Well - that title should catch everyone's attention. Today's newspaper has an article that really set me off. CalgarySun - Canadian on welfare linked to prominent terrorists: Documents

Ok - some background. Some guy has spent 20 years on pogey, had 6 visits to Europe while on welfare to meet with some well-known terrorist-guys (some who are jailed now, others dead).

Ahh .. screw it, I'll let you read it and decide for yourself.

CalgarySun said:
MONTREAL - A Montreal man has collected Quebec government welfare cheques for almost 20 years, even as he criss-crossed Europe to meet six other men who've since been either killed, convicted or linked to global terrorism, lawyers for the RCMP and CSIS allege.

In recently filed court documents, government lawyers claim that while Mohamed Omary has been jobless and on the dole in Montreal since he arrived from Morocco.

Yet he still somehow found cash to repeatedly visit Europe between 1993 and 1999.

While overseas and in Montreal in the 1990s, Omary hob-nobbed with six men who've since become a who's who of Islamic terrorists, the federal security agencies claim.

Omary, a father of four, denies any involvement in terrorism and has never been charged, though his brother-in-law has been kicked out of Canada on national security grounds.

Omary's Montreal home was searched by police in 1999 at the request of French law enforcement and his telephone was also tapped for months in 2000, court records show.

Thierry Audin, a spokesman for Quebec's Ministère de l'Emploi et de la Solidarité sociale, declined comment on Omary's case or status as a welfare recipient.

"This is personal information. We cannot make any comment whatsoever about this subject," Audin told QMI Agency.

Omary visited France, Germany, Holland, Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia and made several trips to Morocco and Turkey staying abroad a month at a time, including stays in at least one four star hotel, the RCMP and CSIS lawyers say in the court documents.

Omary also joined a shooting club in the Montreal suburb of Longueuil and learned to handle guns. In Bosnia, Omary even learned to fire an AK 47, while purportedly there as a humanitarian worker, the government claims.

Omary's lawyer, Johanne Doyon, did not return telephone messages seeking comment for this story. A second lawyer, Alain Arsenault, referred calls to Doyon.

Last year, Omary sued the Canadian government for $1 million in Quebec Superior Court.

He claims that Canadian security officials tipped Moroccan authorities about a trip he was planning home to Morocco in January 2002 - just months after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Omary, a citizen of Canada and Morocco, was arrested and detained by Moroccan authorities at the Casablanca airport. His Canadian passport was confiscated.

Omary also says he was prevented from returning to Montreal for two years as CSIS and Moroccan intelligence agents pressured him to become a confidential informant when he returned to Montreal. CSIS agents he identified as "Claude and Christian" visited him in Morocco, scaring him and contributing to heart troubles, he added.

He wants damages from the Justice Department, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service for what he claimed were lost wages as well as loss of liberty, stress, and family separation.

Omary's lawsuit described him as "an IT worker by profession and a self-employed worker in Canada for several years."

In their reply, federal lawyers said neither RCMP nor CSIS officers knew Omary had left Canada for Morocco in January 2002, so they couldn't have tipped off the Moroccan authorities.

They also said he failed to ask consular officials for a replacement Canadian passport for months, a move that could have allowed him to leave Morocco much sooner.

Omary's claim for damages and lost wages is bogus, the federal lawyers said, noting that Omary lost little if anything financially, because he's been on welfare since coming to Canada.

"Since the 1990s and to this day, Mr. Omary is a recipient of social assistance benefits and he has experienced no loss of revenue, damages, or any moral prejudice because of his trips to Morocco," the government states in court documents.

In the late 1990s, news reports linked Omary to an Islamic terrorist sleeper cell in Montreal.

When a French magistrate came to Montreal to question him, Omary refused to answer all questions about his acquaintances and clearly missed a chance to clear up any misunderstandings, the federal attorneys suggested.

Canada allows people to migrate that they know will be receiving welfare? Where do I sign up? I've always wanted to do nothing and get paid for it (JK)! I can't believe he's suing the Canadian government.

I don't think that it is a case of "knowing" that they would end up being unemployed bums ... just this particular individual collected money for "doing nothing" for 20 years and turns out to be "friends" with some people who aren't the most desirable members of North American society.

Mind you, most of the professional welfare-bums just keep milking the system with all kinds of reasons to stay on it. Sometimes I wonder if I am the dumb-one going to work, gettin' screamed at by the boss and made to feel like crap on a daily basis.

I could just stay at home eatin' cheezies and watchin' porn. :sssh:

I know a lot of arab immigrants and very few appreciate being here. It is like they are raping the land. They eat a big beautiful meal and when they are finished they spit in the plate. The ones who do love to be here assimilate and are very patriotic. The ones I know who do not assimilate always talk about their home land. And many of them go back and forth and buy condos and houses back there for when they have enough money to live like a king there.
To me that is like raping this land.
What is interesting to me is it was not always like that. Growing up there were Italian, Arab and Irish immigrants in my family along with their circle of friends and I only saw and heard grateful language from them. Their dream come true,
so to speak. I have seen a change in attitude over the past 30 years.

I think it takes a special type of jerk to milk a system devised to help those who need it most. Although cheezies and porn seem inviting. I'm glad to be a man of my means. Anything else would be beneath me.

I would say if he was able to travel for Humanatarian purposes he did not require welfare,
"" Omary visited France, Germany, Holland, Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia and made several trips to Morocco and Turkey staying abroad a month at a time, including stays in at least one four star hotel, the RCMP and CSIS lawyers say in the court documents.""

Glad too see my TAX dollars at work 4star hotel worldwide trips why the hell Am I working may have to go down to the local welfare office and see about changing my way of life...........

Its the new Muslim Extremist Canadian way use our genorosity, money hospital care etc to kill us.
Thats how they are going to do it burden the system so us hard working folks will be working for them on WELFARE they build a large enough population vote themselves into power they stay on welfare we keep working.... Only issue becomes that they require more to stay on Welfare and we get taxed heavier......
