Frontpage, by Daniel Greenfield, July 22, 2015:
Before and after 9/11, the FBI took a hard look at Youssef Abdulazeez because he had apparently donated money to Hamas through a front group. He went on a watch list. He went off the watch list. The FBI forgot about him until his son, Mohammod Youssef Abdulazeez, went on a Jihadist killing spree in Chattanooga.
Just like the Tsarnaev terrorists, the media is digging into the background of this dysfunctional Muslim family. We have learned that Youssef Abdulazeez liked to beat and rape his wife. He even wanted to get a second wife to rape and beat, as permitted “under Islamic law… in the parties’ native State of Palestine.” He also included some of his kids in his Koran-approved domestic abuse.
The family is issuing statements claiming that their son, like every Muslim terrorist ever, was suffering from “depression” and that Islam is a peaceful religion. But the father’s donations to Hamas and the rants about America, Israel and Europe on his family’s social media tell a very different story.
The only obvious conclusion from all this is that the Abdulazeez family, like the Tsarnaevs, should never have been allowed into this country. And after 9/11, they should not have been allowed to stay.
Their history of domestic abuse and terrorism is abnormal by American standards, but normal by Muslim ones. The Abdulazeez family’s native Jordan has unprecedentedly high levels of support for Al Qaeda and ISIS. Honor killings of women continue to have support from inside the political system.
Among Palestinian Muslims, like the Abdulazeez family, as many as 1 in 4 support ISIS. Palestinians who are displaced in their Jordanian homeland tend to affiliate with Jordan’s Muslim Brotherhood which supports their cause, much as they do in Gaza where Hamas is the local Muslim Brotherhood franchise. All that made Mohammod Youssef Abdulazeez into an even bigger threat to Americans.
Not only shouldn’t Mohammod Youssef Abdulazeez have been working at a nuclear power plant, he should never have been in this country. The Chattanooga massacre did not have to happen.
Palestinian Muslims are indoctrinated in terrorism to a degree exceeding even ordinary Muslims. Their immigrants, first and second generation, who have committed acts of terrorism, include Nidal Malik Hasan, who murdered 13 Americans at Fort Hood in support of the Taliban, Mohammed Salameh, Ahmed Ajaj and Nidal Ayyad who took part in the bombing of the World Trade Center and Ali Hassan Abu Kamal, who shot seven people on top of the Empire State Building.
Of the six deadliest Muslim terror attacks against Americans, half involved Palestinian Arabs.
Muslim immigration is already a bad risk. Palestinian Muslim immigration is a bad risk even by the standards of bad risks. Muslim terrorist attacks in America have been disproportionately carried out by Egyptians, Pakistanis, Saudis and Palestinians. The latter are disproportionately involved in terrorism despite being part of a small population because they are governed by PLO and Hamas terrorists.
The Palestinian Muslims are a fake nationality groomed to be terrorists; an artificial group invested with no other identity except terrorism, no history except bombings and no future except more bloodshed.
After Chattanooga we can either waste more time puzzling through the dysfunctional, and yet entirely normal relationships of the Abdulazeez family, or we can end further immigration by a group from a place where honor killings and terrorism are normative. The social, political and religious problems of the Abdulazeez family and the Tsarnaev family are not our problems. We foolishly made them our problem by taking them in. And it doesn’t take reforming the whole Muslim world to get rid of them.
Both the Tsarnaev and the Abdulazeez families may not have spent every waking moment plotting to kill Americans, but they distinctly disliked us. No matter how “ordinary” their sons seemed, how many parties they attended and, how many of their American friends saw nothing wrong with them, they were always ticking time bombs waiting for the right confluence of theology and anger to explode.
The people of Boston and Chattanooga unknowingly lived with these ticking time bombs. Ticking time bombs just like them are all around us; Muslim families with scowling fathers, timid mothers, a history of failed businesses, growing resentment toward the infidel, sons who drift through life despite good schools and numerous opportunities until they find their focus around the black flag of the Jihad.
Americans should not have to live with these ticking time bombs. We should not be spending a fortune on failed efforts to “deradicalize” people whose degree of radicalism we wouldn’t have to worry about if we weren’t wrongly allowing them into this country.
