EYES OPEN: Islamic Terror In Your Town

The FBI is warning of possible attack by another Al-Qaeda spin off group based in Syria. This one is even more intent on bringing destruction and death to the United States.

Isn’t Syria the place where the anti-al Assad rebels are being armed and trained by the United States?

This decision to arm rebels in Syria splintered both parties and is wrapped in debate and doubt, as it should be.

With this warning from the FBI, it seems that the misgivings and worries that divided the parties were a foreboding of things to come.

This group, Khorasan, is bent on bringing the fight to the United States or her allies. You might ask what fight, as we are supposedly no longer in the war on terror.

Perhaps, we should redefine terms and solutions of our struggle.

We had a beheading in Oklahoma last week, attributed to “workplace violence,” yet perpetrated by a person of Islam / terror leaning sympathies, as noted on his Facebook page and comments he made. He had been warned against trying to convert co-workers to Islam prior to the incident.

There is a new bill being introduced by certain members of the House and Senate that would cause any American to lose his or her passport if they join a group that supports ISIS or any other terror group.

There should also be some consequences if anyone is communicating or supporting a radical terror group locally with financial or physical aid. I believe that was one of the original purposes of the the Patriot Act.

Our southern border is fairly open. The northern border is no real holdout either. This situation allows many to cross into the United States and disappear. Most likely, there are many terrorists among us already.

Perhaps, we should concentrate on and create a division of our military to investigate and end terror threats here within the United States.

It appears that the fight has come to us. It is time to redefine our reactions and finally recognize we are at risk.
