    You must have also heard/read what occurred in front of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. A young man attacked and injured a police officer who was outside, guarding the Cathedral. The police is hospitalized; so is the perpetrator who was shot and is hospitalized.
    Know that the cry is, “Send them back home.”
    The British PM stated: “There should not be pockets of Muslims who do not share in the values of western society.”
    I could comment further on this and why these people think, in the US, Canada and Europe they and their religion are better than Christianity. I blame the politicians, most of whom today will not say “Merry Christmas”. They call our Christian holidays, a mere holiday, saying happy holiday. However, it is now Ramadan and they will wish the Muslims happy Ramadan.
    Pertaining to the immoral legislation and the goings-on in society, much more could be stated about that. I feel this terrorism is a punishment.

    Is this a copycat or not?
    A 32-year-old woman wearing ISIS headband, accused of armed assault at Canadian Tire store is facing multiple charges after allegedly pulling out a knife and swinging a golf club at employees of a Toronto store, pledged allegiance to the Islamic State in court.
    When asked her name during a court appearance on Tuesday, Rehab Dughmosh said through an interpreter: “ISIS – I pledge to the leader of the believers: Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.”
    The incident happened Saturday evening in the Canadian Tire in Cedarbrae Mall near Markham Road and Lawrence Avenue East.
    Police said shortly after 5 p.m., the woman walked into the store’s paint department brandishing a golf club. It’s alleged she swung the club at employees and a customer and threatened them.
    Staff and customers were able to restrain her, and when she reportedly pulled a large knife from under her clothes, an employee pried it from her hands.
    The employee had non-life-threatening injuries.

    Something happened all the way in London, yet you all are calling Skerrit name. This obsession is clearly very unhealthy. Do some of you even sleep at nights?

    Sick, and cowardly individuals! What was their motive? Apparently, they want the world to remember them as infamous radicals. We will call you cowards! COWARDS!

    Two out of the three terrorists are Moroccans. Can Skerrit please assure the people of Dominica that none of these terrorists were in possession of a Dominica passport? Would the Hon. Pm call his friend and Ambassador to Dominica of the Kingdom of Morocco, Mohamed Benjilany, who was seen in Dominica recently and have him to check to make sure our passports are safe

    017 Your comment is awaiting moderation
    From the moment I heard of the London terrorist attack I was very concerned mainly because I know our Passports are being sold world wide, like hot bread to crooks and crminals. Now attackers are revealed and we now know that so far one is from Morraco, I am trembling so much, especially as I am reminded of a blog I read recently about some 10,000 blank Passports that a top Morracan leader was linked to. Boy I so afraid

    During the European wars,over 3mil, personel from the so-called british empire went to fight giving their lives for England, Dominicans, part of the serenaded british west indian regiment gave their lives. Today their grate grand children have no access to anything England have to offer some may say that this have nothing to do with the mayhem presently, but the recipe is cooked in a beautiful pot of mountain chicken soup. What ever you do is recorded, and sooner or later, you will have to pay, both directly and indirectly, the spirits of our forefathers and mothers murdered in dominica, fighting for their FREEDOM, have found no rest to this day, and some of us continue to be house slaves in this present moment, still mentally shackled, of all the caribbean islands Dominica seems to be at the bottom of the ladder in terms of NEGRITUDE, it was not always like that, the Gaylords, Exile one and my favorite Mid-Nite Grovers was educating in song. We need to reeducate, YES MAN!. Bob.

    While Dominicans continue to write baseless comments, the statements out of England is that , it has been dawned on them maybe the wickedness of their past, and current foreign policy, has arrived on their door steps. Today, children of their former colonies, are no longer welcomed in England, while at the same time continuing to exploit the natural resources of the commonwealth states, check the history of DA under British rule. You may blame ISIS, but one mans terrorist, is another mans FREDOM fighter, Dominicans must stop their self righteousness and view the mayhem being perpetrated decades and centuries old by England and her allies. Knowing the past, is what’s going to propel a people forward, the more one knows, is more there is to know, don’t let your minds be captive. It saddens me to see the regression of true knowledge in Dominica, but again, there is a season for toot Bargai, if you don’t know , your children will continue to be in the dark, continuing the mistakes.Bob.

