Official: American Muslim soldier wanted to attack Fort Hood troops

By the CNN Wire Staff

(CNN) - An AWOL Muslim American Army private arrested near Fort Hood, Texas, told investigators that he wanted to attack fellow soldiers outside Fort Hood, two law enforcement officials said Thursday.

FBI agents discovered a bevy of potential bomb-making materials in the hotel room of Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo, who refused to deploy to Afghanistan and later went AWOL from Fort Campbell in Kentucky after being charged with possessing child pornography, said FBI spokesman Erik Vasys.

After a tip-off from a local gun shop, Killeen police arrested Abdo in a traffic stop Wednesday, Vasys said.

    Proof that we cannot trust a single filthy scheming mudslime. They will always stab you in the back because they are trained from birth to lie about everything. They have dual loyalties and should have been expelled from this country or been interned in camps on September 12, 2001.

    Ramadan starts. Pray for the salvation of Muslims by finding who Jesus is. Pray for Christians and all infidels to be protected in the Muslim land. Muslims in the free world should work for the freedom of conscience in the countries of their origins if they have any honesty.

    Peace and Ramadan Kareem to all Muslim Brothers and Sisters...Inshallah fasting from Monday Dawn to SunSet...
    Just wonder in Christians or non Religious have tried fasting as Muslims do...am sure with time they will adopt it as a system for the health benefits it holds health and body...it is told it helps the body to discharge and burn out the poisonous chemicals from our bodies other than controlling weights... Some say they can not because of smoking other for water or food...but other than that is controlling anger or bad mood of the empty stomach, controlling one's tongue from hurting any one,to control eyes from staring at desire... Above all those to a Muslim he is to Maintain Prayers and Quran Reciting which of course beside it being a spiritual matter it is meant the body exercise by the up's and down's of prayers....as well as training of tongue & lungs by the Quran Recitation...these beside Tasbih "Praise of Glorify" helps to control one's breathing..

    So you see it is all good and challenging since only by those means can you gain control your desires... 

    Control of Desire Quran verses same Verse in Arabic but in English check translation and God knows how many are other more...such as these things case confusion among non Arab Muslims and non Muslims..although all end to mean same thing but in different ways that caused it be misunderstood...then the fact of being translated in many languages in the same way...! This was just a standing example of the Quran although still alive existing and in one copy !?
    Then imagine what could have had happened to the Torah and or Gospel having passed through three dead languages,one after the other then from a classic language into modern language, in many different copies then into many languages.

    Read and Judge; 
    [79:40] As for the one who reverenced the majesty of his Lord, and enjoined the self from sinful lusts.
    [79:41] Paradise will be the abode.
    But as for him who feared to stand before his Lord and restrained his soul from lust, (40) Lo! the Garden will be his home. (41)
    And as for him who dreaded standing before his Lord, and restrained his soul from lust, (40) Verily the Garden! -that shall be his resort. (41)
    And for such as had entertained the fear of standing before their Lord's (tribunal) and had restrained (their) soul from lower Desires, (40) Their Abode will be the Garden. (41).
    But as for him who feared standing before his Lord, and restrained himself from impure evil desires, and lusts. (40) Verily, Paradise will be his abode. (41).
    Whereas for the one who feared to stand before his Lord, and restrained his self from the (evil) desire, (40) The Paradise will be the abode. (41).

  11. Reality

    As we "thu-mp" along with rational thinking, conclusions and reiteration to counter the millennia of false and flawed religious history and theology!!!------––

    What instigated the attack on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon? And what drives today's 24/7 mosque/imam-planned acts of terror and horror?

    The koran, Mohammed's book of death for all infidels and Muslim domination of the world by any means. Muslims must clean up this book removing said passages admitting that they are based on the Gabriel myth and therefore obviously the hallucinations and/or lies of Mohammed.

    Then we can talk about the safety and location of mosques and what is taught therein. Until then, no male Muslim can be trusted anytime or anywhere..................................

      At least realistic!

      July 30, 2011 at 7:50 am |
    • Reality

      And still more realism:

      Luther, Calvin, Joe Smith, Henry VIII, Wesley, Roger Williams, the Great “Babs” et al, founders of Christian-based religions or combination religions also suffered from the belief in/hallucinations of "pretty thingie" visits and "prophecies" for profits analogous to the myths of Catholicism (resurrections, apparitions, ascensions and immacu-late co-nceptions).

      Current problems:
      Adulterous preachers, pedophiliac clerics, "propheteering/ profiteering" evangelicals and atonement theology,

      Yes every body is hallucinating except for Marx,Lenin and so on...
      But any body says God is hallucinating...only God rejectors and disbelievers are the one's are in full presence of mind and in control....!?!

      Atheists only ransacked and destroyed what Christians had built excellently, nothing constructive. Jesus is right. Read the Gospel of John chapter 10.

    Summary: Muslims are normal and good comparing to the Western perverts. The West needs Muslims. Muslims need the life-saving Gospel message from Christians in the free world.

    • Rainer Braendlein

      In one way you are right, we in the Western World have become pretty pagan again. It is high time that we embrace Christianity again. I am sure, if we would daily live the Christian Life, God would protect us against our enemies.

      I do not agree with you that Muslims could be a good example for us. In fact, there religion is a religion of war and hate. Islam is the exact opposite of Christianity.

      Look at Islamic countries. The Islam has an absolute aspiration for rule there. Longing for rule is the opposite of Christian love, which would cause democracy. Christianity is the religion of brotherhood of all people.

      Yet Muhammad himself conducted aggressive war! In contrast Jesus cured people. Muhammad is the opposite of Jesus. Jesus cured people, Muhammad exterminated people. That is the historical truth.

      Rainer, the West has crossed the line. It needs the message of oncoming divine judgment. That's Christian love.

      Hi Muneef!

      I like you as a human being, but your Islam is absolutely backward.

      At the moment I try to answer the question: What urged Muhammad to invent the unholy Koran?

      Either he just needed a religion, in order to unite the Arabic tribes, or he had indeed satanic hallucinations.

      Strangely enough one of the greatest sins in Muhammad's eyes is it to believe in Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God. That's really outlandish. Why did Muhammad hate the Son of God so much?

      Of course, at Muhammad's times the Christian Roman Empire and the Christian Church were not perfect at all, but could this lead him to hate the Son of God in such a way.

      I suppose Muhammad was not only urged by his will to unite the Arabs, but also satanic apparitions, because the Koran, which he drafted, is a collection of thoughts of Satan. Satan is the arch-hater of Christ and his Church. Muhammad was motivated by Satan. That is very probable.

      Muneef, you should convert to Christianity right now. Jesus will assess your life at Judgement Day.

    • Muneef

      Do you listen to your self...do you know any thing about the religion from the right sources? You shouldn't throw accusation with out knowledge...!
      At least when you have no knowledge you should speak in respectful manner in respect of the feelings of others...you said you liked me as human I say ok fine and I will do the same but to insult my belief and whom I as Muslim hold in high respect....well then you are not a worthy human being to treat as one...Hope you feel for me as I would have felt for you.
