As you’re reading this, I’m probably turning over for a little more sleep. Not that I decided to sleep in this Saturday morning, rather I just got in from a night patrol ride-along with the men and women of the Northeast Division of Dallas Police Department. These are the members of the “Thin Blue Line” who safeguard the community in which I live. I used to do ride-alongs with the law enforcement units in South Florida. No need to change that now. I can’t think of any better way to show my appreciation for what these every day brave men and women do to safeguard our streets — and as we know, they’re on the front lines of the fight against Islamic terrorism.
And once again, were reminded of this dark specter.
As reported yesterday by the UK Mirror, “At least eight [islamic] terrorist gunmen ‘shouting “Allahu Akbar”‘…stormed a restaurant in Bangladesh taking a number of people hostage, including “several” foreigners.
As the siege ended, CNN reported, Bangladeshi troops rescued at least 13 hostages and shot dead six gunmen Saturday, ending an overnight siege at a cafe in Dhaka, officials said.
“The operation is over,” said Brig. Gen. Mujibur Rahman, who was overseeing the troops in the rescue effort at Holey Artisan Bakery, which was raided by gunmen Friday night.
Its unclear how many people the gunmen seized in the cafe at a diplomatic zone, but Rahman said 14 hostages were rescued.
Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina provided a different number.
“We were able to save 13 people … and of these terrorists six of them died on the spot, they died right there,” Hasina said at a news conference.
She said one of the terrorists was captured alive.
ISIS has claimed responsibility for the terror attack, according to its media branch, Amaq. Some U.S. officials have cast doubt on the claim.
Our law enforcement officers need our wholehearted support because we live in a new era. This is why our law-abiding citizens need to be armed, because we live in a new time. Then again, perhaps Bangladesh has an issue with gun and sword control. We now know two people were killed, all foreigners, and mostly with “sharp weapons.”
This is a different era, and it’s not about negotiating — you cannot negotiate with an Islamic terrorist. You can only kill them. Furthermore, this is still the season of Ramadan, therefore, to kill infidels and then be killed, all in the name of Islam and Allah affords “shaheed” status. I suppose these savages believe they will be rewarded with a double count of virgins, 144, instead of the basic 72.
But what is just unconscionable is the typical obfuscation by our own Obama administration. “The U.S. State Department said it was too early to say who was involved or what the motivation might be, but it confirmed that all Americans working at the U.S. mission there had been accounted for.
State Department spokesman John Kirby told a press briefing: “We have accounted for all Americans working for the chief of mission authority.” He said the situation was “very fluid, very live.” Kirby was however unable to confirm whether private U.S. citizens were caught up in a “hostage situation.”
The White House said President Barack Obama has been briefed on the ongoing situation. Bangladesh has seen an increase in militant Islamist violence over the last year. Deadly attacks have been mounted against atheists and members of religious minorities in the mostly Muslim country of 160 million people, with attackers often using machetes.”
Forgive me, but what special kind of stupid is retired Navy Admiral John Kirby? We know these cheeky fellas were shouting “Allahu Akbar” and an ISIS affiliated group has claimed responsibility. Hello, McFly, what more does one need to know?
This dismissal and denial of fact is the exact reason why the Islamic jihadists continue to attack and kill innocents. Their motivation is clear: they are Islamic terrorists and they want to kill infidels — as anyone can assess the increase of militant Islamist activity. And for President Obama, yeah, they ARE Islamic and they’ve made this a religious conflagration clearly because of who they assault — non-Muslims and non-compliant Muslims. Pretty simple to grasp their motivation if you were to pull your head out of your fourth point of contact, and listen to them tell you their motivation.
Orlando, Istanbul, Bangladesh — and Obama’s response is gun control, climate change (did y’all see that wimpy handshake with Trudeau?) and lifting bans on individuals suffering from the mental condition of gender dysphoria to serve openly in the military –CPL Klinger would be happy.
Heck, the top law enforcement officer in America, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, believes we need more compassion, unity and love as the best response to these attacks, and the barbarians who conduct them. Yesterday we shared the ISIS Directives for Christians in the territory they hold. Here in Western civilization we banter about with “profiling” having progressive socialists deem that as offensive — hey chuckleheads, it is called “trend analysis.”
Just remember, we still have some six months of Barack Obama and his impotent style of leadership, and the policy of weakness, appeasement, and acquiescence. How many more will unfortunately lose their lives because Obama created a void and allowed it to be filled by 7th century maniacal sociopaths. Yes, speaking truth to power and calling this enemy for what it is, militant Islamic jihadism, is necessary in order to come to terms with their motivations, goals, and objectives.
For those who don’t believe it necessary, you’re complicit enablers of this savagery and carnage.
