Yes, mass killer Nidal Hasan is a Muslim. Check out the video below, showing Hasan buying coffee at a convenience store several hours before the shooting, dressed in Muslim garb.
As I type this, The PC Schoolmarms at McClatchy still haven't reported his religious affiliation. The McClatchy piece on Hasan is here -- nothing about Hasan being a Muslim, and nothing about reports from several sources that Hasan was sympathetic to attacks on the US. There is no excuse -- the McClatchy piece quotes from the interview Hasan's cousin gave to FOX News -- in the interview the cousin stated Hasan was a Muslim from birth.

I Told You So: The Muslim Doctor Terrorists Are No Surprise; Revealing Muslim Doctors’ Oath
It’s the doctors, stupid! I’m not sure why everyone is so shocked that all eight suspects in the attempted British terrorist attacks of last week are Medical Doctors (and that ALL eight suspects are tied to the British national healthcare system, the NHS). Readers of this site aren’t surprised by the doctor terrorists.
As you’ll recall, in my mid-May column, “When Your Doctor is a Muslim: Medical Terrorism Comes to America,” I wrote about many of the doctors who’ve been top-ranking terrorists and involved in terrorist plots.
Also, of note, I’ve complained about the special visas available for foreign alien MDs and other medical personnel to practice in America in small towns and at universities.
DC sniper calls himself 'this innocent black man' (AP)
RICHMOND, Va. — Attorneys for John Allen Muhammad released a May 2008 letter on Wednesday in which the mastermind of the deadly 2002 sniper attacks in the Washington, D.C., area proclaims his innocence.
The rambling, handwritten letter was made available because of requests for a statement from Muhammad, his attorneys wrote on the Web page of their law firm. The letter was filed in federal court in connection with Muhammad's unsuccessful attempt to block his execution, the attorneys said.
When Your Doctor is a Muslim: Medical Terrorism Comes to America
**** IMPORTANT UPDATE, 07/05/07: Please read my 07/03/07 updated list of terrorist doctors and information on the scary Oath of Muslim Doctors. ****
Sometimes–so many times–diversity is not what it’s cracked up to be.
Just ask Joseph Applebaum. Well, you could ask him. But you won’t get an answer. He’s dead.
And he’s dead because he was a Jew, and his doctor is a Muslim and grad of “Ayman Al-Zawahiri” Medical School. But Applebaum wasn’t denied treatment for being a Jew in Egypt. Or elsewhere in the Muslim world.
It happened right here on U.S. soil. In Chicago. As Muslim doctors continue to flood into the country under lax immigration laws, hospitals around the country have acquired their fair share of them.
Many hospitals in the Detroit area are now dominated by Muslim doctors and have been for some time
Cops Arrest Man in ‘Westernized’ Daughter Case [Ran Auto Over 20 Year-Old Old Daughter muslim honor killing] AP
PEORIA, Ariz. - An Iraqi immigrant has been arrested in Georgia for allegedly running down his daughter because she was becoming "too Westernized," police in a Phoenix suburb say.
Police in Peoria released few details, but said 48-year-old Faleh Almaleki was in custody. They would not say where he was being held.
Terror suspect happy at deadly Australian fires (gulf-times.com)
Among evidence released by the court was a transcript of an intercepted telephone call in which Aweys allegedly describes Australians as “filthy people” and thanks Allah for February’s deadly wildfires.
In March police intercepted a call to a friend in which he allegedly noted that wildfires had broken out across the country “and all were happy”.
“The whole nation is coming down … the economy comes down first,” he said in reference to the global financial crisis, before commenting on the drought and Melbourne’s water shortage.
“By Allah, factories shutting down, nothing here mate, nothing barely anything,” he told the friend.
“By Allah, I’ve never seen Melbourne like this, then fire coming to them, no water, the water storage is empty.
“They are copping hard man. Thanks to Allah, thanks to Allah.”
Lawyers for the accused argued against the release of the transcript and other police evidence, which includes footage of one of the men looking at the army base.
Obama offers millions in Muslim technology fund (breitbart.com)
The White House Friday highlighted a new multi-million-dollar technology fund for Muslim nations, following a pledge made by President Barack Obama in his landmark speech to the Islamic world.
The White House said the US Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) had issued a call for proposals for the fund, which will provide financing of between 25 and 150 million dollars for selected projects and funds.
The Global Technology and Innovation Fund will "catalyze and facilitate private sector investments" throughout Asia, the Middle East and Africa, the White House said in a statement.
Eligible projects would advance economic opportunity and create jobs in areas like technology, education, telecoms, media, business services and clean technology, the White House said.
