WHILE many will breathe a sign of relief when they hear about this and that arrest of a particular jihadi in America, the professional assessment at this site is quite the opposite. While it is initially comforting that one Islamist is off the streets – for now – in the scope of things it means nothing. The fact of the matter is that said arrest should be considered as less than a drop in the bucket…a needle in a (burning) haystack…
NOT only that, like within a crap shoot, Florida’s terrorist happened to be caught via his visible support for ISIS on Facebook. On the other hand, recall the actionable intel given to the same FEDS – well in advance of the Islamic terror onslaught, in April 2013, at the Boston Marathon – nonetheless, they failed to round up the subjects. How could this be?
“However, of all the issues on which he’s battled with Holder, Rep. Gohmert said one stands out from all the others.
“One that is very troubling to me is his lack of investigation and enforcement of the laws of the land as it pertains to radical Islam,” he said, asserting, among other things, that the April 2013 Boston Marathon bombing could and should have been prevented.
“The FBI under his watch got a heads-up from Russia that (bomber Tamerlan) Tsarnaev had been radicalized. As best I can tell, they didn’t do anything but talk to Tsarnaev and talk to his mom and said, ‘Well, they say he’s not radical so we’re OK.’ If Holder’s department had done a proper job, the Boston bombings would not have had to have occurred,” said Gohmert.
CONCOMITANTLY, what about this month’s ‘sudden jihad’ in Tennessee, one which could have been prevented on a multiplicity of fronts? In other words, the slaughtering of 4 Marines and 1 Navy-man could have been spared, if the monitoring of social media was not a crap shoot, but a disciplined effort. After all, Chatanooga’s Islamic barbarian and ISIS devotee posted his intentions all over social media, even within a few short hours before he attacked!
IT gets worse. Have they learned nothing, especially after the terror attack at Fort Hood in 2009 which left 14 dead ? Still, they refuse to allow military personnel to be armed! What the hell is wrong with leaders who have sworn to protect the homeland from enemies near and far? Resultant, how safe should average citizens feel when patriots are warned: don’t dare to protect the recruiting stations! Sitting ducks.
IN any case, before a synopsis is given about the Florida arrest, know that Florida – S. Florida in particular – is CRAWLING with Islamic terrorists (a mirror image to cities across America). Said overview would require a booklet of its own.
HOWEVER, the following should suffice:
IF anyone can be considered Exhibit Number One for the entrenchment of Islamic jihad in Florida, it is former University of South Florida professor Sami Al-Arian. Although deported to Turkey on Feb. 4, 2015 – but only after 40 years of living in America…born in Kuwait but a self professed ‘Palestinian’…never mind the cognitive dissonance of said proclamation – he is the quintessential terrorist-in-a-suit.
EFFECTIVELY, his public persona is of a soft-spoken, nerdy computer prof., yet, in reality, he is the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia’s front-arm for Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) in America! This is a fact.
“Report: Al-Arian to be Deported Wednesday,” IPT News, February 3, 2015:
Sami Al-Arian, a member of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ)’s governing board during the 1990s, will be deported from the United States Wednesday, a Tampa radio station reports.
WUSF, a public radio affiliate at the university where Al-Arian worked as a tenured computer science professor, cites Al-Arian associates who say he is headed to Turkey.
Al-Arian agreed to leave the country as a condition of his 2006 plea agreement for conspiring to provide goods or services to the PIJ, which President Clinton first named as a terrorist organization in a 1995 executive order.
The deportation ends a 20-year saga for Al-Arian, who was first exposed as a PIJ supporter in the Polk Award winning documentary “Jihad in America” produced by IPT founder and Executive Director Steven Emerson.
While a University of South Florida professor, Al-Arian created a charity and a think tank that operated nearby. The think tank, called the World and Islam Studies Enterprise (WISE), provided cover and refuge in Tampa to Ramadan Shallah (as Ramadan Abdullah), who emerged in Syria as the PIJ secretary general in 1995. Shallah remains in that position today.
Like Al-Arian, Shallah served on the PIJ Shura Council – essentially its board of directors – during his time in the United States. Al-Arian also helped arrange U.S. visas for two other Shura Council members – Mazen al-Najjar and Basheer Nafi – both were deported.
The charity, the Islamic Committee for Palestine (ICP), hosted annual conferences and other events from 1988-92 that featured prominent figures from PIJ and other radical groups. The PIJ’s spiritual leader, Abdelaziz Odeh, was a staple at these events. At this 1991 event in Cleveland, Al-Arian sits passively as the ICP is described as the PIJ “active arm” in America. Donations for the jihad can be sent to the ICP.
