Fort Hoodin ammuskelu

Suomalaiselta medialta näyttää jääneen seuraava yksityiskohta ammuskelusta huomaamatta:

"Soldiers reported that the gunman shouted "Allahu Akbar!" — an Arabic phrase for "God is great!" — before opening fire Thursday, said Lt. Gen. Robert Cone, the base commander. He said officials had not confirmed Hasan made the comment."

Tämä viittaa selvästi uskonnollissävytteiseen motiiviin, lähde.

Interviews with Ali and other worshipers at the mosque, the Islamic Community of Greater Killeen, paint a portrait of a man devoted to his faith and troubled by his impending deployment to Afghanistan to contribute to a war effort he opposed at least partly on religious grounds.

"He obviously didn’t want to go," said Duane Reasoner, 18, who looked up to Hasan as a sort of religious mentor. "He said he shouldn’t be going to Iraq, and Muslims shouldn’t be in the military — it was an obvious conflict of interest. Muslims shouldn’t be killing Muslims. He told me not to join the military."

Reasoner said he wouldn't condemn Hasan after the shooting spree.

“I don’t know his intentions," Reasoner told "I don’t know what he was thinking. I won't condemn another Muslim.”
