An antiwar group calling itself Courage to Resist started a legal defense fund for Pfc. Naser Abdo, the Muslim soldier arrested Wednesday who reportedly admitted planning to launch a terror attack on Fort Hood’s army base, KleinOnline has learned.Oops.
The organization last year also featured Abdo in its newsletter, branding him a “Muslim peacemaker.”
Less than a year after the Fort Hood shooting massacre by Muslim U.S. Army major Nidal Malik Hasan, Abdo was caught this week with a bomb in a backpack and weapons stashed in a motel room meant for another attack at the same army base.
Yesterday, RawStory.com reported Abdo has ties to a number of antiwar organizations, including Iraq Veterans Against the War and Courage to Resist.
Both groups supported Abdo’s petition for conscientious objector status, which he was eventually granted after he wrote in an application that he was conflicted about “whether going to war was the right thing to do Islamically.”
KleinOnline has learned that Courage to Resist initiated a legal defense fund for Abdo’s conscientious objector petition. The fund is still available online.
In its December 2010 newsletter, Courage to Resist promoted Abdo as a “Muslim Peacemaker.”
The group wrote an item on Abdo entitled, “The missing story of a Muslim peacemaker.”
Stated the newsletter: “The problem is that almost the only time Muslims are featured in the media is when a Muslim engages in an act of violence. A one-sided focus on violence committed by some Muslims fuels the racist narrative that “Islam is a religion of violence”— which underwrites the so-called “Global War on Terror.”
