In PJ Media I discuss some signs that the jihad against the West is just getting started:
In a new video, an Islamic State jihadi proclaims:
I say to all French people who think that the Islamic State won’t arrive in Europe, with God’s help, we will arrive in Europe. We will expand across all of Europe, to France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and also the USA. I say to all my brothers that cannot immigrate and join the Islamic caliphate, try to resist with all means, kill them, slaughter them, burn their cars and homes. I say to my brothers, if you see a police officer—kill him. Kill them all. Kill all infidels that you see in the streets.
The Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Cacher jihad massacres were not the beginning, and they’re certainly not the end. There will be many more killings, many more infidels struck down in the streets. Jihad murder will become an ever more frequent feature of life in the West. And just this past week there have been new signs that we are in for a long, tough war -– made all the tougher by the fact that only one side has the will to fight, a clear objective for which it is fighting, and an indestructible tenacity enabling it to keep on fighting, no matter how long the odds.
The free world could still prevail. But right now, it is being set aflame.
1. Shelton Thomas Bell.
Bell, a twenty-one-year-old convert to Islam from Florida, got a twenty-year prison sentence Wednesday for attempting to aid jihad terrorists. According to the Florida Times-Union,
..he planned on traveling to Yemen to join Ansar Al-Sharia, an alias for al-Qaida. Bell and an unidentified juvenile flew to Jordan in late 2012 in the hopes of crossing over into Yemen and joining the terrorist organization, prosecutors said.
But they never crossed the border and ended up being arrested in Jordan after Bell preached jihad at a mosque.
Also, Bell filmed videos in which he is seen “advocating violent jihad, burning an American flag and renouncing his American citizenship. Bell speaks in the videos of the need for Muslims to rise up against the United States and other Western powers.”
Bell didn’t just talk: “He and another man also are shown getting ready to vandalize an Arlington church in July 2012. Statues were defaced at Chapel Hills Memory Gardens cemetery, with the head and arms of Jesus cut off.”
And so yet another convert to Islam misunderstands his new religion and gets the crazy idea that it has something to do with violence against unbelievers. Yet another convert to Islam gets the strange notion that he has ceased to be a citizen of his nation, but has instead become its enemy. If only Barack Obama or John Kerry had been around to set him straight. But they weren’t. And there are many, many others like Shelton Thomas Bell in America today.
2. Islamic State threats to a Jewish business.
WJLA reported Tuesday that,
a thriving D.C. business is the target of self-described ISIS militants. For the past five months a barrage of phone calls and internet postings have threatened employees. The callers vow to carry out mass murder.
The report didn’t identify the business, but said it was “Jewish owned and some of the threats are anti-Semitic while others are racial or homophobic.”
This could be actual Islamic State jihadis, but the Department of Homeland Security has deemed the threats “not credible.” Even though DHS wouldn’t know an Islamic jihadist from the hole in the ground left by his suicide bomb, this is still probably an example of jihad chic — losers pretending to be the strong murderous thugs they admire.
However, even the possibility that idiot losers think it’s cool to imitate the Islamic State doesn’t exactly bode well for the future.
3. Abdalah Mohamed.
Abdalah Mohamed wanted a smoke, but he didn’t have the scratch to buy a whole pack, so he went into Ira’s Deli in Portland and asked to buy just one. When the clerk told him that the deli didn’t sell individual cigarettes, but would have twenty at a pop, he flew into a rage.
“I will blow up your store,” he screamed. “I’m going to send my guys to shoot up your store.” “You Israeli,” he raged at the deli’s owner, Iraj Rafai: “I’ll blow up your store in the name of Allah! We take care of people like you.” After he finally left, he called the store only to fulminate some more.
It wasn’t a jihad attack. It wasn’t planned or premeditated. But Mohamed’s default position in his rage was “I’ll blow up your store in the name of Allah,” not “I will never bring my business here again, but will frequent your rival deli down the street, and continue my quest until I find a place that sells loose cigarettes.” Once again, not a good sign for the future…
