Those moslems are disgusting animals, as they PROVE every hour of every day.

Remember, we had Muslims in the FBI, that refused to investigate other Muslims after 911.

The group that is helping him, The Military Religious Freedom Foundation, has been behind a number of fairly high-profile suits against various military branches ...

They lead the charge in re: the Trijicon scopes with Biblical verses in the SNs.

He knows that there's nothing more that the Army can do, so it's all about the benjamins.

If he were smart he'd get out now. He's a marked man.

Wait. Did you read ALL of what I posted, or just some of it? I think you may have misunderstood me.

Don’t you think the Army’s tolerance of Maj. Hasan’s venomous diatribes was a problem?

Don’t you think the Army should have actively dealt with Hasan BEFORE he started shooting people?

Don’t you think that the Army’s tolerance of Maj. Hasan’s expressed opinions enabled him to do what he did?

Don’t you think that the Army FAILED w/resp to its handling of Maj. Hasan in light of his KNOWN anti-American sentiments?

Don’t you think the Army needs changing w/resp to how militant Muslims in uniform are being handled, and future on-base shootings might be prevented?

See, I think that you and I would answer all of those questions pretty much the same way:

I DO think the Army’s tolerance of Maj. Hasan’s venomous diatribes was a problem.

I DO think the Army should have actively dealt with Hasan BEFORE he started shooting people.

I DO think that the Army’s tolerance of Maj. Hasan’s expressed opinions enabled him to do what he did.

I DO think that the Army FAILED w/resp to its handling of Maj. Hasan in light of his KNOWN anti-American sentiments.

I DO think the Army needs changing w/resp to how militant Muslims in uniform are being handled, and future on-base shootings might be prevented.

I would have expected that you would think likewise about most all of those things. So, do we or don’t we have a shared perspective here, and — if not — where do we differ?

I didn’t think this was legal. I thought that you signed away all your rights when you joined the military, and as long as you are military property, you can’t sue the US government for pain, suffering, physical damage or any other thing. You are pretty much SOL.

I was kinda on his side up until he stated that he felt compelled by his commanding officer to move off base. That person stated he offered many options for him and he opted for off base. Seems more whiny than true.

Might as well build a statue of Judy Tenuta, in honor of "Judy-ism."

Since my name is Judy, I'm all for that. ;-)

I appreciaye your feedback. However, I think you’re misunderstanding the article. This so-called US Soldier is suing our Gov’t. for not stopping the harassment of Muslim soldiers.

IMO, ANY soldier who’s Muslim/converts to Muslim should have their ass booted out of our military, period! But w/ Obamao in charge I’m realistic to know that that will never happen. He doesn’t give a damn about our military which is “why” this kind crap is “allowed”. The f’ing Muslims have more rights here than we do.

I am sick and tired of being told to not be “judgemental;” and that I should “turn the other cheek.”

Well, I have had it up to here with this PC crap!

I am mad as Hell, and I am not going to take it anymore!

Western Civilization has been under near constant attack and warfare FRom Moslems since 624 AD!

The US is at war with Moslems, and has been ever since 1784, when Congress authorized the first “tribute” to the Barbary Pirates.

It took the US until 1815 to settle with that pack of Moslem animals! Does the “Shores of Tripoli” mean anything?

The following article was copied FRom The New Media Journal: http://www.newmediajournal.us/staff/rubolotta/2008/05132008.htm

“Shores of Tripoli
Terrorism Tony Rubolotta
May 13, 2008

The Marine Hymn should remind us that America has a problem with Islam that dates back to the founding of our nation. Before that, Britain, as our “Mother Country”, dealt with the problem of Islamic state sponsored piracy. Either you paid tribute to the Barbary States or they raided and seized your ships and sailors. You could consider the tribute that was paid the maritime version of the jizya, the tax infidels pay to not be molested by Muslims.

The Tripolitan ambassador to London made it clear in a conversation with Thomas Jefferson and John Adams that as Muslims, they had a right and duty to plunder and enslave infidels. That was the only reason they needed to make war. This was in 1786.

The reason to stop making war didn’t arrive until the Barbary States were defeated by the American Navy and Marines in 1805. After the First Barbary War, the United States enjoyed a brief period of safe passage for commercial shipping in the Mediterranean. That changed during the War of 1812 when the Barbary States saw an opportunity to exploit the absence of American naval power in the Mediterranean.

Raids on American shipping resumed until the Second Barbary War. Even then, after agreeing to a peace treaty, the Pasha of Tripoli reneged once the American fleet departed for Tunis. A Muslim’s word to an infidel is merely an expedient dependent upon present circumstances. It took another year and a combined Dutch and English fleet to bombard the Pasha into submission. It took the colonial occupation of North Africa by European states to end Islamic piracy in the Mediterranean, at least until recently.

If anything, Islam has remained true to its founding as a religion designed to motivate and unify caravan raiders (land pirates) under a single leader with a single set of guiding principles. Thievery and murder gained the respect of a religious calling. How could anyone believe that a religion that had remained faithful to its principles for 11 centuries prior to 1786 would deviate two centuries later? The only peace the civilized world has had with Islam has been exacted on the battlefield or by payment of the jizya. Even then, the peace is a temporary interlude before some Islamic leader perceives weakness in his enemy and the opportunity to pursue his Islamic “duty and right” to “plunder and enslave”.

