It appears that the jihadist who led the mass slaughter on Christians was an American Muslim. Looks like AFDI will be creating another “yesterday’s moderate is today’s headline” ad.
Again and again and again, I repeat, A is A. Jihad is jihad.
The leftist/Islamic lie that is rammed down our throats by Islamic supremacists like Hamas-CAIR and Islamic apologists like President Obama, John Kerry, the media and academics across the world, that this has nothing to do with Islam, is absurd on its face. It is outrageous, false and fatal. They will attribute jihad to poverty, illiteracy, culture — anything but its true origins. State Department Spokesteenager Marie Harf said yesterday that the Islamic State jihadists just need jobs.
One Muslima who joined the jihad, Aqsa Mahmood, grew up in an affluent neighborhood and attended a prestigious private school. Giving further proof to the lie (as if we needed more) that poverty, disaffection, illiteracy blah blah blah is the motivator behind Muslims going Islam.
American is becoming part of the problem. Jordan, Egypt, Israel, and now Italy are fighting back. Obama is appointing a hafiz to engage the enemy on twitter.
Thousands of Muslims from Europe, North America, Australia, etc. are flocking to the Middle East to wage jihad grew up in the West. They went to good schools and came from affluent homes. Some stay in their own countries and aid and abet the jihad — like this business executive in India, who also happened to be the most influential pro-Islamic State Twitter account to be followed by foreign jihadis, beheaders, rapists and slaughterers in the cause of Islam.
At the risk of repeating myself for the umpeenth time, this war is ideological. It’s religious and political, because Islam is political. Nationality, race, sex, ethnicity, borders, hair color, shoe size are irrelevant. The common thread is Islam — pure Islam.
Rappers in Germany, doctors in Glasgow, chemical engineering students in Canada, heart surgeons in Saudi Arabia, university students in Britain, imams in America, herdsmen in Nigeria and so forth – what brings these wildly different people together? Jihad. From the Sahara to the Kalahari, London to Lisbon, Manhattan to Madrid, Bali to Boston, Tiananmen Square to Thailand, Myanmar to Malaysia, Nairobi to Nigeria ….. no matter what the background, upbringing, schooling, wealth or poverty, color, what have you, it doesn’t matter. The understanding of Islam and jihad is the same, and it is the motive, the incitement to this monstrous war on the West and the East and all points in between.
And the Muslims fighting to establish an Islamic state in Libya have the same ideology and follow the same playbook as the Muslims fighting for an Islamic state in Libya and Iraq and Syria (Islamic State- ISIS), and the Muslims fighting for an Islamic state in Lebanon (Hezb’Allh), and the Muslims fighting for an Islamic state in Israel (Hamas, )and the Muslims fighting for an Islamic state in China (Uighurs), and the Muslims fighting for an Islamic state in Nigeria (Boko Haram), and the Muslims fighting for an Islamic state in Russia, and the Muslims fighting for an Islamic state in the Philippines (MILF), and the Muslims fighting for an Islamic state in the Maghreb and Arabia (al-Qaeda), and the Muslims fighting for an Islamic state in Afghanistan (the Taliban), and the Muslims fighting for an Islamic state in Somalia (al-Shabaab), and so forth.

The masked jihadi who led the executions of 21 Egyptian Christians in Libya over the weekend could be an American recruited by ISIS, sources tell The Post.
Intelligence experts are analyzing the facial features and speech patterns of the unidentified extremist seen in a gruesome video released by the Islamic State on Sunday.
As they search for potential clues to his identity, officials are carefully examining the possibility that the masked ISIS thug could be a Starbuck-sippin’, apple pie-eating American.
Professor Erik Thomas — a linguistics expert at North Carolina State University — says that based on distinctive word pronunciations, the unidentified man in camouflage “sounds like an American” with some Arabic influence mixed in, according to ABC News.
On the other hand, an expert who asked not to be named said the ISIS execution leader could be a native Arabic speaker who learned American English while spending a “significant amount of time” in the US.
Similar to the hunt for the ISIS fighter “Jihadi John,” US officials are conducting detailed analysis of the video as they search for evidence of an American ISIS recruit.
