By Moody Adams Abdul Hakim Mujahid Muhammad, a recent convert to Islam, gunned down two army recruiters, killing 23-year-old Pvt. William Long, of Conway Arkansas.
The killing took place outside the Army-Navy Career Center in Little Rock, Arkansas.
The killer recently became a Muslim and traveled to two Islamic countries to study Islam.
Little Rock Police Lt. Terry Hastings said Muhammad appeared upset at the army, though he had never served in it. Hastings said we are not clear on what he was upset about.
Read what Muhammad has been studying in his Koran and it becomes clear why he was upset at the American military.
1. Shooting the soldiers, who were not Muslims, was in obedience to the Koran: Koran 2:193: Fight therefore against them until . . . the only worship be that of God (Allah). 2. Fighting the infidels gains pardon and mercy, Koran 3:157: “And if ye shall be slain or die on the path of God, then pardon from God and mercy is better than all your amassings; For if ye die or be slain, verily unto God shall ye be gathered.” 3. Fighting against infidels assures Muhammad he will go to Paradise; Koran 47:4-6 commands: When ye encounter the infidels, strike off their heads till ye have made a great slaughter among them, . . . And whoso fight for the cause of God, their works he will not suffer to miscarry; He will vouchsafe them guidance, and dispose their hearts aright; And he will bring them into the Paradise, of which he hath told them. 4. Fighting on Allah’s path brings a great reward: Koran 4:74: “Let those then fight on the path of God, who barter this present life for that which is to come; for whoever fighteth on God’s path, whether he be slain or conquer, we will in the end give him a great reward.” 5. American soldiers are oppressing the weaker Islamic countries and should be fought, Koran 4:75: Fight . . . for the weak among men, women and children, who say, ‘O our Lord! Bring us forth from this city whose inhabitants are oppressors.
Muhammad apparently lied, pleading innocent in court. But this is not a problem his Islamic instructions explain it is good to lie if it advances the cause of Islam: Lying is not evil when it is an advantage to Islam, Koran 24:11: “Of a truth, they who advanced that lie were a large number of you; but regard it not as an evil to you. No, it is an advantage to you.”
Will the outcry in the American media be as great against the Koran as it is against the teachings to kill abortion doctors?
