Well, I guess "major attitude" IS a strategy

Faisal Shahabuddin, a member of the mosque's board when asked to explain how two members of the congregation had allegedly gotten themselves involved in the terror plot, stated, "Why should I explain if we don't know it's true?"
Let the healing begin.

well if the guy doesn't know if it's true yet, what exactly do you want him to explain?

Or, is the assumption that all the muslims on that board are secretly conspiring in terror plots?

In that case yes it would be major attitude.

If he was a board member of note, he might have served his members better to leave any hint of attitude behind.

He might have offered to be available to the community and citizens of Canada, for any questions they have as the process moves along.

That does not not mean automatic assumptions of anything.

BUT, questions are there for the many others, and the doubts are rising for the safety of our families.

so... a couple of your congregants get busted for terrorism-related activities... and your attitude isn't... well, yes we're concerned... it's "prove it, kaffir"!

if you actually believe the infidel government is framing your people... maybe you'd be more comfortable back in the old country.

funny how "sensitivity" always seems to be a one-way street.

First, no one has been convicted. And secondly, I haven't read anyone accusing our "infidel government" of framing anyone.

It is one thing to denounce terrorism, quite another to publicly convict someone without due process.

I'm in no way suggesting letting anyone go, or being soft on, er, crime. Before anyone gets too excited.

sure, nonny... you're all about the process.

the cops arrested these guys after they confiscated circuit boards designed to set off ieds.

or maybe you believe the cops manufactured that story?

let's see how you feel when the first bombs go off.

these guys are gonna get their due process. you don't like it... or don't trust the authorities... try moving to, say... yemen.

whoa. Dude you need to chill. I guess you missed this part, perhaps I'll bold it:

Yes I am about the process, that's one the basic rights of this country, though as a strong conservative supporter, I can understand how these things aren't of any value.

Once again, when someone is arrested in a community, or b=company/corporation etc., people often, not just muslims, have no comment until they have more information beyond the initial arrests, and have had their day in court. I merely pointing this seemingly little known fact around here.

This is NO WAY, means giving anyone, a free pass, letting go, or siding with someone who has been charged with a crime.

Please point out, where I said I "didn't like" the due process, or "don't trust authorities".

thank you.

I made an observation based on your assertion that people are tried convicted before actually going to court and being, convicted.

If that was in error, sorry.

But...
"these guys are gonna get their due process. you don't like it... or don't trust the authorities... try moving to, say... yemen."

You clearly said I didn't like due process, and I don't trust authorities, and that I should consider Yemen.

I never said, any such thing whatsoever.

sorry, nonny... go sell it over at liblogs.

attempting to hijack this comment thread is simply infantile... and, more to the point, boring.

At the risk of beating a dead thread - I heard on the Mothercorpse today that it actually was Pakistan's ISI who alerted Canadian authorities about this plot in the first place.
