Suaad Mohamud - the untold story

Hmmm... perhaps it wasn't the Conservative brownshirts after all...

Leading the pack in this regard has been the Toronto Star's Christopher Hume who, as already noted, uncorked an unhinged rant citing the episode as evidence that Canada has become an "apartheid" state.

But who is the Canadian Vice Consul in Kenya — the Canadian government's main actor on this case, and the person who allegedly persuaded the Kenyans to lock Mohamud up?

Following the logic of Hume, one would assume she is some neo-Nazi thug who Harper picked up off the streets of Calgary and dispatched to Africa with instructions to keep the blacks out of our backyards.

Oops: As highlighted in the following Muslim Canadian Congress press release, turns out the woman is a female Egyptian-Canadian bureaucrat.

In other words — to the entirely unproven extent we are dealing with any kind of racial animus at all — what we are allegedly confronting is not White-on-black racism, but Arab-on-black racism (the same kind of racism behind the extermination of hundreds of thousands of blacks in Darfur).

Arabs vs. blacks? Not quite as sexy as "apartheid," is it Mr. Hume?

FROM THE COMMENTS:
"And here I thought Harper reviewed the vacation travel plans of all Canadians."

RELATED: Hey, no big deal...

...just blame it on Stephen Harper...
That's what Michael Ignatieff is doing.

Hmmm... does accusing someone of being a racist qualify as an "attack ad"?

WELCOME READERS OF "BEEFCAKE BOBBY DAY" AKA CANADIAN CYNIC (174.113.191.234)

Since being outed, nasty little Bobby has been keeping his head down. I'm actually a little surprised he isn't trying to blame this one on the Jews.
And, of course, who would be on board with CC's misogyny and anti-semitism... that paragon of social justice... Deputy Dawg.
**********

LAST WORD: A law suit... yeah, I'm shocked
Boulakia also dismissed comments by Lucas Naikuni, a Kenyan lawyer, who said in Nairobi on Friday that Mohamud would be taking legal action against the Canadian government, the Kenyan government and KLM.

When asked if his client might pursue legal action in Canada, Boulakia would only say, "At this point I want her to get medical care and then I'm going to be having discussions with her."

Hume should shut it, and stick to glorifying ugly buildings.

There is also the detail that the woman who came off the plane was photographed and the woman who was then trying to get on the plane did not match the photograph.

It was the Kenyan security at the airport who caught this. It was not just the passport photo.

So, was there an attempt to bait and switch (some say her sister or anothr relative) and then when caught the original Canadian came back and said it was all a big mistake?

An investigation is, indeed, required. Methinks this woman may not like all of the details to come out in the wash as they will.

There are reports that this kind of identity switch happens about 5 times per day from Kenya so it is not like they are not watching for it.

And here I though Harper reviewed the vacation travel plans of all Canadians.

I think you are trying to read too much into this. Assuming for the sake of argument there was some attempted identity switch, in a controlled airport security zone, how would the bogus person evade detention by authorities and the proper Canadian citizen end up in their custody. Sounds like some Mission Impossible episode. If I was a bogus person trying to pull some boarding scam, wouldn't it be a lot simpler simply to pay the bribe to security, if that's what it takes.

"dupmar says... you are trying to read too much into this"

well, dup... i actually haven't been following this one too closely. i'm simply passing on jon kay's take on the situation.

something sure wasn't right here... i guess that's why the prime minister is asking for clarification...

"On Thursday, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said his government has asked for a full accounting of how the Canada Border Services Agency handled Ms. Mohamud's case and will review its actions."

after all... passports, these days, are not inconsequential documents... forgery or loss can have far-reaching consequences...

"members of the Khadr family “lost” their passports as many as six times pre-9/11, when Canada, like many Western nations, digitized its passports making them harder to counterfeit."

i'm sure ms. mohamud, coming from a lawless, war-torn country like somalia... can appreciate the government's concerns about security.

I cannot remember the name of that dumb woman who ended up languishing in a Mexican jail until we grudgingly helped her out.

However I do remember she was white. So much for the whole, Harper would lead the charge if she was white idiocy that Hume is spewing.

I'm sick of the whole race card being thrown out there every time.

"langmann says... the name of that dumb woman who ended up languishing in a Mexican jail"

you mean the woman the fiberals & dippers went absolutely apeshit about... stirring the msm up into an ugly feeding frenzy?

yeah... that'd be brenda martin... and please, please, please... don't get me started.

langmann said...

Yeah Neo I remember her smug face well. And I remember the bitching when she got back here because Canada wasn't a tropical paradise...

Honestly the next idiot that brings up the race card on prime time without real proof deserves a public caning.

Its really starting to piss me off.

However I bet this whole issue will wander off into the night now that everyone sees its some woman of Egyptian background and no-one will want to go there.

Non-muslim African vs. Muslim is not a new thing. Where else do we get crass, racist terms like Kaffir, Kooly (sp?), etc.

So bravo for pointing out that racism cuts all ways, affects everyone, infects every race, etc.

I'm not sure that this was a case of racism as much as it was a case of incompetence, post-incompetence face-saving, and for the Harper government in particular, incompetence coupled with a general indifference to the plight of others.

It's the 'civil' service that runs these shows, regardless of who is in power..ministers only get involved in these matters after the merde hits the fan.

