Khat In Canada
Written by Paul Fromm

*Khat* In Canada

"In Canada, the U.S. and most of Europe, *khat* is illegal. But, despite
the ban, demand remains high among the East African diaspora — there are an
estimated 150,000 Somalis living in Canada, mostly in Toronto, Ottawa and
cities in Alberta. *Canada Border Services Agency* officials confiscate*khat
* shipments almost every day at Toronto’s Pearson airport. In June and July
alone, 1,610 kilograms were seized, with an estimated street value of up to
$800,000. ... *'Khat chewing induces a state of euphoria and elation with
feelings of increased alertness and arousal,*' according to the *World
Health Organization*. 'This is followed by a stage of vivid discussions,
loquacity and an excited mood. Thinking is characterized by a flight of
ideas but without the ability to concentrate. However, at the end of a *khat
* session the user may experience depressive mood, irritability, anorexia
and difficulty to sleep.' ... The *Catha edulis* plant, contains 40 organic
compounds or alkaloids. Cathinone and, to a lesser degree, cathine are what
affect the nervous system, increasing blood pressure and heart rate,
eliciting feelings of euphoria. Chemically and behaviourally, cathinone is
similar to an amphetamine but less powerful. And the moment the plant is
picked, cathinone starts to break down. Rapidly. The shipment, which will
fetch as much as $110 a bundle in Toronto, has to move fast or it will
become worthless. [Getting the stuff to Somali stoners or *khat* heads
around the world demands impressive organizational skills: Collection
starts before dawn in the East African hill country,] where boys and men
perch like flocks of birds in crooked branches and quickly pluck the day’s
harvest. [By 8 a.m., the twigs are in the hands of 100 women in Maua who
sort and grade the stuff. By 10 a.m., huge sacks are being roped onto
trucks that will rocket off to Nairobi at 11:00. There, it is inspected and
sorted again and] another team comes in to package the goods into wooden
crates for the night flights from Nairobi’s international airport to London
and Amsterdam. (Although the Netherlands banned *khat* in January,
shipments are still reportedly exported to there). [The shipment lingers in
Nairobi for some time as locals sample the product and experience what is
known as the daily *khat* paralysis -- a kind of over-excited siesta.
Nevertheless,] the* khat* should arrive at *Heathrow Airport* by dawn, move
through customs, and be ready for consumption in London’s kebab shops or
corner stores about 12 hours after it left Nairobi. More than 3,000 tonnes
of* khat* are imported into the United Kingdom each year, according to a
2011 report by the *Home Office*. The price for a bag on the street in
London fluctuates but is rarely more than $10. ... And a little more than
48 hours [after being picked], those tender branches, now wilting, will be
stuffed into the cheeks of Toronto chewers. ... After 10:30 p.m. in
Rexdale, in north Toronto, the *Benadir Mall* parking lot fills and men
lean on their cars and lounge on plastic lawn chairs or curbside. It looks
like a Somali tailgate party, but, instead of football, hibachis and beer,
there is *khat*. The *khat* is good quality on this summer night, so it was
likely picked 48 hours earlier in the Nyambene Hills. A bag that cost a
couple of dollars in Maua goes for $110 in Toronto. [Surely a small fortune
in a community where employment is low and welfare dependence high. Oh, the
enrichment of this diversity!] [image: Khat In
one says how this shipment got here, but the smugglers’ route is well
known. The *khat* is legally bought in London and then concealed in duffle
bags, suitcases or, as one recent case revealed, in a bulky body pack that
a smuggler wore during the seven-hour flight from Heathrow to
Toronto’s *Pearson
Airport*. ... But aside from obvious tips such as flagging passengers who
paid cash for their flight from London, profiling a *khat* smuggler is
nearly impossible. They vary in age and ethnicity, from frequent flyers to
first-timers, young female British students to senior members of Somalia’s
community. ... The *Benadir Mall* gatherings are a little later these days
due *to Ramadan*. People don’t come until the sun has set and the daily
fast is broken. As many as a 100 chew some nights and the crowd includes
students, accountants, cab drivers, the rich and the unemployed, ranging in
age from early 20s to late 60s. All are male. Police cruisers sometimes
roll through but rarely stop. Policing *khat* falls to the* CBSA*, who
seizes shipments at the airport and the *RCMP*, who investigate and lay
charges. Arrests by local police for consumers are unusual. Dealers aren’t
often caught since it’s the smugglers who get nabbed first. ... It is a
competitive business and it is not uncommon for a dealer to call police
anonymously to alert authorities about a rival’s shipment to drive up his
own price or for bragging rights. These stories are shared along with the *
khat* in the mall parking lot. There is no better place to debate
*khat*and the diversity of the views is surprising. 'Talk to me,' says
30-year-old Ali. 'I think (*khat* is) a terrible thing and I chew.' While
his friends laugh and jostle him, he lays out his case: 'It wastes a lot of
time. Because I don’t drink, I do this after work but I wish I didn’t. I
don’t think it’s physically addictive but socially it is. I want to be part
of the buzz.' Ali says he is glad it is illegal because it cuts down on
widespread use, making it too expensive for many to afford. He doesn’t want
a younger generation to share his habit." (*Toronto Star*, August 25, 2012)

