DOJ: Islamic Terrorist not reflective of a particular culture or religion
The current Administration has issued warnings that the biggest terrorist threat to the nation is now home grown terrorists. The Administration has released a series of videos "See Something, Say Something" that encourage Americans to be suspicious of one another. Of course, the videos depict the terrorists as white and those reporting the terrorists as black. In April 2009, Homeland Security sent a report out to local law enforcement fingering "rightwing extremist radicalization" as the most dire threat. Included in that group were Christians who believed in the Bible's end time prophecies, returning Iraq and Afghanistan war vets, and conservative political groups. Now the FBI has arrested a home grown terrorist.
This terrorist, however, was not a rightwing, Christian, TEA Party, National Rifle Association card carrying veteran. He was representative of the real terrorist threat to America--Islam. The FBI foiled an attempt by Islamist Rezwan Ferdaus, a US citizen from Massachusetts, to blow up the Capital and the Pentagon. The FBI says Ferdaus planned to pack large model planes with C4 explosives and remotely fly them into the buildings in Washington, DC. Ferdaus, according to officials, told officials repeatedly that he wanted to conduct Jihad against Americans which he called "enemies of Allah." He thought he was buying 25 pounds of plastic explosives from al Qaeda operatives, who in reality were FBI agents.
According to the Justice Department, "Ferdaus, a Northeastern University graduate with a degree in physics, began planning to commit a violent "jihad" against the U.S. in early 2010. He obtained mobile phones, each of which he modified to act as an electrical switch for an IED. He then supplied the phones to FBI UCs, who he believed to be members of, or recruiters for, al Qaeda....Ferdaus believed that the devices would be used to kill American soldiers overseas. During a June 2011 meeting, he appeared gratified when he was told that his first phone detonation device had killed three U.S. soldiers and injured four or five others in Iraq. Ferdaus responded, "That was exactly what I wanted.""
The mainstream media is only reporting that Ferdaus is a "self-radicalized jihadist." Even U.S. Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz went out of the way to downplay that Ferdaus is Islamic saying, "I want the public to understand that Mr. Ferdaus' conduct, as alleged in the complaint, is not reflective of a particular culture, community or religion." Jeremiah 51:14 says, "Surely I will fill thee with men, as with locusts; and they shall lift up a battle cry against thee." Locust here means "devourer" and was sometimes a term that defined the nomadic Arab. So long as we ignore the root of these terrorists, we will be tormented by them. You can bet if it were a Christian who was caught, his religion would have been all over the media.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
