RALPH PETERS: Fort Hood’s 9/11 – New York Post

November 6, 2009

Fort Hood’s 9/11


On Thursday afternoon, a radicalized Muslim US Army officer shouting “Allahu Akbar!” committed the worst act of terror on American soil since 9/11. And no one wants to call it an act of terror or associate it with Islam.

What cowards we are. Political correctness killed those patriotic Americans at Ft. Hood as surely as the Islamist gunman did. And the media treat it like a case of non-denominational shoplifting.

This was a terrorist act. When an extremist plans and executes a murderous plot against our unarmed soldiers to protest our efforts to counter Islamist fanatics, it’s an act of terror. Period.

When the terrorist posts anti-American hate-speech on the Web; apparently praises suicide bombers and uses his own name; loudly criticizes US policies; argues (as a psychiatrist, no less) with his military patients over the worth of their sacrifices; refuses, in the name of Islam, to be photographed with female colleagues; lists his nationality as “Palestinian” in a Muslim spouse-matching program, and parades around central Texas in a fundamentalist playsuit — well, it only seems fair to call this terrorist an “Islamist terrorist.”

But the president won’t. Despite his promise to get to all the facts. Because there’s no such thing as “Islamist terrorism” in ObamaWorld.

And the Army won’t. Because its senior leaders are so sick with political correctness that pandering to America-haters is safer than calling terrorism “terrorism.”

And the media won’t. Because they have more interest in the shooter than in our troops — despite their crocodile tears.

    Mr. Peters, you are absolutely correct. Anytime a group of any kind establishes a pattern such as this, we need to take off our wild eyed liberal goggles and stare reality in the face. Any member of a protected extremist group (e.g., Islam) that is in the military needs to be watched carefully and removed when they begin to show dissent or disagreement with the military operations they agreed to execute when they joined the military–period. They are an unacceptable risk and do not belong in the U.S. military.

    The vast majority of Muslims may be no more of a threat than any other organized group, but no other organized group has produced the quantity of mass murderers we have seen in the last 30 years from Islam. Equally disturbing is the fact that each time such a mass murder is committed, the victims are always absolutely innocent, and the murderer is following their belief that it is in accordance with the will of their god. “Allahu Akbar!” says it all. How many more victims must die before we see the reality before us?

    Col Peters is like the EF Hutton of things military in our house, when he speaks, we listen. He was on fox last night and my husband stood and cheered! Anyone who has studied the Islam religion knows that they are TOLD to kill the infidel. Thank you mr. Peters!

    The sad reality of the Muslim cult is that they have spawned a group of radicals that do use the religion to justify killing other people so if they do not want to be associated with these radicals, extracate them in any fashion necessary to show the rest of the world, they don’t justify them. Otherwise, shut the hell up.

    Thank you, Mr.Peters. Cowardly lame stream media are bought by Saudis. Usurper President if no Muslim himself has sympathy to Muslims and will never go against them under any circumstances. Only grass-roots movement call stall Sharia march in this country. I don’t know how relatives of murdered or non-chair soildiers can take this phychobubble non-sense. Our troops have nothing to do in AfgPak or Iraq. The enemy is in White House, Congress, mass media and universities. The first step after 9/11 should be bombing Mecca and Medina, take over of oil fields and outlaw Islam as death cult and deport Muslims. All these is long time overdue. Those who want to know truth about islam read, and Tha later is run by ex-Muslim. after reading it, one understands why 99% of all terror is committed by Muslims, mainly well-educated and rich.

    One of the reasons that B.O. didn’t mention this act of TERRORISM on the biggest U.S. military base in the WORLD, is because this psycho muslim was part of B.O.’s transition team prior to him entering the whitehouse. Does anyone know why B.O. would give a three minute monologue and even including a “shout out” to a doctor at the speaking engagement, before mentioning his “buddy” killing our U.S. SOLDIERS on one of our most prized and posessed military bases????

    I can’t figure out where our main-stream media is on this one?

    Don’t get me wrong, nobody is perfect and the media is the usually the first one to point that out, but this one can’t go unmentioned!!!!

    We need a leader like the Prime Minister of Australia. If you’re Muslim, “GET OUT”. We don’t want you here! If you don’t speak English, “GET OUT”. If you don’t like our laws, “GET OUT”. If you can’t hack it here by following our religious beliefs in the fact that we actually do worship “GOD and JESUS”, no matter your preferance, then go on somewhere else. We don’t need you or rely on you. Just go, I’ll start a fund to take you there, and I’m sure there are hundreds of millions of true AMERICANS that will pitch in to get you wherever you want to go.

