‘Human rights activist’ – wife of Maher Arar – to speak in Kamloops, BC

KAMLOOPS – Human rights activist Dr. Monia Mazigh will be speaking about Muslim woman at Thompson River University later this month.

Mazigh was thrust into the spotlight when she was forced to fight for the release of her husband Maher Arar from a Syrian prison. Arar was detained by the United States when returning back to Canada from a holiday in Tunis. Suspected of being a member of al-Qaeda, the United States sent him to Syria where he was jailed and tortured for over a year.

In the fight to restore her husband’s reputation Mazigh sought reparations. In 2007, after a lengthy inquiry, the Canadian government issued Arar and his family an apology and offered financial compensation.

Mazigh is an author, human rights activist and Tunisian immigrant who came in 1991. She authored a memoir of her ordeal entitled Hope and Despair. Mazigh currently lives in Ottawa with her husband and two children…

    I think Harper should be there and he can count how many more muslims deserve to be pay on his own actions.

  • winniec

    I think she should pay us for the fear and murder and sorrow that her husband caused, the costs to our legal system, and the policing and detective costs of both of them being UNREPENTANT MEMBERS OF A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION.

    • Frau Katze

      Indeed!

  • canminuteman

    I don’t believe any of the Arar story. Non of it rings true at all. I’d bet money he’s up to no good.

    • Justin St.Denis

      He is a fraud at the very least.

      • Canadian

        But a rich fraud!

        • Justin St.Denis

          And? Are you suggesting that fraud, if it leaves one rich, is a good thing? Just wondering.

          • Canadian

            Nope. Just saying that it works.

        It was the hamas linked CAIR that coached Maher to sue Canada after his Lawsuit against JORDAN was tossed out of court.
        I read an article that said she was a palestinian refugee that came to canada not this new story that she was a Tunisian immigrant because she a Alex McDonough were at a pro-hamas rally in Ottawa along with her relatives in Tunisian that had links to a banned Palestinian jihadist group.
        Her story is a big lie because the Inquiry that I followed had the Arar’s fleeing Canada for Tunisia and when the Local Security forces closed in on them it was Maher that ran to the Airport for a flight to the USA that also stopped in Canada later on.
        The FBI had a file on him because of his second home in Boston near one of the 9/11 airports used that day and he went to the now exposed Radical Mosque in Boston tied to jihadists.
        The USA legally refused him entry and noted that he was a young sunni muslim male flying by himself from the middle east on a Canadian Passport.
        Arar told the CBC in 2003 that he was treated well by the US and that only JORDAN would let him on a return flight because Tunisia feared his family would make a Asylum claim to avoid being deported back to Canada .
        Arar said he had a nice flight on a private jet where the food was good and he had his hand cuffs taken off, it was in Jordan that after his wife and kids didn’t show up to meet him he did meet up with men that grabbed him and tortured him for 2 weeks in JORDAN before his return to his homeland of Syria for a military trial as a draft-dodger.

        His wife lied about him being tortured and that the US grabbed him in NY and sent him to Syria to be tortured.
        All of this was in the Arar Inquiry , but the media went with the new lie because in December of 2003 his $25 million Lawsuit against Jordan and Syria was tossed out .
        In was in 2004 that CAIR and their Lawyers file a $400,000,000.00 lawsuit against Canada and demanded an Inquiry .
        It was just one day before the Inquiry report was to come out and expose all of this when Arar got his Lawyers to accept a $10.2 million Tax-free pay off plus his legal costs to muslim lawyers .
        The Arar’s donated back some of that money to CAIR and the UofO legals dept. that provided witnesses to help in his Lawfare .

