ISIS is an avowed enemy of Canada. Returning ISIS fighters should be jailed and charged with treason.
A recent CBC story on “Abu Huzaifa,” from Toronto who left Canada to join ISIS, discussed his experience serving as an ISIS enforcer in Syria.
Apparently, after emptying his bank account, travelling to Turkey and making his way to Syria, and spending five months with ISIS, “he realized it wasn’t what he signed up for and he decided to flee Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and head home.”
Now, he’s back in Canada.
Apparently, he has been questioned by both the RCMP and CSIS, but has not been charged. CSIS says it knows of about 60 “extremist travellers,” who have returned to Canada.
Enforcing Sharia Law
Abu Huzaifa says he helped enforce Sharia Law, stopping people from drinking or violating dress codes, and making sure “men and women didn’t mix.”
While Huzaifa was with ISIS, he says he witnessed his fellow fighters commit horrible crimes, including “public lashings, beheadings and crucifixions.”
Why isn’t Huzaifa in prison?
Many Canadians are asking why Huzaifa isn’t in prison, and is instead talking to the media.
ISIS is an avowed enemy of Canada who have threatened to kill Canadian citizens. Therefore, joining ISIS should clearly be considered treason. It’s the equivalent of a Canadian having left the country to join the army of Nazi Germany during WW2. They wouldn’t just be accepted back into the country. They would have been jailed as a traitor.
Canada must take strong action to protect Canadians from returning ISIS fighters, and make certain those who fight for the evil ISIS army are held accountable. Charges of treason must applied to those who join an organization fighting against Canada. “Canadians” who fight for ISIS should be in jail, not talking to the press.
