Now the leaked audio published by the Jewish Chronicle shows that’s indeed the case.
In a chilling conversation with his brother in Blackburn from inside the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, Malik Faisal Akram, 44, said: “I’m opening the doors for every youngster in England to enter America and f*** with them”.
Addressing fellow jihadists, he shouted: “Live your f***ing life bro, you f***ing coward. We’re coming to f***ing America. F*** them if they want to f*** with us. We’ll give them f***ing war.”
The terrorist boasted about his desire for martyrdom. “I’ve asked Allah for this death, Allah is with me, I’m not worried in the slightest,” he raged.
Nothing really surprising here, but while he’s dead, I suspect that some future Islamic terrorists will indeed view that as “opening the doors.”
We’ve seen this before with various Islamic terror tactics being field-tested in the same way. The first time or the first few times it may not work, but then eventually it pays off with much bigger results.
Europe has a lot of Muslims and the U.S. is terrible at vetting travelers. Previous terror attacks, including 9/11, already used Europe as a partial base, but this opens the door for more individual initiative without the need for cells, just a plane ticket.
