A 19-year-old man has been arrested as a result of a national security investigation into an ISIS-inspired attack. The man reportedly “exchanged texts with undercover investigators about his interest in conducting a possible knife attack in Queens.”

Fortunately, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney in Eastern New York revealed “there is no current public safety issue as a result of the arrest.”

Yes ladies and gentlemen, we still have a fundamental Islamic terror problem. With the majority of worldwide deaths from terrorism being a result of Islamic fundamentalism, it is unsurprising that this type of ideology is able to reach here.
