“The American Blood Is Best, and We Will Taste It Soon”, says ISIS

Fox News
reports that jihadi web sites are rejoicing over today’s terrorist
attacks in Paris. The line we have heard more than once from
ISIS-related sites is, “The American blood is best, and we will taste it
soon.” The French are tougher than many realize, but they are not the
primary targets of Muslim extremists.
This morning, in a burst of bad timing, Barack Obama said on ABC that
ISIS is “contained.” Far from being contained, ISIS is on a roll, from
the Sinai, where they apparently brought down an airplane full of
Russian tourists, to Paris, France.
No one can seriously doubt that ISIS, and other Muslim terrorist
groups, are doing all they can to attack the United States. We,
meanwhile, are welcoming enormous numbers of immigrants from Islamic
countries, and have gone “open borders” so that anyone can enter the
United States from the south. What reason is there to think that Islamic
terrorists will not enter across our unguarded borders and organize
attacks similar to, or worse than, what France experienced tonight?
The Obama administration is at risk. If a Paris-style attack is
launched during the next year by ISIS or by Muslims inspired by ISIS or
al Qaeda, especially if the perpetrators enter the United States
illegally–not that entering legally is a major barrier–the open-borders
Democrats will have a great deal of explaining to do.
One way or another, as Paul www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2015/11/the-lesson-from-today, the U.S. must up its counter-terrorist game, or be prepared for a disaster like the one that befell France today.
