Terrorism Or A Tragic Shooting

This week, we as Americans, have witnessed one of the of the deadliest mass shootings on a U.S. base in the history of this country. This shooting rampage at Fort Hood that killed thirteen people and wounded, as many as 38 this week has sparkle a question among many Americans if this act of violence was an act of terrorism. Most Americans all ready know that it was an act of terrorism, even the ones who deny the shootings because they want to be “politically correct” in their heart of hearts know that it was an act of terrorism, plain and simple. It was not done by a mentally disturbed person. It was done by a man who was indoctrinated with jihad. We all must realize that. Thirteen people were killed (slaughtered) by an act of jihad which we will never hear the White house say.
The gunman, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who was a Palestinian-American and an Army psychiatrist, reportedly shouted "Allahu Akbar!”( As we all know that is Arabic for "god is great!") when he opened fire. That tells us something right there! The military said he was scheduled to deploy to Afghanistan, and family members said he was trying to avoid serving overseas. The government has said that it was not a terrorist attack, but they have not ruled out terrorism in the shooting, but they said the preliminary evidence suggests that it wasn't. Clearly I think it was a terrorist act. Whether he was connected to another group or not makes no difference. It has been very clear and out in the open for years that two of the places for Al Qaeda and other Islamic groups to recruitment were in the U.S. military and in the U.S. prison system. 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." You will never hear those words come from the Obama White House. I’m thankful that we have a man like Walid Phares that is not “political correct” and will tell it like it is!
"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," "The murders at Ft. Hood are about the radicalization of folks by an extremist ideology and a set of beliefs and philosophy called jihadism, which feed these acts of terror. "The main question we should be asking is when did Hasan become indoctrinated and programmed to do what he did? Everything else will fall in place once we have these answers. This not the only terrorist acts that may be in the making as we will see. The shooting will never be ruled an act of terrorism because the Obama administration has made a political calculation to not fight a war on terror. When Obama decided to use "Overseas Contingency Operation" for the "global war on terror he left out the option to call the deadly act what it was. An act of terrorism against this country.
"Had this occurred under the previous administration or any other previous administration, the natural position would have been America is under attack. It would have been a different position than what Obama coins. Now because a strategic decision has been made to disengage the enemy, They're not going to call this act , at Fort Hood, terrorism. Law enforcement officials and the Army have been unwilling and reluctant to rule the shooting an act of terrorism because "they're politically correct." But most Americans know the shooter's motive is clear: it was violent jihad in the name of radical Islam. America needs to awaken from its sleep and its unwillingness to face the issue of fundamentalist Islam in our midst, which is without a shadow of a doubt is the cause of the tragedy in Fort Hood. Some very serious decisions need to be made when it comes to having Muslims protecting our country, as it is impossible to know whether they may be good Americans or foxes in the hen house."
Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan was a very devout and dedicated Muslim, and his impending deployment overseas, which was imminent, was going to put him in a position where he was going to be assisting in killing other Muslims And that's a very big thing for a Muslim to do, not only killing another Muslim but killing on behalf of an infidel or a Christian." We, as Americans must face up to the fact that this was another act of terrorism, just like 911 against our country. We must also face the fact that these acts of terror will continue as long as we have leaders who will not call it what it is: “TERRORISM”
