year-old girl and a young woman and wounded 13 others.
Investigators are 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….
The assailant’s family has said he suffered from psychosis and depression for years…
Then there’s the Iranian-born man who stabbed and injured 14 people on a bus in Germany. Police have refused to say what motivated him, and once again are suggesting he was just mentally ill.
