On Thursday North America suffered a terrorist attack by a Muslim man for the 3rd day in a row!
On Tuesday a Muslim “extremist” rammed his car into two Canadian soldiers just outside of the city of Montreal. One of the soldiers was killed and the other was severely injured. The terrorist tried to escape but was eventually shot and killed by police.
On Wednesday another Muslim “extremist” shot and killed a soldier standing honor guard at the National War Memorial in Ottawa. The gunman then proceeded to the Canadian Parliament building where he fired 30 – 50 shots causing some injuries. The terrorist was eventually killed by the sergeant-at-arms in the House of Commons, who happened to be armed.
Then on Thursday, the latest “Lone Wolf” attack took place in New York City.
A hatchet-wielding Muslim man with what the New York post describes as “militant leanings” attacked a group of police officers on a busy street in Queens.
Video shows Thompson pulling the hatchet from a bag, then taking a running leap at Healey and his three companions as they stood together on the rainy sidewalk.
Holding the hatchet in two hands like a baseball bat, he swung three times, one source who saw the video told The Post.
The first swing broke the one cop’s arm. The second was a miss. The third struck Healey in the back of the head.
Witnesses described the horror and the aftermath.
“The cops yelled ‘Drop it!’” said rattled eyewitness Larry Bethune, 44, of Hollis, Queens, recalling the moment the psycho pulled a small hatchet from his jacket.
“And he lunged at one of them,” the witness remembered. “He raised his arm up high and brought it straight down on the cop’s head.
“The cop went down to the ground, face first. It was horrible. I’ve never seen anything like that on Jamaica Avenue,” he added. “The cop’s just lying there with blood pouring down his face. He didn’t move.” Another witness, Kelli Reddica, 24, recalled hearing seven shots ring out as the crazed man was brought down, and seeing the downed cop’s horrible injury.
“He looked like he couldn’t move, and blood was gushing out of his head. Blood just drenched the side of his face,” she said.
The hatchet terrorist, Zale Thompson, 32 of Queens – was a recent convert to Islam who seems to have radicalized pretty quickly. His social media posts give evidence to his “extremism”…
“Helicopters, big military will be useless on their own soil,” Thompson raged in a private Facebook post, Fox News reported.
“They will not be able to defeat our people if we use guerilla warfare. Attack their weak flanks,” he added.
Thompson’s Facebook page includes a passage from the Quran in Arabic script beseeching Allah’s guidance in finding “the straight path” and a black-and-white photograph of a black-scarved militant.
Three days, three very random “Lone Wolf” terrorist attacks in very public places. Perhaps that long held hope that we were fighting them over there, so they wouldn’t come over here… isn’t as true as we had hoped? This is the real danger of Islam, isn’t it? Sure, 90% of American Muslims may not ever commit a terrorist act… but that 10% still represents thousands of people. As long as Islam continues to grow and spread, we will continue to be in danger.