Between April and June alone of this year, *CBSA* seized "50,000 bundles of
*khat* it says were worth nearly $2 million." (*City TV*, September 14,

*“As The War Drums Beat” -- A Report on a Visit to Iran by U.S. A3P
Presidential Candidate Merlin Miller*

I contemplate my recent trip to the Islamic Republic of Iran and ask myself
who wants war between America and Iran. I quickly surmise that it is not
the American people, nor the Iranian people, but globalists (international
bankers and their multinational beneficiaries). They control Israel, the
American media and most of our politicians…and by extension our foreign

My journey to this exotic and little understood land began with an
invitation to “New Horizon – The First International Independent Filmmakers
Festival”. It was a conference and festival held in Tehran from September
2nd through September 7th. Filmmakers and intellectuals from around the
world attended. It was one of the most stimulating experiences that I have
ever had and an effective bridge between diverse cultures and perspectives
– with the purpose of promoting truth, justice, liberty, and peace.

This initiative was undertaken, not by America or other world leaders, but
by a country unfairly besieged with sanctions and threats of war. My
observations were in stark contrast to the perceptions of most Americans.
What I experienced was a devout country with a love of God, family, and
nation – and an uncompromising respect for the noblest of human endeavors.

As I write this, a giant, beautiful book, *Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam*, lies
next to me. Khayyam’s wonderful poems have survived the test of time and
are a testament to the normally peaceful spirit of the Persian people. This
treasure was given to me by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Inside its back
cover, he inscribed the following for me (transcribed from Farsi):

*In the name of God who loves human beings.*

*My dear brother:*
*I, you, we and all of us are pursuing truth and happiness for human
beings, which is unfortunately a victim of world powers.*
*This is a historical opportunity to undermine all inhuman relations and
put an end to prejudices, which have questioned the truths and separates
them, to build a new beautiful world based on love, justice and beauty.*
*This is a historical and certainly achievable objective. It only needs our
hands, minds and hearts to join each other.*
*I pray Great God to bless you, who love humanity and wish success for all.
I hope to meet you in a better future.*

*M. Ahmadinejad *
*September 8, 2012*

I found President Ahmadinejad to be a humble man with a firm handshake and
intense, intelligent eyes. Despite his courteous and dignified bearing, he
has been regularly berated, and routinely misrepresented, by a controlled
western media. Is their demonization justified, or has he been targeted as
the lone political figure standing against Zionist powers? This is my
attempt to represent truths, such that the world might have a better
understanding of Iran, its people, and its leadership.

The Iranian people are similar to Europeans in appearance…a beautiful
people, poised and kind. Their women wear clothing which modestly cover
them, but in elegant fashion and with serene faces that are usually
exposed. They return smiles and are not treated as second class citizens,
as we have been conditioned to believe. In fact, they outnumber men in
higher education enrollments. There is no profanity and women are safe on
any Tehran street – at any time of day or night. The influences of western
civilization have not been totally removed, but the Iranians resist the
decadence of cultural-Marxism. I attribute this largely to their faith and
love of family. I was surprised to discover that the Islamic faith actually
honors Jesus and Christianity. However, through Zionist media control,
policy dictates, and other manipulations, the Christian world is
incessantly convinced that Muslims should be our enemies and that we should
be theirs.

