Soon after the apparent terrorist attack on Pam Geller’s “Draw Mohammed” art contest in Garland, Texas – which left one police officer wounded, and the two suspected terrorists dead – a now-suspended Twitter account under the user name @AbuHussainAlBritani posted several Tweets supportive of the shooting.
The first Tweets from @AbuHussainAlBritani came a couple of hours before the incident. The user appears to be returning to Twitter after a previous account was suspended, as the first Tweets reads, “Im back, follow & shoutout inshAllah – JazakAllah khair.” (Translation: “As Allah wills – may Allah reward you with goodness.”)
As Breitbart News reported on Sunday night, there was Twitter activity under the hashtag #TexasAttack just minutes before the shooting, from an individual who spoke as if he was one of the attackers.
Here are some Tweets posted after the Garland attack, with translations of the Arabic terms:
Put your egos away and save your own people, your freedom of speech can go to hell, its means nothing to us!
When will the kuffar understand and stop insulting the prophet s.a.w? learn from history & save your people! #Paris #Denmark #Texas (“Kuffar” is a derogatory term for non-Muslims.)
Operation Failed? No. The Honor of The Prophet Muhammad (s.a.) was restored – it was a successful operation Allhamdulilah (“Thanks be to Allah.”)
