Individual Jihad

Targeting Americans for mass slaughter.

Christopher Hitchens in 2009: "The battle will go on for the rest of our lives."

...What nobody in authority thinks us grown-up enough to be told is this: We had better get used to being the civilians who are under a relentless and planned assault from the pledged supporters of a wicked theocratic ideology. These people will kill themselves to attack hotels, weddings, buses, subways, cinemas, and trains. They consider Jews, Christians, Hindus, women, homosexuals, and dissident Muslims (to give only the main instances) to be divinely mandated slaughter victims. Our civil aviation is only the most psychologically frightening symbol of a plethora of potential targets. 

The future murderers will generally not be from refugee camps or slums (though they are being indoctrinated every day in our prisons); they will frequently be from educated backgrounds, and they will often not be from overseas at all. They are already in our suburbs and even in our military. 

We can expect to take casualties. The battle will go on for the rest of our lives. Those who plan our destruction know what they want, and they are prepared to kill and die for it. Those who don't get the point prefer to whine about "endless war," accidentally speaking the truth about something of which the attempted Christmas bombing over Michigan was only a foretaste. While we fumble with bureaucracy and euphemism, they are flying high...

The Islamic State claims the Orlando killer as one of its fighters.

Wonder if, now, the SF Board of Supervisors will pass a resolution of outrage toward this act? If so I doubt they will mention the linkage between this person and Jihad.

I doubt it, too. There was no mention of Islam in that 2005 resolution---Peskin voted for it---that called for a new trial for Mumia Abu-Jamal. He was black, the cop he killed was white, so progressive ideology required that he must have been innocent.
