SUDDEN JIHAD SYNDROME IN AMERICA: Documented cases since 911
JEFFHEAD.COM - Suddden Jihad Syndrome in America ^ | November 22, 2009 | Jeff Head

Posted on 11/22/2009 12:46:04 PM PST by Jeff Head


SUDDEN JIHAD SYNDROME (SJS): Sudden Jihad Sundrome is individual or small, un-attached groups of radicalized Islamics who decide to carry out Jihad, or Holy War, against those amongst whom they live. It usually involves a single person, but may include small groups, who are radicalized in their Mosques, their readings, their conversations, or otherwise, and who then decide on their own to wage war against those whom they live amongst.
It is a very real and very dangerous occurance that a nation ignores, or tries to explain away with other politically correct or sociological explanations at their grave peril and risk. What follows are instances of SJS within the US since 9/11/2001. This list will be added to as more are discovered to have happened, or as new instances occur.

SITE/LIST LAST UPDATED : November 20, 2009


This list represents the most publicized of the SJS events in America. There are undoubtedly many more. Many of these events have been attempted to be explained away by politicians and the media as acts of insanity or mentally disturbed individuals, where the tie and link to Islamic Jihad is either not reported or ignored...and this, in many cases when the perpetrator themself indicate that this is what their attack was about, waging Jihad against America and American citizens.

The following are several instance of quotes, letters, and emails from the perpetrators. Many of these individuals, according to testimony of witnesses at the time, were heard to shout, "Allahu Akbar,” as the committed their acts of terror and Jihad, which means, "God is Great," and is a known cry of Islamic Jihad terrorists around the world.



From: Charles Bishra (Bishop), who crashed a Cessna aircraft into the Bank of America tower in Tampa, FL.

"First of all, Osama bin Laden is absolutely justified in the terror he has caused on 9-11. He has brought a mighty nation to its knees! God blesses him and the others who helped make September 11th happen

"The U.S. will have to face the consequences for its horrific actions against the Palestinian people and Iraqis by its allegiance with the monstrous Israelis -- who want nothing short of world domination!

"You will pay -- God help you -- and I will make you pay!

"There will be more coming! Al Qaeda and other organizations have met with me several times to discuss the option of me joining. I didn't.

"This is an operation done by me only. I had no other help, although I am acting on their behalf."




From: Lee Mlavo who wrote the following during the trial for his part in the Beltway (and other) sniper killings.

"We will kill them all. Jihad . . . Allah Akbar!

“Our minarets are our bayonets, Our mosques are our baracks, Our believers are our soldiers.”




From: Sgt. Hasan Akbar, after his attack and from his diary, who attacked his own US Armny comrades on the eve of battle in Iraq.

"I do not like the military. They have too much control over people's lives. I suppose I am just anti-government…. A Muslim should see himself as a Muslim only. His loyalty should be to Islam only."

"I will have to decide to kill my Muslim brothers fighting for Saddam Hussein or my battle buddies.

"I may not have killed any Muslims, but being in the Army is the same thing. I may have to make a choice very soon on who to kill.

"You guys are coming into our countries, and you're going to rape our women and kill our children.

"I am not going to do anything about it as long as I stay here. But as soon as I am in Iraq, I am going to try and kill as many of them as possible," speaking in his diary of his fellow soldiers.




From: Mohammed Taheri-azar who drove his SUV into students on the UNiversity of North Carolina campus.

"In the name of Allah, the merciful, the compassionate.

"I am writing this letter to inform you of my reasons for premeditating and attempting to murder citizens and residents of the United States of America on Friday, March 3, 2006 in the city of Chapel Hill, North Carolina by running them over with my automobile and stabbing them with a knife if the opportunities are presented to me by Allah.

"I did intend to use a handgun to murder the citizens and residents of Chapel Hill, North Carolina but the process of receiving a permit for a handgun in this city is highly restricted and out of my reach at the present, most likely due to my foreign nationality.

"I am a servant of Allah. I am 22 years of age and I was born in Tehran, Iran. My father, mother and older sister immigrated to the United States in 1985 when I was two years of age and I've lived in the United States ever since.

"I attended elementary, middle and high school in North Carolina and I was accepted into the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I began my college career in August 2001 and graduated in December 2005 with a bachelor's degree in psychology and philosophy with Allah's help.

