Here's the first and last rule of Islamic jihad: If at first you don't succeed, plot, plot again.
9/11 wasn't the first. 9/11 won't be the last. It's not "fear-mongering" to face reality. These head-chopping, throat-slitting, bloodthirsty hijackers — of planes, freedom and civilization — have conspired for decades to inflict modern mass murder on the West. Their homicidal mission is spectacular destruction in the name of the Koran.
Never forget: Eternal Muslim hatred of infidels didn't start with George W. Bush. Or George Herbert Walker Bush. Or Ronald Reagan. Or the creation of Gitmo. Or the birth of Israel. Or the Twin Towers. Or the Khobar Towers. Or Lockerbie. Or the U.S.S. Cole. Or Fort Hood. Or the Beirut Marine barracks bombings. Or the bombings of the U.S. embassy in Africa, the bombing of U.S. military headquarters in Riyadh and the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi.
Allah's animals can't stop. They won't stop. Sura 9:5, the verse of the sword, commands them to "slay the idolators wherever you find them, and take them, and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush." No "pagan" throat is safe: American soldiers, worldly journalists, innocent schoolgirls, Jewish teenage boys and Christian missionaries alike are all targets of Sura 47's call to "smite the necks" of the unbelievers.
Now our impuissant president sees fit, after two laggard terms in office, to unveil a "plan" for "degrading and ultimately destroying" the Muslim terrorists of ISIS.
To call the Obama administration's trifling gestures a "bump in the road" to Islamic domination would be an overstatement of astronomic proportions. The bloodless words of the White House are rhetorical pebbles.
While Barack Obama singles out ISIS jihad gangsters for a $5 billion kabuki counterterrorism campaign, he continues to subsidize Hamas terrorists.
He has freed countless al-Qaida recidivists from the very Gitmo detention facility he vowed to shut down to appease international jihad enablers of the Kumbaya/Coexist coalition.
Obama's jihad enablers have rolled out the red carpet at the White House for Islamist funders and frontmen, including:
-Esam Omeish, former head of the Muslim Brotherhood-sponsored Muslim American Society and patron of jihad cleric Anwar Awlaki, whom he helped install at Virginia's notorious Dar al-Hijrah mosque. (That's the same mosque where two 9/11 hijackers, terrorist financier Abdul Rahman al-Amoudi and Fort Hood Muslim mass murderer Nidal Hasan all worshiped.)
— Sheikh Abdullah bin Bayyah, a top lieutenant of Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yusuf Qaradawi, who urges followers to kill every last Jew, sanctioned suicide bombings and the killing of our soldiers, and declared that the "U.S. is an enemy of Islam that has already declared war on Islam under the disguise of war on terrorism and provides Israel with unlimited support."
—Hisham al-Talib, another Qaradawi cheerleader welcomed at the White House by Obama's Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Al-Talib is an Iraqi-born Muslim identified by the FBI as a Muslim Brotherhood operative and a major contributor to the left-wing Center for Constitutional Rights, the group of jihadi-sympathizing lawyers who helped spring suspected Benghazi terror plotter Abu Sufian bin Qumu from Gitmo.
While Obama has been hitting the golf courses and Hollywood fundraisers over the past two terms, the relentless jihadists have been training, recruiting, practicing, testing and refining.
They've infiltrated our prisons, our military and our universities.
They've penetrated our borders, abused our toothless visa programs and exploited our indiscriminate refugee system to import and export the next generation of soldiers of Allah around the world.
They're experimenting with shoe bombs, underwear bombs, ink bombs, dry ice bombs and cargo bombs.
Their dry runs on airliners continue unabated as our Federal Air Marshal Service shrinks from insufficient funds and abandonment.
They command their own rogue freighter and aviation fleets.
While Obama finally gets around to reading his teleprompter vow to destroy ISIS this week, Osama bin Laden's heirs are diligently fulfilling their 20-year plan. According to al-Qaida documents and intelligence released nearly a decade ago, the Islamic avengers are already in their fifth phase of "declaration of the caliphate or the Islamic state."
Next comes "total war" and "final victory" by 2020, helped along by demographic domination: "The Islamic state's capabilities will be great beyond measure when Muslims would number more than 1.5 billion."
Jihadist hijackers and head-choppers don't quit. Appeasement and empty threats are no deterrence. They will not stop trying to outdo 9/11 — unless, through our deadly adherence to political correctness, apathy, amnesia, open borders and sloth, we do ourselves in first.
