It seems like we’re learning more and more about Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan with every passing moment. For a part-timer like myself, it’s difficult to reconcile everything as it comes out. Thankfully, there are people like Pamela Geller, who penned a fantastic commentary for Andrew Breitbart’s BigGovernment blog. Here’s an excerpt:
Obama doesn’t want us to jump to the conclusion that the shootings at Fort Hood were a terrorist attack by an Islamic jihadist, Major Nidal Hasan. Obama would rather we forgot that Nidal Hasan screamed “Allah akbar” before he mowed down scores of patriotic Americans and gave away Qurans with his business card before his act of jihad. Hasan also gave his landlord two week’s notice – showing that he planned this for a long time. He didn’t just snap.
Obama wants us to ignore that Hasan went to a mosque where a jihadist imam preached hatred of America. The same imam was “spiritual adviser” for three of the 9/11 hijackers who attacked America on Sept 11, 2001. Obama would rather we didn’t know that when Hasan was asked his nationality, he didn’t identify himself as an American, but as a Palestinian. Obama doesn’t want us to rush to judgment about how Hasan spoke approvingly of the shooting death by an Islamic jihad terrorist of a Little Rock Army recruiter in June. Obama doesn’t us to draw any conclusions from how Hasan reportedly was heard saying, “maybe people should strap bombs on themselves and go to Times Square.”
But Obama says, don’t rush to judgment.
The President was not so circumspect when he spoke out about Professor Henry Louis Gates’ arrest by Cambridge, Massachusetts police Sgt. James Crowley. Obama incited hatred on national television, rushing to judgment against a white cop who was just doing his job. Obama tried to incite racial division and wrongly criticized the police during a news conference: “But I think it’s fair to say, No. 1, any of us would be pretty angry; No. 2, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home; and, No. 3 … that there’s a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately.” The incident, Obama said, showed “how race remains a factor in this society.”
A few days later, after an avalanche of criticism, Obama backtracked: “In my choice of words,” he said, “I unfortunately, I think, gave an impression that I was maligning the Cambridge Police Department or Crowley specifically.” But he did not apologize for his rush to judgment.
Apparently jumping to conclusions is wrong only when it leads to the conclusion that there has been another Islamic terror attack on American soil.
Of course, when it comes to information on radical Islam and Jihad From Within right here in the United States, there are two Web resources which I turn to every single time: Geller’s Atlas Shrugs and Robert Spencer’s JihadWatch. For the sake of ensuring that we all know as much as possible about Maj. Hasan and others like him–not to mention the effect that rampant, reckless political correctness had in bringing this attack about–here are a number of headlines from those two sites:
