How many terrorists are going to receive amnesty if the 'Group of 8' is successful in getting them amnesty?

Maybe there are reasons why our borders should be enforced, our immigration laws should be enforced, and why we should know who is living and working in the United States.

Is this really the country that we want to live in? How many more innocent people must be murdered?

From another one of the e-mails that I recently received:

>>Frightening incompetence and willful ignorance from the Obama Administration!
"STATE DEPT: NO ACTIVE AL QAEDA, HEZBOLLAH TERROR CELLS IN WESTERN HEMISPHERE"

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2013/06/03/State-Dept-No-Active-Al-Qaeda-Hezbollah-Terror-Cells-In-Western-Hemisphere

With the results of Obama's policy in Libya, Egypt, Iran, Tunisia, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Israel, Boston, Texas, Fort Hood, et al, one has to wonder if there is not an active al Qaeda cell in the White House headed by Hussein Obama himself!

Frightening.<<

Texas: Hizballah member falsely claimed to be U.S. special forces officer

"Accused ex-Hezbollah member referred to as “god of death”

“In the defense's version, Wissam Allouche was a former linguist for the U.S. Army who ran a gas station in Northeast San Antonio as he became an American citizen."

"But to counterterrorism officials, Allouche, 44, belonged to Hezbollah, falsely claimed to be a U.S. special forces officer during visits to Fort Sam Houston, and even tried to hook up with women at the post, possibly to gain access to sensitive information.” […]

“Allouche was arrested by the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force here last week after being indicted on charges of not disclosing, during his quest to obtain his U.S. citizenship, his membership in the Amal militia and Hezbollah in Lebanon in the 1980s. He's also charged with not disclosing his prior membership in those groups when he applied for a security clearance with the Defense Department as he sought a contracting job.” […]

“The FBI raided his then-home in Universal City in 2011, and found documents which they claim he fabricated to falsely show he had security clearances, membership in U.S. special forces and Defense Department intelligence units. “He admitted on tape that he was a member of Amal and that he was a commander of Hezbollah,” prosecutor Mark Roomberg told the judge, who agreed to keep Allouche behind bars pending trial.”

“Roomberg also claimed Allouche admitted “sodomizing and murdering an Israeli POW.”

More…

Apparently, since he has been a “good citizen” some feel like he should get a pass. What could go wrong, right?

Evil people have always found a cause to justify their deeds. In the 1800's Benjamin Let hid out in the U.S. but most of his evil deeds were committed in Canada against the British. He tried to destroy Brock's Monument in Queenston on April 17, 1840.

From ABC News:

"Mansfield, 33, is from Flint, Mich., and converted to Islam several years ago after marrying an Arab man, her grandmother told ABC News. The couple divorced, but Mansfield continued to wear a Muslim head scarf, and had previously traveled to the region three years ago when visiting Dubai..."

She also had an 18-year old daughter which means she gave birth at about 15 years of age, so finding a Muslim to marry may have been worth it to her as she was a single mother of a 13 year old at the time.

USA today:

"The report — from a Syrian media outlet called Breaking News on its website — sought to portray Mansfield as an extremist who was fighting with two other people from England; it said that government forces shot her dead along with her British companions. They reportedly had rifles, clips of ammunition, grenades and the flag of al-Nusra, a group related to al-Qaeda..."

"...Mansfield met an immigrant from the Arab world several years ago and married him. She then converted to Islam and started wearing the hijab.

"They divorced about three years ago after he was able to get a green card that allowed him to stay long-term in the U.S."

Michigan woman dies in Syria fighting for opposition

"A 33-year-old Michigan woman and convert to Islam has been killed in Syria while fighting with opposition forces against the government of President Bashar Assad in the country's civil war, her family said on Thursday."

"The woman's aunt told Reuters that the FBI had informed her on Thursday afternoon of the death of her niece, Nicole Mansfield of Flint, but said she did not have the details of how she died."

"I'm just devastated," said the aunt, Monica Mansfield Speelman. "Evidently, she was fighting with opposition forces."

Speelman said Mansfield, a single mother of an 18-year-old daughter, had converted to Islam about five years ago but that she did not know when her niece had traveled to Syria."

"I didn't think she would stoop that low to go over there and try to harm anybody," Speelman said of her niece, who she said had worked at a group home...."

Uzbek national in Idaho arrested, charged with supporting the IMU

"The Department of Justice arrested an Uzbek national living in Idaho today and charged him with supporting the al Qaeda-linked Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan and possessing an "unregistered destructive device," or bomb. Fazliddin Kurbanov faces charges in both Idaho and Utah, and is accused of conspiring to train others to purchase components to assemble a bomb."

"Kurbanov is "legally present in the United States" at the time of his arrest and is currently living in Boise, Idaho, the Justice Department said in the press release that announced his arrest. He has been charged with "conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization," the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, and "to terrorists," as well as "possessing an unregistered destructive device."

"The Idaho indictment alleges that between August 2012 and May 2013, Kurbanov conspired with others, "both known and unknown," to provide funds and computer software to the IMU. These items were "to be used in preparation for and in carrying out an offense involving the use of a weapon of mass destruction."

"Additionally, he "possessed a destructive device consisting of a combination of parts intended for use in converting any device into a destructive device could be readily assembled." Those parts included "a hollow hand grenade, hobby fuse, aluminum powder, potassium nitrate and sulfur."

"The Utah indictment claims that Kurbanov trained others to "make explosive devices."

"Kurbanov "showed internet videos, conducted instructional shopping trips, provided written recipes and gave verbal instructions on where to obtain the necessary components to construct and use improvised explosive devices." The Justice Dept. said that the bombs were intended to be used "at a place of public use, a public transportation system or infrastructure facility; or destroying a building in interstate commerce."