    American political correctness killed those soldiers, and the same iognorance will continue to kill and injure Americans in the future. Al Qaeda and other groups provide the face of terrorism, but it’s Islamic extremist ideology that is the real threat to our country. Many of these terrorists are already here. We see the FBI arresting terrorists (many of them home-grown)all of the time. Many more are out there, and as long as we have Muslims and Muslim converts, we will have those that subscribe the the extemist ideology and who will continue to attack our country and our way of life. Wake up,America!

    Ralph Peters is totally correct that that the Ft. Hood.shooter won’t be held accountable for his homicidal behavior because it is politically not correct to criticize a practicing Muslim for committing acts of terrorism.

    Even if he wasn’t Muslim, he reminds us of other psychiatrists who have engaged in terrorist acts.

    Radovan Karadzic, was a practicing psychiatrist who came to be nicknamed the “Butcher of Bosnia and was involved with ordering genocide, complicity in genocide, extermination, murder, willful killing, persecutions, deportation, inhumane acts, terror against civilians and hostage-taking.

    Ayman al-Zawahiri, a former psychiatrist is considered to be Bin Laden’s chief aide.

    Maj. Hasan shouted “Allah Akbar” before murdering 13 soldiers according to eye witness accounts. Maj. Hasan posted comments about how suicide bombers were the same as soldiers who threw themselves on grenades to protect their fellow soldiers. Maj. Hasan said that Muslims should rise up against American aggressors. Maj. Hasan praised the murder of two US soldiers in Little Rock.

    Maj. Hasan’s spiritual mentor for ten years was Iman Faizul Khan of the Silver Springs mosque. The mosque was built with Saudi money. Mr. Khan is also a director of the Islamic Society of North America, a front group for the Muslim Brotherhood. The motto of the Muslim Brotherhood is “God is our objective, the Quran is our Constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is our way, and death for the sake of God is the highest of our aspirations.”

    This does not mean that all Muslims are terrorists. It does mean that Saudi are using our oil money to spread Wahhabi/Salafist totalitarian theocracy around the world.

    The US has not been spared; many of the US mosques are staffed by people trained in Saudi Arabia; US military chaplains and prison chaplains are chosen by an organization established by the Muslim Brotherhood, organizations like CAIR and the Muslim Students Association were also organized by the Muslim Brotherhood. These organizations do not engage in terrorism; they do create the mindset that allows some members to progress to the next stage and act upon the beliefs they have been taught.

    Faizul Khan taught Maj. Hasan. Maj. Hasan is an Islamic terrorist. It is the way that Wahabbi’s wage war.

    If Fort Hood is to be compared to 9/11, then it follows that the attack of Fort Hood was also a “false flag operation” planned by covert government agents and attributed to Maj. Hasan. This may or may not be the case, but beware of conflating the two events because of the inevitable conclusion.

    Paul: Here is another link: Dalia Mogahed is a director of the Islamic Society of North America (which, with CAIR, was stated in Federal documents presented in July 2008 before a Texas court to be an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation case which the Feds won, the largest terrorist funding case in US legal history) and, as with CAIR, its founders were part of the Muslim Brotherhood. Mogahed was appointed as Hussein Obama’s ‘Muslim Adviser’ at the WH and she recently appeared on Islam Channel UK in a program hosted by Hizb-ut-Tahrir, an organization that calls for a world-wide Caliphate and the overthrow of Western governments. On that program, Mogahed said that Sharia Law was ‘simply misunderstood’ and was beneficial to women.

    I agree with everything Ralph Peters says, but we should also make a stand as an Australian along side America and coalition forces that it is time to get out of Afghanistan and Iraq, why should our soldiers be killed and maimed for these countries, for what, these people are even blowing up one another, I have never got over 9/11, Bali twice, London, Spain and other countries as well its time to say enough is enough, by the way our present priminster Kevin Rudd is letting illegal immigrants in by the boatloads over 40 boats in the last 5 months and he is doing nothing about stopping them, they are afghans, iraqs,Sri Lankan tamils, it was John Howard who stopped the boat influx but I’m afraid we have gone backwards with Rudd.

    Terrorist connections of the Ft. Hood shooter are right now being uncovered and investigated by law enforcement authorities as reported in Conservative media. Ralph Peters’ perceptions of a terrorism link appear more accurate with each succeeding day. Anything we allow that encourages our enemies through our neglect let’s everyone down.

