Sophie Harkat will discuss the legal lynching of her husband Mohamed, who is under house arrest and threatened with deportation to the torture chambers of the Algeria under Canada’s “Security Certificate” program. (“Security Certificate” means the Canadian government does not have to produce any evidence to prove its “terrorism” smear.)
Mohamed Harkat’s real crime: He joined a peaceful, democratic political party called the Front Islamique du Salut (FIS) when he was a student at Algeria’s University of Oran in the late 1980s. In 1989, the FIS was poised to sweep into power with more than 80% of the vote, when the Algerian military junta (with the cooperation of the US and France) abruptly canceled elections, arrested the leaders and members of FIS, locked them in concentration camps and set about torturing and murdering them. Mohamed Harkat survived because he fled the country.
The Algerian military regime then launched the bloodiest false-flag terror campaign in history. Dressing up its own death squads as “Islamists,” the regime murdered more than 100,000 people over a ten year period. Algerian military death squads, wearing phony “Islamist” garb, would cordon off villages and neighborhoods known to support actual (peaceful, democratic) Islamists, and slaughter every man, woman and child in that village or neighborhood. Algerian and Western media would then blame “Islamic terrorists” for the massacres. The combination of smear tactics, torture, and mass murder worked, and the vicious US-backed Algerian junta retained power, despite the heroic efforts of FIS supporters to restore democracy.
The Canadian government claims that Harkat became tangentially involved with Algerian and internationalist Islamists working to restore democracy in Algeria by overthrowing the brutal military regime behind the false-flag death squads. That’s a little bit like claiming someone is a “terrorist” because they once did charitable work with Mother Theresa. But the government refuses to make public any evidence to back its “charge” that Harkat is a heroic fighter for democracy! Like everything else about the phony “war on terror,” the Canadian witch-hunt against Mohamed Harkat an outrage, a farce, a travesty of justice, a pile of BS to rival Mt. Everest.
