Allahu Akbar: "Motive Still Unclear…"

Just don’t mention Islam or Muslims….


When Nidal Malik Hasan murdered 13 people at Fort Hood in November 2009, he offered a loud clue about his motivation:

Eyewitnesses say suspected gunman Nidal Malik Hasan shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ or ‘God is great’ before opening fire …

But few wanted to hear it. The report above, for example, opens with: “The motive for the deadly Fort Hood shooting rampage that has left America reeling is still unclear.” It wasn’t unclear to one of Hasan’s victims, soldier Logan Burnette:

So the guy screams an Islamic oath at the top of his lungs then commences killing people. Nothing to see here, folks. Australian ABC news ran an eight-minute report without once mentioning Hasan’s faith. Barack Obama announced that “we cannot fully know” why Hasan slaughtered so many. Desperate to avoid the screamingly obvious, various media theorised that Hasan may have suffered post-traumatic stress disorder, pre-traumatic stress disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder by proxy, prospective traumatic stress disorder, compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma or secondary trauma. One problem with all that post-trauma talk: Hasan had no trauma to be post of. And as for his Islamic death-screech, the Guardian‘s Michael Tomasky offered a simple explanation:

The fact that Hassan reportedly shouted the above is meant, I suppose, to imply that he was an extremist fanatic.

I’m not sure that it does. My understanding is that it’s something Arab people often shout before doing something or other. It’s used in many different situations.

Shootings, beheadings, stonings, you name it. No big deal. Nearly a month after the Fort Hood massacre, the NYT’sThomas Friedman finally worked out that Hasan was “just another angry jihadist”. Which was what Hasan tried to tell us from the very beginning.

Now to Tucson, Arizona, where six people are dead and Democrat congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is seriously injured following another gun rampage. Attacker Jared Lee Loughner has thus far offered no clue at all about why he did it. Apparently the fellow is a drug-using gamer whom one former classmate recalls as “left wing”, a “political radical”, “reclusive”, a “pot head” and “quite liberal”. He’d met Giffords four years ago and thought her “stupid & unintelligent”. Besides that background and Loughner’s MySpace and YouTube rantings, that’s all we have. There’s no “Allahu Akbar” here. Yet – incredibly – many clearly heard a cry of “Allahu Palin”. The UK Telegraph‘s Toby Harnden:

Paul Krugman of the “New York Times” suggests darkly that Giffords was shot because she was “a Democrat who survived what was otherwise a GOP sweep in Arizona” and “violent acts are what happen when you create a climate of hate” (those reponsible for such a climate being, of course, Republicans).

TBogg of FireDogLake wades straight in and blames Sarah Palin for the shooting because of a graphic of crosshairs placed on the districts of moderate Democrats …

Jane Fonda pins it on Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck and the Tea Party.

Krugman’s view: “We don’t have proof yet that this was political, but the odds are that it was.” Who needs proof? CBS and Daily Kos also put Palin in the frame. Like their columnist, the NYT isn’t waiting for further evidence:

Regardless of what led to the episode, it quickly focused attention on the degree to which inflammatory language, threats and implicit instigations to violence have become a steady undercurrent in the nation’s political culture.

Such as Barack Obama’s 2008 statement at a Democrat fundraiser: “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.” But the NYT is more worried about Palin:

Ms. Giffords was also among a group of Democratic House candidates featured on the Web site of Sarah Palin’s political action committee with cross hairs over their districts, a fact that disturbed Ms. Giffords at the time.

“At the time” being last March. How this map featured in Loughner’s homicidal thinking is anyone’s guess, but it’s currently exhibit A. The Australian‘s Brad Norington:

Last March, Ms Giffords was among 20 Democrats whose districts were marked on an internet campaign map with a gunsight’s crosshairs as “targets” of mid-term elections of former Republican presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

That would be vice presidential candidate. Al Arabiya‘s Ali Younes:

The aftermath of electing the first African American president, coupled with a democratic sweeping wins in the US congress in 2008, created a conservative and right wing backlash that saw threats of violence, increase in extremist groups. Such an environment created a hateful atmosphere that culminated in the shooting of Congresswoman Giffords in Arizona.

