According to KTVA – CBS Alaska, July 26, 2010 by Carolyn Kuckertz, Federal agents say 35-year-old Paul Gene Rockwood, Jr., aka “Bilal”, created a hit list of people he wanted to see executed.
Rockwood was living in Virginia when he converted to Islam around the beginning of 2002. Shortly after converting, he began following the teachings of cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who is known for promoting violent Jihad ideology.
Prosecutors say while studying of al-Awlaki’s teachings, Rockwood developed a “personal conviction that it was his religious responsibility to exact revenge by death on anyone who desecrated Islam.”
Well that’s comforting. A VA man and converts to Islam and creates a hit list of people who desecrated Islam. Here I thought that writing under a pseudo name was being overly cautious.
Islam is an evil ideology, but not because of extremists like Anwar al-Awlaki. Nope. It was Muhammad, who set the example by having people killed for SPEAKING against him or Islam. For example, Muhammad ordered the murder of Abu Afak, a 12o year old Jewish man, who had urged his fellow Medinans to doubt Muhammad. Read about it from several Islamic sources. At the same link is the story of Asma B. Marwan, a female poet, who like Abu Afak had verbally insulted the prophet. She was dead soon afterward too. Take a wild guess who had her killed.
