ABC News reports that two men of “North African descent” were arrested last night by New York police. They are accused of trying to buy guns and hand grenades. Both men are adherents of the “religion of peace,” and were allegedly planning attacks on Manhattan synagogues. According to the report, the men are also being charged with hate crimes for saying during the undercover sting, “We hate the Jews.”
Last weekend, Rageh Al-murisi, a 28 year-old with a Yemeni passport, was arrested after he attempted to storm the cockpit of a Boeing 737 with 162 passengers on board as it was preparing to land in San Francisco. The Associated Press reports “Al-Murisi repeatedly yelled ‘Allahu Akbar,’ … and tried twice to open the cockpit door before being subdued by a crew member and several passengers.”
These two separate, and presumably unrelated, incidents have a common thread: radical Islam. Our political elites tell us that Islam is a “religion of peace.” Apparently they haven’t convinced the Islamists. And while our elites insist that we are not at war with Islam, the Islamic-inspired jihadists are clearly at war with us.
