Jihad at Fort Hood – by Robert Spencer

fort2

Major Nidal Malik Hasan, a U.S. Army psychiatrist, murdered twelve people and wounded twenty-one inside Fort Hood in Texas yesterday, while, according to eyewitnesses, “shouting something in Arabic while he was shooting.” Investigators are scratching their heads and expressing puzzlement about why he did it. According to NPR, “the motive behind the shootings was not immediately clear, officials said.” The Washington Post agreed: “The motive remains unclear, although some sources reported the suspect is opposed to U.S. involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq and upset about an imminent deployment.” The Huffington Post spun faster, asserting that “there is no concrete reporting as to whether Nidal Malik Hasan was in fact a Muslim or an Arab.”

Yet there was, and what’s more, Major Hasan’s motive was perfectly clear — but it was one that the forces of political correctness and the Islamic advocacy groups in the United States have been working for years to obscure. So it is that now that another major jihad terror attack has taken place on American soil, authorities and the mainstream media are at a loss to explain why it happened – and the abundant evidence that it was a jihad attack is ignored.

Nidal Malik Hasan was born in Virginia but didn’t think of himself as an American: on a form he filled out at the Muslim Community Center in Silver Spring, Maryland, he gave his nationality not as “American” but as “Palestinian.” A mosque official found that curious, saying: “I don’t know why he listed Palestinian. He was not born in Palestine.”

Center. He is a graduate of Virginia Tech and has a doctorate in psychiatry from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. While there, NPR reports, Hasan was “put on probation early in his postgraduate work” and was “disciplined for proselytizing about his Muslim faith with patients and colleagues.”

He was a staff psychiatrist at Walter Reed Army Medical Center for six years before transferring to Fort Hood earlier this year. While at Walter Reed, he was a “very devout” member of and daily visitor to the Muslim Community Center in Silver Spring. Faizul Khan, a former imam at the Center, expressed puzzlement over Hasan’s murders: “To know something like this happened, I don’t know what got into his mind. There was nothing extremist in his questions. He never showed any frustration….He never showed any remorse or wish for vengeance on anybody.”

So he identified himself as Palestinian and was a devout Muslim – so what? These things, of course, have no significance if one assumes that Islam is a Religion of Peace and that when a devout Muslim reads the Koran’s many injunctions to wage war against unbelievers, he knows that they have no force or applicability for today’s world. Unfortunately, all too many Muslims around the world demonstrate in both their words and their deeds that they take such injunctions quite seriously. And Nidal Hasan gave some indications that he may have been among them.

On May 20, 2009, a man giving his name as “NidalHasan” posted this defense of suicide bombing (all spelling and grammar as it is in the original):

There was a grenade thrown amongs a group of American soldiers. One of the soldiers, feeling that it was to late for everyone to flee jumped on the grave with the intention of saving his comrades. Indeed he saved them. He inentionally took his life (suicide) for a noble cause i.e. saving the lives of his soldier. To say that this soldier committed suicide is inappropriate. Its more appropriate to say he is a brave hero that sacrificed his life for a more noble cause. Scholars have paralled this to suicide bombers whose intention, by sacrificing their lives, is to help save Muslims by killing enemy soldiers. If one suicide bomber can kill 100 enemy soldiers because they were caught off guard that would be considered a strategic victory. Their intention is not to die because of some despair. The same can be said for the Kamikazees in Japan. They died (via crashing their planes into ships) to kill the enemies for the homeland. You can call them crazy i you want but their act was not one of suicide that is despised by Islam. So the scholars main point is that “IT SEEMS AS THOUGH YOUR INTENTION IS THE MAIN ISSUE” and Allah (SWT) knows best.

Of course, it may not be the same Nidal Hasan. But there is more. One of his former colleagues, Col. Terry Lee, recalled Hasan saying statements to the effect of “Muslims have the right to rise up against the U.S. military”; “Muslims have a right to stand up against the aggressors”; and even speaking favorably about people who “strap bombs on themselves and go into Times Square.”

Maybe he just snapped, perhaps under the pressure of his imminent deployment to Iraq. But it’s noteworthy that if he did, he snapped in exactly the same way that several other Muslims in the U.S. military have snapped in the past. In April 2005, a Muslim serving in the U.S. Army, Hasan Akbar, was convicted of murder for killing two American soldiers and wounding fourteen in a grenade attack in Kuwait. AP reported: “Prosecutors say Akbar told investigators he launched the attack because he was concerned U.S. troops would kill fellow Muslims in Iraq. They said he coolly carried out the attack to achieve ‘maximum carnage’ on his comrades in the 101st Airborne Division.”

And Hasan’s murderous rampage resembles one that five Muslim men in New Jersey tried to carry out at Fort Dix in New Jersey in 2007, when they plotted to enter the U.S. Army base and murder as many soldiers as they could.

That was a jihad plot. One of the plotters, Serdar Tatar, told an FBI informant late in 2006: “I’m gonna do it….It doesn’t matter to me, whether I get locked up, arrested, or get taken away, it doesn’t matter. Or I die, doesn’t matter, I’m doing it in the name of Allah.” Another plotter, Mohamad Shnewer, was caught on tape saying, “They are the ones, we are going to put bullets in their heads, Allah willing.”

Nidal Hasan’s statements about Muslims rising up against the U.S. military aren’t too far from that, albeit less graphic. The effect of ignoring or downplaying the role that Islamic beliefs and assumptions may have played in his murders only ensures that – once again – nothing will be done to prevent the eventual advent of the next Nidal Hasan.

    Did you hear what NPR had to say?Speaking from both sides of their mouths – they said that no-one knew why the perpetrator had done this – and then in the same sentence – went on to say that he was stressed from working with returning war vets (and therefore not responsible) – but then actually implied those vets may have PERPETRATED WAR CRIMES THEMSELVES while in Afghanistan & Iraq – and this is what must have sent this man over the edge.The blood hasn't even dried on the victims bodies – and NPR is BLAMING THE US MILITARY for these murders.NPR has gone too far. As far as I am concerned – NPR can go to hell.RobW

    It has already started in the main stream press. Incredibly, hordes of hard-hitting journalists are trying to gain some insight on why Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan shot 12 persons to death and wounded 30+ more. In spite of abundant evidence to the contrary they are all developing the case that he must have been mentally ill. They are beating the PTSD horse to death. Even as I write Wolfe Blitzer this very moment proffered with sincerity: “The key question has to be 'why he did it'.” We are fighting an uphill battle when the people with all the Eyes will not see.

    Fight terrorism with all your might!
    History reveals very clearly that the apathetic give way to the passionate and the complacent are subdued by the committed. This is the time for people to rise up and defend our freedoms. Defeating global terrorism is the single most important issue of our time. It is more important than global warming, than welfare reform, than stem cell research, even than reproductive rights. And that’s because none of those issues can be addressed if we’ve been subjugated to Islamic fundamentalist terrorism. Punish them where it hurts most as explained at : http://israelagainstterror.blogspot.com/2008/01

  • Robert Bernier

    Peaceful Moslems.
    We are told again and again by “experts” and “talking heads” that Islam is the religion of peace, and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. So, how can we explain that Moslem leaders are seen preaching, “Islam is a religion that wants to rule the world. It has done so before, and eventually will rule it again…. By Allah, the day will come when we will rule the entire world again! The day will come when we will rule America! The day will come when we will rule Britain! …You will take over the USA! You will defeat them all! You will get victory!” More about “peaceful Moslems” at:

  • johnmassam

    It's in the Koran — strike off the heads of the disbelievers. It also says that garments of fire will be cut for Islam's opponents. The politically correct are as blind as the apologists for Mussolini and Hitler were in the 1920s and 1930s.

  • Steve

    When I first turned on the TV and heard about the attack, my first reaction was "I'll bet you he's a Muslim", and sure enough I was right. As the news came in, in the succeeding hour or more, I wanted to shout at the mainstream media and their "experts": "Daaaaaaaaah! Wake up and connect the dots you knuckle heads." It seemed they did everything but mention the word "Muslim" or "Islam." Even the word "terrorism" was hardly mentioned. 7/11 and 11/5 are not the last because, it seems, the powers-that-be in American society (as well as others outside the USA) are clueless bordering on stupidity.

    give a really good explaination to their families ?
    There's MORE Q's….but…..

