Terror Plot Foiled


Pages: 1 2

Boston-area man Rezwan Ferdaus, 26, has been arrested and indicted on charges of plotting a terrorist attack on the U.S. Capitol Building and the Pentagon. Ferdaus, an American citizen — born in America, no less — is alleged to have intended to fly remote control airplanes, purchased from hobby shops, into the targets. It was his apparent hope that the remote control toys — the poor man’s Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, in this case — would carry explosive devices into the targets, setting them ablaze. As the buildings were evacuated, Ferdaus allegedly hoped to fire into the crowds with assault rifles and grenades.

Should these charges be proven in court, it will be a major victory for U.S. counter-terrorism efforts. But those very same efforts are under attack by those who see closet Islamophobes behind every wiretap and sting operation. The arrest of Ferdaus could prove to be not only a win for the United States in the war on terror, but for America’s peaceful Muslims.

From what is known so far, the detection and arrest of Ferdaus is a major achievement for U.S. law enforcement. Prior to his arrest on terrorism charges, Ferdaus’s only brush with the law had been for a high-school prank where he and friends cemented doors to their school shut. When he radicalized is not yet known. But, apparently after Ferdaus began seeking fellow jihadists online, the FBI began to monitor him.

Indeed, it has been reported that over the last several months, Ferdaus had dealings with FBI agents that he believed were Islamists set on attacking America. Ferdaus, a physics graduate, designed detonators that he provided the agents, and was told these had been smuggled to Iraq and used to kill U.S. soldiers, much to Ferdaus’s delight. Ferdaus then began to request weapons and supplies from his FBI “allies.” He received six AK-47s, several grenades and 25 lbs. of what he believed was C4 plastic explosive. It was then that he was arrested.

This is classic police work. A suspect is identified, contacted, and allowed to incriminate himself before an arrest is made and without public safety being threatened. This is how child pornographers, drug smugglers and gun runners are identified and caught. It’s how stolen goods are traced. Don’t let the modern tools fool you — cellphones, Internet cafes and social media notwithstanding, any 19th-century detective worth their salt would recognize and applaud the kind of work that the FBI put into this case.

Such methods are still controversial for some, but absolutely necessary. Not every terrorism case will benefit from a major break such as the one that benefited Canadian police in 2006. In that case, a home-grown cell of Canadian Islamists were planning a series of bomb and gun attacks on the financial centre of Toronto and the Parliament buildings in Ottawa. A patriotic Canadian Muslim, who became aware of the plan and was appalled, gave up the group. A police sting operation very similar to the one that captured Ferdaus was initiated after the plot came to light, and the attack was averted.

    In my personal opinion, if the MUSLIM community feels targeted, allow me to remind
    them with all due respect, that this country has put up with enough from them besides
    horrors like 9/11, the FORT HOOD massacre and all the attempts carried out or foiled
    until now, none of those carried out by ESKIMOS but by MUSLIMS and that,
    unfortunately for them, is the price they have to pay for staying here…

    Otherwise, they can rest assured that the exit gates of the country are wide open and
    that ALL of them are free to go back to their places of origin, whether born in the
    USA but of foreign parents….

    And as to "MODERATES" among them, allow me to ask again and again, whether all
    those dancing and giving out candy in the streets of QUEENS, NY, while people were
    jumping to their deaths from the WTC windows, were "MODERATE MUSLIMS"……

    • myohmy

      good post. And yes, if you trust the media all those muslims who are not active terrorists are "moderates". Ha. The fact is all muslims are jihadis or jihadis in training. We dare not trust any of them, even the ones who present themselves as moderates. If they are active in a mosque they are using taqquiya like the good little traitors they are.

  • Thomas N. Fleming

    One never hears from CAIR to denounce Moslem violence. NEVER.

    • myohmy

      sorry, but they do denounce "violence". But when a muslim kills an infidel or butchers one that's not "violence" to them, that's keeping the peace by killing someone who needs to be killed. What pisses me off is no one ever asks these muslims who denounce violence if they will also condemn a suicide bomber. They will never condemn one of their "martyrs" by name. They will name streets after those scumbags and take gifts to their families.

