Major Hasan`s Powerpoint: Can`t Say He Didn`t Warn Us
From the Washington Post:
Under a slide titled “Comments,” he wrote: “If Muslim groups can convince Muslims that they are fighting for God against injustices of the `infidels`; ie: enemies of Islam, then Muslims can become a potent adversary ie: suicide bombing, etc.” [sic]
The last bullet point on that page reads simply: “We love death more then (sic) you love life!”
Under the “Conclusions” page, Hasan wrote that “Fighting to establish an Islamic State to please God, even by force, is condoned by the Islam,” and that “Muslim Soldiers should not serve in any capacity that renders them at risk to hurting/killing believers unjustly — will vary!”
The final page, labeled “Recommendation,” contained only one suggestion:
“Department of Defense should allow Muslims (sic) Soldiers the option of being released as `Conscientious objectors` to increase troop morale and decrease adverse events.”
Of course, conscientious objection status is only granted to pacifists, not to people who would rather hurt us than the enemy.