"Due to the killing of believing men and women under the direction of the United States government, I have decided to take advantage of my presence on United States soil on Friday, March 3, 2006 to take the lives of as many Americans and American sympathizers as I can in order to punish the United States for their immoral actions around the world.

"In the Qur'an, Allah states that the believing men and women have permission to murder anyone responsible for the killing of other believing men and women. I know that the Qur'an is a legitimate and authoritative holy scripture since it is completely validated by modern science and also mathematically encoded with the number 19 beyond human ability. After extensive contemplation and reflection, I have made the decision to exercise the right of violent retaliation that Allah has given me to the fullest extent to which I am capable at present.

"I have chosen the particular location on the University campus as my target since I know there is a high likelihood that I will kill several people before being killed myself or jailed and sent to prison if Allah wills. Allah's commandments are never to be questioned and all of Allah's commandments must be obeyed. Those who violate Allah's commandments and purposefully follow human fabrication and falsehood as their religion will burn in fire for eternity in accordance with Allah's will."




From: Major Nidal Hasan who killed 13 and wounded 29 at Ft. Hood, TX.

“It’s getting harder and harder for Muslims in the service to morally justify being in a military that seems constantly engaged against fellow Muslims.

"We love death more than you love life.

"There was a grenade thrown amongst a group of American soldiers. One of the soldiers, feeling that it was too late for everyone to flee, jumped on the grave with the intention of saving his comrades. Indeed he saved them. To say that this soldier committed suicide is inappropriate. It's more appropriate to say he is a brave hero that sacrificed his life for a more noble cause. Scholars have paralleled this to suicide bombers whose intention, by sacrificing their lives, is to help save Muslims by killing enemy soldiers. If one suicide bomber can kill 100 enemy soldiers because they were caught off guard that would be considered a strategic victory.

"Muslims should stand up and fight the aggressor, we should not be in the war in the first place. Maybe people should strap bombs on themselves and go to Time Square," he told another officer after the Little Rock Arnasas shooting of two Army recruited by a fellow Muslim.

"I'm going to do good work for God," he told a neghbor the day of the shootings as he gave her a Koran and left fo the base.


Can there be any dount about the motivation of these individuals? There absolutely can not.

We must demand that our elected and appointed representatives and officials respond seriously and appropriately to this Jihad within our own country. Ignoring it is not an option. Being politically correct about it is not an option. Trying to call it something other than what it is is not an option. American citizens are being killed and maimed by the enemy within our own borders and we must call it exactly what it is and respond directly and forthrightly.

Any Mosque, any Imamm, and Muslim who teaches and promotess Jihad against America is not practising religion...they are engaging in open war and treason against these United States. We welcome religous folks whose basis is fumdamental moral principle, and who respects our God-given rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We reject totalitariansm and tyranny, whatever the source.

And while we're at it...Mr. President, do an absolute, 180 degree ABOUT FACE on the monstrociy you have proposed to try foreign, irregular terrorists in on our soil in U.S. courts!

You’re welcome. 46 dead, 110 injured by this count. It’s probably higher...and does not include the wretched, murderous practise of killing their own wives and daughters.

BUsh had his fair share of problems and things I disagreed strongly on. And our borders and the PC attitude towards the Religion of Peace were some of them...not to mention CFR, etc.

Having said that, he did take the war to our enemies and have them hiding in holes as far as the larger foreign terror organizations go.

What is happening with SJS, however, is something that all of us must concern ourselves with. Islamic Jihad terrorists, irrespective of their source, want to kill us all.

46 Dead can't ever jump again. 110 injured and maimed are not likely to.

Obama and his administration, particularly with their monsterous plan to bring the foreign terrorists here for trial, act more in league with those supporting these jihadists than they act like Americans fighting them.

I don't know why this is such a surprise. Salafist double-domers have been writing about "Gen 3/Gen 4 War" for a dozen years now. The antidote would seem to be mass exclusion and/or mass expulsion of Islamists, esp. Wahhabists, from the territory of the United States. They will keep doing this until actively suppressed, and people in authority won't face up to it.

Was the Fort Hood Massacre an Example of 'Freelance JIHAD?'

