Alas, I am a bit late with this, and so you have probably seen it elsewhere, but it is still worth noting. The video store employee who blew the whistle on the Fort Dix jihadists was initially hesitant — for fear that reporting on video footage of men shooting guns and shouting “Allahu akbar” might be “racist.”
This is just one indication of how successful American Muslim advocacy groups have been in portraying resistance to the global jihad as “racism,” and honest discussion of the elements of Islam that jihadists use to justify acts of violence and other acts in service of Islamic supremacism as “bigotry.” We can be grateful that this young man came forward anyway. I do wonder at the same time how many others haven’t because they don’t want to appear “racist.”
“Clerk Rings Up N.J. Jihad Jerks,” by Jana Winter for the New York Post, with thanks to all who sent this in:
Throughout the 90-minute-long tape, above the booming gunfire at a Pennsylvania target range, the jihadists could be heard screaming “God is great!”
The two employees “freaked out,” their co-worker recalled.
At first, the teenage clerk didn’t know what to do, his pal said.
“Dude, I just saw some really weird s-,” he frantically told his co-worker. “I don’t know what to do. Should I call someone or is that being racist?”
The fellow employee tried to calm his friend and told him that if what he saw terrified him so much, he should tell the police.