Muslims get 10- and 20-year sentences for "Minnesota pipeline" to jihad

"Two men were sent to prison Monday for their key roles in what prosecutors said was a terrorist “pipeline” to send young men to fight in the Somali civil war."

"Mahamud Said Omar, 46, a janitor at a Minneapolis mosque, who was convicted in 2012 of aiding foreign terrorism, was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Prosecutors had asked for 50 years."

"Kamal Said Hassan, 28, also of Minneapolis, who pleaded guilty in 2009 to aiding terrorism and lying to the FBI, was sentenced to 10 years."

"He could have received up to 38 years, but prosecutors cited his extensive cooperation which helped them win other convictions."

"The sentences cap a federal investigation lasting more than four years. Authorities sought to shut down a recruiting effort that lured more than 20 young men to Somalia, several of whom died fighting or in suicide bombings."

"Seven more individuals will be sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Michael Davis this week for similar crimes of aiding terrorism in a foreign country; four on Tuesday, and three on Thursday."

"In a statement Monday, John Carlin, acting assistant U.S. Attorney General for national security, hailed the “successful prosecutions” of “two individuals who played crucial roles in raising funds and recruiting fighters from the United States to assist Al-Shabab.”

It wouldn't hurt to infiltrate the Mosques to check up on radical Imams like the mob and Klan were infiltrated. It would also be helpful if the good Muslims would cooperate in bringing these radical Imams to the attention of our security agencies.

After all, what is the common denominator in the lion's share of these attacks?

Getting a heads-up on terrorist plans before they are carried out is the only way to stop them and to save lives. This is in the interest of all law-abiding, peaceful people in every community in our country.

I think we can all agree that there are some countries that are more likely to include terrorists than others. It makes sense that we need to keep track of immigrants coming into our country rather than the current open borders policy that we currently have.

The Russian government even warned us about the older Boston Marathon bomber. Did we act on the info?

Seems to me that we were also warned by other countries for years about the threat of big jets hitting our high rise buildings.

132.

Give or take...

Are you referring to government-sanctioned terrorists like Bill Ayers?

Keep in mind that most people who have known terrorists before they 'terrorized' always seem to say how nice they were and how it is so "unlike them" to do such a thing.

Radicalization is big in the prison system as well.

From the article:

Militant Jihadism: Radicalization, Conversion, Recruitment
(Written by the Canadian Centre for Intelligence and Security Studies, The Norman Paterson School of International Affairs, Carleton University)

“Muslims represent a disproportionate share of the populations of prisons in many Western countries, and Islamist activists often have criminal records. In France it has been suggested that Muslim youth represent over 20% of the prison population. Radical Muslim clerics have been very active in visiting prisons to mobilize alienated and angry youths for the jihadist cause and to proselytize Islam among prisoners of other ethnic and faith communities. In addition, where prisons contain a number of extremists, they can become ‘schools’ where Al Qaeda militants pass on or impose their violent ideology on others. Richard Reid, the “shoe-bomber” who attempted to destroy a passenger aircraft on December 22, 2001, was radicalized in a young offenders’ institution. For him, Islam offered a new start and a more meaningful way of life. In explaining his actions, he referred to the immorality and self-fulfillment of Western society as a threat to Islam.”

Regarding the advantage of converts already within America:

“Converts are prized by radical Islamist groups because of their ability to operate freely in Europe, Asia and North America with¬out arousing the suspicion of security authorities. Like reverts, they are usually eager to accept dangerous assignments as a way of proving their new-found commitment. They are among the most aggressive of Islamist activists.”

I don't think this amnesty plan has a prayer now, the people wont stand for this "sign here your legal" scheme.

The current Amnesty Bill should be absolutely rejected.

1. Borders are promised to be secured later, not first (Obama will dishonor this like "spending cuts after tax increases")

2. Obama and Napolitano will simply disregard the law and do what they want anyways

Pretty cut and dry -- reject the gang of 8 (especially Rubio for being naive). Obama and his lawless minions can't be trusted with anything important. He can't be trusted and earned this all by himself with his own actions.

One point, that is that a criminal or a terrorist is not one until they actually commit a crime or act of terror. Conspiring to commit such an act is a crime, but seldom are conspiracies found, disrupted, and prosecuted.

Early on in the War On Terror (the Bush years...) we heard reports that al-Qaeda would send cells into the USA to get established and organized and plan their dirty work. About half the time the people they sent here would decide they like the USA and blend in to society.
It seems these two brothers were part of a family, came here as refugees, were doing well, and had blended in to our society. Then they commit this heinous act.

So to answer the question in the OP, we simply don't know and cannot know how many terrorists could be living here, underground, planning their first act of terror.
Maybe we should continue to be nice to all foreigners in hopes that they will blend in and become true Americans, as so many generations of immigrants have before them.
Or maybe we should continue to try to ferret out those of questionable motives, infiltrate any cells we can identify, and make life tough for them if they continue to stay in our country.

Or maybe we should just kick out all foreigners, or at least all foreigners from countries that have a history of producing terrorists among their people, in their home countries or abroad.

What a choice.

Or we can continue to be vigilant, practice great security in transportation and at public events and places, and use awesome police work to track down those who do commit acts of terror.

We have no clue of the thousands of World Nihilists who hate us and we openly allow them to come here as "students" (so they can use our schools and hate us closer)?

We let foreign students in, give them an ID, and many vanish into our nation, no idea where they went. It is a significantly abused system and Liberals pay zero attention (these are their future voters you know!)

And they now want to make this porous easy entry system easier?

Can we squash Liberals Swiss cheese open borders ideology once an for all?
