Ali Muhammad Brown has confessed to murdering four innocent Americans in the name of Islam and jihad. By Brown’s own account, the murders were an act of vengeance for Muslim deaths in “Iraq, Syria, [and] Afghanistan… All these lives are taken every single day by America, by this government. So a life for a life.”
The link and quote above are from a column written by Michelle Malkin in August. Malkin is one of the few journalists who connected the Ali Muhammad Brown dots weeks ago. The story is finally getting some of the attention it deserves, thanks to Malkin and New York radio host Todd Pettengill, who used more than eight minutes of his non-news talk show to call attention to Brown’s domestic jihad:
“It was in fact an act of jihad, perpetrated by a fellow American who sympathized more with those who want to annihilate us than with his own country and its people,” [Pettengrill] said.
“What I’m suggesting should happen is that this should be talked about and written about, and the American people should know.”
Pettengil also echoed the frustrations of Tevlin’s parents over the initial characterization by the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office that the teenager was “targeted” before being gunned down in a West Orange intersection on June 25.
Tevlin is Brendan Tevlin, a 19-year-old shot to death in New Jersey on June 25. Brown has confessed to the murder. As Malkin points out, Brown’s self-described jihad wasn’t a local issue — it was a coast to coast killing spree that began in April and finally ended with his apprehension in July:
His homicidal Islamic terror spree took him from coast to coast. The 29-year-old career thug admitted to killing Leroy Henderson in Seattle in April; Ahmed Said and Dwone Anderson-Young in Seattle on June 1; and college student Brendan Tevlin, 19, in Essex County, New Jersey, on June 25. Tevlin was gunned down in his family Jeep on his way home from a friend’s house. Ballistics and other evidence linked all the victims to Muhammad Brown. Police apprehended him last month hiding in an encampment near the Watchung Mountains of West Orange, New Jersey.
As Pettengill points out, Tevlin was murdered simply for being an American. According to the Daily News, the police claim the motive was robbery. The confessed killer disagrees. In police interviews and court documents, Brown described his murders as a “just kill… [a] man sees evil, then he must take action against that evil.”
In 2004, Brown was arrested for what the police believed was a massive bank fraud scheme meant to finance terror overseas. Brown would have been 19 at the time. Due to lack of evidence, he was released.
If Brown were a Tea Partier, does anyone doubt this killing spree would have been the biggest news in the country?Moreover, if had been the biggest story in the country, there’s a good chance the national notoriety could have stopped this home grown jihadist before he got to Brendan Tevlin.
Other than weapons, the most powerful tool the jihadists have on their side is the media’s suicidal political correctness.
