Human rights activist: Trudeau's "naive" response to ISIS amounts to "dropping aid on dead people"

Marissa SemkiwArchive

Christian pastor and activist Majed El-Shafie of One Free World International sees the suffering caused by ISIS every day, and calls on Justin Trudeau to reconsider his position against fighting the Islamic terror group.

El-Shafie -- a former Muslim who suffered torture before coming to Canada -- says Trudeau's proposed "humanitarian" option is "naive."

The Liberal leader's plan, he says, would amount to "dropping aid on dead people."

Fat chance that JT… “the budget will balance itself…” will change his tune on this vote-killing statement…as I have noted before, he only opens his mouth to change feet! Even my Lib friends are saying that JT needs to go to the woodshed! We all have to be concerned and do what needs to be done to prevent leading-in-the polls Dipper Tom Mulcair, would-be Conservative, as now revealed, from getting enough votes to become our next PM!!! HORRORS

Well stated! God help us if JT gets in. We had all better pray that it doesn’t happen. This country is sliding down the slippery slope, along with the USA and Europe. The Left is wilfully blind and it’s incomprehensible to right thinking people how that happens. Are they all on drugs? Were they lobotomized at birth? Do they not value their OWN rights and….LIVES?

Peter N., -- pray, that Harper comes out the winner. Also, as a Christian, Harper supports Isreal. That is extremely important. If any world leader goes against Isreal, the almighty would cease to bless your country. Kenneth L. — Can you see JT meeting with Putin? JT would have to ask his brother, Sasha, to come along with him to the big meeting. Putin would start to laugh at them both! Then Putin would invade all the countries that belonged to the old Russian block. JT would says, help yourself! We’ll send blankets, if any country needs them! What a scary world! NDP would get Govermnent involved in every thing! Big debt would ruin Canada! Prayer for God’s help!

The sincerity and goodness of this man, Majed El-Safie, is apparent. May he be safe!

There’s no surprise in Trudeau’s lack-luster response to ISIS. Or with the NDP’s equally flaccid response. The truth is that there is a convergence of interests among all left-wing parties and ISIS. They all share the same anti-Western, esp anti-American attitudes; they are all anti-industrial development; they are all anti-free enterprise and free market economies; they all mistrust democracy and rely on their favorite elites in the judiciary and human rights commissions to do their bidding; they are all anti-Israel and support various measures that undermine Israel’s ability to defend itself. A convergence of interests is NOT a conspiracy. It simply means they have policies that co-ordinate in one direction towards the same general goals. Naturally, the left-wing parties do not want ISIS’ religious ideology – but they are prepared to accept ISIS as a silent working partner for now.

Kenneth, what you say is so very true, but if Mulcair becomes PM NDP policy wise it will be even worse for Canada, though as an individual able to be PM I respect Mulcair more than I do Justin. It’s a real twisted world we live in. Harper really is the only option for anybody who loves Canada and wants to keep Canada prosperous.

JT the trust fund kid who is Liberal leader only because of his last name, hasn’t learned any history, let alone its mistakes. If he should ever become Prime Minister, it will be a catastrophe for Canada and the rest of the free world.

I suppose Mr. Trudeau wants us to do nothing, much like the UN did nothing in Rwanda where the Hutu’s were slaughtered while UN solders had to watch and were told to do nothing. How disgusting was that? How could that have even happened in good conscience?
When Romeo Delaire (sp?) ran as a Liberal I nearly fell off my chair considering what he went through. Does he even speak to Justin about how silly and naïve he’s being when it comes to foreign policy? Does Justin even have a foreign policy considering what the world is facing – give blankets to Syria? That’s foreign policy? Unbelievable!

You are right Jason, it’s every time I look at the problem it only results into another problem. Just when I look at it with my old moth eaten fordge cap on the situation changes to something else, it is a head scratcher. One thing that is for certain is the supply of money and recruits could be shut down plus the disruption of the social media. Can anyone tell me who is buying the oil that Isis selling, I think it’s turkey any thoughts?

Trudeau is apparently this century’s version of Canadian PM MacKenzie King when it comes to being “non judgemental” when it comes to the Muslim fanatic totalitarion monsters of isis and its ilk.

Problem with that one Kelvin, is that those warlords weren’t reliable. Should we overthrow one regime, only to set up another?

Fraser, Prince has a very valid point. I don’t believe in the “to beat the enemy, one must become the enemy” scenario. The biggest goal isn’t to destroy Iraq, or even Iran, but to liberate them from ISIS control. But to do that takes surgical precision. And given that the UN holds fast to limiting our strikes in the Middle East, we are stuck waiting to be given the green light to make the moves that need to be made. And let me ask this question to ANYONE: Does anyone know who the leader of ISIS is? I don’t. And without the head poking around, we can’t chop it off. Which makes ISIS an almost unstoppable army. If you read into historical wars, they’ve either ended in a few ways. 1. A peace was fostered diplomatically. 2. The leader of the losing army was killed. 3. The invaders pulled out and surrendered.

So, war isn’t as seamless as launching nuclear weapons. And to your point on them launching at us, do they have trans-continental launchers? Very FEW countries do in fact have them. Otherwise, they’d have to fly those missiles near our airspace and launch by plane. And that’s assuming Iranian aircraft could get here.
commented 2015-06-27 16:37:15 -0400
Fraser and Prince, the trouble is you both raise valid points, the middle east is a conundrum, from our prospective in the west the right thing is wrong and wrong thing is right what do you do? Learn from mistakes made in the past? I think in Afghanistan we maybe could have just paid off the war lords to wipe out the Taliban. It might have been money well spent and saved our boys lives.
commented 2015-06-27 16:28:55 -0400
let us have the coalition of the stupid go to the middle east for peace talks with issil. if trudeau, mulcair, and may come back without their heads could that be really a bad thing for the world. if you do not fight them, then you might as well join them!
commented 2015-06-27 16:23:28 -0400
Well Trudeau ,looks like all that Muslim vote groveling you have been doing is going to backfire, looks like they are going to turn on you for your gutless attitude towards their fellow Muslims being slaughtered over there.
You show a complete indifference to the huge suffering over there.
Canada does not need a leader who refuses to protect it’s citizens,or the citizens of the world when faced with danger.

