Back in 2013, I ran across a Facebook page called Islamic National Socialism (Nazism.) The page was covered in anti-Semitic and other anti-infidel propaganda. I did a little digging and found it was connected to another page called Chemical Weapons Industries-CWI, which purported to deal in chemical and biological weapons. Iranian-Canadian Muslim Amir Hossein Raisolsadat, a chemistry student at the University of Prince Edward Island, was the admin of those pages.
I published the first piece on Raisolsadat and CWI on April 1, 2013. I also submitted tips to law enforcement about CWI and those I knew were involved with it. Shortly thereafter, this site was inundated with veiled threats in the comments from Raisolsadat and his fellow CWI admins. As more information about Raisolsadat and his associates was found, the story picked up steam in the counterjihad blogosphere. This culminated in the CWI folks putting a bounty on my head as well as that of fellow counterjihad activists in early June.

What I didn’t know was that Canadian authorities had begun looking into Raisolsadat after I alerted them to his nefarious online dealings. Police obtained a warrant based on images of Raisolsadat found online showing him next to a castor bean plant. Castor beans are used to make the deadly toxin ricin. In August 2013, police interviewed Raisolsadat, who denied any involvement in terror activity or any affiliation with CWI. Of course, we all know better, otherwise this would be a non-story.
Police began collecting Raisolsadat’s trash later that year. What they found was alarming – chemical formulas for calcium phosphide (an explosive compound), as well as a drawing of a rocket labeled “warhead.” An officer who viewed the drawing wrote, “The warhead section appeared to be designed to deliver a chemical or biological agent.” By this point, police had obtained a warrant. They entered Raisolsadat’s residence when he was out for the day and found 51 castor beans, as well as multiple castor bean plants and pods. Also seized were multiple hard drives, phones, and storage devices. Oh, and let’s not forget the eight journals Raisolsadat had put together with bomb diagrams, chemical formulas and drawings of explosions.
“…I believe that Amir Raisolsadat has the capability and intent to carry out a terrorist activity. I also believe that the results of the General Warrant show that Amir Raisolsadat has in his possession enough castor beans to produce a substantial quantity of ricin,” an officer wrote. If he weren’t involved in terrorist activity, why the castor beans? Why the diagrams? The evidence paints a damning picture.
The wannabe mujahid’s lawyer claims this whole saga is a huge “misunderstanding,” and that his client’s family received death threats after the story broke. Raisolsadat has been prohibited from leaving the province and is due back in court in the near future.
