Alton Nolen, 30, the man suspected of beheading a woman and stabbing another co-worker in Moore, Oklahoma, reportedly goes by the name Jah’Keem Yisrael on his Facebook page, which appears to feature a group of Taliban fighters as a cover photo.
If reports that the Facebook page belongs to Nolen are accurate, it seems that Nolen had submersed himself in the Islamic faith as nearly all of his posts after April of 2013 are connected to Islam.
In one post, Nolen calls America and Israel “wicked” while criticizing the U.S. for not helping people in Gaza over Israel. Included in the post is an evil-looking picture of the Joker from the Batman series.
In another post featuring a photo of Pope Benedict, he wrote: “SHARIA LAW IS COMING!!!!”
Read additional quotes from his Facebook page below:
• “I JST WANT TO SAY AS AN MUSLIM WE DNT CELEBRATE AMERIKAS HOLIDAYS.”
• “Ima Tell You Off Top Im Not Your Friend My Friends Are At The Mosque All Around The World,” he wrote in a description of himself. “Im an Muslim from the Tribe of Judah who Was Pretty Much Raised In Killeen Texas. My Ancestors Who Are The True Jews Here In America Today Are Originally From Israel. They Were Bombed Outta Israel By The Roman Catholic Army So They Fled To Egypt And The Afrikans Sold Us To The White Man As Slaves Along With Any Other Black Person Here In Amerika Today Aka The True Jews From Israel. Our Ancestors Are Originally From Israel. Were Not from Afrika.”
• “Christans have some thing where they eat crackers which represents Jesus (Salayi Wa Alayi Salaam ameen) flesh & Drink Cranberry Juice which represents his blood.
Dnt u thank that’s kind of evil lol—— WAKE UP ISLAM IS THE TRU RELIGION”
It was also reported by local newspaper McCurtain Gazette that Nolen was fired from his job at Vaughan Foods over an argument about an Islamic teaching that justifies women being stoned for an offense, according to Truth Revolt. He returned later that same day and allegedly carried out the murderous plan.
The New York Times also reported on the Facebook page Friday:
Law enforcement officials said Mr. Nolen recently converted to Islam. On a Facebook page that appears to be his, references to Islam began in April 2013, and he called himself Jah’Keem Yisrael. The page is filled with criticism of American culture, and dire warnings for those who do not follow that religion.
“This is the last days,” he wrote in his most recent post, on Tuesday. In another, in July, he wrote: “AMERICA AND ISRAEL ARE WICKED. WAKE UP MUSLIMS!!!”

Nolen allegedly beheaded Colleen Hufford, 54, and then stabbed Traci Johnson, 43, multiple times before he was shot by Mark Vaughan, a reserve sheriff’s deputy and Vaughan Foods chief operating officer.
Police have yet to confirm Nolen’s motivation in the killing or the reason for his firing.
