Suspect in Quebec Mosque Shooting Known for Far-Right Views

31 January 2017

According to reports, the suspect in the recent deadly shooting at a mosque in Quebec City was known online for his far-right views. On Sunday night, 27-year-old Alexandre Bissonnette walked into the Quebec Islamic Cultural Center during evening prayers and shot and killed six men. According to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Quebec, he currently faces six counts of first-degree murder and five attempted murder charges. According to the Canadian News Network CBC, Bissonnette followed several profiles that embrace right-wing ideologies on his Facebook page, including Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s far-right National Front party.

Alexandre Bissonnette is not only a fan of Marine Le Pen, but also of United States President Donald Trump.

The bloodbath of which Alexandre Bissonnette stands accused was called ‘terrorism‘ by the Canadian Prime Minister.

Now, if reports are correct, the government of Donald Trump will no longer consider mass murderers like Alexandre Bissonnette, Anders Breivik in Norway, or Dylann Roof in the USA, terrorists.

From daily The Independent in Britain today:

Donald Trump administration ‘wants to cut white supremacism from counter-extremism programme’

Plans reportedly underway to rename Countering Violent Extremism programme to ‘Countering Radical Islamic Extremism’

Lizzie Dearden

According to the European police organisation Europol, just 0.4% of terrorism in Europe was by Muslims in the years 2007-2009. Only 6% of terrorist attacks on U.S. soil from 1980 to 2005 were carried out by Islamic extremists. I don’t know about the most recent years, but very probably terrorism is still mostly non-Muslim, mainly extreme right. So, is Trump planning to let the majority of terrorists off the hook?

Donald Trump’s administration is reportedly pushing to erase neo-Nazis and white supremacists from the US government’s counter-extremism programme by moving it to focus exclusively on Islamist terrorism.

American officials briefed on the proposed changes told Reuters the Countering Violent Extremism (DVE) initiative could be renamed to “Countering Radical Islamic Extremism”.

If this report is true, then not only white supremacists will get off the hook; the word ‘violent’ would be scrapped as well. Which suggests that a Muslim who is not violent, but only speaks ‘radical’ *words* will NOT get off the hook. If that rule would apply not only to Muslims, then not only Alexandre Bissonnette, but also his inspirers like Ms Le Pen and President Trump might be prosecuted by the government. However, it looks like the Trump administration works according to the principle ‘One law for them, and quite another law for us’.

The reclassification would remove its work combating far-right attacks and mass shootings, such as the massacre of black churchgoers in Charleston, which are rarely classified as terrorism by American authorities.

“Violent extremist threats come from a range of groups and individuals, including domestic terrorists and homegrown violent extremists in the United States, as well as international terrorist groups like al-Qaeda and Isil (Isis),” reads the current description of CVE on the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) website.

But Mr Trump’s rhetoric has focused exclusively on the dangers of “radical Islam”, seeing him criticise Barack Obama for being “weak” on Isis.

The position sparked his executive order suspending the US refugee programme and immigration from seven predominantly Muslim “countries of concern”.

The President claimed the move would prevent “bad dudes” coming to the US, despite the fact that countries linked to previous terror attacks were not on the list, as well as warnings the “Muslim ban” would fuel propaganda efforts by Isis and other jihadi groups.

Proponents of the existing CVE programme fear any move to rebrand it would make it more difficult for the government to work with Muslim counter-extremism groups already unsettled by Mr Trump’s policies and divisive statements. …

Terrorism is defined in the US Code of Federal Regulations as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

The definition, used by the FBI and other American agencies, does not specify any groups and encapsulates all extremism from Islamism to anti-Semitism and neo-Nazism.

MI5, the UK’s domestic security agency, admits that there is “no agreed definition of terrorism internationally”, while the Terrorism Act 2000 defines it as violent threats or action “for the purposes of advancing a political, religious, racial or ideological cause”.

The DHS and White House did not respond to requests for comment.

Christian Picciolini began Life After Hate in 2009 to reach out to hate groups. Organization helps people leave the groups and acclimate to the wider world. Picciolini and his colleagues use their insider knowledge to provide support. It was given $400,000 in January by Barack Obama’s outgoing administration. That was out of a total of $10 million earmarked for anti-extremism groups. But the money is threatened by Donald Trump’s plans to redirect budgets. He wants to move all anti-extremism money to fight radical Islamists: here.

    PROTESTS against US President Donald Trump’s ban on Muslims continued on Tuesday night with calls for Prime Minister Theresa May to cancel an invitation to him to make a state visit to Britain.

    Protests included an anti-Trump rally in Bradford, West Yorkshire, organised by that Bradford Stand Up to Racism group and backed by the University and College Union.

    Around 25 per cent of the population of Bradford is of Asian origin.

    Bradford Stand Up to Racism’s Richard Purdie said: “We organised this protest in response to Trump’s Islamophobia and in protest against an organised state visit here later in spring.

    “What you see here today is that people are prepared to come out in foul weather to stand up to what they believe is right.”

    Bradford Labour councillor Richard Dunbar said: “I am very proud of this city for its diversity and acceptance of everyone.”

    NIGEL FARAGE defended Donald Trump in the European Parliament yesterday as a fellow MEP brandished a sign behind him declaring: “He’s lying to you.”

    The former Ukip leader accused EU leaders of “anti-Americanism” and said the US president was trying to protect his country from Islamist terrorists with his racist travel ban.

    Farage challenged MEPs in Brussels to invite Mr Trump to come and address them in an “open dialogue” or expose themselves to be “anti-democratic zealots.”

    As he spoke, however, Labour London MEP Seb Dance could be seen sitting behind him holding a notice that stated: “He’s lying to you.”

    Mr Farage, a long-time admirer of Mr Trump, commented after a series of senior figures, including EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, condemned the ban.
