A Canadian judge has refused to sign the extradition order for Abdullah Khadr, a leading terror suspect.

Khadr has been held in Canada since his arrest in Toronto on December 7, 2005.

The U.S. Justice Department has accused him of killing a peace-keeper in Kabul, of operating a training camp for jihadi recruits in Afghanistan, of purchasing munutions and explosives for al Qaeda, and of participating in a plot to assassinate Pervez Musharraf, the former president of Pakistan.

He pleaded guilty to these charges but Canadian Judge Christopher Speyer ruled that Khadr’s confession was “manifestly unreliable” since it may have been the result of coercion.

Upon his release from custody, Khadr said: “I think this is going to be the beginning of a new life for me. I just want to start anew now.”

Khadr’s “starting anew” may be bad news for the American people.

Witness this portion of his interview with a correspondent from the PBS news program Frontline:

PBS: What was your reaction to September 11, 2001?

Khadr: Like, I think itself was very amazing. It was very wild to see a person seeing a building in front of him and he’s going 900 kilometers per hour straight in the building. That was very hard to believe. If you believe in something very hard you can do that. . .

PBS: So you felt admiration for the people who did this?

Khadr: Yes. Because they did some things that stunned the entire world. Everybody for entire, like months, was talking about that. I was watching TV and they brought some person from China, I think. China, Taiwan, something like that. And they asked him, he said that this is good for America to know that it is not always the superpower that can hit, that weak people have ways to call the world for the world to listen to them, what they are saying, what they can do.

PBS: Once again, almost 2,500 people were killed in the World Trade Center, almost entirely civilians.

Khadr: I feel sorry for those killed. But Americans kill civilians in Afghanistan. Nobody said anything to them. They killed about 100 persons in a wedding caravan and other place they had killed about the same thing, 100, 115 in a wedding. Nobody blamed them for doing it. And they have the most advanced technology in missiles and controls. So you cannot say they missed because they knew what they’re hitting. If their planes couldn’t see it, the satellites couldn’t see it, then it’s not a superpower, they shouldn’t start hitting everybody. Accusing everybody of anything if they can’t see.

PBS: What were your impressions of Osama bin Laden? I guess you saw him for the first time as a young boy. What were your impressions of him?

Khadr: He was very quiet person. He would eventually get his respect. You would respect what he says. If he talks, he talks very slowly. He never jokes, very quiet person, very polite. He could be a saint, something like a saint.

At Khadr’s preliminary trial for extradition in July 2006, Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin weighed in for Abdullah’s rights by saying: “The family came in many, many years ago and they obtained Canadian citizenship many years ago. They have Canadian citizenship. We don’t have two classes of citizens.”

Mr. Martin neglected to say that Abdullah comes from a line of Muslim terrorists. His father Ahmed Said Khadr, known throughout the Arabian world as “al-Kanadi” or “the Canadian,” was a leading al-Qaeda member who was killed in 2003 by the Pakistani army.

Abdullah’s brother Omar is currently detained in the US prison camp at Guantanamo Bay for killing an American soldier in Afghanistan in 2002.

His youngest brother Abdul was left half-paralyzed from gunshot wounds sustained when Pakistani forces raided an al-Qaeda camp near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border in October 2003.

All of the Khadr children, including Abdullah, were raised in al-Qaeda training camps. Elsamnah Khadr, Abullah’s mother, was quoted in the Toronto Globe and Mail as saying: “Would you like me to raise my child in Canada to be, by the time he’s 12 or 13 years old, to be on drugs or having some homosexual relationship? Is it better?”

In 2004, Elsamnah transported her remaining children back to Toronto so that her wounded son Abdul could take full advantage of the Canadian healthcare system. She appeared in full burqa before the throng of reporters who gathered at her home in Scarborough to say: “We’ve just been to the [Ontario Health Insurance Plan] office. That’s it. They said we have to fill out forms. I’m proud of what we are and I’m proud we’re in Canada now.”

The application met with immediate approval.

The saga of the Khadr family and the decision by Judge Speyer should cause all Americans to shudder. It illustrates the fact that the Canadian government remains reluctant to address the problem of Islamic terrorism even when radical Muslims perform egregious acts. Terrorists from Canada, even those who have killed members of US-led coalition forces (including fellow Canadians) retain the rights to political asylum, public welfare, and Canadian passports.

Why, therefore, would any self-respecting terrorist feel compelled to wade across the Rio Grande?

Concerning the threat from America’s neighbor to the north, Walter Todd Huston writes:

Al Qaeda understands well that Canada happily creates the conditions by which those attacks can be planned and fostered. Islamofascist operatives worldwide understand that Canada offers a rich bounty of social programs, a lax law enforcement culture and a visceral hatred of the USA that is growing with every year, all verdant soil in which to plant the hatred of Islamofascism.

Al Qaeda knows that if one of their operatives is arrested in Canada it is pretty sure that no prosecution or even deportment will result. Further they know that even if arrested once, this does not eliminate the possibility of an operative carrying on his efforts as many are arrested and released multiple times before anything more stringent is applied to them.

