This is exactly what this is about. Sayfullo (translation: sword of Allah) Saipov’s mosque was under investigation until Mayor de Blasio dismantled counter terrorism programs in order to appease his Muslim constituency. If his mosque had remained under surveillance, then the attack might have been stopped. It might have been discovered that he was plotting jihad. But New Yorkers had to die in order to prove what? That the jihadists have succeeded in imposing sharia restrictions on our response to jihad terror?
Last night, I was on Hannity’s show on FOX, and one of this other guests was NYPD counterterrorism detective Bill McGroarty, who was part of the investigation of the mosque behind the New York Islamic truck attack. He said there were over 20 Muslims at that mosque who were “radicalized” and had a deep hatred of America. Watch.
NY Deputy Police Commissioner: “This isn’t about Islam, this isn’t about the mosque he attends”
Jihad Watch, November 2, 2017:
Sayfullo Saipov screamed “Allahu akbar” as he murdered people. Why did he do that? Does John Miller understand what the significance of that cry in the context of a jihad attack is? How can he be so sure that this is not about Islam, when Saipov himself associated his act with Islam?
And how does Miller know that this isn’t about the mosque he attends? How does he know the mosque didn’t exhort Saipov to commit an act of violent jihad for Allah? Is that a possibility that is just too politically damaging for the de Blasio administration to contemplate?
Miller warns against “Islamophobic” hate crimes. Very well. When has he ever warned people in the same stern tones not to commit jihad mass murder? Or would such a warning be “Islamophobic”?
