Terror Suspects Connection: Shariah

Islam, Sharia and Jihad are the core elements driving Muslims to attack the West and America in particular. The Jihadi are among us and can crop up anywhere, anytime to strike a blow for Allah. Some are homegrown, some are immigrants, but all are driven by a desire to further the global Jihad and willing to die for it.


Terror Suspects Connection: Shariah
By Frank Gaffney

A Denver airport shuttle driver from Afghanistan who plotted to blow up subway trains in New York City. A Jordanian who tried to destroy one of Dallas' tallest skyscrapers. An American who thought he was detonating a truck bomb aimed at a federal courthouse in Springfield, Ill.
Law enforcement authorities who successfully stymied these alleged attacks have been at pains to emphasize that there are no connections between the three.
Of course there are.

Maybe it will prove to be the case that the three men at the heart of these interrupted plots — Najibullah Zazi, Hosam Maher Husein Smadi, and Michael Finton (also known as Talib Islam) — had no connection in a tactical or operational sense.

Still, it is absurd, and extremely dangerous, to insist that they are not connected in at least one way: What apparently animated all three of these suspects (and perhaps a number of others believed to have been involved in the New York plot who are still at large) is the seditious, supremacist theo-political-legal program authoritative Islam calls "Shariah."

Shariah requires its adherents to engage in jihad — the struggle to bring about the triumph of Islam worldwide through whatever means are available. Shariah explicitly calls for the use of violent techniques designed to instill terror in those who stand in the way of a global Muslim theocracy.
