Don't let this guy into Canada....

This is not the type of immigrant we need...
He arrived at the Canadian border last month with plans to move to Canada permanently. But when guards at the Douglas crossing near Vancouver searched Khaled Nawaya's car, they found nearly a million dollars in Canadian mint gold coins and paper currency.

Mr. Nawaya's vehicle was full of security red flags. Border guards found a ring bearing the logo of Hezbollah, a Lebanon-based Islamist group viewed as a terrorist organization by Canada. They also uncovered 9/11 videos and a scarf depicting two former U.S. and Israeli leaders as monkeys. Mr. Nawaya, a Saudi Arabian-born Syrian citizen, is also a pilot and certified flight instructor with a degree in aeronautics. He was arrested on the spot on the night of Oct. 6.

Whether he is a threat to Canadian security or - as his lawyer suggests - a hapless would-be immigrant who believed he could bring nearly a million dollars across a border, hasn't been determined.

In the meantime, Mr. Nawaya, 35, who planned to become a flight instructor in British Columbia, is in a Vancouver-area detention centre.

His arrest touched off a flurry of activity. Canadian officials called embassies in Syria, London, and Dubai to check out the significance of the Hezbollah ring. According to transcripts from Mr. Nawaya's two detention hearings, border officials believe the money is from terrorist sources, and Mounties say they're investigating a "probable national-security nexus."

While I realize the legal "profession" is a lowlife type of job, I'd like to know just how a lawyer (ie. his lawyer) can claim he was just a misguided immigrant. Beggars belief. It just goes to show how these foreigners think this country is a joke. Disgusting - and frightening.

What a dofus. You're think he'd clean his car of all the Hezbollah crap and the scarf & all the other video's & such.

What boggles my mind is how does anyone become a flight instructor these days to easily. Don't they do background checks or something to prevent potentially dangerous people from flying? I hope they prove the money comes from the terrorist groups so he can rot in jail.

Take care, Lorne
