“Habib’s family members said the photo with the AK47 rifle was taken in jest when Habib was visiting Turkey.” Ismail Habib has quite a sense of humor, all right. What could be funnier than an AK47? But his kaffir targets aren’t laughing.

“Montrealer linked to suspected terrorism may have spent time in Syria,” CBC News, March 10, 2016:

Radio-Canada has learned that a Montreal man, who was arrested last week in Gatineau, Que., on suspicion that he may be planning a terrorist act, might have spent time in Syria.

Several sources told CBC’s French-Language station that Ismael Habib, 28, might have travelled to Syria a few years ago.

Radio-Canada has also obtained a video that shows a man who is portraying himself as an ISIS fighter.

There is no way to prove whether or not he is indeed a member of ISIS.

In the video, the man makes threats against Habib. He shows some documents, which include what appears to be a copy of Habib’s passport as well as Habib’s marriage certificate from his 2012 wedding in Montreal.

Several people close to Habib also said that they have also received threats from someone saying they were with ISIS.

There’s also a photo of Habib carrying an assault rifle, with his finger pointing skyward in apparent reference to Allah.

Habib’s family members said the photo with the AK47 rifle was taken in jest when Habib was visiting Turkey. They explained that he was there, for several months, three or four years ago.

His family says Habib’s very religious, prays every day, but they do not believe he has taken part in any terrorist acts.
Arrested in Gatineau

Habib was arrested in Gatineau last week. He was charged with criminal harassment, uttering threats, and forging documents.

Habib faces no terrorism charges, but the RCMP has reason to suspect he may be planning a terrorist act….

    Disgusting!

    Islam has no place in a civilized democratic society. It’s teaching are primitive and incompatible with western civilization. Just look at the world. It is a scourge to the earth. Speak up before it’s too late.

    No immigration, no tolerance, no diversity. We want peace, security, and liberty.

    We can no longer afford to “split the pot” with everyone who wants a piece, especially with “refugees” from the Middle East. It’s too risky. America is struggling enough as it is. Most of us are making below living wage and just had our health insurance forcefully taken away. I make 60k per year and my healthcare is up to $400 per month; compare this to my $25/month car insurance (from Insurance Panda) or my $10/month renters insurance. Both private enterprise (take note, Obama). Do we really want our tax dollars aiding these terrorists?

    It’s not racist or islamophobia to want to live in a free nation established on Christian values and anyone that says so is bigoted against you. When they get the majority you can guarantee they will force sharia law upon you. That is what they are taught.

    These people are very dangerous and we need responsible government to take them seriously. The koran teaches them Islamic supremacy, hatred towards us non-Muslims, and hostility. It is a bad ideology (Islam) that hates us non-Muslims.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Here is a list of hate, quoted directly from the qur’an, would it please the islamic scholars to compare these quotes with what they find offensive other beliefs. And post the results.

      A list of Quran hate quotes

      From JihadWatch (September 14) — Does the Quran teach hate? Let’s see:

      2:65 Allah transforms disobedient Jews into apes

      “And well you know there were those among you [Jews] that transgressed the Sabbath, and We said to them, ‘Be you apes, miserably slinking!’

      2:89 Unbelievers, particularly Jews, are accursed

      “When there came to them [Jews] a Book from Allah, confirming what was with them — and they aforetimes prayed for victory over the unbelievers — when there came to them that they recognized, they disbelieved in it; and the curse of Allah is on the unbelievers.

      2:191-193 Fight and kill unbelievers until “religion is Allah’s,” i.e. Islamic law rules all societies

      “And slay them wherever you come upon them, and expel them from where they expelled you; persecution is more grievous than slaying. But fight them not by the Holy Mosque until they should fight you there; then, if they fight you, slay them — such is the recompense of unbelievers, but if they give over, surely Allah is All-forgiving, All-compassionate. Fight them, till there is no persecution and the religion is Allah’s; then if they give over, there shall be no enmity save for evildoers.”

      3:28 Don’t take unbelievers as friends and allies, unless it is for “fear of them,” i.e. deceptively for protection of oneself or of Islam

      “Let not the believers take the unbelievers for friends, rather than the believers — for whoso does that belongs not to Allah in anything — unless you have a fear of them. Allah warns you that You beware of Him, and unto Allah is the homecoming.”

