If the UK and the US had more sanity and less political correctness when it comes to Islam, this sort of thing could be nipped in the bud.
A member of the Afghan National Army in Helmand said the attacker – shot dead after opening fire – was from Laghman Province, in the east of the country and had joined the Afghan army a year ago.
“He was well-known as being religious and would lead prayers, acting as an imam,” said the soldier, speaking on condition of anonymity.
In a sane framework, being a very religious wannabe Imam would ring some alarm bells, especially after numerous insider attacks have taken place. But in the imaginary rainbow kingdom of political correctness, being very religious is just great until the first cries of Allah Akbar are followed by bullets.
“An individual wearing an Afghan National Army uniform turned his weapon against International Security Assistance Force (Isaf) service members in southern Afghanistan yesterday, killing one,” is how Isaf, the Nato force described the killing in a statement on Tuesday.
Too bad we can’t in any way predict the likelihood of one individual turning terrorist over another. Well we can, but we aren’t going to because that would just alienate Muslims and lead to terrorist attacks against us… like this attack.