      Much ado about nothing. I suppose it gives some of you something to discuss and comment about.
      Pray to God and cease worrying. Some of you are unduly worrying. How interested are terrorists in the small islands? People visit the islands for peace and tranquility; not to wage war on the inhabitants.
      The government has to be careful who are allowed in the country.
      Those who got passports have money to dish out which is why they got them. Dominica is benefiting from the funds.
      I suppose you reside in Dominica. Be careful of your words. When you state the PM must go now. Have you considered how long you will live; the length of your days?
      Consider those of us who reside in those big countries. We are vulnerable and have good reasons to be concerned about terrorists’ attacks as we go about our business. Our neighbors could be one of them or a few.

    Sadly we to have a lot of ISIS type of behaviors​in Dominica and the authorities nothing to stop them. We think of the Christmas day firebombing of GON Emanuel when they knew knew Mr. & Mrs Emanuel we’re in the sleeping. We think of the airport equipment set on fire and although the pm said he knew who did it, to date no one has been brought to justice. On Feb. 6, 2017, Roseau was set on fire and although the PM told the world that their we’re also gunshots, to date no one has been brought to justice. We hearing of strange deaths and yet no one is brought to justice. We talk about IS IS? Based on what has become normal in DOMINICA recently I have every reason to believe we have ISIS in Dominica

      I think you have gone too far. Your very own people are committing the murders in this small country of Dominica. They are bad-minded people.

    It is sad that this type of evil activity is taking place in the world. Sad that some lost their lives and others are injured.
    My sympathy to the grieving family who lost loved ones.
    May those who are injured recover.
    I heard a Canadian woman was among the dead.
    The world is no longer a safe place as it were in those days. Some people waste their God-given allotted time in wickedness. What they sow they will reap two-fold Those who commit terrorism and are dead know this to their eternal regret.

  13. My little take
    June 4, 2017

    Oh how sad! I pray for speedy recovery for those in hospital and God’s strength to the families of all the victims. Sadly when such things happen I continue to live a frightened life until full investigation is complete and it is clear that such evil act was not carried out by any of the criminals Skerrit sold our Passport to.

    If every time that someone is radicalized; this person is a menace to the society.Nonetheless when the public report these individuals to the police; the police and the gov’t are not taking any steps to arrest these individuals so they are free to do as they wish. They cannot be arrested simply because they have not committed the act (in the name of human rights).Regrettably, it is too often too late, Lives are lost, people are seriously maimed and properties destroyed.The laws should be changed swiftly because it is necessary to serious decisions before it is too late.Many young people who went to fight with ISIS came back to England only to be sent to 2,3,4 or 5 years imprisonment.This should never happen because they will be soon out and the public is at risk.

      Similar in a big country. There are times they interrogate people and let them off saying they cannot prove anything against them. Then they re-offend and commit murder or more than one including terrorism. How often we hear/read about that.
      I just heard on a Toronto Radio Station, CBC that one of the terrorists was known to police. So far for one.
      They call them extremists. Now the G.B. Prime Minister said it is time they do something about them and take them seriously. How? These people are either born there or have become citizens; home-grown and brainwashed. The police cannot be everywhere at the same time.
      A few years ago Canada lowered the years to procure citizenship from five years to three years. I suppose it is still so.
      There are times government have themselves to blame.
      We have to pray to God for protection.

        The British police never want to take any responsibility …they said that they were never told about two of the terrorist in the last attack; this was a lie. The British one was flagged down by a doctor he attacked for his belief and the Italian was flagged down by the Italian police.Police officers should never be trusted.
