    But where will I get my weekly dose of crazy? I may have to read Malick but it’s just not the same.

      I’m sure the Star is already interviewing every muslim fanatic in the country to take his place.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Omar Khadr. Just give the Star a bit of time…

          Don’t give the Red Star and Crescent any ideas.

        • Jay Currie

          Don’t give them ideas…

        Two tons, I mean, two words: Libby Davies.

    • It is a loss we all must bear.

      They’re both very ‘special’ in their own way …

    Those damn Harperites must be behind it. Or maybe the Jews or global warming. Or maybe Justin promised him a job when he becomes PM.

  • Tom Forsythe

    But his name is so fun to say, especially if you emphasize the “oooooo.”

    An ongoing trend of jihad-enablers quitting en masse is devoutly to be hoped for.

    Who in Canada regularly read this guy? Looked forward to his column? Were influenced by his thoughts?

    Was he ever anything but an equal opportunity hire by the socialist families who control the Star and perpetuate its Atkinson Principles. – a visible minority hire for which they could pat themselves on the back?

      Wait! Today’s April Fools – all jokes have to be by noon, right?

        Those used to be the rules…

        Great minds think alike.

        If true, may the streak of good news keep coming.

        • I notice he has no favourable comments to date;)

            His fans are probably preparing long missives of love that take a considerable amount of time to get exactly right before uploading.

    Is ISIS getting another volunteer?

      No one will cry if Haroon goes ‘ka-boom’… 😉

  • cmh

    they didn’t even spell it right….immigrant or french cake shop?

  • Gary

    Just put a nice big 30 on the cake and then ….Thank God.

  • eMan14

    Can we have a party to celebrate?

  • Reader

    Are there any bookies who read this blog?

    I am wondering what odds are being given on the Toronto Star replacing Haroon Siddiqui with each of the following:
    Omar Khadr
    Zafar Bangash
    Khaled Mouammar
    Mohammad Reza Naqdi
    Fadlo Mekail
    Mahmoud Jasser
    Anjem Choudary
    Sharmeen Khan
    Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi
    John Greyson
