Three Arrested At NYC Airport En Route To ISIS

The news out of New York City should cause us to pause
Three Muslim men were arrested trying to fly to Istanbul to join the ISIS cause
If convicted they are facing 15 years a penalty not enough to deter
More men and women falling under ISIS’s barbaric lure
In this war on terror their actions have a treason ring
Send them off to Gitmo and into their cell a hangman’s noose to bring
Caught online professing terror support
Somehow the needles found in the cyber haystack and their plans came up short
The NTPD under the current mayor no longer monitors the mosques for jihadist schemes
The NYPD pulling back has to have fulfilled the radicals’ fondest dreams
We got lucky this time with three less fanatics to receive combat experience and then return
Needing only a terrorist act on our soil martyrdom to be earned.
