One of six young Quebecers who may have joined jihadist groups briefly attended courses offered by Adil Charkaoui’s school.
MONTREAL—Adil Charkaoui is blasting a decision by two Montreal junior colleges to suspend leases granted to his Arabic schools.
The schools suspended the contracts Thursday in the wake of reports that six young Quebecers left the country in mid-January and may have joined jihadist groups in the Middle East.
One of the schools defended the decision, saying a video circulating online suggested the activities of the school and the college’s values were at odds.

MONTREAL — The Court of Quebec is standing by the decision of one of its judges who refused to hear a woman’s case unless she removed her Islamic headscarf.
Court spokeswoman Annie-Claude Bergeron said Friday that despite widespread public criticism, Judge Eliana Marengo will not bow to public pressure and Tuesday’s court ruling stands.
“There is really no question of letting (public) pressure change the decision,” Bergeron said in an interview.
Marengo told Rania El-Alloul inside a Montreal courtroom she had to remove her hijab before the court would hear her case against the province’s automobile insurance board, which had seized her vehicle.
The judge said her courtroom was a secular space and religious clothing of any kind is inappropriate.
Marengo cited Article 13 of the rules of provincial court, which reads that “any person appearing before the court must be suitably dressed.”
The judge interpreted the rules to include religious headscarves.

Police gave few details, but said the “young man” would face a custody hearing on Saturday.
Two other men were charged shortly after the attacks with helping the gunman, Omar El-Hussein.
El-Hussein was shot dead by police after targeting a free speech debate and a synagogue.
The shootings left a film director and a Jewish man dead and five police injured.

(One has to wonder about that family which killed their child or possibly children with poison gas they brought home from Pakistan. I hope someone is inks ooking into how the kids fit in at school and what kind of politics the parents had. Cause really, no matter how good a union the pest control guys have, it has to be cheaper to call them than a couple of tickets to Pakistan and a box of Zyklon B)
