A Staten Island Muslim planned to join the Army so he could be deployed to Iraq. Once there, he would join the jihadis (Taliban) to kill American troops. Abdel Shehadeh, a U.S. citizen, went so far as to try to enlist at the Army recruiting station in Times Square.
"He's just a regular kid." said his cousin.
Yes, I am sure he is. He found his religion, Islam.
What all the obfuscators and islamic apologists refuse to address is that the millions of jihadis all quote the same book, the same chapters, the same verses, the non-abrogated (later, more violent) chapters of the qur'an.
This is is jihad.
