In the latest propaganda released by the Islamic State — a 42-minute audio message distributed on social media that threatens Western audiences, noting Canada in particular — there was this truth amid all the bluster: “If you fight it, it becomes stronger and tougher. If you leave it alone, it grows and expands.” . . .

The National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) on Monday also condemned the terror group’s actions and messages as “repulsive” and “un-Islamic.”

“The NCCM once again joins Muslims across Canada and around the world in reaffirming its categorical condemnation of violent extremism and terrorism of any kind. Nothing can justify such actions.”
