NDP’s Jagmeet Singh declines to comment on killing Islamic State leader

On October 28, 2019 I sent a media inquiry to Jagmeet Singh the leader of the New Democratic Party (NDP) asking why he hasn’t published any statement on the killing of the leader of the Islamic State. Singh didn’t respond to the media inquiry.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

On October 26, 2019 Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State (ISIS, Daesh, Caliphate) was killed by American special forces in the area of Idlib in northern Syria.

ISIS under the leadership of Baghdadi established an Islamic state and proceeded to commit crimes against humanity as defined by the UN. These crimes include but are not limited to: genocide, ethnic cleansing, targeted systematic rape, torture and beheading.

Hundreds of Canadians left to support and participate with ISIS in establishing the Caliphate – Islamic State and taking part in war crimes. Terrorist attacks inspired by the Islamic State targeted Canadian nationals in Canada and abroad. Eighty of these ISIS fighters have returned to live in Canada.

Canada is a member in the international coalition tasked with defeating ISIS, including through the Global Coalition, Operation IMPACT and the NATO training mission in Iraq.

Both Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Andrew Scheer, leader of the Conservative Party, issued statements supporting the elimination of the leader of the Islamic State. Jagmeet Singh, the leader of the New Democratic Party (NDP) has not issued any statement.

QUESTIONS

Why have you not made any public statement regarding the killing of the leader of the Islamic State that orchestrated with the help of Canadian nationals genocide, ethnic cleansing, systematic rape, torture and beheading?

If you have made a statement could you kindly forward it to me.

I would like a reply by 12 noon on the 29th of October if you need more time let me know.

Thank you

Trudeau ignores the American role in eliminating al-Baghdadi

Trudeau ignores the American role in eliminating al-Baghdadi

On 26 October 2019, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State (ISIS, Daesh, Caliphate), killed himself and three of his children by detonating a suicide vest during the Barisha raid conducted by the American Delta Force in Syria’s northwestern Idlib Province.

In a speech to the nation Sunday morning, President Trump, said the U.S. had been searching for al-Baghdadi for years, calling his capture or death “the top national security priority of my administration.”

Hours later Canada’s prime minister Justin Trudeau issued on Twitter a short statement:

The death of al-Baghdadi is a major step in the fight against Daesh. Canada will continue to work with our partners to ensure the enduring defeat of Daesh, including through the Global Coalition, Operation IMPACT and the @NATO training mission in Iraq.

In his statement Trudeau avoided mentioning any reference to the Islamic ideology of the Islamic State (ISIS, Daesh, Caliphate), that based its policy on the teachings of Islamic Law (Shariah) and ignored the American role in the war against ISIS and the elimination of al-Baghdadi.

Andrew Scheer, the leader of the Conservative Party of Canada tweeted:

The evil ISIS terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead. The world is a safer place today thanks to the efforts of US forces, as well as the intelligence gathered by our Kurdish allies. I commend those involved in delivering justice for al-Baghdadi’s many victims.
