“If you are not able to find an IED or a bullet, then single out the disbelieving American, Frenchman, or any of their allies. Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him. Do not lack. Do not be contemptible.

“Man in attack on Canadian Forces members in Toronto said ‘Allah’: Sources,” by Maryam Shah and Joe Warmington, Toronto Sun, March 14, 2016:
TORONTO – A brazen knife attack that sent two Canadian soldiers to hospital was disturbing enough, but police sources say it was the attacker uttering the word “Allah” that prompted Toronto Police to call in terror experts.
Chief Mark Saunders told reporters outside of the federal building at 4900 Yonge St., north of Sheppard Ave., Monday that the male suspect used “certain comments” that were as concerning as the violent attack.
He did not elaborate, but several police sources say witnesses told them “Allah” was used.
“Some heard him say, ‘Praise Allah’ and others heard ‘Allah’ or ‘Aly,’” a police source told the Sun. “Several heard the man use this terminology. It’s not something you take a chance on and this is why the call was made to the police agencies who handle terror issues.”
The RCMP, CSIS and OPP are now involved in the investigation.
After being subdued and restrained by at least six Canadian Forces members on duty at the Joseph Shepard Building, the unidentified man was taken into custody but has yet to be charged. Police sources say investigators are poring through details of his background.
“He appears to be of Middle Eastern decent and was presenting himself as if he is Muslim, but it is so early in the investigation and all of that needs to be confirmed,” said a police source.
Saunders said a man armed with a knife entered the building around 3:30 p.m. and injured a Forces member. Other employees in uniform subdued the man, but a second Forces member was injured in the process.
The injuries to the two male victims are not life-threatening. The suspect was sent to hospital for medical clearance, Saunders added….
