The false claim that Muslims in the U.S. are discriminated against and harassed in the U.S. by an overreaching and bigoted national security apparatus is thus shown, in the blood and terror in Chattanooga, to be not only false, but dangerous.
If the “Islamophobia” grievance industry hadn’t been encouraging young Muslims like Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez to see themselves not as full citizens of a nation that granted them far more freedoms than their native lands (or those of their parents), but as a persecuted, hounded, powerless minority, the victim of “racism” and “bigotry,” those four Marines, and Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez himself, might be alive today.
The Islamic jihad gains recruits worldwide – most notably among “Palestinians” – by retailing lurid accounts of infidel atrocities, usually exaggerated or fabricated outright. American Muslim advocacy groups, with their trumped-up hysteria over “Islamophobia,” are egging on young Muslims in the U.S. to go down the same road. Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez is unlikely to be the last Muslim in America to do so.
“Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez’s High School Yearbook Quote Will Give You Chills,” by Benny Johnson, IJ Review, July 16, 2015:
Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez shot and killed four people and wounded one at military installations in Chattanooga, TN, today.
He attended local Red Bank High School. Here is his senior yearbook quote:
“My name causes national security alerts. What does yours do?
A source within the Pentagon confirmed to IJReview that Abdulazeez’s name was on a watch list and he had been flagged by the intelligence community for potential terror activity. The source, which spoke on the condition of anonymity, says there is a suspicion inside the intel community that Abdulazeez had ISIS connections.
