Whenever an Islamic terrorist plot against America–by Muslims on our soil–is uncovered, we are often told by the media and government mouthpieces that discovering and stopping the plot was a result of Muslim outreach. We’re told that government and law enforcement officials kissing the rears of the most extremist Muslims has yielded valuable fruit: the saving of American lives. Some noble Muslim–as a result of government-sanctioned ankle-grasping–did the right thing and called the FBI.
But here’s a reality check: the stories and the statements are a lie. Take the JFK plot, disclosed to the public over the weekend. It turns out the sole confidential informant (CI) in the case is not a “noble Muslim” who is a “loyal American.” Nope. His only patriotism is to himself. He’s a twice-convicted drug dealer who did this for a more lenient sentence and for the money he got paid as an informant. There’s nothing noble or patriotic about it. And that’s the case for virtually all the cases involving Muslim CIs. They aren’t doing this out of any loyalty to America. Their community has none–as we saw from the recent Pew Research study of Muslim Americans.
But don’t let that little fact–that little truth–get in the way of mainstream press reporting, eager to gush over Muslim Americans and their “loyalty” and “patriotism.”
Exhibit A: ABC News. Last night on its evening newscast, ABC News Anchor Jon Berman and reporter Gigi Stone reported (video on upper right hand corner) that three years of outreach to the Muslim community by New York Police sachem Ray Kelly and his New York Police Department yielded the uncovering of the JFK plot. We were shown photos of Kelly embracing and shaking hands with radical Ahmed Jamil, President of the Dar Al-Dawah Mosque. Then, in the report Jamil told us how important outreach to his community is in stopping the terror attacks. We heard from Kelly and FBI spokesman (and former ABC News reporter and Bin Laden glorifier) John Miller, with clips that said nothing of the sort, but were used to imply that they share the same views as Stone and Berman.
But, again, reality check: The informant became an informant not because of any pandering “outreach,” not out of any new-found patriotism. He did it for two reasons and two reasons only: a lighter sentence and money.
He may be dead, but Peter Jennings’ Pan-Islamist form of “journalism” lives on at ABC.
Contrary to Ms. Stone’s propaganda-in-reporting, no-one from the Dar Al-Dawah Mosque was involved in uncovering this plot or any other. No-one from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)–which continues to denounce FBI and other law enforcement in the uncovering of these plots–helped.
Until and unless the vast majority of their community is convicted of a crime and looking to get a reduction in sentence–and to get paid while they’re at it–Muslims in America simply won’t help us to fight terrorism. They will only silently cheer it on and condemn the informants and law enforcement. As the Pew Research study showed us, they are Muslims first and Americans . . . when they take over.
The facts are simple: Almost all of the Muslim informants in major terrorism cases are criminals and others similarly down on their luck.
Not one is a Muslim who simply loves this country and wants to stop the killing of Americans.
And given that–despite FBI, ICE, and NYPD ass-kissing of their community–they still look down at and persecute informants who tell on other Muslims, don’t look for that to change one bit.
