DEFENDING THE WEST
Jihad in Brooklyn – thanks to Obama, de Blasio, CAIR
Exclusive: Pamela Geller decries use of ‘lone wolf’ to describe Islam-encouraged killers
Jihad in Brooklyn: Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley brutally murdered two New York Police Department officers, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, in cold blood in Brooklyn Saturday. The mainstream media are universally reporting that these murders are revenge for the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. They’re not mentioning the fact that Brinsley had an image on his Facebook site of a page of the Quran – the page containing the command to “strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah” (8:60).
Was Brinsley also following the Islamic State’s order to kill policemen? That would certainly “strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah.”
Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley is being called a “lone wolf.” As I explained in my column last week here at WND, there are no lone wolves in the jihad war. Brinsley was no “lone wolf.” Others made his murders possible – even inevitable. Why are we seeing this uptick in the murders of policemen and soldiers in the West by Muslims? Why the escalation now? In a word: sanction. Sanction by the most powerful forces in the country, and in the world. And it’s only getting worse.
Lone wolf is an absurd term. There is a global movement that aids, abets, supports and incites jihad, online and in the mosques. Islamic texts and teachings command jihad. Jihad violence is not one man’s invented idea. There are 1,400 years of jihad history and millions of other Muslims pursuing the same goals. Jihadists are not lone or acting alone, but as a religious movement to impose Islam across the world.
And law enforcement authorities (as policy – Obama’s policy to scrub all acts of jihad of Islam) pull down the Facebook pages, Instagram and Twitter accounts related to these religious slaughters almost immediately. Who are they protecting and why?
Back in August, I warned that Islamic supremacist groups like the Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) sought to exploit the ugly divisiveness of Ferguson to further divide and incite. CAIR, which has been designated a terror group by the United Arab Emirates, called on Muslim imams (prayer leaders) nationwide to devote at least a portion of their Friday khutbas (sermons) to agitating and inciting over Ferguson. In October, pro-terror groups joined CAIR’s Ferguson jihad.
UAE-designated terror group CAIR succeeded in inciting jihad murder in Brooklyn Saturday.
But those who have been warning about Hamas-CAIR’s incitement are derided and dismissed as “Islamophobes.” Every day in every way, millions of Muslims across the world are waging a bloody jihad in the cause of Islam, and we are expected to remain silent about it. The only thing we are permitted (and commanded) to do is congratulate and praise the Muslims who don’t want to kill us.
It isn’t just Hamas-CAIR, the Islamic State (ISIS) and other Islamic groups, either. It’s powerful leftists like Barack Obama who encouraged murders like those Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley committed Saturday. Obama encouraged murders like Brinsley’s slaughter in Brooklyn with his “stay the course” support of the Ferguson savages. He was briefed about the murders of these police officers while playing golf in Hawaii. Then he went back to his game – probably happy that what he incited has come to pass.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio also encouraged this kind of killing. NYPD cops know this: PIX11 reported Saturday that “police officers turned their backs on Mayor Bill de Blasio as he walked into the police press conference about the two NYPD officers shot and killed execution-style in Brooklyn.” And just a couple of weeks ago, NYPD cops said Mayor de Blasio, aka Red Bill, was not welcome at police funerals because of his anti-cop rhetoric in the wake of Ferguson.
The Daily Mail has more: “Hundreds are attacking Mayor Bill de Blasio, President Barack Obama and Al Sharpton after the murder of two police officers in Brooklyn on Saturday. Many are saying that Mayor de Blasio has ‘blood on his hands’ and ‘should be charged with murder.’ Retired NYPD detective Harry Houck told CNN, ‘I guess Al Sharpton got what he wanted.’ … Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik said, ‘De Blasio, Sharpton and all those who encouraged this anti-cop, racist mentality all have blood on their hands.’”
The NYPD should stop protecting de Blasio and his subversive administration. Stand down, New York’s Finest.
For months in the run-up to the New York City mayoral election, I warned New Yorkers about Bill de Blasio. I ran subway ads revealing his real record and program for the city and was widely derided for my opposition to this lowlife: The New York Daily News ran the headline, “Subway’s Islam hater Pamela Geller slams ‘Red’ Bill’ de Blasio.”
Now a lot of New Yorkers know better.
If the country sees fit to elect an Obama and a de Blasio, the country is in ruins.
An axis of evil and hate. What do all of these disparate players – Obama, de Blasio, Sharpton, CAIR – have in common? A shared goal: the destruction of America.
If the 20th century has shown us anything, it’s that modernity has had no positive or ameliorating effect on the savagery of men. It did not lessen the evil impulses of modern man, or of those who were willing to carry out the most heinous crimes against humanity. If anything, it has been just the opposite. Modernity (science, technology) made genocide easier, more efficient.
The only totalitarian ideology more brutal and bloodthirsty than the left – Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, etc. – is one partnered with Islam.
There have been many eras in human history during which the barbarians have been in control – have won great wars and wielded immense power. It appears that we are entering such an age. The age of the primitive.
