Sudden Jihad Syndrome is a term coined by Daniel Pipes to describe Muslims that suddenly or unexpectedly turn against civilized, Western society and engage in acts of terror. [1]. Pipes has argued that due to this phenomenon all Muslims must be considered potential terrorists. [2]

Examples include:

  • Ali Hassan Abu Kamal a Palestinian school teacher who engaged in a shooting rampage on top of the Empire State Building. He killed one and wounded six before taking his own life.[3][4]
  • Hesham Mohamed Hadayet an Egyptian Muslim immigrant to America, shot and murdered two in July 2002 at the Israeli El Al airline ticket counter at the Los Angeles International Airport before being shot and killed himself by a security guard.[5]
  • John Allen Muhammad and Lee Malvo, the so-called Washington snipers. John Allen Muhammad was a Muslim convert, but some people allege that his motivations may not have been religious. [6][7]
  • Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar, an American Muslim born in Tehran who ran over students at the University of North Carolina to punish the United States. Taheri-azar was the first terrorist to be explicitly called an example of Sudden Jihad Syndrome by Daniel Pipes.[8]
  • Mujtaba Rabbani Jabbar who shot up a movie theater in Baltimore.[9]
  • Rashid Baz, a Lebanese can driver living in New York City who shot at a van full of Orthodox Jews.[10] In a burst of political correctness, the FBI initially refused to label this act a terrorist act.[10]
  • Sulejman Talovic, a Bosnian Muslim, opened fire in a Salt Lake City mall, killing five people before being shot dead by police.[11]
  • Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad murdered one at an Arkansas Army recruiting center in June 2009.[12]
  • Nidal Malik Hasan, perpetrator of the Fort Hood Massacre in November 2009.
  • Jonathan Melaku, an Ethiopian-born Muslim, began firing shots at "the Pentagon, Marine and Coast Guard recruiting offices, and the National Museum of the Marine Corps" in 2010 and later, and tried "to desecrate graves at Arlington National Cemetery containing the remains of U.S. veterans who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan".[12]
  • Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, Chechen Muslim immigrants, set off a bomb at the April 2013 Boston Marathon killing three spectators and injuring hundreds before being subdued.
  • Ismaaiyl Brinsley, a Muslim, in December 2014 shot and killed two police officers in their squad car in New York City before committing suicide.
  • Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi, Muslims, attempted to massacre the participants in a free speech event in Garland, Texas in May 2015, but were thwarted by a police officer who succeeded with deadly force against them.[13]
  • Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, a member of a Palestinian Muslim family, who in July 2015 suddenly murdered five servicemen in Chattanooga, Tennessee before being shot down by police himself.[12] This action moved Franklin Graham to publicly state "Muslim immigration needs to stop."[14]
  • Ayoub El Khazzani, a Moroccan, heavily armed, attempted to massacre the passengers, according to several eye-witness accounts including French actor Jean-Hughes Anglade, on a high-speed train travelling through Belgium from Amsterdam to Paris in August 2015. He was tackled and subdued by four[15] of the passengers, one of whom was an American serviceman, and wounded two, one with a box cutter and the other with a firearm and shot a projectile through the glass window just above one woman's head.[16]

In another example of bias in Wikipedia, Wikipedia has refused to allow any article on this topic[17] and even refused to let an editor work on a draft for a rewrite of the article.[18]