Americans Against Hate

(Coral Springs, FL) Yesterday, August 3, 2010, throughout the day, Fox News featured as a guest for different Fox shows Nihad Awad, the National Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), to discuss the building of a Ground Zero mosque.

Awad is a former leader of the then-American propaganda wing of Hamas, the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), and CAIR has been named by the U.S. government as a party to the financing of millions of dollars to Hamas.

On the O’Reilly Factor, a show hosted by Bill O’Reilly, O’Reilly told Awad, “You’re a good guest” and “We appreciate you coming on.”

When Awad told O’Reilly that the Muslim community has “no connection with terrorists,” O’Reilly ignored the statement and never questioned Awad’s or his group’s own connection with terrorists or Hamas financing.

During another Fox show, when a guest brought up CAIR’s ties to terror, Fox host Bill Hemmer cut off the discussion about CAIR, because he said he was getting off the subject of the mosque.

AAH Chairman Joe Kaufman stated, “The building of a radical mosque at Ground Zero is disgusting, but what’s even worse is using the subject to legitimize a terrorist-related group. When Fox News or Bill O’Reilly bring a leader of CAIR on as a guest, they are legitimizing Hamas. Period. We call on Fox and O’Reilly to end their association with CAIR and Hamas.”

Russell Defreitas




Paul L. Williams, Ph.D.

Russell Defreitas, 67, a US citizen born in Guyana, and Abdul Kadir, 58, a resident of Guyana, have been found guilty of conspiring to blow up buildings, fuel tanks and pipelines at the JFK Airport in the New York City borough of Queens.

The two jihadi wannabees, who were arrested in June 2007, now face up to life in prison.

Defreitas, who had worked at the airport, provided knowledge of its facilities and layout, US prosecutors said, while Kadir, an engineer, helped with technical aspects such as how to blow up the buried fuel pipelines.

Defense attorneys for the men portrayed them as all bluster and no substance. Prosecutors said Defreitas and Kadir did more than just talk and “took concrete steps to make this plan a reality.”

But few in the courtroom could deny that the two Muslims who sought to kill thousands of Americans and to cripple the US economy were victims of entrapment.

The JFK plot was conceived not by a radical Islamic group but rather by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

It was engineered, as court records show, by an attempt to capture Adnan el Shukrijumah, the Most Wanted Terrorist in the Western hemisphere.

Shukrijumah, a native American, has been singled out by al Qaeda to spearhead the next attack on American soil – – an attack that has been labeled “the American Hiroshima” by FBI Director Robert Mueller and other intelligence officials.

The search for Shukrijumah got underway in March 2003 with the arrest of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in Pakistan and the information on his computer that the American jihadi, who allegedly received nuclear training at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, was singled out to serve as the next Muhammad Atta.

A $5 million reqard was placed on Shukrijumah’s head, a 24 hour hotline for information concerning his whereaboutrs was established, and special FBI office to supervise the massive manhunt was set up in southern Florida.

In April 2003, the FBI learned that Shukrijumah had made his way to Guyana, the homeland of his Muslim father.

In Georgetown, Guyana, Shukrijumah came under the protection of Farouk Razac, a family friend and well-heeled financier.

He was spotted at the Swiss House Cambio, Razac’s money exchange, by several witnesses, including George Bacchus, a law enforcement informant.

At the Cambio, Shukrijumah met one of Razac’s closest clients – – Imam Muhammed Hassan Abrahemi, the director of the International Islamic College for Advanced Studies, a small Shiite school in Georgetown that received large amounts of revenue from the government of Iran.

Abdul Kadir

He became acquainted with Abdul Nur, a civil engineer, who ran errands for Razac; Abdul Kadir, who served as the assistant director at Abrahemi’s Islamic College; and Russell Defreitas, a member of the Guyanese Parliament and leader of Jamaat ul-Muslimeen.

This new association would produce a trial of corpses leading to a plot to a botched FBI sting and an attempt to blow up the fuel line that feeds the JFK International Airport in New York.

The first victim was Abrahemi, who was kidnapped by two masked men as he was leaving the Islamic College on April 2, 2004. Several days later, his body was discovered within a shallow grave on the outskirts of Georgetown. The hit appeared to be professional. Abrahemi had been shot twice in the back of the head while assuming a kneeling position. His mouth had been taped shut with duct tape, and his hands and feet were bound by nylon cords. The perpetuators of the crime have never been caught.

By this time, the FBI had managed to infiltrate Jamaat ul-Muslimeen and made use of undercover agents to pose as jihadis and to work with Nur, Kadir, and Dufreitas in an attempt to lure the elusive Shukrijumah into a trap.

The undercover agents provided the terrorist group with money and logistical support, compliments of US taxpayers, to launch a plot to blow up a system of jet fuel supply tanks and pipelines that feed fuel to the JFK International Airport in Queens, New York.

Later, U. S. Attorney Roslynn Mauskoff would appear before the press to say that the planned attack represented “one of the most chilling plots imaginable” – – a plot which might have caused “unthinkable devastation.”

