Barack Obama calls for calm as Muslim community fears backlash over Fort Hood killings
Daily Mail ^

Posted on 11/07/2009 9:26:21 AM PST by traumer

Barack Obama has tried to calm racial tensions in the US after the Muslim community voiced fears it would face a backlash from the Fort Hood killings.

The president's intervention follows two days after Muslim army psychiatrist Major Nidal Malik Hasan opened fire on colleagues at the military base in Texas, killing 13 and wounding 30.

Hundreds attended a candlelit vigil last night at Ford Hood, the country's largest army camp, while the investigation into the incident is continuing.

Major Hasan, 39, whose spree was stopped when he was shot four times by Police Sergeant Kimberley Munley, remains in a coma.

Mr Obama used his weekly radio and internet address to praise the heroism of those who ended Hasan's rampage and to reassure the nation of the quality of their training.

He spoke of their diversity in a move to calm any anti-Muslim backlash to the killings. Major Hasan was reported to have shouted 'Allahu Akbar', Arabic for 'God is Great', as he jumped on a desk and opened fire. Barack Obama

Mr Obama said: 'They are Americans of every race, faith and station. They are Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus and non-believers.

'They are descendants of immigrants and immigrants themselves. They reflect the diversity that makes this America. But what they share is a patriotism like no other.'

Mark Steyn said it well

Non-Muslims - 13
Muslims - 0

What’s the worry?

Barack Obama calls for calm as Muslim community fears backlash over Fort Hood killings Non-Muslim community fears more attacks due to insane government policy of sending Muslims in the military to fight Muslims.

Fixed it.

The best thing these “frigtened muslims” could do would be...

STORM the hospital, find Hasan and kill him...

Then the rest of the United States will understand WHICH side the “frigtened muslims” are on...

Until then they are just “frigtened muslims who will eventually turn into a lone wolf jihadist”...

I was unaware that Islam is a race. I thought it was a religion. Does the Daily Mail employ editors? Or did they report this correctly and Obama started babbling about race when asked about the Fort Hood killings?

If Moslims fear a backlash there is an easy way to preempt it:

1. Have every Imam in the US go to their Mosque and denounce this man’s acts AND VIEWS against his own country.

2. Have opinion/interest groups like Cair similarly denounce this guy.

3. Have a big fund raising drive at all Mosques in the US and give all the money to the USO.

I’m sick of panicked Muslims fearing backlashes that never come. Take your sick, disgusting religion, and shut up. Quit whining. Civilized people aren’t going to treat mentally ill Islamists like pig-headed Muslims treat non Muslims in their countries.

As sick as I am of idiotic, panicked, Islamic drama queens, the asinine politicians who cater to them are worse.

We've faced all-out war declared on us by Muslims for 1400 years and counting. Does Baraq al-Hussein have anything to say about that?

There's no friggin' racial tensions over this. We're all po'd that PC means death to Americans ON USA soil, on a Military Base by a Allah loving Muslim.

We simply refuse to bend and pat these Muslims on the back. That's not a religion, it's a cult...and it still means death to those who don't conform. Obama doesn't get it...Wonder why.

Obama wants to bring in more Muslim immigrants, because he is a Muslim. This nation elected a Muslim president, and we’re surprised when he sides with Muslims? He is very carefully not sympathizing with the fallen soldiers or their families at Fort Hood - the victims of the latest Muslim bloodletting. And Democrats are working very hard today to pass the Muslim’s healthcare takeover law. Is our nation upside down, or what?

Moron...you have set racial relations back 50 years in the black community. Nice work quisling.

after the Muslim community voiced fears it would face a backlash from the Fort Hood killings.

They should fear a backlash. Start rousting out the jihadist dirtbags now, or we have no choice but to consider you all suspect.

It's that patriotism like no other that really has me worried.

My order is God, family and country!

Apparently, moslems have the same order only they have the terrorist allah instead of our loving God!

That is a huge concern!

The Muslims in this country are afraid that the people in this country maybe are half as psycho as the Muslims themselves. If a Christian had been given citizenship in a Muslim country and randomly killed innocent people while shouting about Christ, the riots would be continuing for weeks.

This has absolutely nothing to do with "racial" tensions and everything to do with ideological fanaticism.

In 1944, there was absolutely nothing wrong with "Germans". One of them, by the name of Eisenhower, was our Supreme Allied Commander. There was, however, something very seriously wrong with the Nazi ideology.

Likewise, today, there is nothing wrong with modern-day "Muslims" that reject the fanaticism radical Islamists just as modern-day Catholics and Protestants in the U.S. reject the religious fanaticism that had their ancestors burning each other at the stake.

The underlying problem with far to many in the U.S. Muslim community is that they are not willing to condemn and root out the fanatics in their community and they then expect the rest of us to ignore reality in the interests of Political Correctness.

For the umpteenth time, for possible penetration of your thick skulls, and into your pea brains, presstitutes, "ISLAM" is *not* a race!! It is (purportedly, but a whole heckova lot of doubt obtains in many quarters) a religion!! Get a clue!!

I am calm Barry O.

They stay on their side, I stay on my side, we got no problems.

If they come on my side and disturbing me, well... another story.

So I am calm, although I am getting hungry.

I am going to see what’s in the fridge. Calmly.
