Herewith a miscellany of mostly-recent news items, possibly of interest to our readers and certainly relevant to our site's purpose.
Rod Dreher has excerpts from the Muslim Brotherhood's 1991 plan, recently put in evidence in the HLF trial, for taking over the United States by gradual means. I'm no Crunchy Con, but that just makes me all the more pleased to see Rod publicizing this stuff. It is perhaps worth pointing out that the Muslim Brotherhood, dedicated to "dying in the cause of Allah" and "the way of jihad" was founded in 1928. I'll let y'all think about the relevance of this fact to some of the rationales given for Muslim rage, jihadist activities, and so forth.
In other news, Houssein Zorkot, a medical student in Dearbornistan who is a big-time Hezbollah supporter was arrested for wandering about in a public park with a loaded AK-47. A group of people in the park called 9-11 when they heard what they believed to be the sound of his cocking the gun. Screen caps from his web site show one picture with the caption "The Start of my Personal Jihad (in the US)." The Hezbollah supporters in the Dearborn area also send death threats to columnist Debbie Schlussel. (Language alert on the links. Schlussel quotes the e-mails she has received.) This is a "take notes" moment for those who believe that Hezbollah is not our problem.
And in the "tiny minority of extremists" department, we have the report from Germany that authorities there are having a dickens of a time getting tips from the Muslim community about radicals and plotters in their midst. Somehow, I doubt they're getting much help there rounding up remaining suspects in (just) the latest European bomb plot.
Finally for this brief list we have the news from Brussels, where police applied...interesting tactics in arresting peaceful marchers on 9-11 against the Islamicization of Europe. Welcome to the 21st Century in the European Union.
My thanks to Jihad Watch for existing. (And there's a lot more information where these stories came from.) I would have had to have lots of hat tips for this one if I hadn't simply linked to stories through JW, where I first found most of them, though I actually saw the one about the police brutality in Belgium first on TROP. Here's hopin' Robert Spencer packs heat for self-defense, and the editor of TROP as well.
