Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government reached a new plateau of transcendental thinking, when it announced that Canadians returning from fighting for ISIS in Syria & Iraq will be ‘re-habilitated’ rather than prosecuted or killed.
Whilst most other Western nations have stated that the only practical solution is for their domestic ISIS fighters to be killed in country and not return, the Trudeau government is offering hugs and hot chocolate to those who have been busy decapitating children in the name of Allah.
U.S. Special Envoy, Brett McGurk stated explicitly on a recent visit to Syria. “Our mission is to make sure that any foreign fighter who is here, who joined ISIS from a foreign country and came into Syria, that they will die here in Syria.”
France, too, is working to eradicate its jihadis overseas. A Wall Street Journal investigation published in May quoted French and Iraqi officials describing French special forces co-operating with Iraqi units to hunt down and kill French jihadis.
Whilst The Sunday Times reports that Britain’s Special Air Service, SAS, has been given a “kill list” of British jihadis, including notorious ISIS recruiter and convert Sally Jones.
U.K government minister Rory Stewart said “Converts who leave Britain to fight for the terror group are guilty of horrific acts and the only way of dealing with them is to kill them “in almost every case”.
These countries, all of which have extensive experience at the business end of Islamic terrorism, appreciate that this is the only practical solution; to allow these people back into their countries is to expose their populations to almost certain acts of terror.
Canadian state apparatus, CBC pimped the official line dutifully when it echoed the statement made by Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale that “Canada does not engage in death squads.”
The irony that this statement should be made by a minister with the title of Public Safety Minister would be Pythonesque if it wasn’t so perverse.
Trudeau’s Liberals may find the prospect of killing Canadian Islamic fighters – which are estimated to number 200 in number – too distasteful to contemplate, but the Minister for Public Safety is clearly willing to provide safe passage for Islamic death squads returning home after defeat in Syria & Iraq, who will then be free to target Canadians at home as they have previously threatened.
None of this makes sense of course unless you are ideologically addled progressive for whom ideals trump reality and the safety of your citizens, whom you have been elected to protect and serve.
Canadians should be concerned that a rich kid like Trudeau, raised on pure ideology, should be in a position to knowingly endanger their families’ safety for the sake of a political indulgence.
If these returning Islamic fighters decide after the hugs and generous welfare offerings, that what Allah really wants is a truck attack on pedestrians, or a knife attack on shoppers, then Trudeau and his government of progressive impairment will be complicit in any deaths that follow.
