Canada Couldn’t Deport Alleged Terrorist Because He’s ‘Palestinian’

Canadian Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Jason Kenney blamed the 'old policies' for the grant of a pardon and permanent residency to the accused terrorist.

Mohammed Jaser says he chose to immigrate to Canada because he had two brothers there, one a Canadian citizen, the other a refugee. Other siblings still live in the UAE. (But no suggestions about why this was done via forged French travel documents).

The family’s application to become Canadians was rejected at first because the authorities “had concerns about the family’s credibility. However, as stateless Palestinians, they could not be removed from Canada since there was nowhere to send them.”

The Canadian authorities are now going to have to figure out how to fit the family saga of harassment (by Egypt, Germany, UAE at least) with a major terrorist plot. Also: how to explain to Canadian citizens that criminal offenders who claim Palestinianism and statelessness cannot be expelled even when the law requires it because there is nowhere to send them. It’s a conundrum they might care to take up with the Palestinian Authority who first declared themselves to be a state twenty-five years ago on November 15, 1988.

They have both been, and are, frequently interviewed for radio, television and the print media, including CNN, BBC, New York Times, Washington Post, Al-Jazeera, and others. Their blog This Ongoing War deals with the under-appreciated price of living in a society afflicted by terrorism which, they contend, means the entire world. Frimet is a native of Queens, NY while her husband was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia. They brought their family to settle in Jerusalem in 1988. They co-founded the Malki Foundation in 2001 and are deeply involved in its work as volunteers. They can be reached at thisoingoingwar@gmail.com .
