In the wake of the Fort Hood massacre, Americans are asking many questions. It’s been called a “tragedy” by some, as though it were an unavoidable natural catastrophe, but the fact remains that the bloodbath only has one suspect: Major Nidal Malik Hasan. What were his motives? Stress, as has been suggested? Or something more sinister, like jihad? Family Security Matters’ Pam Meister caught up with FSM contributing editor Dave Gaubatz, one of the authors of Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld that’s Trying to Islamize America for his opinions and insights on what could well be a watershed event in the fight against Islamic terror.
Family Security Matters: We're being told not to jump to conclusions about Maj. Hasan's motives for the killings. Based on your experience, what does your instinct tell you?
Dave Gaubatz: We should have been jumping to conclusions several months ago in regards to Maj. Hasan and his erratic actions. Being proactive in this case did nothing more than allow Maj. Hasan to (allegedly) kill innocent men, women, and children. The worst mistake the FBI does in every instance such as this is to inform the American public there are no ties to terrorism. This is giving the American people a false sense of security and it is no more than a lie by law enforcement. A tragic shooting can never be resolved within a few minutes and no motive for the attack should ever be ruled out until all the evidence has been fully evaluated.
FSM: According to some relatives, Maj. Hasan was harassed because he is a Muslim. But according to Dr. Val Finnell, one of Hasan's classmates in a 2007-08 master's public health program at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland, said that at a class presentation by public health students, at which topics like dry cleaning chemicals and house mold were discussed, Hasan talked about U.S. military actions as a war on Islam. Hasan made clear he was a "vociferous opponent" of U.S. wars in Muslim countries, Finnell said. "He made himself a lightning rod for things," Finnell said. "No one picked on him because he was a Muslim." Based on your knowledge of the military, would you agree or disagree that Muslims were more likely to be harassed than others?
DG: The liberal media and their supporters will jump on the bandwagon to try and find excuses for Maj. Hasan. Maj. Hasan was an officer in the U.S. Army and few enlisted personnel would come close to trying to intimidate an officer. It is a simple court martial offense. Maj. Hasan studied the violent ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood that calls for killing innocent anyone who oppresses Islam. This ideology is taught on U.S. military bases and in mosques near the installations. [Editor’s note: A new report indicates that Hasan attended the controversial Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Great Falls, Virginia, in 2001 at the same time as two of the September 11th terrorists.]
“Islam wishes to destroy all States and Governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam regardless of the country or the Nation which rules it. Islam requires the earth—not just a portion, but the whole planet. Towards this end, Islam wishes to press into service all forces which can bring about a revolution and a composite term for the use of all these forces is ‘Jihad’.

War On Terror: The Fort Hood terrorist is being portrayed as an "anomaly," an "aberration," a "lone wolf." Sadly, he's just one of many examples of jihadist traitors in the ranks of the military.
Together they form a dangerous Fifth Column, and the Pentagon — thanks to institutionalized political correctness — is doing next to nothing to root them out .
Instead, brass are actively recruiting Muslim soldiers — whose ranks have swelled to more than 15,000 — and catering to their faith by erecting mosques even at Marine headquarters in Quantico, Va. More, they're hiring Muslim chaplains endorsed by radical Islamic front groups, who convert and radicalize soldiers. more @investors.com via @FSM
