Selective Killing

June 22, 2011

According to Pajamas Media, conscientious objector status was recently granted to U.S. Army soldier, PFC Nasser Abdo, who refused to deploy to Afghanistan under the claim that Islamic law prevented him from killing other Muslims.

So it's okay to kill people, except if they're Muslim? Never mind that devout Muslims have been killing other Muslims for centuries now (not to mention non-Muslims, which of course is permitted under the Religion of Peace), or that Islamic law runs contrary to basic rules of civilized society. It seems that we, Americans, are just too afraid of our politically-correct shadows to stand up and say, sharia (Islamic) law runs contrary to everything we believe in, and we will not subordinate ourselves (or our laws) to it.

Is PFC Abdo a Conscientious Objector or a Conscientious Hypocrite? You decide, although our chattering-class would no doubt call him (another) "extremist distorting a religion that reaffirms peace, fairness, tolerance."
