Faizal Khamisa's tweet sums up the terrifying effect of the Quebec City mosque attack.
Multiple gunmen stormed a mosque in Quebec city during evening prayers and six people are dead. This is my home. This is my place of birth. I have to look my children in the eyes on Monday morning when I tell them this happened. I have to tell them that people went to a mosque just a few hours away from where we live and were shot while worshiping peacefully.
The two terrorist attacks in October and the participation of over 130 Canadian citizens in the Islamic State's military campaign make it clear a growing number of our compatriots are edging towards violent extremism. Experts involved in national security have arrived at a consensus that the following traits are an indication that someone is becoming radicalized.
It's said that a majority of Muslims have been hijacked by a tiny percentage of Islamic extremists. But it's also true that many Muslims consider the incidents of September 11, 2001, to have been staged by the Bush administration, the CIA, Jews, etc.
The question arises as to why a majority of Muslims would assume that nothing bad could be delivered by Muslims? And why have many Muslims related all bad things to the United States, other western countries and Israel? Majority Muslims in the West should open their eyes and minds and get beyond the conspiracy theories.
