Canada: Biggest Supplier of Jihadists to Somalia

ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 19, 2006) - The Somali Justice Advocacy Center expresses concern about the increase of the Somali Canadians joining the Islamic extremists in Somalia. The Center has been following closely about this development, and thus now afraid that the releases of this information by some Canadian officials will change the trend of people from Canada to Somalia.

Mr. Aden Hashi Ayrom, Somali Afghan trained leader of (Al-Shabab), the youth, in Somali, on regular basis, sends avowal to the all major cities in Canada to have it read to the Somali young men.

The Somali Justice Advocacy Center worries this new wave of young Somali business owners from Canada, coupled with the lack of effective outreach of Canadian government to combat against terrorism will lead to the empowerment of radical group in Somalia.

The Center urges Canadian government to be on guard.

"This is outrageous that Somali-Canadians are assisting radicals in Somalia, and therefore urge the Canadian government to do something." Mr. Omar Jamal, Executive Director of the Center said.

Canada is on the top of the list of countries, besides Pakistan and Middle Eastern countries, from which young men are going back their homeland to join the extremists.
