‘Jihad, Jihad, Jihad’: What You Can Learn from the Muslim Oklahoma Beheading Suspect

You can tell a lot about a person by their Facebook posts. Check out Alton Nolen’s, the Oklahoma beheading suspect.

As most people know, a thirty-year-old self-described Muslim by the name of Alton Nolen horrifically murdered a woman in Moore, Oklahoma, on Thursday by beheading her.

Just your average case of “workplace violence,” or a clear act of terror inspired by Islamic extremism?

A look at some of the disturbing posts from what, by all appearances, is Nolen’s Facebook page may provide some clues:

#1. How Nolen updated his Facebook page – in March.


 #2. Nolen posted a picture of 9/11 and condemned the United States.


 #3. Nolen appeared to be upset at the U.S.’ wars in the Middle East and the destruction of mosques.


#4. Weeks ahead of the killing, Nolen showed himself on a trip to an amusement park near Oklahoma City, OK.
