Late Friday, new information about murder suspect Alton Nolen came to light via his hometown newspaper. Nolen, who now goes by Jah’Keem Yisrael, converted to Islam in prison in 2011.
Via Truth Revolt:
Nolen Yisrael is a graduate of Idabel High School in nearby Idabel, Oklahoma, about four hours southeast from Moore where the attack occurred. Nolen was a football player and, by available accounts, not a religious person at the time. A teammate, speaking to Truth Revolt, describes him as “normal” and “a good football player, but not great.”
Local newspaper McCurtain Gazette reports (no online edition is available):A classmate of Nolen’s, who didn’t wish to be identified, told this newspaper that he spoke to a close family member of Nolen’s today.He told this newspaper that according to the family member, Nolen was telling coworkers Thursday of an Islamic teaching that said women should be stoned for an offense, and that an argument followed the mark, Nolen was later fired and returned later Thursday, when he beheaded Colleen Hufford, the family member said.The Gazette reported that Nolen/Yisrael has a long rap sheet, having been arrested “at least 10 times by Idabel police between 2004 and 2009,” on “allegations ranging from assault, burglary, obstructing an officer, resisting arrest, drug possession, and larceny.”

Fox News reporter Trace Gallagher shined a spotlight on Yisrael’s radical Facebook page on The Kelly File.
Kelly also had on Chad Sweet, an former Homeland Security agent and former FBI Assistant deputy Director James Kallstrom for their expert analysis.
Kallstrom responded to Kelly’s question of whether it was proper at this point to characterize the attack as “workplace violence” with disgust.
“No way, Megyn,” he said. “Call it murder, but stop this workplace violence crap.”
The FBI will be looking into all this stuff, he continued. They got to get into this mosque, they gotta get into his internet, and they gotta get into all his associates and they need to get into it, fast.
