Blind Diversity Equals Death

The violence at Fort Hood,
President Obama told mourners on Tuesday, was


"twisted logic
that led to the tragedy,"
he reiterated, may be
"too hard to comprehend." If the Bush administration suffered a
systemic failure of imagination on homeland security,
the Obama administration is suffering a willful failure
of comprehension.

What exactly is so hard to
comprehend? Fort Hood jihadist Maj. Nidal Hasan made his

means, motives and inspiration
all too clear for
those willing to see and hear. In his 2007

slide presentation
to fellow Army doctors on


World View As It Relates to Muslims in the Military," Hasan

spelled it out:

"We love death
more then (sic) you love life!"[

Hasan exposed the deadly tension
between his adherence to Islam and his service in the
U.S. military. Slide 11 stated:
"It`s getting
harder and harder for Muslims in the service to morally
justify being in a military that seems constantly
engaged against fellow Muslims."
Slide 12 cited
Koranic sanctions for killing fellow believers. And
Hasan made clear he wasn`t alone among Muslim soldiers
who "should not
serve in any capacity that renders them at risk to
hurting/killing believers unjustly."

Slide 13 ominously listed
"adverse events" involving Muslim soldiers—including the

fatal 2003 fragging attack
on American soldiers in
Kuwait by

Sgt. Hasan Akbar
(who was sentenced to death but
remains alive while his case is on appeal); the
desertion case of Lebanon-born Muslim Marine Wassef Ali
Hassoun; and the espionage case of Muslim chaplain James
Yee (the charges were dropped, but the case raised
lingering security concerns about Muslim chaplains at
Gitmo and elsewhere trained by terror-linked
Saudi-subsidized institutes).

Hasan missed

a few "adverse
that have faded from public memory in
our reflexive age of
"Islam is peace" emotionalism-over-comprehension:

  • John Muhammad, the
    Beltway jihadist

    put to death
    Tuesday night, was a member of the
    Army`s 84th Engineering Company. As I`ve reported

    Muhammad was suspected of throwing a thermite grenade
    into a tent housing 16 of his fellow soldiers as
    they slept before the ground-attack phase of Gulf War I
    in 1991. Muhammad was admitted to the Army despite being
    court-martialed while serving in the Louisiana National
    Guard for

    willfully disobeying orders
    , striking another
    noncommissioned officer, wrongfully taking property and
    being absent without leave.

    Although Muhammad was led away in handcuffs and
    transferred to another company pending charges for the
    grenade attack, an indictment never materialized.
    Muhammad was honorably discharged from the Army in 1994.
    He later

    brainwashed young Lee Malvo
    in black nationalism and
    jihad—and the two carried out the three-week killing
    spree that left 10 dead in 2002 in the name of Allah.

  • Muslim American soldier Hasan Abujihaad was

    last year on espionage and material
    terrorism support charges after serving aboard the
    USS Benfold
    and sharing classified information with al-Qaida
    financiers, including movements of U.S. ships just six
    months after al-Qaida operatives had killed 17 Americans
    aboard the

    USS Cole

    in the port of Yemen.

  • Jeffrey Leon Battle was a former Army reservist,
    convicted of conspiring to levy war against the
    United States and

    "enlisting in the
    Reserves to receive military training to use against
    He had planned to wage war against
    American soldiers in Afghanistan.

  • Egyptian Ali A. Mohamed joined the U.S. Army
    while a

    resident alien
    despite being on a State Department
    terrorist watch list before securing his visa. An avowed
    Islamist, he taught classes on Muslim culture to U.S.
    Special Forces at Fort Bragg, N.C., and obtained
    classified military documents. He was granted U.S.
    citizenship over the objections of the CIA. Honorably
    discharged from the Army in 1989, Mohamed then hooked up
    with Osama bin Laden as an escort, trainer, bagman and
    messenger. Mohamed used his U.S. passport to conduct
    surveillance at the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi. He later
    pleaded guilty to conspiring with bin Laden and admitted
    his role in the 1998 African embassy bombings that
    killed more than 200 people, including a dozen

Political correctness is a
gangrenous infection. My generation has submitted to a
toxic diet of multiculturalism, identity politics,
anti-Americanism and entitlement. The problem festered
under the Bush administration. Despite 9/11, government
at all levels refused to screen out jihadi-apologizing
influences in our military, at the FBI, in prisons and
even fire departments. Despite the bloody consequences
of open borders, the Bush Pentagon allowed illegal
aliens to enter the military. The grievance lobby has
plied the Muslim jihadist-as-victim narrative for nearly
a decade now.

They prevail. In June, Muslim
domestic terror suspect Abdul Hakim Mujahid Muhammad
went on another shooting spree at an Arkansas recruiting
station that left one serviceman dead. The Obama Justice
Department response: to redouble its efforts to use

"criminal and
civil rights laws to protect Muslim Americans."

Next week, Attorney General Eric
Holder will

speak at a banquet
featuring the Council on
American-Islamic Relations, an unindicted co-conspirator
in the terrorism financing case against the Holy Land
Foundation for Relief and Development.

How did Fort Hood happen, obtuse
Washington asks. Simple: Blind diversity equals death.
