Jihad in Canuckistan
So much for a return on investment. Or gratitude. That’s generally the problem with jizya. “Canadian on welfare linked to prominent terrorists: Documents,” by Andrew McIntosh forÂ QMI, May 10 (thanks to Paul):
MONTREALÂ – A Montreal man has collected Quebec government welfare cheques for almost 20 years, even as he criss-crossed Europe to meet six other men who’ve since been either killed, convicted or linked to global terrorism, lawyers for theRCMPÂ andÂ CSISÂ allege.Read more from JW: Â Muslim on welfare

Misunderstander of Islam in Toronto pleads guilty to plotting mass murder for his god. “Toronto 18 ringleader pleads guilty in terror trial,” by Isabel Teotonio for theÂ Toronto Star, May 10 (thanks to JW):
In a surprise about-turn, Fahim Ahmad, the ringleader of the so-called Toronto 18 has pleaded guilty.The reversal of his plea was revealed Monday morning to jurors in what is a landmark trial — the first terrorism case in Canada to be decided by a jury.
Ahmad, described both as a “time bomb waiting to go off” and a “fantasist,” wanted to attack nuclear stations and storm Parliament, taking politicians hostage until they gave into his demands to pull troops from Afghanistan…. Â Read more:Â “wanna cut off some heads?”
U.K.: Jihadist who called for assassination of prime ministers and “huge attacks on centres and places of benefit to the crusaders” pleads guilty
An update onÂ Ishaq Kanmi, whose “loyalty to his form of Islam exceeds his loyalty to this country.”
Kamni’s statement regarding his loyalty is right in line with a declaration made by Organization of the Islamic Conference Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu in a speech at Columbia University on Sept. 18, 2008:
The Muslim Ummah, means the ‘community of the faithful’. It is a unique bond that has no similar example under any other political or religious system in the world. It is a belonging to ideals which bring Muslims together in an eternal brotherhood lock which transcends all other consideration of allegiance or loyalties or barriers of nationhood, ethnicity, geography or language.

Hollywood does a better job of cranking out Muslim propaganda than do Muslims. (Phylis Chesler)
Jihad is an obligation from Allah onÂ every Muslim and cannot be ignored nor evaded.Â (Islam in Europe)
YUSUFALI: Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book,Â until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
Another excuse that I hear frequently is that Muslims are nowhere near the majority in the West. This does not matter though, as they never stop pushing, and the Koran instructs them that they do not have to be anywhere the majority to defeat the enemy. More
The Jihadists’ Deadly Path to Citizenship
Michelle Malkin on the marriage racket that allows jihadists to settle behind enemy lines:
America’s homeland security amnesia never ceases to amaze. In the aftermath of the botched Times Square terror attack over the weekend, Pakistani-born bombing suspect Faisal Shahzad’s U.S. citizenship status caused a bit of shock and awe. The Atlantic magazine writer Jeffrey Goldberg’s response was typical: “I am struck by the fact that he is a naturalized American citizen, not a recent or temporary visitor.” Well, wake up and smell the deadly deception.
Shahzad’s path to American citizenship â€” he reportedly married an American woman, Huma Mian, in 2008 after spending a decade in the country on foreign student and employment visas â€” is a tried-and-true terror formula. Jihadists have been gaming the sham marriage racket with impunity for years. And immigration benefit fraud has provided invaluable cover and aid for U.S.-based Islamic plotters, including many other operatives planning attacks on New York City. As I’ve reported previously:
â€” El Sayyid A. Nosair wed Karen Ann Mills Sweeney to avoid deportation for overstaying his visa. He acquired U.S. citizenship, allowing him to remain in the country, and was later convicted for conspiracy in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing that claimed six lives.
â€” Ali Mohamed became an American citizen after marrying a woman he met on a plane trip from Egypt to New York. Recently divorced, Linda Lee Sanchez wed Mohamed in Reno, Nev., after a six-week “courtship.” Mohamed became a top aide to Osama bin Laden and was later convicted for his role in the 1998 United States embassy bombings in Africa that killed 12 Americans and more than 200 others.
â€” Embassy bombing plotter Khalid Abu al Dahab obtained citizenship after marrying three different American women.
â€” Embassy bombing plotter Wadih el Hage, Osama bin Laden’s personal secretary, married April Ray in 1985 and became a naturalized citizen in 1989. Ray knew of her husband’s employment with bin Laden, but like many of these women in bogus marriages, she pleaded ignorance about the nature of her husband’s work. El Hage, she says, was a sweet man, and bin Laden “was a great boss.”
â€” Lebanon-born Chawki Youssef Hammoud, convicted in a Hezbollah cigarette-smuggling operation based out of Charlotte, N.C., married American citizen Jessica Fortune for a green card to remain in the country.
â€” Hammoud’s brother, Mohammed Hammoud, married three different American women. After arriving in the United States on a counterfeit visa, being ordered deported and filing an appeal, he wed Sabina Edwards to gain a green card. Federal immigration officials refused to award him legal status after this first marriage was deemed bogus in 1994. Undaunted, he married Jessica Wedel in May 1997 and, while still wed to her, paid Angela Tsioumas (already married to someone else, too) to marry him in Detroit. The Tsioumas union netted Mohammed Hammoud temporary legal residence to operate the terror cash scam. He was later convicted on 16 counts that included providing material support to Hezbollah.
â€” A total of eight Middle Eastern men who plotted to bomb New York landmarks in 1993 â€” Fadil Abdelgani, Amir Abdelgani, Siddig Ibrahim Siddig Ali, Tarig Elhassan, Abdo Mohammed Haggag, Fares Khallafalla, Mohammed Saleh, and Matarawy Mohammed Said Saleh â€” all obtained legal permanent residence by marrying American citizens.
A year after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, homeland security officials cracked a massive illegal alien Middle Eastern marriage fraud ring in a sting dubbed “Operation Broken Vows.” Authorities were stunned by the scope of the operations, which stretched from Boston to South Carolina to California. But marriage fraud remains a treacherous path of least resistance. The waiting period for U.S. citizenship is cut by more than half for marriage visa beneficiaries. Sham marriage monitoring by backlogged homeland security investigators is practically nonexistent.
As former federal immigration official Michael Cutler warned years ago: “Immigration benefit fraud is certainly one of the major ‘dots’ that was not connected prior to the attacks of September 11, 2001, and remains a ‘dot’ that is not really being addressed the way it needs to be in order to secure our nation against criminals and terrorists who understand how important it is for them to ‘game’ the system as a part of the embedding process.”
Jihadists have knowingly and deliberately exploited our lax immigration and entrance policies to secure the rights and benefits of American citizenship while they plot mass murder â€” and we haven’t done a thing to stop them.
Pukistan feels “pressurized”
Pakistan’s efforts to wrest its frontier provinces from jihadist control may be compared to a child who is trying to get out of cleaning his or her room by doing as half-hearted a job as possible: Put a few things away; how about now? No? Straighten up a few more things; now? No? And the reluctant participant actually starts to look serious for a while, but nonetheless keeps his or her eye out for that magic milestone of progress known as “good enough for now.”
Of course, the analogy breaks down where the hypothetical youngster probably isn’t crafty enough to keep demanding more resources, purportedly for the task at hand, butnot entirely. “Pakistan under pressure after NY car bomb,” by Chris Brummitt for theAssociated Press, May 10/Paks “under pressure”
