• Radical Islam, Still a Threat – Though Some Americans May Not Think So

    Surge Summary: COVID-19 has not removed the threat of radical Islam to American security. New evidence from last year’s Pensacola shooting confirms it. Unfortunately, some Americans – including the daughter of Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar – appear to consider America a greater purveyor or evil on the earth.

    While Covid is dominating the headlines, it’s important to recognize that radical Islam remains a threat to our homeland.  We got a stark reminder of that this morning.

    Attorney General William Barr and FBI Director Christopher Wray announced this morning that Mohammed Alshamrani, the Saudi terrorist who killed three U.S. sailors at Naval Air Station Pensacola last year, had “significant ties to Al Qaeda . . . not only before the attack but before he even arrived in the United States.”

    The FBI was able to crack at least one of two smartphones Alshamrani had during the attack on the base.  He tried to destroy them, and even shot one of the phones. Unfortunately, Apple refused to help the FBI unlock the phones.

    Barr said that Alshamrani was radicalized in 2015 and joined the Saudi Air Force “in order to carry out a ‘special operation.'”

    She Said What?!

    You know who Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is.  She’s a Somali refugee who was rescued from a Kenyan camp and came to the United States with her family when she was 10.

    I don’t know what was going on in her life as she grew up here, but she’s vying to be the worst ingrate on the American scene.  She’s devoted her entire adult life to trashing the country that saved her, the nation where she managed to go from refugee camp to Congress.  What more was she expecting?

    You probably don’t know who Isra Hirsi is.  She’s a 17 year-old environmental activist, co-founder of the radical green group U.S. Climate Strike.  She’s also an avowed communist.  On her twitter profile, she declared, “Yes I am 17 and I hate capitalism.”

    And she’s also Ilhan Omar’s daughter.  Apparently, Omar has managed to instill her anti-Americanism in her daughter.

    Hirsi went on Tik Tok a couple of days ago and called U.S. soldiers “bitches” and baby killers.  How ironic that she chose a social media platform that is controlled by communist Chinese interests to disparage U.S. soldiers.  Sadly, millions of young Americans use Tik Tok.  (Parents, wake up!)

    It was particularly disgusting and ironic that she was insulting the brave young men and women who protect her while children are being murdered.  There was a vicious attack on a maternity ward in Afghanistan recently.  The radical Islamists killed mothers and their new born babies.

    Outside of abortion clinics in the western world, the biggest killers of babies and children are radical Islamists.  They don’t do it by accident, which sometimes happens in war.  They do it intentionally to inflict terror.  (Herehere and here.)

    Isra Hirsi should take a deep breath before accusing the U.S. military of doing what the most radical of her co-religionists routinely engage in around the world.

    By the way, I’m waiting for Hirsi to post a Tik Tok rant condemning China for holding millions of Muslims in concentration camps.
