On a form filled out by those seeking spouses through a programme at the mosque, Hasan listed his birthplace as Arlington, Virginia, but his nationality as Palestinian, Khan said.

‘I don’t know why he listed Palestinian,’ Khan said, ‘He was not born in Palestine.’

At the 4:05 mark in the convenience store surveillance video posted below in World News, the woman who interviewed the store owner quoted him as saying that Hasan claimed to be from Jordan.

This ‘good American’ as his cousin called him, was apparently ashamed to admit to fellow Muslims that he was born and raised in America. ‘Nuff said.

World Net Daily is reporting that Fort Hood gunman Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan attended a meeting with President Obama’s advisors wherein they discussed matters of Homeland Security. **relevant excerpt below

aaAccording to the Associated Press, Hasan had been trying to leave the military for years, and the FBI had been monitoring him for at least six months after he posted anti-American rants online. Former commanders are all giving the same story: he was really quiet, didn’t make friends, and needed close supervision to perform his duties because of undisclosed “difficulties.”

Hey Newsweek: thanks for proffering speculation that he snapped because of stress about the wars. Any day now, I am sure that another random soldier will shout Allah Akbar in a shooting spree because they’re just so burned out.

It warms the heart to know that President Obama’s staff does such a great job vetting everyone who gets close to him. After eight years of being told that the President shaped policy to appease his partisan base, it would be nice if someone in the mainstream media started asking the same about Obama.

**NEW YORK – Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the alleged shooter in yesterday’s massacre at Fort Hood, played a homeland security advisory role in President Barack Obama’s transition into the White House, according to a key university policy institute document.

The Homeland Security Policy Institute at George Washington University published a document May 19, entitled “Thinking Anew – Security Priorities for the Next Administration: Proceedings Report of the HSPI Presidential Transition Task Force, April 2008 – January 2009,” in which Hasan of the Uniformed Services University School of Medicine is listed on page 29 of the document as a Task Force Event Participant.

The Homeland Security Policy Institute is led by Frank J Cilluffo, who formerly served in the White House as special assistant to President Bush for homeland security, and by Daniel Kaniewski, who formerly served in the White House as special assistant to President Bush for homeland security and senior director for response policy.

“Muslims should stand up and fight the aggressor,” Hasan said about America before he and possibly other Muslim soldiers at Fort Hood shot 43 fellow soldiers, killing 12, who were returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

“He said Muslims had a right to attack” the U.S., said Col. Terry Lee, who worked with Hasan at the Texas post, where the devout Sunni Muslim refused deployment. “He said Muslims shouldn’t be fighting Muslims,” he added. “He was very clear on that.”

From the AP:

Federal law enforcement officials say the suspected Fort Hood, Texas, shooter had come to their attention at least six months ago because of Internet postings that discussed suicide bombings and other threats.

The officials say the postings appeared to have been made by Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who was killed during the shooting incident that left least 11 others dead and 31 wounded. The officials say they are still trying to confirm that he was the author. They say an official investigation was not opened.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case.

One of the Web postings that authorities reviewed is a blog that equates suicide bombers with a soldier throwing himself on a grenade to save the lives of his comrades.

We believe the posting referenced is the one reprinted below:

There was a grenade thrown amongs a group of American soldiers. One of the soldiers, feeling that it was to late for everyone to flee jumped on the grave with the intention of saving his comrades. Indeed he saved them. He inentionally took his life (suicide) for a noble cause i.e. saving the lives of his soldier. To say that this soldier committed suicide is inappropriate. Its more appropriate to say he is a brave hero that sacrificed his life for a more noble cause. Scholars have paralled this to suicide bombers whose intention, by sacrificing their lives, is to help save Muslims by killing enemy soldiers. If one suicide bomber can kill 100 enemy soldiers because they were caught off guard that would be considered a strategic victory. Their intention is not to die because of some despair. The same can be said for the Kamikazees in Japan. They died (via crashing their planes into ships) to kill the enemies for the homeland. You can call them crazy i you want but their act was not one of suicide that is despised by Islam. So the scholars main point is that “IT SEEMS AS THOUGH YOUR INTENTION IS THE MAIN ISSUE” and Allah (SWT) knows best.

While the American media keeps whining about evil Bob McDonnell and that darn Sarah Palin, real life keeps going for reporters elsewhere.

steamFor example, reporters in the middle east had to spend today discussing a ship that got confiscated by Israeli defense officials, allegedly carrying thousands of tons of weaponry from Iran to Hezbollah.

According to the Israeli government, the ship, which was seized in the waters of Cyprus, held some 12,000 tons worth of missiles and rockets that were bound to be delivered to Hezbollah somewhere in Lebanon.

Iran denies the accusations of weapons peddling, claiming that the ship was full of commercial goods and Israel apparently made up evidence of seized missiles.

Given how much grief Israel took over their last war with Hezbollah, and how much of a financial and emotional toll it took on their population, it simply strains the imagination to accept Iran’s version: Israel spontaneously raided a commercial ship, lied about finding weapons, staged photos of fake missiles, and dared Iran to contradict the navigation of the ship, all as part of an elaborate scheme to start another war in Lebanon while knowing that America would probably not back them up.

Yeah, Tehran, that’s what happened.

This development throws quite a setback on President Obama’s stalled peace talks between Israel/Palestine and the effort to contain Iran’s military ambitions. Under Obama’s leadership, the American government had taken a harsh new tone against Israel with demands for limited settlement in the Gaza region.

Perhaps this will be a wake-up call for Obama that Israel’s actions really are in self-defense and that their enemies cannot be trusted to honor a cease-fire that was brokered by the UN.

Then again, maybe not.

Famed film director Ronald Emmerich enjoys a rather odd niche in movie making: he specializes in creating scenes about important statues and landmarks getting destroyed. He was the genius behind blowing up the White House in Independence Day and flooding New York City in The Day After Tomorrow.

chickenThanks to Emmerich’s pioneering ways, modern viewers can hardly go more than 30 minutes without seeing some iconic figure get randomly destroyed. In GI Joe it was the Eiffel Tower. Transformers 2, the pyramids. Wolverine destroyed a nuclear plant on Six Mile Island, and ABC Family tried its hand at a series that destroyed the moon.

From somewhere beyond, Douglas Adams is smiling.

In his latest adventure, Emmerich directed the highly-publicized film 2012 which supposedly chronicles the end of the world according to the Mayan calendar.

A particular scene, which was leaked early on for preview, depicted collapse of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil. Many Christians took offense to the image, asking what purpose an action film would have in bringing up religious objects.

As The Messenger has noted before, liberals have no problem bringing religion into the public square for the purpose of attacking it.

When asked about the issue in a recent interview, Emmerich admitted to targeting the Christ statue out of dislike for organized religion. That’s right, readers. As you eat your popcorn and enjoy the eye candy of a harmless action film, let it warm your heart to know that the director purposely destroyed an image of Christ because he hates religion and has a safe public platform from which to attack it.

But apparently not all religion. Emmerich went on to confess that he’d also planned similar destruction for Mecca but then chickened out:

Well, I wanted to do that, I have to admit. But my co-writer Harald said I will not have a fatwa on my head because of a movie. And he was right. We have to all in the Western world think about this.

You can actually let Christian symbols fall apart, but if you would do this with [an] Arab symbol, you would have a fatwa, and that sounds a little bit like what the state of this world is.

So according to Emmerich, it’s okay to throw unrelated attacks on Christianity into an action film because those people won’t kill you. But fear of fatwa is enough to prevent Islam from receiving such treatment.

Thanks for speaking truth to power there, Emmerich. You’re a real brave artist.
