Canadian Terror Coverage
B15958 / Thu, 8 Jun 2006 21:53:58 / "War on Terror"


May 29th thru June 2nd saw the appearance of terror pundits on the normally dreadful Canada AM.

Its just a matter of time.

Its not IF its WHEN.

Weve let the conditions take hold and flourish

The verdict was in, terror was on the march.

Then the late night news on Friday, June 2nd brought the confirmation, a series of terror-related arrests had been made in Ontario.

Game, set and match.

Sketchy Details & Paranoia.

That was the top headline of the Edmonton Journal on Saturday, June 3rd.

Ottawa to commit $5.5B for C-17s, new Hercs

That was the second billing on the front page.

The details were choppy about the Terror Sweep, (Coming Soon to a neighborhood near YOU!), but the CanWest News Service was happy to speculate;

Police provided no details, but arrests in Canada have been widely anticipated since April, when the FBI announced it had arrested two Georgia men on terrorism-related charges. The FBI said at the time that the suspects, Ehsanul Sadeqee and Syed Ahmed, met in Toronto with at least three subjects of a terrorism investigation to discuss training and attacks.
Widely anticipated? By who? Canada AM pundits? Stephen Harpers advisors? Clearly not the alleged Canadian terrorists who carried on with their alleged plans evidently terrorists dont watch the news.

...RCMP and Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) officials emphasized the threat of homegrown terrorism.
Homegrown not just for breakfast anymore. But that isnt the worst of it;

We have cases of white Anglo-Saxon male Protestants converting to the most radical forms of Islam. These are people who blend in with us and our neighborhoods ...
Thats right, Hoser. The toque is no longer a guarantor of your fidelity to the Crown. Be afraid, very afraid.

Well, well.

A nice little agent provocateur stirring things up for Canadian CSIS anti-terrorism.
And stoking the "debate" so the politicians can take advantage.

In U.S., U.K., Canada it's like.... Standard M.O.

CSIS 'mole' outs himself on CBC

Infiltrated alleged cell: Fundamentalist tried to bring shariah to Ontario

Stewart Bell, National Post - Friday, July 14, 2006

TORONTO - A man who led a campaign to bring Islamic law to Ontario
last year has been identified as the police informant who infiltrated an
alleged terrorist cell in Toronto.

While the RCMP warned journalists they were prohibited by law from
identifying Mubin Shaikh, the self-professed "fundamentalist" Muslim
confirmed his involvement in the investigation to the CBC.

In an interview broadcast yesterday, Mr. Shaikh described how he was
recruited by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service into providing
information on extremist activities.

"So I met with the CSIS guys and they were very interested in me now
so basically they put to me the prospect of working with them," he said.

He said he was asked to give information on "certain people, certain
groups, getting close to leaders of certain groups, talking to them, seeing
what kind of views they had and reporting on those views, what I thought
those views to be, were they nefarious, weren't they nefarious."

Mr. Shaikh's role as an informant was already widely rumoured in the
Toronto Muslim community, which has been consumed with talk of the
terror case since the RCMP arrested 17 suspects on June 2.

"We've heard that he's working for CSIS," a man at a local Islamic
organization said when asked about the whereabouts of Mr. Shaikh.
Several Muslim community leaders contacted by the National Post
yesterday made similar comments.

The outspoken Mr. Shaikh, 29, calls himself an "Orthodox Muslim" and is
a prolific writer of letters to the editor -- some of them published during
the anti-terror investigation.

"I was born, raised and educated in Canada. I am proud to be a
fundamentalist Muslim -- one who practices the basics of Islam, not just
discusses them," he wrote in a 2001 letter.

In January, he wrote a letter to a Toronto daily calling for Canada to
withdraw its troops from Afghanistan. He also wrote critically about the
Taliban and attended an anti-Semitism rally in 2004, when he was an
administrator at the Masjid El-Noor mosque in Toronto.

"I am a practicing, Orthodox Muslim but I do not deny that others can
possess a great deal of wisdom, be it the Dalai Lama, a Jewish sage, a
Christian mystic, a Hindu pundit or even an atheist," he once wrote.

