Is the Oklahoma Beheading the First ‘Lone Wolf’ Attack in America?

The beheading of a woman in Oklahoma has raised fears that this is the first “lone wolf” attack on U.S. soil by a homeland terrorist sympathetic to the cause of ISIS.

In recent weeks the U.S. and allies launched massive airstrikes against ISIS in Iraq and Syria. In the wake of those bombings, the Department of Homeland Security issued a warning for people to be vigilant against “lone wolf” style revenge attacks.

On September 18, Australian cops busted an alleged plot from ISIS sympathizers to publicly behead members of the public.

And on September 21, an audio address from ISIS called on Muslims to kill disbelievers:

If you can kill a disbelieving American or European … or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State … kill him in any manner or way however it may be …

The news that Colleen Hufford was beheaded in Oklahoma in a manner similar to U.S. journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff was followed by word that her alleged attacker, Alton Nolen, had been attempting to convert his Vaughn Foods co-workers to Islam.

Then his Facebook page was discovered, showing a man with deep-seated resentment of America. This post, on March 3, includes a list of America’s sins, saying the Statue of Liberty is “going to flames. She and anybody who’s with her”:

Nolen’s Facebook page, where he goes by the name Jah’keem Yisrael, includes this post listing the sins of “Amerika.”

There is no known direct link from Nolen to ISIS. But his radicalism is evident, he has perpetrated a beheading in the style of extremist terrorists, and his alleged crime occurs shortly after a call from ISIS to kill infidels. What do you think? Is this our first “lone wolf” terror attack in America? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

Yes it’s an attack, but no it’s not the first. There are dozens of incidents every day in the US worldwide that look like mideast style terrorism even though most of the perpetrators are not from the mideast, and just look like random crazy people. Nobody recognizes terrorism as a possible motive. The KGB used to commission grisly crimes a long time ago, but of course nobody has any idea where all the mass or single killings are coming from these days:


This moron has apparently never spent any time in the Middle East or broader Islamic world. Homosexuality exists there. Marijuana use is very common in many Arab and predominately Muslim countries. Gambling and corruption exist in infinite varieties. Lust also exists there, and is frustrated in some areas by stupid religious bigots like himself…men without pussy tend to express themselves violently.

Who gives a shit about pork, or circumcision? Religious scumnut.

It is clear to me that this is an ISIS related crime. Yes it was sparked by his termination, but this could very well be an ISIS lone wolf attack that was veiled by his retaliation from losing his job. The FB post, the beheading, and his attempts to convert coworkers make it obvious to me. Perhaps there is concern this will freak people out, so the govt is afraid to link him to ISIS definitively. People can put two and two together. As I said, it is obvious that he is linked to or sympathetic to ISIS. We should all use extreme caution and report anything suspicious to the FBI. President Obama should speak to the nation about this issue and urge all Americans to be careful. Any suspiciois individuals should be immediately arrested. This is not something that should be dealt with accorsing to the Penal Code, but as a war crime, umtil probed otherwise. This is an act of war on American soil. I think ISIS is laughing now because they have succeeded in making the govt think it was work retaliation.

God bless and protect America!

The “First lone wolf attack in America”? Are you kidding? How about the Muslim who just murdered 19 year old Brendan Tevlin in NJ, while he was stopped at a red light on his way home from a friend’s house? What about the military recruiters murdered by a Muslim in Alabama a few years ago? What about the Fort Hood massacre?

Jihad is here and it will just get worse!
