So They Finally Did the Vetting of Tashfeen Malik, and It Turns Out the Address She Gave Is Fake, and She's Connected to Pakistan' Most Notorious Radical Mosque

Rigorous vetting.

She was connected to the "Red Mosque" in Pakistan.

The woman who took part in the ISIS-inspired San Bernardino massacre is linked to her native country's most notorious radical mosque, American officials believe.

Sources have told Daily Mail Online that US officials handed over information to their Pakistani counterparts about links between Tashfeen Malik and the Red Mosque in Islamabad.

The mosque is infamous for its links to violence and authorities in Pakistan are now considering taking action against its preacher, Maulana Abdul Aziz, after the disclosures by US officials.

But, of course:

By the way, a "news agency" which supports ISIS says the attacks were carried out on behalf of ISIS.

Salon gonna Salon:

It's fair to say Tashfeen Malik had a face made to be burka'd:

One last thing: I don't really think Islam, per se, is responsible for Islamist violence. I think it's tribal identity racism that's the engine of it -- the never-ending demonization of The Other, the never-ending conspiracy theories of how The Other is insulting you and slighting you and attacking you, etc.

I would like to see Muslims' outsized reservoirs of grievance and insult-taking to be diminished. It would help calm the more ludicrous Muslims if other Muslims were not forever talking up how they are being mistreated and oppressed.

But we're not going to get that.

Because the minute we post a picture of a mass-murderer, we get fresh Muslim grievance-mongering: A worker at Al Jazeera America chastised ABC for running the woman's picture, noting that she chose to wear a burka, and wasn't this disrespectful towards her family.

He deleted that tweet, but not before whining about his own new grievances about people's refusals to respect Malik's "culture:"

Then a guy from CAIR did what guys from CAIR do -- he blamed Muslim terrorism on non-Muslims, for provoking them so.

So, the dilemma we're face with is that many Muslims expect us to walk on eggshells around them at all times -- else we're provoking them, and that justifies their violence response.

Sounds to me like we can either be a free society, then, or a society that's welcoming of further Muslim immigration -- but we can't be both.

I don't expect Muslims to take the blame for things they didn't do, but I've now quite had it with Muslim leaders shifting the blame to people who obviously had nothing to do with it.

And I'm tired of Muslims taking every new terrorist outrage as the chance to lecture America on the supremacy of their culture and the steps me must take to better accommodate this culture and show more "respect" for it.

I do not expect them to accept blame that's not theirs; but goddamnit, I will not tolerate CAIR acting as the political wing of ISIS and acting as a "clean front" to deliver Global Jihad, Inc.'s list of demands to the West while the terrorist wings kill us.

That's what terrorist groups do-- they split off a "political wing" which is supposedly non-terrorist to serve as the respectable face of the movement. The terrorist group Black September created the allegedly non-terrorist PLO; the IRA created the allegedly non-terrorist Sinn Fein.

I'm sick to death of CAIR coming out and delivering ISIS' list of grievances to us, on behalf of Muslims worldwide, while at the same time claiming that Islam has nothing to do with ISIS.

Islam has nothing at all to do with ISIS; but, that said, here is our list of demands.

There's a term for this inside-outside game in which one party acts as the "respectable" face of the extortionist burning down the neighborhood: criminal collusion.
