None of the benign comments in this article match up to the atmosphere concerning this individual, that I have been hearing about, from the persons whom he worked with, was evaluated by, or lived next to.
I wonder how the Christian who believes that holiness and a righteous indignation toward sin should be an integral part of the Christian walk, is looked upon by the 'Christian' who thinks that such sentiments are austere and radical, and should have no place in the gospel.
Radio Netherlands wrote: Bigger problem Although only the second of these attacks was carried out by a Muslim soldier, Daniel Pipes â€“ an academic on radical Islam â€“ says this is a bigger problem than the US wants to admit. He argues all Muslims entering the police or army should be thoroughly investigated.
â€śAssuming this soldier Hasan was angry at the war, itâ€™s not terribly surprising. There are tensions.

Many people in the military who serve alongside muslims are now going to be very cautious, to say the least, about their safety.
The recent situation where five British soldiers were murdered by an Afghan policeman, they were helping to train, must heighten fears of radicalised "sleeper" extremists anywhere in the world, where their are muslim colleagues serving alongside them.
The question must be dealt with "Is there a solution to the Afghan conflict, or will it remain a focus for all terrorists who want to continue the fight against western interests and influences?"
