Refusing to acknowledge the 2009 Ft. Hood Islamic terrorist attack, the attempted Islamic Time Square attack, the Benghazi Islamic terrorist attack, the recent April 2013 Islamic terrorist attack in Boston and many more, Barack Obama claimed in a press conference Thursday that there have been ‘no large-scale attacks’ on America since 9/11.
John Mueller, the chair of National Security Studies at Ohio State’s Mershon Center for International Security Studies, disagrees with Obama and has collected a list of 52 such plans since 9/11, as chronicled in Mueller’s book, Terrorism Since 9/11: The American Cases.
Despite the overwhelming facts, Obama remains steadfast in his position that if only America would embrace the Muslim community all would be well with the world.
“The best way to prevent violent extremism is to work with the Muslim American community — which has consistently rejected terrorism — to identify signs of radicalization and partner with law enforcement when an individual is drifting towards violence,” Obama said. “And these partnerships can only work when we recognize that Muslims are a fundamental part of the American family.”
(Get it? It’s our fault for not integrating better with them, and not their fault for repeatedly attacking us…)
Of course, Muslim terrorists worldwide disagree with and are laughing at Obama’s ignorant and very dangerous statement, but that doesn’t seem to matter to the leader of the Free World.
Fearless American warrior Pamela Geller also differs with Obama’s claims, citing the hundreds of thwarted and in some cases successful acts of jihad here in the U.S. Here are a few:
BROOKLYN BRIDGE Iyman Faris, a U.S.-based, al Qaeda operative, planned to cut the bridge’s support cables but was deterred, in part, by the NYPD’s 24-hour coverage of the bridge. Faris sent al Qaeda leaders a coded message that, “the weather is too hot,” indicating he could not carry out the mission. He was arrested in 2003, pleaded guilty and sentenced to federal prison.
SUBWAY CYANIDE – A plot to disperse cyanide gas in the subway system was called off at the last minute by Iyman Zawahiri for what he said was “something bigger.”
NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE & CITIGROUP HEADQUARTERS – Al Qaeda plot to use vehicles to bomb the New York Stock Exchange, Citibank, and other financial institutions. NYPD tactical teams were deployed to high-threat locations, and vehicle inspections were increased in response. Dhiren Barot/Issa al-Hindi, an associate of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, pleaded guilty in 2006.
GARMENT DISTRICT PLOT The NYPD and FBI arrested Uzair Paracha for material support of terrorism in New York based on intelligence developed overseas. Paracha is reported to have discussed with top al Qaeda leaders the prospect of smuggling weapons and explosives _ possibly even a nuclear device_into Manhattan’s Garment District through his father’s import-export business.
HERALD SQUARE SUBWAY STATION An NYPD undercover officer helped disrupt a 2004 plot to bomb the Herald Square subway station by lone-wolf admirers of Al Qaeda. Shahawar Matin Siraj and James Elshafay conspired to blow up the 34th Street subway station, including surveilling the subway station, choosing the location for their bombs, and diagramming entrances and exits.
PATH TRAIN and WTC RETAINING WALL A multi-agency investigation disrupted a plot to attack NYC’s underground transit link with New Jersey in 2006. Law enforcement monitoring international chat rooms discovered suspects’ plan to destroy a PATH train tunnel and the retaining wall at Ground Zero, to flood the New York Financial District. The main operative was taken into custody in Lebanon and admitted to plotting the attack.
JFK AIRPORT/BUCKEYE PIPELINE – Al Qaeda sympathizers plotted to bomb the fuel tanks and pipeline at John F. Kennedy Airport, through which jet fuel is transported from New Jersey through Staten Island, Brooklyn, and Queens. Four suspects were arrested in New York and Trinidad in 2007; three were later sentenced to life in prison.
TRANSATLANTIC PLOT _ A British-based plot to destroy seven commercial aircraft over the Atlantic Ocean or fly one or more of them into East Coast targets including New York City resulted in multiple arrests in London.
LONG ISLAND RAILROAD – A plot to bomb a Manhattan-bound LIRR commuter train was discussed at the highest levels of al Qaeda operational leadership. See Bryant Neal Vinas, of Long Island.
BRONX SYNAGOGUES _ Disrupted in May 2009, the Riverdale plot targeted two Jewish centers_a synagogue and a Jewish community center_in the Bronx, and Stewart Air Base in Newburgh, NY. The NYPD and FBI arrested four men who were convicted in 2010.
