ADOPT A TERRORIST
A Canadian female libertarian wrote a lot of letters to the Canadian government, complaining about the treatment of captive insurgents (terrorists) being held in Afghanistan National Correctional System facilities. She demanded a response to her letter correspondence.
She received back the following reply:
National Defence Headquarters
M Gen George R. Pearkes Bldg.,15 NT
101 Colonel By Drive, Ottawa, ON K1A 0K2 Canada
Dear Concerned Citizen,
Thank you for your recent letter expressing your profound concern of treatment of the Taliban and Al Qaeda terrorists captured by Canadian Forces who were subsequently transferred to the Afghanistan Government and are currently being held by Afghan officials in Afghanistan National Correctional System facilities.
Our administration takes these matters seriously and your opinions were heard loud and clear here in Ottawa . You will be pleased to learn, thanks to the concerns of citizens like yourself, we are creating a new department here at the Department of National Defence, to be called ‘Libertarians Accept Responsibility for Killers’ program, or L.A.R.K. for short.
In accordance with the guidelines of this new program, we have decided to divert one terrorist and place him in your personal care. Your personal detainee has been selected and is scheduled for transportation under heavily armed guard to your residence in Toronto next Monday.
Ali Mohammed Ahmed bin Mahmud (you can just call him Ahmed) is to be cared for pursuant to the standards you personally demanded in your letter of complaint!
It will likely be necessary for you to hire some assistant caretakers. We will conduct weekly inspections to ensure that your standards of care for Ahmed are commensurate with those you so strongly recommended in your letter. Although Ahmed is a sociopath and extremely violent, we hope that your sensitivity to what you described as his ‘attitudinal problem’ will help him overcome these character flaws.
Perhaps you are correct in describing these problems as mere cultural differences. We understand that you plan to offer counselling and home schooling. Your adopted terrorist is extremely proficient in hand-to-hand combat and can extinguish human life with such simple items as a pencil or nail clippers. We advise that you do not ask him to demonstrate these skills at your next yoga group. Please advise any Jewish friends, neighbours or relatives about your house guest,as he might get agitated or even violent, but we are sure you can reason with him. He is also expert at making a wide variety of explosive devices from common household products, so you may wish to keep those items locked up,unless (in your opinion) this might offend him.
Ahmed will not wish to interact with you or your daughters (except sexually) since he views females as a subhuman form of property thereby having no rights,including refusal of his sexual demands. This is a particularly sensitive subject for him and he has been known to show violent tendencies around women who fail to comply with the new dress code that he will “recommend” as more appropriate attire.
I’m sure you will come to enjoy the anonymity offered by the burka over time. Just remember that it is all part of ‘respecting his culture and religious beliefs’ as described in your letter.
Thanks again for your concern. We truly appreciate it when folks like you keep us informed of the proper way to do our job and care for our fellow man. You take good care of Ahmed and remember we’ll be watching.
Good luck and God bless you,
Minister of National Defence
When will politicians learn hat making deals with the terrorists never pays? Bharat (India) did same thing after Kandhar hijacking and one of the released terrorists was the mastermind behind 911. Israel has signed its own death warrant by releasing 477 convicted terrorists.
Doing Business with Terrorists

That Gilad Schalit has been released after five years of captivity by Hamas brings joy to anyone who watches the Israeli soldier’s reunion with his parents and the ecstatic welcome he received by his countrymen. It also reminds one of the Israel Defense Forces’ noble purpose in doing all it can to stand by its men.
But joy is tempered by the bitter realities of statecraft. First, the trade of one Israeli soldier for 1,027 Arabs, 477 of them convicted terrorists, offers huge incentives for the capture of more Israeli soldiers. Second, the trade releases hundreds of terrorists to their freedom, where they can resume their evil ways, targeting not just Israelis but civilized peoples everywhere.
This exchange points to the sentimentalization of strategy. Leaders who place the concerns of one individual over the interests of the country betray their mandate and poison its future. Israeli politicians have been making these lopsided swaps since 1982; over ten thousand Palestinians serving prison sentences for terrorist or other hostile actions. Each time they do, they forsake principle and common sense for short-term benefits. Shame on them.

I am truly disappointed in the financial reward. It is a cruel joke. It would have been better not to offer a reward. I can see that amount for an informant but here is a lady who got hold of live bombs and took timely action to save many lives at the risk of her marriage and facing possible ostracizing from her community. I urge Narendrabhai Modi to rectify this mistake and announce suitable reward.
This is Narendra Modi’s Gujarat where a Muslim woman comes forward to expose her own husband’s nefarious, anti-national activity and they (anti-Modi brigade) say that Muslims live in fear in Gujarat!
MoS Home,CP,DGP visit brave Muslim lady Reshma, present her award announced by Modi(photos)
Ahmedabad, 18 July, 2011
Shehzad nabbed by police on Sunday
The government of Gujarat has taken a decision to honor a brave Muslim lady Reshma of Ahmedabad who yesterday informed the police about her husband’s activity of making crude bombs and his plan to do bomb blasts in the city. Reshma’s husband Shehzad was later arrested by police with 8 crude bombs and two desi tamanchas.
Reshma living near Chandola lake of Ahmedabad’s Muslim dominated Danilimda area had helped the police earlier also. Few years back, with Reshma’s help, police had nabbed Bangladeshi intruders living illegally in this area.
After her husband’s arrest, Reshma had said that she wanted to save lives of many people by informing the police about her husband’s activities.
Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today announced on Tweeter :”Gujarat Home minister will felicitate brave Reshma with prize of Rs 25,000 for exposing her husband in national interest.”
Reshma was today visited at her residence by Gujarat Minister of state for Home Shri Praful Patel, Ahmedabad Police Commissioner Shri Sudhir Sinha, Gujarat Police Chief DGP Chitranjan Singh. Shri Patel, Sinha and Singh appreciated and congratulated her for her brave act of public good.Minister Praful Patel presented Reshma a cheque of Rs. 25,000 as a bravery award.
Mr. Patel profusely praised Ms. Reshmaben’s courage despite being a woman, rising above her concern for a close relationship, its repercussion and likely reaction in her close society. He described the act as a great personal sacrifice in the larger interest of the national security.
Chief Minister Narendra Modi described the Ms. Reshmaben’s sacrifice as an exemplary act for the security of six crore Gujaratis, displaying a rare example of communal amity.
Mr. Singh in a word of praise for Ms Reshmaben for setting a rare example of paying more importance to the motherland and nation’s interest rather that her own family. He said that such information or tips lead to solving several criminal cases.
Mr. Sinha offered Ms. Reshmaben a job in the Traffic Brigade and assured to provide her all possible security if required.
Talking to newspersons present on the occasion, Ms. Reshmaben, who studied up to Standard XII in Mumbai, said that she would always side with the law of the land and fearlessly expose criminal activities, even if they were her close relatives, and asked all womenfolk to do the same.
Meanwhile Shehzad was sent to ten days remand by the court today in Ahmedabad.
In another development, the Gujarat Police has taken a decision to hand over the Shehzad case to Anti Terrorist Squad. This decision was taken in view of Shehzad’s confession that he wanted to throw bombs indiscriminately during Ahmedabad’s annual Rath Yatra. Seven ATM cards and sim cards are recovered from Shehzad’s possession.
