Canadian officials say that they have thwarted a major terrorism plot involving derailing a passenger train headed from Canada to the United States, and that two people have been arrested.
Canadian mounties say that the two were working with aide from “al-Qaeda in Iran,” a group whose very existence is unclear at best, since al-Qaeda has long been openly hostile to Iran and has historically limited its involvement inside Iran to backing secessionist groups like Jundallah.
Officials also say that the plot, such as it was, was still in the very early planning stages and that there was no imminent threat, sparking immediate concerns about the timing of the arrests.
Today was the first day of debates for S-7, a harsh new anti-terrorism law that was seen having an uphill battle in parliament. Conservatives had been pushing for it to be fast-tracked in the wake of the Boston bombing, and the timing of today’s arrests suggests an effort to sell more MPs on the “need” for broad new police powers.
The two arrested men have been identified as Chiheb Esseghaier, a Tunisia-born PhD candidate at Université du Québec, and Raed Jaser, a Palestinian living in Toronto. Little is known about Jaser, but Esseghaier’s Linkedin Profile is reported to have a picture of the flag of al-Qaeda in Iraq’s umbrella group, suggesting the “Iran” links may simply have been a mistake.

Hmmm…2 for the price of one…they up the GWOT image for Canadian forces, reminding the locals that ther are still bad guys out there wanting to do harm to their way of life…AND…they point the finger at Iran, those bad guys who want to attack Israel…oh, wait, that's the other way around. Well, you know how it is…so many enemies.
Looks like Dudley Do-Wrong had a few FBI advisors working with him to heroically foil the Ayatollah of Rock and Rollah's nefarious plot to destroy the Great White North.
Yeah, I doubt they made a mistake in trying to link this with Iran. Canada has been marching in lockstep with Israel for some time now, this is definitely part of the Iran demonization crusade.
This present government love for the zionist war crimes and crimes against the Palestinians is putting its citizens at risk should be voted out of office before more harm to its citizens.
Why the hell would Iran attack Canada?
But the funniest part is Al-Qaeda in Iran, LOL, do people who dream this stuff acid check their facts? Iran and Al-Qaeda are mortal enemies, just look at who is fighting who in Syria.
The present canadian government foreign policy is in lockstep with the yanks and the result of this what is occuring they are putting its citizens at risk by A::slicking the zionist and theUS.
Al-Qaeda in Iran,can someone wake me from this nightmare.? whatever happen to that used car salesman who also as link to Iran and was planing to set off bombs here in the US.Our Ted Bundy government is working overtime along with Israel to start a war with Iran.
Just to be clear: Canada’s has been ruled by a Bush Jr. clone since 2006 , its’ called Steve Harper.
His background is oil money, a degree in Hayekian economics and some vague Protestant evangelism. His politics are law & order pandering combined with a wildly pro-Israel foreign policy. He supported the invasion of Iraq.
The RCMP helped bring him to power by pressing charges against the finance minister of the rival Liberal party -during- the election and then dropped the chargers after Harper won. He repaid this support by increasing their man-power and building them a new training centre.
The major Canadian police union also publicly supported Harper. The RCMP interference during an election and the open support of police unions were both firsts in Canadian history.
The last two commanding generals of the Canadian military have been trained in Fort Hood and been selected as top commander due to their connections within the US military.
This is what the “War of Terror” looks like from up north in 2013: a Bush Jr. clone and pathetic aping of American-Zionist militarism.
All I know is that when you get an announcement that reads ' Officials also say that the plot, such as it was, was still in the very early planning stages and that there was no imminent threat" it usually means that the FBI or RCMP came up with the plot, recruited the players and after months got them to agree to something stupid. Not that real plots aren't stopped but there are a lot less of them then sting operations.
Interesting how politicians sell their sole to the devil. Once Harper the Zionist was in power with his government, especially that fat head the foreign minister who keeps edging for a fight with any muslim, they have invited the dogs of deception for false flags. This will bode very badly for Canadians as they will be the targets. Remember the Israelis posing as Canadians assassinated somebody in Dubai and the government did nothing? Now all Canadians will be suspects and rightfully so.
Canadians, you are perceived to be smarter than Americans, what the hell happened?
Canada's inferiority complex strikes again. Canada wants its own Patriot Act and AUMF. It wants "Toronto Strong". To achieve these, it is willing to trot out absurd Bushian fantasies like “al-Qaeda in Iran".
There are connections between Sunni theocratic fundamentalism and the Shi-i variety that go back a long way. Like this story, for instance:
Daoud Salahudin, an African American Sunni Muslim, in 1980 assassinated Tabatabai in Washington DC on behalf of the Islamic Republic. Daoud was the protege of none other than Said Ramadan, the Muslim Brotherhood's most visible international operative and CIA agent. He was probably theCIA's most important Arab asset, with the only possible exception being Phalangist leader Bashir Gemayel. Ramadan instructed Daoud to do whatever the Iranians asked of him.
