Why do we have to read British papers to get Ft. Hood jihadist news?!
Michelle Malkin ^ | November 8, 2009 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 11/08/2009 7:06:25 AM PST by george76

The London Telegraph has the bombshell report on Ft. Hood jihadist Nidal Hassan’s ties to the September 11 terrorists.

Question: Why is it that we have to read British papers to get the unvarnished truths about the Ft. Hood Muslim mass murderer?

News that helps the Democrats is printed here first. News that doesn’t help them has to wait for Fox or the foreign press to dig it up.

the MSM is too busy trying to make the murderer a victim and any info to the contrary is quashed.

Because the media in the United States hates America, is covering for obama , does not want the truth to be known about muslims, and cannot tell the truth. For Starters.

Fondly remembering the USA, where everyone was encouraged to work to their fullest potential. Now, working to your fullest potential will just mean that you have to carry more people who can’t be bothered.

The Saudis have invested heavily in the American media including Disney/ABC, NewsCorp (sad to say)and that clearly colors their coverage beyond the fanatical adherence to PC insanity.

A saudi prince billionaire named Alawaheed is a prime investor.

One of big backers of Tony Rezko is a former Iraqi Baathist named Nahdmi Auchi who has gone to great lengths to suppress press inquiry into his background and has even intimidated the British press.

Over 80% of the mosques in the US are funded by Wahabbi fundamentalists.

I’m wondering what the press’ reaction would be if this were a white Christian yelling “God is Great.” Oh, and if he were found to be an advisor to the Bush transition team.

Hey Michelle! Why do you have idiots such as Ed Morrisey in your Hot Air section who claim or imply we don't know if this is related to Islam and attack people who correcly point out that it is?

Michelle! Why don't you clean up your own pc stables by getting rid of Morrisey?

We all know the answer. They know we know the answer. The real question is...what’s going to be done about it?

Everyday as the MSM outlets lose advertisers and eyeballs in every medium in a big way, people with fewer choices to get “real news” coalesce into smaller, more isolated pools of alternative media. These smaller pools are more easily identified and consequently easier to silence if necessary.

Very soon, we’ll see a 1st Amendment bailout bill that will subsidize with taxpayer dollars, those outlets touting the party line. The remaining legitimate outlets that do not accept federal funds will not be able to compete with those that can operate without regard to cost.

I hate it when a plan comes together. :(

Don't hold your breath. Saudi Prince AlWaleed Bin Talal currently owns 5.7% of Fox News parent company News Corp. This share is all that's keeping Murdoch from losing control of News Corp. Alwaleed also owns Rotana Media, the company that has the exclusive rights to broadcast FOX News Channel in Saudi Arabia.

Do not expect any enthusiasm from Fox News producers to go there.

Some lady legal expert on Geraldo did say it was a terrorist jihad and Geraldo naturally went ballistic. He was shocked at the political incorrectness of her statement and demanded to know, “What if he were a Jew? What if he were a Latino?”

This whole thing is PC run amok. It is not as if this guy was part of any "sleeper cell". He was yelling his anti-Americanism from the rooftop. Anyone with half a brain could see what was coming.

There are Muslims who can serve in the military and are necessary for their culture and language skills. They do exist, however, the religion is a poison and requires extensive vetting. None was done are even attempted in this case. For the love of might, how can a counselor to GI's be an Islamist?? Stupidity.

I have not been on here for a day or so so I don’t know if this has been reported or not..President Bush and Laura went to the memorial services of the slain and wounded soldiers on Friday night..The Muslim went to his party in the white house..The Bushes did not want an publicity but they did not have to worry the MSM commie news would not have reported it anyway.. I have heard thought that the Muslim is going to come to Ft Hood on Tuesday..what for I don’t know..he can take his to late sorry and shove it..On top of all this the Muslim only said a few words about Ft Hood while he was attending other things..and then mention it after he had finished praising others.

Maybe the Telegraph is an exception, but I'd bet that most British papers are just as subject to PCness and multicultural nonsense when it comes to reporting on Islam within the UK.

But British papers do seem to report more objectively on what happens in the US when it comes to Islam.

Bush visits Ft. Hood, Obama goes to Camp David.

0 warned people to not ‘jump to conclusions’ - you know, like he did when a white police officer was doing his job and got cussed out by one of Obama’s friends and they all ended up having to have a ‘beer summit’ .

On the Fox morning show today, one of those guys was saying that Hasan shouted “God is great”. Of course, he really shouted “Allahu Akbar”. Even Fox is PC at times, translating from the Arabic to English to make that part of this story sound less foreign, or less Islamic.

