Muslim Terrorist Guns Down Army Recruiter 3 Years Ago

Move America Forward | June 3, 2012 

It was three years ago today, on June 1, 2009, that Muslim convert Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad carried out a terrorist attack in Little Rock, Arkansas that took the life of a US Army Private and injured another to within an inch of his life.

He was born as Carlos Bledsoe, but after converting to Islam in college he took the name Abdulhakim Muhammad and went to live in Yemen where he worked, took a Yemeni wife, and consorted with Al-Qaeda and other extremists groups on how to kill Americans and wage jihad on the west. After living in Yemen for 2 years, he was deported back to the United States for overstaying his visa.

After returning to the US, Abdulhakim plotted to kill Americans:

Muhammad drove from Memphis to what he believed was the   Nashville home of an Orthodox rabbi. He threw a Molotov cocktail at the house   but it failed to ignite. Muhammad then drove to an Army recruiting center in   Florence, Ky. to carry out an attack, but found it closed.

Frustrated, Muhammad he went back to Little Rock on June 1, 2009. He saw two   men in Army fatigues standing outside a recruiting station smoking. He opened   fire, killing Pvt. William Long and wounding Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula. Muhammad   was stopped and arrested by police a short distance away.

He has been behind bars at the Pulaski County Detention Facility since his   arrest. Muhammad said he would have killed more soldiers if they had been in   the parking lot. He told Little Rock detectives that the shooting and killing   of soldiers at the recruiting center was an act of jihad and not murder.

…He has since proclaimed himself a member of al-Qaida in the Arabian   Peninsula who wanted to “carry out jihad in America” after   returning to the United States. Muhammad later told U.S. investigators that   he planned “to attack Jewish groups and U.S. Army recruiting centers…

This heartless terrorist has never apologized for what he did, never recognized that it was wrong or repented from his radical ideology. This radical interpretation of the Islamic faith led him to commit murder of an innocent man, and he tried to murder others.

Please remember to pray for the families of those innocents who were killed. And please honor our troops who put their lives on the line to keep us safe from madmen like this! 





Every   summer, Move America Forward spends a month focusing on supporting one   particular unit deployed in Afghanistan. We select this unit based on the   difficulty of their mission and the danger level in the region of Afghanistan   in which they are fighting.

We have selected 800 Marines from the 2nd MEF to support and   we’ll continue raising money until we have enough to send support to all 800   of these troops, who are operating in 2 of the most dangerous provinces in   Afghanistan.

We have currently raised enough to help about 736 of the Marines, but that   means we’re still short by 64! 

Are we really going to allow 64 Marines to go without support?

There must be enough people out there willing to help our Marines! We   can reach our goal today if people really step it up with another donation!


The 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force

THE USMC 2nd MEF is a group of Marine combat teams “responsible for ground operations” the very dangerous Helmand and Nimruz provinces, and surrounding areas. These are two areas where the Taliban has been very active historically, and this summer shows no sign of bucking the trend!
