They’re b-a-a-a-ck.

Two suspected ISIS sympathizers are back in Ontario, according to published reports.

Truth North said Pamir Hakimzadah — a former Ryerson student — was sprung from a Canadian prison on May 24 — even though he was deemed an “undue risk to society.”

He reportedly tried to join the death cult in 2014 but was nabbed after travelling to Turkey where he was jailed for six months.

He allegedly said that “all non-Muslims should be killed.”

He spoke either in favour of or in defence of ISIS. He viewed online ISIS content such as videos and posts. He also viewed a website that provided instructions on how to get into Syria,” a Crown lawyer involved in the case told True North.

Hakimzadah was nabbed by counter-terrorist agents and later dumped back into Canada’s lap.

 

Back home, prosecutors wanted a six-year sentence in a federal slammer for his alleged crimes, but last February, a judge sentenced him to six months in prison, giving him credit for the three years and seven months he already spent in custody. The sentencing came after he pleaded guilty to leaving Canada to participate in the activity of a terrorist group.

His time in prison was to be followed by three years of probation with a number of conditions, including undergoing psychotherapy, not possessing a gun or passport and undergoing “de-radicalization counselling.”

But according to True North, it took three years for Canada to arrest and charge Hakimzadah for travelling abroad to join Islamic State.

He was charged as a result of an unrelated assault.

Meanwhile, another Ontario man who was jailed in Turkey for three months is under a slew of court-ordered conditions because of “fear of [a] terrorism offence.”

CBC News reports that Ikar Mao, 22, of Guelph, and his wife were in Turkey last July when they were detained near the Syrian border.

They were suspected of terror-related activity but released without charge and booted back to Canada in mid-October.

Now, Mao has agreed to 19 conditions after appearing in a Brampton court. He agreed to surrender his passport, remain in Ontario, wear a GPS ankle bracelet, have limited Internet access and a number of other conditions.

No surprise here. Despite what the government said at the time, there was no question that CSIS would be looking closely at this event. There was a shroud of silence around the entire investigation which only served to offer further evidence of their involvement.

This was used as a watershed moment for activating the current round of action against registered owners. The stage was set in advance by collecting manifestly bogus data and presenting it as real. The 50% domestically sourced notion, the idea that 24 year olds were children and that paint ball guns, nail guns and soldering guns etc. were actually firearms, or that a semi auto rifle with a 5 round mag and a plastic stock is actually an assault rifle stand as examples of deliberate (with malice of forethought) statistical manipulations requiring only a tragedy to serve as a catalyst for further action. They jumped on this with both feet and the information about CSIS involvement was deliberately withheld to make it appear more "domestic." You may remember that the police chief was deliberately vague about the investigation and appeared embarrassed when discussing it..... at least I do. In short, there was never the slightest doubt and the Liberals looked you in the eye (on camera) and lied. Now, imagine what those with agendas would say if DJT did the exact same thing.

UK to pass law to stop early release of terrorists by February 27: government source

 

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain plans to pass emergency legislation by Feb. 27 to prevent convicted terrorists automatically being released from prison half-way through their sentence, a government source said on Wednesday.Justice minister Robert Buckland announced plans for the law earlier this week after an Islamist attacker stabbed two people in London on Sunday. Sudesh Amman had been released from prison half-way through his term on Jan. 23, despite still being considered a risk by authorities.He was shot dead by police officers who had placed him under covert surveillance.The new emergency law will be introduced to parliament on Tuesday next week.“If the legislation is passed by Feb. 27 we can prevent the automatic release of any further terrorist suspects who might pose a threat to the public,” the source said.“This is emergency legislation which we believe is vital for protecting the public ... We cannot continue to be in a position where the state has no power to block the release of terrorists who continue to pose a threat.”Neil Basu, the country’s top counter-terrorism police officer, welcomed the move to keep the most dangerous offenders locked up for longer but said it was only part of the solution. More had to be done to prevent people becoming radicalized in the first place, he said.“With 3000 or so subjects of interest currently on our radar and many convicted terrorists soon due to be released from prison, we simply cannot watch all of them, all the time.”

