Imam: Canada Suspects Didn't Seek Violence

Then what the heck were they seeking? Susan!? From Breitbart:

"I will say that they were steadfast, religious people. There's no doubt about it. But here we always preach peace and moderation," Qamrul Khanson, an imam at the one-room Al-Rahman Islamic Center for Islamic Education, said Sunday.

Khanson said at least three suspects regularly prayed at the Al-Rahman Islamic Center for Islamic Education.

"I have faith that they have done a thorough investigation," Khanson said of authorities. "But just the possession of ammonium nitrate doesn't prove that they have done anything wrong.

"We value our Canadian culture and we would never allow any links with the so-called Taliban or al-Qaida."
They had three tons of ammonium nitrate. Three tons. Three tons. Three effing tons! That's three times the amount used in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. Call my cynical if you wish, but I just don't think they were going to use it to open a farming commune.

Imam Khanson and the other religious leaders who are supporting these suspects need to realize that their refusal to admit their fellow Muslims could be involved in terrorism, and their failure to condemn acts of terrorism loudly and often, leaves them with no credibility in the eyes of their adopted countries whose cultures they claim to value.
