Niagara Train Jihad: Moderate Muslims Yesterday, Jihadists Today


two jihadists behind the plot to bomb a VIA passenger train over Niagara Falls were Chiheb ESSEGHAIER and Raed JASER.

Highly educated, with access to the best engineering and science intel. What is equally disturbing is that there are many Muslims on his team at the research institute in Canada. What did they know and when did they know it?

Ottawa, April 22, 2013– Today,
the RCMP arrested two individuals and charged them with conspiring to
carry out a terrorist attack against a VIA passenger train. The accused
have been charged under sections 248, 235 (1), 83.2, 83.18, 83.21 of
the Criminal Code of Canada.  As a result of extensive
collaborative efforts, the RCMP was able to disrupt the threat early.
While the RCMP believed that these individuals had the capacity and
intent to carry out these criminal acts, there was no imminent threat to
the general public, rail employees, train passengers or infrastructure.

The two accused, Chiheb ESSEGHAIER and Raed JASER,
who live in the Montreal and Toronto area were conspiring to carry out a
terrorist attack against a VIA passenger train. Charges include
conspiring to carry out an attack against, and conspiring to murder
persons unknown for the benefit of, at the direction of, or in
association with a terrorist group.

Born in Tunis, Tunisia. I got Engineer degree in Industrial Biology from Institut National des Sciences Appliquées et de Technologie (INSAT) ,
Tunis in 2007. After that, I continue master studies at the same
institute in Industrial Biotechnology field and i got the MSc degree in
2008. Then, i moved to Sherbrooke University to
work on research project on SPR biosensor and gallium arsenide
semi-conductor biofunctionnalization. In November 2010, I joined  BBBL
lab in Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS) to start PhD program in developing optical and electrochemical biosensors.


On progress.

The Truth Must be Told

Your contribution supports independent journalism

Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared.
