Ezra provides an argument as to the nature of the self-admitted terrorist Omar Khadr and for the likely outcomes of Omar being repatriated from the Guantanamo Bay prison to the Canadian justice system in the near future. Ezra has provided copious references notes supporting his thesis that occupy almost 20% of the book, yet instead of being a stuffy academic treatise the book retains Ezra's talent for mocking an opposing point of view in an entertaining way.

Without doubt, you are going to feel strongly about this book, as it brings up issues that divides the western world into different camps on philosophy and politics. Issues such as personal responsibility, what constitutes treason, what the social contract is for citizenship, hypocrisy in justice and politics, propaganda, torture, international law, and media bias. It also should raise questions in the reader as to their own beliefs, biases and prejudices, whichever side you are on.

For those who haven't been intently following the Omar Khadr case in Canada, the book lays out who Omar Khadr is, his formative influences, his family, and even hints at what his current mental disposition and ideology is (as well as could be gleaned from psychological and behavioural reports can). Much of the most damning evidence is taken from his guilty plea confession, one that some readers may be inclined to dismiss if their personal philosophy is that all such confessions are invalid due to the claim of duress under the circumstances. Ezra is hoping to convince you that Omar's behaviour is wilfully treasonous and will continue to be treasonous and thus a danger to Canada and her citizens.

Ezra Levant's purplish flourishes throughout this book make it a fun read for those, like myself, who sympathize with his point of view. For a lot of other readers, however, it could get in the way of its substance. Even so, it is a devastating portrait not just of a cold-blooded, hardened terrorist but equally, of the willful blindness of the horde of "progressive" liberals who dominate the pages of the mainstream media and university faculty lounges on both sides of the 49th parallel. Their relentless campaign to foist upon Canada one of al-Quaeda's bloodthirstiest operatives, now at the point of success, says far more about their character than they would like.

I know Omar Khadr. I've been to Guantanmo over 30 times, and have seen him in court for weeks on end. My recollection of Omar is not that starry-eyed 15-year-old kid pictured so often in the world's media. No, not by a long shot... Yet since most Canadian media who traveled with me to Gitmo from 2005-2009 have consistently reported that he's the "victim," why Omar has come to believe it. Imagine that. Meanwhile, as radical Islam-inspired terrorists continue to kill Westerners until they re-establish a caliphate and destroy our freedom, the battle of ideas is critical to our survival. Make no mistake, if/when Omar is released from a Canadian prison, he'll join the chorus of fellow Islamists crying "Islamophobia!". Who knows how many misguided young men and women will follow his lead? How many more Canadians and Americans will be killed in the name of jihad? If there's one book those who truly cherish freedom should read, it's this.

A hate fueled tirade with lots of right-wing opinion and little factual evidence. Ezra Levant is full of hot air and nonsense. Don't waste your time on this junk.
