WARNING: Some may find the content of this article very disturbing.
As 9/11 approaches, tensions always rise. This year however, the tensions are even higher than in previous years. With the emergence of ISIS and growing Jihadist movements in nations like Somalia, Nigeria and Libya, the fear that there will be attempts on western interests and cities has increased significantly.
The big question always is, how do you distinguish between credible threats and sensationalist theories? At what point does it become too much. Yes we all need to be vigilant, but we also need to be careful that we don’t make everyone crazy. This is an issue I am considering even as I write this piece. At what point am I going from providing a service to doing damage to the morale of good people?
There are two types of people making statements. Those with sources and knowledge, and those with theories and ideas. I fall into the second category. When I discuss this coming September 11th I do so based on what I see, what I think, and what theories I believe to be realistic and often even likely. Personally, and I know I am not alone on this one, I see this September 11th as being the most dangerous one since the attacks in 2001. We have already been attacked by ISIS through the very murders of 2 American journalists. But with some of the theories out there, as the day approaches it becomes more and more difficult to feel safe.
The first of the 2 most prominent concerns is the report that states that information was recovered from a laptop indicating that Muslim terrorists were looking to create a way of weaponizing the Bubonic plague, something that could result in horrifying deaths in mass numbers. The second of the concerns revolves around the report that as many as 11, yes I said 11 commercial airlines have gone missing from the airport in Tripoli, Libya, a city recently capture by Jihadists. If this is the case, and there are 11 enormous weapons out there with their sights on population centers, the potential outcome is indeed terrifying. It is at this point in writing I decided to place a warning in the beginning of the piece, because as I write this I too feel intense fear at what might happen. To be honest, even if it is attempted and thwarted it is still terrifying.
I’ve said it before and I will say it again. World War III has already begun. However, since it is unlike the first 2 World Wars it is very difficult to clearly identify it for what it is. But I will try to simplify it. Muslim extremism is attempting to take over the world and to do so as violently as possible. There is an enemy that is taking it to everyone, and only the amount of deaths is what stands in the way of people calling this a World War. A detail I believe they have every intention of trying to change very soon. This is not Islamophobia, this is fact based on their own admissions and actions. I believe it is accelerating a little faster than they wanted it to, but if the world doesn’t take appropriate action, it won’t matter if they were ready to move forward or not. I hope I am wrong. I hope, no I pray to God that nothing happens on September 11, that Israel will be safe, and that the good countries of the world work together to stem the tide of hatred and violence. But if I am right, God help us all.
