Muslim GI To Al-Jazeera: I Won’t Deploy

From Al Jazeera, via MEMRI:


Muslim US Serviceman Nasser Abdo Talks to Al-Jazeera TV about His Refusal to Deploy to Afghanistan

Muslim U.S. Serviceman Nasser Abdo Talks to Al-Jazeera TV from Fort Campbell about His Refusal to Deploy to Afghanistan

August 31, 2010

Following are excerpts from an Al-Jazeera TV report about Muslim U.S. soldier Nasser Abdo, who has refused to be deployed to Afghanistan. The report aired on August 21, 2010, and included clips of Abdo praying in his home while wearing his Army camouflage uniform. According to the report, his wife in Canada runs a website to raise money for Abdo’s legal campaign, and he has retained a lawyer.

"This Muslim Soldier is Refusing to be Sent with His Unit because … as a Muslim He is Forbidden to Kill Muslims"

We certainly have seen a lot of proof of this.

Reporter: "The Muslim U.S. soldier Nasser Abdo prays five times a day where he lives near the Fort Campbell base in Kentucky, from where some 5,000 soldiers are to be sent to Afghanistan as part of President Obama’s plan, which strives to eliminate the Taliban. Abdo’s fellow soldiers are preparing for deployment to Afghanistan soon, according to their orders. But this Muslim soldier is refusing to be sent with his unit, because, he exclaims, as a Muslim he is forbidden to kill Muslims."

Nasser Abdo: "I don’t believe I can involve myself in an army that wages war against Muslims. I don’t believe I could sleep at night if I take part, in any way, in the killing of a Muslim."

Does Mr. Abdo ever read the newspapers or watch the evening news?

Reporter: "Nasser says that he has chosen to live his life according to the teachings of Islam. Therefore, he has requested – in accordance with U.S. law – to be discharged from service, because this runs counter to the teachings of his religion. But he says that his commanders have been procrastinating, and to this day, have not given him a clear answer. He has decided not to go to Afghanistan, even though he knows that he might face two years in prison."

Nasser Abdo: "They haven’t processed my packet at all. I even heard from my unity commander that they lost my military record. I can’t deploy with my unit to Afghanistan and participate in the war – I can’t both deploy and be a Muslim."

"Army sources Told Al-Jazeera TV that the Serviceman Nasser would Not be Sent to Afghanistan within the Next Few Days"

Reporter: "The armed command at Fort Campbell issued a written statement in response to our questions regarding the case of serviceman Nasser Abdo, according to which the U.S. army recognizes that a soldier’s religious beliefs may change over time. It said, however, that discharge is an administrative procedure that takes six months.

"Army sources told Al-Jazeera TV that the serviceman Nasser would not be sent to Afghanistan within the next few days, and that his application was under review, but the final decision whether to send him to Afghanistan or not was up to his direct commander in Fort Campbell. For his part, serviceman Nasser Abdo expects to get his deployment orders at any moment.

"It is a military secret, and therefore serviceman Nasser Abdo cannot tell us when his unit will be headed to Afghanistan. It will, however, be soon, and Abdo will not be with them. He will, apparently, be facing a prison sentence.

"He has one lawyer, and his wife from Canada runs a website to raise money to finance his defense. The family of serviceman Nasser Abdo is preparing for a lengthy and bitter legal battle.

"This is Nasser Hussein, Al-Jazeera TV, from Kentucky."

Mr. Abdo should be headed to prison for giving comfort to the enemy.

    Only 2 years in jail?
    He should serve a life sentence for enlisting and then refusing to serve; that might make other pantywaists think before enlisting for the bennies when they’re not willing to serve.

  2. Tater Salad says:

    Bad Conduct Discharge or Conscientious Objector will be the issue!

  3. CocoCon says:

    My response is just to feel disgust at the antiwar movement’s sudden disinterest in this war.

    How odd that someone enlists in the armed services, is assigned to a combat unit and now has an objection to killing the jihadis who are bent on de-stabilizing the world. Might Awlaki have a hand in this travesty?

    • wardmama4 says:

      More than that are the schools and training this young man received cost free – and now – suddenly as he is about to deploy – he decides that (even though he struggled from basic on with ‘orders conflicting with his muslim requirement to pray 5 times a day) – he can’t remain a muslim in the military.

      He enlisted in 2008 (let’s see – that would make him 18) – he also stated that although from a mixed family (father muslim, mother non-denominational Christian) he reclaimed his muslim faith in his late teens – I’d like to know, if it was before he joined (not a C.O. an idiot) or after (which smacks of an intentional desire to either get an education or attack the military from within).

      He knew in 2008 that the US was at war with muslims – thus he really qualifies for stupid – or perhaps he really believed The Won and thought he’d never be deploy – which means once again – he qualifies as stupid.

      I wish that the Army would fry his a** – go for the max at a Court Martial and have him not only forfeiting all pay – but paying back for as long as it takes every single penny they spent training this piece of lying garbage – preferably at Ft Leavenworth.

      But alas they will probably let him off with a Less than Honorable – just to be rid of him.

  6. untrainable says:

    There must be some legal recourse for the army beyond a dishonerable discharge and 2 years in prison. This guy signed up and is now refusing to serve! If his religion prevents him from killing muslims (pretty whacky considering how many muslims are killed by muslims every day), how is it that any muslims are allowed to serve in the armed forces?

