In a move that came as a shock to Americans the country over, President Joe Biden has done what many feared he would do and made a path for dangerous and violent jihadist criminals to find themselves free in American society today.
According to Hannity.com, the Biden administration has caused an international stir with the global counter-terrorism community when they choose to remove a group with the motto “Death to America” from the international list of deadly jihadi networks.
“The Biden administration responded to protests against its stolen election by embedding a domestic extremism office into the National Security Council. The man in charge of making it happen, Joshua Geltzer, had previously denied that Black Lives Matter was a terrorist threat and had attacked the Trump administration’s response to Antifa and BLM violence in Portland,” writes FrontPage Magazine.
“Joe Biden, whose biggest bundlers included the Iran Lobby, announced he was ending support for American allies fighting the Houthis, and then went even further by preparing to remove the terrorist organization whose motto is, ‘Death to America’, which took American hostages and tried to kill American sailors, from the list of designated foreign terrorist organizations,” adds the outlet.
These accusations are troubling enough, without taking a deeper look at what exactly this group believes in, but what fun would that be. While a reserved take at an optimistic outcome might make us all sleep better at night, but it won’t be the attitude to preserve freedom. To that end, we take a look at what award Israeli-born journalist and conservative commentator Daniel Greenfield has to say about the group’s ideological tenants.
“The motto of Iran’s Houthi Jihadis is, ‘Allahu Akbar, Death to America, Death to Israel, Curse the Jews, Victory to Islam.’” Greenfield reported. “The Houthis took over parts of Yemen as a result of the chaos unleashed by Obama’s pro-Islamist Arab Spring. Since then they’ve been engaged in a protracted war while causing a local famine by confiscating food from the local population.”
The journalist went on to report that The Houthis lived up to their “Death to America” slogan by making several attempts to bring down the USS Mason by launching cruise missiles at the ship tasked with protecting a commerce inlet in the area.
“And they lived up to the second half of their slogan by ethnically cleansing the remaining local Jewish population, locking them up, and confiscating their homes and land. Local reports stated that the Houthis were ‘cutting off water & electricity to Jewish homes and preventing Jews from purchasing food.’”
“Secretary Blinken has been clear about undertaking an expeditious review of the designations of Ansarallah,” the State Department said according to Greenfield. “After a comprehensive review, we can confirm that the Secretary intends to revoke the Foreign Terrorist Organization and Specially Designated Global Terrorist designations of Ansarallah.”
What possible gain the Biden administration could have in seeking a positive diplomatic relationship with such a group remains unknown. What is known, is that now that the group isn’t on the terror list they will be once again open up a plethora of possibilities to a group that has made no bones about their profession of intent to kill Americans as part of a perceived moral imperative.
The bigger question is not about this group specifically but why, as a part of a broader pattern of behavior, the Commander-in-Chief of our military is consistently using his executive office to undo safety and security measures put in place to fend off not only rogue bands of terrorists like the ones highlighted here today but also the Chinese Communist government and others? Is blatantly incompetent? Are his advisers lying to him? Or is there possibly a potential personal gain for the Biden family? These are the questions that Americans who plan to stay Americans and keep their heads firmly on their shoulders, should be asking.
