Muselmaniacs Throw Hissy Fits BecauseÂ State Rep. Rick Womick Says What Must Be Done:
All Muslims should be ousted from military
I don’t trust one Muslim in our military,” Womick said. “[I]f they truly are a devout Muslim, and follow the Quran and the Sunnah, then I feel threatened because they’re commanded to kill me.”
State Rep. Rick Womick, seen here at the Rutherford County Republican Party Caucus on March 4, 2010, says he is standing by comments he made Friday that Muslims should be banned from serving in the US military.
MURFREESBORO â€” Local and national Muslims called for state officials Saturday to rebuke state Rep. Rick Womick for remarks he made that all Muslims be removed from the U.S. military.
No Free Speech For You, Infidel:
At least one local Muslim, Saleh Sbenaty of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, went further, stating:
” … he needs to be impeached immediately.”
Womick, though, stood by his comments and offered no apology when contacted by The DNJ.
“Who are we at war with?” Womick said. “We are at war with al-Qaeda and the Taliban, who are Muslims. It’s a Catch-22. They are not allowed to kill their fellow Muslims, we’re at war with Muslims. The only solution I see is that they not be allowed in the military.”
You see, if Womick said Islami is a religion of peace that has been hijacked by a tiny minority of excremists no one would have taken notice. But he chose to tell the truth, and Â predictably, all hell breaks lose….

Womick, R-Rockvale, set off a cascade of criticism for remarks that he made during an interview with Eli Clifton of thinkprogress.org Friday at an anti-Shariah conference in Nashville.
“Personally, I don’t trust one Muslim in our military,” Womick said in the interview. “If they truly are a devout Muslim and follow the Quran and the Sunnah, then I feel threatened because they’re commanded to kill me.”
The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) called on the Tennessee General Assembly to formally rebuke Womick for calling for removal of all Muslims from the military.
CAIR also called on state and national Republican Party leaders to repudiate Womick’s bigoted “un-American” comments.
Womick said Saturday he has no opinion on what CAIR had so say.
“They are a radical Islamic group,” said Womick, who fought as a U.S. Air Force fighter pilot in the first Gulf War to force Iraq’s military out of Kuwait in 1990-91. “Whatever they have to say, I choose to ignore.”
Womick’s comments particularly bother Islamic Center of Murfreesboro member Saleh Sbenaty.
“It’s really sad to see Mr. Womick’s comments coming on Veterans Day,” said Sbenaty, a 19-year MTSU professor in the Department of Engineering Technology. “He needs to be reminded that there are thousands of Muslims who serve and are serving (in the U.S. military), and there are many of them who gave up their lives to preserve the freedom of this country and the freedom that he is enjoying.”
There is more in the Tennesseean
Womick recalled three cases in which Muslim soldiers have attacked their fellow U.S. service members:
- Sgt. Hasan Akbar,who in 2002 threw a grenade under a tent of the 101st Airborne, killing two soldiers and wounding 14 others in Kuwait.
- Maj. Nidal Hasan,who in November 2009, killed 13 soldiers and wounded 30 at Fort Hood, Texas.
- and Pfc. Naser Abdo, who in July 2011 was absent without leave from Fort Campbell near Clarksville before authorities caught him and he told investigators he was planning to set off bombs in a restaurant that is frequented by U.S. service members near Fort Hood, Womick said.
