The question of ‘should we stay or should we go’ might be easier to answer if we took a look at the larger picture. What are groups like al Qaeda up to in other parts of the world, and what are we doing to stop them?
What is al Qaeda doing in America? Here’s a film of our local Queens-based al Qaeda, legally recruiting mujahideen in New York City.
This group, Al Muhajiroun (or the “Islamic Thinkers Society”) has direct connections to al Qaeda, which is why the British government attempted to ban the group and deport its leaders. Unfortunately, the group still exists there under a different name.
Al Muhajiroun is also connected to the “nonviolent” and apparently moderate Islamic Circle of North America which operates out of Jamaica, Queens. According to Daniel Pipes, ICNA’s Young Muslim Society is tied to the Islamic Thinkers. The Muslim American Society merged with ICNA in 2002 .
According to the Chicago Times the Muslim American Society is also connected to the “nonviolent” branch of Islamism, the Muslim Brotherhood.
Non-violent Islamists and violent ones, joining hands and singing in harmony. Don’t you just want to buy them a Coke?
Our Queens based al Qaeda has many connections, which is one reason why they’re able to terrorize neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Queens.
The Queens chapter of an international jihadist group – founded by the Brooklyn College grad accused of being an al Qaeda sympathizer – is terrorizing people in the extremist’s old stomping grounds, residents said yesterday.
“They have a lot of hatred [but] the police said they can’t do anything about them,” Kana Chauhan, president of the Jackson Heights Merchants Association, said of the radical group Al Muhajiroun.
The organization is tied to suspected terrorist ally Syed “Fahad” Hashmi, a disciple of Syrian cleric Omar Bakri who was banned from speaking on English college campuses.
The Queens-bred Hashmi, who was arrested in London Wednesday on charges he moved funds and military gear to notorious terror camps in Pakistan, founded the local chapter of the extremist group. Each weekend, it sets up its hate-spewing operation on 37th Avenue and 74th Street.
“They’re against America, they make trouble,” local merchant Amarjit Singh said. “Whatever they say is really nasty.”
The other reason why our local al Qaeda are able to terrorize these neighborhoods? “the police said they can’t do anything about them…”
Islamists have also acheived victories in Somalia and in Thailand. We haven’t done much to stop them.
The Islamist-sponsored genocide in the Sudan is continuing without much of an effort from us to stop it.
Most aggressors wage war because they want to get more money and land. If we ignore Islamist prattle about jihad, terrorism, Muslim rights, humilitation, fatwas, moderation, nukes, violence vs. nonviolence, we’ll see that Islamists are all united behind one goal – to dominate us.
We can only win the war by showing them that we are capable of dominating them. Which we are.
Do our actions, in and out of Iraq, demonstrate that?