  • eddibebbi

    He did it because his mind-set was
    that of a dedicated Muslim.
    Simple as that.

  • albarrs

    I believe, like Bill Clinton, for personal political cover President Obama is exerting all the force of his office to cover up this tragic attack on U.S. soldiers by a Islam extremist, otherwise why did the FBI immediately come out an say that this deadly attack had nothing to do with terrorism. First, it certainly was terrorism, maybe not directly ordered by radical Islamic militants but certainly influenced by it. And, one of their tactics is to encourage individual attacks against U.S. citizens and soldiers, which is what appears to be occurring in some of the preemptive arrests. That said, this attack has the same MO (method of operation).

  • kafir4life

    When will we allow moslems to be moslems!???? It will be a travesty if he is prosecuted for practicing his religious beliefs. Where is the ACLU and the 9th circuit court to stand up for this man and his civil rights to practice his faith (which it seems he understood the ways of the prophet very well)? Or maybe he'll be reprimanded for performing religious rites on public property? Maybe they'll treat him as if he'd placed a cross on a public hill, but I wouldn't count on it.

    It's just islam, that's all.

    Truth.

  • smithwinston

    It's all very disturbing. How long before a Moslem commands an airwing, or trident submarine?

    The spin is predictable.

    RELIGION OR COUNTRY FIRST?

    Hasan's cousin said on Fox's Shepard Smith's program that Hasan was “always a Muslim” and Smith immediately said that it was being reported that he was a convert.

    THIS MAN IS CONSELING OUR RETURNING SOLDIERS? I BET HE MADE THEM FEEL WORSE BY ASKING HOW MANY WOMEN AND CHILDREN HE KILLED AS HE MADE HIM OR HER FEEL GUILTY FOR BEING THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE “ESPECIALLY FOR A WAR BASED ON A LIE!” THE POSSIBLITIES OF BRAINWASHING OUR SOLDIERS TO THE POINT OF MAKING THEM SUICIDAL, ANGRY, REVENGEFUL, AND REMORSEFUL ARE THE ISSUES THAT NEED TO BE INVESTIGATED!

    All patients who visited this obvious psycho need to be re-evalutated and de-programmed! I also hope they reveal what Hasan told them!

    RELIGION OR COUNTRY FIRST?

  • davarino

    I wrote a post on FPM recently where I stated my admiration of the military and how they do their duty no matter who is in office or what poor leadership is running a war. Now, not only do they have to tolerate the afore mensioned but they have to live with this PC crap of allowing anyone into their ranks regardless of their background, profile, or open misgivings of America. This is total BS and is another example of liberal mental disorder. I couldnt beleive it when I was listening to the news and they said the FBI was going to do background checks on the three shooters. Oh now they are going to do background checks, now, not before they enlisted, but after, after they do their damage, because we wouldnt want to hurt their feelings. If I was in the military I would be watching my back, and to tell the truth, I would refuse to work with any one I felt was a threat. You could throw me in the brig if you want but at least I wouldnt die for “their” cause. Tell you what, why dont you generals grow a pair and stand up for you soldiers, come what may. This is what is called patriotism.

    “America, a country where its soldiers will put their life on the line in order to protect your right to spit on them!” Steve Chavez

    Barbara Starr of CNN was blaming the numerous tours and never mentioned that Hasan was a Muslim.

    THE SPITTING ON OUR SOLDIERS HAS BEGUN!

  • leighwallace

    This incident is a crying shame. Why did our US Army allow this man into this position anyway. Some protection we have in our Army. Somehow and someway, this sounded like it was planned. It is obvious what this man's motive was. Wake up America and see what is coming. Your guard has been let down. If these types of people are allowed to be in our service, who can we protect even our own land. Can you just imagine how many of our soldiers felt when they had to go to visit this psychiatrist even in the service. They were not given quality of mental health care with someone like this. I can only wonder about the torment they went thru.

  • esbeesue

    While it was known that this guy was jihadist and allowed to roam free, even be part of the army that is supposed to protect us from guys like him, your govt is instead spending your tax dollars and efforts to arrest Amish in Wisc and force others to become part of a program that will severely restrict their constitutional/relig freedoms.
    their only crime is because they own livestock. The program is called NAIS.

    NAIS (The National Animal Identification System), is a so-called disease tracking food safety program the USDA is forcing on those who own even one chicken or any other farm animal. Many are being signed up without their knowledge or permission. Non-food animals such as horses, llamas, parakeets, etc are included in this program. Over 90% oppose this program yet the USDA continues to force this unwanted program on those who need it least.
    Under NAIS you register your premises with the govt, (thereby losing property rights) , microchip all critters at big cost, report all their movements, births, deaths to a database within 24 hrs or face huge fines, then risk losing them to depopulation if disease is suspected in a 6 mile radius! Currently, only sex offenders/child molesters are tagged tracked and register their premises. Animal owners will be tracked closer than illegals, drug delaers, sex offenders or this guy that blew away 13 people and wounded others.
    Protection from disease is why we are told NAIS is needed, but the real reason is for the benefit of big agriculture/factory farms so they can sell meat globally. But they do not have to tag/ track individual critters. They get ONE lot number for each animal group. And the tracking of any animals stops at slaughter, after which many food safety issues occur.
    The listening sessions held during the summer by the USDA about NAIS show the people are overwhelmingly against NAIS. But the USDA said these sessions showed “substantial support” for NAIS… Huh?!?!?!? They apparently were listening with fingers in their ears!) See nonais dot org for more info on the program that will affect everyone who eats.

    How did a virulent PALESTINIAN MUSLIM become a Major (even in the medical corps) in the U.S. Army?

    Has our stupidity and (in) tolerance brought us this far…

    I say NO MORE. Time to deport. And if you're a Black Muslim, you get a one-way ticket to Darfur to enjoy life – as a slave – under YOUR Arab Muslim brothers.

  • antifascist18

    Of course “general” Jimmy Jones, EX-USMC, RINO, and bosom buddy of Hamas (if not of General McChrystal) would bring more and more of this kind of scum into our military.

    We're spending millions to train Hamas – courtesy of Jonesy and his buddy Bonzo – to kill Israelis, and they're here killing OUR OWN TROOPS.

    When are we going to learn? It had better be a CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN CONGRESS AND A MEAT-EATING CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT who isn't PC or afraid to truly deal with Islam next. Or we're down the toilet, and Jonesy won't save us.

  • hanoch

    To entitle this article “Jihad at Fort Hood” is irresponsible and may ultimately harm the just cause of rooting out Islamic terrorists in this country. We simply do not have the facts as to why this man committed this atrocious act. One cannot maintain credibility by jumping to conclusions.

  • jackkaltenhauser

    I am deeply appauled that we are discussing the mental state of this cold blood killer who attacked our soldiers not on the battlefield but in a crowded processing center. This worthless hunk of camel dung, had given away is furniture and koran, carried weapons onto a military installation or withheld them from an arms room (both violations of Army policy) and then entered a crowded processing center at a time he knew it would be crowded so he could inflicted his most deadly action on this brave Americans.

    I would like to see a requirement for all MUSLIMS in the US military and government jobs or offices to swear alliengence to the Constitution of the United States and swear off their alliengence to the KORAN and ISLAM (the religion of peace). If they refuse to do so then they should be immediately discharged and sent packing.

    The American military never would have allowed a NAZI into the military during WWII, what is the difference here.

  • CowboyUp

    Bravo sierra, the pooh-poohing of these incidents causes 10 times the harm already. The hussein administration doesn't even USE the word terrorist unless it's in conjunction with "right-wing." A soldier in the group he shot up called her father right after and said he stood up behind the counter, yelled allah akbar and opened fire.You play a fool if you wish, I'm not.

