“I will never forget, I will never forget Todd Beamer’s name, I will never forget ‘let’s roll’, and I am ashamed to say I will never forget the sheep in the streets of London. Choose you today, who do you serve, choose today, life or death? Choose today what the future is you want your children to live under. Freedom? Freedom where yes at times we can be divisive? Or death? Because that is your choice. ‘Submit or die.’ As for me and my family, I choose God.”

“Terror is a tactic, and I’ll tell you who’s using that tactic; well I’ll tell you a few people, but the main group who are using this tactic are crazy ass Muslims. And that’s what needs to be said, not ‘we’re going to look into this’. The guy had a butcher knife, blood on his hands and was saying allah[u] ackbar. What more do you need Sherlock.”
– Glenn Beck, Radio 5-24-13 H1, on whether the British beheader [who was on camera of the two] is a ‘terrorist’.
“If we surrender the Constitution out of fear, the terrorists win.”
“Whether it’s labeling Fort Hood a work place shooting, blaming Benghazi on a video, calling the marathon bombers ‘religious extremists’, the Muslim Brotherhood ‘secular’, deleting ‘radical Islam’ from terror training manuals, or the backing of the Ground Zero Mosque, this administration goes out of its way to cow tow to the Muslim community despite its obvious problems with radicals.”

Means, opportunity and motive are the three crucial elements of investigating a crime and establishing the guilt of its perpetrator. Many crimes cannot be narrowed down by motive until a suspect is on the scene; but acts of terrorism can be. Almost anyone might be responsible for a random killing; but political killings are carried out by those who subscribe to common beliefs. Eliminate motive from terrorism and it becomes no different than investigating a random killing. If investigators are not allowed to profile potential terrorists based on shared beliefs rooted in violence, that makes it harder to catch terrorists after an act of terror and incredibly difficult before the act of terror takes place.
The insidious infiltration of blowback theory into terrorist investigations has dangerously subverted the ability of investigators to get to the truth and to catch the terrorists. Blowback theory assigns each act of Islamic terror an origin point in our actions. Everything that Muslim terrorists do is caused by something that we did. To those who believe in this linkage, the only way to fight Muslim terror is to stop inspiring it. The only way to defeat Islamic terrorism is to defeat ourselves.
Blowback theory has been dressed up in academic language and expert jargon, but all it amounts to is Stockholm Syndrome with a lecture hall. Its essential postulate is that if we become more passive in our responses, a strategy that is usually described with the complementary term, “smart”, as in “smart war” and “smart investigation”, then the enemy will become more passive in response to our passivity.
Smart wars and smart investigations are those that don’t offend Muslims. The cost of the smart war in Afghanistan has been a very expensive and bloody defeat. The cost of the smart investigation can be seen in the streets of Boston or in Fort Hood.
Defeating ourselves in order to defeat Islamic terrorism is a dead end because we are not the source of that terrorism; we are its target. When we handicap ourselves out of a misguided notion that the best way to fight terrorism is with one hand tied behind our backs and an eyepatch on one eye, then Americans die.
Without Islam as a motive, there is no way to fight the larger threat except as a discrete collection of seemingly random events. What connects a Tamerlan Tsarnaev to a Nidal Hasan to Ahmed in Jersey City or Mohamed in Minneapolis plotting the next attack? The official answer is nothing. One was a boxer and another was an army doctor and the third is just an Egyptian student or a Somali bank clerk. They have no motive in common except that of Islam.
Without a motive, there is no place to begin searching. Without Islam, there is no motive. Terrorism denial isn’t just an intellectual error; it is a grave danger to the lives of Americans.
Terrorism denial created a space in which the Tsarnaev brothers were free to plot and kill. Terrorism denial cost the lives of three Americans and the bodily integrity of hundreds of others. Denying the Islamic motive for terror, makes it harder for law enforcement officer to do their job and easier for Muslim terrorists to do theirs.
“A number of years ago the Muslim Brotherhood basically took over the Chechen Jihad [in the late 80s when the senior leader was killed], and let me add that a lot of the support for the Chechen Jihad was coordinated right here in the United States. In fact there was a group in San Diego, another outfit in Chicago, that was coordinating aid and providing aid to the Chechen Jihadists before 9-11 and those ended up getting shut down after the 9-11 attacks.”

But you can’t own a gun because you can’t be trusted.
“Why are we taking rifles away from the American People and sending tanks and F16s to the Muslim Brotherhood? Something wrong there? How about you send a tank or an F16 to a tea party, would you do that? No. But the Muslim Brotherhood? Absolutely.”
