Montreal father says daughter arrested at airport an ‘innocent victim’

MONTREAL—The father of a Montreal girl targeted in one of several police terror raids conducted Tuesday said his daughter was an “innocent victim” whose mind has been poisoned by radical religious teachings over the last three years.


The man told the Star that the fate of 19-year-old Maha Zibara — arrested May 15 at the Montreal airport while allegedly bound for the ranks of a Syrian terror group such as the Islamic State — is the responsibility of Muslim preacher Adil Charkaoui, a former terror suspect, or those in his entourage at the Assahaba Islamic Community Centre.


They’re always innocent.

Even when they want to join a sadistic murder cult.

    Here’s a thought. If Dad is right and the recruiters are operating out of Assahubaha let’s shut the place down. Sedition is a little know and rarely used offence but certainly worth a try. And while it is wending it’s way through the Courts have the closure of the center a condition of bail. Then send in the forensic auditors to have a look at the books of any and all legal entities associated with the center. Finally, Dad might think of suing the center and the people he thinks waylaid his daughter. A clever tort lawyer should be able to come up with more than a few causes of action and a solid judge just might find that the recruitment attempt in itself was a tort. Yes, it is a legal stretch – but so was product liability.

    The point is to go after these people with what tools we have, shut them down and bankrupt them. (And stripping them of their citizenship is not a bad idea either.)

    Always innocent until they go Jihad and then CAIR claims they aren’t true Muslims. Sheem Khan backed almost every alleged muslims terrorists as innocent and a victim of racial profiling , but once they confess and boast about it for allah’s cause…Khan denies them as muslims.
    She jumped ship from CAIR after it was exposed as funding Hamas, CAIR changed its name but is the same weasels on TV spew taqiyyah .

    If she wore lipstick she wouldn’t be innocent. Then, it would be time to visit the canals of Kingston…

    Why do these radical religious teachings always end up with young Christians at the airport flying off to commit treason?

  • Jim Horne

    When will our politicians, our intelligence agencies and law enforcement start taking what Muslims says as, in fact, what they mean?

    Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan
    ● “The Term ‘Moderate Islam’ Is Ugly And Offensive; There Is No Moderate Islam; Islam Is Islam.”

    ● “The mosques are our barracks, the domes are our helmets, the minarets are our swords, and the faithful are our army.”

    When will radicals Muslims be picked up at the mosque and deported forthwith?

      Unfortunately not until there is revolution and the current power structure replaced with one that is interested in protecting the home country.

    Charkaoui has been the object of deportation proceedings by the gov’t. He should be booted out and his ‘community’ centre shut down. He’s basically a gang leader.

    Since in the Muslim world women are only property, and hence can have no legal independence, he is right from his perspective.

    But this is Canada, and people are accountable for their own actions.

    So I says deport them both – her for being a terrorist, and him for failing to integrate into our culture.
