This has nothing to do with what happened at Fort Hood.

From David Horowitz’s post today we have an elegantly-written, aggressively-argued comment from a writer I hope to see more of in the future:
2009 November 6

Jihadi Columbine: We are all Nidal Malik Hasan?

What Part of “Allahu Akbar” Do You Not Understand?

It is an insult of criminal magnitude, to the intelligence of the American people, that the Media and Military collectively present the Radical Islamic Terrorist Attack at Fort Hood, resulting in the slaughter of American Soldiers and civilians, as anything but what we all know it to be.

Any journalist or Military authority who “needs to study the situation to ascertain motive for the shooting,” needs to be instantly fired, perhaps prosecuted for endangerment of America.

So, Army, you were literally preparing soldiers to send them to fight “Terror,” and you don’t know why the man yelling “Allahu Akbar,” tried to murder a roomful of American Soldiers? I am concerned that you won’t know who to shoot at, when you do get to Afghanistan. Hint…it will be the Muslims shouting “Allahu Akbar.”

We know that Hasan is a radical Muslim Jihadist. A former fellow officer told Shepard Smith, of Fox NEWS, that Nidal had often spoken of the need for Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan to rise up against “American invaders.” The fact that this “little red flag” went unnoticed by anything with a brain-stem in Post-9-11 America defies credibility.

So, the Islamic Cleric who knew him did not notice any “signs of extremism.” The story here is not that Hasan wasn’t, therefore, an extremist, but rather, the American Cleric’s definition of “extremism.”

We are not all Nidal Malik Hasan. Yehuda Bauer said, “Thou shalt not be a perpetrator. Thou shalt not be a victim. And thou shalt never, but never, be a bystander.”

Which one are we going to be, Media and Military, and President Barack Hussein Obama, and Anita Mao Dunn, and you, dear reader, and me? Perpetrator, by harming our Country? Or more likely a victim or bystander? Would we really rather die at the hands of Jihadis among us than speak the truth about the War waged on Americans by Radical Islamic Americans? Can we justify sending soldiers to die on foreign soil, fighting an enemy we are spineless to destroy here, in Texas?

I do not know how to avoid being a victim, because I cannot take up a weapon to defend myself against the next Radical Muslim who decides Allah wants me to die. But, even if it is only with a silly keyboard, I can, at least for now, refuse to be a bystander and be silent about the War.

I am not Nidal Malik Hasan, and Texas was not Columbine, it was the World Trade Centers, it was the Pentagon, it was a field in Pennsylvania. And Nidal Malik Hasan was not a member of the Trench-Coat Mafia – he was just another missionary of the Religion of Peace.
