Immediately after a press conference by local authorities regarding two murders, one of which included a beheading, local Muslims in Oklahoma surrounded police and shouted, “Praise Allah!” Presumably this was not meant as general praise for their deity but a reference to the murders and beheading.

During the press conference, several said, “Praise Allah,” though they did not shout or create a disturbance, and others read from the Koran during the presentation by local authorities.

In a separate report, the Daily Caller notes that Oklahoma beheading suspect Alton Alexander Nolen’s Facebook page includes paeans to Islamic radicals, declares his attachment to radical Islam and hatred of America, and disparages Christianity:

“Ima Tell You Off Top Im Not Your Friend My Friends Are At The Mosque All Around The World,” he wrote in a description of himself. “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.” . . .

“You know what gets me about Christians is that they blaspheme saying that Jesus (pbus Ameen) is God. If Jesus (pbuh Ameen) was God why when you claim he was on a cross he quoted Quote’ Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing? With this said he can’t be the Savior. All Praise To Allah,” he wrote in another caption.
