Join Meir Panim’s campaign to “light up” Chanukah for families in need.
An anti-war group calling itself Courage to Resist started a legal defense fund for Pfc. Naser Abdo, the Muslim soldier arrested Wednesday who reportedly admitted planning a terror attack on Fort Hood soldiers, this column has learned.
The organization last year also featured Abdo, 21, in its newsletter, branding him a “Muslim peacemaker.”
Less than a year after the Fort Hood shooting massacre by Muslim U.S. Army major Nidal Malik Hasan, Abdo was caught last week with a bomb in a backpack and weapons stashed in a motel room meant for another attack at the base.
RawStory.com reported that Abdo has ties to a number of antiwar organizations, including Iraq Veterans Against the War and Courage to Resist.
Both groups supported Abdo’s petition for conscientious objector status, which he was eventually granted after he wrote in an application he that he was conflicted about “whether going to war was the right thing to do Islamically.”
This column has learned that Courage to Resist initiated a legal defense fund for Abdo’s conscientious objector petition. The fund is still available online.
In its December 2010 newsletter, Courage to Resist promoted Abdo as a “Muslim peacemaker.” The group wrote an item on Abdo entitled “The missing story of a Muslim peacemaker.”
