Fort Hood Shooter on Hunger Strike
Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan has declared he is going on a hunger strike, according to a letter written from his death row cell at the United States Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
In the letter, dated March 27, Hasan said he is going on a hunger strike and reduce to 99 pounds to protest "America’s hatred for (Shariah) Laws.”
“I will reduce and then maintain a total body weight of 99 pounds,” Hasan writes. “I hope this will also serve as a reminder of how weak the Muslim Ummah [community] is and as a reminder to the believers of the importance of following God’s Laws despite the disbelievers hatred for it. And most of mankind are disbelievers!”
Personally I'd like to see him show a little more commitment and do this until his body weight reached zero, but may he live in hunger for his remaining days.
