Kuwaiti Gangs Threaten Coptic Refugee With Death…..in Canada.

In May 2019, we published a story about Egyptian Coptic Christian Hani Morris who has been given asylum in Canada because of persecution at his workplace in Kuwait. More information has been revealed concerning this case.

In late April, Canadian police surrounded the home of Coptic refugee Hani Morris in Mississauga for several hours after he was threatened with death and the burning of his house. Police scoured the vicinity as well, searching for anyone who might be hiding. These threats came from Kuwaitis who claimed to have ties to the Kuwaiti embassy in Ottawa.

 

 

According to Mr Morris, “The Kuwaiti lawyer Thabet Hamdan Yusuf who works for the Kuwaiti car company from where I was fired is originally an Egyptian with possible Brotherhood ties. He tried to call me here in Canada. I refused to answer, he has insulted me for being Christian and insulted my family. He said he got mobile numbers of my wife and daughter from the Kuwaiti embassy in Ottawa, and he threatened me with death, even  by bombing us and also said the police will not protect us.”

Below are screen shots of these text messages.

 

 

Below is translation of one of the messages:

“Hello, answer you dog fag why you are afraid, you Christian, the underwear is beautiful on the balcony, she went to the church with new t-shirt and Yesterday she feared to go to doctor and you are going to meet the lawyer, and you have to know that in Saturday you were in bank to buy new phone and here is the number, all these information by Kuwaiti embassy and now take number of  ( Hani’s Daughter)”

Despite the knowledge of the Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry about the threats to kill Hani Morris and his family in Canada, they gave him the ‘option’ by the end of July  to give up his case against Kuwait and if he refuses, they threatened him with death. Canadian police are aware of this. Has the Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry colluded with the corrupt car company in Kuwait where Mr Morris worked?  The Ministry of Justice and Interior in Kuwait did not move to solve this case where rich and corrupt people from Kuwait could threaten to kill a whole Christian family in Canada.

In April of this year, Mr Morris contacted MP Omar Alghabra for help in this case. Yesterday, July 15, 2019,  Mr Alghabra sent a text message to Mr Morris’ lawyer, stating:

Mr Morris continues to wait for action on this case. The police have given him ‘tips’ on how to keep safe in the meantime.

This story has been reported in the Canadian Arabic Newspaper Al-Ahram .

Qatar and Terrorism

by: Rami Dabbas

How-Qatar-Has-Been-Supporting-the-Muslim-Brotherhood-for-Years-1

Reasons for Qatar’s support for terrorism were limited to finding a foothold in some Arab and regional countries due to the small and weak state of Qatar and the lack of any political or military weight in the Middle East. Qatar has supported terrorism in IraqSyriaYemenLibyaTunisia and Egypt, and has recorded record numbers in support and funding of extremist groups and terrorist activities in Europe and the west. Indeed, Qatar succeeded in penetrating some countries by spreading terrorism, destabilization of security and the formation of armed terrorist groups like Al Qaeda in Syria and Iraq   They purchase political power and influence, furthering the Qatari dream to give the illusion of being a regional power.

The main supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt was Qatar. The resounding fall of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the insistence of the Egyptian people to get rid of this organization has had a great impact on the psyche of Qatari Regime. This, in turn had a very negative effect on Qatar’s policies towards Egypt and the rest Arab countries which rejected the Muslim Brotherhood’s terrorism and who also worked to eradicate it from that region and the world.  Qatar’s support for terrorism became a political ideology that seeped  into  Qatari military, security, diplomatic and even charitable institutions. This has led to the increase in the spread of terrorism in the region in an unprecedented manner, accompanied by the emergence of many terrorist groups under the support of Qatar via funds and weapons. This has prompted the Arab countries to boycott Qatar in order to stop it’s terrorist activities that violated the security and stability of the region.  Qatar funded  Muslim Brotherhood Activities in Europe and promoted Europe’s Islamization in their alliance with Turkey. The announcement of Qatar’s solidarity with Iran and its coordination with the Revolutionary Guards which is designated as terrorist organization by the United States, the Quds Force and the Iranian intelligence  worked to undermine security and stability against the Arab countries in particular and worldwide in general. The siege of Qatar’s activities in support of terrorism in the Gulf region and worldwide continues. They support the activities of notorious anti West activists Linda Sarsour and Ilhan Omar  for example and in an attempt to exploit poor youth, they recruit them for  terrorist organizations like the Houthis in Yemen, Hezbollah and Iraqi sectarian Terrorist militias and remnants of Isis, in order to destabilize national security, especially in Egyptian and Saudi Arabia in retaliation for isolating Qatar and it’s ally. the Muslim Brotherhood.  Qatar has hampered  progress and development in the Arab anti Muslim Brotherhood countries by targeting security and stability, striking at their relations with the world and trying to target their interests and investments. This has become one of the main reasons for Qatar’s support for terrorism.

