Who thinks Omar Khadr and his parents should have their citizenship revoked?
He is a grown Taliban, friends with the Bin Laden kids, let him fry and revoke Canadian citizenship to Omar, to his family and to any of his criminal associates. Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Agnostic, whatever, you leave the country and take up arms against Canada or its allies, you lose the rights of a citizen.

He chose to engage in militant activities. Human rights should apply to the women and children who live under barbaric Islamic regimes and not to the terrorist males who keep them in their place. It is shameful and low for people in this country to sympathize with a terrorist. It is sometimes necessary to use drastic techniques to obtain information that protects lives. Maybe if people stopped believing that militants are victims of injustice and that the real victims are the ones killed mercilessly by terrorist acts, they would come to see the law is protecting them against the terrorists. They put themselves and society at risk by demanding the rights of these people are protected. This should not be a human rights issue. We should care about ourselves, our country, its security and our own citizens. To sacrifice security for 33 million people for the sake of a terrorist speaks to the hate and hypocrisy of the Left and their radical supporters.
If he is over twelve, it doesn't matter. He wasn't forced to do it. I came across one story last year about Hamas forcing a woman accused of adultery to engage in a suicide bombing or else, face being stoned to death. If that doesn't sum up the structural problems of Islam, then nothing does and the liberals and leftists who continue to support multiculturalism, the importation of radical Muslims through immigration, the human rights of accused terrorists and ridiculous limits on free speech are obviously supportive of their agenda. The same with someone like Jimmy Carter: anyone who blames Israelis for suicide bombings and calls for negotiations with Hamas is in kahoots with them.

During the visit this week to Canada the President will probably release this kid and then he will come back to Canada and start saying his rights were violated and demand and keep demanding compensation for Canada not doing enough to get him out of Gitmo ( even though it is alleged that he killed an American with a grenade) . His family has been fighting to get him home since he was incarcerated. I think his father was a terrorist of sorts though. I personally think he was brainwashed but still he wasn't a baby he knew that throwing that grenade would kill. He should remain in prison. To let him go would just open another can of worms. The family wants money and to make a point. That the father and son weren't terrorists even though technically they were . I hope America tries him and puts him away.

He's not being "railroaded," and he's not entitled to call upon Canadian law to help him.
He was caught in a foreign country committing acts of war against another country. In war, you don't get to have your Miranda rights read to you when you get caught. You don't get lawyers, habeas corpus and the Brenda Martin treatment.
American military justice, which is a lot softer on guys like him than that in the country where he went to war, is the proper way to deal with guys who blow up medics. The last thing we need is more members of the Khadr terrorist family wandering our streets, throwing hand grenades at people and plotting acts of terrorism.

What are these people doing in Canada in the first place? The immigration dept needs to check the backgrounds of potential immigrants more closely. Anyway, I'm sure that CSIS is watching the whole Khadr family very closely, and I'm also sure that we won't see that terrorist Omar skateboarding at the local mall in Scarborough anytime soon.

You have a point. However, as a Canadian citizen he is entitled to due process of the law. Right now he is being railroaded by a fascist, lying American government and Mr Harper is going along with it. Shame on him!
After due process of the law and depending on the outcome, revoking his citizenship is certainly an option.

I could not agree more! You take up arms against your country (US or Canada) and you are a TRAITOR. Losing citizenship and deportation should be the LEAST of the punishment.

Perhaps you should ask the widow or the children of SFC Nathan Chapman. He was killed by Khadr when the grenade was tossed into SFC Chapman's vehicle.Source(s): Vet

The Khadr family
CBC News Online | October 30, 2006
Canadian courts continued looking at the future of Abdullah Khadr on Oct. 30, 2006. The court must determine whether Khadr, whose younger brother remains in custody in Guantanamo Bay, can be deported to the United States to also face charges.
Ahmed Said Khadr Accused of being a "founding member" of al-Qaeda and financier for the organization.
Put on a list of suspected terrorists after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
Killed in a shootout with Pakistani forces near the Afghanistan border
Today, 47-year-old Maha El Samnah is to step off a plane at Toronto's Pearson airport. She will return from Pakistan to the country of her citizenship after a prolonged absence that was rarely dull. Her youngest son is coming with her. He has been wounded in battle, as have several other family members.
Abdul Karim Khadr, 14, is recovering from a bullet that grazed his spine last October. His father, known as al-Kanadi, Arabic for "the Canadian," was among the militants killed in that battle, with Pakistani counterterrorism agents
We are an Al Qaeda family." So spoke one of the Khadrs, a Muslim Canadian household whose near single-minded devotion to Osama bin Laden contains important lessons for the West
If you really want to see more about the family look for the video of them talking a couple years ago when the protest was going on in canada to stop them from staying here