  • maturin20

    It does sound like entrapment, but as you say, the courts will consider that.

      No it is not. From: http://www.lectlaw.com/def/e024.htm
      For once, at least try not sound as stupid as Flipper:-(
      "ENTRAPMENT

      A person is 'entrapped' when he is induced or persuaded by law enforcement officers or their agents to commit a crime that he had no previous intent to commit; and the law as a matter of policy forbids conviction in such a case.

      However, there is no entrapment where a person is ready and willing to break the law and the Government agents merely provide what appears to be a favorable opportunity for the person to commit the crime. For example, it is not entrapment for a Government agent to pretend to be someone else and to offer, either directly or through an informer or other decoy, to engage in an unlawful transaction with the person. So, a person would not be a victim of entrapment if the person was ready, willing and able to commit the crime charged in the indictment whenever opportunity was afforded, and that Government officers or their agents did no more than offer an opportunity.

      On the other hand, if the evidence leaves a reasonable doubt whether the person had any intent to commit the crime except for inducement or persuasion on the part of some Government officer or agent, then the person is not guilty.

      In slightly different words: Even though someone may have [sold drugs], as charged by the government, if it was the result of entrapment then he is not guilty. Government agents entrapped him if three things occurred:

      - First, the idea for committing the crime came from the government agents and not from the person accused of the crime.

      - Second, the government agents then persuaded or talked the person into committing the crime. Simply giving him the opportunity to commit the crime is not the same as persuading him to commit the crime.

      - And third, the person was not ready and willing to commit the crime before the government agents spoke with him.

      On the issue of entrapment the government must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant was not entrapped by government agents. "

        This long-winded Wikipedia report doesn’t address the fact that the FBI goes out looking for disgruntled Americans, most of whom by fault if government economic policy are disgruntled and deprived of resources, and it fans their anger and gives them money and war materiels. Then after raising these armies of one, they arrest them. We are supposed to believe that they had the motive but not the opportunity. I beg to differ. Opportunity abounds. Resources do not. Resources monopoly provides the motive to terrorism. Therefore it is entrapment.

        • rocketpanda

          I'm all for due process and a fair trial, but it really sounds like he had been planning this attack for some time before he even talked to the undercover agents. That and the fact that no matter how disgruntled I am if somebody offered me AK-47s and C-4, I wouldn't take them up on it.

          Truth.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    The notion that Islam is a so-called Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists and that the vast overwhelming majority of Muslims in the world are peaceful and moderate is a ludicrous political correct myth.

    The truth is per the sixth and most important pillar of Islam, ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS are jihadists. A few of them are violent jihadists, while most of them are non-violent stealth and deceptive jihadists, and the ones that are not jihadists aren't Muslims at all but instead blasphemous apostates that per the dictates of Islam must be executed.

    Thus, since all Muslims are jihadists, all Muslims therefore living in America as a fifth column are also jihadists. In fact, without this support network of Muslim jihadists already living in America as a fifth column the 9/11 jihad attacks would have been completely impossible. Hence, Islam must eventually be outlawed in America and mass Muslim immigration banned and reversed. Otherwise, they will win.

    Not only that, but if we outlaw Islam and ban and reverse mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage, the hundreds of billions of dollars we are currently wasting to create a false sense of security via an absurd massive government bureaucracy can be used to pay down the national debt instead, as zero Muslims living in American would equal zero probability of jihad attacks.

    Now if anyone thinks that the above is somehow Islamophobic, then it is obvious that they are blinded by political correctness and as a direct result completely oblivious of the threats emanating from Islam.

