Robert Spencer in PJ Lifestyle: 5 Things You Should Know About the Latest Military Jihadist

Muhammad-Abdullah-HassanIn PJ Lifestyle today I draw five lessons from the strange case of Muhammad Abdullah Hassan, formerly John Thomas Booker, who recently wrote: “I am going to wage jihad and hopes that i die.”

The story was overshadowed by Wednesday’s shooting at Fort Hood, but last Monday Fox News revealed that the FBI and the U.S. military had issued an alert for a Muslim former Army recruit who was planning a “Fort Hood-inspired jihad against U.S. soldiers.” This was more than just an eerie foreshadowing of the Wednesday shooting, although the story almost immediately got murky: on Tuesday the FBI responded to the Fox story with more or less a full denial, declaring that there was no manhunt and that the Muslim recruit named in the alert was not a threat. Nonetheless, enough details emerged to reveal some key facts:

5. Conversion to Islam can make a military man into a traitor.

The would-be Fort Hood-style jihadist was John Thomas Booker, a convert to Islam who now goes by the name Muhammad Abdullah Hassan. According to the alert that the FBI and U.S. military distributed, Hassan was,

“recruited by the U.S. Army in Kansas City, Mo., in February 2014 and was scheduled to report for basic training on April 7. But he was discharged last week, apparently after law enforcement authorities learned of his alleged plan.”

The alert didn’t make clear whether Booker was already Hassan when he was recruited into the Army, or whether he converted while in the Army, but unless he entered the Army with the intention of subverting it and killing American soldiers, he probably entered the military with at least some patriotic sentiment, all of which he lost as he learned about his new faith.

In this Hassan resembles last month’s military jihadist, Ased Abdur-Raheem, formerly Nicholas Teausant, a member of the Army National Guard who called for respect for the military uniform just three days before he was arrested, and almost a year after he wrote on Instagram,

“don’t get me wrong I despise america and want its down fall but yeah haha. Lol I been a part of the army for two years now and I would love to join Allah’s army but I don’t even know how to start.”

This change may be because Islam calls for loyalty to the umma, the global Islamic community, above all other loyalties, and teaches (in the words of the twentieth-century Pakistani Islamic scholar and politician, Maulana Maududi) that non-Muslims have “absolutely no right to seize the reins of power in any part of God’s earth nor to direct the collective affairs of human beings according to their own misconceived doctrines.” If they do, “the believers would be under an obligation to do their utmost to dislodge them from political power and to make them live in subservience to the Islamic way of life.”

Such words can turn an American soldier into an America-hating jihadist….

2. The U.S. military makes no serious attempt to determine if Muslim recruits might be jihadists.

Army officials stated that Muhammad Abdullah Hassan never said anything anti-American while he was being recruited, and that was apparently enough for them. There is no indication that the military makes any serious attempt to determine the views, allegiances and loyalties of Muslim soldiers.

Indeed, to do so would be “Islamophobic.” Perish the thought! Instead, the military is anxious to find and showcase Muslim personnel – so anxious that, as I reveal in my book Arab Winter Comes to America: The Truth About the War We’re In, Nidal Malik Hasan rose swiftly through Army ranks even as he justified jihad-martyrdom suicide bombing and spouted hatred for America. In an evaluation dated March 13, 2009, a bit less than eight months before his jihad attack, Hasan’s superiors stated that his “unique insights into the dimensions of Islam” and his “moral reasoning” could be of “great potential interest and strategic importance to the U.S. Army.”

A July 1, 2009 report noted that Hasan had “a keen interest in Islamic culture and faith and has shown capacity to contribute to our psychological understanding of Islamic nationalism and how it may relate to events of national security and Army interest in the Middle East and Asia.” He did indeed contribute to our psychological understanding of Islamic nationalism, on November 5, 2009, as he shouted “Allahu akbar” and began shooting.

Nor did his shooting change anything. Army Chief of Staff George Casey even said that barring Muslims from the military or subjecting them to additional scrutiny would be worse than the massacre itself:

“Our diversity, not only in our Army, but in our country, is a strength. And as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse.”