OPIC said sample projects could help foster the development of new computer technology or telecommunications businesses, or widen access to broadband Internet services.
Obama Appoints Muslim to High-level Position in Department of Homeland Security (Chron Watch)
Purported non Muslim Barack Hussein Obama made a presidential appointment of Muslim Los Angeles Deputy Mayor Arif Alikhan for a top job at the federal Department of Homeland Security.
In his new job, Arif Alikhan will be Assistant Secretary for the Office of Policy Development at the Department of Homeland Security.
Alikhan has been Deputy Mayor of Los Angeles--in charge of public safety for the city.
Why Muslim Alikhan at the Department of Homeland Security you might ask?
DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano said Alikhan’s “broad and impressive array of experience in national security, emergency preparedness, and counterterrorism will make him an asset”--yes, but on behalf of the U.S. or Muslims?
I am not sure what she is talking about and she probably doesn’t know either. www.indiawest.com/readmore.aspx?id=1132&Sid=1
Alikhan says a big part of his job will be fostering communication between agencies. Alikhan, like Obama, also wants to help improve America’s image with Muslims around the world. He will now set policy on security at the highest levels of the federal government.
But what policies has the new Assistant Secretary embraced?
During his years in Los Angeles, Alikhan was responsible for derailing the Police Department’s plan to monitor activities within the Los Angeles Muslim community, where numerous radical mosques and madrassas existed, and where some of the 9/11 hijackers had received support from local residents.
Alikhan is strongly anti-Israel; he has referred to the terrorist organization Hezbollah as a “liberation movement.” Hezbollah is on the U.S. official terrorist list while being an affiliate of the Muslim Public Affairs Council.
Alikhan also opposed President George W. Bush’s prosecution of the war on Islamic terror.
Terrorist Who Planned Mall Bombing Is a Religion Teacher (GatewayPundit)
Tarek Mehanna, who was arrested at his home Wednesday morning, is a teacher of middle-schoolers in Massashusetts. Mehanna teaches science and religion.
Tarek Mehanna of Sudbury, Massachusetts, is seen in this image from a video footage taken in Boston, Massachusetts, on February 11. (Reuters)
The 27-year-old Mr. Mehanna taught science and religion to middle-schoolers at Alhuda Academy in the Boston area.
Israel National News reported:
The arrest of a Massachusetts teacher of religion in a Muslim school for planning mass murders at malls and targeting American soldiers overseas has caused shock throughout the US. The suspect, an Egyptian-American named Tarek Mehanna, was arraigned in court Wednesday.
He was arrested and charged last year for lying about his ties with Daniel Maldonado, a Muslim convert who wanted to join al-Qaeda in Somalia.
Prosecutors said that Mehanna also intended to kill, maim or kidnap two senior executives in the White House, both of whom no longer are in office. No other details of the targets were released except that they never were in any danger.
One of his co-conspirators is an American now living in Syria…
Muslim leaders and the Muslim man-on-the-street have expressed fears of a backlash and have argued that Muslim terrorists are a minority and are not a product of Islam.
Boston Terror Suspect: Just Another ‘Typical American Kid’ with Terror Aspirations (Pajamas Media)
By all accounts, Tarek Mehanna seems an unlikely aspiring terrorist. He grew up in the Boston suburb of Sudbury, went to private schools, and, following in his father’s footsteps, earned a Ph.D. in pharmacology. Given all the advantages of wealth, education, and freedom afforded in America, Tarek Mehanna had a bright future.
But a federal complaint against Mehanna describes aspirations of killing former President George W. Bush, mowing down shoppers with automatic weapons at a mall, and failed efforts at joining the ranks of terrorists abroad.
A former religious teacher described him as a “fun-loving, ordinary, typical American kid.”
Mehanna would bring comics to class and was a big fan of Superman. A friend laughed at the notion that Mehanna could ever be a terrorist.
At his court appearance on Wednesday, Mehanna’s father claimed that the charges against his son were “a show.”
An online acquaintance of Mehanna argued with me, saying that the charges had no merit. ...
Religious affiliation? Like I am a christian who has not been in a church for years. Can't help what happened at birth. No doubt Timothy McVeigh was a 'Christian' as are those who shoot up doctors and centers where abortions are performed. There are millions of 'muslims who are as lackadaisical as us millions of christians, who really don't care to practice.
