Allahu Akbar 1 Big Controversial Term: Did Malik Nadal Hassan Claim “Allahu Akbar” During Fort Hood Shooting?

Allahu Akbar is a religious phrase. Allahu Akbar was made controversial by Malik Nadal Hassan. Was Allahu Akbar claimed by Malik Nadal Hassan? What does Allahu Akbar mean? Many Americans are wondering many things about Allahu Akbar, Malik Nadal Hassan, and the reason behind the Fort Hood Shootings.  Although it will be difficult to know the whole truth until it is revealed, let’s take a look at Allahu Akbar and its meaning.

“Allahu Akbar” and “Allahu Ekber” are similar terms that mean “God is Great.”  Allahu Akbar is an Islamic explanation.  Allahu Akbar is also the national anthym of Libya, and a song by Matoub.

Malik Nadal Hassan went on a shooting rampage at Fort Hood.  Malik Nadal Hassan is a Muslim, and according to CBS reports he exlaimed “Allahu Akbar” as he was shooting.  So far, there have been 13 deaths and 30 injuries in the Fort Hood attacks.

Allahu Akbar has received a lot of negative press in America.  It is said that the 9/11 attackers exclaimed “Allahu Akbar” during their attacks.  Radical jihadists are said to make the same exclamation when completing suicide attacks.

If Malik Nadal Hassan did in fact exclaim “Allahu Akbar” while completing the Fort Hood shootings, what does that mean? Was his act an act of Jihad, or “Holy War”  or was he just a soldier fed up with the system.  Some reports indicate that he was set for deployment, and was receiving harassment from other individuals of the Muslim faith.  Other rumors circulating include that Malik Nadal Hassan was acting on behalf of a radical group.  Again, those are just rumors.

Attack at Fort Hood: 12 Dead After Fort Hood Shooting, What’s Next?

The attack at Fort Hood is scary. The Fort Hood shooting and Fort Hood attack are horrendous, as 12 Fort Hood residents are dead.  The body count for the attack at Fort Hood and Fort Hood Shooting could be rising.

Today, at least 2 suspects stormed the Fort Hood military base near Austin, Texas.  Fort Hood is home to over 4,000 active duty officers and over 40,000 enlisted military professionals.  Fort Hood also employs about 9,000 civilians.  At least one of the gunmen have been killed.

After the Fort Hood attack, you have to wonder what is next.  Was the attack orchestrated by soldiers fed up with the system, or worse yet – someone that wanted American soldiers dead?  Our questions about the Fort Hood attack have yet to be answered, and many are searching frantically for the newest Fort Hood updates.

The FBI is en route to Fort Hood to help with the investigation.  This factoid is raising a lot of eyebrows, as typically the FBI tries to stay out of military investigations.

Eric Shinseki – Your New VA Head

General Eric Ken Shinseki was our 34th Chief of Staff of the US Army for the exact time period when I was doing my under grad.

Good news for those who support Gen Eric is that he is to be chosen to be the next Secretary of Veterans Affairs by the Obama administration. This is an awesome move given Gen Eric was the only officer to publicly disagree with Rumsfeld and Paul, the two neo cons who led US into a war with Iraq and ensured our soldiers were outnubered during the high insurgency days.

troopsdm0803 468x432 9 Soldiers KIA In Wanat, Afghanistan

Iraq seems to be on track to stabilization although peace is still very very fragile in that country. But what is proving to be rather irksome is Afghanistan. Especially because the militants have the ability to hit at the stationed American and NATO forces, and then scurry back to ungoverned tribal bad lands of Pakistan for R&R.

The fact that Pakistan is not doing its bit or unable to do so, either intentionally or unintentionally, to eliminate this threat is further adding to the frustration of American troop commanders posted in Afghanistan.
