Media Overlooks an Islamist Compound in America

The abuse included grooming children to become school shooters, and killing one in a ritual.

A cabal of adults was detained recently by law enforcement in New Mexico and “charged with 11 felony counts of child abuse for keeping … young children, ages 1 to 15, in filthy living conditions at a compound that was literally made out of trash,” The Daily Wire reports. Unfortunately, there’s a twist: The abuse included grooming the children to become Islamists by inciting future school shootings.

According to the Associated Press, “Siraj Ibn Wahhaj was conducting weapons training with assault rifles at the compound near the Colorado border where 11 hungry children were found in filthy conditions.” Very tellingly, said person is the son of Siraj Wahhaj — a man who Fox News explains “was named by prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.” Remember that when the inevitable cries of “lone wolf” begin circulating.

There’s also an extremely grisly revelation involving a deceased child. NBC says, “The young boy whose remains were found … died in a religious ritual conducted because his father believed he was possessed by demons. … [The child] disappeared from his home in Georgia in December. A nationwide search eventually led authorities to the compound in Taos, which was set up by … Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40, who authorities allege had kidnapped his son.” And then apparently oversaw his death.

Judge Sarah Backus, an elected Democrat, set bail at just $20,000 for the five defendants in the case.

Sadly, the silence regarding the reporting of this case is nearly deafening. Yes, occasional articles appear here and there, but the truth is that the coverage is orchestrated and permissibly limited. As Matt Walsh observes, “This should be the biggest story of the year so far.” But the Islamic angle forbids it from being placed under a needed spotlight, as it most assuredly would be if the perpetrators were non-Muslim and Westerners. Given the media hoopla surrounding a couple dozen “alt-right” protesters over the weekend, it’s not a stretch to reach that conclusion. Consequently, a harrowing fact is being sanitized: The Islamic practices of slavery, brainwashing, and jihad commonly seen in the Middle East are happening right here on American soil. Religion of Peace™ indeed.