  • Fong

    Yes, the vile snake in the grass at Ft. Hood was simply following the creed of his chosen cult. That treasonous rat could have simply resigned his commision if he was so opposed to serving in Iraq, but no he chose to commit a heinous act of treason against his fellow soldiers when they were defenseless.

    There are religions throughout the world and then there is what appears to be not a religion but rather a massive cult, the followers of which believe that it is a just cause to decieve, repress and murder the unbelievers. Where ever this cult spreads and gains power over a nation, freedom of religion goes right down the toilet. History has proven that when followers this cult seize control of a nation tyranny comes right along with it.

  • Melinda

    I'm with Hanoch on this one. The condemnation is premature. Analysis of the facts, however is not. I for one do not believe that the US goes far enough to shut down religious fanaticism and intolerance. Freedom of religion is just that, but when extremists believe that DOMINATION of religion at all cost is the end goal, that freedom should be lost. Because “we” refuse to do that, we cannot distinguish peace-loving muslims from jihadists, which is why Islamization of America is such an imminent danger to our stability. So the question becomes, are we persecuting a man because of his exercise of his freedom of religion….a fundamental right that we all enjoy. In this case, it seems from what little I have read thus far that freedom of religion should have been trumped by earlier investigation, but was not. Perhaps we could avoid placing ourselves in the position of wondering what the driving force was behind this man's actions if we sacrificed a little political correctness in the first place and asked the difficult questions preemptively rather than retrospectively.

  • Deejean

    I heard our local news when speaking of the Jihad in Fort Hood say it Is not known why the jihadest
    Went on a killing rampage, well that’s not what our news actually said they didn’t even mention the mans
    Name, Because the news media in America has begun to be submitted ,to the dhimmitude of non muslims
    In America because islam has people so afraid of offending it, That many will even persecute there own
    People in order to avoid offending islam. The code of deadly silence surrounding and aiding islams global
    Jihad, Is eerie like the deadly calm before destructive forces of the tornado hits,
    The silence is, Silence regarding the countless victims of islam.
    And yet the fact is there are literally millions of victims of islam! They are people of every race every nationality every religion or lack of every walk of life every ability or in ability they are people of all
    Ages and back grounds. There men women children babies,

    And they are the largest group of victims in the world. Yet have the least representation, Why ? Because islam is big money oil and lots of power and has so much of the world so busy catering to it bowing to it that they simply will not be bothered with showing mercy compassion EQUALITY for ISlAMS VICTIMS
    We have no pacific religion no pacific race or sex , We are all people yet no pacific people so its like we do not matter at all to the islam supporting world. Only defending islam at all costs avoiding offending islam at all costs matters to the islam supporting world, We are learning though, That islam got its way thru terror and intimidation the world began to bow down to it even in the west the world began to bow down to
    It because of its bloody sadistic Jihad,, Is that what it would take for the islam supporting world to give a
    Bit of concern compassion mercy equality the right to be heard for islams many victims?
    Do the millions of victims of islam who are still alive and the millions of families of islams victims, Do we
    Have to get as sadistic as the terrorists to get the world to give a damn about us? And no I am not suggesting we do, merely saying that seems to be what gets the worlds concern violence raising hell ,begs and please for help and mercy compassion, Just don’t seem to be getting us anywhere, But as Islamic leaders like Osama say, Muslims love death as humanitarians love life!!

    As a matter of fact I have studied the Global Jihad movement for so long now, I know it well, better then probably anyone I know including many muslims.
    I discovered a while back there is what I call a “Defend islam at all costs brigade” and they do just that defend islam no matter what or who it costs, Because they have been so filled with islams lies they have been brainwashed to view islam as the perpetual innocent victims and its victims as the perpetual aggressor,
    And if by chance they do actually see that muslims have done something wrong they quickly jump to blame it on Christians or athiests or non muslims, And declare it was not about islam had nothing to do with islam
    After all islam does no wrong according to them! Everyone else is always the bad guy never islam!
    I told people
    “There killing our soldiers” and I tried to warn people, Because from my extensive research, I found they do plot against not only our soldiers but anyone who dare defend the victims of islam and I know
    They are also behind many of our soldiers suicides, Because I discovered some of the militants in the defend islam at all costs brigade ,were even in the medical dept of our military and our VA centers, and they would go on the internet and persecute the helll out of anyone who defended the victims of islam, that attacked like a pack of hyenas or something, And are brutal ruthless hateful as hell even urge those with depression to kill themselves and give instructions on how! Planting the method in the already troubled already depressed persons head, then they continue on with the relentless persecution! And I thought if that’s what these people are like on the internet good God what are they like with the military patients and I discovered there are muslims in our military and our VA centers with extreme militant Islamic view points
    , Based on my very well researched knowledge of the Global Jihad movement and what I discovered I knew it was only a matter of time before they just openly started killing our soldiers!

    From what I understand, and I may be wrong, I don't think this guy had a “tour” yet, but had orders, (as we used to say “for the big puddle”). So, how could he be suffering from anything.

    Indeed, the soldiers put their lives on the line for a people who are not worthy of their sacrifice. The “people” are not fit to shine these soldiers' boot (don't think they “shine” boots anymore), much less clean their rifles.

    Hello.

    You have doubtless heard or read about the murders at Fort Hood.
    This morning I read two accounts in the Wall Street Journal. The print version is short and blandly uninformative. The version Online is much longer, with several important details about the murder's life, times, problems, etc. But still bland, refusing to address the subject of Muslims killing people, mostly non-Muslims, except in the case of Honor Killings and other complicated situations.
    I include below the entire story as it appeared online.

    Military suicides and murders are up, dramatically, as soldiers are called back for multiple, multiple tours of duty. Too, there is now since B Hussein Obama started his endless campaign for the presidency–the drumbeat of opposition. But now that he has to act–he (Obama)merely acts out. The effect on troop morale has to be enormous. More and more they look over their shoulders to see if ANYBODY in the US really supports what they are doing. Obama is intenrally conflicted by -Only God knows the total number– opposing motives for what he does and does not do. I will not rehearse here the growing litany of his outrageous statements, but ones such as proclaiming his discomfort at the idea of the Japanese surrender at the end of WWII is utterly insane. He has mentioned that victory is not his motive–only finding a solution. His well-rehearsed hand salute for the recent Dover Photo-Op shows evidence of long practice before a mirror, old stuff for BHO–no doubt.

    A survey of his cabinet choices and the exponentially expanding list of Czars who rule without accountability or qualificatiions reveals culpability in the selections, and treasonous actions and words by the individuals involved. Fortunately, the recent elections are moving the right way–but we must keep unremitting presuure on the process or the hoped-for amelioration through the 2010 election process will not happen. Obama vows to reach out to “young people,” meaning the ACORN, SEIU, and all associate groups will be liberally endowed by SOROS $$$$$$. The dead shall rise from their graves, and illegals shall have bestowed upon them whatever it takes to get into an election polling place–count on it.

    Back to Fort Hood. Islam advocates a way of life based on belligerence, xenpohobia, suspicion, and absolute control of its followers. It is no wonder that Muslims explode: Islam demands hostility toward non-Muslims. It's in the book (Koran, Yusufali translation–and all other translations, too, but the Saudis are especially fond of Yusufali and do hand it out at their numerous mosques here in the US.) All of this leads to a quite inevitable conclusion–having Muslims in the US Armed Forces, or even in the government, is asking for extra problems. In the vernacular “Not too swift.”
    Shortly after 11 Sep 2001 the FBI reported that a MUSLIM agent who refused to participate on phone taps on Muslims' line was simply re-assigned. How astute is that!!!

    Please read the article below. Notice the great lack of conclusion or surmise re: Islam. The print edition is even more sanitized.
    I am trying to get a conversdation with an editor of WSJ to chat about policy.

    Again it's like our Poodle Freddy–who refused to LOOK at bears when we drove throughYellowstone about 35 years ago.
    He was thinking : OBOY–if I ever do see a bear I will really mean and defiant too Him/Her.But fortunately there aren't any bears around here. No Problem.

    but then the muslim mafia would whine, and (as usual) we will comply.