CANADIAN NATIONAL INDICTED FOR CONSPIRACY TO PROCURE
WEAPONS FOR AL QAEDA, KILL AMERICANS OVERSEAS
BOSTON, MA-A federal grand jury has indicted a Canadian national on charges that he conspired to kill Americans overseas, conspired to use weapons of mass destruction, conspired to possess a destructive device in furtherance of a crime of violence, and did possess a destructive device in furtherance of a crime of violence.The indictment of Abdullah Khadr demonstrates the commitment of the United States to aggressively investigate and prosecute those who seek to kill Americans here or abroad" said U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan. "Khadr, as alleged in the indictment, conspired to kill U.S. and coalition military forces and other U.S. nationals fighting to liberate the people of Afghanistan. The FBI, Department of State, Department of Defense, the Counterterrorism Section of the Department of Justice and the Anti-Terrorism and National Security Section of the United States Attorney's Office deserve great credit for this intensive investigation and collaboration in building the case against Khadr," concluded Sullivan.
Khadr's father, Ahmed Said Khadr ("Ahmed Said"), was a trusted associate of Al Qaeda leader Usama Bin Laden ("bin Laden"). In 1997 and 1998, Khadr and other members of his family visited Bin Laden and his family at Nazim Jihad, Bin Laden's family compound outside of Jalalabad, Pakistan. In 1998, the Khadr family moved to the Bin Laden compound at Nazim Jihad, where they lived for about one month.
2. In the wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on targets within the United States, United States military personnel and equipment, in addition to military personnel and equipment from other countries allied with the United States ("Coalition Forces"), were deployed to Afghanistan in October 2001. Combat thereafter ensued in Afghanistan between United States and Coalition Forces and fighters controlled by or allied with the Taliban and/or al Qaeda.
3. In furtherance of the aforesaid conspiracy and to accomplish the object thereof, Khadr and his co-conspirators, both known and unknown to the grand jury, did do one or more acts to effect the object of the conspiracy, as follows:
a. In 2003, the local al Qaeda-influenced shura council (a group of male local leaders) vested Ahmed Said with operational responsibility for organizing attacks against United States and Coalition Forces in the border area of Afghanistan near Shagai, Pakistan. To assist in his efforts, Ahmed Said asked Khadr to procure munitions for use by al Qaeda and other fighters against United States and Coalition Forces.
b. From in or about May, 2003, through in or about October, 2003, Khadr purchased AK-47 ammunition, PK ammunition (for use in Russian PK machine guns), rocket-propelled grenades, rockets, and 82 mm and 120 mm mortar rounds.
c. Khadr distributed such munitions to other members of the conspiracy, known to the grand jury, for use by al Qaeda and other fighters in killing United States and Coalition Forces military personnel and other United States nationals in Afghanistan, and for training al Qaeda and other fighters to kill United States and Coalition Forces military personnel and other United States nationals in Afghanistan, and to damage and destroy property owned, leased, and used by the United States in Afghanistan.
d. In addition to procuring the previously-described munitions, Khadr provided explosive components, to wit, multiple 25-liter containers of hydrogen peroxide, to a conspirator, known to the grand jury, for use in making mines intended to be used in killing United States and Coalition Forces military personnel and other United States nationals in Afghanistan, and to damage and destroy property owned, leased, and used by the United States in Afghanistan
After Ahmed Said was killed by Pakistani forces in October, 2003, Khadr continued his efforts to procure munitions intended for use in killing United States and Coalition Forces military personnel and other United States nationals in Afghanistan, and in damaging and destroying property owned, leased, and used by the United States in Afghanistan. In or about October, 2004, Khadr engaged in negotiations for the purchase of missiles from a Pakistani conspirator, known to the grand jury, which Khadr intended to sell to another conspirator known to the grand jury for such use.
If convicted of the charges, Khadr faces potential imprisonment for life plus 30 years and a $1 million fine.
The investigation is continuing.
The case is being investigated by the Joint Terrorism Task Force, and has included special agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation from the Department of Justice, the Diplomatic Security Service from the Department of State, and the Defense Criminal Investigative Service from the Department of Defense. It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys James Farmer, Gregory Moffatt and Kimberly West, all of Sullivan's Anti-Terrorism and National Security Section and John Gibbs of the Counterterrorism Section of the Department of Justice.
