According to the Times On Line, the perpetrator was on a terrorist watch list, but not the no-fly list. Somehow he was able to carry a two part explosive device aboard Northwest 253 and set it off on the aircraft neared Detroit. After the shoe bomber incident eight years ago and the recent incident in Saudi Arabia, when a Muslim detonated a bomb he had swallowed, somebody should have wised up. While there are Muslims on this planet, there will be no security. Allowing them to access their favorite bombing venues is suicidal insanity.
There is only one way to prevent those attacks: clip their wings; prevent Muslims from entering this country by air. After they switch to blowing up cruise liners, perhaps our government will wise up enough to bar their entry completely. This is common sense, not rocket science.
The following petition is long overdue.
To: U.S. Congress
Whereas a Muslim attempted to destroy a commercial flight from Nigeria to Detroit as it made its landing approach on December 25, 2009,
and whereas the bombing, if successful, would have killed many people on the ground and done great property damage,
and whereas it is the intention and desire of Islam to do maximal damage and injury to "...raise the anger of disbelievers nor inflict any injury upon an enemy... "[Noble Qur'an, Hilali & Khan, At-Taubah 9:120]
and whereas it is impossible to effectively and reliably prevent them from boarding with explosives and other dangerous materials
the undersigned petitioners demand the enactment & enforcement of legislation prohibiting any and all Muslims from boarding any and all commercial flights destined to land on or fly over the territory of the United States of America.
If you favor national security and flight safety, sign the petition linked above and urge everyone you can influence to sign it. If you perceive the petition to be bigoted, racist or hateful, you are too stupid and ignorant to be a participant in modern society. In that case, it would be better if you'd remove yourself from the voter registration rolls and the gene pool.
Recognizing the identity & character of our sworn enemy is not bigotry, neither is it racism; it is common sense. Islam declared perpetual war against Jews & Christians in 623. Islamic law requires a minimum of one attack against us in every year, failing only when Islam is too weak to mount a successful attack. Doubters and dissenters should read Surah at-Taubah and Sahih Bukhari 52. You can find crucial quotes with links to source in Jihad.chm.Now is the time to drop the blindfold of political correctness & hoodwink of multiculturalism. Open your eyes and examine objective factual reality. 278 people had a close call with death because our government is too cowardly to name and shame the enemy. The bombing of Pan Am 103 should have been a sufficient lesson. Richard Reid's failed mission should have been a sufficient lesson. Will you ever learn?
