Major Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood terrorist shouted “Allahu Akbar!” – an Arabic phrase for “God is great!” – before opening fire on his fellow soldiers. Americans are all too familiar with this Arabic phrase, it’s the same war cry that Jihadists all over the world shout before detonating their bombs.
“Six months ago, investigators came across Internet postings, allegedly by Hasan, that indicated sympathy for suicide bombers and empathized with the plight of Muslim civilians killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Friends and acquaintances said Hasan had been increasingly agitated over the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and he reportedly said the U.S. ‘war on terror’ was a ‘war on Muslims.'” – Washington Post.
Let’s review the facts. Nidal Hasan expressed sympathy for suicide bombers, declared the US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan a “war on Muslims,” and he shouted “Allahu Akbar” while he was gunning down American soldiers. I may not be an expert on terrorism, but common sense and the known facts about this case tells me that Hasan was an Islamic terrorist. Nadal’s love for the “religion of peace,” and his hatred for American soldiers drove him to commit atrocity.
“Speaking at the White House, Mr Obama said: ‘We don’t know all the answers yet, and I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts.'”
President Obama is tone deaf to the heartbeat of regular Americans, who are outraged that once again we are the victims of Islamic fanaticism. Obama should have condemned the Islamic fervor that once again has taken American lives, instead of trying to be politically correct.
Obama failed miserably at calming the fears of the American public, the only thing the president accomplished was to furnish ammunition to the right-wing loons who claim that he is a secret Muslim.
If it quacks like a duck, and walks like a duck, guess what folks, it’s a duck. Nidal Hasan is a terrorist, and Barack Obama is a wimp.
