Here’s what we know so far: On Christmas Day, Northwest Airlines Flight 253 was en route from Amsterdam, Netherlands, to Detroit. As the plane made its final approach to Detroit Metropolitan Airport, a passenger allegedly tried to ignite an explosive device on his body, setting off a fire.
“Finally, the American people should remain vigilant, but also be confident. Those plotting against us seek not only to undermine our security, but also the open society and the values that we cherish as Americans. This incident, like several that have preceded it, demonstrates that an alert and courageous citizenry are far more resilient than an isolated extremist.”
two of the Al-Qaeda leaders involved in this latest plot were once Gitmo terrorist detainees who were eventually released from the detention center, only to return to their jihadist roots to focus on murdering innocent civilians. And finally, Al-Qaeda has openly confirmed that they were behind this man’s training, funding and equipment.
There is no doubt that most Muslims are peaceful and just want to go on living their lives. But as several others have highlighted, even though most Muslims are not radical or terrorists, almost every act of terrorism in the world today is perpetrated by practitioners of radical Islam. These radical Islamists, unfortunately, are hurting not only the “infidels” to whom they seek to “cleanse” from the world, they also hurt peaceful, law-abiding Muslims who want nothing to do with aims of the violent jihadists, namely, the globe ruled under Islamic Sharia Law.
Until the majority of peaceful Muslims stand up to the radicals that poison their religion and our world, they will all be stereotyped by non-Muslims as part of the problem. That may be unfair, yet it is also unfair that non-Muslims must continue to live in a state of constant fear and inconvenience of politically-correct strip searches and lines in airports out of fear of “racial profiling” those who come from a background that is historically and typically Islamic. When an eighty-year-old, white-haired Caucasian grandmother is pulled aside for a targeted strip search by Department of Homeland Security agents so there is no appearance of “profiling” a singular group, we have crossed the politically correct path to insanity in this country.
President Obama’s policies against our national security structure, including his reversion to treating a real shooting war more as a pre-9/11 Clintonian mindset as nothing more than a “law-enforcement” problem, have simply emboldened Al Qaeda and their allies once again. There is no doubt that this president’s total disregard for reality and his pursuit of a politically correct Utopia will bring on another disastrous atrocity against the United States at the hands of Al Qaeda. Maybe we Americans will then finally wake up to the reality that we do have a real enemy who wants us destroyed. Maybe at that point, we will finally become serious about getting the job of winning the War on Islamist Fascism instead of pursuing idiotic politically-correct policies. Maybe then we will finally put our national interests, i.e. survival, ahead of trying to become “loved” by the “international community” and the United Nations.
Until that day, however, there can be no doubt that Al Qaeda has found the perfect ally in the White House with whom they can work. Barack Hussein Obama seems to have the Al Qaeda “stamp of approval.”
