  1. While Canadians die in Afghanistan, politicians and "activists" on Al-Qaeda's payroll continue to promote the insane failed policies of mass immigration to our shores. Mass immigration remains Radical Islam's primary weapon for infiltrating Western nations until they have a critical mass of supporters. Why is this rarely discussed except on specialized websites like jihadwatch.org?