NYC SUBWAY & TRANSIT HUBS – In September 2009, Najibullah Zazi and others planned a series of coordinated suicide bombings of NYC subway transit hubs at rush hour.
TIMES SQUARE Faisal Shahzad attempted on May 1, 2010 to detonate a bomb inside an SUV parked in Times Square on a busy Saturday night.
MANHATTAN SYNAGOGUE – The NYPD disrupted a plot by two Queens men, Ahmed Ferhani and Mohamed Mamdouh, to bomb a synagogue in Manhattan in May 2011.
JOSE PIMENTEL – Muslim convert Jose Pimentel was arrested in November 2011 in Manhattan as he constructed bombs and plotted to killer soldiers returning home to New York from Afghanistan and Iraq. He had followed instructions in an article from Al Qaeda’s English-language magazine “Inspire” on “How to Build a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom.”
JESSE MORTON; REVOLUTION MUSLIM: The case of Jesse Morton, a New York City-based Muslim convert, resulted from NYPD monitoring, combined with the investigative and prosecutorial expertise of the FBI and the U.S. Attorney for Eastern District of Virginia. Morton was apprehended in Morocco and pleaded guilty in Feb. 2012 to soliciting murder and encouraging violence via the Internet; Morton was sentenced in June to 138 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release, for using his position as a leader of the “Revolution Muslim” organization’s internet sites to conspire to solicit murder and encourage violent extremism. His partner Zachary Chesser was sentenced for providing material support to al Shabaab, communicating threats and soliciting acts of extremism, including against the creators of South Park. Chesser and Morton were associates of Mohamed Alessa and Carlos Almonte, two New Jersey men who pleaded guilty in March 2011 to conspiring to murder individuals overseas on behalf of a foreign terrorist group.
Regarding Obama’s strange statement that jihadists “are lying” when they quote Quran chapter and verse and wage war in the name of Islam, Geller says, “No, it is Obama who is lying about the ideology. And while we may not be at war with Islam, clearly there is a significant part of Islam that is at war with us.”
While Mr. Obama’s whitewashed romance with Islam continues, battles rage throughout the world as jihadists try to take over every country they are able to infiltrate–because that is what the Quran commands them to do. Thanks in large part to Pamela Geller’s Atlas Shrugs, here are just a few of the countries that are currently struggling with the ever-spreading cancer that is Sharia.
This statement by Pamela Geller sums up the problems in Afghanistan perfectly:
This is the human cost of Obama’s fantasist delusion. The close contact — “working side by side with Afghan troops as advisers, mentors and trainers” — is a key part of the U.S. strategy, and it is homicidal. It’s like shooting fish in a barrel.
Our troops are being sacrificed to the politically correct refusal to state the truth about Islam. Our troops are being disarmed literally and figuratively. They do not understand the jihadic doctrine. They have no way of telling the jihadists from people on our side.
Our troops are disarmed around their Afghan “allies” — this policy based on the fantasies about Islam that are all-pervasive in Washington. We are in Afghanistan with no plan for victory, no definition of what victory would look like, and no clear purpose.
Sharia is established in Afghanistan as the law of the land — no free speech, death for apostasy, hatred of infidels — so the seeds for another 911 are there even as we remain there. Obama has given in to the Taliban — Biden said they weren’t the enemy, and Obama has told Karzai to negotiate with them. Karzai has said that Mullah Omar can run for president, so what’s the point of the last 10 years?
Bring. our. troops. home. The war is here.
Australia has been trying to integrate with Muslims for many years, bending over backwards to accommodate Sharia law without allowing it to completely take over their court systems. Yet according to News.com.au, a Muslim man was given special treatment after beating his sister-in-law after she took his wife to the beach without his permission:
Ismail Belghar is believed to be the first Muslim in Australia to be granted a judge-only trial on the grounds that a jury may be biased because of his religious beliefs. The decision in the New South Wales District Court can be revealed after Belghar, 36, yesterday pleaded guilty to detaining and assaulting his sister-in-law after she “dared” to take his wife to the beach without his permission. The court heard, because of his religious beliefs and because he thought he had absolute authority over her, Belghar felt it “abhorrent” that his wife, Hanife Kokden, had been to the beach where she “displayed her body”….
