Six Muslims were arrested this week for plotting a terrorist attack in the United States.


Thanks to an intuitive video shop clerk, the plot was discovered more than a year ago, when one of the terrorists brought a video tape to the shop for the purpose of making duplicates. When the clerk saw the video, he got suspicious and immediately informed the authorities. However, the authorities did not reveal anything until they watched the group and gathered all evidence against the terrorists.


This " plot has no ties to al Qaeda or any other international terrorist organization", said an American official during the press conference that was held to announce the arrest.



The discovery of this plot has certainly prevented the loss of so many lives, but we have to admit that this was pure luck.


It was pure luck to have a real idiot amongst these Muslim terrorists who didn't think of any better place to make copies of his video tape than a public store!

Another pure luck was to have a sharp attentive store clerk who did not keep his suspicions to himself, but rather rushed to report the tape to the proper authorities.


After all, if it had not been for the idiot terrorist and for the intuitive clerk, we could have been watching another tape for Bin laden on the Arabic Al-Jazeera channel, congratulating the Islamic Umma (nation) for this successful Mohammedan raid and promising the Americans and the world of more bloodshed.



No doubt that the authorities in this country are doing whatever they can, within the limits of our civilized laws to protect the citizens from the Islamic terror. However, the pure luck that led to the discovery of this operation, should warn us about how important it is for our security to put aside these civilized laws.  


It is time that we learn we are not dealing with civilized beings in this war. Instead, we are dealing with creatures in which Islam robbed their human nature. Unlike any sort of domesticated animal nature, Islam replaces it with an instinct similar to that of the worst savage animals, which love to kill for the sake of killing.


How many operations can we thwart if we solely do the proper thing, so that we don't leave our lives at the mercy of damn luck!


How many other plots could be discovered if the authorities conduct a simultaneous search in every single mosque in the nation and every single house, organization offices,  or store owned by Muslims?!


Of course, we will hear most Muslims along with a chorus of Americans wailing the lost human rights! We will also hear the echo of the "profiling" outcry even from Islamic countries where profiling is part of their constitutions!

Should we really care about these devious voices that never stop irritating us no matter what we do?


Those amongst the Muslim Community, who value their own security and that of the nation, are supposed to be appreciative and understanding of such a search operation, as it will be eventually to their advantage.  However, those who would wail and cry should not only be ignored but rather considered for immediate deportation to where they truly belong!



However, it is so sad to hear our officials throwing statement that prove nothing but their ignorance of Islam, such as what was announced in the press conference about the group not related to any foreign terrorist organization.  How naïve can one be! 

Mercy!  Have they forgotten a global foreign terrorist organization called "Islam"?

Isn't Islam a religion and state that considers all of its followers as a reserve army that can be called any time for service?(*)


How would our officials believe that these terrorists are not tied to any organization despite the fact they, the terrorists, already admitted that the reason they wanted to kill the Americans, is to serve Allah!.. Isn't Allah the founder and the leader of that terrorist organization called "Islam"? 

Isn't Allah who said to all Muslims: "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the Religion of Truth, from among the People of the Book, (meaning the Jews and the Christians) until they pay the Jizya (the tax imposed upon them) with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” (With humiliation and submission to the government of Islam.) Quran: 9:29 


When are we going to wake up?



(*) "As for the army, the apostle peace be upon him considered all Muslims as soldiers for Jihad, because jihad is the fighting duty of all Muslims. When the apostle went for raids, [robbery] he always called upon all Muslims to join, and all Muslims used to answer his call, whether they were healthy or ill, and used to give up their money and lives for the sake of Allah.  At that time, there was no special army, and the status remained as such until the time of the first Caliph Abu Bakr. When Umar [the second Caliph] took over, he created a special Islamic army and a treasury department (Beyt al-Mal) to fund Jihad and to pay the soldiers' salaries. All other Muslims were considered as a reserve army who could be called to fight whenever needed"  (from Nizam Al-Hukm fil Islam – The Governing System in Islam – Taqiy Al Deen Al-Nabahani, published in 1953 page 13-14)
