‘Senseless’ seems easier than saying ‘jihad’

Once again, an obvious and intentional act of Islamic jihad is being denied, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.  Even while honoring a hero of the Ft. Hood massacre the US Army claims not to know why the atrocity happened.  Such political correctness is nothing more than a cowardly act of dhimmitude.  That a General officer should wince at the act of naming the real source of the murders shows the depths of denial the to which government has sunk.

Until the top levels of government can say clearly that Islam is the core of the attacks against the West, we will continue to sink into a morass of fear and defeat.

Diana West spells out the depth and breadth of denial that has incapacitated our decision makers.


‘Senseless’ seems easier than saying ‘jihad’
By Diana West

The Army honored a fallen hero of the Ft. Hood Jihad Massacre with a medal this week. Not, of course, that the Army describes the November 2009 attack in such meaningful terms. Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan may have shouted "Allahu Akbar" (Arabic for "Allah is great") as he killed 14 and wounded more than two dozen; may have been in contact with jihad cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and frequented jihadist websites; may have had business cards proclaiming himself a "SoA" (Soldier of Allah); and may have created and presented an Islamically correct PowerPoint brief outlining reasons for jihad by Muslims within the U.S. Armed Forces, but no matter. His actions remain a total mystery to the U.S. Army.

To wit: "Although we may never know why it happened, we do know that heroic actions took place that day," Brig. Gen. Joseph DiSalvo said in presenting the Secretary of the Army Award for Valor to Joleen Cahill, widow of Michael Grant Cahill. Cahill is recognized as the first person to have tried to stop Hasan and the only civilian to have been killed by Hasan that day. "He will forever be a source of inspiration."

Alas, I have my doubts about the deputy commanding general of Ft. Hood. Despite overwhelming evidence that Hasan committed an act of jihad, DiSalvo -- like the Army, like the U.S. government -- looks the other way. "We may never know why" the Hasan attack happened, DiSalvo said without, apparently, turning red or rolling his eyes.
