A History of Muslim Murder on American Soil

Muslim Murder of American Citizens

Call it any politically correct name you wish, but the truth is it is Muslim murder of American citizens.

Over the past few years, the words “Muslim Attack” have been watered down, bleached out, given many other more politically correct names until we don’t realize as a country what we’re dealing with.

But below are the facts as they truly are and it’s time to face some hard facts about exactly who is perpetrating this.

People killed by radical Muslims on September 11, 2001 – 2,996 Muslim-Americans killed “in revenge” – 1 – and one injured.

The one Muslim killed was Waqar Hassan, a Muslim convenience storeowner who was gunned down by Mark Anthony Stroman in Texas. Stroman was a white supremacist with a felony record who went on to shoot two more people in the following weeks.

Stroman killed a second person, who he thought was a muslim, but he was actually Indian. The injured man lost an eye, but he said his muslim faith said he must forgive Stroman, which he did. Stroman thought they were from the middle east, but his education failed him, and he was wrong.

Mark Stroman was sentenced to death. Can the same be said about many Muslim terrorists such as Lockerbie bomber, Abdelbaset Al Megrahi, who not only had sanctuary in Muslim countries (recently died of cancer), but are often treated as heroes by devout followers of Muhammad?

September 11, 2011 was neither the first Muslim terrorist act on American soil nor the last. Since that day, Muslims have killed at least 61 people in 36 separate acts of terrorism in the United States (by the standards that Muslim-American groups set for hate crimes).

A number of mass murder plots against Americans by Islamic terrorists have been thwarted by the FBI, law enforcement and overseas intelligence operations both before and after 9/11, as well as several that were simply botched, such as the attempt to blow up Times Square.

Here’s a brief history of such incidents over the past 35 years – all on American soil:
