Alkattoul sent a document that he wrote, titled “When Swords Collide,” to an individual on a social media app, according to the press release. Referring to the document, Alkattoul told the individual that “it’s in the context of an attack on Jews,” according to the press release.
Another individual said that the document was sent to at least five other people, the U.S. attorney’s office said.
According to the U.S. attorney’s office, Alkattoul’s document says, “I am the attacker and I would like to introduce myself ... I am a Muslim with so many regrets but I can assure you this attack is not one of them and Insha’Allah many more attacks like these against the enemy of Allah and the pigs and monkeys will come.”
“This attack was just to remind the Jews that as long as 1 Muslim remains in this world they will never live a pleasant life until the Muslims in Palestine, Syria, West Africa, and South Asia are living a pleasant life. The Jews support terror against the muslimeen and they always have. ... So the motive of this attack is hatred towards Jews and their heinous acts and I don’t want anyone to tell me for a second that ‘not all Jews support terror against Muslims’ yes they do! They have since day one. Their Torah justifies their acts and let’s keep in mind it was a Jew that tried to kill the nebi SAW,” the document says.
A criminal complaint filed by the FBI shows that Alkattoul sent private messages to an individual expressing his approval of Dylann Roof, the South Carolina man who shot and killed nine members of a Black South Carolina congregation during a Bible study session.
In the messages, Alkattoul called the victims of the massacre the “n” word and also called them “christcucks.” He said that Muslims in the West should learn from Roof, according to the complaint.
