Fort Hood Shooter Regularly Described War on Terror as "War on Islam"
jihadwatch.org ^ | November 6, 2009 | staff

Islamic jihadists routinely characterize anti-terror efforts as part of a "war on Islam." But of course, there is no war on terror, and there is no war on Islam. There is just the Islamic jihad against the U.S. and the West. "Hasan Called War on Terror 'War Against Islam,' Classmate Says," by Justin Blum for Bloomberg, November 6:

Nov. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the Army psychiatrist accused of killing 13 people and wounding 30 others at the Fort Hood Army Base in Texas, regularly described the war on terror as "a war against Islam," according to a doctor who was in a graduate program with him. While studying for a masters degree in public health in 2007, Hasan used a presentation for an environmental health class to argue that Muslims were being targeted by the U.S. anti-terror campaign, said Val Finnell, a classmate.

"He was very vocal about the war, very upfront about being a Muslim first and an American second," said Finnell, 41, a preventive medicine doctor in Los Angeles, in an interview today. "He was always concerned that Muslims in the military were being persecuted."...

I simply can not believe this either!

It was a terrorist attack on our soil.Guess we better just get used to these “loners” , just like all the loners in Iraq and aghanistan who ‘alone’ blow themselves up. and after all, anyone who would blow himself up MUST be crazy, so no jihad there!

Islam seeks world domination.

Unless you are OK with that then you are at war against Islam in one way or another and whether you like it or not.

How many ticking Muslim bombs like Hasan are walking around loose?

Why did the FBI hesitate to pull the plug on this American-hating Muzzie?

Now there are 12 decent Americans dead because the FBI is not doing its job.

“He was very vocal about the war, very upfront about being a Muslim first and an American second,”

Before 9-11, I was asking friends (people who should know better) if a “good Muslim” can be a “good American”.

I knew what the answer was then.............

It hasn’t changed, either.

Yes, and most likely everyone around him knew of his feelings and probably felt he was a nutcase. However, all likely also knew that to accuse him of such publically would put them in a world of PC shit.

No matter what, the msm and this administration are going to have to walk up to the fact this was a terrorist attack by a mole.

What is astonishing is he didn’t even cover his feelings and yet was able to do what he wanted without anybody even acknowledging his predilections.

Of course not.

Didn't we see how quickly the FBI went out of their way to "ASSURE" us that this had nothing to do with terrorism, shortly after the incident began, much before any investigation had even begun.

That is now their (and Dept of Homeland INsecurity's) default position.

The Feebs and DHS are so in bed with the MOOZIES and don't want to upset any of DEAR LEADER's friends and associates that they will NEVER consider or call this an act of Terrorism and you can bet your last dime, the State-Run media and sadly now even FOX, will be careful to claim this is what it was.

I was so pissed at Twinkle Toes Schlep Smith yesterday I had to turn the volume off as I was getting sick and thought I'd throw something right thru the screen.

PC run amok!!!

That would be a newly diagnosed “second hand PTSD”. Very deadly indeed.

THESE ARE EVIDENTLY HIS OWN WORDS

NidalHasan scribbled: 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.

very upfront about being a Muslim first and an American second

This is completely true of every Muslim in America. Their true loyalty is to the Ummah. The goal of Islam is complete domination of the world and subjection of every human to a new Caliphate. Islam is an imperialist doctrine.

MARK STEYN: MULTICULTURAL ILLUSIONS KILL - NO STRATEGY TO DEFEND AGAINST IDEOLOGY
dakota beacon ^ | November 06, 2009 | Mark Steyn

Posted on Friday, November 06, 2009 9:36:18 AM by Mount Athos

Thirteen dead and 31 wounded would be a bad day for the US military in Afghanistan, and a great victory for the Taliban. When it happens in Texas, in the heart of the biggest military base in the nation, at a processing center for soldiers either returning from or deploying to combat overseas, it is not merely a “tragedy” (as too many people called it) but a glimpse of a potentially fatal flaw at the heart of what we have called, since 9/11, the “war on terror”. Brave soldiers trained to hunt down and kill America’s enemy abroad were killed in the safety and security of home by, in essence, the same enemy – a man who believes in and supports everything the enemy does.

And he’s a US Army major.

And his superior officers and other authorities knew about his beliefs but seemed to think it was just a bit of harmless multicultural diversity – as if believing that “the Muslims should stand up and fight against the aggressor” (ie, his fellow American soldiers) and writing Internet paeans to the “noble” “heroism” of suicide bombers and, indeed, objectively supporting the other side in an active war is to be regarded as just some kind of alternative lifestyle that adds to the general vibrancy of the base.

When it emerged early on Thursday afternoon that the shooter was Nidal Malik Hasan, there appeared shortly thereafter on Twitter a flurry of posts with the striking formulation: “Please judge Major Malik Nadal [sic] by his actions and not by his name.”

The above is an excerpt. Go to the link below for Mark’s complete oped.

I absolutely believe mental disease can be contagious. Hang around a bunch of people with mental illnesses - and you become prone to similar mental diseases...

Read the koran, and hang around a bunch of people who think its the word of God (vs. the word of Satan) - and you're almost guaranteed to go insane (and to have an urge to kill people who don't hold to your insanity)...

Everyone needs to understand the “choices” they are giving us.

A Muslim is to conduct war on (ie, KILL) the infidel until the entire world is converted or living in subjugation as “dhimmis”. Now, if you want to understand what living as a “dhimmi” would mean, think about blacks in the antebellum south and multiply by about 100.

Your choices, as far as Islam goes:
1) Conversion
2) Slavery
3) Death

This is what people are afraid of. Once you tell the truth, then, if you’re in a leadership position, you HAVE to do something about it.
