Mohamed Fahmy: How the Media Party used this "Al Jazeera hack" to attack Harper

Rebel Staff

Canadian of convenience Mohamed Fahmy was born in Egypt, became a Canadian citizen in his teens, but returned to the Middle East to cover the region for the LA Times, and finally Al Jazeera, the state-sponsored Qatar media outlet.

Some background: Qatar is a financial and moral supporter of terrorist groups, including ISIS and Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood.

The Brotherhood's takeover of Egypt was a disaster for Egyptians and others; eventually, they were overthrown but the situation is far from safe or stable.

Fahmy was in the midst of all this as a "journalist," although some would call his work "propaganda." Egypt did, banning Al Jazeera and arresting its employees.

And when he was in trouble, Fahmy suddenly remembered he was a Canadian!

The Canadian media made fools of themselves on this non-issue, with Antonia Zerbisias writing that PM Harper was ignoring Fahmy's plight because he was too chummy with the Jews and with Israel.

Fahmy was pardoned and released the next day. So much for that!

But did the media ever really care about Mohamed Fahmy?

Or did they just use him, like he used his Canadian citizenship?

A Canadian of convenience indeed Randy Williams. Since Mulcair and Justin made such a big deal about this. They should wave the same flag when they are campaigning.

Funny thing is he really is a Canadian of convenience. After all that wasn’t a Canadian Flag he was waving around was it?

Yet one more example of us being to generous when it comes to handing out citizenship and another reason why we need legal avenues to revoke it.

Well, I’m giving Fahmy a break on this one. If there was one shred of evidence that he did in fact act for the Muslim Brotherhood, his arse would be still rotting in a Cairo cell.
And as for our pathetic media making him a poster-boy, shrug, who cares? Would you expect anything else?

I knew this guy was just a tool, used by the left, to keep clanging the death knell for our PM Harper!
commented 2015-09-28 18:28:16 -0400
They are already under there boot, they just don’t realize it.

Oh, and thanks Ezra for giving us the full skinny on this. Would never have known otherwise if it wasn’t for your efforts!

What Ezra talks about goes right across the board. The Left uses EVERYBODY as battering rams. Whether it’s single moms, gays, trans, women, minorities etc. They couldn’t give a rats tail about any of them. I’ve been saying this for years. And it makes sense when you consider they have no morals, no scruples no nothing. Their supporters, like Terry n Jimmy are just useful idiots. Army ants they can count on to do the grunt work. Ants they would think twice about stomping on should they get under-foot.

Screw Fahmy he is not a Canadian in any way shape or form. He is Islamic first and foremost before anything and that is not Canadian. Screw him, he went over there and supported a terrorist organization trying to take control of the country being caught jailed or killed was a very likely outcome. Why should Canada have spent its time and money trying to help this terrorist sympathizer get out of the prison cell he belonged in. Never mind bring him over to Canada, that’s all we need another terrorist supporter walking around Canadian streets.

Harper shouldn’t have helped Fahmy. I suppose he did so to shut Mulcair and Trudeau up. What a pair of losers. They need to sling crap at Harper and the conservatives to get votes because they really don’t have anything good to offer Canadians. If they did they wouldn’t be resorting to such scummy low blow tactics. If Harper gets re-elected he should shut down some of the media outlets that were trying to make him look bad, including CBC and that journalists union.

Canadians of convenience – they are all over the world – time to revoke some passports and citizenships.

Mulcair, like Trudeau, will do anything for the Muslim vote. He is a low life idiot and a traitor to his Country. He should be sent to France, minus his Canadian Citizenship.
As for the Muslim in jail in Egypt. Harper should rescind his Canadian Citizenship immediately and inform the Egyptian Government SAP.
commented 2015-09-28 14:36:01 -0400
Ezra I totally agree. Our gov’t should stay out of Egypt’s affairs. They convicted him twice so how did the idiot not get his day in court?
Just like those other 2 clowns Egypt arrested heading to Gaza. Can you imagine a gay dumb enough to go to Gaza? Egypt saved their lives.

Doug Brinkman- what is it with you and the MSM that love terrorist Kadr so much? You say “lighten up on Omar Kadr instead of being bullies”, when did it become acceptable to call reporters “bullies” for reporting the news. What about Kadr the terrorist being a bully himself? A terrorist is just that, they are the biggest bullies on the planet, do as I say or I kill you. Most Canadians do not want that terrorist here except for a minority of people, I am really getting tired of people like you calling a terrorist a hero and then disrespect the solders family whom Kadr killed. I will always support the victim and not the perpetrator, in this case Kadr the terrorist that murdered and maimed will not get my support but Tabitha Speer and Sgt. Layne Morris will get my support, most Kadr the terrorist supporters do not know who they are so you may want to google them.

Vlad, tell us how you really feel!

Ezra, perhaps you could mention how many years Fahmy did not live in Canada. Was it 10 or 20 years? Glad he got out, so the MSM can move on to another story. Perhaps the 99 yr old woman who lived in Canada 80 years, but isn’t a citizen.

All along I knew that our idiot elite left and their media were using this issue to attack Harper and give voice to their hatred of Israel.
Why is it that the left has this hatred of Israel and such adoration for terrorists striving to murder Jews.

MSM pumps plenty of hate spew stories to derail our beloved Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

The MSM and their communist pig allies don’t control information anymore – this election is going to be entertaining to watch the MSM nazi dogs lie about how they were wrong, or better yet how Canadian voters were wrong.

To the globe and mail, national post, CBC, torstar and CTV – the lot of you can FUCK RIGHT OFF YOU COMMUNIST DOGS!!!