That’s the essential picture being sold worldwide. Matt Bai in the Age refers to:

Sarah Palin’s infamous ‘’cross-hairs’’ map from last year, which showed a series of contested congressional districts, including Giffords’s, with gun targets trained on them.

The SMH’s Simon Mann:

Commentators pointed to an online map posted by Mrs Palin before the midterm congressional elections last year that used gun cross-hairs to mark the districts of 20 Democrats she wanted to defeat, along with Mrs Palin’s frequent use of shooting metaphors on the campaign trail.

Michael Tomasky – the Guardian muppet who saw nothing noteworthy in Hasan’s pre-shooting “Allahu Akbar” – now sets the evidentiary bar a little lower:

You don’t have to believe that alleged shooter, Jared Loughner, is a card-carrying Tea Party member (he evidently is not) to see some kind of connection between [rightwing] violent rhetoric and what happened in Arizona on Saturday …

He went to considerable expense and trouble to shoot a high-profile Democrat, at point-blank range right through the brain. What else does one need to know?

Nothing, apparently. At a vigil for Giffords in Washington, reporters pushed the Palin line:

Though the vigil was by no means a witch hunt for a culprit, some of the attendees – often when pressed by reporters – criticized Sarah Palin’s use of a diagram with crosshairs over certain Congressional districts that she saw as targets in the upcoming election.

Funny thing about those crosshairs. They ain’t crosshairs. These are crosshairs. The images shown on Palin’s map are crop marks, commonly used in printing.

More from the leftist smear machine:

What a surprise. They neglect to mention that The Communist Manifesto andMein Kampf were among the shooter’s favorite books.

Never let a good crisis go to waste:

The left calls for violent revolution, blames the right for “inflammatory rhetoric”

Did Hussein Obama Cause the Shootings Yesterday in Tucson?

Of course he did. We all know that:


The media and democrats want us to focus on the nation’s “caustic political climate”after the tragedy yesterday. Maybe they should start with President Obama.
He may be the worst offender.

** Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”
** Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”
** Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
** Obama to His Mercenary Army: “Hit Back Twice As Hard”
** Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.
** Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat
** Obama to lib supporters: “It’s time to Fight for it.”
** Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish your enemies.”
** Obama to democrats: “I’m itching for a fight.”

If the media really wants to improve the “caustic political climate” they may want to start at the White House.  (Gateway Pundit)

  1. Suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.? Hardly my friends. It is called the Permanent Traumatic Stress which together with allied mental problems that we call Islam. They are manics. We cant change this, but we can keep them out of our countries, not invite them in like our government does. What is it that pollies dont understand about


  2. It is too bad this muslim scum was not immediately bayonetted.

    IMO all military personnel should be armed with all post guards’ rifles in the “fix bayonets” position. We are at war. During WWII, I believe our military guards were patrolling with bayonets fixed…much like the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Get with it DoD, Pentagon, et al…we are at war with a vicious enemy who likes to brandish cold steel. Give them the bayonet.

  3. Michael Tomasky is unable to speak Dhimmi-Arabic and is therefore ignorant of the difference between ‘inshallah’ (dropped a hammer on my foot) and ‘Allahu Akbar’ (drop dead you dirt under my shoe).

  5. The Senseless Cop-Out on Jihad

    Posted by Diana West May 26th 2011

    “We may never know why” the Hasan attack happened”

    The Army honored a fallen hero of the Ft. Hood Jihad Massacre with a medal this week. Not, of course, that the Army describes the November 2009 attack in such meaningful terms. Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan may have shouted “Allahu Akbar”; (Arabic for “Allah is the greatest”) as he killed 14 and wounded more than two dozen; may have been in contact with jihad cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and frequented jihadist websites; may have had business cards proclaiming himself a “SoA” (Soldier of Allah); and may have created and presented an Islamically correct PowerPoint brief outlining reasons for jihad by Muslims within the U.S. Armed Forces, but no matter. His actions remain a total mystery to the U.S. Army.

