Muslim polygamy – in Seattle
by Pamela Geller
Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif is accused of plotting a jihad terror attack against a Seattle military recruiting station. Abdul-Latif and another jihadi, Walli Mujahidh, have been charged with planning an attack on the Military Entrance Processing Station. The FBI said that they were trying to figure out "how they could kill the most military personnel and escape or die as martyrs," and talked about throwing fragmentation grenades into the cafeteria of the Station. After his arrest, the local Seattle media interviewed his niqab-wearing wife, Binta Moussa-Davis, who sobbed that Abdul-Latif was devout: "He just good Muslim. Perfect Muslim. He pray five times a day." Abdul-Latif was so devout, in fact, that he was seeking a second wife at a Muslim dating site on the Internet – right in Seattle, where polygamy is supposed to be illegal.
Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif was such a "perfect Muslim" that he wanted to travel to Yemen to sit at the feet of the jihad cleric Anwar al-Awlaki. Al-Awlaki mentored the Fort Hood jihad mass murderer, Nidal Malik Hasan, whom Abdul-Latif wanted to imitate. Devout Muslim al-Awlaki also provided succor and Islamic spiritual guidance to the Christmas underwear bomber and the Times Square car bomber.
Abdul-Latif's YouTube channel features a video in which he asks Allah to "show mercy to the mujahedeen who are fighting to help preserve the religion of Islam, and that he'll help suffice us, those of us who are not fighting right now, and bless those who at least have the desire to go struggle for the cause of Allah … whether that's jihad by hand, jihad by tongue, or jihad within ourselves." He praises al-Awlaki in that video as well.
