What can we learn from the terrorist attack in Ottawa

Reader comment on item: Terrorism Defies Definition

Dr. Pipes

Indeed it is becoming very difficult to define what is really terrorism.

I believe that we have enough smart and very proactive lawyers in this country that can go after the deep pockets of those that were behind the terrorist. Take the case of Muslim convert and terrorist responsible for the atrocity and murder in Ottawa, Canada. He had a past history of mental disease and drug addiction and might have spent some time in jail. This made him a target for the Tablighees (Muslim missionaries from India and Pakistan) and indeed he ended in a mosque in Vancouver. And it is the mosque where he must have learned what Islam is all about terrorism and all and I'm not a lawyer but this must be what vicarious liability is all about

I hope the family of the victim of this crime go after the Vancouver mosque and seize its assets and I'm certain the message will be loud and clear: If your mosque supports a terrorist then your assets could be seized

May be I'm naive but if the members of the Vancouver mosque realize that they might have to sell all its assets they will think twice about inviting new recruits to their mosque or even better they will inform the police about such characters
