Fort Hood-mördaren är enligt utländska nyhetsbyråer ”palestinier”, dvs arab från de omtvistade områdena i Israel. Motivet för gärningen beskrivs i svensk media som en reaktion på att han var på väg att skickas till Irak, men motiven kan te sig lite annorlunda om man vet att han var muslim och dessutom kallade sig ”palestinier”.
Uppdatering: Enligt JihadWatch ska han ha skrikit ”något på arabiska”:
Major Nidal Malik Hasan, a U.S. Army psychiatrist, murdered twelve people and wounded twenty-one inside Fort Hood in Texas yesterday, while, according to eyewitnesses, “shouting something in Arabic while he was shooting.”
Ett par godbitar från Spencers inlägg här, men läs gärna hela inlägget på JIhadWatch för en icke-PK-version av vad som skedde:
Yet there was, and what’s more, Major Hasan’s motive was perfectly clear — but it was one that the forces of political correctness and the Islamic advocacy groups in the United States have been working for years to obscure.
So he identified himself as Palestinian and was a devout Muslim – so what? These things, of course, have no significance if one assumes that Islam is a Religion of Peace and that when a devout Muslim reads the Koran’s many injunctions to wage war against unbelievers, he knows that they have no force or applicability for today’s world. Unfortunately, all too many Muslims around the world demonstrate in both their words and their deeds that they take such injunctions quite seriously. And Nidal Hasan gave some indications that he may have been among them.
TT verkar nu känna sig tvingade att rapportera om mannens bakgrund, även om de skriver att ”Misstankar om fler förövare avskrevs snabbt, liksom oron för att det rörde sig om ett terrordåd”.
Lite komiskt om man läser detta:
According to unnamed law enforcement officials, the major came to their attention six months ago on suspicion of posting Internet messages equating suicide bombers with soldiers who throw themselves on a grenade to save the lives of their comrades. No formal investigation had been opened before the shooting.:
Vad annan media rapporterat om det:
”Major Nidal Malik Hasan, 39, was born in Virginia to parents who moved to the US from a Palestinian town near Jerusalem”.
Daily Telegraph skriver:
”The army major was born in the United States to Palestinian parents who had emigrated from a small town near Jerusalem”.
”On a form filled out by those seeking spouses through a program at the mosque, Hasan listed his birthplace as Arlington, Va., but his nationality as Palestinian, Khan said. ”I don’t know why he listed Palestinian,” Khan said, ”He was not born in Palestine.”