You'll get far more respect when you quit using knee-jerk labels as if that explains something horrific (or even not horrific)
New Brighton wife tried to kill husband over Muslim principles, cops allege (silive.com)
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — A 37-year-old wife from New Brighton tried to slit her husband’s throat as he slept because he was not the devout Muslim she believed she married, and pressured her to eat pork and drink alcohol, authorities allege.
In a rambling, four-page handwritten confession, Rabia Sarwar laid out the “mental and emotional cruelty” that led to her trying to kill her husband, Susan Wagner High School teacher Sheikh Naseem, early yesterday morning, a law enforcement source said.
“I tried my best to cut his throat,” Ms. Sarwar admitted, according to court papers. Except Naseem woke up during the attempt, and took the knife from her, authorities said.
According to Ms. Sarwar’s attorney, Joseph Licitra, Naseem “was a cruel person, he preyed on her.”
The day before the incident, “he literally threatened to have her parents mutilated,” Licitra said.
The way the law enforcement source describes it, Ms. Sarwar, who is Pakistani, told investigators that Naseem, who is half-Pakistani, had presented himself as a devout Muslim before the two had wed five months ago.
But after the marriage, she discovered more about him, she told investigators — before meeting her, he had only dated non-Muslims, and he considered Salman Rushdie to be one of his favorite authors.
Rushdie’s book, “The Satanic Verses,” was reviled by hard-line Muslims for what they considered an unflattering portrayal of the prophet Mohammed, and in 1989, Iran’s Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini issued a fatwa against Rushdie calling for Muslims worldwide to kill him.
Detroit Jihad (Frontpagemagazine)
Luqman Ameen Abdullah, the imam of Detroit’s Masjid Al-Haqq (Mosque of Truth), was killed Wednesday in a shootout with FBI agents.
The agents were trying to arrest him on charges of conspiracy, receipt of stolen goods, firearms offenses and more. Agents also arrested eight mosque members; then Thursday, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police caught Abdullah’s son, Mujahid Carswell. Two other accused jihadists also fled, and have not yet been found.
According to the indictment, in his mosque in Detroit Luqman Abdullah was preaching “offensive jihad” and the establishment of a Sharia state in North America.
This sovereign Isamic state would be ruled by Islamic law – and by the apparent godfather of Abdullah’s movement, Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin. Al-Amin is the former Black Panther and convert to Islam who gained fame under the name H. Rap Brown.
Al-Amin is now serving a life sentence for murdering two police officers, while his disciples, like Luqman Abdullah, carry on the message he articulated so memorably in the 1960s:
“If America don’t come around, we’re gonna burn it down.”
In the spirit of his mentor, Abdullah has told his flock: “America must fall.” He has encouraged the Muslims in his mosque to support Hizballah, the Taliban and Osama bin Laden.
He exhorted them to bestir themselves to pious deeds: “We should be figuring out how to fight the Kuffar” – that is, unbelievers. “We got to take out the U.S. government. The U.S. government is nothing but Kuffars.”
Muslim unrest hits US homes: Honor killings are on the rise (NY Post)
In what may be the first recorded instance of a Muslim wife attempting to murder her husband for not being pious enough, a Staten Island woman was charged this week with attempted murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon. Rabia Sarwar, a 37-year-old Muslim, said she did it because her husband, a 41-year-old Pakistani native, enjoyed booze and pork and wanted her to dress in revealing clothes. (She held fabric over her face and threw a shawl over her head before leaving court on Thursday.)
While the Sarwar case is sensational by dint of the role-reversal and the method of attempted murder (throat-slitting), it’s also pedestrian: Over the past two years, there have been about a dozen attempted or successful honor killings committed in the US.
Last week in Arizona, an Iraqi-born man tried to kill his 20-year-old daughter because she wanted out of her arranged marriage; he escaped.
Lynnwood beating death called 'honor killing' (AP)
EVERETT, Wash. - A 61-year-old man accused of beating his brother to death in Lynnwood told Snohomish County sheriff's detectives it was an honor killing to avenge an insulting remark.
Mehdi M. Matin says more than 20 years ago his brother uttered words about his bride-to-be so terrible the wedding was called off. Both men are from Afghanistan.
Matin was visiting his brother Monday when he repeated the remark.
Did Black Panther make secret White House visit?
Malik Zulu Shabazz, national chairman of the radical New Black Panther Party, refused to confirm or deny to WND whether he visited the White House since President Obama took office, despite his name appearing on a recent administration disclosure.
Shabazz' namesake was among the 110names and 481 visits released by the White House on Friday as part of the Obama administration's so-called volunteer disclosure policy.
The names were just a fraction of the hundreds of thousands of visitors who have gone through the White House's doors since January.