Casey will get what he wants: diversity in the military, along with its inevitable byproduct, more Fort Hood-style jihad massacres….

There is more. Read the rest here.

      EXACTLY! It’s time for the military psychs to devise a test that will expose the jihadists.

    • Free Speech says

      Know? In the new military, there are no enemies, apparently. They can’t even say “Islam” much less associate it with anything but teddy bears and rose petals.

    • Alarmed Pig Farmer says

      If the military doesn’t know the enemy, then we will lose the war.

      But ya gotta admit, Dog, that the eyesight of the Jews has also gotten cloudy. Only a few years ago the elites in Israel had talked themselves into serious consideration of ceding the Heights to Bashir. Not to mention the inexplicable giveaways of the Sinai, then the Bank, and most recently the Strip.

      I watched in horror as those moves were made, and all have failed miserably. But Carolyn Glick’s new book indicates a revised attitude among the Jews, there at least, a new view of Moslems and the limited alternatives in dealing with them. Read Spengler’s review of the book over a PJMedia.com.

      Muhammad Abdullah Hassan, formerly John Thomas Booker, who recently wrote: “I am going to wage jihad and hopes that i die.”

      Which brings us to the subject of Jannat, the Moslem porno heaven. Other spiritual belief systems make other promises, the Hindus perpetual lives where your behavior can take you up down over time, the Judeo-Christians a place in the sky where the good have attained a joyful fusion into the eons, still alive with understanding and grace.

      Meanwhile, or at the Moslem heaven, they have thrones separated by rivulets of flowing wine, cheese plates, piles of eleven year old girls, and even eleven year old boys like hidden pearls for the war hero Jannat-dweller who swings that way. After all, they got into Jannat in the first place cuz they murdered multi-lifers and grace-in-skyers for the crime of not believing in Islam, including the Jannat thing. Pedophilia perpetual, with Cialis and good eats to keep the action moving, both on the ground and up by the thrones.

      That’s quite a comparison. Jannat motivates far better than our heaven, and getting people motivated and put under good management is always critical.

    • Shane says

      Yes, when you have gutless politicians like Army Chief of Staff George Casey making idiotic politically correct statements that Muslims should not get extra scrutiny, you know the USA is in big trouble. Of course, Muslims should get extra scrutiny as we are at war with Islamic jihad terrorists.

  1. CogitoErgoSum says

    Service in the U.S. military is purely voluntary. The draft was abolished years ago and there is no requirement to join. However, if a person does join, there is a requirement to take an Oath of Enlistment (for the enlisted) or an Oath of Office (for Officers). See the link below. If you do not agree with the words contained within the required oath, you should NOT join the U.S. military. If your religious beliefs change sometime after taking the oath, you should be honorable enough to abide by the oath until your term of service is ended and then leave the military. I have no sympathy or regard for any member of the U.S. military who breaks his/her oath or becomes a traitor to the country and then uses religion as justification.

      … there is a requirement to take an Oath of Enlistment (for the enlisted) or an Oath of Office (for Officers).

      There is also the Oath of Citizenship taken by Somali Moslems as they migrate to Boston and Eden Prairie. And how about the oath taken by Rep Keith Ellison with his hand on Jefferson’s copy of the Holy Ko-Ran? And the best fake oath spectacle in recent times, and there are many, was the sight of seeing Barack Hussein Obama and Eric Holder standing erect and solemn hand over the Bible.

      Now we know for sure that Barack and Eric are both liars, and that’s a fact. Their oaths were lies, too.

    “I am going to wage jihad and hopes that i die.”

    … for his PASSPORT to ‘paradise’, i.e. Muhammad’s bordello to the sadist 4:56 Allah, Q9:111 “slay and are slain” for promised paradise “that is the archivement supreme” & the “best example” Muhammad, Bukhari Vol. 4, Book 52, No. 72 ‘…Our Prophet told us about the message of our Lord that “Whoever amongst us is killed (as a martyr “be maryred ten times”, “Mujahid”) will go to Paradise.”…’

    Allah, Q9:39 “If you march not forth (to jihad 9:38), He will punish you with a painful torment and will REPLACE you by another people (wo will get a “reward of great value” 4:74 & a “special reward” 4:95), and you cannot harm Him at all, and Allah is Able to do all things.”

      very funny

      However, we should boycott as many items as possible that indirectly fund Islamic terrorism.

