Monday Post

It's time...

ISIS hates Stephen Harper, blahblahblah:

In an audio recording distributed widely on social media Sunday, Islamic extremist group ISIS urged attacks on civilians in member countries of the U.S.-led coalition opposed to their violent spread through areas of Syria and Iraq. 

In the nearly 42-minute long meandering propaganda speech uploaded to Twitter, ISIS spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani encourages Muslims to kill “disbelievers” in countries, including Canada, currently supporting American and French-backed military action against the group in Iraq “in any manner.”

“If you can kill a disbelieving American or European — especially the spiteful and filthy French — or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State … kill him in any manner or way however it may be,” said Adnani.

In a statement released Sunday evening, Prime Minister Stephen Harper's spokesman condemned the recording and said Canada will continue to support efforts to defeat ISIS.

"ISIS represents a threat not just to stability in the Middle East, but to global security," said Jason MacDonald, the prime minister's director of communications.

"We will continue to work with allies to push back against this threat. Like our allies we will not be cowed by threats while innocent children, women, men and religious minorities live in fear of these terrorists."

The Canadian government has not said whether it views the recording as authentic, but the French government appeared to be treating it as authentic, as did SITE, a Washington based think tank that analyzes terrorist groups.

The Harper government has taken a hardline against ISIS. Last week Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird compared the fight against ISIS to the struggles against communism and fascism.

(Sidebar: that's nice. Has ISIS been vaporised yet?)

OECTA locals send at least $3,222 more to BC (according to their recent tweets), even though the strike is over. 

Ontario teachers, aren't you tired of having this mafia union take your money and use it this way?

For every Russian fighter jet that skirts Canadian air space, offer Ukraine some more weapons:

Two Russian Tupolev bombers got within 100 km of Canadian airspace in the Arctic northwest at about 1:30 a.m. Pacific Time on Thursday morning. They were met by Canadian CF-18 fighter jets, which had scrambled out of Inuvik, N.W.T.

After a period of time, the Russians changed their course and headed home without further incident.
Does Putin know what flag would look good at a NATO summit? Ukraine's.


Tokyo has rejected Pyongyang’s proposed initial report on its reinvestigation into its abductions of Japanese nationals, on the grounds that no fresh information is contained on 12 Japanese nationals officially recognized by Japan as having been abducted to North Korea, a source said Saturday.