Qatar has become an ally to Iran and it’s proxies including Erdogan’s Turkey and the Muslim Brotherhood. Qatar has become a tool of Iranian terrorism and Turkish interventions and a financial tool for Turkey’s proxies in Europe. Because of it’s alliance with Iran and Turkey, it has now become a  dangerous  security risk for Arabic countries and the world in general.
Why is Qatar  important to the United States? Simply because of  Al Udeid Air Base which is one of the most important US bases in the world. It is used by other US allies for military operations like the United kingdom and Australia during the gulf wars and operations in Syria.  Qatar is a tiny, rich state which pays for US lobbyists and US politicians to influence Some of US policies. for example : ”Qatar has spent $16.3 million lobbying the U.S. in 2017, compared to $4.2 million in 2016, in an attempt to lobby about 250 people who can influence President Trump’s foreign policy”.

Qatar. Small, but dangerous.

The Decision of the Century : Trump Seeks to Designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Terrorist Organisation.

by: Rami Dabbas

Awad-Reuters-Trump-Getty-HP
After the fall of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, after it hijacked the Arab Spring and kidnapped the revolution of the Egyptians and Syrians after  massive peaceful protest movements in the Arab Spring countries, Washington is going to correct a mistake which allowed the Muslim Brotherhood to be part of the democratic process in all countries.

Perhaps it’s the “decision of the century” to include the Muslim Brotherhood on the terrorist lists, but first and foremost,  it’s a security decision  and a political  decision secondly. From the beginning of  the 2016 election campaign, US President Donald Trump has not hidden his disgust with those who “harbor hatred and evil” for America,  the free world and human and civil values. He did not hesitate to mention this on more than one occasion before and after taking office. Trump’s position is supported by the vast majority, but the chronic conflict was to deal with this evil. The difficulty is within the title of this organization and their mandate of ‘political Islam” and “moderate” Islamists. Those who have studied Political Islam certainly know that the MB is a militant political organization. Participants are fully aware that Machiavellian conduct is part and parcel of this organization, under the guise of pious and pragmatic opportunism.

The public and the private debates over the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamists in general cannot continue to ignore the historical mistakes of two of America’s most popular presidents: Republican Ronald Reagan and Democrat Barack Hussein Obama. Ronald Reagan hosted the students of Hassan al-Banna and Sayed Qutb in the White House and  history will not forget Barrak Obama’s failed attempt to empower the Muslim Brotherhood.

President Trump continues to create a maelstrom of controversy as he continues to implement his campaign promises and  his decision to designate the Muslim brotherhood as terrorist organization is no exception. This will create a tsunami that I see more important than any decision so far on a security level.

The Brotherhood’s status as a terrorist organization and not  a political party or  association will lead to a security screening process – both at Arab and European levels- and then follows the screening of their extended circle of  influence,  including  legal, political, intellectual, cultural and media influences.

The decision will help to rehabilitate countries that have not hesitated to take this courageous and dangerous step, and at the same time,  “wave a big stick at all the snakes”, which will help in fighting the extremists, terrorists and their sympathizers.

The decision will promote modernization, will stop the incitement against those who don’t agree with the political Islam and any ideology which allied with the Muslim Brotherhood and will help to fight terrorism worldwide to create a new era not only in the United States, but also in Europe and the Arab world.  This decision will promote human rights, democracy, women rights, coexistence and the religious freedom  worldwide.

