Alton Alexander Nolen, a.k.a. Jah’Keem Yisrael was not the only Muslim arrested for threatening a barbaric murder the beheading a fellow employee.
Nolen, according to a report from his home town newspaper in McCurtain, Oklahoma may have been fired for misogynist arguments with female workers about stoning women under Islamic Sharia. On Friday, September 26th, Jacob Mugami Muriithi, a Kenyan Muslim immigrant, was arrested for threatening a fellow Oklahoma City nursing home worker on September 19th with beheading. Muriithi was arrested with bail set at $1 million on a terrorism compliant and currently is being investigated.
The Oklahoman published the details in a report on Sunday, September 28th, “Fired Oklahoma City nursing home worker threatened beheading, police say”:
In a bizarre coincidence, a fired Oklahoma City nursing home employee was arrested Friday after a co-worker reported he threatened to cut her head off. The arrest came on the same day police in Moore revealed fired Vaughan Foods worker Alton Alexander Nolen beheaded a co-worker after he was fired Thursday. Nolen is a Muslim convert.
Murithi was identified as a native of Kenya who is living in Oklahoma City. He worked at Bellevue Nursing Home in northwest Oklahoma City, police reported.
The co-worker reported Muriithi threatened her while they were both working at the nursing home Sept. 19, a police detective wrote in an arrest warrant affidavit.
The woman was not identified.
She said Muriithi identified himself as a Muslim and said he “represented ISIS and that ISIS kills Christians,” the detective told a judge in the affidavit. The two had not worked together before.
The woman said she asked him why they kill Christians and he replied, “This is just what we do,” the detective reported.
“The victim said Jacob asked her what time she got off work and she replied by asking him in a joking manner if he was going to kill her,’ the detective wrote. “Jacob told the victim, ‘Yes,’ he was going to cut her head off. The victim asked Jacob what he was going to cut her head off with and he said, ‘A blade,’ then told her after he did it he was going to post it on Facebook.
“The victim said Jacob was serious when speaking and never made any statements that he was joking or playing around.”
The woman reported Muriithi repeated the threat as she left work, saying in front of another employee that he was going to use a blade, the detective reported.
Nolen may have been a jailhouse convert to Islam, while Muriithi was a Muslim immigrant. Both appeared to have been motivated by the graphic portrayal of beheadings of American victims, journalists, James Foley and Steven Sotloff, as well British aid worker, David Haines. They may have been entreated to follow the Qur’anic imperative in Sura 47:4:
Yusuf Ali: Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens. Thus (are ye commanded): but if it had been Allah’s Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the Way of Allah, – He will never let their deeds be lost.
We know that Nolen’s social media was redolent of such hatred and support of ISIS’ barbarity. We await further details on the investigation of the beheading threat by Muriithi to determine if he was similarly influenced by social media or by the preaching of radical local Imams among the 18 Mosques in Metro Oklahoma City serving the estimated 18,000 Muslims in the Sooner State. With Muriithi’s arrest, the beheading murder by Nolen appears not to be an isolated workplace violence incident. We will be shortly publishing an interview in the October NER with Dr. Michael Welner, noted forensic psychiatrist and expert witness in major criminal and terrorism cases.
