Islamist Wounds Two Canadian Soldiers in Quebec Terror Attack
(Daily Alert, Oct. 21, 2014)
Martin “Ahmad” Rouleau, 25, who ran down two Canadian soldiers in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu on Monday, one of whom was in critical condition, called 911 to say that he carried out his acts in the name of Allah.
After police gave chase, Rouleau lost control of his car, which overturned. He crawled out a window with a long knife and an eyewitness said the man charged at a woman police officer, before being shot and killed.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper said, “there are clear indications that the individual had become radicalized.” A neighbor said Rouleau had grown out his beard and started wearing a turban after converting to Islam a year ago.
A Twitter account under the name Ahmad Rouleau featured the banner of the Islamic State, which called on its followers to kill Canadians because of Ottawa’s role in the anti-ISIS military coalition.
