Don't you love how these savages who plot and plan to slaughter thousands in the name of allah then admonish us and condescend to us when thwarted?
Not only did soldier of allah Esseghaier plot to derail the Toronto-bound train, but also among the attacks he and the others proposed were poisoning the air or water,
resulting in the deaths of up to 100,000 people, officials said.
"God will send natural disasters to ‘punish’ nations that ‘spread secularism,’ VIA Rail terror suspect warns court" National Post, July 27, 2013
A Tunisian terror
suspect accused of plotting to derail a Toronto-bound Via passenger train
delivered a rambling diatribe in court Friday, suggesting the 2004 Indonesian
tsunami was “punishment from God,” while the loss of life on 9/11 was “no
comparison” to this catastrophic event.
Chiheb Esseghaier, 30,
who was representing himself at a hearing on whether to unseal search warrants
related to the Via plot, also lashed out at what he called a “godless
civilization,” and warned of possible retribution from above.
“There is something
extremely more serious that you didn’t worry about, which is the punishment of
God,” Mr. Esseghaier told the court during a lengthy rant that focused largely
on his long-standing refusal to recognize Canadian laws.
“The Criminal Code of
Canada is not holy book coming from God,” said Mr. Esseghaier, clad in an orange
prison jumpsuit and a heavy black beard. “The human is not perfect… so the laws
are not perfect. How can we make a judgement by laws that are not
But before he got
there, Mr. Esseghaier spiralled into a bizarre rant about the 2004 tsunami,
which killed hundreds of thousands of Indonesians. He portrayed it as God’s
response to a “godless civilization,” going on to assert that the 3,000 lives
lost in the 9/11 terrorist attacks were “no comparison” — and suggesting worse
fates may be in store for those who “spread secularism.”
Esseghaier added: “I am not perfect. I do not know the
dramatic pronouncements overshadowed the search-warrant issue, which will be
decided later this year. A media coalition, represented by lawyer Peter
Jacobsen, has spent two days arguing for access to the documents, while lawyers
for the Crown and defence contend the unsealing could jeopardize the accused’s
fair-trial interests and harm “innocent third parties.”Mike Faille/National

Mr. Esseghaier and his
co-accused, 35-year-old Raed Jaser, were arrested in April following an
eight-month RCMP investigation. Accused of an al-Qaeda-linked plot to kill
passengers on a New York to Toronto train, both stand charged with conspiracy to
commit murder in association with a terrorist group, while a third suspect,
Ahmed Abassi, 26, faces related charges in the United States.
Earlier Friday, a
seemingly benign reference to Mr. Esseghaier’s name caused another outburst.
Upon hearing his name mentioned in passing by the defence, Mr. Esseghaier jumped
to his feet and tore into Mr. Jaser’s lawyer, John Norris: “I don’t have any
connection to him. Why do he always refer to my name?… He’s not my
Judge Durno quickly
interjected, noting there was “nothing wrong” with a lawyer speaking about one
or both of the accused. For his part, Mr. Jaser, in a light-blue collared shirt
and dark beard, remained silent throughout Friday’s hearing.
