Muslim arrested after plotting to bomb U.S. consulate in Toronto: CBSA

TORONTO — A Pakistani man arrested by immigration officials this week is an ISIS supporter who had plotted to bomb financial buildings and the U.S. consulate in Toronto, the Canada Border Service Agency alleged at a hearing Wednesday.

Jhanzab Malik, who came to Canada as a student in 2004, told an undercover police officer he had attended training camps in Libya and wanted to build an explosive device to conduct attacks in Toronto, the CBSA said.

Believing the undercover officer was a veteran of combat in Bosnia, he attempted to recruit him by showing him ISIS beheading videos and encouraging him to watch the lectures of al Qaida figure Anwar Al-Awlaki.

He was arrested on Monday following what the CBSA called a “lengthy investigation” by the RCMP Integrated National Security Enforcement Team in Toronto. He faces no criminal charges at this point but is being deported.

More at the Globe: “A federal Canadian tribunal has been told that a Toronto man was trying to hatch a terrorist conspiracy to attack the U.S. consulate and other buildings in Toronto’s financial district.

Jahanzeb Malik was arrested March 9 and taken into custody by the Canada Border Service Agency. The government has initiated a bid to deport him to his home country of Pakistan, and has not charged him with criminal offences.”

    Terrorists should be executed whether they successfully carried out their plots or not.

    • Not in Canada, they become Liberal candidates.

    He planned to attack a US consulate.
    Can’t the US be prevailed upon to ask for his extradition?
    It worked out well for the UK with Abu “hooky” Hamza and Haroon Asswipe Aswat.

    • Good idea;)

    Alice More: Arrest him!More: Why, what has he done?Margaret More: He’s bad!More: There is no law against that.Will Roper: There is! God’s law!More: Then God can arrest him.Alice: While you talk, he’s gone!More: And go he should, if he was the Devil himself, until he broke the law!Roper: So now you’d give the Devil benefit of law!More: Yes. What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?Roper: I’d cut down every law in England to do that!More: Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned ’round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country’s planted thick with laws from coast to coast– man’s laws, not God’s– and if you cut them down—and you’re just the man to do it—do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I’d give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety’s sake.

    Jason Kenny was proudly boasting about the increased number of mohammedan immigrants in the last 10 years of conservative government. I wonder what he has to say about this scum?? Pakistan sends the largest contingents of these mohammedan invaders each year.
    I hope we Canadians wake-up sooner & charge all these politicians under treason act.

  • Every Moslem is a potential terrorist because the pseudo-religion called Islam encourages the practice of terrorism, so its only a matter of time till an individual Moslem decides to practice what is preached to him (or her).

    This piece of work is going to be deported. I assume back to Pakistan. One can expect it to be arriving back very soon, going through Canadian customs with his passport and a welcome to Canada. Line to left is for applications for social assistance. Line to right is for reformed terrorists. No muslim who arrives goes to THAT line.

    My comment was actually allowed on the CBC story about the niqab debate — “Seventy percent of the airtime of every news cast in Canada for the last year has been, directly or indirectly, about Islam. People are starting to understand this creature. Finally.” I also got into a little fracas with a feminist and accused her of being a member of a phoney movement, and that she should read and youtube the indomitable Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Duty done for today.