By Randy Sly
Catholic Online (www.catholic.org)
11/8/2009

Major Nidal Malik Hasan remains in a coma and his motives remain in that darkness. However, it does appear ominous.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Catholic Online) – Only minutes after the bloody assault at the Soldier Readiness Center (SRC), Fort Hood, Texas, the media was buzzing with news that the gunman, Army psychiatrist Major Nidal Malik Hasan, was a devout Muslim. Before opening fire, first-hand accounts reported he yelled, “Allahu Akbar” meaning “God is greatest.”

While officials were reluctant to explain any possible motivation behind the killings, news of Hasan’s background and activities earlier in the day began to form a consistent pattern of behavior.

Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch reported that the online magazine “Sada al-Malahim” Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) leader Nasir al-Wahayshi released an article calling jihadists to initiate simple attacks on random targets. In the article, he described these targets as "any crusaders whenever you find one of them, like at the airports of the crusader Western countries that participate in the wars against Islam, or their living compounds, trains etc…"

Spencer’s article was quick to ask the obvious question – was Hasan’s attack a response to this invitation. Was it “freelance jihad?”

As the day wore on, further issues and behaviors were uncovered regarding the Army doctor that seemed to underscore the possibility of this motive.

Here are just a few things that have been released, providing a clearer picture of the gunman’s actions and mindset just prior to his attack at Fort Hood:

1. Spencer posted a confirming report from KSL-TV concerning the beginning of the attack. In the online report a father recounts the conversation he had just had with his daughter, who was stationed at Fort Hood and at the SRC during the attack. The daughter told her father that the man shouted “Allah Akbar” before opening fire.

2. The Associated Press (AP) reported that Hasan argued with fellow soldiers who supported U.S. war policy.

3. They also reported that at least six months ago Hasan came to the attention of law enforcement officials. Although not yet confirmed, they suspected that he was the author of some Internet postings about suicide bombings and other possible threats.

4. Also, according to the AP, that morning he called a friend to thank him for his friendship.

5. At Jihad Watch, Spencer posted a story from Justin Blum at Bloomberg as follows:

“Nov. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the Army psychiatrist accused of killing 13 people and wounding 30 others at the Fort Hood Army Base in Texas, regularly described the war on terror as ‘a war against Islam,’ according to a doctor who was in a graduate program with him.”

6. A YouTube posting by Spencer from CNN showed Hasan at a convenience store earlier in the day of the shooting. In the video, the reporter recounts a conversation between Hasan and the store owner, also a Muslim regarding the doctor’s upcoming deployment. Hasan indicated that fighting fellow muslims was weighing heavily on him.

7. Retired Colonel Terry Lee, a former colleague, told Fox News that while attending a conference Hasan stated that Muslims should stand up and fight against the aggressor. After news of a shooting at a Little Rock recruitment center at an earlier time, he made a similar comment.

8. The Killeen Daily Herald reported that police had secured Hasan’s apartment shortly after the attack and then Bell County SWAT teams evacuated the apartment complex later that day.

According to the Daily Herald, “In the morning, neighbors said Hasan handed Qurans and donated his furniture to anyone who would take it.

“Neighbors described Hasan as a quiet man who began wearing ‘Arabic clothing’ in recent weeks. Edward Windsor, a neighbor, never suspected Hasan was in the Army. Hasan's rank surprised Windsor who would never have imagined an officer with a rank of major would have lived in an apartment that rents for $350 and houses soldiers ranked as private first class.”

On Saturday, the Daily Herald highlighted Hasan’s generosity toward a neighbor, Patricia Villa on the morning of the shootings.

“Hasan's kindness and generosity overwhelmed Villa Thursday morning when he gifted his belongings to decorate her meager apartment at the Casa Del Norte apartments located along North Fourth Street. A few hours later the version of Hasan described on TV shocked her.”

“Hasan paid Villa $60 to clean his apartment Thursday morning, a few hours before the massacre.

“He never left her a key, Villa said. He also gave her a microwave, an air mattress, a steam cleaner and a scale.

“Hasan gave Villa several shirts, two ties and a suit for her husband.”

Robert Spencer made the following observations on his site Jihad Watch regarding the situation.

“…Major Hasan's motive was perfectly clear -- but it was one that the forces of political correctness and the Islamic advocacy groups in the United States have been working for years to obscure. So it is that now that another major jihad terror attack has taken place on American soil, authorities and the mainstream media are at a loss to explain why it happened - and the abundant evidence that it was a jihad attack is ignored.”

