The next Islamic terror attack happened this week at a large concert arena in Manchester, the second largest city in the UK. The bomber, Salman Abedi, had in recent years raised numerous suspicions of having become radicalized but wasn’t believed an immediate threat. Beyond the obvious tragedy of innocent concert goers being brutally murdered is the unnecessary travesty of politicians and media figures saying we must become accustomed to terror as well as be especially focused on Islamophobia.
A former disciple of radical imam Anjem Choudary reflects on how his childhood traumas and broken home led him into drug use and dealing in his teen years, ultimately landing him in prison. Angry and incarcerated, Jesse Morton was in perfect condition to be radicalized into a committed jihadi.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, leader of worldwide Anglican communion, has made a speech in Paris in which he intimated that the Islamic State might have something to do with Islam. He’s fashionably late to the party but still there before Pope Francis.
This election will determine the fate of our nation. With Donald Trump we have a chance, and it is only that. Over the past few years we have learned to our shock and dismay just how corrupt and out of touch our elected officials really are. They have an agenda and it does not include the American people, except in extracting as much of our resources as possible. They are a powerful force. I don’t know if Donald Trump can overcome it, but I do know that no one else can.
There’s no surprise in this, of course – Clinton has said she will increase the importation of Muslims into America to 65,000 from Obama’s already completely unvettable 10,500. The Hamas-affiliated Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) sponsored the survey that published this result which, if true, is further indication of the “marriage of convenience” between the Left and radical Islam.
She pops up like clockwork whenever there’s a townhall. Wearing a hijab and a doleful expression, the Muslim woman asks plaintively what the candidate intends to do about “Islamophobia.” She will mention that she’s one of over 3 million Muslims in the U.S., and may claim that she’s frightened to go out in public.
