The Precedent Has Been Set

And one is familiar with who set it:

The oldest are probably just toddlers, innocents born into one of the most reviled terrorist movements in the world.

And very soon, they could be the responsibility of the federal government.

The children of Canadian members of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant form part of a potentially explosive dilemma confronting federal officials. As ISIL teeters on the brink of military defeat, what should the government do when and if Canadian members of ISIL are captured?

Some experts say Ottawa has no choice but to try to repatriate and prosecute in Canada any detained members, ensuring they aren’t tortured or otherwise mistreated by local forces. As for those ISIL children, if they have one Canadian parent, they would be citizens and, lawyers say, deserve help.

“The government has absolutely no choice but to protect the Charter rights of these Canadians,” said Lorne Dawson, a University of Waterloo professor who has extensively studied radicalized youth.

    The Liberal Party of Canada was created to relentlessly rape the Canadian taxpayer, over and over again.

      Islamic State supporters should face local justice (such as it is) first, but Trudeau will secure their release to Canada by using taxpayers’ money for bribes. That’ll be just the first expenditure on them.

    Bullet to the head. Euthanasia for the kids (out of kindness).

      How ’bout that hair though?

      • Baldness is hereditary, I’m told.

          usually through the mothers side, so look at maggies male relatives.

        It’s so amazing, any way ya cut it.

      Omg. I hate living in a country where almost 1/2 the population are imbeciles.

      • Imbeciles and child rape apologists, apparently.

        That’s Liberal voters for you.

  • k1962

    Hey, maybe we can set up some schools to reeducate the little buggers.

    • Bla Bla

      I believe they call those detention camps.

      • k1962

        But for children, to try to get them to unlearn all the hate and violent behaviour their horrible, psychopathic parents taught them.

        • Bla Bla

          Which means keeping them away from the liberals/ndp/greens in canada.

  • Think of all the child rapists who will walk the streets:

    If Canadians aren’t appalled enough by Khadr or this then they deserve every bad thing that happens.

  • Bla Bla

    Unbelievable. They are genocidal maniacs who do not fall under any protections offered by the Geneva conventions. But hey, traitors got to do what traitors got to do.

      If they bring them here, I hope that there will be groups of activists looking to ID and bring former ISIS terrorists to justice for their crimes.

      ISIS terrorists are like Axis war criminals from WWII, and need to be treated as such…

      • Bla Bla

        Indeed – agreed.

  • UCSPanther

    After WWII, many German war criminals who did show their faces in Canada often had to keep a low profile in order to evade both prosecution and possible retaliation from former victims looking for revenge.

    One story I heard, was a former SS guard got a job in a logging camp in Northern BC, hoping to escape his dark past and deeds. However, upon arriving at the camp, a former concentration camp inmate recognized and charged at him, determined to repay him for his cruelty. The camp boss had to get the former SS out of there, knowing that many of the workers sympathized with the former inmate, and that if he stayed, he would end up vanishing without a trace into the forest…

    Sure they can be repatriated to a Canadian military base and face military justice and the promptly hung for being both traitors and illegal combatants. The kids those aged less than 7 years be sent to foster families. Those aged 7 and over lifetime psychological oversight to ensure that they’re not psychos or sociopaths. If they are institutionalize them and see if the damage can be mitigated.

    If you commit a crime in a foreign country you don’t get repatriated, do you? However, given “it’s 2017” I fully expect Trulander greeting them at the airport very soon.
