In April 2004 the United Talmud Torahs School in St. Laurent a suburb of Montreal, was firebombed. There were no injuries, but the school’s library was destroyed only able to re-open eight months later. Nineteen year old Sleiman Elmerhebi pleaded guilty to the crime and received a prison sentence just shy of four years. He was motivated to commit the crime as a retaliatory action for the Israeli army’s killing of the leader of the Hamas militant group.
At the time, Rouba Elmerhebi Fahd the terrorists mother, was charged with being an accessory after the fact to the firebombing. She pleaded not guilty to the charge and was released on $10,000 bail. Shortly after her son was apprehended, Elmerhebi Fahd contacted a travel agency requesting a ticket to Brazil for her son. She made it clear that he was not to fly through the United States and urged him to keep the planned trip a secret.
Yesterday, almost four years later after her son’s guilty plea and incarceration, she appeared in a Montreal court and was handed her sentence: She received twelve months probation.
Mom Elmerhebi Fahd showed no remorse.
Although Quebec Court judge Robert Machi was firm in stating that the firebombing was more than mere vandalism calling the crime an act terrorism, his ruling was primarily based on the fact that Fahd had “no prior criminal record and wasn’t the one who firebombed the school”.
This slap on the wrist is a slap in the face.
Ask any parent worth their weight in salt and they will tell you that parenting is a hard job at the best of times. It is a struggle to raise children to become thoughtful, considerate, well adjusted and responsible members of society. This woman apparently has quite a different parenting style, one which condones and promotes the hatred of Jews and violent acts of terror against them. Her utter unapologetic conviction to raise her children to live by the twisted rules of a transplanted sense of ‘Islamic justice’ through terrorism against the state of Israel in Canada should make her at the very least, a child abuser and a threat to this nation. What have her other two children learned from her?
Any mother who would raise her children with such supreme hatred by spoon feeding them a mandate of violence, bigotry and ignorance straight from the womb, deserves contempt, ridicule and a far harsher sentence than this saccharin coated probation.
I wonder if she penciled in play dates with Canada’s First Family of Terror, the Khadr’s?
