The Islamic State’s (IS) ‘Amaq News Agency reported the June 3, 2017 vehicular and stabbing attacks in London, England were carried out by Muslim fighters. And what is motivating the Islamic State, jihadis native to Britian and ihadis in San Bernardino, Orlando, Chattanooga, Garland, New York, etc. What motivates the hundreds of thousands of Muslims waging jihad across the world? Islam.
Al Qaeda’s co-founder and former emir Osama bin Laden said: “It is a duty for the Umma with all its categories, men, women and youths, to give away themselves, their money, experiences and all types of material support…Jihad today is an imperative for every Muslim. The Umma will commit sin if it does not provide adequate material support for jihad.”
This gives you no small indication of what they are not telling us. And the only reason this little gem was released was because MI5 was hard pressed to explain how the Manchester bomber slipped through their fingers despite being known to them. Further, the FBI warned MI5 about Manchester bomber Salman Abedi in January (just as the Russians warned us about the Boston bombers previous to their attack. We did nothing , too).
Sixteen years after the September 11th attacks, this is where we are. And for the past 15 years, a handful of us have worked tirelessly to educate, warn and prepare freedom loving peoples of and for the threat through our activism, protests, conferences, free speech lawsuits, books, news websites etc.
For that we were smeared, attacked, our reputations destroyed. Multiple Islamic assassination plots against have been foiled. But still we soldiered on because we knew. We were right.
