After all the ballyhoo in the press, you could be forgiven if you believe the biggest threat to America is Russia. But if you do believe that, you are wrong.
Are we really serious about fighting terror?
We were all shocked when a suicide bomber killed 22 people—mostly young girls—in Manchester, UK on May 22nd. We were again shocked at the vehicular/stabbing attack in London on June 3rd, in which seven died, and dozens were injured—many seriously. But the British government shouldn’t have been surprised at all. To anyone who can perceive the obvious, terrorism is almost exclusively the purview of Muslims. And the UK has been importing a substantial number of Muslims for decades.
The Daily Mail reported on January 30, 2016, that the Muslim population in England and Wales was 950,000 in 1991, 1.9% of the population. [Figures from the UK’s Office of National Statistics (ONS)] Ten years later, the next census revealed the total was 1,546,626—3% of the whole—a 58% increase.
In 2011, said the Daily Mail, “the Muslim population of England and Wales was 2,706,066—representing 4.8 percent of the overall number. As the ONS noted, this represented a 75 per cent jump in the space of a decade.”
On January 2, 2017, Gatestone Institute reported: “The Muslim population of Britain surpassed 3.5 million in 2016 to become around 5.5% of the overall population of 64 million, according to figures extrapolated from a recent study on the growth of the Muslim population in Europe.”
The Global Jihad Movement is not just a few Muslims
The truth is, there is a global jihad movement to replace all governments with Shariah law. And Those who support it are not in the minority. A 2015 survey by Al Jazeera.net conducted in Arabic yielded alarming results:
“Respondents overwhelmingly support the Islamic State terrorist group, with 81% voting ‘YES’ on whether they approved of ISIS’s conquests in the region.”
“The poll, which asked in Arabic, ‘Do you support the organizing victories of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS)?’ has generated over 38,000 responses thus far, with only 19% of respondents voting ‘NO’ to supporting ISIS.”
A 2014 poll of Saudis concluded that 92% believe “Islamic State conforms to the values of Islam and Islamic law.” [Translation of original site is here.] Online polls are not scientifically conducted, but these results indicate that far more than a minority of Muslims agree with ISIS values and methods.
Making sure we lose the war
Leftist Western leaders are hell-bent on continuing the influx of Muslim migrants into their countries. To do that they have to silence critics of their policies and conceal the true nature of the threat.
Germany, which has already devastated its society by admitting Muslim migrants for years—over a million in the last two, hosted a Muslim population of “6,262,000 by the end of 2016. This amounts to approximately 7.5% of Germany's overall population of 82 million,” estimated Gatestone Institute.
Yet, Deutschland apparently intends to keep the spigot turned on: The New Observer reported that “Justice Minister Heiko Maas introduced a draft law on May 19th to the Bundestag, which requires social media networks to remove any references to the mass nonwhite invasion of Germany, and which forbids the spreading of any news which has not come through channels or journalists which the government has officially endorsed.”
In Britain, even criticism of ISIS is apparently over the line. A Facebook moderator punished Paul Golding, leader of the nationalist Britain First: He was “‘logged out of his Facebook account…’ for posting a picture of an ISIS flag-themed toilet [tissue] roll.”
Facebook later apologized, a spokesman saying “We made a mistake by incorrectly identifying this post as supporting ISIS. After review, we realized that the post was mocking the terrorist group, and it has therefore been restored.”
In America, a parallel effort is underway, for some time, though the censors have to tread more carefully, due to our First Amendment.
The refusal of people like Obama, Hillary Clinton—and HR McMaster, our present NatSec Advisor—to admit that terror is an Islamic phenomenon effectively paralyzes those who should be protecting us.
It’s notable that in his testimony Thursday, former FBI Director Comey accused the president of lying about the state the FBI has been in, during his time as its director:
Although the law required no reason at all to fire an FBI director, the administration then chose to defame me and, more importantly, the FBI by saying that the organization was in disarray, that it was poorly led, that the workforce had lost confidence in its leader. Those were lies, plain and simple. And I am so sorry that the FBI workforce had to hear them, and I am so sorry that the American people were told them.”
