On Death Row, This Notorious American Muslim Terrorist Now Wants To Join The Islamic Caliphate

Islamic terrorists

He killed 13 people and injured more than 30 others at Fort Hood in 2009. Now the man responsible for that massacre — former Army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan — reportedly wants to join ISIS so he can continue his religious war against “disbelievers.”

In an undated letter apparently written from his prison cell, Hasan tells an ISIS leader that he wants to join the caliphate. The letter was first obtained by Fox News.

“I formally and humbly request to be made a citizen of the Islamic State,” Hasan says in the handwritten document addressed to “Ameer, Mujahid Dr. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.”

“It would be an honor for any believer to be an obedient citizen soldier to a people and its leader who don’t compromise the religion of All-Mighty Allah to get along with the disbelievers.”

The two-page letter includes Hasan’s signature and the abbreviation SoA for Soldier of Allah.

Is the letter genuine — was it really written by the man convicted of gunning down his fellow soldiers at Fort Hood? Hasan’s lawyer seems to acknowledge its authenticity, telling Fox News:

…the letter “underscores how much of his life, actions and mental thought process are driven by religious zeal. And it also reinforces my belief that the military judge committed reversible error by prohibiting Major Hasan from both testifying and arguing…how his religious beliefs” motivated his actions during the shooting.

Hasan described himself at trial as a soldier who ‘switched sides’ in a supposed war between America and Islam. A military jury sentenced Hasan to death for the shooting rampage at Fort Hood.

Meantime, as the Daily Mail observes:

…a second American reportedly killed while fighting for the Islamic State in Syria was yesterday identified as a father-of-nine from Minneapolis who had vowed to ‘give up this worldly life for Allah’.

Abdirahmaan Muhumed, 29, is believed to have died last week in the same battle as rapper Douglas McAuthur McCain, who grew up in the same city.

The Obama Admin Just Took A Stand For Islam That Will Drive You Crazy

According to recent reports, the Obama administration is taking on the town of St. Anthony, Minn. for its leaders’ decision to turn down a request to build an Islamic center. U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger confirmed that the Department of Justice is suing the municipality, alleging that denial of the permit amounts to a violation of federal law.

“Though we have filed our lawsuit,” he said, “we hope the good people of St. Anthony, including the elected officials who made this decision, will change their minds and allow Abu Huraira to conduct prayer services in this space.”

The group sought permission to use the basement of the city’s business center to hold its religious ceremonies, prompting the city council to determine that such a use would be in violation of the building’s zoning permit.

City Attorney Jay Lindgren affirmed that decision, noting that there was no discrimination in the council’s action.

“Religious uses of any type are allowed in the vast majority of the city,” he confirmed. “They are just not allowed in the roughly five percent of the city reserved for industrial uses.”

Nevertheless, Luger concluded that, since a previous council approved a permit for a union hall to hold meetings in the same zone, rejecting the Islamic center is evidence of unequal treatment under the law.

“An injustice has been done,” he alleged. “I will not stand by while any religious group is subject to unconstitutional treatment that violates federal civil rights laws.”

Among the locals who disagreed with the council’s decision and its aftermath was Rev. Paul La Fontaine. The Catholic church he leads in the community served as a sponsor of an interfaith event designed to offer a welcoming hand to the Islamic group.

“There was a desire to show a different face on things,” La Fontaine said. “It was an opportunity to get together and see some other people. Everyone is interested in having a good job and raising a family.”

Watch: General Warns That Flight 370 Plane Could Be Returning For Attack On American Soil

mcinerney

Since the 9/11 terrorist attack of 2001, its anniversary has evoked both sorrow and fear in the hearts of Americans.

While remembering the thousands killed in the execution of that savage plot, the threat that radicals could mark Sept. 11 with another attack has been a recurring concern. Those fears were realized two years ago when a terrorist strike on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya left four Americans dead.

If retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney is right, the upcoming 13th anniversary of 9/11 could pose an even greater risk to Americans.

In a recent Fox News appearance, he noted that military leaders see the threat much differently than Barack Obama. “The president thinks everything’s OK,” McInerney said, celebrating the fact that “al Qaeda’s dead and he killed Osama bin Laden.”

In reality, however, he asserted that Obama’s narrative is “three years behind.”

As it stands, military experts – including Secretary of State John Kerry – are pleading with Obama to take decisive action regarding the threat that terrorist organization Islamic State, or ISIS, poses in Iraq, Syria, and beyond. “ISIS unchecked is an existential threat to the United States,” he said, “and soon. I’m not talking two or three years from now. I’m talking very, very soon.”

In order to counter that threat, McInerney suggested taking “very aggressive corrective action,” including “hitting 200 targets a day” in order to neutralize the terrorist network’s ability to stage attacks. Insisting the U.S. should increase its terror threat level ahead of Sept. 11, he noted that there are a number of ways ISIS could wreak havoc within the U.S.

He then alluded to an upcoming book from “a major news network and publishing network” that he said will offer an “earth-shattering” look at the immediate danger posed by these Islamic militants. “The fact is we may even see a 9/11/14 MH-370 resurface again,” he said. “We should go to DEFCON 1, our highest state of readiness and be prepared as we lead up to 9/11.”

