US airman: I saw hate in Frankfurt shooter's eyes

The statement came during Uka’s trial on Monday for the March attack which has been called the first ever jihadist attack on German soil.

Staff Sgt. Trevor Brewer, 23, said Uka pointed the gun directly in his face and pulled the trigger twice as he shouted “God is Great” in Arabic - but the gun jammed and failed to fire.

"When I looked up, the pistol was in my face. I heard the words 'Allahu Akbar' and the pistol went 'click,'" Brewer told the court, according to AP news agency.

"I saw hate, loathing and hate in his eyes," said Brewer. He thought he was going to die, he added, saying that the attack had left him with severe psychological problems which took months of counselling to overcome.

Uka is accused of storming a bus carrying the unarmed US Airforce personnel, killing two soldiers, injuring two more and continuing to try to shoot further soldiers before his gun jammed and he fled towards the airport terminal where he was arrested.

When Uka then fled the bus and ran off, the airman gave chase, until Uka reached the terminal building and was arrested by police.

Brewer said, “I couldn’t carry a weapon any more and that is one of my main tasks,” the airman told the court. But he told of surviving comrades who had fared worse.

One of the injured personnel, shot in the head and buttocks, could no longer serve in the military and that “was his goal in life,” Brewer testified.

Another airman who was hit in the jaw, elbow and abdomen can stay in the military but “he is recovering very, very slowly,” he said.

“We expect, of course, that we may lose our lives in war,” said Brewer. “We expect such a thing but not here in Europe or in the USA.”

The US Air Force personnel on the bus were all out of uniform and unarmed and headed for the Ramstein airbase with their weapons locked in boxes during the shooting.

The dead servicemen were identified as Senior Airman Nicholas Alden, 25, of Williamston, South Carolina, and Airman First Class Zachary Cuddeback, 21, of Stanardsville, Virginia.

Story continues below…

Uka has confessed to the shooting, saying he had been influenced by Islamist propaganda.

Prosecutors, who believe Uka acted alone, say they said they found more than 1,500 files of religious content on his laptop and MP3 player, many of which were jihadist.

Some were texts by Pierre Vogel, who is a German Islamic preacher accused of fomenting hatred.

what about Libya? didn't US and NATO liberated Libya from dictator Qadaffi? Should everyone call it even now? If not, your hate will start to eat you up slowly.
12:50 October 25, 2011 by Jibzy
Lol. My comments breached terms of The Local? Is it wrong to ask for Justice? Arent all lives equal?

Freechoice: Yes indeed. So thoughtful of you to care for me. Would NATO also be bombing me? That is the trend i see. You give weapons to Saddam and then invade Iraq. You support Taliban and invade Afghanistan. Nato makes weapon deals with Qadaffi and then "liberates" Libya.

The Local has only biased articles now. Glorify your own victims, dont care about the brown people..who gives a damn about them anyway.
12:56 October 25, 2011 by Landmine
Perhaps if the "brown people" would stop being how they think and are about the rest of the world, the brown people might find a place in the world where they won't being persecuted...
12:58 October 25, 2011 by Jibzy
Right. We need to stop being how we think we want to be and think and do what the western world tells us to. That is the only way to not be persecuted by you guys. Great.

Sorry..i meant.. bringing "democracy".

How far in history do you wish to go to cite things that one needs to get even for.

How about far enough to recount the invasion by Muslim's of eastern Europe. They did get all the way to modern Austria. And by your own words. Europe needed to get even for that. We could do the tit for tat, eye for an eye thing all day if you wish. But it solves nothing.

I will admit though. That mine and other government's have made a lot of bad decisions regarding the middle east. But. The muslim's and their religious states have also made bad choises. I don't imagine that you would ever admit that though.
13:34 October 25, 2011 by Landmine
Most everyone has contributed, but your "brown people" as you call them, stopped contributing centuries ago. Now they just raise hell, cry racism and contribute not a damned thing except for Mosques everywhere to spread the word.

