Was there a security failure or was there a lack of security?

The news of this attack had a very strange effect on me. I thought to myself, “That’s a major Arab area. Where was the security.”

Coming from the Arab community, I grew in with masjids that always had an almost military presence. Sometimes they were armed. And this has been the case with every masjid I have been to with majority Arab population or Arab administration.

Figure 1A: Regents Park Masjid, London, a very strong security presence

Figure 2A: Northgate Masjid, Seattle, near military presence

Figure 3A: North London Central Mosque, London, Never without security

Figure 4A: King Fahd Centre, Culver City, US, military strongmen

Figure 5A: Islamic Institute of Orange County, Anaheim, US, someone was on hand.

So it was so strange that this large Arab community was missing security. Even the Arab afterschools, weekend schools and other events had private hire security. The tyranny of the Arab world teaches you to always be prepared in a new world.

Perhaps they were feeling too comfortable. Maybe it was too large of an expense. Maybe there was a breakdown in the security that was in place and they never saw it coming. The security at these masjids was not just on hand for people, but they had security cameras and also had their ears to the street for local community.

During this terrible time there needs to be mourning, recitation of the Qur’an for the deceased; but then moving on we should think of security. If it was not there, it should be. If it was there and there was a breakdown, there should be a restrengthening of the force. Until next time.

TIME TO GET OUT: White Knights ride again?

Figure 1A: The White Knights in full uniform.

The following article below should drive home the reality to Muslims that they need to seek domicile elsewhere and their betterment in another location. Having fought the White Knights on numerous occasions, whether it be the police, the National Guard, the sheriff, CHPs (which recruit from the White Knights), I have seen just about every permutation of this group. Lyndon B. Johnson fought them to a stalemate on the Equal Rights Act and it cost him his presidency.

No one has fought them and not sustained some scars. The White Knights of the KKK grew out of the 1820s and at the time had a foothold in the Democratic Republican Party.

(this would later implode and out of its collapse would come the Democrats and the GOP; it is not as some claim that the Klan was always “democrat” The rise of the KKK came when there was no democratic party; they were Democratic Republicans)

Since that time they have burrowed into law enforcement, the judiciary and so many other facets of US life that not encountering them is rare. Their power comes from being invisible, hence the nickname the “Invisible Empire”.

I am not making reference to a franchise of the KKK or a particular chapter that may/may not be bankrupt. I am talking about the White Knights of the Order of Columbus of the Ku Klux Klan. They have never been out of business and most likely never will be.

My family and I have encountered the White Knights in Annapolis, Maryland, Louisiana, Washington State, Oregon, California, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. These men are no joke and they mean business about what they say. They don’t make threats; they make promises.

I have been shown over and over again that the only way to contend with these men (and I use the word reservedly) is through physical confrontation. The Muslims who have gone into millennial ideology or liberal thought that intersects with it are wholly unprepared for a battle of this type. It is for this reason that my advice is to leave if you are not prepared to exert the maximum level of force necessary to resist them.
