The Jihadist is Always the Victim: the "Backlash, that Dreaded Backlash!" Who Will Save the Poor Muslims Now?

“It wasn’t his fault: he was “Driven to murder!”

The attackers are really self-defenders. The jihadist is always the victim. “He was harassed for being a Muslim”, you see, “He was mortified by the idea of having to deploy,” his brother said. Poor thing!  From the always treasonous  NYT/ read it here…

Islamic Awakening Forum on Fort Hood shooter: “What a brave mujahid”

Allahu akbar insha Allah he be shaheed, what a brave mujahid

Fort Hood Jihadi, a devout Muslim, had “Palestinian” Parents, Admired Homicide Bombers

The inevitable “backlash“  in the Age….

Video Of Fort Hood Shooter Major Nidal Malik Hasan

Phyllis Chesler:

According to the Washington Post (and cited at JihadWatch):

“Hasan attended the Muslim Community Center in Silver Spring and was ‘very devout,’ according to Faizul Khan, a former imam at the center. Khan said Hasan attended prayers at least once a day, seven days a week, often in his Army fatigues. Khan also said Hasan applied to an annual matrimonial seminar that matches Muslims looking for spouses. ‘I don’t think he ever had a match, because he had too many conditions,’ Khan said.”   Read the complete original version of this item…

From the Daily Mail:

The Virginia-born soldier was…was furious over the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan by U.S. and allied troops to the extent that he was being investigated by military officials as he was about to be deployed to a war zone…Army colleagues said Hasan had fervently expressed his opposition to the war.

Retired Colonel Terry Lee who worked with the major said: ‘He was so outspoken I once said to him, “Look, you got to cool it”.

‘He was reacting with open glee at the death of some soldiers by a suicide bomber. I told him, “You might not agree with this but this is the army and we are here to serve the country.’

Mr Lee said Hasan repeatedly said: ‘Muslims should rise up against the aggressors.’


The evasiveness of media in the immediate wake of the Fort Hood murders is astonishing. The ABC’s Lisa Millar opened her midday report claiming to have “learned quite a lot about the gunman”, then revealed very little of it – apart from that Malik Nadal Hasan had “attracted a lot of harassment because of his last name” and “family background”. This came about, Millar reported, despite Hasan being born and raised in the US. Not mentioned in eight minutes of coverage: Hasan’s faith, which in a case like this is surely of interest. America’s ABC eventually gets around to it, after listing various other biographical details. In descending order of interest to that network:

• Hasan was an “army psychiatrist”
• He’d trained in Maryland
• He didn’t get good reports while assigned to Walter Reed
• He wasn’t married
• No kids
• His parents came from Jordan

Oh, and by the way …

• A cousin describes him as “a pious lifelong Muslim”.

UPDATE. Ed Driscoll’s attack timeline.

UPDATE II. Among responses at Muslim Village:

“12 Criminals Shot Dead In Pre-emptive Strike”

“They are more than criminals they are mass murders who deserve what came to them, best story I’ve read in ages, thanks foe posting it.”

“Attack on criminal organisation kills 12”

Andrew Bolt: US base attacked

The Los Angeles Times, which earlier refused to mention the shooter’s faith, now finds it cannot avoid doing so any longer:

A senior U.S counter-terrorism official said Thursday night that after the shootings, the Army and FBI were looking into whether Hasan, who is Muslim, had previously come to the attention of federal law enforcement officials as the suspected author of inflammatory Internet comments likening suicide bombers to heroic soldiers who give their lives to save others.

