"Mistrust those in whom the urge to punish is strong." Friedrich Nietzche

"Any and all non-violent, non-coercive, non-larcenous, consensual adult behavior that does not physically harm other people or their property or directly and immediately endangers same, that does not disturb the peace or create a public nuisance, and that is done in private, especially on private property, is the inalienable right of all adults. In a truly free and liberty-loving society, ruled by a secular government, no laws should be passed to prohibit such behavior. Any laws now existing that are contrary to the above definition of inalienable rights are violations of the rights of adults and should be made null and void." D. M. Mitchell (from The Myth of Inalienable Rights, at: http://dowehaverights.blogspot.com/)

Murdering Muslim Terrorist

In some of the first reports on what happened at Fort Hood, Texas, identifying Major N. M. Hasan as the shooter, it was mentioned that he didn't want to be send to Iraq or Afghanistan because he didn't want to take part in killing his Muslim brothers.

First of all, as a psychiatrist, he wouldn't be killing his Muslim brothers. Secondly, where has he been? Muslims kill Muslims all the time. Who is behind the car bombings in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iraq, Buddhists? Sunnis kill Shias, Shias kill Sunnis. Muslims killing Muslims have been going on for centuries.

Most, if not all, of the people killed in the massive car bombings in the markets and other public gathering places are innocent people, and many of them are women and children, Muslims all, as are the car bombers who kill them. What didn't Major Hasan understand about that?

I don't want to be sent to kill other Muslims . . . oh please! Major Hasan's logic was not logic at all. It was pure emotionalism, but then he was religious, a fundamental Muslim, and all religions are based on emotion, not on logic.

So why didn't Major Hasan resign his commission? If his religious faith (a belief in that which cannot be seen, tested, nor proven) was such that he couldn't participate in a war on global murdering Muslim terrorists, why was he in the Army in the first place?

Okay, maybe he became more devout as his career developed. Still, when he realized that his oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution was in conflict with his religious beliefs, then the logical thing to have done at that time would have been to resign his commission.

Then he could have immigrated to some Muslim country like Saudi Arabia, or even Afghanistan and lived a devout Muslim life. He could have found a devout Muslim sla..., er, wife. He could have even joined in with the Taliban or Al Qaeda and gone to war against the evil invading Christian soldiers from American. Then, if he had been killed, he would have been assured a place in Heaven with his 72 virgins* (which, by the way is not in the Koran).

But he didn't resign. He decided to kill other American soldiers. He became an enemy combatant for Allah. He became a murdering Muslim terrorist.

* By the way, why virgins? I have had exactly two virgins in my life . . . it got better. Of course, since in the fundamentalist Muslim way of thinking--that is, medieval--a woman is the property of a man (don't laugh Christians, you believed that way until the 20th Century . . . some still do). The purpose of owning a woman is for production of sons. The purpose of starting with a virgin is to ensure that no other man has had her before you and that any children she produces for you are, in fact, your "flesh and blood," which, by the way, you own like slaves, too. (The boys get to own themselves when they become men . . . not the girls, though.) My point here, is that in Muslim heaven there would be no need of virgins. No, in fact, what one should logically want is an experienced and artful lover, one who knows what to do and can do it with enthusiasm; in other words a high-priced whore. Oh well, so much for logic.