        The Inquiry was set out to only deal with the time Arar was in Syria and not why he fled Canada or ended up in Jordan.
        They lied and got $10.2 million tax-free and the brain dead Media bought it even after the CBC had in the archives the real story from Maher in 2003 and yet in 2005 the CBC pushed the new lie .
        Sheema khan from CAIR was at the Inquiry to spew CAIR’s bogus islamophobia survey and paint Arar as a victim in all of this.
        Nobody has yet to ask her about the second home in Boston or that Arar had a gun permit back in 1990 , so today the brain dead media paints Omar Khadr as a victim and he too was coached to Sue Canada for Millions.
        CAIR has supported almost every alleged and arrested muslim terrorist , but once they are convicted and in prison we see how CAIR claims they weren’t true muslims.

        • Justin St.Denis

          Great summary. But I seem to remember reading that the Cdn. Govt. is also aware that Arar spent time (two months?) at a training camp in the ME.

          • Gary

            Yes Arar did, and it was so funny because Omar Khadr fingered Arar as being at that camp in Afghanistan for al-qaeda training.
            The media didn’t know what to do when their favourite Muslims both call each other a liar. Now the Media supports Omar as a victim that wouldn’t lie but was forced to in GITMO to get a confession. Yet somehow when Omar exposed Arar at an al-qaeda camp that was fake too even when he wasn’t forced to say it.
            The CBC loved islam and CAIR’s Sheema Khan after 9/11/01 , but in 2009 CAIR was expeosed by the FBI for funding hamas with their donations washed through a bogus islamic charity like Daddy Khadr did to fund terrorism.
            The CBC now looks pretty stupid , plus Jian is a muslim that now fits the misogyny stereo type where he abuse white non-muslims women for kicks while the CBC cover for him. The feminists at NAC are pretty quiet because he’s a fellow jew-hater as is GLAAD that strays quiet over ISIS tossing gays from buildings.

          • Justin St.Denis

            Wow! Now I remember it all The Arar-Khadr connection is what I had forgotten.

            I am also AMAZED that some patriotic vets have not taken care of Maher Arar. Or perhaps Arar spends a lot of his ill-gotten cash on personal security? I am certain Canada spends a lot on tracking Arar – to this very day.

    Check out her ratemyprofessor reviews. The first review was probably written by her.

      They call them a doctor, but never explain what of, in this case
      bullshit voodoo (or as they call it ecomonics, though Adam Smith wouldn’t)

      Anybody can get a Phd, with time and money and a lot of suckup
      in anything that isn’t a science*

      * and i’m not too sure about the science separating the wheat from the
      chaff anymore, seeing the GM, fracking, leftist twits hockey sticking the
      numbers

    • k1962

      I love rate my prof and check it out before my “kids” choose their classes. It is very accurate. I have never seen such an across the board awful rating. Students should pay heed and stay away based on this rating.

      • Rosenmops

        She is not teaching any more. She taught for one year in Kamloops. I guess they can retire on all the $$$ they swindled out of the government.

        When they were in Kamloops I used to she the whole family shopping in Walmart.

        • k1962

          I cannot stand them. It would take all of my willpower to prevent myself from cursing them to their faces if I ran into them.

    • Those are the reviews you could expect for a dumb baghead who bought her degree.

  • Rosenmops

    One million dollars of our hard earned tax money was given to these Muslim traitors.
    I swear to God I would leave Canada if there was anywhere left to run to. Clearly our government hates us.

    • Justin St.Denis

      I believe Arar received in excess of 12 million from the Cdn. Govt.

      • Rosenmops

        Christ on a cracker…12 times worse than I thought. Doesn’t bear thinking of.

      • k1962

        I thought is was 10 million, but don’t know if that is the figure before or after he had to pay his lawyers.

        Why is fugly Monia still working?

        • Rosenmops

          She probably doesn’t work regularly. Just gives speeches. The rest of us have to keep working so they get their 12 millions.

    • Frau Katze

      It would seem that way, all right.

  • Justin St.Denis

    Does Mrs. Arar, in her tome, admit that Maher soent a whole whack of time in a jihadi training facility in the ME? Because the government knows about it but simply could not prove it. It remains one of those “temporal gaps” in Arar’s narrative of allegations of torture etc

  • k1962

    Oh look, she’s still damn ugly. Where is a burka when you need one?
