Hasan Karim Akbar (March 2003), an American Muslim soldier (101st airborne) in Kuwait, killed and wounded a number of his fellow soldiers because it was his duty as a Muslim to side with his Muslim brothers in a war against the unbelievers. [see The American Muslim Dilemma]

This is just one of the attacks launched against Americans by lone jihadists in the United States, both before and after the second Iraq war in 2003. They carry out their attacks alone, after feeling the need to strike against the enemies of Islam. As a believer, the jihadist is inspired to action when observing his Muslim brothers under attack in their homeland. The message is enforced by Muslim clerics in American mosques who rail against the enemies of Islam. These lone jihadists represent a real and present danger to Americans.

Daniel Pipes is the author of the term “Sudden Jihad Syndrome” and he gives examples of Muslims who commit these crimes and then take credit as a Muslim who is doing his duty to Allah and Islam. [ http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/Printable.asp?ID=21630 ]

Investor’s Business Daily (2/16/2007) printed a list of amateur jihadists, most acting alone, who usually strike their victims at random:

“It looks like the Muslim teen who opened fire on shoppers in a Salt Lake City mall is yet another case of ‘sudden jihad syndrome,’ a condition in which normal-appearing American Muslims abruptly turn violent.” [Feb. 13, 2007]

“A 23-year-old student, Mohammed Ali Alayed, who slashed the throat of his Jewish friend in Houston after apparently undergoing a religious awakening (he went to a local mosque afterward).”

“A 22-year-old Muslim, Ismail Yassin Mohamed, who stole a car in Minneapolis and rammed it into other cars before stealing a van and doing the same, injuring drivers and pedestrians, while repeatly yelling,” ‘Die, die, die, kill, kill, kill-all,’ he said, on orders from” ‘Allah.’

The comments I see most about these incidents is that “Radical Islam” is to blame and what is needed is a reformation. In fact, there is only one Islam and one Quran. All Muslims read the same book. The words are taken literally. The faithful believe they were given to Muhammad from Allah through the angel Gabriel. There can be no reformation.

This book is filled with hate for the unbelievers and prescribes various ways to destroy the enemies of Islam. Muhammad, the founder of Islam, is revered by Muslims and the Hadiths, a record of the deeds and words of Muhammad, are second only to the Quran in importance to the faithful. Muslims who commit these crimes against innocent people in the name of Islam are merely emulating the deeds of the prophet. (see Muhammad: A Model For Today’s Terrorists, http://www.thesigintreport.com ).

In any religion, a small percentage of members (the clerics and true believers, which could reach into the millions worldwide for Islam) are the activists that sustain it. And although the majority of Muslims go about their daily lives, many will stand on the sidelines and cheer (in the comfort of their homes) when, for example, the trade towers collapse, killing thousands of Americans.

A Muslim’s only allegiance is to Islam. That’s why you hear no condemnation of Bin Laden or Al Qaeda. Of course, fear is also a factor in the Muslim silence. When a Muslim country is attacked, it is the duty of every Muslim to support their brothers. Those Muslims who fight for or support the unbelievers (Americans) in a war against Muslims haved earned the death penalty.

There are about seven million Muslims in America. Since a true Muslim anywhere must be loyal to Islam, any Muslim is suspect because of the uncompromising nature of the religion.

As mentioned, those Muslims in our military, whose only allegiance is to Islam, are a proven threat. Cases have also been made against a Muslim professor in Florida and an FBI agent who refused to tape a Muslim terror suspect because “a Muslim doesn’t do that to another Muslim.”. The agent was reinstated at his job.

Recently, Hassan Abujihaad, a Muslim and former U.S. sailor, has been charged with “supporting terrorism with the intent to kill American citizens and with transmitting classified information to unauthorized recipients.” [Jennifer Medina, New York Times, March 9,2007]

Painting with a broad brush? No. Islam is different. Islam is not peaceful nor is it compatible with Democracy. “…Islamic governments have never and will never be established through peaceful solutions and cooperative councils.” [Al-Qaeda training manual, UIC/BM-8 translation]

Those who follow Islam are potential candidates for the “sudden jihad syndrome” and our leaders who continue to be politically correct and ignore the true nature of the Islamic terror in our midst are putting the lives of Americans at risk.
