Of the remaining Canadian citizens of Clan Khadr, Abdullah was caught while trying to acquire surface-to-air missiles to resell to a high-level member of Al-Qaeda. Canada has refused American requests to extradite him. But like Romeo, Abdullah Khadr has gone into documentaries and has appeared in “Son of Al-Qaeda.”
Zaynab Khadr married a terrorist at a wedding attended by Osama bin Laden and has been accused of aiding Al-Qaeda. In an interview she has said, “I’d love to die a martyr. It’s a desire that I believe that any Muslim would have or should have.”
Abdurahman Khadr, once a temporary ward of Osama bin Laden, was captured and also sent to Gitmo. He is also back in Canada and the scriptwriter for “Hotel Rwanda,” which featured Romeo Dallaire, is supposed to be writing the movie based on his life. The producers would like Johnny Depp to play him.
There’s only one conclusion to be drawn from all this. Romeo Dallaire is looking for a new movie deal. Rwanda, which he has spun into a string of films starring his mustache, is old news. Afghanistan is still new news. African genocide is so ’90s, but sympathetic Islamic terrorists are so ’00s.
The Khadrs have been in more movies than Romeo Dallaire and he would like to work on a joint deal. Maybe “The Love Story of Romeo and Omar,” a drama about a general and a 25-year-old child soldier battling to come home and blow up parts of Canada. Even if Johnny Depp doesn’t come calling, there’s bound to be at least one CBC documentary in it for him.
Romeo Dallaire, freelance moral conscience of the world, walking proof that you can watch genocide happen and then turn that into a lucrative career of telling people how sad the genocide made you, is joining forces with Abdul, Zaynab and Abdurahman to bring the last Khadr to Canada. Unlike Zaynab, he probably won’t go on a hunger strike while sitting in a burqa on Parliament Hill. Instead he will wax his mustache and deliver furious denunciations of the United States and Canada for refusing to give him Omar right this minute.
In 2008, Romeo Dallaire compared the United States and Canada to terrorists. Conservative Member of Parliament Jason Kenney replied: “Is it your testimony that al-Qaeda strapping up a 14-year-old girl with Down syndrome and sending her into a pet market to be remotely detonated is the moral equivalent to Canada’s not making extraordinary political efforts for a transfer of Omar Khadr to this country?”
“Absolutely,” Romeo Dallaire replied.
So speaks the man whose own bio on his own site shamelessly praises his “defiant dedication to humanity” and talks up his “courage and leadership.” A “devoted humanitarian,” our poor Romeo sits on the anti-terrorism committee, but cannot tell the difference between Al-Qaeda and Canada. This is the mark of the moral blindness which is the true devil whose bony hand Romeo shook in Rwanda and which he still clasps as he agitates for Omar Khadr.
Christopher Speer, along with nearly a million Rwandans, is dead. While the Khadr clan romps through Canada, defended by Romeo’s valiant mustache, Christopher’s children were left with no father. They are the true “child-soldiers,” forced to face the world alone in a war that the Khadr clan wanted.
We know how many Rwandans died because Romeo stood below the genocide balcony with firepower, but no will to use it. The question now is how many Canadians will die because of Romeo Dallaire?
