BEFORE we get to the latest “news” (in a long string of ever-increasing U.S. jihadis, be they converts or not) concerning Islamists caught plotting inside America, let’s veer slightly off course.
THE photo of John Booker (one of 2 confirmed Kansas jihadis, but there are likely others), though 5 years old, is quite interesting. Does anyone else notice that he can pass for a he/she? Androgynous…just a casual observation…small talk.
MOVING right along, several relevant intersections must be explored – related to the recent arrests – and they require an airing before we shine a spotlight on Kansas. In this regard, firstly, ISIS is front and center; secondly, military installations are in the mix; and thirdly, as always, the media sees no Islamic evil, hears no Islamic evil. Deaf, dumb and blind!
IN fact, the script is so predictable that a well-informed high schooler could write it. Be that as it may, let’s start with the first intersection: ISIS’s “inspiration” within the Islamic community in America. Western nations alike.
ISIS’s “INSPIRE” MAG.:
INHERENTLY, now that assorted jihadi tentacles – in tandem with ISIS – are busy hacking off heads, they understand they must up the ante. On the one hand, never underestimate the art of propaganda, which serves as a dual-edged sword; terrorizing westerners, as well as “inspiring” other Islamists to join their cause. Yes, even one of their slick and gory-filled magazines is called INSPIRE. It is not for nothing.
Samir Khan, a 24-year-old American known for distributing terrorist propaganda material online, was killed by a U.S. drone strike on September 30, 2011, two years after he moved to Yemen to align himself with Al Qaeda.
Federal authorities have claimed that Khan was the principal author of Inspire, Al Qaeda’s first-ever English-language magazine that provides detailed bomb-making instructions and calls on followers to “destroy” America. The graphics, design and overall packaging of Inspire resemble those on Khan’s various blogs and in Jihad Recollections, the self-described “first English Jihad magazine” in which Khan was a contributor.
The inaugural issue of Inspire was released online in July 2010 by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), Al Qaeda’s affiliate in Saudi Arabia and Yemen, where Khan has lived since October 2009. In the second issue, which was released in October 2010, Khan writes that he is “proud to be a traitor to America” and criticizes the U.S. government and its military incursions overseas. The U.S. and its allies, according to Khan, must be defeated in order to “implant Islam all over the world.” “I am acutely aware that body parts have to be torn apart, skulls have to be crushed and blood has to be spilled,” Khan writes.
In the seventh issue of Inspire, published just days before his death, Khan underscored the importance of media for the global jihadist movement, noting that “ideas are bulletproof and have an outstanding lifespan,” and that therefore “the credible ideas that we bring is what intimidates them [the West] the most.”
MILITARY BASE COMPONENT:
NOT unexpectedly, the second intersection – military bases on home soil – always present an attractive target. Significantly, a core component to the Kansas saga (demonstrated in a report below) revolves around the jihadi’s plan to infiltrate the military to wage jihad. His failure to become a full time recruit was only an act of fortuitous happenstance. In other words, he initially passed the army’s recruitment muster but was stopped short. Hmm.
SIMILARLY, readers are familiar with several acts of Islamic terror by Muslim-American army personnel, chiefly, repeated jihad at Fort Hood! Seriously, how inept are the recruiters? How low are their standards?
ANOTHER major act of jihad targeted the soldiers at Fort Hood – 5 years after Major Hassan, a “soldier for Allah” , perpetrated an Islamic terror attack – and mowed down its personnel. In no uncertain terms, said terrorist acts shine a spot light on intersecting and pernicious failures within the Pentagon. And since the Pentagon is subservient to the Commander-in-Chief, well, the buck stops at his derelict, anti-American door. Damn these leaders to hell. And back.
In this regard, it is all too convenient to point to PTSD, albeit a serious disorder which effects countless others. This illness is commonly attributed to war veterans and high risk law enforcement personnel, but they are hardly the only grouping prone to said affliction. ANY serious stress factor, including drug and alcohol addiction, can trigger it.
Be that as it may, this site’s investigative contacts are affirming:Lopez was a convert to Islam. Yet, Washington and their captured media are attempting to keep a lid on the most relevant info to explain Islamic-inspired mass killings at U.S. army bases. How dare they.
MOST coincidentally, what should rational folks attribute to the FBI’s hunt for another ! jihadi recruit at the very same time as Lopez’s terror attack: FBI, military hunt ex-Army recruit suspected of plotting ‘Ft. Hood-inspired jihad’….
CONSEQUENTLY, rational folks would internalize that allowing Muslims to serve in the U.S. military (except under very strict vetting) poses a grave risk for the nation at large, even if Islamic mouthpieces scream their heads off. Agreed?
