U.S. Islamists Congratulate Fort Hood Murderer, Urge Muslim Soldiers to Follow His Example

A U.S. based jihadi forum has issued a statement calling Nidal Hasan a hero and urged Muslims in the U.S. Army to follow his lead and attack their fellow soldiers:

We hope other “Muslims” in the US army repent from their apostasy and take [Nidal Hasan] as a role model, instilling fear in the enemies of Allah and taking them by surprise wherever they may be
The statement also condemns Muslims in the West for speaking out against the attack.

Well, I can't exactly call this shocking. The forum is overtly supportive of al Qaeda, so why not support the man who murdered so many at Fort Hood in the name of Allah?

The Ansar al-Mujahideen forum is hosted in Brussels, but the English side of the forum is run out of the US. It is internet based, which means that its editorial staff is decentralized, but we do know that North Carolina's Samir Khan helps run it. His blog is now hosted by them, he uses it to distribute his internet magazine, and his clique of friends and al Qaeda fellow travelers congregate there.

To be honest, I've been scratching my head as to why Samir "Inshallahshaheed" (a martyr, God willing) "Abu Risasas" Khan hasn't commented on the shooting. The last post any one put up over at his blog was on the 16th, and the only word on Nidal Hasan has been his reposting of a WaPo article on Anwar al-Awlaki's support of Hasan.

Olly olly oxen free, Sammy! Come out, come out wherever you are!

Samir doesn't officially take credit for the statement, but it looks like his work. But given his other treasonous writings, why not take credit?

I think the answer is twofold. First, inasmuch as this statement is about as far over the line of sedition as they come -- they actually urge others to follow in Hasan's footsteps -- I think he's afraid of legal repurcussions. We all know that no one at the Justice Department has the guts to try a traitor like Samir for sedition, but to the paranoid mind U.S. agents are constantly on the prowl to arrest Muslims for far less.

The second reason I think will become clearer as Hasan's internet connections are made public.

Here are some highlights. I'll reproduce the entire statement below the fold.

We issue this statement in support of the actions of brother Nidal Malik Hassan; as a congratulations for his brave and heroic deed .... May Allah make you an example for others to follow. ....

[Muslims in the US in] no way are to condemn Nidal Malik Hasan or his actions, ... Rather, all Muslims are to regard [Hasan] as a brother and Mujahid who risked his life in avenging the weak and oppressed Muslims around the world....

In conclusion, we again congratulate all Muslims, especially those in the United States, and especially our heroic brother Nidal Malik Hasan, for indeed he has raised our heads and made us proud. He realized the truth about the “war on terror”, and waged his own war on terror. When he realized the sin of being in the army, and when he came to know he may be sent overseas to fight Muslims, he instead chose to fight those who truly deserved to be fought. He risked his life to show that the Muslim Ummah is one Ummah indeed, and that Muslims must target their enemies wherever they may be, even in their own lands. We hope other “Muslims” in the US army repent from their apostasy and take him as a role model, instilling fear in the enemies of Allah and taking them by surprise wherever they may be.

Shocking? Not so much. In fact, par for the course.

Also par for the course? The lawyerly class running our government calling this "free speech". I wonder what FDR would have to say to those people?

Thanks to Stable Hand.

The entire statement follows. I'll only comment that you should notice that the assumption here is that of infidels fighting the Muslims. The Muslims defined as al Qaeda and the Taliban, but not the many thousands of Muslims fighting against them in the armies of Iraq, Afghanistan, or Pakistan.

In the Name of Allah. All praise is due to Allah, and may peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, and upon his family, companions, and those who follow his footsteps till the day of Judgment.

To proceed:
We issue this statement in support of the actions of brother Nidal Malik Hassan; as a congratulations for his brave and heroic deed, as well as the jealousness he displayed for the pains suffered by the Muslim Ummah as a result of the modern Zionist-Christian Crusades against it. May Allah reward you brother Nidal. We ask Allah to accept this great feat of yours and make you an example for others to follow.

We also issue this statement due to the unfortunate yet expected wave of apologetic statements being given around the world which smack of apostasy, especially in the land of the Lead Crusaders, the United States of America, the likes of which are only given either to safeguard their worldly gains from living there, due to their misguidance and ignorance of firm principles which they easily throw away based on their false concepts of “general interest”, or due to the verdicts of misguided or evil scholars.

