Still trying to wrap my brain around the senseless and cowardly act perpetuated on Thursday at Fort Hood, I decided to see what information I could find on Nidal Malik Hasan's spiritual leader, or imam, after he made the announcement on Friday during prayer that Islam bears no responsibility of the acts of Hasan.
"We offer our condolences and prayers to the families that have a person who died," said Imam Mohammed Abdullahi over loud-speakers that carried the weekly Muslim prayer to several hundred worshippers gathered at the mosque in Silver Spring, Maryland, where Hasan was a member.
"Islam is not responsible," he stressed.
Okay...while Islam itself may not be responsible (and those of you who know me know that I don't believe THAT), what about the interpretations of the Quran that these radicals teach in the mosques? Did I just call Abdullahi a "radical?" You bet your sweet ass I did. When you read about this scumbag, you may just agree.
According to the website of the Muslim Community Center (MCC) where Abdullahi is the imam, this teacher of the "religion of peace" holds a diploma in SHARIA from the National Somali University in Mogadishu. How much more radical can that be? The site also says that he provides guidance and support to the community in the matters of Sharia Law. In short, this guy believes women who are raped commit a crime and should be executed.
Abdullahi allegedly started his budding jihadist career at the tender age of 11 when he supposedly memorized the Quran. From there, he went on to study and gain full understanding of hadith (prophetic sayings) and fiqh (Islamic justice). When combined, hadith and fiqh provide the foundation for Sharia Law, according to IslamOnline.net.
Since 1987, Abdullahi has taught at various mosques and madrasahs. That's right. Get them while they're young. But hey...this humanitarian also worked with inmates at the Southern Maryland Pre-Release Unit (SMPRU) where he organized the Islamic Outreach Program. Prisons have become recruitment centers for radical Islam over the years, and it seems that everyone's favorite imam was there to help with the effort. Hell of a guy, eh?
Also in this dirtbag's illustrious career is his stint as director of Dar-ul-Nur, The Islamic Institution for Somali Muslim Community in Falls Church, Virginia. You see, Abdullahi is proficient in Arabic, Somali, Swahili, and English. While at the Somali school, he taught courses in beginner and advanced Arabic for adults and also gave weekly tafsirs (editorials) and lectures on fiqh. But this was just his way of reaching out to the community in the name of peace, right? We all know how peaceful Somalia is when they torture and kill Christians for not converting to Islam. Let's bring that "peace" here!!! Scumbag.
Some of Abdullahi's other pupils at the mosque offered their views on the Fort Hood massacre.
"It's very sad, a big tragedy for everybody," said another worshipper, Ibrahim Gayi.
"We pray for everybody, all Americans, not only Muslims," he said.
Gayi also added:
"It's got to be something mental," said Gayi.
"These guys who go and come back from war, they need help," he said.
Mr. Gayi....Hasan had spent his whole career at Walter Reed Hospital, so don't tell me he suffered from PTSD when he had never left the confines of this country. Granted, our brave soldiers who go and fight deserve every bit of help from us; Mr. Hasan does not. He gave up that privilege when he showed us what he truly believes.
And his beliefs were fostered in part by the teachings of his imam.
