Lone wolf terrorism is the biggest trend in Islamic terrorism. Unlike classic Islamic terrorism, it requires no cells stretching across countries the way that 9/11 did. The perpetrators don’t even need to enter the country under false pretenses the way that the World Trade Center bombers did.
Classic counterterrorism is directed at organizations. It’s inadequate for stopping individual Muslim terrorists like Omar Mateen who was able to murder 49 people at a nightclub in Orlando or closely related duos like the Tsarnaev brothers in Boston or the husband and wife team who carried out the San Bernardino terrorist attack which took the lives of 14 people.
Even the standard technique of planting informants into mosques, deeply opposed by the Islamic lobby in the United States, fails when individuals decide to act alone or only trust their wives or brothers to be in on the plot with them. If an individual Islamic terrorist fails to let his plans slip, either online or to an FBI informant, stopping him can be extremely difficult if not entirely impossible without a stroke of luck.
And Islamic terrorists only need to be lucky once. We have to be lucky every time.
Every absurd Islamic terror plot broken up by law enforcement, the type of thing dismissed by the media and ridiculed by commentators, launching rockets at planes, underwear bombs and blowing up trains, contained the seed of a horrific terrorist attack just like Orlando, Boston or Nice.
When you turn on the evening news and see a running death toll, it’s because one of those absurd and ridiculous terror plots actually succeeded. And it’s happening more and more often.
The reason is simple. Unlike classic Islamic terrorism which required organization and infrastructure, the new brand of Islamic terror only needs one thing… Muslims.
Lone wolf terrorism operates entirely off the existing Muslim population in a particular country. The bigger the Muslim population, the bigger the risk. Any Muslim or Muslims who have settled in a particular non-Muslim country can answer the call of Jihad at any given time without warning.
There is no way that the FBI or other law enforcement agencies could begin to monitor even a fraction of the Islamic settler population sympathetic to terror. The FBI alone has almost 1,000 active ISIS cases it was investigating last year in all 50 states. It does not have nearly the resources it needs to handle them.
As the Muslim settler population in the country increases, the number of cases will grow. No matter how much law enforcement expands the scope of its operations, it will not be able to keep up with the high natural birth rates of the Muslim settler population whose terrorists don’t need a fraction of the training or skills that trained law enforcement figures do. The more the Muslim population grows, the more terror attacks like Orlando, Boston and Nice will get past law enforcement.
Any technological or logistical solutions to this crisis on the law enforcement end will only be band aids.
The source of the problem is Islamic immigration. That is the only possible solution. The only way to reduce the growth of the lone wolf Islamic terrorism problem is to reduce or end Muslim migration.
Muslim immigrants are already inherently privileged when it comes to their ability to enter this country ahead of far more peaceful and far more deserving groups. For example, the vast majority of Syrian refugees admitted to this country are the Muslims who perpetrated and are perpetuating their religious war in the region rather than their Christian and Yazidi victims who face slavery and genocide at their hands.
This Islamic immigration privilege must be withdrawn. Muslim immigration must at the very least be scaled back to a level that law enforcement can cope with. At best it must end entirely until the Muslim world manages to stabilize its way of life to the extent that it can peacefully co-exist with non-Muslims.
There will be endless arguments over what percentage of Muslims support terrorism, but our own experience of recent attacks shows that many of them came from attackers who overtly appeared to be “moderate” and “ordinary”. For every Islamist activist dressed in Salafist fashion and tweeting praise of ISIS, there is at least one, if not many more, whom you would pass on the street without a second look.
Before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Tsarnaevs did not seem like Jihadists. They would have been classed with the general category of “moderate” Muslims. And then they struck.
That is how it is.
The internet has decentralized terrorist training camps. Any Muslim can acquire the skills and equipment he needs to kill a few or a dozen or even a hundred if he chooses to follow his religion.
Not every Muslim will shoot up a nightclub or bomb a marathon, but we have no foolproof way of telling them apart. And even many Muslims who would not shoot up an office party in San Bernardino will still sympathize with the perpetrators. And even those Muslims who don’t will often continue supporting the Muslim lobby of organizations like CAIR that stymie law enforcement investigations of Islamic terrorism.
Muslim immigration makes Muslim terrorism worse.
Once we understand this inconvenient truth, then everything else naturally flows from it. The type of terrorism that we are dealing now won’t be beaten by breaking up organizations or droning terrorist leaders in training camps in Yemen or Pakistan. The enemy is right here. He speaks our language. He walks down our streets. He looks at us with hate in his Halal heart and he plots to kill us.
He may pledge allegiance to ISIS or Al Qaeda, but he is part of the larger organization of Islam. It is this organization, more than any of its Jihadist factional subdivisions, that represents the true threat.
Lone wolf terrorism is a viral threat that is spread by Islamic migration. We can only end it by closing the door. As long as the door to the Muslim migrant stays open, we will live under the threat that our neighbor or co-worker will be the one to kill us tomorrow or the day after that.
Thanks, great article, correct strategy. And simple :)ReplyDelete
that we are dealing now won’t be beaten -> that we are dealing with now won’t be beatenReplyDelete
Finally a case for the Obvious!ReplyDelete
Closing the door entirely, either temporarily or permanently, is really the only option, because the risk even of the one percent (of a rapidly multiplying population) committing terrorism is just too high. Only an unflagging optimist would trust that "the Muslim world (will manage) to stabilize its way of life to the extent that it can peacefully co-exist with non-Muslims." The core tenets of Islam disprove the probability that it will ever peacefully coexist with any other people or religion that opposes or exposes the cult of lies at the heart of Islam.ReplyDelete
Daniel, you've said it all, and so well. Not much else I can say about immigration. This is our first priority. There is, however, also the issue of the Muslims already here. They have infiltrated our institutions and mastered the diversity game. They know just how to exploit our sympathy for the underdog.ReplyDelete
If we succeed in stopping Muslim immigration, how do we remain steadfast against these hatefilled traitors in our midst?
