The media's jihad
Last Friday, yet another devout Muslim, Amine El Khalifi, was arrested wearing a vest full of explosives before he could blow up the U.S. Capitol building. The thwarted homicide bombing marked at least the 45th publicly known attempted Islamic terrorist attack against the United States since 9/11, and it is the sixth such attack targeting Washington, D.C.
That is news. But was that the focus of news coverage in the following days? No, it was barely even mentioned by an enemedia that increasingly shows itself to be aligned with the jihad force. Instead of stories about this attempted jihad terror attack, the mainstream media were full of reports about how the New York Police Department had been monitoring members of the Muslim Students Association, a Muslim Brotherhood group.
The vicious media swarm about the monitoring of the MSA was another attack upon the very counterterrorism tools that are keeping us safe.
