A terrorism expert and author is warning of what he perceives as a
threat to the U.S. military, and suggesting to lower that danger,
Muslims not be allowed to enlist in the ranks.
“Muslim Mafia” co-author David Gaubatz said on a recent edition of
his counterterrorism radio program that because of a Muslim’s first
allegiance to Shariah law, they are ill-fitted for the U.S. armed
Gaubatz said a mosque leader in Knoxville, Tenn., reported many
Muslims in the military believe that their fellow soldiers are
“An Islamic leader at a mosque in Knoxville, Tenn., told me that many
of the ‘friendly fire’ incidents were actually murders. He advised
many Muslims are joining the military for outstanding training and to
fight the enemy (their fellow troops),” Gaubatz said.
He said this alarming trend is the result of a reality that he has
uncovered in his research: There are no “moderate” Muslims.
“The simple answer is, Islam itself (through Shariah law) mandates a
Muslim to follow Shariah law 100 percent, and no man-made law can be
placed before Shariah law,” Gaubatz said.
“If a person does not follow Shariah law then they are a non-
practicing Muslim and essentially an apostate of Islam,” Gaubatz said.
Shariah law is the Islamic religious law that seeks to control
societies, through requirements for secular activities and behavior
as well as religious actions.
However, not all defense and national security analysts agree with
J. D. Pendry, a retired command sergeant major, defense analyst and
writer, says that instead of banning groups, we need to
ban “political correctness.”
”The acts of some of them are, as with other “identity” groups, a
symptom of the disease. The disease is liberal social engineering of
the military and its enabler is political correctness,” Pendry said.
“I do not believe that Muslims should be prohibited from the U.S.
military. The acts of some of them are, as with other ‘identity’
groups, a symptom of the disease. The disease is liberal social
engineering of the military and its enabler is political
Pendry says Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan is an example of political
correctness run amok. Hasan stands accused of killing multiple fellow
military members at a Texas base where he reportedly shouted “Allahu
akbar” when he turned his guns on others.
“Hasan was a known entity. His conduct, including his statements that
he made, was ignored by his superiors,” Pendry said.
“Their response – instead of confronting this ‘commissioned officer’ –
was to just transfer him. Why? They feared an equal opportunity
complaint and subsequent inquiry,” Pendry said.
Center for Military Readiness President Elaine Donnelly agrees. She
said the real enemy of effectiveness is liberal social policy.
“I am very concerned about the consequences of ‘diversity metrics’
and political correctness in the military that led to the atrocity at
Fort Hood. I do not agree, however, that there should be no Muslims
in the American military,” Donnelly said.
Gaubatz, however, says there are legitimate reasons. He said Hassan
was a follower of pure Islam and that is ultimately the issue that
has to be acknowledged by the defense establishment.
“That leaves only ‘true’ Muslims who follow Islam as dictated by
prophet Mohammed 1400 years ago. A ‘true’ Muslim cannot put the U.S.
Constitution ahead of Shariah law, and therefore one can’t faithfully
serve in the U.S. military if the U.S. Constitution is not their
number one priority,” Gaubatz said.
“Numerous Islamic scholars say exactly this. Ahmed Sakr a famous
Islamic scholar in the U.S., tells Muslim children all across the
U.S. that they can’t be Muslims if they follow the laws of the U.S.
Congress and U.S. laws. During my research I have talked with several
imams and they have said the same,” Gaubatz said.
Gaubatz says there has to be a “test” to discover the potential
“Based on the words of Islamic scholars I believe a person who says
they are Muslim should be asked before they are sworn in to the U.S.
military if they swear to put the U.S. Constitution ahead of their
beliefs of Shariah law. If they say no then they should not be
allowed to be the first line defenders of our country. If they agree
then they are apostates and apostates of Islam should be allowed,”
However, such a test could create legal challenges and at a minimum,
equal opportunity complaints. Pendry says government officials are
fearful of the administrative inquiries.
“Those are more feared by some so-called leaders than most anything
else. Even in the aftermath, the army chief of staff insisted that
our Army’s greatest strength is diversity. Politically correct
hogwash that was,” Pendry said.
Pendry also says the military’s strength is not diversity, but its
“Army strength comes from being ‘one.’ One in standards, one in
conduct, one in focus, one in mission. There cannot be a gender
group, ethnic group, religion group, sexual orientation group,”
“It is this mentality that has so divided our country that we may
never again be the great melting pot where people of diverse
backgrounds and beliefs combine to make one ‘American’ lover of God
given freedom,” Pendry said.
Pendry adds that the liberal social experimentation, using the
military, is not bringing unity.
“Liberal social engineering is doing to our military services the
same thing it is doing in our country – hopelessly dividing it –
removing the common focus, the common identity and common culture
necessary for survival,” Pendry said.
Pendry says that ultimately, he is opposed to banning certain groups
from military service.
“We do not need to ban any group from service. What we need to ban is
political correctness that attempts to cater to all identity groups
rather than insisting that it is the groups that must conform to one
set of standards and one common focus – defense of our nation and its
Constitution,” Pendry said. (© 2012 WorldNetDaily.com, Inc. 07/10/12)
