Hasan's PowerPoint presentation

The Washington Post has obtained a PowerPoint presentation by the Fort Hood shooter. One enlightening slide was a quote from the Qur'an "And whoever kills a believer [Muslim] intentionally, his punishment is hell..." (Surah 4:93). (via Jihad Watch).

Hasan went on his murderous rampage after finding out that he was being transferred to Iraq. I wonder if he was worried about being placed in a situation where he might have to kill Muslims (though why a psychiatrist should have to worry about killing anyone is puzzling).

If a devoted Christian had to choose between military orders and violating his faith, he would likely refuse to obey the orders and either legally challenge or simply accept the consequences, but killing anyone would be absolutely in violation of everything the New Testament teaches.

Hasan, on the other hand, apparently believed that killing the infidel was consistent with the teachings of the Qur'an and would even provide him with a quick path to heaven. Beliefs have consequences.

Another enlightening slide is the one entitled, "Example: Jihad rule of abrogation" slide where Hasan points out that in Mecca (the early part Muhammad's life) Muslims were not even allowed to defend themselves. Later, however, after their emigration to Medina, self-defense was allowed--at first.

"Then offensive fighting was allowed" and "Later verses abrogated the former, i.e. peaceful verses no longer apply." "Indeed at one point Islamic empire spanned form [sic] Morocco/Spain to the Border of India/China."

There you have it. Muhammad was peaceful at first, (i.e. before he had any power), but the more rich and powerful he became, the more violent and imperialistic he became (hmmm, sounds a lot like modern Arab nations doesn't it)? And the peaceful verses in the Qur'an are said to no longer apply.

Isn't it too bad Hasan didn't understand Islam as well as our elite American Leftists?

For another observation on these PowerPoints, see the Muccings blog.
