Slippery Slope and Watershed moments in American Politics on Muslim Terrorism

Slippery Slope or Watershed Moments on Muslim Refugees coming to America


After reading my article on infiltration and radicalization, one has to admit, there is a watershed moment on ISIS coming to America via the refugee programs proposed by our president. Gaining access to such travel visas should allow more terrorists to enter the country and since this political football airs on the slippery slope of American compassion and kindness towards these victims of war, there are dangers lurking in such programs which would allow America to be invaded by the enemy.

Neither the Homeland Security nor all the president’s men can deny the chance or risk of terrorists using American efforts to welcome and house thousands of Syrian homeless refugees into our country. The House Homeland Security Committee Chairman, Michael McCaul said,  "I can reveal today that the United States government has information to indicate that individuals tied to terrorist groups in Syria have already attempted to gain access to our country through the U.S. refugee program,"

He added, “That was very courageous for them to come forward with this to tell me about this personally given the political debate on the Hill with the Syrian refugee bill," McCaul stated in reference to a briefing he says he received from intelligence sources.

According to Representative McCaul own words, this “asserts that the threat from ISIS dwarfs previous Islamic terrorist attempts against America, saying the group is "now more dangerous than al Qaida ever was under Osama bin Laden. I believe the state of our homeland is increasingly not secure.”

"I believe 2015 will be seen as a watershed year in this long war — the year when our enemies gained an upper hand and when the spread of terror once again awoke the West." McCaul warned that the war has indeed come to America. From my standpoint and the viewpoint of many others, including law enforcement, the San Bernardino was not an isolated event or a lone wolf situation. There is both guidance and leadership in this inspiration to expire American citizens.  

Today, there are many small groups of terrorists on the offensive, working to deploy operatives or active shooters to all our communities and infiltrate essential government services that would allow them to commit acts of violence. This includes the manufacturing of explosives as well as gunfire into our innocent public areas such as malls, theaters etc. and create high peril for major sports events to be exposed to terrorism.

McCaul, said the FBI is investigating "nearly 1,000 homegrown terror cases" across the nation and that most can be traced to Islamic radicals - "Already, federal authorities have arrested over 70 ISIS supporters in our country," McCaul said.

ISIS-affiliated terrorists have been tied to 19 "terrorist plots or attacks” in our country. Like San Bernardino, these terrorist plans include mass shootings, mass murder and detonation of explosives in major cities and landmarks throughout the United States.

This refugee program, if approved by the mass numbers indicated, will be a cause for great concern as it serves to expose America to a virtual and real opportunity to assault our way of life and give many terrorists an open politically sanctioned portal for many of these violent plans to destroy our way of life and terrorize us day and night.