    Regarding entrapment, there was a similar incident a few years ago where MSNBC's Chris Matthews stated, "I didn't know it was illegal to talk to a jihadist." He was also insinuating "entrapment"…which is funny since the majority of MSNBCs non-news programming is about crime etc where they show stings against spouses that conspire to kill their partners…

  • PatriotX

    I don’t know if I could agree fully with ObamaYoMoma fully. You know, there’s alot of things in the bible that modern day Christians don’t follow or choose to discard. Baptism, teachings against pre-marital sex, homosexuality, some don’t believe in the holy trinity….etc. I just can’t totally scandalize an entire group of people with a clean concience. Besides that, I know, you know and everyone who knows the liberal-leftist lunatics will somehow use outlawing Islam as a bases for outlawing Christianity and every other form of worship…well they are already trying to steer us in that direction now with all of the persecution of those who oppose their stance or beliefs on moral issues. All in all, when you come down to it outlawing Islam will only add to tension in ways that would be adverse to everyone.

    Now, deporting the ones that are spewing their hatred of the U.S. or talks of Jihad against citizens, I’m definitely in favor of and we should start doing that soon regarless of citizenship.

    • ObamaYoMoma

      Like I said anyone who thinks I'm a bit Islamophobic is blinded by political correctness. Sure there are a lot of things Christians don't follow or choose to discard, however, Christianity is a true faith based religion as opposed to Islam which requires total, complete, and unconditional submission to the will of Allah. Indeed, the word Islam in Arabic means “to submit” and the word Muslim in Arabic means “one who submits.” Thus, unlike in faith-based religions where adherents are perfectly free to question and even challenge the texts and tenets of their respective religions and also free to leave their respective religions or to convert to another religion altogether if they so desire, in Islam, on the other hand, because the freedom of conscience is forbidden, those same actions, blasphemy in the first case and apostasy in the second, are both capital offenses.

      Indeed, what faith-based religions also punish blasphemy and apostasy under the pain of death? The answer, of course, is none of them, proving irrefutably that Islam is not a faith-based religion as it purports itself to be. Hence, why are you equating it with faith-based religions? Oh, I know, because you are blinded by political correctness and henceforth ignorant of what Islam really is. Well, the reality is Islam only masquerades as being a faith-based religion to dupe the societies it intends to subjugate into a very draconian form of Islamic totalitarianism via the imposition of Sharia.

      Furthermore, the sixth pillar of which Islam stands makes it an obligatory duty in Islam for EVERY MUSLIM to fight jihad in the cause of Allah. It doesn't make it an obligatory duty only for so-called RADICALS and it doesn't make it an obligatory duty only for so-called EXTREMISTS, while giving so-called peace loving and moderate Muslims an exemption and free pass from fighting jihad. Instead, the sixth and most important pillar of which Islam stands makes it an obligatory duty for ALL MUSLIMS to fight jihad in the cause of Allah. No exceptions.

      Hence, ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS are jihadists. A few of them are violent jihadists, while the majority of them are non-violent stealth and deceptive jihadists, and the few that aren't jihadists aren't Muslims at all but instead blasphemous apostates that per the dictates of Islam must be executed. Now, this is not to say that all blasphemous apostates get executed, as most of them are intelligent enough to know that they must keep their mouth shut but they are nonetheless silenced and inconsequential as a result.

      In addition, in the West jihad is routinely conflated with being terrorism. However, jihad and terrorism are mutually exclusive from each other and two entirely different things altogether, as terrorism, which can be for any number of political causes, is as its name implies always violent and directed against civilian non-combatants. It is also a product of Western civilization only. Whereas jihad, on the other hand, is holy fighting in the cause of Allah against unbelievers to make Islam supreme, can be both violent and non-violent as opposed to terrorism which is always violent, is directed against non-Muslim unbelievers, whether civilian non-combatants as in the Madrid Train Bombings or military combatants as in Afghanistan and Iraq. It is also solely a product of Islamic civilization only.

      Nevertheless, because violent jihad in the West is always conflated with being terrorism, the non-violent varieties of stealth and deceptive jihad takes place completely below the radar of scrutiny totally unacknowledged and unopposed today. In fact, in many cases it is even encouraged.

      For instance, mass Muslim immigration to the West and other non-Islamic countries is a form of stealth and deceptive non-violent jihad, as its sole purpose is to eventually make Islam supreme via demographic conquest. Indeed, in country after country and anywhere and everywhere mass Muslim immigration is occurring in the world today, just like clockwork the vast overwhelming majority of Muslim immigrants flat out refuse to assimilate and integrate and instead form segregated Muslim enclaves that eventually in time morph into Muslim no-go zones ruled by Sharia and in direct contravention to the laws of the states in which they reside.

