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 USÂ 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 Â Nashville home of an Orthodox rabbi. He threw a Molotov cocktail at the house Â but it failed to ignite. Muhammad then drove to an Army recruiting center in Â 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 Â men in Army fatigues standing outside a recruiting station smoking. He opened Â fire, killing Pvt. William Long and wounding Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula. Muhammad Â was stopped and arrested by police a short distance away.
He has been behind bars at the Pulaski County Detention Facility since his Â arrest. Muhammad said he would have killed more soldiers if they had been in Â the parking lot. He told Little Rock detectives that the shooting and killing Â 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 Â Peninsula who wanted to “carry out jihad in America” after Â returning to the United States. Muhammad later told U.S. investigators that Â he planned “to attack Jewish groups and U.S. Army recruiting centers…
- Â Report on Attack from The Investigative Project on Terrorism
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!Â
LET’SÂ TRYÂ TOÂ REACHÂ OURÂ GOALÂ TODAY!!
DON’T LET THESE MARINES BE FORGOTTEN!
|WHAT IS ANSWER THE CALL AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Every Â summer, Move America Forward spends a month focusing on supporting one Â particular unit deployed in Afghanistan. We select this unit based on the Â difficulty of their mission and the danger level in the region of Afghanistan Â in which they are fighting.
We have selected 800 Marines from the 2nd MEFÂ to support and Â we’ll continue raising money until we have enough to send support to all 800 Â of these troops, who are operating in 2 of the most dangerous provinces in Â Afghanistan.
We have currently raised enough to help about 736 of the Marines, but that Â means we’re still short by 64!Â
Are we really going to allow 64 Marines to go without support?
There must be enough people out there willing to help our Marines!Â We Â can reach our goal today if people really step it up with another donation!
The 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force
THEÂ USMCÂ 2nd MEFÂ 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!
HELPÂ USÂ REACHÂ OURÂ GOALÂ TODAY!
WEÂ HAVEÂ ALMOSTÂ ENOUGHÂ TOÂ HELPÂ ALLÂ 800!
