ISIS is here. The war is here. And these Muslim soldiers didn’t travel from the Middle East to get here. Like Garland, Boston, etc., these are American Muslims waging jihad in the cause of Islam and the caliphate.

Again and again, more daily news stories of Muslims in America going jihad. Here is a Muslim student majoring in electrical circuitry at Queens College.

I repeat myself again: why does the media ignore, censor this widespread understanding of Islam? Why are so many American, European, Canadian Muslims aligning and/or joining the Islamic State?

 And the trend now is not to go to Syria or Iraq, but to wage jihad in the homeland.

And while Muslim leaders pay lip service and mutter condemnation of the Islamic State, where are they teaching against the ideology that gave rise to it?

 Right now, nothing is being done to stop jihad recruiting in US mosques, even as several hundred young Muslims from the US have gone to wage jihad for the Islamic State.

“Student Plotted to Detonate Bomb in New York City, Authorities Say,” By Rebecca Davis O’Brien, Wall Street Journal, June 16, 2015
20-year-old man charged with conspiring to provide support to Islamic State
NEW YORK—Authorities have arrested a student at a college in the borough of Queens who they say was planning to build a bomb and detonate it in New York on behalf of Islamic State.

Munther Omar Saleh, 20 years old, was charged with conspiring to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization, according to a criminal complaint filed by prosecutors in federal court in Brooklyn. He and an unnamed co-conspirator were arrested on Saturday, the complaint said.

It wasn’t clear whether Mr. Saleh had a lawyer.

In May, Mr. Saleh, who was taking courses on electrical circuitry at a Queens college, began researching firearms, New York City landmarks and pressure-cooker bombs online and began working with the co-conspirator on plans to build an explosive device, officials said.

Authorities said Mr. Saleh had expressed support for Islamic State on Twitter, saying he thought al Qaeda was “getting too moderate,” praising Islamic State’s “quality fighters,” and hailing the January attack on the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris.

Mr. Saleh’s online activity also suggested that he translated materials disseminated by Islamic State from Arabic to English, according to the complaint.

Spokeswomen for the FBI and the U.S. attorney’s office in Brooklyn declined to comment on the case.

    As usual, Pamela is correct in saying “yesterday’s moderate is today’s headline”. Pamela, I hope I’ve quoted you correctly. As always, thanks for all you do each and every day.

    How do they get to a twenty year old, living in the first world and not some third world Islamic shithole? This kid was studying a science not learning the Koran word for word. This is the question that needs to be answered urgently.
    They are obviously winning on this front and it is here these murderers need to be defeated.

      It has been answered before. Just like the radicals of the 60’s and 70’s -this kid was most likely a low self esteem kid -so it tied into his sense of having control over his world, maybe even giving some payback and revenge to his perceived injustices. He does not seem like the other type, a narcissist psycho.. but he could have gotten there with Islam holding his hand.

    • He’s going to school to learn how to build sophisticated bombs and whatnot. To do otherwise is against the teachings of Islam!

  • Hey libtards — I’m STILL waiting for you to show me a single “peaceful” Muslim.

  • SCREW SOCIALISM

    Social Media needs to be monitored to find jihadi pigs BEFORE they kill..

    Jihadi pigs need to be isolated from the general population liked Ebola.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      Muslims don’t need social media to figure out iSSlam commands its followers to kill the unbeliever, it’s all spelt right out for them in the holy books of iSSlam as well as in the actions and deeds of its most revered and holy psychopath.
