Saudi who killed three and wounded eight had condemned US as “nation of evil”
By Julio Severo
The military Saudi who launched an armed attack in a classroom at a naval air station in Florida on December 6, 2019, killing three and injuring eight before being shot dead by officers, condemned the United States as a “nation of evil” in an online manifesto.
Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, who was a Saudi Air Force aviator in a flight training program for foreign military personnel at Naval Air Station Pensacola, posted a short manifesto to Twitter where he claimed to be “against evil.” He explained that this evil was America.
“America as a whole has turned into a nation of evil,” he said.
According to SITE, a group that monitors jihadist media, Mohammed, who is a spelling of the name of the founder of Islam, wrote in this manifesto that he “hates” Americans for their supposed crimes against Muslims and “humanity.”
“I’m not against you for just being American, I don’t hate you because your freedoms, I hate you because every day you supporting, funding and committing crimes not only against Muslims but also humanity,” he wrote.
The manifesto also condemned U.S. support for Israel and included a quote from Osama bin Laden, the Saudi founder and leader of Al-Qaeda.
Six other Saudi nationals were arrested near the base shortly after the attack. Three of the six were seen filming the entire attack, which the media called “incident.”
In their initial answers, the FBI and other U.S. law enforcing agencies did not know to say if the “incident” was a terror attack.
U.S. officials are not free to accuse Saudi Arabia, even when one of its own military officers was directly involved in the attack, because Saudi Arabia is the most important purchaser of U.S. weapons and sends thousands of military Saudis a year for training in America.
For 2019, Saudi Arabia sent 3,150 military officers for training in the U.S. at a cost of more than $100 million. Yet, the real U.S. profit comes from the Saudi purchase of U.S. weapons. Just in 2017, in his first trip to Saudi Arabia, U.S. President Donald Trump signed an extraordinary deal worth a total of US$ 350 billion of U.S. weapon sale to Saudi Arabia.
Such massive military trade deals can account for the hesitance of U.S. authorities to call the attack an act of terrorism.
The Saudi attack on a U.S. military base in Florida was not the first time Saudis attacked in the U.S. Of the 19 Muslim men involved in the September 11 attacks, 15 were Saudi and some of them attended flight school in Florida. The mastermind of this attack was Saudi Osama bin Laden.
Even though the victims’ families have launched lawsuits against the Islamic dictatorship of Saudi Arabia, the U.S. government has blocked such legal actions.
Interestingly, both the Saudi aviator and some of the 9/11 Saudi hijackers were trained in Pensacola, and the Naval Air Station Pensacola, which suffered the attack, is known as the “Cradle of U.S. Navy Aviation.” The repetition of the same problem in the same place shows that the U.S. has made itself extraordinarily vulnerable to Islamic terrorism.
Mohammed Saeed al-Shamrani hosted a dinner party with three other Saudis to watch videos of mass shootings days before the attack.
Saudi Air Force officers selected for military training in the United States are intensely vetted by both countries. Even so, they could not hinder Mohammed and his profound allegiance to Islam from bypassing the extreme vetting to carry out his Islamic terror act.
Despite the standard features of terrorism, U.S. officials began their response with the standard explanation that there was no evidence that the attack was terrorist. The biggest problem with telling the truth here is that the truth again incriminates Saudi Arabia, the world capital of Islam and Islamic terrorism.
The biggest “problem” that closed nations, such as communist and Islamic nations, face with Christians entering their countries is the concealment of their motive: preaching the Gospel, to speak of the love of Jesus. There are no cases of Christians entering a Muslim or Communist country with the secret motive of committing a terrorist act to kill Communists and Muslims. For example, Billy Graham visited the Soviet Union in the late 1950s and his prayer there was that the doors would be opened for the preaching of the Gospel.
Even if only a single case of a terrorism-motivated Christian arose, it would be the case of an isolated madman, because every year thousands of evangelical missionaries, mainly Americans, enter other countries to speak of the love of Jesus with no terrorist act.
Yet, in the case of Muslims, as much as governments carefully screen to sift out those with the slightest terrorist inclination, there are always Muslims to attack and kill innocents. These are not isolated cases. The “religion of peace,” as Islam is treated by presidents — including Bush and Obama — of western nations, insists on producing terrorists and killers worldwide. It is, by the way, the religion that kills most Christians in the world. There are about 100,000 martyred Christians every year.
The Islam that moved the Saudi military officer to kill at the U.S. base was not an isolated form of Islamism. Over 100 years ago, Winston Churchill said:
“The Mahommedan religion increases, instead of lessening, the fury of intolerance. It was originally propagated by the sword, and ever since, its votaries have been subject, above the people of all other creeds, to this form of madness… How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.”
The biggest problem Islamic countries face with the entry of Christians is Christians taking Bibles and the love of Jesus to share. The biggest problem Christian nations face with the entry of Muslims is Muslims taking bombings and Muhammad’s hatred. The clear difference between Christianity and Islam is that while thousands of Christians spread the love of Jesus in every country, thousands of Muslims spread Muhammad’s hatred in every country.
What are the U.S. and other western nations earning by receiving millions of Muslim immigrants? Terrorism. What did the nations gain by receiving American missionaries? Gospel, evangelical culture, culture of peace and civility.
Western countries, for their own sake, should ban Islam, which is the main ideology that drives thousands of terrorists worldwide.
Yet, it is too late. They are calling “religion of peace” the very cancer that is eating away their civilizations.
