Fort Hood Murderer Is A Devout Muslim

From those defenders of the faith at the Washington Post (partners with Newsweek):

Suspect, devout Muslim from Va., wanted Army discharge, aunt said

By Mary Pat Flaherty, William Wan, Derek Kravitz and Christian Davenport
Friday, November 6, 2009

He prayed every day at the Muslim Community Center in Silver Spring, a devout Muslim who, despite asking to be discharged from the U.S. Army, was on the eve of his first deployment to war. Yesterday, authorities said Maj. Nidal M. Hasan, a 39-year-old Arlington-born psychiatrist, shot and killed 13 people at Fort Hood, Tex.

In an interview, his aunt, Noel Hasan of Falls Church, said he had endured name-calling and harassment about his Muslim faith for years after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and had sought for several years to be discharged from the military.

"I know what that is like," she said. "Some people can take it, and some cannot. He had listened to all of that, and he wanted out of the military, and they would not let him leave even after he offered to repay" for his medical training

As authorities scrambled to figure out what happened at Fort Hood, a hazy and contradictory picture emerged of this son of Palestinian immigrants, a man who received his medical training from the military and spent his career in the Army, yet allegedly turned so violently against his uniformed colleagues

The Associated Press reported that Hasan attracted the attention of law enforcement authorities in recent months after an Internet posting under the screen name "NidalHasan" compared Islamic suicide bombers to Japanese kamikaze pilots. "To say that this soldier committed suicide is inappropriate," the posting read. "It’s more appropriate to say he is a brave hero that sacrificed his life for a more noble cause."

Hasan steered clear of female colleagues, co-workers said. Despite his devout religious practices, he listed himself in Army records as having no religious preference.

A longtime Walter Reed colleague who referred patients to psychiatrists said co-workers avoided sending service members to Hasan because of his unusual manner and solitary work habits

He had been affected by the physical and mental injuries he saw while working as a psychiatrist at Walter Reed for nearly eight years, according to his aunt. "He must have snapped," Noel Hasan said. "They ignored him. It was not hard to know when he was upset. He was not a fighter, even as a child and young man. But when he became upset, his face turns red." She said Hasan had consulted with a lawyer about getting out of the service…

The psychiatrist once said that "Muslims should stand up and fight against the aggressor" and that the United States shouldn’t be fighting the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in the first place, according to an interview with Col. Terry Lee, a co-worker, on Fox News.

Hasan’s father, Malik, immigrated to the United States at age 16 from a Palestinian village in the West Bank, an area controlled by Jordan until 1967 but occupied by Israel since then…

Hasan was "like my sons," his aunt said, spending holidays and free time at her house. At the Muslim Community Center, Hasan stood out because he would sometimes show up in Army fatigues, said Faizul Khan, the former imam there.

"He came to mosque one or two times to see if there were any suitable girls to marry," Khan said. "I don’t think he ever had a match, because he had too many conditions. He wanted a girl who was very religious, prays five times a day."

A co-worker at Walter Reed said Hasan would not allow his photo to be taken with female co-workers, which became an issue during Christmas season when employees often took group photos. Co-workers would find a solo photo of Hasan and post it on the bulletin board without his permission.

Lee told Fox News that Hasan "was hoping that President Obama would pull troops out. . . . When things weren’t going that way, he became more agitated, more frustrated with the conflicts over there. . . . He made his views well known about how he felt about the U.S. involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan."

And when he talked about fighting "the aggressor," he said that his fellow soldiers "should stand up and help the armed forces in Iraq and in Afghanistan," Lee said

This is the spin from our media masters. Mr. Hasan is the real victim.

He certainly wasn’t a Muslim terrorist. No way.

And never mind his passing out of Korans before his shooting spree, and his shouts of “Ali Akbar!” as he was killing our soldiers.

But thank goodness we are making our military ‘more diverse.’ Imagine how limited any armed forces are without a healthy sprinkling of the enemy within their ranks.

Diversity is our strength.

    So this guy was a devout muslim – and? He obviously had deep seated mental issues. What’s the answer here? Eject all muslims from the military? Why stop there? How about ejecting them from the country? Obama and his henchmen are busy destroying the rest of the constitution – why shouldn’t we do away with that whole pesky freedom of religion tangent?

