The number of ISIS related arrests in the Northern Virginia area around Washington, D.C. is a very unsettling trend. It points to a level of activity that is a real and present danger for the United States and our seat of government. After a few remarks addressed at North Korea, LTC Allen West speaks to the issue and the concerns we should have.
DISTURBING: 5 ISIS-related arrests in DC area…
You know, there are times when you just have to ask, Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot? When I hear the liberal progressive left go apoplectic over Senator Ted Cruz and his use of the phraseology “carpet bomb” regarding ISIS, I just shake my head. I think any good military adviser to the young Senator would refine his language to articulate the position of air supremacy in order to deny ISIS freedom of maneuver and attack their centers of gravity, such as command and control along with strategic resourcing capability. But it is hardly worth all the gyrations and faux consternation espoused from the leftists and their media accomplices.
There’s certainly a part of me that wants to see this despotic sociopathic dictator shut down — needless to say, that’s not happening in the final months of Obama. And without a doubt, the lack of any economic pressure on China doesn’t bode well for us to reign in the little madman. Maybe lil’ Kim is upset because his NCAA basketball bracket got busted very early – after all, we know he’s a big basketball fan.
However, there’s a clear and present danger on the ground right now in the vicinity of Washington D.C. and you have to wonder if we’re not brewing our own little Brussels.
Also reported by Fox5DC, “Five ISIS related arrests with ties to the Northern Virginia area have been made within months of each other. Tuesdays Brussels attacks that killed at least 31 people have raised questions in the area, especially in light of these recent arrests.
Seventeen-year-old Ali Shukri Amin of Manassas was sentenced to 11 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to conspiring to provide material support to terrorists in U.S. District Court in Alexandria. In addition to helping 18-year-old Reza Niknejad of Prince William County travel to Syria, Amin also admitted using Twitter and other social media to solicit donations and support for the Islamic State.
In January, Joseph Hassan Farrokh, 28, and Mahmoud Amin Mohamed Elhassan, 25, both of Woodbridge were charged with terrorism offenses related to trying to travel to Syria to join ISIL. And Mohamad Jamal Khweis, 26, from Alexandria, was an American Islamic State group fighter who handed himself over to Kurdish forces in northern Iraq just this month.
The unknown is also terrifying. Reza Niknejad of Prince William County was dropped off at Dulles International Airport last year to join ISIS and that was the last place anyone saw him. A huge concern is how many other Reza Niknejads are out in Northern Virginia who have goals of fighting for ISIS, either overseas, or in the area.”
Ok, I can hear it already, the shouts of Islamophobia by the Islamapologists and the cultural stealth jihad enablers. But let me share some concerns about Northern Virginia and Islamic jihadism.
