They had a drill fighting left-wing terrorists last year, until leftists complained, whereupon they apologized. Meanwhile, no one would even dare to suggest that they hold a drill involving fighting against Islamic jihadists. Everyone knows that Islam is a Religion of Peace and that Tiny Minority of Extremists that has hijacked it is nowhere near Ohio, right?
Well, there was Nuradin Abdi, who in August 2002 planned a jihad attack against an Ohio shopping mall. And Abdullah Mohammed Muslim, an Ohio Muslim who trained with al Qaeda and pled guilty to possessing “unregistered destructive devices.” And Ahmed Hussein Mahamud, the Ohio Muslim who was arrested for aiding the jihad in Somalia. Hor Akl, the Ohio Muslim who pled guilty to plotting to fund Hizballah. And Salah Sultan, the former Ohio-based Muslim cleric who is now a Muslim Brotherhood leader, and has said that people worldwide “thirst for the blood of the Jews”
Then there were the Ohio kids who were brutally beaten for being bad Muslims. And the Muslim who last year murdered his Christian father at an Ohio church. He left a copy of the Qur’an on the church podium, and quoted the Qur’an after the murder. He shouted “This is the will of Allah!” as he killed his father.
Nope. Nothing to worry about regarding jihad activity in Ohio. Better focus on those “right-wing extremists.”
The ONG 52nd Civil Support Team training scenario involved a plot from local school district employees to use biological weapons in order to advance their beliefs about “protecting Gun Rights and Second Amendment rights.”
Portsmouth Chief of Police Bill Raisin told NBC 3 WSAZ-TV in Huntington, West Virginia that the drill accurately represented “the reality of the world we live in,” adding that such training “helps us all be prepared.”
Internal ONG documents provided to Media Trackers after repeated delays provide further context to what WSAZ-TV reported last winter.
In the disaster-preparedness scenario, two Portsmouth Junior High School employees poisoned school lunches with mustard gas, acting on orders from white-nationalist leader William Pierce.
The ONG team discovered biological weapons being produced in the school, requiring activation of containment and decontamination procedures.
Participants in the disaster drill located documents expressing the school employees’ “anti-government” sentiments, as well as a note identifying Pierce as the fictional right-wing terrorists’ leader.
ONG’s 52nd Civil Support Unit participated in a similar drill involving left-wing terrorists with Athens County first responders last year; public officials apologized for that training the next day in response to complaints from local environmentalist groups.
No apology to Ohioans who supported limited government and the Second Amendment appears to be forthcoming….
ONG’s January 2013 training exercise is one of many instances where government officials have identified those with limited-government or pro-Second Amendment opinions as potential terror threats.
In 2009, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies that a predicted rise in“right-wing extremism” would be fueled by “proposed imposition of firearms restrictions and weapons bans” and “the election of the first African American president.”
Throughout modern history, groups and individuals associated with left-wing causes have proven far more likely to commit acts of domestic terror….
And then there are those Islamic jihadists, but to care about them would be “Islamophobic.”
