Here’s yet another frightening example of the rise of militant Islamism right here on our shores – near Boston (again)
As Fox News reports, “late last night, authorities in Massachusetts arrested a man in connection with a counterterror investigation hours after another man under surveillance by the Joint Terrorism Task Force was shot and killed after he refused to put down a military-style knife while approaching two officers.”
“Authorities identified the deceased man as 26-year-old Usaama Rahim, who was shot outside a CVS Pharmacy in Roslindale, Mass. at approximately 7 a.m. local time Tuesday. A law enforcement official with knowledge of the case told the Associated Press that Rahim had been making threats against law enforcement personnel.”
“Boston Police Commissioner William Evans told reporters that members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force approached Rahim to question him about “terrorist-related information” they had received when he moved toward officers with the knife.”
Fox says the ongoing terror investigation surrounded a plot to behead a police officer.
Another man, David Wright, was arrested by Boston Police and State Police just after midnight early Wednesday morning. FOX25 says his arrest is connected to Rahim’s deadly shooting.
“Police say the suspects involved in the investigation were planning an attack on officers. They said the investigation was into a potentially “ISIS inspired plot to harm law enforcement officials.”
“Commissioner Evans did not comment on the report that Rahim had been radicalized by ISIS, but said “Obviously, there was enough information there where we thought it was appropriate to question him about his doings…He was someone we were watching for quite a time.”
“Vincent Lisi, special agent in charge of the Boston FBI office, said authorities “don’t think there’s any concern for public safety out there right now.”
Yeah, he’s right. It’s really Islamophobic to report this. These are tiny isolated incidents that are really no cause for alarm. When ISIS encourages followers especially in the USA to attack law enforcement officers and military personnel, there’s no cause for concern, right?
We don’t really need to worry about that “jayvee” team over in Syria and Iraq and wherever they are. That’s just crazy talk.
Now about those Bruce Jenner pictures…
