Jihadist warns ‘Allah will punish you’ in U.S. court
While standing in front of United States District Judge Dan Polster as he delivered him a 20-year prison sentence for threatening U.S. soldiers and their families in the name of ISIS, 24-year-old Terrence McNeil of Akron, Ohio, assured the federal judge that the punishment did not faze him because of his Islamic beliefs.
“Nothing you did today even matters,” McNeil insisted to Polster, according to Cleveland.com. “Jihad will continue until the day of judgment. And that’s a promise from Allah.”
Threatening a judge in court?
America’s religiously motivated home-grown terrorists are reportedly the greatest threat from within that the U.S. has ever seen.
“[T]he U.S. faces an enemy unlike any other, who defies conventional methods of deterrence, [and this] was illustrated Wednesday in a federal courtroom in Ohio,” WND reported.
The terrorist proceeded to issue his own warning of punishment to the judge … and to all infidels in America.
“It’s not going to change,” McNeil continued. “It’s not going to stop. Neither of them are. My commission of Allah is not going to stop. So this is meaningless. I’ll be rewarded for what I do. You’ll be punished for what you do. I’m fine with that. You’re fine with that.”
The jihadist then said that the god of Islam and his fellow Muslims will seek retribution on those who do not submit to Allah.
“So, we’ll wait for the punishment of Allah to afflict you – either by himself or through the hands of the Muslims – and then we’ll see – Inshallah,” McNeil concluded.
Polster followed up by expressing his confidence that he made the right decision.
“All right. Mr. McNeil, while I respect your opinion, I think you have confirmed the wisdom of my 20-year sentence,” the federal judge replied.
By the [Islamic] book
An expert on Islamic terrorism who has authored several books on the topic, Robert Spencer, cited the Muslim’s holy book to demonstrate how it incites believers of Islam to annihilate those who do not submit to Allah’s teachings.
“Fight them; Allah will punish them by your hands and will disgrace them and give you victory over them and satisfy the breasts of a believing people and remove the fury in the believers’ hearts,” Spencer quoted the Quran 9:14–15 on his Jihad Watch blog.
It was also demonstrated in the courtroom documents that McNeil’s thirst for American blood in the name of jihad was published for all to see on social media.
“I can’t wait for another 9/11, Boston bombing, or Sandy Hook!!!” the convicted terrorist exclaimed to his followers on social media, Jihad Watch‘s Spencer noted from a memo of the government’s sentencing.
In fact, former German Minister of Justice Christian Pfeiffer revealed – from his Jihad Watch study surveying 45,000 respondents’ on the influence of the Quran on its readers – that Islam is the only religion in the world that drives its followers to become more violent as they become more devout.
“Even when other social factors were taken into account, there remained a significant correlation between religiosity and readiness to use violence,” Pfeiffer noted from the study.
Contradicting the claims often made by mainstream media, Islamic terrorists have expressed time and time again that it is Islamic teaching – and not oppression – that inspires their murderous fight to annihilate their non-Muslim enemies.
“Not one of the subjects suggested directly or indirectly that being marginalized socially or economically pushed them onto such an extreme path,” researchers Lorne L. Dawson, Amarnath Amarasingam and Alexandra Bain of the University of British Columbia and the University of Waterloo were quoted in the Jihad Watch study. “[M]ore attention and significance should be given to the repeated affirmations of the positive benefits of being a jihadi.”
Muslim terrorist interviewees verified the researchers’ contention.
“[The] zeal for jihad always struck me when I would sit in my room and read Quran with English translation,” a jihadist stressed, according to the researchers … while another Islamic militant also agreed. “We are motivated by our religion – by our Quran and Sunnah – and we are not ashamed of that.”
Europe has its own problems …
The threat of jihad appears to be even more intense across the Atlantic, where nations such as Germany, France, the United Kingdom and many others that have regularly welcomed Muslim refugees – including those in Scandinavia – have serious national security issues due to immigration.
“A sinister list of 173 ISIS assassins poised to strike in Europe has been discovered in the terror group’s former stronghold of Mosul,” The Sun reported from the German daily, Die Welt. “The document was found in the ruins of the Iraqi city and includes names, photos and country of origin of the fanatics, according to German media.”
Thousand have fallen victim to Islamic immigration across Europe, with nations reporting the most lax immigration policies catching the brunt of the violence and carnage.
“Europe lost some 6,000 men and women to the ranks of Islamic State – nearly 1,000 of them from Germany,” The Sun’s Patrick Knox and Allan Hall reported from Berlin, Germany. “No one knows how many hard-hardened fanatics still remain in the embattled areas.”
