Congrats, “American” Muslims. All those Ramadan receptions and dinners at Ahmed’s Falafel Hut with Homeland Security bigwigs were worth their weight in shawarmeh. The Department of Homeland Security has officially bought into your crappy–and completely phony–explanation of why you fly planes into buildings, behead people for being turned on by someone’s ugly nose, and spend all your time dreaming of a (blood) red Christmas (and every other day of the year).
The terrorism threat to the United States over the next five years will be driven by instability in the Middle East and Africa.
Um, no it won’t. It will be driven by one thing: Islam. Africa and the Mid-East have always been relatively unstable. Islam, NOT “instability,” is the cause of Islamic terrorism.
The Real Terrorist Threat Assessment is Simple . . .
Was the Mid-East any more “unstable” in 1993–the first attempt on the World Trade Center)–than it was in 1983? No. Was it more “unstable” on September 11, 2001 than it was in 1991? Not actually. While Hamas wasn’t around then, Yasser Arafat and the P.L.O.–their forefathers–were. And Hezbollah was growing larger in South Lebanon.
Oh, and by the way, just what do they mean by “instability” in the Middle East? I think we know, since Condoleezza Rice a/k/a Condi Clueless, George W. Bush, Sarah Palin, Barack Obama, and HAMAS advisor Jimmy Carter all mean the same thing when they’ve eached talked about the Mid-East: Israel and the lack for a terrorist Palestinian State–which each of these figures has pimped on us.
Then, there’s the rest of this waste of time “for official use only” threat assessment. It tells us that more Muslim terrorists will apply to become citizens here and that more of them will invade our borders and that there continue to be Hezbollah supporters raising money here. Duh! Glad they just discovered America. But not really. Under Michael Chertoff–who oversaw and approved this “threat assessmen”–Homeland Security continues to allow gobs of Muslims to come into the country as “students” and “tourists” or even as future citizens, granting them green cards and asylum for no worthy reason. DHS officials continue to break pita with open Hezbollah and HAMAS supporters and known fundraisers for the groups. And they continue to allow charities they raided–in meaningless show raids–to operate unfettered and continue to send funds to Al-Qaeda, HAMAS and Hezbollah.
Terrorists will continue to try to evade U.S. border security measures and place operatives inside the mainland to carry out attacks, the 38-page assessment said. It also said that they may pose as refugees or asylum seekers or try to exploit foreign travel channels such as the visa waiver program, which allows citizens of 34 countries to enter the U.S. without visas.
Long waits for immigration and more restrictive European refugee and asylum programs will cause more foreigners to try to enter the U.S. illegally. Increasing numbers of Iraqis are expected to migrate to the U.S. in the next five years; and refugees from Somalia and Sudan could increase because of conflicts in those countries, the assessment said.
Because there is a proposed cap of 12,000 refugees from Africa, officials expect more will try to enter the U.S. illegally as well. Officials predict the same scenario for refugees from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan.
Actually, they don’t need to enter illegally. As I’ve repeatedly noted and decried on this site over the years, they just need to get documents from a visa waiver country–one of the many that Michael Chertoff has made agreements with, allowing them to avoid visas to enter America. Way to go, Mikey.
(For all of you Palin worshippers, she supports this crap and amnesty, too.)
So, why exactly do they issue these “threat assessments” they don’t follow and continue to defy? Well, for us–to make us think they’re actually concerned, actually working to stop this.
Make no mistake. While AP brags that it got its hands on this “confidential” and “for official use only” memo, it’s no accident they got it and we’re reading about it. It was leaked by design and part of the general PR bunk about how safe we are because of Homeland Security’s efforts.
But actually, because of their efforts–allowing these people to continue to enter, stay here, and raise money for terrorist groups out in the open–we’re less safe than ever.
The real threat that needs to be “assessed”: Continuing to have so-called “Homeland Security,” federal law enforcement, and “Justice” Department officials who bend over backwards to pander to Muslims and creating and enabling the terrorist threat on our soil, to begin with.
