Mohamed Hassan Hersi Arrested at Toronto Airport on Terrorism-Related Charges

According to Muhammad, there is no greater deed than fighting the unbelievers in the name of Allah:

Sahih al-Bukhari 2785—Narrated Abu Hurairah: A man came to Allah’s Messenger and said, “Guide me to such a deed as equals Jihad (in reward).” He replied, “I do not find such a deed.”

Sahih al-Bukhari 2796—Narrated Anas: The Prophet said, “A single endeavor (of fighting) in Allah’s cause in the afternoon or in the forenoon is better than all the world and whatever is in it.”

Sahih al-Bukhari 2810—Narrated Abu Musa: A man came to the Prophet and asked, “A man fights for war booty; another fights for fame and a third fights for showing off; which of them is in Allah’s Cause?” The Prophet said, “He who fights that Allah’s Word (i.e., Allah’s religion of Islamic Monotheism) be superior, is in Allah’s Cause.”

Not surprisingly, when some Muslims learn that there is a Jihad going on in Somalia, they jump on the first plane to Africa.

TORONTO (Reuters) - A man was arrested for "terrorism-related offenses" at Toronto's international airport just before he was about to board an airplane bound for North Africa, Canadian police said on Wednesday.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) said 25-year-old Canadian citizen Mohamed Hassan Hersi was headed to Somalia to join al Shabaab, which police said is a hard-line Islamist group that has ties to al Qaeda.

"Al Shabaab is a listed terrorist entity," said RCMP Inspector Keith Finn at a press conference. "Any participation in that group would constitute an offense."

Hersi was arrested Tuesday evening at Toronto's Pearson International Airport, moments before he was to board a one-way flight to Cairo via London, the RCMP said. They said Hersi planned to travel to Somalia from Cairo.

Somalia has replaced Iraq as the state most at risk from terrorist attack, according to a ranking by global analysts Maplecroft. (Read more.)

I posted a bit of this on my blog yesturday, But living in Toronto as I do makes you unesay about what is happening in the Islamic community,

The newspapers and the Toronto Star in particular are trying to ignore fact of this is another young Muslim male aged 25 who has been radicalized by some Islamic group here in the city that I live in.

But not the worry this is not the real Islam. He was driven to such measures by his poverty and the Islamaphobs in the community

Allahu Akbar

You misunderstand the meaning of jihad. Jihad does not mean going out to fight anyone. The age of the "jihad of the sword" is dead, the Promised Messiah announced over 100 years ago. The only jihad is left is the "jihad of the pen." Therefore, the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, was saying that there is nothing equal in the sight of Allah to spreading the beauty of Islam to the rest of the world.

Ther is no beauty in Islam. All Islam has give the world is death and destruction. Mohammed was a man of violence and a man of war. If yu disregard the verse of violence in the Qur'an then you disregard Islam.

And please don't chery pick the verse that appeal to your naïveté. Because I know too much and I won't buy a pig in poke. And yes I said pig. Islam is a pig in a poke
