What Part of ‘Infidel’ Don’t You Understand?

Major Nidal Malik Hasan

It’s already beginning. Today, the media, liberal and otherwise, and government officials, liberal and conservative, tripped the Light Fantastic on Nidal Malik Hasan’s motives for murdering and wounding more than 40 U.S. Army recruits and employees at Fort Hood, Texas. Newsweek tells us our military may be breaking under the enormous weight of war. Time Magazine says, “Major Nidal Malik Hasan had a front row seat on the brutal toll of war,” and goes on to label the mass murderer a victim of “secondary trauma.”

President Obama’s insensitive and disengaged remarks immediately following the worst terrorist act on American soil since 9-11, went largely unreported by the media, while they scrambled to distance Hasan from domestic and international terrorist organizations. Obama now tells us not to “jump to conclusions.”

Let me get this out up front. I bare absolutely no malice toward Islamic Americans; I have known several lovely Muslim people over the years and have no reason to believe that all members of that faith share Major Hasan’s convictions. But let’s clear up the accountability issue.

In early interviews in the Islamic community after the massacre the New York Times was careful to lets us know that we need to be sensitive to Muslims and blame the Army. “Ultimately it was Brother Nidal’s doing, but the command should be held accountable,” said a local Muslim and former member of the military in a Times interview. “G.I.’s are like any equipment in the Army. When it breaks, those who were in charge of keeping it fit should be held responsible for it.”

Okay, let’s get right to work on that. First, we have to analyze why a guy, American born, educated at taxpayer’s expense, drawing a six-figure income, with a 7th century ideology that advocates unspeakable acts against virtually anyone who doesn’t share those views, was allowed to serve in the American military to begin with. We might find a clue there.

Now lets trot out the corpse of Timothy McVeigh, the last domestic terrorist to wreak havoc on American soil, because the media are sure to bring him up in coming days. McVeigh was not a member of any accepted sect of Christianity. Period. Secondly, he’s dead. He was a religious nut and we fixed the problem. We executed him.

Next, let’s clear up the postal-jihad thing. Who freaking cares what we call it? I suspect this guy was not officially tied to any organized terror plot. He didn’t have to be. The Quran instructs him: “When you encounter the unbelievers, Strike off their heads. Until you have made a wide slaughter among them tie up the remaining captives.” Sura 47.4

Granted, not every Muslim, probably not even most Muslims, ascribe to this literal interpretation of the Quran, but it’s an easy step to conversion, and we know that more than 110 million Muslims worldwide do interpret the Quran literally. About that many are either raised under Sharia law or come to adopt it at some time in their lives. Sharia law is an accepted practice in modern Islam.

This is America. We don’t persecute people for their religious beliefs and we shouldn’t start now. But when one’s convictions lead them to commit acts of war on the United States of America, we must deal quickly and decisively. How many more times are we going to sit by and let political correctness determine our fate, while these Manchurian-like weirdoes are allowed a pass for their religious beliefs?

Last night on the O’Reilly Factor Lt. Colonel Ralph Peters got it right. Nidal Hasan is a terrorist. He expressed his anti-American sentiments long before Fort Hood. The teachings of Islam that he apparently came to embrace didn’t tell him to go out and join a group; they instructed him to kill “infidels.” He killed Americans.

The New York media and Washington will never, it seems, sign up to anything that approaches common sense, but everyday Americans must. We are at war and that war is hotter than any this country has ever engaged in. It is being fought outside any established rules we understand in warfare. The enemy does not hate us because we are Americans; our enemy hates us because we are not Muslim.
