I guess Abdulhakim Muhammad just snapped after watching videos of alleged American atrocities against Muslims, but it couldn't have had anything to do with Islam. After all, to assume as much just makes on an Islamophobe.

Islam Convert After Revenge For U.S. Acts
LITTLE ROCK — A Memphis-born convert to Islam became delusional after watching a video of alleged U.S. atrocities against Muslims in the Middle East and drove through three states seeking revenge before shooting one soldier dead and wounding another outside a military recruiting center in Little Rock, a lawyer for the accused killer told a jury at his trial Wednesday.
Abdulhakim Muhammad had a small arsenal in his SUV when he was stopped after the shooting, including an assault rifle and more than 600 rounds of ammunition. He told the police officer there “was a war going on against Muslims ... a holy war,” jurors at his capital-murder trial heard.
Muhammad, 26, could face the death penalty if convicted in the June 2009 shooting spree that left Army Pvt. Andrew Long of Conway dead and Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula of Jacksonville wounded.
In opening arguments Wednesday, defense lawyer Patrick Benca said his client was unstable and suffering from a mental defect at the time of the shootings.
Yes, the defect of Islam.
