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.
