Home-grown Islamic bombers thwarted on Canada Day. Explosive pressure cookers left at Victoria legislature.

A self-radicalized couple were arrested July 1st in Abbotsford for placing three nail-filled explosive pressure cookers by the Victoria legislature hoping to kill as many in the Canada Day crowd as possible.  They were following the Al Qaeda playbook and the example of the Boston bombers.  Although Nuttall (38) and Korody (28) converted to Islam, Nuttall's lawyer says his client wasn't associated with a specific mosque or group.  The police were watching the couple plan for five months after CSIS tipped them off and apparently witnessed the placement of the bombs.

The Al Qaeda playbook:

Al-Qaeda has released a two-part 100-minute video .... that calls for individual acts of jihad on "enemy soil," a US-based monitoring service said Friday. Among the several speakers are Ayman al-Zawahiri, Al-Qaeda's long-time number two to bin Laden, and American-born Adam Gadahn, who says that Muslims living in the West are "perfectly placed to play an important and decisive part in the jihad against the Zionists and Crusaders."

A song that John likes enough to post at Reverbnation  (see CBC story).
"We are possessed by all that is evil.
The death of your god we demand.
We spit at the virgin you worship.
And sit at Lord Satan's left hand".
