US Army Major was on Homeland Security Panel advising President Obama
Nidal Hasan, the US Army major who went on a shooting rampage at Fort Hood, yelled “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great!) as he opened fire on his army colleagues. Earlier that day he handed out new Korans to neighbours. (Associated Press: Neighbor: Fort Hood suspect emptied his apartment.)
Oh yes, it might be of interest that Hasan was also on the Homeland Security Policy Institute’s presidential transition task force in 2008.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families and friends. Our thoughts and prayers also go out to those good people around the world who happen to be Muslims. I read one estimate that only three percent of Muslims can be considered “Jihadists” in the terrorist sense of the word. Another estimate I read by a member of the Royal Family in Saudi Arabia said (I think) seven percent.
So let’s use the three percent of a billion Muslims… that makes about 30 million or so of the world’s Muslims as potential hosts for the deadly virus called Sudden Jihad Syndrome.
At the low end of the scale.
