In the nearly ten years it has been since the attacks of September 11, 2001 on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center. Why haven't we had a major
terrorist attack in the United States since then? Is it because of where we are cracking down on "terrorists" by way of the NSA and the FBI spying
on the entire populace of the United States. Or maybe the Department of Homeland Security has actually done the job it was supposed to do and keep us
safe. I'm not saying that an attack is imminent, but I am wondering why we have not had a major terrorist attack on our soil since 9-11. If it has
anything to do with the government, then they have been on their toes in preventing an attack.
Ever since the attacks of 9-11, both the mainstream media and the government have been saying that "All Muslims are terrorists and they should be
dealt with." For one, it is not fair for someone, especially the government, to lump what is inherently two groups of people in to the same class.
Actually, governments around the world have been lumping the peaceful of the Nation of Islam into this one group along with the extremists. It's been
going on since the first hijackings of TWA and Air France flights that the Palestinians committed back the late 1960s and the early 1970s. The way I
see it is that it is only a small percentage, close to five to ten percent, of Muslims that are the extremists. Look at Muhammed Ali, he became one
most well known advocates for peace and solving world hunger. A man who has spent the last twenty five years praying for peace the world over. Yet he
gets lumped into this small percentage by the media because he is a Muslim.
From what the mainstream media tells you and I, it is only Muslim "extremists" than can carry out terrorist acts with great success. Yet the
"media" absolutely refuses to acknowledge the threat of "homegrown terrorism" that has been running amok in the United States, and abroad for that
matter, for at least the past one hundred and fifty years. I mean look at what the Ku Klux Klan did for years in the Southern United States. Yet no
one in the "media" seems to either want or be able to pay attention to the threat that "homegrown terrorism" has become to us.
The F.B.I. has known for years pertaining as to how much of a threat domestic terrorism is to the United States. However, it seems that little has
been has been done by the F.B.I. to prevent an attack by a domestic terrorist. Seems to me that the FBI and the NSA should be looking more closely at
these "homegrown terrorists" that are across the country. I do realize that some steps have been taken by the FBI and the NSA to avert an attack by
domestic terrorists with in the last ten to fifteen years. Does it mean that they have taken down every single domestic terrorist and domestic
terrorist front? By no means have they taken down every single domestic terrorist group. For all we know, the next attack could be just around the
corner and I can almost certainly guarantee you that it won't be an Islamic extremist or extremists that commit the attack.
One particular "incident" that was brought to my attention about twelve years ago pertaining to the the crash of Amtrak's "Sunset Limited" near
Palo Verde, Arizona on October 9, 1995. In this case, evidence found pointed towards sabotage of the tracks by either a disgruntled railroad employee
or by domoestic terrorists in an attempt to rob the train. Four type written notes signed by the "Sons of the Gestapo" were found in the area after
the crash. The FBI maintains to this day that the notes were a ploy made by a person or a group of persons in order to hide that a train was going to
be robbed. Even if it was a disgruntled railroad employee as the FBI has said. That in itself would constitute an act of domestic terrorism were as
the tracks were tampered with.
If the "Islamic extremist" is the only way that a terrorist attack can happen on U.S. soil because "they hate our freedoms and our way of life."
Then how do you explain the nearly two dozen attacks that have occurred on U.S. soil in at least the last century? None of these attacks had any ties
what so ever to the religion of Islam when these attacks occurred. Is our government, and a few others around the world, using Islam as an excuse to
wage the "War On Terror?" I for one believe that we are using it as an excuse to wage what has basically became a holy war.
If you ask me, the only people we should fear are the ones in charge of our governments.
