ISIS and Al-Qaeda: The Muslim Jihadist Organizations or the Covert Projects of Mossad and CIA?

Terrorism has engulfed the whole globe but it has played havoc in the Muslim world. The world has known famous and notorious terrorist organizations i.e.AL-QAEDA and ISIS has made the gulf a real battleground. The blood bathing of this area is not a hidden story anymore. Al-Qaeda and ISIS -both following the Salafist ideology- have brought Iraq and Syria to ruins. These are the terrorist outfits aspiring to establish a caliphate. They are self-proclaimed jihadist organizations, however, acting contradictory from the true ideology of jihad in Islam.

What He Meant to Say Was …

Let the Great Cover-Up begin:

CBC News has learned a Canadian man who says he spent time in Syria with ISIS and committed violent acts was interviewed by the RCMP this week.

He was neither arrested nor charged with any offences, and was allowed to return home.

There were angry questions in the House of Commons earlier this month, when Conservative House leader Candice Bergen asked the Trudeau government why the man is freely being allowed to live here.

“This guy is apparently in Toronto. Canadians deserve more answers from this government,” she said. “Why aren’t they doing something about this despicable animal that’s walking around the country?” 

The man is known publicly as Abu Huzaifa al-Kanadi (Abu Huzaifa the Canadian). Details of his story have been a study in contradictions — not only for police but for the journalists covering him.

He says he travelled to Syria in 2014 to join ISIS, and fled months later in disillusionment with their violent tactics. And, depending on who he’s talking to, he either witnessed killings in the name of jihad, or carried them out himself.

The man gave two very different accounts of his time with ISIS to CBC News and the New York Times. The contradictions only came to light after both news organizations published their stories.

Florida: Three Palm Beach County Muslims sentenced for providing material to support to ISIS

Gregory Hubbard, 54, an ex-Marine, was arrested at Miami International Airport in July 2016 attempting to travel to Syria and fight on behalf of the Islamic State. He will receive 12 years in prison, the Justice Department announced.

Two co-defendants who plotted to provide guns and other help to the Islamic State received lesser sentences. Dayne Christian, 33, and Darren Arness Jackson, 52, were sentenced to eight and four years, respectively. Jackson drove Hubbard to the airport, prosecutors said.

FUREY: Toronto ISIS returnee is laughing at us – something must be done

There’s a guy walking about freely in Toronto bragging to the media about going abroad to join the Islamic State. He’s told The New York Times he killed people (executed them in the head, to be precise). Although he’s walked that part back.

The Government’s plan to deal with returning ISIS fighters is online and it’s terrible

According to government plans which were acquired through a Global News freedom of information request, the most frightening aspect of these returning ISIS fighters is the fact that government plans are fairly limited.


EXCLUSIVE: Canada’s plan for managing the return of ISIS fighters revealed in documents

Disclosed under the Access to Information Act, the documents are a stark assessment of the prospects that former ISIS fighters like Ali will ever face criminal charges upon their return to Canada, saying terrorism investigations are among the most difficult the RCMP conducts.

Ninety-Six Percent of Border Crossings are Through Quebec

Oui:

Quebec continues to receive the overwhelming majority of asylum seekers in Canada, with 96 per cent of illegal crossings into the country so far in 2018 happening at its border with the United States, according to recent RCMP statistics.

The rapid increase in the number is spurring calls from politicians in the province and community groups for Ottawa to change an agreement with the United States they say is encouraging people to get into Canada outside official ports of entry.

Out of 7,612 people who crossed illegally into the country during the first four months of the year, 7,307 came into Quebec — 2,479 in April alone, a 32 per cent increase from March.

Manitoba and British Columbia received the remainder, with about 150 asylum seekers each entering those provinces so far in 2018.

The Quebec government said projections suggested there could be as many as 400 crossings per day this summer, compared to 250 in 2017.

Andrea Horwath wants Ontario to be a sancutary province.

The NDP said those exact words in a January 31, 2017 press release titled “Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath to Premir Wynne: Declare Ontario a “Sanctuary Province.”‘

Here’s what the release said about making Ontario a “sanctuary province”:

“Ontario can and must also step up and lead. In addition, I urge you to declare Ontario to be a sanctuary province. In recent years, cities like Toronto and Hamilton have shown tremendous leadership by making local services accessible to all residents, regardless of their immigration status. Now, our province must do the same. We must guarantee that services will always be accessible to everyone in Ontario.”

 

And:

According to a Global News report based on government documents detailing how Canada deals with returning ISIS terrorists, the government works to facilitate the return of the terrorists to Canadian territory, and has laws that aren’t crafted to successfully punish those who left our country to fight for an evil enemy.

The report casts doubt on whether returning ISIS terrorists will be charged, saying of those investigations “Often, they require evidence of an individual’s activity in foreign conflict zones, or rely on information provided by partners that we are not authorized to disclose in court,” according to the documents. “The RCMP also faces challenges in collecting digital evidence, including access to encrypted communications.”

Opinion: “If self-confessed ISIL killer is not held accountable, who will be?”

John Ivison is normally a water-carrier for the Liberals but he raises some interesting points here:

Abu Huzaifa al-Kanadi, his nom de guerre, talked in a disconcertingly bland North American accent about being taught how to behead people. “You had to know how to slice a head off,” he said.

He then depicted a group execution, in which he shot a middle-aged Muslim man in the back of the head. “It’s justified – you’re not going to be held accountable,” he said he told himself.

On another occasion, he took part in a community killing, stabbing a drug dealer in the heart. “The blood was warm and it sprayed everywhere,” he said. “I had to stab him multiple times.” 

He said the second killing left him feeling “disgusted” and determined to return to his parents in Canada. He escaped to Turkey, and then on to his grandparents’ home in Pakistan. He eventually made his way home to Canada, telling immigration authorities at the airport that he’d spent the past 10 months at university in Pakistan. “I said it in a way so that it didn’t seem I was lying,” he said.

The only positive in all this is that he said he would never return to a life of violence. “No, I’ve come too far from it,” he said.

But, regardless of his conversion to a more harmonious world-view, it should not be overlooked that there is a self-confessed killer on the loose in Canada’s biggest city – one who lied to immigration officials to get into the country. …

The Charter changes everything in Canada. British defence secretary Gavin Williamson sparked a debate in the U.K. after he said a “dead terrorist can’t cause any harm to Britain”. Opinion polls suggested that 35 per cent of Britons felt jihadis should be treated as enemy combatants, making them legitimate targets, 42 per cent favoured stripping them of citizenship and only 11 per cent said they should be brought home to face sentencing and rehabilitation.

With the first two options off the table for the Canadian government, prosecution, monitoring and rehabilitation are the only tools left in the kit.

The vast majority of Canadians favour prosecution but cautious intelligence agencies and wary prosecutors mean the Public Prosecution Service has only charged two individuals to date.

The Huzaifa case is surely an opportunity to improve that strike rate.

Contrary to his own assertion as he pulled the trigger, the law demands he is held accountable.

If the justice system won’t prosecute in such an apparent slam-dunk case, what chance convictions in more contentious litigation?
