From Allen B West
I just have to ask, when was the last time anyone heard an update on the Islamic jihadist who fired point blank at a Philadelphia police officer? We shared that story here, namely the fact that the mayor of Philadelphia went to extreme lengths to convince us that Islam had nothing to do with the attack. And of course this was a complete contradiction from what the assailant had admitted from his own mouth.
Why is it that we have folks who are in such a hurry to excuse the actions of Islamic terrorist jihadists? And why is it that we need to have some clear tie or identification with a terrorist group in order for any of these attacks to be determined as such — any of you recall the Chattanooga Naval Reserve Facility jihadist attack?
However, what happens if some loon goes off and shoots anywhere near an abortion facility? Immediately Christians are castigated. And remember the abhorrent and heinous shooting at Charleston’s Emanuel AME Church killing several congregants at a Bible study meeting? The liberal progressive media was all over the issue of racial hatred, and that led to the whole Confederate flag issue in the Palmetto State. But why did President Obama so strenuously tell us back in August 2014 that ISIS wasn’t “Islamic?”
And now we have this news from California. As reported by Fox, “The California college student who stabbed four people last fall in a campus spree that ended when he was killed by campus police had ISIS propaganda on his laptop and may have been “self-radicalized,” the FBI announced [last] Thursday.
Faisal Mohammad, who carried out the attack at the University of California Merced on Nov. 4, 2015, had “pro-ISIL propaganda” on his laptop and “had visited ISIL and other extremist websites in the weeks prior to his attack,” according to the FBI’s Sacramento office.
“At the time of the stabbings, Mohammad was carrying a backpack which contained a two-page, hand-written plan detailing his intentions to include taking hostages and killing students and police officers. Investigators also found a photocopy of an ISIL flag and a list of items he thought he would need for an attack such as zip ties, glass breaker, and a knife among his belongings,” the FBI said in a statement.
During the investigation, officials did not find any evidence showing Mohammad had worked with or been directed by anyone from ISIS. They did find that he began his preparations for the attack at least one week in advance.”Every indication is that Mohammad acted on his own; however, it may never be possible to definitively determine why he chose to attack people on the UC Merced campus,” the FBI said in a statement.”
So shall we refer to this as an Islamic jihadist terror attack? Apparently the litmus test is whether or not there’s a direct correlation to receiving orders from a terrorist organization. So why did everyone scream racist and attack a Confederate flag in South Carolina unless the despicable deranged person who executed that attack was given direction and guidance from a white supremacist, or racist group?
I have no issue with the utmost condemnation of what that demon did in Charleston — but what about the other demons who walk amongst us? Where was the liberal progressive socialist outrage over the killing of five Marines and Sailors at Chattanooga? And why haven’t we seen the incessant rage and protests from the liberal left and their media accomplices regarding these stabbings at U.C. Merced? Doesn’t the left believe students need “safe spaces” from Islamic jihadists who walk upon our college campuses?
“Mohammad, whose victims all survived, left behind a rambling, two-page manifesto in which he instructed himself to “praise Allah” as he worked his way through his hit list, a photocopied ISIS flag and at least one shaken roommate who remembers him as a menacing loner, FoxNews.com reported in December.
“He was a loner and an extreme Muslim,” Ali Tarek Elshekh, Mohammad’s roommate, told Merced Sheriff’s Department Detective Jose Silva in a statement, also noting Mohammad was “way out there.” Elshekh, who is Muslim, told sheriffs that a friend of his had asked Mohammad what would happen if he touched the mat he used for praying, and got a chilling response. “I will kill you,” Mohammad calmly vowed, in what Elshekh said was not a “normal” response for a Muslim.”
So why was nothing said? Why wasn’t Faisal Mohammad reported? Could it be the exact same reason why neighbors who witnessed peculiar late-night activity at the home of Syed Farouk and Tashfeen Malik — you know, the folks who killed 14 and wounded 21 in San Bernardino. The neighbors said they didn’t want to be accused of racial profiling. And remember how the liberal media tried so hard to justify the shooting as being the result of Farouk having been made fun of — ya know, his beard and such?
It reminds me of the Nidal Hasan shooting back in December 2009 at Ft. Hood, Texas when some said Nidal Hasan suffered from “pre-post traumatic stress syndrome.” Yes, anything to excuse away the fact that his actions were those of an Islamic jihadist. And if you go back to when Hasan was assigned to Walter Reed Army Medical Center, you’ll find Hasan was proselytizing against Soldiers to whom he was supposed to be providing mental health assistance — but no one ever reported him.
So why is it that the liberal progressive media goes 24/7 on certain shootings and attacks — but others barely make a 24-hour news cycle? Why did Abu Ghraib get months of front page coverage from the New York Times, but the savage barbarism of ISIS, Boko Haram, and other Islamic jihadist groups do not?
The actions of Faisal Mohammad — glad the little jerk is dead — may never be classified as an Islamic terror attack, but we know it was. It has to be apparent to all that for the left, a political agenda is more important than our safety and security. Just as they tout “black lives matter” while blacks routinely murder blacks — the liberal progressive socialist left daily evidences its insidious hypocrisy.
