One thing you have to give Faisal Shazad, the recently caught Pakistani who left a car with explosives in New York’s Time Square, he is quite open about killing infidels. His motto is, “Killing an infidel a day keeps my mother-in-law away.”
In front of the judge, Mr. Shahzad endorsed attacks on the United States, declaring he was a “Muslim soldier” who believed that killing children was justified in the war against America.
“I don’t recall that I’ve really ever seen or known of someone who was actually an activist operative, a committed jihadist, who in this length of time became converted, showed remorse,” said,Mary Jo White, a former United States attorney for the Southern District of New York who oversaw terrorism prosecutions from 1993 to 2002 that led to some 30 convictions.
Ms. White said Mr. Shahzad’s statements recalled a 1998 fatwa by Osama bin Laden directing Muslims to kill Americans, civilian or military, anywhere in the world.
“His allocution really embodies that credo,” she said, “and he’s telling the world that just because he’s pleading guilty under the U.S. criminal justice system, which he doesn’t credit, that does not mean for an instant that he has any remorse for what he did.”
Mr. Shazad loves his work as a terrorist and would gladly kill Americans again if given the chance, he told the judge.
“I finally have found a good reason to get up in the morning. Who needs anti-depressants when you can just kill in the name of Allah? I will go to heaven and have seventy virgins plus a nice location near a gym, hopefully. Is that asking too much?”
On July 14, an Arab TV station released a tape of him announcing,”The attack on the United States will be a revenge for all the mujahedeen and oppressed Muslims,” Shahzad said in the tape, according to Al-Arabiya. “Eight years have passed since the Afghanistan war and you shall see how the Muslim war has just begun and how Islam will spread across the world.”
Yeah, tell it the Marines, Jack.
There are many, many more like him out there. They see this as a religious imperative; kill infidels. The Koran teaches this, they claim. It is their duty as Muslims to murder and kill infidels who reject Islam.
We are at war whether we want it or not. The Muslim world has declared war on the Western Judeo-Christian civilization.
