Williams worked with authorities on al-Qaida links
When Canadian law enforcement authorities busted a Toronto terrorist plot with al-Qaida connections, they acted with the benefit of briefings and research developed by American investigator Paul L. Williams, author of the new WND Books release "Dunces of Doomsday: 10 Blunders that Gave Rise to Radical Islam."
Canadian police last Friday arrested 17 suspected Islamic terrorists, mostly in Toronto, who were allegedly planning to unleash a string of attacks in Ontario in retaliation for the country's support of the U.S. in the War on Terror.
Williams has long been investigating the link between terrorist operatives and Canada's McMaster University. Williams' research has unveiled a complex, highly connected group of radical Islamic professors many of whom earned their advanced degrees from McMaster strategically recruiting radical Islamic jihadists and converted sympathizers who enrolled as students under aliases for terrorist training and to steal radioactive material from the university.
In late May, Williams traveled to Canada to investigate his McMaster University findings. By his third day in Ontario, Williams was a guest of the government "because of the leads I was providing to the Ontario police," he says.
"When I spoke to the Ontario police, they were investigating some of the students, and I was investigating the faculty," he said. "You have a virulent nest of al-Qaida operatives who have been there since 1996.

Yes, it is interesting.
It seems he is in the news because of 1 LA Times article and all the rest of news sites are quoting and/or spinning off the 1 LA Times article.
Nabil al Marabh and Hijazi are from Boston; it is worth noting that Boston is where Abdurahman Alamoudi was among those who founded the "Islamic Society of Boston" , at least one of whose trustees is involved in the SAFA group terror charity cases of Northern Virginia. Another boardmember is Qatar-based al Qaradawi, a supported of Hamas and member of Muslim Brotherhood. The ISB received the land for their wahabbi mosque at bargain basement prices from the city of Boston.
Thanks for the ping!
OFF TOPIC... Speaking of Canada, I wonder whatever happened to this guy?
Canadians on an FBI terror list"
CBC News Online | May 27, 2004
ARTICLE SNIPPET: "Possible aliases: Amro Badr Eldin Abou El-Maati, Amro Badr Abouelmaati
Born May 25, 1963, in Kuwait. He was last known to have been in Toronto in November 2001. He had a Canadian passport, issued in Pakistan in 1998.
El-Maati came to Canada as a teenager and went to high school in Toronto. He moved to Montreal where he went to university. After graduation, he went to Afghanistan and Pakistan to fight with the mujahedeen against Soviet forces occupying Afghanistan."
ARTICLE SNIPPET: "El-Maati first attracted attention in November 2001 after several documents bearing his name were found in an al-Qaeda safe house in Kabul. Among them was a letter notifying him that he had been granted Canadian citizenship."
ARTICLE SNIPPET: "Later that month, El-Maatis brother, Ahmad Abou El-Maati, became the first of four Canadians to be jailed in Syria in the span of a year. His arrest came a few months after he was stopped at the Canada-U.S. border while working as a truck driver. Border guards found a map of Ottawa marking government buildings and nuclear research facilities. Ahmad Abou El-Maati returned to Canada earlier this year after spending two years in jail in Syria and Egypt."
Thanks Piasa, let me make that link clickable:
An advisor to the UN involved in terrorism? Doesn't surprise me a bit. Not one single bit.
Al-Marabh said he aided [Millenium plotter] Raed Hijazi's flight from authorities and sent him money. Hijazi was a Boston cab driver convicted in Jordan for plotting to blow up a hotel in Amman in 1999, according to FBI and Justice documents.
This reminded me of something which might be relevant to the various Iraqi connections that come up in this thread:
Jordan followed the US lead in overthrowing Saddam. In early 1996, changes were made to the Jordanian government to facilitate the CIA's plan for a coup in Iraq. Abdel Karim Kabariti was made prime minister and Samih Batikhi, who had cordial relations with the Agency, was made Director General of Jordanian Intelligence. Three sons of al-Shawani, Richter's protégé, were Iraqi officers, and one of them was in the Special Republican Guards. They were to act as liaisons and couriers to those who would actually carry out the coup.
Iraqi intelligence had penetrated the Jordanian intelligence services, as was well-known. So a special cell was created within Jordanian intelligence for the operation. A dozen CIA agents were brought to Jordan, where David Manners headed the CIA station. As a cover for the coup, the INA was also brought to Amman. What, after all, were so many CIA agents doing in Jordan?
The ready answer was the INA. It opened a political office in Jordan in February, holding a press conference to announce the event, even as a select few within the INA were apprised of the Agency's real planning. But as was to be expected, Saddam discovered the plotting. And so did the INC. The INC learned from its sources within Saddam's security services that Saddam knew about the plot. The INC warned the CIA that the plot had been penetrated, providing details to substantiate its claim. But the Agency paid no attention.
At the end of June, Saddam made his move, rounding up the plotters, arresting some 300 people. Iraqi intelligence seized the CIA's equipment and elicited confessions from those it had arrested. Baghdad could have turned the event into a major propaganda coup, but it chose to keep the matter quiet, leaving the Agency to worry when its blunder might be exposed to the world.

SCIENTIST VANISHES WITHOUT TRACE [Chalk River Nuclear Facility, Canada]
The 41-year-old physicist, whose job entailed running experiments for the National Research Council, had just finished some work for a researcher overseas and left his findings on his desk, to be mailed later...,
Sudden disappearance of Deep River scientist mystifies colleagues
Lachlan Cranswick hasn't been seen since Jan. 18, when he left work at the National Research Council's Canadian Neutron Beam Centre in Chalk River, northwest of Ottawa.
Canadian Nuke Scientist Vanishes With 'Absolutely No Trace'
A Canadian nuclear scientist who has not been seen for more than a month has simply vanished, leaving "absolutely no trace at all," police say.
Lachlan Cranswick, 41, a physicist from the Chalk River Laboratories nuclear facility in Ottawa, was last seen on Jan. 18, when he left his job and boarded a bus to Deep River, his hometown along the Ottawa River with a population of roughly 4,300.
I hadn’t been, but thank you for bringing it to my attention!
I wonder if Paul Williams is aware that Lachlan Cranswick is missing?
This disappearance really creeps me out.
I wonder if Paul Williams knows about this missing Canadian nuclear physicist???