But Mr. Shaikh is best known for his prominent role during last summer's
heated debate over whether the Ontario government should recognize
shariah law tribunals that would arbitrate family disputes.

The proposal, floated by former NDP attorney-general Marion Boyd,
ignited protests in Dusseldorf, Paris, London, Amsterdam and Canada by
a movement called the International Campaign Against Shariah Court in

Demonstrators complained that shariah law discriminates against women,
but Mr. Shaikh defended the proposal at counter-protests in Toronto.

Premier Dalton McGuinty eventually shelved the plan by doing away with
all forms of religious arbitration. "There will be no shariah law in Ontario,"
he said at the time. "There will be one law for all Ontarians."

Since police charged a dozen adults and five juveniles under the Anti-
terrorism Act last month, media reports have indicated that agents
working for CSIS and the RCMP had infiltrated the alleged terror group.

Police allege the extremists were led by Fahim Ahmad and Zakaria
Amara, who plotted to attack Parliament and detonate truck bombs at the
CSIS Toronto office and the Toronto Stock Exchange.

The investigation, the largest counter-terror investigation since the 1985
Air-India bombings, focused on a group of young Canadians who had
allegedly become indoctrinated into the "al-Qaeda ideology."

While the group has been described as "homegrown," there are also a
number of suspected links to Pakistan, and in particular to a Kashmiri
terrorist group called Lashkar-e-Tayyiba.

Aly Hindy, imam of the Salaheddin Islamic Centre in Scarborough, said
he had heard the rumours about Mr. Shaikh, whom he said once attended
a meeting of Toronto imams, although he was not an imam himself. "He
was like very talkative, you know. He's a young guy."

Muslim went undercover to save lives
Photo by Peter Power, the Toronto Star

By Michelle Shephard
Toronto Star
Toronto (Jul 14, 2006)

Mubin Shaikh, a well-known and sometimes controversial figure in Toronto's Muslim community, says he decided to become an undercover police agent and infiltrate an alleged terrorism cell to protect Canada, the country where he was born.

Shaikh went public yesterday about his role as a paid informant, a day after The Toronto Star broke the story of his involvement in the investigation into an alleged "homegrown" terrorist group.

The Star story did not identify him by name due to provisions of the Witness Protection Program Act that make it an offence to disclose the identity of a police agent.

But Shaikh said yesterday he has declined an offer by police to enter the program that would have given him a new identity and moved his family out of the city.

The 30-year-old said his decision to break his silence came after he was inundated with calls from the Muslim community encouraging him to do so.

His role was widely known throughout the community since he was often seen with the suspects, but was not arrested June 2 in the massive police raids.

In an interview with the Star yesterday, he said he wanted to "take control of the story" and describe his motivation for getting involved with Canada's spy service and federal police force.

"I wanted to prevent the loss of life," he said.

"There are no combatants on the downtown streets of Toronto," he said concerning the allegations now facing 17 suspects arrested June 2.

"I don't want Canadians to think that these (suspects) are what Muslims are. I don't believe in violence here. I wanted to help and I'm as homegrown as it gets."

Shaikh, who was born in Toronto and was a decorated Royal Canadian Army Cadet as a teenager, said he became devoted to Islam about 10 years ago.

He said he supports the jihad in Afghanistan and Iraq, but not attacks on civilians at home.

The RCMP alleges that the 17 terrorism suspects arrested last month -- including a McMaster University graduate and a McMaster student -- formed a group whose goals included bombing southern Ontario targets.

Shaikh said he first approached Canada's spy service in 2004 after the arrest of Mohammad Momin Khawaja, the first person in Canada to be charged with criminal terrorism offences. Shaikh knew Khawaja and his family and offered CSIS help.

Last year, he said he was asked by CSIS to try to infiltrate the Toronto group, which had been under surveillance, by befriending alleged leader Fahim Ahmed.

Once he gained Ahmed's trust, Shaikh said he met other members of the group and helped lead what police allege was a "training camp" last December. Police allege members of the camp dressed in camouflage, used guns for target practice and sources said they taped a video used to recruit others, in a Washago, Ont., field.

During the time last fall that he worked undercover for the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, and then the RCMP, in his public life Shaikh became an internationally controversial figure.