    Great article! Finally and American speaking like an American should. The fact of the matter is that Muslims cannot be trusted; not one single one. Soldiers know this to be true within their own squad. In a time of battle keep a close eye on your enemy and a closer eye on your Muslim partner. Islam is a religion of evil. It attracts the darkest of souls and turns them into angry, hateful, killers. Followers of Islam will of course deny this, but a long history of violence proves otherwise. I understand that not all Muslim are of the murderous kind. Some just aid and abet those who are while others prefer to honor their “religion of peace” by celebrating the deaths of innocent Americans in the privacy of their own homes. As scary as terrorism is, it is recruitment and infiltration we should fear most. Many experts believe that Islamic followers and jihadist have infiltrated all levels of military, government, and civilian life; maybe even all way to the presidency (eh hem). The attack on Fort Hood is just another example of this. If America wishes to protect itself against such deceit and future attacks it must drop all the political correctness and fairness crap and start protecting itself from the obvious…

By reading those comment you come on fox, which is anti-Islamic news channel so i am not surprised you make theses comments. You also know that America downfall is coming, just like soviets.

    Political correctness is destroying the USA. Those who have practiced PC over the years have the blood of Fort Hood on their hands. They created the atmosphere in which people felt inhibited to report the truth over the years. They were the ones who chilled free speech. They were the ones who controlled thought. They were the ones who were the most intolerant of others. Every single incident of PC behavior over the decades permitted the massacre at Fort Hood to occur. As more and more information comes out, it will be clear that the Fort Hood shooter was an islamic extremist, a jihadist. It will also be crystal clear that the government knew about the shooter’s background and islamic extremism and that it did nothing to protect others. Those who knew were afraid to say anything due to the atmosphere of political correctness that prevails in this country. I do not rely on the government to protect me because I know that no one in government cares about me. They pay lip service to national security, while at the same time the wall between the criminal investigators and the intelligence community is being rebuilt. This wall contributed to the 9/11 attacks. There will be more deaths like Fort Hood. We have a fifth column in this country. It is real. It is deadly. Protect yourselves. No one else will.

    Although “political correctness” is a deadly error in thinking it is merely one of the symptoms of a much more dangerous and fatal ideology. “Political correctness” is a natural consequence of Post- Modern “thinking”.
    Every dangerous “ism” of our society such as pluralism, liberalism, communism, marxism, feminism excetera are all the result of a society that no longer believes there is any truth greater that themselves. Everyman does that which is right in his own eyes and the end thereof are the ways of death. They attempt to equalize every contradictory “veiw” no matter how utterly ridiculous it is. They make personal opinion their god and this is all done in the name of “fairness” and “equality” as if this is the ultimate expression of what is good. The one thing that will not be tolerated in our so-called tolerant society is the truth.
    The Post-Modern subjective idea of “fairness” and “equality” is nothing more than the religion of Humanism and “fairness” and “equality” is their version of righteousness and equity. A humanist’s “objective truth” is his subjective opinion, to a humanist consensus determines “truth”.
    If you want to know the policy of all recent Administrations especially the current one and the “thinking” process of most politicians all you have to do is read the “Humanist Manifesto 2”, this is their confession of faith. Humanism is their religion and perversion of truth is their way of life. They operate in an fairy tale land of subjectivism and subjectivism is the murderer of objectivity. To the simpletons who “think” this way, civility takes precedence over truth, because they believe truth is only what the majority perceives it to be. So what your left with is “political correctness” which will be our undoing.
    The non-peace loving religion of Islam knows this and they are using this against the fools that believe it. Just take a look at Europe this is their plan. They are permitted to come in under the guise of pluralism and muti-culturalism taking advantage of so-called fairness and equality and just bide their time. The Muslims just keep pouring in like a flood while the Europeans try to “save” the planet by only having one or no children and the Muslims pro-create like roaches and eventually they infest every nook and crannie of civilization and when their numbers are strong enough they destroy from within and without whenever possible. (Please veiw “What the west needs to know about Islam” on YouTube)
    The Ft. Hood terrorist attack is a microcosom of what is coming for us in America via the hateful religion of Islam if we continue down the the broad road of political correctness.
    A Nation divided against itself can not stand!

    Listen to the words of our first President: “All obstructions to the execution of the Laws, all combinations and associations, under whatever plausible character, with the real design to direct, control, counteract, or awe the regular deliberation and action of the constituted authorities, are destructive of this fundamental principle, and of fatal tendency. They serve to organize faction, to give it an artificial and extraordinary force; to put, in the place of the delegated will of the nation, the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of the community; and, according to the alternate triumphs of different parties, to make the public administration the mirror of the ill-concerted and incongruous projects of faction, rather than the organ of consistent and wholesome plans digested by common counsels, and modified by mutual interests.

    However combinations or associations of the above description may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people, and to usurp for themselves the reins of government; destroying afterwards the very engines, which have lifted them to unjust dominion.

