But no one dares look into the doctrine and ideology that gives rise to these plots. To do that makes you part of the problem, a racistislamophobicantimuslimbigot, a “right-wing extremist.” To call on the mosques to work toward real reform and teach against this ideology in an honest manner makes you “part of the problem.” And so one thing Bratton can count on is that there will be many, many more plots.

NYC-Police-Chief-Bratton

“More than 20 terror plots foiled in New York: Police chief,” AFP, September 9, 2015 (thanks to Blazing Cat Fur):

WASHINGTON: More than 20 terror plots have been foiled in New York since the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, according to the city’s police chief on Tuesday (Sep 8), who said the risk of another devastating attack remains “greater than ever”.

Speaking before a hearing of the House Committee on Homeland Security, New York City Police Chief Bill Bratton warned of “multiple hazards” on the terrorism front, from “lone wolf” attackers to radicalised supporters of the brand of Islam espoused by Islamic State (IS).

“Since September 11, 2001, there have been more than 20 terrorist plots against New York City,” Bratton said. “So far they have been thwarted.”

He added, however, that “in many respects, we currently face a greater likelihood of attack than we have seen in years”.

On Friday, New York marks the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks that levelled the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, claiming 2,753 lives, in addition to deadly attacks on the Pentagon and on a commercial airplane that crashed in rural Pennsylvania the same day.

    Before I read Atlas Shrugs, I look at Drudge, CNN, BBC and a couple of regional newspapers, I didn’t see this story which should be the topic of the day…. what is wrong with this country?

    The further away we get from 9-11, the closer we get to 9-10.

    • AnneM040359

      You got that right!

  • AnneM040359

    The ironic thing is that with the recent bad deal with the Iran nuclear treaty, I am afraid we are back to 9/10 again.

  • Kook of the East

    I warn my children via text to be more aware on the anniversaries of infamous islamic terror dates. They attend college in large cities that I fear may be targets. They think I’m a kook.
    I hope that tomorrow is an uneventful day for us.

      Kook, I am with you. My 26 year old, who remembers well 9-11, is on her way to NYC tonight from ATL to see some shows and take a long weekend. I didn’t even need to say anything to her, but posted about the Muslim parade scheduled for Saturday on my FB page, and she calls me, all upset with ME. For “ruining” her trip!!!! PS her dad has been in Afghanistan three times and Iraq once!

      • disqus_HlH4Faibhw

        Why would posting about the muslim day parade ruin her trip? She doesn’t have to attend…..

      Willful Ignorance. They’ll be blindsided like a Quarterback by a linebacker.

      • Kook of the East

        No, they will not. Even though they may roll their eyes and think I’m a kook, I’ve planted the seed. It’s enough that if they see a gaggle of muslims, they will cross they street. They one day will be where I am with islam. I predict that they will be here sooner.

        • donemyhomework

          Glad to hear it. All you have to do is look at the news that they don’t show you in America..

    The white wash-house should stop supporting Muhammad’s Jihadism as it’s sadist incitement against atheism can’t be altered while secular governments for example the Syrian government & Army can be altered into submission to Globalfirm: globalism, atheism, human rights & ecology, English.

    Muslim Invasion
    WH has said it is letting 10,000 refugees into the
    U.S. Just what we need another 10,000 man army of muslems raping killing

    RacistAntiMuslimislamophoBigOt: RAMBO

    look at the acronym I created. I don’t know… Since they insist on calling us that… Maybe we ought to live up to the moniker. I guess they don’t like Rambo.. someone who was willing to defend himself. Can anyone imagine him letting islamofascists take over?

    • G. Gardiner

      Yes! RAMBO. OK he’s a fictional character but it’s the idea behind him that counts. Rambo stood up to injustice.

    “But no one dares look into the doctrine and ideology that gives rise to these plots.”

    No, and if they did they’d be astonished. Astonished that grown ups in 2015 can swallow children’s fairytales whole.

    Imagine being a child and hearing that a “holy man” named Muhammad flew to heaven on a winged horse. You’d be skeptical, right? And who could blame you? You remember those crazy kids’ stories you heard about magic carpets.

    But then your teacher reads from the Koran. You learn how Allah gave King Solomon a flying carpet that was more than supersonic—he could cover in less than a day what would take a fast camel two months—and your young mind thinks: “Hey, no s**t!”

    From there it’s a short step to swallowing the rest of the insanity contained in the Koran. Hot heavenly houris? Where’s that bomb-making manual?

    In short: until rationally minded people can convince young Muslims that their imams are feeding them dangerous nonsense, the world will be an unsafe place.

    It’s the Koran, stupid.

    If America somehow survives Barack Obama and, I certainly doubt it, America needs to immediately start a military buildup as great or greater than WWII. We need to become Fortress America and never ever allow another Barack Obama.

    Barack Obama has been able to do what no enemy has been able to do, strip this nation of it’s glory and integrity. The rest of the World does not respect us and some are working to destroy us. Others are planning on taking weaker nations.

    Barack Obama has been able to undue every good thing America has done. We will have to basically start over from scratch. many will die and many have died because of Barack Obama. He is our Joseph Stalin and, like The Soviet Union purge him from our History.
