Let’s see if the left is as outraged by THIS atrocity as they are when a Mosque or Temple are the targets. The answer is USUALLY ‘no’.
Remember when Trump expressed concerns about our immigration policy, especially with respect to the part about our inability to vet people from certain failed states?
How we didn’t know if they were going to new destinations seeking a safe haven, or an opportunity to export their violent ideology to a new location?
On more than one occasion during the 2016 campaign, he read the poem about a snake, remember? And he was calling for ‘extreme vetting’ — which was dishonestly dismissed as a ‘Muslim ban’.
Any of this sounding familiar? Now, ask yourself whether he or his critics were right as we cover this story.
A Syrian refugee who came to the United States three years ago has been charged in an ISIS-inspired plot to bomb a Christian church in Pittsburgh, the Justice Department said Wednesday.
Mustafa Mousab Alowemer, 21, recorded a video of himself pledging an oath of allegiance to the leader of the Islamic State group and bought bomb-making materials for a FBI undercover employee and a FBI confidential source to use in an attack, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
He was arrested Wednesday and charged with one count of attempting to provide material support to ISIS and two counts of distributing information about making bombs in relation to the planned assault.
Three years ago. That would have been 2016, would it not?
Court documents say Alowemer provided Google satellite maps to the FBI undercover employee and the confidential source describing routes of arrival and escape to the church. The FBI identified the site of the attack as the Legacy International Worship Center, court documents say.
…Alowemer sent the undercover FBI employee two documents related to explosives — a “Beginners Course for Young Mujahedeen” and “The Extraction of Potassium Nitrate from Goat Manure and Other Methods.”
Alowemer’s discussions with the FBI source indicated that he wanted more time to plan and coordinate the attack before carrying it out in July. He was plotting to set off the bomb in the middle of the night, around 3 or 4 a.m., the court documents say.
Goats. Why does it always come back to goats?
This incident was planned out and explicitly intended to send a shockwave of fear into churchgoers across the nation:
While he was in communications with the FBI agents, Alowemer provided them with a handwritten, 10-point plan that outlined his plan to bomb the Legacy International Worship Center. This operation must be done on a Sunday night in order to shock the enemies of Allah Almighty” he wrote in the plan, “everywhere and all over America, and in order to [illegibleJ from going to their churches and instill fear in their hearts. Around 3:00 or 4:00 at night.”
And he was in ‘solidarity’ with ISIS elsewhere.
He said the church was chosen for attack in order to “take revenge for our ISIS brothers in Nigeria”, according to the criminal complaint.
In a statement on Facebook, Pastor Michael Day of the Legacy International Worship Center praised the arrest, writing: “The Devil is Defeated and God is Exalted!”
“Gratefully God thwarted such a strategy, protecting our congregation and northside community,” he said, adding that the community would need time to “digest this horrific news”.
Will we see loud denunciations and handwringing by AOC? Will we see calls for stricter border screening? Will the news decry the dangers of Islamofascist radicals?
Or does all that bring them too close to any accusation of Xenophobia, or the other politically incorrect ‘phobia’s?
Will this guy be chalked up as a lone-wolf crazy person with absolutely NO connection to the ‘Religion of Peace’ inexplicably founded by the ‘Prophet of the Sword’.
Maybe, just MAYBE the President knew what he was talking about.
If he lived in the Old West, President Trump would be Doc Holliday – a sharpshooting marksman who gets the job done!
Standing up to the bullies was the one response the Left’s political machine was completely unprepared for… and Trump knew it. It’s why we elected him in the first place.
It inspired latest in the MAGA series of our very own Resident Artist, Doug Giles capturing that same defiant spirit perfectly.
Wear it as a reminder of why we don’t back down from a fight.
