The left would have you overlook things like this in the wake of the Boston marathon bombings.
Via CNS News:
Although no group has claimed responsibility for Monday’s deadly bomb blasts at the Boston Marathon, a leading al-Qaeda ideologue last year recommended that jihadists in America include sporting events in their list of prospective terror targets.
Writing in the online magazine of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), Inspire, the terrorist known as Abu Musab al-Suri listed what he called “the most important enemy targets.”
Al-Suri contended that civilians should be targeted “when responding to a brutal practice carried out by America and her allied forces.”
“This is done by targeting human crowds in order to inflict maximum human losses,” he wrote. “This is very easy since there are numerous such targets such as crowded sports arenas, annual social events, large international exhibitions, crowded market-places, skyscrapers, crowded buildings … etc.”
The fact remains that there are scores of Muslim fundamentalists who are cheering what happened in Boston yesterday and who share the sentiment expressed by al-Suri.
