WHILE it is always the case that westerners, Americans alike, sit up and take notice when body parts litter the streets after a jihadi attack, the fact is that said reaction is, for the most part, too little, too late. Ya think?
SIMPLY put, any “outrage” after the fact must be considered as reactive as opposed to proactive. It may – or may not even – elicit a defensive response. Regardless, what is truly required in order to beat militant Islamic jihadists are offensive, aka pre-emptive, tactics. The point being, whereas Allah’s Muslim Terrorists expend an inordinate amount of time, effort, manpower, and resources to plot offensive jihad – whether executed in this or that location makes no diff – the bottom line is this: most Americans are doing next to nothing to counterattack on any level, other than to sputter and stutter indignation. As to Europe’s non-Muslims, let’s say that decades of seeing and hearing no Islamic evil has turned the continent into an absolute arm, an outpost, of Arabia.
AND for those who would rather pooh, pooh and tsk, tsk towards this direction, instead of doing what must be done, that’s your call. Your funeral. But for the rest, here’s the deal:
- While most are waiting for others to take the lead, sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option. Therefore, once again, mosques must be the central focus, and this is irrespective of their protected status as “houses of worship.” Indeed, they are the barracks within.
- Incontestably, it is no longer tenable for Americans, westerners, to operate as if Islam is a religion, never mind one which deserves special status. Rather, it must be viewed as a political structure which aims to subdue all of humanity under its Shariah Law umbrella.
SO in light of the above, the fact that ISIS is ramping up its “activities” in America should be expected, that is, if ones head is not in the clouds! Mind you, it is not as if this investigative journalist hasn’t highlighted said infiltration and penetration, again and again. Not only that, DHS lends them cover!
Erick Jamal Hendricks, from North Carolina, was arrested on August 4th, 2016 on charges of attempting to recruit people for terrorist attacks in the U.S. in support of the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL). One of Hendricks’ alleged contacts was a gunman in the 2015 thwarted attack on an exhibition of Mohammed caricatures in Texas.
The Justice Department says Hendricks, who was caught by an undercover FBI informant, was using social media to recruit people. He also allegedly mentioned to a prospective recruit a desire to create a sleeper cell for later attacks in the U.S.
Nicholas Young, a DC Metro cop since 2003, was arrested on August 3rd, 2016 for supplying materials to ISIS. Young, who was on the FBI’s radar since 2010, allegedly met several times with Amine El Khalifi before Khalifi was arrested in 2012 for plotting to carry out a suicide bombing at the U.S. Capitol building.
Later, in 2014, Young began meeting with an informant who convinced Young to travel overseas to join ISIS in Syria, according to the FBI. The FBI was able to begin communicating directly with Young electronically, posing as the informant after Young believed the informant had made it to Syria.
The core charge of material support came from Young allegedly buying gift cards to support ISIS through mobile messaging accounts. He sent the gift card codes to the informant in late July.
Gregory Hubbard, Darren Jackson, and Dayne Christian, all from Florida, were arrested on July 22nd, 2016 charges of conspiring and attempting to provide material support and resources to ISIS. According to the complaint, Hubbard first told the FBI informant he was considering joining ISIS on April 11th, 2015.
The two met regularly over the course of the next few months discussing recent terrorist attacks and listening to sermons by Anwar al-Awlaki. Jackson and Christian soon joined to provide guns, ammunition and training as Hubbard prepared to join ISIS. With help from the FBI informant, Hubbard planned his travel to Syria and was arrested after checking in to his flight from Miami. Jackson and Christian were arrested elsewhere.
Akram Musleh, 18, from Indiana on federal terrorism charges on June 21st, 2016. Court documents show Musleh, a high school student, had made several unsuccessful attempts to join ISIS in Syria. He is known to have done online research regarding the manufacturing of explosives in May of 2016. arrested
Musleh, like many ISIS recruits, used social media to express his affiliation with ISIS. Social media is also the medium through which the FBI initiated and continued contact with Musleh, during which potential routes to ISIS were discussed and propaganda shared.
New York City
Sajmir Alimehmeti a 22-year old from New York City was arrested on May 24th, 2016 for allegedly supporting ISIS. According to a criminal complaint filed by the Department of Justice, Alimehmeti tried to join ISIS twice back in 2014, but both times he was stopped.
What ended up getting Alimehmeti arrested, however, was his trying to help someone whom he believed was an ISIS recruit get to Syria. This supposed recruit was actually an undercover federal agent. Like many other Americans who have been arrested for attempting to join and assist ISIS, Alimehmeti was caught by a federal sting operation.
BUT if the above is not enough to convince of the precipitous and awaiting dangers, let’s see if the following overt threats make a dent – or not. Emboldened.
Father Josiah Trenham described the threats on his Orthodox Church in California.
As Father Josiah Trenham prepared to read the Gospel, several parishioners discreetly scooped up their babies, retreated up the aisles of St. Andrew Orthodox Church and out into the spring air, so as not to allow the crying of little ones to disturb the divine liturgy.
The time-honored tradition was shattered when a car passed by the Riverside, Calif., church, slowing down as the front passenger leaned out of his window and bellowed menacingly through a bullhorn, according to witnesses.
