[2 UPDATES] BUT IS HE A MUSLIM? (YES, of course he is) Terrorist arrested after knife attack at Canadian Forces recruiting office

saunders.jpg.size.xxlarge.promoPolice say a 27-year-old man has been arrested after walking into a Canadian Forces recruiting office armed with a knife and allegedly stabbing two Forces members in an incident that is being investigated for possible (Muslim?) terrorist activity.

UPDATE 1! A brazen knife attack that sent two Canadian soldiers to hospital was disturbing enough, but police sources say it was the attacker uttering the word “Allah” that prompted Toronto Police to call in terror experts. “Some heard him say, ‘Praise Allah’ and others heard ‘Allah.’ a police source told the Sun. “Several heard the man use this terminology. It’s not something you take a chance on and this is why the call was made to the police agencies who handle terror issues.” SOURCE

UPDATE 2!  Ayanle Hassan Ali, (Montreal-born but likely a Somali Muslim) accused of stabbing at Canadian Forces centre, facing 9 charges. According to Toronto police Chief Mark Saunders, Ali said, “Allah told me to do this, Allah told me to come here and kill people,” during the attack.


  • Three charges of attempted murder.
  • Two charges of aggravated assault.
  • Three charges of assault with a weapon.
  • One count of carrying a weapon dangerous to the public.


CNS News (h/t Richard S)  Toronto police are looking into whether a double stabbing at a military recruitment center might be terror related. Police Chief Mark Saunders said a man walked into the center in the northern part of Toronto around 3:30 p.m. Monday, pulled out a knife and attacked a uniformed Canadian Forces member.

Saunders said others were able to take down the suspect but a second Canadian Forces member was stabbed in the process. The injuries are not believed to be life-threatening. He said the suspect made unspecified comments that led police to look into a possible terror connection. (Like Allahu Akbar?)

“Certain comments were made by this gentleman (“gentleman” – seriously?) while he was held in custody before the police arrived which has caused some concern. This has caused us to look at the motive beyond the attack,” Saunders said. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Canada’s intelligence service have also been contacted.

In 2014 a MUSLIM terrorist killed a Canadian soldier at the war memorial in Ottawa and then stormed Parliament before being killed. The attack came two days after a man described as an “ISIS-inspired Muslim terrorist” ran over two soldiers in a parking lot in Quebec, killing one and injuring the other before being shot to death by police.
