Maclean’s, a Canadian weekly news magazine, paid homage to a self-professed murdering Al-Qaeda terrorist by putting him on the cover of their latest issue.
Omar Khadr stands between two women. Rinelle Harper is an aboriginal woman who became the symbol for racist violence against aboriginal women — though her alleged attacker was himself Aboriginal. Amanda Lindhout is a waitress who decided to become a war reporter in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Somalia where she was kidnapped by Muslim terrorists and tortured and raped repeatedly.
Two innocent women who were brutalized by violence are standing in front of Khadr, who is nicely dressed and sporting a huge grin that makes him seem completely normal.
Ironically, the rape and torture victim of a Muslim terrorist is sitting next to an admitted a Muslim terrorist.
Omar Khadr is a confessed, convicted Al Qaeda terrorist. He plead guilty to five charges of war crimes. In 2002, 15-year-old Khadr threw a grenade at Sgt. Christopher Speer, an American medic, in Afghanistan in an attempt to “to go out in a blaze of glory.” That grenade killed Speer, leaving his wife without a husband and his two children without a father.
Khadr was subsequently captured, imprisoned in Guantanamo and charged with war crimes. In 2010, President Barack Obama’s administration decided to offer him a plea agreement that reduced his sentence to eight years and put him in the custody of the Canadians.
Then in May of 2015, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that Khadr had been illegally sentenced as a minor. A few months later, he was released.
Omar Khadr has never renounced Al Qaeda or said that he regrets what he did.
According to Maclean’s: “Omar Khadr was imprisoned in Guantanamo, captured in 2002 by American forces in Afghanistan and charged with war crimes.” He is described on the cover of the magazine as “a victim of searing personal tragedy.”
Ezra Levant, author of The Enemy Within: Terror, Lies and the Whitewashing of Omar Khadr, recently told Fox News:
“Omar Khadr is still an Al Qaeda asset. I doubt he will commit any more murders, because he is much more valuable to them as a symbol — a symbol of Al Qaeda’s moral righteousness; a symbol that you can be a terrorist, be caught and convicted but still be back on the street in a few years. He is being ‘normalized.’”