    The issue is that people are dead. I’ll bet none of them gave a rat’s rear end what the religion was of the guy pulling the trigger.

    • retire05 says:

      Yeah, no one is really concerned that a home grown terrorist managed to inflitrate our military and kill 13 and wound another 29 and just happened to be the same faith of the scum that murdered almost 3,000 on 9-11-2001.

      Now, all the talk will be how Hasan was really a victim, written by clueless apologists who have no idea of how the military functions. Hasan was an officer, a MAJOR, and you can bet that if he was harrassed by anyone of lesser rank, that person would have been keelhauled and strung from the yardarm after a bunch of politically correct JAG officers got done with him.

      But noooo, instead CAIR (which should be KAIR-killing American Infidels regularly) was already whining on Fox this AM how Muslims are persecuted in the U.S.

      And let’s not forget that Hasan had no problem taking a 1/2 million dollar education from U.S. taxpayers, but when it came to being deployed where his fellow Muslims were being killed, he didn’t want to go. So instead, he tried to take out as many soldiers who were being deployed as he could, shooting over forty of them. Guess he wanted to save his fellow jihadists the trouble of trying to kill our soldiers in Iraq.

      There is a cancer in our nation and it is radical Islam. And we stand by in politically correct brainwashed fashion, and ignore the compounds being built in Virginia and Mississippi by radical Islam. We ignore that radical Imams are being allowed to enter our prisons and recruite new jihadists.

      We ignore this at our own peril.

      Perhaps it is time to allow our military to carry weapons everywhere they go like the Israeli army does.

    Hmmm. Sounds like profiling. No wonder The True God makes secularists so nervous.

  3. wardmama4 says:

    this son of Palestinian immigrants

    Well, well, well – Now we know where his perchance for violence came from – perhaps one truly honest and enterprising and real journalist will investigate enough to find out that young Nidal spent some time in Palestine learning the ways of the terrorist.

    This man was a danger to all Americans around him – and that the Army did nothing indicates either a serious lack of concern or that this vile man hid it – and only now are his family attempting to CY(H)A.

    I hope he lives to stand trial – and like Akbar receives a death sentence and then sits on death row for a long time (since it’s been 44 years since the military executed anyone) – this is one ‘special interest group’ that living in prison is indeed a fate worse than death.

  4. GetBackJack says:

    So … Malik killed our people, yet our people did not kill him. How ironic.

    Malik pulled the rigger, but Political Correctness loaded his guns. And fear of PC reprisals from the Command Staff and their political superiors in the press and Administrations (x4) and Congress aimed his pistols for him.

    We absolutely must clean out Congress of every member, and every staffer and every political operative in both Parties.

  5. rocketman says:

    As a Commissioned Officer, he could have resigned!!

    • Right of the People says:

      He couldn’t resign until his commitment for his schooling was up. He began as an enlisted man, went to OCS then got his BS degree then the Army paid for his medical school. In one article I read, he’d offered to pay back for his schooling but that’s not how it’s done.

      I turned down and appointment to West Point for the same reasons, I would have had to give the Army 5 years after I graduated (1 for prep-school to prepare me for the Point and 4 more for the time there). It was a ten year commitment that as an 18 year old I wasn’t prepared to make. Plus if I had taken them up on it and flunked out, I still would have had to serve my original 3 year enlistment in it entirety. Reflecting back now with 20/20 vision, I wish I had taken them up on it as earning my degree later was a bitch while working full time.

    Someone just pointed out that this wasnt a “terrorist act”, because he wasnt a member of Al Qaida or any such group. He wasn’t!! He is a MUSLIM! His personal attack on western people was his act of personal Jihad, and he felt that killing infidels was justified, as any devout Muslim will agree to.

    I find it absolutely appalling that our media cannot or will not tell it like it is. “We have no idea why he did this”?? I do! He is a MUSLIM!! That’s what devout Muslims do! Kill infidels wherever they find them! I am surprised it took him so long, and I dont doubt for a minute that he wont be the last either.