  • USMCSniper

    Robert Spencer, this paragraph you wrote is a great steaming pile of camel shit except for (U.S. troops would kill fellow Muslims) !
    You Wrote:

    “Maybe he just snapped, perhaps under the pressure of his imminent deployment to Iraq. But it’s noteworthy that if he did, he snapped in exactly the same way that several other Muslims in the U.S. military have snapped in the past. In April 2005, a Muslim serving in the U.S. Army, Hasan Akbar, was convicted of murder for killing two American soldiers and wounding fourteen in a grenade attack in Kuwait. AP reported: “Prosecutors say Akbar told investigators he launched the attack because he was concerned U.S. troops would kill fellow Muslims in Iraq.”

    There are no peaceful Moslems, just the active and the passive Jihadists. The active ones do the killing and terrorist acts and the passive ones support the active ones either directly or by condoning the attitude that it it is okay to kill infidels becuase they are Moslems first last and always.

    Kill 'em all, put 'em all in piles and burn 'em and let Allah sort 'em out.

    I recall when those Negroes were running around Maryland and Washington shooting people. There was something in one of the messages they left, that I thought was strange. It was not what they said, but the way they said it. I thought, who talks/writes like that? After a while I realized that the person who wrote the message was likely from the West Indies. They were still at large, at this time. An expert, who was a retired NYPD police officer (don't know how that qualifies him as an expert) insisted, and continued to insist that is was most likely an “angry white man”.

    It is a cult of OPPRESSION, of LUST to POWER.

    It is why they see at as the unbearable insult that free democratoc Israel should exist where everybody are offered an EQUALITY BEFORE LAW.

    He had never even served in Iraq or Afghanistan! Unfortuntely, the Army was being politically correct and not throwing him out like they should have done long before this act of terrorism happened.

    It doesn't matter if terrorism is conducted by one or 20 or killing 10 or 10,000, it is terrorism!!!

  • northernobserver

    What people don't understand is what Islam instructs its followers in order to be considered orthodox or devout. What does Islam teach? What does it expect of its adherents? What are the values Islam imparts on its beliviers? What is good and what is bad in Islam?

    Once you do the research, read the Koran and the hadiths, the terrible truth hits you; the more devout a muslim is, the more of a danger to society he becomes, unless that society is a sharia based emirate. A devout muslim is a theocratic warrior designed to convert or kill all that are not of his faith. Think the borg or the replicators; the individual in islam lives to serve the community and the tenants of Islam, he/she has no importance outside of the community, he/she has no worth except the service he/she provides to Islam as a whole. This is why westerners have such a hard time getting their minds around Islam and muslim actions; it is absolutely anti-thetical to our civilizaition, our norms, our habits, even or feelings and reasoning. Which is not surprising if you look at history since Islam was designed to be an anti-jewish, anti-Christian, anti-hellenistic belief system. Why would it be in any way compatible with our culture society or government? We (westerners) want to fit Islam into the same box we put fringe religion of our own culture. We try and put Islam in an amish box, or a hassadim box, or a separatist mormon box. But islam does not fit any of the religious examples that come from Judeo Chrisitan culture; which again is only natural because Islam is inherently anti Judeo Chirstian.
    The only way I have ever been able to get people to begin to understand what Islam is, was be using the analogy of Vikings with a book. Vikings with a holy book and monotheism. So people think oh it is just like Christianity and Judaism in that it is monotheistic and has a holy book too… but they forget that Viking aspect, Islam takes all the pagan warriror values of the Viking era and codifies it into their holy book and morality; while Christianity and Judaism are religions that try to move people beyond paganism and warrior values.

    What is the solution, I am not sure, but certainly the first step is to tell the truth about Islam and really to create a world where the truth can be told about Islam without facing Danish Cartoon riots, Komaini fatawas, and other death threats. If we can agree on never fearing to tell the truth the rest will follow. Islam is incredibly fragile in that sense; it can not withstand the process that Judaism and Christianity endured in the Enlightenment and modernity; Islam can not withstand rational analysis and criticism. It will dissolve. But not before whipping itself into a violent hysteria to silence all the truthsayers; which is what we see today, a mass islamic movement to silence people who would tell the truth about Islam.

    Silence = Death. Tell the truth about Islam.

  • abrahamstubenhaus

    Please, we must remember that this hater-killer yelled the usual “ala akbar” when he murdered those people at Fort Hood!
    Let no one try to just chalk it up to, “He was insane.” Sorry, there are far too many people who suffer from mental anguish and mental disease who will NEVER murder anyone, let alone murder 13 people and yell “ala akbar.” Note that I purposely did not spell the name of their false god and I gave it no capital letter. I better be careful, tomorrow there might be riots around the world to show off how much love their rapist murderer pedophile “profit” (as in, “profit from the pain you inflict on others), because they won't like the non capitalization.

    Will America see another display of timidity by our learders to call an act of terror just that? Will the fact that this man is a Muslim, that he denounced our involvement in the Mid East, and makes incendiary statements to others about our actions there, be glossed over by the media? This most certainly was a terrorist attack and our military ought to run intensive background checks on all members of the military who are Muslims, either by birth or conversion.
    I fear this will happen again unless we are vigilent and take very harsh messures against anyone who remotely espouses any kind of contradictory opinions of our role in the wars against terrorism.

    During WWII it would be difficult to imagine the U.S. Army promoting to the rank of Major an avowed NAZI Party member. I guess Hitler and Gobbles were not smart enough to call critics of NAZI ideology Nazophobes and anti-German racists. The M.S.M. is agonizing about why this “Misunderstand of Islam” came down with Sudden Jihad Syndrome like it was the H1N1 flu. As Robert Spencer says:
    “Major Hasan’s motive was perfectly clear — but it was one that the forces of political correctness and the Islamic advocacy groups in the United States have been working for years to obscure. So it is that now that another major jihad terror attack has taken place on American soil, authorities and the mainstream media are at a loss to explain why it happened – and the abundant evidence that it was a jihad attack is ignored.”

    While I disagree with some of what you assert…For example: “Islam can not withstand rational analysis and criticism” No western religion, Islam included, can.

    And I don't see how you can effectively argue that it is Anti-Christian by nature; after all, who else but Jesus defeats the Mahdi on the Islamic day of judgment? Jesus is a central hero to most sects of Islam (certain Shia excluded).

    What about the thousands being killed in Darfur as we speak? No one is helping them but I do know there are U.S. groups who said: "Bush, stop the genocide in Darfur." BUT, these were the same groups, and probably you LUCYQ, that slammed BUSH FOR STOPPING GENOCIDE IN IRAQ! They're still finding mass graves with women holding their children but what is disturbing is that the women were shot in the head execution style but no bullets were found on the children MEANING THEY WERE BURIED ALIVE!!! DID YOU SHED ONE TEAR FOR THEM? What's the difference between genocide in Iraq and Darfur? Then there are the numerous videos THAT DON'T LIE that showed Saddam's sons abusing women including a woman who was raped by Uday right after a wedding ceremony. Saddam even killed his own family members. THEN HE GASSED HIS OWN PEOPLE!!! SEE THOSE VIDEOS? WHERE WERE THE LEFTISTS? WHO CRIED FOR THE VICTIMS OF SADDAM? THEN THERE IS THE TALIBAN who also shot women in the head and treated their WOMEN LIKE PRISONERS AND SLAVES! YOUR POSTED NAME IS A WOMAN'S NAME SO IF YOU ARE A WOMAN, DON'T YOU CARE?WHO IS TO STOP THESE MADMEN? Now we have Iran who might have tested a NUCLEAR WEAPON UNDER THE EYES OF THE IAEA LED BY AN ARAB WHO IS PROBABLY ANOTHER HASAN HIDING UNDER THE BANNER OF LEGITIMACY!If Iran acquires, buys, or is given a nuke and uses it to "wipe Israel off the map" as Ahmadinejad, who thinks its his destiny to destroy Israel, THEN THERE WILL BE A WORLD WAR FOUGHT WITH NUKES!!! You want that? If not, call up your local Peace and Justice Center and ask why there are no screams by their ANTI-WAR/NUKE PROTESTORS! They do scream "NO WAR ON IRAN" WHEN THEY SHOULD BE SCREAMING "NO NUKES IN IRAN!" Isn't it easier to stop a country from acquiring them in the first place then it is to demand they get rid of them once they have them? LUCYQ WROTE: "That's exactly what this is and because we're at war with Islam, we should expect to see more Fort Hoods."

