Erwin Antonio Rios converted to Islam a few years ago. Before his conversion, he had a couple run-ins with the law, but was nonviolent. Now, he’s plead guilty to possession of a stolen firearm that he acquired to target US military personnel. Why the sudden violent streak? Because Islam instructs its followers that jihad is an imperative.
After his conversion, Rios began networking with other jihadis online, as well as some undercover FBI informants and agents pretending to be jihadis. He discussed his plans with the feds, including how he would rob banks to get the necessary funds to buy more powerful weapons. He also said he wanted to be a “soldier for Allah,” and that Islam would soon rule the world. Like many other Muslims, Rios claimed all infidels were guaranteed to go to hell. However, Rios is gonna be there a lot sooner – I hear North Carolina’s penal system doesn’t take too kindly to wild Muslims.
When discussing US soldiers with the undercover FBI personnel, he said “most efficient way to kill them all would be to wear an explosive vest and blow yourself up for Allah.” Religion of peace right there. Definitely a religion worthy of respect, if its morality is so warped that killing yourself and taking others with you is viewed as an honorable act. Any liberal who thinks that Islam teaches peace needs to read stories like Rios’, then see that Islam itself is what leads to so-called “radicalization” – Islam is a radical, extreme ideology.
