Major Hasan

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

Submitted by Gloria Stewart (United States), Nov 10, 2009 at 17:35

When will Americans stop dancing around the dead elephant in the living room? How many more Fort Hoods or even 9/11s will it take? Major Hasan is a Muslim and historically Muslims wage violent jihad against non-believers. He did not hijack Islam: Islam hijacked him.

It might help to realize that Islam is not religion as we generally use the term. It is a creed that resembles Communism and fascism, not only in its scope but in its totalitarian impulses. There is no moderate Islam; there may be moderate Muslims but they seem disinclined to reform their religion or criticize it. Perhaps they sense it would be useless as the parameters of Islam would not permit it. As long as Muslims belief that the Koran is the literal word of Allah, infallible and uncreated, no reform is possible.

Muslims are mandated to bring Islam to all corners of the earth. Major Hasan made sure that there were 13 fewer non-believers.