Thanks to political correctness and the Left’s incessant war against the American military, it is unlikely that public school students any where in America have any idea where the phrase “shores of Tripoli” originated or the historical relationship between the United States and Islam. Are we dooming our children to repeating the mistakes of the past by depriving them of this simple lesson? To the Left, American history should be taught as a source of guilt and shame, not virtue and pride. The American military is evil, and anyone leaving this classroom not knowing that is a mentally disturbed warmonger.

In those same classrooms, Islam is just another religion and if it’s a bit wacky or extreme, it’s no different than any other religion, just like Christianity. So let’s be Muslims for a week or two, see how stern and silly it is, and project our disdain for that sternness and silliness on our own religious beliefs. It is an insidious attack on all religions by portraying Muslim believers as the stereotype for all people with deep religious convictions and obedience to religious ritual.

Barbary pirates, air pirates, caravan raiders, suicide bombers and terrorists are the products of religion, any religion. That is the lesson being taught and it is a false one. They are the products of Islam and those Muslims who do not recognize their “duty and right” to “plunder and enslave” are the apostates. Or are they like the Pasha of Tripoli, waiting for their opportunity at redemption?

Tolerating the intolerable, accommodating diversity for the sake of division and omissions of fact from our historical perspective exposes us to a danger the civilized world has known for more than 13 centuries, even if our own experience dates back only two centuries. Is our memory span as a nation that short or shorter?

The shores of Tripoli are still there, long ago washed by American blood. The ignorant and their Leftist mentors would have us drench those shores, or the sands of Iraq, or the hills of Afghanistan, again, and again, and again.”

When one’s religion doesn’t permit them to swear loyalty to their government they have no business serving at all.

I swore to support and defend The Constitution of the United States of America.

I merely tolerate our government.

You were saying ...

Western Civilization has been under near constant attack and warfare FRom Moslems since 624 AD!

Yep, you're right and they're making this the third big push since they first formed back then. This time they may actually "pull it off" ... they're "on a roll" it seems...

See the following from another post of mine. The "Muslim Demographics" shows why the Muslims will be taking over this country in a mere generation or so ... for real ...

And from what I've seen of FReepers, here and on very recent threads... they basically don't believe it and they're not inclined to do anything about it and think it's wrong to do something about it. Just saying that -- "that's the way it is" even here on Free Republic, which you would think would be more discerning of the matter.


That evil and oppressive governmental idealogy of Islam and the way of implementing it by Sharia law is already making inroads right here in this country — the good ole USA. We’re about to see a “takeover” of the U.S. by the evil and oppressive idealogy of the government of Islam (that is aiming for world-wide conquest and has stated that the U.S. is *on its list* to take over...)

And for those people who need some additional facts about what the evil and oppressive governmental idealogy of Islam is doing, look at some of the following.

There’s no question about it... the enemy is *Islam* itself and the evil and oppressive and false idealogy that it perpetrates. Some say the problem is “fascism” (instead of the basic oppressive governmental idealogy of Islam, itself). But, that is to engage in “political correctness” and nothing more... and sidetracks people from the *true enemy* in this war.

In one generation we’ll see, right here in the United States that “Islam” is the enemy and not “fascism”...

Muslim Demographics...

and also, this...

Islam: What the West Needs to Know - FULL LENGTH ENGLISH VERSION
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-871902797772997781

and then, looking at this...

“The Third Jihad” (video - abridged version of film)
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2271522/posts

This is the allowance of “false gods” to take over this nation because of the ignorance of the people of the land in regards to the true God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob...

And so, we see that we’re going to have the “false god of Islam” ruling over the USA and running the USA in just one generation from now.

I guess it is up to those of us who recognize the threat Islam is to the Western World to speak out, then, isn’t it?

And do some of the hard work necessary to preserve America.

I took and oath many years ago to “. . . support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic . . . .”

I am still doing that, and am not willing to stand idly by as my beloved America is destroyed by a bunch of 7th Century religious fanatics!

I will not go down without one Hellofafight!

I am determined that my children and grandchildren live as FRee Americans!

I may be an old man, but I am a determined old man!

Well, while I appreciate your sentiment, and agree from a purist perspective, getting from here to there poses serious issues just as a matter of pragmatism.

First, we have to get everyone on the same page that Islam is NOT — I emphatically repeat — NOT a religion. That’s the first mountain to climb, and a very difficult one.

Second, we have to answer as to why we should treat people who have Islamic ideas differently than we treat people who have communist, fascist, socialist, democratic, or capitalist ideas. Once Islam is successfully excised from the religion category, and brought into its proper realm as a political philosophy with religious overtones, how do we justify excluding Muslims from military service when the ranks do not exclude socialists, communists, capitalists or libertarians??

We may readily acknowledge that the ultimate actualization of some of those philosophical views is antagonistic to the essence of these United States, and we may recognize that the communist in U.S. military uniform serves for a different set of reasons than the libertarian, yet we do not use these as legitimate bases for treating them differently. How would we justify treating a Muslim differently in the context of military service?

Again, I acknowledge, and agree that adherents of philosophies that ultimately would destroy our Constitutional Republic ought to be barred from military service in this country as a matter of sane national self-preservation, but unless we make a dramatic shift and impose that restriction across all antagonistic philosophical lines, we have a civil rights/freedom of thought issue on our hands if we single out Muslims.

If we are to keep Muslims from serving, we must also bar fascists, anarchists, socialists, communists, and other adherents to Constitutionally antagonistic views. But this runs counter to our national ethos.

So, should we really try to accomplish it, and how?
