The latest terrorist act in Florida could be perceived as a “hate crime,” but it’s terrorism nonetheless. He worked as a security officer at G4S Secure Solutions, a private security company.
It’s senseless terrorism against innocent U.S. citizens who happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.
In most cases, terrorists are tied to a particular set of religious beliefs that are twisted to encourage the murder of innocent citizens.
Sure, terrorists can arrive from any country, but it’s simple to connect the dots and realize that most of these terrorists rely on a particular “religious belief,” that has nothing to do with religion.
In “See Something, Say Nothing,” Philip Haney, a Department of Homeland Security whistle blower, details how references to Islam are being wiped from the investigative records.
Virtually all of the terrorists have traveled to a Middle Eastern country that supports terrorism.
Some of these countries provide no freedom or equal rights for women or same-sex couples.
Our citizens should demand that scrutiny continues for anyone from certain parts of the world suspected of conduct that would merit them being featured on a terrorist watch list.
Apparently, the FBI terrorist watch list is not like the sexual predator label that you earn for a lifetime.
Here’s some of the conduct that got the latest terrorist safely removed from the FBI terrorist watch list:
• Affiliation with a religion documented for its ties to violence and terrorism.
• Recent purchase of an assault rifle and handguns.
• Acquaintance of a documented suicide bomber.
• Inflammatory comments alleging terrorist ties.
• Several trips to Syria for “religious purposes.”
• Visible dislike and borderline hatred of same-sex couples while frequently visiting a nightspot that caters to same-sex couples.
• Support of the 911 attacks on New York, which earned a high school suspension.
• Domestic violence.
