Earlier this month we reported how hazardous material was found on beaches in two towns in Ontario, Canada, forcing the closing of these tourist attractions.
Those beaches were located in Bracebridge and Gravenhurst, both in the Muskoka region.
A letter containing threats to destroy beaches in Ontario, Canada and claiming to be from the Islamic Revolutionary Force was sent to media outlets in the area, reported Kawartha 411.
“We do this because you reject Islam and follow the Great Satan. Infidels you allow your women to disgracefully, shamelessly parade around your beaches all but naked!” the letter stated, adding that the group will “destroy your beaches from Toronto to North Bay.”
Now, two more beaches have been closed in the area after glass shards and sewing needles were discovered buried in the sand, reported Global News.
The two new locations affected, Kirby’s Beach and Bracebridge Bay Park, attract thousands of beach lovers in Ontario’s cottage country every summer.
Brad Hammond, who owns a home on Kirby Beach explained how his family had been in the region since 1882 and this was the first time he’s seen the beach closed.
After discovering the broken bottles a few weeks ago, Hammond’s wife combed the beach, filling up a pail with shards and needles after about eight hours of work.
“It was pretty much the width of the beach but it was in clumps, so you could tell it had been seeded in different areas,” he said. “My wife found broken bottles sitting face-down with the jagged parts facing up. She found nails, sewing needles — a lot of sewing needles.”
Other residents have found the hazards as far away as 60 feet from the shoreline. A diving team has also been brought in.
Although a police investigation and clean-up is on-going, it is clear that in many ways (that only seem to be growing), radical Islam has changed our lives, making enjoying life’s simple pleasures – like going to a beach in the summer — not so simple anymore.
What is also important is that each of us take an active part in countering this threat, making sure that the Islamist can’t win.
