The U.S. Government: Blind to Jihad

They knew. Two years before the Fort Hood jihad massacre, the Army knew
of jihadis in its ranks and did nothing.

Investigative reporter Bill Gertz has revealed: “Almost two years before
the deadly Fort Hood shooting by a radicalized Muslim officer, the U.S.
Army was explicitly warned that jihadism — Islamic holy war — was a
serious problem and threat to personnel in the U.S., according to
participants at a major Army-sponsored conference.”

Over 350 Army officials involved in counterterror efforts attended this
Feb. 2008 conference. One of the speakers, Lt. Colonel Joseph Myers,
explains the topic of his lecture: “I noted that because of our lack of
understanding of Islamic doctrines, Islamic jihad and my view that our
counterintelligence function is broken, outdated, and being usurped in
some cases by public affairs and equal opportunity officials, we were
going to get soldiers killed in America, on our own bases for that
professional ignorance.”

And that’s just what happened at Fort Hood.

What makes this so profoundly disturbing is that it shows that senior
level officials knew. They were explicitly warned that jihadism was a
serious problem and a threat to military personnel and civilians alike.
And still they did nothing. Not only did they do nothing, but they left
known jihadis like Nidal Malik Hasan, who murdered 13 Americans at Fort
Hood in his jihad attack of November 2009, in place and unsupervised.

They knew. And still they sacrificed Americans.

Major Hasan’s June 2007 power-point presentation, which he presented to
fellow doctors on grand rounds instead of giving the lecture on
psychiatry they had been expecting, is accurate as a description of how
mainstream Muslims have always understood Islamic jihad. It reflects the
absolute rules of Islam that have been established by scholarly
consensus. It is an accurate religious document, reflecting accurately
Islam’s absolute law. Hasan got nothing wrong.

Christianity does not teach its adherents jihad. The objective of
Christianity or Judaism is not rooted in the murder of non-believers and
the absolute mandate to murder, maim, and destroy until the world lives
under their religious law. That is Islam. That is its goal. Muslims
know this. That is why you do not see blowback and protest and outrage
from the Muslims against the horrible unrelenting Islamic attacks across
the world. That is why you do not hear Muslims calling out for the
violence prescribed in the Quran to be expunged.

Islamic tradition says that the end times won’t come until Muslims
murder Jews wholesale: religiously mandated genocide.

If I know this, why don’t our senior level officials at the Pentagon,
the FBI, and the CIA know this?

Last month the Pentagon released its report on Hasan’s Fort Hood
massacre. The report described the massacre as a systemic breakdown
within the military that permitted this Muslim Army psychiatrist to
advance through the ranks despite concerns from his superiors about his
anti-American, pro-jihad statements and actions.

There is nothing wacky or extreme or radical about Hasan’s devotion to
Islam. What is wacky, extreme and suicidal is the Pentagon’s review of
Hasan’s jihad without mentioning or addressing Islam, and the objective
of our mortal enemy — to establish Dar al Islam in Israel, Europe, and
America. Nowhere does the Pentagon’s Fort Hood report discuss jihad and
the ideology that mandates and commands good Muslims to wage jihad
against non-Muslims.

This is surrender. And it isn’t limited just to the Fort Hood report.
Did you know in the FBI’s Counter-Terrorism Manual, the word jihad is
not to be found? Not once.

And so they knew about the jihadis in the ranks, and did nothing.
