They knew. Two years before the Fort Hood jihad massacre, the Army knew of jihadis in its ranks — and did nothing.
Investigative reporter Bill Gertz has revealed: “Almost two years before the deadly Fort Hood shooting by a radicalized Muslim officer, the U.S. Army was explicitly warned that jihadism — Islamic holy war — was a serious problem and threat to personnel in the U.S., according to participants at a major Army-sponsored conference.”
Over 350 Army officials involved in counterterror efforts attended this February 2008 conference. One of the speakers, Lt. Colonel Joseph Myers, explains the topic of his lecture: “I noted that because of our lack of understanding of Islamic doctrines, Islamic Jihad and my view that our counterintelligence function is broken, outdated and being usurped in some cases by public affairs and equal opportunity officials, we were going to get soldiers killed in America, on our own bases for that professional ignorance.”
And that’s just what happened at Fort Hood.
What makes this so profoundly disturbing is that it shows that senior level officials knew. They were explicitly warned that jihadism — Islamic holy war — was a serious problem and a threat to military personnel and civilians alike. And still they did nothing. Not only did they do nothing, but they left known jihadis like Nidal Hasan, who murdered thirteen Americans at Fort Hood in his jihad attack of November 2009, in place and unsupervised.
They knew. And still they sacrificed Americans.
Major Hasan’s June 2007 power-point presentation, which he presented to fellow doctors on grand rounds instead of giving the lecture on psychiatry they had been expecting, is accurate as a description of how mainstream Muslims have always understood Islamic jihad. It reflects the absolute rules of Islam that have been established by scholarly consensus. It is an accurate religious document, reflecting accurately Islam’s absolute law. Hasan got nothing wrong.
Christianity does not teach its adherents jihad. The objective of Christianity or Judaism is not rooted in the murder of non-believers and the absolute mandate to murder, maim and destroy until the world lives under their religious law. That is Islam. That is its goal. Muslims know this. That is why you do not see blowback and protest and outrage from the Muslims against the horrible unrelenting Islamic attacks across the world. That is why you do not hear Muslims calling out for the violence prescribed in the Qur’an to be expunged. Islamic tradition says that the end times won’t come until Muslims murder Jews wholesale: religiously mandated genocide.
If I know this, why don’t our senior level officials at the Pentagon, the FBI, and the CIA know this?
Last month the Pentagon released its report on Major Nidal Hasan’s Fort Hood massacre. The report described the massacre as a systemic breakdown within the military that permitted this Muslim Army psychiatrist, now charged with killing thirteen people, to advance through the ranks despite concerns from his superiors about his anti-American, pro-jihad statements and actions.
There is nothing wacky or extreme or radical about Hasan’s devotion to Islam. What is wacky, extreme and suicidal is the Pentagon’s review of Hasan’s jihad without mentioning or addressing Islam, and the objective of our mortal enemy – to establish Dar al Islam in Israel, Europe, and America. Nowhere does the Pentagon’s Fort Hood report discuss jihad and the ideology that mandates and commands good Muslims to wage jihad against non-Muslims.
This is surrender. And it isn’t limited just to the Fort Hood report. Did you know in the FBI’s Counter-Terrorism Manual, the word jihad is not to be found? Not once.
This is no accident. This is happening because for decades the Muslim Brotherhood (i.e., the Muslim American Society, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Islamic Society of North America, the Islamic Circle of North America, etc.), has infiltrated every agency and institution at the highest levels, and they control what is said and how it can be said.
Islam has achieved absolute intellectual dominance. The Muslim Brotherhood groups in the United States control the narrative. They control information and how it is processed at senior levels of the CIA, the FBI, the Pentagon, and the various branches of the military.
And so they knew about the jihadis in the ranks, and did nothing. Will the thirteen dead at Fort Hood move the American people to rise up and demand an end to the Muslim Brotherhood influence in our government? If that happens, they will not have died in vain.
