Holder’s Latest Move Could Aid Terrorists





Holder Not Your Father's DOJ SC

Attorney General Eric Holder is once again handcuffing the federal agents tasked with fighting terrorism. Reports indicate the Justice Department developed changes to racial profiling rules that will prohibit the FBI from using a number of factors – including religion – in pursuing criminals. These rules could apply to cases against Islamic extremists dedicated to destroying our way of life.

Please take a moment to take part in our important poll by letting us know if you think Eric Holder should be impeached.

While there was no official announcement made following the meeting in which these amendments were reportedly made, an anonymous source close to Holder confirmed many details. Holder released a vague statement Wednesday evening indicating he had just met with New York Mayor Bill de Blasio to discuss “preventing crime while protecting civil rights and civil liberties.”

The shift is a huge step from incremental changes implemented by George W. Bush more than a decade ago. While that administration banned only the use of race, it did not prevent agents from using even that factor in national security investigations.

Holder’s latest move is sure to placate the radical leftists who demand law enforcement remain willfully blind to obvious indicators of potential terrorist activity. Despite the fact that an overwhelming percentage of terrorism in today’s world stems directly from militant Islam, too many Democrats prefer to ignore facts in a misaligned effort to spare the feelings of law-abiding Muslims.

As Illinois Democrat Sen. Dick Durbin claimed a few years ago, existing laws were “a license to profile American Muslims and Hispanic-Americans.”

Holder, proven to be as radical as any leftist demanding stricter profiling laws, was apparently happy to oblige. Still, some activists want even more unequivocal language ensuring these same new rules will apply to national security.

National Network for Arab American Advocacy Director Linda Sarsour called Holder’s announcement “irrelevant” if investigators are still able to consider religion in the fight against Islamic terror. The left’s absurd logic would remove the only common denominator among the vast majority of such attacks.

This administration is once again proving its desire to elevate political correctness above the safety of American citizens.

Jihad Jane: American Woman Charged For Terror Plot





JihadJane

Despite the tangible threat Islamic extremism poses in the U.S., many Americans effectively disregard the issues as a problem relegated to the Middle East. With more and more cases of homegrown terror being exposed within our borders, though, it is increasingly dangerous to embrace a false sense of safety.

One of the most recent instances of an American citizen engaged in such a plot involves Colleen LaRose, a former resident of Pennsylvania who refers to herself as “Jihad Jane.”

Suspected of hatching a plot to kill a cartoonist who dared depict Mohammed, LaRose ultimately pleaded guilty to charges related to the conspiracy itself and false testimony made to the FBI.

Reports indicate she corresponded with at least one unidentified cohort primarily via email. Evidence presented in her trial provided a glimpse into those conversations, including the initial order assigned to LaRose.

The unnamed instigator demanded she travel to Sweden, find the cartoonist in question, and “kill [him] in a way that the whole Kufar world [will] get frightened.” Kufar is a reference to non-Muslims.

“I will make this my goal till I achieve it or die trying,” she dutifully responded.

Though there was no direct evidence LaRose got close to actually killing the artist, officials reported that she “traveled to Europe and tracked the intended target online in an effort to complete her task.”

LaRose was sentenced to 10 years in prison for the plot, leading American security and law enforcement officials to celebrate the victory.

Acting Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Carlin said in a statement that LaRose “is being held accountable for her efforts to provide support to terrorists and encourage violence against individuals overseas.”

According to Zane David Memeger, U.S. attorney for the Pennsylvania’s Eastern District, the case against Jihad Jane “clearly underscores the evolving nature of the terrorist threat we now face in this country.”

He said Internet connectivity has made plotting a terrorist attack much easier and, while LaRose’s “significant sentence will help protect the community from any future threat posed by the defendant, we as a nation must remain vigilant in identifying and stopping others who are susceptible to engaging in acts of homegrown violence extremism.”

We must concede the world is a very dangerous place, due in large part to the continuing threat of Islamic terrorism. For every Jihad Jane caught in the act, countless other extremists plot their own attack.

The War on Terror is one with no sign of an end; therefore, we must celebrate each victory with an eye toward the next threat.

Radical American Muslim Inspired U.K. Attack





Muslim_Americans_620x350

Despite the incredible tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001, and numerous attacks in the years since, many Americans continue to underestimate the potential danger posed by radicalized Muslims within the U.S.

According to one of the two men responsible for killing British soldier Lee Rigby earlier this year, one such American was integral in his decision to carry the vicious attack out. Michael Adebowale, who reportedly hit the victim with his vehicle before fatally cutting him with a meat cleaver, was recently convicted of Rigby’s death.

In a subsequent letter, Adebowale cited the influence of Khalid Yasin, an American Muslim leader, as the impetus behind the unprovoked attack.

Yasin’s message was integral in Adebowale’s 2009 conversion to Islam, the jihadist claimed in his letter. After hearing one of the American’s lectures, the convicted murderer began moving closer to Islam.

“After hearing this I had to conclude that the purpose of life is to acknowledge and worship the creator,” he wrote.

He went much further than worship, however, when he mercilessly slaughtered a man in public and continued to portray the act as his religious duty. Yasin’s teachings have a similarly murderous tone, which seems to have played a significant role in Adebowale’s development into a radical Muslim.

Now 67, Yasin has been a practitioner of Islam for about four decades. The former gang member has expressed his desire to see homosexuals murdered and claims the U.S. government invented AIDS. He also teaches that higher education is an abomination of the faith.

Obviously, it is easier to convince an uneducated individual that jihad is an appropriate response to the world’s non-Muslim population.

While Adebowale and his cohort, Michael Adebolajo, were found guilty of an unconscionable murder, they will likely spend the rest of their lives behind bars. The residual travesty is that those who incite such violence remain free to spread their hate.
