And yet he still misunderstood the great Interior Spiritual Struggle, and somehow got the crazy idea that jihad was something that could be accomplished with bombs. He apparently even had the crazy, wholly unjustifiable and un-Islamic notion that “slay the pagans wherever you find them” (Qur’an 9:5) meant “slay the pagans wherever you find them,” instead of “establish interfaith harmony and dialogue,” which is what every Muslim on the planet knows that it really means.
“Officials: Man Who Spoke Of Jihad Arrested In Plot,” by Ben Nuckols The Associated Press, December 8:
A 21-year-old construction worker who had recently converted to Islam and told an FBI informant he thought about nothing but jihad was arrested Wednesday when he tried to detonate what he thought was a bomb at a military recruitment center, authorities said.
Antonio Martinez, also known as Muhammad Hussain, faces charges of attempted murder of federal officers and attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction, according to court documents filed Wednesday.
The bomb he is accused of trying to detonate was fake and had been provided by an undercover FBI agent….
According to court documents, he has been on the FBI’s radar screen since October, when he told a confidential FBI source he wanted to attack and kill military personnel….
After meeting with the source, however, Martinez decided to continue with the plot, according to the court documents. On Wednesday he drove an SUV with the dummy bomb to the recruiting center and parked outside the building, authorities said. When he attempted to detonate the device, he was arrested.
During Wednesday’s hearing, Martinez told the judge he could not afford an attorney. He said he works in construction, is married and understood the charges against him.
Asked to identify himself, he said he was Muhammad Hussain but confirmed Antonio Martinez is still his legal name…
White House spokesman Nick Shapiro said the arrest underscores the need for vigilance against terrorism and illustrates why the Obama administration is focused on addressing “domestic radicalization.”
If previous patterns prevail again, as they probably will, that “addressing” of “domestic radicalization” will most likely involve handsome new cash outlays to mosques in America.