In reality, the plot was a ploy since exploding the fuel tanks represented a technical impossibility. Jet fuel does not produce explosive force, and the pipelines and fuel tanks that are buried beneath Queens have safety valves to prevent any mishap.[i]

The FBI had assumed that a well-oiled scheme to blow up a massive international airport and an entire borough of Manhattan would lure Shukrijumah from his hiding place. The assumption proved to be incorrect. Shukrijumah failed to appear at any of planning sessions in Trinidad and Guyana, and the federal officials were left not only with a hefty bill for the cockamamie scheme but also the creation of a new and financially flush arm of Jamaat ul-Muslimeen.

Nur, Kadir, Dufreitas and Kareem Ibrahim, a fourth operative, were taken into custody albeit several the arrests were a result of entrapment.[ii] “We thought he could be the invisible hand. He’s always in the shadows, particularly in [the Caribbean]. He’s passed through it, he’s known, his name came up in the conversations. He would have been the prize,” an FBI official later confirmed.

On May 7, 2007, two months after the airport plot went array, Farouk Razac was found dead in his Georgetown home with a wound to his head and marks around his neck. An autopsy report concluded that he had died of asphyxiation due to ligature strangulation. Carol Ann Lynch, Razac’s wife, was later charged with the homicide but few observers believed that the petite Lynch, who served as the reigning Miss South America, was capable of the crime.[iii]

Meanwhile, federal officials remain at a loss to locate the country’s leading terror suspect.

Paul L. Williams, Ph.D.

Iran is the fourth-largest oil producing country in the world; yet, it is now running out of gas.

The Shiite country lacks the refining capacity to transform their oil reserves into gasoline or diesel.

In order to meet the demands of domestic consumption, Teheran must import 130,000 to 150,000 barrels of gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, and other refined petroleum products a day.

Without such imports, the Iranian economy would be crippled; air transport would be brought to a standstill; trains and buses would stop running; out-fired power plants would go dark; and trucks delivering vital supplies to cities would remain parked in garage warehouses.

The problem has been greatly exacerbated by the economic sanctions against Iran which President Obama signed into law on July 1.

The sanctions impose stiff penalties on any company – – foreign and domestic – – that delivers refined petroleum products to Iran or that assists the Iranian government with domestic refining.

Royal Dutch Shell, India’s Reliance Industries, Russian oil-giant Lukoil, Malaysia’s Petronas, and Swiss independent oil trader Glencore have halted sales of gasoline and refined oil to Teheran.

Lloyd’s of London – – which accounts for 20% of the global marine insurance market – – will no longer insure or reinsure petroleum shipments to Iran.

The problem is further complicated by the decision of the Ahmadinejad regime to secure public support by subsidizing the cost of domestic fuel prices. Motorists in Teheran pay less than $.35 a gallon for gasoline – – about one-seventh of the costs for Americans.

As a gesture of solidarity with Iran, Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez pledged to supply 20,000 barrels of gasoline a day. But Chavez has been unable to keep this promise since three of his largest refineries are located in the United States.

The only solution for the Iranian government in this current crisis, according to economist Bob Czeschin, resides in its attempt to cut off oil supplies to the West by blocking the narrow Strait of Hormuz through which thousands of freighters carrying one third of the world’s oil supplies pass every day.

This plan could be implemented with little or no difficulty. Czeschin explains: “A couple of tankers sunk in the right place could easily close the Strait and cut off those supplies. So could anti-shipping mines – – which Iran has in abundance.”

Only by such tactics, Czeschin and other economists believe, can President Ahmadinejad ward off the possibility of a popular uprising, if not civil war.

In any case, the current situation is certain to cause oil prices to skyrocket and the lives of middle-class Americans to undergo an immediate and drastic transformation.

An Arizona sheriff believes the Supreme Court will ultimately have to overturn Wednesday’s ruling by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton that blocked implementation of most of the new state measure cracking down on those who are in the country illegally.

Judge Susan Bolton handed a victory to President Barack Obama and supporters of illegal aliens by preventing the most significant sections of Arizona’s new immigration law from taking effect on Thursday.

She gutted the sections that required officers to check a person’s immigration status while enforcing other laws, the requirement that immigrants carry their papers at all times, and the section which bans illegal immigrants from seeking employment in public places.

Sheriff Larry Dever of Cochise County believes this case will be appealed all the way to the Supreme Court.

“Our best chance at a favorable decision is…to solve this once and for all. States have a right to protect themselves,” Sheriff Dever says. He adds that “the lame argument in federal government that this law somehow interferes with their ability to enforce immigration law is just ludicrous” because “they’re not getting it done to begin with.”

Cochise County, which borders Mexico, is one of the main routes into the U.S. for illegal aliens.

Sheriff Dever maintains that the federal government has “been talking about partnerships and empowerment since September 11 with state and local law enforcement authorities to get the job done. Arizona steps up [and] says, ‘We’re ready to take on our part,’ and they sue us.”

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he is not surprised by Judge Bolton’s ruling, and adds it will have little impact on his planned “crime-suppression” operation scheduled for this weekend.

“That’s not going to affect our human-smuggling or employer-sanction investigations that wasn’t addressed in that law,” Sheriff Arpaio insists.