      Zebra ballpoint pens (Indonesia)
      Men’s dress shirts at JC Penny (Various Islamic countries)
      Coffee labeled JAVA or Sumatra (Indonesia)
      — Notice how coffee shops began obscuring country of origin after 911
      Kabob fast food vendors or anything halal
      The list goes on …

        … I picked out a “new” shirt that I needed for a social function … The label said, “Made in Pakistan” … I immediately put it back … … SP OX …

  4. John Spielman says

    This propensity for murder-suicide by followers of Muhammad is due to the evil works righteous theology inherent in Islam that does not give any certainty to ones ability to earn enough good works to counter one’s sins during life. However, there is a way to bypass the requirement for such good works by killing and being killed in warfare against unbelievers! Islam being a doctrine of demons is ideally suited for terror acts to be committed by its adherents in an (vain though it is ) attempt to gain entrance to Mohammed’s brothel in the sky.

  6. Bezelel says

    Native American Indians were not granted citizenship until 1924 because of their loyalty to their tribes rather than the Constitution. Assimilation regardless of origin is supposed to be fundamental immigration policy. Even more so when you put on a UNI-FORM. It is a uniform, not a costume. The military is not a tool for social engineering. Unless we have an anti-american in the WH.

  7. Jay Boo says

    Most of these Jihad converts are probably ‘Closet Homosexuals’
    They wish to wear a dress but hide girly-man tendencies with talk of violent jihad while wearing an (Islamic man-dress)

    Let’s be honest … (without being too explicit)
    No less than three of the standard Islamic prayer positions are Liberace gay
    1 the kneel bend over
    2 the geisha girl
    3 that total submission position (yeah that one)

  8. Thomas says

    The U.S government is on the side of the jihadist. The only way to have peace with Islam is to submit to it. We lost the will to fight it. God help us

    • Free Speech says

      Give me a break. There is no peace with Islam, period, no matter what you do or don’t do. This should be very obvious. Submission is only the beginning of Hell.

    • Alarmed Pig Farmer says

      The U.S government is on the side of the jihadist.

      Worse, so is the educational system, the mass media, and the leaders of the Infidel religions. Add to all that the U.S. Gubmint, and ya got quite a deep hole to dig out of. Deeper even than the well the Persians are anxiously awaiting the Mahdi to rise out of.

      ……………………………..

      I realize you are probably despairing, Thomas, but how can you come to *Jihad Watch* and say that we have all lost our will to fight Islam?

      The brave and stalwart Robert Spencer all by himself disproves that idea.

      And there *is no peace in Islam*. Just look at any Muslim country—as a rule, the more heavily Islamic it is, the more violent, chaotic, and oppressive it is.

      Is Afghanistan, or Yemen, or Somalia “peaceful”?

      Whenever they run out of Infidels to wage violent Jihad against, they target “other sect” Muslims—think Sunni/Shi’ite, Alawite, etc—or anyone they deem “insufficiently Islamic”, *even their fellow Jihadists*.

      We have horrific obstacles to overcome, no doubt about that—not least of which is a “politically correct” society in willful denial of the threat of Islam, and an occupant of the White House who is actually determined to enable Islam.

      That being said, there is no nation in the West with a Muslim population of more than 10%. Here in the US, the Muslim population is *not even 1%*.

      Are we going to *surrender now*? Pardon me, but *F*ck that*.

      Others have faced far worse odds and have prevailed—including the brave Infidels who stood against Islam at the Battle of Poitiers, the Battle of Lepanto, and the Gates of Vienna.

      Don’t despair, and *don’t surrender*.

      We are far, far, better than Islam, and cannot allow our civilized world to fall to the darkness of barbarism *without a damn good fight*.

