Al Shabbab's Message to Cool Canucki Sofa Spuds--Stop Chillin' and Start 'Splodin'

From Stewart Bell's report in the NatPo (h/t MH):
TORONTO— The al-Qaeda-linked Al-Shabab released an audiotape Sunday it said was a message from a Somali-American suicide bomber who struck an African Union base in Mogadishu this weekend, killing 10.
The English-language message specifically called for terrorist attacks in Canada and said it was a duty for Muslims to fight for Islam, urging listeners not to “just sit around and be a couch potato and just chill all day.”
“My brothers and sisters, do jihad in America, do jihad in Canada, do jihad in England [and] anywhere in Europe, in Asia, in Africa, in China, in Australia – anywhere you find kuffar [infidels],” it says.
“Fight them and be firm against them.”
The message appears to be the latest attempt by Al-Shabab to incite Western youths. Canadian authorities are investigating as many as 20 Canadians who are suspected of having joined the Islamist extremist group...

Yeah, al-Shabab are a nasty bunch of Islamocritters, and a healthy, non-self-hating society would take their threats quite seriously, especially since we--that includes Canada, of course--admitted so many Somalis as "refugees" after the U. S. cut and ran from Somalia in 1994. But, of course, Canada will not--at least not publicly--acknowledge the seriousness of the threat (which is not a slur against Canadians, the U. S. would not do so either, not unless the threat came from a "lost white tribe" of Christian or Jewish Somalis, as in H. Rider Haggard's adventure novels).

For us to be able to live in peace again, we must re-learn to apply the Diana West/John Derbyshire Doctrine: blow the place up real good--until the rubble bounces--in retaliation against any terror attack on us, leave a client warlord in charge, and lie down in a dark room with soothing music at the first glimmer of a thought about "nation building."

When the inevitable terror attack happens, the focus will quickly become the need not to overreact, or not even to mention it except in the vaguest, most impersonal terms possible, as if it were a natural catastrophe of some sort . . . except, perhaps, to opine that Canadians had it coming, for the sin of being part of Western Civilization.
