In the past year, exposure of significant jihadist recruitment inside the United States has left Americans worried that "homegrown terrorism" may become a serious threat. Eight years after the atrocities of September 11, 2001, media and government appear stunned by the upsurge of jihad incidents in the United States, including two lethal attacks. The Fort Hood massacre on November 5, for which an Army psychiatrist, Nidal Hasan, has been charged with 13 deaths, has been followed by two more cases.
On December 9, five college-age Muslims from northern Virginia were arrested in Pakistan. They were allegedly headed for terror training camps, and were detained along with Khalid Chaudhry, father of the apparent leader of the younger enthusiasts, Umer Farooq Chaudhry.
Then, on December 14, a filing by federal prosecutors charged that David Coleman Headley, a Pakistani-American businessman from Chicago whose birth name is Daood Gilani, was complicit in the terror assault that killed nearly 170 people in Bombay last year. Headley and an associate, Tahawwur Rana, had been arrested in October, accused of conspiring to blow up Jyllands-Posten, the Danish newspaper that published the "Muhammad cartoons" in 2005.
A connection between the arrests in Pakistan and the Chicago investigation may be demonstrated. But these episodes are just part of a daunting list over the past year. Of almost 30 Islamist terror schemes uncovered on U.S. soil since 9/11, 10 came in 2009.
Why has jihadism in this country grown so much that a group of students might go to Pakistan intending war against the U.S.-led forces in Afghanistan? The most convincing explanation links the demographics of American Islam to the shift of the main terror zone from Iraq to South Asia.
According to CAIR itself, the plurality of Muslims attending mosque services in America are South Asian

She, Obama, and his entire administration are a JOKE that needs to be deported to Cuba, or some other God-forsaken Socialist/Communist turd-world dictatorship.
The U.S. should have stopped it 30 years ago after the fall of Iran to Kohmeini who vowed to destroy the great Satan (U.S.). The majoirty of funding of terrorism comes from Iran; that’s where a statement should be made. As for muslims in general, everywhere they exist there is a problem with the host country, pay attention and wake up America.
Something had better be done about the Black muslims who are recruiting in jails and prisons all over America. Psychopathic criminals are prime tagets to be converted into jihadists.
America had also better get past this crap about profiling. Political correctness killed those 13 people at Fort Hood. Sniveling about profiling makes it unnecessarily difficult to examine potential terrorists. Personally, I would much rather see some people upset because of profiling than people being murdered by some jihadist monsters.
It is the Paki influence that is causing so much trouble in Britain. The Pakis are NOT our friends, and expecting them to fight the Taliban and al-Queda and like-minded muzz is worse than wishful thinking: it is delusional. The ONLY way the Pakis would fight those groups would be in some sort of internecine conflict for internal power, but in the end the Pakis and those foes are of the same mindset.
Not enough terrorists here, so we must import them to giver our great leader another crisis he can pull us out of.
“The U.S. should stop the immigration of Muslims.”
That makes too much sense, so we’ll never do it.
All Muslims should be exported immediately to the land of their choice.
If they refuse to make a choice, drop them in the ocean.
Stephen Schwartz is Sufi Muslim.
It can and DOES.
Well, you can't drop them into the ocean if you don't know who they are.
