The left-wing media is rushing to ensure the public that the beheading murder of a woman in Moore, Oklahoma this week was simply workplace violence and had nothing to do with terrorism. Watch MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry.
And she is a professor at Wake Forest University!! On second thought, strike those exclamation marks.
Part of the "logic" being used here is that the accused killer Alton Nolan has no known connection to Al Qaeda, ISIS, or any other known terrorist organization. In addition, he was angry because he had just been fired. Aside from the two women who were stabbed by Alton, nobody in Moore has any reason to fear anything.
This is why they are wrong.
Nolen, who has a criminal record, had recently converted to Islam and was reportedly trying to convert people in his workplace to Islam. Apparently, he was unsuccessful in converting any of the "unbelievers". That alone may not mean much, but when you discover his Facebook writings that include this, it gets interesting.
So here is my theory: We know that Al Qaeda and ISIS have called for Muslims in the US to conduct strikes within the US. Certainly the vast majority of American Muslims have no intention of following those directives. But we do have a fear that there are some who will listen. We also have a concern about returning ISIS fighters since thousands of those fighters are carrying Western passports. It is my opinion that Nolen followed the events in Syria and Iraq, listened to the directives, and decided to act on them. He had tried to convince the "unbelievers" but had failed. His firing was merely the trigger. It was time to follow Sura 8 verse 12, and who better to attack than those who not only had fired him but rebuffed his attempts to be converted. It was the perfect storm. Alton Nolen is the classic lone wolf attacker, such as we have already seen in Britain. The fact that he decapitated a woman makes it pretty clear that his religious beliefs played a major role in this murder.
Again I caution: We should not make a leap into believing that the vast majority of Muslims in the US are contemplating anything like what Nolen did. They are not and I assume the vast majority of American Muslims are repulsed at the murder. I constantly hope that nobody gets it in their head to carry out acts of "retaliation" against innocent Muslims.
Having said all that, we cannot ignore the danger and continue to tell the public that these horrific incidents are something else like workplace violence. I am afraid that we are going to see more murders of this type not only in the US, but in the West in general. The public needs to be informed for their own safety.

My friends at the AMCHA Initiative have just come out with the results of a 3-year-study of the UCLA Center for Near East Studies, which shows a clear bias against Israel-a bias that often spills into anti-Semitism.
Just this week, AMCHA's Professor Tammi Rossman-Benjamin of UC Santa Cruz and Leila Beckwith, Professor Emeritus at UCLA, presented these findings at the UC Regents meeting. It should also be noted that in the past year both UC President Janet Napolitano and UCLA Chancellor Gene Block have issued statements in criticism of the activities of Students for Justice in Palestine (UCLA) for their anti-Semitic acts on campus, which included trying to keep pro-Israel Jewish students out of student government and to stop a pro-Israel Jewish student from being appointed as student regent (notwithstanding the fact that an anti-Israel Muslim student has been serving as student regent).
The bias that permeates most-if not all- university Middle East studies departments is obvious for all to see. They are bastions of anti-Israel, anti-US, and anti-West propaganda being spewed forth in most cases by leftists and people who came here from hell-hole countries dedicated to the destruction of the Jewish state. This is not even close to scholarship; rather it is more akin to the rabid partisanship to be found at an Oakland Raiders football game. Clearly our students deserve better.
That these departments receive government funding (to go along with their funding from Saudi Arabia) is an outrage.

Hat tip The Mike Report and Paul Schnee
Much like Orange County, with the feckless Jewish Federation, Hillel, and Anti-Defamation League, Los Angeles and Seattle have big time problems with many of their leaders and organizations, many of whom are anti-Israel.
Paul Schnee, who I had the pleasure of meeting at a recent pro-Israel rally in Los Angeles, has sent me an article in the Jewish Journal on one of the leading figures in Los Angeles, Jonathan Jacoby, who is leaving his position at the LA Jewish Federation to return to the New Israel Fund, of which he is a founding member.
So who is this organization known as the New Israel Fund? It seems they are big financial supporters of several groups dedicated to Israel's destruction. Here are some links provided to me by Mr. Schnee.
I think we may assume that the New Israel Fund is hardly pro-Israel.
Meanwhile, the Seattle-based blog, The Mike Report, has a troubling sketch of one of Seattle's leading Jewish activists, Ben Murane and the organization he represents, the aforementioned New Israel Fund.
One of the biggest stereotypes of the US Jewish community is that it is monolithic and united in its support of Israel. That is not true. While each individual American Jew has the right to form his or her own opinion of Israel, it would be nice if the Jewish community was fully aware of which organizations and so-called leaders are for or against Israel. It is fundamentally dishonest for certain Jewish organizations to portray themselves as pro-Israel while they fund and assist other organizations devoted to Israel's destruction.