      Indeed, we see these Muslim no-go zones ruled by Sharia sprinkled throughout Europe today. In fact, the government of France has identified the existence of 758 Muslim no-go zones ruled by Sharia in France alone. Hence, obviously Muslim aren't migrating to the West and other non-Islamic countries to assimilate and integrate but instead for the purpose of eventually subjugating and dominating in order to make Islam supreme via demographic conquest per the dictates of Islam.

      Therefore, Islam in the West should be outlawed and mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage should be banned and reversed ASAP. Furthermore, the notion that Islam is protected by the first amendment because it is a faith-based religion is utterly false, as Islam is demonstrably not a faith-based religion. In fact, what Islam really is, is a supremacist theo-political form of totalitarianism that seeks to subjugate the world into a very retrograde and draconian form of totalitarianism via the imposition of Sharia, and as such it should be eradicated from the face of the earth.

      • PatriotX

        First off, let me get something straight ObamaYoMama, I’m fully aware of the Islamization of this nation, believe me, and political correctness is not my strong point however I am realistic in thinking where in some ways you aren’t. Do you really think it’s realistic that our government will buy off on deporting all Muslims from this country? Do you really think that every muslim is out to get you? Seriously? This is the type of stuff that’s going to really turn everyone, who hasn’t already against our efforts.

        Second, maybe you have or haven’t but I’ve actually dealt with Muslims. I’ve done 3 tours in Iraq and not everyone you meet is a devout Muslim and No, and I do mean, NO, I don’t believe it’s a” religion of peace”. I have no idea how you came to that conclusion. I know a few people our unit did memorials for that would attest to the fact that it isn’t a “religion of peace”. If it was they wouldn’t be dead. Enforcing the constition, you know, what those in office are supposed to do in the first place, would resolve alot of the problems to begin with.

        Secondly I’d like to address the comment of “That does not mean that they are right to do so. If a person professes to belong to a faith, then they can and must be judged by the tenets of that faith: the writings and teachings of the founders and early leaders.” I don’t defend the people who do this, I’m just stating that there are those who do. You have varying degrees of Islam, just like you have varying degrees of Christianity. Now, I don’t support it, I believe you either follow God’s word or you don’t, plain and simple however there are those who pick and choose scriptures to either follow and not follow and they’re out there preaching their doctrine. A good example is Westboro Baptist church. Now, how they could call themselves Christians, I’ll never know, but they exist and they profess to be Christians. Yet, I don’t think it would be cool to associate every Chistian with them and say that all Christians are creatures full of bile and hate and there are some that are saying that very thing because of this church of clowns called Westboro and few others. So, please, don’t label me “naive”.

        Exiling every Muslim in the United States and outlawing Islam will only cause those who were for expelling those who were doing this nonsense from the ranks to actually siding with those who were.

        • PatriotX

          The third paragraph should start off “Thirdly” and and the last paragraph should read “siding with those who are doing and supporting the terrorism”

            Hey dude, lets just keep this short, sweet, and simple. Not only are you blinded by political correctness big time, but you are also oblivious of Islam big time. I know you think you are an authority on Islam, but trust me you couldn't be more oblivious.

          We cannot drive out Muslims linvig in the USA who are American citizens, but what we can do is to stop all immigration of Muslims into the USA. Of course, not all Muslims are Jihadists, but the fewer Muslims in our country, the fewer Jihadists and supporters of Jihad we will have.A Muslim linvig in Pakistan who wants to immigrate into the USA has no right to our first amendment right to freedom of religion, so we can stop all Muslim immigration without violating the first amendment.

    • ObamaYoMoma

      Now, deporting the ones that are spewing their hatred of the U.S. or talks of Jihad against citizens, I'm definitely in favor of and we should start doing that soon regarless of citizenship.

