It’s odd that we haven’t heard much about the case of Brahim Lajqi, which has been going on for a few years. Maybe that’s because he fits none of the narratives that liberals, open borders advocates, and Muslim apologists want us to believe. Lajqi, an Albanian Muslim who trained in Bosnian Islamic terrorist training camps came here illegally, arriving in the U.S. through the Mexican border. He falsified immigration documents, and took steps to carry out terrorist attacks on U.S. soil. Oh, and then there’s that one other tiny detail: he made threats against Jews, whom he specifically wanted to kill. But, strangely, as reader Duane points out, he wasn’t charged with committing a hate crime. Hey, anti-Semitism is still in fashion. (Just ask Charlie Sheen and John Galliano.) And by the way, Lajqi was here since the mid-1980s. So much for the myth that American culture “moderates” Muslims. We know it does not. They just adopt it for their jihadist purposes.

A Silver Spring man convicted of falsifying immigration documents had threatened to blow up the White House, the U.S. Treasury building, a federal courthouse and a Metro stop, vowing to “slaughter the enemies of Islam,” federal prosecutors said Monday in court.
Brahim Lajqi, 51, was not charged with attempting to carry out any terrorist threats [DS: Why the heck not?!], but prosecutors outlined the allegations in an effort to persuade U.S. District Judge Roger W. Titus to impose a penalty harsher than the six months or less in prison recommended by sentencing guidelines.
Titus agreed and handed down a five-year sentence, saying it was necessary for the protection of the public.
“This is a defendant who articulated repeatedly a desire to engage in the most serious form of terrorism aimed at symbols most important to our country, including the White House and the U.S. Capitol,” Titus said during a hearing in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt.
Lajqi, an ethnic Albanian who came to the United States through Mexico in the mid-1980s, is a self-described “extremist militant,” who said he was trained by Bosnian Muslim rebels, according to court papers. He was angry about American military involvement in Kosovo in the 1990s, and “blamed all Albanian deaths in Kosovo on the United States,” the court papers said. He also talked about targeting Jews, court papers say.
HUH?! Did we not send American bombs and American troops to help these Islamic ingrates against Christians in Kosovo? Yup, they never appreciate when we help them. Serves us right, helping these “peaceful” America-hating, Jew-hating cretins.
Lajqi had previously pleaded guilty to lying on immigration documents. . . .
According to court papers, Lajqi and a confidential informant rode around the Washington area to view potential targets. Lajqi said the White House was his “number one spot” but also talked about targeting a Metro train at rush hour, the papers say.
During another trip, the documents state, he suggested blowing up the Treasury building to “make them bankrupt and broke,” and noted that a dump truck would be a good place to hold explosives.
Lajqi told the informant that he knew of weapons suppliers in Montana and Canada and that one of his brothers had connections, authorities said.
The court papers say that Lajqi told the informant they “deserve a good bomb in Capitol Hill . . . and White House. Maybe Capitol Hill more because lots of Jews live there.” That conversation occurred during a trip they took to West Virginia, where Lajqi unsuccessfully tried to obtain a commercial driver’s license that he said could be used to move weapons.
Only five years for this guy??? He’ll be probably be out in just over three, when he should be in prison for life. I’ve seen drunk drivers–who weren’t targeting America–get far more time. This is absurd.
America . . . desperate but not serious about the Islamic threat.
