Fear is the order of the day in the Defense Department, then.
And then there’s hope. The Obama Administration hopes that by calling the Fort Hood massacre “workplace violence,” we will all accept Nidal Hasan’s presence as a member of the workplace. He’s just the same as Sgt. Bill or Lt. Jane — he just happens to hate America and all that it stands for. Tomayto, tomahto.
What’s the point of this little fiction? By including Hasan in the “workplace,” the Obama Administration hopes to convince Muslims around the world that we want them as part of our global workplace. For the love of Allah, if they can see that we’ll accept even their most militant members into our military, won’t they be able to see that we can all live together in peace?
And thus, the Obama Administration’s idiotic hope combines with the military’s deathly fear to rewrite history. Those who were killed at Fort Hood become random victims of violence rather than martyrs in the clash of civilizations (whereas for Muslims, Hasan is already a martyr in the clash of civilizations). Hasan’s “Allahu Akhbar” becomes a delightfully exotic version of “going postal,” or another incident of a disturbed soldier “going Rambo.”
While we play pattycake with the terminology of Islamic murder, Muslims around the world have no such qualms. In fact, they label everything we do Western imperialism. Protecting Muslims from the Taliban? Western imperialism. Saving Kuwait from Saddam Hussein? Western imperialism. Lady Gaga? Western imperialism.
So, who’s destined to win this fight – the side that insists that Muslim murder is “workplace violence,” or the side that insists that soldierly workplace violence in defense of Muslims is murder of Muslims? It’s a pretty safe bet that the side that sees “Allahu Akhbar” as a call to diversity training will end up on the wrong side of history.
