No Wonder They Erupt: Muslims Taught America Is Racist, Islamophobic

Mohammed A. Malik is certainly milking his situation for what it’s worth. How laudable that Malik, an acquaintance of Orlando mass murderer Omar Mateen, who worshiped at the Islamic Center of Fort Pierce, did his due diligence and reported Mateen to the FBI. (It’s not Malki’s fault the FBI is guilty of dereliction.)

Before Mateen, Malik also volunteered information about another member of his mosque, “Moner Mohammad Abu-Salha,” who “was 22 when he became the first American-born suicide bomber, driving a truck full of explosives into a government office in Syria.”

But then Malik goes and spoils it all by depicting his dutiful conduct as the norm in the cloistered Muslim community, by pretending his faith is without problems, and seconding the murderous Mateen’s view of America as racist and hateful:

Omar did have a dark outlook on life. Partly, he was upset at what he saw as racism in the United States – against Muslims and others. When he worked as a security guard at the St. Lucie County Courthouse, he told me visitors often made nasty or bigoted remarks to him about Islam. He overheard people saying ugly things about African Americans, too. Since Sept. 11, I’ve thought the only way to answer Islamophobia was to be polite and kind; the best way to counter all the negativity people were seeing on TV about Islam was by showing them the opposite. I urged Omar to volunteer and help people in need – Muslim or otherwise (charity is a pillar of Islam). He agreed, but was always very worked up about this injustice.

Why do you suppose second-generation Muslims are more bitter and twisted than the first generation to arrive in the US, a land of milk-and-honey compared to the crap countries whence they come?

I have a good idea. They are acculturated to militant multiculturalism and identity politics by a liberal establishment.

Islamic Infiltration: How Deep, How Wide?

Government, Homeland Security, Islam, Political Correctness, Terrorism

The media now look to affiliates of the Council on American-Islamic Relations for “expertise” on keeping Americans safe. At least one CAIR affiliate is among law-enforcement authorities solicited by The Wall Street Journal for their security know-how. Is this an artifact or the norm?

CAIRE is the media-savvy mouthpiece of militant (aka authentic) Islam in America. The ever-accreting Dhimma of America, trained to talk taqiyya about Islam, will fault me for finding Nezar Hamze’s employment as a US sheriff irreconcilable with the safety of the hapless American people. A director at the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Florida doubles up as a Florida sheriff is what investigative journalist Paul Sperry would dub infiltration. His book by that title needs updating.

Nezar Hamze dispensed advice to the WSJ on how to safeguard … mosques. Scarier still is that Hamze, a regional operations director for the Islamic advocacy group CAIR, doubles up as a deputy sheriff to the Floridians of Broward County. (Hamze advises Mosque goers to “walk in groups.” One wonders what’s his advice to club-goers falling under a hail of bullets from his coreligionists. Smear the blood of your fallen friends over yourself and play dead? )

Meanwhile, mosques around the country, already on high alert for retaliation since the San Bernardino, Calif., terror attack, are strengthening security as the community is in the midst of the Ramadan holiday.
Nezar Hamze, regional operations director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Florida, sent an “action alert” to mosques in the state Sunday advising precautions including keeping the lights on, reaching out to law enforcement and stationing a door greeter who can call 911 if needed.
“No walking alone, walk in groups,” his alert memo says.
Mr. Hamze, who is also a deputy sheriff in Broward County, Fla., said he has been roaming the state teaching security at mosques since last September.
He said the Muslim community is routinely targeted by “vigilantes” or violent extremists after international or domestic terror attacks.

‘Mateen.’ ‘Mateen.’ ‘Omar Mateen.’ There. I Said It. Media Should Too.

Ethics, Etiquette, Journalism, Media, Morality, Terrorism

Petulant, petty media keep announcing they won’s say the name of the Muslim mass murderer of 49 Pulse patrons in Orlando, last week. Not to say the name of a killer is a silly and infantile gesture, or habit oft repeated by the sanctimonious, self-important sorts in media. It conjures the person who covers his ears and hums loudly, so as not to hear bad news. Reality is reality. Facts are facts. Deal. Media are not in a morality contest. Media are meant to function as chroniclers, entrusted with relaying events, not transmitting subliminal messages.

Omar Mateen. Omar Mateen. Omar Mateen. There. I said it.

