And Jdey is, of course, by no means alone in this: many other jihadis could return from the Islamic State to the U.S., Canada, Britain and Western Europe, and wreak havoc back “home.” By going to fight for the Islamic State, the jihadis have effectively declared themselves to be traitors, as the Islamic State has declared that it is at war with the U.S. and other Western countries. Thus they have forfeited the rights and privileges of citizens, and should not be allowed back into their countries of origin. But that, apparently, would be “Islamophobic.”
“Quebec jihadist may return to Canada to carry out terrorist attacks: Source close to CSIS,” by Normand Lester, QMI Agency, October 11, 2014:
MONTREAL — Abderraouf Jdey, a Quebec jihadist wanted by the FBI to the tune of $5 million, is among the Canadian terrorists abroad who authorities fear may return home to carry out attacks, a source close to CSIS told QMI Agency.
The FBI has offered a $5-million reward for any info leading to Jdey, a Tunisian-born Montrealer suspected of attempting to commit terrorist attacks in Canada and the U.S.
Last seen in Montreal in November 2001, he’s currently believed to be fighting in Somalia with al-Shabaab, an extremist Islamic militia linked to al-Qaida.
Photos of Jdey and four of his associates have been plastered all over the Ugandan capital of Kampala and along the East African country’s border after authorities there received information the group was planning attacks in the country.
Originally from Tunisia, Jdey arrived in Montreal in the early ’90s as a political refugee.
He later became a Canadian citizen, which gave him the ability travel the world freely with his Canadian passport to attend various jihadist operations.
He lived alone in a small Montreal apartment between 1991 and 1999, before heading to Afghanistan to attend Osama bin Laden-led terrorist training camp. Before that, he was a student at the Universite du Quebec a Montreal.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, one of his fellow students described Jdey as a nice guy and a good person who was radicalized by the teachings of a local mosque….
Has that mosque been shut down yet? Investigated? Why not?
