Omar Khadr and the Invisible Kid
I love this UNICEF message. It's one of the best messages against bullying and violence against children I have ever seen.
But for some reason it also makes me think of our invisible kid, Omar Khadr. And makes me wonder who will protect him from the depravity of Vic Toews?
The Harper government has thrown up a fresh roadblock to repatriating convicted al-Qaeda terrorist and murderer Omar Khadr to Canada, saying Washington must first hand over videotapes of allegedly disturbing psychiatric interviews with the Guantanamo prisoner.
Dr. Welner, a New York psychiatrist for the prosecution, testified during the sentencing phase of Mr. Khadr’s trial that the Canadian poses grave risks if freed because he was a remorseless, unrepentant murderer regarded by radical jihadists as “al-Qaeda royalty” who could be expected to take a leadership role in the violent struggle to destroy Western civilization.
For who is this Dr Welner, the one Ezra Levant quotes extensively in his new and revolting book on Khadr? Read this and weep.
Or better still get angry at the loathsome Con zombie Toews, who is breaking a deal, catering to bigots, making a mockery of the law, threatening us ALL.
Omar Khadr is a citizen of this country. What you think of him doesn’t matter. He is a citizen. And if the government can do this to him, it can do this to any citizen. That’s why this isn’t about Omar Khadr. It’s about you, me, and every Canadian.
And with his indecent intentions.
Shaming us beyond belief in the eyes of the world...
For let's be clear, what was done to this Canadian child soldier will haunt us forever. And only by saving him, can we hope to save ourselves.
So please sign this petition.
Enough is enough. Canada must keep its word — and Minister Toews must authorize Omar Khadr’s return without delay. A deal is a deal.
Romeo Dallaire is a decent Canadian. Vic Toews is a depraved monster. Ezra Levant is a freak of nature. The Cons are the scum of the earth.
And Omar Khadr lives HERE...