    Sounds like jihad to me. He can kill anyone as long as they’re infidels? This guy should be held up for treason. And by held up, I mean by the neck with a really tight rope necktie.

  7. proreason says:

    If a muslim volunteer in the US military gets to pick his deployments (after receiving training worth thousands of dollars), shouldn’t any American citizen get to pick the government policies we choose to support with our taxes?

  8. beautyofreason says:

    Interesting.

    “I don’t believe I can involve myself in an army that wages war against Muslims.”

    So he considers the Taliban, whose policies included severing the fingers of women who wear nail polish, to be fellow Muslims.

    Remember that the next time an imam says “that is not Islam” in response to brutality by the so-called radicals.

    This Muslim GI has placed his concern for men who throw acid in the faces of young girls above his responsibility to the United States.

    And he knew what he was getting into. Did he miss the part about the Gulf War?

  9. oldpuppydixie says:

    Dear Mr. Abdo,

    You Muslims have been killing each other–including women and children–for 1400 years! It’s what you DO BEST!! Indeed you HIDE BEHIND Muslim females and kids as you shoot!! Naturally our highly PC, Hussein run military will do NOTHING to this sub human vermin. That would be Islamophobic, after all.

  10. hushpuppy says:

    The single biggest mistake any western, freedom-loving, Judeo-Christian country has ever made was to let muslims enlist thus teaching the enemy to betray us from within while keeping in contact with their muslim home countries and teaching them what they know about the inner workings of the military.

    They’ve been actively sought as translators: anyone remember how the military were to have a half dozen of the parasites over for a birthday party, and when the ‘guests’ showed up they blew themselves up and murdered some dozen or so military personnel?

    And as such they’ve been placed into positions both in the field as well as the CIA, FBI, and overseas ops.

    That muslim GI needs to swing off a lamp post. And wardmama? You’re quite likely correct: He probably signed up to get an education in his chosen field…

    What in the hell will it take for people to realize that muslims should never be trusted?

  11. Mae says:

    Expect him next to be in the news when he pulls an Adam Gadahn or John Walker!

  12. canary says:

    1. He volunteered knowing his duty
    2. Muslims kill themselves & other muslims all the time.

    “It said, however, that discharge is an administrative procedure that takes six months.”

    This is true. Even wounded military who can not perform their military duties anymore wait sometimes a year before they are discharged. There are plenty of jobs for them to do while they wait. I remember a guy who shot himself in the foot and they gave him a sit down job, and during the time he dealt drugs, killed a civilian (got away with it) finally he was forging prescription from the military foot doctor. I was glad as he was scar

    Look at Major Hasan. He had no orders to go overseas & if he had it would be to save lives not kill muslims. He was pursuing to get out of the mililtary and meanwhile at the military’s own admittance they needed doctors, but I believe the patients got the wrong kind of survivor guilt soldiers bring back.

    Why I Personally believe Abdo needs to be thrown in the stockade and spend years in prison.

    He has trained with these Ft. Campbell soldiers and he could share their tactics, learned their weapons, and the military wasted money on him for nothing. I think he joined under false pretenses, so he could play the religious car.

    “I even heard from my unity commander that they lost my military record.”

    Why do I fear that isn’t a misprint?

    “I don’t believe I could sleep at night if I take part, in any way, in the killing of a Muslim.”

    If I had my way you POS you’d have a lot of trouble sleeping when fellow inmate Bubba wanted to give you his “special massage” every night too!

  14. Chase says:

    And his wife lives in Canada? Hmmmm, sounds like there was a premeditated agenda here…have to wonder if his unit was aware of that, or if CID has been looking into this POS’ cyber- and social-networking contacts and activity.

  15. Chinnubie says:

    Chase, I thought the same thing why is she in Canada?? Most wives of military personel are with their husbands aren’t they??

    These kinds of storie continue to prove my point about who Muslims really are, when they have a chance to put the violent Muslims out of commission they refuse, regardless of punishment. This clown nows he’ll be able to write a freaking book about the horrible mistreatment by the US military for him not wanting to go kill Muslims.

    This was thought up and planned I have no DOUBT!!!!!

    Pig’s blood soaked .45 cal reprimand is in order. Sorry bud, but this is called desertion in my book. News flash, we have been fighting muslims almost exclusively since the gulf war (and many times in the past it so happens) so this info is nothing new, although it is kind of telling to the American people, provided they choose to stop being duped about the “religion” of islam. To borrow from a bumper sticker I recently saw about George Bush, this boob is a “punk ass chump”.

  18. Reality Bytes says:

    How do you spell FRAG again?

  19. Liberals Demise says:

    I am not surprised……….learn our tactics and employ them on the battlefield against us.
    Wonderful!!

    Hope the boys in Leavenworth have fun with this Muslim POS.

  21. hushpuppy says:

    Would you believe this bag of puke has the temerity to say he’s a ‘conscientious objector’?

    Real conscientious objectors have a long history and the criteria for that status doesn’t mesh with what he is. (Nothing muslims do makes sense even to other muslims.)

    ……and IF he were a genuine conscientious objector, he never would have enlisted in the first place!!