Islamist in Canada Mourns the Passing of Ousted Egyptian President, Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Morsi

Mazin AbdulAdhim

On June 17, former President of Egypt Mohammed Morsi collapsed during an appearance in a Cairo courtroom and subsequently died of heart failure.

Mr Morsi   67, came from Egypt’s largest Islamist group, the now outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, and was elected president in 2012 in the country’s first free elections following the ouster the year before of longtime autocrat Hosni Mubarak.

Canadian Islamist and Hizb ut Tahrir advocate and activist Mazin Abdul Adhim of London, Ontario mourned Morsi’s  passing in a facebook post June 17.

“Our brother Mohammed Morsi has passed away while he was in the corrupt court of the Fir’aun-wannabe of our time.

We belong to Allah and to Him we shall return

May Allah (swt) have mercy on our brother Mohammed, forgive his sins, make his grave a place of rest after all the hardship he faced, and allow him into Jannah. And may Allah (swt) give him his full due of compensation from those who oppressed him on the Day of Judgement. Ameen.”

The creed of the Muslim Brotherhood is as follows: “Allah is our objective, the prophet is our leader, Quran is our law,  jihad is our way, dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

The Muslim Brotherhood is outlawed in many countries, as is the political Islamist group Hizb ut Tahrir. Both of these groups operate freely in Canada.

President Trump: A Nobel Peace Prize Candidate?

Despite strong criticism by mainstream media against US President Donald Trump, from the moment he was a presidential candidate, he has proved over the past three years that he is a man who deserves recognition for his efforts to bring peace on an international level.

Some of his peace initiate accomplishments: President Trump arranged a diplomatic meeting between the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to discuss “unconditional” nuclear disarmament. After the threats over the past decades by North Korea to strike Japan.

This  also  helped assist President Trump in negotiating the return of Japanese Nationals abducted by North Korea between 1977 and 1982.

President Trump’s call for peace between the State of Israel and the Arab states, known as the Trump peace plan is an initiative that deserves accolades.

Trump called for improved US-Russian relations and cooperation, especially in the fight against extremism and terrorism, unlike the previous Obama administration that chose to escalate hostilities with Russia and the world was on the verge of a possible nuclear war.

Finally, Trump saved the lives of 3 million people living in the opposition-controlled  Syrian province of Idlib after Russia and the Syrian government warned of a possible attack. President Trump has been ruled out for any International award because of the strong criticism and antagonism of the mainstream media of Donald Trump and every International body supported by the forces of globalization.

It is surprising that former US President Barack Hussein Obama won the Nobel award for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation. It is known that President Obama contributed to igniting the wars in the Arab countries in what is known as the Arab Spring, supporting the extremist groups that led to the death and displacement of millions and also supporting the coups in the state of Ukraine. This led to a brutal civil war In this country, the displacement of hundreds of thousands and do not forget the frightening escalation with Russia, which almost lead to a global nuclear war. How can we also forget the nuclear agreement with Iran and permit Iran to possess nuclear weapons? They do not stop escalation and the language of threat with Israel. They occupied three Arab capitals. In contrast, President Trump canceled the nuclear agreement and defeated the Iranian  fascist dictatorship.

In conclusion, US President Donald Trump, despite the criticisms, is working for the American people and his country, he has political and economic peace in his sights. He has won the support of the marginalized peoples in Iran and Venezuela, unlike his predecessor Obama, who worked for the forces of globalization and marginalized his people. Decisions that the American Government made that caused the displacement of thousands of Americans because of it’s failed economic policy and millions of citizens of other countries because of it’s international policy in the era of Obama America have now lost importance, both politically and economically.

US President  Donald J Trump has restored the prestige of the United States of America and made it a great nation again.

Coptic Christian Gets Asylum in Canada, Sues Kuwait for Human Rights Violations

by: Rami Dabbas

Hani Morris with CPC MP Garnett Genuis

 

After Canada had accepted his Asylum for Protection  as a refugee from Kuwait, Hani Morris an Egyptian Coptic Christian filed a lawsuit against Kuwait and more specifically against two major institutions there, Al Mulla Motors and United Ahli bank in Kuwait. The case was accepted by the Canadian Court.

