Book Description

Oct. 25 2006
"We believe Al Qaeda continues to have a terrorist infrastructure in Canada, one with documented links to the U.S. While many border security measures have been implemented since 9/11, the vast expanse of the 4,000-mile-long U.S. northern border, with eighty-six points of entry and various unofficial crossings, may still provide opportunities for operatives to penetrate U.S. national security, particularly if Western passports are used."
--The FBI, in a classified bulletin 

"Cold Terror will shock the conscience of a nation. In terrifying detail, it shows how the world’s terrorists have made themselves at home in Canada—and how they have been made welcome by cowardly politicians."
--David Frum, Resident Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and author of, with Richard Perle, An End to Evil: What’s Next in the War on Terror

"Stewart Bell’s clarion call for action needs to be heeded before the ticking Canadian terrorist time bomb blows up closer to home. If Canadian terrorists aren’t stopped before they use weapons of mass destruction in the United States, we’ll have far bigger problems than keeping the border open for trade."
--Patrick Grady, The Globe and Mail

From the Inside Flap

"With perhaps the singular exception of the United States, there are more international terrorist groups active in Canada than any other country in the world."
—Ward Elcock, former director of the Canadian Intelligence Security Service

On June 2, 2006, police tactical teams began a series of raids in Canada's largest city. Eighteen suspects were taken into custody and charged with being part of an Al Qaeda-inspired terrorist group that was plotting to storm the Parliament Buildings and detonate truck bombs in downtown Toronto.

The world was shocked by the arrests, but to those in the know they were simply a reminder of Canada's recurring problem with terrorism. Indeed, while 9/11 shook the world, until that infamous day the worst terror attack in modern history was the work of Canadians--the June 23, 1985 bombing of two passenger planes that claimed 331 lives. And that is just one example of Canadian terror.

For over two decades, international terrorist organizations have operated on Canada's soil--the Babbar Khalsa, Hezbollah, Hamas, the Tamil Tigers, Algerian GIA, Al Jihad and Al Qaeda--raising money, recruiting and planning acts of deadly violence. Although Canadian security agencies are highly regarded internationally, the threat posed by made-in-terror reamins a concern even to Western allies, particularly the United States.

Why have terrorist networks been able to flourish in Canada? How do they threaten Canada's allies and neighbor? Who are the central figures and what have they been up to? What are Canada's policy makers, and their security and intelligence forces, doing to disrupt terrorist operations?

Award-winning investigative journalist Stewart Bell, who has been writing about terrorism since the late 1980s, tackles these questions and more in his hard-hitting, well-researched and engaging book. Reporting from Canada's multicultural cities as well as Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Middle East, Europe, and the United States, he goes deep inside the terrorist underworld that operates in his native country.

His findings are disturbing and incontrovertible: terrorist groups have long targeted Canada as a wealthy safe haven for their operations. And now Canada, like other Western nations, is facing the daunting threat of homegrown terrroism.    

This updated edition of the critically acclaimed best-seller first published in 2004 is a must-read for anyone who wants to see how terrorist networks can infiltrate, corrupt and exploit an unguarded nation, and the carnage that results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive Jan. 7 2010
By Toni Osborne TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
I encourage every citizen of Western countries, especially Canadians to read "Cold Terror". Mr Bell one of Canada's leading reporters on national security and terrorism has courageously presented evidence in this acclaimed book, exposing events taken from classified intelligence documents, front line accounts and interviews to inform Canadians about terrorists living in their country.

In his book he recounts many incidents that happened around the world involving Canadian terrorists: the most talked about are: the 1985 Air India bombing, the 1991 assassination of Indian prime Minister Gandhi, the 1993 World trade Centre bombing, the 1993 assassination of Sri Lankan President Premadasa, the 1995 attack at the Egyptian embassy in Islamabad and the killing of tourists in Egypt in 1997and the truck explosion that killed 100 in Sri Lanka the same year, the Bali night club bombing in 2002 and the 2003 attack in Riyadh.

The book doesn't stop there it also provides examples of terrorists taking advantage of the liberal immigration and refugee policies to enter Canada, most of us will remember the better known: such as the Canadian leader of the Tamil Tiger Mr Suresh, Issa Mohammed who took part in the assault of an El Al airliner in Athens in 1998, Essam Marzouk responsible for the training of the bombers of the US Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998 and Ahmed Ressam who was caught at the Port of Angeles border trying to get into the US with a carload of explosives determined to blow up the L.A. airport

In one chapter, the author went to great length recalling multiple incidents credited to the Khadr clan.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's hard not to be suspicious July 5 2011
By nbgal
Format:Paperback
I tell myself I'm not racist... but this book makes it very hard not to be suspicious of emigrants, or even anyone who has a different view of politics or religion than you do.
Stewart Bell has the facts, has the documentation to prove his writings. It's something everyone should be aware of, but it also makes you want to continue being an ostrich. But should be a must for our politicians. And once certain organized group has been questioned in friendly countries, any support should be very cautious...