      In other words, you support deporting the so-called radicals and extremists because you naively buy into the absurdity that Islam is a so-called Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists paradigm which, by the way, is an absurd political correct myth. Nevertheless, if Islam is really a so-called Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists, then why are all Christians and all other non-Muslim unbelievers living in the Islamic world under harsh and degrading Islamic rule as dhimmis violently oppressed and systematically persecuted when not outright slaughtered altogether in every Islamic country in the world today? Indeed, as noted above, why do the vast overwhelming majority of Muslim immigrants in country after country without a single exception flat out refuse to assimilate and integrate and instead form segregated Muslim no-go zones ruled by Sharia if Islam is a so-called Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists? Obviously, because that paradigm,which is the prevailing paradigm, isn't true and is in fact an absurd political correct myth.

      • PatriotX

        “segregated Muslim no-go zones ruled by Sharia if Islam is a so-called Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists?” these are exactly the types I was referring to, maybe I should have been more specific and elaborated more. If we had a president that would ENFORCE the CONSTITUTION we would have this nonsense (or better yet a president who actually believe in the constitution). The constitution is the law of the land, not sharia. They are trying to do this crap in Michigan as we speak and if people would wake up and see that it’s no different from the type of racial segregation that we struggled to abolish during the civil rights movment we could put a stop to it.

        • PatriotX

          Sorry for the typos, it’s been a long day. This should read “we would’nt have this nonsense (or better yet a president who actually believe in the constitution)”.

          • effemall

            I read with interest the discourse between you two a day late and feel compelled to add a word. In an ideal world Islam would be outlawed and all Muslims would become Christians or Jews or atheists and thereby freed from the insanity of that religion. In a real world and particularly in the Americas we can't pack them all up and ship them off to other countries but we can deport those who overtly need deporting such as mullahs who agitate and preach hate, etc. I would not deport actual criminal plotters. If they are U.S. citizens, no matter where born, they are traitors and should be put to death. Most important however, because Islam dictates to its followers that they must conquer the world it would be perfectly justified that no more Muslims will be allowed to immigrate to our lands and settle here. That may be unfair to some peaceful Muslims who just happened to be born into families that are Muslim and would never dream of harming us but when it comes to self-preservation we sometimes need to disregard total fairness. Many countries bar certain people in their own interest. Some countries such as New Zealand will not accept immigrants over the age of 50 because of their socialized healthcare system and they don't want people to come to use their system after not having paid into it for most of their lives. We would be perfectly justified in barring Muslims from becoming immigrants and settling among us.

          • ObamaYoMoma

            With all due respect, like PatriotX you are also blinded by political correctness and as a result ignorant of Islam.

      "You know, there's alot of things in the bible that modern day Christians don't follow or choose to discard."

      That does not mean that they are right to do so. If a person professes to belong to a faith, then they can and must be judged by the tenets of that faith: the writings and teachings of the founders and early leaders. The interesting aspect of Islam, especially in the U.S. is that the "moderate" Muslims are actually the apostates. The "islamists" are the fundamentalist true-believers.

    • aspacia

      A few years back I would agree with you, and there are patriotic U.S. Muslims like Jasser, however I am concerned regarding any Muslim who openly condemns the U.S and her methods of preventing terrorism. Perhaps, it is only these Muslims, who should lose their citizenship, if they have it, and be deported. Geez, I sure would like to get rid of Wright and Ayres too.

        The slick self-proclaimed so-called moderate Muslim, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, is not patriotic and he is not what he pretends to be. He is in fact a stealth and deceptive non-violent jihadist, and more and more people such as Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller are pointing that out too.

        Ayres was a terrorist, while Muslims are jihadists. The two are mutually exclusive and entirely two different things altogether.

          He honorably served during Desert Storm and he is Muslim. He condemns Sharia, Durban III, the Ground Zero Mosque and recently wrote a scathing critique regarding his imam.. He has face numerous threats to himself and his family.

          I doubt you have half his courage or have done a fourth as much as he has done in the fight against Muslim terror. Yes, he calls it Muslim terrorism.