Although the case is not directed against the State of Kuwait specifically, it is exposing corruption in state institutions, how justice is undermined in Kuwait, how to win the violation of the rights and dignity of foreign workers and how corruption and nepotism are exploited in Kuwaiti state institutions. The Ambassador of Kuwait to  Canada is Mr. Abdul Hamid Al-Failakawi .
This is a story of the mistreatment and torture of  an Egyptian family that was deprived of its dignity of being an Egyptian family firstly and a secondly for being a  Christian.

Hani Morris  traveled from Eygpt to work in Kuwait in 1995 and worked there until he married  in 2001. He fell in  love with  the State of Kuwait and its  people and brought his wife to live with him there. His wife gave birth to their first child Hanin in 2002 and his second child in 2007. For Hani and his family,  Kuwait was for them as  second homeland, but as the  chosen homeland and the two children loved the Kuwait they where they were born and grew up.

Mr Morris started a job as an auto valuer at Badr Al Mulla Company  in 2006. His issues  started in January 2009, when one of the company’s clients, Ayad Fahim, an Egyptian citizen, filed a fraud case against the company. Hani Morris was taken to a  Police station in Kuwait City. Before he went to testify in the case, they called Hani’s manager, Naziza Abu Assi who asked Hani  to testify falsely and deny what happened to the client but Hani refused to falsely testify .

Mr Morris lost his job because he refused to falsely testify . He went to the owners of the company  Anwar Mulla and Abdullah Mulla to see if they would support his testimony of  truth, but they refused to help.  Instead, they told him he must obey his manager but when Hani refused to falsely testify,  he lost his job permanently .

After the company fired him from his job, they committed a felony crime against Mr Morris for being  absence from work despite the fact that he was never absent.

Mr Morris filed a complaint of perjury against the Company.  He was surprised that the prosecutor  committed another  crime against him by refusing to look into the case.

Mr Morris then filed a complaint against the prosecutor’s decision to the court, but his complaint application  was also rejected. Not surprisingly, the head of the court is a relative  to the owners of the Al Mulla Motors company.

Mr Morris filed to preserve his labor rights in the company. The company  and told him that he has no rights in the company and they were backed up by the Kuwaiti government .

The complaint in the case of perjury against him  remained  in the courts for three years until the government of Kuwait finally reminded Mr Morris that he was an Egyptian and a Christian. They put him in jail after they forged a crime against him .

“Muhammad Abd al-Wala” an employee in the same company told Mr Morris “we will get rid from all Christian people like you”.  They even seized Mr Morris’ Car and took all his money before they threw him in Jail .

What a travesty of justice committed by the Kuwaiti Ministry of Justice.

Mr Morris was able to obtain asylum and come to Canada on 30 August 2017 and now lives with his family in Canada. After being persecuted in Kuwait, he filed a lawsuit against Badr Al Mulla, Anwar Al Mulla and Ahli United Bank accusing them of causing persecution during his stay in Kuwait from 2009 to 2017.

Mr Morris and his family have received  threats to their lives in Canada after Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram published the case. The threats even came to  the Canadian lawyer and journalist in Al-Ahram who published the case.

The threats come from various telephone numbers, including a Kuwaiti number and other countries. The threats stated that Hani, his family, his lawyer and the journalist that published the story will all be killed  for the publication and for the lawsuit against the corruption of Anwar al-Mulla, Hamad al-Marzouq, Sami Thabit and the various state agencies in Kuwait state.

Hani Morris’s lawyer contacted the Canadian police, who released a statement.

The Canadian Al-Ahram correspondent appealed to the Canadian intelligence service to take the threats seriously and provide protection to Canadian citizens. It is known that Kuwait is a rich country that can implement action on its own  threats.

The Canadian editor-in-chief of Al-Ahram, said that he wouldn’t be surprised that such threats could be related to  al-Qaeda . He added that he would meet with a senior official from the Canadian Foreign Ministry to address the Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry in this regard and that if the Trudeau   government did not act, he would bring the matter to the Canadian Parliament through the  Conservative Party. The fact is that the liberal party refused to help Mr Morris and Al Ahram newspaper, however, the Conservative party decided to help through the parliamentary
former Kuwaiti MP Faisal Al-Duwaisan, who acknowledged the threats which both Hani and Al Ahram newspaper received and for the persecution which happened to Hani from 2009-2017. It’s an absolute proof of the injustice  the Egyptian Coptic family suffered in Kuwait.and the State of Kuwait is responsible for that. Their state institutions need to be cleansed from the corruption, racism and discrimination in the  state institutions , which is against the  Universal Declaration of Human Rights signed by Kuwait since it’s inclusion in the United Nations ..

