More on Security Certificates...

Reader comment on item: Does the [New York] Police Department Profile? Should It?

Submitted by J.S. (Canada), Jun 15, 2006 at 18:40

In an interview with Mike Duffy of CTV Television, Canada's justice minister, Vic Toews, said (today) that if a bin Laden set foot on Canadian soil and if the Supreme Court has taken away the use of Security Certificates -- then, yes, bin Laden would be a free man...you couldn't deport him, you couldn't jail him, you couldn't detain him -- if he's on Canadian soil, he's to be treated the same as any other Canadian -- he could, of course, apply for refugee status...

I suspect that the Liberal vision of Canada is to have polygamist terrorists, collecting multiple welfare checks for their 40 plus offspring, preaching from pulpits about the virtues of jihad, fomenting suicide-terrorist attacks, that's when they're not actively transporting/planting bombs, weapons, etc., to demolish buildings, roadside buildings, etc., ..all done with tax-payer monies... the ultimate "vision" for "multi-culturalism" -- the "infidels" provide the means, opportunities, and financing to dig their own graves...provide the bullets.

Another irony is the lop-sided nature of the current "war." Prosecution of terrorists is totally hampered...There's another familiar theme -- suppose Muslim group X decides not to integrate into western society. They live apart, forming their own ghetto. They're impoverished, unemployed, uneducated (except in the Koran) -- but this is ALL done by choice. Then they turn about and complain loudly about the majority culture's "racism." (I think this is going on everywhere Islam is in a minority status.)

And it's the same with respect to Security Certificates. As Mike Duffy of CTV pointed out, the Security Certificates are NOT a criminal procedure -- it's about Administrative Law -- and if suspected terrorists are in jail, they are in jail by reason of choice -- they choose to be in jail rather than return to their country of origin. Thus, the same situation as with self-inflicted "ghetohood." The suspected terrorists choose to remain in jail, rather than go home, than turn about and scream about what a grave "injustice" is being perpetrated by the Canadian legal system.. The truth, though, is that their "suffering" is self-inflicted. (another problem about the lop-sided nature of the war on Islamists -- the 3 detainees in Canada who went to the Supreme Court to "get sprung" are, of course, the most likely to be smiled upon...the other 2 (there are a total of 5 detainees) who are FAR less likely to ever be considered "nice" guys -- of course, they don't go before the Supreme Court...thus, the inherent injustice of this process...the "nice" guys -- the "prettier faces" will 'cause the law to be overturned with respect to Security Certificates, and they'll all get loose as a consequence. ) Also, from newspaper reports -- it doesn't look good for the feds...the justices were grilling them...one justice stating that if security is placed prior to other considerations, than Canada might as well be North Korea! As I laugh...yeah, so we don't get Security Certificates -- then what? Somalia? armed camps? daily roadside bombs? What then? what the hell good is "Free Speech" or any other so-called liberty? utter morons...
