Islamic Terrorism in Manhattan

Yet another Muslim with a legal record enviable for most Americans embraced the original theopolitical ideology taught by Islam’s founder Muhammad.

 

A Muslim Uzbekistan foreign national in the U.S. with a green card rented a Home Depot rig drove it to Manhattan NYC, found a relatively wide bike path that pedestrians also frequented. He drove the truck rapidly through the bike path killing eight and severely injuring many others.

 

The Muslim’s name -Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov.

NYC Terrorist: Lone Wolf … or Not?

ISIS had called on its supporters through social media to carry out attacks on Halloween. For example, in France, a country in which young people recently started celebrating the holiday, an ad appeared the day before Halloween with an image of a machete dripping blood over the Eiffel Tower.

 

The text on the ad (shown above) read: “Enjoy their gathering. Terrorize October 31” and “Get out before it’s too late,” seemingly a message to the French to abandon their country to jihadis.

 

The image was shared on a Twitter account that distributes news about Islamic State (ISIS), jihadi videos and images.

 

ISIS’ own magazine Rumiyah has extensively encouraged its followers to conduct “lone wolf” vehicular attacks, with one issue providing a step-by-step guide on how to procure a heavy truck and perpetrate such an attack.

 

In the guide, ISIS recommended to avoid “off-roaders, SUVs, and four-wheel drive vehicles” because they “lack the necessary attributes required for causing a blood bath.”

 

“Smaller vehicles lack the weight and wheel span required for crushing many victims,” the article stated, while double-wheeled trucks “[give] victims less of a chance to escape being crushed by the vehicle’s tires.”

 

While attacks such as the one in New York may have carried out by one person, calling such attack the work of a “lone wolf” is deceiving.

 

ISIS has built a sophisticated network that allows such individuals to be encouraged, tutored and ideologically supported every step of their twisted journey from the inception of the idea to the execution of a terrorist attack.

 

Social media is not localized. It is a powerful tool that has aided the Islamic State, without which a huge percentage of their successful recruitment of volunteers would most likely not have happened.

 

Young people who have grown up in the age of the internet are comfortable participating in virtual reality. Thus, online connections — through encrypted messaging, “inspirational” videos and even “personal” contact through video chatting — is as good as the real thing.

 

To call any terrorist in our day a “lone wolf” is a misnomer – and a dangerous one, as it takes the attention off finding and shutting down the trail of responsibility and focusing solely on the individual.

NYC Aftermath: To Stop Terrorism, Destroy the Ideology

Tuesday’s terrorist attack in New York was carried out by a 29-year-old man who rented a Home Depot truck and drove it onto a bike path. Such forms of attack are extremely simple to carry out. They need no planning, no coordination with a central organization and are not difficult to obtain equipment.

 

They are therefore impossible to completely stop with security measures alone.

 

Counter-extremism organization the Quilliam Foundation said of the attack:

 

“This unfortunate incident once again highlights the importance of focusing resources on deradicalization work and implementing a better strategy to prevent extremism, as incidents of this nature are extremely difficult, if not impossible, for security services to predict and stop.”

 

New York is not unguarded. Entering the United States requires extensive security checks. Immigration from countries like Uzbekistan (the nationality of the terrorist) is complex and requires background checks.

 

Not only that, but once an attack is underway there are armed police everywhere. In this case, the terrorist was shot very promptly at the scene by a nearby uniformed officer.

 

The FBI and CIA carry out extensive surveillance operations around the world. They monitor correspondence, tap phone conversations and pay informants. They have spies inside foreign governments and inside terrorist organizations. They have reconnaissance satellites in space.

 

America’s security services work tirelessly to protect the country from every conceivable foe, and most of the time they succeed. The United States government spends over $16 billion annually to counter terrorism. They can even use drones to kill any designated target pretty much anywhere in the world.

 

But with all this technology and money, they cannot read people’s minds and cannot prevent someone from just deciding to run people over with a truck.

 

People decide to carry out attacks like that in the name of an ideology. An ideology they find powerful enough to die for it. All the security in the world cannot prevent individuals who believe in something from acting in the name of that belief: That killing random civilians will trigger the war between Muslims and the West that they crave and enable them to usher in a totalitarian caliphate.

 

They will always find new ways to attack and new ways to hide because it simply isn’t possible to eliminate every potential avenue of terror.

 

The only way to end radical Islamic terrorism once and for all is to discredit the ideology which fuels it.

New York Terrorist Left Note Pledging to ISIS

A terrorist mowed down cyclists in Manhattan with a truck on Tuesday, killing eight people and injuring  at least 11 others. Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov drove a rental truck onto a bike path near the site of the World Trade Center and continued for several blocks before he crashed into a school bus.

 

Witnesses report Saipov emerged from the truck brandishing two guns and shouting “Allahu Akbar!” A uniformed police officer shot him in the abdomen. The guns were later revealed to be a paintball gun and a pellet gun.