    He was never an American Soldier. He was a festering boil disguised as a Soldier, and the infected pus that is his mind decided it was time to kill infidels and hopefully die in the process. So to all of you moron liberal trolls who are too cowardly to call him what he is…a MUSLIM MURDERER, keep that thought while more of people like him murder in the name of Allah……

    He did what muslims do so well…gain the trust of his fellow soldiers, lie about his true feelings, and then open fire on unarmed innocents like the slime ball coward that his “religion” creates. I am sure that John Murtha is smiling right now…..thinking our guys got what they deserved.

    He didnt kill because of stress….or any mental defect. He killed because it was his call to Jihad, and he did it in the name of a God that promotes the murder of unarmed people to gain his glory. Hasan is a traitor, and a murderer, but most of all, bottom line, he is a MUSLIM!!! And THAT IS WHY HE DID IT!!!!!

  7. rocketman says:

    I find it interest that no one is reporting what type of weapon this jerk used. I’ve heard he used a pistol. How many times did he have to re-load?? Didn’t anyone try to take him down while he was re-loading? Someone just doesn’t make sense here

    • canary says:

      He had a revolver and semi-automatic pistol. I assume with clips. There

      An off duty female officer shot him 4 times and he shot her in the process. I hope she doesn’t get in trouble. I guess there were no MP’s close by.

  8. proreason says:

    How many of these Muslim nutters have serious sexual issues underlying and reinforcing their religious brainwashing?

    The 9/11 conspirators used to go to strip bars together in Florida. Not so strange for American men, who have many outlets when the frustration level is high enough. But isn’t that strictly prohibeted in Islam? Were the pole dancers wearing burka’s?

    How many of of the nutters are forced into homosexuality because of their religious prohibitions?

    How much of the seething rage is really about feeble mullahs with multiple wives?

  9. Petronius says:

    “Hasan was a lifelong Muslim. … Hasan listed his birthplace as Arlington, Va., but his nationality as Palestinian, Khan said.”

    And he reportedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” as he opened fire on his comrades.


    Hasan is just a part of the Islamic diaspora, of the ongoing peaceful invasion.

    So how’s all that diversity working out for you, America?

    Are we celebrating yet?

    Yes, let’s celebrate our diversity. Let’s just keep repeating that familiar mantra: Diversityisastrength, diversityisastrength, diversityisastrength, diversityisastrength.

    How many loyal Americans must die before we figure out that the Liberal programs of multiculturalism and open borders are weapons aimed at the destruction of the West?

    How many waves of Islamic jihadists, how many other unassimilable tribes, how many refugees driven from their own homelands by civil wars over ethnic divisions –– how many millions, how many tens of millions must we welcome to our shores, bringing their religion-of-peace, their foreign allegiances, their cultures and languages, their colonies and settlements, and their envy and hatred for all things Western?

    Instead of blaming this new nation-divider –– this Liberal, anti-Western, ethnic-cleansing force called multiculturalism –– shall we blame it all on Bush instead?

    Yes, indeed! Let us repeat our second mantra: Bushdidit, Bushdidit, Bushdidit, Bushdidit.

    There, I’m sure we all feel better now.

    Yes, the Liberal Death Wish is sapping the strength out of Western Civilization. Liberal vampires are sucking the marrow right out of the bones of America.

    No more Unum, but lots of Pluribus. Social fragmentation. Identity politics. Ethnic strife. Balkanization. The Fort Hood Massacre. The Wichita Massacre. Knoxville. Richmond. Virginia Tech. 9-11. Man-made disasters. Thousands of “isolated incidents.” John Muhammad the Beltway Sniper. The wail of sirens. The sounds of gunfire in the night. The sounds of women screaming in the night. Affirmative action. Hate laws. Gated communities. Home schooling. Overcrowded emergency rooms. Stockpiles of ammo and Kruggerrands. Multi-lingual cable television channels. Arabic, Urdu, Farsi, Aymara, Quechua, Hindi, and Tamil. Ramadan, Ashura, Kwanza, and Cinco de Mayo. Voodoo and the Abubakar As-Saddique Islamic Center. Omar Qaddafi, Keith Ellison, and Barrack Hussein Obama. Let it all fall apart. Let it splinter and unravel.

