San Bernardino shooting raised President Barack Hussein Obama eyebrows because the culprits were a couple with a 6-month-old baby. When was the last time you read about a husband-wife tag-team going on a shooting spree, abandoning their baby? Syed Rizwan Farook and his Pakistani wife Tashfeen Malik did exactly that.


Initially, the focus was on Syed Rizwan Farook and people were struggling to find the answer as to why a Muslim-American could be radicalized to such level. Mr. Farook reportedly smashed his cellphones and took steps to delete computer files, although investigators have been able to retrieve photographs, including one image of a local high school.

Farook was perceived to be the mastermind in the attack hence his wife’s role was given a back seat. As the terrorism story unfolds, Tashfeen Malik, the Pakistani woman who killed 14 people with her husband had actually openly advocated violent jihad on her social media accounts before coming to the U.S. She didn’t hide it at all.


As American law enforcement officials discovered – but too late – Tashfeen Malik said she supported it (Jihad), and said she wanted to be a part of it. Had the U.S. authorities found the old messages when Malik applied last year for a K-1 fiancee visa to come to the U.S. with her husband (Syed Farook), she likely would not have been approved for entry.

But it’s water under the bridge now. Furthermore, immigration officials rarely check applicants’ social media posts for red flags. Heck, even within the Department of Homeland Security, they couldn’t agree if such background checks is appropriate. If that wasn’t bad enough, female applicants are generally subject to less scrutiny than male applicants.


Tashfeen Malik went through 3 separate screenings before being granted a green card. As in other classic example of fire fighting, people talk about K-1 visa program after the terrorism. People talk about Facebook and Twitter postings. People talk about making it harder to enter the United States if they have recently been in Iraq or Syria.

Donald Trump vs Barack Obama

Obama talks about expanding background checks without causing delays to his favourite program of importing refugees on an industrial scale. President wannabe Donald Trump talks about building the Great Wall of Mexico, as well as banning Muslims, temporary, from entering the country. But could there be a timebomb nobody cares or talks about?


Pakistani Tashfeen Malik took classes on the Quran for about a year until May 2014 at Al-Huda International School, 2-months before she moved to the U.S. and married a Pakistani-American man, Syed Rizwan Farook. Al-Huda was founded in 1994 in Islamabad by a Pakistani woman, Farhat Hashmi, and now has branches around the world, including in the U.S. and Canada.

Al-Huda Religious School

Could Al-Huda, the religious school for women, produce radical Islamist mentality the same way Tashfeen Malik had been transformed?  A branch in Toronto temporarily closed this week when CBC News reported that several young Canadian women who studied there tried to join Islamic State (IS) extremists in Syria.


If Saudi-funded Al-Huda is one of many sources that radicalize women, then America may be looking at the wrong place in its fight against jihadists. We’re talking about the world’s longest undefended border, the Canada-U.S. border. While the attention was on the Ontario branch of Al-Huda Elementary School, radical mosques are mushrooming in the country.

Such mosques with reported ties to terrorist organizations have flourished in and around Toronto as well as in Montreal. Even the Canada’s new prime minister, Justin Trudeau, have been reluctant to constrain or even criticize these groups, but defending them in the name of diversity and multiculturalism instead.


Trudeau administration may be too naive to realize it but he could be welcoming tons of Farook-Malik timebomb” as he warmly greeting the first of an estimated 25,000 Syrian refugees arriving between now and March 2016. So far, Canadian immigration officials said not a single applicant has been “rejected” yet.

“The Islamic State has repeatedly named Canada as a target; dozens of Canadian Muslims have gone to Syria to become terrorists. And yet Canada is rushing refugees through, far in excess of our capacity to properly vet them. We simply don’t have sufficient intelligence personnel, let alone those who function in Arabic.” – right-wing activist and lawyer Ezra Levant said.


Canada is indeed extremely vulnerable to extremism and terrorism due to its smaller population as compared to United States. One may argue that multiculturalism is the only shield protecting Canada from terror attacks. But thanks to Saudi Arabia’s free flow of petrodollars, Pakistanis wearing the burqas and the Arab clothes are a common sight due to radicalization.

Kids with Canada and Pakistan Flags

Here’s the problem – Canadians of Pakistani origin, for example, are forbidden from singing the Canadian national anthem because it’s “haram”. Turns out, mosques were giving sermons against loyalty to Canada. There are areas of the country starting to resemble tribal homelands, as if they’re building their own “Little Pakistan”, and soon, perhaps “Little Syria”.
