What an incredible ending to a tumultuous first week of 2016. I don’t think Homer could have written a better tragedy. To close out the week, we learn of a police raid at an apartment in Brussels, Belgium to find an Islamic terrorist bomb making factory. ISIS declares a definitive warning to the global Jewish community stating “they are next” — and laid claim to a terror attack in Cairo, Egypt.
But it’s what happened here in America that just has me reeling. First of all, we learned once again that America doesn’t have a “gun control” issue but a domestic Islamic jihadist problem. Two individuals were arrested for providing support to ISIS and Islamic terrorism — one in Sacramento, California and the other in Houston, Texas. As a matter of fact, the individual arrested in Sacramento had already traveled to Syria to fight with ISIS, and was seeking to return. It appears the Obama administration hasn’t learned anything since 2009 when Carlos Bledsoe of Memphis shot two Soldiers in Little Rock Arkansas; one lost his life.
And then, the same night President Obama was conducting a town hall meeting on CNN about gun control, it happened again.
As reported by Fox News, “The man caught in surveillance footage ambushing a Philadelphia officer in a squad car, shooting him multiple times, claimed he acted “in the name of Islam,” police said at a news conference Friday.
The suspect’s gun, a 9mm Glock 17, had been stolen from police in 2013 [it was reported], Commissioner Richard Ross said.
The suspect, 30-year-old Edward Archer, told homicide investigators he “pledges his allegiance to Islamic State, he follows Allah, and that is the reason he was called upon to do this.
The suspect told police his attack was inspired by the police upholding laws that are contrary to the teachings of the Koran — could he have been referring to Islamic jurisprudence aka Sharia law?
What was utterly amazing — actually stupefying — was the statement from Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney at the press conference:
“In no way shape or form does anyone in this room believe that Islam or the teaching of Islam has anything to do with what you’ve seen on the screen.” Mayor Kenney said of the shooting, “It is abhorrent. It is terrible and it does not represent the religion in any way, shape or form or any of its teachings.” He continued, “This is a criminal with a stolen gun who tried to kill one of our officers. It has nothing to do with being a Muslim or following the Islamic faith.”
This mayor should be removed from office for speaking such an absurdity.
Therein lies the problem with liberal progressive socialists being in positions of power at this time. We have an Islamic jihadist who confesses exactly why he charged a police cruiser and fired some 13 shots at an officer, striking him three times. And here comes this mayor telling us all what this jihadist’s motive was?
This is no different from Barack Obama who, after the Islamic terror attack in San Bernardino is advocating for stricter gun control and background checks. Obama and Kenney represent a dangerous delusional state that will cause more Americans to be attacked. Obama seeks to limit Americans’ ability to defend themselves, as he releases more criminals and unlawful enemy combatants. And Kenney, like New York City’s Bill de Blasio, continue to play this insidious politically-correct game of Islamapoligism that dismisses the enemy and treats them as common criminals.
What Edward Archer did, just as the Islamic jihadist in Chattanooga, has everything to do with Islam — and you know what? Whom shall we believe, the person who shot Officer Hartnett, or some foolish progressive leftist such as Kenney?
When ISIS reads from the Koran before raping young girls, well, that has everything to do with Islam and the onus is not on us to deny it. The responsibility lies with Muslims to reform their religion and stand with liberty-loving people — such is what Dr. Zhudi Jasser does, and he has death threats levied against him.
I just have to ask, how many of you have seen the documentary film, “Honor Diaries?” Now, ask yourself why is it that a group like the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) seeks to block the showing of that film? And right along with Kenney, we shared with you HR 569, introduced by House Democrats, that would criminally punish anyone expressing “offensive” or “hateful” words towards Islam, just like UN Resolution 16/18.
This is why we must acknowledge there is an unholy alliance between liberal progressive socialists and Islamo-fascists. Yep, I best be careful because people like Kenney and Obama would have me prosecuted for the words written here.
Laugh as you may, but we already shared the words of Attorney General Loretta Lynch who, the day after the horrific attack in San Bernardino, California, pledged to a Muslim advocacy and lobbying group that she would take aggressive action against anyone who used “anti-Muslim rhetoric” that “edges toward violence.”
Lynch said her “greatest fear” is the “incredibly disturbing rise of anti-Muslim rhetoric” in America and vowed to prosecute any guilty of what she deemed violence-inspiring speech.
The real issue, as we close out this chaotic first week in 2016, is not that Officer Hartnett was shot. The real issue is the response of liberal progressives, the Democrat Party, to Islamic terror attacks, abroad and here. They cannot bring themselves to declare who the enemy is. And even when the enemy tells us who they are and why they take their actions, as typical of liberal leftists, they tell the Islamic jihadists no, this is REALLY why you’re oppressed.
They blame climate change. They blame poverty. They blame a lack of jobs and opportunities. They blame GITMO. They blame America. They blame Bush. Heck, the liberal left even blames you and me, referring to us with the inane term created by stealth Islamists, “Islamophobia.” Doggone, the mayor in Cologne, Germany blamed the women for being sexually assaulted, groped, and raped — and issued a list of rules they should follow instead of damning to hell those savages.
Mayor Kenney looked the fool, stepping up to the podium and offering a clear example of dhimmitude by trying to contradict the confession of a man who shot his police officer. Mayor Kenney, like Obama, summoned more unrighteous indignation to apologize for Islam than anger for the officer’s shooting. It reminds me of Obama’s rant at the U.N. about a video in Benghazi and not defaming Mohammad.
And next week on Friday, the world will see what happened in those “13 Hours” in Benghazi, knowing it had nothing to do with a freaking video. Back then in September 2012, Obama went to bed and caught a flight to Las Vegas for a fundraiser. This is the shame of the left, the Democrats, and why in God’s name would anyone elect them and believe they will protect us from this enemy — who appears to be their ally?
