Vic Toews says public safety trumps the speedy return of convicted terrorist and murderer Omar Khadr to Canada.
Racism is alive and well around the world. I don't care about Khadr's race. Get that thru your Fricking heads... He could be Martian for all I care. I do care that he is a terrorist (Thanks to whomever posted that eloquent phote of the sob with Human hands)
SO stop your complaining about bias. Your Poster Boy fulfills everything we hoped for.
Until MUSLIMS start speaking out against terror, beyond mere platitudes, fingering the radicals and support Canadian DIVERSITY FOR ALL, they will continue to be suspect.
Actions speak louder than words, and your actions are transparent and the motivation is clear.

"William Samson loses weight and gets a daily torture."
See.O,Neil the racist believes Samson was tortured because Samson says so and he is white.
Racist right wingers like O,Neil say Arar is a liar when he says he was tortured because he does not have white skin
Such hate and racism from right wingers.

"What "is truly painfully obvious" is that William Sampson, yes, with Canadian-British "citizenship" and most of all William Sampson is not nor has ever been a "terrorist."
And Omar is and has been a terrorist?
Maybe Susan can relate the terrorist activity Omar was involved in?
Dont think she can.
And the reason is obvious
uplink says that Omar was ..
"treated much better than he deserves."
And why is it I wonder that uplink says that?
Odds are the reason is because uplink is racist.
Omar for everyones info is far more Canadian than Samson
uplink has always said he has no faith in the justice system but yet he feels Omar who has never been CONvicted of anything,and it seems with all the lies the Americans have been caught in,has never killed anyone,shouyld not be treated fairly.
Racists like uplink also dont like Maher Arar and put him down simply because of his name and his colour.
But think Samson is great just because he is white.
I see being away for 5 days racism and hate has gone crazy yet again on this forum
I see wayne is going crazy

Anyway, thank goodness the majority of people agree he deserves to stay in Git-mo just because he was fighting as a terrorist. No one really thinks he threw that grenade but I'm sure we all agree he fired his AK-47, which they had to pry out of his hands when they found him. Guilty as charged and I hope he hangs.
As for the foolish head of the Muslim Council crying about Harper having no care about Khadr. I'm certain Khadr is the last thing on Harper's mind these days. I would hope Harper is thinking of the majority instead of the individual. I would hope Harper is concentrating on the economy and keeping Canada on track for a successful future. That's the kind of leader I want in Ottawa! Not a PR ploy to gain future votes like Chretien did.

"Elmasry contrasts Khadr's case with that of dual Canadian-British citizen William Sampson, who was freed from a death sentence in Saudi Arabia in 2003. Prior to his release, Ottawa had said it had made pleas on Sampson's behalf to the highest levels of Saudi government.
'Why is Stephen Harper so callously indifferent to Omar Khadr's case?' Elmasry wrote.
'It's painfully obvious: William Sampson is a white Westerner while his fellow Canadian citizen, Omar Khadr, is brown-skinned and a Muslim.'
What "is truly painfully obvious" is that William Sampson, yes, with Canadian-British "citizenship" and most of all William Sampson is not nor has ever been a "terrorist." The race-card of "convenience" along with "Canadian citizenship" of convenience is being well over-played, is more than disingenuous, despicable, and such low shallow posturing to garner "votes" to get Khadr shipped back to Canada. This is not about "sympathetic" VOTE GETTING, it is about the law in the United States of America where Omar Khadr (allegedly, so far, until the Military Tribunal is completed, unlike the Section 13.1 Human Rights Tribunals where "NO EVIDENCE, AND THE TRUTH DON'T COUNT) is being tried as an individual, with no government he was representing, al Q'aeda and the Taliban are not legal governments in Afghanistan and not legal, United Nations, recognized militaries.
Anyone who buys into this newest angle of "race card" again had better look up the Criminal Code of Canada, forget your Human Rights Tribunals. Your "vote getting of support" in this manner is disgusting. Desperation in the extreme. Interesting how these extremists "decided" to "emigrate" to Canada or were actually considered "legal refugees." When one sees this type of tirades being conducted, the first thing that must be done is take a look at "each" immigrant/refugees files and find out the (lies?) untruths, fabrications, manipulations, to get "permanent resident status" and/or Canadian citizenship. Put them all in a "Canadian" military uniform, ship them over to Afghanistan, and we will see whose side they are really on.

Which has more rights.
The rights of one, or the rights of the many.
The right of safety for the masses is sacrificed if you give him the right to his freedom, based on age alone.

Notwithstanding Omar's chronological age, news reports state Omar had been on the battlefield for three years prior to his capture. Omar was a conditioned contributor to the cause.
As I illustrated in another blog, Omar Khadr's lawyers are responsible for any lack of due process in Omar's case. They have consistently tried every trick in the book to keep Omar out of court. The court date is set. Let the trial play out, then for those who feel it is necessary, re-visit. Re-visiting Omar's case should not automatically mean Omar comes back to Canada. Let's hear the evidence which is yet to be presented.
