After Major Nidal Hasan's massacre in Texas Army base, the U.S. media and academia, adamant againt pointing fingers at the ideology of Islam as the motivating factor, are, instead, pointing to "Post-traumatic stress disorder" from the Iraq/Afghan war. Interestingly, Major Hasan never went through the stress...


Major Nidal Hasan
Nidal Hasan, a typical peace-loving Muslim, killed his col-
leagues from post-traumatic stress of Iraq/Afghan
war, without ever going through stress of those wars.
Of course, he shouted "Allahu Akbar" as he killed!

FACT: A lifelong, devout Muslim man murdered over a dozen people last week in cold blood at Fort Hood in Texas, shouting "Allahu akbar!" as he opened fire.

FACT: He had declared his allegiance to Islam on a number of occasions and given many signs of being a stealth jihadi, including links to the 9/11 terrorists and attempts to contact al Qaeda.

FACT: "Post-traumatic stress disorder" is not an excuse for mass murder.

This guy's "stress" was second-hand at most, as he had never served in war. I resent having this very real condition of PTSD giving him any "out" at all. I myself have suffered from PTSD, after a couple of horrendous years that included my mother's death and my son's abduction. Never did I have a single thought of committing mass murder.

The bottom line is that one of Islam's principal tenets is fidelity to other Muslims, regardless of where they live, what they do and how they conduct themselves. Even a Muslim mass murderer is to be supported against any non-Muslim - that is "Islamic extremism," or, rather, just plain old Islam as outlined in the war manual, the Koran, and its various commentaries, and as has been exemplified over the past 1,400 years of Islamist aggression in vast parts of the world.

In other words, "It's the Islam, stupid."

Officials: U.S. Aware of Hasan Efforts to Contact al Qaeda

U.S. intelligence agencies were aware months ago that Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan was attempting to make contact with people associated with al Qaeda, two American officials briefed on classified material in the case told ABC News.

It is not known whether the intelligence agencies informed the Army that one of its officers was seeking to connect with suspected al Qaeda figures, the officials said....
