Just over a week ago, President Trump announced a temporary ban on travel to the USA by nationals of seven Muslim-majority countries. The ban was decried immediately by all right-minded progressive thinkers. One of the most vociferous decriers was Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. A week ago he got up on his hind feet to declare that the ban and its author were evil, all Muslims are wonderful peace-loving people, and any of them who were turned away from the USA would be more than welcome in Canada.
Even as Hairboy was speaking, two (2) people burst into the Islamic Centre (mosque) in the Sainte-Foy district of Québec City and opened fire on worshippers caught with their bums in the air. A shout of "Allahu akbar!" was heard. Six followers of the Prophet were killed and several more (numbers vary) wounded. Québec City cops immediately arrested two "suspects". One was Alexandre Bissonnette, a French-speaking Canadian. The other was Mohamed Belkadir, a "Muslim Canadian" said to be "of Moroccan origin".
After a night in police custody, M Belkadir was declared to be No Longer A Suspect, and released. Inspector Clouseau called him a "witness", not a suspect. M Trudeau chastised Fox News for describing him as a "Moroccan". The "witness" said police treated him very nicely.
That's the processed cheese version of a story which becomes more complex the more you think about it. What, Walt wonders, is the sharp cheddar version? What really happened there? The Velveeta version leaves unanswered these very good questions:
- What kind of "witness" is Mohamed Belkadir? Do they mean he was just an innocent bystander? Or is he now a Crown witness? (That's the Canuck term for someone who has turned "state's evidence".)
- How come other witnesses said there were two attackers, but the police now say there was only one?
- How come Alexandre Bissonnette has been charged with six counts of murder, five counts of attempted murder, but none (0) of terrorism or anything like that?
- Why did the reports of someone shouting "Allahu akbar!" disappear from the stories in the lamestream media?
I could go on, but will leave it to The Rebel's Gavin McInnes to propound what is certain to be dismissed as a conspiracy theory. Is it possible, he asks, that M Belkadir got a plea deal from the authorities? Why would such be offered? For reasons of political correctness, and to spare the Liberal governments of Canada and Québec the embarrassment of having to admit that the country has a Muslim problem. Have a listen.