Shaikh was the province's most vocal advocate for the use of sharia law, a controversial set of Muslim rules and guidelines, under Ontario's arbitration act where both parties approved.

A picture of him jostling with a female protester outside Queen's Park shortly before the province declined to recognize the use of faith-based arbitration was carried worldwide.

Shaikh is also the multicultural chair for Liberal MP Alan Tonks' York South-Weston riding association.

His biography on Tonks' website reads:

"Traveller, philosopher, theologian, Mubin Shaikh is not your ordinary Torontonian.

"At first look, one might think they've encountered an extremist but on second take, you realize you've been had!"

Tonks said he has had a 10-year relationship with Shaikh and his father.

"Mubin just articulates that sort of loyalty to the country, that acts of terrorism that have occurred are aberrations to their concept of (Islam)," Tonks stressed in an interview yesterday.

"His overall loyalty to the country is unquestionable."

While he didn't know Shaikh was involved with police, he said he was not surprised he would offer to help authorities.

Others question his motivation. Echoing concerns raised by defence lawyers of the 17 of entrapment, they question whether he instigated any of the alleged terrorist plans.

Another thing to mention, as they were conducting the arrests, and turning the arrests into one hell of a media spectacular
(Helicopters flying over the Brampton courthouse. Snipers on the roof, and total media frenzy was just out of control (not sure what was seen outside of Canada, but here it was just a total disgrace). (Just so you understand, this is TOTALLY OUT OF LINE WITH WHAT USUALLY HAPPENS HERE, it was a totally Americanised media frenzy (no offence Wink ), they engineered a total media circus to drive home a winner.

The point is, the police were issuing "photos" of "evidence" (which turned out to be a mixed bag of 'actual' and 'items similar to the ones used by' the alleged), they were providing lots of (dis)info...

Then as soon as they locked all these guys up (in solitary (lights on 24/7, and guard waking them up every 30 minutes) I might add), they imposed a media ban.

BTW - If anyone has the photos of the "evidence", it is rather hilarious stuff... As I recall a bullet ridden door, a cell phone with some wires hanging out, a $2 soldering iron etc etc... It would be worthwhile posting them in this thread, they are worth a laugh...

Gregory Bonnell, Canadian Press
Published: Monday, June 12, 2006

BRAMPTON, Ont. (CP) - A justice of the peace involved in the case against 17 terror suspects has imposed a publication ban on the proceedings.

A lawyer representing one of the accused says the Crown had no right to seek a blanket publication ban after feeding so many damaging accusations to the media about the suspects.

"After they've had 10 days with the media, feeding the media whatever they want to feed the media, denying us disclosure of any evidence and doing what they need to do to conduct a trial in this parking lot of this courthouse, they now have the audacity to request a blanket publication ban of all proceedings from today's date," Rocco Galati said outside court on Monday morning before the ban was imposed.

Galati, who represents Ahmad Mustafa Ghany, a 21-year-old health sciences graduate of McMaster University, said he wants the allegations against his client to be known.

"I want the public to know exactly the allegations against my client," he said.

"I want the public to see the bail hearing, I want the public to assess for itself and have confidence in the administration of justice and the only way to do that is with a live feed."

Galati made the comments outside the Brampton, Ont., court where many of the suspects made appearances on Monday.

Outside court, Galati said the men are being kept in isolation in rooms that are lit 24 hours a day. He said they are being woken up every half hour.

Another lawyer said outside court that his client was beaten by a guard after he giggled because he felt ticklish while being searched.

David Kolinsky said the guard pinned his client to the ground, drilled his knuckle into the man's cheek and said, "is this funny?"

"Under the convention against torture and other cruel and unusual punishment the instances of mistreatment that defence counsel have cited as going on at the jail constitute torture," Galati told reporters.

Galati said the men have been denied access to their lawyers and have been allowed no time outdoors for five straight days.

He said the accused are given only five minutes to eat their meals or else the food is taken away.

The men are not allowed to speak to anyone, including the guards, and are being forced to keep their eyes on the floor at all times.