          • ObamaYoMoma

            He has about as much courage as it takes to easily dupe a gullible useful idiot like you, which doesn't take very much at all. Indeed, the notions that there is a “radical Islam” and a “moderate Islam,” “radical Muslims” and “moderate Muslims,” and that Islam is a “Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists” are all not only politically correct myths, but also demonstrably false as I demonstrated in my above posts.

            Yet, Jasser nonetheless proclaims the mantle of being a so-called “moderate Muslim,” which is none existent because it is a political correct myth, while also proclaiming at the same time to be a so-called “Muslim reformer,” which is also a political correct myth as anyone who has studied Islam in depth knows full well because it is impossible for Islam to ever be reformed since first of all it is not really a religion to begin with. In effect claiming to be a Muslim reformer is analogous to declaring that you are a blasphemous apostate, but it nevertheless is very effective for duping gullible useful idiot kafir infidels like you.

            With respect to Sharia, you can denounce Sharia all you want, but Sharia and Jihad are intrinsic to Islam and you can't have Islam without also having Sharia and Jihad, as Sharia is the will of Allah and Jihad is the sixth and most important pillar of Islam. Take away either one or both and you don't have Islam, as again both are intrinsic to Islam. Hence, you can denounce Sharia and Jihad all you want, but as long as you stupidly import Muslims into your country, you will nevertheless also be importing Sharia and Jihad at the same time. Something Jasser as a life long Muslim knows perfectly well.

            With respect to the other garbage he uses to dupe gullible useful idiots like you, he has been caught in numerous lies and inconsistencies and exposed by many people such as Debbie Schlussel, Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, and more. He is a smooth talking taqiyya artist and media whore, and his sole purpose is to reenforce the prevailing false paradigms pushed by the lamestream media that I mentioned above. Indeed, if you listen to him, he sounds like a neo-con on steroids because he knows full well that pursuing silly fantasy based nation-building missions in order to democratize the Islamic world is about as counterproductive and self-defeating as it gets.

            Finally, what Jasser claims about Islam and Muslims is also diametrically opposed to what real and genuine ex Muslim apostates like Wafa Sultan, Nonie Darwish, Ali Sina, Ibn Warraq, Abul Kasem, and many, many other ex Muslim apostates living in the West today and sounding the alarm about Islam are saying. Hence, you can choose to believe a stealth and deceptive non-violent jihadist and taqiyya artist like Jasser, are you can choose to believe real and genuine ex Muslim apostates that far outnumber his lone voice, it really doesn't matter to me. Indeed, if you prefer to continue being a useful idiot dupe all your miserable life, then by all means go right ahead. More power to you! I could care less.

            I doubt you have half his courage or have done a fourth as much as he has done in the fight against Muslim terror. Yes, he calls it Muslim terrorism.

            Yeah right, Muslim terror is also another political correct myth as Muslims wage jihad instead, which is holy fighting in the cause of Allah against unbelievers to make Islam supreme and which is a product of Islamic civilization only, while non-Muslims only perpetrate terrorism, which is a product of Western civilization only.

            In addition, while jihad can be both violent and non-violent, terrorism, on the other hand, as its name implies is always only violent. Indeed, Jasser is a stealth and deceptive non-violent Jihadist and taqiyya artist deceiving gullible useful idiots like you. Hence, you obviously couldn't be anymore oblivious, which further explains why you are so easily duped. Indeed, you are the proverbial walking and talking useful idiot and Muslim apologist.

      Here are the commands of Christianity:

      Do not lie
      Do not steal
      Do not cheat
      Do not murder
      Do not covet

      Beyond those commands, there are no more for Christians.

      The koran on the other hand – clearly violates every one of those Christian laws.

      It is because of the Christian laws that made America the nation that it is today. (who is the american that would rather live in a muslim nation? – especially women?)

      No society can sustain both books….and the lack of freedom of religion in all muslim nations is proof of that.