When you go back home to visit these disgusting barbaric hell holes, you should go with the thought, you might not be coming back.

Why is it Canada's fault you are stupid and are taking a chance of being detained, tortured or killed?

I'm amazed at well this woman was ale to dupe everyone. It must have taken great skill to pull off the exact fingerprint match and the 99.9% DNA match. Furthermore, how much did they pay her 12 yr old son to pretend this was his mommy at the airport in Toronto on this impostor's return to Canada?

Amazing cunning. But to be fair, they all look alike.

Neo Conservative said...

"nonny-mouse shrieks... they all look alike"

what a racist thing to say.

and you actually think the kenyan authorities, who arrested, processed and detained this woman were all conspiring against her?

why would they do that?

i think i'll wait for the results of the investigation the prime minister has ordered.

Regardless, the lady that got off the plane does not look like the lady we have seen photos of without glasses. My suspicious mind will demand dna samples taken from the son and her and demand all the testing be done on live tv. Any cdn who come here from some african country should sign a pledge that if they go home to visit and get in trouble, they will agree to be left there.
Oh, did you hear, she is ill, might have TB or something else. So, why was she allowed to spread this disease around in the airport, or on the plane.
And just think, her lawyer was able to access a doctor, by phone at 10.00p.m. to see how/what to do about her illness. Oh, and the lawyer also mentioned torture.
I think we about to be scammed again aka Arar.
Oh, a sister's dna would match as a family member. Where was the dna testing done. Unless Grissom did it, I don't trust the results. lol.

maryT said...

Remember, Brenda Martin wants to return to Mexico. Jail there is better than life here.
Perhaps we should ban travel to any african country to avoid another Arar wannabe.

"maryt says... Jail there is better than life here."

well, actually she's expecting a pardon from the mexican government.

just another victim.

She was not returning home. She is Somalian by birth, not Kenyan. Canada is her home now.

These kind of statements by people like Honeypot reflect the ignorance of the commenter. Having spent 2 years photographing Kenya, I can assure you that it is a spectacular part of the planet.

I fail to see how Ms. Mohamud was being stupid? She was traveling with a valid Canadian passport to visit her mother. Hardly an uncommon occurance. How many Canadians return to other parts of the world to visit family each year? Are you only to aspire to return for a visit to old country if it happens to be Great Britain?

The fact that Honeypot's viscous comments remain unchallenged by Neo Conservative acts an indiciation of his own beliefs.

"cc-nonymous says... Honeypot's viscous comments"

viscous? you mean like 10w30?

and bobby... i'm letting most of your obnoxious trolls through most of the time... you really think i should be telling everyone else what to think & say?

perhaps someone who constantly refers to women in the most vile fashion and is constantly making references to jews running the world should be a little less finicky about other folk's comments.

just a thought.

and hey... why don't you just man-up and drop the anonymous thing.

it's not like you're fooling anyone.

Kateland, aka TZH said...

Kay's column is bordering on libellous, in fact, it probably has crossed the line nor would it be the first time an NP columnist lead the paper into a libel and defamation charge. The very fact you are repeating here can lay you open to charges as well.

Neither you nor Kay knows with any surety whether the agent of the government in question is a racist...what I don't follow is how either of you made that determination. Wait for Harper all you want but he has yet to come clean and announce a public inquiry and until he does, its a huge ulgy festering sore on his governance.

I can't decide if you are just another stooge for the CPC or this is how you really think. and you actually think the kenyan authorities, who arrested, processed and detained this woman were all conspiring against her? The Kenyan authorities would never have arrested, processed or detained her in jail if an agent of the government of Canada had not voided her passport in the first place. She showed more ID than I possess nor is it 'unCanadian' to visit one's sick mother – although if I remember correctly from a previous posting you attempted to mock me as a mother for wanting to watch out of for the well-being of my minor son, but mockery and hate-mongering is all the Halls has ever been about isn't it?

"kateland says... but mockery and hate-mongering is all the Halls has ever been about isn't it?"

nope... but i'm sure there are plenty of people over at 'cesspool central" who are cheering you on here, kate.

maybe though, you should read the kay article a little bit slower...

"In other words — to the entirely unproven extent we are dealing with any kind of racial animus at all — what we are allegedly confronting is not White-on-black racism, but Arab-on-black racism (the same kind of racism behind the extermination of hundreds of thousands of blacks in Darfur)."

you wanna be one of those folks who whips out the race card at every opportunity, that is your privilige.

you'd be in some fine company... jeremiah wright & al sharpton and henry gates... to name a few.

then again, kate... you might just wanna take a few deep, cleansing breaths here... before you jump off the edge of hysteria mountain.

just a thought.

I'd like to see the results of the investigation.
The whole issue hinges on how the pic in her passport didn't look like her.
Very simple question, is that her picture in her passport, or not?
I don't remember having to supply a DNA sample when I applied for my passport to validate the photo I submitted.
My point?
The DNA verified she was who she said she was, it didn't verify the photo.
Again real simple question she can respond to very quickly and save us all a great deal of legal wrangling and million dollar billings by ambulance chasing lawyers.
Is it her picture in the passport, or is it someone elses?
Surely if she is innocent she will respond yes and the government can cut the cheque and she can resume a normal life
