What You Won't Hear From The Dominant Media
Guest Commentary by Retired U.S. Army Major John Birch
I am a former Intelligence Officer, and still get some pretty interesting information that I would say, while not classified, is "insider." I have a few comments on "Major" Hasan, and have appended some information that I think will enlighten the picture of what is going on in our military. Political Correctness carried to the extreme.
Major Hasan is an abomination. The place he martyred those soldiers is the same building I was in a year ago prepping to go to Afghanistan, only I was at Fort Jackson. This facility is a one stop building to certify soldiers for deployment to a combat zone. And it was there that Hasan chose to martyr America's best while yelling Allahu Akbar!"
But it is not terrorism, so says de facto President Obama and his, apparently, ...

The west is at war with major parts of islam. Or at least, they are at war with us.
Good one...I like the 34 clues in the article....
34 Clues to US Army Major Nidal Hasan’s Motivations
“His motivations are unknown.....”
“The motive behind the shootings was not clear.....”
“Agents were trying to find a motivation for the attack.....”
“It was unclear what the motive was.....”
“There are many unknowns, most of all his motive.....”
“The motive remains unclear.....”
“It’s too early to draw conclusions .....”
“It is unclear what might have motivated Major Hasan .....”
“The jury’s still out on motivation.....”
The media are still quite puzzled by Major Nidal Hasan’s motivations that led him to gun down his fellow American soldiers at Ft. Hood. Yet in the same media’s reporting, the below clues emerge. When gathered together, you would think the dots could easily be connected.
CLUES (sources: various mainstream media)
1. At the shooting, Hasan first bowed his head in prayer and then shouted Allahu Akbar (God is Great) as he shot over 50 soldiers in a calm and measured manner.
2. Store video the morning of the shooting shows Hasan wearing a traditional Muslim WHITE robe and hat. He had began wearing Arabic/Muslim-style clothing in recent weeks.
3. Hasan handed out Qurans to his neighbors a few days before and the day of the shooting, including giving a Quran to his neighbor at 9 am the day of the shooting, telling her, Im going to do good work for God before leaving for the base.
4. A recent convert to Islam described how he frequently prayed with Hasan at the town mosque after Hasan was deployed to Fort Hood in July. They last worshiped together at predawn prayers on the day of the massacre when Hasan appeared relaxed and not in any way troubled or nervous.
5. Hasan told the convert that the war on terror was really a war against Islam. Hasan also expressed anti-Jewish sentiments and defended suicide bombings.
6. During dinner the night before the shooting, Hasan felt he should not go to Afghanistan, that he was supposed to quit. In the Koran, it says you are not supposed to have alliances with Jews or Christians, and if you are killed in the military fighting against Muslims, you will go to hell.
7. Hasans deceased parents were Palestinians immigrants from the West Bank/Jordan. Hasans father was 16 years old when he immigrated to America and later operated a bar and grill in Roanoke, VA.
8. On a form Hasan filled out at the Muslim Community Center in Silver Spring, Maryland, he gave his nationality not as American but as Palestinian. Yet he was born in Arlington, Virginia on 8 Sep 1970. (See Allegiance in a Time of Globalization, DOD PERSEREC, Dec 2008)
9. Hasan has family in the Middle East, including a grandfather, uncle and cousins which he and they would visit each other.
10. Hasans cousin in the Palestinian city of Ramallah, Mohammad Munif Abdallah Hasan, said the Army major had wanted to leave the military because he felt disrespected over his religion.
11. His cousin said: If he had killed one or two, I could say that he was defending himself. I could say that there could have been a problem between two sides which led to the use of weapons.
12. Hasan visited websites espousing radical Islamist ideas.
13. Hasan made these kinds of statements to coworkers: Muslims have the right to rise up against the U.S. military. Muslims have a right to stand up against the aggressors. He spoke favorably about people who strap bombs on themselves and go into Times Square.
14. Hasan gave a presentation to military masters degree students in which he argued the war on terrorism was a war against Islam. This was in an environmental health class at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, MD. When challenged about what does his topic has to do with environmental health, Hasan became agitated, sweaty, nervous and emotional.
15. Hasan made himself a lightning rod by making his extreme views known to everyone.
16. Hasan was put on probation early in his postgraduate work and was disciplined for proselytizing about his Muslim faith with patients and colleagues.
17. Hasan was a very devout member of and daily visitor to the Muslim Community Center in Silver Spring, Md. Attended prayers at least once a day, seven days a week. (See Saudi Publications On Hate Ideology Fill American Mosques. Important reading for security professionals)
18. A friend who also attended the mosque said, He was my role model when it came to the Islam life. He was so devout. He would come to the early morning prayers — even in the summer when it began at 4 am or 5 am, the early prayers I wouldnt go to, he would be there.
19. Hasan wrote Allah on his door in Silver Spring, MD according to his neighbor.
20. Hasan wrote an internet posting defending suicide bombers: .....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.....
21. At the Muslim Community Center in Silver Spring, MD, he asked for feedback about a talk he had prepared for his Army supervisors on the role of Muslims in the military. Hasan argued that if military duties contradicted a soldiers religion, the soldier should be released from duty.
22. After 9/11 and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, Hasan seemed to grow more disenchanted with his duties. He did not talk war or politics, but he did tell me once the war started that what he worried most about was having to fight against other Muslims. He did not feel it was right.Friend at Muslim community center
23. Hasan attended two matchmaking events at his Muslim community center to find a good Muslim woman for his wife but he had too many conditions for his match . He wanted a very religious wife who adheres to the Quran, wore the hijab and prayed five times a day. First preference was an Arab woman followed by someone of Indian, Pakistani or Bangladeshi descent.
