One of Hasan's classmates recalled that presentation: “We asked him pointedly, ‘Nidal, do you consider Shari'a law to transcend the Constitution of the United States?’ And he said, ‘Yes.’ We asked him if homicidal bombers were rewarded for their acts with seventy-two virgins in heaven and he responded, ‘I've done the research—yes.’ Those are comments he made in front of the class. . . . I was astounded and went to multiple faculty members and asked why he was even in the Army. . . . Political correctness squelched any opportunity to confront him.”

And the political correctness continued even after Hasan killed more than a dozen soldiers at Ford Hood. Army Chief of Staff George W. Casey, Jr., sent a mass email to soldiers expressing his concern about a potential “backlash against our Muslim soldiers and civilians.” Casey went on NBC's Meet the Press and said, “Our diversity, not only in our Army, but in our country, is a strength. And as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that's worse.”

Now, that is an astonishing statement. If our “diversity” ever becomes a “casualty,” that will be a worse loss than the real casualties—the dead and wounded victims of the Fort Hood shooting! At the very highest levels of our military, our leaders are so anxious to be thought of as “tolerant” and “politically correct” that they openly value cultural “diversity” above the lives of our fighting men and women. That is why the military kept promoting Nidal Malik Hasan, even though he was clearly a threat to his fellow soldiers. The military bureaucracy bent over backwards to keep the Army from appearing to be “Islamophobic.”

Islamists can never appreciate or pledge an allegiance to the constitution or the flag, only to the Shari’a and the Caliphate. That is why, to them, democracy is a folly or a tool to reach power. Once there, ALL forms and trappings of secular democracy will be swept away into the dust bin of Jihad. As a Christian who loves ALL people but not ALL systems I pray that the mainstream media and government officials will be cured of this deadly disease before it is too late for ALL of us.
