I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Hasan’s Fellow Mosque Member: “I’m Not Going To Condemn Him For What He Did.”

by @ 1:26 pm on November 8, 2009. Filed under In The News, Islam, Religion

The BBC interview a member of the Texas mosque that Major Nidal Malik Hasan attended prior to last week’s attack and came away with a rather shocking statement:

Duane : I’m not going to condemn him for what he did. I don’t know why he did it. I will not, absolutely not, condemn him for what he had done though. If he had done it for selfish reasons I still will not condemn him. He’s my brother in the end. I will never condemn him.

Gavin Lee : There might be a lot of people shocked to hear you say that.

Duane: Well, that’s the way it is. I don’t speak for the community here but me personally I will not condemn him.

Gavin Lee : What are your thoughts towards those that were victims in this?

Duane : They were, in the end, they were troops who were going to Afghanistan and Iraq to kill Muslims. I honestly have no pity for them. It’s just like the majority of the people that will hear this, after five or six minutes they’ll be shocked, after that they’ll forget about them and go on their day.

    Yikes is right. I assume Duane is a American citizen who is not assimilated. Tip of the ice berg.

    Well, Duane is certainly not going along with the preferred media meme. It’s not all that surprising though. I’ve seen left-wing commenters on blogs say as much about American soldiers’ lives for the past six years. That guy who tossed grenades into his fellow soldiers’ tent on the eve of the Iraq invasion developed something of a fan club on certain lefty websites. Maybe this guy can leverage this into 15 minutes of fame!

  3. Why is “Duane” still breathing our American air?
