View Full Version : Another Jihadi Attack in NYC – Another Incoherent Response

This week, a sharia-adherent muslim named Akayed Ullah wore an explosive vest that prematurely detonated, wounding Ullah and several others.

On the CBS Morning Show this week, John Miller said:

“(Ullah) was not particularly struggling financially or under any known pressure…was not on our radar at the NYPD, not on the FBI radar.”

Translation: “We have no idea what the motive could be.”

Miller continued: “He’s somewhat characteristic of what we’ve seen across the world, which is somebody who turns up one day out of the blue.”

Out of the blue? Is this a serious response. If NYPD believes this jihadi simply turned up out of the blue, it necessarily means there is no hope of preventing such attacks in the future

I get the point, but they should just be blunt. The motive was to impress Allah. All Muslims want to please their God, as do most Christians and Jews. Not all Muslims want to kill other people to do so. To profile potential terrorists among American Muslims, we have to look at the same factors that lead to non-Muslims who commit acts of mass violence: social withdrawal, mental health issues, making threats online and in person, and so on.

They are trying not to say bad things about Muslims. I managed to make a point without disparaging all Muslims. The other thing that needs to be considered is substance abuse among Muslims. They keep in secret because it is forbidden by their religion. And in Muslim countries the punishment for drinking alcohol or abusing drugs is severe. The guy who shot up the recruitment center in TN was not a devout Muslim until shortly before he committed the act-his motive was redemption for his sinful past. He was a substance abuser.

Al Queda required their recruits to be purified before committing an act of violent jihad. ISIS doesn't give a shit about purity, just kill infidels in Allah's name. These are all things that law enforcement should be looking at.
