I weep for the wounded and dead at Fort Hood — except for the gunman, military psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan (update: he is alive).
But when Muslims are allowed to serve in our military, despite the fact that the Koran commands them to deceive and kill non-Muslims, yet lesbians and gays like Arabic-interpreter Lt. Dan Choi are barred from serving and witch-hunted out of the services, with Obama’s full support in practice despite his lip-service-only opposition to “don’t ask, don’t tell,” I have to remark on how insane it is to embrace your sworn enemy into your military and elevate him in the name of tolerance, while you stigmatize and cast out loyal and patriotic homosexuals who freely pledge to their country their last full measure of devotion.
Thanks to the commenters at Hot Air: The gunman’s photo is here, and his military record is at This Ain’t Hell — no religion is listed. The post at Hot Air linked above now also has video clips from Fox News, including an interview with Hasan’s cousin.
Update, 11/8/09: Welcome, Daily Pundit readers, and thank you, Daily Pundit for the link and most of all for the headline, “i think cynthia has a good point.”
