From Robt. Spencer at FrontPageMag.Com:
"Major Nidal Malik Hasan, a U.S. Army psychiatrist, murdered twelve people and wounded twenty-one inside Fort Hood in Texas yesterday, while, according to eyewitnesses, “shouting something in Arabic while he was shooting.” Investigators are scratching their heads and expressing puzzlement about why he did it. According to NPR, “the motive behind the shootings was not immediately clear, officials said.” The Washington Post agreed: “The motive remains unclear, although some sources reported the suspect is opposed to U.S. involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq and upset about an imminent deployment.” The Huffington Post spun faster, asserting that “there is no concrete reporting as to whether Nidal Malik Hasan was in fact a Muslim or an Arab.”
Yet there was, and what’s more, Major Hasan’s motive was perfectly clear — but it was one that the forces of political correctness and the Islamic advocacy groups in the United States have been working for years to obscure. So it is that now that another major jihad terror attack has taken place on American soil, authorities and the mainstream media are at a loss to explain why it happened – and the abundant evidence that it was a jihad attack is ignored."
The gunman, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, 39, is in custody, unconscious and on a ventilator, after being shot and subdued by local police officers. The same WaPo article went on to point out that
"(Hasan) had been a "very devout" worshiper at the Muslim Community Center in Silver Spring, attending prayers at least once a day, often in his Army fatigues, said Faizul Khan, a former imam there.
"To know something like this happened, I don't know what got into his mind," Khan said. "There was nothing extremist in his questions. He never showed any frustration. . . . He never showed any remorse or wish for vengeance on anybody."
Other evidence may contradict that:
"Federal law enforcement officials have said Maj Hasan had come to their attention at least six months ago because of internet postings that discussed suicide bombings and other threats.
The officials said the postings appeared to have been made by Maj Hasan but they were still trying to confirm that he was the author.
Maj Hasan's cousin Nader Husan said he was happy working for the military but did dread deployment to Iraq."
This tragedy at Ft. Hood may simply be the murderous rage of an unstable religious kook, and not part of an organized terror plot, but a disturbing pattern does emerge.
On June 1st, 2009, in Little Rock, Arkansas, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, a 23-year-old recent convert to Islam, walked into an Army recruiting center, killed one U.S. Soldier and wounded another.
That attack came less than two weeks after the FBI arrested of four "jail house converts" to Islam who were "...plotting to blow up two Bronx synagogues while simultaneously shooting a plane out of the sky..."
Those converts were apparently angry about the deaths of Muslims in Afghanistan. Authorities call this domestic rise in violent Islam "a disturbing trend."
Which is understandable since Islam is the religion of peace.
And it's not simply domestic attacks from Islamists. On March 23rd, 2003, at Camp Pennsylvania in Kuwait, Sgt. Asan Akbar rolled a grenade into each of three tents of sleeping officers and senior NCOs of the 101st Airborne Division. Then he shot the soldiers with an automatic weapon as they fled from their tents. Two of them, a major and a captain, died, and 14 others were injured.
Sgt. Asan Akbar was a recent convert to the religion of peace and angry about the Arab war dead in Iraq.
We May Not Be at War with Islam, but Apparently Its at War with Us.
