Thanks, fanfan.

We Canadians are obviously not immune to idiocy.

No matter what people call them, good fundraisers isn’t going to be on the list. Their normal Democrat donors must be hurting too.

I’d rather the Taliban didn’t kill her, even if it does mean our Canadian gummint has to pay a ransom. However, if that be the case, as soon as she arrives back in Canada she ought to be cuffed and perp-walked from the aeroplane to a waiting Black Maria, and from thence to one of HM Prisons, and made to stand trial for High Treason: giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

She can’t have it both ways.

The only reason that the Canadian gummint ought to pay for her release is that she is a Canadian Traitor and it is thus worth that amount to put her on trial and make an example of her to encourage the others.

Her website ought to be seized as Crown Assets and converted into counter-propaganda.

Gasp.

No ransom should be paid, IMO.

The irony is Beverly - now Khadija Adbul Qahaar - publisher of a pro-Islamic website 'Jihad Unspun', was in Pakistan to understand the concept of 'Jihad', when the Taliban kidnapped her in North Wazirstan.

Who's to say she's not "in on" the fund-raising effort?

She went to learn more about Islam, "jeehawd", and is pro taliban? Off with her head! Its the ultimate on the job training!

And may the rest of such deluded Canadians learn a lesson from it.

> No ransom should be paid, IMO.

I agree with the general sentiment. However, it would be difficult to bring her back to Canada and try her for High Treason sans head.

Doing that would no doubt result in a mistrial or acquittal: she would have a prima facie defense of being non compos mentis, a fact that even the dimmest of Canadian jurors would have no problem believing, given the absence of her mentis.

Unfortunately the price for delivering her to face Justice Canadian Style is probably to pay the Taliban their "finder's fee" -- which they persist in calling a Ransom, but which we prefer to call a Bounty. Because Ransom is paid for Hostages, and Bounty is paid for Varmints, Pirates and Traitors.

Anyrate, Canada could always pay in counterfeit bills or Euros (they're about the same thing anyway) and the Taliban would probably never notice.

> Who's to say she's not "in on" the fund-raising effort? It is probable that she is -- which means that if Canada doesn't really want to try her for High Treason, there is always the option of playing "Chicken" and see if she manages to keep her head. Bags Not!

> “I am not a “terrorist”, a fanatic or mentally off-balance.....I am a level-headed, capable woman, a humanitarian and a contributing member of society. In my former life, I was Bev Giesbrecht”

That sounds like a confession of premeditated guilt. Any competent Crown Prosecutor ought to be able to convert that into a conviction for High Treason.

Under such compelling evidence of guilt and certainty of conviction, the Talian’s Bounty seems quite reasonable. She’s ugly enough to be memorable, and her execution should make a superb propaganda film...

...ooops, I forgot, we don’t hang Traitors in Canada anymore. Let me re-think that Bounty idea and I’ll get back to you later. Worst-case scenario, I’m sure the Taliban won’t mind taking care of her for us: after all, they’ve already offered to.

As Beverly desperately calls out for help, she says, "The timeline is very short and my life is going to end. So I need someone to help me. My country or someone else have to make a move now, as my life is going to be over very shortly."

Tough nookies, Khadija, you now know about jihad, eh? The next thing for you is to go to Allllah's heaven where you will either become a houri to be perpetually deflowered by a jihadi (and then "re-flowered" again) or you'll go to heck. Actually, wait, they're both the same thing.

“Video: Taliban Threaten to Behead Pro-Taliban Canadian “Journalist””

SNIPPET: “We’ve been following the story of Beverly Giesbrecht (aka, Khadija Abdul Qahar) fairly closely for years now. As the owner and operator of the “Jihad Unspun” website, she wrote countless stories about how US and Canadian troops were the “real terrorists” and how the Taliban were simply anti-imperialist freedom fighters — the “resistance” as she liked to call them.

I actually knew Beverly was on her way to Pakistan as she and I crossed paths at some Islamist forums. She was at the forums looking for video and trying to hook up with “resistance fighters” who could help her and Phil Rees — who she claimed to be working with -— on their “documentary” about “Islamic resistance”. A “documentary” she claimed would show the “resistance” point of view.

So, if Beverly really was kidnapped by the Taliban and if she is about to be beheaded, how come nothing happened to Phil Rees?”

“Ransom offer falls short as clock ticks toward deadline
A ransom offered by Pakistan for release of a Canadian woman has been rejected”

REHMAT MEHSUD AND MARK HUME
Globe and Mail Update
March 30, 2009 at 6:29 PM EDT

SNIPPET: “PESHAWAR, PAKISTAN and VANCOUVER — A ransom offered by the Pakistan government for the release of a Canadian woman kidnapped by the Taliban more than four months ago has been rejected, sources close to the negotiations say.

Failure of officials to gain the release of Beverly Giesbrecht, a West Vancouver woman who also calls herself Khadija Abdul Qahaar, has raised fears that she might not survive captivity much longer. She has said she would be decapitated if a settlement wasn’t made by Tuesday.”

“Spooks and Spinning”
Posted in ubiwar by Tim Stevens on 12 May 2009

SNIPPET: “This rumour/conspiracy has been knocking around for ages, it’s true, and was most publicly voiced by Rita Katz, director of the SITE Institute, in 2003. From the ‘other side’, Azzam Publications had in 2002 – the year JUS was launched – stated its misgivings about the site’s relationship with Western intelligence agencies.

I simply don’t know the truth about this. What I do know is that Jarret is right about the currency of this theory. Earlier this year I solicited the opinion of several European intelligence operatives about this and received a mixed response: a few just smiled knowingly but one openly stated that JUS was indeed a CIA front. I don’t know who to believe, to be frank.”

The Online Trail: New insight into terror suspect comes from Web footprint
NATIONAL POST.com ^ | Tuesday, Aug. 31, 2010 | Kathryn Blaze Carlson and Stewart Bell, National Post
Posted on September 6, 2010 2:25:49 PM PDT by Cindy

SNIPPET: “Framegrab Framegrab from an online video that was circulated in on online Muslim forum by Ottawa terror suspect Misbahuddin Ahmed. The video lashes out at the US-led invasion of Iraq, and is titled “Operation Iraqi Freedom: Where Are The Muslim Soldiers?” and supposedly made by Jihad Unspun”

SNIPPET: “The video was circulated by a man who used the online handle “Qutz,” but his email address indicates he is Misbahuddin Ahmed, 26, one of the Ottawa terror suspects arrested last week.”

SNIPPET: “Mr. Ahmed was allegedly chosen by his alleged co-conspirators, Hiva Mohammad Alizadeh and Khurram Syed Sher, to lead an ill-defined plot to conduct terrorist attacks in Canada. Bail hearings for the three men scheduled for this afternoon are expected to be subject to a publication ban, but the online writings of Qutz may provide some insight into the Pakistan-born terror suspect.”

SNIPPET: “The video Qutz linked to was on the website Jihad Unspun, which provided a sympathetic portrayal of Islamist terrorists but is no longer active.”