The case is still in the courts.

Iran and Isis/AlQaeda ties

by: Rami Dabbas

hez

 

As is known, Isis originated with Osama bin laden and his Islamic Jihad, but many overlook the importance of another player in the equation, Iran. Over the past 20 years, Iranian intelligence has provided financial, material, technological and other support to al Qaeda in Iraq.

After the announcement of the organization of the Islamic state, they claimed responsibility for the Paris attacks.  Western intelligence services doubled efforts to detect the cells of the European Islamic jihad and at the same time increased air strikes against Isis in Iraq and Syria. No one expected them to be able to carry out the biggest terrorist attack in Europe since the train bombings in Madrid in 2004.

There was a sign that Europe was facing a terrorist expansion in their countries. The indication came from those who carried off the Paris attacks, Abdelhamid Abu Oud, who boasted about the attack in an interview with the French-language magazine Dabeq. He  easily escaped the Belgian authorities and moved freely between Syria and Europe.

The question raised by Abu Oud’s boast is how he succeeded in moving from a small group of Islamist Mujahideen who fought the Soviets in Afghanistan to the most powerful terrorist organization in the world.

Even though Isis originated with Osama bin laden and his Islamic Jihad, many overlooked the importance of another player in the equation, Iran.  This may seem surprising given Iran’s involvement in a regional war against Isis, but Iranian intelligence, described by the Pentagon as “one of the biggest and most dynamic intelligence agencies in the Middle East,” has provided financial, material, technological and other support to al Qaeda in Iraq over the past 20 years. Imad Mughniyeh, who led an extensive network of Hezbollah, al-Qaeda, Hamas and several small terrorist groups in five continents, was responsible for the affair.

In his book “The Secret War with Iran,” Israeli journalist Ronen Bergman notes that the Syrian regime pledged during the 1982 summer meeting in Damascus to give full support to Iran’s efforts to establish Hezbollah. In exchange for oil, the Syrian regime agreed to the entry of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards into Lebanon and oversee the construction of an Iranian-backed armed group. The first to be recruited into the force was Imad Mughniyeh, whose beginnings are tied to Force 17 of the PLO.

It was not long before Mughniyah began planning several operations, including the bombing of the US embassy in Beirut in April 1983. According to former CIA officer Robert Baer, ​​this was the deadliest attack on a US diplomatic mission since the United States was founded.

The period until the end of the 1980s saw numerous operations and attacks that were planned. When the Iran-Iraq war ended, the Iranian regime saw its end as an opportunity to expand in the Arab region. Imad Mughniyeh worked with the newly established Quds Force, whose mission was to export the Islamic revolution worldwide. Because of Mughniyeh’s success in raising Hezbollah to the ranks of other major players in Lebanon, he was an important element in fulfilling the Quds Force’s task of forming armed groups around the world.

Mughniyeh soon established a vast network of elements associated with the Quds Force in Latin America, Africa, Asia and Europe.

In the meantime, Sudan became the second regime to declare itself Islamic after the coup of Omar Hassan al-Bashir in 1989. Among the jihadi organizations hosted by the al-Bashir regime is the Egyptian “Jihad” organization led by Ayman al-Zawahiri, one of the pillars of al-Qaeda. Zawahri traveled to Tehran in 1991 to seek help in overthrowing the Egyptian regime. Mughniyah went to Sudan to help al-Zawahri in the framework of an agreement he reached with the Iranians. Tehran offered to fund the Egyptian jihad and provide training camps for its operatives in Iran and Lebanon. After Osama bin Laden moved to Sudan, he met Mughniyah,  the leader of al Qaeda, who knew his role in Lebanon and his planned attacks there. Bin Laden hoped his organization would achieve similar results around the world.

