Making Sense of Ottawa Shooting

October 22, 2014


Everything was calculated to exaggerate
the threat. Here's why.

If Bibeau was working for ISIS, 
and ISIS is Western-backed, 
then this indeed was a false flag. 

by Henry Makow Ph.D.

Because I am a Canadian, some readers have asked for my take on the attack Wednesday on two of Canada's national institutions.

First, an honor guard at the National War Monument, Cpl. Nathan Cirrilo, was shot and killed. Afterward the shooter, Michael Abdul Zehaf Bibeau, whose father is from Libya, was able to enter the Parliament Building where he fired off some rounds before being killed.

The fact that Bibeau was able to enter the Parliament Buildings with a rifle is highly suspicious. He ran in the main door pursued by RCMP. 


I see this incident in the context of what Albert Pike predicted in his famous letter to Mazzini. The Third World War would be between Zionists and Islam.

There is a need for all Westerners to feel like Israelis, under the constant threat of terror. This goes a long way toward meeting that demand.

In order to have a confrontation between Zionists and Islam, you need to build up an Islamic enemy. ISIS fills that role.

It was created by "Zionist" intelligence services: CIA, CSIS, Mossad, etc. (They can't demonize all Muslims because they would have to explain why they are importing so many.)

Then you have the Zionist-controlled nations -- the US, Canada, UK, France etc.-- declare war on ISIS. Thus, even though Canada had just extricated itself from Afghanistan, and never participated in Iraq, Stephen Harper is sending six jets to Iraq and 600 support staff to make sure they run.

In response, ISIS has warned of terror attacks, and right on schedule there have been two now. Two soldiers were hit by a car in Quebec on Monday. One died. 

ISIS apparently posted this image of Bibeau. (3.38) If he was indeed working for ISIS, and ISIS is Western-backed, then this indeed was a false flag.

As we all know by now, the mass media is a collaborator in present and future wars, including all false flag terror. 


What gets me is the exaggerated sense of danger and media hysteria Wednesday, as if the purpose was to just plain frighten Canadians.

Although the incident took place at 10 a.m., the whole downtown was in "lock down" until evening. They acted like there were another shooter on the loose when there was zero evidence of one. How hard is it to count the shooters? 

Why pretend there are more than one unless you want to exaggerate the event?

Members of Parliament, office workers etc were stuck inside all day for no reason. Children in the Parliamentary Daycare were stuck there until early evening. 

The hockey game between the Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs place 25 miles away was cancelled. How better make Canadians feel threatened than to take away their hockey?

Bibeau was killed by the Sargeant at Arms, Kevin Vickers, age 58. The old guy felled the shooter using his antiquated handgun. Where were the Tactical Squads and Swat Teams with their automatic weapons? 

Meanwhile the Members of Parliament cowered in their locked caucus rooms, while the nation's figurehead leaders were whisked away to safety. Stores were closed. Downtown office workers waited anxiously for news while other buildings were "evacuated." Everything was calculated to exaggerate the threat. 

In the evening, Prime Minister Netanyahu, I mean Harper went on TV and said Canada would not be intimated by the Islamists. The whole exercise seemed calculated to make Canadians feel threatened like Israelis are, and more committed to the Israeli cause, which Harper has said he would defend to the last Canadian.  I guess that war has begun.

Bibeau killed Cirillo?

Note: "Canada Enacts Anti Terrorism Plan"
"The lockdown remained in effect throughout the afternoon and early evening, ending only at 8:30 PM. According to one news report, police were stopping vehicles leaving Ottawa in the direction of Montreal and questioning their occupants.

The emergency measures extended well beyond Ottawa. In Toronto, additional police were deployed at the Ontario legislature, City Hall, government and military facilities and on the subway. In Montreal, City Hall was closed to visitors and at the Quebec National Assembly in Quebec City, security was doubled and a helicopter circled the building.

All Canadian Armed Forces bases have been placed on high alert and NORAD, the joint US-Canadian North American Aerospace Defense Command, has increased its "alert posture," placing an increased number of fighter jets on high alert. The US has also heightened security along the Canada-US border."

First Comment from V:

Very suspicious events in Ottawa yesterday including:

* Ottawa Police, RCMP asked public not to post photos, videos of supposed shooting.

* Ottawa Police, RCMP pointed guns at some journalists not to take pictures, video

* Supposed suspect had a double barrel shotgun inside the Parliament Buildings. How can you have a shoot-out with a gun only holding 2 bullets at once.

* ISIS pr department (CIA, MI-6, Mossad) tweets photo of supposed shooting suspect before Ottawa police know.

* Police said initially that there were multiple shooters and then changed to the lone wolf shooter. First reports about shooting at Rideau Centre (shopping mall) then changed the story to no shooting at Rideau Centre.

* The police have the suspects cell phone. This as laughable as the mint condition passport of one of the supposed 9-11 highjackers:

"Associated Press Television News journalist Jorge Barrera reported that police are in possession of a photograph of one of the gunmen, who reportedly has dark skin and long black hair. Barrera also tweeted that police have the suspect's cellphone."

