List of Islamic Terror Attacks


Islamic Terror
on American Soil                               american-290

Following the horrific slaughter of thousands on 9/11, only one Muslim in America was killed in a vigilante “revenge” attack.  This was Waqar Hasan, a convenience store owner who was gunned down by Mark Anthony Stroman in Texas.

.

.

.

Hardly an average American, Stroman was a white supremacist with a felony criminal record who went on to shoot two more people in the following weeks.  However, he did claim to be motivated by anger after having watched the twin towers fall.

For anyone keeping score:

People killed by radical Muslims on 9/11: 2,996
Muslim-Americans killed “in revenge”: 1

Thankfully, an American jury sentenced Mark Stroman to death.  The same cannot be said of many Muslim terrorists, including Palestinian mass murderers who who kill children.  They are not only celebrated in some circles, but have even been invited to perform the Haj at Mecca – without a peep of protest from Muslim groups or individuals.

The overwhelming obsession with “Islamophobia” is not supported by a body count.  That may sound crass, but since 9/11, an additional 148 Americans have been killed in 51 separate acts of deadly Islamic terror or Islam-related honor killing in the United States.  Hundreds of mass murder plots have been thwarted or botched.  The real story is not “Islamophobia” but American tolerance – which rightly refuses to punish the individual based on group identity.

As the Muslim population increases in the United States, so too will the number of Islamic terror attacks.  This is because the pool from which the radicals recruit grows bigger.  Studies show that between 5 – 25% of Muslims in America believe that violence in defense of Islam is justified.  The number of potential terrorists therefore grows proportionately with the overall number, even if only a small minority actually plot terror.

Immigrants to America have killed and have plotted to kill.  However, the real threat comes from successive generations of Muslims living in the West, which have proven to be more radical and more dangerous than their parents.  Muslim immigration thus means that more Americans will eventually die.  The benefits that offset this reality are not entirely clear.

For anyone wondering about the history of deadly Islamic terror on American soil since 1972, here’s what we came up with:

SHARIA BLASPHEMY LAWS activated in America! Barack Hussein Obama bows to the Muslim world again, arrests ‘Innocence of Muslims’ filmmaker


Oh sure, they concocted a reason about the filmmaker’s alleged violation of some probation rule, but we all know this is the Muslim-in-Chief of the United States of America following orders from his Muslim benefactors, many of whom spoke at the UN this week, to punish the maker of the anti-Islam film.

Smoking Gun  The producer of the controversial anti-Islam film “Innocence of Muslims” has been arrested for violating terms of his probation and is set for an appearance this afternoon in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, is scheduled for an initial appearance before Judge Christina Snyder, who sentenced him in June 2010 following a bank fraud conviction.

Investigators have not yet provided details about how Nakoula allegedly violated probation, but it seems clear that his involvement in the “Innocence of Muslim” production is central to the government’s claim.

Included in his probation terms were prohibitions on his use of the Internet, unless he secured prior approval from his probation officer. Additionally, he was not to “use, for any purpose or in any manner, any name other than his/her true legal name or names without the prior written approval of the Probation Officer.”

While producing “Innocence of Muslims,” Nakoula repeatedly used the alias “Sam Bacile” (and other variants) in communications, online postings, and dealings with cast and crew working on the film.

Walid Shoebat alleges: Innocence of Muslims Film was Made by Terrorists

When it comes to the film Innocence of Muslims, our government and the media uses a narrative mired in contradictions and false statements provided by the filmmaker, who himself is an untrustworthy source. Court documents reveal that Nakoula Bacile Nakoula, producer of the movie Innocence of Muslims, partnered in a scheme with Eiad Salameh, my first cousin. Eiad is a Muslim terror supporter and is not an Egyptian Copt. Read More

[Editor’s Note: you guessed it…this is my opinion/view, and not necessarily that of local Act chapters or the National Office. We have here a case of Muslim prophesied “Sun of the West” in the Islamic Last Days prophecies…the “sun of the West” will be a world leader that will help strongly unite Muslims throughout the world…Is Obama doing what he can to make sure that Islamic Muslims are treated with more respect than anyone else in the world? Especially in the United States? This is a president that knew about the terrorist attacks that were going to happen the U.S. Consulate two days prior to the horrific, terroristic, Islamic event, but did nothing to it, other than post an apology the morning of the incident….hhhmmm, like he knew what their “excuse” was going to be…the movie and the American freedom of Speech…why else would he apologize for our freedom of speech rights prior to, or during the incident, before the American populace even knew about it, or about the apology?

