Muslim Man Turns in Alleged Terrorists to Foil Canadian Train Bombing

A Scarborough Muslim man did his patriotic duty and turned in other Muslims that allegedly planned to bomb a VIA railway between New York and Toronto.

Muhammad Robert Heft, a community leader that runs an out-reach program for at-risk Muslim youth, said  the criticism of Canadian Muslims or their community leaders turning a blind eye to radical or potential Muslim domestic terrorists is warranted, but is changing and that Canadian Muslims love Canada as much as anybody and want to cooperate in keeping their communities safe.
"We have to be on the front lines...we want safety of all Canadians, regardless of their religion," Heft said.

The Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) in conjunction with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police arrested two men, Chiheb Esseghaier in Toronto and Raed Jaser of Montreal, respectively.

The accused appeared in a Toronto court room.  Esseghaier was defiant, saying the Canadian Criminal Code "is not a holy book."

The Toronto Star has more details here and here with video.

The Muslim community in the Greater Toronto Area deserves a ton of credit for foiling this plot.
