Abdelhaleem got his life sentence "for his role in a homegrown terror plot to detonate bombs at the Toronto offices of CSIS, the Toronto Stock Exchange and an Ontario military base." So he wanted to commit mass murder of the kuffar, on the grand scale, but he nonetheless has in abundance the characteristic Islamic supremacist chutzpah we have seen so often: the petulant whining, the claiming of victim status, the charges of racism and Islamophobia. "He asked the judge to sentence him as if he were a 'white Catholic and not a Muslim.'" Oh yes, Canadian courts are notoriously gentle with white Catholic would-be mass murderers.
"Convicted Toronto 18 member handed life sentence," from CTV News, March 4 (thanks to Sr. Soph):
Shareef Abdelhaleem, the final member of the Toronto 18 to be sentenced for his crimes, has been handed a life sentence with no chance of parole for 10 years.
Abdelhaleem, 35, was sentenced Friday just before noon for his role in a homegrown terror plot to detonate bombs at the Toronto offices of CSIS, the Toronto Stock Exchange and an Ontario military base. He was found guilty last year of participating in a terrorist group and intending to cause an explosion.
Ahead of his sentence, Shareef delivered a 23-minute rambling speech, in which he claimed he never intended to harm anyone. He also said that Canadians have been silent on the blatant injustice of his case.
He asked the judge to sentence him as if he were a "white Catholic and not a Muslim."
Justice Fletcher Dawson responded that his decision had nothing to do with Abdelhaleem's religious affiliation....
No doubt about that. After all, we're talking about Canada here.
