Jihadist 5th Column Targets The Military



There are certainly many patriotic Muslims who have served, or are currently serving, in our armed forces. One such example is Zuhdi Jasser, who served our country honorably and now speaks publicly against Jihadists – at extreme risk to his own life as well as to the lives of his family.

However, as long as our government refuses to acknowledge and address the presence of radicalized Muslims in the U.S. armed forces, our nation’s military personnel and their families will remain vulnerable where they should be most safe, on a U.S. military base.

Infiltration: Though the Fort Hood copycat shooter wasn't motivated by jihad, the FBI is hunting for another member of the Army, a Muslim convert allegedly planning a terrorist attack on U.S. bases.

After a Muslim Army major in 2009 massacred 13 fellow soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, the FBI and Pentagon opened more than 100 investigations into suspected Islamic extremists inside the military. At least a dozen showed a strong intent to attack military targets.

These ongoing threats come on top of the 30 plots or attacks against military targets within the U.S. that law enforcement has disrupted or prosecuted since 2001, and don't include the three military-related terror busts from this year alone, which are:

• Nicholas Teausant, aka Assad, a California National Guardsman and convert to Islam, who was arrested last month trying to join al-Qaida fighters in Syria. (An FBI affidavit quotes Assad as saying "I despise America" and threatening to kill his "kaffir" mother if she tried to stop him from joining "Allah's army.")

• Craig Benedict Baxam, a Maryland Army vet and recent convert who was imprisoned in January for trying to join al-Qaida in Somalia. (Court records show he told FBI agents he planned to fight the U.S. in jihad.)

• Mozaffar Khazaee, a U.S. defense contractor arrested in January for shipping secret documents detailing the F35 Joint Strike Fighter program to Iran. (He was taken into custody while catching a flight to Tehran.)

Despite continued evidence Muslims and Muslim converts pose a threat to military and national security, the Pentagon continues to make special accommodations for Muslim soldiers. Earlier this year, it relaxed uniform rules to allow Islamic beards and turbans.

Such accommodations only attract more Muslims at a time when recent terror cases highlight the ongoing danger of them in uniform. What's needed, instead, is special screening and monitoring of such recruits.
