Orlando Attack Reality Check: Next Time The Terrorists May Choose To Shoot Up A Church Or A School

Islamic terror can strike anywhere. On Sunday, it was a gay nightclub in Orlando called Pulse, but next time it might be a church or a school. In fact, it might be your church or your school. As you will see below, 29-year-old Omar Mateen actually scouted Walt Disney World as a potential target before finally settling on a gay nightclub. And not too long ago another Islamic terrorist had already made plans to shoot up a very large church in Detroit. It is high time that we all had a reality check when it comes to Islamic terror. The terrorists are not limiting themselves to just military and political targets. Their goal is to create fear and panic, and they want as much media attention on their acts of violence as possible. So if attacking a church or a school or a theme park will serve their purposes, then that is exactly what they are going to do.

The Director of the FBI says that Omar Mateen had “links to al-Qaida, Hezbollah, and the Islamic State“, and ISIS has proudly taken responsibility for this attack

The ISIS-affiliated news agency Amaq News broadcast a claim of responsibility from ISIS for a shooting rampage at a gay nightclub in Orlando that left 50 people dead over the weekend.

The agency said the shooting was the work of an “ISIS fighter,” multiple media outlets have reported.

But we aren’t just fighting ISIS. According to Wikipedia, there have been hundreds of Islamic terror attacks worldwide so far in 2016, and only a small percentage of them have been conducted by ISIS.

Even if ISIS were totally destroyed tomorrow, the threat of Islamic terror would remain.

There are some people out there that are downplaying the significance of this attack because of the target. But the truth is that Mateen almost selected Walt Disney World as the target. The following comes from People Magazine

The gunman behind the Orlando nightclub shootings, the deadliest mass shooting in American history, recently scouted Walt Disney World as a potential target, a federal law enforcement source tells PEOPLE.

Omar Mateen and his wife, Noor Zahi Salman, visited Walt Disney World in April, the source says. Salman told federal authorities on Sunday that her husband had more recently been “scouting Downtown Disney and Pulse [nightclub] for attacks.”

Unlike the four Disney World theme parks, Downtown Disney, which was recently renamed Disney Springs, doesn’t have security and bag check before entry.

Could you imagine the carnage that kind of attack would have created?

Personally, I don’t even want to think about it.

And as I mentioned above, not too long ago another Islamic radical had actually planned to shoot up a very large church in the heart of Detroit. 21-year-old Khalil Abu-Rayyan of Dearborn Heights, Michigan actually admitted to authorities that he had purchased a gun and had intended to take it into a church that can seat up to 6,000 people on a Sunday morning and start shooting.

Abu-Rayyan also admitted to authorities that since he could not do his jihad in the Middle East, that he intended to “do my jihad over here”. The following is an excerpt from a news report about this potential attack that was thwarted…

I tried to shoot up a church one day,” Abu-Rayyan is quoted as saying in court records. “I don’t know the name of it, but it’s close to my job. It’s one of the biggest ones in Detroit. Ya, I had it planned out. I bought a bunch of bullets. I practiced a lot with it. I practiced reloading and unloading. But my dad searched my car one day, and he found everything. He found the gun and the bullets and a mask I was going to wear.

Investigators didn’t name the church Abu-Rayyan allegedly eyed, but claim the property covers about two blocks less than half a mile from his work and can accommodate up to 6,000 members. He allegedly purchased a gun and told an undercover FBI employee that attacking a church would be “easy.”

“A lot of people go there. Plus people are not allowed to carry guns in church,” the affidavit quotes him as saying. “Plus it would make the news. Everybody would’ve heard. Honestly I regret not doing it. (If I) can’t go do jihad at the Middle East, I would do my jihad over here.

These kinds of radicals are running around all over America, and over time the threat that they pose is only going to get bigger and bigger.

In fact, Mike Adams is reporting that the FBI is dealing with “over 900 ISIS terror threat leads in the United States” right at this moment…

The FBI is currently investigating over 900 ISIS terror threat leads in the United States, covering all 50 states. Yet the Obama administration has systematically shut down federal prosecutions of such groups and silenced whistleblowers who tried to warn that all this was coming.

And we do know that ISIS recently released a “kill list” of American citizens, and 8 people on that “kill list” just happen to be from Orlando, Florida

An ISIS kill list released online Monday includes 8 residents from Orlando, Florida – the site of Sunday morning’s horrific terror attack that took the lives of more than 50 people.

The list, obtained and analyzed by Infowars, mentions what appears to be the names, addresses and emails of 8 females from the Orlando area.

Whether any of the Orlando residents listed were among the dead or injured is unknown at this time.

When are we going to start taking the threat of Islamic terror more seriously?

How many Americans have to die before we wake up?

Incredibly, Barack Obama refused to link radical Islam to the attack in Orlando during his speech to the nation in the aftermath of the shootings. The following comes from Leo Hohmann

President Obama refused to tie the bloody attack on a gay nightclub Sunday to Islamic terror and said “no definitive judgement” had been made on the motive.

