The gullibility (or intentional bow to political correctness) in this country regarding Islam and its adherents/leaders, especially its ayatollahs, imams and mullahs, etc., is galling. The Christmas-day bombing of a Catholic church in Madalla, Nigeria, in which some 40 people died, was carried out by radical jihadists, a euphemism for murderous imbeciles. It is yet another example of the well-documented requirement in the Koran, the sacred book of Islam written circa 600 by an alleged illiterate named Mohammad, that the “infidel” (anyone not a Muslim) must be killed at every opportunity, especially, one presumes, that can be designed as well as occurring by “accident.”
The Nigerian genocide – simply the latest of myriads of them in Africa by radical Muslims – was not one that accrued to an “opportunity.” It was a blatant, planned bit of butchery carried out in connection with a Christian observance, thus remarking the hated Christians as special targets in the name of “Allah,” the god of the Koran and not to be confused with the God of the Holy Scriptures. Iranian President Ahmadinejad and his on-site ayatollah, Hoseyni Khameini, have made it abundantly and publicly clear that the aim of Islam is the death of every Jew, thus the total condemnation of Judeo-Christianity.
The latest slap in the face to both the U.S. military and the public in general is the decision by the Obama administration to allow Muslim cadets in the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) to wear scarves or turbans while in uniform, thus putting its imprimatur on Islam-as-acceptable, an act so despicable as to be considered treasonous. It is but the latest indication that President Obama seems more impressed with the first ten years of his upbringing as a Muslim than with his latter-day testimonies as to his Christianity, learned from his mentor, the Rev. Dr. Jeremiah (God damn America) Wright, who likely would love nothing better than the denigration of the military.
It’s perfectly obvious that the president intends for that turban-policy to be inculcated (executive order by the commander-in-chief without so much as a mention to either the military or Congress?) as soon as possible in all the military branches. Imagine U.S. soldiers in their turbans facing the Taliban or al Qaeda butchers in their turbans. This is sickening. This is the way Obama attacked and devastated Libya – by executive order – so it’s perfectly reasonable to expect him to do the same in this matter. The wimpy Congress is not even a player – just roll over and play dead.
Now that the U.S. GIs have left Iraq, the massacres have begun…all perfectly predictable right from the start of the misguided nation-building effort that George Bush said at the beginning of his first term would never happen. He could have and should have declared victory in May 2003, brought the troops home and finished off al Qaeda in Afghanistan then. The same mistake is being made now in Afghanistan, not least because Americans do not understand Muslim thinking, i.e., that human life, far from being sacred, is expendable whenever some Muslim cleric says it is.
One has only to look at what’s happening in Syria when contemplating allowing the turban to be part of a U.S. military uniform. Muslims (symbolized by the turban/scarf) don’t enjoy killing just any old infidel much more than they delight in wasting each other. Folks who blame the U.S. for the tens of thousands of civilian lives lost in Iraq would do well to remember that virtually all of those lives were snuffed out as Muslims killed Muslims, as in Sunni vs. Shiite vs. Kurd vs. al Qaeda. In Syria, the Muslim government is killing Muslim citizens, just as happened in Yemen, Libya, Tunisia or other Islamic-controlled states. Saddam managed to kill 400,000 fellow Muslims.
When U.S. Army Major Nidal Hasan perpetrated his very own massacre at Ft. Hood in 2009, he shouted “Allah Akbar” (or something like that), meaning that his was an act in the name of his god. He might as well have been wearing a turban, the better to display the symbolism involved, namely, that Muslims intend to set up a worldwide Caliphate, presumably cowing “mere mortals” into submission through their terrorist acts of mind-numbing insensitivity, especially regarding women and children. In Muslim-country, life is about the cheapest thing around.
This calls into question, notwithstanding all politically correct bromides to the contrary, whether or not an admitted Muslim should be allowed even to serve in the military, much less dress any old way. Hasan was/is the prime example of what any non-Muslim soldier would have to wonder about when a Muslim GI was at his back. Muslim Jihad “sleeper cells” are known to be in this country. What happens if a cell-member decides to pave his way to the 72 virgins by martyring himself while in the process of killing others? Hasan probably figured to be fatally shot on the spot but he lived, though he probably feels that some day he’ll make it to that paradise.
Turbans and/or scarves? Absolutely not! What happens if a Jewish soldier demands the right to wear a yarmulke instead of the proper uniform cap? What happens when a GI decides it’s against his religion (whether or not true) to wear any kind of headwear? Will Obama just “understand” and put out an executive order that all military folks can wear any old kind of hat/cap desired…or none at all? This administration operates perpetually in the silly-season, especially with respect to the military, of which it has virtually no understanding.
