Default Canadian terror suspect was born in the UAE

Born in the UAE to Palestinian parents, the family of Raed Jaser emigrated to Canada 20 years ago as refugees, and was recently granted permanent residency.

The other alleged co-conspirator is of Tunisian origin. Both stand accused of planning to derail a train bound from Canada to the US.

What is interesting , and quite telling, is that the UAE did not grant their fellow Arab & Muslim permanent residency, rather it was a majority Christian country that did. Where's the Arab & Muslim brotherly love....

If the Arab nations make them citizens they can't bang on about how many refugees they have in country. Not forgetting the fact that they don't want Palestinian emaratis etc

Would that be because it doesn't really exist?

I love the Judges response:-

Mr Esseghaier told a Toronto court on Wednesday "we know that this criminal code is not a holy book. It's just written by a set of creations and the creations... are not perfect because only the creator is perfect."

The judge told him to "save that for another court", and to take his lawyers' advice.


In other words, save it for someone that gives a shit.

If that existed the Arabs who were told to leave when the modern state of Israel was declared by their fellow Arabs because they were going to wipe out the Jews (well that went well didn't it?) would have been fully absorbed into Jordan, Egypt and Lebanon instead of being used as a proxy weapon for the last 60 years.

Another good example of their brotherly love would be Saddam's invasion of Kuwait. Can't really blame the jooos on that one (am sure they can actually - maybe the zionists put something in the water...not the water the Marsh Arabs lived on though ahem)

I actually commend the UAE for not giving permanent residency to these people. We are utterly stupid to do so in the West. They do not integrate, do not like us and will turn on us in an instant as we are seeing over and over and over again. Our tolerance has become apathy and weakness.

I actually have a question which I think no one can answer it here except you . Is there such a thing as an Anglo-Saxon Jew?

I expect you'll be hearing from Enoch Powell's lawyers in regards to copyright infringement....

Apart from that- wow the only two Arab Canadians in Canada turn out to be secret terrorist sleeper cells. Who would have thought? All of the Arab Canadians are The Enemy.

Oh yeah, is that right? There are more than two Arab Canadians in Canada?
What? More than 400,000? Really?
And they aren't all terrorists?

Just two out of 400,000?
So that's 0.0001% ?
