You’d think an American terrorist, who grew up in Florida and liked former drug dealer (and attempted murderer) Jay-Z, would come up with a fiercer terrorist name than “The American With a Kitten” (Abu Hurayra Al-Amriki). But Florida “boy” Moner Abu-Salha–the son of a devout Palestinian Muslim and a dumb White chick who converted to Islam–became a jihadist and killed others and himself. So, don’t let the kitten in the photo or his effeminate love of cats fool ya. Oh, and this “kid” became a jihadist by going to the mosque and following Islam along with the rest of his family.
American Homicide Bomber Islamic Jihadist Abu Hurayra Liked Cats & Jay-Z
As you read this, remember that there are plenty of Moner Abu-Salhas a/k/a Abu Hurayra Al-Amrikis all over America ready to be activated. And they won’t confine their jihadism to Syria. They are already bringing it back home for you and me.
VERO BEACH, Fla.—Years before he became an alleged suicide bomber in Syria, Moner Abu-Salha was known as a friendly, sociable young man in a tidy, gated neighborhood, here where he grew up. “He was a normal, everyday kid,” said Mark Hill, who lives across the street from Mr. Abu-Salha’s parents. “He was very pleasant, very polite.”
Um, aren’t they all? Not like he was stupid enough to tell everyone, “You stupid infidel, I’m a terrorist!”
It is a starkly different picture from the one U.S. officials painted on Friday, saying Mr. Abu-Salha was believed to be the first American to carry out a suicide bomb attack in the Syrian civil war. Officials gave his name, saying they had more than one spelling of it, and said he was believed to have died in a truck-bomb explosion last weekend. He was 22 years old, according to public records. . . . Neighbors, friends and acquaintances . . . said in recent years he had changed, adopting a more religious posture.
Mr. Abu-Salha, whose father was from Jordan [DS: that means he's a Palestinian, as 95% of Jordanian Muslims are] and whose mother was an American who converted to Islam [DS: another dumbassette desperado lookin' for love in all the wrong places], grew up in an observant Muslim household, said Jessica Miller, a friend of Mr. Abu-Salha’s younger sister. The father—who has owned grocery stores, according to public records [DS: hey, how convenient: an all-cash business]—was strict and expected to have dinner ready and the house in order when he returned from work, she said. Mr. Abu-Salha and his wife are still partial owners of the Al-Noor Grocery Inc. in Melbourne, Fla., according to a woman who answered the phone there. She declined to comment further.
Mr. Abu-Salha’s mother wears a traditional head covering, and neighbors said she is friendly and frequently seen walking around the neighborhood, part of an East Coast Florida community just north of West Palm Beach. . . . The family used to own a house in the neighborhood, but it went into foreclosure around 2009 or 2010, said Bill Miller, Ms. Miller’s father. The family now rents a different house down the street, he said.
Mr. Miller described Mr. Abu-Salha, who was friends with his son in high school, as both good-natured and “macho”—playing lightheartedly with Mr. Miller’s son one minute and roughhousing with him the next. Though the Millers said Mr. Abu-Salha didn’t generally have disciplinary problems in high school, he was suspended for fighting at one point. Some students teased Mr. Abu-Salha after seeing his mother wearing a head covering, and the boys scuffled, Mr. Miller said.
Yup, whenever Muslims are violent blame it on the “Islamophobia” of infidels. Uh-huh.
Michael Marine said he played basketball with Mr. Abu-Salha a few years ago, but lost touch. “He was a pretty funny kid. Outgoing and pretty friendly for the most part” although obviously religious, Mr. Marine said. “There was nothing strange about him.” Mr. Abu-Salha withdrew from high school before graduating and later obtained his equivalency from St. James Academy Inc. in nearby Fort Pierce, Ms. Miller said. St. James confirmed Mr. Abu-Salha’s graduation. He lived with his older brother for a while in Fort Pierce and later in Orlando, she said.
A spokesman for Seminole State College of Florida said Mr. Abu-Salha attended both Keiser University and Indian River State College before enrolling there in August 2011. Mr. Abu-Salha pursued a general college transfer degree, but dropped out around February 2012.
Though Mr. Abu-Salha dressed like many of his peers in high school, his appearance changed after leaving, Ms. Miller said. He grew his beard out, and on one occasion around 2012, she said she saw him dressed in a long Muslim robe. She said the family sometimes traveled to Jordan to visit relatives, and she knows of at least one trip in recent years that Mr. Abu-Salha took alone to the Middle East. But she said she didn’t know any details about it.
Orlando Taylor, who was friends with Mr. Abu-Salha and his older brother in high school and later lived in Orlando when the two were there, said the younger sibling became more devoted to his religion in recent years. Most days, Mr. Abu-Salha wore a long robe. He would regularly read the Quran, sing passages from it and pray. “That became his priority,” said Mr. Taylor, who accompanied Mr. Abu-Salha to a mosque on a few occasions. “He surrounded his life around that.”
Despite his increasingly religious demeanor, Mr. Abu-Salha recounted many episodes of revelry on his Facebook page during his time in Orlando around 2012, Mr. Miller said. “I guess he was sowing his wild oats, living away from his parents,” he said. “To me, that’s contradictory. Supposedly if you’re going to be religious, it’s not conducive to going out and partying.”
Um, actually, they are hypocrites. They profess devotion and denigrate us infidels, but they are phonies who party like there’s no tomorrow, then attack Westerners as sluts and slobs.
Although what appears to be Mr. Abu-Salha’s Facebook page has since been removed, it stated he was a passionate fan of the Miami Heat basketball team. His favorite artists included Jay Z, and favorite TV shows were CSI Vegas and South Park. He also “liked” the Quran. The more recent photos show an unsmiling man with a longer beard along his jaw line. In one, he flexes his biceps.
A jihadi website has circulated a photo allegedly of the bomber . . . . The photo, however, appears to be a match similar to those on the Facebook page. The suicide bomber was known by a nom de guerre, Abu Hurayra Al-Amriki, or “the one with the kitten, the American.” The first part of the name stems from an early Islamic religious figure. The photo circled by the jihadists showed a bearded man holding a kitten.
Like I said, more of him all over America waiting for the chance to blow up others. And not just in Syria. Here on American soil, too. Borders are artificial distinctions without a difference to Muslims.
Next time, it will be “the American With the Puppy,” and he’ll be planning to blow you up. Not the Syrians.
That’s allah’s plan. And Islam’s.
