Quotes and Excerpts from
In Mortal Danger:
The Battle for America's Border and Security
by Congressman Tom Tancredo
WorldNetDaily Books, 2006
Note: Tom Tancredo describes the nature of Islamic terrorism (Islamofascism), its hatred for America, and its hatred for Jews and Christians. He gives clear evidence that terrorists are getting into America across the Mexican border. His information about terrorism is far more comprehensive than the following excerpts.
Chapter 6: The Barbarians Are Past the Gate
"Mara Salvatrucha [MS-13] is one of the most violent and bloodthirsty gangs every to prey on our society.... Its original members came from the leftist insurgent forces that opposed the Salvadoran government in the 1980s. Members were trained in firearms, explosives, and booby traps....
"These dragones [MS-13 gang members] transport their human cargo from
El Salvador through Mexico by train. Conductors and railroad officials
are bribed to facilitate the mission. At some point, the cargo is
transferred to vehicles to better penetrate the U.S. border.
"The routes are spotted with safe houses along the route to ensure their success. And make no mistake, they are highly successful in delivering their cargo.
"Numerous media reports have featured intelligence officials' warnings of a connection between MS-13 and al Quaeda. In July 2004, reports surfaced of an al Quaeda figure meeting with MS-13 in Honduras in order to secure entry routes into the United States."
"In November 2005, [Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez Jr. of Zapata County, Texas] told a conference in San Antonio that it was not a matter of
if, but when a terrorist will enter the United States through Mexico with a dirty bomb or some other portable weapon of mass
destruction. "We tried everything we know, with little success, to make the federal government aware of the problems we face and how they
have affected us. The creation of the Department of Homeland Security has done nothing to help us," he concluded. ["Border Sheriff Warns: We're Overwhelmed," WorldNetDaily.com, November 12, 2005.]
"In Jim Hogg County, Texas, Sheriff Erasmo Alarcon Jr., in a letter published in the local newspaper in the spring of 2003, warned of
unidentified armed men dressed in military fatigues who had been spotted a number of times by area citizens and ranchers. The sheriff
said that witnesses had described the men as wearing "professional-looking" backpacks and walking in military cadence.
"In another Tex-Mex border county, a sheriff's department said deputies discovered a large metal container that had washed ashore from the Rio Grande. The container held several cylinders, each filled with papers covered with Arabic writing."
"In December 2005, the Department of Homeland Security sent word that authorities had arrested dozens of terrorist operatives who were
already inside the country. While the total number of suspects was unknown, officials reported at least fifty-one people from countries
known to support terrorist activities or harbor terrorist sympathies—Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Pakistan, and Syria—had been intercepted
by the Border Patrol and other members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) since the unit began tracking such arrests a little more
than a year before. These suspected illegal-alien terrorists had been apprehended for a wide variety of charges, including weapons smuggling
and illegally wiring large sums of money into the country.
"In November 2005, Texas congressman John Culberson released information that an Iraqui with ties to al Quaeda and on the terrorist
watch list had been arrested and detained at the border.
"...President George W. Bush continues to refer to our enemy as terrorism or, more recently, extremism. Of course, neither of these
isms accurately characterizes our enemy. The real enemy is Islamofascism. Contrary to popular belief, Islamofascism did not begin
with our support for Israel, and it would not end if that support were withdrawn.
"The clash of civilizations is not with the religion of Islam, but with the Islamic religion that has been married to a political philosophy
that says that all nonbelievers must be annihilated, abolished, eliminated. It is with people who have openly and repeatedly stated
that their desire is to kill you and your children, me and my children, to eradicate us from the planet because we do not accept
their political and religious ideologies.
"There is empirical proof that the basic tenets and characteristics of Islam are a cause for concern. In his book, The Dunces of Doomsday, Paul Williams clearly lays out the basic lessons of Islam and the Prophet Mohammed to convey our desperate need to understand our enemy.
"Jihad is a religious duty...'Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and his Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of truth, [even if they are] the People of the Book [Christians and Jews], until they pay with willing submission and feel themselves subdued...'" (The Koran, 9:29).
"Martyrdom is the highest good. 'Allah purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs in return is the Garden of Paradise: they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth.'" (The Koran, 9:111).
"Muslims engaged in jihad must not show tolerance toward nonbelievers. 'Slay the idolaters wherever you find them.'" (The Koran, 9:5).
"Acts of Terrorism...are justified by the Prophet's example. 'I will inspire terror in the hearts of Unbelievers: you smite them above their necks and smite all their fingertips off them.'" (The Koran, 8:2).2 [2. Paul L. Williams, The Dunces of Doomsday (Nashville: WND Books, 2006), 55-58.]
"Religious freedom is not permitted in the Islamic world. In Muslim countries, conversions can only go one way: from whatever you are to Islam. Punishment for the reverse procedure is torture or death."
