Omar Khadr says he’s sorry for all the pain his payment from the Canadian government caused the Canadian people, but we all know that’s a big lie, if he was really sorry he would donate the money to the victim’s family, instead TheRebel.Media had to start a fundraiser for the victim’s family, the goal for the fundraiser is $1 million and Canadians are already donating, check it out here.
‘I’m not a hardened terrorist’ said Omar Khadr in a interview with Canadian Press reporter in a Q and A session.
Q: What do you say to those Canadians who view you as an unrepentant terrorist who deserves no mercy, let alone an apology and compensation?
A: I’m not a hardened terrorist bent on doing anything. But they don’t have to believe what I say. Look at my actions. My past: I’m not excusing it, I’m not denying it. We all do things that we wish we could change. All I can do right now is focus on the present and do my best to become a productive member of society, a good person, a good human being. Look at my actions and judge me on that.
Q: How do you react to those who say you’re now profiting from a criminal past?
A: I can’t discuss any details of the settlement but I don’t look at this as profiting. This is not a time for profit or for gaining or for thinking, ‘I hit the jackpot.’ This is a time for remembering. It’s a time of reconciliation. This is a time for healing and it’s not about forgetting. I’m sorry if this is causing people pain. I’m trying to turn a page. Not to forget that page, but just trying to turn a page and move along.
Q: Do you think you deserve an apology from the Canadian government on behalf of Canadians?
A:I don’t look at it in a way that I deserve it. It’s not a matter of deserving. It’s a matter of trying to find the best way where we can reconciliate what happened and move forward in a way that is going to be healthy for everybody.
