When Canadian law enforcement authorities busted a Toronto terrorist plot with al-Qaida connections, they acted with the benefit of briefings and research developed by American investigator Paul L. Williams, author of the new WND Books release “Dunces of Doomsday: 10 Blunders that Gave Rise to Radical Islam.”

Canadian police last Friday arrested 17 suspected Islamic terrorists, mostly in Toronto, who were allegedly planning to unleash a string of attacks in Ontario in retaliation for the country’s support of the U.S. in the War on Terror.

Williams has long been investigating the link between terrorist operatives and Canada’s McMaster University. Williams’ research has unveiled a complex, highly connected group of radical Islamic professors – many of whom earned their advanced degrees from McMaster – strategically recruiting radical Islamic jihadists and converted sympathizers who enrolled as students under aliases for terrorist training and to steal radioactive material from the university.

In late May, Williams traveled to Canada to investigate his McMaster University findings. By his third day in Ontario, Williams was a guest of the government “because of the leads I was providing to the Ontario police,” he says.

“When I spoke to the Ontario police, they were investigating some of the students, and I was investigating the faculty,” he said. “You have a virulent nest of al-Qaida operatives who have been there since 1996. Several of those operatives from Toronto were mentioned in a BOLO (Be on the Lookout) report issued in 2004. In the Division of Earthquake Engineering (at McMaster University), there are 16 professors; 15 of them are from Cairo, and they all have their advanced degrees from McMaster. We’ve discovered that some of these professors have ties to Islamic Jihad in Egypt. You’re seeing the first wave of arrests.”

In the “Dunces of Doomsday,” Williams writes, “At McMaster University, where the al-Qaida agents registered under fictitious names, wanted terrorist Adnan el-Shukrijumah and friends wasted no time in gaining access to the nuclear reactor and stealing more than 180 pounds of nuclear material for the creation of radiological bombs.”

Now, in addition to the members of the terrorist network arrested last Friday, Williams says, “We believe we found Adnan el-Shukrijimuah in the Toronto area and, if not, we’ve found his double.”

Williams describes the latest series of events as “the tip of the iceberg,” with the worst yet to come. He asserts that the United States is in danger of a looming attack, made possible by years of top-level administration avoidance and lax security.

“When you hear of a nuclear spillage (missing radioactive material) … the last one – the only one – I’ve heard of was Chernobyl. That’s huge. They cannot deny it,” Williams says.
