Levin HuffPost PA Hate Story

Statement from Brian Levin on behalf of the Center for the Study of Hate & Extremism:

The disturbing allegations of outrageous police misconduct and collusion to cover up the true facts in the horrific killing of Luis Ramirez require the federal authorities to do exactly what they did. When local authorities and outcomes are marred by the kind of wanton abuse allegedly exhibited in this case, the processes and institutions of American justice are undermined. The Justice Department's intervention to right this miscarriage of justice is a welcome and necessary sign that racial killings of immigrants, including undocumented ones, on our streets have no place in a civilized society. It shows that our government will fulfill its obligation to justly punish not only those who kill, but also those who blatantly abuse the public trust by harboring, enabling or covering up for them.

Extremist Website: Hasan Is A Hero

Nidal Hassan Did the Right Thing

November 9, 2009 - الاثنين 22 ذو القعدة 1430 by Anwar alAwlaki
Filed under Imam Anwar's Blog

Nidal Hassan is a hero. He is a man of conscience who could not bear living the contradiction of being a Muslim and serving in an army that is fighting against his own people. This is a contradiction that many Muslims brush aside and just pretend that it doesn’t exist. Any decent Muslim cannot live, understanding properly his duties towards his Creator and his fellow Muslims, and yet serve as a US soldier. The US is leading the war against terrorism which in reality is a war against Islam. Its army is directly invading two Muslim countries and indirectly occupying the rest through its stooges.
Nidal opened fire on soldiers who were on their way to be deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. How can there be any dispute about the virtue of what he has done? In fact the only way a Muslim could Islamically justify serving as a soldier in the US army is if his intention is to follow the footsteps of men like Nidal.
The heroic act of brother Nidal also shows the dilemma of the Muslim American community. Increasingly they are being cornered into taking stances that would either make them betray Islam or betray their nation. Many amongst them are choosing the former. The Muslim organizations in America came out in a pitiful chorus condemning Nidal’s operation.
The fact that fighting against the US army is an Islamic duty today cannot be disputed. No scholar with a grain of Islamic knowledge can defy the clear cut proofs that Muslims today have the right -rather the duty- to fight against American tyranny. Nidal has killed soldiers who were about to be deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan in order to kill Muslims. The American Muslims who condemned his actions have committed treason against the Muslim Ummah and have fallen into hypocrisy.
Allah(swt) says: Give tidings to the hypocrites that there is for them a painful punishment –
Those who take disbelievers as allies instead of the believers. Do they seek with them honor [through power]? But indeed, honor belongs to Allah entirely. (al-Nisa 136-137)
The inconsistency of being a Muslim today and living in America and the West in general reveals the wisdom behind the opinions that call for migration from the West. It is becoming more and more difficult to hold on to Islam in an environment that is becoming more hostile towards Muslims.
May Allah grant our brother Nidal patience, perseverance and steadfastness and we ask Allah to accept from him his great heroic act. Ameen
