Driven to Jihad by America...........really?

MSNBC's news reader Contessa Brewer is dismayed that the man picked up for the attempted car bombing in New York's Time Square is a Muslim...she "hoped" that the man wouldn't be an islamist because, according to her, this kind of thing makes Americans exercise unfair bigotry.

Another news reader, I didn't catch what station when I heard it on my car radio, opined that he was sure this was a Muslim suffering from our economy's problems because his house was in foreclosure. HERE is a story from AP which starts with these paragraphs:

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – Not long ago, Faisal Shahzad had a pretty enviable life: He became an American citizen after emigrating from Pakistan, where he came from a wealthy family. He earned an MBA. He had a well-educated wife and two kids and owned a house in a middle-class Connecticut suburb.

In the past couple of years, though, his life seemed to unravel: He left a job at a global marketing firm he'd held for three years, lost his home to foreclosure and moved into an apartment in an impoverished neighborhood in Bridgeport. And last weekend, authorities say, he drove an SUV loaded with explosives into Times Square intent on blowing it up. ..the article goes on to say this:

Shahzad's behavior sometimes seemed odd to his neighbors, and he surprised a real estate broker he hardly knew with his outspokenness about President George W. Bush and the Iraq war...."He mentioned that he didn't like Bush policies in Iraq," said Igor Djuric, who represented Shahzad in 2004 when he was buying a home.

So, it looks like losing his house and the Iraq war turned this innocent, sweet (more from the article: "He was personable, a nice guy, but unremarkable,") into a cold blooded killer intent on causing death to so many innocent people in Times Square?.........the inference being, it seems, that if our economy wasn't so bad and we hadn't fought in Iraq, maybe this poor man would have been left alone to continue his quest for the American dream, huh?

The left just seems so SAD that this wasn't just another "Angry White Guy", huh? Can America survive this type of thinking...this type of naivite, this amazing desire to put them before us? I don't know.
By the way, do you ever get the feeling muslim jihadists are watching our news and tripping over themselves in laughter? I do, every single time I see us make such a big huge thing over one car...imagine what they're thinking when they consider blowing up 100 cars in 100 crowded places in America?.......I try not to. And, of course, I know this is mean to ALL muslims (as if American good muslims aren't fearful of that as well?...sort of like how all the Mexicans I know who are legally here are more FOR the AZ new laws than I am), but I, for one, am not as disappointed as Contessa is that he is a muslim, nor am I quite as empathetic as AP's writers who seem to blame us for causing this fellow to want us all dead, because we need to stay on the alert for the real threat, like this would-be killer, not the angry white guy who'd be the first one fighting jihadists in any meaningful way...

I was fascinate by New York City's legendary mindless twit, Mayor Bloomberg' s initial response, "If I had to guess 25 cents, this would be exactly that. Homegrown, or maybe a mentally deranged person, or somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something. It could be anything,” he said."

Whatever happened to placing blame on the perpetrater regardless of his circumstances?

This man if he had been successful, would have murdered people! Who cares what his circumstances were?

He's a follower of a religion which calls for Jihad, which means kill the enemy, which in this case is, Americans. He is the enemy. We are at war with the Jihadists. It's not complicated.

I don't think these commentators are naive, I think they suffer from some kind of neurosis, maybe psychosis. Whatever it is, theirs is not a normal response to someone who want's us dead!

They're worried about bigotry by the innocent against those who would destroy us? Are they kidding?

It seems to be a given that, when one engages in moral equivalence, no matter how dire the threat or circumstances, he ends up bending over backwards and taking up the side of their enemy. This is suicidal madness, and it's not a normal survival reaction.

My only regret regarding Faisal Shazan is that he didn't blow himself up while he was making the damn bomb!

DIDADIN!

I've said exactly that since 9/12/01, and NOTHING will ever make me change my attitude.

Do I care that this may be unfair to some people?

Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.

I care about the security and integrity of OUR country much more than I do about libidiot ideas of "fairness."

The US Constitution is not a suicide pact.

The door must be CLOSED to Muslims. No exceptions. And when a so-called "American Citizen," who in spirit is no such thing, commits TREASON he should be summarily DEPORTED to an Islamic hellhole or swiftly EXECUTED.

Those who wish to remain free may give no quarter to the enemies of freedom. PERIOD!

Oh … where to begin? Well, let’s start with an MBA who wasn’t smart enough to explode gasoline with fireworks. One supposes that this MBA (which tells us quite a bit about how pathetic our universities have become) might have lost his job because he is an idiot; it had nothing to do with the economy. But even this is an important side note: even ethnic minorities are subject to losing their jobs for incompetence —occasionally. Now as to the well-educated wife, one wonders if she tried to save him or, as the victim of brutal spousal abuse, she simply let him “go his way.” I’m betting on the latter only because I hang on to the hope there is justice in the world —somewhere.

I’m not even sure how relevant Bush’s war on terror is to this heart-wrenching story of Faisal Shahzad. I’m quite certain there were a number of people inside the United States who might have disagreed with Mr. Bush.

