Recent arrests of Muslims, illegal, legal and American convert, show the danger to the U.S. by radical Islam. http://www.boston.com/bostonglobe/editorial_opinion/oped/articles/2009/10/05/keeping_a_lid_on_homegrown_terror/ (h/t Counterterrorism Blog http://counterterrorismblog.org/)
While the article starts out very dissapointingly, claiming without any evidence that there is no domestic radicalization going on, it does finaly acknowledge that radicalization is occuring in the U.S.
Money quote: "While all these characteristics still hold true, they no longer represent a guarantee. A 2007 report by the New York Police Department stated that 'despite the economic opportunities in the United States, the powerful gravitational pull of individuals’ religious roots and identity sometimes supersede the assimilating nature of American society.'’’
The conclusion is correct, radicalization is going on, but it is not the internet, it is domestic mosques, whether it is a most in Minneapolis where Somali immigrants are radicalized, in Dallas where illegal aliens are radicalized, or in Illinois where converts are radicalized, Islam is the enemy and it is here, growing, and radical. http://hotair.com/archives/2009/03/05/video-terrorist-mosque-in-minneapolis/ http://www.militantislammonitor.org/article/id/3382 http://islamizationwatch.blogspot.com/2009/09/suspect-in-illinois-bomb-plot-michael.html Two of the 9/11 hijackers were very comfortable at a mosque in San Diego and another terrorist supporter, Sami Al-Arian was made at the mosques near the University of South Florida where El-Arian helped Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.
The only way to reduce this threat is to eliminate Muslim immigration.
