Can't Happen Here?

Source: newsbeat
A group of young Toronto men were planning to harbour two Americans accused of terrorist activity and protect them by setting up an armed "Chechnya style resistance" in northern Ontario against law enforcement officials, a police informant who infiltrated the alleged local extremist cell said in a CBC news program.

Mubin Shaikh, a former army cadet and paid police mole, revealed last night on The Fifth Estate that he helped look for a safe house in Opasatika, Ont. for two Atlanta men who authorities say were planning a terrorist attack in the United States.

The U.S. Department of Justice claims that Syed Haris Ahmed and his friend Ehsanul Islam Sadequee, both from Georgia, spent a week in Toronto and met with the alleged members of the "Toronto 18." They have both been indicted on charges of providing material support to terrorists.

"They were going to come up here for refuge and what we were going to do was provide a safe house for them and we even scoped the area out, did a little recognizance," Mr. Shaikh said. The plan was to have a resistance -- a Chechnya-style resistance in northern Ontario in the bushes... to have guys up there, we would fortify ourselves and if they came looking for us, we were going to take them on. We looked at the road and were saying we're going to booby-trap this, we're going to have snipers over here. "It was planned out."
Captain Ed sez..."These homegrown cells represent the biggest domestic threat for both nations."

A reminder from Spain...
Spain's Muslims have been long respectful towards civil and ecclesiastical authorities, but as numbers have grown they have turned to more radical leaders. An alliance of Spanish converts, pro-Moroccan and pro-Saudi leaders took control of one of Spain's two main Islamic federations last year. Half of the new leaders are imams from Saudi-funded mosques in Madrid and Fuengirola.
Can't happen here? Why not?
