The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has been working overtime to cover up what many have called a Jihad (holy war) attack upon America once again. There was the 1993 World Trade Center attack, followed by the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attack that killed over three thousand people.
The news media is having a hard time calling the murders, Jihad. They simply say Hasan was a disturbed man.
What is being largely ignored is that Hasan was a devout Muslim. He posted internet statements earlier in 2009 that said suicide bombers were saving their comrades. A former colleague, Col. Terry Lee, recalls Hasan arguing that “Muslims have the right to rise up against the U.S. military.”
Hasan passed out Korans the morning of the attack and “donated his furniture to anyone who would take it.” This certainly appears to be the actions of someone preparing for martyrdom.
Perhaps Hasan had emotional problems, but there appears to be an abundance of evidence that he was ideologically predisposed to do what he did. Survivors of the attack said Hasan shouted “Allahu Akbar” before opening fire. This event could have been avoided if our Federal Government had not foisted a “politically correct” agenda upon the American people, and especially the military. That agenda is that Americans cannot protect themselves against Jihadists living right in our midst. We dare not hurt anyone’s feelings by calling a spade a spade!!!
Nidal Malik Hasan was born in Virginia, but didn’t think of himself as an “American,” but a “Palestinian.” At the Muslim Community Center in Silver Springs, Maryland, he gave his nationality, not as “American,” rather as “Palestinian.” A mosque official found that curious, saying, “I don’t know why he listed Palestinian. He was not born in Palestine.”
He is a graduate of Virginia Tech and has a doctorate in psychiatry from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. While there, NPA reports, Hasan was “put on probation early in his postgraduate work” and was “disciplined for proselytizing about his Muslim faith with patients and colleagues.”
Hasan was a staff psychiatrist at Walter Reed Medical Center for six years before transferring to Fort Hood early in 2009. While at Walter Reed, he was a “very devout” member of and daily visitor to the Muslim Community Center in Silver Springs.
Hasan identified himself as Palestinian and was a devout Muslim – so what? These things have no significance if one assumes that Islam is a Religion of Peace. When a devout Muslim reads the Koran’s militant injunctions to wage war against unbelievers, he may just be influenced enough to wage Jihad (holy war) against what he considers the infidel – America!!!
Fox News contributor Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (retired), in two interviews, asserted that this was an act of Islamist terrorism, and listed just some of the telltale signs to back up his position. For instance:
- Nidal Hasan opposed the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and would argue with the patients, vets returning from combat, against the justification for the wars.
- Hasan said the “war on terror” was in fact a war against Islam.
- There is evidence that Hasan believed “infidels” deserve beheading.
- Internet postings in Hasan’s name, months earlier, compared suicide bombers as heroic soldiers who throw themselves on a grenade to save the lives of their comrades.
Lt. Col. Peters went on to blame the culture of political correctness for the failure of the Army to take any action against Hasan, in spite of an awareness that Hasan held these views. Hasan believed Muslims had the right to rise up against their “oppressors” – the United States.
A fellow student at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences complained about a presentation Hasan gave that “justified suicide bombings and spewed anti-American propaganda.”
Here’s the disturbing question that needs to be answered: Could this act of terrorism, leaving twelve dead and many wounded, have been prevented had there not been such a politically correct reluctance to act on what was known about Hasan?
Imagine if the Army had acted. It’s easy to envision the Council on American-Islamic Relations indignantly blasting the Army with statements alleging “discrimination.”
Read Deuteronomy 28 and Leviticus 26!!! See if they FIT America and Britain right NOW!!!
