We managed to escape another big terrorist attack, but more are coming. Terrorist experts are speaking of British Muslims as primarily loyal to Islam before any loyalty to Britain. We can expect the same in the United States.
Westerners are in denial about the threat. They have infiltrated our societies and demand things they would never give us in their native lands, or in those lands where their relatives came from. They are inspired by firebrand mullahs and trained by experienced trainers.
Homeland security is making it more difficult for all of us. But our government should be making it more difficult for our enemies. Mosques that incite hatred should be closed. People who teach hate in the Islamic schools should be deported and the schools closed. And we need to say who these people are. They are not “Asian men” and “criminals” as some British media refer to them. They are “islamofascists” who want to kill us.
The FBI’s chief of counterterrorism says his department is investigating 10,000 terrorism cases. Many of those investigations are in our own country, including in the Detroit area. Let’s hope they are successful and let’s hope we don’t let anymore in.
