Abdo made his priorities — his loyalties — clear well over a year ago. Yet being loyal to one group, in this case Muslims, naturally equates disloyalty to all other groups, such as infidel Americans and their military. Far from cause for surprise, then, his terror plot is consistent, as shown in the following PJM article (via RaymondIbrahim.com):
To anyone familiar with Muslim doctrine, Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo’s actions””from refusing to deploy to Afghanistan lest he kill fellow Muslims, to plotting a terror attack to kill fellow Americans””make perfect sense and accord especially well with Islam’s dichotomous doctrine of wala wa bara, often translated as “loyalty and enmity.”
Built atop numerous Koran verses and backed by Sharia, wala requires Muslims to be loyal to fellow Muslims, and explains why Abdo refused to deploy to Muslin nations.
While loyalty may appear admirable, its flipside, bara, requires Muslims to disassociate themselves from non-Muslims””to have enmity for and be disloyal to them…
For example, Koran 5:51 literally warns Muslims against “taking the Jews and Christians as friends and allies “¦ whoever among you takes them for friends and allies, he is surely one of them,” i.e., he becomes an infidel; 58:22 states that true Muslims do not befriend non-Muslims “” “even if they be their fathers, sons, brothers, or kin.”
Now consider the progress of Abdo and how his actions reveal great doctrinal consistency:
First, over a year ago he objected to participating in any war in any Muslim country, claiming “conscientious objector” status: “I don’t believe I can involve myself in an army that wages war against Muslims. I don’t believe I could sleep at night if I take part, in any way, in the killing of a Muslim. “¦ I can’t deploy with my unit to Afghanistan and participate in the war””I can’t both deploy and be a Muslim.”
He would not be the first to object to combating fellow Muslims: Major Nidal Hasan, who went on a shooting spree in Fort Hood in 2009, killing thirteen””and who Abdo heroizes””considered himself to be “a Muslim first and an American second”; the idea of deploying to a Muslim nation, his “worst nightmare,” threw him “over the edge.” Then there was Sergeant Hasan Akbar, who killed two American soldiers and wounded fourteen in Kuwait “because he was concerned U.S. troops would kill fellow Muslims in Iraq.”….
