When you actually sit down and realize the upside-down world in which we now live, we can only hope and pray the end is painless. But as history well teaches us, the end of freedom is always brutal. The Fort Hood shootings was a terrorist attack. Major Nidal Hasan self-identified as a ‘Soldier of Allah’; he himself wanted to kill infidels for the sake of Islamic jihad; and he himself now wants to sport a trendy ‘Afghan-style’ beard because that is what devout Muslims do. In the face of literal truth we still have to call this workplace violence.
