Zero Islamic Terror Attacks: What London and America Need to Learn from Japan

In 2016, London’s mayor said Islamic terror attacks are just part of living in a big city.

There’s just one major problem with that.

The biggest city in the world hasn’t even had a single terrorist attack from a radical Muslim.

Tokyo, Japan boasts the largest population of any city, and they’ve got their problems, including a declining population, but Islamic terrorism isn’t one — not a single one.

There’s a few logical reasons for this.

Japan has a long history and tradition of extremely strict immigration policies, making it one of the highest homogeneous countries in the world, next to Korea. Japanese make up 98.5% with the next highest ethnic group as Koreans at 0.5%, then Chinese with 0.4%, and other at a whopping 0.6%.

In the West, diversity is seen as a moral superiority and objective, but wide open doors to Islamic extremists only invites terrorism.

From 9/11 to the Boston Marathon bombing to San Bernardino to the Pulse nightclub massacre — America has seen brutal terror attacks done in the name of radical Islam.

President Donald Trump was elected in large part because of his promise to secure the Southern border, get “tough” on illegal immigration, and “defeat” radical Islamic terrorism.

Each attempt Trump does to make America safer and more secure, he is met with protests from the mainstream media, Hollywood elites, and liberals across the coasts.

In stark contrast, London Mayor Sadiq Khan ran on diversity, and in September of last year, said the threat of terror attacks are “part and parcel of living in a big city.”

How did the West come to expect terror attacks in bigger cities? According to Tucker Carlson, “It wasn’t always this way. We made it this way.”

Carlson points out we brought this upon ourselves, or rather “the people in charge” through “reckless immigration policies…that none of us were asked to endorse, much less vote on.”

“Some of us didn’t even know they were happening,” he added, and I couldn’t agree more.

“Western cities got dangerous when they imported radical religious ideologies from other countries,” he said, and I’ll add the nuance, those are from the Islamic faith — not the Buddhists, Pentecostals, Baptists, Lutherans, or Catholics.

Tucker continued:

“Nobody from government wants to admit that, because it reflects poorly on them, but it’s true, and increasingly voters know it’s true, despite the official ban on saying it’s true.”

“In heavily Islamic areas terror is depressingly common. Elsewhere it is vanishably rare.”

I couldn’t agree more with Tucker, and the facts back us up as well.

Interestingly, President Trump’s first meeting with a foreign leader was UK Prime Minister Theresa May, who had to be rushed to safety Wednesday when Parliament came under threat of a terror attack.

May described the attack as “sick and depraved,” but sadly it has become accepted as a norm for many in the West.

Getting back to Tokyo, though. The United States could learn a vital lesson from our friends in Japan.

President Trump met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe as president-elect and just a couple weeks after hosting May at the White House.

Trump reaffirmed his promise to Abe that he has spoken to the public many times: “America First.”

Although Trump was mostly referring to trade, this could be broadened to include national security.

You know, Japan doesn’t have to worry about homegrown terrorism.

If America doesn’t want to become another London, we have to pause, and ask ourselves if we really want to tolerate any more terror — haven’t enough American lives been taken at the hands of jihadists?

This doesn’t have to be our reality. We can change it. Let’s take a lesson from Japan.

Please carry through on your promise, Mr. President. Let’s Make America Safe Again.

Ft. Lauderdale shooter used alias ‘Aashik Hammad’, recorded Islamic music in social media

The media and law enforcement have told us over and over that Esteban Santiago is merely a madman, so the Fort Lauderdale horror is more like a Columbine, not a Brussels Airport mass slaughter. But thanks to detective work that should be the sort of review the FBI would undertake if somebody came in and spoke about voices in his head and ISIS, we know that Santiago showed every sign of converting to Islam long before his deployment to Iraq.

Pamela Geller cites a Got News report and gets right to the point:

Estaban Sanitago’s aka Aashiq Hammad journey to Islam goes back at least 10 years. His MySpace page is eyeopening.  More news the enemedia ignores, censors, scrubs – thanks to Charles Johnson over Got News.

As for mental illness, that is now the default cover for Islam. It was “lone wolf” until the number of ‘lone wolves’ made the narrative ridiculous and absurd. Now Islam is a mental illness.

The evidence presented by Got News, complete with images of public records, ties Esteban Santiago directly to a MySpace account created in the name Aashik Hammad, where  three Islamic songs recorded by Santiago were available.  I urge readers to examine the evidence themselves, and then imagine being an Anchorage FBI official confronted with a young man who heard voices in his head. Would you try to obtain a social media profile? I understand that law enforcement in general, and the FBI in particular, are pretty good at checking social media profiles these days.

