LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - "The letter states that Nadal Hasan wants to become a citizen of the Islamic State caliphate," attorney John Galligan said. "He wrote it in the last few weeks."

You can be a light in the dark world with "prayer and action."

Galligan described the request as a two page letter addressed to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader and caliph (Islamic religious ruler) of the Islamic State, a terrorist organization that has taken over vast swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria.

"I formally and humbly request to be made a citizen of the Islamic State," Hasan wrote. "It would be an honor for any believers to be an obedient citizen soldier to a people and its leader who don't compromise the religion of All-Mighty Allah to get along with the disbelievers."

Currently, Hasan is on death row at the military's U.S. Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.

Hasan was sentenced to death by a military court for his rampage in 2009 which caused the death of 13 people and the injury of 32 more. Authorities said that Hasan, an American-born Muslim, carried out the attack because he did not want to deploy to Afghanistan to fight other Muslims.

During his trial, Hasan offered no defense. At one point he told the judge there was "adequate provocation" for the attack because the soldiers he killed were going to participate in "an illegal war" in Afghanistan.
