JERUSALEM – U.S. law enforcement agencies were in touch with the Palestinian Authority and Israel yesterday to garner information on Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the man accused of killing 13 people at Fort Hood in Texas, WND has learned.
Hasan is from a Palestinian Muslim family that is still present in a Palestinian village outside of Jerusalem, PA and Israeli security sources told WND.
Hasan's parents moved to the U.S. from a Palestinian town near Jerusalem. He was born in Virginia.
Hasan has a brother who still lives outside Jerusalem, said the PA and Israeli sources. The brother did not return WND calls for comment.
According to initial information provided to WND by PA and Israeli sources, Hasan's family is not on any list of Palestinians with known connections to Islamic militants.
"Upon immediate inspection, the family seems to be regular. Nothing special stands out," said a PA security source.
Still, Israel and the PA began an investigation last night into the family's history and ties.
Hasan is suspected of shouting "Allahu Akbar," Arabic for "Allah is greatest," and using two handguns in the massacre at Fort Hood that also left dozens injured.
"He said Muslims had a right to attack" the U.S., said Col. Terry Lee, who worked with Hasan at the Texas post, where the devout Sunni Muslim reportedly objected to his upcoming ndeployment.
"He said Muslims shouldn't be fighting Muslims," he added. "He was very clear on that."
According to an explosive new book, "Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America," Hasan is just the tip of a jihadist Fifth Column operating within the ranks of the U.S. military – which is too blinded by political correctness to see the threat.

Quoting from a classified military briefing, "Muslim Mafia" reveals that this Fifth Column has penetrated "every branch of the U.S. military." The Islamist enemy has even infiltrated the al-Qaida detention camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
