From San Bernardino to Orlando, to…?
The horrifying massacre at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, FL, is not an isolated event; it is part of a campaign. The Jihad against the infidels within the continental U.S. has been underway for some time now. We should not be misled into thinking that this attack was aimed specifically against homosexuals; it was made against the Western culture and the Western civilization.
The December 2015 San Bernardino massacre, where 14 people were murdered, was the worst act of terror on U.S. soil since 9/11, until the Orlando massacre. Like Sunday night’s bloodbath, the perpetrators were extremists and inspired by foreign terrorist groups. Now, just over six months after that tragic event in San Bernardino, the Orlando nightmare dwarfs that tragedy, with its 49 fatalities and 53 wounded.
As disturbing as it is that such tragedies are happening, we should not be surprised at their occurrence. Since its inception, the Obama administration has admitted numerous Islamic fundamentalists into the U.S. and has helped them settle freely and without scrutiny.
Besides the threat that these terrorists pose, this also creates a social climate conducive to the emergence of “homegrown” terrorists such as the zealots from Orlando and San Bernardino. The FBI will not be able to track down and arrest all the extremists before they act. When the atmosphere is lenient and tolerant toward fundamentalists, they can spread their venom of hatred freely, and as their numbers grow, so will their ruthlessness. America should brace itself for even tougher times ahead.
And as it has been since the Jews were exiled from their land, in tough times they are the first to take the heat. U.S. Jewry will be no exception.