"When they are escorted or walked from point A to point B, they must walk at a 90-degree angle with their legs upright and their torso across at a 90-degree angle with handcuffs stretched out and be escorted by three armed tactical members of the security forces," Galati said.

The lawyer called the treatment of the men and youths "unprecedented" and said the suspects have been publicly declared guilty by the prime minister, the mayor of Toronto and some Muslim community leaders.

These and other actions associated with the case call into question whether the accused could now get fair treatment by the justice system, the lawyer said.

"Within mere days of the arrests, the prime minister of Canada and the mayor of Toronto publicly declared the guilt of the accused," Galati said outside the courthouse.

"Some leaders of the opposition, MPs and senators have also declared their guilt," he said.

"Self-proclaimed leaders of the Muslim community, in a desperate attempt to distance themselves from the accused have declared them guilty as well."

The 17 suspects face a variety of charges including knowingly participating in or contributing to terrorist activity, providing or receiving training for terrorist purposes and providing or making available property for a terrorist activity.

Weapons and explosives charges include committing indictable offences, in this case planning to cause an explosion and importing firearms and ammunition, to benefit a terrorist group.

The maximum sentences for participating in terrorism, training and making property available are 10 years in prison.

The weapons and explosives offences would be crimes in any case, but proof that they were linked to a terrorist objective would raise the maximum sentence to life in prison.

Galati also pointed to the heavy military force surrounding court proceedings last week, including the presence of SWAT team members inside the courtroom, saying it all leads to the denial of a fair bail hearing.

"The military show of force was oppressive and . . . included three outside perimeters with a tactical team with automatic assault rifles, rooftop snipers, helicopters and dogs," he said.

"It also included inside the courtroom armed SWAT team members with automatic assault rifles."

Media from around the world were at the courthouse, as they were last week when the men made their first appearance, but their families had no comment.

Several male family members or supporters held hands to form a protective ring around the women as they made their way from the parking lot into the courthouse.

Among those in attendance was Karim Khadr, the son of Ahmed Said Khadr, an associate of Osama bin Laden who was killed in a fire fight with Pakistani forces in 2003.

Yes... seems that way... The use of the word "homegrown terrorism" is now "the norm", and everyone in the media now has license (and I'm sure is encouraged) to use it as often as possible. Baby-steps. It's all part of the plan.

Well.. well... interesting connection...


Ottawa man kept assault rifles, U.K. court told
Prosecutors detail raid on Khawaja


The first Canadian accused by the RCMP of being a "homegrown" terrorism suspect kept three assault rifles under his bed, prosecutors told a British court yesterday.

He also tinkered with electrical components to make bomb detonators [this could be a "light switch" for all we know] and read documents titled Terrorism and Self Sufficiency [OMG!] and The Religion and Doctrine of Jihad.

Long before 17 terrorism suspects were arrested in Toronto this summer, the RCMP raided the suburban Ottawa family home of a Canadian named Mohammed Momin Khawaja, then 24. He is accused of assisting in a U.K. bomb plot, and the items allegedly seized in his home have been kept secret by a Canadian court-ordered publication ban imposed shortly after his arrest in 2004.

As Mr. Khawaja awaits trial in Ottawa next year, seven of his alleged co-conspirators are on trial in Britain, where the prosecution case has shed considerable light on the alleged jihadist network. The U.K. prosecutors insist Mr. Khawaja played a crucial role in the bombing conspiracy hatched by British suspects whom he met through the Internet.

The U.K. Crown yesterday revealed a lot of the evidence the RCMP seized in the Khawaja family home. "A long rifle gun, 7.62-calibre weapon was found in a gun box in the bedroom, under the bed," British prosecutor Mark Heywood told the Old Bailey court in central London. "There was also a second 7.62-calibre rifle in the same place . . . a third long gun was also found under the bed as well as a gun-cleaning kit and a box of 7.62 cartridges."

Mr. Khawaja has never been charged in any Canadian conspiracy [this would mean that the weapons were lawfully owned, would it not?], but prosecutors allege he exchanged e-mails with the British group, saying he was busy making detonators and a signal jammer for them. The alleged intent was to help them explode an ammonium-nitrate fertilizer bomb from afar to kill scores of civilians.

