From American Thinker and Frontpage comes this:
There is not a whisper of this yet in the mainstream media, but there is a trail of evidence strongly suggesting that Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley, the assassin of officers Liu and Ramos, was a jihadist. Daniel Greenfield of Frontpagemag. com discovered on his Facebook page a shot of the Koran with a telling verse on jihad:
Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly. (emphasis added)
Intrepid jihad researched Patrick Poole has also uncovered evidence on Brinsley’s Instagram trail indicating he may have visited a notorious mosque in Brooklyn:
Responding to a comment on his message, he notes that he is headed to “Al-Farooq Tomorrow inshallah.” His social media traffic indicates that he transited from Atlanta, Baltimore and Brooklyn on a regular basis.
If this reference by the cop killer was from Brooklyn (which is hard to discern since his Instagram account has been taken down), it may indicate that he was going to visit Masjid Al-Farooq in Brooklyn.
Al-Farooq’s long history of terror support goes back more than 20 years, when the 1993 World Trade Center bombing was hatched by members. One imam from the early 1990s, when Al-Farooq was a hub of the nascent Al-Qaeda and was hosting Al-Qaeda co-founder Abdullah Azzam, was Fawaz Damra, who was charged, convicted and later deported for lying to immigration officials about his terror ties when he applied for U.S. citizenship.
Another Al-Farooq imam, Gulshair Shukrijumah, was not only a regular translator for the Blind Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, but his son, Adnan, became a top Al-Qaeda operative and was killed in a gun battle with Pakistani intelligence just a few weeks ago.
Yet another mosque official, Sheikh Mohammed al-Moayad, was charged in 2003 with using the mosque as a front to raise $20 million for Al-Qaeda. At the time, the New York Times noted the mosque’s extensive connections to terrorism.
Poole cautions that this may not be the same Brooklyn Al-Farooq mosque. But if it is, we have another dot to connect.The enemies of ordered liberty are legion.