24. Hasan avoided contact with his female coworkers. Refused to be photographed for an office Christmas photo since women were in the photo.
25. Hasan worshiped at the Texas mosque each day at 6 am, and often prayed there five times a day, especially during the holy month of Ramadan. (See Saudi Publications On Hate Ideology Fill American Mosques)
26. Hasan had been mentoring an 18-year old Catholic man on the ways of Islam. Only once during their 12 meetings did Hasan NOT talk about religion. Hasan told this man that Muslims shouldnt be in the U.S. military, because obviously Muslims shouldnt kill Muslims. He told him not to join the Army.
27. At the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland, Hasan told his fellow military master degree students, Im a Muslim first and an American second. (See Allegiance in a Time of Globalization, DOD PERSEREC, Dec 2008)
28. Hasan gave an hour-long talk on the Koran in front of dozens of other doctors at Walter Reed Army Medical Centre in Washington DC. He said non-believers should be beheaded and have boiling oil poured down their throats. That non-Muslims were infidels condemned to hell who should be set on fire.
29. Fellow doctors have recounted how they were repeatedly harangued by Hasan about Islam.
30. During a conversation with a leader of the Texas mosque he attended, Hasan seemed obsessed with the question of what to tell Muslim soldiers about fighting fellow Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan.
31. Hasan attended the controversial Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, in 2001 at the same time as two of the September 11 terrorists.
32. This mosque was led by radical imam Anwar al-Awlaki said to be a spiritual adviser to three of the hijackers who attacked America on 9/11. al-Awlaki was born in the US but now lives in Yemen. He is an al-Qaeda supporter who targets US Muslims with radical online lectures on Islam.
33. Hasans eyes lit up when he mentioned his deep respect for al-Awlaki’s teachings, according to a fellow Muslim officer at the Fort Hood base in Texas.
34. Today (9 November 09), al-Awlaki wrote on his blog a post titled, Nidal Hassan Did the Right Thing.
Nidal Hassan is a hero. He is a man of conscience who could not bear living the contradiction of being a Muslim and serving in an army that is fighting against his own people.
.....Any decent Muslim cannot live, understanding properly his duties towards his Creator and his fellow Muslims, and yet serve as a US soldier. Nidal opened fire on soldiers who were on their way to be deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan.
How can there be any dispute about the virtue of what he has done? In fact the only way a Muslim could Islamically justify serving as a soldier in the U.S. army is if his intention is to follow the footsteps of men like Nidal.
The heroic act of brother Nidal also shows the dilemma of the Muslim American community. Increasingly they are being cornered into taking stances that would either make them betray Islam or betray their nation. Many amongst them are choosing the former.
The fact that fighting against the US army is an Islamic duty today cannot be disputed. No scholar with a grain of Islamic knowledge can defy the clear cut proofs that Muslims today have the right — rather the duty — to fight against American tyranny.
Nidal has killed soldiers who were about to be deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan in order to kill Muslims. The American Muslims who condemned his actions have committed treason against the Muslim Ummah and have fallen into hypocrisy.
Allah(swt) says: Give tidings to the hypocrites that there is for them a painful punishment......May Allah grant our brother Nidal patience, perseverance and steadfastness and we ask Allah to accept from him his great heroic act. Amen.
Sadly so many talking heads and the corrupt Lame Stream Media are aiding and abetting this sham which will allow our Commander-in-Least to slide.
Thank you for posting this. PC is killing America. I feel we haven’t seen the last of these attacks, only the beginning.
America is shackled by the PC paralysis by analysis. When will true leaders stand up and take action to stop this insanity?
We in the West have been lied to :
Allahu Akbar does not mean god is great.
In Arabic, Allahu Akbar means Allah is GREATER
The question needs to be asked: greater than whom
Greater than YHvH of cause
Greater than the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Israel.
This is why Muslims are commanded in the Qur'an
to kill all who follow YHvH.
Muslims are told that the only sure way to "paradise"
is by killing non-muslims as a Soldier of Allah.
This fact is fundamental and intrinsic
to understanding this war on terror.
There are many who believe that Allah is the adversary.
DING!! DING!! DING!! We have a winner!! Spot on!!
Couple this with our culture of PC, and our bravest and best are in a crossfire. God protect our heroes!!
And thanks for your service CVV, happy belated Veteran's Day!!
Psalm 109:8 Enjoy.
“Let his days be few; and let another take Office.”
we have a socialist muslim luvin ahole for pres..... but.....our military/Bush and society as a hole allowed the pieces to fall into place for this TERRORIST ACT long before zero was sworn in.......
sorry to say.......this muslim extremist was in the army and an officer under Bush....
Much as Psalm 48 relates to 1948.
There are many Bible scholars who believe shalom b'SHEM Yah'shua HaMashiach
that Psalm 109 relates to the year 2009.
Much as Psalm 48 relates to 1948.
Thank you. A(nother) friend e-mailed this to me. In our (King James) Bible, it reads, “...let another take *his* office,” and I certainly hope and pray that it applies to 2009!
NASB as well :shalom b'SHEM Yah'shua HaMashiachNAsbU Psalm 109:8 Let his days be few; Let another take his office.
