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.
In the United States ABC proclaimed its primary concern to be an anti-Muslim backlash, while the BBC advised that Europeans simply needed to get used to these attacks. Prime Minister Teresa May promised to “defeat the ideology that often fuels this violence” but did not name the ideology she was referring to.
But investigating or preventing terrorism is extremely difficult in Manchester, as Daniel Greenfield of Frontpage astutely explains. The administrative blowback and stigma associated with law enforcement or political leaders being perceived as “islamophobic” has become an almost insuperable barrier.

Timidity in the face of barbarity. We’ve seen this pattern increasing across Europe as the 2015 wave of massive Muslim immigration has led to jihadist attacks and fear of attacks. Here was a case not so much of a specific threat as it was the native Dutch citizens deciding they simply didn’t want their elementary school children to experience an atmosphere of unease during a town Christmas festival.

This election will determine the fate of our nation. With Donald Trump we have a chance, and it is only that.

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.

Just 14 years ago Democrats in Congress supported cutting off US visas from dangerous countries. Now, supposedly, that would be “racist”. But in the meantime, jihadist subversives have easy pickings if they want to get in to the Great Satan, and they certainly do.

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.

The mayor of New York City doesn’t think it’s terrorism. Apparently the note written in Arabic that was carefully left behind, the eruption of Islamist boasts on social media, and the knifer in Minnesota, Dahir Adan, asking people if they were Muslim before stabbing them, were not helpful clues.
