SCARY CANADIAN SLEEPER CELL JIHADISTS
– ARE THEY STILL IN TRAINING?

Is Obama Bin Laffin still on earth with us here?
Or did US bombs send him 72 virgins back in the year?
Our very own Canadian homegrown sleeper cell youth
Planned to blow up Toronto and that was uncouth!

Because of our kids the US closed off our border?
Now one must have ID of a perfect administrative order!
You now need a passport to fly in the American sky!
This is a requirement for each Canadian girl and guy

Do Canadian kids train in Beirut or in Islamabad Bazaars?
Our Canadian Jihadists – do we know where they are?
They study terrorist tactics in Pakistanis Madrasa’s
Flying home to Canada with plans to kick infidel asses?

Back to Toronto and their mosque’s protective sleeper cell,
Do they continue their planning to blow infidels to hell?
They said that they would target our own CN tower
Do Canadian Moslem Terrorist Kids have that kind of power?

One of our Canadian kids lives in a Cuban USA cell
For killing a medic? So the witnesses tell?
Canadian Moslems fund Lawyers for his imminent release?
Will he come back home to Canada and then live in peace?

NEW JIHADISTS MORE FRIGHTENING

Expert says the devolution of al-Qaeda Central has spawned self-recruited wannabe radicals

OTTAWA — Al-Qaeda as we know it is dead, replaced by a leaderless generation of ever-younger homegrown jihadists whose venomous beliefs could poison the movement from within, says a leading al-Qaeda scholar.

Marc Sageman, a Harvard-trained medical doctor and Central Intelligence Agency officer turned forensic psychiatrist and noted al-Qaeda researcher, rejects conventional thinking that “al-Qaeda Central” — Osama bin Laden and an estimated 200 high command and hard-core followers holed up in northwest Pakistan — is resurgent.

“Those days are long over, but the social movement they inspired is as strong and dangerous as ever, “he writes in the current issue of Foreign Policy, encapsulating his new book, Leaderless Jihad: Terror Networks in the Twenty-First Century. A “third wave” of self-recruited “wannabe” radicals, many from middle-class secular families, now forms the core of a dispersed movement, globally connected through Islamist Web sites that offer a semblance of unity and purpose.

The devolution of al-Qaeda Central has been noted by others.

Sageman, however, says the wannabe movement that has taken its place is inherently self-limiting, since by their very nature, the disconnected groups have no unified goals, strategies or a leader.
If the movement’s appeal to its young, core membership Muslims diminishes, the threat will recede as well, and it may eventually kill itself off with its own increasingly toxic, bloodthirsty message that even many radicals won’t embrace.

The alleged “Toronto 18” terror cell, young men and youths charged with plotting to bomb Toronto landmarks and storm the Parliament Buildings, is a prime example of the new third wave, says Sageman, who holds a doctorate in sociology.

“The individuals we should fear most haven’t been trained in terrorist camps, and they don’t answer to Osama bin Laden or Ayman AL Zawahiri. They often do not even adhere to the most austere and dogmatic tenets of radical Islam.

“They are young people seeking thrills and a sense of significance and belonging in their lives. And their lack of structure and organizing principles makes them even more terrifying and volatile than their terrorist forebears.”

The ease with which they are able to translate their frustrations into acts of terrorism, often on the back of professed solidarity with terrorists halfway around the world whom they have never met, is especially frightening, he writes.

“They seek to belong to a movement larger than themselves, and their violent actions and plans are hatched locally, with advice from others on the web. Their mode of communication also suggests that they will increasingly evade detection.”

As a CIA case officer who ran spies in Afghanistan in the late 1980s, Sageman met many of the Soviet – fighting mujahedeen who later formed al-Qaeda. After 9/11, he collected biographical material on about 150 Islamic radicals to write his influential first book Understanding Terror Networks.

After analyzing hundreds of additional biographies, he wrote the just-released Leaderless Jihad.
He found a process of radicalization that commonly begins with a sense of moral outrage at the killings of Muslims, whether it be in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Chechnya, Kashmir, the Palestinian intifada or Iraq, as well as the humiliations of Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

“Feeling marginalized is, of course, no simple springboard to violence. Many people feel they don’t belong but don’t aspire to wage violent jihad. What transforms a very small number to become terrorists is mobilization by networks.”

Former face-to-face groups that once acted as an echo chamber, amplifying grievances, intensifying bonds to each other, have been largely replaced by forums of online radicalization, “which promote the image of the terrorist hero, link users to the online social movement, give them guidance, and instruct them in tactics.”
