As we learn more about the beheading of a woman in Moore, OK by a Muslim named Alton Nolen, we should be prepared for the response of Muslim Brotherhood front groups to include claims of Islamophobia and that the woman’s death is somehow the fault of non-Muslims generally and an Oklahoma State Rep. specifically. If that doesn’t make sense to you, don’t worry. It means you’re normal. However, here is how you can expect the twisted brand of logic to go.

Oklahoma State Rep. John Bennett.

Earlier this month, Oklahoma State Rep. John Bennett posted some anti-Islamic comments on his personal facebook page. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) – a Muslim Brotherhood front group – got wind of it and demanded an apology. Not only did the retired marine Bennett refuse but he spoke at a town hall event and doubled down, saying that 90% of the Qur’an is violent.

The next day, CAIR Oklahoma’s Executive Director Adam Soltani held a press conference and denounced Bennett while saying that his comments have put Muslims in danger. In fact, Soltani said Bennett’s comments had incited violence against Muslims “in the state of Oklahoma”.

Breitbart is now reporting that the Imam at the mosque attended by Alton Nolen, the Muslim who beheaded the innocent woman on September 25th, had complained of threats against him:

Imam Enchassi said in an interview about the threats he allegedly received: “We’re going to chop your head off. We’re going to burn your mosque. We got specific threats of beheading Muslims in the state. Beheading children.”

The alleged threats supposedly came after Oklahoma State Representative John Bennet described Islam as a “social political system that uses a deity to advance its agenda of global conquest.” He continued,” That’s exactly what ISIS is doing right now, and people that follow Islam are and will do the same thing.”

The authenticity of those threats is not known but Colleen Hufford – the woman with the severed head – was not Muslim and her killer was. Look for Bennett’s views to begin entering the discourse among Muslim leaders relative to the beheading.

According to Soltani, Bennett had been inciting violence. Nolen’s beheading of a non-Muslim is an act of violence. Therefore, Bennett is somehow responsible. This is the same kind of mentality that allows Muslims to blame a video for the Benghazi attacks instead of the attackers and a cartoonist for Muslim riots all over the Middle East instead of the rioters.

In another report from Breitbart, it’s revealed that the former Imam of Nolen’s mosque – the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City – has connections to the Boston Marathon bombers, Anwar al-Awlaki, and a convicted terrorist.

Though no longer in Oklahoma City, Suhaib Webb is the Imam at the Islamic Society of Boston (ISB), which was founded by Abdurahman Alamoudi, who was convicted on terrorism-related charges in 2004 and sentenced to 23 years in prison. The Tsarnaev brothers who set off bombs at the Boston Marathon in 2013 also attended Webb’s mosque.

Moreover, Anwar al-Awlaki, the inspiration for Fort Hood jihadist Nidal Malik Hasan, and Webb had some sort of relationship, with both men speaking at a fundraiser just two days prior to the 9/11 attacks. It’s worthy of note that at that time, al-Awlaki was the Imam at the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, VA. That mosque was visited by three of the 9/11 hijackers.

Less than one year earlier, the chairman of that Mosque – Bassam Estwani – delivered a prayer on the floor of the House of Representatives. This was done at the request of his Congressman, Rep. Thomas M. Davis, a Republican.

At the annual 2009 U.S.-Islamic World Forum (US-IWF), an event co-sponsored by the nation of Qatar and the Brookings Institute, a prominent Washington, DC think tank, Webb was in attendance. The event was held in February of that year, about nine months prior to the Fort Hood attack. The US-IWF is basically a who’s who of political power players every year. In 2009, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and then future CIA Director David Petraeus were among the speakers.

It is noteworthy that in light of how the U.S. government went out of its way to avoid transparency relative to the Fort Hood massacre that killed 14 and wounded 32, less than one year earlier, a man with connections to Hasan’s hero al-Awlaki was invited to such a prestigious event in Doha, Qatar.

    The main thing to me concerning this article is even though Rep. Bennett is a state rep. I still believe he has the right to say what he truly feels and thinks. I would rather have someone telling me the truth, instead of lying to my face.
    Plus the added factor that I believe in what he is saying also is a plus.

    We are suppose to have a few million muslins inside the U.S. But since any killing has happened of Americans (and non Americans),How many have really come onto the public form and made any statements against what has happened. Even the last incident of the 2 women in OK, have any muslins really stepped forward ?

    The Imam in OK, has even come out only to state, that he or ‘they’ have received threats, I would have to ask him to show it to me on paper or through a recording in order to possibly believe it.
    Their word is no longer any good.
