Professors, doctors, businessmen and even a former senior member of the U.S. military have put their names — and reputations — on the line to support the bail application of a man the Canadian government and other detractors have branded a dangerous jihadi terrorist.
Foremost among those backing Omar Khadr are his long-time lawyer Dennis Edney and his wife Patricia, who have offered to take him into their home if he wins bail...
What reputation would that be exactly? The CBC article in question pointedly doesn't mention many of the names of these people who put their "reputations on the line." Possibly because the list wouldn't hold up to much scrutiny.
Edney had previously proposed a "reintegration plan" for convicted terrorist Omar Khard which would be led by such luminaries as Zafar Bangash and the Canadian Arab Federation.
Bangash is a racist supporter of the wortld's leading state-sponsor of terrorism and terror groups like Hezbollah, whose flags are proudly waved at the Khomeinist al Quds Day rallies he organizes.
Oh, and Bangash also claims that Israel and America are behind terror groups such as Boko Haram and ISIS, in order to undermine the "Resistance Front" he admires, comprised of Iran, Hezbollah, Syria, and Hamas.
The Canadian Arab Federation, another component of Edney's previous "reintegration plan," had its federal funding revoked for its support for antisemitism and terrorism. That designation was upheld by a Federal Court.
