Nidal Hasan wants to join Islamic State, Princeton’s Robert George warns US

The Fort Hood shooter wrote a letter to the leadership of ISIS, asking to be a citizen while Princeton University professor Robert George warned Wednesday that the Islamic State will carry out “mass slaughter in the United States” if it is not soon “destroyed as a fighting force.”

Nidal Hasan“They have every intention of getting [to the United States], and these are people who achieve what they set out to achieve,” George said on The Glenn Beck Program with guest host Dana Loesch. “Unless somebody stops them, they make good on their threats. They have threatened to carry out activity in the United States — killing people, mass slaughter in the United States.”

“Believe me, I plead with you, I want your listeners to believe me — these people will do it if they can,” George continued. “And they will be able to do it unless we stop them.”

Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood shooter and vocal Islamic extremist penned a 2-page letter, obtained by Fox News, addressed to “Ameer, Mujahid Dr. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi,” the leader of the Islamic State in Iraq.

Hasan asked to join the caliphate. “I formally and humbly request to be made a citizen of the Islamic State…It would be an honor for any believer to be an obedient citizen soldier to a people and its leader who don’t compromise the religion of All-Mighty Allah to get along with the disbelievers,” he added. 

Hasan killed 13 and injured more than 30 at the 2009 Fort Hood shooting. The Obama administration classified the massacre as an incident of “workplace violence.”

Princeton professor described the Islamic State as “genocidal,” saying: “They mean to wipe out entire communities, and there is nothing they will stop short of when it comes to achieving their goal.” Hasan seems to fit the mold.

“Our well-being, our security, our place in the world are vitally threatened by ISIS and ISIL,” he said. “They will stop at nothing … in order to destroy anyone standing in their way so that they can establish the caliphate.”

George advocated working with the international community to supply air support, as well as strategic and intelligence support, to Kurdish forces, Sunni tribesmen, and other local forces resisting the Islamic State. He also advocated airstrikes against Islamic State strongholds.

George said “we’re going to have to fight them eventually.” The only question is whether we do it in Iraq, or wait “until they’re carrying out terrorist activity within the United States.”

Hasan’s attorney, John Galligan, told Fox News that the letter “underscores how much of his life, actions and mental thought process are driven by religious zeal.”

    And President Obama called what Major Nidal Hasan work place violence. This proves that it was a terrorist attack and not a work place violence. Nidal Hasan is in his heart a member of the ISIS state by his own admission and was at the time of his attack. But Nidal Hasan being a terrorist did not meet Obama political agenda. Now the US and much of the rest of the world pay for his agenda.
