Nidal Malik Hasan

Nidal Malik Hasan is creating fear among Americans. Nidal Malik Hasan shot and killed many people on a US Army base and wounded dozens more. The big problem is that he is Muslim and now many Americans fear the Muslims they know. They fear sleeper cells and Muslims who claimed to be hiding among us.

People are saying the sleeper cells are infiltrate the military and government. They are doctors and professors at universities. They are business owners and just plain ordinary people. Then one day, they commit the terrorist act that assures them salvation according to Islam.

Even if you banned Islam in this country, they would still exist secretly, not appearing to practice Islam, but still holding on to their belief that death to the infidel (American) would be their greatest act of devotion (as well as getting 20 virgins in the next world).

Is it possible that there are Muslims who live in the United States who love freedom and our country just as we do? Of course it is. Creating fear and bigotry is not good for anyone. But when something happens like did with Nidal Malik Hasan, it is very hard to deal with.
