Some Fear No Backlash Against Muslims

Its OK to be picky about what breed of dog we get, maybe a German Shepherd  because they have a particular instinct to protect their owner's property, or if we want to kill moles in our yard maybe a Rat Terrier is best at that, or if we want a particularly affectionate cat we go for an Abyssinian. Its OK for an Atlanta Falcons quarterback to stereotype Pit Bulls as the best killing dogs since they are bred to fight to the death.

Its OK for birds to discriminate. Black birds migrate together and white birds flock together and yellow ones and red ones hang with their own kind. Its OK to say that Blue Jays kick other birds out of the feeder and gold finches prefer Niger thistle seed best while Robins prefer worms. It's their instinct, you see, it's genetics.

It is not OK to say that Japanese men are better suited to get in and out of a Toyota Prius or wear smaller than size 10 shoe than women who are Polish, nor to say that black people are better suited for warm climates, even though there are only five African-Americans in Great Falls, Montana, and four of them are at Malmstrom Air Force Base (the city of Great Falls has an annual all-white Martin Luther King birthday parade).

Speaking of military bases, it is unclear how many Muslims of Arabic descent are in the US military. Estimates of anywhere between 3500 to 12,000 have been thrown around. Why don't we know for sure? It is because they aren't allowed to count them. Same reason we frisk a snow white red-headed grandma at the airport but we can't stop an olive skinned man with a keffiyeh on his head--we don't want to be accused of "profiling" in this politically correct country we live in.

Never mind 3,500 to 12,000 possible Muslims in the military. What if it is an average of only two per military installation? Never mind Muslims in the military... why do we have them in the country period? Never mind the country--why do we have one in the oval office?

Though we are not allowed to stereotype anybody, we are all familiar with the explorations regarding whether or not it is possible for a good Muslim be a good American. His allegiance is to Allah, The moon god of Arabia. No other religion is accepted by his Allah except Islam (Quran, 2:256) His allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran and to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer five times a day. His responsibility to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews. He must submit to his mullahs who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, the great Satan. He cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt. Islam does not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.

The military oath of enlistment for a Muslim would go something like this:

"I, 
[Abdullah Muhammad Ali Hussein] do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."

In the case of our Ft. Hood, Texas Jihadist,

“I, Nidal Malik Hasan, 
[SSAN], having been appointed an officer in the Army of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of [Major when he cried out "Allah Akbar! " before killing 13 people and wounding 31] do solemnly swear [or affirm] that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God.”

Yet, the only thing troubling folks in military command like Army Chief of Staff George Casey for instance, is the possibility of a "backlash" against Muslims in the military as a result of the shootings.

We need to be "troubled" at the probability that there won't be a backlash against Muslims.
Our political correctness will be the ruination of our country.
