“I’ll see you in New York?” This is what we are up against.
“First Baghdad — and then the Big Apple.
“The al Qaeda-affiliated insurgent leader threatening to topple Iraq’s government offered an ominous warning when he parted ways with the US soldiers who once held him prisoner: ‘I’ll see you in New York.’
“Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who now leads the Sunni ultra-extremist group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, was held at Camp Bucca in southern Iraq for four years before he was handed over to the Iraqi government in 2009.”
This guy and the people he rides with are serious. It’s no idle threat.
The goal of Islam, even it’s only expressed by a radical minority, is to take over the world – submit to Islam or die.
The so-called moderate Muslims are afraid to speak out against those who advance Islam through terror. When confronted by ISIS, many Iraqi soldiers laid down their arms and joined them in the fight.
In addition to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi comments about bringing the Islamic fight to America, “In the past few months, as many as 15 Somali-American men have left the Minneapolis-St. Paul area in order to join radical jihadist insurgents in Syria, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.” Our liberal immigration policies have made this possible.
Using Twitter, an American convert to Islam calls for Obama and his family to be beheaded.
Dr. Subhi Al-Yazji, a Palestinian professor at the Islamic University in Gaza, says that radical Islamists are not motivated by money or are radicalized because of poverty. The motivation is jihad on a global scale. “In his book Perfect Soldiers: The 9/11 Hijackers: Who They Were, Why They Did It, former Los Angeles Times correspondent Terry McDermott noted that the hijackers were largely ‘young men from good backgrounds’ who were motivated by radical Islam and jihad.”
You know this is serious business when Sen. Dianne Feinstein is concerned enough to bring up the topic:
“Fighters with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, ISIS, could be a direct threat to the United States’ security if efforts aren’t made to disrupt plotting before it happens, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Sen. Dianne Feinstein believes.
“‘We know there are at least 100 Americans that have gone to the area to fight who have an American passport, who are going to try to get back,’ Feinstein told CNN’s Candy Crowley on ‘State of the Union’ Sunday.
“Officials know that the fighters can go back to Europe and if they are in a country where Visas are waived, can ‘come right into the United States,’ she said.
“‘This is where I think he we need to build our intelligence to see that we can disrupt the plot in this country before it happens,’ said Feinstein, ‘because there will be plots to kill Americans.’”
Maybe when Muslims can’t escape the radicals by coming to the United States through our liberal immigration policies they will decide to take a real stand against them in their own countries.
