The Threat Posed By Islamist Military Chaplains

April 3, 2014 – San Francisco, CA – – On Tuesday, courtesy of a Fox News exclusive story [see, Breaking - FBI Interviews Jihad Spouting Army Recruit Mohammad Abdullah Hassan, Deems Him “Not A Threat”] we learned that a jihad spouting recent Army recruit, Mohammad Abdullah Hassan, after having been interviewed by the FBI, was declared to represent “no danger.”

This despite Mr. Hassan’s ardent desire to follow in the footsteps of the 2009 Ft. Hood jihadist, the disgraced Maj. Nidal Hasan, expressed both verbally and through social media postings.

Not only is the FBI's determination in this matter inexplicably bizarre, it hints at a deeper problem.

If the top domestic law enforcement organization is willing to certify as “no threat” people like Mohammad Hassan, what kind of standards are being employed to weed out potential jihadist military imams?

According to one who should know, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a devout Muslim and an 11 year Navy veteran who retired at the rank of Lt. Commander, the answer is shocking; military imams are appendages of the HAMAS front group, the Islamic Society of North America.

You are reading that correctly;a group which has been proven to be associated with the Muslim Brotherhood's bloody step-child, HAMAS, is the official body which certifies Muslim chaplains.

“…The Government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA and NAIT with HLF, the Islamic Association for Palestine (“IAP”), and with Hamas. [source, Crim. No. 3:04-CR-0240-P, United States of America v. Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, Shukri Abu Baker, Mohammad El-Mezain, Ghassan Elashi, Mufid Abdulqadar, Abdulrahman Odey , pg. 15]

According to the ISNA website the following constitutes the appropriate code of ethics for Muslim chaplains:

“I, as a Muslim chaplain, pledge to serve God in accordance with sound Islamic principles: compassion, service to humanity, sincere advice, equity, respect for human dignity, and justice; I will obey the Islamic teachings, love the Compassionate God with all my heart and soul, and serve the people who seek my help, counsel, and advice with compassion, sincerity, and integrity.” [source, ISNA Chaplaincy Services Department]

Anyone even marginally familiar with Islamist ideology will recognize that this declaration has nothing to do with an attestation that the ultimate responsibility of any American soldier is to protect and defend the United States. Instead it demands that the imam recognize that his ultimate loyalty is to his religion, not to his country.

As related in a recent Wall Street Journal Op Ed, Dr. Jasser notes that a 2009 fatwa [a finding of fact within Islamic jurisprudence], published by the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America found that, “the basic conflict between the declaration of faith and testimony that there is no God except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah and the declaration and pledge of Allegiance of the USA is irreconcilable.” .

Thus the FBI’s recent finding that there is no threat posed by jihad minded military recruits, underlines two huge national security concerns.

The first is obvious; under what kind of twisted logic is law enforcement making the decision to ignore the expressed desire by an Islamic recruit that he indents to murder fellow soldiers?

The second is also easily recognizable; why would the DOD rely on an organization linked to HAMAS for anything, let alone vetting potential Islamic chaplains?

Since the U.S. Armed Forces are among many things, a weapons culture it behooves both the civilian and military leadership of the U.S. to absolutely take all reasonable precautions for avoiding another Ft. Hood massacre, by keeping jihadist wannabe soldiers far away from military ordnance.

The fact that this administration is taking the opposite approach, welcoming jihadists into military service - upon the certification of the FBI - is merely another indication of TeamObama’s criminal recklessness.
