11 – Islamic Terror Attacks on American Soil

June 2, 2012

You might not know it from the grand pity party that vocal Muslims seem to have thrown for themselves in the years since 9/11, but only one Muslim in America was killed in a vigilante “revenge” attack following the horrific slaughter of thousands in the name of Allah.  That would be Waqar Hasan, a Muslim convenience storeowner who was gunned down by Mark Anthony Stroman in Texas.  Hardly an average American, Stroman was a white supremacist with a felony criminal record who went on to shoot two more people in the following weeks.  However, he did claim to be motivated by anger after having watched the twin towers fall.

For anyone keeping score 

People killed by radical Muslims on 9/11: 2,996
Muslim-Americans killed “in revenge”: 1

Thankfully, an American jury sentenced Mark Stroman to death.  The same cannot be said of many Muslim terrorists such as Lockerbie bomber, Abdelbaset Al Megrahi, who not only have sanctuary in Muslim countries, but are often treated as heroes by devout followers of Muhammad.

Of course, 9/11 was neither the first nor the last time that Muslims have killed Americans on U.S. soil in terror attacks.  In fact, since that day, Muslims have killed at least 54 people in 32 separate acts of terrorism in the United States (by the standards that Muslim-American groups set for hate crimes).  Perhaps more importantly, there have been plenty of mass murder plots against Americans by Islamic terrorists that were thwarted by the FBI, law enforcement and overseas intelligence operations both before and after 9/11, as well as several that were simply botched, such as the attempt to blow up Times Square.

By contrast, Muslim-Americans do not appear to be in any special danger from murderous (non-Muslim) religious fanatics, even in a nation awash in firearms.  Identity groups, such as CAIR, whine incessantly about relatively trivial incidents while turning a blind eye to the horrible violence that is meted out daily in the name of their religion.  This distasteful petulance offers insight not only into the character of Islam, but also the America’s impressive religious tolerance.

For anyone wondering about the history of deadly Islamic terror on American soil in the last 35 years, here’s what we could find:
