In Canada, we like to think we are largely insusceptible to such radicalism, or to believe that it is somehow random and unpredictable, but ample evidence exists to show this is a naïve and dangerous misconception.

That was one of the key points Faisal Khan Suri, president of the Alberta Muslim Public Affairs Council, was trying to make in testimony to Parliament's justice committee in Ottawa last week when he was subjected to an embarrassing tirade from a fellow Albertan — Michael Cooper, the Conservative MP from St. Albert-Edmonton.

Cooper's outburst, in which he went after the Muslim witness by reading into the record a passage from the "manifesto" of the Christchurch mosque shooter Brenton Tarrant, was about as disrespectful as it gets.
