Calgary police knew of jihad recruitment for 8 years

They've just told the press about this, but 8 years is still an awful long time to take without making serious efforts to curb it:
Calgary police have been aware for more than eight years that young people are being recruited by Muslim extremist groups to fight in the Middle East, Chief Rick Hanson said Wednesday.

Hanson made the comments following an exclusive CBC News report last week about Salman Ashrafi, a young man born and raised in Calgary who was identified as a suicide bomber in Iraq by ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria), a splinter group of al-Qaeda.
But whom are they relying on to help stop these jihadists from going to the Islamic world to wage violence? Community members who may not be reliable:
"The greatest ally we have in this is members of the community who become aware of young people who seem to be disenfranchised and who may be gravitating towards groups that are recruiting."
I wouldn't count on them to provide enough information to stop them. Let's remember that taqqiya could play a decisive role in botching investigations.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
