Editor’s Note – Is homegrown Jihadi Terror active here at home? Of course it is and now we can see that not only did we have the Boston Marathon Bombing and the Fort Hood Massacre – we now see that a young man, Brendan Tevlin was killed in South Orange, NJ. There are many more instances, but this one has been largely ignored in the media. (More extensive coverage can be found here at Heavy.com.)
Why? Because he was an “American” and America had to pay for its military actions in the Middle East.
A local radio talk personality ran with the story that is now becoming a major subject for discussion, especially since Obama said in his prime time speech last Wednesday that:
We will continue to use the criminal justice system as a critical tool in our counterterrorism toolbox.
…we will counter violent extremism here at home, including tailored domestic programs to prevent violent extremism and radicalization in order to intervene with at-risk individuals before they become radicalized toward violence…
The President may never admit it, but the problem is Islam. The Islamic State is Islamic, Fort Hood was Islamic terror, the Tsarnaev brothers were Islamic terrorists – denying the obvious does not make the problem disappear or absolve all Muslims to reign in the fundamentalists who use the Qu’ran verbatim.
Now we hear that it depends on how people interpret what is written in the Qu’ran from many talking heads. Reading words verbatim indicates they have certain meaning and are unrestrained as is pointed out below. They do not need interpretation, and history cannot be rewritten to cover for the violence that is based on conquering Islamic hordes for over 1,400 years.
It is a fact that in Islam, only an Imam or above is allowed to interpret the Qu’ran. Why, So they can conceal its true meaning and its true nature and wield its power as a toll when they so desire, especially the fundamentalist Muslims. Apologists and so-called moderates inculcate western values into eastern thinking and decide who is and who is not a Muslim. Obama famously now said:
ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim…
We must again encourage all to read the words and the history – these barbaric acts have been waged under the name of Islam for centuries. Islam does condone killing – note the summary from religionofpeace.com:
The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called ‘hypocrites’ and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.
Unlike nearly all of the Old Testament verses of violence, the verses of violence in the Quran are mostly open-ended, meaning that they are not restrained by the historical context of the surrounding text. They are part of the eternal, unchanging word of Allah, and just as relevant or subjective as anything else in the Quran.
The Qu’ran most also be seen through the eys of the law of superposition – that which comes later countermands earlier writings. Do you know the difference between the ‘Medinan Version’ and the ‘Meccan Version’ as well? Please go to the site and read for yourselves.

Brendan Tevlin’s murder evidence that ‘domestic terrorism is already here,’ says radio host (AUDIO)
By Dan Ivers – www.NJ.com
NEW YORK CITY — A New York radio personality is calling for increased attention to the June murder of a 19-year-old Livingston man, calling it evidence that “domestic terrorism is already here.”
Todd Pettengill, host of WPLJ’s “The Todd Show”, discussed the death of Brendan Tevlin for more than eight minutes this morning, asking why the case has not received more attention despite the alleged murderer’s admissions that he killed Tevlin as an act of vengeance for U.S. military actions in the Middle East.
“It was in fact an act of jihad, perpetrated by a fellow American who sympathized more with those who want to annihilate us than with his own country and its people,” he said.
Essex County authorities have charged 29-year-old Ali Muhammad Brown with killing Tevlin in a West Orange intersection on June 25.
Since being taken into custody on July 18, he has confessed to the murder, along with three others in Washington state, saying they were carried out as retribution for innocent lives lost in Iraq, Syria and other parts of the Islamic world.
Pettengil criticized President Barack Obama and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder for not referencing the case in recent addresses and downplaying the level of threat radical Islamists currently living in America could pose.
He also chided the media for not bringing the story to the national stage, and focusing instead on other protests such as those in Ferguson, Mo., where an unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown, was shot to death by a police officer last month.
“If there was ever a reason to riot in the streets in the name of humanity it would for this case. But has that happened? No. And I’m not suggesting that it should,” he said.
“What I’m suggesting should happen is that this should be talked about and written about, and the American people should know.”
Pettengil also echoed the frustrations of Tevlin’s parents over the initial characterization by the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office that the teenager was “targeted” before being gunned down in a West Orange intersection on June 25.
Authorities later walked back the description, saying accused murderer Ali Muhammad Brown and two other men, Jeremy Villagran and Eric Williams, had randomly targeted Tevlin for a robbery before Brown shot him eight times.
A fourth man may have also fled the scene of the murder, according to prosecutors, but he has not been identified or named as a suspect.
Pettengill closed his statement by reminding listeners that they should acknowledge the threats the country faces from terrorists both overseas and at home.
“The bottom line is this, domestic terrorism is already here, and we need to talk about it,” he said.