I would like to see how easily a Catholic church could pop up in the most conservative parts of the Middle east w/o the brown people starting a Jihad...
13:50 October 25, 2011 by Jibzy
Zeddriver: Well if you cant imagine me admitting that all the Muslim governments of the world are corrupt and are more reckless in terms of human rights than governments of western world, then you are biggoted, my friend.

If i would, i would choose not to live under them. But the worse that they do is kill their own people, or max an neighbouring country due to conflict (im thinking Israel here). They dont sell weapons of mass destruction to England and then invade England to look for them. Nor do they support dictatorships in the US. Can you make that claim? Who intervenes? Do you know about the history of Kabul University? Do you know what actually brought Kabul to this point? Do you know of Baghdad University?
14:41 October 25, 2011 by oldWine
what about privacy laws? Why the shooters name is published.
15:06 October 25, 2011 by zeddriver

Did you not see that I did in fact say that I agree that mine and other government's have made bad decisions in the middle east. I support America getting out of the middle east. And give california to the jewish. Of course muslim's would hate that. As it would take away their excuse for jihad. You and I know that if the above happened. The jihad would not stop. But I'm sure you will come up with some other excuse for jihadist terror attacks. Can't wait to hear them.

It is curious though. That you skirted the issue that I raised. Concerning Islamic invasions of the Arab peninsula (starting in 633 some 400 years before the

christian crusades) and continuing over time to include eastern Europe.

16:07 October 25, 2011 by Jibzy
Zeddriver: In the last post i mentioned you might be a bigot but i think you actually are. I agree that a significant number of people taking part in terrorist activities around the world are Muslim but saying that Muslims will lose their excuse for Jihad takes away any doubt that your kind are contributing to the problem. News channels like TheLocal and people guiding them like you were the ones you rushed to say that the Norwegian attacks were Muslim terrorists. Its like all muslims are terrorists until proven otherwise (opposite to what a civilized society believes).

Im not familiar with what exactly those monsters think but i would suppose bombing their family away would be step one if you want them to stop being crazy. And for a second, try not interfering in their governments. That should do the trick.

I skirted over it when i said, lets just talk about the recent past. I can come up with crusades too but i agree..how back in history can we go.
16:16 October 25, 2011 by raandy
When people kill or mame in the name of God, I think they are serious malcontents.

Their actions only further their cause of hate,as they are not interested in peace or justice.

What kind of religion or religious leader's preach violence and hate and condone physical disfiguration, beatings and death????
16:28 October 25, 2011 by ChrisRea
@ Landmine #9

When you say that "brown people" stop contributing to the world centuries ago, you are not referring to Muslims, are you? It would be a proof of ignorance and hate not to consider the Nobel Prize winners and scientists produced by the Islamic world.
16:44 October 25, 2011 by J-Dub
I have no sympathy for this puke. This guy killed innocent troops in the name of his 'God'. Religion is not an excuse to kill, nor is politics. I am a firm believer that if you take a life for such a reason, the only penalty you deserve is the death penalty since you debated your actions beforehand, planned them, and executed them. Such behavior deserves nothing less of punishment. Whether they had been soldiers or civilians, this makes no difference. He killed defenseless people like a COWARD, execution style, at close range and then ran like a pussie. Ship to Texas, kill this worthless bazturd and lets be done with it. The more this puke gets publicity, the more islamists cheer it on. Why? Because he killed in Allah's name and still lives to tell about it. Nothing pleases Islamists more to see their own on TV and facing nothing more than imprisonment as punishment. They have no remorse and death is the only punishment to these acts. Disagree if you want, but the only way to handle a terrorist is to give them the quickest path to Allah without injuring others....which is the death penalty.
16:45 October 25, 2011 by The Local Germany
@Jibzy You condoned the murder of innocent people, which is why your post was deleted. Your posts accusing us of bias can stay, but just FYI, The Local never reported the Norway attacks were the work of Islamists like some media outlets. Now everyone play nice or this thread will get shut down.

