From the moment
John Allen Muhammad and Lee Malvo were arrested in
Beltway-area sniper case last fall, the
Muslim activists wanted us to believe that the
serial killings had absolutely nothing to do with
CNN downplayed Muhammad`s religious
conversion—calling him by his old name, John Allen
Williams, when his identity was first revealed. Malvo
was cast as a clueless dupe with no true convictions.
Nihad Awad of the Council on American-Islamic Relations
argued: "There is no indication that this case is
related to Islam or
Muslims." Chicago Sun-Times columnist
railed against conservative commentators such as the
Mark Steyn, who had taken note of Muhammad`s Islamic
faith and his reportedly expressed anti-American
sentiments after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
Roeper also ridiculed National Review
columnist James Robbins for astutely observing that the
sniper was acting like
“a jihadist warrior." Roeper smugly concluded:
" . . . an awful lot of conservatives really, really
wanted the snipers to be terrorists. But they were
wrong. I`ll say that because
they never will."
Now it is time for Roeper, CAIR and the militant
Religion of Peace
propagandists to face the facts once and for all. A
chilling stack of evidence, introduced by Malvo`s own
lawyers last week at his capital murder trial, exposes
accused sniper Malvo as an unrepentant Muslim extremist.
He may not have been a card-carrying member of al Qaeda,
but as Claremont Institute fellow John Hinderaker notes
on Powerlineblog.com, Malvo was more of a
"freelance" Islamofascist—as legions of
aggrieved fanatics around the world are.
Malvo`s violent drawings and
anti-Semitic rantings show him
to be every bit as
blood-thirsty, hatemongering and
martyr-craving as any
Sept. 11 hijacker or Palestinian suicide bomber.
Among Malvo`s jailhouse artwork, (online):
Exhibit 65-006: A self-portrait of Malvo in the
cross hairs of a gun scope shouting, "ALLAH
AKBAR!" The word "SALAAM" scrawled
vertically. A poem: "Many more will have to suffer.
Many more will have to die. Don`t ask me why."
Exhibit 65-013: The word "INSHALLAH" above a
portrait glorifying "Muammar Kaddafi" as "The
Liberator" dressed in full military regalia.
Exhibit 65-016: A portrait of Saddam Hussein with
the words "INSHALLAH" and "The Protector," surrounded
by rockets labeled "chem" and "nuk" (sic).
Exhibit 65-043: Father and son portrait of Malvo
and Muhammad. "We will kill them all. Jihad."
Exhibit 65-056: A self-portrait of Malvo as
sniper, lying in wait, with his rifle. "JIHAD" written
in bold letters.
Exhibit 65-057: A drawing of the Twin Towers
burning with a plane flying toward the buildings.
Captions: "JIHAD ISLAM UNITE RISE!" along with
"America did this" and "You were warned."
Portrait of Malvo as sniper labeled "Believer" and
portrait of Osama bin Laden labeled "prophet." A poem:
"Our minarets are our bayonets, Our mosques are our
baracks (sic), Our believers are our soldiers."
The American flag and the Star of David drawn in cross
Exhibit 65-067: A suicide bomber labeled
"Hamas" walking into a McDonald`s restaurant.
Another drawing of the Twin Towers burning captioned:
"85 percent chance Zionists did this." More
scrawls: "ALLAH AKBAR," "JIHAD" and "Islam
Exhibit 65-103: A lion accompanies chapter and
verse from the Koran ("Sura 2:190"): "Fight in the
cause of Allah those who fight you and slay them
wherever ye catch them."
Exhibit 65-109: Portrait of Osama bin Laden,
captioned "Servant of Allah."
Exhibit 65-117: The White House drawn in cross
hairs, surrounded by missiles, with a warning:
"Sep. 11 we will ensure will look like a picnic to
you" and "you will bleed to death little by
Exhibit 65-133: Reference to "Islamic counter
attack force . . . ICAF."
Exhibit 65-114: Self-portrait of Malvo as sniper.
Rant says "they all died and they all deserved it."
Exhibit 65-101: Malvo`s thought for the day:
"Islam the only true guidance, the way of peace."
Ten Americans were murdered at the hands of the
Beltway-area snipers. Malvo`s
lawyers say he was
insane and "brainwashed."
No more so than your average
madrassa student in Jeddah or America-hating cave
dweller in Tora Bora. Malvo is, in his own words, a
"believer" of Allah and a "soldier"
Stop telling me
Islam had nothing to do with it.