    The FBI agents gave Ferdaus SIX AK-47s? Were they full-auto AKs? What the hell was THAT all about, after Operation Fast and Furious? Did they give him ammo too? Did they think there would be an opportunity to plump for more gun control after doing that? If he had held out for M-4s or M-16s, or an M203, do you think they'd have given him a bunch of them? Maybe they could throw in a couple of cleaning kits and a few hundred silhouette targets to boot. After they busted him, did they recover the six AKs? Where did those weapons go? How many other suspects are they investigating? How many AKs are they giving out? Can I get them to give me one even if I'm opposed to terrorists? I'd be satisfied with only one…and some ammo.

    • Paul of Alexandria

      Yes, they recovered the weapons.

        Well, thank Heaven for small blessings.

        I don't suppose the Department of Justice is contemplating prosecutions against the FBI agents for their involvement in violations of the Federal Firearms Act and the Omnibus Safe Streets and Crime Control Act, in that they conspired (successfully) with an unlicensed person to give him possession of Title II firearms, are they? Oh wait, the U.S. government didn't sell them; they GAVE them to him. Never mind.

    When he radicalized is not yet known.

    Yeah right…like there is a specific radicalization process that so-called peaceful and moderate Muslims undergo that somehow morphs them overnight into vicious and cruel radicalized terrorists? I hate to rain on the writer's naïve parade, but that notion is a political correct myth just as the notion that Islam is a so-called Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists is also a political correct myth.

    Actively seeking out and neutralizing threats to national security before they strike protects America’s peaceful Muslims.

    Of course, the vast overwhelming majority of Muslim immigrants living in the USA as a fifth column are peaceful, but that's because the vast overwhelming majority of Muslims living in the USA are non-violent stealth and deceptive jihadists fighting in the cause of Allah by virtue of living in America as a fifth column for the purpose of eventually making Islam supreme via demographic conquest.

    But the same Pew Center poll…

    I don't know about the writer, but I am not gullible enough to put any faith in polls of stealth and deceptive non-violent jihadists living in America as a fifth column conducted by PEW, a leftwing organization that accepts the demonstrably false paradigm that Islam is a so-called Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists as irrefutable. Indeed, please excuse me if I'm not gullible enough to believe that stealth and deceptive non-violent jihadists living in America as a fifth column aren't astute enough to know better than to arbitrarily spill their guts to leftwing polling organizations like PEW about their true motivations with respect to America. I mean their whole purpose for migrating to the West is deception. Indeed, there are literally thousands of Muslim no-go zones in the West today ruled by Sharia. Thus, their true motivations couldn't be more obvious.

    It was the reputation of America’s Muslim community, who inevitably (and largely unfairly) would take the blame in the aftermath of any homegrown attack.

    Again, the writer's statement above assumes the Islam is a so-called Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists paradigm is accurate and correct, instead of the demonstrably false political correct myth that it really is. In other words, he is utterly blinded by political correctness.

    In any event, expanding government isn't the solution for anything much less protecting the homeland from jihad attacks. Indeed, all we managed to accomplish by doubling the size, scope, and power of the federal government in response to 9/11 was to usurp Americans heretofore constitutionally protected rights and freedoms, needlessly incur a ton of national debt, and create a false sense of security, as the real reality is we are actually more vulnerable to violent jihad attacks today than we were on the day the 9/11 jihad attacks occurred.

    Had we banned and reversed Muslim immigration instead in response to the 9/11 jihad attacks, we would not have incurred a ton of national debt, many people that were murdered in subsequent jihad attacks like the Fort Hood Massacre, for instance, would still be alive today, and the homeland would be far safer today by virtue of the fact that zero Muslims living in America would equal zero jihad attacks.

    I don't know what Muslims with their excess baggage have to contribute to America that makes all of the above unnecessary brain damage worth it, but whatever it is it must be extremely valuable. Indeed, what other immigrant groups besides Muslims with their excess baggage have we Americans also bent over backwards to accommodate by doubling the size, scope, and power of the federal government, incurring trillions of dollars of national debt in the process, and by sacrificing our rights and freedoms on the altar of political correctness and changing America forever in the process at the same time just to accommodate them the same way we have with respect to Muslims and all their excess baggage?

    Their plan was quite rickety, but you never know how much carnage they could cause should they pull it off.