Among the famous names that stood out on the brief list were Shabazz, Jeremiah Wright and William Ayers.
Fort Hood jihad shooter was disciplined for Islamic proselytizing (jihadwatch.org)
CAIR has been working overtime (they're quoted in this article also), and the "Muslims fear backlash" victimhood machine is in high gear.
No one, of course, is questioning whether there might be any connection between this man's devoutly held Islam and the massacre today. After all, how could there be any such connection? Islam is a Religion of Peace™!
A source tells NPR's Joseph Shapiro that Hasan was put on probation early in his postgraduate work at the Uniformed Service University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Md. He was disciplined for proselytizing about his Muslim faith with patients and colleagues, according to the source, who worked with him at the time.
NOW MUSLIMS DEMAND: GIVE US FULL SHARIA LAW (UK) Daily Express
A RADICAL Muslim group sparked outrage last night as it launched a massive campaign to impose sharia law on Britain.
The fanatical group Islam4UK has announced plans to hold a potentially incendiary rally in London later this month.
And it is calling for a complete upheaval of the British legal system, its officials and legislation.
Members have urged Muslims from all over Britain to converge on the capital on October 31 for a procession to demand the full implementation of sharia law.
CAIR Tries To Plant Muslim Interns On Key Hill Staffs (Human Events)
The Muslim activist organization CAIR was attempting to plant Muslim interns in the offices of congressmen who are on committees affecting US national security, a CAIR memo dated 13 January 2007 reveals.
The CAIR memo says, in part:
“We will focus on influencing congressmen responsible for policy that directly impacts the American Muslim community. (For example, the judiciary, intelligence, and homeland security committees.) We will develop national initiatives such as a lobby day and placing Muslim interns in Congressional offices.”
The memo, revealed this morning in a press conference held by Reps. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.), John Shadegg, Paul Broun (R-Ga.) and Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) can be read in full here (pdf).
The members joined in demanding that the Justice Department and the IRS investigate CAIR (the IRS because CAIR is a Section 501 (c ) (3) tax-exempt organization which is prohibited from lobbying.) They also asked the Congressional Sergeant of Arms to investigate and report whether any of the CAIR interns were actually planted in the House.
CAIR’s activist agenda -- known for years -- has been extensively reported by HUMAN EVENTS and our columnist Robert Spencer. The organization’s claim that it is a “civil rights organization” has been disproven so many times as to make it risible.
As Spencer reported in August 2007, “Several CAIR officials, including its Community Affairs Director, Bassem Khafagi; a Board member of CAIR’s Texas chapter, Ghassan Elashi; CAIR’s communications specialist and civil rights coordinator, Randall Todd Ismail Royer; and fundraiser Rabih Haddad have been convicted of various terrorism-related offenses.”
The Justice Department labeled CAIR an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation case. In November 2008, HLF and five of its leaders were convicted by a Dallas federal jury on charges of providing material support (more than $12 million) to Hamas
House Republicans accuse Muslim group of trying to plant spies (The Hill)
House Republicans accuse Muslim group of trying to plant spies By Jordy Yager - 10/14/09 11:01 AM ET
Four House Republicans are accusing a Muslim advocacy group of trying to plant spies.
Republican members of the Congressional Anti-Terrorism Caucus say the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), tried to plant “spies” within key national security committees to shape legislative policy in its favor.
Reps. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.), John Shadegg (R-Ariz.) and Paul Broun (R-Ga.), and Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) - citing the recently released book, “Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld that's Conspiring to Islamize America” – called for the House Sergeant at Arms to investigate whether CAIR had been successful in placing interns on key committees.
The lawmakers are specifically focused on the House Homeland Security Committee, Intelligence Committee, and Judiciary Committee.
“If an organization is connected to or supports terrorists [and] is running influence operations or planting spies in key national security related offices I think this needs to be made known,” Broun said. “So I join my colleagues here today in calling for action.”
Army: Suspect said `Allahu Akbar!' before shooting (AP)
FORT HOOD, Texas – The base commander at Fort Hood says soldiers who witnessed a shooting rampage that left 13 people dead reported that the gunman shouted "Allahu Akbar!" before opening fire at the Texas post.
Lt. Gen. Robert Cone told NBC's "Today" show on Friday that suspected shooter, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, made the comment, which is Arabic for "God is great!" before the rampage Thursday that also left 30 people wounded.
Police raid shooting suspect's Killeen apartment (Handed out Korans the morning of his attack!)
