At mosque attended by suspect, anger and mourning
The Austin American Statesmen ^ | 11/07/09 | Joshunda Sanders

Posted on 11/07/2009 10:21:56 AM PST by LA Woman3

KILLEEN — Sgt. Fahad Kamal attended prayer services at the Islamic Community of Greater Killeen on Friday just as he has frequently since arriving at Fort Hood seven months ago.

This day, though, the 26-year-old medic, who served in Afghanistan from January 2007 to April 2008, wore his uniform. This day, the devout Muslim from Houston was seeking to strike a far different image than that of Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who is accused of shooting 43 people at Fort Hood on Thursday.

Kamal said he had come to the mosque from a gloomy base, where "soldiers aren't really talking about the shootings because we're trying to move on."

He said his first reaction to the news of shootings was "angry embarrassment," and his concerns echoed those of others in the Central Texas Muslim community, who arrived at services in a somber mood.

"I hope people don't make themselves believe that religion has anything to do with what happened," Kamal said.

Kamal is one of about 40 members of Killeen's close-knit Muslim community. When he arrived to pray at the one-story red brick mosque just off Texas 195 on Fort Hood Street, he and dozens of others quietly dodged a crowd of reporters on the otherwise calm stretch of road.

The 40-minute prayer service included a moment of silence and a passionate condemnation of the shootings from Dr. Manzoor Farooqi, president of the mosque, who called the action a "shameless attack."

Farooqi, who has led the mosque for 12 years, said that he knew Hasan from Ramadan observances but that he had not known him very well.

"When I saw him on television, I thought, 'I can't believe he'd do such a stupid thing,' to be frank," Farooqi said.

"The shootings are devastating and tragic," said Danquah Osman, who is treasurer of the mosque and a liaison between the mosque and Fort Hood. Osman, who has lived in Killeen since 1976, said he served in the Army as a first sergeant for 22 years.

"We're supposed to care for each other in the military," Osman said. "Those victims could have been my sons."

Abdulkarim Hulwe, 45, a retired Army veteran who said he talked to Hasan frequently, said Hasan struck him as a devout but quiet Muslim who tended to go to work early and sometimes prayed at the mosque before work. He said he last saw Hasan at 6:15 a.m. Thursday.

"He just appeared to be an outstanding soldier. He ... always seemed to be on his best behavior," Hulwe said.

As Austin Imam Islam Mossaad said Thursday, when news of the shooting spread, Muslims in Central Texas all hoped that the gunman did not share their faith. But when members of Killeen's Islamic community learned that Hasan had been among them for prayers at Ramadan a couple of months ago, they said it deepened their anxiety that his actions could have a lasting effect on their peace-loving community.

"Islam promotes peace and equality, and violence has nothing to do with that," Kamal said. "I hope that people won't start stereotyping, since that's what people tend to do."

The guy was yelling “allah akbar” when he was killing and maiming unarmed victims. How could it possibly have anything to do with religion?

But they still won’t condemn or speak out on the attack will they?

They’ll just chide the rest of us for “Islamophobia”.

Even if this mosque has never preached hate toward America, don’t tell me that Hasan’s religion had nothing to do with his actions. That is contrary to so many facts in evidence. Was he thinking about unicorns and rainbows while he was shooting his fellow Americans? There has to be some motive for turning against American and his fellow soldiers. The most obvious motive is his devotion to Islam. So go peddle your lies somewhere else. Defend your community if you must. But don’t expect me to believe lies about the shooter.

So, is this place Shiite, Sunni or Wahhabist? Funded in any way by SA? Iran? Hamas? Syria? Pakistan?

Were they advocating violence against Muslims? Or were they simply disagreeing with the MSM spin on this event.

Please don’t make any comments that might put Muslims in a negative light.

That's a lie. There are far more than 40 Muslims in the area. I didn't get out much over (or rather never) there but still knew of several years ago. Not to mention Ft. Hood is the largest base in the world with tens of thousands of soldiers from all races and creeds. Waco is just 30 minutes away has had such a considerable size Muslim community that as far back as 25 years ago, they had a billboard advertising them out on S I-35. The media needs to get it's act together and report straight facts rather than spins.

"When I saw him on television, I thought, 'I can't believe he'd do such a stupid thing,' to be frank," Farooqi said. I wouldn't use stupid as a way to describe a heinous act of multiple murders and mayhem!

Timothy McVeigh was a childhood Catholic. He left the faith and not for a moment would anyone have thought that he was driven by Catholic belief.

Why would Farooqi have any concerns in that department?

I'll answer that. It IS what that dastardly religion/ideology teaches. The only reason it isn't showing its true colors is because it isn't yet in full control!

Snippets are being revealed to us and this is an example!

