Seeing Eye Dogs Are Haram! Omar Khadr losing his eyesight, lawyer says

Former Guantanamo detainee Omar Khadr is losing his eyesight and is no longer able to read or see clearly, according to his lawyer and educators who meet with him weekly in an Alberta prison.

The 28-year-old was blinded in his left eye during a 2002 firefight with U.S. special forces in Afghanistan, where he was shot and captured.

His lawyer, Dennis Edney, said Wednesday that Khadr is now almost blind in his right eye as well and likely will need to see a specialist and have surgery.

“It has happened pretty quickly,” Edney said

    Thanks to his criminal record, terrorist background and poor health he’s unemployable, guess who is going to support him?

    • How nice for us.

        Just makes you want to break into a rousing chorus of O Canada, doesn’t it? No, me neither.

          I bet Shiny Pony wants to pardon him. He needs him to be his new Minister of Immigration.

            he’s blind and a murderous islamist, i am sure justin would want him more as a backroom type with his brother and all the other flakes.

      It would be a fitting end for that scumbag.

    Wasn’t there a bunch of idiots in Dearbornistan or somewhere similar supposedly training miniture horses as halal seeing eye animals?

    • I think so.

    • JUILLE

      You’re right, I saw the video on line a while back. Dogs being haram in the religion of peace ,a miniature horse wearing a diaper ,helping a blind muslim school girl navigate on the school bus.The fastest growing religion? forced conversions, death to apostate,half of the followers are women ,in sharia controlled countries ,1 woman=1 goat.That cuts down on their bragging rights.

      Can we train seeing eye pigs?

  • Allan L

    Oh my G*d!! I’m going to lose milliseconds of sleep over this.

    Oh gosh, that’s just awful. I kick in to help buy him a seeing eye dog.

      And he wouldn’t accept it!

    We’ll never see eye to eye. We are right. He is wrong.

    The liberals and ndp will be debating in parliament today on whether he should get veterans benefits and the order of Canada.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Reading is mostly haram anyway.

    …as long as he can still tell the cabbie an address, and keep a good grip on a suicide belt plunger, he can still be a useful lamb of Allah, Insha’allah.

    “No, it’s just a new brand of tie, Mr. Khadr. Hold on while I tighten that a bit better. Right—oh no! I forgot all about that trapdoor!”

  • YesWeCan

    May be it was Allah’s wish. Praise to Allah the most cunning and the most deceiving.

    • Exile1981

      He keeps telling the media that Allah is all powerful then I say we let Allah take care of him from now on. Allah can provide his food and water and medical treatment; there are dozens of Canadians who would volunteer to help arrange his meeting with his god so he can ask in person.

    Allah works in mysterious ways. Too bad it wasn’t a fellow inmate who shived the son of a bitch.

    High powered laser surgery would cure the problem.

    “The widow of a U.S. special forces soldier killed in Afghanistan and an American soldier blinded by a grenade are suing Canada’s Omar Khadr for close to $45 million, The Canadian Press has learned.

    In the lawsuit filed Thursday in Utah, Tabitha Speer and Sgt. Layne Morris allege Khadr, then 15, was responsible for the death of Sgt. Christopher Speer and Morris’s injuries in July 2002.” Canadian Press

    Sgt. Christopher Speer’s family haven’t seen him since 2002. Sgt. Morris hasn’t seen his family since 2002.

    Omar Khadr can rot in hell.

    • Exile1981

      The good side of that is any money he earns suing the Canadian gov’t will go to those families and not be available for him to funnel to his terror buddies. The bad news is if the court case goes forward while he is incarcerated then the Canadian tax payer will be on the hook for his legal bills (but not the settlement amount).

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    I’d rather see Khadr in a Provincial Bucket, rather than a Federal one. More punks there, doing short time, 2 years less a day, for him to get into trouble with.

  • Edubeat

    Why don’t we just send him back to fight for ISIS. Mr.Radical would last less than 24 hours.

  • ntt1

    the local flea market is full of cast off canes (miraculous?) one can be had for a few bucks and who doesn’t have left over white paint? Canadians should be proud to hand craft a white cane for this blinded terrorist, and it could be done for under 5 bucks.
