If We Could Only Tell Them Apart

Bryan Fischer, AFA Director of Issues Analysis, of the American Family Association tries to convince us that after Major Hasan's attack on his fellow soldiers at Fort Hood Muslims should be barred from the U.S. military. Why? Because

It became evidently almost immediately that the mass murderer in yesterday's killing spree at Fort Hood was a Muslim who was motivated by jihadist impulses.

You could feel the impulses from here.

The reason is simple: the more devout a Muslim is, the more of a threat he is to national security. Devout Muslims, who accept the teachings of the Prophet as divinely inspired, believe it is their duty to kill infidels. Yesterday's massacre is living proof.  And yesterday's incident is not the first fragging incident involving a Muslim taking out his fellow U.S. soldiers.

There are 5 million to 7 million Muslims in the United States. There are between 10,000 and 20,000 Muslims in the U.S. military. You'd think that with all the "jihadist impulses" there would be more massacres, more so among the civilians. But he continues:

Of course, most U.S. Muslims don't shoot up their fellow soldiers.

No shit.

Fine. As soon as Muslims give us a foolproof way to identify their jihadis from their moderates, we'll go back to allowing them to serve.

Them danged Muslims all look alike. Hmmm, but the yellow stars were all used up. You'll have to use something else.

You tell us who the ones are that we have to worry about, prove you're right, and Muslims can once again serve. Until that day comes, we simply cannot afford the risk. You invent a jihadi-detector that works every time it's used, and we'll welcome you back with open arms.

Trust no Muslim. Watch every Muslim. Children, turn your parents in. Especially if you're Muslims. I thought we had a jihadi-detector. Isn't that an inclined board and a bucket of water?

This is not Islamophobia, it is Islamo-realism.

Of course it is.

While Christianity is a religion of peace, founded by the Prince of Peace, Islam is a religion of war and violence, founded by a man who routinely chopped the heads off his enemies, had sex with nine-year old girls, and made his wealth plundering merchant caravans.

Just look at how peaceful the Christian United States is.

And just as Christians are taught to imitate the life of Christ, so Muslims are taught to imitate the Prophet in all things. Yesterday, Nidal Malik Hasan was simply being a good Muslim.

Just as Christ taught, Fischer is turning the other cheek? And Hasan, imitating the Prophet, chopped the heads off his enemies, had sex with nine-year old girls, and plundered merchant caravans?

How do you talk to a person like Fischer?

There is a segment of the population that REALLY wants this to be some kind of terrorism. Which, by its strictest definition it is - as are all incidences of mass shooting. But most likely this is some sad, broken guy who got paid to listen to people tell him about killing other Muslims all day, had been trying to get out of the Army for a while, and finally just snapped. Sadly it happens all the time in this country.

Also, I love that some media outlets are saying that because he used a very high powered pistol it makes it more likely it was terrorism. Maybe stricter gun laws might have prevented him from getting his hands on a high-powered pistol with a 30-round clip, but since there is a massive amount of overlap between the "Muslim plot" crowd and the Second Amendment people it wouldn't do much good to point it out.
