With intelligence communities across the world on high alert for possible terror attacks, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for would-be terrorists to smuggle in the necessary ingredients and equipment to make bombs and suicide vests. ISIS’ new technique as of late has been to utilize vehicles as their tool for terrorism, where they will simply plow into unassuming crowds, massacring as many people as possible with several tons of steel. Now Washington D.C. has been thrown into chaos, after a driver plowed into a crowd late last night. As arrests have been made and investigations ensued, terrorism has still yet to be ruled out, as we anxiously wait to see if ISIS is now here on our shores.
Late last night, two men in Washington D.C. drove through a crowd at the Adams Morgan nightclub area of NW, Washington, hitting two police officers and a transit employee. Now many are beginning to wonder if this could possibly be a terror attack like we’ve seen ravaging Europe in recent months.

A woman claiming to be a witness wrote on Facebook, “While out for ice cream with friends, right in front of us, a guy in that truck drove through a crowd of people, walking, on bikes, and even cops and ended up crashing into a garabage [sic] truck.”

Could this possibly be an ISIS-inspired attack? We will have to wait and see what comes of the investigation. Chillingly, we are only into the first half of Ramadan, and already Muslims around the world have been going nuts with terror attacks, as they believe that they are granted more “rewards” in paradise from Allah if they kill infidels during their “holy month.”
Islam expert and political pundit Robert Spencer explained thoroughly in a recent article just exactly what the month of Ramadan means for Muslims, and why we should be extremely vigilant during this time as a way to keep our families and communities safe for what these Islamists have planned:
Ramadan is upon us, and the Islamic State has called upon Muslims to show their piety during this month by carrying out jihad attacks in the U.S., Europe and Russia. In a new video, Muslims are told to “wait and hide for them,” that is, non-Muslims, “in houses, corners, roads,” and kill them. This is reminiscent of the Qur’an’s exhortation to “kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush” (9:5), and constitutes yet another reminder that Ramadan is quintessentially the month of jihad.
A jihad group explained it back in 2012: “The month of Ramadan is a month of holy war and death for Allah. It is a month for fighting the enemies of Allah and God’s messenger, the Jews and their American facilitators.” Referring to a jihad attack that happened at that time, the message continued: “One of our groups aided by Allah managed to bomb a bus full of Jewish tourists, plunderers of holy lands, after careful tracking. The holy war is not confined to a particular arena and we shall fight the Jews and the Americans until they leave the land of Islam.
During Ramadan, Muslims are exhorted to renew and deepen their devotion to Allah. Hence it is a time when they’re supposed to grow more generous and kind toward their fellow Muslims. However, the Qur’an says: “Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are severe against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves” (48:29). If the Ramadan imperative is to become more devout, the Muslim who applies himself diligently to the Ramadan observance will simultaneously become more both merciful to his fellow Muslims and more severe against the unbelievers.
Any liberal who truly believes that Ramadan consists of Muslims sitting around on prayer mats while chanting “peaceful” verses of the Quran is perhaps much more stupid than we ever gave them credit for. Murdering infidels doesn’t at all conflict with the spirit of Ramadan, but rather embodies it. We’ll have to see if this incident is in fact another act of terrorism.