This seems to be the comment:

NidalHasan scribbled: There was a grenade thrown amongs a group of American soldiers. One of the soldiers, feeling that it was to late for everyone to flee jumped on the grave with the intention of saving his comrades. Indeed he saved them. He inentionally took his life (suicide) for a noble cause i.e. saving the lives of his soldier. To say that this soldier committed suicide is inappropriate. Its more appropriate to say he is a brave hero that sacrificed his life for a more noble cause. Scholars have paralled this to suicide bombers whose intention, by sacrificing their lives, is to help save Muslims by killing enemy soldiers. If one suicide bomber can kill 100 enemy soldiers because they were caught off guard that would be considered a strategic victory. Their intention is not to die because of some despair. The same can be said for the Kamikazees in Japan. They died (via crashing their planes into ships) to kill the enemies for the homeland. You can call them crazy i you want but their act was not one of suicide that is despised by Islam. So the scholars main point is that “IT SEEMS AS THOUGH YOUR INTENTION IS THE MAIN ISSUE” and Allah (SWT) knows best.

Phyllis again:

Sudden Jihad Syndrome, Personal Jihad Syndrome, call it what you will—these terrible acts should not be psychiatrically diagnosed and excused. At the risk of being called a racist, allow me to suggest that we must connect the dots before it is too late. Islam now=jihad=hate propaganda=9/11=the tragedy at Ft Hood.

That means Islam now, and its followers of all colors and ethnicities, is at war with the entire world, is dreaming of a Caliphate to be achieved through violence. I doubt that Major Hasan is a Sufi Muslim.

Just think: Islam as violent jihad trumped Major Hasan’s Americanization and more important, trumped his training as both a soldier and as a psychiatrist! He is a Trauma expert, specialized to help people who have faced disasters. (Or so I’ve been told). All the brakes failed, no dam could withhold a Jihadist whose time had come.

  1. Tragic as this is, it is peanuts compared to what will happen if Islam becomes dominant in the any country in the West.

    We must continue to our intervention in Afghanistan and Iraq. Then we carry on to another Islamic country. Hopefuilly we will slide to a full scale general war. In such a sitaution, self separation will take place. Muslims woill find it diificult to stay in the West as they will be regarded as the enemy. But for this to happen we must continue to beringf democracy ro Muslim countries.

  2. The annoying thing is that all the signs appear to have been there that this muslim
    was dangerous. Unfortunately, the PC morons shut their eyes and ears – they are the real enemy.

  3. CAIR will sue if dangerous muslims are profiled, & the courts go along with it, awarding damages & sensitivity training.

  4. Mean while in Gaza…Candies are being prepared for distribution, the appropriate street is being selected for renaming, and posters are being printed for distribution to all schools.

    CAIR in the meantime are in marathon meetings trying to figure out how they’re going to pay for his legal defense when they’ve already publicly condemned the incident and the man; their sponsors in Saudi are going to expect no less.

  5. Tragic as this incidence is, the prospect of Islam becoming dominant in any western nation is a catastrophe. Its sad, but we are at war, and casualties are to be expected.

    So we are taking the war to “Islamists” (PC language), in the noble certainty that our expenditure of blood and treasure in Iraq and Afghanistan, will bear fruit. We will take casualties for our efforts, in Iraq or Afghanistan, and worse, from Muslims who have been allowed to live in the West, as this incident shows. We will see infuriating demos by Muslims, against soldiers returning home to Britain, after heroic duties in Iraq or Afghanistan, helping Muslims turn to liberal democracy. But we must persevere to the bitter end.

    Support our effort to bring freedom to Islamic nations. It is the only war we have going at the moment. The reactions so far are, both at home and abroad, are satisfactory.

  6. Hopefully, this will be the wake-up to our politicians on the left & the right that islam is incompatible with our way of life.

    The current attack is reminiscent of the 1915 attack in Broken Hill, when two muslims bravely attacked a picnic train carrying 1200 people, killing two & wounding several more. Muslims were playing their victim cards even then – the grievance theatre with associated rage is nothing new.

    (search broken hill massacre)

  7. Mullah – there were a series of homicides – serial killings – in the late 60’s in the San Franciso Area that were traced to a muslim gang. No body listened then and I will be surprised if the PC brigade could be bothered getting of their bums to really investigate the problem.

