Canada Emulates America’s Worst: Apologizes to Muslims For Arrests

By Debbie Schlussel

Looks like the competition is tough between the United States and Canada in the contest to see which country can most pander to Muslims.    I’d say the countries are in a contest to see which can farther bend over backward for Islamic criminals, terrorists, and thugs, but in this case, it’s which can farther bend over forward.


As you’ll recall, a few weeks ago, FBI agents raided a Dearbornistan warehouse they controlled and arrested several Muslims they had set up in a business they believed was selling stolen merchandise and cars.  (As I noted, the FBI picked and chose these Black Muslims and framed them from beginning to end, when they could have easily done the same with the Hezbollah- & HAMAS-funding Arab Muslims who are far more of a threat. See here also.)  Two of the men in the group–Yassir Ali Khan and Mohammad Al-Sahli, the only Arab Muslims in the gang–fled to Canada, where they were finally arrested.

But here’s where the Windsor police have learned from the Detroit-area Michigan FBI and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials:  they APOLOGIZED to the Muslims. Yes, that’s right.  They APOLOGIZED to them.  I repeat, they APOLOGIZED to wanted Muslim criminal fugitives for doing their job and arresting them.

In an unprecedented move, Windsor police chief Gary Smith has publicly apologized to the Muslim community for the “embarrassment” caused by his tactical officers — a move that doesn’t sit well with the head of the city’s cop union.

“In my belief, this isn’t a cultural issue,” said Ed Parent, president of the Windsor Police Association and a former tactical officer. “These officers had a warrant to arrest someone. They went in, and they arrested this person.… That’s it.”

Smith held a news conference at police headquarters Thursday to address concerns about “the cultural sensitivity of Windsor police officers” stemming from arrests on Oct. 31.

Acting on a request by the RCMP and FBI, tactical officers arrested Windsor residents Mohammad Al-Sahli, 33, and Yassir Ali Khan, 30, in connection with a radical Islamic group based in Detroit.

The Emergency Services Unit made the arrests in a south Windsor residential neighbourhood, in full gear with guns drawn.

According to Patrick Ducharme, the lawyer for the two accused, male officers “pat-searched” a Muslim woman — Khan’s wife — who wasn’t a part of the arrest warrant.

Ducharme said such contact can be considered a “great personal violation,” particularly among Muslim women.

They touched her? So sad, too bad. Maybe her husband shouldn’t have committed crimes. Or maybhe he should have stayed in Lebanon or wherever he came from, so she wouldn’t suffer these “indignities.”

Um, what if they didn’t pat her down, and she was carrying a gun and shot them dead?

Smith . . . added later: “We brought them out publicly … and the only right thing to do is to apologize publicly.”

Smith wrote in his release: “As chief, I recognize the training received by service members was insufficient to address the issues of (the day of the arrest). The actions taken did cause embarrassment and did offend … religious beliefs. I sincerely apologize to the families and the Islamic community.”

Are you frickin’ kidding me? The training was just fine. The embarrassment should be that these people’s religious beliefs justify committing crimes like selling stolen merchandise and then fleeing to another country.

But Parent, who was an ESU member for 10 years, said he’s not sure what the officers could have done differently.

“Usually, when you make an apology, that means something was wrong. In my opinion, nothing went wrong here,” Parent said.

“I believe the officers were doing everything they’re entitled to do under the law. I believe they did it professionally. I don’t see an issue here.” . . .

Al-Sahli and Khan were released on bail Nov. 6, against the wishes of U.S. federal authorities. . . . Many members of the local Muslim community were upset about how the arrests were handled.

Smith said the last time Windsor police officers (including ESU) underwent cultural sensitivity training was in 2007.

Smith noted the training did not include “in-depth” education on religious communities. He said the force will now be working with a leader of the Muslim community, Dr. Murad Aktas, to receive “more thorough” training.

The specifics of the new sensitivity training haven’t been finalized, but Smith said police will consult with Aktas as the need arises.

Thanks, Canada. You’ve learned well from America.

