Muslims and Gays Potential Conflict in the Military

Jack Kemp

In reading former Egyptian Muslim Nonie Darwish's new book about the "Arab Spring," entitled "The Devil We Don't Know," I came across this reference about an obvious potential deadly conflict between Gays and Muslims serving in the U.S. military, a place where weapons and explosives are part of everyday life.

In a January, 2010 statement worth repeating to those who didn't get to read it in the New York Times or hear it on MS-NBC (because I don't believe either mentioned it), Worldnet Daily stated in an article:


Vanderbilt University is distancing itself from a Muslim chaplain after he told a gathering of students homosexuality is punishable by death under Islam.

“I don’t have a choice as a Muslim to accept or reject teachings. I go with what Islam teaches,” said Awadh A. Binhazim, who is listed on the Vanderbilt website as “Adjunct Professor of Islam at the Divinity School” and an adviser to the Muslim Student Association. His comments came earlier this week at a diversity event for students.

The concluding paragraphs are quite a revelation of a discussion between someone who actually believes or is attempting to merely exploit political correctness and someone who wants to get to the truth (Saucier):


The reaction has just started to develop, but Saucier wrote that immediately after the meeting a “rather flustered girl” demanded to know why he asked the question.

“Why would you ask some irrelevant question like that?” she said.

“I think my question was quite relevant, since there are a number of homosexuals in the military,” Saucier replied.
“So?” she responded.

“Well let me put it this way. If I was a homosexual in the military, I would want to know if the religion of the person fighting next to me demands my death. That would be significant to me,” he said.

“Well I learned in Sunday school that Christianity condemns homosexuality too!” the girl said.

“Yes, Christianity does consider homosexuality sinful, and Christians pray for homosexuals because of it, while Islamic law says they should be punished with death. See the difference?” he responded.


One wonders if this "idealistic utopian" (read: brainwashed by the school system) young woman is capable of seeing the difference at this point in her life - or ever. Of course, if she never serves in the military, this would be perceived as “not her problem” – just the potential problem of 300 million other Americans.
