They cannot be that clueless...

Hat tip: Little Green Footballs

This is a scanned picture of page A3 of the Sunday, June 4 edition of the Toronto Star. The article is talking about the arrest of 17 terror suspects in Toronto. These suspects were caught with, among other things, enough ammonium nitrate fertilizer to make three Oklahoma City-sized bombs. Read the analysis paragraph under the headline:

'[The terrorist suspects] represent the broad strata of our community,' The [Royal Canadian Mounted Police] says. 'Some are students, some are employed, some are unemployed.' Aside from the fact that virtually all are young men, it's hard to find a common denominator. (my emphasis)

It's hard to find a common denominator? Well, perhaps I can be of assistance. I found a list of the names of the 12 adult suspects. Look at the names and see if you can spot a common denominator:

1. Fahim Ahmad, 21, Toronto;
2. Zakaria Amara, 20, Mississauga, Ont.;
3. Asad Ansari, 21, Mississauga;
4. Shareef Abdelhaleen, 30, Mississauga;
5. Qayyum Abdul Jamal, 43, Mississauga;
6. Mohammed Dirie, 22, Kingston, Ont.;
7. Yasim Abdi Mohamed, 24, Kingston;
8. Jahmaal James, 23, Toronto;
9. Amin Mohamed Durrani, 19, Toronto;
10. Steven Vikash Chand alias Abdul Shakur, 25, Toronto;
11. Ahmad Mustafa Ghany, 21, Mississauga;
12. Saad Khalid, 19, of Eclipse Avenue, Mississauga.

Do you see it? I know! Look at their residences; they are all from Canada! No, that can't be it. It must be something else. I know! They are all men! No wait, that was already mentioned. Hmm, I just can't find it.

In all seriousness, are the RCMP and the Toronto Star that dense, or are they so afraid of offending certain members of the community by pointing out the obvious, that they prefer to let people think they are that dense?

For being a "religion of peace", Islam sure intimidates people against speaking their mind, doesn't it? I am just glad that these 17 practitioners of the religion of peace were caught before they got their chance to carry out their allegedly planned attacks.

Good Day to You, Sir
