Oklahoma beheading suspect Alton Nolen goes by the name Jah’Keem Yisrael on Facebook. His cover photo on the social media platform depicts what has been described as a group of Taliban fighters. If the posts to the Facebook were indeed authored by the beheading suspect, Alton Nolen became deeply involved with the Islamic faith early last year. Almost all of his posts after April 2013 were related to his beliefs about being Muslim.
The final post on the Facebook page believed to be authored by Alton Nolen — Jah’Keem Yisrael — was published on September 23. “This is the last days,” it read.
One Facebook post by the Oklahoma beheading suspect under the Jah’Keem Yisrael Facebook page heading deemed Israel “wicked,” and chastised the United States for not helping the people of Gaza. Alton Nolen reportedly added an “evil-looking” photo of Joker from the Batman comic to the post. Another Jah’Keem Yisrael page post says, “Sharia Law Is Coming!”
A photo allegedly posted on Facebook by the Moore, Oklahoma beheading suspect shows a man who appears to be Alton Nolen, dressed in all-black ISIS style clothing, holding up the one-finger sign commonly used by Islamic State fighters.
Information posted on the Jah’Keem Yisrael Facebook page include one that reads, “[Exactly as written] Ima Tell You Off Top Im Not Your Friend My Friends Are At The Mosque All Around The World. Im an Muslim from the Tribe of Judah who Was Pretty Much Raised In Killeen Texas. My Ancestors Who Are The True Jews Here In America Today Are Originally From Israel. They Were Bombed Outta Israel By The Roman Catholic Army So They Fled To Egypt And The Afrikans Sold Us To The White Man As Slaves Along With Any Other Black Person Here In Amerika Today Aka The True Jews From Israel. Our Ancestors Are Originally From Israel. Were Not from Afrika.”
Another post issued by the man who allegedly beheaded a co-worker at the Vaughan Foods plant says, “[Exactly as written] Christans have some thing where they eat crackers which represents Jesus (Salayi Wa Alayi Salaam ameen) flesh & Drink Cranberry Juice which represents his blood. Dnt u thank that’s kind of evil lol—— WAKE UP ISLAM IS THE TRU RELIGION. This is the last days. America and Israel are wicked Wake up Muslims!!!”
The McCurtain Gazette, a local newspaper, is reporting that Alton Nolen was fired from his job at the Oklahoma plant after an argument about the Muslim faith. If the Oklahoma newspaper report is accurate, Nolen became upset during a debate about an offense women can justifiably be stoned for according to Islamic teachings as he interprets them.
Do you think the Oklahoma beheading suspect was attempting to carry out ISIS urgings to kill Americans, or was Alton Nolen simply a criminal upset over being fired by Vaughan Foods?
