On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, I reported on convicted Al Qaeda terrorist Omar Khadr seeking permission from the Canadian government to speak with his Islamist sister Zaynab Khadr, and visit Saudi Arabia "to perform the Hajj".
Here's the story in the Toronto Star:
Former Guantanamo Bay detainee Omar Khadr wants to be granted a Canadian passport to travel to Saudi Arabia and permission to speak to his controversial sister.
Is that really the main thing about him — that he was in Guantanamo Bay? Not that he was in Al Qaeida, as was his father before him? Not that he was convicted by a jury of murder and other crimes? No mention of that at all. Let alone his victims, including the U.S. Army medic he murdered, Christopher Speer.
Khadr, who is now 32, will be back in the Court of Queen's Bench in Edmonton Thursday to apply for changes to his bail conditions which were imposed while he appeals war crime convictions by a U.S. military commission.
Khadr pleaded guilty; he gave a detailed description of the war crimes he committed — including that he got paid a bounty for killing Americans; that he was trained in things like poisoning people; that he planted IEDs, of the type that killed Canadians. Khadr freely confessed to all this, and we know it was freely, because his very zealous lawyers approved of it.
He says in his affidavit that he would like to be able to speak on the phone or over Skype to his sister Zaynab Khadr. He is also asking to perform the Hajj, a pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia which is a mandatory religious duty for Muslims once in their lifetime.
Oh, Zaynab Khadr. His sister. She loves the murder of infidels.
Joshua Boyle used to be married to Zaynab Khadr. Then he took his subsequent wife to Afghanistan, where the next wife was raped by the Taliban. Great people.
Trudeau had a secret meeting with Boyle when he got back from Afghanistan. It only came to light when Boyle tweeted about it. And he said that it wasn’t his first time meeting Trudeau. Isn’t that odd?
"For this reason, I would like to apply for a Canadian passport," he said in the document.
And you know what? He will absolutely get it. Our courts love Omar Khadr even more than Trudeau does.
