Lebanese born Brigitte Gabriel in her new book “Because They Hate – A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America” describes perfectly how Islamic radicals take over a tolerant populace. Osama Bin Laden, Mugtada al-Sadr, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and many others profess death to America, death to the Zionist. We are at war with radical Islam.
One need only recall the eagerness of Muslim Jihadists to join Adolf Hitler’s army in WWII to recognize their historical hate of the Jews and the west. After a rather quiet period in the 50’s and 60’s, the radical terrorists are now fully engaged and at war with us and the Jews. Their skillful resolve to infiltrate tolerant western countries and governments is staggering. Unconfirmed statements by terrorist experts note that there are 200 cities in France where the police will not enter because they know they will be killed by the Muslim extremists. Recently Russian leaders expressed concern about the growing Muslim presence in their country (Russian women on average give birth to 1.3 children, Russian Muslim women give birth to 6-10 children) and have enacted measures to control Muslims
Moderate Muslims are largely silent when addressing the egregiously horrific activities of their radial brethren. It begs the question, are they in fear of retaliation, are they as perplexed as many of us are or are they simply not as moderate as we have been led to believe? And it brings the fear that perhaps they are speaking up but being silenced by the media, which tends to be sympathetic to Radical Islam.
I recently attended a 3-day conference on a multitude of national issues in Palm Beach Florida. There were national leaders, terrorism experts, legislators, media, political pundits, military personnel and many of us who are simply eager to learn more about the growing threat. During the panel discussion “The Homeland Imperiled” one of the audience members suggested there were 10 suitcase nuclear weapons that have been smuggled into this country for use in Osama Bin Laden’s “American Hiroshima”. He asked the panel for verification of this. Ret. General Paul Vallely, the moderator nodded with ascension that it was true. General Vallely in addition to his distinguished military career has served on US security assistance missions on civilian-military relations to Europe, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Indonesia, and Central America.
At lunch, I sat with Ret. General Bob Patterson. I asked the General whether he believed there were suitcase nukes in the country intended to harm us. He said it was highly likely and went on to describe what he did in active duty. He was charged with a program called “Special Services” which was a military group dedicated to look for nuclear weapons coming into this country. He admitted they intercepted a couple coming in through Louisiana. He shuttered to think of those they missed.
Paul Williams a terrorism expert and consultant to the FBI in a recent discussion described how al Qaeda obtained the nuclear weapons. They were sold to them by the Chechen Mafia, Russian Mafia and other black market dealers. He added that these sales had been verified by numerous weapons inspectors including Hans Blix.
According to Williams, in 1995 Dzokhar Dudayev, the leader of the Chechen Mafia offered to sell his collection of nuclear weapons to the United States in exchange for US recognition of Chechnya’s independence. The Clinton administration declined to purchase them; so they were sold to al Qaeda.
Although Osama bin Laden is incredibly patient and will not allow an attack to occur unless success is guaranteed, many experts believe he cannot keep these weapons forever. They require significant maintenance to ensure their potency. Mr. Williams suggests he had worked regularly with 20 nuclear scientists from the lab of Dr. A. Q. Kahn of Pakistan to maintain and modify the weapons. Dr. Kahn was hired by Pakistan to develop their nuclear weapon program.
Non-Muslims have cause to fear the carnage from a suitcase nuclear weapon. The ones we know about can yield about half the amount of power of the bombs we dropped on Japan. One or two detonated in any American city would be devastating; ten would be horrific.
The “moderate” Muslim community not only has to fear this carnage, but the wrath and ire of the non-Muslim Americans. When contemplating the response to the moderate and peaceful Muslim communities after 911, I quote Ret. General Thomas G. McInerney “if the American Hiroshima occurs, to be sure we will respond and there will not be a Mosque standing anywhere in the US and there will be no Muslim, radical or not who will not be in fear for their life from the peaceful and usually tolerant citizens in the United States”.
It is not if there is a planned “American Hiroshima”, but when. Why is this so under reported in America?
We Americans have must learn more about this growing threat and the press has a duty to inform us, not leak our secrets in this war.
