Maher Arar. Looks pretty happy for a guy who claims his "life was changed" by a year of horrific torture at the hands of evil Syrian Islamists.
Sounds like Maher Arar is becoming (or always was) a soft jihadist.
Note the headline referring to his "struggle". "Struggle" is a definition of "jihad", after all.
Gotta love the spin in the article. Saying the guy's "working for human rights because Canada's 'scorning' them". Sheesh!
Omar Khadr of Al Qaeda. Arar is supporting him.
Again a Big Media article says he was tortured, rather than correctly saying he claims to have been, while it was never proven.
Weird how the same Big Media uses phrases like "allegedly tortured" and "claims to have been tortured" when referring to William Sampson, who was obviously tortured in illegal captivity by the evil Saudi regime. WTF?! Why the difference? Is the Big Media really that ignorant, clueless, brainwashed? Do they not ever think for themselves? Do they just write and say whatever they were told to?
William Sampson, wrongfully accused, imprisoned, sentenced to death and tortured by Saudi Arabia.
Has Maher Arar even mentioned Mr. Sampson? Why only talk about Omar Khadr?

Come to think of it, why hasn't Maher Arar tried to reach out to William Sampson... why hasn't he talked about Mr. Sampson's case, tried to help him get compensation, too? Hmm? Is it because Mr. Sampson isn't a Muslim, isn't a fellow terrorist or suspected terrorist? One must ask about this. If Arar really cares about human rights and the way Canada treats people overseas, then he'd be standing with Mr. Sampson, and not just the avowed Al-Qaedan illegal combatant Omar Khadr. But he isn't.
Arar also directly accuses the Canadian government of "subcontracting torture". WTF?! Does he have proof to offer us? Let's see some proof. No? Then he's just a soft jihadist spewing incendiary propaganda against the Free World.
Funny how he never condemns Syria, the country he claims tortured him. Funny, that. Why blame Canada? Did Canada torture him? No. He said it was Syria. But he's not mad at Syria. WTF?! What an asshole! Oh, wait... maybe Syria never tortured him. Maybe he made it all up for the money, Big Media coverage and the potential soft-jihad propaganda value.
Funny how healthy and fit Arar looked right after a year of his alleged "torture". Why is it that William Sampson was an entirely different person physically following his apparent torture in captivity, but Arar was as fit as a fiddle, looking none the worse for wear? Something's fishy. Why must we automatically believe Arar's claims but doubt Mr. Sampson's?
I'd also note that the article misspelled the Prime Minister's first name as "Steven" instead of the proper "Stephen". This suggests a mind lacking attention to detail. Which is common in Big Media minions.