  8. The London Times had a story on the Fort Hood SJS.
    This is my comment to the Times:
    Had the Army at Fort Hood not been so politically correct, they might have been alert for SJS or Sudden Jihad Syndrome which is a well known disease that afflicts Muslims and makes them want to kill all infidels in sight.
    “Individual Islamists may appear law-abiding and reasonable, but they are part of a totalitarian movement, and as such, all must be considered potential killers.” “Daniel Pipes] wrote those words days after September 11, 2001, and ha[s] been criticized for them ever since. But an incident on March 3 at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill suggests [he] did not go far enough.”Why would a regular person try to kill a random assortment of students?

    The Times offers some clues:” Muslim army doctor shouted ‘Allahu akbar’ as he shot dead 13″ My compliments to the Times. The American Mainstream Media is too politically correct. There have several such incidents in the US and one in Kuwait typically attributed to “Insanity”.

  9. Wallace,i love your comment but i want to say you than your comment is no more on the site ‘time on line’ i checked and can’t see it anywhere ! Sorry !….They probably removed,i don’t know.

  10. Ways to Defeat Islamic Jihadism

    This is an urgent call to all free people to rise and defeat the Islamic Jihadists who are marching under the banner of the Qur’an to subdue all non-Muslims.

    It is imperative that the values and the way of life of civilized people be protected against the assault of Jihadists’ savagery born from a primitive culture of long ago Arabia. There is nothing to negotiate here. Nothing to compromise, for the Jihadists are on a non-negotiable campaign of Allah. The goal of this mission from Allah is the eradication of just about everything that falls under the rubric of human rights.

    It takes every free human to do his or her share in defeating Jihadism. Below is a partial list of what can be done.

    * You don’t have to take up arms and go around killing the Jihadists. That’s the Jihadists’ way of dealing with us and anyone they don’t approve of. Decent humans value life, even the life of a Jihadist. By contrast, the Jihadists have no compunctions at amputating limbs, stoning, beheading and hanging people even en mass. The brutal mullahs ruling the Islamic Republic of Iran welcomed the new-year by hanging thirteen people, one of them the mother of two young children. We need to dry up their sources of support and beat them in the battle of ideas. We need to show them the fallacy and danger of their pathological belief.

    * Fight to end the deadly practice of political correctness. Truth, only naked truth, can set us free. And freedom is our greatest gift of life. Life without freedom is death disguised as life. Remember Patrick Henry’s cry: Give me liberty or give me death. We must fight for life, for liberty and freedom.

    * Demand that politicians, Islamic apologists, and paid-for media do not abuse freedom by lying about Islam. When these people portray Islam as a religion of peace, they are lying through their teeth. Just take a quick look at Islam’s history as well as what is happening today in the Islamic lands. Islam is not a religion of peace and it has never been. Islam is violent, oppressive, racist, and irrational at its very core. It is treachery for people to present it as otherwise, either out of ignorance or because of their own personal reasons.

    * Challenge your leftist professors and liberals who may be retained by Islamic front organizations(like CAIR) to trumpet Islam’s virtues. Demand transparency from hired lobbyists and the liberal mainstream media. Sadly, a percentage of people in Western Democracies are born alienated. These people seem to a have congenital hatred of their own societies; they ally themselves with any and all people and forces that aim to destroy our cherished way of life, and they live by the motto: the enemy of my enemy is my friend. They eagerly join forces with the Saddam Husseins and Hugo Chavezes of the world.

    * Demand that Islamic literature, including the hate and violence manual called the Qur’an, be purged of all violent and hate spewed toward non-Muslims. Is it too much to ask that non-Muslims not be targeted for hate by the so-called sacred religious text? What kind of religion is this? Religion is supposed to bring people together, and not put them at each others’ throats. The Muslims must be made to understand that and they must reciprocate the tolerance that the non-Muslims voluntarily afford them.

    * Do not allow any special privileges whatsoever granted to Muslims. Demand that all Muslims have their first and foremost loyalty to the United States and its Constitution and not to the Islamic Ummeh, the Qur’an, and the shariah law. Europe is rapidly buckling under the pressure of Islamism. Just a couple of examples: Germany has legalized polygamy to placate Muslim men, Italy is forced to plan separate beaches for Muslim women

    * Demand that none of the barbaric provisions of Islamic sharia be practiced. Just because a woman is born into a Muslim family, that shouldn’t force her to lead a subservient life to a man, for example. All family matters and disputes, without exceptions, must be adjudicated according to the civil laws of the country.

