UPDATE Number Two; The Fort Hood jihadi was a member of Obamas Homeland Security Panel. And the morning of the murderous rampage, Hasan had handed out korans. NICE!
H/T Jihad Watch
UPDATE:The imam who vouched for Hasan (describing him as devout) is also a chapter member of the ISNA, another Holy Land Foundation unindicted terror coconspirator. And this from Classical Values.
He attended daily services and signed up for the mosque's matchmaking service.
"He wanted a wife more religious than him," Faizul Khan told the Daily News. "She had to pray five times a day. She had to wear the hajib. He was a young, good looking guy and a physician but he couldn't find anybody."
Khan said he never heard Hasan express any political opinions. But at least once this year, Hasan apparently went online to defend suicide bombing.
CAIR was quick to quell any public suspicion tying the Fort Hood murderous shooting rampage, perpetrated by Major Nidal Malik Hasan, to the RoP. By 9pm the unindicted terror coconspirator issued a whine-o-gram press release urging "unity and calm". And in this unprecedented time of anti-islamic bias, CAIR felt the need to include a link to the CAIR Muslim Community Safety Kit.
I want to know who, exactly, needs to remain calm and united. Seems to me the problem, once again, lies within the ummah. If I’m not mistaken, this muslim was the one with the dilemma and acted on it by murdering American servicemen. And the unindicted terror coconspirators are concerned about the safety of the islamic community? Why doesn't the ADL, USCJ or SBC publish a Christian and Jewish community safety guide? Seems to me we're the folks that would benefit from such a pamphlet. Well, I think it’s time to make the case for internment. We just can’t trust muslims living in this country!
(WASHINGTON, D.C., 11/5/09) - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) tonight reiterated the Muslim community’s condemnation of today’s deadly shootings at Fort Hood in Texas and urged the nation to remain calm and unified as Americans nationwide react to the tragic events.
At a news conference tonight on Capitol Hill, CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad said:
“We reiterate the American Muslim community’s condemnation of
this cowardly attack. Right now, we call on all Americans to assist those who
are responding to this atrocity. We must ensure that the wounded are treated and
the families of those who were murdered have an opportunity to mourn.
“No political or religious ideology could ever justify or excuse such wanton and
indiscriminate violence. The attack was particularly heinous in that it targeted
our nation’s all-volunteer army that includes thousands of Muslims in all
services. We again offer our thoughts and prayers for the victims and sincere
condolences for the families of those killed or injured.
“The motive of the attacker is not yet known. We urge all Americans to remain calm in reaction to this tragic event and to demonstrate once again what is best about America –
our nation’s ability to remain unified even in times of crisis. We urge national
political and religious leaders and media professionals to set a tone of calm
“Unfortunately, based on past experience, we also urge American
Muslims, and those who may be perceived to be Muslim, to take appropriate
precautions to protect themselves, their families and their religious
institutions from possible backlash. (editors note; What backlash are they talking about? CAIR is still waiting for the "backlash" in the wake of 9/11)
Along with innumerable condemnations of terror, CAIR has in the past launched an online anti-terror petition drive called “Not in the Name of Islam,” initiated a television public service announcement (PSA) campaign against religious extremism and coordinated a “fatwa,” or Islamic religious ruling, against terrorism and extremism.
CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
