Chattanooga attack: Gunman Abdulazeez ‘sent war text’

Richard Valdmanis writes in the Independent:

HOURS before the Tennessee shooting that killed five U.S. servicemen, the suspected gunman texted a close friend a link to an Islamic verse that included the line: “Whosoever shows enmity to a friend of Mine, then I have declared war against him.”

Robert Spencer explains:

This is one of the Hadith Qudsi — the holy hadith, in which Muhammad quotes Allah saying something that is not in the Qur’an. They are considered on par with the Qur’an itself. In any case, clearly this verse refers to being an enemy to those who are supposedly fighting the Muslims — that is, U.S. military personnel.

The family of Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez is claiming he was depressed and the press is jumping all over it as though that is a sufficient explanation for the attack. Many people suffer depression, only Muslims find a way out of their depression through jihad.