    This terrorist attack just infuriates me! There were so many red flags around this maniac Hasan so why was nothing done? It is political correctness, oh we can't criticise these Muslims but it is OK to criticise christians or jews. We need to stop this and call a spade a spade. We need to stop immigration of Muslims to this country, just look at what has happened in Europe in recent years. There are thousands of non Muslims in the middle east who would make excellent Americans, Chaldeans, jews and other groups who are being persecuted and killed by Muslims. I am sick and tired of this and I am going to contact my senators and congressmen and tell them to get off their butts and do what is right. One problem is Obama is still popular and he is an apologist for Islam. I don't hate Muslims abut I strongly dislike Islam. Read the book Unveiling Islam by the Caner brothers, 2 former Muslims who converted to Christianity and became Ministers. It is an eye opening revelation about Islam and its founder. Islam is easily the most intolerant religion and teaches hate of Jews and other non Muslims. Europe is almost lost to Muslim fanatics and we could be next unless we wake up.

If we can agree on never fearing to tell the truth the rest will follow.”

    You wrote a thoughtful post and it's appreciated. For the forseeable future, the next 40 to 50 years, whomever tells the truth about Islam will face riots, fatwas and Muslims going berserk. Islam itself is a religion of arrogance, supremacism and gender-apartheid as practiced in the ME and in many parts of Asia and Africa.

    Ishmael sees nobility in telling young Muslim boys to run over fields with enemy mines in them so the adult soldiers won't get killed or injured. Westerners believe that is disgusting.

  • LucyQ

    Beyond the obvious Jihad that Spencer writes about, and I agree with him, there are two aspects of this case I hear very little talk about:

    1–Why are American soldiers killing thousands and thousands of Muslims who had nothing to do with 911? I was led to believe that bin Laden and al qaeda were responsible for 911.

    Warmongers Bush/Obama told us 'this is not a war against Islam' but they both lied. That's exactly what this is and because we're at war with Islam, we should expect to see more Fort Hoods.

    The right thing to do is get out of Afghanistan and forget about the Bush/Obama/McChrystal agenda to nation-build there, providing new highways, homes, parks, libraries, schools, computers, TV's, fresh water plants and food and health care for every Afghani. That will take another 100 years, a liberal estimation, without success but the real question is do we have enough troops-NO, do our European allies want to supply more troops-NO, can we afford it-NO. So why do we want to stay in Afghanistan while willfully allowing our own government to go bankrupt?

    Point 2–the fact that this jihadist is a shrink is not surprising.

    America, how many more deaths of your dedicated and loyal citizens will it take before your leaders start telling you the truth about what is really happening in your country?

    I live in Australia. Like Americans, we welcome anyone to our shores (multiculturism). We extend our tolerance, our democracy, our social security benefits, our health care and our free education to all newcomers. Muslims see this as wonderful. They come here, receive all the benefits and then use our democracy and tolerance against us by slowly establishing their ways over ours. Look at poor Brittain.They are being overrun by Muslims and over their Sharia Law is legal in many parts of Brittain. Did you know that in Brittain a Muslim can have up to 4 wives with children to all, with all being supported by social security. Are we in the West crazy or what?

    Why is it that the only people who have difficulty intergrating with the local community is Muslims? Why is it that so much of our politicians have to learn about the “doo's and don'ts” when it comes to Muslims? (ask your FBI leader “Meuller” – he has been deceived by Muslim leaders by having all FBI agents taught a sanitised version of the Quran in the interest of mainstream Islam. He has to go.

    Obama just criticises Americans and offers an open hand to Muslims. His administration is full of Muslims and Muslim sympathisers. I'm sorry America but it's time for your community to wake up. I've given up on Australian politicans as they just follow your leaders.

    Want to know what is most likely to happen? Your leaders will not tell the truth which I believe was that at Fort Hood Nidal Hasan acted in the name of his religion shouting “God is Great” as he shot innocent soldiers, innocent people. He became a suicide shooter believing that his act would give him glory and 72 virgins in Muslim heaven. Sure he most probably acted alone but I wonder how many Muslims in America, indeed around the world are celebrating at the moment.

    Wake up America. Don't accept your leaders lies they are constantly being deceived by Islamic organisations like CAIR, GSISS and the ISNA. Your people deserve leaders who are not afraid to tell the truth. Yesterday America suffered the worst terrorist attack since 9/11 by a Muslim fanatic. End of Story.

  • maureenbevilacqua

    Hey! I am an Aussie too and I agree 100% with what Ken Bain has said above.

    I want to comment about the terrible massacre at Fort Hood as follows.

    When are America's citizens going to get so angry and say' is enough' to Islam extremists.

    Other migrant groups have successfully assimilated and integrated to embrace American culture and patriotism. Under the tenets of Islam, Muslims must place their Religion above all else including Country, family and community. Fort Hood is another example of a 'moderate' using his obligation of Jihad and becoming a suicide martyr at the expense of 13 dead, innocent victims and countless more wounded.

    Mad or stressed Psychiatrist- what a joke. He knew what he was doing, he was lucid and had made the organised, well planned steps to murder as many non- believers as he could. The only mistake from his religious point of view is that he didn't die.

    If his beliefs and values were so contradictory to America's policies than he wouldn't have been employed in the services. He was just a good, obedient Muslim waiting for the right opportunity to act for his “God” in a manner which is sanctioned by Islam.

    Now is the time to get angry and say we aren't going to allow it to happen again. And if weeding out the bad guys will step on many peoples toes – so be it.

    You could do better, Steve. The main difference between Iraq and Darfur is that Darfur was not about to launch a mushroom cloud with nuke stuff from Africa against America.

    Other than that reason and geographical, Islam is Islam whether in Darfur, Iraq, Afghanistan or Fort Hood. Why? Do you want us to invade all 78 Islamic nations in the ME and Africa and Asia, and completely bankrupt America?

    Does that mean you fancy 'nation-building' for Ishmael? That's the Bush/Obama/Cheney/Biden plan……none are female that we know of.

    Do you think we should kick out all the 5,000 to 20,000 Muslim American soldiers (the count keeps changing) fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan? Right after 911, we had 12 Arabic-speaking soldiers who could translate. Since we're nation building for Ishmael, who will translate for our military?

  • LucyQ

    The question is if a foreign Islamic nation invaded us, first to find and kill Jesse James, but once they couldn't find him, their soldiers bombed, murdered and crippled many Americans, destroyed many parts of America, and then decided they should nation-build for US, thus staying here even longer, and then demanding that we throw out our democracy and constitution to be replaced with Islamic laws, would an American who killed invaders be a hero or a terrorist?

    Since we've been lied to and are at war with Islam, then we should either invade all 78 Islamic nations simultaneously and forget about nation-building or get out of the two we've already invaded for the longest war in our history and forget about nation-building.

    Why are we nation-building for an enemy who doesn't want to convert and be just like us?

    When one considers how the media and others fail to understand the simple motives of a jihadist, one has to wonder, how many people are there that NEVER UNDERSTOOD why 911 occurred? Is it possible that a large number of Americans to this day don't understand what motivated that attack? And if such ignorance is widespread, how do we explain it?

  • salubrius

    The Times of London initially printed a story quoting an eyewitness that stated Hasan was yelling “Allahu Akbar” when he was murdering his fellow soldiers. I sent a letter to them complimenting it for publishing that story. “This is SJS or Sudden Jihad Syndrome. “Daniel Pipes] wrote those words days after 9/11 and has been criticized for them ever since. The Times (London) offers some clues:” Muslim army doctor shouted 'Allahu akbar' as he shot dead 13″ My compliments to the Times. The American Mainstream Media is too politically correct. There have several such incidents in the US and one in Kuwait typically attributed to “Insanity”. They didn't print it. They mysteriously withdrew the story.

