Trudeau devalues the meaning of citizenship

A self-proclaimed follower of Islamic State pledged her allegiance to the terrorist army in a Toronto courtroom Monday.

It was the second time Rehab Dughmosh told a Canadian courtroom she’s loyal to ISIS, not Canada.

She's charged with seven offences related to assault, weapons and uttering a death threat, but not with any terrorism crimes.

The 32-year-old woman, believed to be from Syria, was charged by police after witnesses said she attacked people at a Canadian Tire with a golf club and then a long knife.

In court, Dughmosh covered her face with a niqab and spoke in Arabic.

She said she "meant to harm those people" (one employee was hurt but no one was killed) and if released would do it "again and again."

Dughmosh says she doesn’t recognize or accept Canadian law.

"I reject all counsel here," Dughmosh said, according to Global TV.

"I only believe in Islamic Sharia law. I would like to revoke my Canadian citizenship that I received. I don’t want to have any allegiance to you," she told the court through an interpreter.