  • xlent

    "arrest of Ferdaus could prove to be not only a win for the United States in the war on terror, but for America’s peaceful Muslims"… Say what?, there is not one "peaceful muslim" on this planet. As long as they call themselves muslim they are in agreement with the book of horror, ( sometimes called the koran) and as long as they go by any part of it they go by all of it and that simpliy means THEY WANT YOU DEAD if you are not one of them. What is "peaceful" about that??

  • unhomme

    It may be true that not all Muslims are terrorists
    but it's also true that all terrorists are Muslims

    That is what Islam has chosen for its followers today: the glorification of bloodshed and carnage, and you hear no Muslim condemning, combatting or speaking out against those barbarians and their savageries! We need to protect our citizens against this parasite of fanaticism.

  • alphakilosingh

    Regardless of what the left-liberals would want me to think, I like to think that there are two types of Muslims: 1. Violent Jehadis, who love to kill and destroy, and 2. Moderates, who tell the world why the Jehadis are right.

  • Beth

    I don't get it. Why isn't this law of the Constitution being applied?….

    Article. III. Section. 3.

    Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

    Why aren't 'terrorists' being tried for treason? Why have the Constitution if that law is not going to be applied?

    Where are the attorneys at?

    • PatriotX

      Exactly the point I was trying to make earlier in my conversation with someone. All we have to do is enforce this document that so many people have sacrificed, toiled and bled for. However, first we must get the message our resolve to those that wish this nation harm and with the present administration it’s never going to happen. I hate to say it, but it seems that our option for now, is to hang on, insure that those in office won’t make it worse and pray that this country won’t re-elect the same idiots who’s lips are superglued to the butts of our enemies.

  • Beth

    btw…..'Moderate' muslims still bring THAT book with them….and it is their koran that is the problem.

    "Freedom of speech" and "freedom of religion" —NEVER— included the right to incite the masses into violence. In fact there are laws against such an act.

    Where is the wisdom in the legal system of America? or have they all turned into cowards?

  • WilliamJamesWard

    It's not the liars, cheats, rapists, pedophile and slaver Muslims but the violent killers
    that are over the top, the rest are only moderately evil but quiet as to the actions
    of those they support with finances and Mosques of operation. Silence is complicit
    and works towards invisibility, we are not to see into them but when our people die,
    buildings burn, armies sent overseas, trillions of dollars lost let's fake the truth and
    say it is not all of them. Islam is the enemy of America and leftists enable them into
    our lives, government and establishment operations to subvert, debase and plan
    our destruction. Those in Government who openly deal with these people are
    Obama and Clinton, their administrations and almost all Democrats, what do we
    have to worry about?………………………………..William

  • PatriotX

    ObamaYoMama, Seriously? Really? You’re blinded by your own deluded sense of reality. I never said I was an authority on Islam however I am more in tuned to the real world and how we deal with it. So, LOL, tell me what’s your plan in getting rid of all those in the U.S. who follow Islam. Tell me of your brilliant plan of purging our country of those who follow this ideology. Are we going to get rid of them and their families too? What about those who, later, start to study or follow the religion? Are we going to start intelligence dossiers on those caught with the Koran? Are we going to ban the Koran too? Please, I’m all ears, solve our problems.

    All we have to do is enforce the constitution and alot of this goes away but first we need a Commander in Chief that actually believes in the constitution. We need to make people aware of the constitution’s significance.

    Not everyone who does not think like you do is “oblivious” or a victim of PC.

  • Beth

    PatriotX – "Are we going to ban the Koran too?"

    Actually, there are laws that already exist for condemning the koran for its teachings (incitement to commit mass murder, being one of them). btw….there is not one single sentence that exists in the New Testament that teaches humans to be violent with each other – just for the record (rightfully keeping the focus on the koran – where it belongs).

    What's missing, are leaders who will enforce those laws. In the end – it's up to the voters. My desire is that more Americans will rise up and say "No more" – with their votes.

    Time will tell.

    Laura,

    I doubt is any Front Page bloggers read this link, albeit most have read parts of the Qu'ran and intensely dislike it.

    That said, do not bother wasting your time and space.
