Canadian Judge Grants Bail to Al-Qaeda Terrorist Omar Khadr

From Rebel Media

Omar Khadr “will become a celebrity of the anti-war, anti-Canadian left”

Canada’s dhimmi media loves this so-called “child soldier” but the average Canadian doesn’t share their affection. Especially after the Muslim terror attack on Parliament Hill. Khadr has never taken responsibility for his crimes or renounced Al Qaeda. He will now become a propaganda tool to demonize the West.

Terrorist Omar Khadr was granted bail today. Khadr is dangerous, but for different reasons than you might expect. Khadr is dangerous, but not because he’ll commit further terrorist acts.

He’s much more powerful and important as a propaganda tool.

Remember when the Ottawa Citizen gave Khadr an op-ed space to criticize Canada’s anti-terror policies?

That’s just the beginning.

We all know how the Media Party sticks up for their “child soldier.”

I also explain what experts say are the three signs a jihadist will re-offend, and look at which of these Khadr displays.

From Global News  …… Our lamestream media!

Omar Khadr was 15 years old when he was captured by U.S. forces in Afghanistan and convicted of killing an American soldier. Now in an Alberta prison, he’s been granted bail. But, he’s not a free man yet. Reid Fiest reports. 

Almost 13 years after American soldiers captured him as a grievously wounded 15-year-old boy in Afghanistan, Omar Khadr found himself tantalizingly close to his first taste of freedom on Friday after a judge granted him bail.

While his supporters were overjoyed at the unprecedented decision, a “disappointed” federal government immediately said it would appeal any interim release for the former Guantanamo Bay inmate.

“We have vigorously defended against any attempt to lessen his punishment,” Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney said in a statement.

Scarborough Centre MP Roxanne James said she was shocked by the decision and said that someone who was charged and plead guilty for such serious crimes should remain and serve their sentence behind bars.

“Sometimes we hear these arguments from the opposition trying to make a victim out of Omar Amed Khadr. On our side we believe the real victim of this heinous act is obviously American Army medic Christopher Speer who lost his life in this incident.”

Speer was the American Special Forces medic who was killed in 2002 in a battle in Khost Province, Afghanistan.

In her ruling, Court of Queen’s Bench Justice June Ross found that Khadr has a constitutional right to apply for bail pending his appeal of five war-crimes convictions before a widely discredited American military commission.

She accepted evidence that he presents a low risk to public safety and has been a model prisoner – even though the federal government has branded him a hardened terrorist.

“This is a circumstance where balancing a strong appeal and the public confidence in the administration of justice favour the same result,” Ross said in her decision.

“He has a strong basis for an appeal and the risk to public safety is not such that it is in the public’s best interest that he remain in pretrial detention in a manner that could render his appeal irrelevant.”

Ross did say Khadr would have to remain behind bars at least until May 5 while terms of his release are hammered out.

“Omar is fortunate to be back in Canada where we have real courts and real laws,” Nate Whitling, one of Khadr’s lawyers, said minutes after the decision.

“What you read in the paper from the government is a lot of hollow rhetoric.”

There was no immediate word from the U.S. State Department.

The Toronto-born Khadr, now 28, is currently in the Bowden Institution north of Calgary, where he is serving out an eight-year sentence handed down by the military commission in Guantanamo Bay in 2010.

The Canadian Press has learned he was reclassified as a minimum-security prisoner from medium in the last few days.

Khadr has said he only pleaded guilty to the war crimes he was accused of committing as a youth to get out of Guantanamo and be sent back to Canada.

Several prominent citizens in Edmonton – including academics and business people – offered their support for his bail application. His longtime lawyer, Dennis Edney, and wife, Patricia Edney, offered to take him into their home.

Patricia Edney welcomed the prospect in light of Ross’s decision.

“Sounds good to me,” she said.

Dennis Edney, who has long championed Khadr’s case, was thrilled at the unprecedented decision, which, he said, had been a long time coming.

“The Canadian government should never have allowed Omar to be in Guantanamo,” Edney said. “It should be held accountable for participating in his torture there.”