Well put Daniel, wish I could write as well as this.ReplyDelete
No Muslims, no problems.ReplyDelete
Not only should the door be closed to Muslims, Islam's classification as a religion should be revoked, eliminating all tax exemptions and all other perquisites that religions receive.ReplyDelete
Perhaps if all moslem migration was halted, the so-called "moderate moslems" would be so darned annoyed they'd "out" the so-called "radical moslems" to the authorities.ReplyDelete
Or they would not.
Either way, I will be neither holding my breath until the "moderates" show up and kick tails and take names -- nor caring less that they did not and all moslems are mightily annoyed at the migration ban.
Are we insane and our (western) governments criminally insane, that in order to neither annoy them nor to in any way inconvenience them, we must permit moslems to murder us at will?
Don't answer that. Rhetorical.

you have very shrewd insights. Brilliant diagnosis and prescription. Take French example and recommend just the opposite, they and their government are losers. In England we have the problem, non-addressed of course, of the intense radical proselytism in the prisons. The Muzz overlord all trade and traffics in the prisons, they impose Sharia to all detainees, and they are 10 times more powerful at creating radicalised islamic converts as any Mosque or any Muslim school. The other point is we should focus on shaming honour killings, sharia, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Turkey..
I wonder how the continued infiltration/subversion of US law enforcement will affect its ability to combat/prevent islamic terrorism? Will officer Abdul be more interested in investigating islamic terrorism? Covering it up? Or facilitating it?ReplyDelete
Extremist Muslims want to behead us. Moderate Muslims want extremist Muslims to behead us.ReplyDelete
Am I missing something? Yes, closing the door would end further Islamist immigration, but how will it stop the Islamist's who are already here in the USA? It would not stop further attacks and would exacerbate their rage if that is possible. I am convinced the only way to stop them is to immediately deport them, and even then some will hide behind their citizenship and rights. We are at war with Islam and it will require a ruthless strategy to defeat and end terrorism.ReplyDelete
And who is the ONLY person who has publicly said that we must limit MUSLIM immigration? The hated Donald Trump...Hillary has a (probable) Muslim Brotherhood sister as her closest aide. Hillary has taken millions for her "founation" from Muslims.ReplyDelete
Yet Donald Trump is the villain...
A book recommendation for you, Sir Sultan. Written by a brilliant rabbi, therapist, and strategist who understood deeply why we are at this here particular pass. He died in 2006, leaving a huge hole in the fabric of the West:
"A Failure of Nerve: Leadership in the Age of the Quick Fix"
BTW, we got kicked off Pajamas Media for being "raaacist" because one of our essayists said [in a speculative paper] the same thing you're saying here. The soi-disant "conservatives" have sold their heritage for a sad mess of pottage.
Also, see David Yerushalmi's 2011 participant-observation ethnographic study on the percentages of 'radicalized' mosques in the U.S.ReplyDelete
Sadly, they found it to be ~ 80%. This is a situation that can only be adequately addressed by the joining of forces of two groups: (1) genuinely conservative Jews (i.e., political conservatives), along with (2) the anti-p.c. conservative Christian right. Why these two? They're the only ones capable of making the necessary and very difficult sacrifices that will be required. Don't know how familiar you are the WWII Germans in the underground who called themselves "The White Rose Group". It's starting up again...and if Hillary is elected we will need a similar org here.
Deporting the Muslims would be preferable. But deporting Muslim US citizens isn’t practical. They have rights to remain. Which other countries would be obliged to take them? So all we can really do is criminalize Islam for them, making the practice or promotion of it a capital offense.ReplyDelete
It amazes me that people don't know or accept we are in a war. If it doesn't directly alter their personal lives, they don't care. That is what destroys many nations. I saw a mosque on the news in Texas about 1970. The Muslims were shouting "Death To America." I was a Marine back from Vietnam and I asked my father why the government allows this to happen. He didn't know. "This will be a real problem in the coming years," I told him. He's dead and I'm still here, and I truly believe at my age I'm going to have to fight for my country against enemies again. I'm a Catholic Marine and pro Israel. Muslims who want to kill me are my genetic enemy. I also want to kill them because I know you can't co-exist with them. They must be taken out, period, with no mercy. I believe they are terrified of Trump. This can't be a bad thing.ReplyDelete
I don't remember Trump ever saying to deport Muslim US Citizens, but the Dems push that and call him a racist. They forget about Carter and the Iranians. Trump wants refugees who can't be vetted out of the country. I agree that most U.S. Muslims look the other way when faced with terrorism from Islam, and those people should be punished in America if they commit a crime. Obama is currently letting every criminal out he can, and I would bet they are all Muslim converts. Those rich white liberals in the suburbs are going to regret electing him. They talk about Trump lacking experience, but Obama had no experience with even a job before he became President. He always has been a Muslim plant as far as I can see.ReplyDelete
Not related but, for a reasonReplyDelete
Very insightful article. This sentence hit the nail on the head:ReplyDelete
"The reason is simple. Unlike classic Islamic terrorism which required organization and infrastructure, the new brand of Islamic terror only needs one thing… Muslims."
When Trump wins (clapping) can we as citizens or he as the president bring charges against Obama?ReplyDelete