On this point we briefly state the following:

* The general principle is that it is not allowed for the Muslims to live permanently in the lands of the infidels. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

« أنا بريء من كل مسلم يقيم بين ظهراني المشركين...»
“I am free of every Muslim who lives amongst the polytheists…”

* There are scholars who have stated its permissibility, but with the condition that the Muslim is able to practice the tenets of his religion properly, from the most important of which is matters of alliance and disavowal (al-wala’ wal-bara’ - the clear declaration of alliance with the believers and enmity and disassociation from the disbelievers). For most people living amongst the polytheists, this is not something possible.
* It is not permissible for Muslims to aid the infidels in any way in war against the Muslims, whether physically, morally, financially, or strategically. There is a consensus amongst the scholars that whoever does so, even by a mere gesture, has committed an act of apostasy and has left the fold of Islam, based upon the verse:

۞ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَتَّخِذُوا الْيَهُودَ وَالنَّصَارَىٰ أَوْلِيَاءَ ۘ بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاءُ بَعْضٍ ۚ وَمَن يَتَوَلَّهُم مِّنكُمْ فَإِنَّهُ مِنْهُمْ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ
O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as allies, they are but allies to one another. If any amongst you allies them, then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people who are the wrong-doers. (Al-Ma’idah: 51)

Joining the infidel armies is one of the worst forms of this aid.
* The actions of Nidal Malik Hasan were not contrary to the religion of Islam, rather they are encouraged by it, for no covenant exists between Muslims in the U.S. and the U.S. government and army. If there was initially some covenant, that covenant is now void due to the various crimes the United States has committed to break it, from them engaging in war with the Muslims, imprisoning Muslims, and by the rape and abuse of Muslim men and women to name a few.
* If one does hold the opinion that the covenant stands, they in no way are to condemn Nidal Malik Hasan or his actions, as there are legitimate scholars and opinions which state otherwise. Rather, all Muslims are to regard him as a brother and Mujahid who risked his life in avenging the weak and oppressed Muslims around the world, who based his actions on valid and legitimate texts and opinions of scholars. Even if he had not based his actions on valid opinions and indeed was mistaken, the most which would be said that he made a mistake, and that the sin of the infidels was much worse than his mistake, as Allah said in the Qur'an:

﴿يَسْأَلُونَكَ عَنِ الشَّهْرِ الْحَرَامِ قِتَالٍ فِيهِ قُلْ قِتَالٌ فِيهِ كَبِيرٌ وَصَدٌّ عَن سَبِيلِ اللّهِ وَكُفْرٌ بِهِ وَالْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ وَإِخْرَاجُ أَهْلِهِ مِنْهُ أَكْبَرُ عِندَ اللّهِ وَالْفِتْنَةُ أَكْبَرُ مِنَ الْقَتل﴾

They ask you concerning fighting in the Sacred Months. Say, "Fighting therein is a great (transgression) but a greater (transgression) with Allah is to prevent humankind from following the Way of Allah, to disbelieve in Him, to prevent access to the Sacred Mosque, and to drive out its inhabitants, and fitnah is worse than killing…” (‘Al-Baqarah: 217)

This was revealed in regards to a group of Muslims who killed some polytheists of Makkah during the sacred months in which fighting was forbidden. Al-Qurtubi said:

Mujahid and others said that the word fitnah here means disbelief, meaning, “your disbelief is worse than our killing them.” The majority said, “The meaning of fitnah here is putting Muslims through trials which may turn them away from Islam and be destroyed,” and that this is a greater crime than their killing in the forbidden months.

If one reads and ponders over the event mentioned, they will find many benefits indeed.

* We warn all Muslims, both individuals and organizations, to fear Allah in the views they hold and statements they make in regards to the validity of Nidal’s actions, the character of our brother, and the correct Islamic views in relation to matters of this sort. They must be very careful that they do not knowingly or unknowingly fall into disbelief and apostasy.

In conclusion, we again congratulate all Muslims, especially those in the United States, and especially our heroic brother Nidal Malik Hasan, for indeed he has raised our heads and made us proud. He realized the truth about the “war on terror”, and waged his own war on terror. When he realized the sin of being in the army, and when he came to know he may be sent overseas to fight Muslims, he instead chose to fight those who truly deserved to be fought. He risked his life to show that the Muslim Ummah is one Ummah indeed, and that Muslims must target their enemies wherever they may be, even in their own lands. We hope other “Muslims” in the US army repent from their apostasy and take him as a role model, instilling fear in the enemies of Allah and taking them by surprise wherever they may be.

And our final prayer is: All praise be to Allah, the Lord of all that exists.
