Yeah, Dalton... you're so right

We sure wouldn't want any government input, or oversight... of something like this...

Egyptian-born Mahmoud Jaballah came to Canada in 1996 on a false Saudi passport and claimed refugee status.

Along with his wife Husnah Al-Mashtoul they founded and ran the Um Al-Qura Islamic school located in Scarborough, Ontario which still remains open and is apparently approved by the Ontario Ministry of Education as a private school.
Oh yeah... one other small detail...
He was released seven months later but was arrested again under a new security certificate because it was found that his fingerprints matched those of Egyptian Islamic Jihad leader Mahmoud Said that were released by Interpol.
Read the whole thing at the Broom.

FROM THE COMMENTS:
"If you want to volunteer to help at playschool you need a police check done. You don't need to if you're starting a private school?"

UPDATE: Looks like Um Al-Qura's website is down

Commentary on the web suggests they may have decided to proof it a little more...
"Toronto school founded by terrorist Mahmoud Jaballah doesn't teach hate."

"No, it teaches the foreign language known as "Frinch." And "english grammer". And "histories"."
Hang on... there's apparently a mirror site on Angelfire where you can check out their "mission statment".

RELATED: Funny how that works doesn't work
Considering the gravity of the July 21 bombings, you'd think a story of BBC complicity in protecting wanted terrorists would find a spot much higher on the international news food chain.

Jeepers,

If you want to volunteer to help at playschool you need a police check done. You don't neeed to if your starting a private school?

Wonder what sort of nonsense they are teaching at this school? How to be a good Canadian is not the top class I would guess.

"anon whines... Weren't the Conservatives in power when these terrorists came to Ontario in 1996?"

lemme guess, brainiac... you're an alumnus of the prestigious "um al-qura school"?

"Joseph Jacques Jean Chr├ętien (Liberal Party of Canada) held the office of the Prime Minister of Canada for over a decade from November 4, 1993, to December 11, 2003."

The idiot probably meant provincially. But the provinces (with the exception of Quebec) do not handle immigration. True, they handle education... but not letting the flies in the kitchen in the first place.
