This is a direct result of Justin Trudeau’s disturbing and dangerous hug-a-terrorist strategy.
Abdulrahman El-Bahnasawy was born in Kuwait and said he wanted to “create the next 9/11.”
The Kuwaiti born ISIS supporter with Canadian citizenship was convicted of plotting terrorist attacks against multiple targets in New York City, and is now seeking to return to Canada in order to get ‘treatment’ and ‘counselling,’ in what is a clear reference to the weak hug-a-terrorist policies of Justin Trudeau.
Global News noted that El-Bahnasawy’s request – made through his lawyers – “could test government’s rehabilitation strategy.”
He wants a shorter sentence in the US – where he was convicted – so he can return to Canada and get “help.”
In a letter to a judge in the US as El-Bahnasawy awaits sentencing, the manager of an Islamic centre in Toronto wrote in support of the convicted terrorist plotter:
“We have full faith that with the love and values that his parents raised him with, he will be able to be rehabilitated to be a productive member of society,” Hesham Youssef, who manages a Toronto-area Islamic centre and was once El-Bahnasawy’s teacher, wrote to the judge. “We will actively monitor him and do whatever it takes to assist his family in providing them respite to help deal with this development in their life. We will do whatever it takes to welcome him back and are eager in seeing him and his family be able to thrive again and look past this unfortunate event.”
That “unfortunate event” was El-Bahnasawy trying to undertake what could have been a horrific attack.
And, those same supposed “love and values” led Bahnasawy to proclaim his desire to recreate the worst terrorist attack against our closest ally:
‘“I wanna create the next 9/11,” El Bahnasawy told an undercover agent, to whom he sent bomb-making materials he purchased in Ontario. The attacks were to occur in June 2016, during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.”
As we know, the request by El-Bahnasawy’s lawyers for him to soon return to Canada is a direct result of the pathetically weak and dangerous ISIS “reintegration policy” of Justin Trudeau.
If Canada had a tough approach, with some combination of deportations, the death penalty, stripping of citizenship, and life in prison for those convicted of ISIS plots and being ISIS supporters, Canada would not be seen as a weak and therefore easy place for terror plotters and ISIS members to return to.
Instead, Trudeau has sent a clear message that things like a so-called “community resilience fund” programs for ISIS fighters – including poetry – are what they can expect in Canada, instead of tough measures designed to punish the enemy and protect Canadians.
Canadians have repeatedly shown that they oppose Trudeau’s idea of trying to “reintegrate” ISIS fighters. Yet, he refuses to listen, and pushes a policy that even the Public Safety minister thinks is unlikely to work.
Trudeau’s weakness puts all of us at risk, and now, another terrorist plotter wants to enter our country to get the red carpet treatment at taxpayer expense.