He went on to declare that The FBI’s “mission is to protect the American people.” This is how the FBI has been protecting us from Islamic terrorism, since 2011. In the fall of that year, Islamic groups demanded—and received—a purge of “offensive” references to Islam in FBI manuals and other government documents.
This resulted in the removal of terms like jihad, Muslim, Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and al-Qaeda from the FBI’s Counter-Terrorism Analytical Lexicon, according to a graphic comparison terror expert Stephen Coughlin prepared for Rep. Louie Gohmert. On May 10, 2012, the Congressman used the graph in a speech on the House floor decrying the Purge.
A note from the director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, Stephen Coughlin, in February of 2012 said this:
FBI Director Mueller secretly met on February 8 at FBI headquarters with a coalition of groups including various Islamist and militant Arabic groups who in the past have defended Hamas and Hizballah and have also issued blatantly anti-Semitic statements. At this meeting, the FBI revealed that it had removed more than 1000 presentations and curricula on Islam from FBI offices around the country that was deemed "offensive."
The FBI did not reveal what criteria was used to determine why material was considered "offensive" but knowledgeable law enforcement sources have told the IPT that it was these radical groups who made that determination. Moreover, numerous FBI agents have confirmed that from now on, FBI headquarters has banned all FBI offices from inviting any counter-terrorist specialists who are considered "anti-Islam" by Muslim Brotherhood front groups.
And this was on the watch of the acclaimed former–FBI chief Robert Mueller; the same man recently named a special counsel to oversee the investigation into ties between President Trump’s campaign and Russian officials.
In his almost four years as FBI director, Comey did nothing to repair the damage done to the FBI in 2011.
Congressional Democrats wasted over four months jabbering about President Trump being under investigation for his supposed collusion with the Russians, yet Comey admitted in his testimony that Trump was not under investigation. The real collusion was between Dems and the Media. Ari Fleischer told Fox News on Thursday that many people on Capitol Hill tried to tell the press that Trump was never under investigation, but “the press deliberately and willfully ignored it.” Neither Congress nor the press did their jobs, for the last four months.
Meanwhile, the jihadis have been doing their jobs. And the Left has been doing its job: concealing the threat of the jihadis, and concealing the true reason they kill.
Why the jihadis kill
But no matter how the Left works to conceal terror’s Islamic basis, it’s demonstrable that the motive for those who carry out the violence is that they believe the attacks will bring a religious reward.
The Telegraph reported that only a few hours before the London attack, a “message written in English and Arabic was posted Saturday morning on the [encrypted] Telegram messaging service by an ISIL-linked news service called Nashir News Agency.” The message, in the form of a digital poster, exhorted Muslims to: “Gain benefit from Ramadhan,” by running people over with vehicles. Pictures of a gun, a knife, and a truck appeared below. Terrormonitor.org tweeted the poster:
In an article published four days before the latest assault, The Malaysian Insight (a publication in the Muslim nation of Malaysia) explains that “terror attacks in Manchester, Jakarta and Egypt… were planned to coincide with Ramadan,” according to counterterrorism experts:
Ahmad El-Muhammady, who is involved in rehabilitating militants, and Malaysia’s Special Branch counter-terrorism unit principal assistant director Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay told The Malaysian Insight that Islamic militants believe their reward in heaven will be greater if they staged the attacks closer to Ramadan.
That reward was the driving force, which got them to commit these ‘big operation’ terror acts,” said Ahmad.
They often use the experience of the Prophet, who was at war during Ramadan, as justification. That is why attacks such as these are important to them.
Terrormonitor.org also gleaned a tweet from “pro-#IslamicState Social Media Accounts” celebrating the UK attacks and giving full instructions on procuring a truck for murder:
There will never be a solution to Islamic terrorism until we acknowledge that it’s based upon religion.
In the face of terrorism sweeping across Europe and threatening America, nothing has been done about the FBI Purge and Obama has been out of office more than four months. Doubtless, the president has not been told about it by his Islam-friendly advisors HR McMaster and Kris Bauman. And former FBI Director Comey hasn't spoken up.
It’s time to set aside the deranged hunt for Russian ghosts and start protecting America.
