After an event such as a terrorist attack, many people ask “why?” We want to know what could possibly inspire a person to try and hurt so many innocents that have done nothing to the perpetrator. Of course in the case of Islamic terrorists, the answer lies in the religion that they adhere to that requires they shed the blood of non-believers (infidels) if they want to achieve their demented version of happily ever after.
The media push to accept Islam as a “religion of peace” is ludicrous to those who understand what the religion teaches, but still, that propaganda has made some headway. President Trump, however, isn’t buying it and has taken major steps to keep Americans safe with things like the travel ban from major Muslim nations.
President Trump’s travel ban, among other things, have royally ticked off the politically correct, because it flies in the face of their plan to make sure that the world accepts Islam with open arms, despite the centuries of bloodshed that it brings with it. The liberal PC cause suffered a major hit on Monday when one ISIS sympathizer tried to take out innocent Americans in what ended up being a flopped suicide bombing. Daily Mail reports the one thing that set the bomber off and pushed him over the edge; seeing Christmas posters:
“The taxi driver behind the failed terror attack in a New York City told investigators he meant to detonate his homemade pipe bomb in the busy subway station after seeing the walls festooned with Christmas posters – in revenge for violence against Muslims all over the world.
While initial reports suggested the crude pipe bomb, made from a pipe, a 9-volt battery, match heads, sugar, Christmas tree lights and screws, had detonated prematurely, suspect Akayed Ullah, 27, insisted he set off the bomb deliberately.
The bombing attack at the Port Authority Bus Station subway station comes just days after Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, sparking violence between Israelis and Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.”
Ironic, isn’t it, that the same bomber who was triggered by a Christmas poster also used Christmas lights to make his little homemade terror device. This is where we should hear liberals who support gun control crying about outlawing Christmas posters and lights, because, after all, they were the cause of a terror attack, right?
As terrible as the bombers reasons are, it’s possibly even worse that he is still clinging to his religion, even while in custody, and that it’s being allowed. The bomber, Ullah, is apparently still making everything stop so that he can pray to the same god who he believes instructed him to kill us.
“Ullah, who was allowed to stop and pray multiple times during his interrogation, was taken to Bellevue Hospital to be treated for serious burns and lacerations to his abdomen and hands but is expected to survive. At the hospital, the Brooklyn resident told investigators that he was inspired to carry out the attack by the recent flare-up between Israelis and Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
He acknowledges he purposely set it off then and there,’ a senior law enforcement official told the New York Post.”
The attack came days after Ullah’s Brooklyn neighbors say they heard a huge row coming from his home, reporting yelling and screaming over the past two nights. His parents have since released a statement saying they are ‘outraged’ by the allegations, and the treatment of their family since the terror attack.
In the end, Ullah was the only one seriously injured by the explosive (three others reported to hospitals for ringing in the ears and headaches).”
One last point worth noting about the difference between the religion that Ullah ascribes to, and the one that has influenced American culture can be seen in the way that this attack was responded to by New York’s finest. The human reaction to an explosion is usually to run away and get to safety because self-preservation is built in. However, when this attack was taking place, not only did the first brave few on the scene act with courage, they also treated Ullah with a level of respect that comes with a system of law that preserves life first, and holds someone accountable for their crimes later:
“Hero Port Authority Police Officers Sean Gallagher 26, a former Marine, Anthony Manfredini, 28, a former Marine bomb tech, Drew Preston, 36, a former Army soldier with three combat tours, and Jack Collins 45, an attorney, have been identified as the cops who took Ullah into custody.
It was Officer Manferdini who spotted people running out of the passageway and he was swiftly joined by his colleagues as they ran towards the explosion and witnessed Ullah, crumpled on the floor, trying to get to his cellphone. Many improvised explosive devices often use cellphones as the detonator, so he may have been trying to set off the second explosive that was found on his body.
After he was arrested, Ullah was rushed to Bellevue Hospital where investigators started questioning him as he got treatment for his injuries.”
The first responders pictured above were all working to save the life of the one man who tried to take theirs. That’s what it means to be a person of compassion and an American. If the immigrants coming from any part of the world can’t put their personal feelings aside enough to adhere to that, maybe the “Muslim ban” should extend even further, until we make sure that every first responder and those they vowed to protect will be safe.
