When I wrote about the thwarted terrorist attack in Toronto, Canada earlier this month, I included a photo of the wives of the suspects, who were heavily veiled. I questioned myself, Was I giving in to stereotypes with that photo? Was this a cheap shot? Just because a Muslim woman wears a veil of course doesn't mean that she supports jihadi activity.
As it turns out, I needn't have worried, these women certainly were supportive of Islamic jihad. One even tried to include a clause in a prenuptial agreement to divorce her husband if he refused to go on jihad. Read the gory details about what some of these women were saying on chat boards. There's a deep hatred for Canada ("that filthy country"), the Jews ("May Allah curse the jews"), and American soldiers ("THIS is the filth of the earth, the uncivilised destroyer of humanity"). This hatred of the West really is in our midst, and some of these folks mean us great harm.