    To wit: “Although we may never know why it happened, we do know that heroic actions took place that day,” Brig. Gen. Joseph DiSalvo said in presenting the Secretary of the Army Award for Valor to Joleen Cahill, widow of Michael Grant Cahill. Cahill is recognized as the first person to have tried to stop Hasan and the only civilian to have been killed by Hasan that day. “He will forever be a source of inspiration.”

    Alas, I have my doubts about the deputy commanding general of Ft. Hood. Despite overwhelming evidence that Hasan committed an act of jihad, DiSalvo — like the Army, like the U.S. government — looks the other way. “We may never know why” the Hasan attack happened, DiSalvo said without, apparently, turning red or rolling his eyes.


    The story of Nidal Malik Hasan, the radical Islamist behind the Fort Hood massacre, is the story of diversity in America. It’s the story of “happy talk” and its terrible consequences. From the moment of his birth to the day he followed through with his plot, his path was cleared by abstractions, delusions, and politically correct taboos. Even now, with over a dozen American soldiers slaughtered and evidence of Hasan’s radical Islamic associations mounting, we aren’t going to have a moment of clarity.

    In fact, the more obvious the truth becomes, the more hysterical the liars get. General George Casey, the Army’s top officer actually said, “Our diversity, not only in our Army, but in our country, is a strength. And as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse.” Several of his soldiers have died at the hands of a foreign agent hidden in plain sight and his gravest concern isn’t for his fallen comrades or his country – it’s for that “diversity”.

    Yes, a foreign agent. Nidal Malik Hasan, contrary to the party line, was never an American, had no business in America, had no business in our military, and certainly had no business being promoted to the rank of Major. Let’s peel back the layers of this onion of delusions and start asking some tough questions. Let’s cut the happy talk and apply some cool blue reason to this foreigner’s life.

    First off, what is he doing here?

    His parents were Palestinian Muslims who migrated here. How did they get here? Who brought them here? Why are we inviting people from countries we’re at war with to live among us? Yes, our government has been funding and supporting Israel’s military conquest of Palestine, a conquest which has been going on for decades. The happy talk is that America is a partner in the peace process. The reality is that Palestinians have a bone to pick with America, a bone that Hasan just picked.

    And how did he become a citizen? He was born here. But he’s not American. He’s ethnically Middle Eastern. He’s a Muslim. He openly and proudly defied everything that America is. He supported Sharia government. He often wore his ridiculous “Punjabi suit”. But nobody spoke up. Who in the military would dare speak up when the highest-ranking general would rather have you die than have his radical social experiment fail?

    The truth, without the happy talk, is that our government has invited an enemy combatant into the highest ranks of its military. The truth, without the happy talk, is that sworn enemies of America are moving here every day from the countries that we’re either openly or secretly at war with. The emperor is buck naked, everybody knows it, and only a few heroes and fools are stating the obvious.

    We live in the age of happy talk. No joke. Our nation is bankrupt, our currency is worthless, and our productive capacity is long gone. All we have is happy talk about how the economy is working very well for the wealthy. We have happy talk about how we’ve entered a brave new “service economy” powered by “symbolic manipulation” while the corporation takes your job, the bank takes your home, and the IRS takes everything else. Our government has been hijacked in broad daylight by Goldman Sachs while their puppet, Obama, mesmerizes America with his enchanting happy talk.

    And what enchanting happy talk it is! This America, this deluded, confused, and declining country, deserves Barack Obama. The man is absolutely nothing but happy talk. He has never led or administered anything. He has never really done anything his whole life except make happy talk in that authoritative baritone right out of central casting. And that’s just fine, since there’s nothing left for the American president to do except offer rationalizations for the regime’s usurpations and feign the illusion of continuity with traditional American politics.

    We Americans have lost our jobs, our life savings, our sovereignty, our families, and our religion. All we have left is happy talk. Obama, like a condescending hospice nurse, is assuring America that it’s going to all be okay, that it’s going to get all better, that the treatment is working. And Obama’s correct. The treatment is working. It’s just not working for YOU. This government is running like a well-oiled machine. It’s just not running for YOU. The economy is paying out record dividends. It’s just not paying you.

    Wake up, America, then stand up. Stand with us and join the Council of Conservative Citizens today.
