Uh oh ... this has some ugly overtones (emphasis depressingly added):
Hasan was ‘mortified’ about deployment
Relatives: Ft. Hood suspect upset over being harassed about being Muslim
WASHINGTON - Born and reared in Virginia, the son of immigrant parents from a small Palestinian town near Jerusalem, he joined the Army right out of high school, against his parents’ wishes. The Army, in turn, put him through college and then medical school, where he trained to be a psychiatrist.
But Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the 39-year-old man accused of Thursday’s mass shooting at Fort Hood, Tex., started having second thoughts about his military career a few years ago after other soldiers harassed him for being a Muslim, he told relatives in Virginia.
By way of response, Canada's Blogging Tories reacted predictably to this tragedy by -- you guessed it -- mocking and ridiculing Muslims. Yeah, that's just the approach you want to take here. What could possibly go wrong?