Muslims look with jaundiced eye upon the outrageous media lies and
perpetual assaults on their faith and culture. Hollywood’s promotion of
twisted films can provoke extremist reactions, and we are then led to
believe that Muslims are all radicals. We never question the bizarre
promotion of these divisive, Zionist inspired productions, or the actions
of multinational interests in the internal affairs of sovereign Islamic
nations. Were we to look honestly at the many false portrayals, we would
see remarkable similarities to how our Christian communities have also been
assaulted – increasingly with contempt and disrespect by these same Zionist
and Cultural Marxist propagandists. They seek a globalist new world order –
devoid of the diversity and freedoms associated with independent nation

As I wandered from the festival grounds to meet people on the streets, I
found them to be most helpful and without animosity – despite my obvious
American nationality. I enjoyed their exotic food and came to appreciate
the craftsmanship of their products. The only negative sensation that I had
was in witnessing the mad house traffic situation in Tehran. A city of 15
million, it has grown faster that it’s infrastructure. Despite this, the
city is thriving with new construction and beautiful parks and monuments –
which reflect a noble and accomplished people. The Iranians seemingly love
Americans, but are rightly concerned and critical of our irrational and
invasive government policies. The common response seems to be “why would
your country want to attack us?”

The current condemnation of Iran is supposedly due to the possibility that
they may develop nuclear weapons. We should all work for a world free from
nuclear threat, but the sovereignty of nations must also be respected. Iran
is signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and has opened their
facilities for inspection, declaring their interest is for energy
development only. No evidence to the contrary has been shown, and Iran’s
Supreme Leader, the Ayatollah Khamenei condemns nuclear weaponry – actually
declaring a “Fatwa” against them – as it is contrary to their nation’s
faith. However, Israel, their chief accuser (and architect behind the
campaign to falsely accuse Iraq of possessing “weapons of mass
destruction”), is believed to possess over 300 nuclear weapons. Israel is
not signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and has no intention
of sharing information or opening their facilities for inspection – yet
America continues to march to their fanatical war drums against others. Why
is there no pressure on Israel to meet the same standards and why are we
imposing “sanctions” against a nation that has done us no wrong? It is a
preliminary act of war, and only imposed because Israeli lobbies demand it
of our lap-dog politicians, who incredibly serve Zionist interests rather
than the American people.

Iran is a strategic rival for regional hegemony in the resource rich
middle-east and has stood strong for Islamic unity. They also courageously
and most justifiably call for an end to the Palestinian occupation – the
ruthless suppression of an enslaved people, largely funded by America.
There is no greater injustice than that being perpetrated against the
Palestinian people. World condemnation, through the United Nations is
consistently blocked by U.S. actions on the Security Council. As a result,
the Non Aligned Nations Movement (NAM) is growing as an alternative to the
UN. Its recent success is not generally reported in Western media, but 120
nations came together in Tehran the week before the New Horizon Film
Festival – in unity and in opposition to the evils of the Israeli
occupation of Palestine. The Secretary General of the United Nations even
attended, as well as observers from Russia and China. The Palestinian
occupation and Israeli aggressions (including “false flag” operations
against other nations) are at the root of the discontents for Zionism.

As President Ahmadinejad gave me copy of Khayyam’s works, I gave him copy
of my western motion picture, “Jericho”, and my political book, “Our Vision
for America”. When I asked him what messages I might convey to the American
people, he indicated “truths” and “Iran’s desire for peace”. Through lies
and evil acts, Globalists and Zionists falsely portray Iran, as they seek
conflict between nations. I later told him that our State Department should
be meeting with Iran’s leaders and not depending on the initiatives of
private citizens, like me. However, I hope that he and the Iranian people
take hope in the prospect that many patriotic Americans are awakening to
the evils that have consumed us, even while our politicians continue to
betray the otherwise good spirit and traditions of the American people.
Growing numbers seek answers that might save America and truly promote
world peace.

Americans do not want war, and are beginning to realize that our
politicians, of both major parties, initiate these actions against the
wishes of the American people – and in accord with the intrigues of
international bankers and their Zionist agents. It is time we stopped them
by creating alternatives in politics, and in media. Iran sees the need and
is taking appropriate initiatives, and so should America.

I went to Iran to promote the prospects for producing “False Flag”, a
critically important motion picture. I returned to America more committed
than ever to produce this political thriller and, through commercial
entertainment, help awaken a sleeping America. Vital truths must be
revealed so that new evils are not perpetrated against the people of
America and Iran, with destructive effects resonating throughout the world.
I also return committed to building a viable third party, which will
represent traditional working class Americans, rather than perpetuating a
corrupt two party system, which serves special global interests. God
willing, my answer to the courageous efforts of President Ahmadinejad is “I
also hope to meet you in a better future”.
