Confused by Ft. Hood Incident? Don't be...
Read a great article explaining why Maj. Hasan was definitely engaged in jihad and not just some random nut-job at the media/govt, etc. want us to believe. For most of the people reading this blog, you probably already know -- but feel free to direct those uninitiated to the article. The best was this summary at the end:
The ultimate lesson? So long as Muslim doctrines are downplayed in the West, so long will warning signs, even concrete intelligence, be ignored, so long will such seemingly inexplicable incidents occur, so long will the media continue grasping for straws and Americans be "completely blindsided," so long will "Muslim grievance" be the default answer, so long will appeasement and concessions (domestically and internationally) be the only solution, so long will jihadis and Islamists grow emboldened and contemptuous, expecting more. Ad infinitum.
Conversely, if the Fort Hood massacre causes Americans to begin taking Islam's doctrines more seriously, the thirteen slain, while dying tragically, will not have died in vain.
