Anwar al Awlaki, Fanatical Mentor to Nidal Malik Hasan, Calls for ‘Allah’s Victory’ Over West

From Jawa Report, here’s the webpage for Anwar al Awlaki, Nidal Malik Hasan’s religious mentor at the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Great Falls, Virginia. Al Awlaki boasts of the Taliban “making U.S. soldiers” cry in Afghanistan and argues for destroying enemy armies: “Establishing Islamic sharia is an obligation, and fighting in the cause of Allah is an obligation, and if that cannot be achieved except by fighting against these armies then that becomes an obligation.”

And here’s this, from one of al Awlaki’s post, “Could Yemen Be the Next Surprise of the Season?“:

America and its allies in the area are plotting against the mujahedeen, nevertheless their growth increases by the day. May Allah grant the true believers victory and grant them steadfastness on His path.

Their intention is to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah will complete His light even thought the disbelievers may detest it.

As Jawa Report notes:

Any one who knows anything about al-Awlaki knows he is as radical as they come.

A deeper terrorist plot? No indication of that. But those who continue to claim that the attack had nothing to do with a broader goal of jihad really have nothing left to stand on.

Again, let me remind the simple minded that like most human behavior murder is often motivated by many things. Sure, Hasan very well could have been distressed over an impending deployment and perhaps that deployment was a proximate cause. He may also have been bat shit crazy.

However it is also clear that he held the same world view as the vast majority of Islamist terrorists and that this was at least one of his motivations.