"What kind of religion or religious leader's preach violence and hate and condone physical disfiguration, beatings and death????"

Are you referring to the mutilation of castrati condoned by Vatican? Or to the Crusades? Or to the Inquisition? Then it is easy to identify the religion.

@admin: My post might have given that message, although i did not intend it. I just meant that, in my opinion, the US Army shouldn't be seen as an opressed group of people since they have done far worse to the other side. And im not talking "fair" war, i'm talking war crimes. Apologies if i wrongly worded my comment.
17:19 October 25, 2011 by raandy
ChrisRea,, I was referring to the present time. Not the witch hunts of the past.
17:59 October 25, 2011 by zeddriver

Thanks for clearing that up. That was exactly the impression I had of your first post.

Let me say this. I don't like my government messing around were it shouldn't. But if one looks at the history of the region. The US government saw all the instability between the tribes. This made it a dicey proposition for the drilling of oil. Of course the US government wrongly assumed that what was needed was a central authority to stabilize the region. And to make maters worse. The guy's that were put in charge were themselves tribal members. of course. All of this was a huge mistake. And most if not all government's are loath to admit any errors. And so ours proceeded to dig an even deeper hole to get out of.

In the end. I would like us out of the region. But I fear that those on the radical side of the issue will never stop terrorism. It has become ingrained in them to hate anyone that is not them. That same ingrained hatred applies to some in the west also. Unfortunately. The radical elements through their actions have done a great disservice to the middle eastern cause. The minute that an innocent person/people are killed. The average western citizen will stop listening to the middle eastern persons message. And that's sad.

@ ChrisRea #16

I would not consider the 8 Arab/Islamic winners out of a population of 1.4 billion (or 20% of the worlds population) as exactly a stellar record you allude to in your text

There are 166 Jewish winners who consist of only 12 million people or .02% of the worlds population, now that is a record....

Now, regarding this proof of ignorance, might that be yours?
19:53 October 25, 2011 by Whipmanager
wow, hey Jibzy, when they deleted your comment, at least you didnt get banned. SOme people get banned with no notice, and for seemingly less things said wrong than you did.

@admin: I wish you would send an email to the people you ban and let them know what they did and why, it would be fair.

Landmine Post#24- WOW, now that was a great work of art. Thank you for the post.

All Western Hating people: It is ok to hate us. We are just glad you dont have the technical knowledge or skills tokills us all. case in point: Iran is selling arms to kills, see articles about arms going to Syria, Jordan, and the Palenstinian authority. Libya did too, that Hand Grenade in teh Berlin Disco didn't just happen by accident, it took Lubyan money, east German INtelligence, and soem idiots to cause bombings on Libyan territory in 87. Teh terrorists get their money and arms from many places, and a great many of those places are Muslim Government, so we are all equal in the eyes of God when it comes to selling arms.

Now, if the Islamist world were not trying to do their own crusade, and install their religious beliefs in every country, they may find greater friends. We don't want to be converted or killed, so we hate the people that try to do this to us. Back off, go back to your countries, build up your societies, make famous educated people, for it really has been centuries since a Muslim has done major good fro all of man kind. BUild world trust, build tolerance for your thoughts and views, don't blow us up to get it- EARN IT.

GO back to the great persian societies that brought science to the world. Teh Great Egyptian society that also brough science. Conecntrate on building and not destroying, and win the hearts and minds of hte world.

Put schools and roads in Palestine, build supermarkets, build stuff, dont just take the money and build bombs and harrass the israelis.

Win me over with things I can see, with humane efforts, with getting rid of the bad apples that cause many of us to distrust you and at times fear you.

