OBAMA'S LOVE OF ISLAM President Barack Obama cannot criticize anything done in the name of Islam, not even terror. Speaking at the conclusion of a conference just after the Jihad terror attack at Ft. Hood, President Obama said, "I planned to make some broader remarks. But as some of you might have heard there has been a tragic shooting at the Fort Hood Army base in Texas." The next morning before talking about the increasing joblessness in America he said, "This morning I met with FBI Director Mueller and the relevant agencies to discuss their ongoing investigation into what caused one individual to turn his gun on fellow servicemen and women. We don't know all of the answers yet, and I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all of the facts." This is a man who very early in his Presidency flew to the Muslim nations to assure them that he understood Islam and honored Islam. See video of him bowing to a Muslim king. Although he flew to Ft. Hood for a eulogy service for those killed, he has done all in his power to silence voices calling Nidal Malik Hasan's attack what it was, Islamic terrorism against unarmed men and women.

OMABA'S POLITICALLY CORRECT GENERAL - Soldiers serving under Army Chief of Staff George Casey, Jr. died and others were gravely injured, but the the general's first response was to say a "greater tragedy" would be if their deaths caused discomfort to Muslims. On CNN he said, "I am worried - not worried, but I'm concerned that this increased speculation could cause a backlash against some of our Muslim soldiers. And I've asked our Army leaders to be on the lookout for that. It would be a shame - as great a tragedy as this was - it would be a shame if our diversity became a casualty as well." Later on ABC he upped political correctness saying any "backlash" against Muslims would be "an even greater tragedy." Shamefully, this political correctness began with President George W. Bush, but has reached the point of self destructive insanity under Barack Obama.

SPECIAL ARMY UNIT FOR MUSLIMS ONLY - The 51st Translation Interpreter Company at Fort Irwin is an all Muslim unit -- no Christians or Jews allowed. The unit consists of 120 Muslims who were "recruited." Why are Christians and Jews prohibited from positions in this unit and what justification is given by the United States Army in this regard? just imagine the outrage of the ACLU and the leftist media if there were an all Jewish unit that worked on translations with Israeli intelligence. These Muslims were "recruited" with bonuses to join the Army, and many of them are there because of the money offered, not because of patriotism. Over 85% of those of Arab descent in the United States are Christians whose families have fled Muslim repression. Also, there are thousands of Iraqi Christian refugees who have worked as translators who are available. But the Army recruits Muslims, some with dubious connections to mosques that promote Jihad, all to prove how politically correct the Army is. Note to General Casey: Your job is to win wars, not to manage diversity.

AND THE NAVY - The six member volunteer Color Guard from the Naval Academy sent to the World Series consisted of all white men. When the top brass found this out they demanded diversity, so a white woman and a "Pakistani - American" were added to increase the Color Guard to eight members. But the "Pakistani - American" forgot part of his uniform. He and one white male were removed so the woman could furnish the "diversity." I am very sure that if the brass could have figured out how to get a Koran in the picture they would have done that as well. Links to story and video of ceremony.

OFFICIAL PROTEST CONCERNING MUSLIM ARMY UNIT - The Religious Freedom Coalition has made an official protest with several members of Congress asking for answers as to why the US Army is maintaining units "for Muslims only." The protest came in light of the disclosure that the 51st Translation Interpreter Company at Fort Irwin is an all Muslim unit. Results of the protest will be reported in these updates.

BILL CLINTON ADVISES THE SENATE - Former President Bill Clinton huddled with Senator Reid and other Democrats at a closed door meeting this past week. Clinton was sent by President Barack Obama to encourage the Senate to pass the Obama Care plan which squeaked through the House last week by two votes. Both Obama and Clinton are convinced that the reason the GOP took over the House in 1994 was because Democrats did not pass universal health care. Obama and Clinton believe that if the legislation passes, the Democrats will pick up seats rather than lose them. This is in spite of the fact that only 42% of the voters approve of government run health care. How this translates to more votes for Democrats I do not understand. Ask Bill Clinton. See poll

VICTIMHOOD OF HASAN -One of the excuses being given for the Jihad terror attack at Fort Hood is that Nidal Hasan once had a bumper sticker removed from his car that expressed his Islamic faith. Dozens of major media outlets have offered this as proof that he was "persecuted as a Muslim." Removing a bumper sticker is "persecution," and in part the justification for mass murder? Newsweek editor Evan Thomas said, "I cringe that he's a Muslim. I mean, because it inflames all the fears. I think he's probably just a nut case. But with that label attached to him, it will get the right wing going and it just -- I mean these things are tragic, but that makes it much worse." In other words liberals would have much preferred the shooter to have been a crazed white male carrying a Bible.

