Islamic Terrorist Sharif Mobley: Story, Lessons Are Old Hat; But US Keeps Ignoring Them

By Debbie Schlussel

So, all of the counterterrorism and national security world is abuzz with yesterday’s story about Sharif Mobley–a Muslim, American-born U.S. citizen and yet another Al-Qaeda terrorist wanted for several acts of terrorism, including murder.  But his story is really same ol’, same ol’.


Same Old Song & Dance:

Qaeda Terrorist Sharif Mobley & Aerosmith Have Something in Common

Yup, it’s the same old story.  American-born kid either is Muslim or converts to it.  (In this case, Mobley is of Somalian heritage, and how many times have I warned you about the Somalian extremist Muslim criminal wave and associated problems here in America?) Then, he’s so fervent in his beliefs that he tries to convert classmates.  But we look the other way because, ya know, Islam is a “Religion of Peace.”  And we can’t be “bigots” by discriminating or disturbing our sanguine radar with any concern.  So, he gets a job working at U.S. nuclear plant.  Because, hey, we can’t refuse work or even more carefully scrutinize a Muslim or a guy named Sharif who tried to convert high school classmates to Islam in high school.  No, that would violate federal civil rights laws, which–as we all know–trump national security concerns in this post-9/11, head-in-the-sand world.

And, of course, this fervent Muslim must be okay because, after all, he passed federal background checks and worked at three different nuke plants from 2002 to 2008.  Um, that’s exactly the kind of guy Al-Qaeda recruits to work in the nuclear industry and find ways to endanger America.  They’re not looking for a guy with a criminal record.  That’s why I always objected to–and continue to object–to the Trusted Traveler program.  There are a gazillion Muslim malefactors who would pass the screening . . . and then do harm, just as Sharif Mobley could have done.

And here’s another same old story:  Mobley showed all the Nidal Malik Hasan Muslim freak-out factors.  But just like with Hasan and Asan Akbar a/k/a Hasan Akbar, we ignored the signs–the outright statements, such as this one:

Roman Castro, 25, who did a tour with the Army in Iraq, said the last time he saw Mobley, about four years ago, Mobley yelled, “Get the hell away from me, you Muslim killer!”

Castro was a high school friend of Mobley’s from Buena, New Jersey.

Is that really the kind of guy we need working in three nuclear power plants?  And how did a guy like that pass federal background checks, unless the background check is useless and doesn’t interview those who know the guy, to uncover statements like this?

As Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler sings, “It’s the same old story, same old song and dance, my friend.”

So, now, a Black guy in Yemen is an American terrorist working with Al-Qaeda?  Shocker.  Because there are so many American Blacks in Yemen for legitimate reasons, right?  PUH-LEEZE.  We’ve already seen so many cases of American Black Muslims (and some White ones) going to Yemen to get even more radicalized.  Ditto for Northwest Flight 253 Islamic terrorist, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.

When will America wake up?  And when will the ultimate civil right–the right to life, your and my right to exist and survive and live and breathe free–take precedence over stupid civil rights so some extremist working for Al-Qaeda can get a job at three nuclear power plants?

Maybe when it’s too late.  And, frankly, it’s too late already.

Worked at 3 different plants? That sounds like he was casing the places and then moving on to the next when he had enough information for whatever they are planning.

Maybe holder and obama will give him a tour of NORAD so he can get the whole picture.

This was a great article. I am sick and tired of the PC bull. I am tired of having to tip toe around Muslims. How come we didn’t have terrorist attacks in the country 50 years ago? Because the Muslims weren’t here in numbers. They aren’t a religion of Peace. It is a system. I have a hard time calling it a religion as most of us know the meaning of religion. Thanks for the writings you do on this subject to expose this!

No true Muslim would become a terrorist, case one zillion.

Google “No True Scotsman Fallacy” 🙂

Only one word describes this guy…PATSY!

I guess none of the x million out of work non-jihadis qualified for a nuclear plant gig. I couldn’t have said it better; even after O and the gang are gone, the vestiges of entitlement and diversity trumping basic/real rights will live on via his appointees’ appointees and on down the line. The seeds of sleepless nights have been sown.

It is a laxity that will go on and on until, if even then, there is a sufficient body count associated with such malicious leniency. There really is no excuse for this, aside from an almost criminal level of callousness on the part of our government.

Well, at least in the United States these scumbags are apprehended and prosecuted. Unlike in Canada — try doing this here, and you’ll have all the pro-Islam lawyers out and the net result will be lawsuits, and the terrorist wannabe getting millions of taxpayers’ dollars. (The latest fiasco in Cana-duh is a suspected terrorist who was to be deported back to his home country, but then the pro-terrorist lawyers leaped to his defense, and they said, “Why he can’t be deported back to his Arab home country! They torture, torture people! He must remain in Canada.” But, the authorities couldn’t let the scumbag to roam free in Canada — too dangerous. So he was “detained” — note at any time he was free to return to his home country — but his lawyers (expecting a handsome payoff) told him to remain under “detention.” Eventually, of course, his lawyers get him out of detention. And, now, of course, there’s a civil suit — the Arab is demanding 25 million dollars in “compensation” (that’s cause he — in real life a pizza delivery boy — choice of his own free will to be “detained” and not return to his Arab country of birth.) Now, that’s how things work in Cana-duh. (Also, that other shakedown artist, M. Arar tried to scam the U.S. government in the same way he scammed Canada — but the American courts told him to take a hike.)

Somewhat off-topic, but more on the pro-terrorist lawfare going on in Canada — the Liberal Party is pursuing and pressing an allegation that Canadian officials knowingly turned over Afghan detainees who were then “tortured” (o, ironically, this occurred when the Liberals were in power), but the Liberals cannot bear the notion, the thought, that Muslims were tortured! tortured I tell you! And, thus (as we here in Cana-duh) are all too familiar with — the same M.O. of these people will be lawsuits and the rewarding of millions and millions of dollars to x number of Afghan detainees and their lawyers. How to get rich quick in Cana-duh.
