There's been such a dizzying bunch of recent nabbings of would-be terrorists recently that I just let the Drudge Report take care of it all.
But this one caught my eye.
And this guy has been visiting Canada on numerous occassions for some reason. It's suspected he was trying to build a terror cell up here.
"The evidence suggests a chilling, disturbing sequence of events showing the defendant was intent on making a bomb and being in New York on 9/11, for purposes of perhaps using such items," Neff said.
Zazi's indictment stipulates that he was trained to make explosives in Pakistan by members of al Qaeda. It also says he purchased a large amount of hydrogen peroxide and nail-polish remover at beauty-supply stores to make bombs.
Prosecutors have alleged that the bombs were to be detonated on New York City commuter trains on the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks. They have also said that they found handwritten bomb-making instructions on Zazi's computer.
The 24-year-old allegedly left Denver for New York City by car on Sept. 8. That prompted a wave of searches in both cities by federal investigators, who had been watching him for some time. He was eventually arrested on Sept. 19.
Well, at least we know that counterterror authorities are watching these folks. But other policies of both the Obama and Bush administrations haven't exactly been helpful in nipping the root of the problem, which is why we can expect the problem to continue to grow and grow until it becomes too massive for the authorities to prevent all attacks.
We were lucky again. We caught 'em again.
But we won't always.
So we must deal with the root of the problem. And we know what that is. Supremacist Islam.
We need to think about Supremacist Islam as we think about Nazism. Supremacist Islam is, after all, as murderously hateful and intolerant as is Nazism, so it has lost its right to claim to be a legitimate religion. And once this has happened, they cannot invoke any "rights" protections.
After all, any ideology, even a "religion", that is founded upon supremacism, intolerance, hatred and murder cannot be tolerated.
Calling an evil, murderous ideology a "religion" doesn't change anything, and doesn't lend any "rights" to the practitioners thereof.
After all, would even the hardest of the hard left argue that since Osama bin Laden is the leader of a "fundamentalist religious sect", we must be "tolerant" of what he says and does? Well, maybe some such leftists would be so deranged as to say yes, as they'd also praise the likes of Castro, Guevara, Stalin, even Hitler.
I'd leave Muslims alone as long as they're "peaceful" and bother no one, and don't try to Islamize the world.
But those who have harmful intentions... must be treated like Nazis, like white supremacists, etc, and anyone who disagrees is simply wrong.
And incitement to commit grievous harm to others is not to be tolerated, even if such incitement takes place in "houses of worship", for once such buildings have been corrupted by evil, they cease to be "houses of worship" and are nothing more than criminal bunkers in need of being shut down for inciting violence and murder.
After all, "religion" is NOT a defence for incitement to, nor commission of, violence/murder.
