The p.c. reactions to the Canadian Muslim terror bust–and the swiftness with which the MSM has lost interest in the story (quick, get back to Brangelina!)– show we remain a doomed continent of ostriches. It’s the subject of my Vent: The jihadis among us.
And from my column:
Many clueless North Americans remain shocked, shocked, that jihadis live among them — despite the open secret of our northern neighbor’s reputation as an Islamic terrorist safe haven. A cloud of befuddlement looms. The Toronto Star reports, with jaw-dropping dim-wittedness, that “it is difficult to find a common denominator” among those who would kill us.
Pass me a clue-by-four: It’s the jihad, stupid. It’s been going on since before the Crusades. And it continues under our noses.
The Canadian plot has been tied to the arrests of two young Georgia Muslim men earlier this year. One is Ehsanul Islam Sadequee. Note to editors: please do not substitute “Islam” with the word “Peace.”
Sadequee and Syed Haris Ahmed traveled to Toronto last March and met with several other targets of a Joint Terrorism Task Force probe. They discussed terrorist strikes on oil refinieries and military bases, and “plotted how to disable the Global Positioning System.” Ahmed went on to Pakistan in an effort to obtain “Islamic schooling” at a terrorist training camp, according to an FBI affidavit.
The ranks of the infidel-annihilating plotters among us are legion.
In May, Shahawar Matin Siraj was convicted of plotting to blow up the Herald Square subway station in New York City . He caught the attention of law enforcement after ranting against the US at a local Islamic bookstore.
Also last month, Virginia Death Row inmate and Nation of Islam convert John Allan Mohammed was convicted of six Maryland murders from his fall 2002 Beltway-area criminal spree. His brainwashed Muslim protégé, Lee Malvo, testified that the duo plotted to kill children, cops, and pregnant women — and to recruit and train 140 homeless men at a Canadian compound who would commit mass terror in cities across America.
In April, a federal jury convicted 23-year-old Hamid Hayat, a Lodi man, of attending a terrorist training camp in Pakistan and returning to the US to commit violent jihad against his fellow citizens.
In March, Iranian-born US citizen Mohammed Reza Taheri-Azar drove a rented Jeep Cherokee into a mass of students on the campus of the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill to avenge US actions against Muslims around the world. “I live with the holy Koran as my constitution for right and wrong and definition of injustice,” the UNC engineering grad wrote.
Last summer, officials busted a terrorist plot to attack infidels at military and Jewish sites in the Los Angeles on the fourth anniversary of 9/11 or the Jewish holy days. It was devised by militant Muslim converts of Jam’iyyat Ul-Islam Is-Saheeh (Arabic for “Assembly of Authentic Islam”) who had sworn allegiance to violent jihad at California’s New Folsom State Prison.
No common denominator? Please extract your infidel heads from the blinding sands before you lose them.
