After blaming what now appears to be an imaginary white supremacist organization claiming inspiration from President Donald Trump, Montreal police have arrested Hisham Saadi, 47, in connection with Wednesday’s bomb threat hoax at Concordia University, located in the center of Canada’s second-largest city.
A mysterious email, purportedly coming from the “Council of Conservative Citizens of Canada (C4),” was sent to Canadian media outlets and had authorities combing the city for white supremacists and seeking an Islamophobia conspiracy after the leftist Southern Poverty Law Center suggested the group was a Canadian version of the U.S. Council of Conservative Citizens, a racist organization.
Hopefully, law enforcement will save itself from future goose chases by learning a lesson about taking the kooks at SPLC seriously. It appears that C4 does not even exist.
The hoax was necessary because Islamophobia to weep over is in short supply at dhimmified Concordia.
The threats came in the middle of Concordia’s “Muslim Awareness Week” that was sponsored by local Muslim Student’s Association. No Islamophobia has been reported at the university; Muslim students actually have a prayer area located next to the school’s cafeteria.
Concordia spokesperson Chris Mota told The Montreal Gazette that no one has complained about the special status accorded Muslims at the university.
Hoaxer Hisham Saadi, the middle-aged student who closed three buildings in downtown Montreal with his bomb threat, is of Lebanese origin. He is being treated to a psychological assessment. Chances are good that his punishment will consist of having to sit through a couple of counseling sessions, featuring a psychologist holding his hand and apologizing for all the Islamophobic trauma he has theoretically experienced.