Whitling had argued that Khadr’s appeal of his conviction stood a good chance of success – especially in light of other American court decisions – but was dragging on, meaning it might not be resolved before his sentence expires.

For its part, the government argued Ross had no jurisdiction to hear the bail application from an offender convicted abroad and returned to Canada. Giving him bail would undermine Canada’s international relations and obligations, the government argued – a position Ross rejected.

It also urged her to take into account the fact that Khadr pleaded guilty to serious offences – including murder, in violation of the laws of war for the death of an American special forces soldier following a fierce firefight in Afghanistan in July 2002.

If he’s released, Khadr will have to get used to living in Canada. He lived with his family before his arrest mainly in Pakistan and in Taliban-controlled eastern Afghanistan. His father was an associate of Osama bin Laden and the family stayed for a time at the terror mastermind’s compound.

Edney rejected the government’s characterization of his client as terrorist.

“Canadians will see and meet a different Omar Khadr than the one wrongly portrayed by the Harper government,” he said.

Next month, the Supreme Court will hear the government’s appeal of an Alberta court’s decision that Khadr should have been treated as a juvenile offender. In June, he applies for parole for the first time. He is eligible for statutory release in October 2016, after serving two-thirds of his sentence, which expires in 2018.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

So….. He is not out yet. The federal government immediately launched an appeal of Judge Ross’s stupid decision to grant Khadr bail. I’m sure that if released that CSIS will be following every move he and his family make. Hope the Khadr’s screw up royally!

What does make me mad is the fact that he is even eligible for release in October 2016. He is a terrorist as was his father and his brother. His mother and sister have already stated before they are al-Qaeda supporters. How many times must they state the fact that they really do not like Canada before we ship them to Pakistan? Revoke their Canadian status and passports and get rid of the trash! Mom and sis are already packed into their Hefty Black garbage bags anyways!

I’m sure we will see a different Omar Khadr! One who is now a grown man and that much more dangerous to have in Canada! The Harper Gov’t. did not portray him wrongly! The truth is the truth! Justice June Ross is an idiot! Obviously doesn’t know what this man is capable of doing in the name of his satanic god. If he didn’t find it difficult when he was 15 Yrs. old…..he’ll have no trouble with it now.

    The judge’s decision is insane. Is an impeachment process against the judge underway? If not, why not? Clearly the judge is not serving justice nor is safeguarding the citizenry.

    • Blessed B. says:

      This was something that just transpired…. probably too soon to hear anything that may happen to this judge.

      Feds says the judge is not within her jurisdiction to make such a call. I agree! We only took this mudslime back into Canada cuz PM Chretian ( Liberal gov’t. at the time) made a deal to have him come back.

      He should have stayed at gitmo! He was a prisoner of war! A war in which he was involved in and subsequently killed an Army Medic…a soldier who was trying to help him!

      Khadr should not get out period! Even though he is well within his Constitutional rights as a Canadian to apply for bail. They transfer prisoners all the time to go to their court hearings and appeals. He doesn’t need to be out to appeal his five war-crimes convictions before an American military commission.

      Hoping the Harper Gov’t. here get their appeal heard by a judge that understands the facts better!

  2. Kathy says:

    The amounts of money that Canada and the US spend on justice for these guys is ridiculous, when they should just be put down like the rabid animals they are and stop wasting time.

    Just a glance at his history should have told the judge everything she needed to know. Guys like him don’t change.

    • Blessed B. says:

      I agree Kathy! They should just be executed by a firing squad or cut their heads off!

      At least the last two that tried to do terrorism in Canada got their just rewards! They were killed! No questions asked….no trial…..just bang! Guilty!

      Khadr’s whole family has been involved in terrorism….. he was breast fed it from the day he was born! It is so ingrained into him that there is no chance of him being anything else but a terrorist. He’s a natural born killer.

      I don’t think the judge even looked at his history or knows anything about his beliefs in the satanic cult….. if she did…then she really needs to be taken off her bench!
