10 Year Old Canadian Born Terrorist in Training

Driving to Montreal yesterday I tuned into CBC for a while - they were doing a call in on the home grown terrorists. A woman caller revealed herself as a teacher formerly working in a school in Regent Park. She told the story of a 10 year old boy she was working with. They were having a wonderful chat, he was smiling and laughing and explained how he knew how to speak all the languages in the world.
She asked him what Shalom meant.
She said his eyes went dead and he said "thats what Jews say and when we see Jews we're supposed to kill them."
The CBC host quickly soon after cut her off and started making apologies for 10 year olds in general, and how children of all backgrounds sometimes have misguided ideas.
Regent Park, along with being the easiest place in Toronto to get a cab, is also becoming largely Muslim. Of course, a fair share of these likely have such views and teach them to their children.