  • bushlikesdick12

    Hasan was breifed by George W and Cheney hours before the shooting as Bush's Ranch. Apparantly from my sources, Hasan was extensivily interrogated by the Bush Administration and struck a deal with Cheny's people Haliburton to carry out Cheney's secret arms for oil deal with Osama Bin Laden.

    When Cheney refused to give all the arms promised to Bin Laden, Laden then threatened to blow up the trade center which he planned well in advanced.

    Cheney and Bush about this 9/11 even before they were elected.

    The idiot was expose to kill himself just as Harvey Lee Oswald was expose to kill himself so that Nixon wouldn't have to compete against Kennedy.

    Terrorist murder in the name of Islam.
    If you are Moslem, you have to behave according to the rules of Islam which are set down in the Koran and which are very different than the teachings of the Bible. Islam was born with the idea that it should rule the world. Islam has to fight the Jews and the Christians and this fighting is called Jihad. Jihad means war against those people who don’t want to accept the Islamic superior rule. That’s jihad as explained at : http://israelagainstterror.blogspot.com/2008/07

  • idviking

    It is a tragedy that the real criminals in this and other cases like are not held responsible for their failures. While the murderous acts of Nidal Hasan and other Muslims who choose jihad against non-believers are reprehensible they are simply following the edicts of the Koran. Why does the media continue to coddle Islam when time and time again they display nothing but intolerance for different faiths?

    The mass media outlets that fail to report the shortcomings of Islam that continue to lead to the death and injury of non-believers are without question complicit in those injuries.

    By refusing to tell the whole story about honor killings so as not to offend the society that condones this practice young girls in the USA are murdered or live in fear of being killed by their parents. Instead the media ignores these cases because they are an embarrassing component of Islam that needs to be corrected.

    A US Army recruiter is killed by a Muslim in Arkansas . Denounce this aspect of Islam to the world that it is a form of genocide and racist to kill someone because they are not Muslim. Instead the mass media minimized the coverage of this event to avoid embarrassing Muslims worldwide into facing this flaw in their faith.

    Islam will not correct itself from within. It perceives itself as perfect. And it is probably a stretch to think that objective exposure of the flaws within Islam will lead to some sort of reformation in its intolerance toward non-Muslims.

    Media exposure of flaws within a financial institution,political organization or a religion should act as an agent for correcting those flaws when the law ignores the problem or simply fails to do anything. The failure to be objectively critical of now obviously genocidal behavior is only going to embolden future Jihadists.

    Media refusing to make the connection between broken components of Islam and the murder of people who do not subscribe to this faith are implicitly responsible in those deaths. When the Nazis systematically tried to eliminate undesirables in the pursuit of Hitler's Master Race the world rose up and condemned this practice. How is it any different if the Muslims try to eliminate people of other undesirable faiths?

    Lucy Qassam, I dont get your logic. Your analogy is flawed, because there is no similarity between a lone person like Jesse James, and Osama Bin Laden/all of Islam that requires the subjugation of the world. Oh well, people like you will never get it, until one of our cities is nuked. But then if it isnt your city and your still alive I am sure you will make excuses for it because we were over there.

    Ya right, what we need to do is apologize and beg their forgiveness then they will leave us alone (you obviously dont understand islam). Next we allow them to slowly take over our country, like the UK, Europe, Australia, then you'll be crying. You'll love the way they treat women, snicker. But hey, at least we didnt offend anyone.

  • brenanc

    Your sources are impeccable. In fact, I briefed Bush and Cheney before they briefed Hasan. What I'd like to know, is how your sources penetrated the vast right-wing conspiracy's facility in manipulating the time-space continuum?

    By the way, Laura Bush sure makes some great tamales.

  • jmattpatton

    Yesterday on the TV they interviewed the father of a female soldier wounded in the shooting. She told her father that Hasan walked into the Readiness Center, yelled “Allah Akbar” and began shooting. She felt it was a training scenario for a moment until the soldier next to her was shot dead.

    “Allah akbar” means god is great, I'm pretty sure. This is not the case of a soldier loosing it per se but the case of a Muslim acting in the name of their religion and their god, Allah. He murdered in the name of Allah. That is Jihad to me.

  • LucyQ

    You didn't answer my question. Jesse James was just a name I threw out. I know Islam very well, well enough to know Ishmael is evil, not stupid.

    How does our being over there stop Ishmael from getting nukes? Again, why are we nation building for Islam, wanting our taxes to be raised to afford all this?

    Which one of our presidents armed Pakistan with nukes? I think it was Reagan but not sure. You don't understand Islam because if you did, you'd understand why we shouldn't be nation building there, making social workers and nurses out of our armed forces.

  • daljit123

    The islam oriented countries are a growing with their jihad day by day without almost a little resistance..we would have to stop it before it gets over the world..

    Ditto, brenanc, but all the same, wasn't GW Bush, who wanted to “keep the door open” to American Muslims, known for his cynical assurances that “Islam is a religion of peace?” Well, Cowboy, the horse is out of the barn, or rather, the camel is inside the tent!

  • brenanc

    GJ:

    There are things I like about Dubya and things I don't.

    I like that he kept us safe, I like that he pushed for the surge in Iraq, I like that he deposed Saddam Hussein, and I especially like that he wasn't Al Gore or John Kerry. Run the 2000 and 2004 elections over and I'll still vote for Bush, despite his failings (see below).

    What I don't like about Bush: He was about as articulate as Sean Penn speaking without a script, he never fought the Democrats over Social Security reform, in fact he never fought over anything. He pretty much quit trying–much like his father did after Desert Storm. His lack of trying and unwillingness or inability to articulate a vision different from Pelosi and Reid set the stage for the Republican defeats in 2006 and 2008. AND, he said Islam is a religion of peace. Watta crock! I saw bunches of Muslims at the Denver Airport today–one of them pushing a rifle case(?) on a baggage cart. I'm so proud of our society's tolerance….

    I do not see how a person who lives in the belly of the beast; America or any other Imperialist enemy can with any degree of accuracy gauge what is going on in the world right now. All the comments above stink with patriotism that blind obedience thrives on! Do some reading about the major defeats that America and the other Capitalist nations are experiencing and see where your great American dream is headed. I know it goes back as far as Viet Nam for me and I hope for many Viet Nams to come to bring the Imperiast Giant America to her knees!

    Not gunna happen bro, cause the other side has played their hand to early. They dont have the fire power, or the economy, or infastructure. They will awaken the Giant when they make the fatal mistake and nuke or bio one of our cities and then all hell is going to break loose. They just better hope that doesnt happen when there is a hard ass president in office, cause it might just be a city for a city.

    Sorry for the disappointment dude, but hey, I think America will be around for a while longer. : )

  • Lindarosemary

    Lary I agree. By the way did you see a link I posted on this page where some Islamic guys here in the United states were out on a street in one of our cities praising the killing of the Ft Hood soldiers? He was calling for more things like that to be done on our soil.

  • Lindarosemary

    Thank you steve Chavez… right on target. The genocide in Darfur has been going for over thirty years. I wonder at the hue and cry over Darfur in recent years. What took people so long????? Seems to be Hollywood's latest reason to put themselves forward. nothing more. Read Francis Bok's book Escape From Slavery. I read this several years ago,right after he wrote it, and it made a real impact on the way I feel about Islam.. Islamic Janjaweed raiders went to his village, killed male villagers, raped and mutilated the women, and he was taken into slavery for 10 long years.. He was only 7 at the time, but escaped at age 17. These raids have gone on for all those years, and they continue even now.

    There are some real fruit bats living in this country, who don't understand the radical mind of the Islamic. They need to read the Qu'ran, and pay attention to the horrible things that have been done in the name of Islam. And they better start praying, because they will not stop until we are all Dhimmis, paying the jizyah

    Another book I strongly recommend is EURABIA written by bat Ye'or. Good Lord read it word for word.

