How Are We Supposed To "Accommodate" This?

Looks like there was no need for me to write a 700-word essay to denounce a few twisted arguments in support of "reasonable accomodation" for minorities. I could simply wait one more day - until this story was published by the National post:
TORONTO - A Toronto-area man has been posting messages on the Internet supporting attacks against Canadian soldiers on Canadian soil, drawing the attention of RCMP national security investigators.

Police have advised the Bangladeshi-Canadian that he is under investigation for incitement and facilitating terrorism after he repeatedly called the killing of Canadian troops in Canada "legitimate" and "well deserved."
So how are we supposed to accommodate this? And why should a Muslim militant from Bangladesh be "accomodated" in Canada, even if he's been here long enough to get a Canadian passport? If he has so much hatred towards the country that welcomed him, that he justifies terrorist attacks on its soil (let alone killing its soldiers overseas), then the least that could be done is making sure he's no longer welcome in his adopting country. He is not a "Bangladeshi-Canadian", he is a Bangladeshi with a Canadian passport; who must become simply - a Bangladeshi.
