RELAX: CALIFORNIA MUSLIM WITH IEDSIN CAR HAS ‘NO TIES’ TO TERROR ORGS
Go back to sleep. Who doesn’t drive around with IEDs in the car?
If Saleh Ali hadn’t been pulled over by a traffic cop for having an expired vehicle registration, the consequences could have been explosive.
Lt. Adam Hawley of the Brea, California police department said: “During the traffic stop, the officer keyed in on a couple of suspicious items in the car he believed to be an explosive device. He detained the driver out of an abundance of caution, locked down a little bit of the area and called out sheriff’s bomb squad deputies.”
The bomb squad destroyed the IEDs, and Ali is being held at the Orange County Jail on $500,000 bail. According to the Orange County Register, he has been “charged with one count of transporting a destructive device and two counts of possessing a destructive device.”
But there is no need for anyone to be concerned. Hawley added: “At this point, we don’t have any evidence to support that he was part of any terrorist organization.”
Hawley did not address the possibility that Ali might have been looking for an opportunity to act upon the call that the Islamic State (ISIS) issued in September 2014:
So O muwahhid, do not let this battle pass you by wherever you may be. You must strike the soldiers, patrons, and troops of the tawaghit. Strike their police, security, and intelligence members, as well as their treacherous agents. Destroy their beds. Embitter their lives for them and busy them with themselves. If you can kill a disbelieving American or European — especially the spiteful and filthy French — or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be….If you are not able to find an IED or a bullet, then single out the disbelieving American, Frenchman, or any of their allies. Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him….
It is an ongoing source of frustration for people who are informed about the jihad threat that authorities in the West routinely claim that random acts of violence committed by Muslims are not actually incidences of terrorism at all. In claiming this, authorities are frequently motivated by a desire to minimize the terror threat in their own countries, particularly when those authorities are responsible for increasing that threat by pursuing reckless and irresponsible policies of mass Muslim migration.