@ Landmine (#9)

You are absolutely right. Certain people just cry racism when the reality is anything but, because it is their "get out of jail free" card (or an excuse to do whatever they want without consequences or opposition). Issues concerning the building of Mosques at ground zero in New York City, for example, have begun to be about "racism" rather than the absolute lack of tact and taste of the people who are for pro-Mosque construction at the site. It isn't just these peoples' fault, though. It is OUR fault for tolerating this nonsense and not speaking up!

@ raandy #22

Religion does rarely change over time. The Bible used now is the same as the one used centuries ago. So it is irrelevant when religion condoned something or lead to certain actions.

@ Landmine

I see you admitted your initial ignorance, when you falsely stated that Muslims stopped contributing centuries ago. Bravo! I also see that you do not contradict any of my statements, so I guess you cannot but agree with me. Thanks!
13:51 October 26, 2011 by LecteurX
@ Landmine #24 - it's fascinating, this Nobel prize thing. How come you quote word by word a text from the "Jewish Internet Defence Force", and fail to mention this? Something you don't want us to know about? Well, first you should try to find more unbiased sources of info to use here. And then, do you really think that nations' "contributions" to the advancement of mankind are well represented by their number of Nobel prize laureates?

Well then, with 10 laureates (no 8, please get your figures right, ah I forgot, due to your "sources", the truth might be optional) for 1.4 billion people, the muslim world is on par with China & the Chinese diaspora (11 laureates for 1.3 billion people, including 2 nobel prizes for peace which actually are against China...) and India (a paltry 9 laureates for 1.2 billion people, including foreign-born Mother Teresa). Did your "impartial" source mention this? Hell, no. So, 4 billion people, 55% of mankind, received in total 30 nobel prizes, ie the number of prizes awarded to Swedish people alone, the other 800 prizes being trusted by a few Western countries where lots of Jews happen to live and, oh, have been heavily involved in science for centuries...

On the other hand, let's see who are these "166 Jews" who according to your "unbiased" source won the Nobel prize.

Otto Warburg (Med., 1931), the son of a man who broke off with his Jewish family and converted to christianity in protest, and went on to marry a protestant woman. So Jewish was he that he stayed in Germany and could continue to work during the 3rd Reich. Well...

Paul Heyse (Lit., 1910) - his father was a famous non-Jewish academic and his mother, the daughter of a Jew who had converted to christianity long before.

Adolph von Baeyer (Chem., 1905) no serious German source mentions he was a Jew, except for those translations from websites such as yours.

Henri Moissan (Chem., 1906): seriously, the only website that mentions him as a Jew is one that includes the former Archbishop of Paris in a list of "famous French Jews" (btw I'm French so I know what I read) - apart from translations of your "unbiased source" of course.

And it goes on, and on, and on. So it's a bit of a stretch to count so many people as "Jews", actually it's almost a "racial" way of defining it, just as You-Know-Who did. Of course there are PLENTY of real Jews who obtained a Nobel prize, but then next time keep your biased quotes out of here, they do more harm to your (otherwise rather valid points) than anything else. In addition, seriously, the Nobel Prize thing was for many years so very Euro-centric that even Gandhi was never a laureate, whereas, you know, Jewish Henry Kissinger, for all the love and peace he spread in the world in his lifetime, was awarded the Peace Prize...
19:22 October 26, 2011 by Landmine
@LecteurX #29

Who cares the source, most all others I saw had the same numbers listed. Reason I quoted word by word is called "cut and paste" -ever hear of that? Could have picked any other nationality, but chose to stick to one near the area.

Seems like you got a beef against Jews... There is help for that! Also for people who see conspiracy theories everywhere....
19:31 October 26, 2011 by Major B
This is one of the most disgusting discussions EVER in The Local. Now the discussion is about "brown people", the Nobel prize, the Muslim invasion of Europe centuries ago. What about that madman that killed innocent young people,cutting there great lives short?

