Another doctor. Further proof that the lie that Islamic apologists and Muslim supremacists advance is propaganda. Here again, reality flies in the face of the bogus narrative of Islamic supremacists and the leftist lapdogs on their payroll, that jihad is caused by poverty. We are clubbed to death with the lie (literally). But it is often just the opposite. Well-educated and affluent, the jihadis shows that the catalyst for jihad is a move towards the faith of Islam. Religiosity is the catalyst.
Herdsmen in Nigeria, rappers in Germany, doctors in Glasgow, chemical engineering students in Canada, heart surgeons in Saudi Arabia, university students in Britain, imams in America and so forth – what brings these wildly different people together? Jihad. From the Sahara to the Kalahari, London to Lisbon, Manhattan to Madrid, Bali to Boston, Tiananmen Square to Thailand, Myanmar to Malaysia, Nairobi to Nigeria ….. no matter what the background, upbringing, schooling, wealth or poverty, color, what have you, it doesn’t matter. The understanding of Islam and jihad is the same, and it is the motive, the incitement to this monstrous war on the West and and the East and all points in between.
If the world was as concerned with the mass slaughter of non-Muslims by jihadists as they are about the fictional narrative of “islamophobia,” we might begin to defeat this enemy of humanity
“Doctor enters not guilty plea in as Ottawa terrorism trial begins,” Edmonton Journal, Thanks to Don, February 11, 2014
OTTAWA – A man who once auditioned for the Canadian Idol TV show has pleaded not guilty to a terrorism charge laid more than three years ago.
Khurram Syed Sher, a doctor of pathology from London, Ont., is being tried by judge alone in Ontario Superior Court after months of wrangling over how much information in the case can be made public.
Sher, 31, was charged in August 2010 with conspiracy to facilitate terrorism.
Wearing a grey suit and blue tie, he observed the proceedings from a small table near his counsel as the trial — expected to last four weeks — got off to a halting start.
During arguments Monday, one of Sher’s lawyers, Giuseppe Cipriano, made preliminary points about the legal nature of conspiracy as it relates to the charge.
In essence, the defence is seeking more information about the accusation, Cipriano said after the hearing.
“It’s just so we know what it is that they’re alleging he’s done wrong.”
Both Cipriano and federal lawyer Jason Wakely declined to elaborate on the defence motion.
Judge Charles Hackland is expected to rule on the request Tuesday before the Crown begins to lay out its main arguments.
Following Sher’s high-profile arrest, police said they seized terrorist literature, videos and manuals, along with dozens of electronic circuit boards allegedly designed to detonate homemade bombs remotely.
Police claim the alleged plot stretches from Ottawa to Afghanistan, Dubai, Iran and Pakistan.
A senior RCMP officer said at the time that an attack was still months away, but that the plotters were moving into a preparatory phase.
Authorities said they acted when they did to prevent the transfer of money to counterparts to buy weapons that would be used against coalition forces in Afghanistan.
Sher, a graduate of Montreal’s McGill University, worked an anatomical pathologist at St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital in St. Thomas, Ont., south of London.
He made international headlines shortly after his arrest when it emerged he had once sung and danced on the Canadian Idol program. He has been free on bail, under strict conditions, for years.
A publication ban on certain aspects of the case limits what can be reported during the trial.
In addition, the federal government has been trying to ensure portions of thousands of documents in the case never become public in order to protect the identity of a confidential source as well as sensitive relationships with foreign allies.
Records filed in the Federal Court of Canada indicate an undercover source working for Canada’s spy agency and secret intelligence from the United States and Britain helped build the federal case.
At least some of that information came from the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation and the London Metropolitan Police in Britain, says an affidavit filed by the RCMP in Federal Court.
