Former terrorist, Walid Shoebat, has been refused entry into Canada by Immigration authorities, today. Shoebat is scheduled to speak at the Simon Weisenthal Center at 7:30 p.m. in Ottawa tonight and in Montreal tomorrow. He is often invited to speak about his life as a terrorist and about his transformation from extremist to peace-maker and activist against terrorism.   See:


"The refusal by the Canadian authorities to let Walid Shoebat in the country shows the absurd policies of immigration officials," says Keith Davies, director of the Walid Shoebat Foundation. "Mr. Shoebat  is trying to educate people about the dangers of terrorism, but is refused entry because he has admitted to his involvement in terror over 20 years ago. Why should the Canadian authorities want to silence his important message?"


On September 10, 2006, Shoebat entered Canada without incident when he was invited to speak on Canadian National TV. He also been to Canada three times in 2004 and his story has been featured by much of  the media in Canada.
