Yet another inconvenient development for the “Islamophobia” industry, which claims that concern about the jihad in the U.S. is unfounded or based on “hate.”
“Exclusive: Feds arrest man allegedly heading to U.S. Capitol for suicide mission after sting investigation,”Â by Mike Levine forÂ FoxNews.com, February 17
The man, in his 30s and of Moroccan descent, was nabbed following a lengthy investigation by theÂ FBI, initiated after he expressed interest in conducting an attack. It’s unclear how the FBI learned of his aspirations.
The man thought undercover FBI agents assisting him in his plot were associates ofÂ Al Qaeda.
Amine El Khalifi of Alexandria, Va., was taken into custody with an inoperable gun and inert explosives given to him by undercover FBI agents as part of a long-running sting operation, the Associated PressÂ reported:
“Suicide mission?” Â Totally un-Islamic. No real Muslim would ever do a thing like that.
Prepare yourself for a litany of of accusations about ‘entrapment’, ‘witch-hunt’ against Muslims, harassment and Islamophobia. America’s fearful Muslims will be whining about ‘backlash’ as usual …. and in his mosque no one will remember him.
“. . .he had been praying at a mosque in the Washington area”
Pray tell . ..which bastion of Islamic peace would this mosque be?
Dar al-Hijrah in Falls Church VA , you know,Â dearly departed al-Awlaki’sÂ haunt? . . .or perhaps the nearbyÂ Islamic Saudi Academy, from which valedictiorianAhmed Abu Ali, serving a life sentence for conspiring with Al Qaeda to assassinate President Bush, the same institution whoseÂ director suppressed report of sexual abuse of a five-year-old child?
As we saw in Mumbai, jihadists like to target Jews above all, as they are, according to the Qur’an, the worst enemies of the Muslims (5:82).
