The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RMCP) have confirmed that “Canadians” (actually Arabs living in that country) were involved in the January 2013 terrorist attack on an Algerian gas plant in which over 60 people were killed.
At the time, Algeria’s prime minister claimed that “two Canadians of Arab descent” were among the militants involved in the attack.
Al Qaeda-affiliated militants stormed the complex near the Libyan border on January 16, taking hundreds of people hostage. The resulting fight with the Algerian army ended with at least 37 hostages and 29 militants killed. At least 36 of the dead hostages were foreigners.
Algerian officials said the group planned the operation in Mali before crossing into Algeria from Libya. The attackers were later identified as nationals of eight countries, including Canada, but that has only now been verified by the RCMP.
“The RCMP confirms that Canadian human remains have been identified in Algeria,” Cpl. Laurence Trottier said. “As this is an ongoing investigation no further information will be given at this time.”
Canadian security agencies have warned that dozens of what they call “radicalized Canadians” have gone abroad to join Al Qaeda affiliates.
The Al-Qaeda-linked Mulathameen Brigade, which claimed the mass hostage-taking, threatened to carry out more attacks unless Western powers ended what it called an assault on Muslims in neighboring Mali.
Thus Canada has discovered the lesson already learned by France, Britain, and Germany: that Third World immigrants to those nations have not “become Canadian/French/British/German,” but instead have just remained Third Worlders living in the First World.
In addition to sowing racial discord, these Western nations have engaged in foreign policies guaranteed to incite the Muslim world and its numerous radical elements into acts of terror against its citizens.