The real terrorist is Harper and his minions but he gets his marching orders from the higher ups in Ottawa, Washington and especially London, UK.

I guess I'll have to rely on you, Henry, to keep me up to date on this latest bullshit Zionist maneuver, as the whole international scene has become too ridiculous for me to invest any time in.

I don't watch TV or listen to a radio, anymore.  Out of curiosity, I switched on the truck radio a few times, briefly, throughout the day, and sure enough the crap was still being spewed forth by our mindless and complicit media.  Learned some new words, though... like "radicalized".  Lol!  I guess men like us are "radicalized", too, in some sense.

"Prime Minister Netanyahu"... Lol, good one!  Though I've always preferred "Nutandayahoo", myself.  Both are 'special' cases, nonetheless.  Equally worthless, in my view.

My antipathy for Prime Minister Nutandayahoo grows with each passing day.  I listened to his canned speech which I would compare to a root canal without anesthesia, in terms of pleasantry.  I've never liked the bozo and now I know why.  The 'attack' was inevitable... I'll bet Nutandayahoo was crying for the opportunity to subject Canada to some kind of false flag, so he could play the victim like the UK and the US.  Little brother likes to be with the big boys, too... or should I say the little ferret-face likes to hang with the big weasels?  Even if it wasn't an overt attack, his moronic foreign policy has no doubt inspired many of us to want to shoot the bastard full of holes.

In any case, I'll be sleeping soundly IN my bed, tonight, and not UNDER it.  Sorry, CBC, your plan failed! 

Scruples - the game of moral dillemas

I watched Evan Solomon's coverage of Vicars "heroic neutralization" of the shooter in Ottawa and thought, wow what bullshit. Did anyone notice all the new shiny and exciting freedom stealing bills that will soon be before the house stealing your rights?

Does anyone wonder how this lone wolf, self radicalized mentally deranged fellow who usually uses a sharpened stick to terrorize McDonald's employees became the poster boy for the homegrown example of the ISIS terrorist network? When will people get smart to the formulated false flags repeatedly been played on the nations of the world by the same old supremacist tribal network.

This to me smell like "Port Arthur" Mark II...
As you can check this up on internet. This false flag that was used to disarm Australians. To keep them safe.

The event as you can read about, was supposedly perpetrated by a young man with an IQ of 60, who managed to kill 29 people with shots in the head & neck while running in the Port Arthur site Cafe & shooting from the hip.(Australian SAS man would have difficulty to do this kind of score)

Then our "Dear Leader" of the day. Ordered the total demolition of the Cafe & has cancelled a subsequent Coroner's Inquest... Then Martin Bryant (IQ of 60) was pressured/forced to plead guilty with the help of his appointed lawyer. (No proper trial)

So now . I wonder If your "Dear Leader" S Harper will totally demolish the Parliament House after this shootting??

BTW. The photos that I have seen on the net of Bibeau doesn't match with the guy holding the shotgun & an Islamic scarfe across his face....Humhh

I was watching coverage of this as it unfolded on both CP24 and CNN. I agree with what many of the people have already said here. I had to laugh today as CNN still covered the events as if yesterday's shooting was on the same scale as the Pearl Harbor attack. They even had a nifty, new, dramatic OTTAWA ATTACK graphic to lead in with and to make everyone feel afraid. The whole thing seems to be a textbook psyop to instill fear and militancy into the people.

They also showed a looped segment where the militarized Ottawa Police were theatrically aiming their automatic weapons, presumably at the rooftops of the buildings on the opposite side of the street, as they escorted supposed V.I.P.s out of a building door that said "Post Office" over it.

There was even a bizarre piece on CNN where they showed a Google Earth image of how close Ottawa allegedly is to the American border (no doubt to whip up the phony patriots there).

We had Harper talking valiantly about remaining defiant. With all the rhetoric and gravitas from our "leaders", I felt as if I had been catapulted back to London, England during the Blitz! Harper was planning on tightening surveillance laws before this happened and now says he resolved to do just that. How convenient for him that the events of this week happened, so that he can now expect very little opposition to his plans.

Whenever someone mentions rights or the Charter, he can just point to the shooter and say it's a reasonable response.

People should take a deep breath and see this for what it was. On the face of it, and even the masses should be able to comprehend this, it was one gunman who murdered a soldier and ran through the Centre Block of Parliament.

I don't recall anyone flying into a frenzy of terrorist fear when Denis Lortie shot up the Quebec Legislature in 1984, despite the fact he killed three people and injured thirteen. That right there demonstrates how dependent people have become on television and allowed it to do their thinking for them.

I was out to eat this evening at a local hamburger joint and noticed all the patrons looking worriedly toward the TV set there as the newscaster spoke about the "Lone wolf terrorist". The sheep are ready to be shorn.

I'll tell you one thing, though. I slept just as well last night as I did the night before. My only fear is that the manipulated people will now either demand more "security" or compliantly go along with whatever draconian plan the government has up its sleeve.

CR said (October 23, 2014):

I think everyone is overreacting. Don't they realize this is just the Syrian moderate opposition lobbying parliament for increased funding? And Stephen Harper looks like he lost his script. Did he forget that this is good for Israel? Not to worry, I'm sure his buddy Netanyahu will set him straight.

