violent message outside a New York mosque
Yousef al-Khattab and Younes Abdullah Mohammed preach that the killing of U.S. troops overseas is justified. In their thinking, so were the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States -- and so are attacks on almost any American.
"Americans will always be a target "
This directly contradicts the statement issued by CAIR yesterday.
I also thought this article was hilarious for another reason:
So there are 4,000 people who come each day to listen to a preacher who speaks out forcefully against violence while two assholes stand outside preaching hatred, and the article spends most of its time focusing on the two assholes.They hand out fliers outside the gleaming 96th Street mosque, where up to 4,000 people visit every day. Inside the sleek, modernistic house of worship, Imam Shamsi Ali preaches against the violence that now sweeps many Muslim countries.
"What we try to do is reminding our people about the real Islam," Ali said. "We tell them what the real Islam is all about. Islam is about peace. Islam is about moderation. Islam is about friendship. Islam is opposed to any kind of hatred against anybody."
The mosque has called police on Al-Khattab and Mohammed several times, and passers-by occasionally engage them in heated debates. Ali told CNN that ordinary Muslims are "disgusted with their behavior."
Good to see they've got a sense of perspective.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
I think we'll find out soon enough that this guy fits into a profile of people who do this kind of "mass rampage." He's a loner; fearful/anxious; depressed; paranoid; socially inept; narcissistic; smart but narrow minded. His religion will play a role, but only in the political sense of "us v. them."
I'm also going out on a limb and say we'll find out he has had women rejection issues, is fearful of women (so as someone said it is indeed ironic he was brought down by a woman), and probably extremely suppressed sexually.
If he's primarily just read websites, been in a few chat rooms, and has extreme views but has not actually had any actual interactions or any sort of operational attachment in any way with a terrorist organization, then I consider him a lone nut job.
I don't think Lone Nut Jobs can perform acts of war
Since at this point there's been no evidence of him attempting to make apply some type of political pressure or induce some kind of fear into the population and wasn't targeting civilians in general to make his point, I don't know if I'd call it an act of terrorism either.
Perhaps if evidence comes out it was clear he did this because of his opposition to the War on Terror and was going after civilians staff members initially in hopes of scaring people into not risking their lives even locally by joining the military, then maybe I'd say its a terrorist act.......or if its found to have been something tied to a terrorist organization and facilitated/assisted/planned/encouraged by them.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
"God Bless Our Troops in Harms Way."
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
