Canada: Muslim deemed “high risk to public safety” to be released, must “reach out” to an imam

Canada: Muslim deemed “high risk to public safety” to be released, must “reach out” to an imam

The Canadian authorities assume that the imam will “deradicalize” Kevin Omar Mohamed. What is their basis for this assumption? They are sure that Islam is a religion of peace that young Kevin Omar has simply misunderstood, and that the imam will put him back on the straight path. They do not dare to consider the possibility that Kevin Omar Mohamed may have been “radicalized” by reading the violent exhortations of the Qur’an (“kill them wherever you find them,” 2:191, 4:89, cf. 9:5) and the Sunnah, in which Muhammad is depicted as saying, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally.” (Bukhari 8:387) Their blood and property will be sacred to us – that is, left undisturbed, instead of their being killed and their property seized.

It is an iron dogma all over the West that Islam is not what its texts teach and how it has behaved for 14 centuries. How and when it changed, no one bothers to explain.

“Ontario man dubbed ‘high risk to public safety’ after trying to join terror group set for release,” by Shanifa Nasser, CBC News, February 22, 2019:
An Ontario man who travelled to Syria to support an al-Qaeda-affiliated terror group is set to be released from prison — despite being considered of “high risk to public safety,” according to a decision by the Parole Board of Canada.
Kevin Omar Mohamed, now 26, pleaded guilty in June 2017 to participating in the activity of a terror group. He was later sentenced to four and a half years behind bars, receiving two and a half years credit for time served. He had no prior criminal history.
His sentence is set to expire in October 2019 and it’s unclear when exactly he will be released.
According to the parole board decision obtained by CBC News, Mohamed travelled to Turkey in 2014 where he met members of Jabhat al-Nusra, a known terrorist group, and was smuggled in the trunk of a car to Syria….
Back in Canada, police said he used two separate Twitter accounts to post “comments supportive of terrorist activities, promote violence, and suggested that a person could create timed bombs to be put on planes or boats.”
Mohamed also urged people to “burn cars of ‘non-believers'” and “commented on the beauty of attacking the West,” police said….
In March 2016, Mohamed was arrested after being found sleeping in empty rooms on the University of Waterloo campus. He was found with what police said was a large hunting knife, work gloves, a large quantity of money and handwritten notes taken down from al-Qaeda publications on how to plan and carry out an attack.
CBC News previously reported the Mohamed was linked by counter-terrorism researchers to the online persona “Abu Jayyid.”…
As part of his release, Mohamed is subject to a range of conditions including: not associating with individuals engaged in terror activities or who are criminally active, living with family, not engaging in unsupervised internet use and undergoing religious counseling.
But since Mohamed has not participated in “any interventions geared toward deradicalization, there is no evidence to indicate that” he is committed to changing his “extremist ideological beliefs,” the Parole Board said….
While the board has mandated Mohamed to “reach out to an imam in the community,” it did not offer specifics on the terms of the religious counseling imposed…
