| America’s hidden jihad - The establishment sweeps certain acts of terror under the rug
| Thursday, December 24, 2015
The police and press did an impressive job of sleuthing into the
lives and motives of Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, the married
couple who massacred 14 people on Dec. 2, in San Bernardino, Calif.
know about their families, their studies and employment histories,
their travels, their marriage, their statements, and their preparations
for the assault. Most importantly, the cascade of background work
reveals that the pair had jihadi intentions, meaning they attacked in
their role as pious Muslims spreading the message, law and sovereignty
We are all better off for knowing these facts, which have had a
powerful impact on the body politic, making Americans far more concerned
with jihadi violence than at any time since just after Sept. 11, 2001,
as they should be. For example, in 2011, 53 percent told a pollster that
terrorism was a critical issue; that number has now reached 75 percent But
what about the case of Yusuf Ibrahim?
In early 2013, when he was 27,
this Egyptian-born Muslim lived in Jersey City, when he allegedly shot,
then cut off the heads and hands and knocked the teeth out of two Coptic
Christians, Hanny F. Tawadros and Amgad A. Konds, then buried them in
Buena Vista Township, N.J. The twin beheadings were spectacular, gruesome and replete with jihadi
(or in police parlance, “terrorist”) elements.
Historian Timothy Furnish
explains that “ritual beheading has a long precedent in Islamic
theology and history,” making it a distinctly Muslim form of execution. A
Muslim killing a non-Muslim fits the ageless pattern of Islamic
supremacism. It also fits a tragic pattern of behavior in the United
States in recent years.
Yet the police, politicians, the press and professors (i.e., the Establishment) have shown not the slightest interest in the Islamic angle, treating the double beheadings and amputations as a routine local murder. Symptomatic of this, the police report about Ibrahim’s arrest makes no mention of motivation; on the basis of this lack of mention, left-leaning Snopes.com (which describes itself as the “definitive Internet reference source for urban legends, folklore, myths, rumors, and misinformation”) goes so far as to dismiss as “false” the allegation that the mainstream media “deliberately ignored” this incident. The wagons have been circled.
