Muslim Threat within Military

November 10, 2009

Fox News reports that Nidal Hisan, the Army officer muslim terrorist that killed 13 US soliders and civilians at Ft. Hood delivered a presentation to senior Army physicians in 2007 that made a case for allowing muslim soldiers to be released as conscientious objectors instead of having to go to war and fight other muslims.

So, let’s get this straight.  This guy enlists in the military.  Our government spends God know how much money and time to train him to help US soldiers dealing with combat-related stress.  The USA is at war with Islamic jihadists in Iraq and Afganistan.  He wakes up one morning with a moral dillema.   

“It’s getting harder and harder for Muslims in the service to morally justify being in a military that seems constantly engaged against fellow Muslims,” Hasan said in his 2007 presentation.  Imagine what would be said if a soldier suggested that Christians should be released as conscientious objectors because they couldn’t resolve the moral implications of fighting other Christians?

Where was his moral compass when he enlisted?  It’s been a long time since anyone was drafted into military service in this country.  No one forced him to serve.  Yes, the military offers food, clothing, shelter, and the opportunity of an education, but it comes with a price.  You take an oath to defend your country against all enemies, foriegn and domestic.  If you’re not prepared to live up to your oath, don’t join the military!

Fast forward two years and Nidal Hasan is receives orders deploying him to Afghanistan.  He is to be part of a US Army team that will help GI’s deal with comabat stress in the field.  He’s still living with his moral dillema – how can he as a muslim, go to a place where US soldiers are fighting muslims?  So instead of following his orders, he decides to shoot up a US military base and kill 13 people.  Interestingly, in his mind, that is a perfectly moral thing to do.

Nidal Hasan is a terrorist and a traitor.  Unfortunately, it looks like he will recover from the 4 holes that Officer Kim Munley put in him.  As soon as he is able to stand, he should be given a military trial, found guilty, and punished for his crime.  Wouldn’t it be poetic justice if his executioner is also a muslim?
