The Department of Homeland Security has just confirmed our worst nightmare in record time, an act that would take weeks, months, or longer with the former administration. There’s no more tiptoeing around terrorist anymore with President Donald Trump in charge who does not and will not tolerate terrorism on our soil, especially at this special time of year. Jihadists hellbent on destroying this Christian holiday met their match today.
‘Tis the season for terror attacks as was promised in a deluge of threats and warnings from the Islamic State over the past few months. It was never a matter of if, but when, since Islamic jihadists would love nothing more than to rain hell on a Christian holiday. It’s an unfortunate reality we live in and now our worst nightmare is being realized in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania yesterday, December 23.
Sassy Liberty reported for Freedom Daily the horrifying events that unfolded when a gunman hellbent on killing as many police officers as possible yesterday was killed by his target short of achieving his goal:
A gunman hellbent on shooting cops and killing as many as possible in the process was killed in a shootout with police late Friday evening in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania wrecking havoc throughout the city. As a result, authorities have uncovered a sinister plot hatched by what appears to be a Muslim man to target as many police officers as possible.
51-year-old Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty was revealed as the man behind the shooting spree that launched several attacks against law enforcement. Despite his plans, only one Pennsylvania State Trooper was injured.
Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico held a press conference in the early hours of Friday morning and revealed there were three separate sites where El-Mofty deliberately and intentionally engaged police with the intent to kill as many law enforcement officers as possible. He began his shooting spree at approximately 4:10 p.m. EST when he opened fire on a Capitol Police car near the State Capitol building in Harrisburg.
Without hesitation, DHS wasn’t afraid to call a spade and spade and identified this attacker and his intentions for exactly what it was – terrorism. Despite being the target of attack, local authorities seem more concerned about protecting Islamic sensitivities and the terrorists, by not giving him such a title.
The Blaze reports:
The Department of Homeland Security has announced that they have determined that a string of shootings in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on Friday were a “terror attack,” and further that they highlight the need for immigration reform.
Acting DHS Press Secretary Tyler Houlton released a statement calling the incident a “terror attack,” according to CNN. The DHS’s statement further indicated that the incident illustrated the administration’s “concerns with extended family chain migration.” According to the statement, “Both chain migration and the diversity visa lottery program have been exploited by terrorists to attack our country.”
According to DHS, El-Mofty was a naturalized citizen who initially came to America on a “family-based immigrant visa.”
The statement did not indicate whether DHS believes that El-Mofty was either connected to or inspired by any international terrorist organization such as ISIS.
What are local authorities saying?
Local authorities have not indicated whether they believe this incident to be terrorism. Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marisco did indicate that it was clear that El-Mofty was targeting cops.
According to WGAL-TV, El-Mofty’s family stated that he had been estranged from them and living back in his home country of Egypt. His family reportedly did not even know that he was back in the Pennsylvania area until the incident.
This act of terror comes only 24-hours after authorities in Modesto, California arrested a man who had an active terror plot he was about to inflict on tourists in San Francisco for Christmas.
Everitt Aaron Jameson doesn’t sound like your typical radicalized Islamic terrorist because he’s not. He’s the Islamic State’s best kept secret and most powerful tool as he can easily assimilate into society and certain crowds. It was almost too late today before people realized that he wasn’t the proud and heroic American he once masqueraded as. Authorities have captured this terrorist and saved a city from a major terrorist attack right in time.
The Daily Mail reports:
A former Marine has been arrested for plotting a Christmas Day attack on San Francisco’s Pier 39.
The FBI announced on Friday that Everitt Aaron Jameson from Modesto, California, had been taken into custody.
They found a manifesto at his home which described his plan and pledged his allegiance to Islam.
For months, he had been speaking to an undercover FBI agent who he thought was a high-ranking member of a terror group.
Among their messages was his offer to use a truck from the tow truck company where he worked to further the ’cause’.
He also asked them for materials included a PVC pipe, ammunition, powder, nails and an assault rifle, they said.
Jameson’s plan was to set off explosives at the pier to ‘funnel’ crowds to a certain area where he could then hurt them further by presumably shooting them, according to the documents.
On Facebook, Jameson, opposed President Trump’s recent announcement that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel – a move which enraged millions of Muslims around the world.
Jameson, who refers to himself as a ‘slave of Allah’ online, said Jerusalem was Palestine’s capital instead.
In his correspondence with the agents, he called himself a ‘revert’ meaning he had returned to Islam after not believing.
On December 16, he allegedly met with an undercover FBI agent and proposed a bomb attack on the tourist destination.
“Jameson specifically named Pier 39 in San Francisco as a target location because he had been there before and knew that it was a heavily crowded area and that according to Jameson, no reconnaissance or site survey would be necessary. Jameson explained that he also desired to use explosives and described a plan in which explosives could ‘tunnel or funnel’ people into a location where Jameson could inflict casualties.”
“He replied that he could do it this week (the week of December 18-December 25). Jameson also stated that Christmas was ‘the perfect day’ to commit the attack,” the FBI’s arrest affidavit reads.
He was well prepared for the attack having consumed copious amounts of radical Islamic information combined with the skills he learned in the Marines. Rather than using this military training to protect America from the enemy, he became the enemy he was trained to fight. It’s been reported that he graduated from Marines training in 2009 when he was awarded the ‘sharp shooter’ title. However, he didn’t seem to ever make it to combat as he was discharged from the military for failing to disclose he had asthma. Was that all part of his plan to get training and insider information of our military operations to use against the U.S.?
