A Beheading In Oklahoma

Islam is the trigger.  

And here in America now — in the 21st Century.

Oklahoma man beheaded female co-worker and stabbed another while reportedly shouting Islamic phrases

...Alton Nolen, 30, killed Colleen Hufford, 54, at the Vaughan Foods processing plant before an off-duty reserve Oklahoma County Deputy that works for the company shot him, Moore police said during a Friday morning media briefing, according to KWTV.

He also stabbed Tracy Johnson, 43, authorities said. She is in critical condition but expected to recover from her injuries.

The deputy has been identified by the station as Mark Vaughan, the company's chief operating officer. Vaughan shot him multiple times with a rifle, sources told KFOR.

Police said Nolen had recently been terminated from his job on the company's production line and began the rampage by ramming at least one vehicle in the parking lot before entering the building.

Nolen was taken to a nearby hospital and is expected to recover, cops said. He was in the process of converting to Islam, KFOR reported.

Federal agents with the FBI have been called in after it was reported Nolen was shouting Islamic phrases during the attack and previously tried to also convert co-workers to Islam, KWTV reported.

Nolen has multiple tattoos on his torso including one that says "as-salaamu ataikum," a common Arabic greeting, according to Oklahoma Department of Corrections records. He also has praying hands tattooed on his body....

We shouldn't really be surprised or shocked, however.

Islam is as Islam does.

Breaking My Silence

I'm not yet ready to return to full-time blogging. This nasty cough still grinds on (What a virus!), and my workload isn't quite under control.  I should assign less work to my students, I suppose.

The above said, with the United States now embarking upon a non-war (What is this thing, exactly?), here's something to discuss for the next few days (not my "typical blogging style"):

The ugly truth is this, and all the wishing otherwise will not change the truth....

The problem is Islam.

Never Forget

The monster of Islamic terrorism came roaring from cerulean skies in passenger jetliners used as missiles. 

Jihad came to America.

Jihad is still being waged against America.

Sick! Again!

(If you must have politics, please scroll down)

I seem to have come down with "the common cold": nasal drainage, sore throat, productive cough, zero appetite, etc.

It's not unusual for us teachers to come down with a cold the first few weeks of school. I probably picked up this virus from one of my students or their parents.

If I'm not better in a few days, I'll go to the doctor.  Unless my symptoms worsen significantly, I'll still be going to work — and blogging as I'm able to do so.

George W. Bush's 2007 Statement

On July 12, 2007 (hat tip to Infidel Bloggers Alliance):

Text of the speech, in case that the above video again becomes unavailable:
To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we are ready would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region and for the United States.

It would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to al Qaida. It would mean that we’d be risking mass killings on a horrific scale. It would mean we’d allow the terrorists to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan. It would mean increasing the probability that American troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous.
GWB wasn't always right. Not by a long shot. The above statement from George W. Bush now seems prophetic, however.
