The Terror Risk: The Lone Wolf
By Micah Halpern

Friday January 9, 2009

I've Been Thinking:

In Islam, Friday is the Sabbath, it is the day of rest.
And on Friday's, like every other day, Muslims pray five times.
The difference is that on Friday the Imam delivers a sermon in honor of the Sabbath.

There are some mosques and some Imams who speak not only on Friday, but in every mosque the Imam delivers his main sermon on Friday.

I will venture to bet that today, in almost every mosque around the world, Imams will be preaching about Gaza, Israel and the world.
Some will add their own unique insight but almost all will draw a direct link between the United States, Israel and the Western world. Most will speak about how there is a clash of cultures.

The implication of these sermons is particularly important.
Friday sermons and Islamic websites are often the stimulus for the
"lone wolf" phenomenon.
Lone wolves are people who become so agitated by events or so inflamed by sermons or so frantic by what they read on the websites that, on their own, they set out to attack a soft target.

We must all be aware of the "lone wolf" phenomenon.
Soft targets are religious schools, synagogues, churches and institutions.
Soft targets are official offices, individuals and businesses.
There is no way to strategize against the lone wolf, the best defense we have is simply to be alert and to be aware.