The reality of Hasan's treatment is the reverse of what liberals try to portray. Nidal Hasan was treated by everyone in the Army who came in contact with him with extra sensitivity because he was so openly a radical Muslim of Arab descent. It was sort of like being a homosexual at a firm like Microsoft, where a gay man can't get fired no matter how much he screws up. Hasan did poorly in the Army Medical School and would have been flunked out had he been a Christian or Jew. The Army wanted a Muslim psychiatrist so badly that it lowered its standards and allowed a man to obtain a medical degree who was not only a dimwit, but one who promoted Jihadist concepts. Under his name on his business cards the letters "SOA" appeared for "Soldier of Islam." He not only contacted those in Yemen promoting Jihad, but there is now evidence he sent funds to terrorist organizations in the Middle East as well. The FBI knew this, the CIA knew this and Army Intelligence knew this. BUT, he was the Army's only Muslim psychiatrist, so it was hands off. Had he been a Jew who radically supported Israel, he probably would have been arrested for "spying." But because Hasan was a Muslim, he was a "victim" regardless of his actions. Good op-ed on this subject

MODERATE CAIR? - Our military turns to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to help recruit "moderate" imams as chaplains. Also, the FBI has cooperated with CAIR in the past, even asking their advice on various matters. Even before all the bodies were removed from Ft. Hood following the latest Jihad attack, CAIR representatives were in the media condemning the attack and expressing concern about a "backlash" against Muslims. Just how "moderate" is this organization? As one example, a frequent speaker at CAIR events is Zaid Shakir, who says it is wrong to shoot down civilian aircraft in the USA, but OK to shoot down aircraft carrying military service personel, even within the United States. Now we know what CAIR means by "moderate". Read more

WHY DID FBI QUESTION VIRGINIA PASTOR? - Several weeks ago I reported that a friend of mine, Rev. Patrick Mahoney, was questioned by the FBI as to why he organized a demonstration at the Chinese Embassy in Washington, in support of religious freedom. In light of the FBI looking the other way from the radical contacts of Nidal Hasan before his Jihad attack that killed 13 at Ft. Hood, there are some questions Rev. Mahoney wants answered. He stated, "It is even more troubling to realize that I was visited at my home by the FBI for peacefully exercising my First Amendment rights, yet Major Hasan received no such visit by the FBI for contacting Islamic terrorists multiple times and making threatening comments to the American military. How is it possible that a Christian minister is investigated and questioned by federal agents for holding a peaceful prayer vigil and a person who killed 13 people and had numerous contacts with terrorists was never visited or questioned?" Those are questions the FBI should be forced by congressional investigators to answer. Read more

WHEN THE SHOOTER BECOMES THE VICTIM - On November 12th the Washington Times' lead editorial concerned the new victimhood of Jihad terrorist Nidal Hasan. The editorial is interesting in that it observes how the mainstream media always "bemoan the perpetrator's troubles and then sprinkle them with pop psychology." Although not mentioned in the editorial, Dr. Phil managed to give his half witted view of the killer's motives without mentioning the victims on Larry King Live. I lean toward the view that by this time next year the New York Times will run an editorial on how the shooing victims at Ft. Hood somehow forced Hasan to pull the trigger. Read editorial

A FULL LIST OF HASAN'S JIHAD VICTIMS - A list of the victims and stories of their lives is not easy to find even on the Internet. The mainstream media has focused on the shooter. But a Dallas-Ft Worth TV station has done a pretty good job at listing the thirteen dead and giving a little of their backgrounds. Read here

IRAQI CHRISTIANS IN JORDAN - Our ministry partner from Amman, Jordan visited Washington, DC this week. Among other activities, he made a presentation before the regional directors of the Christian women's organization Aglow International who were in Washington, DC for a conference. Meetings were also held with some congressmen and their staff members. The delivery options for our next major shipment of medical supplies in November was also discussed. Several people have sent e-mails asking why we do not mention names of the organizations and people who work with us in Jordan and other Muslim nations. Regretfully the names and photographs are not used for reasons of security. Dead men can't help anyone. Your help is still needed.
