Dozens show up in Toronto to support the terrorist killed by Trump

On Saturday, January 4th, dozens of people showed up to honour dead terrorist Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis. The rally was organized by the Mahdi Youth Society to honour these “heroes of Islam.” They also named them “Shaheed,” which is Arabic for martyr.

A few things need to be pointed out here. Firstly, Qassem Soleimani was the commander of the Quds Force, the international arm of the IRGC (Revolutionary Guard). The Quds Force is listed as a terrorist organization in Canada (the US as well). 

Secondly, the IRGC is not part of the Iranian military. It is a separate paramilitary force of ideological hardliners. A good comparison would be the Nazi’s SS, therefore making Qassem Soleimani a modern-day Heinrich Himmler.

When the media describes Soleimani as a “revered military leader,” this is wrong on two fronts. First, he not a military leader. He is an IRGC commander. Secondly, he is a cowardly terrorist, not some brave general.

This begs the questions that a lot of Canadians will be asking: how is this allowed? The answer is likely that the Canadian government has a high tolerance for radical Islam.

If there was any level of government or our security forces that still take terrorism seriously, they should immediately list the Mahdi Youth Society as an extremist organization, so that the RCMP pay a visit to everyone who showed public support for the two terrorists. I doubt any of this will happen.

Instead, the world will look on as Canadians honour Qassem Solemani as a “hero of Islam,” even though he has the blood of tens of thousands of Muslims on his hands, not to mention the lives of many American soldiers. 

The butcher of Aleppo is called Shaheed/martyr for the cause of the Quds Force. The same Quds Force’s whose official position on Canada is that it must be destroyed. Radical Islam, indeed.
