Canada: Would-be jihad mass murderer says, “there is no such thing as moderate or radical Islam” — “there is only one Islam”


So when a devout Muslim says there is no moderate Islam, there is no radical islam, Islam is Islam,  it's not islamophobic. Righteous, perhaps? And when the Taliban say it? I can't keep up. When Obama's most trusted and favorite ally, the Prime Minister of Turkey, says it, it's not islamophobic either. Respect it! But when analysts, scholars or critics of Islam say it, it's islamophobic. Get it? Neither does anyone else.

The devout Muslim who plotted to blow up the passenger train from NY to Toronto dismisses the legitimacy of
Canada's legal system. He insists he wants an attorney who will use the
Qur'an as a reference instead of the Criminal Code. This jihadist was a chemical engineer. He also pursued the idea of a biological attack that would kill hundreds of thousands. Well educated and affluent, dispelling once again the leftist/Islamic supremacist myth that Muslims go jihad because they are uneducated and poverty stricken. But facts are irrelevant when masking the motive of the most vicious enemy of our freedom and very way of life. 

"Train terror suspect: 9-11 was a 'tap on the cheek," The Canadian Press, September 26, 2013  (thanks to Robert Spencer)

One of the Via terror suspects has called the 9-11 attacks a "tap on the cheek" compared to the violence committed by the West.

Chiheb Esseghaier is quoted telling La Presse in a prison interview
that the Iraq embargo, Afghanistan conflict and support for Israel are
examples of the West "plunging a knife into the body" of the Muslim
world, by comparison.

La Presse says that, over the course of two interviews, Esseghaier
never denied the charges against him. He is one of two people accused of
plotting to cause a train disaster in the Niagara region.

According to the newspaper the Tunisian-born scientist also appeared
to offer a vaguely worded hint that he is far from unique: "I am only a
drop of water in the sea. A detail,
" he is quoted as having repeated
multiple times.

Esseghaier is also quoted saying that there is no such thing
as moderate or radical Islam — that "there is only one Islam" and only
one God.

He says he only became immersed in religion after arriving at the University of Sherbrooke, when he read from books and websites about Islam and joined a Muslim students' association and began attending a local mosque.

Beforehand, in his native Tunisia, Esseghaier says he didn't even
grow his beard because his parents were constantly on him about what
friends he was making. Esseghaier is quoted telling La Presse that, "I
wasn't well," back in Tunisia.

Esseghaier has failed to hire a lawyer, dismissing the legitimacy of
Canada's legal system. He insists he wants an attorney who will use the
Qur'an as a reference instead of the Criminal Code.

Esseghaier and his fellow accused, Raed Jaser, will be in Superior
Court in Toronto on Oct. 21 so a judicial pretrial, the next stage in
the court process, can be set. Jaser can have a bail hearing

In his last court appearance, Esseghaier refused a female police officer's attempt to escort him from the courtroom.

"You are not my wife," he said, insisting on being escorted away by a man.

His request was accommodated, with a male guard escorting him away. That
decision has drawn complaints in Quebec, in the midst of a broader
debate in the province over religious accommodation.

In a separate story today, the newspaper reported that police
evidence includes a video of two men milling about the Whirlpool Rapids
Bridge at night.

The alleged plot is said to have targeted a train that travels from
New York City to Ontario, operated by U.S. rail service Amtrak south of
the border and Via Rail staff in Canada.
