Canada: Muslim sentenced to 26 years for orchestrating suicide attack on US troops


Faruq Khalil Muhammad is an Iraqi national who was living in Edmonton, Canada. He was part of a jihad network that helped aspiring suicide bombers travel to Iraq. Muhammad was also regularly communicating with jihadists in Iraq, encouraging them to carry out terrorist attacks.

Sadly, 5 American soldiers were murdered by terrorists who were assisted and influenced by Muhammad. Canada needs a travel ban. However, under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau there is zero chance of that happening.

In recorded phone and electronic communications with numerous co-conspirators, including would-be suicide bombers and facilitators based in Iraq, ‘Isa often referred to carrying out terrorist attacks as getting “married,” as in marriage to 70 virgins or “farming,” because they “plant metal and harvest metal and flesh,” according to the Justice Department’s criminal complaint.

A Canadian man was sentenced to 26 years in prison for conspiring to kill five US soldiers in Iraq in a 2009 suicide attack.

Faruq Khalil Muhammad ‘Isa was a resident of Edmonton, Canada, and a member of a multinational network that helped those hoping to carry out suicide bombings travel to Iraq, according to the Department of Justice.

On April 10, 2009, a convoy of five vehicles carrying US soldiers was outside the Forward Operating Base Marez in Iraq when a dump truck, under fire by Iraqi guards, breached the checkpoint, passed four vehicles and detonated next to the fifth.

The blast left a 60-foot-deep crater about 50 yards outside of the base’s entrance.

The explosion killed several Iraqi citizens as well as five soldiers: Sgt. Edward Forrest Jr., PFC Bryce E. Gautier, Sgt. FC Bryan E. Hall, Cpl. Jason G. Pautsch and Staff Sgt. Gary L. Woods.

The Department of Justice said that while living in Canada, ‘Isa communicated with members of the terrorist network, some of whom carried out the attack, to facilitate their travel from Syria to Iraq and offer “words of encouragement and religious guidance.”