Like I said, this is the standard practice for Michigan FBI Special Supermodel in Charge Andrew Arena and Michigan/Ohio ICE Special Agent in Charge Brian Moskowitz a/k/a Abu Moskowitz.  They not only tip off Islamic groups (which openly support Hezbollah, HAMAS, etc.) ahead of time of their raids and arrests, but then they apologize to them and hold group hug sessions.  As I’ve noted, it’s so bad that Moskowitz enlisted “former” Islamic terrorist, marriage and immigration fraud perpetrator, and FBI award revokee Imad Hamad to choose Arabic-speaking and Muslim agents for  him.  And Arena has enlisted Hamad’s teen daughter anchor babies to attend the FBI Citizens Academy . . . TWICE (on your tax dime).  Reading these terrorist’s teen daughters’ puppy love crush mash notes for the fat, Islamopandering FBI chief in the local paper was kinda gross.

After the election of Barack Hussein Obama as President of the United States, nothing surprises me. This needs to serve as a wake up call to all law abiding, patriotic citizens of North America. JIHAD. nuff said

BW: As you and I both know, all of this started under Bush, who ramped it up. This is not an Obama development. DS

Yes Bush pandered to Islamists even after 9/11. Obama simply continued the policy. We’re apologizing to those who hate us and would kill us if the opportunity presented itself.

Let me know when the Muslims start apologizing for their acts against humanity….Oh sorry, thats right they’re the only religious, and or ethnic group protected against crimes commited towards humanity. What was I thinking?

perception of truth on November 13, 2009 at 12:08 pm

Oh and this type of pandering started with George SR. Each president there after has just been more emboldened to the cause.

On the other hand, Canada put a stumbling block to rampant multi-culturalism with a guide for new immigrants, “Discover Canada: The rights and Responsibilities of Citizenship”

It says, for example, “…Canada’s openness and generosity do not extend to barbaric cultural practices that tolerate spousal abuse, ‘honour killings,’…or other gender-based violence.” It’s a beginning, at least.

the windsor chief seems to be a person afraid to do his sworn duty, sometimes law enforcement requires one to do things that are difficult, backing your officers who did nothing wrong is not difficult. douche-bag

The decision to bring the detainees to trial in civilian court is a prime example of how our country has gone from bad under Bush to much worse under Obama.

Republican Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona said that bringing Mohammed to New York is an “unnecessary risk” that could also lead to the disclosure of classified information. He said the trial of Omar Abdel Rahman — the man known as the “blind sheik” — in a plot against New York City landmarks caused “valuable information” to be revealed to al-Qaida.

Democratic Sen. Jim Webb of Virginia, who serves on the Senate Armed Services Committee, supports the use of military tribunals in terrorism cases as I do. Bringing Mohammed and the other detainees to New York for trial is “disruptive, costly, and potentially counterproductive,” Webb said Friday.

Everyday theres another such story of totally unnecessary pandering to a particular group. This wouldn’t happen for any other race of people. Whats next apologising to illeagle aliens for checking their ID at the border. How are we consevatives going to turn the tide in this country when leaders from all levels of government are betraying their own oath to protect and serve. Good Bye America it was fun while it lasted.

They should have stripped searched the be-yotch — on the street and in front of television cameras — instead.

Sic Semper Jihadis!

BIG IRISH on November 13, 2009 at 9:51 pm

The next time someone says islam is a “peaceful religion” i am going to hurl…..sure, “not all muslims are terrorists, BUT almost ALL terrorists are muslim”.

BIG IRISH on November 13, 2009 at 9:57 pm

When will Americans start killing Muslims? Media cry-storm aside, this development would be GOOD for America.

Greg Halvorson on November 16, 2009 at 2:14 pm

When will Americans start killing Muslims? Media cry-storm aside, this development would send a message that they’re lifestyle if incompatible with freedom.

Not HERE! on November 16, 2009 at 2:23 pm

Hey hey watch ur mouth. when ull start killing muslims and muslims would kill u. would it not be the END OF WORLD. spread peace to delay THE END. No doubt u r powerfull and so should not be irresponsible. A person(christian) killed 35 people in an amreican state , it doesnot mean that entire of his family should be killed.
