I remember this story from Minnesota...
Jihad draws young men across globe back to Somalia
Recruitment efforts that lured Somali men from the Twin Cities are also at work in Europe and Australia, investigators say.
They slipped away quietly, not telling family or friends where they were going or why.
Days later, the young Somali men turned up in their homeland to bear arms with Al-Shabaab, a terrorist group linked to Al-Qaida. Counterterrorism officials worried that they might return to carry out an attack on U.S. soil.
A year ago, that was the disturbing scenario unfolding in Minneapolis. It spurred the largest federal anti-terrorism investigation since Sept. 11, and investigators spent months connecting the dots to determine who recruited about 20 local Somalis to jihad.
Now it's clear that the Twin Cities disappearances were far from an isolated case.
From Sweden to Australia, officials are beginning to grapple with the reality that young Somalis in their countries have been doing the same thing.
Dozens of Somali men from Great Britain reportedly received terrorist training in Somalia during the past year, with some returning recently to London. Twenty more left Stockholm in the past six months to join the Islamist insurgency in Somalia. A handful have been killed.
Last spring, four Australian citizens were arrested and charged with plotting to attack an army barracks after at least some were trained in Somalia. In the past few weeks, six young Somali men slipped away from their homes in Toronto, flagging officials worldwide that efforts to feed jihad in Somalia with Somalis living abroad have not stopped, and were not limited to the United States

The West has to have a zero tolerance policy towards these idiots who want to make trouble.
Canada's terrorism laws are pretty strong. We will close this door and any that get through will NOT be coming back.
This is what changed Canada's thinking.

Kalam states these are simply misguided Muslims who are simply defending themselves as victims of the West. There is no fifth column. They just leave to fight because they love the West.
Umm so if the West is so bad how about they just move the fuck out and go back to Pakistan? no one is forcing them to live in Canada.

Fair would be to charge any Canadian going abroad to fight for foreign powers
That's good to hear, all this politically correct bullshit just clouds the real issues.
Hell, they came back for free medical after being wounded fighting the coalition in Afghanistan AND still spouting their hate.
Canada is clearly done with this kind of thing and our laws are being changed to deal with this.
Good, there needs to be zero tolerance towards these kind of folks.