“…hoped that the gunman did not share their faith…”

Islam is not a faith, it is a military and quasi-political movement that camouflages itself as a religion. Having the ultimate goal of subjugation and domination; that includes destruction of opposing social and Constitutional protections. The big lie, Islam is a religion of peace; empirical proof is contrary to stated philosophies. Furthermore, show me where in the world Islam is; and I will show you a dogma of oppression, a military movement and quasi-governmental structure masquerading as a religion.

Sura (5:33) - “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”

There are only a few types of people who tolerate or promote the filth of Islam, the ignorant, sneaks, cheats and liars. We can thank all such as Obama, a man-child born of corruption.

It won't wash - when this many Muslims are murdering in the name of their religion, it's pointless for other Muslims to claim that it has nothing to do with their religion.

God defeated Allah at Fort Hood.He also did not let Hasan die to gain a seat next to his perverted god. Political Correctness is used to keep America blind to what actually goes on inside a Mujihads heart mind. The left has worked so hard at making sure that America does not see its war against Terror as a religious war, when in fact the enemy sees it as EXACTLY that. A religious war. This is , as Bush said, a war against evil. And evil came to Fort Hood in the form of a jihadi who was in fact possessed by Allah.For me this incident has shades of the movie “Exorcist.” And Good has triumphed, even though so many innocents died. This truth of which we speak needs to me shared with America as much as possible.America needs to know of the evil which it faces, at long last. No matter what the left want to make of it. The religious practice of the Mujihad needs to be explained to every one. There is an inner prayer designed to connect one with the self righteous energy of Allah, who literally takes over the body and mind of the jihadine.Thats what happened here.A kind of Muslim spiritual possession.Hasan was not insane, or deranged. He was just fired up on his prayers and energized.He was executing a religious ritual which he believed would open the gates of heaven for him. The MSM will not properly inform the public about this religious practise of jihadism.It would no longer be just a war on terror,The terrorists could no longer be redefined as “criminals” by Obama , who should be Mirandized with the benefits of due process that Bush had made sure to remove, as deserved.It would be defined as Islamofascism, ,which is exactly what it is. These secret teachings and meditative practises for the jihadist need to be revealed and STOPPED.

And even the Fort Hood Imam knows this, and sits there like a toad, not saying a thing about it.

Bingo. When Christians warn Muslims their religion produces arrogant thinking, Muslims tend to simply equate Christianity as either a comparative religion or a religion of those without conviction to remain devout to God.

Arrogant people rarely ever recognize how their thinking is focused upon their own selves rather than others.

Instead of immediately thinking of the victims, they worry about negative consequences upon them selves. An obvious lack of direction of their faith in anything other than themselves. Arrogance, pure and simple.

"I hope that people won't start stereotyping, since that's what people tend to do."

American Muslims say they are opposed to harming innocent people -- but in the end it's always about protecting American Muslims.

What about our military taking actions to stop future attacks? Wot? That'd be profiling? Oh I get it.

BTW, what does an American Muslim mean by "innocent people." Can't blame the few American Muslims who oppose the Islamists, they'd be risking their lives.

Call this stereotyping.. please!

Ask him his opinion of Israel sometime, or of US Mideast foreign policy, or Jews, or Christians.

I don't mean to spit on your opinion because I treasure it. I am just getting tired of islam. It is a cancer on the world, and all muslims, actively or tacitly, enable it. In fact, every time there is a "Pit-Bull Maims (fill in blank)" article, there are those who chime in that they have the greatest, most harmless pit bull, or neighbor pit bull, etc. In my opinion, with muslims, as with pit bulls, it is not a matter of whether, but of when.

Waco's nearby? There's a kooky Christian religious group.. let's take the public's mind off Islam and put together a group of federal guys -- I know, we'll call it Operation Showtime! -- get some military equipment from Ft. Hood and go after this Christian group! They're a dangerous bunch.

Wot? The government and media would never go after a religious group? and that's why the government and the state controlled American media (SCAM) don't want to bring Islam into all this -- yeah, you're right. It was just a thought.

On Fox News Channel today, there was a note that the Iman at the
terrorist’s mosque said that the MURDERER was happy when he attended
morning prayers on the day of The Fort Hood Massacre.

Well, DUH!!!!!!!!!

The blood-thirsty B@$tard had given away his personal possessions
(a not-uncommon practice for suicides-to-be), had his guns and ammo
at hand...and knew he was headed for 72 virgins/raisins (depending
on the translations, guffaw!!!!!!!).

I praise Providence for the lady (and any comrades) that neutralized
this Islamic Nutburger...but let him live for a long-term sentence
to prison (and impotent paralysis)!!!!!!!!!

I understand, and agree with other posters that this had everything to do with the shooters religion. Most religions have folks that pervert what was intended. I don’t believe that all Muslims are bad. I also understand why they voice fear in the article. Tensions are running high in Killeen. I had people that I care about on Post that day, and my shock and fear have moved into anger with the shooter and Islam. I just wanted you to know that Dr. Farooqi is, in my opinion, a good man. We are only seeing very short exerpts from their service. This article has really caught me off guard.