MEDIA’S BLINDED EYES:
ALAS, due to the above and so much more, where does the “fourth estate” fit into the tragic national situation? As stated in a previous commentary:
NEVERTHELESS, it can’t be stressed enough how invested the media is with their self-inflicted omerta, re the biggest threat to western civilization bar none; Islamic-driven (Sunni/ Shia) genocidal jihad! The media is wholly, incontrovertibly, incontestably (and every other similar descriptor) complicit! After all, how many waving flags etc do they require as proof of the same?
BACK to Kansas…
A year ago, he wanted to join the U.S. Army to kill his fellow soldiers. When that didn’t work, 20-year-old John T. Booker repeatedly expressed his desire to join the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) or commit a suicide attack in the United States on the terrorist group’s behalf.
Booker, a convert to Islam who changed his name to Mohammed Abdullah Hassan, said American soldiers are enemies to Muslims, and the Quran sanctions killing enemies anywhere.
FBI agents arrested Booker Friday morning just outside Fort Riley, a military base near Manhattan, Kan. He was driving a van loaded with what he thought was 1,000 pounds of explosives. In fact, the bomb was rendered inert by FBI agents and informants. He is charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, attempting to blow up government property and providing material support to the Islamic State.
In conversations with an FBI informant, Booker repeatedly expressed his intent to kill. “I will kill any kuffar. I will follow any place … if I was with [the Islamic State] and they said look, we are going to the White House right now … I would go with them without any question,” he saidin November.
He was rejected by the Army in March 2014, after someone alerted authorities to Facebook posts extolling violent jihad and expressing his desire to kill American soldiers. “I will soon be leaving you forever so goodbye! I’m going to wage jihad and hopes that I die.” In another post the same month, he said: “Getting ready to be killed in jihad is a HUGE adrenaline rush!!! I am so nervous. NOT because I’m scared to die but I am eager to meet my lord.”
Booker told FBI agents at that time he wanted to enlist “to commit an insider attack against American soldiers like Major Nidal Hassan had done at Fort Hood, Texas.”
For reasons that aren’t clear, Booker was left alone until October, when an informant started talking with him. Booker suggested several ideas for terrorist attacks, mentioning Fort Riley as an attractive target “because the post is famous and there are a lot of soldiers stationed there.”
He also said “he wanted to see the fear in the kuffar’s eyes as he pushed the button and they ran for their lives,” the criminal complaint filed Friday said.
Last month, Booker said he wanted to emulate a suicide truck bombing by an American known as “Jihadi Joe.” Booker bought supplies to make a car-bomb from a list the informants provided. He made two martyrdom videos, including one in which he gave his bayah [pledge of allegiance] to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi and urged Muslims to support them.
The other video, recorded Wednesday, shows Booker describing his 1,000-pound ammonium nitrate bomb. “Inshallah, this will kill many kuffar [nonbelievers]. This message is to you America. You sit in your homes and you think that this war is just over in Iraq . . . we today we will bring the Islamic State straight to your doorstep. You think this is just a game … when this bomb blows up and kills as many kuffar as possible, maybe then you’ll realize it.”
MIND you, upon listening to the bizarre liveleak “news” report re the jihadi terrorists from Kansas, one could be forgiven for “reasonably” believing that Booker (and his accomplices) is any old Joe blow, or right-wing anarchist bent on revenge against the government. Specifically, pay attention to the media’s reference to the term “anyone”… mention of “a variety of reasons”… and other such obfuscation and jive talk. Yes, the word jihad was referenced but without any Islamic linkage.
MOREOVER, as expected, the appendage “mentally ill” and “bi-polar” is another handy excuse that apologists use for jihadi behavior!
CONCLUSIVELY, sentient individuals (who are not steeped in Islam) can’t help but conclude, thus, coming to the same (verifiable) denominator: factually, those who wage jihad across the globe have one component in common, that is, killing on behalf of Islam and in the name of Allah…Allahu Akbar!
ADDING jihad atop jihad, they ain’t done yet: their clarion call to wage Islamic war within America will be blasted ALL over America and here’s how:
Jameel Syed is the leader of Project Muaddhin, which will blast the Muslim call to jihad on loudspeakers across all 50 states beginning Friday. This project is meant to be a wake up call to all American infidels.
The project is not limited to major cities in the United States, but also includes sites like the Grand Canyon. This will ruin many family vacations.
The call to jihad, called Adhan, that will be played by Syed is the final sermon of the Islamic “prophet” Sallallahu ‘alyhi wa sallam.
Most Americans have never heard this sermon before. Until now, this call to jihad was largely limited to Islamic countries.
But now America will get a taste of the sweet sounds of jihad that are so well known throughout these war-torn countries.

EXPLICITLY, in the words of the Quran (Koran), the Islamic War Book, its mandates couldn’t be any clearer. And if anyone opines that said doctrine is a one-off passage, well, they should just shut their trap. Ignoramuses and dangerous dupes to boot!
