The jihad is here, and every American is a target.
Four Marines and a Navy petty officer were shot dead in cold blood and one police officer was wounded last Thursday in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The murderer, Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez, was not on any watch lists or any terror suspect lists.
He was born in Kuwait, which brings us back to our disastrous immigration policies. Obama is importing hundreds of thousands of Muslims from jihad nations, as well as from “moderate” Muslim countries like Kuwait. Without recognition of the ideology behind these attacks, we are sitting ducks.
The New York Times reported Thursday that “in the last two or three months,” Abdulazeez “had begun showing up rather regularly at Friday Prayer at the Islamic Society of Greater Chattanooga, a large mosque and cultural center, said Dr. Azhar S. Sheikh, a founding member of the center’s board. Dr. Sheikh said that he showed no signs of extremism. He said the family regularly worshiped at the mosque.”
What is being taught at that mosque? Are investigators simply going to assume that the mosque is “moderate” and that Abdulazeez was “radicalized” elsewhere? If that is true, why couldn’t the peaceful teachings he heard at the mosque withstand the appeal of the “radicals”?
This mosque should be investigated. And it is not the only one. All the mosques linked to jihad attacks and plots should be investigated.
Right now, nothing is being done to stop jihad recruiting in U.S. mosques, even as several hundred young Muslims from the U.S. have gone to wage jihad for the Islamic State and are now waging jihad here. And the lead DoJ official on the Abdulazeez case, Bill Killian, has vowed to criminalize social postings critical of Islam.
And now we hear that “authorities are still scrambling to find a motive for the attack.” This is more of Obama’s jihad denial. It’s mind-blowing and fatal. And Obama’s calling the Chattanooga jihad mass murderer a “lone gunman” is like calling Hitler a painter.
Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez, the jihad mass murderer, said, “We need … to establish Islam in the world.” And the authorities are scratching their heads? The only difference between the Garland jihad attack and Chattanooga is that we were armed. We are thwarting jihad attacks every week, and law enforcement doesn’t know the motive?
And while this devout Muslim tells us what he is doing, Obama, Killian and Obama’s other dissemblers tell us that this has nothing to do with Islam. The designated terror group and media darlings over at the Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations. Or CAIR, made a statement condemning the “deadly attack in Chattanooga, Tenn.” And the media were broadcasting it all over the news, never mentioning that CAIR was an unindicted co-conspirator in America’s largest terror funding case, or that the United Arab Emirates designated it a terrorist organization. CAIR’s statement is deception. Does it condemn the ideology? Does it condemn jihad?And while Muslims in the U.S. condemn the Islamic State, where are they teaching against the ideology that gave rise to it?
Yet the media and many law enforcement officials treat CAIR as if it were a genuine civil-rights organization. This is the same myopia that led Abdulazeez’s father, Youssuf Abdulazeez, to be appointed as a “special policeman” for Chattanooga’s Department of Public Works in March 2005, according to the Times Free Press. And yet the New York Times is reporting that his father was under investigation years ago as part of a foreign terrorist organization.
This speaks once again to how confused and clueless law enforcement is concerning the jihad threat. On the one hand, Abdulazeez’s father is appointed a “special policeman,” and on the other hand, he was under investigation for ties to a jihad terror organization. Obama’s prohibition on jihad and Islam from being mentioned in counter-terror programs and training materials is ridiculous and incoherent.
We are in trouble, folks, real trouble. The Obama administration scrubbed jihad and Islam from all counter terror materials and programs. This is the poisonous fruit of that fatal policy change.
U.S. law enforcement officials must take it upon themselves to learn about what Islam and jihad are really all about, and strategize about how to stop it accordingly. The mosques must be monitored. Muslim immigration must stop.
Rush Limbaugh asked Friday: “Why did we start sucking up to Muslims after 9/11?”
When we elected Obama.
America unknowingly surrendered. But now it is time to reverse that.