Some equipment, to this end, was allegedly found in the home. Mr. Heywood further alleges the Mounties also turned up books and articles titled Guerrilla Warfare, Defence of the Muslim Landsand The Religion and Doctrine of Jihad.

The Khawaja family has long insisted the entire case is a pastiche of lies from the RCMP, and continued to assert that yesterday.

"Guns were not there a week before the RCMP came," Qasim Khawaja, the suspect's older brother, said in an interview yesterday.

As for the published materials found in the home, he said the RCMP was making too much of them. "Do you ever watch porn?" he asked rhetorically. "Just because you watch something, does that mean you're actually going out and doing it?"

One remarkable thing about the alleged 2004 U.K. plot is that it mirrors the subsequent 2006 Toronto case almost identically -- in both cases, a group of Internet-savvy extremists [here we go again with the buzzwords] are alleged to have graduated from paintball games [OMG!] to jihadist training to full-out bomb conspiracies that involved the purchase of large amounts of ammonium-nitrate fertilizer.

In both cases, Crown prosecutors say they amassed informants and intercepts and neutralized the fertilizer before any bomb plot could take place.

Oddly, a family friend of the Khawaja family has surfaced in the Toronto case as a star Crown witness who infiltrated and informed on the Toronto group.

Terror mole visited accused Ottawa terrorist

Ian MacLeod, CanWest News Service
Published: Saturday, July 15, 2006

OTTAWA -- The family of accused Ottawa terrorist Momin Khawaja had an unexpected visit about a year ago from an old family friend they had not seen since he was a boy in Toronto.

Mubin Shaikh, now 30, spent an hour or two chatting and dining at the family's Ottawa home, during which he asked about his boyhood friend, Khawaja, who is in an Ottawa jail cell awaiting his January trial.

The family thought little more of the visit until they turned on the television news Thursday night.

There was Shaikh revealing his role in "Operation Claymore" as a CSIS agent who infiltrated an alleged Toronto terrorist cell planning to blow up a major building in the city and launch a shooting rampage at a crowded public place.

In fact, Shaikh said it was Khawaja's March 2004 arrest, and his belief that neither Khawaja nor his family held extremist views, that motivated him to volunteer his services to the spy agency. [What the hell does that mean?]

Back in Ottawa, the Khawajas were astounded. "It was a big surprise," Mahboob Khawaja, Momin's father, said Friday.

It also raises questions about whether Shaikh had a hand in the federal government's case against Khawaja, the first person charged under the nascent Anti-terrorism Act for allegedly plotting with a suspected London terrorist cell to bomb the British capital in 2004.

Lawrence Greenspon, Khawaja's lawyer, said Friday he has seen no evidence in prosecution documents disclosed to him so far that suggest Shaikh's renewed interest in the Khawajas was anything more than a social call.

As well, he said, Shaikh, "has allegedly become involved with the `Toronto 17' at a time when Momin has been in custody, so clearly, there is no link (with) Momin ... nor could there be. He's been in jail the whole time."

The Toronto suspects were charged in June with allegedly plotting two strikes: one to detonate a truck bomb to destroy a significant building and the other to open fire on a crowd in a public place.

Shaikh's renewed contact with the Khawajas began about a year or year-and-a-half ago, said Mahboob Khawaja, who taught Shaikh and other children at weekend Islamic classes when the Khawajas lived in Toronto in the early 1980s.

Shaikh's father, "called us that Mubin was visiting Ottawa and we said, `OK, fine, we'd love to meet him because he's also known to my elder son Qasim. I just took it (the visit) at face value. He was known to us, his father is one of my friends and we've known them for a long, long time.

"I still believe he's a nice kid, whatever he did."

In his Thursday night interview with CBC News, Shaikh said he returned from a trip to Syria in March 2004 to learn of Khawaja's high-profile arrest.

"We grew up together," he told CBC. "We have a good connection with the family. I contacted CSIS, I phoned them and I said, `I know the family, I know this guy Momin. Is there some way I can help, give some information, in that I've grown up with him? I don't know him to be like this or his brother, definitely not his family, they're not extremists."'
