    Canadian Plotted To Kill Israelis In America

    CANADIAN PLOTTED TO KILL ISRAELIS IN AMERICA

    By URI DAN


    December 9, 2003 -- JERUSALEM - A Canadian born in Gaza was trained by Hamas to assassinate Israeli VIPs in the United States, Israeli investigators said yesterday.

    Jamal Akel confessed he was also told to recruit accomplices at Canadian mosques to help him attack Jewish communities in North America, the Shin Bet secret service said.

    "New York is a place where it's easy to find Jews," Akel said he was told by the Hamas commander who recruited him, Ahmed Wahaba.

    Akel, 23, was arrested Nov. 1 by Israeli authorities during a three-week visit to see his family in the Nusseirat refugee camp in the Gaza Strip, where he was born.

    Akel, who went to college in Windsor, Ontario, and now runs a convenience store there, said he met Wahaba soon after arriving in Gaza.

    Wahaba asked if he wanted to help the cause of Hamas, which has organized dozens of homicide bombing attacks.

    According to the confession, Akel agreed. Wahaba then taught him how to fire an M-16 rifle and told him to buy his own when he returned to Canada.


    Akel allegedly was told by Wahaba to collect information about senior Israeli government officials and diplomats who were planning to visit the United States - and to kill one of them either by gunfire or explosives.

    Wahaba told Akel to enlist confederates in Canadian mosques to help him in attacks on Jewish communities.

    Akel's family in Gaza said he had only come back to his homeland to find a wife and visit with his six sisters, whom he hadn't seen in years.

    Akel's lawyer, Jamil al-Qhateb, acknowledged that Hamas had tried to recruit Akel to carry out attacks in North America but insisted Akel refused.

    The article demonstrates quite clearly that Muslims are dangerous no matter what their socioeconomic status and/or citizenship.

    Unless I have missed something, this is the first I have heard of this having any American connection?

    In our papers here, all that had been said was that he had been indoctrinated by Hamas, but I never heard any specifics as to what his plans had been.

    Perhaps another Canadian, better read on this story can comment, but I seem to recall that there was a brief problem with Canadian authorities and his being detained by Israel, which I seem to gather was quickly abandoned, I suppose once they had more details?

    < dont quote me on this, I was very busy and somehow missed the full story so perhaps someone else here knows the full story? >




    TIA

    Yes, today, more about this story did come out, and mention of the American connection.

    Interestingly, at least to me, it was reported that he had just earned his trucking license, which no doubt, would have sent him down to the US several times a week.

    One of the Israelis < didn't catch the name? did blast Canadian officials for being naive about terrorism, suggesting we are far to lenient with our borders and who we allow in.

    Etc