Four years later, in the wake of a double-suicide bombing that killed 21 people in Israel, Al-Arian wrote to a Kuwaiti associate soliciting money for the PIJ. Federal investigators found a copy of the letter in Al-Arian’s home during a 1995 federal raid. Al-Arian claimed he never sent the hand-written solicitation, in which he urges his acquaintance “to try to extend true support of the jihad effort in Palestine so that operations such as these can continue.”
But it was only after he was under federal investigation for terror support that Al-Arian developed real political clout. Casting himself as the victim of government overreach, he made contacts on Capitol Hill and was considered someone who might help steer Muslim voters toward political candidates, including George W. Bush during the 2000 presidential campaign.
HMMM…one of these days some tidbits, yet to be revealed, will shed more disinfectant towards the ‘rumpled’ prof and his PIJ terror mission within America. Alas, certain ‘permission’ has to be granted to do so.
IN any case, back to the jihadi arrested in – of all places – S. Florida, a veritable nest of terrorists!
A Florida man described by the FBI as an Islamic State sympathizer who hoped to mount attacks on U.S. soil was charged Tuesday with plotting to detonate a nail-filled backpack bomb on a Florida beach.
A criminal complaint unsealed Tuesday charges 23-year-old Harlem Suarez of Key West with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction in the U.S. Authorities say Suarez came to the FBI’s attention through his Facebook posts praising the Islamic State group and containing extremist rhetoric.
In April, Suarez allegedly posted, “Be a warrior, learn how to cut your enemies head and then burn down the body learn how to be the new future of the world Caliphate” – a reference the Islamic State goal of building a regional fundamentalist entity.
The FBI says he later added a request “from any brother. How to make a bomb send me a video or something, what do I need to make it.” Suarez made his first court appearance Tuesday in Miami and was being held without bail. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had a lawyer.
The complaint says Suarez told an FBI informant he wanted to make a timer bomb, bury it on a Key West beach and detonate it remotely. Suarez was arrested Monday after taking possession of an inert explosive device provided by an FBI informant.
Suarez had given the informant some bomb supplies, including two boxes of galvanized nails, the backpack and a cellphone to be used as a detonator, according to the complaint.
“I can go to the beach at the night time, put the thing in the sand, cover it up, so the next day I just call and the thing is gonna, is gonna make, a real hard noise from nowhere,” Suarez told an FBI source in a recorded call, according to the complaint.
Suarez was being monitored for months by U.S. authorities and never made an actual explosive, and there was no indication in the FBI complaint that he had contact with any Islamic State militants overseas. Still, Miami’s FBI special agent in charge, George Piro, said the alleged threats had to be taken seriously.
“There is no room for failure when it comes to investigating the potential use of a weapon of mass destruction,” Piro said.
Among other things, the FBI says Suarez also sought to make an Islamic State recruitment video using a script he wrote himself. It eventually was made under FBI surveillance at a motel in Homestead, according to the complaint, with Suarez dressed in a black tactical vest, black shirt, mask and yellow-and-black scarf.
“American soil is the past, we will destroy America and divide it in two, we will rais(e) our black flag on top of your white house and any president on duty (cut head),” Suarez says in a script for the video.
The FBI says Suarez also ordered an AK-47 assault rifle on the Internet and intended to have it delivered to a Key West pawn shop. Although he could legally purchase the weapon, the FBI says, Suarez incorrectly filled out paperwork and it was returned to the seller.
Several dozen people have been charged in the U.S. with attempting to fight alongside the Islamic State and other militants or with lending them material support.
MOST significantly, if the above barely registers in ones mental arena, in setting the stage for the physical demise of America – from a bastion of freedom of liberty – well, little will convince. Go back to sleep. Again, relying on the FBI to save the nation is whistling past the graveyard.
MOST resolutely, this investigative journalist also understands what is required to take back America, in order to prevent its demise. Intrinsically, a ‘national house cleaning’ is the only option, and this will (one way or another) necessitate ridding the nation of Islam’s barracks; its mosques.
CONSEQUENTIALLY, it will require fighting on multiple fronts, and the following is not necessarily listed in order of importance:
1 – the anti-American leadership
2 – radical leftists
3 – Islam’s soldiers
THE open question is: with many millions of well-armed patriots on tap to take back the country, will the military (having taken an oath to protect the nation from enemies near and far) turn against illegal orders given by an anti-American regime, not if, but when push comes to shove?
ONE way or another a civil war is coming, but how brutal it will be will depend upon unknown factors.