If like in the Second World War if they hide in the crowd then the crown has to suffer. If we kill 10,000 to get one Muslim Islamic killer then so be it’s just like the Germans and the winners did. This is a war was for survival just like the last war was for survival. If I had to kill 2 billion people to save my life and my family’s life and to save my country so be it do it before they do it to you, they make barbarism look good
commented 2015-06-27 15:16:05 -0400
How many civilians are you willing to sacrifice, Fraser? ISIS, Hamas, Hezbollah, Al Qaeda, and the like all hide within a civilian population so as to make it more difficult (and morally objectionable) to strike them. Yes, if they had nuclear weapons, they would use them on us. Should we do the same? These terrorists are diffuse — they’re spread thin and they’re everywhere. Where should we hit? Or are you suggesting we turn the entire Middle East into a sea of radioactive glass? For the sake of a few hundred/few thousand extremists, are you willing to kill millions of civilians?

They have declared war on us, yes.

I’ve posted how difficult it is to actually fight that war.

Emotion aside, how would you have us do it? (And think very carefully about the consequences!)
commented 2015-06-27 15:00:17 -0400
Prince Knight good counter posts you have to realize Muslim Islamic ISIS has been at war with the civilized world for the past seven centuries. They have declared war on us. Now with your point that air craft don’t win wars yes but bombs do but nuclear bombs do it best and they are actively building them and if you think for one moment they would not use it on us your dreaming. Like the second World War with Japan it was a race war the nips didn’t give up until two atomic bombs were dropped thus ending that war and saving million of lives.

I know Trudeau’s gig. It goes like this. He is one of the enlightened ones and if only we on the Right would just smarten up and realize that it is Judeo Christian Western thinking that is to blame for oppressed Islamists rising up against us. We are to blame for everything wrong in the world.
It is a old and boring narrative . The neo communist “progressive” social engineers think that we on the Right must be enlightened.
But we’ve heard their tune before many times and through logic and common sense have rejected their stale world view. Treudea is hardly new or exciting .
commented 2015-06-27 14:15:28 -0400
Fraser — as much as I share your sentiment about our military, here are some facts: 1) Aircraft, even in the air 24/7, do not win wars; boots on the ground do. Territory has to be taken and held. 2) “Boots on the ground” would constitute an invasion of a foreign country, and thus an undeclared war for which we would be guilty. Further, it would be seen as an invasion by infidels, and would unite both the Muslim radicals and the moderates against us. 3) These foreign countries that need our “boots on the ground” will not ask for it, as it would complicate their stance against ISIS, both religiously and politically. There is no political will among the Muslim nations to combat ISIS, even if they privately disapprove. This goes beyond Shiite-Sunni rivalry. For a Muslim nation to publicly condemn ISIS is to turn ISIS’ attention against that nation and bring reprisals, the likes of which we’ve already seen. Unfortunately, this public condemnation and confrontation by force (“boots on the ground”) is exactly what is needed to combat and defeat ISIS. But it would also be an unconventional conflict (read, guerrilla warfare, house-to-house combat, Vietnam repeated) that would bring astronomical casualties, particularly among the civilian populace.

Trudeau is indeed a politically-minded reed, with no convictions or backbone. But this situation is much more complex than it appears, and there is no simple solution.

(Personally, I think Tehran is in big trouble — Iran’s leadership (Tehran) is funding much of the Muslim terrorist organizations worldwide, and is in Israel’s target sights in a bad way. I’m beginning to wonder if Tehran itself might just get nuked in a pre-emptive strike…)

The war on ISIS. what war!!!
They still have electricity, they still have food, they still roam the roads day and night, they are still expanding, they still have water, they still have mosques, they still have bridges, they still can parade in broad daylight. The RCAF F-18 have been on more than 100 sorties they have only dropped bombs on 3 occasions this is not war. WHO is in command of our forces Harper or Obama or Cameron. To watch the inhuman crimes of ISIS makes me wonder who is in command do we not have planes that are keeping ISIS in view can we not stop these vipers form doing these repugnant acts we should have planes in the air 24/7 to stop these act. WHO shares the blame for letting these acts past I say it the leaders of the free world they all are to blame and should be held accountable and charged with war crimes. These Muslim Islamic have no right to life so do them and their supporters a favour send the to hell as quickly as possible.

This man is a shining example of humanity.

The Reverend is correct. ISIS declared war against us! Trudope being advised by lefty Gerald Butts is pandering for the Islamist vote in this country. Mulcair is no better.

Remember that vacuous leftard toss-off comment about someone “being on the wrong side of history”? Well I think we have the actual proper use for it here with Justy the peace bunny. We can be thankful he wasn’t in control around in 1938 when the world had to deal with fascist global domination because he’s ready to repeat Chamberlin’s mistake of appeasement of pure evil. ISIL/Jihadist Islam is the new fascism of our time – we have a leadership candidate either too insulated or too stupid to comprehend the dangers of his era. Either way he betrays fatally flawed judgement which renders him unfit to lead a nation.
