WND's Faces Of 'Soft Terror' Are All Muslim, For Some Reason
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Leo Hohmann may be gone from WorldNetDaily, but his Muslim-hating spirit lives on.

An anonymous WND writer states in a Jan. 26 article, under the headline "The faces of everyday 'soft terror' in U.S.":

Tnuza Jamal Hassan, 19, who is a former student at St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minnesota, says she was angry over American military “crimes.”

So, Hassan, who had expressed radical Islamist ideas to her roommates while in school, police say, went on a two-and-half-hour arson spree at the campus she had recently left, reportedly to travel with her family to Ethiopia.

She reportedly set eight fires across the campus.

“You guys are lucky that I don’t know how to build a bomb because I would have done that,” she told police.

Hassan is one of many suspects and convicts of what might be called “soft terrorist” acts in the U.S. They don’t get much attention because their crimes don’t rise to the level of mass murder, shooting attacks and bombings. They don’t grab national headlines. Yet, the growing frequency of these acts of violence suggest an underlying Muslim rage much more widespread than the spectacular attacks that do.

WND cites only three examples of this "soft terror," one of which didn't even take place in the U.S. -- all of whom, of course, are Muslim.

Meanwhile, WND is much quieter about a much less soft former of terror on American soil. The Southern Poverty Law Center has counted 110 people killed or wounded by young male adherents to alt-right and white nationalist ideologies -- 60 of which were in 2017 alone.

Among that count are the nine people murdered in a South Carolina church by Dylann Roof, whose white supremacist views echo those made by WND over the years.

It's this kind of selective, hateful reporting that has WND on the brink of death right now.
