Our neo-Muslim President says “don’t jump to conclusions.” I’m sure CAIR suggests the same thing. And our frequently clueless media speculates all sorts of things – all ignorant of the doctrine and teachings of Islam.
For those who haven’t had their head up their butts, the answer is very clear.
Walid Phares, an expert on terrorism and a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, called the shooting "the largest single terror act in America since 9/11."
"What happened at Ft. Hood is not about being frustrated by America's foreign policy or exacting revenge for racial slurs. Nor is it about simply being a Muslim-American serving in the military or about being a member of any faith," he wrote in an opinion piece published by Foxnews.com.
"The murders at Ft. Hood are about the radicalization of individuals by an extremist ideology -- jihadism -- which fuels acts of terror," he said. "The main question we should be asking is when did Hasan become radicalized and who indoctrinated him? Everything else will fall in place once we have these answers. Moreover, this would allow us to detect other potential terror acts that may be in the making."
There is too much evidence of widespread Islamic Jihadist teaching in the US, too much evidence of Nadal’s immersion in Islam, his anger at US policy, his premeditation, and numerous other indications of his radicalization to fall for the “he just snapped” argument and ignore all the rest. If the man just “snapped” – wow – what a great excuse for all the other Jihadi’s who randomly blow people up. Lets just give them their Miranda rights, four weeks of counseling and let them go. Ya, right.
Here’s some more proof for you doubters out there. Nadal worshipped at a mosque led by a radical imam said to be a "spiritual adviser" to three of the hijackers who attacked America on Sept 11, 2001, and had “deep respect” for his teachings.
I don’t mean to pick on the psychiatric profession, but, as my junior high band director used to say as he chastised some collective bad behavior, “if the shoe fits, wear it”, but the most inane excuses for this dude’s behavior have been expressed by shrinks trotted into TV studios. They are not qualified to comment because they haven’t been paying attention to the underlying issues. Many shrinks will tell people exactly what they want to hear – usually that they are innocent of any moral lapse, only human, and are worthy of self love, no matter how badly they behave or no matter what evil doctrine they believe. In fact, I suspect they are right now creating a new name for the Hasan “psychological disorder”: Sudden Jihadi Syndrome. Four weeks of counseling ought to cure it – ya, sure, you betcha. They, like most Americans, are oblivious to what goes on in most Muslim mosques in this country, and the fascist, intolerant teachings that trademark the Islamic movement.
The Muslim teaching of “gross intolerance” is the key to their call to violence and the vile actions of their adherents.
