Two stories highlight the complete disconnect with reality that liberals and the media seem to currently be facing. The recent terror attack in Orlando is heartbreaking – as the death of innocents always is – but liberals and their friends in the media seem to be missing the point of what has just taken place. Instead of focusing on the real issue at play in the attack, these two ridiculous groups have been focusing their attention on gun control and the 2nd Amendment. (While ignoring the fact that the Pulse nightclub was a “gun free” zone.)
What is it that liberals are not getting? The real problem in Orlando wasn’t guns – it was Islam.
Two different stories from central Florida should make this clear for us.
First, back in April, Orlando’s WFTV 9 News reported that a Muslim leader who has argued that killing homosexuals is the compassionate thing for Muslims to do would soon be arriving to speak at a mosque in Sanford, Florida (near Orlando).
The Husseini Islamic Center, 5211 Hester Ave, Sanford, FL 32773, invited Sheikh Farrokh Sekaleshfar to speak at their Mosque. Dr. Sekaleshfar says the killing of homosexuals is the compassionate thing to do.
In a 2013 speech Sheikh Sekaleshfar said this regarding gays, “Death is the sentence. We know there’s nothing to be embarrassed about this, death is the sentence…We have to have that compassion for people, with homosexuals, it’s the same, out of compassion, let’s get rid of them now.”
This call for the killing of homosexuals cannot be ignored because Sheikh Sekaleshfar is considered one of Islam’s foremost experts on Islamic law and his word is taken very seriously by millions of world Muslims.
The second story may be even more damning for liberals because it directly ties Hillary Clinton to the Orlando terrorist attack.
Retired Homeland Security agent Philip Haney told WND News that a case he had been developing while Hillary Clinton was the Secretary of State could have prevented both the Boston Marathon bombing and the Orlando Shooting.
Haney tells WND that the mosque where Orlando killer Omar Mir Siddique Mateen worshiped several times a week also has a tie to that case.
He noted that the FBI twice had Mateen on its radar, but closed down the investigations both times…
Haney helped develop a case in 2011 on a worldwide Islamic movement known as Tablighi Jamaat… Within a few months, the case drew the “concern” of the State Department and the DHS’s Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Office because the Obama administration believed it unfairly singled out Muslims. The intelligence, however, had been used to connect members of the movement to several terrorist organizations and financing at the highest levels, including for Hamas and al-Qaida.
In the immediate aftermath of the Orlando massacre, Haney has found that the Islamic Center of Fort Pierce, Florida, is part of a network in the United States that originated in the Indian subcontinent.
That means two different, major mosques in Central Florida have close connections radical Islamic terrorism and beliefs. Both mosques have been connected to major terror attacks and terrorism conspiracies within the USA, and as Haney points out, the work Homeland Security was doing before being shut down by Hillary Clinton may have stopped the last two major attack on US soil.
More than laying blame at Hillary Clinton’s feet (which is not what I am trying to do here – if there were real concerns for civil liberties, those have to outweigh our fear), what I want to point out is just how normal these “extreme” beliefs are in “moderate” Islam. Neither the mosque in Sanford, nor the mosque in Port St. Lucie are considered dens of extremism, but both routinely teach what we would consider extremist beliefs and philosophy. “Radical” Islam is a lot more normal than liberals like to pretend…and their delusion is putting us all in danger.
