Canadian VIA Terror Plot: Terror Suspect Chiheb Esseghaier Appears In Court
States Terror Charges Don't Matter, 'Criminal Code' Not Based On Holy Book..

And, he has the prayer bump to prove he is really into the Quran.


It also appears he is really into wanting to kill innocents by detonating a bomb on the trestle linking New York and Ontario at Niagara Falls. In defense of al-Qaeda's brand of Islam, of course:

TORONTO - In a shocking and rambling statement, terror suspect Chiheb Esseghaier told a Toronto court Wednesday morning that he doesn’t recognize the Criminal Code under which he faces five serious charges, including conspiracy to commit murder for the benefit of a terrorist group.

The devout Muslim suggested he is only governed by the “holy book.”

“First of all my comment is the following,” the 30-year-old Montreal PhD student said in his first Toronto appearance. “Because all of those conclusions was taken out based on Criminal Code and all of us we know that this Criminal Code is not holy book, it’s just written by set of creations and the creations they’re not perfect because only the Creator is perfect so if we are basing our judgment ... we cannot rely on the conclusions taken out from these judgments.”[More...]

The 2nd perp, Raed Jaser, is in "a state of disbelief", per his lawyer.

The other suspect, Raed Jaser, 35, appeared briefly in a Toronto courtroom, dressed in a dark dress shirt and wearing a black skullcap.

A publication ban was imposed on proceedings.

Jaser’s lawyer, John Norris, told reporters later that his client was “in a state of shock and disbelief” and planned to defend himself “vigorously” against the charges. Jaser has spent 20 years in Canada and has deep roots in the country, Norris said.

Also, in the above article, it was noted:
The RCMP-led team expects to make more arrests in the alleged terrorist plot. Meanwhile, the CBC is reporting that police and intelligence agencies on both sides of the border were monitoring a “broader network” of suspects beyond the pair arrested on Monday.
