Last Friday a shooting occurred at a naval air station in Pensacola, Florida, and Crosstalk identified the killer as an airman from Saudi Arabia. Reports indicate that he entered the U.S. in August of 2017 relatively new to the aviation training ‘pipeline.’ Prior to the shooting he allegedly condemned the U.S. as evil. Six Saudi’s were arrested after the attack including 3 who were allegedly filming it.
Breaking this all down was Usama Dakdok. Usama is the founder of the Straight Way of Grace Ministry. He’s the speaker on the daily radio broadcast, ‘Revealing the Truth About Islam.’ He speaks fluent Arabic and has translated the Qur’an into English. Usama is the author of ‘Exposing the Truth About the Qur’an’ and the newly released, ‘Exposing the Truth About Jihad.’
Usama described the shooter, Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, as a true Muslim. This is due to the fact that what he believed is built upon Islamic doctrine; the word of Allah in the Qur’an and the command of Mohammed in the Hadith. So we can’t call people like Mr. Alshamrani, or anyone who practices Islam, an evil Muslim. Instead, according to such teachings, Mr. Alshamrani had the right to hate America because to such individuals, the U.S. is the ‘Great Satan.’
On this informative program you’ll hear the answers to the following:
–How does Usama get around the fact that one of the shooting victims was Muslim?
–What are we to make of comments from the shooter’s uncle?
–How should we view students and others here in America from Saudi Arabia?
–Is it possible that this had nothing to do with Islam and the shooter was just mentally unstable?
