Canadian Terrorist Gets Life

Post by shammy on Sun Jan 20, 2008 8:17 am

20th January,2008

TORONTO - Mohammed Jabarah was 18 when he left behind his comfortable suburban home in southern Ontario and made his way to the terrorist training camps on the dusty plains of eastern Afghanistan.

Yesterday in a New York courtroom, Jabarah, now 26, appeared before a U.S. federal judge to be sentenced to life in prison for his brief but remarkable career as a globetrotting Canadian al-Qaeda terrorist.

Also known as Sammy and Abu Hafs al Kuwaiti, Jabarah has pleaded guilty to overseeing a terrorist cell that attempted to bomb the U.S. embassies in Manila and Singapore until the plot was thwarted in 2001.

"I am pleased to see that a self-confessed terrorist has appropriately been dealt with by the full force of the law," Stockwell Day, the Minister of Public Safety, said. "Terrorism is a global phenomenon and Canada, along with its allies, is not immune to this threat."

U.S. prosecutors asked for a life term on the grounds that Jabarah was irredeemably devoted to the cause of Osama bin Laden, and as proof they cited a letter in which he wrote, "And if they release me, then I will kill until I am killed."

A sentencing memorandum claimed that while feigning cooperation with investigators, Jabarah plotted to kill the FBI agents and prosecutors working on his case, stashing away steak knives and nylon rope as well as bomb plans and devotional notes to bin Laden.

The Jabarah case has been closely watched by counterterrorism analysts trying to understand why youths living in Western countries are embracing the ideology of bin Laden, and in some cases committing acts of violence.