Killeen Daily Herald
Bell County SWAT teams barricaded and evacuated a downtown Killeen apartment complex where Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan lived before authorities say he killed 13 people and injured 30 more during a massacre at Fort Hood Thursday.
In the morning, neighbors said Hasan handed Qurans and donated his furniture to anyone who would take it.
Neighbors described Hasan as a quiet man who began wearing "Arabic clothing" in recent weeks. Edward Windsor, a neighbor, never suspected Hasan was in the Army.
Hasan's rank surprised Windsor who would never have imagined an officer with a rank of major would have lived in an apartment that rents for $350 and houses soldiers ranked as private first class.
Islamic states pushing for 'global blasphemy law'
A resolution pending in the United Nations in one form or another since 1999 is being pushed again by the Islamic nations that originally proposed the plan they called "Defamation of Islam," which would ban criticism of the beliefs of Muhammad worldwide.
The proposal, sought by the 57 members of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, now has be renamed "Defamation of Religions," but officials with Open Doors, an international Christian ministry operating in many of those Islamic states, is warning about its potential impact.
Our Clueless Commander in Chief
Twelve soldiers were murdered in cold blood at Fort Hood, Texas. Thirty others were wounded.
Our Commander in Chief calls a press conference and begins it with a long thanks to the Department of the Interior and Native Americans who just concluded a conference and then gives a good natured ''shout out'' to an attendee , all with a studied nonchalance, before he even mentions the outrage on our military base.
Linda Chavez calls it, "Obama's pet goat moment."
Hasan Is Devout Muslim PATTERICO
All links come from Allahpundit’s excellent reporting.
The Washington Post is reporting that Hasan is a “very devout” Muslim:
He had been a “very devout” worshiper at the Muslim Community Center in Silver Spring, attending prayers at least once a day, often in his Army fatigues, said Faizul Khan, a former imam there.
The WaPo and other outlets are confirming the earlier reports that Hasan was strongly opposed to the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts and was agitated about his upcoming deployment to one of those wars. The Post also says:
“He came to mosque one or two times to see if there were any suitable girls to marry,” Khan said. “I don’t think he ever had a match, because he had too many conditions. He wanted a girl who was very religious, prays five times a day.”…
A co-worker at Walter Reed said Hasan would not allow his photo to be taken with female co-workers, which became an issue during Christmas season when employees often took group photos. Co-workers would find a solo photo of Hasan and post it on the bulletin board without his permission.
A former neighbor of Hasan’s in Silver Spring, Md., told Fox News he lived there for two years with his brother and had the word “Allah” on the door.
He was reportedly handing out copies of the Koran this morning:
News Channel 25’s Henry Rosoff has learned the Hasan, was giving all of his furniture along with copies of the Qu’ ran to neighbors Thursday morning.
This is all an important part of who this shooter is.
And L.A. Times readers still don’t even know he is a Muslim.
When we decide you need to know, that’s when you’ll know.
OXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Vince Wilfork had a quick reaction when he first lined up against Miami's strange formation: Huh?
"It was shocking," New England's nose tackle said. "We really didn't know what they were doing."
The Dolphins were doing the wildcat, unpacking it for the first time when they visited Foxborough in the third game last season. It worked very well: four touchdowns in six plays in a 38-13 win that ended the Patriots' NFL record 21-game regular-season winning streak.
On Sunday, running back Ronnie Brown returns to the scene of the unveiling, the field where he ran for three touchdowns and threw for another from that alignment against a coach, Bill Belichick, who prides himself on preparing his players for whatever they may encounter.
But Brown isn't indulging in nostalgia.
I may be wrong, but “moderate” muslims cannot or will not even stand up to the radicals here in this country, much less in Islamic countries. Wonder why?
You are correct that “moderate” mohammedans will not stand up to the radicals among them.
To answer your question “why”, it’s for the same reason that the German people who weren’t Nazis did nothing to stop the Nazis.
It’s the same reason that Russians today pine for the days of Josef Stalin.
Will there be a time when we actually do brand Muslims as terrorists? I am at that point. If it were say, Mormons that kept bombing buildings and killing folks, wouldn't we be more suspicious of them?
At what point do we just fricking become fed up and do what may be needed. Does that make me some kind of 'ist' like one of you liberal a-holes are prepared to call me? So be it.
4:44 AM- Are you suggesting that not labeling them as 'Muslim' or the sort is better?
Don't be a chicken#$&*!
Call them what they are.
Well, judging from his outfit in that video, he was either a Muslim or a member of the KKK. I am sure if he was a member of the KKK the main stream media would have noticed it by now.
Unless, of course, his name was Byrd.
