MORE Jihad in Canada...

Remember the two little jihadists running around, who tried to hijack a VIA Rail train out of Toronto, Canada, and blow it up in New York city? Well, they're on trial now and the one in particular, Chiheb Esseghaier, is kicking up a fuss.

He refuses to recognize Canadian Law, wants to be tried under Sharia, tells the female bailiffs to "un-hand him..." Yeah, you know him...

Now, he is waxing poetic about how we are reaping what we sow and deserve the wrath of Islam:

VIA terror suspect Chiheb Esseghaier calls 9-11 attacks a ‘tap on the cheek’

In an interview from prison, one of the VIA Rail terror suspects says the West is “plunging a knife into the body” of the Muslim world, and he was duty-bound to “liberate Muslim lands.”
Chiheb Esseghaier told a Montreal-based newspaper the September 11, 2001, attacks were a “tap on the cheek” compared to the violence committed by the West.
Mr. Essegheir does not deny the charges against him — plotting to cause a train disaster in Ontario’s Niagara region — and stresses that there is “no shortage of reasons” to launch a terrorist attack on North America.
“We have to liberate Muslim lands and support our brothers and sisters in Afghanistan,” he said, claiming that NATO intervention in the country was  “undressing our women.”

In the interview, the Tunisian-born scientist said he only became immersed in religion after arriving at the University of Sherbrooke, when he read from books and websites about Islam and joined a Muslim students’ association and began attending a local mosque.
Beforehand, in his native Tunisia, Mr. Esseghaier says he didn’t even grow his beard because his parents were constantly on him about what friends he was making. Mr. Esseghaier is quoted telling La Presse that, “I wasn’t well,” back in Tunisia.
The comments were made in the visiting room of a Toronto prison. The La Pressereporter noted that as the accused’s anger rose, spittle began to speckle the glass partition separating the two. Mr. Essegheir condemned the U.S. sanctions on Iraq during the 1990s, and denounced Western support for Israel.
Mr. Esseghaier, one of two people accused in the alleged plot, was arrested in April after an eight-month RCMP investigation, and charged with conspiracy to commit murder in association with a terrorist group.

The 31-year-old, who was a doctoral student with a research arm of the Université du Québec at the time of his arrest, gave his oft-repeated assertion that he refused to be judged under the Criminal Code of Canada, deeming it a human-created law that was subordinate to the divine law of the Koran.
For this reason, he has failed to hire a lawyer.
Mr. Esseghaier is also quoted saying that there is no such thing as moderate or radical Islam — that “there is only one Islam” and only one God.
According to the newspaper, he also appeared to offer a vaguely worded hint that he is far from unique: “I am only a drop of water in the sea. A detail,” he is quoted as having repeated multiple times.
Mr. Esseghaier and his fellow accused, Raed Jaser, will be in Superior Court in Toronto on Oct. 21 to set a judicial pretrial.
In a Monday court appearance, Mr. Esseghaier refused a female police officer’s attempt to escort him from the courtroom.
“You are not my wife,” barked Mr. Esseghaier, clad in an orange prison jumpsuit and with a bushy black beard. “I want a man to touch me, not a woman. She is not my wife.”
A male officer, already in the room, intervened to complete the request — sparking complaints in Quebec, which is already in the midst of a broader debate over religious accommodation.
Nevertheless, a Toronto Police spokesman maintained that officers simply opted for the most expedient solution, and did not want to “disrupt or distract” from proceedings.
Also Thursday, La Presse reported that police evidence includes a video of two men milling about the Whirlpool Rapids Bridge in Niagara Falls, Ont., at night.