This is not a political note…however, one must look at the facts…Obama has done nothing for the American populace globally, apologize to Muslims for American freedoms, shun our greatest ally (Israel, the primary reason we became a free nation due to their helping and financing the Revolutionary War), take out anything in government documents that say the phrase “Radical/Fanatical Islam”, destroy the American economy/dollar (this is to help with the Islamic End Times prophecy that the Americans will become an Islamic country, this would happen because the dollar will be so dead, that the interest would kill us, so we would opt for becoming a Muslim so we would not have to pay interest), cater to the Muslim Brotherhood, including going against his Constitutional Oath that he had to make when he took office…if you do the math, he is a Muslim that is trying to kill America and make it an Islamic country…You make the vote on who you want to become president next year…I report…you decide…

…End Times…


[Editor’s Note: Once again, this is my opinion, not that necessarily of any local chapters or nation office of Act for America], In the events that have happened in the last few days, Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood president Morsi (thanks to Muslim Brotherhood operative Barack Hussein Obama) stated that he is against the murders of the Ambassadors, but naturally Morsi is going to say that he had nothing to do with this…although he has stated in the past that he hates America and Israel, and knowing that he is part of the Muslim Brotherhood’s global regime in trying to get rid of the “great satan” (America) and the “little satan” (Israel). Also knowing that he has full “authority” from allah to lie or commit taqiyya to advance Islam, then he is going to try and buffalo the world. As has been proven in the past, Muslim leaders say one thing to the West so make them feel good about Islam, but in Arabic, say what is/was their true intent.

There is a lot of unconfirmed news going around that not only did Morsi know about this, he was part of this as being a strict Islamic pusher, and the police did nothing to stop it. It is also rumored right now that Ms. Clinton and Mr. Obama knew it was going to happen up to 48 hours in advance, but they did not want to do anything either because they wanted a lesson to be learned…and that lesson was not to talk bad about Islam.

Now, with Obama knowing that he is the Islamic prophesied “Sun of the West” or the one that helps unit Islam throughout the world, and he possibly feels he is the Mahdi, he is not going to do anything concerning these Islamic terroristic events…the U.S. Embassy being attacked in Libya and Cairo on the 11th, which was pre-planned, and according to U.S. laws, is an actual ACT OF WAR, but also currently Islamic terrorist attacks on the Embassies of Yemen, and violent protests outside of U.S. Embassies in Sudan, Morocco, Tunisia, and suspicious envelopes being sent to the U.S. Consulate in Germany, it seems that violent jihad has started against the West.

If we did not have a Muslim President that worked for the Muslim Brotherhood, then we would have started looking at going to war with Egypt and Libya, or at least stopping the 2 billion dollars a year, at taxpayer’s expense, financial aid, but a “good” Muslim will be looked down upon from not only fellow Muslims, but also from allah, so Obama isn’t going to do anything that will put his 72 Virginians…I mean, virgins, in jeopardy, you see, contrary to what people think…jihad isn’t only killing people, jihad is also supporting them, giving them money, giving them backing, taking care of the “martyr’s” families, indoctrinating infidels…and Obama is doing as much non-violent jihad as he can, and he doesn’t want to mess that up with allah.

DO NOT GET ME WRONG…and I can speak for local Act chapters, as well as for the Nation Office on this…WE DO NOT CONDONE ANYTHING LIKE THE MOVIE ( I will not even link the movie here because it is such a sarcastic piece of garbage, it isn’t worth anyone’s time) that supposedly upset the tolerant and peaceful religion of Islam (although originally it was in the news that the Islamic radicals I meant misunderstanders, wanted the US to release the blind sheik from the 1993 World Trade center bombing), nor anything like burning the Qur’an like has happened from individuals in the past, but let’s face it…hate crimes are, in essence, pro Muslim-anti anything else discrimination laws…so is the Islamic “religion”. You are a Muslim and say that Jews use Muslim blood in their Matzo bread for Passover (a fact that is, and never has been true), and the Jewish folks don’t go out killing Muslims for saying that, and in the U.S., Muslims aren’t arrested for inciting hate crimes against Zionism, but a kafir says anything about Mohammad that is true from history, or from his own words, like he is a pedophile, or a liar, or a pervert, or anything, than the Muslim world is enraged and kills people and in the U.S., you are blamed for the violence…how does this work? Where is the equality in this, where is the tolerance in Islam? Where is justice? Where is non-discrimination? Oh never mind, forgot Mohammad said you can be discriminating against infidels and kafirs…and Obama makes sure he fulfills his prophets’ will.