“Allahu Akbar!” the unidentified man repeated several times as the unnerved parents drew their infants close and exchanged worried glances.
Witnesses were able to give Riverside police a description of the green Honda Civic, but not of the three occupants. Some told police they believed one or more of the men may have been taking photographs, according to Officer Ryan Railsback. Although Trenham insisted multiple congregants heard the Arabic phrase, Railsback noted no mention of it was in the police report.
Whatever the case, no law was broken – even if an unmistakable message was sent and received.
“Be calm and to keep a special vigilance over the property and our children while we are at church,” Trenham wrote in an email to parishioners in which he recounted the disturbing event. “Pray that these provocative young men might repent of their intimidation and be saved.”
Trenham told FoxNews.com last week the situation remains “tense and tenuous,” and said the church now has security officers on hand for all regular services.
“It is a deep sorrow to live this way in the ‘new America,’” he said.
NOW, it is not as if Americans haven’t been alerted via this site and a few others. In fact, ISIS and its Mexican linkage, cartel-like, has been duly explored. Indeed, in August 2015, a follow-on report detailed: ISIS is testing U.S. defenses inside America, and Mexico is a major springboard. Hmm.
ALAS, fast forward to one year later, and see what’s shaking out.
ISIS operative Shaykh Mahmood Omar Khabir has reportedly been training militants near the US border near Ciudad Juarez for the past year.
Khabir actually brags in an Italian newspaper article published last week that the border region is so open that he “could get in with a handful of men, and kill thousands of people in Texas or in Arizona in the space of a few hours.”
An ISIS operative arrested and criminally charged in Ohio this month has confirmed that the terrorist group has cells in Mexico, according to federal authorities. Judicial Watch has reported this for years, documenting it in a series of articles as part of an ongoing investigation on the connection between drug cartels, corruption and terrorism on the southern border. In fact, last spring Judicial Watch broke a story about an ISIS camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.
Though a number of high-level law enforcement, intelligence and military sources on both sides of the border have provided Judicial Watch with evidence that Islamic terrorist cells are operating in Mexico, the Obama administration has publicly denied it, both to Judicial Watch and in mainstream media outlets. Now we have a terrorism suspect in custody proudly affirming it. His name is Erick Jamal Hendricks and the U.S. has charged him with conspiring to provide ISIS and ISIL material support. Hendricks created a sleeper cell with at least ten members, according to the Department of Justice (DOJ), and claims that some of his jihadist “brothers” are just south of the U.S. border in Mexico. The 35-year-old lived for a short time in Charlotte, North Carolina and was arrested and charged in Ohio last week. Hendricks tried to “recruit people to train together and conduct terrorist attacks in the United States,” according to the government’s criminal complaint.
Hendricks contacted another ISIS operative, referred to as “CW-1”, who was arrested last summer, about working with him and several other terrorists to carry out attacks. “Hendricks allegedly told CW-1 that he ‘needed people’ and wanted to meet in person; that there were several ‘brothers’ located in Texas and Mexico; that he was attempting to ‘get brothers to meet face to face;’ and that he wanted ‘to get brothers to train together,’” according to a DOJ announcement. Hendricks and his sleeper cell targeted U.S. military members and a woman who organized a “Draw Muhammad” cartoon contest in Garland, Texas last May. Two men in body armor with assault rifles tried to carry out an attack in the Dallas suburb building where the event took place but were shot dead by police. The FBI says Hendricks was connected with the terrorism-related shooting. Federal prosecutors reveal that Hendricks vetted CW-1 by testing his religious knowledge and commitment to jihad, to die as a martyr and his desire to enter Jannah (paradise), the feds say.
FALLING on deaf ears.
EVEN so, while some will inquire: what can the average “Joe or Jane” do that law enforcement can’t? In response, a whole damn lot. This is the case from several vantage points.
- Aside from certain instances where active plots are in advanced stages and law enforcement is forced to step in, over the last eight years, more often than not, the Feds (locals alike) have been ordered via DHS to stand down! Yup, you read it right.
- And if an exhibit (out of a growing list) should give the readers pause, as to the hands-off policy of the Feds and its apparatus, well, this one must serve as an exemplar: Islamic money/gold laundering in Massachusetts finances jihad, yet, Feds ignore evidence!
- Resultant, many plots are brewing right under their noses, yet nothing is done. Nothing. But this is where pre-emptive action is mandatory to save the nation, be it individually, community-wide, state-wide, or nation-wide. As such, some related tips can be found throughout this site, but the following should serve as a template. Its basis can be extrapolated and expounded upon wherever needed: Islam’s invaders have been warned that they are not welcome in Wyoming, and some lessons are worth learning. Learn them well.
DESPITE any and all nonsense that the proper agencies, the government, if you will, is taking care of business, rest assured, this is more than a fool’s errand. Effectively, a recipe for personal and national disaster.
CONSEQUENTIALLY, is entrusting one’s fate to the “powers that be” a reasonable course of action, let alone viable? Conversely, isn’t it past time to think outside the box, thus, leading to the conclusion: shutting down their epicenters for jihad is more than judicious, and a starting point to boot?
YES, pre-emptive, offensive, strategies are nation-saving measures!
