Reader comment on item: [Beslan Atrocity:] They're Terrorists - Not Activists

Submitted by Jeff Bercovitch (Canada), Sep 16, 2004 at 19:47


I could not phrase my observances any better than you.

Unfortunately here in nice Canada where the law of Sharia may become THE law for muslims, the media outlets, be they electronic or in print, ie:

- Montreal Gazette, re: Mike Boone
- Radio Station CFRA re: Michael Harris
- Globe and Mail

Never mentioned the Islamic roots of the Chechnyen child killers and often use militants and use such language as:

" the kidnappers took XX lives with them ", " on 9/11, 3,000 people lost their lives "

Unfortunately the typical Canadian really does not care and is more interested in hockey, beer, the color of their toenails ( female ), the size of their exhaust pipe
( male ).

In fact, I would even say that the typical Motrealer is more concerned about the rising cost of cigarettes and coffee than about the threat of militant Islam facing this country.
