Abdulhakim Muhammad had just returned from a failed attempt to firebomb a home he believed belonged to a Nashville rabbi when he opened fire on an Army recruiting station here, killing Pvt. William Andrew Long and wounding Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula.
Opening statements have concluded in the capital murder trial against Muhammad, who was born Carlos Bledsoe in Memphis, Tenn., but changed his name after he began practicing Islam in Nashville while attending Tennessee State University.
And AP just discovered this:
A man who pleaded guilty to shooting two soldiers outside a military recruiting station in Arkansas says in a letter to the FBI that he also targeted the home of a rabbi in Little Rock.A jihadist who is also a Jew-hater. What a shock.
In a handwritten confession mailed to the FBI, Abdulhakim Muhammad says he fired 10 rounds at the home of Rabbi Eugene Levy (LEE'-vee) days before he shot and killed Pvt. William Andrew Long and wounded Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula (ee-ZEEG'-wuh-luh).
