Suspect in Okla. Beheading Had Ties to Radical Islam

By    |   Friday, 26 Sep 2014 10:49 PM

The 30-year-old Oklahoma man who police said beheaded a woman after he was fired from his job at a food-processing plant had ties to radical Islam, including a Facebook page with pictures of Osama bin Laden and phrases that praise Allah and forecast harm to the United States and Israel.

Alton Nolen, who was shot and wounded by the owner of Vaughn Foods while stabbing a second woman, called himself "Jah'Keem Yisrael" on his Facebook page.

His cover picture appears to be of several Taliban fighters, according to a Google reverse image search conducted by The Daily Caller.

"AMERICA SO CALL HELPS IRAQ (WHICH NOT) — WELL WHY CANT U HELP THE GAZA CITIZENS AGAINST ISRAEL … AMERICA AND ISRAEL ARE WICKED. WAKE UP MUSLIMS!!!" he said in a July 24 post that referenced the U.S. intervention in Iraq.

In a post of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Nolen writes: "A Future Prophecy Revelation 18:8 She (The statue Of Liberty) is going into flames. She and anybody who's with her."

The page also features pictures of the World Trade Center in New York City on fire from the attacks.

A Sept. 5 post shows Nolan in Muslim religious clothing standing outside a mosque, presumably in Oklahoma City. He also is reading the Quran in an Aug. 7 post.

Nolen was shot and wounded by the owner of Vaughan Foods after he beheaded Colleen Hufford, 54, with a knife and while he was stabbing Traci Johnson, 43, several times after he had been fired, police said

He recently converted to Islam, and the FBI is determining whether the incident is terror related. Witnesses told police that Nolen was shouting Arabic phrases before Hufford's death.

Mark Vaughan, the company's chief operating officer who shot Nolen, is a reserve sheriff's deputy, police said.

According to police, Nolen had been fired in a building that houses the company's human resources office, then immediately drove to the entrance of the business. Police said they did not know why Nolan was fired.

Both Nolen and Johnson were hospitalized and in stable condition Friday, police said. He has not yet been charged.

His Facebook page dates back to February 2011, and it is replete with posts calling for religious piety, warning of the Judgment Day, and encouraging readers to follow the teachings of the Quran. The page also includes images of the smoking Twin Towers and of someone who was beheaded.

"After The Judgment Day the believers family who follow them in Faith shall join together.

And we shall bestow on them, of fruit and meat," Nolen said in a July 27 post.

"IN ISLAM WE TEACH THAT JESUS WAS NEVER PUT ON THE CROSS THAT HE WAS NEVER CRUCIFIED. IN THE BOOK DEAD SEA SCROLLS THAT WAS TOOKEN OUT THE BIBLE U WILL FIND OUT THAT HE WASN’T," he said in a June 17 post.

That witnesses heard Nolen shouting in Arabic — and the discovery of his ties to radical jihadism — classifies the incident beyond the realm of workplace violence, Chad Sweet, the former chief of staff for the Department of Homeland Security, told Fox News.

"We saw this in the Fort Hood shooting that this administration was afraid to call a spade a spade quickly when the evidence was overwhelming," Sweet told Fox's Megyn Kelly.

Sweet was referring to the killing of 13 people and wounding 30 others in the November 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood in Texas by Army Maj. Nidal Hasan.

Hasan, who objected to being deployed to Afghanistan and was found to have ties to Yemen-based terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki , convicted of 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder and sentenced to death in August 2013.

The Obama administration classified the attack as workplace violence.

"It certainly seems like he snapped upon being fired," added Sweet, now the CEO of the Chertoff Group investment advisory firm, referring to Nolen. "But that doesn't account for the true motivations leading to the anger and the disposition toward committing such a heinous act.

"In all of the workplace violence episodes we've covered, we've never seen somebody beheaded. This is the first American beheading on American soil reportedly in the name of jihad."
