If there are 1.57 billion Muslims in the world and only 1% are ready and willing to commit violence against unbelievers, how many potential terrorists does that leave? That’s higher than I can count, whatever the number is. (BTW, 1% is a total arbitrary number which I pulled out of thin air for the purposes of this example.)
Whatever the precise calculation is, include Nidal Malik Hasan in that final number. Politically correct types want to say that post-traumatic stress disorder had crawled off of his patients and embedded itself in its brain; mental disorder by association, as it were.
The fact of the matter is that he attended the same mosque at the same time as two of the 911 hijackers and spoke glowingly of its radical imam.
Hasan shouted “God is great” in Arabic as he started shooting unarmed soldiers while standing on top of a table to have a wider field of fire.
There are plenty of stories on news sites about how Hasan had net postings glorifying Muslim suicide bombers, how he was put on probation for trying to convert patients and coworkers to the religion of peace during his post graduate work, how he believed that Muslims should rise up against American soldiers in our current Middle East conflicts.
People need to understand that we are living in a post-911 world, where adherents to a radical religious belief feel that Americans and Israelis are less than human and must convert or die. It’s not the world we would have preferred but it’s the one we have to start dealing with.
