A group claiming affiliation with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) claims to have posted online the names, photos, street addresses, and, in some cases, ranks, of 100 American military service members.
And it called upon its Islamic “brothers residing in America” to kill them.
Calling itself Islamic State Hacking Division, the group said that it obtained this information by hacking military servers, databases and emails.
But an unnamed Defense Department official quoted by the New York Timesdownplayed the claim that government databases had been hacked.
Instead, he said most of the information could be found in public records, residential address search sites and social media.
Accompanying the release of this information was a message calling upon “lone wolf” Islamics to wage jihad stateside:
“These Kuffar [nonbelievers] that drop bombs over Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Khurasan and Somalia are from the same lands that you reside in, so when will you take action?
“Know that it is wajib [oblilgatory] for you to kill these kuffar! and now we have made it easy for you by giving you addresses, all you need to do is take the final step, so what are you waiting for?
“Kill them in their own lands, behead them in their own homes, stab them to death as they walk their streets thinking they are safe…”
After the information was posted, the Pentagon announced that it was investigating the matter.
So is the FBI.
Local police have been asked to step up patrols in the neighborhoods where the target service members live.
Meanwhile, the Pentagon has shown itself at a loss to deal with this new threat of Islamic terrorists using the Internet as a recruiting tool.
The agency didn’t ask YouTube to take down the posted message until a CBS News reporter asked if it had done so.
And how is the United States Government responding to threats such as this?
It’s vastly increasing the numbers of potential terrorists within the United States.
According to a December 9, 2014 press release by the U.S. Department of State:
“We applaud the 25 countries that have agreed to resettle Syrian refugees, including some who will be accepting UNHCR [United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees] referrals for the first time.
“The United States accepts the majority of all UNHCR referrals from around the world. Last year, we reached our goal of resettling nearly 70,000 refugees from nearly 70 countries. And we plan to lead in resettling Syrians as well.
“We are reviewing some 9,000 recent UNHCR referrals from Syria. We are receiving roughly a thousand new ones each month, and we expect admissions from Syria to surge in 2015 and beyond.”
Not only are swelling numbers of potential Islamic terrorists arriving almost daily in the United States, they are being provided, gratis, with assistance millions of hard-working Americans desperately need.
Assistance such as:
- English classes
- help in enrolling their children in school
- job training
- health care
These will be provided by
- the International Organization for Migrationtation to the United States;
- networks of resettlement agencies
- civic organizations
- and local volunteers.
And what is the reason for the United States’ shipping so many potential terrorists into its borders?
Nothing more than simple liberal guilt for the sins of the world.
From the State Department’s press release:
“As the flow of [Syrian] refugees has grown to a mass exodus, countries hosting refugees in the region have contended with overcrowded hospitals and schools, shortages of everything from housing to water, economic pressures and recent evidence of mounting public resentment.
“But these very real burdens must pale in comparison to the daily struggles of Syrians themselves.
“Imagine losing practically everything – your loved ones, your home, your profession, and your dignity. Imagine the frustration of languishing for years, unable to work or send children to school, exhausting your resources and relying on handouts. Imagine fearing that this situation is never going to end.
“For Syrians and for other victims of violence and persecution – resettlement offers not just an escape, but a chance to start over.”
Of course, the State Department press release omits this startling fact:
Since 1979, Syria has been listed by the U.S. State Department as a sponsor of terrorism.
Among the terrorist groups it supports are Hizbollah and Hamas. For years, Syria provided a safe-house in Damascus to Ilich Ramírez Sánchez–the notorious terrorist better known as Carlos the Jackal.
There are no “good Syrians” for the United States to support–only murderers who have long served a tyrant and now wish to become the next tyrant.
Thus, flooding the United States with thousands–if not millions–of potential terroristic Fifth Columnists poses a genuine threat to present and future generations of Americans.
While Islamic nations like Syria and Egypt wage war within their own borders, they will lack the resources to launch attacks against the United States.
When Adolf Hitler invaded the Soviet Union in 1941, then-Senator Harry Truman said: “I hope the Russians kill lots of Nazis and vice versa.”
That should be America’s view whenever its sworn enemies start killing themselves off. Americans should welcome such self-slaughters, not become entrapped in them.
