Arkansas Army Recruiting Center Shooter Warns of More Attacks

An American convert to Islam who shot two uniformed American soldiers - one of whom was killed - at a military recruiting center in Little Rock, Arkansas, reportedly searched for information about Jewish institutions on the Internet.

Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, arrested on June 1, 2009, had "political and religious motives," according to Little Rock police. Despite a gag order, Muhammad gave an interview from prison via collect call the week following his arrest. He reportedly said he wanted revenge on the American military and that the attack was "for the sake of God, for the sake of Allah, the Lord of all the world, and also a retaliation on U.S. military."

Muhammad also warned that other Muslims in this country "are going to attack."

"We believe that we have to strike back. We believe in eye for an eye. We don't believe in turning the other cheek," Muhammad said.
