The oldest, Qayyum Abdul Jamal, led prayers at a storefront mosque attended by some 40 to 50 families down the street from his home in a middle-class neighborhood of Mississauga, west of Toronto.
Imam Qamrul Khanson said the language of Jamal's Friday night prayers had a more strident tone than other prayer leaders', but there was never any talk of terrorism or violence.
Khanson said at least three of the suspects regularly prayed at the Al-Rahman Islamic Center for Islamic Education.
"Here we always preach peace and moderation," Khanson said at the one-room mosque.
(I confess. I'm once again sick of hearing of the peace loving Islamists who enter what are traditionally anglo-saxon, Judeo-Christain countries and then proceed to tear them apart. It's happened here, Britain, Spain, France and many other places and it happens over and over again. "We preach peace and moderation.", they gush, knowing that their words are lies. The Muslims seem hell bent to blow up anything and everything. In fairness to them, they blow each other up with increasing frquency so it doesn't seem as if we're the only targets. I'm tired of Imams, mosques, fatwahs and all the other foolishness tied to this pseudo-religion. As a group, Islam and its followers are contributing nothing to the progress of the population of Spaceship Earth. Fanatics, plain and simple with no other goal than to murder innocents even at the cost of their own children. They must be stopped.)
