Obama Unable to Utter Two Simple Words – Islamic Terrorism

November 11, 2009

You don't have to be the TV police detective whiz Lieutenant Columbo to put the evidence together and conclude that Hasan was driven by violent jihadist ideology.

President Obama paid tribute yesterday to the victims of the Fort Hood massacre.  Obama knows how to deliver a powerfully emotional speech and he did so on this occasion. But, as Lt. Col. Ralph Peters said on “The Factor” last night,  the speech was full of boilerplate and it sidestepped the fact that the shooting was an act of Islamic terrorism.

The alleged shooter, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, was not some impulsive, stressed-out soldier who suddenly snapped. While he may not have been on al Qaeda’s payroll, he bought its ideology and executed it with deadly effect. He reportedly shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ (the jihadist mantra) right before starting his rampage.

Well before the massacre at Fort Hood, Hasan had been keeping in touch with his former radical imam, Anwar al-Awlaki, after the latter fled to Yemen and became a recruiter for al Qaeda. Al-Awlaki returned the favor, praising Nidal Hasan as a hero for killing the thirteen unarmed people at Fort Hood.

There were other clear warning signs of Hasan’s jihadist tendencies that the Army chose to ignore. For example, Hasan was reported to have posted a statement on the Internet equating suicide bombers with a U.S.  soldier who sacrificed himself to save his fellow soldiers.

And, according to Colonel Terry Lee (Retired,) a former coworker who served with Hasan at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC., Hasan also praised the murder of two U.S. soldiers who were killed outside of a recruitment center in Little Rock, Arkansas:

This is what Muslims should do, stand up to the aggressors.  Maybe we should have more of these, people should strap bombs on themselves and go into Times Square.

You don’t have to be the TV police detective whiz Lieutenant Columbo to put these and other similar pieces of evidence together and conclude that Hasan was driven by violent jihadist ideology.  Yet the mainstream press, like the Obama administration, has ignored or played down these facts and still avoid the truth.  Indeed, they prefer political correctness to the truth. Things have gotten so absurd that Chris Matthews even asked the other night whether it was a crime for Hasan to get in touch with al Qaeda. How about we start with the real possibility of giving aid or comfort to the enemy – i.e., treason?

The Obama administration has tied itself up in such politically correct knots that it has decided it won’t ever use the phrase “war on terror” or the term “jihad” in the context of describing Islamic-inspired violence against non-believers.

I guess that when Hasan shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’, with a gun ready to fire, he was just saying his daily prayers and the gun happened to go off.

Wake up, folks.  The Islamic terrorist jihad is coming back to our shores big time.  We are in a continuing war against terror, not a spurt of criminally insane acts.

    I believe you should substitute “Unwilling” for “Unable” in your headline.

    Mr. Klein,

    What to do? It is the greatest open secret in the world, that Islam is not what its promoters claim it to be. Everyone knows Islam is a threat, hence, the massive effort to appease, and placate it. It is lethal, and everyone knows it, but will not say otherwise. The reason is fear.

    The key lies is the scuttling of multiculturalism, and an aggressive effort to take back the incubators and trainubg centers of the left, the schools and universities.

    Additionally, immigration restrictionism must be implemented before the demographic fail safe threshold is exceeded. If not, liberty will perish from the earth, as President Lincoln so eloquently put it.

    For Europe, the die is already cast, an EU tyranny is now ready to march like Hitler into Poland for the cause of multiculturalism and Islamic hegemony. China is watching, and we know that they veiw our dilemma, our needlessly self imposed immolation, as a sign that a new world order is on the horizon that includes a third-worlded, polyglot failed America.

    It’s going to get ugly.

      we must quit appeasing and trying to work things out with them.
      They are criminals in our land, killing, sneakily breaking our laws,
      and threatening to ruin our country.

      We should start attacking them. Not appeasing them.
      Being nice to Islamic terrorists, or any terrorist, will never work.

      I get so sick of politicians and others speaking with forked tongue,
      and fearful of saying something that might upset the Muslims.
      Heck, Go ahead and upset them.
      Then sue them.
      Then put them into jail.
      Then export them.

      Cut out all this stupid “niceness.”

    His script writer makes no money for simple statements. They must be convoluted to be justified, not coherent.

    Wake up America!! When, or more importantly, how to wake up others?

    Considering the fact that Obama and the Democratic Party are also terrorizing us by their dictatorial and tyrannical agenda and accomplishments and their jihad against our Constitution is as insidious and noteworthy as the Islamic jihad against all of us infidels.

    Same goal, different package.

    Mr. Klein,

    I don’t personally know the POTUS, but I suspect he didn’t use those words because of consequeses of using them. Check out the tragic story at the link below.

      Yeah, good one. Nice try. Update. The accused has a homosexual amatuer porn website and has since changed his story. He states that the priest attempted to sexually assault him. Local investigators are leaning towards the possibilty that this attack was motivated because the accused propositioned the priest for sex, and he declined.

    What are all these progressive multicult media talking heads going to say after the next massacre?

    How will the CNNites explain away a suicide bomber on American soil?

    Yes, it is going to get ugly.

    From the Qur’an 48:29:

    “Muhammad is Allah’s Apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another.”

    And, Qur’an 9:29:

    “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, even if they are of the People of the Book (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizya with the willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”

    And this is a religion of peace? Could have fooled me!!

    Obama cannot admit that an act of “terrorism” occurred on his watch. That is, an act of “Islamic” terrorism I mean. Run-of-the-mill “terror” from right-wing psychopaths will continue to earn the term “terrorism”. Perhaps someone knows the answer to this question: did leftists ever refer to the “terrorism” in Communist Russia or Communist China or Communist Cuba by this word? Or did the term “revolution” suffice to encompass the barbaric treatment and annihilation of human beings who did not succumb to the tyrants willingly? Do leftists only reserve the use of the word “terror” when it is applied to a right-wing extremist?