      3:110-112 Muslims are the best of people, Jews have earned Allah’s anger

      “You are the best nation ever brought forth to men, bidding to honour, and forbidding dishonour, and believing in Allah. Had the People of the Book believed, it were better for them; some of them are believers, but the most of them are ungodly. They will not harm you, except a little hurt; and if they fight with you, they will turn on you their backs; then they will not be helped. Abasement shall be pitched on them, wherever they are come upon, except they be in a bond of Allah, and a bond of the people; they will be laden with the burden of Allah’s anger, and poverty shall be pitched on them; that, because they disbelieved in Allah’s signs, and slew the Prophets without right; that, for that they acted rebelliously and were transgressors.”

      3:151 Allah will cast terror into the unbelievers’ hearts

      “We will cast into the hearts of the unbelievers terror, for that they have associated with Allah that for which He sent down never authority; their lodging shall be the Fire; evil is the lodging of the evildoers.”

      3:181 Jews are bound for hell

      “Allah has heard the saying of those who said, ‘Surely Allah is poor, and we are rich.’ We shall write down what they have said, and their slaying the Prophets without right, and We shall say, ‘Taste the chastisement of the burning.’”

      4:34 Beat disobedient women

      “Men are the managers of the affairs of women for that Allah has preferred in bounty one of them over another, and for that they have expended of their property. Righteous women are therefore obedient, guarding the secret for Allah’s guarding. And those you fear may be rebellious admonish; banish them to their couches, and beat them. If they then obey you, look not for any way against them; Allah is All-high, All-great.”

      4:160 Jews do evil, turn people away from Allah

      “And for the evildoing of those of Jewry, We have forbidden them certain good things that were permitted to them, and for their barring from Allah’s way many…”

      5:33 Crucify or amputate the hands and feet of those who make war against Allah and Muhammad

      “This is the recompense of those who fight against Allah and His Messenger, and hasten about the earth, to do corruption there: they shall be slaughtered, or crucified, or their hands and feet shall alternately be struck off; or they shall be banished from the land. That is a degradation for them in this world; and in the world to come awaits them a mighty chastisement.”

      5:41 Jews listen to falsehood and pervert the meaning of their Scriptures

      “O Messenger, let them not grieve thee that vie with one another in unbelief, such men as say with their mouths ‘We believe’ but their hearts believe not; and the Jews who listen to falsehood, listen to other folk, who have not come to thee, perverting words from their meanings, saying, ‘If you are given this, then take it; if you are not given it, beware!’ Whomsoever Allah desires to try, thou canst not avail him anything with Allah. Those are they whose hearts Allah desired not to purify; for them is degradation in this world; and in the world to come awaits them a mighty chastisement.”

      5:51 Don’t take Jews and Christians as friends and allies

      “O believers, take not Jews and Christians as friends; they are friends of each other. Whoso of you makes them his friends is one of them. Allah guides not the people of the evildoers.”

      5:59-60 Jews cursed, made into apes and swine

      “Say: ‘People of the Book, do you blame us for any other cause than that we believe in Allah, and what has been sent down to us, and what was sent down before, and that most

        You cannot just get rid of him, this is who most of Canada’s voters chose! – just as most American voters chose Barry – twice! Just watch them now choose liar and criminal, Hillary Clinton, over Trump. The ‘brilliance’ is never ending!!

    • Rob Porter

      Mike, you are right. The bright spark, Trudeau, says he’s ‘reaching out across cultural lines’ and by bringing in these Muslim immigrants ‘investing in Canada’s future economy’ – when many are illiterate!! Brilliant thinking!

  • stephen5970

    With Baby Trudeau (pronounced True-Doh!) at the helm, its only a matter of time before this “joker” will be invited to 24 Sussex for an official apology and dinner with the Mindless Prince and Princess. Great photo op for Justin, with Sasha (aka his brother Alexandre – one of his puppet masters) sitting in to regale everyone with stories about his work and time in Iran and paid by Iran.

    Oh joy!

  • Stephen Honig

    Joke my ass! Why is it that most good mother’s protect their evil child. They should say nothing.

  • Of course he family would say he was just jesting. But they also say he’s very religious. That would make him a devout Muslim and we all know that devout Muslims believe in violent jihad.

    • IslamophobicCanadianAthiest

      So he was joking about is-lame? Off with his head.
      He was joking and a devout moderate terrorist ? Off with his head.

      send him to Alberta so khadar can teach him bomb making 101.

  • IslamophobicCanadianAthiest

    Gotta admit them jihads sure do have a funny sense of humor OK to pose with a real AK but lawn art or drawings piss them off?.

  • Karee Bearance

    Will be re-reading The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis, a fiction of how Satan lies to us and how we buy it hook, line and sinker. Reminds me of today and how we are being lied to by Islam and we dont even know it or dont care one of the two!