So, if the FBI discovered someone is crazy, and is also a Muslim, is that a danger sign? I suspect that the doctrine used by the FBI currently does not allow agents to make such a connection, even though the Koran has many injunctions toward violent jihad.

In any event, with so many people wondering why Santiago was allowed to bring a gun on a flight, isn’t it interesting that nobody in law enforcement and nobody in the major media has yet connected Santiago and Islam publicly? I suspect that the public would be even more critical of the failure to prevent Santiago’s evil. The problem is that the awful truth is unspeakable by most of our government officials and media: Islamic doctrine contains multiple, direct incitements to violence against infidels, and Jews in particular.

Who is more vulnerable to,influence by these commands than a mentally ill man? Pamela Geller’s observation that mental illness is a cover rests on the foundation that most of the acts of cruelty of jihadists seem to be insane by the standards of contemporary Western Civilization. But in the Islamic world, the example of Mohammed — the most perfect man ever born and a model for all Muslims, according to Islamic doctrine — teaches that hearing voices is a sacred act.

Jihad motivation could explain why Santiago made such a long journey – close to the longest possible journey within the continental United States – to be in Fort Lauderdale. The catchment area of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport happens to be the home of many Jews.  If one were choosing the airport with the highest concentration of Jewish passengers, Fort Lauderdale would be a logical selection. Anchorage Airport, not so much.

This guy being a danger of turning jihadist doesn’t seem that remote to me.

Unless, of course, law enforcement is not allowed to consider being a Muslim anything to take note of.

How many more killers sworn to attack America will Obama release?

99339897

 Earlier this week, President Obama transferred 4 Guantanamo detainees to Saudi Arabia. That leaves 55 hardened terrorists incarcerated at Camp Delta.

But before he leaves office, the president is planning to transfer up to 22 more prisoners to various countries, despite the fact that the review board set up to determine which prisoners can safely be released says that many of those remaining terrorists have promised to return to jihad.

The 4 detainees transferred to Saudi Arabia will undergo “rehabilitation” therapy at a facility the Kingdom says has had great success in “deprogramming” violent terrorists.

Breitbart:

In recent weeks, the number of detainees who are expected to be set free by the end of Obama’s tenure on January 20 has varied by news agencies from 17 to 19.

Earlier this week, the White House responded to incoming President Donald Trump’s urging to stop transferring prisoners out of Guantánamo, saying it plans to liberate more detainees before Obama leaves office.

The Obama administration reportedly told Congress last month that the sitting president would reduce the population of Guantánamo, also known as Gitmo, by 19 to 40 detainees.

Now, the Daily Mail reports:

President Obama is planning to transfer at least 22 additional Guantanamo Bay detainees out of the military detention center before he leaves office later this month, DailyMail.com has learned.

The group being released will be drawn from those held at Guantanamo – who include an accused senior al Qaeda bomb-maker, the terror group’s top financial manager, and two intended 9/11 hijackers, who have all been held in the Cuba-based U.S. detention facility for more than a decade.

Of the 59 prisoners still held at Gitmo, 22 have been cleared for release by Obama’s multi-agency parole-style board known as the Periodic Review Board (PRB) and nearly half (27) are considered “forever prisoners,” or too dangerous to release.

However, the PRB has made the decision to liberate prisoners who had already been designated too dangerous to release, which means the “forever prisoner” designation has not prevented the Obama administration from transferring out detainees.

According to the Miami Herald, the remaining 10 prisoners are still undergoing war crimes proceedings at military commissions, including six who are facing death penalty tribunals.

The Daily Mail reports:

The list of “recommended for transfer” prisoners includes a number of top al Qaeda operatives and commanders

[…]

Some of the recommended transfers have also vowed to return to jihad if they are ever released, according to reports from US military officials. They have also threatened to assassinate the U.S. president, kill American citizens, and attack other world leaders who are allied with the West.

This is what happens when national security is pushed aside in favor of a political agenda. President Obama promised to close the prison camp at Guantanamo Bay and he is willing to sacrifice American lives to fulfill that pledge.

As for the Saudi “deprogramming” facility, the Middle East Institute’s study of the program found that it “has proven unable to rehabilitate the most radical and dangerous militants. Furthermore, the program’s utility as a model for other nations is limited by its reliance on Saudi-specific factors.”

The recidivism rate of Gitmo detainees returning to the fight is close to 30%. That’s nearly one in three terrorists – a low number considering how dangerous the remaining prisoners are considered to be.

President-elect Trump opposes any more releases from Gitmo, but he is helpless until January 20. Trump will be left to deal with any potential fallout from Obama’s release of people who want to kill Americans.
