There will be all sorts of speculation today, the morning after Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan murdered 13 fellow Soldiers and wounded 30 others during the worst mass killing on a US military base.
Amongst the speculations, there will also be a swell of Islamic and Muslim apologists and anti-military/war harpies making excuses for Nidal Hasan, or trying to blame anything other than the hate-filled death cult of Islam for this act of terrorism on US soil.
But that’s what it was.
As Victor David Hanson notes:
While there is sometimes talk of backlash and anti-Muslim hysteria since 9/11, I don’t think the number of Muslims attacked or killed is comparable to the number of non-Muslims killed by Muslims who evoked Islam in some way as a catalyst for their angers. Nor do we see comparable serial Christian, Hindu, or Jewish-inspired attacks either against mosques and Muslims or the policies of the United States government, either by single actors or more active and organized plotters.
Also make sure to read Michelle Malkins outstanding run down on The massacre at Fort Hood and Muslim soldiers with attitude.
While the Army hasn’t officially ascribed a motive to Hasan, the picture from others who were there or had served with Hasan makes it pretty clear that this was an Islamic act of Jihad.
I’ll be offline for most of the the rest of the day. I have a Patriot Guard Riders funeral mission this morning for Marine Lance Corporal Cody Stanley, who was KIA in Afghanistan, in Smithville and Lockhart. There will be many extra heavy hearts on our ride this morning, as many of our riders are from the Killeen Cen-Tex PGR riders, many have served or actively serve at Ft. Hood, and almost all are Veterans who have just tragically lost 13 more brothers and sisters in arms.
I will not tolerate any anti-military screeds in here. So if that’s your intent, take it elsewhere. I’ll delete your comments when I get home later, if necessary.
