Terrorist Attack in Toronto

Continuing coverage at Blazing Cat Fur.

The white van struck eight to 10 people near Yonge Yonge Street and Finch Avenue just before 1:30 p.m., police said. The van then fled the scene, CBC reported.

Multiple pedestrians struck by van in Toronto

Numerous pedestrians have been struck by a white van on Yonge St. near Finch Ave., Toronto Police say.

Police say “multiple” pedestrians were hit just before 1:30 p.m. Monday, though they initially reported 8-10.

I only have a few things to add. There was a posting last week from the Islamic State of Losers asking for attacks, any attack in "The West. As well as some statements today advertising an upcoming message, from who we're not sure. Anyway the Jihadis are active at the moment.

The MO is exactly that if the Islamic State of Losers. To these people tolerance, the Canadian are nothing if not very tolerant, doesn't buy you anything except the next push to take more.

There is a suspect at Blazing Car Fur, we'll update this thread later. Remember a nut doesn't necessarily have to be IS connected to be influenced by IS or other terrorist propaganda to act.

We stand with out Canadian friends against the outright and indiscriminate murders committed today.

Identity of the suspect confirmed,


More on this er um, person here at Heavy.com.

Although early reports indicated that the horrific crash might be terror related, government officials have said that Minassian is not associated with any organized terror group, and the suspect does not represent a larger threat to national security.

Bill Bratton, a former New York City police commissioner, had told MSNBC that his sources said the driver was known to police and the horrific crash was being considered a terrorist attack. But other sources are now saying the suspect was not associated with terror groups. ISIS channels have not promoted the attack or taken credit for it.

This is probably one of the instances that makes them say known to law enforcement.
Jonathan Dienst of NBC News reported that Minassian had allegedly researched and chatted online about the Isla Vista killings in California in 2014. The Isla Vista massacre occurred when 22-year-old Elliot Rodger killed six people and injured 14. He stabbed three men in his apartment, and then drove to a sorority house and shot three female students outside. Then Rodger drove to a deli and shot a male student, and then began driving through the city, shooting pedestrians and hitting some with his car. He was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
There's a lot more on him including that he created a Green Parking Phone Application for Toronto.

Holiday Inn: Hizb ut-Tahrir is Haram

There was no joy in Carol Stream.

Executive Director David Ibsen today released the following statement commending the InterContinental Hotels Group and the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites for prohibiting Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT), a group whose alumni include 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and former al-Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, to host its annual Khilafah Conference at the company’s location in Carol Stream, Illinois:

“We applaud the Holiday Inn Hotel and its parent company the InterContinental Hotels Group for refusing to accommodate HT – a group known internationally as a breeding ground for other extremist organizations. While every organization certainly has a right to free speech, commercial businesses have no obligation to allow their venues to be used as a way of propagating rhetoric intended to encourage extremism.”

Meanwhile in Berlin

Religion of something something.

here has been public outrage in Germany after video footage emerged of two Jewish men being violently assaulted in an apparent anti-Semitic attack in central Berlin.

The two men, who were both wearing kippah, traditional Jewish skullcaps, were insulted before being set upon and whipped with a belt in one of the city’s most fashionable neighbourhoods.

A group of three unidentified men can be heard on the video clearly shouting “Yahudi”, the Arabic word for Jew.

The two victims stood their ground and threatened to call the police before their main assailant was dragged away by his companions.

The incident was videoed by one of the victims, who was named by Israeli television as Adam Armoush, a 21-year-old Israeli citizen living in Berlin.

Assad Got Trolled

LOLs....

MMAN - A false alarm led to Syrian air defense missiles being fired overnight and no new attack on Syria took place, Syrian state media and a military commander said on Tuesday.

Syrian state TV reported overnight that anti-aircraft defenses had shot down missiles fired at an air base in the Homs area, and a media unit run by the Lebanese group Hezbollah said missiles had also targeted an air base near Damascus.

Syrian state news agency SANA cited a military source as saying a number of air defense missiles had been fired but no foreign attack had taken place.

Separately, a commander in the regional military alliance backing the government attributed the malfunction to "a joint electronic attack" by Israel and the United States targeting the Syrian radar system.

I wonder how much Putin will make replacing those missiles?

Who says we don't look our for our Russian pals...
