Terrorists eye Canada: Report
Intelligence agencies say Hezbollah `sleeper cells' are poised to hit `Jewish targets' outside Mideast

Canada's leading Jewish group reacted calmly yesterday to a report that intelligence agencies in the United States and Canada fear Hezbollah is poised to attack "Jewish targets" somewhere outside the Middle East.
The ABC News report said Hezbollah had conducted surveillance on some Canadian Jewish sites.
The ABC News report said U.S. and Canadian intelligence agencies warn of signs Hezbollah, backed by Iran, is poised to mount a strike against "Jewish targets" outside the Middle East.
ABC said intelligence officials told the network that the group has activated suspected "sleeper cells" in Canada and operatives have been tracked moving outside the group's Lebanon base to Canada, Europe and Africa.
Officials say Hezbollah is seeking revenge for the February assassination of Hezbollah's military commander, Imad Mugniyah, killed by a car bomb in Syria. The group's leaders blamed Israel, but Israeli officials denied it.
Officials told ABC that suspected Hezbollah operatives have conducted recent surveillance on the Israeli embassy in Ottawa and on several synagogues in Toronto.
The veracity of these alleged threats remains to be seen unfortunately. We don't know how truthful these reports are until something happens and when it does people tend to die.
This report illustrates some of the negative consequences of mass immigration and a commitment to multiculturalism. How do Hezbollah operatives get into the country? How are they able to disappear into Canadian society? What community provides effective cover for their nefarious designs? Do Hezbollah operatives need to immigrate into Canada at all or are they able to recruit "homegrown" sympathizers and agents? You still think Muslim immigration is nothing to worry about?
As targets between warring factions are made difficult to attack in their respective homelands these people may look elsewhere to wage their war. If expatriate communities are providing funds and support to conflicting parties then they become legitimate targets in the eyes of their enemies. It is no surprise at all that Muslim terrorist groups seek to attack Israeli targets in foreign lands. It is easier to bomb the Israeli embassy in Ottawa than it is to destroy Israeli government buildings in Jerusalem. If Canada is a major fund raising base for one group then it becomes a matter of military strategy to cut off that funding and attack those targets on Canadian soil. If you think this is far fetched recall that a terrorist attack has already been successfully executed on Canadian soil: Air India Flight 182.
Mass immigration and multiculturalism may turn Canada into a battlefield.
