In the competition to see which Western country can send the most jihad fighters to the Middle East, Finland, Britain, and Belgium have recently been mentioned as contenders for the title of “Greatest Supporter of Jihad”. However, it may come as a surprise to most readers that, on a per capita basis, Canada incubates, radicalizes and sends out more mujahideen to join not just the Syrian front but every battlefield where ISIS is fighting, or where there is an Al Qaeda franchise.
Americans may also be unaware that a lot of people in influential positions in major American Muslim Brotherhood affiliates — including Jamal Badawi, Ingrid Mattson and even Ibrahim Hooper — are Canadian nationals.
Point de Bascule has just published a report that may not sit well with the more partisan factions in Canada — that is, those who are willing to resist sharia, yet still believe that a 20th-century style democracy can handle the problem of radical Islamic infiltration. As if allowing mass Muslim immigration weren’t bad enough, the government has been at best ignorantly enabling the penetration of Canada by Islamic zealots, and at worst actively colluding with them.
According to the CBC (Canadian broadcasting Corporation) Canada actually exceeds European countries on a per capita basis. The United States just determined that in Syria alone, there are five hundred Canadian nationals that joined the combatants:
If the CBC is willing to report that there are five hundred “Canadian” mujahideen, it’s a safe bet that there are at least that many waging jihad in the path of Allah.
This is a disproportionate number compared with every other country in the West. And this radicalization is carried out by “mainstream” Islamic institutions, the Muslim Association of Canada being the main body and, according the Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch, the only organization apart from Hamas to openly declare that they endorse and promote the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood.
This is only the tip of the iceberg, and it’s happening even under a Conservative Government.
A country’s intelligence agencies are the only entities that have the privilege and means and access to be able to do proper due diligence before any government agency associates with or hires individuals. In the case of Canada, this is obviously not being done, which is appalling, give the quantity of information regarding Hussein Hamdani and his cohorts that is available in the public domain. Canada may be the most irresponsible country in the world in allowing (and funding) “radicalization”.
The Conservatives are the only government capable of dealing with the issue, and they are not doing so. They are fueling the problem. They are failing the Canadian people.
They are more concerned with those who return from jihad abroad than they are with radicalization at home. The security apparatus is obsessed only with violent, explosive type of terrorism. It has no interest in investigating the seeds that radicalize.
Below are excerpts from the report by Point de Bascule:
June 8, 2012 — Muslim Brotherhood delegation led by Hussein Hamdani met with Minister of Public Safety Vic Toews / Details provided by lawyer of Hamas’s fund collector
On June 8, 2012, a delegation of Muslim activists met with Public Safety Minister Vic Toews. Later that month, Naseer Syed identified the participants and presented what was discussed at the meeting on his website MuslimLegal.ca. In his summary, Syed mentioned that a report of the meeting was provided to him directly by the leader of the delegation, Hussein Hamdani. Since this meeting took place, Vic Toews has retired from his federal seat and was replaced as Minister of Public Safety by Steven Blainey.
Hamdani made three main points in his presentation: he tried to discourage the Minister and other Canadian security officials from using Islamic concepts in order to explain the current Islamist threat, he asked for money on behalf of so-called “moderate Muslims” on the pretense of challenging the Islamists who are radicalizing the Muslim community and he proposed to schedule more meetings in the future between the Minister and “a Muslim community working group” (i.e. assuredly another Muslim Brotherhood front group).
PART 1— Hussein Hamdani, the leader of the Muslim delegation
Hussein Hamdani was the leader of the Muslim delegation that met with Minister Toews. He is a Hamilton lawyer and a member of the Cross-Cultural Roundtable on Security (CCRS). He was appointed to the CCRS in 2005 by then Minister of Public Safety Anne McLellan. According to its mandate, the Roundtable on Security “provides advice and perspectives to the Minister of Public Safety and the Minister of Justice, concerning matters of national security.” In 2006, the Globe and Mail revealed that Hamdani’s advising role led him to accompany the Public Safety Minister and CSIS Director in a mission abroad.
A review of Hamdani’s past activities would not only reveal his prolonged association with the Muslim Brotherhood infrastructure in Canada, it would also demonstrate how deficient is the vetting process for those who are chosen to advise the Minister responsible for ensuring the security of Canadians against terrorist attacks and the Islamist threat in general.
On many occasions in the past, Hussein Hamdani showed his “moderate Muslim” credentials to Canada’s security officials while associating himself with Islamist organizations, and even terror-funding organizations, at the same time.
In 2006, after the arrest of the Toronto 18, Hussein Hamdani asked then newly appointed Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day to fund “moderate and moderating voices” within the Muslim community in order to compete with radical influences. Hamdani said: “These [moderate] voices exist, but the community doesn’t have the money to bring them forward. Petro-dollars are hard to compete with.”
Hussein Hamdani’s opposition to the petro-dollar financing of the Islamist radicalization was just a smokescreen. In 2003, Hamdani relied on the sponsorship of an organization abundantly funded by petro-dollars, the Saudi World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY), to launch the Reviving the Islamic Spirit conventions. Year after year, these conventions feature promoters of armed jihad such as Siraj Wahhaj and others radical speakers. In 2012, the Canada Revenue Agency revoked WAMY-Canada’s charitable status because it had funded Al-Qaeda in the past.
In 2003, the first opening speech of all RIS conventions was given by the Saudi Grand Mufti Abdul-Aziz ibn Abdullah Aal ash-Shaikh, the main religious leader of Saudi Arabia and the personification of petro-dollar-funded Saudi Wahhabism. In 2012, CBN reported that the same Saudi Grand Mufti called for all churches to be demolished in the Arabian Peninsula. This area comprises Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates.