Also in addition to violent Muslim-led riots in Sydney last year, four Muslims were recently found guilty for “Sharia whipping” a man who drank alcohol. And last year a fatwa was issued against Christmas, warning followers it is a ”sin” to even wish people a Merry Christmas…
Since taking over Egypt—largely because of Barack Obama—the Muslim Brotherhood has been slaughtering Coptic Christians on a daily basis.
From Atlas Shrugs:
Christians in Egypt after Mubarak are a persecuted, tormented minority. Daily reports here and at Jihadwatch, The Religion of Peace, The Counter Jihad report on and document the creed apartheid, beatings, rapes and kidnapping of Christians by Muslims. Christian areas are terrorized, houses and churches set ablaze.
And from Robert Spencer’s Jihad Watch:
A video recording from a recent…sermon in Egypt, where the imam swears to Allah several times that the flag of Islam will be raised above the White House of America, recently appeared on the Arabic Internet. According to the imam preaching, all Muslims need do is be patient and continue working towards this goal.
In the name of “tolerance” and “acceptance”, France is encountering constant problems with Muslims doing what they do best—trying to take over and enforce Sharia as the rule of law.
Pamela Geller: “First they came for the Jews, France dismissed it as ‘because of the Middle East.’ Then they came for the gays; France dismissed it as ‘isolated incidents.’ Now they are attacking symbols of Christianity, vandalizing churches, disrupting services and finally attacking priests…And yet France keeps importing these supremacist killers.”
In April, three people were killed in the south of France when an “Al Qaeda gunman” opened fire apparently at random in the southern town of Istres.
“Here’s your motive, geniuses”, Pamela Geller writes. “Muhammad said that ‘the last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him’ (Sahih Muslim 6985).”
This year, a Muslim jihadist was jailed for plotting to blow up an Italian synagogue. Another man slit his wife’s throat for “refusing to wear her veil”—but not before slitting the throats of their two children first, to further punish her…
The streets of Stockholm have been raging all week as Muslims try to show their strength and hopes of dominating Sweden.
“The problem is not from the Swedish government or from the Swedish people,” the editor in chief of Dispatch International said. “The last 20 years or so, we have seen so many immigrants coming to Sweden that really don’t like Sweden. They do not want to integrate, they do not want to live in [Swedish] society: Working, paying taxes and so on.”
In a very familiar statement, Sweden is having problems with Muslim immigrants coming to their country and then taking advantage of their generosity.
“The people come here now because they know that Sweden will give them money for nothing. They don’t have to work, they don’t have to pay taxes – they can just stay here and get a lot of money. That is really a problem,” the editor said.
“Young Muslims who enjoy tolerance, social institutions and welfare while living in Sweden…refuse to integrate”, parliamentary leader Gerolf Annemans stated. “They [Muslim youths] have always sought excuse to show that they are not agreeing with the basic values of Western society,” Annemans said, pointing to the Boston Marathon bombing in the US the beheading of a British soldier in the UK.
“It’s always the same problem. There is a massive refusal by Muslim youngsters of the basics of Western society… and they take any excuse whatsoever to show that with violence – that is where the problem is,” he said.
Many in Sweden acknowledge the fact that Muslims in their country seem to be trying to gain footing as leaders in the Swedish community in order to possibly introduce Sharia law into their government. They are also admitting that the reports that multiculturalism was a success in Sweden aren’t necessarily so, saying it was a “fiction” that “never succeeded”.
The Muslim men who hacked to death an off-duty British soldier have the enthusiastic support of an Islamic cleric who taught one of the two men, praising the attack for its “courage” and said Muslims would see it as a strike on a military target.
“When I saw that, honestly I was very surprised – standing firm, courageous, brave. Not running away. Rather, he said why he carried (it out) and he wanted the whole world to hear it.”
This could go on and on but I highly recommend you check out the list on Atlas Shrugs (located on the right side) where you will see a comprehensive list of many countries currently embattling Islam.
But let’s get back to America…
On Thursday Obama stated:
“Today, Osama bin Laden is dead, and so are most of his top lieutenants. There have been no large-scale attacks on the United States, and our homeland is more secure. Today, the core of al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan is on a path to defeat. Their remaining operatives spend more time thinking about their own safety than plotting against us. They did not direct the attacks in Benghazi or Boston. They have not carried out a successful attack on our homeland since 9/11.”
So there now–don’t YOU feel more secure, knowing the president of the United States is completely confident that Islam is no longer a threat and that he has singlehandedly defeated al Qaeda?
