Another Day of Jihad in America…and the National TV Yawns

posted by Christopher Holton

Don’t bother checking the television news networks for these two stories. You won’t find them.

The stories must not fit the narratives that the various 24/7 TV news networks are pushing. Or maybe they just won’t attract large audiences for ratings.

At any rate, yesterday two unrelated stories emerged in Utah and New Jersey that indicate that acts of individual Jihad continue to pose a significant threat to our public safety.

In St. George (YES, we noted the irony too), Utah, an unidentified high school student showed up to school with a backpack-borne Improvised Explosive Device (IED). Fortunately he did not detonate the bomb, which police indicated had the potential to cause a great deal of destruction and casualties.

The police went to the student/bomber’s home and found lots of bomb-making material as well as information on the Islamic State, which evidently the kid was promoting online.

Further investigation uncovered that the junior jihadi had taken down the American flag and replaced it with the black standard often associated with the Islamic State. He also admitted to spray painting ISIS graffiti on the school.

There is an old saying about the modern news media: “if it bleeds it leads.” Because this bomb did not detonate, the national news media is essentially ignoring this story.

For more details, check out this article from a local TV station in Utah:

Meanwhile, 2,000+ miles to the east, a little known jihadi attack case resurfaced in court yesterday. Thirty-four year old Ali Muhammad Brown pled guilty in court to murdering 19-year-old Brendan Tevlin in late June 2014 near Newark.

Readers may recall when the murder occurred that authorities and the news media both played down the jihadi angle.

In court yesterday, not only did Brown admit that it was an act of jihad, he also confessed killing three other people as acts of jihad in Washington state.

Two of the victims in Washington state were leaving a gay night club, making this the second known act of jihad directed against gay Americans, along with the horrific Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando. For some reason, the mainstream news media is ignoring the fact that jihadists continue to attack homosexuals around the world.

More details are available at this link from the Associated Press:

The Philippines: Another Jihad the World is Ignoring

Not a week goes by these days in which we are not reminded that there is a global Jihadist insurgency. It is not homogenous; the various Islamic insurgent groups are not united. But they do all possess the same basic goal: to see to it that allah’s law rules supreme on earth.

Yes, we’re in a world war. Our enemies know it, but we continue to deny it.

For example, the Jihadist insurgency in the southern Philippines, which has been going on for many years, continues to flare up periodically. It’s a bloody war that most of the world knows nothing about because the Western media rarely reports on it.

The Philippine government made the mistake of entering into a truce with the Jihadist Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) almost a year ago. (Please, no stupid jokes about this savage group’s acronym.)

Right from the start, a breakaway Jihadist faction, the Boro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF), continued waging Jihad despite the truce. In addition, in the latest outbreak, members of the MILF were reportedly involved.

It all started when Filipino police conducted a raid looking for Malaysian bomb-maker and Jemaah Islamiyah leader Zulkifli bin Hir. (Jemaah Islamiyah is a third Jihadist organization based out of Malaysia.)


Also known as “Marwan,” Zulkifli bin Hir is believed to have conducted bomb making training for yet another Jihadist group, Abu Sayyaf. The U.S. is offering a $5 million reward for him. He is believed to have been hiding in the Southern Philippines since 2003.

Anyway, the operation did not go well unfortunately. Depending on whose numbers you use, somewhere between 37 and 64 Filipino police officers of the elite Special Action Force were killed in the operation and an unknown number of others may have been captured.


“This is the single-largest loss of life in recent memory to our security forces,” Interior Minister Mar Roxas said at a televised press conference.

Only 11 Jihadis were killed, 6 BIFF and 5 MILF, and none are believed to have been bin Hir/Marwan.

The Philippine armed forces are now being reduced to calling on the Jihadists to release any prisoners they may have taken.

The operation took place in an area controlled by the MILF. The fact that BIFF Jihadis were also operating in the area and the fact that the Philippine police suspect that a notorious, most wanted Jihadi is hiding out there tells us all we need to know about the worth of the so-called truce.

The Philippine government has joined its European and American counterparts in going into full-blown denial about the apparent failure of its truce with the Jihadists.
