This A7 story is very interesting in a very significant way. On the face of it, this story appears to just summarize the horrible, vicious, and evil crime unleashed upon American troops by a Jihadist Arab-American US Army Major, Nidal Malik Hasan (may his name be a curse for eternity), who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded over 30 while shouting “Allah Aukbar!” But the story has some interesting information I have not seen published elsewhere.
Primarily the last sentence of the article really got my attention: “Hasan’s brother, who was visiting the United States, hastily returned to his Al-Bireh home after the murders.”
Let me see . . . The US authorities are trying to see if the maniac mass murderer worked alone, or was supplied weapons and information from terrorist “handlers” from abroad. His “dear brother” comes from arab terrorist occupied Israel for a “visit” just before the murders, and hastily beats a retreat as soon as the murders happen.
Interesting coincidence, don’t you think? Wouldn’t it be normal behavior for his brother to have stuck around to see whether his dear brother would rise from his coma and live to see another day? Don’t you think it would be normal behavior for his brother to be there to support and encourage his parents and the rest of the family in a time of great pain and anguish? Don’t you think it would be normal behavior for the brother to take some responsibility upon himself for the protection of his parents, to assist in hiring lawyers, to stand by his father to support him, to simply BE THERE?
For him to “hastily return to his Al-Bireh home” sounds, well . . . a bit suspicious to me. (And, by the way, wasn't it reported that Nidal Malik Hasan [may his name be a curse for eternity] was an American born soldier, and that his parents lived here? Why does his brother live in Al-Bireah???)
Just letting my mind wander here for a moment . . . Al-Bireah is a Hamas Stronghold. In the 2005 elections, 9 of the 15 members of the town council were elected from Hamas, and the Al-Bireah mayor’s car was attacked, just over a year ago, in Ramalla by Fatah-affiliated gunmen because he is a Hamas leader
OK, so “bro” comes from Hamas strong-hold to visit psychiatrist brother, psychiatrist brother goes on Jihadist rampage.
In a strangely sooth-seeing article from the TIME magazine, reporting on Hamas’ reach into Afghanistan, TIME magazine reported on October 30, 2009:
- Hamas is expanding its operations out of the narrow Israeli theater. Jordanian security officials tell Time that two Hamas agents recently traveled to Afghanistan to recruit the remnants of al-Qaeda's network to join its operations in the Arab world. The Jordanians say this spells danger for many countries in the Middle East, especially since a growing number of Hamas leaders now argue that the best way to strike Israel is to attack U.S. targets in Arab countries. A choice venue for such attacks, they say, would be Iraq, where Hamas would find local groups willing to cooperate in attacks on occupying forces.
Yes, TIME, apparently locals did cooperate in attacking “occupying forces”--in the name of Nadal Malik Hasan (may is name be a curse for eternity) with, perhaps, his brother serving as courier for the information that the time to attack had come. Did the brother, upon realizing that his brother had survived, leave quickly for fear that the plot would be known once he gained consciousness?
But, of course, this is all just my mind wandering . . .
‘Devout Muslim’ Psychiatrist Massacred 13 US Soldiers
by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
(IsraelNN.com) The man who pulled the trigger and massacred 13 U.S. army soldiers Thursday and wounded 30 others is the grandson of Arabs from Samaria, a devout Muslim psychiatrist and a U.S. army officer who screamed, “Allah Akbar” (Arabic for Allah is the Greatest) before he fired. The attack ended after he was seriously wounded, and he is in intensive care at an army hospital.
He was identified at Major Nidal Malkik Hasan, whose cousin said became stricter in his devotion to Islam after his mother died nine years ago. The murder at the Fort Hood, Texas base, the largest in the United States, is the worst Muslim-related attack in the country since the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001.
An aftershock of the massacre is the revelation that many warning signs were clear before he began his shooting spree, and Texas Senator Bailey Hutchinson said that investigators are examining if "there is something more than just one deranged person” involved in the episode. It is not yet known if Hasan was able to gain possession of his two non-military semi-automatic handguns weapons without outside assistance.
Either Hasan or someone with the same name began posting on websites six months ago that suicide bombers might be characterized as soldiers who save their comrades by throwing themselves over grenades. At approximately the same time, he was transferred from the Walter Reed Army Medical Center to Fort Hood
A classmate of Hasan in a master’s program last year described him as “Muslim first and an American second.” One Islamic extremist website has claimed he was hero who "killed no less than 12 Crusade foreigners” and sowed “terror and chaos in the ranks of the enemy.”
Muslims in the United States immediately expressed fears of a backlash. His grandfather in Al-Bireh, located next to Ramallah in Samaria, told Reuters, "America made him what he is. Whether he became angry or something else, I don't know."
Blogger Robert Salaam, a former U.S. marine who converted to Islam, wrote, “I know that my fellow non-Muslim Americans would love to see me leave my country. I wonder where they would like me to go.”
Hasan's brother, who was visiting the United States, hastily returned to his Al-Bireh home after the murders.
