'Moderate' Muslim Plots Jihad Mass Murder at Fort Hood
by Robert Spencer
Yet another jihad mass murder at Fort Hood in Texas was narrowly averted last week, and its perpetrator, a Muslim soldier in the U.S. Army named Naser Abdo, was defiant. Accused of plotting to construct bombs and detonate them in a crowded restaurant full of soldiers from Fort Hood, Abdo admitted his guilt in court last Friday and cried out "Iraq 2006" and "Nidal Hasan Fort Hood 2009"—name-dropping the Islamic jihadist who murdered 13 Americans at Fort Hood in November of that year. The most significant aspect of Abdo's attempt to emulate Hasan's jihad murders was the one (not surprisingly) most overlooked by the mainstream media: Abdo was a well-known self-described moderate Muslim.
