Military brass invited a Muslim cleric to pray at Navy SEALs’ service — and he proceeded to damn them (in Arabic)

Portraits of Navy SEALs killed in helicopter crash

This one really got my goat.  I wrote it for Mr. Conservative, but I want it to be here too.  It’s not enough that Obama’s careless boasts got the SEALs (and 21 others) killed.  It’s that, when all honors should have been paid to them, the gutless, PC, Obama Pentagon (I’m mad at the brass, not at the troops) decided to invite a Muslim cleric to give an invocation.  They probably didn’t even bother to find out what he would say or what he did say.  I’m really steamed about this lack of respect:

On May 2, 2011, United States SEALS raided Osama bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound in Pakistan and killed the man who masterminded the 9/11 terror attacks that left 2,996 people, mostly Americans, dead. The moment the mission concluded, President Obama was boasting about the details – including identifying SEAL Team 6 as the team responsible for the raid.

President Obama’s loose lips left the Special Forces community in shock because an important part of their operating procedure is anonymity. Three months later, on August 6, 2011, the Taliban shot down the helicopter in which 17 members of SEAL Team 6 and twenty-one other American and Afghani troops were traveling, killing all of them.

For Obama, the bin Laden raid was a personal triumph, and he boasted loudly about his role in it, in order to boost his political credentials. For the SEAL Team 6 members, the raid’s political aftermath was an entirely unnecessary death sentence. These men willingly and cheerfully served their country, but none of them intended to die as a political sacrifice to Obama’s ambitions.

Aside from an October 2011 report on the men’s death, Washington has forgotten about these men who not only died in America’s service, but were sacrificed on Obama’s political altar. Their families and friends haven’t forgotten though, and convened a press conference in Washington on Thursday, during which they revealed a truly shocking fact.

The gathered families played a video showing the official funeral that the military held in Kabul for the victims of the attack on the helicopter. Although there were generic references in English to “God”, the military barred any mention of Jesus Christ. The military did, however, invite a Muslim cleric to speak at the funeral. The Muslim cleric recited a long prayer, in Arabic. Later, the families had that prayer translated and were outraged to learn that the cleric damned the fallen troops as infidels – at their own funeral! The translation you see in the video and below is a certified translation:

Amen. I shelter in Allah from the devil who has been cast with stones.
In the name of Allah the merciful forgiver.
The companions of the “fire”
(The sinners and infidels who are fodder for hell fire)
ARE NOT EQUAL WITH the companions of heaven.
The companions of heaven (Muslims) are the winners.
Had we sent this Koran to a mountain, you would have seen the mountain prostrated in fear of Allah.
(Mocking the God of Moses)
Such examples are what we present to the people, so that they would think.
(repent and convert to Islam)
Blessings are to your God (Allah) the God of glory and what they describe.
And peace be upon the messengers (prophets) and thanks be to Allah the lord of both universes (mankind and Jinn).

In addition, the gathered families reiterated what those not in thrall to Obama had already realized: this funeral need never have happened. Their sons, husbands, brothers, and fathers died because the White House, by identifying SEAL Team 6 as the team responsible for bin Laden’s death effectively ensured their death. “In releasing their [the SEAL Team 6 members’] identity, they put a target on their backs,” said Doug Hamburger, whose son, Army Staff Sgt. Patrick Hamburger, was a crew member on the helicopter.

The Team 6 members knew that they were targets. According to Bill Vaughn, his son, Petty Officer 1st Class Aaron Vaughn called his parents after the White House released information about the Team’s identity. Vaughn remembers that “He said, ‘Mom, there’s chatter. My life is in danger. Your life is in danger. Get everything off your social media. Our families are in danger.’”

As with anything that could tarnish Obama’s reputation, the mainstream media will most assuredly ignore this press conference. It’s up to us, therefore, to ensure that these stories live on. Please use social media, or just old-fashioned socializing, to let your friends know about this press conference. The seventeen SEAL Team 6 members and the twenty-one men who died with them on August 6, 2011, deserve at least that much.

    Our military has been compromised – period. The burden fell to the families to expose this open hostility, but it was sanctioned and approved by the brASS. This is one hell of a recruiting tool/sarc off.

    Nothing surprising or unusual here. How could you be surprised when the commandant of the Naval Academy proudly stated he viewed his number one job was to promote diversity. This is simply DIVERSITY in it’s purest and most treasured form by the elites and their slobbering followers. Who really gives a damn if the country is protected?

    Slaves don’t need a military to protect them. And a military does not need a population of slaves to serve and protect.
     
    Try not to underestimate the Left in one’s dying days.

    11B often supports the idea of a draft, as a way to revitalize American civic virtues. I often counter that the US military won’t be in any state to revitalize anything given the current strategic trends. The Left, as always, takes a working organization and turns it to darkness and evil. That has always and will always be the case.
     
    The only thing that would ever have stopped them would be to kill evil. But if you don’t kill evil, not even the US military institutions can reverse their shadow over the US.
     
    Only when humans hate evil will they get the spine to do anything about it. Until then, we wait until the rising crest of the Revolution. Logic and IQ are overvalued in war for most of the participants. Emotion and motivation amounts to almost everything required for victory. A handful of intelligent people at the top can run a war well. But a handful of people motivated by patriotism is too few.
     
    The Left’s slave economy solves the issue of manpower by merely making more slaves. What’s the solution of the patriots then?

    I’m not sure the cleric was intentionally damning or mocking the troops.  He was simply reading a verse from the Quran.  Unfortunately, just about any verse in the Quran suitable for a funeral “prayer” is warning about how the infidels are going to burn in hell or how believers will share this fate if they allow infidels to sway them.  There are hundreds of such passages in the Quran.  Far more than passages exhorting believers to violence, this is the idea that comes thru the clearest when one reads the Quran — fear of the wrath of Allah if one strays an inch from the righteous path.
     
    There are also innumerable passages of “religious trash talk”, some of it quite clever, where Islam trashes  the rival religions of the time — Judaism, Christianity, Meccan idol worship.  In a sense, Islam came into being in apposition to these three religions — so this militant talk is endemic

    Surely there must be some verses, somewhere in the Koran or in a Sura, that would honor those fallen in service to their country?  
     
    Psalm 23 comes to mind: “Yeah, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death…”  There must be something in the Koran, somewhere, that while not as wel-said, might similarly serve?  But no, instead we get a boiler-plate Koranic quote that basically says “Islam and Allah will kick your infidel ass from here to eternity, every time, just as it did to these soldiers right here dead in front of you.”
     
    And our military leadership said nothing in protest, and will say nothing in protest. Shameful.
