This is so ridiculous. It’s surprising that Barack Obama didn’t think of it as he toiled to absorb Syrian refugees and illegal aliens. Our socialist, globalist neighbor to the north, Justin Trudeau is trying to carry on where Obama left off.
At least he’s keeping it in Canada, we hope.
Pamela Geller has the story:
ZAKARIA AMARA IS A CONVICTED TERRORIST, SERVING A LIFE SENTENCE FOR HIS ROLE IN A PLOT TO MURDER SCORES OF CANADIANS. AND NOW, THANKS TO A TRUDEAU GOVERNMENT BILL PASSED THROUGH THE SENATE THIS WEEK, AMARA WILL SOON BE GIVEN THE PRIVILEGE OF CANADIAN CITIZENSHIP.
After all, a Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian, right?
This guy is Canadian born, but raised in Jordan and Saudi Arabia. When he returned to Canada as a teen, he became a citizen, but by the time he reached 20, he was serving time for terrorism.
Amara was the ringleader of a sophisticated terrorist cell known as the Toronto 18. He recruited, trained and groomed fellow Islamist extremists and worked towards a deadly terrorist plot.
Amara wanted to detonate bombs in downtown Toronto, and coordinate shooting sprees at the CBC and the Toronto Stock Exchange. He planned to siege Parliament Hill in Ottawa, and carry out executions and beheadings of politicians, including the Prime Minster.
He wanted to mass murder Canadians. And even more so, he wanted to shatter our sense of safety and security. It would have forever changed Canada.
Thankfully, this madman’s plot was foiled by an undercover police sting operation. Amara pled guilty to terrorism charges, and was slapped with a life sentence.
All these extra curricular activities helped to get his citizenship yanked. But Trudeau thinks differently:
Trudeau said during the 2015 election campaign that he believes “terrorists should get to keep their Canadian citizenship.” And now he’s keeping good on that pledge.
Trudeau’s Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen told the Senate that the Liberal government had already initiated the process to restore citizenship to the convicted terrorist.
While Trudeau didn’t mind throwing other campaign promises out the window – modest deficits, electoral reform, legalizing marijuana, and so on – he deemed it a priority to grant citizenship to this convicted terrorist.
Nuts. Just nuts.
