Letter to the Editor: Ticking Time Bomb?

Wake up, America. Will we get attacked by Islamic terrorists in the near future?

As President Obama implements his open border/amnesty policies, we are being invaded by dangerous people. The OTMs (other than Mexicans) have been illegally crossing the border and escalating for years (Pamela Gellar). Included are Pakistanis, Afghanis, Iraqis — Muslims from jihad nations. Added to the list, Somali refugees (250 percent increase under Obama) and Syrian refugees (100,000 per year). Are they friendly?

In 2010, Gellar disclosed the Mexican Army and federal law enforcement officials discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu, plans of Fort Bliss, and Muslim prayer rugs. Furthermore, jihad groups like Hezbollah used the narco terror transit routes throughout Mexico and there was a spike in ritual Islamic beheadings.

Most recently, it has been noted that ISIS is operating a camp a few miles from El Paso, Texas. According to Judicial Watch, sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican federal police inspector, the terrorist group is located eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as "Anapra." Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juarez targets the towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access into the U.S. "Coyotes" move ISIS jihads through the desert and across the border. These areas were chosen by ISIS because of understaffed police forces.

Mexican sources reveal ISIS intents to exploit railroads and airports, has border spotters, and is surveying universities, the White Sands Missile Range, Fort Bliss and electrical power facilities.

It is time for us to take off the blinders and protect America. Sadly, we have a president and politicians who have failed to do this.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
