Reading it over a second time I get that more. I misinterpreted her comment, which was comparing Canada vs the US differences in terms of perception. Makes more sense

There have been however, Many Canadians killed at the hands of islamic terrorist overseas in places like the Philippines, Indonesia and even next door in the US during 9/11. These Canadians should not be forgotten or swept under the rug because it didn't happen here.

The biggest terrorist attack in Canadian history was committed not by Muslims but by Sikh extremist. The air Indian bombing is considered the second worst incident of aviation terrorism in the world.

Victims yes, but I was curious why she claimed they were also perps of terrorist attacks here and that terrorist attacks “usually” involved Muslims one way or another. That seems like a false narrative.

I googled to find a list of terrorist attacks in Canada. All I could find was a list of 5 incidents compiled by CTV News in 2017. Slim pickings, except for the Quebec mosque murders and the one soldier killed on Parliament Hill. Another involved a woman swinging a golf club at people in a Canadian Tire store (no one killed). In the other two incidents, police shot the suspects before they could do any harm.

Yes, those were the only ones with Muslims as perpetrators that came to my mind.

Canadians are extremely forgiving people. It seems they only take into consideration Canadians killed on Canadian soil.
Lots of young people on this list.

And then there is this... Is it a case of not knowing or not wanting to say anything about it?

No, it was a case of discussing a post by an American who talked about attacks on American soil and who then compared that to terrorist attacks in Canada. The poster did not mention terrorist attacks on Americans outside of the U.S. I, in turn, didn’t mention terrorist attacks on Canadians outside of Canada.

And her post focused on Muslims.

I remember Air India very well. It was a huge story and I was actually alive when it happened.

I’m hoping for an announcement soon of Gaza refugees being evacuated to safety. AFAIK Egypt is only allowing aid trucks to go in to Gaza but I don’t think refugees have been able to leave. The death toll has been heartbreaking and will continue to be high unless these civilians can get to safety. Egypt needs to be pressured by the international community to allow safe passage, and from there a large number will be able to reach asylum in the West Bank and hopefully multiple countries including Canada to reduce the pressure on any individual country’s infrastructure. This isn’t a normal war type situation where there are other places within the country to go. The Gaza Strip is essentially an urban war zone right now. If downtown Montreal or Toronto was a warzone, I wouldn’t feel safe in Lasalle or Mimico. Canada can help.

They don't want Hamas terrorists destabilizing their country either. And those who.leave will never be allowed back into Gaza. Israel would be crazy to do that.