At least 50 people are dead and 53 wounded following an attack on the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, in which the shooter shouted, “Allahu Akbar!”

It was the worst act of terror on U.S. soil since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

But Obama made no mention of “Islam,” “Muslim” or “Islamic terror” in his televised address to the nation.

Talk about being in a state of denial.

We live at a time when humanity’s ability to destroy is far greater than humanity’s ability to protect, and the ideology that is fueling this wave of terror is growing in almost every country on the entire planet.

Given enough time, it is inevitable that Islamic terrorists will start hitting schools, churches, shopping malls and sporting events inside the United States.

And eventually, they will get their hands on chemical, biological and potentially even nuclear weapons.

So what we have seen so far is just the tip of the iceberg. Meanwhile, many of our top politicians steadfastly refuse to use the phrase “Islamic terror” because it might potentially offend someone.

I don’t know about you, but I know a losing hand when I see one. The nightmare of Islamic terror has been unleashed in this nation, and the things that we are going to see in the years ahead are going to be absolutely unthinkable.

  1. I heard a man talking yesterday about this subject on a financial program I like to listen to on the net. His ramblings included the notion that perhaps it’s time the families of terrorists to start enjoying some consequences for their relationship’s terror. Sound harsh? Maybe, but it has been a useful deterrent in barbaric societies for thousands of years. The idea being if they can spawn such evil one time, who’s to say they can’t do it again. Fight the barbarians with barbarian tactics, fire with fire.

  2. Yet we have a democrat candidate and the President of this country trying to call Donald Trump Un-American for his comments on Islam and terror. For his platform of deporting Muslims.
    And this man is not alone. Prominent Republicans are also separating themselves from this candidate who has for all intents and purposes won the Republican Nomination. The speeches from the Democrat and the President are almost identical word for word!
    Paul Ryan thinks he should be sued. Yet where is Paul Ryan at with an existing President that should be sued?
    The party Trump won does not support him. Even though there is a clear message of the majority of voters that do support him.
    He claims the system is rigged against him and right now I am beginning to believe he is right.
    If the man does get elected President what then?
    The circumstances of this election will make or break the party known as Republicans from now on.
    I believe it will be settled in the Electorial College. Unfortunately at this time Hillary may win simply because the Democrats rule the Electorial College in this particular election.
    More likely to happen is she will be disqualified by the court system ruling on her illegal laptop and its breech of security. The law she has disobeyed is one she actually voted for while in the Congress.
    Which means the Democrat candidate by default is Bernie Sanders.
    Which also means he is your next President instead of Donald Trump.
    Economically this means a depression. Bernie Sanders is promoting a rob the rich platform and an increase in taxes.
    He is an unknown by the storms of politics may just be put in as President.
    What everyone is missing is the Vice Presidential Candidates from both parties.
    Who will they be and how do they differ from the people running for election?
    Because it is not out of reasonable circumstances that one of them may become President in the near future. They will be one heartbeat away from being in charge.
    I believe we have a sixth column in this country that kills off people if and when they go against the power base of the people controlling things. The Powers That Be people.
    The evidence is clearly in the history of the last 40 to 70 years.
    It is not necessarily about killing people. It can also be about destroying political careers.
    Or a near attempt at killing either a candidate or established person in the job.
    The Kennedys come to mind. Doctor Martin Luther King. Ronald Reagan and the near attempt on his life and the VIce sitting in waiting. All of which either aim a nut or they have ties to government of one sort or another like the intelligence community.
    The key being a person in the shadows making sure the job is done.
    I hope I am wrong. Because if and when Donald Trump is elected President of this country there are going to be a large number of people in key positions that are very afraid of what he might do.
    Same goes for people on the other side.
    Donald may choose a Vice from the opposition party which may be the first time that has ever happened in our history.
    Only time will tell who his successor will be if he appoints a Vice in the next 90-120 or so days.
    Possibly it is Christy.
    Or he may reach across party lines all together.
    I have an imagination and the current circumstances cause it to work overtime.
    If and when this country experiences massive numbers of terrorists in the next month or two then Trump is your next President period.
    Might point that out to ISIS.
    The best chance they have of electing a Hiliary is for the next couple of months or so to be quiet.
    This nut that killed 49 people did no favors to our enemies.

  3. Ironically you said they may shoot up a church or a school; these type of soft targets were already hit and they weren’t by islamic terrorists. The problem with putting it in that kind of box is that in the past these types of incidents have happened. Matter of fact, the other kid thinking of shooting up a church was thwarted by a good father figure, however, the other kid who shot up a SC church got away with it basically, he’s probably going to walk, but unfortunately this incident happened. We are living in a dangerous world, and anybody is suspect; radical islamists, neo Nazis and white nationalists, and crazies with chemical imbalances in their heads. Hate to put it that way, Republicans hate references to Dylan Roof and his ilk because these people share their political affiliations but its true. If what Falwell said is true that if Trump gets elected every terrorist will kneel in awe of his awesome whiteness and stop doing what they do, well, hey, whatever works. But will the mentally sick stop as well, so there will not be another Newtown?
