Sudden Jihad is "Not Sudden" ; It's Premeditated

Reader comment on item: Sudden Jihad or "Inordinate Stress" at Ft. Hood?

Submitted by Mike Ramirez (United States), Nov 9, 2009 at 10:53

This was not a case of a devout Muslim soldier in the U.S. Army "suddenly snapping" and carrying out the deadly rampage of shooting and killing fellow-soldiers at Ft. Hood. Reportedly, Major Hasan's actions became premeditated and fueled by his voiced reluctance to be deployed to fight with U.S. soldiers in the Middle East. The warning signs were there but unfortunately went ignored.

As a devout Muslim, Hasan acted upon his personal beliefs in the Fundamental Islamic Ideology and teaching that makes it unlawful to spill the blood of another Muslim when fighting for the cause of Al'lah. Thus, asking devout Muslim soldiers within U.S. Forces to go to the Middle East to fight against others of the Islamic faith will continue to be met with resistance and potential situations as carried out by Major Hasan. For that reason the Muslim world in the Middle East view Major Hasan as a "hero".

At this point, the United States Military should seriously consider allowing all Muslim soldiers the opportunity to be discharged immediately upon their request.
