'Quartermaster of terror' : Canadian Jihad "Khawaja Trial"
The defence has argued Khawaja wanted to be a "front-line jihadi soldier" in Afghanistan and should be considered a combatant in an armed conflict, not a terrorist as defined by Canadian law?
WTF, Mr. Khawaja's defence all along, was in my opinion "What do you be saying to me. I am innocent, I know nothing, "What days is it?" "Cultural misunderstanding please?" What is a Jihad? I only know Hockey and Tim Horton's Donuts "EH" Canada No.! ! Yeah, right, Mr. pleads Innocence of everything till the Canadian Feds got him dead to rights with the Terrorist goods, now professes his seeming memory lapse in what can only be another Stall at Canadian Justice to plead, treat me like a soldier, not a terrorist.
Versus his other statement, I did not know the bombs would be used in London, England against innocent civilians, I thought the bombs were going to be used on innocent men, women and children in Afghanistan, so treat me as a soldier.
His "Have a Nice Day, please" Me innocent ! This Terrorist, and I say terrorist, suckered his lefty Canadian Supporters who truly believed his innocence, must now be shaking their heads, thinking, How could we be so stupid?
It is pretty easy, when those good at deception can charm and disarrn most they meet, including his Canadian wife, who may feel betrayed as well.
I would post photos of his traumatized Mother and Father, but they deserve respect in what they considered "a good son, turned bad", and no parent deserves that grief.
'Quartermaster of terror' Crown argues Khawaja gave militia-like gear, money to jihad group that planned U.K. fertilizer bomb plot
By DONNA CASEY, SUN MEDIA
Momin Khawaja was ready to provide and "pull the trigger" of a deadly weapon for an Islamic extremist terror cell when he built a remote-control detonator device in 2004, said the Crown attorney in the terrorism trial of the Orleans man.
Describing the software designer as "a zealot with deadly intentions," federal prosecutor David McKercher said yesterday the 29-year-old man acted as a "quartermaster of terror," eagerly supplying money and militia-like gear for a London-based jihad group that planned a fertilizer bomb plot targeting a U.K. nightclub, shopping complex and gas and electric facilities.
In a blistering rebuttal to a defence motion asking the trial judge to quash all seven terrorism charges against Khawaja, McKercher said Justice Douglas Rutherford should take Khawaja's self-description as "the West's mortal enemy" in literal terms.
"Momin Khawaja was prepared to provide and metaphorically pull the trigger of a very powerful weapon," McKercher said of the so-called "Hi-Fi Digimonster" the software developer allegedly built for a U.K.-based bomb plot. "Others in the group had provided the power of the blast, the ammunition," said McKercher, referring to 600 kg of ammonium nitrate fertilizer seized by British police at a depot in March 2004.
Omar Khyam, the leader of the conspiracy who was convicted with four other plotters in 2007 by a British jury, "was pointing the weapon and the barrel of the weapon was still swinging when the plot was interrupted by authorities," said McKercher.
If the plot had been carried out, "Momin Khawaja would be perfectly content with the brutally deadly results of his handiwork of which he, along with the rest of the world, would learn about in press reports the following day," said McKercher.
The seven terrorism charges Khawaja faces under the Anti-Terrorism Act shows "separate and distinct facets of his involvement in a terror group cell," McKercher said.
"The London fertilizer bomb plot was not the end of their terrorist ambitions or Momin Khawaja's," said McKercher, calling the Orleans man's support for violent jihad "all-consuming and not one-dimensional."
The defence has argued Khawaja wanted to be a "front-line jihadi soldier" in Afghanistan and should be considered a combatant in an armed conflict, not a terrorist as defined by Canadian law.