I want to end my sermon with this…the Biblical end time is here, kafirs in general, but “children of the book” specifically will be persecuted here in the U.S. shortly. Especially if Obama wins the elections, he will help the Muslim Brotherhood win American soil as an Islamic victory, and thus, Christians and Jews will be greatly persecuted…the Islamic Mahdi or, in reality, according to Revelation and Daniel in the Bible, the anti-Christ is the exact same person…just looked at on different sides of the wheel…I tell you this so you think about what you’re going to do when that happens, whether Obama gets re-elected or not, whether he is the anti-Christ or not, (there will be one, regardless of who it is, and the Bible points out that it will be an Islamic global leader). I strongly suggest you bow your head and ask Jesus Christ (not Isa) to come into your heart and to forgive you of your sins. Then you must start to change your life and gear your life towards Him. I strongly recommend you start going to a Holy Spirit filled, Evangelical church, and talk with the pastor to see what you can do to start to learn more about Christ.

Thank you for your time…and I pray that God Almighty, Yeshua Elohim, richly bless you and keep you safe from the Prince of Persia spirit that is quickly taking over the world!

Mosques as centers for jihad


Monday, 06 June 2011 12:08

In Brigitte Gabriel’s first best-selling book, Because They Hate, she cited a study of materials obtained from dozens of leading mosques across America. The materials were vitriolic, anti-Semitic, anti-democracy, and filled with hate and calls for jihad.

As Andrew Bostom reveals in his recent column below (highlights added), the situation today is far worse than it was just five years ago.

We strongly urge you to read the entire column and forward this to everyone you know. People need to know that eight years ago 81% of Muslims surveyed in the Detroit area agreed with the statement that sharia law should be imposed in Muslim countries—including 59% who STRONGLY agreed.

Care to guess how many of them would support imposing sharia law in America?

Mosques as Barracks in America

Posted By Andrew Bostom On June 5, 2011

The Islamic Center of Toledo Mosque and Minarets

Cross-posted at The American Thinker [2]

Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan represents the triumphant Janus-faced approach to the fundamentalist global “Islamic revival.” He and his pious forbears have now completed dismantling Turkey’s secular experiment, and achieved the full-throated re-Islamization of Turkish society, an insidious process begun already [3] within the decade after Ataturk’s death, in 1938. When currying favor with gullible Western audiences, Erdogan burbles disingenuous ecumenical platitudes about the “Alliance of Civilizations.” But in reality, this is an Islamization campaign [4] promoted by the Organization of the Islamic Conference, notably Saudi Arabia, which rewarded [5] Erdogan, for his role in the Alliance, specifically, as “services to Islam,” with the “King Faisal International Prize,” considered the “Nobel prize” of the Arab world. Regardless, Erdogan has always aroused his Muslim constituencies by brazenly appealing to their deep-seated jihadist sentiments as he did while mayor of Istanbul, in 1997, delivering a fiery speech that reminded the masses of these words from the poem “The Soldier’s Prayer,” written (in 1912) by Turkish nationalist poet Ziya Gokalp:

The minarets are our bayonets, the domes our helmets, the mosques our barracks and the faithful our army.

Cited [6] appropriately by successful [7] opponents of minaret construction in Switzerland [6], such rhetoric should now resonate uncomfortably in America with the online release [8] Monday June 6, 2011 of alarming survey data from a representative national sample of US mosques.

During August 2007, the New York City Police Department (NYPD) released “Radicalization in the West — The Homegrown Threat.” This insightful 90-page report [9] evaluated the threat that had become apparent since 9/11/2001, analyzing the roots of recent terror plots in the United States, from Lackawanna in upstate New York to Portland, Ore., to Fort Dix, NJ. Based upon these case-study analyses of individuals arrested for jihadist activity, the authors concluded [9] that the “journey” of radicalization that produces homegrown jihadists began in so-called “Salafist” (“fundamentalist” to non-Muslims) mosques characterized by high levels of Sharia—Islamic Law—adherence. The landmark study just published, “Sharia and Violence in American Mosques” (Kedar M, Yerushalmi D. The Middle East Quarterly, Summer 2011, Vol. 18, No. 3, pp. 59-72) sought to expand considerably upon the NYPD’s post-hoc, case study approach [9]—systematically gathering objective survey data, with much greater methodological rigor—and address these two a priori questions: I) Is there a robust association between observable measures of religious devotion, coupled to Sharia-adherence in US mosques, and the presence of violence-sanctioning materials at these mosques?; and II) Is there a robust association between the presence of violence-sanctioning materials at a mosque, and the advocacy of jihadism by the mosque’s leadership via recommending the study of these materials, or other manifest behaviors?

