Hasan’s Illogical Defense

Major Nidal Hasan, Fort Hood murderer, will defend himself in his trial. He plans to justify his murders by claiming he was protecting Muslims in Afghanistan. That is an interesting defense in light of what happened a few days ago.

A bomber killed two American soldiers. Also killed were 10 Muslim children. There was no outcry by Muslims about the killing of the innocent children by a Muslim bomber.

As pointed out in a previous blog, Muslims are dying by the hundreds not through any American military action but through the callous actions of other Muslims. Hasan’s defense is based on denial of this fact. U.S. rules of engagement are strict about who American soldiers can shoot in a combat zone. Basically, the rules of engagement limit shooting by the American military to only shooting at Muslim combatants. There are no rules of engagement for Muslims.

Every month there are stories of Muslims killing Muslims in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. There are no American combat troops in Syria or Pakistan. But the militant jihadist ignored that fact because it contradicts their radical ideology.

Only the uninformed, the ignorant or the gullible believe that there is an American war on Islam. If there was an American war on Islam, why does the United States have so many Muslims coming to this nation? People don’t flock to a nation that plans to exterminate them. This is precisely why Hasan’s defense will fail. It doesn’t make sense. It is twisted logic not supported by the facts.
