Pamela Geller, Big Government: Obama’s Rush to Judgment


Did you read my latest for Big Government? Obama's Rush to Judgment:

Obama wants us to ignore that Hasan went to a mosque where a
jihadist imam preached hatred of America. The same imam was “spiritual
adviser” for three of the 9/11 hijackers who attacked America on Sept
11, 2001. Obama would rather we didn’t know that when Hasan was asked
his nationality, he didn’t identify himself as an American, but as a
Palestinian. Obama doesn’t want us to rush to judgment about how Hasan
spoke approvingly of the shooting death by an Islamic jihad terrorist
of a Little Rock Army recruiter in June. Obama doesn’t us to draw any
conclusions from how Hasan reportedly was heard saying, “maybe people
should strap bombs on themselves and go to Times Square.”

But Obama says, don’t rush to judgment.

The President was not so circumspect when he spoke out about
Professor Henry Louis Gates’ arrest by Cambridge, Massachusetts police
Sgt. James Crowley. Obama incited hatred on national television,
rushing to judgment against a white cop who was just doing his job.
Obama tried to incite racial division and wrongly criticized the police
during a news conference: “But I think it’s fair to say, No. 1, any of
us would be pretty angry; No. 2, that the Cambridge police acted
stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they
were in their own home; and, No. 3 … that there’s a long history in
this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law
enforcement disproportionately.” The incident, Obama said, showed “how
race remains a factor in this society.”

A few days later, after an avalanche of criticism, Obama
backtracked: “In my choice of words,” he said, “I unfortunately, I
think, gave an impression that I was maligning the Cambridge Police
Department or Crowley specifically.” But he did not apologize for his
rush to judgment.

Apparently jumping to conclusions is wrong only when it leads to the
conclusion that there has been another Islamic terror attack on
American soil.

But to come to that conclusion really doesn’t involve any “rush to
judgment” at all. What we know about Nidal Hasan makes that abundantly
clear. He wrote “Allah” on his door, according to a neighbor, in
Arabic. “Allah” on the door. During his postgraduate work at the
Uniformed Service University of the Health Sciences, he was reprimanded
for preaching Islam to his patients and other doctors. He drew
attention from law enforcement officials with Internet postings under
his name that praised suicide bombing, saying that their intention was
to “save Muslims by killing enemy soldiers,” and that “if one suicide
bomber can kill 100 enemy soldiers because they were caught off guard
that would be considered a strategic victory.”
