Concordia bomb threat suspect was a Concordia PHD Student from Lebanon

The man charged in connection with Wednesday’s bomb threats at Concordia University, Hisham Saadi, was a PhD student in economics there, according to the man who sublet Saadi his apartment.

Speaking to CBC’s French-language network, Radio-Canada, under the condition of anonymity, the man said he had met Saadi at Concordia to pick up a rent cheque.

He said Saadi is of Lebanese origin.

“I think he has [Canadian] citizenship,” he said. “He has been here for many years.”

More… Hisaham Saadi appeared briefly at the Montreal courthouse Thursday afternoon via video conference from Bordeaux Prison to face charges of inciting fear of terrorist activities, issuing a death threat and interrupting the students and personnel of Concordia University from their activities.

Not much is known about his background, it is possible he is a Christian. There is little love lost between Lebanese Christians and Muslims. That said it may be that the links below are the breadcrumbs needed to track down his political  sympathies… A comment left on an anti-Israeli blog “Tadamon” is telling if it proves legit.

Found on Facebook Pic 1 Link.  No idea idea if legit or not.

Pic 2 Link – again no idea if this legit but evidence is mounting…

On the 6th day, the Israeli genocide continues. Yesterday, eight Canadian citizens were brutally massacred by Israeli bombers. At this crucial moment in our lives, it is important to protest against Mr. Harper’s shameful position and to show our government that Lebanese blood is as precious as Israeli blood. We ask all Lebanese, our Arab colleagues, and all the friends of our fellow Canadians in Quebec, to attend massively to the next demonstration in Montreal this Tuesday 5 pm at Dorchester Square. Residents from other provinces are asked to show up elsewhere in the country. Your symbolic presence will be a great psychological and moral support to our resisters and to the civilian population that is suffering and, unfortunately, will continue to pay the price of international silence to the crimes against humanity that Israel is committing.

  • He may be a Christian.

    • Ho Hum

      That was my first thought when I read he was from Lebanon. Lots of Christians there. If he is Muslim I wonder if he is a member of the MSA at the University. Unfortunately we will never get the answer to these questions. This will be chocked up to “white supremacists”

    • Starlord

      Does it matter? He isn’t a back bacon, maple syrup, beer swilling old stock Canadian… which doesn’t fit the narrative the
      Sjw wanted yesterday. Oh they so wanted a white English speaking white guy to be the suspect. Kalhid Omar and the gang were probably frothing in glee until this came out…

    • Alain

      Possibly but probably not.

    • WalterBannon

      who is anti-Israeli and pro fakeastininan?

    • Will Quest

      Hisham is Arabic & not a Christian name …….. chances are he follows the ideology of Arabs

  • Watchman

    “Hisham Saadi, was a PhD student in economics”

    See, poverty does cause terrorism!

  • Ho Hum

    Hisham is an Arabic given name. From Wikipedia notable people named Hisham seem to be Muslim.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hisham_(name)

    • I asked a Copt friend and he says the Arabic names are really is too little to go on. Some names are distinctly Christian in the ME but not all.

  • deplorabledave

    I recall reading that”christians” in muslim countries hate Jews as much as the death cultists.

    • Some do.

    • caliroxanne

      Yes they do. I’ve encountered many of them. They are Arabs, first and foremost and share the Islamo-Arab worldview. It just goes to show you how strong Jew hatred is. Even though Israel is the best place in the ME for Christians, and the only place there where the Christian population is growing and Christians live in safety, freedom and prosperity, they proudly and arrogantly share the Islamic worldview. They’d rather side with Islam than acknowledge that Jews and Israel aren’t so bad. And, no, it is not out of fear, it stems from a shared worldview. I’ve observed this in Los Angeles, London and other Western cities. Remember when Ted Cruz was booed at an Arab Christian event when he mentioned Israel? Sure, there are some Arab Christians, such as Brigitte Gabriel who are the exception not the rule. Additionally, it’s not just Jews and Israel they oppose, they also share the Obama, Jeremiah Wright hatred of Western society in general.

    His vibrancy made our lives more diverse.

    This morning I heard the 640 am radio hosts quickly link this to Trump as they also did for the alleged Mosque vandalism and attacks on Jewish temples in the USA.
    But the Leftists and islamophiles , like Tory and Wynne , just don’t get that Trump didn’t spew hatred at jews that would incite the attacks on their temples.

    It sounds like they are trying to shift the blame from the jew-hating muslims that are angry at Trump because he had a jewish person in his family while his daughter converted to marry the person.
    This is just as stupid as when Hillary claimed that the Russians helped Trump win while she got the popular vote .

    • Evidence is slowly mounting which if legit would put him squarely within the “Anti-Israel” camp.

      • WalterBannon

        so unless he is a “united church” christian he is probably a muslim

        • Alain

          You mean there is a difference?

        • Not necessarily but certainly a lefty anti-Zionist type, just as bad’)

  • Coupal

    The name “Hisham” is muslim I think. I know a guy by that name and he is muslim.

    • I suspect he is, just as I suspect this bomb hoax was a false flag intended to drum up empathy for Islam and smear critics of that horrid cult. However without definitive proof it is best to err on the side of caution for now as I am sure we will learn all we need to know later.

  • Going down the memory hole in five, four…

    Remember – Concordia and York both passed BDS resolutions.

  • simus1

    The old joke once was that the Lebanese Christians and muslims got along so well because the muslims knew how to grow opium in the Beqaa Valley and the Christians knew how to make heroin, then smuggle it overseas to Europe and America.
