Syria to Phoenix to Garland: ISIS Is Officially Here

Officers in Garland, Texas survey the carnage.

Last January, when my wife and I attended the “Stand for the Prophet” protest, the thought never occurred to me that a few months later two individuals, also with terrorist ties, would lie dead on the street outside the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas.

But, last evening, at around 7:00 p.m., two men who apparently took exception to the event taking place inside the center, decided to pull another Charlie Hebdo act, by showing up with assault rifles and opening up fire on pretty much anything that moved.  One security officer was wounded, but not fatally.

Thankfully, their assaults ended about as quickly as they began when Garland police shot them dead in the street, where they laid for hours, as law enforcement officials tried to make sense of it all.

As of this morning, only one of the perpetrators has been positively identified: Elton Simpson.  His accomplice, who was a roommate of his in Phoenix, has not been identified, much less has anyone connected them to Islam, other than the notorious group ISIS.

Of course, terrorist groups like CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) have tried to distance themselves from all the commotion, even though we know of their approval, simply because of their dislike of Pam Gellar, who with her organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiate, sponsored the event.

Regardless, though, of all the denials to come, and the feigned efforts to find the “cause” of why all of this happened, those with any amount of common sense know why, especially when ISIS has made it perfectly clear of their intentions, and groups like CAIR speak with a forked-tongue.

“May Allah accept us as mujahideen [those engaged in jihad],” was a Twitter text reportedly sent out by the gunmen, just before they opened up fire.

At approximately the same time, another Twitter account (“Shariah is Light”) reportedly described what was about to take place in Garland.

That was followed by another tweet from another account, “AbuHussainAlBritani,” which read, ““The knives have been sharpened, soon we will come to your streets with death and slaughter!…Allahu Akbar!!!!! 2 of our brothers just opened fire at the … art exhibition in texas!  Kill Those That Insult The Prophet…They Thought They Was Safe In Texas From The Soldiers of The Islamic State.”

Gee.  It sure sounds like a bunch of angry Christians, Hindus, or Sikhs, riled up about something, doesn’t it?

Actually, it sounds like an orchestrated effort by the followers of Muhammad, which a group like CAIR would wholeheartedly endorse, if it was not so busy successfully duping those in the secular media, educational institutions, and legal/political figureheads into believing otherwise.

Whatever the case, if it is not clear that ISIS is here, all the way from Syria to Phoenix to Garland, then it might be supposed that it never will be clear.

Those with their heads in the sand, or other dark recesses of their lower bodies, will continue looking the other way or calling a duck by any other name other than a duck, and before long amendments will have to be made, just to keep the “religion of peace” advocates from going totally berserk here like they regularly do elsewhere.

Oh, the fun is just beginning.  As I’ve noted before, the Muslims have an agenda, they are systematically carrying  it out, and given the current climate of ignorance from the American public they are banking on, it is just a matter of time before they succeed.