    Bring it on. We want more Muslims. Give us all of Somalia. And Chechnya as well. Oh yeah, and Pakistan. We gotta have all of Pakistan. And Bangladesh. We’re all from the Ganges now.

    Because we’re so different from all those other countries that are fragmenting under the strains of immigration and ethnic strife. Conflicts in places like Britain, Canada, Mexico, France, Spain, Belgium, Italy, Norway, Switzerland –– yes, little Switzerland! –– Russia, Serbia-Kosovo, Bosnia Herzogovina, Palestine, Lebanon, Iraq, Kurdistan, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Liberia, Sudan, Rwanda, Kenya, Mali, Chad, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Tibetan China, India, the Philippines, Hawaii, California, etc., etc., etc. We’re better than all of them. That stuff will never happen here. Not in America. Yes, we’re different from all the rest. Ignore them. Forget about history.

    And behold the New America that our Liberal masters have created for us! An America that is multicultural, over-crowded, surly, rude, nasty, and glum. A balkanized collection of ethnics sharing a flagging economy, increasingly split between haves and have-nots, between producers and moochers, between whites and nonwhites, between capitalists and Marxists, between old and young, natives and immigrants.

    Down to the Banana Republics, down to the tropical sun
    Go the expatriated Americans, hoping to find some fun.
    Some of them go for the sailing, caught by the lure of the sea
    Tryin’ to find what is ailing, livin’ in the land of the free.

    Yes, celebrate! Fort Hood! Memorable. Enough to pale all else. Let us go then, you and I, when the evening is spread out against the sky, and see this etherized patient. Let us go and make our visit.

    So thank you, Liberals. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank you for all you do and all that you have done. Ain’t Liberalism grand? Praise be to Kali, goddess of death and destruction. You’re going to love your future, New America. No more Unum, but plenty of Pluribus. You ain’t seen nothin yet. I guarantee it.

    Deus vult!

    • proreason says:

      Great post Petronius!

      And isn’t it stange how muticulturalism meshes so beautiful with the progressive agenda, and their new-found power? Why it’s almost like it was dialed up for a Muslim / Christian / Athiest, Arab / Indonesian / American, Black / White / Brown / Yellow, Straight / Bi fuhrer.

      The world is full of so many astonishing coincidences.

  10. proreason says:

    Dear Liberal Poster and Military Hater,

    Thanks for your clear proof that when a non-Muslim commits a heinous crime, religion is almost never a factor, whereas for Muslims, it is almost always the key factor.

    Very compelling argument.

  11. Rusty Shackleford says:

    Posting under a new name, because the “Powers that Be”, here, feel the need to censor anyone who disagrees with their point of view.

    Steve doesn’t do that unless you say something particularly glaring or threatening. It’s his site and he can do as he pleases with it. However, be aware that he is conscious of the potential for arguments to get out of hand and he will delete provocative language which I suspect, is what you did.

    … man, I would expect this kind of behavior from… oh, I dunno… China? Iran? Welcome to America, folks… land of the free, so long as you agree with us…

    Sad to say that you cannot understand that perhaps it’s not your point of view but how you presented it.


    I have to shake my head at the comments listed here… how so many of you have immediately assumed that, because this guy was Muslim… and because there is an alleged report that this guy yelled ‘Allahu Akbar’ (God is Great) before he began shooting… that he did this BECAUSE he’s a Muslim… and that he had some sort of religious agenda…

    Don’t know too many people who are not muslim who yell such things. None, in fact. And every homicide-bomber who’s quoted by eyewitnesses is reported to say something similar before they explode, as do all radical muslim whackos when they are at the height of their “jihad”.

    Clue number one. His name
    Clue number two: His self-proclaimed origins of Palestine where in fact he was not born there.
    Clue number three: His handing out of korans the day of the shooting and giving away his furniture to anyone who would take it
    Clue number four: His having to be counseled (disciplined) while in residency for trying to get military members to convert to islam

    There’s more but you get my point.

