Regarding my column today on Muslim Doctor Terrorists–NOT a new phenomenon–a insightful friend in the know reminds me of a few Muslim doctors with ties to terrorism, about whom I’ve written in the past but forgot on my list:
The quotation from the Koran you cited in your most recent posting [DS: it's part of the Muslim Doctors' Oath] was also cited by Osama Bin Laden as justification for jihad. When he cited it he considered American presence in Saudi Arabia as “mischief in the land.” [DS: And I've heard Muslims cite it against Jews and Christians at many Muslim events and charity fundraisers I've attended undercover.]
Muslims demand excellence at being an obedient Muslim, everything else is secondary. They often do well in medical school as far as marks are concerned because they concentrate on book learning and have, other than their faith, very few diversions.
Please be reminded of another group of doctors – those who work with KinderUSA (son of the Holy Land Foundation), specifically of Laila Al Marayati and Riad Abdelkarim. The latter went to Palestine in May or so of 2002 with Dr. Dallel Mohammed (not an MD). They took monies collected at an April 2002 fundraiser and were caught by Israeli security handing over the funds to a Hamas operative. They were detained in an Israeli jail, and a large orgy of publicity ensued. The two came back martyrs and deceptively claimed they had faced down Israeli officials. Why the Israeli authorities did not try them in light of the evidence, who knows? – probably because they were American citizens. They used their experience for fundraising efforts.
