The Jihadi Serial Killer no One's Talking About
Michelle Malkin / Townhall Columnist
For two bloody months, an armed jihadist serial killer
ran loose across the country. At least four innocent men died this
spring and summer as acts of "vengeance" on behalf of aggrieved Muslims,
the self-confessed murderer has now proclaimed. Have you heard about
this horror? Probably not.
The usual suspects who decry
hate crimes and gun violence haven't uttered a peep. Why? Like O.J.'s
glove: If the narrative don't fit, you must acquit. The admitted killer
will be cast as just another "lone wolf" whose familiar grievances and
bloodthirsty Islamic invocations mean nothing.
I say: Enough with
the whitewashing. Meet Ali Muhammad Brown. His homicidal Islamic terror
spree took him from coast to coast. The 29-year-old career thug admitted
to killing Leroy Henderson in Seattle in April; Ahmed Said and Dwone
Anderson-Young in Seattle on June 1; and college student Brendan Tevlin,
19, in Essex County, New Jersey, on June 25. Tevlin was gunned down in
his family Jeep on his way home from a friend's house. Ballistics and
other evidence linked all the victims to Muhammad Brown. Police
apprehended him last month hiding in an encampment near the Watchung
Mountains of West Orange, New Jersey.
While he was on the run, he
disguised himself in a Muslim keffiyeh. He carried a notebook with
jihadist scribblings and advice on evading detection. I obtained the
latest charging documents filed in Washington state, which detail the
defiant domestic terrorist's motives.
Muhammad Brown told
investigators that Tevlin's slaying was a "just kill." The devout
Islamic adherent proclaimed: "My mission is vengeance. For the lives,
millions of lives are lost every day."
Echoing jihadist Fort Hood mass
killer Nidal Hasan, Muhammad Brown cited Muslim deaths in "Iraq, Syria,
(and) Afghanistan" as the catalysts for his one-man Islamic terror
campaign. "All these lives are taken every single day by America, by
this government. So a life for a life."
When a detective asked him
to clarify whether all four murders were "done for vengeance for the
actions of the United States in the Middle East," Muhammad Brown stated
unequivocally: "Yes." He added that he was "just doing (his) small
Seattle's left-wing mayor, Ed Murray, rushed to issue a
statement -- which might as well have sported an insipid "Coexist"
bumper sticker across the page -- asserting that Muhammad Brown's
seething, deadly hatred did "not reflect the values of Muslims." But the
fact is Ali Muhammad Brown has plenty of company. Seattle alone has
been a long-festering hotbed of anti-American, anti-Semitic jihadism.
2011, a Muslim terror ring led by Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif and Walli
Mujahidh plotted "to kill officers and employees of the Department of
Defense who worked at the (Military Entrance Processing Stations)
located in the Federal Center South building in Seattle, Washington, and
to kill other persons assisting such officers and employees in the
performance of their duties" using "fully-automatic weapons pistols, and
In 2007, Seattle jihadist James Ujaama
pleaded guilty to terrorism charges related to his plan to establish a
terror-training ground in Bly, Oregon. He had previously pleaded guilty
to aiding the Taliban.
In 2006, Everett, Washington Islamic
revenge-seeker Naveed Haq shot six innocent women and killed one at the
Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle building while spewing anti-Israel
hatred and Muslim diatribes.
In 2002, James Ujaama's mosque
leader, Abdul Raheem Al Arshad Ali of the radical Dar-us-Salaam mosque
in Seattle's Central District, was first arrested on illegal weapons
charges. He had provided arms to fellow Seattle-area Muslim cleric, Semi
Osman. The ethnic Lebanese born in Sierra Leone had served in a naval
reserve fueling unit based in Tacoma, Washington. Osman had access to
fuel trucks similar to the type used by al-Qaida in the 1996 bombing of
the Khobar Towers, which killed 19 U.S. airmen and wounded nearly 400
other Americans. Osman later pleaded guilty to illegal weapons
Another militant Seattle jihadist, Muslim convert
Ruben Shumpert (aka Amir Abdul Muhaimin) was arrested after an FBI raid
in 2004 for his role in a terror-financing scheme. He skipped out on his
sentencing hearing and turned up in Somalia, where he was killed
fighting the U.S. military. Terror group al Shabaab hailed Muhaimin as a
Which brings us back to Ali Muhammad Brown, who had been
arrested 10 years ago as part of Muhaimin's suspected terror-financing
ring. A decade later, despite being on the feds' radar screen, four
innocent men are dead at Muhammad Brown's hand.
Muslim haters don't want to coexist. They want to kill and help fund and
train other Islamic killers. They are living and working among us,
embedded in local mosques and inside our military. Where are our
political leaders? Making Kumbaya excuses, sitting on the sidelines and
golfing while homegrown and global jihad burn.
