Rep. King's Radical Islam Probe Long Overdue

Here is the most important information in a recent foxnews.com story about a Muslim Saudi student, studying in Texas, who was arrested for planning terror attacks on targets including president Bush’s Dallas home:


Khalid Aldawsari, who is legally in the U.S. on a student visa… entered the U.S. in October 2008 from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to study at Texas Tech University, then transferred earlier this year to nearby South Plains College.’ (end of excerpt)


Legally here on a student visa. This tells us that we should immediately halt all student visas and scholarships for people from Islamic nations. Because this guy is not alone; there are thousand like him in our nation.


At the same time, there are millions of Christians in many nations around the world who would love to come to America. We should welcome them instead. They are not trying to kill us.


More disturbingly here is one detail that was not in the foxnews.com story, this from KDAF-TV the33tv.com. Note the italicized line:


‘FBI agents also found a notebook at Aldawsari’s residence that appeared to be a diary or journal.  According to the affidavit, excerpts from the journal indicate that Aldawsari had been planning to commit a terrorist attack in the United States for years.  One entry describes how Aldawsari sought and obtained a particular scholarship because it allowed him to come directly to (the United States) and helped him financially, which he said “will help tremendously in providing me with the support I need for Jihad.”  The entry continues: “And now, after mastering the English language, learning how to build explosives and continuous planning to target the infidel Americans, it is time for Jihad.”’ (end of excerpt) 


Just think: A scholarship for a Saudi Muslim while American families are struggling with outrageous tuition costs. This is a travesty. This is our multicultural State Department at work, welcoming more and more Islamic students into the country and giving them financial aid. Because no matter who the president is, the State Department operates independently and has a left-wing agenda. Obama is accelerating this Islamic inflow process.


Perhaps these Muslims should go back to their nations and build them up. This Saudi student was studying chemical engineering. Perhaps he could have taken his knowledge to impoverished Egypt to create prosperity there that the people want. But no. Tens of thousands of Egyptian professionals are here in the United States. Because they want a better life.


So perhaps we should have a new policy. Since these radical Islamists hate the Christian West they should be denied admission or expelled so that they can direct their energies back into their Islamic countries. There they can exhibit their hatred of the West by rejecting all vestiges of Western progress like electricity, computers, the internal combustion engine, satellite communications, metallurgy, electronics, hydraulics, air travel, lasers, radar, plastics, composites, modern medicine, modern agriculture, modern oil drilling techniques and all the thousands of other theories and processes that  have created the world’s prosperity, finally allowing man to rise above economic subsistence.


Yes, radicals, go back to Islam and build on your own technology –  which is nonexistent. Which is why Muslims are immigrating to the West by the millions.


Indeed it is time for America to halt all Muslim immigration into America. Europe is finally casting a distrustful eye at their Muslim populations as leaders in France, Germany and the UK are saying in unison that “multiculturalism has failed”.


When will America realize this?


We are. Republican congressman Peter King of Long Island (New York) is planning to hold hearings on the radicalization of Islam in America. He has had personal experience with it.


King wrote recently that such hearings are critical because terrorists are “recruiting Muslims living legally in the United States — homegrown terrorists who have managed to stay under the anti-terror radar screen.” King added that American Muslims are not cooperating with law enforcement “to anywhere near the extent that they should. With al-Qaeda trying to recruit from within their community it’s important that they cooperate.”


King said that before 9/11 that he had had a close relationship with the Muslim community. “I attended the Islamic Center of Long Island in Westbury on a regular basis, visited socially with local Muslim leaders, had Muslim students intern in my office, and advocated for Pakistan’s position against India in Kashmir,” he said.


But after 9/11 King says that some Muslim leaders “were insisting there was no evidence that al-Qaeda was responsible for the attacks”, even claiming that it could have been the CIA, FBI or Israel.


King said he knows of imams “instructing members of their mosques not to cooperate with law enforcement officials investigating the recruiting of young men in their mosques as suicide bombers.”


King, of course, had been maligned by Islamic groups and by Democrats in America for these planned hearings. The same groups who are strangely silent about Islamic college students coming to Texas and plotting against us.


King even has been threatened. So there you go.  Good luck to congressman King in his investigation. It is long overdue.