“Early intervention ... is absolutely key. We need families, friends, colleagues and local communities to recognize that early intervention is not ruining someone’s life but saving it, and potentially that of others, too,” he said in a statement.The government has said the legislation will apply to those already in prison, prompting predictions from some opponents that it could be challenged in the courts for breaching human rights law.

“What we are proposing in this emergency legislation is not to retrospectively alter offenders’ sentences as they were imposed by the court,” the government source said.

“This is in relation to release arrangements which are part of the administration of a sentence and it would be our position that you can change those without being considered to breach an offender’s human rights.”

 

Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack, but Dick said there was no evidence at this stage that it was “directed or enabled by anyone else

Doesn’t seem to be getting much coverage in the media (surprise) but there has been another terrorist attack resulting in death in Toronto:

Quote

 

Hang-Kam Annie Chiu was walking along Sheppard Ave. E. near Markham Rd. Friday around 7 p.m., when attacked by a man armed with a hammer, Toronto police said. Police received calls for a possible medical complaint. Chiu died of her injuries.

 

Meanwhile, Saad Akhtar, 30, of Toronto, surrendered at a nearby police station. A source told Postmedia he allegedly walked into the station and told officers he  allegedly walked into the station and told officers he had an explosive device, prompting an evacuation. Police have not confirmed that.

The hammer attack, at first look, aligns with that trajectory, said Amarnath Amarasingam, an assistant professor in the School of Religion at Queen’s University who specializes in terrorism and radicalization.

 

“Based on the initial evidence, it seems to be a kind of copy-cat attack. The attacks in London on November 2019 and February 2020 were quite similar and both individuals had on fake suicide vests as well,” Amarasingam said.

“How much of this can be used to ascertain motive remains to be seen, but if it does end up being inspired by the Islamic State, it would be a remarkable testament to how this group continues to inspire attacks even after the fact that most of their fighters are dead or in prison, all physical territory has been clawed back and their propaganda arm has taken a major hit,” he said.

Toronto police and the RCMP, in a joint statement, assured the public “this appears to be an isolated incident and there is no further known threat to the public associated to the accused at this time.”

Part of the government funded media’s efforts not to embarrass the current immigration policies.

And in addition, those attempting to deliberately derail trains (in support of a political cause) are not protesters, they're terrorists. 

The media still refers to them as protesters, but the definition is pretty clear:

"the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives"

This is why gang members (as a for instance) are not terrorists. People with agendas always try to manipulate the definitions and there are several. The UN, RCMP, FBI, Homeland Security etc all have their own but they are all slightly different versions of the above. Most others also include religious objectives, in this case "social" is intended to capture that aspect.

The notion of enshrining the "UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples" into Canadian law will ensure more of these events over time. The overall threat assessment of these actions has the potential to quickly eclipse that of ISIS. If not for our self inflicted weak stance on terrorist offenders, I would argue that it already has.

In addition, please consider that we don't even need new laws:

"Every one who, with intent to commit an indictable offence, has his face masked or coloured or is otherwise disguised is guilty of an indictable offence."

From the Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian file....We'll see how long it takes for the boywonder to blame somebody else for this disaster....

Mohamed got seven years.

But three years later, he was already out of prison on statutory release, although his parole report said he had not abandoned extremist ideology and remained a “significant” risk.

He was one of five terrorism offenders released from Canadian prisons in 2019, despite concerns raised by parole boards that four of them still posed a risk to public safety.

I’m betting he’ll blame the Harper government.

A tough sell; it was the Harper government who brought in Dangerous Offender Laws. In general, Canada has very good laws across the board. People demanding new ones don't even realize what they already have to work with;  they simply aren't enforced and if they are the justice system thwarts the outcome. 

Here's a fun example of what I mean:

 “every one who, with intent to endanger the safety of any person, places anything on or does anything to any property that is used for or in connection with the transportation of persons or goods by land, water or air that is likely to cause death or bodily harm to persons is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for life.”

The latest nonsense is "the red flag law," it already exists and has been used before. The Desmond murder suicide case (currently under review) is an example of it being used.... and used badly.