Another man jumped the fence at the White House Wednesday night and was taken away. Washington was on temporary " lockdown" until 9pm. You would really think that the President could at least afford to place a few 8 dollar an hour security guards around the perimeter of the fence by now but I guess the domestic budget is pretty tight these days.

I'm curious if Canada has a Homeland Security Department yet. After what happened in Ottawa yesterday I'm sure one is in the way along with maybe some of those "bare all" scanners like the ones used at America airports. And, maybe they'll even temporarily suspend your constitution also for your own safety and security.

Welcome to the 'War on Terror' Canada.

Tracy said (October 23, 2014):

Here in the U.S. the media reacted just as the Canadian media did. They painted it as a MASSIVE catastrophe, and I do think they exaggerated the damage done ( the taking of life is a shame, but the reporting here in the U.S. was hyped to extremes ) I watch the networks closely, especially NBC and CNN. The fear and loathing party on those channels went on all night long.
And the phrase " recently converted to Islam" was uttered ad nauseam.

I used to be a part of the tv news world, but fortunately I did not work for the national news networks, and I know that I would never want to. Their reporters and anchors appear to have absolutely no autonomy, and it seems their bosses are determined to have them frighten viewers to death, and try to herd everyone into war, yet again.

David said (October 23, 2014):

ISIS was dreamed up by American intelligence because they can't get traction with Al-Qaeda (Arabic slang for The Toilet) anymore. And don't forget about the new kid on the block, "Khorasan"! It all smacks of marketing and hard-sell campaigns, since the "war on Terror" is the big growth industry in the West

Leonard said (October 23, 2014):

Considering I do not watch establishment news either this is the first I have heard about the incident, and I am so very sorry to hear it. Here in the occupied US as you know these events go on almost all the time. It appears the false flag strategy has changed from the "lone shooter" narrative to the " Epidemic" narrative. I approach everything that comes from WDC / US media
with skepticism.

The US media( as you and other worthy news sources well know) are pure propaganda whose function is to out right lie to the US people, or when that is impossible to perform damage control. The more Sandy Hooks, Auroras, Sikh temple shootings... Ebola scares... that I hear about...the more I disbelieve the establishment script. I refuse to participate in their really bad theater productions.

Jeff said (October 23, 2014):

I kept checking back to your site all day waiting for your comment on today's events and you did not disappoint.

First on CPAC today they said the police are still searching for a motive, then on comes Harper and basically gives a motive, including the group he was 'inspired' by and a complete psychiatric evaluation of this guy. Usually he would say it would be inappropriate for him to comment because the investigation is still ongoing.

His speech was totally scripted and teleprompted. He mentioned how this will strengthen Canada's ties with our 'allies'. Of course this means US/Israel. Harper knows Canadians are cool about an extended mission in Iraq, so this will be used to boost support for such a mission.

I am currently arguing with a shill on the CNN channel who claims to be a Canadian and how this was a Muslim job 100% and that I'm a 'paranoid conspiracy theorist'. I directed him toward your piece. Funny how anyone is a terrorist now even if you don't actually belong to a group, you can be an 'inspired terrorist'. Thanks again Henry. I check out your site on a daily basis and will continue to do so.

Henry, I was driving into Ottawa today to go for a swim. I was listening to the radio while driving. I couldn't help but laugh at times with what was being said. The imbeciles on the radio were comparing the event to a 'Canadian 911', they were drooling over how America essentially would be more prepared for such an event -- they were totally engaged in this incident as if it was such an exciting thing for them. It was as if they were happy the government now had an excuse to implement draconian laws, implement a police-like state in Canada, and get on board the war on terror bandwagon or a combination of these. Or maybe it was simply because they had such a big story to cover, but I doubt it because these seemed like men brainwashed by the now old war on terror propaganda. One man even mentioned preemtive arrests… totally nauseating, tyrannical, and cowardly.

While at the lobby of the pool the radio was also on, and I was eavesdropping in the lobby. One lady was talking about how so many people were upset and how this incident was basically wake-up call for Canada (to become more 'secure' I assume). I wanted to put in my two cents, but I didn't bother, someone would of probably been offended anyways. People trust the government I guess.

I am with you in finding it odd that after a shooting at the war memorial, a man would of been able to get into parliment with a gun. It makes no sense. Also I am 'fishy' about the Kevin Vickers ordeal aswell, especially since the media immediately jumped for him and made him a hero character - immediately. I heard a man who claimed to be his brother talk also on the radio, and he seemed like he was laughing, praising his brother. He didn't seem to register the fact that his brother supposedly just shot and killed a man - a very serious thing.

I was listening to a Youtube channel Freeradiorevolution after I got home today, and he mentioned as well how he found it very peculiar that an armed man would be able to shoot someone across the street and then get into the Parliament building with a gun. He also mentioned on how a Globe and Mail cameraman was also on the scene to capture the event - despite the fact that one would think the building would go into an immediate 'lock-down' after the first shooting across the street.

Anyways, whether a real or false-flag event, it's guaranteed to be used by the media and government to further the hidden agenda.