    Are y’all retarded? Ad hominem

    Why is it that you assume that anyone who is Muslim, and commits a crime, MUST be a terrorist?? And that it MUST be related to his religion??

    Well, simply put, the koran tells all muslims that if they want to be the best muslims must kill anyone who is not a muslim…and anyone who mocks muslim religion and/or the koran and or mohammed etc. Doing the math, it’s like the 1950’s in the South where the white neighborhood majority doesn’t actually kill anyone who’s black…but they don’t necessarily feel obligated to tell the police who did, either. Just as happy to let others do the dirty work.

    On another side of it, islam is a major clash with our system of laws. For lack of a better term, the judeo-christian ethic(which actually goes back far before the two religions) is what this nation is founded upon and the blueprint for our system of laws. They, the muslims, prefer their own system of laws and want to ignore those of our land.

    What evidence do you have that this was inspired by his religion? Answer? None… except your own racist (and perhaps religious?) beliefs.

    See above

    Now… what religious excuse are you going to tack on to Jason Rodriguez? You know… the guy who just shot up an apartment complex in Orlando today…

    Answer: None, because it’s not pertinent to that case, YOU brought it up, not anyone here. So I submit for the record that it is you who is the racist.

    … or Jiverly Wong, who killed 11 people in New York in April…
    … Michael McLendon who killed 10 people in Alabama in March…
    … Steven Kazmierczak who killed 5 students in Illinois in 2008…
    … Robert Hawkins who killed 8 people in a mall in Nebraska in 2007…
    … or perhaps Cho Seung-Hui who killed 32 people at Virginia Tech in 2007…

    Did any of them yell “Allah akbar” when they were pulling the trigger?

    You’re pathetic… the lot of you.

    Ad hominem argument. Going after the person, not the information. So, for the record and in retaliation, I can play that game too.

    “You’re a big fat moron with no sense who probably lives in the basement of his mother’s house” So there, nyahhh. :-p

    See how effective that is?

    And a little recommendation, learn some things before you come here. You lack experience and depth. You seem to be the typical person who likes to incite a discussion based solely on emotional parameters. I don’t care how you feel. Really, I don’t. But if you’re going to express your frustration, you might find some websites or news reports to back up what you think are “allegations”. The coming days will be very interesting because this loser is still alive. He will face the UCMJ and that will also be a very highly reported court-martial. One that Obama cannot interfere with.

    Did you ever serve in the military? I pretty much doubt it. I only mention it because you plainly are on the side of the guy who shot a bunch of people, who was clearly a muslim and who clearly gave warning signs prior to yesterday. Political correctness prevented him from being investigated any more than they did. I was in the military for a long time and have seen just how that works. Have you?

  12. BillK says:

    Funny how the American media has downplayed his comments, but the UK Telegraph went with them as the headline:

    Fort Hood shooting: gunman shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ before opening fire

    Soldiers who witnessed the shooting rampage that killed 13 people at Fort Hood military base in Texas have reported that gunman Major Nidal Malik Hasan shouted “Allahu Akbar” – God is great – before opening fire.

    General Robert Cone, the base commander, said officials had not yet confirmed that the suspected gunman made the comment before the rampage which left 30 people wounded, including Hasan. …


    Hmmm, now who else uttered those words before committing mass murder?

    Also, this little tidbit:

    On a form filled out by those seeking spouses through a program at the mosque, Hasan listed his birthplace as Arlington, Virginia, but his nationality as Palestinian, Khan said.

    “I don’t know why he listed Palestinian,” Mr Khan said, “He was not born in Palestine.”

    • proreason says:

      Maybe the guy who pissed him off by giving him incorrect change was an eskimo bartender named Al Ahuak.

      Makes sense no? It certainly is more reasonable than rash assumptions that the good citizen was a jihadist.

      We’ll see if my theory is correct tomorrow in the NY Times.

  13. canary says:

    To the murder sympathizer who refers to this as ‘a crime’.

    This muslim (they can in every color) sworn to do no harm, could have just done as he was ordered and gone to Afganistan and shot 4 dozen Americans.

    Nope! He committed his terrorist act in America where he knew idiots like you would defend him.
