Consequences– of Ignoring Islamo-Fascism– Jihad in the West

Caroline Glick writes an interesting piece about Jihad’s Campus Collaborators and discussed the phenomena of Muslims in the US committing violence in the name of Jihad and many ignoring the roots of their actions, preferring to ascribe it to “psychiatric” issues or “acting alone”.

Worth reading at townhall… . Brief excerpt to follow:

A poll published last month by Britain’s Policy Exchange think tank bore out the poisonous impact this indoctrination has had on young Muslims in the country. Thirty-seven percent of British Muslims between the ages of 16-24 would rather live under Shari’a law than under British Common Law; 36 percent think Muslims should be killed if they convert to another religion; 13 percent admire al-Qaida and similar terror groups; and a whopping 74 percent of young British Muslims believe women should wear veils.

WHILE IT is true that in the US the danger of home-grown jihadists to national security is lower than it is in Britain, it is also true that there is a growing phenomenon of jihadist violence being perpetrated by Muslim men against American civilians in the name of jihad.

Ten days ago, the Investors Business Daily published an editorial enumerating a partial list of acts of terrorism carried out by Muslim men against their fellow Americans since the September 11 attacks. Most recently, Sulejman Talovic entered a shopping mall in Salt Lake City, murdered five and wounded four unsuspecting shoppers before being killed by an off-duty police officer.

As was the case when Derrick Shareef, another Muslim male, was arrested in early December for plotting to carry out a similar attack at a shopping mall in Illinois just before Christmas, the media and the law enforcement agencies covering the Salt Lake City massacre have made light of the fact that the perpetrator was a Muslim.

While Talovic is dead and so cannot explain his motives to authorities, Shareef was arrested after telling an FBI informant of his plans to murder Jews specifically and Americans in particular for Allah. As Shareef told the informant, “I swear by Allah man, I’m down for it too. I’m down for the cause. I’m down to live for the cause and die for the cause, man.”

SHAREEF’S protestations of jihadist ardor made little impression on either federal authorities or the media… (rest at link above)