    “Personally, I don’t trust one Muslim in our military. [I]f they truly are a devout Muslim, and follow the Quran and the Sunnah, then I feel threatened because they’re commanded to kill me.”
    USAAF veteran TN Rep. Steve Womack
    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2011/11/15/tenn-state-rep-i-dont-trust-one-muslim-in-our-military/
    Is Womack mistaken? A “hater”? “Bigoted”? An “Islamophobe”? Hear the Grand Mufti of Egypt, Ali Gomaa, Sunni Islam’s highest authority,
    “Muslims must kill non-muslims wherever they meet them, unless they convert to Islam” (www.LibertyGB.org. Ideology of Killing).

    The taking of the Oath is not an obstacle to muslims, who are authorized by Islam to break oaths, particularly oaths made to kuffar). The would-be jihad mass murderer Times Square bomber, Faisal Shahzad, took the Oath of Allegiance when taking U.S. citizenship: “I sweared”, he told the judge, “But I didn’t mean it.”

    I tried reading the rest of it via both the embedded links.

    No good.

    I then opened a new window, opened up google, googled the title of the article and tried that: again no luck whatsoever, it simply refused to open.

    Something weird is going on.

  11. citycat says

    I don’t know if this is any use, i’m a technophobe.
    It’s to do with only this site i think.
    I downloaded an newer internet explorer that would not go to this site.
    i noticed it is a lighter blue than the original.
    So i deleted the new lighter blue one.
    but the old one got deleted., so then i deleted the new one.
    except the avg didn’t shred it but hid it in the computer, all over the place.
    It was a few times before i sussed to empty the recycle bin rather than shred.
    Eventually i got rid of it and am using chrome.
    Except i have to get the page up before i put the dongle in or else internet explorer appears and has to be deleted.
    while the light blue internet is on the computer chrome won’t even load the site from the page of 10 results and goes to restricted access and no further.
    Without the light blue one all is fine except have to press stop loading on the redirect for the page to load.
    But only on this site does that happen.

      Problems? Try reinstalling a clean copy of your windows operating system. I don’t know what version you are using, but windows 8 has an easy way of doing that without a disk. You will lose anything saved so you would need some back up. I don’t save much, so I do a clean install about every two weeks. By doing that, I don’t need any malware or virus protection. if things start to get funny, I just reinstall, and everything is fine. I had a serious redirect virus I got rid of that way.

        An indictment of the breathtaking stumblebum blithering incompetence of Microsoft, a company with strengths but software not one of them. Its dedication to poor quality is built atop an architectural house of cards, putting cheap at the forefront, having held Intel performance in check for decades now.

    Mahoundians should not be in the military or police force, or anywhere they have access to guns and sharp objects. You never know when a perfectly peaceful Mahoundian will suddenly get overwhelmed with an Allahgasm, and strike out against any passing kuffar.

  13. elisheva14 says

    We are in grave danger already. The world is so mentally “asleep and blind” that they are not able to see the great threat that Islam presents. Recruits to Islam are drawn to it because they need an outlet for the anti-social, violent natures and should all be considered very very dangerous. Nocolai Sennels work needs to be read by all immediately and studied. The Western World today is supporting Terrorism and with their denial of reality are creating a potential for extreme disaster, because they are not opposing the Islamic Ideology. Only a few brave souls are speaking honestly about the great threat on the horizon. Robert Spencer is amazing for what he does.

    Muslims are responsible for 90% of the terrorism attacks on this earth. Deport the Muslims…we can handle the remaining 10% nut cases.

    The would-be Fort Hood-style jihadist was John Thomas Booker, a convert to Islam who now goes by the name Muhammad Abdullah Hassan.
    ……………………………………

    “Muhammad” (after the “Prophet”) and “Abdullah” (slave) are boiler-plate Islam. I wonder if this would-be Jihadist, who specifically wanted to pull off a Ft. Hood-style Jihad attack, named himself after Nidal Malik Hasan?

    Sure, the spelling if different, but I have seen many people make this error, and this particular Jihadi tool is semi-literate at best.

    I think it likely he named himself after his “hero”. *Ugh*.