Bin Laden could not have carried out attacks in the West without Mughniyah’s help. Because of their confluence, Mughniyah offered bin Laden training of his cadres in Hezbollah camps in the Bekaa, Lebanon between 1993 and 1996. Some of bin Laden’s men were sent to Iran, where they were trained by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and supplied with explosives and weapons for bin Laden’s subsequent operations. The common denominator between bin Laden and the Iranian regime was their hostility to Saudi Arabia.

Mughniyah gave his help to Zawahri and bin Laden in the bombing of the Egyptian embassy in Islamabad in late 1995 that killed 17 people. When the Sudanese regime ousted bin Laden under pressure from the West, he moved with his cadres to Afghanistan with Mughniyah’s help. Over the next two years, al-Qaeda cadres received extensive training in preparation for what bin Laden called “global jihad.” In the last months of 1997, bin Laden told the Iranians that they should reconsider their foreign policy and join his campaign against the United States and its allies.

Mughniyah continued to train al-Qaeda cells during the early years of the 21st century as the official policy adopted by Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on the relationship with al-Qaeda was crystallized in a highly classified document prepared by Iranian intelligence in May 2001. The document stressed the importance of joint strategic objectives Between Al-Qaeda and the Iranian regime in the “battle against global arrogance led by the United States and Israel.” The Middle East magazine The Tower quoted the secret document as saying it was crucial to understanding Mughniyeh’s relationship with 2001 9/11 attacks in United States.

The investigation committee found Mughniyeh and his top aides accompanied eight of the 19 hijackers who carried out the attacks when they left Saudi Arabia for Tehran through Beirut in late 2000. Ramzi bin al-Shaibah, the link between the al Qaeda leadership and the hijackers, received a visa from the Iranian embassy in Berlin in late 2000. He spent the greater part of 2001 in Tehran.

After the attacks, Mughniyeh took over the travel of al-Qaeda leaders from Afghanistan to Iran to protect them from the US invasion on October 7, 2001. In addition to housing Ayman al-Zawahri and al-Qaeda’s military wing Saif al-Adl in Iran, Mughniyah took measures to host many members of the bin Laden family. Mughniyah also used his global network to turn most al Qaeda assets across Africa into gold and diamonds in the months following the September 11 attacks.

By 2002, Mughniyeh was supporting Shiite and Sunni armed groups throughout the Middle East under the guidance of the Iranian regime. He was a mediator between the Iranian regime on the one hand and Hamas and Islamic Jihad in the Palestinian territories on the other.

In the summer of 2006, Mughniyah attended a series of meetings with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Tehran. By July of that year, three Israeli soldiers were kidnapped in the hands of Hamas and Hezbollah on the border with the Gaza Strip and Lebanon. Mugniyah’s relations with Hamas and Islamic Jihad and the timing of the incidents indicate a degree of cooperation. From the tactical point of view, the two incidents dragged the Israeli army into military action on two fronts.

In February 2008, Mughniyeh was killed in a mysterious explosion following a series of meetings with intelligence officials of the Syrian regime in the region of Kafr Sousse in Damascus. The body responsible for his assassination has been unknown for years. In January, the Washington Post published an investigation into his death that was the result of a joint operation between the CIA and Mossad.

In the wake of the killing of Mughniyeh, many of those trained by him became senior leaders of the Hamas and Jihad movements in the Palestinian territories. In Lebanon his disciples became the architects of Hezbollah’s strategy in Syria. In Iraq, the Shiite militias under his supervision have become the tombstone of democracy.

In the meantime, the Sunni militias that Mughniyah helped and embraced have turned into a global terrorist threat called the Islamic State Organization. Mughniyah’s cells in Europe were sending al Qaeda jihadists from Europe to Iraq and Afghanistan during the first decade of the 21st century. The same networks continued to enable foreign fighters to travel to Iraq through Syria. These jihadists returned to Europe to carry out terrorist attacks such as the Paris attacks and then the attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo magazine.

Analysts say finding solutions to this threat should not be confined to the southern suburb of Paris or the poor suburb of Molenbeek in Brussels, but should extend to Hezbollah’s relationship to West African diamond trade, drug trafficking networks in Latin America and many black markets in Southeast Asia.