  • Lindarosemary

    Ken Bain, thank you!!! If they won't listen to their own countrymen, I hope they listen to you and others like you. By the way, Ken, we are leaderless, except for our military.

  • hocheeman

    That is a pretty price to pay for settling an issue I would say. God forbid it ever came to that but you are right. I bet you it will be America that launches the first nuclear round because they have been using depleted uranium for some time to pollute the ground in the middle east. Unfortunately it has messed with the gene pool of returning US soldiers who impregnate their women. We will pay, one way or another, no doubts here!

  • Optimus_Maximus

    Islam – a religion of Peace . NOT.

    They do it becuase they are commanded to do so by their religion, which is actually an Isolamofacist system of government.

    All the men are extremely mentally conflicted.

    Recall your youngest years, and the love you had for your mother. As you get older, to be a real man, you must despise all women, including your mother, for they are inferior, and will lead you astray. They do not have equal rights with you under the law. You are taught to keep them covered with smothering layers of clothing so no man may enjoy the sight of them. If you catch your sister with alone with another boy or man not related to her, you are encouraged to kill her to restore your family's honor.

    Makes for a massively unstable mental state where the male can not have a full equal relationship with a woman.

    That's why so many of the fanatical ones have homosexual tendicies, even as they denounce homosexuality and kill openly homosexual men. Everything is done in secret. Beating their wives, secretely yearning for another man, and even fighting their wars. They rarely meet other men in battle head on, but prefer ambushes where they can kill as many women and children as possible.

    This religion, almost by design, creates and nourishes sadistic psychopaths, due to the mental conflicts of a normal human being with the requirements of the Koran, Suras, and Hadiths of the religion.

    Imagine the head of your church and state being a sadistic pedophile, and you are taught to worship him for he is the most holy of all men. And that the most basic demonstration of trust, telling the truth, is taught to be a valid practice only with others of your religion. If any other religion, it's encouraged you lie through your teeth so that you can better defeat them.

    No wonder they are all cowards who fight behind their women whenever possible, so they can then claim the opponent is guilty of “war crimes”.

    The true “wonder” is how long so many Americans will continue to act like a nation of numbskulls that have bought into their lies and continue to give them a pass, instead of calling their evil religion to an accounting.

  • LucyQ

    I agree with you about Islam and that's why I'm against nation-building for Ishmael. Knowing what you know about Islam, do you want to build a nation for Ishmael?

  • sk

    “stink with patriotism”?

    What is stinky about patriotism?

    “I know it goes back as far as Viet Nam for me and I hope for many Viet Nams to come to bring the Imperiast Giant America to her knees!:

    Don't you have some Muslim prayers to say? Islam is imperialist, not America. It's time that we roll back Islam to Mecca, then blow up that meteor.

  • sk

    Oh please, LucyQ. Ishmael already has a nation, and you should know because you are part of it. What you want is for the US to let Muslims build jihad on THEIR timetable.

    I'm no fan of nation building, though. I think it's more efficient to decapitate the leadership of Muslim nations and humiliate Muslims by blowing up mosques and such whenever we hear a peep of a threat. Mecca goes first.

  • hocheeman

    Patriotism reeks of my country right or wrong. We only think we are free in America because we are isolated from the rest of the real world which is in pooverty. The trillions we spend on war and mayhem in the world to promote capitalism, rich for the few and not you!
    If you would really make a study of the Islamic faith you might find a lot of similarity between it and Christianity. Both worship the same God and are not polytheistic like they are in the Orient. Islam accepts Jesus as a prophet by the way. The similarities are numerous and very interesting. Even Christians like a good war with lots of killing. You seem to have a lot of hate in you. Not just you, a lot on this site. Interesting and it does not send a good message at all.

  • hocheeman

    Let me tell you that I will not die for capitalism. I really don't care what you think about the similarities between Islamic and Christian belief. That takes a course on comparative religion. I myself wonder how American that were raised in the Christian faith can go to war and kill innocent families! This is why I do not support our troops at all. They are fighting to preserve the American Way and I am against all that. I do not even say the Pledge to that bloody rag of a flag. It is soaked in the blood of innocents here and over there. I do not buy the lies being pushed by the government here that I loathe!

  • davarino

    Ok then what? How do we solve this problem?

  • davarino

    Hey Hoch, if they didnt start this we wouldnt be talkin. Personally you have not shamed me with your deep insiteful knowledge of the similarities between islam and christianity, dont really care. All I care about is my safety and everyone elses safety, well maybe not yours, cause I am sure you wouldnt have the balls to defend yourself, much less any one else.
    Anyway, how did this become an issue of spreading the wealth. So you really think this about the middle east fighting for a cup of soup? You want to talk about us spending money on war, think about all the money these oil rich nations are pissing away on their fight for Jihad. If these oil rich middle eastern countries would invest the tons of money they have on their own nation, they would have a half way descent place to live. I guess they are spending their money on what they consider to be more important…….. and what do you think that is…..anybody…..anybody…..anybody….come on Hoch I know you know this one.

  • davarino

    Wow, what an imagination. The things bouncing around in your head. Must keep you very occupied trying to sort out fiction from reality.

  • turbeaux

    We just suffered the biggest Islamic jihad terrorist attack on our homeland since 9/29. Meanwhile, we have B. Hussein Obama in the White House telling us not to rush to judgment.

    It is sort of like we have a president today who dithering on whether or not to continue a silly fantasy-based nation building mission in Afghanistan to try to win the hearts and minds of Muslims who are obligated per their religion to hate our guts no matter what, while Iran, on the other hand, with impunity and while thumbing its nose at the kafir non-Islamic world is on the verge of acquiring the Islamic bomb, which will inevitably lead to the proliferation of nuclear weapons across the entire Dar al Islam.

    Yep it’s obvious B. Hussein Obama and his ilk have their priorities straight. Not that the Republicans and unfortunately many conservatives today aren’t also as blind as a bat as well when it comes to Islam and Muslims! Whatever happened to quickly and forcefully obliterating our enemies ASAP, creating deterrence, and then going home? Apparently, political correct multiculturalism has afflicted our society every bit as bad as the Bubonic Plague afflicted the world during the Dark Ages.

    Not only that but we are having mosques now all across the country asking for extra police protection because of a feared backlash by so-called Islamaphobes or people who otherwise legitimately criticize Islam, even though so for, knock on wood, there has been no backlash.

    In other words, like they deceptively have been doing for many years now, CAIR and the other many Saudi funded Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan) groups are using this tragic event to make the Muslims out to be the victims in the minds of the gullible, clueless, and naive politically correct.

    Considering the current occupants of the White House and the current majorities in Congress, along with the long established alliance the left has had with Islam, in the end this event will be attributed to a psychopath who just snapped and decided to unleash an attack in which 13 of our finest were shot down in cold blood and 38 were maimed and injured. No heads will ever roll for this monstrosity!

    Sort of like GWB never fired those multicultural politically correct moonbats whose incompetence was responsible for letting 9/11 happen. Instead, GWB just appointed an idiotic 9/11 commission to sweep their incompetence under the rug and to justify doubling the size of the federal government under the guise of protecting the homeland and to also make accommodation, per his Saudi and Gulf State benefactors, for Muslim immigration and all the excess baggage it carries along with it.

    Don’t look now but this country is being auctioned off by our so-called leaders and not necessarily to the highest bidders. Unfortunately, there will be no more America left over for our children and grandchildren. It is a very sorry state of affairs and I don’t like it one bit!

It is not fair to place American soldiers in the company of criminals whose orientation dermand loyalty not to America, but to ethnocentric 7th Century theology.Why aren't our soldiers being protected?

    Exactly. We ought to let our armed forces be the killing machine they're trained to be, not nurses and social workers.

