In lower Manhattan on Tuesday afternoon, a Muslim named Sayfullo Saipov, screaming “Allah akbar,” drove a rented truck along a bicycle path, killing at least eight people and injuring numerous others. According to Al Arabiya, “New York state governor Andrew Cuomo told media that there is no evidence to suggest wider plot or wider scheme.” And Time.com reported that Cuomo said that there was no “evidence of an ongoing threat or any additional threat.”
No evidence to suggest a wider plot or an ongoing threat? Really, Governor? Here’s some: last June, the Islamic State published a poster depicting an SUV driving over a heap of skulls and bearing the legend “Run Over Them Without Mercy.”
Also, the Islamic State issued this call in September 2014:
So O muwahhid, do not let this battle pass you by wherever you may be. You must strike the soldiers, patrons, and troops of the tawaghit. Strike their police, security, and intelligence members, as well as their treacherous agents. Destroy their beds. Embitter their lives for them and busy them with themselves. If you can kill a disbelieving American or European — especially the spiteful and filthy French — or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be….If you are not able to find an IED or a bullet, then single out the disbelieving American, Frenchman, or any of their allies. Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him….
Many Muslims in the West have heeded this call. Last August, there was a vehicular jihad attack in Barcelona. The week before that in France, a Muslim named Hamou Bachir hit six French soldiers with his car in Levallois-Perret, where the headquarters of the DGSI (General Directorate for Internal Security), the country’s primary counter-terrorism intelligence agency, are located. In June, a Muslim drove his car into a crowd on the London Bridge and then jumped out and started stabbing people. We have seen several other vehicular jihadis get out of the car after they plowed into pedestrians, and start stabbing people. In June 2015, a Muslim in Austria drove his car into a crowd, killing three, and then got out and stabbed passersby. Then in November 2016, a Muslim student at Ohio State University named Abdul Razak Ali Artan drove his car into a crowd, then got out and stabbed several others.
There have been many others in 2016 and this year: in Nice, in Berlin, in Jerusalem, in Paris, and elsewhere. Yet Andrew Cuomo and others among the political elites resolutely refuse to connect the dots between these jihad attacks, which have an obvious connection with one another in sharing the same motivating ideology and the same goal.
Saipov, meanwhile, has been identified as a native of Uzbekistan. It has not yet been revealed under what circumstances Saipov entered the United States, but however he came here, his actions today indicate the crying need for immigration reform, and the correctness of the underlying principle behind President Trump’s much-maligned travel bans.
No doubt when Saipov came here, he was deemed a “moderate.” The current immigration and refugee apparatuses do not even make any serious attempt to determine whether or not a Muslim entering the United States has jihad sentiments – an enterprise which would be essentially impossible in any case. The unpleasant fact remains that it is impossible to distinguish jihadis from peaceful Muslim refugees. If, however, President Trump tries to use this incident in order to broaden his travel ban, the response will be the familiar cries of “bigotry” and “Islamophobia,” and the Hate-America Left will go into high gear again to stop his action in the courts.
And so it goes in the daily life of the contemporary West: another jihad massacre, and more denial and willful ignorance.
Robert Spencer is the director of Jihad Watch and author of the New York Times bestsellers The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and The Truth About Muhammad. Coming in November is his
America's immigration policy with regard to followers of Muhammad is foolish, naïve, and exceedingly dangerous. This is not multiculturalism, this is insanity. It is cultural suicide, not cultural diversity.
Another Muslim, this time in New York, shouts "Allahu Akbar" and uses a truck to run down as many infidels as possible.
How many more times does this have to happen? How many more times do we have to play "whack-a-mole" with the people who want to kill us, before we wake up and smell the jihad? How long until we expand President Trump's travel ban to every Muslim country in the world?
The latest "Religion of Peace" mass murderer immigrated from Uzbekistan in 2010, which means quite simply that if a ban on Muslim immigration had been in place at the time, eight Americans would be alive today. Instead, each of their bodies is lying on a slab in a morgue.
Even worse, the perp entered on a "Diversity Visa," if you can believe it, which the GAO told us a decade ago was a sieve through which jihadists could easily insert themselves into the U.S.
Our immigration policy with regard to followers of Muhammad is foolish, naïve, and exceedingly dangerous. This is not multiculturalism, this is insanity. It is cultural suicide, not cultural diversity. European countries like Poland and Hungary have smartened up, banned Islamic immigration, and built fences to protect their borders. This is why you never hear about murderous Muslim attacks in those countries. You don't hear about jihadist attacks in the Czech Republic or in Japan, for the same reason: their immigration policies are such that very few Muslims live there.
In the wake of this latest terror slaughter, the president has vowed to step up "extreme vetting" to prevent future attacks. Well, the basic questions we must ask of any would-be immigrants are these: "Are you a follower of Muhammad and do you believe in Sharia law?" If we're not asking the questions and denying entry to anyone who says "Yes," then our vetting isn't nearly as stringent or extreme as it needs to be.
Of course it's true that the majority of Muslims do not intend to blow us up, run us over, or shoot us up. But no one has developed a jihadi Geiger counter to tell us which Muslims we have to worry about and which ones we don't. Until we figure that out, this means we must be careful with them all.
The media and New York officials like Mayor DiBlasio and Governor Cuomo can't get enough of calling this another "lone wolf" attack. But who cares about that? What difference does any of that make to the families of the eight victims? The victims are just as dead, and their families just as bereaved, as if a terrorist cell had done it.
And how can we call him a "lone wolf" if he's connected, even loosely, to ISIS in one way or another? He apparently left a note at the scene pledging his allegiance to ISIS.
Reports are that he was known to U.S. authorities and that the mosque he attended had been under surveillance since 2005. What good is any of that if authorities did nothing to stop him?
But the culprit here is not even ISIS – it is Islam itself. Islam is, as I have said before, the Ebola virus of culture. Just as African countries, at the height of the Ebola outbreak, refused entry to anyone coming from a country where the virus had erupted, so we can and should block entry into America to anyone who is a carrier of this ideological virus.
Some will say this is mean. Well, it most definitely is not mean to Americans who won't have to experience the trauma of pulling the body of a loved one out from under a rental truck. Government's first responsibility is to protect the safety and security of the American people. It's time for government to do its job.
There are no constitutional barriers to a total suspension of Islamic immigration. There is no religious or constitutional right to immigrate to the United States. We have banned communists from immigration since 1952 because they adhere to a "totalitarian ideology." Well, so do Muslims. If our leaders are not talking about a total suspension of Islamic immigration, they're not serious about solving this problem.
I, for one, am sick to death of all the hand-wringing, the "lone wolf" excuse-making, and all the bilge about Islam as a religion of peace. It most decidedly is not, and the sooner we wake up and actually start doing something about it the better.
