GUEST EDITORIAL CANADA LATEST TERROR TARGET by Sal Giarratani A gunman attacked Canada's parliament in Ottawa on Wednesday, October 22 while nearby Prime Minster Stephen Harper was speaking. Just before this attack, a Canadian soldier, on guard at the National War Memorial, was fatally shot. The gunman reportedly was a recent convert to Radi- cal Islam. He was shot dead inside the building. Two days earlier, in Montreal, another apparent Radical Islamist tried to run down two Canadian soldiers with his car. This was not just an attack on a building or the kill- ing of a soldier; it was an attack on Canadian Democ- racy and on all of western civilization. It would appear that while ISIS fighters are running all over Iraq and Syria, building their Islamic State, the greatest danger to America, Canada and the civi- lized world are homegrown converts or as conserva- tive radio host Dennis Miller on his weekday show (WCRN Radio am830) called these converts, "recently hatched monsters," which they clearly are. Kudos goes out to Parliamentary Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers, who shot the guy and sent him to his virgins in the sky. This latest attack on civilization will not be the last. We must remain on guard. We have a terrible evil out there roaming the world. Like Ebola, we need to fight it at its source, but never forget that radicalized Ameri- cans or Canadians are already among us lurking in the shadows waiting for their moment. We need to secure our borders because without them, as Thomas Jefferson warned us over 238 years ago, we have no nation.
