“Islamophobia?” Hoax Bomb Set-up Gives Obama Another Chance to Attack Law Enforcement

Islamophobia, my eye. I smell set up.

There he goes again. Barack Hussein Obama has used the incident involving a 14-year old Muslim kid setting off a bomb scare with his homemade “clock” to side against law enforcement. As usual, he’s on the wrong side. Law enforcement was absolutely correct to take action. Aren’t we incessantly told that we have to be constantly on the look out for threats and if we “see something, say something?” Post-Columbine and Sandy Hook, aren’t we supposed to be concerned about violence at schools?

I agree with Pam Gellar. This whole thing looks like another setup. Shades of the dead Syria child on the beach. The backstory is very different from the Official Story. Ms. Gellar wisely writes:

A Muslim teen bought a strange ticking device to his high school that set off alarms and fear. The student was detained for having what resembled a bomb. Officers said the clock and wires inside his Vaultz pencil case looked like a hoax bomb to them. When questioned about the device was, the student, Ahmed Mohamed, wouldn’t answer. Now terror-tied Islamic groups like Hamas-CAIR, their media lapdogs and even President Obama are waging jihad against the school.

This whole thing smells like a set-up. With ISIS in America, and young moderate Muslims fleeing to Syria to join the terror group, the Irving school’s response was rational and reasonable. I run news stories on a weekly basis of American Muslim teens arrested for trying to join ISIS. Just this week, a Philly Muslim teen was arrested for a plot to assassinate the Pope on his US visit.

Every day we are warned of new terror threats, increased threat levels. But trying to protect schoolchildren is “islamophobic.” And President Obama agrees, of course. Yes, he has weighed in.

WFAA: According to Irving police, Ahmed’s case contained a digital clock that the student had taken apart and rearranged. Police said the student had the briefcase in his English class, where he plugged it into an electrical outlet and it started to make noise.

Ahmed told WFAA that his English teacher confiscated his case. A few hours later, the student said the principal and school resource officer pulled him out of class and questioned the high school freshman.

Officers said Ahmed was being “passive aggressive” in his answers to their questions, and didn’t have a “reasonable answer” as to what he was doing with the case.

Investigators said the student told them that it was just a clock that he was messing around with.

“We attempted to question the juvenile about what it was and he would simply only say it was a clock. He didn’t offer any explanation as to what it was for, why he created this device, why he brought it to school,” said James McLellan, Irving Police.

Like I said. It smells like a set-up. Why wasn’t Ahmed forthcoming when questioned?

And now, so predictably, enter stage left the front group CAIR to “Stand with Ahmed,” and site America’s hideous “Islamophobia,” another made up word like “homophobia,” designed to suggest that anyone who expresses disagreement with a particular political agenda is suffering from some sort of mental disorder. Wrong. Fearing people who state on a daily basis that they want to kill you is a sign of mental clarity. Low-information leftists like Mark Zuckerberg have also chimed in.

Oh, and here’s a fun fact. Ahmed’s father is a proud “defender of the Holy Quran,” who participated as “defense counsel” when Koran-torching pastor Rev. Terry Jones had some sort of bizarre mock trial. From the Dallas Observer:

When Florida pastor Terry Jones finally made good on the threat he’d been toying with in the press for months, to burn a Quran in his church, it set off days of deadly protests in Afghanistan. And while U.S. military officials and lawmakers work to undo the damage he caused, and President Obama condemns the book-burning, Jones is seeking retribution. His church in Gainesville, Florida, denies responsibility for the riots.

There is a Dallas man involved in all of this: Sheik Mohamed Elhassan, who played defense attorney in Jones’s mock trial and failed to sway the “court” at the Dove World Outreach Center. He’s the man referred to in most news reports simply as “a Dallas imam.” And he’s not shying away from the controversy. As a matter of fact, he says, he is looking for a local church where he can mount an appeal.

Reached by phone this afternoon, Elhassan told Unfair Park that while he doesn’t feel Jones gave him enough time to make his case, he’s still “proud to be a defender of the Holy Quran.”

Yes, he calls himself “Sheik.”

Meanwhile, at last night’s edition of the Donald Trump Show, this one at a New Hampshire townhall, the first questioner said that America’s biggest problem is Muslims and said that Barack Obama is not an American. The Left is in up in arms because Trump didn’t go full McCain and correct the questioner, as if. As if that’s his obligation.

As Ms. Gellar has often noted, given Obama’s current behavior, not to mention his childhood in Indonesia where he attended a Muslim school and had a Muslim step-father, is it any wonder so many people think he’s a Muslim? On the Today Show this morning, Chris Christie rebuked Trump for not scolding the questioner, saying “”I wouldn’t have permitted that,” Christie responded when asked how he would have handled the same situation. “I would correct him. I’d say that the president’s a Christian and he was born in this country. Those two things are self-evident.”

Really, Governor? It’s self-evident that Obama is a Christian? Why? Because he never joined a church in Washington, D.C.? Because he only joined Rev. Wright’s Church of the Black Panther because it was going to be good for his gig as a street agitator in the black community? Because he said the Islamic call to prayer was one of the most beautiful sounds on earth?

This sort of statement by Gov. Christie explains what I said in my initial reaction to Wednesday’s debate; specifically, that he did well in that forum, but that his position in polls, and in the minds of serious people, won’t change because it’s one thing to sound good on TV, and it’s another thing to be on the right side of issues.

The right side of this issue is to resist the Islamization of our country, and to remain vigilant.
