MONTREAL: Alleged bomb-maker Jordi Antunes Barros released while he awaits trial

MONTREAL – An 18-year-old Montreal man accused of making 19 pipe bombs has been released while he awaits trial, but must remain under the strict watch of his family.

Jordi Antunes Barros was arrested May 17 after his father discovered bomb-making materials in his home.

Police discovered 19 pipe bombs as well as enough materials to make several more.

The bomb squad was called in, and it took more than 20 hours to dismantle the bombs. More than 50 nearby homes were evacuated as a precaution.

Barros is allowed to stay at home until his trial begins in August, but the courts have placed strict conditions on his freedom.

Terrorists Xristos Katsiroubas and Ali Medlej die in attack on Algerian gas plant that kills 70 people

Terrorists Xristos Katsiroubas, left, and Ali Medlej

How do middle-class Canadian kids become international terrorists?
By Matthew Coutts | Daily Brew – 21 hours ago

Xristos Katsiroubas, left, and Ali Medlej.
There are no straightforward answers when it comes to understanding what led Xristos Katsiroubas and Ali Medlej to abandon their lives in London, Ont., to join an Al-Qaida-linked militant group that attacked and took hostages at an Algerian gas plant.

The two boys have been described recently as average, everyday-type Canadians. That seemed to be the case right up until shortly before they flew overseas and died in the Algerian attack in January.

CBC News reported on Wednesday that a third schoolmate had travelled with the pair to North Africa and was jailed shortly before his cohorts died participating in the attack in Algeria.

Aaron Yoon was another average Canuck, a boy of Korean descent who was quiet and friendly and converted to Islam in his final year of high school. Continue reading

Immigration Minister Jason Kenney has stated what many have been thinking for some time: He has proposed that Canadian passport holders who commit acts of terror abroad or in Canada may have their citizenship revoked.

The scope of the private member’s Bill C-425 proposed by Conservative MP Devinder Shory will therefore be expanded to include the right of the Canadian government to revoke citizenship of individuals with dual nationalities who commit terror abroad or against Canada. Continue reading

Par Normand Lester | La chronique de Normand Lester – mer. 23 janv. 2013

Vous n’avez sans doute jamais entendu parler d’Abderraouf Jdey et de Faker Boussora. Ce sont deux Québécois d’origine tunisienne dont la tête est mise à prix (pour 5 millions de dollars) par le gouvernement des États-Unis dans son programme de lutte contre le terrorisme.

Les deux islamistes fanatiques sont arrivés à Montréal au début des années 90. Ils ont sans difficulté obtenu le statut de réfugié politique. Devenus citoyens canadiens, ils ont pu voyager facilement à travers le monde pour participer à diverses opérations djihadistes. Continue reading

Beyond Omar Khadr: Enforce Canadian Residency and Citizenship Regulations


Beyond Omar Khadr: Enforce Canadian Residency and Citizenship Regulations

Petition Background (Preamble):

As Canadians deeply concerned with public safety and national security, we
demand federal action in investigating and acting upon residents and
citizens who have misrepresented their ties to terrorist and fundamental
organizations to gain entry and/ or citizenship in Canada.

I own a legal firm north of Toronto and have extensive experience in human
rights tribunals and immigration related litigation.

Omar Khadr, the terrorist convicted of killing American medic Sgt Speer in
Afghanistan, is attempting to return to Canada. His family, who are known
Pakistani terrorist sympathizers, gained Canadian citizenship despite
clear ties to fundamentalist Islamic groups like al Qaeda.

Similarly, Canada is infested with Islamic individuals, groups, and
mosques promoting hatred and genocide.

This year alone, Toronto’s East End Madrassah was caught with anti Semitic
teachings in its curriculum. Additionally, the Walk In Islamic Info
Centre, which advertises in the TTC and in street corner booths, was found
to have website links to preachers promoting genocide and bigotry. Continue reading

Laval: Mouna Diab facing new terrorism charges

Montreal woman faces terrorism charges

Diab arrives at the Montreal courthouse, Wednesday, May 30, 2012, on charges relating to arms smuggling.

A Montreal woman accused of supplying firearms to Lebanon is now facing new terrorism charges, according to RCMP.

Mouna Diab, a 26-year-old from Laval, was charged last October with the illegal export of weapons to Lebanon. Canadians are prohibited from selling arms to anyone in Lebanon, based on a United Nations agreement.

Diab was arrested in May 2011 at Montreal Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau Airport after police discovered parts from AR-15 rifles in her luggage.

Police allege that Diab was acting under the direction of a contact person in Lebanon who is associated with Hezbollah, a Shia militant group that Canada considers a terrorist organization.

Following an RCMP investigation, police also allege that Diab was shipping firearms parts through people in her community travelling to Lebanon and that her victims were unaware of what was in the packages.
