Most significant of these events, unfortunately, was the tragic Fort Hood terrorist shooting on the giant Army base in Texas in November of 2009.

Online PR News – 31-August-2013 – US – McKinney, Texas -- In the spring of 2005,bestselling author Don Brown saw the release of his breakout novel, TREASON (Zondervan/Harper CollinsISBN 0310259339). Little did he know that in four short years, fictionalized events predicted by the novel would become sobering reality.

Most significant of these events, unfortunately, was the tragic Fort Hood terrorist shooting on the giant Army base in Texas in November of 2009. The Fort Hood shootings, some have said, werepredicted by a storyline in the novel TREASON which described a fictional account of similar terrorist shooting at a U.S. Marine Base in California.

In TREASON, Brown predicted a fictionalized mass-shooting by a radical Islamic member of the U.S. Marine Corps at Camp Pendleton, California. Four years later, in 2009, the fictional account became reality, whenthe mass-shooting by a radical Islamic member of the U.S. Army at Fort Hood, Texas killed 13 people and wounded 30 others.

Now, as the Fort Hood terror trial concludes, with Major NidalHasan receiving the death penalty, focus reverts back to the novel TREASON, which featured an earlier, fictionalized account of high-profile terror trial at a U.S. Navy base in California. Like Hasan, the Islamic terrorists in TREASON also received the death penalty from a military jury.

“The storyline in TREASON,” Brown said,“involved an Islamic conspiracy to plant radical sleeper-cells into the U.S. Navy Chaplain Corps. The chaplains sow Islamic seeds of terror, and eventually get prosecuted at a military court-martial for murder and treason, thus the title of the novel.

“Back in 2005, when I wrote TREASON,” Brown continued, “I wanted to warn about the danger of radical Islamic infiltration in the United States military. I saw it coming then, and in retrospect, I was right. Now, the prosecution of Major Maj. NidalHasan, and the Bengazi terror attacks show that I’m still right. Radical Islam is at war with the Gospel and with the Constitution, and must be opposed at all costs.”
