In the rolling hills of east Tennessee, America snapped awake on July 16th around 10:40 am, when the peaceful morning silence was shattered, and Mohammed Youssef Abdulazeez, a Muslim terrorist, opened fire on the Armed Forces Recruitment Center (Old Lee Highway) in Chattanooga, TN, with an AK-47 and several other weapons. Within minutes he traversed the seven miles to the Navy Operational Support Center, and he continued his murderous rampage, that left four brave Marines dead and America angry and grieving.
The Marines murdered that Thursday morning were Gunnery Sergeant Thomas Sullivan, recipient of two Purple Haerts, Lance Cpl Skip Wells, Sgt Carlson Holmquist and Staff Sgt David Wyatt, from Mike Battery, 3rd Battalion, 12th Marines. Several of these men had previously survived multiple tours of duty in both Afghanistan and Iraq and the battles of Fallujah and Abu Ghraib; Navy Petty Officer Randall Smith died early Saturday, leaving behind a wife and three young daughters.
They all had families. They were fathers, husbands and sons, and they were friends.
Carolyn Taylor and Marilyn Hutcheson, both employees of Bingswater Glass across the street from the Navy building on Amnicola Highway, described hearing the gunfire. Taylor said she heard “at least 100” gunshots, while Hutcheson said “it was rapid fire, like pow pow pow pow.” Both women noted the rapid response of the police and SWAT and federal authorities, with guns drawn, and medical emergency teams: How different things might have ended if only those Marines had been armed too.
Ray Mabus, Secretary of Navy, called the shootings “both devastating and senseless.” He added, “While we expect our sailors and Marines to go into harm’s way, and they do so without hesitation, an attack at home, in our community, is insidious and unfathomable,”
Ed Reinhold, FBI Special Agent in Charge, said, “We’re going to do an intense look at him … anybody who is associated with him to determine the cause or reason why he conducted this attack.”
More than an “act of domestic terrorism”, as asserted by U.S. Attorney Bill Killian, a known Muslim appeaser, it’s Islam stupid, for those who still need things spelled out for them. By its very nature, Islam is a radical and extreme ideology _ twisted, perverted, evil and violent _ and Abdulazeez was simply a devout adherent. He was not “radicalized.” He was practicing Islam just as it has been practiced from the days of the Prophet Mohammed, despite the numerous fallacies that suggest Islam is “a religion of peace.”
A founding member of the Islamic Center of Chattanooga, Dr Said Ayhar Sheikh asserts that Abdulazeez only heard messages of peace there. If this was the case, why didn’t he immediately reject the violent jihadists’ so-called “perversion” of Islam?
Abdulazeez was a Kuwaiti born in Jordan with family ties in Nablus in the West Bank, who became a naturalized U.S. citizen; and, while he was not on any terror watch list, his father had been investigated several years ago for giving financial support to Hamas, a terrorist organization. Mohammed Abdulazeez should have been on a watch list however, in light of his trip to Jordan in 2014, when he could have contacted jihadists of the Islamic State (ISIS), who have regularly called for “lone wolf” attacks in the U.S. on military and police, especially during the month of Ramadan (July).
Three days before the attack, SITE Intelligence Group, a terror watchdog, found Abdulazeez had written online that “life is short and bitter” and Muslims should not miss an opportunity to “submit to Allah.” This has now been verified by Fox News.
The Daily Beast focused on Abdulazeez’s post, entitled ‘A Prison for Dunya’ that suggested he was seeking martyrdom, reading in part: “We talk about the Sahaba (disciples) and their lbada (worship) … But did you ever notice that … towards the end of the lives of the Sahaba, almost every one of the Sahaba was a political leader or an army general? Every one of them fought Jihad for the sake of Allah.”
After the attack, ISIS posted this message to Americans: “O American dogs, soon you will see … a fierce conflict … for your destruction, my sword has been sharpened … We have marched by night, to cut and behead … .”
On July 8th, FBI Director James Comey warned a Senate panel about the threat of a terror attack in America, stating, “This is not your grandfather’s Al Qaeda.” He noted that he could not stop ISIS “forever.”
“Lone Wolf”? __ There are hundreds of thousands of “lone wolf” Muslims in America, just like Abdulazeez. Anwar al-Awlawki and Nidal Hassan, who go to school here, sometimes first grade through graduate school, and have resumes that read like ordinary resumes similar to the one Abdulazeez sent to AAON requesting work as an engineer. They take advantage of all the liberty and benefits of our society, while their inner soul is filled with hatred for our society that gives them so much. And they finally reveal themselves through heinous terror, such as Abdulazeez committed; the record is replete with such cases from the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993 to the present.
Americans cannot continue allowing more Muslims into the U.S., since it will only ensure the same terroristic turmoil we witness daily in the Middle East and parts of Europe. As our Muslim population grows, we will bear witness to an ever increasing number of assorted terrorist attacks, exponentially broader in scope and size. Let’s hope that Iran doesn’t send along a nuke with an Islamic State or Hamas “immigrant.”
Why are we inviting the world’s terrorists into America, as they praise this recent act of terror?
Americans are allowing the nation to be invaded by Muslims, who do not wish to assimilate and come from an Islamic culture where terrorism has become a way of life. They come here to change our fundamental culture and our values. They want to conquer and colonize us; that’s not immigration, and that’s precisely why we must deport all non-citizen Muslims and any Muslim with terrorist ties.
Let us do all we can to ensure that we do not lose more Americans to more despicable acts of terrorism. We must cast aside political correctness, profile the Muslim community here and abroad, and adopt a pro-American immigration policy. And wherever we find the terrorists, kill the hell out of them, until they understand that Allah isn’t with them.
