The Jihadi beat goes on

Reader comment on item: Why Would Anyone Want to Blow Up Times Square?

Submitted by EuskalHerria (United States), May 5, 2010 at 18:13

How can anyone who understands the teachings of the Qu'ran and Hadiths be surprised when Islamic terrorists carry out such acts as Faisal Shahzad? This was not the act of a down-and-out, poverty-stricken, persecuted man, but that of a committed ideologue. He is a naturalized Pakistani, well-educated, with visions of Islamic paradise in his mind. However, he was not truly committed to his mission, else he would have stayed with his car to make sure its explosives and inflammables did their job. Too bad, Faisal; no 72 virgins and "24 young boys like pearls" for you!

It is amazing, the naivete of Mayor Bloomberg and his supporters, who questioned the motivation behind the bombing - could have been some crazy anti-government right-wing nut, a "teabagger", perhaps; such incompetence and political correctness!

How many other would-be jihadists are there out there, biding their time before they act?
