Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan the Fort Hood murderer whining about his “religious rights”
By Kevin “Coach” Collins
The lawyer for Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan has expressed the murderer’s concerns about not being able to pray from the Koran in Arabic with a “relative.”
According to a statement from the murderer’s lawyer the police who are guarding Hasan at Brooks Army Medical Center cut off a phone conversation he was allegedly having with one of his brothers because it was not being carried out in English. He continued, “I think it’s illegal and a violation of his religious rights.”
More reasons for this swine to be tried in a military court
In a civilian court setting restrictions on a prisoner’s language of communication with lawyers and visitors would be uncommon. Several precedent cases have held that prisoners are entitled to great latitude in this area, but those are civilian cases not military tribunal findings. Because Hasan has been deemed a continuing threat to American security, the Army can and does demand only English can be used in conversations involving Hasan who chanted “Allahu Akbar” an Arabic phrase meaning God is great, as he systematically murdered his unarmed victims.
A civilian Law professor who is a former JAG officer offered his opinion stating, “They can put reasonable restrictions on his movements and activities. The question is what is reasonable. In light of the fact that he is clearly influenced by radical jihad, in my opinion, it’s entirely reasonable to limit his spoken activities to English.”
Moreover, by Hasan’s own admission English is his first language with Arabic a language he studied and adopted only in later life. This further weakens his dubious claim religious or otherwise, to some sort of exemption from this regulation.
Sources within the national security community have reported that among the several suspected terrorists killed in a secret strike in Yemen last week was Anwar al Awlaki the radical Muslim cleric who counseled Hasan during his growing determination to murder unarmed innocent American Army personnel at Ft. Hood Texas last month.
The same air strike also killed Saeed Ali al-Shehri a former Gitmo prisoner released by the Bush Administration, who had quickly resumed his terrorist activities and was reported to be a high ranking al Qaeda terrorist leader.
Anwar al-Awlaki, has told Al Jazeera Hasan asked him “about killing U.S. soldiers and officers. His question was is it legitimate… under Islamic law.”His answer was clearly “Yes.”
We have to watch this Hasan case very closely. We can’t let him slip away on some lawyer non sense. Hasan has to be convicted and sent to Allah without delay.
America needs every patriot to step up. What have you done to protect American freedoms today? You haven’t looked away I hope.
