A former University of Manitoba student has been charged with supporting terrorism after he allegedly left Winnipeg for Pakistan with two other suspects to join al-Qaida, according to an arrest warrant unsealed Thursday.
The allegations against Muhanad Al Farekh, a Texas-born U.S. citizen who lived with his grandmother in Winnipeg, date back to 2007 when he disappeared along with fellow Manitoba students Farid Imam and Maiwand Yar.
While Messrs. Imam and Yar, both Canadian citizens, were charged with terrorism offences in 2011 following an RCMP national security investigation called Project Darken, the indictment of Mr. Al Farekh was only unveiled this week.

The situation of Eastern Christianity is a tragedy of immense proportions. It entails human sufferings on a traumatic scale. Even those, like Egyptian President Sisi who would like to help, seem powerless in such dramaticcircumstances. As for the West, the ideological and strategic choices it made in the last century incapacitate it and obscure its understanding.
Natural disasters like tsunamis or earthquakes have spawned magnificent solidarity movements in the West, but the disappearance of a Christian population, of its two thousand old civilization and memory, moves no one. Maybe it is one more sign of Western decadence, of a deliberate policy of deleting Christian identity by choosing globalization and Islamization – a policy based on the rejection of Judeo-Christian values rooted in our actual Western culture of execration of Israel.

(I notice whenever these people are busy killing each other or everyone else, they always shout the same couple of words over and over. I wonder if we don’t need some kind of ‘Allah hu ackbar’ control or at least a long allah hu ackbar registry. I’m sure that would solve the problem. If we can just take away those words)

Asylum seekers and refugees applying to be minicab drivers are exempt from criminal records checks, potentially allowing murderers and rapists to get behind the wheel.
Rules laid down by Transport for London (TfL) mean refugees and those applying for asylum do not have to reveal whether they have a criminal history when trying to become a cab driver.
The legal loophole in an official application document on ‘private hire driver licensing’ says people coming to Britain will not be required to have their criminal convictions checked.
