The tragedy in Ft. Hood has brought to light Muslims serving in the military.
We would like to first say that Muslims can and do serve quite honorably in the United States military.
In fact, we would go as far as to say that Muslims in the United States military are doing a service to their faith. They are helping out in many parts of the world already plagued by Muslim on Muslim violence.
On a daily basis, from Iraq to Afghanistan, from Pakistan to even Iran, Muslims bomb, maim, and kill other Muslims. The United States is on the right side and trying to stop this.
Remember, more Muslims die each day in these conflicts, with violence generated by Muslims. Mosques, crowded streets, businesses, and restaurants are popular targets.
It is quite ridiculous for anyone to say that Muslims serving in the US military should quit because they should not be called on to kill other Muslims. In fact, as stated with the examples above, Muslims already kill Muslims on a daily basis. And they are not serving in the US military.
So we must say, that the Ft. Hood tragedy was terrorism. In fact, how could this crazy fool think he would not shoot any Muslims? They are serving in the military.
We dropped the ball. We cannot excuse anyone in the name of political correctness.
And we must reiterate. Muslims do serve quite honorably in the US military.
