Immigrants and Converts responsible for Muslim Terror Violence in the West
By: Robert Maegh
When we think of terrorist assaults, we visualize hate spitting imams or a serene Osama Bin Laden in front of us; we think of Palestine, Syria, Iran, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. However, as you will see below, this is a very wrong representation of the facts. Although the people and countries that are mentioned are pulling the strings, the real danger is coming from another side.
According to Robert S. Leiken’s “Bearers of Global Jihad? Immigration and National Security after 9/11″, Muslim immigrants have carried out 86% of all major terrorist attacks; converts to Islam executed the remaining acts of violence. The Oklahoma City bombing of 1995 is the only exception.
We can conclude that in our Western countries, jihad has grown mainly by way of Muslim immigration. Two methods have been employed for the execution of violent acts against the West: “the sleeper cell” and the “hit squad”. Hit squads: these are foreign nationals who enter the country with a specific assignment, such as the 9/11 hijackers. Sleeper cells: consist of unsuspicious people quietly living in immigrant communities. They work, they have kids, they have studied, are polite, they have fixed addresses, they pay the rent; in other words, they act as exemplary citizens.
The lifestyle of Muslim immigrants in Western Europe and the United States is significantly different. In Europe, the Muslim second generation is culturally alienated, socially marginalized, and economically unemployed, with raging fundamental ideologies and terrorism (gang rapes, anti-Semitic attacks and anti-American violence). In the United States, immigrated Muslims are not as alienated as the European Muslim immigrants are. Consequently, jihadist violence is here carried out by hit squads from abroad.
Opposite to expectation, terrorists do not come from countries like Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia or Egypt, for the simple reason that the leaders of the terrorist organizations are not brainless and try to stay away from special attention and extra scrutiny. Recruiting predominantly happens in Europe and countries under the Visa Waiver Program.
In Israel, the situation is as follows: according the Israeli Intelligence (Mossad), Hezbollah has seldom attempted to gain access to Israel, restricting its operations to the Israeli-occupied security zone in south Lebanon. Mossad has however, indications that Hezbollah’s military wing has started recruiting European converts to Islam to carry out terrorist attacks against targets in Israel. Terrorists have found out that Europeans can move around in Israel more easily than Arabs can. Mossad also expects that Hezbollah may be moving its base of operations to Europe in the event it is forced to disarm in accord with Syrian-Israeli peace talks.
An example is Steven Smyrek, a British-educated German, converted to Islam and recruited by Hezbollah for a potential reconnaissance expedition with the aim of bombing targets in Israel followed by a suicide mission (he was caught before he could strap on a bomb). From what is mentioned above, the West must draw the necessary conclusions:
- Assimilating indigenous Muslim populations is critical to the West’s long-term security.
- Islamist threat in the West originates above all from Europe.
- European and United States security services should recognize they face different problems: one primarily internal, the other mainly external.
- The West should concentrate on immigration systems that keep out sleepers and hit squads.
- For Americans, the Visa Waiver Program must be adjusted or abolished.
- Controlling land borders is a much higher priority than worrying about Iranians and Syrians.
- Europe must urgently stop today’s easy reliance on euphemisms concerning Muslim violence.
Political correctness must be put aside and the State’s security must have priority above increase in votes. It just happened in the Netherlands where thanks to excessive concessions to the Muslim Immigrants, the Socialist Party obtained after the municipal elections, 80% of the immigrant votes and came into power. Thanks to preferential votes, more than eighty Muslims are invested with a seat in the councils. Observing the Dutch result, the Belgian Socialists propose to teach Arabic in the schools and consider to make Arabic the second language (Belgium has already 3 languages, Flemish, French and German). Meanwhile terrorist Erdal escaped under the nose of 32 national security guards.
