Terrorism Defined

We thought that when President Trump was elected the word games that Obama used to skirt identifying terrorism for what it is would end. However, given the number of Obama holdovers in our national security agencies, it appears that the government will continue to try to snow its citizens about the domestic security threats that have been unleashed against them.

The latest examples of this policy of lying through semantics are the terrorist attacks against the Republican Terrorismmembers of Congress in Alexandria, Virginia and against the police at the Flint, Michigan airport.

After just one week the attack on the Republican members of Congress was quickly labeled “not terrorism” by the FBI.

"At this time, the FBI has assessed the shooter James Hodgkinson acted alone. We also assess that there was no connection to terrorism," Andrew Veil, assistant director in charge of the FBI field office, told reporters at a press conference in Washington Wednesday morning. "It was an assault on a member of Congress, assault on a federal officer."

According to reporting by Anna Giaritelli of the Washington Examiner, Hodgkinson's phone contained pictures and videos he took during trips to the National Mall, U.S. Capitol, Supreme Court and monuments between April 11 and April 26. He also took photos at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park on April 15.

"At this point in the investigation, the FBI does not believe that these photographs represented surveillance of intended targets, however, we continue to learn more about Hodgkinson's recent activities," the FBI said in the statement released Wednesday.

The “no connection with terrorism” assessment demonstrates the FBI’s unfortunate lack of knowledge of the history of Leftist terrorism in the United States and abroad, and especially the Left’s doctrine of individual acts of “resistance,” that have their roots in the late Nineteenth and early Twentieth Century Socialist Revolutionary movements.

Since this is the 100th Anniversary year of the Russian Revolution of 1917 it is worth recalling that a fundamental doctrine of the Russian Socialist Revolutionary Party was change through individual acts of terror. They believed that by assassinating certain dignitaries of state, above all the Czar, they could shatter the foundation of the existing system and bring about socialism.

Acting individually or in small groups they assassinated dozens of Russian government officials and leading Czarist political figures.

This commitment to individual acts of terror was so fierce that when some Socialist Revolutionaries decided the Communist Bolsheviks had deviated from their socialist ideals they attempted to assassinate Communist leader Vladimir Lenin and, seriously wounding him, they very nearly succeeded.

What made the Socialist Revolutionaries terrorists was not their organizational structure, but their individual commitment to bring about political change through assassination, bombings and other violent means.

In other words, the same motivation that James Hodgkinson had when he attacked the Republican members of Congress in Alexandria, Virginia.

James Hodgkinson has been variously described as “deranged” and “sick,” but he wasn’t at all sick or deranged. He knew exactly what he was doing and why he was doing it – to achieve political change through violence.

Likewise, regarding the Flint, Michigan attack the FBI seems woefully ignorant of the Koran and the call to individual jihad deeply-seated in Muslim culture.

Shouting “Allahu akbar,” Arabic for “God is great,” Amor Ftouhi, a dual citizen of Canada and Tunisia, stabbed Flint, Michigan police Lt. Jeff Neville with a large knife.

According to reporting by the Associated Press, Special Agent in charge David Gelios says authorities are investigating the attack by Amor Ftouhi as an act of terrorism. He says authorities have no indication at this time that Ftouhi was involved in a “wider plot,” but the investigation is in its early stages.

Once again, if the FBI were to look to the Koran, the source document for Ftouhi’s attack, they would have no doubt that the attack was indeed terrorism.

According to the writers at, the Koran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called 'hypocrites' and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.

Here are just a few examples:

Koran (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"

Koran (3:151) - "Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority".

Koran (4:95) - "Not equal are those of the believers who sit (at home), except those who are disabled (by injury or are blind or lame, etc.), and those who strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives. Allah has preferred in grades those who strive hard and fight with their wealth and their lives above those who sit (at home). Unto each, Allah has promised good (Paradise), but Allah has preferred those who strive hard and fight, above those who sit (at home) by a huge reward "

Koran (2:216) - "Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not."

In addition to shouting “Allahu akbar,” Ftouhi made references during the attack to people being killed in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Just like the Socialist Revolutionaries of the Russian Revolution of 1917, Muslims have a recognized ideology calling for individual acts of violence against non-believers, and it is that ideology – not mental illness – that drives Muslims to commit acts of terrorism.

However, as has been the case with every other Muslim terrorist attack in America the Council for American Islamic Relations, and other apologists for Islam’s war on the West, will soon be out to claim that Amor Ftouhi was not religiously motivated, he was, like James Hodgkinson “sick” or “deranged,” but that will be a lie, and they know it.

The political and religious motivation of the attack is clear, but somehow the FBI is so ignorant of Islam that it can’t quite call it terrorism unless there’s a “network” behind it.

It’s time to stop the semantic games and call these acts of individual violence by the Left and by Muslims what they are – with or without a network behind them – they are terrorism.

Terrorists from Canada

You can expect more terrorist coming from Canada. Canada has no protocol for vetting Muslims coming to Canada from a Muslim dominated country. And the Liberal government in Canada plans on bring in more.