    * A Muslim is, first and foremost, an Ummehist, a citizen of international Islam. So, when a Muslim takes the United States’ Pledge of Allegiance, he is either ignorant of the implications of his pledge or is lying willfully. Sadly enough, taqqiyeh (lying, or dissimulation) is not only condoned, it is recommended to the Muslims in their scripture. Hence, a Muslim can and would lie without any compunctions, whenever it is expedient.

    * Require that the large number of recent arrival Muslims be carefully vetted for their terrorism and Jihadists backgrounds and beliefs. Many recent arrivals from places such as Somalia, Iraq and Pakistan come as refugees and bring with them their pathological anti-American system of belief. It is criminal to admit these refugees without demanding that they completely renounce their allegiance to the hate dogma of Islam. Those diehard devotees of Islam should make any of the eighteen or so Islamic countries home, rather than invade the secular societies and aim to subvert them.

    * Demand that Muslims, without the least reservation, adhere to the provisions of the human rights. Muslims, by belief and practice, are the most blatant violators of human rights. We hardly need to detail here Muslims’ systemic cruel treatment of the unbelievers, women of all persuasions, and any and all minorities across the board. To Muslims, human rights have a different meaning, and its protective provisions are reserved strictly, primarily for Muslim men.

    * Go and talk to Muslims, particularly the young and the better educated, about the horror and the fallacy of a primitive belief that has been handed down to them through an accident of birth. Show them the magnificence of freedom, in all its forms; the indispensability of tolerance for all; and, the futility of clinging to an obsolete hodge-podge of delusional ideology. The onus is clearly on the Muslims to prove the validity, utility, and sanctity of the belief they intend to impose on all of us.

    * As for democracy, our cherished way of life, Muslims have no use for it at all. Muslims believe that Allah’s rule must govern the world in the form of Caliphate: a theocracy. Making mockery of democracy, subverting its working, and ignoring its provisions is a Muslim’s way of falsifying what he already believes to be a sinful and false system of governance invented by the infidels. Reason, if you can, with the Muslims that their belief is an outright rejection of the greatest gift of life: Freedom.

    * Support financially and in every other legal way those individuals and organizations that are fighting the Jihadists’ relentless encroachment. Many European countries are already on the verge of capitulation to the Islamists. The Supreme Guide of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatollah Khamenei, confidently proclaimed recently that Europe will be Islamic in a dozen years. He has good reason to say that. Muslims are forming states within states in much of European towns and cities. In Britain, for instance, non-Muslims are in serious danger entering Muslim neighborhoods.

    In conclusion: Folks, get off your duff. Stop saying, “let George do it.” Neither George nor the “other guy” can do it by themselves. This is a battle for survival that every one of us can help wage. Let’s get on with it before, if not you, then your children and grandchildren end up under the barbaric rule of the Jihadists.

  11. DP111:
    I must take issue with your argument that “we must continue our intervention in Afghanistan and Iraq.” I submit that this is precisely what we should not do. All our brave soldiers should be immediately withdrawn from these stone-age countries before the life of one more is sacrificed on the altar of political correctness. It won’t make any difference if we stay for one year or fifty years, or if we squander the lives of one hundred or one million of our young people; at the end of the day these countries will still be islamic, and hence sworn to destroy everything democratic, tolerant and decent on their road to imposing the world caliphate.
    There are fifty-seven islamic countries, not one of which is a true egalatarian democracy, despite countless efforts and trillions of dollars
    poured into them by western countries. When is the penny going to drop, and the realization dawn that democracy and islam can never coexist? One hopes that these awful people will one day come to their senses and reject the teachings of the great paedophile; still, that’s not our problem. Until that happy day arrives, we must purge our lands of moslems, dismantle their mosques and ensure that the inhabitants of all islamic countries remain therein.
