The massacre in San Bernardino last month by Islamic terrorists Tashfeen Malik Sand yed Rizwan Farook shed a glaring light on the limitations of Homeland Security’s screening process for immigrants, refugees and even “fiancées” from countries associated with terror.
Thirty governors have now said they will not take Syrian “refugees” in defiance of President Obama’s plan to ship in tens of thousands. And of course Donald Trump generated hours of free air time for himself when he said he’d completely halt the entry of Muslims into the United States until we could sort out our system.
The problem is, as many have suspected, it may be already TOO late.
Case in point: On Friday, 24-year-old Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan faced a federal judge in Houston for the first time, after he was arrested Wednesday on three terror-related charges of assisting ISIS. He required a translator to communicate.
But here’s the terrifying kicker: He’s been in the United States since 2009.
According to ABC13 News, “Al Hardan is a Palestinian born in Iraq, but has lived among us since November 2, 2009 when he entered the United States as a refugee. He was also granted status as a permanent legal resident around August 22, 2011.
The man told the judge that his mother and father also live in Houston.
Prosecutors say Al Hardan has been assisting ISIS with material support and resources since at least May of 2014. He now faces three charges including the attempt to provide material support to ISIS, procurement of citizenship or naturalization unlawfully, and making false statements to investigators.
Al Hardan allegedly misrepresented himself as not having associations with any terrorist organization when prosecutors say he in fact was connected to members and sympathizers of ISIS throughout 2014.
The six-page indictment which was unsealed overnight also alleges that Al Hardan also stated he never received any type of weapons training. Prosecutors say that statement was false, and that Al Hardan had received training on how to fire an automatic machine gun.”
While prosecutors now believe he wasn’t planning a specific attack in the Houston area, I have to say that’s not particularly comforting.
This little cretin came to our country under the guise of needing “refuge” with his parents, clearly never assimilated and either from the very beginning or soon after, started working with radical jihadis and repeatedly lied about what he was up to.
We already know our screening process is broken – as Tashfeen Malik’s easy entry proves; we already know these people lie – as the concept of “dissimulation” or taqiyah as written in the Koran Sura 3:28
allows Muslims to conceal the truth from non-believers. And we know they’re already here, as the FBI has admitted it is investigating ISIS suspects in all 50 states.
Why in God’s name does our president want to bring in even more? (Nope, don’t answer that).
