As began the awakening, so began the cover-ups. The western main stream media on the one hand and Muslim brother hood funded Islamic organizations on the other (like CAIR), have between themselves made their best efforts to convince us that Islamic Terrorism is not Islamic.
Moreover, the acts of terrorism by any Islamic radical individual was attributed to their illiteracy, poverty or other such adverse socio-economic condition. However, soon enough something new happened - well read, economic well-to-do and otherwise 'normal' born abroad Muslims started attacking their host countries, and this is where the 'Lone Wolf Theories' started to germinate …
The petro-dollar funded media of the World , in order to save its masters came out with this Lone Wolf theory . It’s not Islam or Islamic Groups that are a threat to the nation but it is the 'lone wolves' -stand alone, crazy people with no religious bent of mind carrying out the attacks. The intent as always, to white wash the threat of rising Islamic terror. That these were not Islamic attacks but the isolated incidences which had nothing to with either religion or with any terrorists groups. This new propaganda along with the fad of Islamophobia, has served well for almost a decade .BUT now the cracks have begun to appear.
Why is it so hard for our “progressive” friends to grasp the global nature of Islamic jihad? While one attack after another occurs (Paris, barely-noticed Boko Harem slaughter of 2000 innocent people in Nigeria), the “lone wolf” theory is pushed by the media. At this point, there sure are a lot of wolves!
It’s not a coordinated effort, they’ll say, just a few wackos acting on their own! From there, falsely tying Islamic terrorism events to one-off incidents in Western countries becomes easy.
Dozens of so called Lone Wolf incidences and the recent spurt in them blows away the lone wolf theory .
Because the lone wolf attack are neither random nor irreligious as the media seems to suggest and more often than not the main culprit is in touch with radical organizations or preachers ?
Even if they act alone, or as part of small local cells, they are following a clear blueprint set out by groups with global name recognition.
"Behind Islamist attacks, there is always someone giving the orders,
If indeed they are 'lone wolves', they are lone wolves of JIHAD and have in fact been stand alone soldiers in cause of their religion. In the free world of internet, young men or women don’t need to travel to Pakistan and Afghanistan to train in jihad , they can start one where they are, as tutored by the same radical preachers in videos easily available on the internet.
We can no longer continue to be deceived into accepting the “Lone Wolf” theory as recent events have clearly exclaimed. The deep and intense ideological invasion within Islam must be thwarted from within the House of Islam.There is no reason to believe the events of today can be held in isolation but must be considered part and parcel of the world-wide terrorist threat from those ideologically radicalized in the name of political Islam

Creating a stand alone warrior is infact the intent of these Jihadist organsiations .The latest issue of the slick jihad magazine, “Inspire”, is devoted to 'Lone Jihadi' attacks (or as the media calls them – the lone wolves). The Islamic State’s recently released video called for more bloody lone wolf Jihadi attacks.
Pamella Geller, an expert on the subject, insists that IS (ISIS) spends fat money on execution videos … for propaganda purposes. “A video released by the Islamic State group last month, showing the beheading of 22 Syrian soldiers, took between four and six hours to film, and cost an estimated $200,000.”
They no doubt consider this 'money well spent'. The video, according to Fox News, is “crisply edited,” and “appears to use a drone.”
This shocking report from a newspaper showing the effect of these videos is an example..
‘ A Kurdish school boy was kidnapped by the ISIS , he along with his friends was regularly tortured and shown beheading and amputation videos and indoctrinated with the isis version of Islam.
He managed to escape but the shock came for his family when he justified the ISIS workings as being RIGHT as they did not torture anyone without evidence or first finding out if he is infidel or not.
Religiously motivated terrorism and psychological imbalance are not mutually exclusive. Viewing the tragedy in the Lindt Café as a 'one-off' by a 'maddy' is dangerous wishful thinking. the idea that the 'lone wolf' is not associated with terrorism is a misunderstanding of how Islamist jihad has morphed today into a war on two fronts: overseas insurgencies that target everyone who is not a certain brand of Islam, and on the other hand, a sophisticated internet presence that incites anyone in the West (or dar al harb, the land of infidels) to carry out single acts of destruction.
The 'lone wolf' is no longer acting entirely on his own, but is linked voluntarily to a worldwide internet phenomenon, which today includes the demand for establishing a caliphate against the so-called 'demonic Zionist Crusader West'. These individuals, lone may they be, are nonetheless part of an imagined 'community of Allah or dar al Islam
We shall examine the leftist claim of Lone-wolf theory in light of hard facts, data from different victims of Jihad across the globe.
In 2006, Taheri-azar drove his car into a crowd at the University in America in an attempt to kill Americans in supposed revenge for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The U.S. government is responsible for the deaths and torture of countless followers of Allah, my brothers and sisters.

Nidal Malik Hasan in the United States, who killed many of his fellow soldiers after opening fire at a military base, lone wolves have recently demonstrated that they can be as dangerous as organized terrorist groups.
Jeffrey D. Simon is a terror expert with 25 years’ experience in the field, He addresses the threat of Lone wolf terrorism in his new book, Lone Wolf Terrorism: Understanding the Growing Threat. When we think about terrorism, the first thing that usually comes to mind is Al Qaeda or similar types of groups. Yet the individual terrorist has proven to be among the most innovative, creative, and dangerous in terrorism history.
For example, it was lone wolves who were responsible for the first major mid air plane bombing, vehicle bombing, hijackings, product contamination, and anthrax attacks in the United States.
Lone wolves think “outside the box” because that is where they always are; namely, outside the box. They are loners who have to operate by themselves. That means there is no group decision-making process or group pressure that might stifle creativity.
This allows lone wolves to act upon any scenario they might think up. Furthermore, lone wolves have little or no constraints on their level of violence. They are not concerned with alienating supporters (as would some terrorist groups), nor are they concerned with a potential government crackdown following an attack.
And since they work alone, they are much harder to identify than groups or even cells since there are no group members to arrest and learn about potential plots.
Females are no far behind in the world of lone wolf terrorism. In one case, a woman who called herself “Jihadi Jane” attempted to form her own terrorist network over the Internet. In another case, an honours student in Britain became radicalised after downloading 100 video sermons by an Islamic extremist cleric and then attempted to assassinate a British member of Parliament.
The world needs to understand that when it comes to the understanding the truth about terrorism and its imminent threat, the sugar-coated leftist media can no longer be relied upon. The coin terms to cover up the truth, makes one feel guilty of communalism, racism or even gender bias if they dare to point out the truth and they distort the facts to fit their narrative of human adversity and ignorance.
Terrorism that emanates from an ideology can never be addressed without scrutinizing the ideology itself, and the world has so far been successfully escaping that. It won't be long before such escapist manoeuvres are questioned by the people, the victims of terror worldwide.
