Mahmoud Jaballah and his family arrived in Canada in May 1996 using forged Saudi Arabian passports. Additionally, he had alleged ties to the 19989 terrorist bombings of U.S. embassies in Africa, so shouldn’t this have been the beginning AND end of his immigration story?
Alas, we’re talking Canada, here, and that means a suspected jihadi gets to hang around in our great Dominion for more than 20 years, and as an added bonus, he gets to sue us for a multimillion-dollar payout due to his hurt feelings!
A National Post story notes that between 1999 and 2016, the government signed three security certificates naming Jaballah but all failed to stand up in court, and the government’s case ultimately died in the Federal Court of Appeal in October 2016.
And so it is that Jaballah is pretty much free to stay, and taking a page from Canada’s al-Qaeda family, the Khdars, he's now on the hunt for some big-time moolah to soothe his hurt feelings courtesy of you, the Islamophobic taxpayer.