  • hocheeman

    Quite the contrary my friend. Being a communist means I am a continual student of world affairs. The press in America is deaf to the world's problems and always get it wrong on purpose because they are controlled by the government for good reason. They like us all quiet and not buzzed up, that is why they say the recession has ended and things are getting back to normal. Well, if you believe that, I have bridge in Brooklyn I want you to look at. Our country America thrives on a dumbed down population to survive. Revolutions thrive on people excited into action and America wants none of that and will control it. That is why most all demonstration are useless. They do not involve enough of the working class for they must be at work if they have a job. Idle people and angry people are the building blocks of revolution.
    I am not confused at all. Everything I have read of Marx is coming true. There is no escape. Capitalism is the most horrific form of economic planning ever conceived of and all wealthy land owners love it. The vast majority of the population in America get no benefits whatsoever from it. In fact many have lost their homes and their jobs and have no health care. They will continue to have no health care even under the new plan that is just pap for the masses. That I do not understand and either did the government that pushed it though and that was by plan. So, you see, I keep up on what is happening and I see a lot that is good and a lot that is bad. But I know the difference, do you?

  • LucyQ

    I agree with 'sk' wrote above. We leave Afghanistan and Iraq with as much damage as possible and pull back slowly with utter toughness. We announce on loudspeakers that for every murder or disability of US soldiers they cause, even a failed attempt, we will blow up a mosque and other institutions…..even if we built or repaired it for them.

    If violence continues, we announce we'll drop tons of bombs on them. We remind of the $50 million reward (or whatever the amount is now) for bin laden and his men on loudspeakers and we leave.

    And then, we leave, one brigade at a time. What will happen in Iraq and Afghanistan? They'll be glad we're gone, will think real hard before attacking us again and go back to killing each other. Ishmael respects brutal force and that's all.

  • davarino

    Yes I do know the difference. I do know that no system is perfect and there never will be one, do you? Unfortunately, you communists think you can create one. You talk about Capitalism's evils, are you kidding me? So for everyone here, can you please inform us how communism is so much better. I would really like to hear it. Not just your pie in the sky wish list, but name me all of the good things that current and past communist regimes have done.

  • Optimus_Maximus

    Let me think a second..NO.

    Let's be honest. The only way we “changed the minds” of the Nazis and the Japanese in WWII was to break their will to fight. We made the cost of resisting us too high. We mandated changes in their educational system where the tenents of Nazism and Bushido were no longer instilled into their youth.

    Are we doing similar things today in Iraq and Afghanistan? No, because that is no longer politically correct. Practical, effective actions be damned. We are limited to politically correct actions. That's why both Iraq and Afghanistan still have the legal right to kill apostates of Islam To be a Christian or Jew openly in either society is to invite death.

    Islam is basically incompatible with a free society. So I believe we are throwing our money down a rat hole to build a sembilance of something (democracy) that is unsustainable in any Islamic culture. It's simple a manner of time before some Islamic cleric points out that democracy is against the Quran, and all the teachings of Mohammed, and lead a revolt to overthrow it.

    In the words of Ann Coulter, “We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.”

  • LucyQ

    Good post although I don't agree with Ann Coulter but do understand and appreciate her solution when she said that shortly after 911.

    Indeed, Islamic clerics have already said it. This is a quote from Bat Ye'or's book:

    “Thanks to your democratic laws, we will invade you. Thanks to our Islamic laws, we will conquer you.”

  • hocheeman

    Cuba of course. Free health care, free education through grad school, no one starves. That is all I need. I will go back to teaching BUT, the government here will not let me leave. I tried already. Because Cuba has been declared our enemy. My social security would not transfer to a communist country. I could not survive. I am a communist so I can understand how bad America is for killing those who do not agree with them and then profiting by pillaging their resources. America is a Satanic nation. I am outa here, do the research yourself, you are unteachable. Tough luck.

  • davarino

    Oh ya I can see that Hoch. I wander why it that so many people have braved the dangers of crossing the gulf to leave such a wonderful nation as Cuba. You make such a convincing arguement for communism by choosing Cuba. I throw up my arms in surrender, you got me : ) I hope you are more convincing in class cause I would want a refund dude.

    I'm sorry, I dont mean to be such a smart ass but come on, who are you kidding. Are you serious man? You have to do better than that. Free health care, really? What does that consist of, asperin and a band aid? Free education? Hmm I am sure they are well indoctrinated in communist ways.

    The apologists for Hitler were the likes of Henry Ford and Prescott Bush, who did business with the Third Reich. Conservative Lothrop Stoddard, one of America's most virulent right-wing Anti-Semites and racists, traveled to Germany and was given a royal welcome (Germany's euthanasia program was modeled after that developed by American conservatives). Most conservatives were right-wing isolationists, who had to be dragged kicking and screaming into the war effort.

    Your are sharp as a tack, Mr. Nom de Plume! Not only did 9/11 occur on his watch, but it followed his daddy's Presidency. During the intervening eight years, al Qaeda took a vacation, only to reconstitute themselves on 21 January 2001. Few have intellects so sublime, as to perceive the sequence of these events.

    Your intellect (and quite possibly, your moral courage) is matched by that of our current President, who–after declaring success in the war in Afghanistan to be in our nation's vital interest, has yet to act on his hand-picked general's request for more troops.

    In the 1970s and '80s, we in mainland Britain had to encounter all kinds of Irish terrorist atrocities (eg. bombs on the London subway; I lived there then) side by side with them getting public support from politicians (eg London mayor Ken livingstone), and being given all kinds of “rights” and legitimacy; and we were able to do nothing about it. Sadly, they were mostly financed from the US, and whenever a terrorist escaped there, a judge (“liberal”, no doubt) would deny extradition. It's an evil world.

  • http://twitter.com/crazycatkid crazycatkid

    Read Goldberg's “Liberal Fascism” for a quite different take on use of words such as “Conservative” and “LIberal” (different than your use) and to explore the socialist/progressive bases of ideas like euthanasia. So, perhaps conservatives of today have little in common with those you refer to as conservatives in your comment above. Your terminology could therefore be misleading….

    NO TRUE MUSLIM should ever be allowed to enter the United States of America Armed Forces.

    U.S. Officers entering the service must receive a commission from the President of the United States, and U.S. Enlisted personnel volunteer their service.

    Both Armed Forces categories must be duly sworn by oath and sign a binding contractual agreement with the U.S. Government for however many years that they will serve.

    All personnel solemnly swear or affirm to bear true faith and allegiance to our flag and country, and promise to obey all orders of the President of the United States and all other officers appointed over them.

    No true Muslim can bear true faith and allegiance to anyone or anything else other than to Allah, His Prophet Muhammad, and the Holy Qur'an.

    The following is from the Qur'an:

    Surah (9:111)
    Verily, Allah has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allah's Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur'an. And who is truer to his covenant than Allah? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success.

    True Muslims MUST FIGHT IN ALLAH's CAUSE; KILL OTHERS, AND ARE KILLED.

    That is why Major Nidal Malik Hasan would not agree to deploy to the Middle East and engage other Muslim soldiers in war or combat situation. He couldn't, because the Muslim Brotherhood knows no boundaries; it is a Global Brotherhood.

    You should dig under the cover (of the Qur'an) before you have to take cover!

    It is very unfortunate what has happened at Fort Hood, Texas. But don't think it won't happen anywhere else in our country by other True Muslims who may be members in the U.S. Armed Forces.

    I claim this comment – Salubrius It was the Times that mysteriously withdrew the comment of Hasan shouting Allahu Akbar. later, the American media picked it up.

    Listen to what Walid Shoebat has been telling us…its “All” true…this was Nadal Hasan's duty as a muslim to do..”kill the people of the book whereever you find them”…its truly a sick sick religion…nothing but hatred taught…the children all throughout the Middle East are brainwashed…made to memorize the Koran word for word…thats all they do…Walid is an amazing speaker and speaks from experience…he was a former PLO terrorist converted to Christianity…Mohammed clearly states in the Hadith…”In the ends of days, many will defect from the faith, kill them when you see them whereever you find them.” “This is the question the West NEEDS to understand….What part of kill don't they (the west) understand? This is not a catagorical kill…its a literal kill”….Thank you VERY much Walid for speaking out against muslim extremists…”There are peaceful and moderate muslims worldwide living in peace with their non-muslim neighbors and have no intention on waging war against us non-believers…BUT there is NO peaceful and moderate Islam.”
