Another ‘Hassan’ planning Another Fort Hood-Style Attack signals Much Bigger Problem

A Muslim man named Muhammad Abdullah Hassan “Booker” was recruited by the U.S. Army in February. He was told to report for basic training on April 7th but is now being hunted by the FBI and the Military after it was learned that Hassan had told friends he was planning to commit jihad. Instead of the November 5, 2009 Fort Hood jihadist attack committed by another man named Hasan being used to better profile recruits, the military continues to avoid a much larger problem.

That larger problem includes a man named Taha Jaber Al-Alwani, a virulent anti-Semite whose job includes vetting Muslim chaplains for the U.S. Military. Based on this latest report about a jihadist being recruited, the military itself could benefit from better vetting of recruits like Hassan. Though there is no evidence linking Al-Alwani to this recruit, there is plenty of evidence linking Al-Alwani to the Muslim Brotherhood and to his having a role in fostering a jihadist mentality in the U.S. Military, which seems to be all too willing to ignore his influence.

According to Fox News, an alert was sent out by the Kansas City branch of the FBI and is titled “Planned Fort Hood-inspired Jihad against US Soldiers by Army Recruit”. Based on the contents of the report, the only reason Hassan’s planned jihad is known is because he divulged his intentions to friends.

In a disturbing revelation, the author of the Fox News report said that Hassan was released after being interviewed by military officials about his intentions and the FBI was engaged several days later.

What does this say about the vetting and profiling standards of the military? Has nothing been learned from the Fort Hood attack? In case you’re wondering why, look no further than this short excerpt of an exchange between then Army Chief of Staff George Casey on ABC This Week on November 8, 2009, just three days after the Fort Hood attack. Casey was more concerned about the attack leading to a loss of “diversity” than he was about the victims and their families:

It’s worth noting that in the case of Fort Hood jihadist Nidal Malik Hasan, there were plenty of signs that he was a threat but he kept being moved up and around by people who saw the red flags but either couldn’t or wouldn’t wave them. According to an AP report that quoted Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), the FBI was “too concerned about political correctness… despite significant warning signs”.

These are symptoms of a much larger problem; they do not constitute the problem itself.

As has reported, when it comes to the problem of Islamic infiltration of the U.S. Military, it’s people like Al-Alwani and Louay Safi who have to be brought to the public’s attention and identified for who and what they are.

“Taha Jaber Al-Alwani is the Imam who runs the Graduate School of Islamic and Social Sciences (GSISS), which is a United States Department of Defense program for training Muslim military chaplains,” said Walid Shoebat, who has also translated a very damning work authored by Al-Alwani entitled, “The Great Haughtiness”. Shoebat contends that until the truth about people like Alwani is confronted, the American military will not be able to deal with the larger problem.

In his work, Alwani reveals himself as an ardent anti-Semite, writing that: is quoted as saying,

“They [the Jews] were able to convert a negative incident [the Holocaust], which ended them up in a collective apostasy; to a model, which enabled them to make strategies, institutions and plans to ensure that the world – the whole world – remain beneath them.”

Alwani is but one example. Louay Safi, who has served as a top figure in two Muslim Brotherhood front organizations – The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) – was sent to Fort Hood as an instructor after the 2009 jihadist attack and that he presented a check to the families of the victims.

As recently reported, a man named Abubaker Y. Ahmed Al Shingieti has served as the Executive Director for the IIIT. He also worked as a top official for Sudan’s Omar al-Bashir from 1990 – 1998.

Omar al-Bashir is wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) on several counts relating to crimes against humanity and his country is still identified by the U.S. State Department as a State Sponsor of Terrorism.