Full details of the sampling methodology, extracts of representative jihad [10] promoting materials (texts), and specific Sharia-compliant behaviors recorded, are provided in the accompanying appendices, reproduced from the full study (which will be available here [8] 6/6/11). In brief, survey data were collected from a nationally representative, random statistical sample of 100 US mosques, covering 14 states, and the District of Columbia. This concise overview of the basic data collection procedures—including a self-critical, honest caveat by the authors about “completeness” of the available information on US mosque locations—is reproduced verbatim from the report (p. 68):

A surveyor visited a subject mosque in order: (a) to observe and record 12 Sharia-adherent behaviors of the worshipers and the imam (or lay leader); (b) to observe whether the mosque contained the selected materials rated as moderate and severe; (c) to observe whether the mosque contained materials promoting, praising, or supporting violence or violent jihad; and (d) to observe whether the mosque contained materials indicating the mosque had invited guest speakers known to have promoted violent jihad. Thus, the survey only examined the presence of Sharia-adherent behaviors, the presence of violence positive materials in mosques, whether an imam would promote the study of violence-positive materials, and whether a mosque was used as a forum to promote violent jihad. Since there is no central body to which all mosques belong, it was difficult to ascertain that the sampling universe list was complete. This may have introduced bias into the sampling although the authors find no evidence of any systemic distortions.

The study’s results provide clear—and ominous—affirmative answers to the a priori questions posed. Sharia-adherence was strongly associated with the presence of jihad-violence sanctioning materials, and the presence of jihad-violence sanctioning materials was in turn robustly associated with advocacy of jihadism by mosque imams—religious leaders. This key summary finding was highlighted by the authors:

…51 percent of mosques had texts that either advocated the use of violence in the pursuit of a Shari‘a-based political order or advocated violent jihad as a duty that should be of paramount importance to a Muslim; 30 percent had only texts that were moderately supportive of violence like the Tafsir Ibn Kathir and Fiqh as-Sunna; 19 percent had no violent texts at all.

Thus 81% of this statistical sample representative of US mosques were deemed as moderately (30%) to highly (51%) supportive of promulgating jihad violence to impose Shari’a.

Additional profoundly troubling findings emerge when the data are explored in depth beyond these summary observations. For example, only 4.7% of Muslim worshippers attended mosques where jihadist materials were not provided because Sharia-compliant mosques promoting jihad were the most heavily attended. The authors also describe these specific details indicating that the preponderance of US mosques sanction jihad terrorism and its ultimate goal of a Caliphate [10] (i.e., the transnational imposition of strict Islamic law in current Muslim nations, and ultimately global imposition of Islamic Law, including in the US), if one includes advocacy of financial support for this sacralized violence (from pp. 67-69).

The survey found a strong correlation between the presence of severe violence-promoting literature and mosques featuring written, audio, and video materials that actually promoted such acts. By promotion of jihad, the study included literature encouraging worshipers to engage in terrorist activity, to provide financial support to jihadists, and to promote the establishment of a caliphate in the United States. These materials also explicitly praised acts of terror against the West; praised symbols or role models of violent jihad; promoted the use of force, terror, war, and violence to implement the Sharia; emphasized the inferiority of non-Muslim life; promoted hatred and intolerance toward non-Muslims or notional Muslims; and endorsed inflammatory materials with anti-U.S. views… [O]f the 51 mosques that contained severe materials, 100 percent were led by imams who recommended that worshipers study texts that promote violence.[M]osques containing violence positive materials were substantially more likely to include materials promoting financial support of terror than mosques that did not contain such texts. A disturbing 98 percent of mosques with severe texts included materials promoting financial support of terror. Those with only moderate rated materials on site were not markedly different, with 97 percent providing such materials.

These results were comparable when using other indicators of jihad promotion. Thus, 98 percent of mosques that contained severe-rated literature included materials promoting establishing an Islamic caliphate in the United States as did 97 percent of mosques containing only moderate rated materials.

These are the hard data that make plain why the “see no Sharia [11] in America” mindslaughter [12] redolent across the political spectrum amongst our policymaking, academic, and journalistic elites, is so dangerously delusive.
