DEFENDING THE WEST
Red Bill: Disaster looms for New York
Exclusive: Pamela Geller questions past of Democrat nominee for mayor
Bill de Blasio, the Democrat nominee for mayor of New York City, leads his Republican rival, Joseph J. Lhota, by more than 40 points, so he is virtually certain to be the next mayor. Now, 12 years after Sept. 11, when New Yorkers were literally throwing themselves out of a building attacked by jihadists, a terror-supporting Marxist is a shoo-in for Gracie Mansion.
It seems as if New York is a victim of Giuliani’s great success in preventing the continual pursuit of the jihad against the most desirable target of the Muslim world, New York City. Giuliani’s policies were followed, in a rare example of good sense, by his successor, Michael Bloomberg, in his unwavering support of Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly. De Blasio is living off the successes of Republican terror policies.
Bill de Blasio plans that he will not allow surveillance of jihadi suspects and terror mosques. This, although two New Yorkers were charged with plotting jihad terror attacks in the last week. And since Sept. 11, there have been plots against the Brooklyn Bridge, the subway system, the stock exchange, Citigroup headquarters, the Garment District, the PATH train, JFK airport, Long Island Railroad, synagogues in the Bronx and Manhattan, Times Square and more.
What’s de Blasio’s strategy? The Faisal Shahzad approach? Let’s just hope the bomb doesn’t go off? We see what happens when you cater to Islamic supremacist demands of removing jihad and counterterror programs. The Boston bombing – those people are dead because law enforcement didn’t pursue leads they received, out of fear of offending Muslims. That’s de Blasio’s plan.
Last Thursday, de Blasio met at a “Muslims for de Blasio” rally with Muslim groups that seek to dismantle counterterrorism measures that have kept New York City safe from jihadists. New York is the Muslim terrorists’ most desirable target in the world. De Blasio promised these groups that he would give them what they wanted and end surveillance of mosques and Muslim organizations with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. This surveillance is in large part what has prevented another major jihad attack in the city since Sept. 11. So, of course stealth jihadis like “Palestinian” activist and vicious Jew-hater Linda Sarsour want this surveillance ended, and the leftist de Blasio is anxious to accommodate them. Linda Sarsour is an apologist for terror who calls Zionism “racism.” De Blasio happily stood with her at the “Muslims for de Blasio” event.
What’s even more disturbing is that while he is kissing up to Islamic supremacists, de Blasio is criticizing Joe Lhota for visiting a Borough Park synagogue and respecting Jewish law.Read the rest here