Our newspapers won’t even tell the truth about the koran and hadith. The only times muslims are truly following the command of Allah is when they are killing in his name, forcing conversions to Islam, or subjugating and taxing non-believers.

Quoting the Koran is hate speech.

Sura (2:191-193) - "And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution of Muslims is worse than slaughter of non-believers...and fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah."

Sura (5:33) - "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement"

Sura (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"

Bukhari (52:177) - Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."

Tabari 7:97 The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared,"Kill any Jew who falls under your power."

Ibn Ishaq: 327 - “Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.’”

This was a case of ritualistic genocide, not just murder.There is a significant difference.
God defeated Allah at Fort Hood.He also did not let Hasan die to gain a seat next to his perverted god.

Political Correctness is used to keep America blind to what actually goes on inside a Mujihads heart mind. The left has worked so hard at making sure that America does not see its war against Terror as a religious war, when in fact the enemy sees it as EXACTLY that. A religious war.

This is , as Bush said, a war against evil. And evil came to Fort Hood in the form of a jihadi who was in fact possessed by Allah.For me this incident has shades of the movie “Exorcist.”

And Good has triumphed, even though so many innocents died.
This truth of which we speak needs to me shared with America as much as possible.America needs to know of the evil which it faces, at long last. No matter what the left want to make of it.

The religious practice of the Mujihad needs to be explained to every one. There is an inner prayer designed to connect one with the self righteous energy of Allah, who literally takes over the body and mind of the jihadine.That’s what happened here.A kind of Muslim spiritual possession.Hasan was not insane, or deranged. He was just fired up on his prayers and energized.He was executing a religious ritual which he believed would open the gates of heaven for him.Hasan expected to be killed so that he and his victims would end up basking in the radiance of Allah, which is the spiritual goal of the Mujahid. That is what makes this incident religious genocide. THIS IS A WAR CRIME.No different that the burning of the Jews by Hitler.

The MSM will not properly inform the public about this religious practice of jihadism.It would no longer be a war on terror,The terrorists could no longer be redefined as “criminals” by Obama , who should be Mirandized with the benefits of due process that Bush had made sure to remove, as deserved. These secret jihadist teachings now flourish on US soil, and within our own military. They must be rooted out and utterly destroyed.

Watch the video...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tCAffMSWSzY

he is far more damaging than you ever thought. Africans, stupid, backward, illiterate Africans are calling him Americas Ruler, not President for a reason. Its not about American politics and procedure, , , but whats contained in the Koran. Thus the title Ruler

They recognize what we do not understand nor see, as we are Americans and have never been up against Islam. It is here, LIVE and in the White House today!!!!

SO what do you expect to hear?

Report: Hasan attended same radical mosque as 9/11 hijackers
Hotair ^ | 11/7/2009 | Allahpundit

Posted on Saturday, November 07, 2009 7:53:37 PM by SeekAndFind

And so a personnel file already teeming with red flags gets another giant one. If you’re wondering how a British newspaper managed to track down this information when the U.S. military apparently couldn’t, you’re not alone. There’s no question now that we need congressional hearings into how the army missed the warning signs on Hasan, especially given the suspicions as to why they might have looked the other way. Chop chop, Messrs. Boehner and Cantor.

Hasan, the sole suspect in the massacre of 13 fellow US soldiers in Texas, attended the controversial Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Great Falls, Virginia, in 2001 at the same time as two of the September 11 terrorists, The Sunday Telegraph has learnt. His mother’s funeral was held there in May that year.

The preacher at the time was Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born Yemeni scholar who was banned from addressing a meeting in London by video link in August because he is accused of supporting attacks on British troops and backing terrorist organisations.

The above is an excerpt. For the full oped:

Keep digging and you will find out that Nidal Hassan was an advisor to Barack Obama.

You're trying to make that sould like he was a direct advisor. Sorry, not true. He worked on a team that created a report for Homeland Security. This was part of the Bush/nobama transition. I really hate to defend this murdering Islamic terrorist, but he was not, "an advisor to Barack Obama."

Source:

In 2008 The George Washington University Homeland Security Institute (HSPI) initiated a transition task force to help craft homeland security policies during Obama’s transition period. In May of 2009 HSPI finished its report titled, “Thinking Anew-Security Priorities for the Next Administration.” One of the members of this Obama transition project was none other than the Muslim murderer Nidal Hassan.

Nidal is listed in Appendix C, Page 29 of the HSPI report as having served as a “Task Force Event Participant,” in his position with the Uniformed Services University School of Medicine.
