New ISIS Video Calls For More Attacks Against Canada
The Canadian Embassy in Cario is closed due to stepped up security concers.
An Egyptian security official says the Canadian government has asked that more security be added around the building. The nearby British Embassy is also closed, however, the American Embassy in the same area of Cario’s Garden City neighbourhood remains open.
The closure of the Canadian Embassy follows the release of a video urging Muslims to launch more lone wolf revenge attacks against Canadians for taking part in the attacks on ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
The 6-minute video includes footage of a man identified as John Maguire, a former University of Ottawa student who converted to Islam and became radicalized before leaving the country last year.
It`s reported that John Maguire purchased a one way ticket to Syria in August.
The video is produced by Aal-l’tisaam Media Foundation and spread through Twitter and jihadi forums on Sunday.
The Public Safety Minister has responded to the claims saying, “The country will remain vigilant against ISIL attacks.”
Watch the video and decide for yourself: Should this worry the average Canadian? Is this just the ravings of a madman? Do you think anybody with similar thoughts will actually follow Maguire’s call to action?
