New Muslim Terrorist Attacks Expected in America and Europe

Intelligence officials are saying that there is a heightened chance of another significant terrorist attack here in the United States. The ABC report avoids the use of the word "Muslim" but it is clear that Muslim terrorists are the ones now feared. They cite recent attempted terrorist attacks here.
The attacks cited included:

The disruption of a plot to bomb the New York City subway by Najibullah Zazi, a naturalized U.S. citizen, last September.

The attack at Ft Hood Texas by gunman Army Maj. Nidal Hassan which resulted in 13 people killed and over 30 wounded.

The attempted Christmas Day bombing of Northwest Airlines flight 253 by alleged al Qaeda operative Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.

The averted May 1 bombing in Times Square by Faisal Shahzad.

Europe is now on high alert for a threatened Muslim attack on transportation hubs.  ADN Kronos has the story:
The commander of French police and security services Frederic Pechenard said on radio Wednesday they had "serious evidence coming from reliable intelligence sources telling us there is a risk of a major attack."

Al-Qaida in North Africa was targeting France in particular, he said.

The threat included "the assassination of an important figure or an attempted mass casualty attack on a crowded public area like a metro train or department store," Pechenard said.

One of the main prospective targets for the suicide bombings is reportedly the Gare du Nord station in Paris, where trains depart for London and cities in Italy, Belgium and Switzerland.

The Islamic threat has replaced the old Communism threat and appears even more dangerous.  After all, we didn't allow millions of Communists to immigrate and conduct sedition.

Ah, the wonders of multiculturalism! Our diversity is our most important strength!

Islam is the enemy.  Do we have the will to admit this truth and do something to stop the threat?  Personally, I doubt it.  Western civilization is in the full course of committing suicide.

The old paradigms do not work.  If we are to survive Islam, more effective and even radically new strategies will have to be implemented.  Gone is the notion of America "the melting pot," where any and all cultures may immigrate and seamlessly blend.  We need to rid ourselves of the notion that, once here, a hostile alien culture cannot be removed.

While I completely agree with you on the point of your overall post, I will have to take issue with "The Islamic threat has replaced the old Communism threat and appears even more dangerous". Ah, how soon we forget! The Commies were in immediate danger of nuking us and killing every single person on Earth, they came within a hair's breadth of it a couple times, and if they pressed the button there wasn't a darn thing we could do about it. Islam more dangerous than that? Hardly! The fact is that, unlike Communism (which is still a threat), we could squash the Islamic threat like a bug right now any time we choose to. The real threat is the weakness in our own society that prevents us from recognizing the threat and acting.

Here's why you're wrong:
1. With the Communist threat, we knew who the enemy was and there was no doubt. With Islam, many people are still under the impression that we are merely dealing with a religion instead of an existential threat. We do not enjoy the same moral clarity as we did against Communism.

2. With Communism, we had a nuclear deterrent and "mutually assured destruction" to prevent an attack. With Islam, we have no such deterrent because Muslims crave martyrdom and welcome such a conflagration (see Ahmadinejad in Iran).

3. With Islam we have millions of Muslims immigrating throughout the West and tens of thousands of potential terrorists. We are being infiltrated on a substantial scale, much more so than the Communists could ever hope to do.

Those terrorists are in an actual position to do us physical harm, more so that the Soviet Union ever had a chance for.

4. Muslims in the West are breeding like rabbits and demographically will replace our civilization in 50 to 100 years without firing a shot. Merkel of Germany said this week that Germany will eventually be an Islamic republic. The Muslim leader of Libya has said the same thing: the West will be replaced by Muslim birthrates.

So yes, Islam is substantially more dangerous than the Communist threat ever was.

I don't doubt that the jihadomaniacs are ever plotting.

But why would ABC News emphasize the threat? To plant in American voters' minds that they should stay with the current administration? After all, ABC shills for BHO at every opportunity.

Stogie said...

AOW, no doubt that is true about ABC. However, if the claim is false, it would seem to backfire on them, since they are seen as weak on security and the new team would no doubt do a better job.

Europe is also on high alert, so the threat is probably real.

I don't think we're really in disagreement here. What I meant was that, while we are truly currently in greater danger than we were during the Cold War, the degree of that danger is not inherent in Islam itself, but rather in the fact that the danger of Islam is magnified by our own willful ignorance of the threat. In other words, Communism would have also been a much greater threat than it was had we chosen to ignore its danger the way we do with Islam. Absent that level of willful ignorance that our society has embraced, Islam, while still very dangerous, would be something that our nation could handily defeat. Imagine if our nation fully realized the threat of Islam, was aware of it, and united against it, expelled those who support and endorse it, and truly defended our borders against the physical and cultural invasion. In that case, would Islam, while still a danger, pose anywhere near the level of threat that it currently does? I don't think so. Communism, on the other hand, could have nuked us regardless of our awareness of it, and MAD would not have prevented an accidental nuking as almost happened in '83. My point is that the danger of Communism was inherent in Communism, whereas the fact that Islam poses a greater threat than the Reds did is inherent in what we have become - full of Progressive cultural weakness and self loathing, and no nation in that condition will survive any major threat. If we fix that problem, Islam becomes an annoying gnat.

Stogie said...

Okay, I see your point and we are in agreement. My feeling that Islam is the greater threat is due to what you mention: cultural weakness and a lack of will to resist.

I gotta disagree with the part about not allowing commies into the country. When was the last time you set foot on a college campus?

If we want to return America to the principles it was founded on we have to take back the education system and I don't care if we start with elementary schools or colleges, but if we don't do this we lose.

Stogie said...

Vegas, I was referring to imported commies from the Soviet Union, not homegrown ones. I agree that the college campus is currently enemy territory and that we must oust the Marxists and restore pro-American teaching and professors.

kate said...

Stogie ,oui, je pense que l'islam est l'ennemi , mais ceux qui vénèrent l'islam aussi sont nos ennemis car ils veulent tous notre perte ,nous sommes des" mécréants impurs " pour eux , et le coran leur ordonne de nous exterminer !

Stogie said...

Kate says: Stogie, I agree that Islam is the enemy, but those who practice Islam are also our enemies because they desire our destruction, as we are "infidels" to them, and the Koran orders them to exterminate us!
