GARLAND. Texas Its become a familiar refrain in the aftermath of a terrorist attack or the discovery of a jihadist cell. Elton Simpson, 31, was described by someone who knew him as a very kind religious man who didnt seem to be a threat to anybody.
Yet Simpson, a convert to Islam, and his roommate, Nadir Soofi, armed with assault rifles and wearing body armor, intended to enter the Curtis Culwell Center northeast of Dallas on Sunday night and slaughter some 200 people inside attending the Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest, including this reporter, according to Garland Police Chief Joe Harn, who spoke to media Monday.
A police officer shot Simpson and Soofi on the street with his pistol after they jumped out of their car and began firing, and SWAT officers also opened fire, killing both men. A school district police officer, Bruce Joiner, was hit in the ankle but was released from the hospital Sunday night.
We were able to stop those men before they were able to penetrate the area and attempt to shoot anyone else, said Harn, who helped lead a security operation that included a SWAT team, barricades, a police tower and metal detectors at the entrance of the building.
The FBI Sunday night searched the north Phoenix home of Simpson, who was the subject of a 2010 terrorist investigation, skirted a no-fly list and had been well known to the bureau since 2007...

To follow Islam one has to suspend all rational faculties and live in a constant state of cognitive dissonance. You must believe that a desert pirate, brigand, rapist, pedophile, murderer, marauder, thief, and demon possessed liar was the "perfect man" that every Muslim should aspire to be. You must also believe that God is a singular entity, who is unknowable, yet demands the death of his followers in Jihad in order to receive 72 perpetual virgins in paradise. You must believe that the sun settles into a muddy bog every evening and that Satan actually lives in your nose (especially when you sneeze).
Scientists who study cognitive dissonance say it is the mental stress or discomfort experienced by an individual who holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values at the same time, or is confronted by new information that conflicts with existing beliefs. When their irrational beliefs are confronted or exposed, these people can show violent tendencies.
Men were made to worship God. Men were made to use logic and reason to arrive at truth. When men will not worship God, they must worship something else. Perhaps that is why Islam is gaining ground in the United States?
John 5:43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
Guess Texas had enough of his kindness the other night, huh.
Very fitting passages you have been sharing. just read your previous thread. Thank you
The MSM is a big joke
SHAMEFUL ATTACKS BY THE DHIMMIT MEDIA TO PAMELA GELLER AND GERT WILDERS
The American Dhimmitude media, cowed by Islamic violence, has accepted total submission to the mandates of the Islamic terrorists.
Pamela Geller, Gert Wilders, and Bosch Fawstin (the winner of the contest) are real heroes that have not accepted to be intimidated by Islamic terrorists. It is denigrating for the American media to see their pundits attacking the freedom of expression of those opposed to the Islamization of U.S.
On January 17,2015 and in the same public school center, there was a Stand with the Prophet rally by Muslims, a provocative pro-Shariah law event, by supporters of Al-Qaida and Isis organized by one of the terrorists implicated in the bombing of the garage of the NY World Trade Center in 1993.
I wonder if those who try to blame the organizers of the First Annual Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest, for the Muslim terrorist attack would have justified if a patriotic American had irrupted in the Muslim rally on January and made a massacre of Islamic terrorists. After all, Americans are profoundly offended by their provocation and the abuse of our freedoms by those who made the Muslim rally in support of the savages that decapitate, crucify and burned Christians alive.
The Dhimmitude media, scared by Islamic violence, auto-censors itself and tries to justify the terrorist attack in Texas because the Mohamed cartoons contest offended the sensibility of Islamic terrorists.
On January 2015, radical Islamists desecrated the holy soil of Texas. Do not mess with Texas!!!

Iranian Commander: We Won’t Rest Until US is an Islamic Republic
In Switzerland everybody is drafted and they keep their arms in home in case they need to defend their country. It is imperative that all American arm themselves, the jihadists are already in and can attack any time our churches, malls, theaters, slaughtering innocents men women and children as they are massacring Christians in Africa and the Middle East.
well hes very peaceful now....at least physically
Yes, you are correct!
With liberals’ support of this it is like the enemy of their enemy is their friend. They don’t like these chaps because they are so enamored of liberal pet causes. But because they hate Christians.
I’m sure kind can be used to describe any number of Nazis, Romans, and WWII Japanese with regard to treatment of family and friends,
But when the enemy is demonized on a regular basis and you buy into it, well, all heck breaks loose.
Notice belief in Jesus don’t really leave any of the paths to violent hatred open because forgiveness and understanding is found at every turn in his preaching. And I STILL have a hard time living the life. Imagine if you were taught the opposite. .
They’re like the world, only worse.
“...loved his mother...kind to children & animals...trying to get his life together...aspiring rap artist...blah, blah, blah.”
Yes, I know. It is only Christ in us every day that keeps us in His grip. I cannot image growing up under Islamism or NAZIism.
I think Liberals actually love Islam just like Hitler. It espouses everything that they hold dear. It codifies all of their perversions and desire for iron fist control.
just read from the script :) sad thing is my mom would have said the same thing 30 yeas ago when I was a punk. Grew out of it.
Could be, that even the “kindness” goes by the boards once the use of it as a stalking horse is past.
C. S. Lewis pointed out that trying to reduce all virtue to kindness creates a cruel society.
Hitler was a spiritual power freak.
Baby rattlesnakes don’t seem all that bad, either.
The “rap artist” would spell more trouble.
How much rap is paeans to baseball, hot dogs, and apple pie (if not also Chevrolet)? And how much is paeans to common, coarse street hatred?
had to look the word up. Always learning on FREEP.