Spencer also documents an Internet positing by a person, who gave his name as “Nidal Hasan.” In the post, the writer attempts to show that a suicide bomber has the same motivation as a soldier who throws himself on a grenade to save his comrades.

“Scholars have paralled this to suicide bombers whose intention, by sacrificing their lives, is to help save Muslims by killing enemy soldiers. If one suicide bomber can kill 100 enemy soldiers because they were caught off guard that would be considered a strategic victory. Their intention is not to die because of some despair. The same can be said for the Kamikazees in Japan. They died (via crashing their planes into ships) to kill the enemies for the homeland.”

Some of the reasons put forth for Hasan’s violence have been as strange as they are varied:

CNN reporters pointed to the possibility of racism in an interview with Hasan’s cousin, who said, “There was racism towards him because he's a Muslim, because he's an Arab, because he prays.”

The cousin, however, went on to say, “If he had killed one or two, I could say that he was defending himself. I could say that there could have been a problem between two sides which led to the use of weapons. But for one to kill 13 people and injure more than 30, I personally don't think that it was because someone was bothering him. There is a bigger reason that this happened and no ones knows it besides Nidal.”

Gilbert Mercier, of News Junkie Post, challenges the idea of a terrorist motive. In his article “Will Fort Hood’s Tragedy Trigger An Anti-Muslim Backlash?” Mercier argues that Husan was American born and raised. He attended American schools, although the son of Palestinian immigrants he did not speak Arabic, and joined the Army to receive his medical training.

Somewhat a victim of circumstance, Hasan couldn’t get out of his deployment, let alone the Army since they paid for his education. He was caught.

And as for the attack, he has reservations about the first-hand accounts.

“FBI agents investigating the case are not sure Hasan really said ‘Allahu Akbar’ before he started shooting, but instead suggested that perhaps ‘Soldiers in the mayhem of the moment only imagined Hasan said ‘Allahu Akbar.’”

In his coverage of the events at Fort Hood, “In April 2005, a Muslim serving in the U.S. Army, Hasan Akbar, was convicted of murder for killing two American soldiers and wounding fourteen in a grenade attack in Kuwait. AP reported: ‘Prosecutors say Akbar told investigators he launched the attack because he was concerned U.S. troops would kill fellow Muslims in Iraq. They said he coolly carried out the attack to achieve 'maximum carnage' on his comrades in the 101st Airborne Division.’

“And Hasan's murderous rampage resembles one that five Muslim men in New Jersey tried to carry out at Fort Dix in New Jersey in 2007, when they plotted to enter the U.S. Army base and murder as many soldiers as they could.

That was a jihad plot. One of the plotters, Serdar Tatar, told an FBI informant late in 2006: ‘I'm gonna do it....It doesn't matter to me, whether I get locked up, arrested, or get taken away, it doesn't matter. Or I die, doesn't matter, I'm doing it in the name of Allah.’

“Another plotter, Mohamad Shnewer, was caught on tape saying, ‘They are the ones, we are going to put bullets in their heads, Allah willing.’”

Spencer and Jihad Watch were spotlighted on Saturday by the Associated Press in an article on anti-Muslim backlash. Ironically, the Spencer’s story of a possible jihad was the only example they used to support the claim of a backlash.

Mosques across the country have called for increased police protection in fear of attack. So far, there has been no serious backlash to the actions of Hasan, either toward mosques or other Muslims in the armed services.

While the exact motive will not be known unless Hasan awakes from his coma, the circumstances that surround the massacre at Fort Hood provide compelling evidence that a religious motivation must be seriously considered among the reasons for the killings.

As radical Islamists, such as Al-Qaeda, continue to call for freelance jihad, without vigilance we remain vulnerable to those who embrace this call as their own.

Nice work here, Jeff. I have been thinking for a few days about how to make the case that Ft Hood was another in a series.

Thanks!

Jihad Watch

Al-Qaeda last week called for attacks on "any crusaders whenever you find one of them, like at the airports of the crusader Western countries that participate in the wars against Islam, or their living compounds, trains etc."

