Reader comment on item: L.A.'s Thwarted Terror Spree

Submitted by Faqi Husssain (United States), Sep 7, 2005 at 03:48

"Radical islam is just a new overblown threat emerging after the ruins of communism to serve as a writ for America to keep helping Israel (through strong Jewish organizations). The risk from islamists is minimal to nothing in America. What have they changed after Sept 11 th?"

Mr. Ahmed, Radical Islamic terror and the evil intentions of the Islamic Jihadists are not overblown as you state. It has nothing to do with Israel or the Jewish organizations. America and the world (other than some Islamic countries), will help Israel survive, come what may. The world is not going to stand aside and wait for Israel to be annihilated, you better believe it. Muslims did try 3 times and each time they were humiliatingly defeated by the small Jewish army. There are no Jewish organizations enamoured with the idea of destroying any Muslim State.

The Jewish people have lived for years in western countries without commiting any acts of terror. One cannot say the same of the Muslims who have crept into Christian countries in the past 25 years..

The risk from Islam is not minimal, far from it. With WMD's in the hands of Muslims, who knows when and where they will attack in the future. They form an unwanted 5th column in all western courtries. Islamic terror did not start on Septemmber 11th. 2001. It started way back about 25 years ago with the first of the terror attacks, unfortunately the Western liberal media and the liberal organizations in western countries have been lulled into a hypnotic trance by the devious and false term "Islam = Peace". America and the western countries need to wake up fast and look at the enemy within.. .
Check the undermentioned acts of terror by Muslims against America which prove you are wrong. Terrorism by Muslims against the US:

It all began in 1979, A group of Muslim Iranian students attacked and seized the American Embassy in Tehran. This seizure was an outright attack on American soil. The attack on this sovereign U. S. embassy set the stage for events to follow for the next 25 years.

Shortly after the Tehran experience, Americans began to be kidnapped and killed throughout the Middle East by Muslims NOT by Jews

In April of 1983 a large vehicle packed with high explosives was driven into the US Embassy compound in Beirut , it killed 63 people.

Then in 1983 a large truck laden with over 2500 pounds of TNT smashed through the main gate of the US Marine Corps headquarters in Beirut killing 241 US servicemen who were there to keep the peace, they were not their as occupiers.

Two months later in December 1983, another truck loaded with explosives is driven into the US Embassy in Kuwait.

The following year, in September 1984, another van was driven into the gate of the US Embassy in Beirut.

Soon the terrorism spreads to Europe. In April 1985 a bomb explodes in a restaurant frequented by US soldiers in Madrid.

Then in August 1985 a Volkswagen loaded with explosives is driven into the main gate of the US Air Force Base at Rhein-Main, 22 people are killed.

Fifty-nine days later in 1985 a cruise ship, the Achille Lauro is hijacked and we watched as an American in a wheelchair is singled out of the passenger list and executed.

The terrorists then shift their tactics to bombing civilian airliners when they bomb TWA Flight 840 in April of 1986, killing 4, and the most tragic bombing, Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland in 1988, killing 259.

In January 1993, two CIA agents are shot and killed by a Pakistani Jihadist,as they enter CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia.

The following month, February 1993, a group of terrorists are arrested after a rented van packed with explosives is driven into the underground parking garage of the World Trade Center in New York City. Six people are killed and over 1000 are injured.

Then in November 1995 a car bomb explodes at a US military complex in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia killing seven service men and women.

A few months later in June of 1996, another truck bomb explodes only 35 yards from the US military compound in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. It destroys the Khobar Towers, a US Air Force barracks, killing 19 and injuring over 500.

TheMuslim terrorist then move to coordinate their attacks in a simultaneous attack on two US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. These attacks were planned with precision. They kill 224.

The USS Cole was docked in the port of Aden, Yemen for refueling on 12 October 2000, when a small craft pulled along side the ship and exploded killing 17 US Navy Sailors.
Attacking a US War Ship is an act of war. America should have declared war on Muslims at that time, but it was investigated as a crime by the FBI.

Of course everyone knows the events of 11 September 2001 which killed nearly 3000 innocent every day Americans. The Muslims tried to blame this on Israel, but all the murderers came from Saudi Arabia and other Muslim nations.

America has been under a constant attack since 1979.

The President of the US and Prime minster of UK are right on when they say we are engaged in a war against an Evil Ideology -... I think we have been in a war for the past 25 years and it will continue until we as a people decide enough is enough. America needs to get up from its slumber and act decisively now. America has been changed forever. We have to be ready to pay the price and make the sacrifice to ensure our way of life continues.
You are yet another apologist on behalf of Islam.
