Six Saudis detained after Florida naval base shooting

Six Saudi nationals were detained for questioning on Friday after  Saudi Air Force second lieutenant Mohammed Saeed Al-Shamrani shot three people dead and injured 8 others at the Naval Air Station Pensacola in Florida before he was taken down. Three of the Saudis filmed the shooting as it happened and were detained as a terror probe was launched.  Al-Shamrani is suspected of releasing an online manifesto that slammed the US as a ‘nation of evil’ prior to the attack. He arrived in 2017 for a three-year aviation training course in the US . At present, 18 Saudi air force naval aviators and two aircrew members were training with the US Navy, including at Pensacola, according to a November 15 press release from the Navy. Saudi Air Force officers selected for military training in the United States are intensely vetted by both countries. Air force personnel usually come from the Saudi elite.

    You would think that after 9/11, the US would have learnt that Saudis and flight training in the US is a bad idea.

    Al-Shamrani and his fellow Islamists just proved again that you can’t risk “vetting” members of any murder-cult. Every westerner needs to realize you can never take this form of sacrificial slaughter (Jihad) out of Islam. Islamists — even when educated at our best western universities — will still retain the heart of the murderous savage who gave form to the cult. This is because Jihad is a “meta-belief” seated at the very foundations of the Muslim world view. Jihad is intertwined with the way anyone in the cult can have hope of giving delight to their dark god. In turn, the murderer becomes a cult hero. The family of any murderer will always be held in high esteem from that point on. Like all murder-cults, this form of sacrificial murder is intertwined with the very nature of their demon god. You cannot take this form of ambush murder out of Islam, if you do, then you do not have Islam any more. By the way, our state department is dominated by Arabists who are half-western, but all Islam. This is why so many Islamics are now being brought into the U.S.

    Doesn’t Koran allow Muslims to lie in order to defend and propagate its influence? Unlike Judea-Christian values, Islam allows this. Why don’t people know this?

    They need to be turned over to their own country, the Saudis don’t want to lose face. In other words they will be tortured legally there setting an example.