 

Saipov, 29, was taken to hospital and is now in police custody. A note claiming the attack in the name of the Islamic State terrorist group was found in the truck. Saipov is an Uzbek national who came to the United States in 2010.

 

“This was an act of terror, and a particularly cowardly act of terror,” New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement, “aimed at innocent civilians, aimed at people going about their lives who had no idea what was about to hit them.”

 

U.S. President Donald Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray have all been briefed. The FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force has taken over the investigation.

 

“In NYC, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person. Law enforcement is following this closely. NOT IN THE U.S.A.!” Trump tweeted in the wake of the attack.

 

The Islamic State (ISIS) has long called for supporters in the United States to carry out attacks in its name against civilians without waiting for coordination with the central leadership. In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, for example, the group called for attacks against relief centers gathering aid to help the victims.

In June this year, ISIS called on supporters to “kill civilians of the Crusaders, run over them by vehicles.”

 

At press time the attacker is believed to have acted alone.

  1. WE MUST BE PREPARED AT ALL TIMES, THINGS SUCH AS THIS USUALLY HAPPEN, WHEN WE LEAST EXPECT IT, AND WE SHOULD NOT TAKE ANYTHING FOR GRANTED. WE HAVE TWO PEOPLE HERE THAT ARE TAKING CENTER STAGE FOR TAKING THIS COUNTRY DOWN, AND AS A CONSPIRACY THEORIST HISTORY SHALL PROVE ME CORRECT WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT. PEOPLE ARE SPECULATING ON THE TRUMP AND RUSSIAN COLLUSION, WHEN THEY SHOULD INVESTIGATE THE OBAMA AND TRUMP COLLUSION. MANY YEARS AGO, TRUMP TRIED RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT ON THE REFORMED PARTY AND OBAMA KNEW THIS. OBAMA AND TRUMP APPEAR TO BE RADICALLY DIFFERENT, BUT IN REALITY THEY ARE TWO PEAS IN A PIE. OBAMA IS A SATANISTS THAT IS PRO MUSLIM, TRUMP IS ONLY INTERESTED IN HIS FOREIGN INVESTMENTS, AND ONLY WANTS TO HIRE FOREIGNERS, THIS IS NOT BECOMING OF A PRESIDENT OF THE USA. MOVING FORWARD IN QUANTUM MEASURE, OBAMA AGREED TO TAKE ONE SIDE, TRUMP AGREED TO TAKE ANOTHER SIDE, AND TOGETHER THEY BRING THIS COUNTRY DOWN TO CREATE THE NEW HOOVERVILLES, SO THAT WE CAN BE TAKEN OVER BY THE NEW WORLD ORDER. IVANKA AND JARAD KUSHNER HAVE EXTREMELY CLOSE TIES AND FINANCIAL TIES WITH GEORGE SOROS, AND TRUMP HAS NEVER ONCE BEEN IN OBJECTION TO THIS, IN FACT INVITED HIS KIDS IN THE WHITE HOUSE UNDER THESE CONDITIONS. THEY ARE ALL TOGETHER ONE BALL OF EVIL WAX, AND PEOPLE ARE FOLLOWING A FALSE PROPHET IN TRUMP. OBAMA AND TRUMP ARE BOTH GLOBALISTS, TRUMP ALSO BEING ILLUMINATI, OBAMA IS NOT ILLUMINATI, BUT BELONGS TO SOMETHING EVEN MUCH WORSE. TRUMP DOES NOT EVEN MAKE MENTION OF THE MARK OF THE BEAST WHICH IS ALREADY HERE, NOR DOES HE MAKE MENTION OF THE FACT THAT THE USD (DOLLAR) IS NO LONGER THE WORLD’S CURRENCY AND THAT OTHER COUNTRIES ARE TAKING IT DOWN. CURRENTLY DONALD AND ERIC TRUMP HAVE PLANS TO START BUSINESSES IN INDIA, THAT IS NOT JOBS FOR AMERICANS. TRUMP IS JUST AS CORRUPT AS THE ESTABLISHMENT, BUT CORRUPTED IN DIFFERENT WAYS; IN OTHER WORDS, HE WANTS TO BE TOP DOG AND GIVE THEM NOTHING; HENCEFORTH, CORRUPTION IS FIGHTING CORRUPTION. IT IS NOT ABOUT TRUMP THE VICTIM, IT IS ABOUT KEEPING US STUPID AND IN THE DARK. JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY ANSWER. IF PEOPLE THINK OTHERWISE, THEY LAUGH NOW AND PAY LATER.

    1. I like your thoughts on Obama. Not so much on Trump. I have seen zero evidence of your of your Trump accusations, especially connected to Soros. On the other hand, there is a huge of evidence to an Obama, Clinton & Dem Party connection to Soros.
