Maybe I Misunderstand The Word Peace

How does this –

“Islam is a much more peaceful and tolerant religion than it is an aggressive religion,” he said. “I don’t believe that Islam allows me to operate in any kind of warfare at all, including the U.S. military and any war it partakes in. I believe that our first duty as a Muslim is to serve God.” – Army PFC Naser Jason Abdo last year on why he needed conscientious objector status to avoid deploying to SW Asia.

Make sense in light of this –

Killeen police arrested Abdo, 21, on Wednesday after a gun store employee tipped them that Abdo’s behavior raised red flags when he purchased six pounds of smokeless gunpowder and other supplies.

FBI investigators who searched his hotel room found enough material for two bombs, a Defense Department official said. – CNN story today on arrest of Adbo

This happened in Killeen, TX, home to Fort Hood, where MAJ Nidal Malik Hasan shot and killed 13 people two years ago.  Maybe CAIR and all the others can explain to me their definition of the word peace – as in “Religion of Peace”.  Although it goes without saying that not all Muslims are violent extremists, far too many are to dismiss them as aberrations.  More importantly, even the Muslim apologists busy calling Islam a religion of peace cannot find the will or courage to denounce the violence.  The Norway shootings by a non-Muslim (the meme of him being a Conservative Christian has already been exhaustively debunked) are the proverbial exception that proves the rule.  It was news that he was not a Muslim precisely because it was so unusual.

Of course, it is one thing to grab the low hanging fruit of pointing out Muslim extremism.  The key is finding a solution to the very real security problems presented by jihadist Muslims.  I think that first and foremost, all of Islam is stained by these activities, as any other group would be stained by repeated actions of its members.  It is not the responsibility of the non-Muslim world to absolve any or all members of that religion.  It is the members of the religion that must atone for the sins of its followers and take actions to prevent them in the future.  If the supposed moderate and peaceful Muslims will not stand up and denounce these activities, they should expect to be seen as complicit.  Second, we cannot let political correctness blind us to the dangers.  A certain demographic commits most terror acts, that demographic needs to be more carefully examined – especially considering the  unwillingness of a majority of that groups’ members to take a stand against the violence committed by their fellows.

With all of the other nonsense going on in D.C., especially the budget battle, it is too easy for many to forget that there is a  segment of the world population that spends its days contemplating the best way to kill us.  We cannot allow complacency to make that task all too easy for them.  It is the self-destructive political correctness that allowed MAJ Hasan to continue to be in a position to cause destruction even after many around him knew where his loyalties lay.  It is the same PC attitudes that allowed the media to fawningly accept Abdo’s “religion of peace” conscientious objector rhetoric last year, rhetoric proven false today not because the expensive intelligence and law-enforcement agencies tracked him down, but because a Texas gun store owner noticed him acting strangely and buying explosives – and if that owner noticed it more so because Abdo is Muslim, I am okay with that.  And I am sure the intended victims (American Soldiers and their families) whose lives were saved by the arrest of this man don’t have a problem with that either.

Asked how close Abdo may have come to pulling off an attack, Baldwin said, “I can tell you that we would probably be here today giving you a different briefing had he not been stopped.” – CNN story on arrest

  1. There was supposedly all this Muslim outreach in the aftermath of 9/11. Don’t remember any fatwahs being issued against Al Quaida. The Muslim Botherhood is actively pursuing insinuating sharia in the US, through front groups, including the Muslim Student Association, and we all know about radicalization in the prisons. Why did it take ten years for the Peter King hearings? FDR put American citizens in CONCENTRATION CAMPS, for crap’s sake. This is exactly why the leftists have spent two generations revising history or blocking it’s being taught altogether.

  2. If the base commander really did recommend a UCMJ capital trial, far as I know the case is open and shut with all kinds of credible witnesses to the multiple executions. We all know what the outcome should be and how the military should handle execution of the sentence. I am gearing myself up now for the firestorm of MSM Lib/Amnesty International sympathy and resistance movement to Army anti-Muslim cruelty and its failure to understand the religion of Peace. They will try to put the Army on trial, not MAJ Hassan.

  3. I think this is a homophone issue. I think they meant a religion of pieces, as in what happens after they have their way with us.

    And please don’t think that little comment means I take this lightly. I am absolutely chagrined that there is still debate as to whether or not radical Islam is a threat to us internally as well as externally. We will either address this in a sane manner or we will lose all our freedoms and live with evil among us.

    Witness what is going on in Londonistan if you wonder what I mean by that.

  4. I am thankful there is a place like UP where we can call things as they are. The simple truth is, some European countries like Norway and France have been at near -0- native population replacement birthrate for some time. The good life of no commitments has its costs down the road! Muslims who are proliferating there and consuming welfare services, will stay and flat own those countries in the next one to two generations, tops. Those who know, know one of the reasons France did not support us in the second Iraq war was, the French were afraid Paris, Rheims and Lyons would burn by indigenous jihadi youth rioters.Don’t hold your breath for the MSM to report any of this.