Here we have young people, good people with great values, thousands of miles from home and for no reason someone starts shooting them. The U.S. military sends hundreds of thousands of its military personnel around the world, who mean well and serve well. Despite my great regret for the invasion of Iraq, the U.S. has poured billions into building up that country. Many people there have schools and medical care from the U.S. they never received from Sadaam. This doesn't justify the invasion but good was done in Iraq and for the first time they have an elected modern government.(while they kill each other at night -- decide for yourself about the society)

There is no excuse for gunning down people but the perpetrator received a trial in Germany. I'll note the same for other trials where killers of the Islamic faith took place in Germany -- the Iranian govmt, the Libyans, the Kurds. The same for the( I HATE to bring this up) the U.S. Officer on the Islamic religion who shot his fellow service personnel in Texas.

Those same standards ARE NOT followed in Islamic societies but I'll stop right ther

I can't wait for the day when U.S. military forces pull back from Europe even further. I mean an even more drastic reduction that happenned after the Cold War.

No military, overall, has done as much good for the societies where it has served as the American military. None. Period. And I am so proud of the way I honorably served my country in my seven combined years in Southern and Northern Europe. With honor and respect for the cultures that gave me so much and they appreciated the way I represented my country and what we stood for. Granted, this was in the pre-Iraq War II days, before we were so horribly blemished by that misadventure.

Well, the U.S. is pulling out of Iraq. Period. So blame there will no longer an excuse. And we will make the 2014 deadline in Afghanistan. So that won't be an excuse.

Next, a drawdown in Europe, since European militaries are reducing their forces even further.

Then in a generation, the U.S. can go back to its traditional isolationism. No more U.S. to blame for problems.

About the same time Czar Putin should have Russia back up to superpower status. And it will stretch it wings back to its former territories. And my country had better not lift a finger as Europe shivers.

Don't think you've caught on yet, but I dumb down all my replies to you just so your blabering primitive brain can get a hint about what I am talking about. Reading other stories on this media, seems like others do the same to you...

Cracks me up reading your posts. Seems like everyone you write about is never right, their opinion isn't worth a damn, or they are all ignorant.

@ Zeddriver

Thnx for the calming voice. Appreciate it. The blood began to boil at some of the comments . Don't normally go way off on a tangent and NEVER want to put myself in the discussions.

We just can't play down the significance of U.S. personnel who were "slaughtered" by this maniac in a modern country with super strong gun laws for its citizenry.

We don't even hear of Germans who are massacred like that. This is at the, what, Bader-Meinhoff gang level or the 1972 Olympic killings of Israelis by the Palestinians. America doesn't send its sons and daugthers off to an ally and Western country, where they should be safe, to have their lives and family's lives upended this way.

Because of the intense debates in the U.S. and with so much going on in the world, this didn't receive the coverage in the U.S. it should have.

Thus, I strongly stand by those first two statements I made in the previous post.

Yes, the points are uncomfortable and never could have imagined myself saying them just two years ago. When you look the disproportionate military burden sharing issues, and severe budget constraints, what is the alliance system in its present form really doing for the U.S. in 2011?

And to have these fools denigrate our military members like that. The questions are not going away and sooner or later it will get to the U.S. public awareness.
21:31 October 27, 2011 by zeddriver
@Major B

It's a very tough situation. Especially for an American. Because, even though I love my country. I hate the politicians. I really don't think that very many (if any) of our politicians have the same love of country that the average citizen does. Like most politicians they have a love of power. And if it takes much suffering to cover their butts. Well that's ok by them. A lot of Americans might even view me as unpatriotic. I say BS. Being a patriot means believing in the system the founding fathers set up in the constitution. Not being in lock step with the politicians that have corrupted that system.

Let me just clarify some things for you. I was asked by the judge when I looked in the shooters eyes what I saw so I said hate, disgust almost. As far as privacy for the names, I wasnt given privacy nor were those killed and injured, so why should the guilty party who is in protective custody and technically a war criminal be given privacy? You all were not there so your comments are so off target its kind of funny.
