Canada's "solution" ... Or is it?

Reader comment on item: What To Do With Un-Deportable Aliens?

Submitted by J.S. (Canada), Jul 17, 2006 at 14:44

On June 22, 2006 the Canadian Government released from custody (the individual was being held in jail on what's termed a "security certificate") a suspected al-Qaeda sympathizer, named Harkat. Harkat cannot be deported (his country of origin practices "torture"). He cannot be given a "trial" for his "crimes" (or suspicious activities) were committed outside Canada. He is too dangerous to be granted complete freedom, or allowed to be "set loose" to roam at large in Canada (there's fear he'd plot a terrorist attack).

So, what has been done is 1) he's not allowed to go on the Internet (how that's to be enforced I have no idea); 2) he's not allowed to own a cell phone 3) he has to wear an ankle bracelet -- his phone is tapped and whereabout monitored (but, as some CSIS people have noted, if he goes into a tunnel, he can't be tracked -- thus, there are ways around the so-called "security" provisions.)

I think these sorts should be flown to somewhere into the Antarctica -- air-lifted there -- allowed to live in some shack -- supplies flown in once a year...then they could establish their jihadist "culture" if they so wished...murder one another...establish Sharia law, etc., spend all day praying or reading the koran, etc., etc. but, otherwise bother no one.. they could possibly have a video-link to a doctor...or perhaps just fly-in some jihadist doctor... this special station in the Antarctica could also be considered "temporary" housing -- that's until the world puts together a special, prisoner-jihadist space-station...some time in the future -- then they could be orbited into outer space...

I think this would satisfy the requirements of all the "humanitarians" who don't like killing jihadist terrorists...just put them in an environment where the average temperature is minus 70 degrees Celsius...(don't need to build walls, fences, or use monitoring devices...the environment does it for you.)
