Man charged with killing soldier says he's no thug

Another case of a jihadi declaring that his act of terrorism was done in the name of Allah and the authorities denying his confession.  Just what will it take for our government to accept that there is a large minority of Muslims who are actively trying to overthrow Western civilization and replace it with Sharia?  What will it take for the man in the street to wake up to the Muslim invasion of America?

Where will you be when the Jihad hits the street?


Man charged with killing soldier says he's no thug

Published 06:16 a.m., Friday, June 3, 2011

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A man charged with capital murder for the slaying of a soldier at a military recruiting center says in a note from jail that he's not a "common criminal."

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports Friday that Abdulhakim Muhammad (AKA Carlos Bledsoe)
said in the note that prosecutors have mischaracterized him by likening him to a drive-by shooter.

Muhammad is charged in the 2009 slaying of Army Pvt. William Long. Prosecutors say Muhammad drove to the center, killed Long and wounded another soldier, and drove off. Police caught him several miles away.

Muhammad has told The Associated Press that he shot the soldiers as retribution for the U.S. going to war in Muslim countries. He said in the note to the paper that the shooting was a act of war, not a crime.

Murder suspect says he wanted to start terror cell

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The man accused of fatally shooting a soldier outside a military recruiting station in Little Rock in 2009 now says he wanted to start a terrorist cell in the U.S., but a prosecutor brushed off the claims Saturday as "just ridiculous."

In his latest letter to the court, Abdulhakim Muhammad told Pulaski County Circuit Judge Herb Wright that he wanted to return to the U.S. from Yemen to start his own terror group. Muhammad was deported from Yemen in early 2009, after being in prison in the Middle Eastern country for immigration violations.

Muhammad was born in Memphis, Tenn., as Carlos Bledsoe, but changed his name after converting to Islam.

He is charged with capital murder and attempted capital murder in the June 2009 shootings that killed Army Pvt. William Long and wounded Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula. The letter, first reported by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, focuses on Muhammad's argument that his case should be tried in federal court.

Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney Larry Jegley said there was little he could say about the letter.

"I mean, his claims are just ridiculous. He's nothing but a street thug and this is just a drive-by shooting. That's our position and we're sticking to it," Jegley told The Associated Press.
