In Islam, September is a very important month. September 11, 1683 marked the end of the Ottoman Turks attempts to enslave all of Europe, with their defeat at the Battle of Vienna. It was the end of Islam in Europe. After that battle Muslims worldwide began to decline in stature, power and wealth. By the end of WWII, Islam was in such decline that its existence was in jeopardy. The discovery of oil and the resulting wealth that it created for Muslim nations was the beginning of Islam’s resurgence.
The attack on the World Trade Center, in New York City, on September 11, 2001, was not by coincidence. It was chosen to mark the renewed struggle against the ‘Crusaders’ in America. Over the past several days, five attacks have occurred from the New Jersey shores to St. Cloud, Minnesota. The timing of these attacks is no coincidence either.
What we know, so far, is that on September 15, 2016, a man attacked a police officer with an 11” meat cleaver. The New York press said the man was a deranged homeless man. However, according to Walid Shoebat, of Shoebat.com, the attacker, Akram Joudeh, a 32 year old Palestinian immigrant from Syria, made his desire to die a martyr for Islam, known on his Facebook page. He hid his martyr feelings in statements which were in Arabic on the page. To justify his quest for martyrdom he quoted two Qur’anic Surahs, each of which commands followers of Mohammad to fight and kill infidels.
What is known is that New York Police Detective Brian O’Donnell was struck with the cleaver, on his head. We also know that Joudeh was so radicalized with his desire to kill police officers that it took a total of 18 gunshot wounds to stop the attack. He was tasered, prior to the attack on O’Donnell, that didn’t even slow him down, and while being shot after attacking the detective, he continued slashing at O’Donnell, and then lunging at other officers.
Two days later, September 17, 2016, three separate terrorist attacks occurred. The first was at 9:30 a.m. in Seaside Park, New Jersey, when a pipe bomb exploded in a plastic trash can. Inside that can several unexplored pipe bombs were still connected. The site was chosen because a 5k race to benefit Marines and sailors was scheduled to pass at the time of detonation. No one was injured in this event because the race was delayed when an unattended backpack was found by police patrolling the area.
Eleven hours later, at 8:30 p.m. a bomb exploded at West 23rd Street in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood. That bomb injured 29 people. Police, always fearful of a secondary device, searched several blocks and found a second, similar device in a garbage dumpster, a few blocks away. Both of these devices are pressure cooker type bombs, like that used in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.
One hour later, a knife wielding man, as of the time of this report not identified by police, stabbed nine people at the Crossroads Mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota. The man was shouting Allah Akbar as he carried out the attack. At one point, before stabbing one victim, he asked if she was Muslim. As the man continued the rampage he ran into an off-duty police officer, Jason Falconer, who ended the attack by killing the man. During a press conference the Mayor of St. Cloud lauded Officer Falconer’s actions stating that he saved many lives.
The mayor went on to recount a video of the incident that he had seen, stating that Officer Falconer first put the offender on his knees, approximately 20 feet away, but the man lunged at the officer. The officer shot and the man went down, then rose and tried to attack the officer again. The man was shot a second time, went down and again got up and lunged at the officer. The officer finally put an end to the attack, only inches away from him, with a fatal shot into the attacker. This would be martyr, who is believed to be a Somali immigrant, showed the same fanaticism that the New York knife wielding attacker demonstrated.
On September 19, just after midnight, another bomb exploded as officers tried to move it from its location in Elizabeth, New Jersey. This too was a series of pipe bombs that were found by a citizen. Hours later, at 10:30 a.m. the suspect, Ahmad Khan Rahami, an immigrant from Afghanistan, was found sleeping in the doorway of a bar in Linden, New Jersey. When Linden officers confronted him, he opened fire on them, injuring at least three of them. He was shot several times before being taken into custody. His fanaticism matched that of all the other Islamist extremists who exacted a toll of deaths and injuries this weekend.
These incidents are not coincidence. All of them are related to Islam and the desired resurrection of Muslim dominance. I know that Americans do not believe that we could ever be subjected to Islam and its sharia law, but Islamists do not know that. They believe that they can and will defeat us. Look at Europe today. Muslims control areas of Great Britain, France, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Italy and even tiny Luxembourg. Projections are that by 2050 Muslims will be the majority of each country, simply by birth rates alone. Here, in America, we are inviting Muslims into our country at an alarming rate. There have been more Muslim immigrants into America after the attacks on 9-11-2001, then in all years prior to then, combined.
We are facing the collapse of Western civilization, and not a single shot needs to be fired. Yet, fundamental Muslims do not want to simply wait. They wish to show their superiority by terrorizing us into submission. It isn’t working on me, but it is on many. The leftists of this country have already surrendered and many on the right don’t seem to care. This weekend should be a wakeup call to all of us. Islam is on the march and has its sights clearly on America. We either join in the fight against it, or, like those on the left, embrace it.
