Shooting victim has link to alleged terrorist

One of two men who were shot in a west-end restaurant Sunday is an Algonquin student who has a bizarre connection to an alleged terror recruiter and financier.

Ayyub Arab, 22, was shot inside the Shifa Restaurant in the neighbourhood behind Ikea late Sunday afternoon. His cousin Marwan Arab, 20, took a bullet to his head and died almost instantly.

Ayyub, who was in stable condition at The Ottawa Hospital Monday afternoon, is listed as a secretary on the executive of Algonquin’s Muslim Students’ Association. There it’s believed he met Awso Peshdary, 25, who was charged by RCMP almost a year ago with participating in the activity of a terrorist group, facilitating an activity for a terrorist group, and conspiring to participate or to contribute in an activity of a terrorist group.

    Not sure which saying is more apt here: “Live by the sword, die by the sword”, or, “If you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas”.

    According to the left it is now racist to use the word muslim when talking about what did happen.

    I quote “bizarre connection” by the journalist…
    Ie markedly unusual or strange…

    What is bizarre about a Muslim student association official chumming with a muzzie the RCMP are accusing of terrorist type activity ?