Interesting perhaps, but not relevant to the fact that this crap for brains attempted to kill American children while they were exiting a stage play based on a Disney movie. I’m glad he didn’t succeed in this dastardly act —but if he had, we can only wonder how Contessa might have reported the story. Children supporting Bush die in Times Square; they had it coming.

The guy's name when properly translated is

FATAL SHITHEAD.

Sometimes that last name is spelled SHEETHEAD, but the former is more to the point.

Sorry. Just couldn't resist.

Here's a good idea:

Send all the Muslims to the Middle East -- SWIMMING with a LIBERAL under each arm.

Good grief! People need to wake up and smell the deception! Seriously.

Many people have lost their jobs and homes, and we don't hear about them gathering up all this artillary to blow up a place and kill innocent people.

It was all premeditated. He is a coward.

Which translated means: "drats! It wasn't a Christian right winger!"

I saw that. Those people are SO screwed up in their head. They would have found no excuse if a tea partner would have bombed NY.

The left has a mental disorder. It includes:
- victimhood
- state of constant denial about life
- self loathing
- lack of moral compass

Needless to say, that's a lot.

My favorite part was this person being originally reported as "a forty-year-old white male." Give me a break.
He should be prosicuted to the fullest extent of the law.
I love the comments on this blog. It's time to call a spade a spade.
Is it Novemeber yet? I can't wait until these libriots get grounded. They have been so very very naughty.

Well, I suppose we can take comfort in the fact that unqualified mealymouthed buffoons aren't currently in charge of counter-terrorism policy.

Yeah, I was pretty ticked when the newspersons kept saying it was a white man. I didn’t believe it. And sho’nuff, L & B (that’s ministerial talk for “Lo and Behold,”) we have - gasp - a Pakistani “naturalized” citizen. As soon as I heard that, I “made a joyful noise unto the Lord” and to whomever else was within earshot. OF COURSE it was a Muslim!!!
When are the people of this nation going to realize that Islam is by far the very greatest threat to our country and to the entire world???

How many more of our citizens have to die before we “get it” and start deporting Muslims en masse? None of them can be trusted. And the more we try to “PC” it, the more deaths we’ll have.

REMEMBER...this piece of sheit...raised his hand...swore an oath as a citizen of the US. Why should we trust any muslim, now? We know they lie for islam...we know they can't be trusted. yet...we let them slide. Between muslims and illegals....I'll take the illegals over a muslim.

I've seen these lying, disengenous traitorous scumbags first hand. They're useless, lying scum.

And already..TOO many Americans have died believing them and their worthless 7th century ideology.

Shahzad is now the foreclosure terrorist. So I guess a young MUSLIM male who returns home to Pakistan, a known hotbed of terrorist activity, doesn’t even rate being put on a “watch list” in this country. I guess a MUSLIM male who returns to Pakistan, brings his family back home even though he’s now an American citizen, and then leaves them there is not worth being placed on a watch list. I guess a MUSLIM male who goes back to Pakistan broke but then comes back to America full of cash to buy items for a terrorist attack no longer raises any eyebrows (By the way, how did he bring this cash back into the country? Did he carry it on him or did someone send it to him or give it to him personally here in the United States?). I guess a MUSLIM male who goes to an American airport and buys a one-way ticket to Dubai and pays for it in cash does not deserve to be held, searched more thoroughly, and at least asked a few questions about where he is going and why?

And is anybody in the mainstream media asking where this guy’s mosque was here in the United States and who attended that mosque? Don’t think some of these mosques are a hotbed of radical ISLAMIC jihadism? Well, just ask that blind imam from Jersey City who was convicted for conspiring against the United States in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing whether or not American mosques are useful recruiting tools for the jihadists.

But no, I guess none of these questions are important regarding young MUSLIM males who travel BACK to the Middle East but live here in the United States. But, hey, at least he was on a bank forclosure list. I guess that’s something!

Shazzam!!!! The MSM says...he's no longer a muslim..but a disgruntled..."white guy".

Major, I disagree -- a bit. Islam is not the greatest danger to our nation --our TOLERANCE of it is.

They're steeped in a Marxist view - all behavior driven by economics. So that MUST be the explanation. Or at least the straw man they erect to keep from having to admit that white Christians are not the whole and sole evil on the planet.

"My only regret regarding Faisal Shazan"



My only regret is that nobody in law enforcement has the balls to put a 45 in the back of his traitorous head. "Citizen" my ass.

Free Thinker... THAT sounds like a plan to me! Think we can send Fartessa with the first wave?????

Z said...

Major, you make such an important pot.
The leftist media's stuffing us with that "AMERICAN CITIZEN" crap...as IF.

But, of course, TECHNICALLY, he IS an American citizen so we must keep our mouths shut..It's sort of like those islamist monsters out of Britain who were allowed to become British citizens...you hear "the Four, all British citizens..killed.."

Ya, they're as British as our bomber is really AMERICAN.
And, yes, the left will then ask me how I dare decide who's really American.

Well..bite me. You can use, technically, AMERICAN CITIZEN, but add "from pakistan" or "From Iran".....their implications are obvious and SILLY and dishonest.
