Inquiring minds are asking a very important question today after seeing a controversial Muslim cleric caught being smuggled into U.S. over the Mexican border…How many terrorists have gotten through?
The U.S. border guards got the surprise of their careers when they searched a BMW and found a hardline Muslim cleric – banned from France and Canada – curled up in the boot:
Said Jaziri, who called for the death of a Danish cartoonist that drew pictures of the prophet Mohammed, was being smuggled into California when he was arrested, along with his driver Kenneth Robert Lawler.
The 43-year-old was deported from Canada to his homeland Tunisia in 2007 after it emerged he had lied on his refugee application about having served jail time in France.
What else has Mr. Jaziri done to deserve this attention? Well, he has a very ‘colorful’ past:
His fire and brimstone sermons and rabble-rousing antics catapulted him into the public eye during his short tenure as imam at a Montreal mosque.
He branded homosexuality a disease and led protests over cartoonist Kurt Westergaard’s illustrations poked fun at Islam and were published in a Danish newspaper in 2006.
He also caused anger when he campaigned for a bigger mosque to accommodate Montreal’s burgeoning Muslim population.
But after his deportation he complained that he had been physically and mentally tortured during the 13-hour flight repatriating him to Tunisia, a claim Canadian authorities deny.
That last part sounds earily similar to the Iraqi terrorist caught by the three Navy SEALS put on public trial last year by the Obama Justice Department. It seems that the US isn’t the only country that has lies told against it in the treatment of its prisoners.
Mr. Jaziri confessed exactly as to how he traveled to this country. Unfortunately, it is no different than what authorities have repeatedly stated when questioned about other stories of terrorists sneaking into the United States over the last several years:
Jaziri had allegedly paid a Tijuana-based smuggling cartel $5,000 to take him across the border near Tecate, saying he wanted to be taken to a ‘safe place anywhere in the U.S.’
According to the court documents, a Mexican guide led Jaziri and a Mexican immigrant over the border fence near Tecate.
They then trekked across the rugged terrain under cover of darkness to a spot popular for drivers who pick up immigrants for smuggling runs into San Diego.
He allegedly told officials he had flown from Africa to Europe, then to Central America and Chetumal, Mexico, on the Mexico-Belize border, where he took a bus to Tijuana.
Authorities have talked to this issue for years without getting much traction in the media. Maybe this time, people will wake up before a terrorist attack happens here in California.
