The latest episode of Faked anti-Muslim Hate Crimes, aided and abetted by the media.
Another fake Islamophobic hate crime bites the dust.
The bomb threat at Concordia University’s downtown campus, which forced the evacuation of three buildings Wednesday, is now being investigated by Montreal police’s Major Crimes Unit.
The threatening letter, purportedly from a group that calls itself Council of Conservative Citizens of Canada (C4), complained about Muslim students at Concordia.
Wednesday morning, several media outlets, including Global News, received an e-mail threatening to “detonate once per day, a small artisanal amateur explosive devices.”
The targets were on two floors of the Hall building at 1455 de Maisonneuve Blvd. Ouest and one floor of the EV building, located at 1515 Sainte-Catherine St., “where Muslims hang out.”
The e-mail goes on to say that the bombs are “not meant to kill anybody. The only aim is to injure some Muslim students” and that “things have changed” now that Donald Trump is in office in the U.S.
And the perpetrator is once again…a Muslim. via Man charged in bomb hoax was Concordia PhD student, says man who sublet to him:
The man charged in connection with Wednesday’s bomb threats at Concordia University, Hisham Saadi, was a PhD student in economics there, according to the man who sublet Saadi his apartment.
Speaking to CBC’s French-language network, Radio-Canada, under the condition of anonymity, the man said he had met Saadi at Concordia to pick up a rent cheque.
He said Saadi is of Lebanese origin.
Police arrested Saadi, 47, early Thursday morning at his Côte-des-Neiges apartment as the main suspect of sending the bomb threats.
In his charge sheet, he is accused of committing acts to incite fears that “terrorist activities have been or will be carried out,” transmitting death threats or the threats of injury to individuals at Concordia University, and interfering with the ability of Concordia students and personnel to carry out their daily affairs.
Saadi was arrested at an apartment on Darlington Ave. near Goyer St. in an operation that saw a SWAT team, canine unit and uniformed officers remove about 30 residents from the building.
MONTREAL—The man charged with calling in an alleged bomb threat against Muslim students at Concordia University will wait until Monday for a bail hearing.
Hisham Saadi, 47, is charged with mischief, uttering threats and inciting fear of a terrorist-related attack.
Saadi appeared briefly in a Montreal courtroom Friday and didn’t react as he learned his hearing was postponed and he would have to spend the weekend in jail.
