Canada's Jihad Denial
by Robert Spencer
Canada has experienced two murderous jihad terror attacks in the last three days, not long after the Islamic State called for such attacks – but the denial and obfuscation are as thick as ever.
On Monday, Ahmad Rouleau, a convert to Islam, hit two Canadian soldiers with his car, murdering Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent. Then he led police on a high-speed chase, during which he called 911 and explained that he was doing it all "in the name of Allah." The chase, and Rouleau's jihad, ended when he flipped his car and then, brandishing a knife, charged police, who shot him dead. One of Rouleau's close friends said: "It was a terrorist attack and Martin died like he wanted to. That's what happened….He did this because he wanted to reach paradise and assure paradise for his family. He wanted to be a martyr….The caliphate called all the Muslims on earth to fight. He listened to what they had to say and he did his part here."
