Fort Hood Gunman Shouted “Allahu Akbar!” Before Opening Fire

image5541571g Fort Hood Gunman Shouted “Allahu Akbar!” Before Opening Fire

Fort Hood soldiers who witnessed the shooting rampage that left 13 people dead  and many injured said the gunman, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, shouted “Allahu Akbar!” before opening fire on soldiers at Fort Hood. Read below to find out what “Allahu Akbar” means.

Lt. Gen. Robert Cone spoke with NBC’s “Today” show on Friday and said the shooter yelled the comment “Allahu Akbar!”, which is Arabic for “God is great” before he began firing on the innocent Fort Hood soldiers.

Major Hasan was an Army psychiatrist that the military trained to help soldiers with post-traumatic stress and turned on his own comrades.

Cone says Hasan was not known to be a threat or risk but internet postings by Major Hasan tell a different story. Here is a posting:

“There was a grenade thrown amongs [sic] a group of American soldiers. One of the soldiers, feeling that it was to late for everyone to flee jumped on the grave with the intention of saving his comrades. Indeed he saved them. He inentionally [sic] took his life (suicide) for a noble cause i.e. saving the lives of his soldier. To say that this soldier committed suicide is inappropriate. Its more appropriate to say he is a brave hero that sacrificed his life for a more noble cause. Scholars have paralled [sic] this to suicide bombers whose intention, by sacrificing their lives, is to help save Muslims by killing enemy soldiers. If one suicide bomber can kill 100 enemy soldiers because they were caught off guard that would be considered a strategic victory. Their intention is not to die because of some despair. The same can be said for the Kamikazees in Japan. They died (via crashing their planes into ships) to kill the enemies for the homeland. You can call them crazy i you want but their act was not one of suicide that is despised by Islam. So the scholars main point is that “IT SEEMS AS THOUGH YOUR INTENTION IS THE MAIN ISSUE” and Allah (SWT) knows best.”

Hasan was shot four times during his killing spree but Lt. Cone says Hasan is hospitalized in stable condition and that military officials will interrogate him as soon as possible.
