…picking off a Soldier of Allah at 3,450 meters – which is over two miles. That’s phenomenal and unprecedented, and the JTF2 guy who did it deserves all the honours the Canadian state can confer on him. On this 150th birthday I only hope we can continue to produce more men like that.
But what’s the point if, for every ISIS barbarian you pick off at 3,450 meters, back on the home front you’re importing hundreds and thousands of loons who support him and share his world view, day in, day out. There are more “British Muslims” fighting for al-Baghdadi than for the Queen. Thousands more: they feel their allegiance to the Caliphate in a way that they do not for Britain. Likewise with Rehab Dughmosh: she feels her allegiance to ISIS, and not for Canada. Never did. Pace the socks symbol Trudeau, making citizenship conditional on “good behaviour” – ie, non-treason – does not “devalue citizenship for everyone”. Tolerating ISIS fighters holding UK and Canadian and Belgian citizenship is what “devalues citizenship for everyone”. Rehab Dughmosh’s Canadian citizenship devalues that JTF2 sniper’s Canadian citizenship.
