Despite the ludicrous claims of former President Barack Obama and his globalist cohorts, radical Islamic terror is still a very real threat both at home in America and abroad.
During this fledgling week, we have already witnessed one deadly bombing attack in Saint Petersburg, Russia, with another device being discovered and detonated just hours later by Russian authorities. In the aftermath of this attack, ISIS was seen celebrating in all the dark corners of the internet. In these sickeningly joyous messages, an affirmation of the Islamic radicals’ newest angle in their international campaign has emerged as they applauded the killing of “worshipers of the Cross”, and not simply “infidels”.
Now, one New Jersey teenager has been outed as a possible convert to the ideals of radical Islam, and is being charged in a conspiracy to assassinate one of the world’s most iconic religious leaders.
“A New Jersey teen pleaded guilty Monday to a plot allegedly inspired by the Islamic State group to kill Pope Francis during his 2015 visit to the United States.
“The US Justice Department said Santos Colon, 15 years old at the time, sought to recruit a sniper to shoot the pope as he celebrated mass in Philadelphia on September 27, 2015. Colon also allegedly planned to set off explosives.
“But the teen unwittingly recruited an undercover FBI agent for the job, and was arrested quietly 12 days before the event.
“‘Colon engaged someone he believed would be the sniper, but in reality was an undercover FBI employee. Colon engaged in target reconnaissance with an FBI confidential source and instructed the source to purchase materials to make explosive devices,’ the Justice Department said in a statement.”
Colon’s insistence on targeting The Pope has now become clearer in the wake of the celebrations surrounding the Saint Petersburg massacre. ISIS is not merely interested in the death of Americans and their liberty-loving kin. ISIS is planning the mass extermination of anyone outside of the Muslim faith.
This has been a concern of many experts for years, as an increase in Muslim rhetoric has been accompanying the deadly attacks all over the globe. ISIS has certainly always been religiously motivated, but a recent shift in their priorities has been noted. This effectively increases the amount of targets that the deadly terrorist organization can attack via their lone wolf operatives, who have spread across the globe in the wake of the Syrian refugee crisis, with many an ISIS solider exploiting the open borders of Europe, posing as asylum seekers.