    Towards the preservation of your government, and the permanency of your present happy state, it is requisite, not only that you steadily discountenance irregular oppositions to its acknowledged authority, but also that you resist with care the spirit of innovation upon its principles, however specious the pretexts. One method of assault may be to effect, in the forms of the constitution, alterations, which will impair the energy of the system, and thus to undermine what cannot be directly overthrown. In all the changes to which you may be invited, remember that time and habit are at least as necessary to fix the true character of governments, as of other human institutions; that experience is the surest standard, by which to test the real tendency of the existing constitution of a country; that facility in changes, upon the credit of mere hypothesis and opinion, exposes to perpetual change, from the endless variety of hypothesis and opinion; and remember, especially, that, for the efficient management of our common interests, in a country so extensive as ours, a government of as much vigor as is consistent with the perfect security of liberty is indispensable. Liberty itself will find in such a government, with powers properly distributed and adjusted, its surest guardian. It is, indeed, little else than a name, where the government is too feeble to withstand the enterprises of faction, to confine each member of the society within the limits prescribed by the laws, and to maintain all in the secure and tranquil enjoyment of the rights of person and property…

    Of all the dispositions and habits, which lead to political prosperity, Religion and Morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men and Citizens. The mere Politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connexions with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked, Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths, which are the instruments of investigation in Courts of Justice? And let us with caution indulge the supposition, that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect, that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.

    It is substantially true, that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government. The rule, indeed, extends with more or less force to every species of free government. Who, that is a sincere friend to it, can look with indifference upon attempts to shake the foundation of the fabric ? “

    Maj. Hasan sent emails to Al-Qaeda and the FBI and the New York Times assumes it was for research as a psychiatrist. The New York Times refuses to use the word Al-Qaeda in its stories and prides itself on asking questions about suspicious occurences. But today it mentions Maj. Hasan’s “research” emails as though they were totally legitimate and part of a “special?” psychiatric program. Which makes one wonder why would psychiatrists need to “study” Al-Queda? The New York Times and the FBI apparently aren’t able to ask the question, “What was the purpose of Mr. Hasan’s research on Al-Queda conducted through emails?” It’s the sort of flagrant lapse in judgement that is an alibi for what? If anyone is ever doing something they could be put in jail for, all they have to do is say they are a psychiatrist and it’s okay. And I would be very surprised if Maj. Hasan does not take the momentarily or temporarily insane defense.It’s a very sick message we are sending about all a person would have to do to get away with committing multiple homicides with virtually no accountability whatever.

    actually read the article.. mr peters didn’t “accuse islam for being a pro terror religion”.. he accused this one single man of committing terrorist acts with a motive tied to his islamic beliefs (as warped as they might be) and he accused the acting-president, the media, and the military of ignoring that. it’s 100% true.

    if a christian shoots up an abortion clinic screaming ‘praise Jesus’, that person is a christian terrorist. it doesn’t mean that christianity is a pro-terror religion. and that’s exactly how it should be reported.

    if a mulsim shoots up a military base screaming ‘allahu akbar’, that person is an islamic terrorist. it doesn’t mean that islam is a pro-terror religion, and that’s exactly how mr. peters IS reporting it.

    Fort Hood was a false flag by government agents to further instill hate against Muslims and thereby to support the Rothschildean-American-Zionist empire’s exploitative and genocidal wars against middle eastern Muslim countries.

    Hasan is the patsy who never fired a single shot on Thursday 5 November 2009.

    He was left for dead on the transit hall floor and now is at great risk of being suicided.

    Prior experience (the 9/11 attacks) lead me to suspect the 3 – 5 actual gunmen were brown-skinned CIA/Mossad agents in army fatigues.

    False eye-witness testimonies will be procured and broadcast in the main stream media.

    Hasan will not be allowed to speak to a neutral third party in order to keep the false flag a secret.

    There may be such a thing as a “moderate Muslim”, but it’s obvious who is in charge…the radical one. At it’s core, this is a religion that is ruled by the sword. It may be the fastest growing religion in the world, but would it be if converts didn’t have a noose around their necks? I’m tired of hearing how peaceful a religion it is when all evidence points otherwise. The truth is that Islam itself preaches that there will never be peace on this earth until everyone is converted to Islam. Not much room to argue when that is at the core of it’s theology…WAKE UP AMERICA!! Study the history of Lebanon & what Islam did there…it’s coming to an America near you

    If you sent your child to school and a bully killed them saying “you have cooties”, What would you do? Is it justified for an adult to act that way? Where is the cut off point between being childish and being antisocial? Every single person in the world would be a lot better off if we would only respect that we are all here together as humans. I think that all peaceful religions and ways of thinking would conclude this much.
