The following excerpt is from Chapter Six of my book “Militant Islam In America” written in three years ago, in 2006:
Akbar is not just an anomaly. Many other Muslim members of the U.S. military have been caught in acts of counter-intelligence, selling secrets and weapons to terrorists, preaching jihad, etc., some of whom are spending time in prison today. Among them:
* Egyptian born Ali Mohamed, immigrated to America in 1986 and joined the U.S. as a resident alien. While a member of a group called Islamic Jihad, he taught Muslim culture to forces at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Though honorably discharged in 2000, he admitted being a member of an al Qaeda affiliate and pled guilty to helping plan the 1998 bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa.
* Jeffrey Leon Battle, an African-American convert to Islam, was indicted in 2002 for allegedly joining the Army reserves for military training which he intended to use to kill U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan.
* In 2002, a former Navy reservist, Semi Osman, was arrested for allegedly establishing a terrorist training camp in Oregon. Investigators suspect that he was setting up fuel trucks to be used for suicide bombing missions.
* Senior Airman Ahmad al Halabi, a Syrian born Arabic translator, was charged was espionage in connection with the detention of al Qaeda and Taliban leaders at the Guantanamo Base in Cuba. In a deal, he later pled guilty to lesser charges, including Lying To Investigators and Improper Handling of Sensitive Materials.
* A Muslim Chaplain at Guantanamo, Capt. James Yee, was arrested in September of 2002 and charged with Sedition, Aiding the Enemy, Spying, Espionage and Failing to Follow an Order. All charges were later dropped.
* John Muhammad, the convicted Beltway sniper and Muslim convert, was a member of the Army’s 84th Engineering Company. Muhammad was suspected of throwing a thermite grenade into a tent housing sixteen of his fellow soldiers as they slept before the ground-attack phase of Gulf War I in 1991. Muhammad’s superior, Sgt. Kip Berentson, told both Newsweek and the Seattle Times that he immediately suspected Muhammad, who was “trouble from day one.”
Muhammad was admitted to the Army despite being court-martialed earlier for willfully disobeying orders, striking another noncommissioned officer, wrongfully taking property, and being absent without leave while serving in the Louisiana National Guard. Muhammad’s charges were dropped and he was honorably discharged from the Army in 1994. Eight years later, he was arrested in the 21-day Beltway shooting spree that left ten dead and three wounded.
Abdurahman Alamoudi, the same imam who founded the American Muslim Council, created the entire Muslim corps of chaplains for the Pentagon. In 1991, Alamoudi organized Saudi pilgrimages for all new converts with the blessings of the Bush I administration, and organized programs so that Muslims soldiers could watch Saudi television for religious counseling.
After the Afghan war began, Alamoudi was given power of attorney by several of the al Quaeda detainees at Guantanamo. Author Paul Sperry obtained tax records to show that Alamoudi’s Veteran’s Affairs council is funded in part by the U.S. based International Islamic Relief Organization, identified as one of Osama bin Laden’s favorite charities.
Alamoudi is now in prison serving twenty-three years for plotting acts of terror.
In his book, “Onward Muslim Soldiers”, Robert Spencer reports that in July of 2002, the U.S. Air Force asked for help recruiting Muslim chaplains for the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), an organization with Wahhabi links. Many Muslim Chaplains were trained by representatives of the American Muslim Foundation (AMF) which has been investigated by the feds for funneling money to terrorists. Because of this system, many Muslim chaplains in the U.S. military are espousing strong Wahhabi beliefs, which are indisputably in conflict with the mission of defeating Islamofascist terror.
When will we ever learn?
The following is from Washington Times columnist, Frank Gaffney on November 9th.
During his posting in the Washington area, Hasan attended one of the most virulently Shariah-adherent mosques in America, Fairfax County’s Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center. He publicly expressed admiration for its one-time imam, Anwar Al-Awlaki – an exponent of jihad associated with two of the perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks.
Hasan repeatedly tried to proselytize his psychiatric patients – many of whom genuinely did have PTSD – to convert to Islam, prompting complaints from a number of those he was treating.
He apparently authored blog postings that favorably depicted suicide bombings who go to their heavenly virgins shouting “Allahu Akhbar!”
According to the New York Times, “about a year ago” in the course of his work towards a masters degree at the military’s health sciences university, Hasan “gave a Power Point presentation…titled ‘Why the War on Terror is a War on Islam.'” The London Telegraph reports he “even told classmates that Islamic law trumped the U.S. Constitution.”
And what did the U.S. army do about it?
They promoted him
