Jihad in Jersey

"If this is true, the killings in New Jersey are the American equivalent of the Theo Van Gogh murder in the Netherlands, a political killing motivated solely by the need to silence effective critics of radical Islam." (LGF, links mine). The Van Gogh murder is iconic (as in important and hopefully eduring). It was impossible to ignore, or blame away on your culture or country's defects. The horrific, blatant crime suddenly crystallized an enemy, put a chill down your spine and shamed you for not taking the threat more seriously. When the next Van Gogh moment comes to America, we will remember the NJ killings: How they did not get the steady front-page coverage they deserved. How we were in denial. How we fed the crocodile.

After a thirty second mention of the murders (Fox news) I checked several trusted websites for details. I thought immediately that it was jihad. Frankly, the government and the mainstream media are continuing to betray Americans. Just as we should have been regularly exposed to the true nature of worldwide militant Islam prior to 9/11, the same should have begun in earnest 9/12. Of all of my friends and aquaintenances, I'm the sole "student" of this threat. Militant Islamists know what they want (restoration of the caliphate), mean what they say, and...they're here.

Well said. I feel very similar. There is no other issue than the war/jihad and yet 90% of the people I work or mingle with don't see it.