He has previously suggested that the commercial airliner that disappeared in March could have safely landed in Pakistan, where it sits ready to be used by terrorists for a potential attack.

BREAKING: Insiders Expose Obama’s Secret Strategy For Imposing Amnesty

shutterstock_132479669

It comes as no surprise to learn that President Obama is putting the finishing touches on his ignore-the-Constitution plan to declare amnesty for an untold number of illegal immigrants by executive action. Team Obama has long indicated that the president would act unilaterally to impose amnesty, very likely around Labor Day.

But what may be a surprise is the legal excuse the White House is cooking up to give Obama a reason to “rewrite law” and change the course of the country with a stroke of his presidential pen.

According to the Associated Press (H/T: Yahoo! News):

The White House is crafting a blame-it-on-Congress legal justification to back up President Barack Obama’s impending executive actions on immigration.

Facing an expected onslaught of opposition, the administration plans to argue that Congress failed to provide enough resources to fully enforce U.S. laws, thereby ceding wide latitude to White House to prioritize deportations of the 11.5 million people who are in the country illegally, administration officials and legal experts said. But Republicans, too, are exploring their legal options for stopping Obama from what they’ve deemed egregious presidential overreaching.

That “onslaught of opposition” described in the AP report is expected from both Republicans and Democrats, from the political right as well as the left. The GOP opposes the executive action for obvious reasons. Democrats — especially those Senate Dems up for re-election in November — are increasingly concerned that an Obama amnesty action would fire up a voter backlash and imperil their campaigns.

From breitbart.com:

“Some Democratic senators are probably not going to come back. And it’s stunning, right, it’s literally like the president is going to put a gun to the head of Democratic senators,” Tamar Jacoby, president and CEO of ImmigrationWorks USA — a federation of small businesses that rely on immigrant labor and are pushing for immigration reform — predicted to Breitbart News.

Jacoby was referring to vulnerable Democrats facing reelection in red states such as Arkansas Sen. Mark Pryor, Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu, Alaska Sen. Mark Begich and North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan.

“It’s all but certain that this is going to be a decisive factor in their elections and [Obama] knows it. Everybody knows it. And they are just making the calculation the long term gain is more important,” Jacoby said, explaining that the White House likely sees the long term gain to be helping to persuade, if not solidify the Latino vote.

But the battle cry from the Left — particularly from immigration activists and those pushing for open borders — appears to be too loud, too strong for Obama to ignore. Via Yahoo! News:

After resisting calls to act alone in hopes Congress would pass a comprehensive immigration fix, Obama in June bowed to immigration activists and said that “if Congress will not do their job, at least we can do ours.” The most sweeping, controversial step under consideration involves halting deportation for millions, a major expansion of a 2012 Obama program that deferred prosecutions for those brought here illegally as children.

What Eric Holder Is Doing In Ferguson Definitively Proves That Eric Holder Is A Racist

Since the death of Michael Brown on August 9, the town of Ferguson, Missouri has been a simmering cauldron.

In response, Barack Obama dispatched his Attorney General, Eric Holder, to presumably calm nerves and restore order. But rather than mediating the situation, Holder – who is the chief law enforcement officer in America – added a painful mix of rage, racism, and hatred into an already ugly scene.

Holder recounted stories to the angry protestors to show that he understood their rage. He recalled being stopped for speeding in New Jersey, telling the assembled residents, “I remember how humiliating that was, and how angry I was, and the impact it had on me.”

He also expressed outrage about being stopped in Washington, D.C. on his way to a movie.

The Attorney General said, “At the time that he stopped me, I was a federal prosecutor. I wasn’t a kid. I was a federal prosecutor. I worked at the United States Department of Justice. So I’ve confronted this myself.”

From his comments, it’s safe to assume that Holder believes working for the federal government should place him above the law. What’s more, you can clearly see that he’s still dealing with rage from this incident all these years later.

However, the real outrage here is that the federal government rushed to the scene of a local riot and used it to gin up racial unrest nationwide.

A Distinct Political Agenda

The events in Ferguson led Andrew McCarthy, of the National Review, to ask: “Why has a federal civil-rights murder investigation arisen out of the tumult in a St. Louis exurb?” McCarthy concluded that there’s only one plausible reason: “Eric Holder is guilty of racial profiling.”

In fact, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen this type of reverse racism before. Just think back to the Trayvon Martin case in Florida.

Thus, it’s not surprising that Eric Holder – who has obstructed investigations into the IRS scandal, the Fast and Furious gun-running scheme, the Black Panthers voter intimidation scandal, and numerous other cases of serious misconduct by top government officials – wants to throw the book at a young, white police officer named Darren Wilson.

It’s not even surprising that Holder dispatched no fewer than 50 FBI agents and forensic specialists to the scene of the crime in Ferguson, or that he’s sending the message that Barack Obama’s administration cares about certain crimes more than others.

Here’s the thing: During the months since the Trayvon Martin case, there have been hundreds of black-on-black murders. These crimes get no attention because they don’t feed into the political narrative that is important to Barack Obama and Eric Holder… the narrative that “America is racist.”

For his part, Holder remains convinced that he was pulled over for speeding and stopped on the way to the movies because he’s black. Get over it.

We’ve all been pulled over for speeding; and unlike Holder, white people don’t believe that working for the federal government should immediately exempt them from the law.