Calling for freelance jihad. Just a coincidence, I'm sure. "Counterterrorism: Shifting from 'Who' to 'How,'" by Scott Stewart and Fred Burton for Stratfor, November 4 (thanks to all who sent this in):

In the 11th edition of the online magazine Sada al-Malahim (The Echo of Battle), which was released to jihadist Web sites last week, al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) leader Nasir al-Wahayshi wrote an article that called for jihadists to conduct simple attacks against a variety of targets. The targets included "any tyrant, intelligence den, prince" or "minister" (referring to the governments in the Muslim world like Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Yemen), and "any crusaders whenever you find one of them, like at the airports of the crusader Western countries that participate in the wars against Islam, or their living compounds, trains etc.," (an obvious reference to the United States and Europe and Westerners living in Muslim countries)....

They have been calling for it for a long time, from radical Imams, to Al QUida and othe rorganizations, in radical mosques here in the US and abroad...and if you study it, you will find that they have written about and called for the use of small planes, cars, SUVs, knives, guns, etc. All the things these animals have been using.

Their own words make it absolutely plain and clear what they were doing. It would be comical, as in three stooges kind of comedy, to hear the kind of responses that our officials give in the face of these direct statements...except that it is so deadly, mortally serious.

Jeff, you forgot this one:

Sudden Jihad Syndrome - November 4, 2008

Millions of fools, chumps and snake oil swiggers throw the US Presidential election to Barack Obama based on vacuous promises of Hope and Change, ignoring his muslim upbringing, his questionable citizenship, his racist theology and his ultra-left socialist philosophies.

Might consider adding "A. Ishmael" - the name Cho chose before he shot 57, killing 32.

In addition to sharing Muslim names and committing mass murder of unarmed innocents with Nidal Hasan, they both attended the same school, Viginia Tech, at apparently the same time - Not random chance from where I sit.

Political Correctness: The Scourge of Our Times

Agustin Blazquez with the collaboration of Jaums Sutton

Monday, April 8, 2002

Does anyone know the origins of Political Correctness? Who originally developed it and what was its purpose?

I looked it up. It was developed at the Institute for Social Research in Frankfurt, Germany, which was founded in 1923 and came to be known as the “Frankfurt School.” It was a group of thinkers who pulled together to find a solution to the biggest problem facing the implementers of communism in Russia.

The problem? Why wasn’t communism spreading?

Their answer? Because Western Civilization was in its way.

You were saying ...

In addition to sharing Muslim names and committing mass murder of unarmed innocents with Nidal Hasan, they both attended the same school, Viginia Tech, at apparently the same time - Not random chance from where I sit.

I remember going into that, quite extensively, when it was on Free Republic and digging up all the information and sources on that and its significance and relation to Islam and/or Muslims. The fact of the matter is that it was non-existant -- any information connecting Cho to Islam or Muslim terrorists.

The only (so-called) "connection" is simply that they engage in mass killings of strangers having no direct relation to them -- and that's not an exclusive Muslim distinctive (although they do engage in it).

There's simply not any kind of adequate connection to put Cho in the Muslim terrorist category -- other than sheer speculation and supposition.

Freelance jihad get 30 years

January 8th, 2007
by Theseus

"A Pakistani immigrant was sentenced to 30 years in prison Monday for hatching an unsuccessful plot to blow up a busy Manhattan subway station as revenge for wartime abuses of Iraqis."

Shahawar Matin Siraj attempted a one man jihad op much like Mohammed Taheri-azar who tried to run down half of the UNC-Chapel Hill student body with an SUV last year. Siraj’s sentence does not bode well for jihadi Taheri-azar. They both confessed similiar motives. I would hope that Taheri-azar would get at least life without parole since he carried out his personal jihad.

"The man who hit nine people with a sport utility vehicle on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus wrote a letter to a television reporter saying he read the Quran’s 114 chapters 15 times and found that the Muslim holy book justified the attack."

I have also looked at it pretty extensively. Cho's manifesto and his emails (which there have been tons of them posted) make absolutely no mention of any Islamic Jihad connection.

There was no "Allah Akbar" while he was doing it.

I do not counted the VA Tech massacre as a SJS. Something a whole lot more concrete would have to come up, and at this point I do not expect that is going to happen.

I suppose you voted for Obama, Kerry and Gore? Not that it would surprise me given that make an intellectual leap like that.

Odd - but I'm sure Janet Napolitano is much more concerned about middle class Republicans storming the barricades...

Excellent work, Jeff. If you start a ping list for the update on this, please add me. I want to keep track and I love facts and figures that come all nice and tidy like this so I can be ready for those conversations I have with liberal idiots (oh, that’s right, I’m being redundant).