UPDATED: Mateen Was Loud & Proud About His Orientation As Aspiring Muslim Terrorist

Barack Obama, Government, Homeland Security, Intelligence, Islam, Terrorism

“Mateen Was Loud & Proud About His Orientation As Aspiring Muslim Terrorist” is the title of the current column, now on Constitution.com. An excerpt:

Democrats are frenetically trying to pass legislation that’ll make it impossible for anyone on the government’s terrorist list to legally purchase a firearm. Their renewed Brownian motion is due to the massacre, last Sunday, of 49 gay club-goers in Orlando, Florida. The Muslim American perpetrator wounded 53 others.

The premise of passing such a law, one would hope, is this: Had mass murderer Omar Saddiqui Mateen been in the “Terrorist Screening Database,” he would not have been authorized to purchase the long gun (AR-15 rifle) and handgun (a Glock) he used in the massacre. Both were bought legally.

Here’s the rub: But for a brief appearance, Mateen was not on the government’s terrorist watch list. He didn’t qualify. But boy, did he try. Mateen gave it his best. Government agents diligently kept him off The List. For Omar Mateen it was near impossible to get on the terrorist watch lists.

He may not have come out as a homosexual, but Mateen was loud and proud about his orientation as an aspiring Islamic terrorist. He did so while safely ensconced in law-enforcement. His career Mateen launched at the Florida Department of Corrections. His duties frequently took him to the St. Lucie County courthouse, in Fort Pierce. Mateen was serving as guardian of people and property when he committed the worst massacre since 9/11.

Since 2007, Mateen had worked at the Florida subsidiary of a multinational British security firm, the largest in the world, and, as we now know, likely one of the worst. Mateen’s (likely Kufar) coworkers described him as “racist, belligerent” and generally “toxic.” G4S responded by transferring the complaining coworkers rather than firing the menacing Mateen.

G4S Secure Solutions has contracts with the Department of Homeland Security. It would appear the company assists DHS in operating the taxpayer-funded, catch-and-release, illegal-alien racket. According to investigative journalist Paul Sperry, many of these offenders are “classified as OTMs—Other Than Mexican—and include … possibly also foreign border-crossers from the Middle East and Pakistan.”

In addition, the company provides security in places like Afghanistan and Iraq. (In its dealings, G4S Secure Solutions conjures the fictitious Richard Roper’s cartel. Roper is the villain in The Night Manager, a John le Carré novel adapted for television. With the help of government agents as his conduits for corruption, Roper traffics in arms, drugs and human misery.)

Try as he might, no amount of offense Mateen gave could get him fired. Not even to boast about his alleged connections to al Qaeda, Hezbollah or his yearning for martyrdom. There were derogatory quips about gays and women, too. At the time, the FBI, like G4S, was unfazed. Al Qaeda and Hezbollah are at odds with each other and with ISIS, noodled FBI Director James Comey, post massacre. That Mateen was clueless about the Shia-Sunni divide signaled to the FBI—to the exclusion of all other possibilities—that he wasn’t to be taken seriously as a threat.

Comey seemed to think that to be considered a threat, a Muslim Millennial—the beneficiary of an American education—must know the ins-and-outs of Islam’s religious sects. It didn’t occur to Comey and his compadres that killing and said ignorance are not mutually exclusive. It did not occur to Comey that Islam unites all of its factions in hatred of the infidel. …

UPDATE (6/18): FACEBOOK THREAD:

Craig Smith: “Maybe I just haven’t read enough yet. But from what I have read so far, I doubt that anyone else writing as made as many connections, and justified conclusions as you have here.

Ilana Mercer: “Craig Smith, yes, and thanks! that’s why, after 15 years of keeping up this quality, the paleo Mercer column is so widely published on all conservative, paleo and libertarian sites. Oh, sorry, it’s not. Not at all. It’s nowhere to be found. Well, at least you found us.”

Doris Wise “The good ones, the ones ahead of the curve, are hardly noticed. The copycats who attach themselves to a sugar daddy or mommy, err…donor, get the attention and coverage. Then act like they invented the wheel.”

Ilana Mercer: “Doris Wise, mediocrity threatens nobody. sad for society, but preference for mediocrity and cloying clones is everywhere, among all factions and ideological stripes. few are intellectually honest. myself, I like talent. maybe b/c I’m not threatened by it.”

Ross A Mahan: The FBI is either incompetent or complicit. Both are frightening

Ilana Mercer: And both are likely true, Ross A Mahan
