Nidal Hasan convicted for jihad murders

The jihad murderer at Fort Hood, who was able to go that far because of political cowardice in the army, has been convicted for his crimes:
A jury of military officers found U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Hasan guilty of multiple counts of murder and attempted murder in connection with a shooting at Fort Hood in 2009 that killed 13 people and injured more than 30 others.

The verdict was widely expected given that Maj. Hasan admitted at the start of the court-martial he had shot soldiers who were preparing to deploy to Afghanistan, saying he was trying to defend fellow Muslims who he believed had been unfairly targeted by U.S. forces.

In total, the Army psychiatrist was convicted of all 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder against him.

"This day has been a long time coming" said Lovickie Byrd, a Killeen resident who worked as a civilian finance specialist at the building where the shooting spree occurred on November 5, 2009—one of the worst incidents of soldier-on-soldier violence in U.S. military history.

Ms. Byrd wasn't wounded but said she continues to suffer post-traumatic stress from living through the event. "I'm very happy," she said. "This verdict is one step closer to closure."

A sentencing hearing will begin Monday to decide whether Maj. Hasan receives a sentence of life in prison or death. The hearing will be held by the same panel of jurors.
Let's hope he gets the latter sentence. Another trial to be faced in the depths of hell would do him quite a lot of good. He deserves to have his head sliced off the same way the jihadists in whose name he acted are behaving. A very repulsive man he is, and deserves to be punished with a taste of his own poison.

Update: the National Post says that death is something both relatives of the victims and the culprit seek. Again, no matter what Hasan wants, that should not deter justice from handing him the death sentence he fully deserves. All they need to do is execute him in a way he might not quite expect, one that would be very, very painful.

There also appears to be a misleading view presented in here by an Islamist:
Martyrdom manifests itself in the Islamic holy book, the Qur’an, in two ways, said Emran El-Badawi, director of the Arab studies program at the University of Houston.

The shahid — or martyr — is adopted in one sense from Christianity and other early religions as someone who dies for the faith and goes to paradise alongside prophets and saints. Martyrs also appear in the Qur’an as fallen soldiers or those who died in battle, he said.

Later, in the 9th and 10th centuries, the idea of martyrdom evolved to include people who died accidentally, such as in a fire. But only in the past century have some Muslims regarded those who die in jihad, or holy war, as martyrs, El-Badawi said.

“They feel that they are defending the faith,” he said. “And this is, I think, the most extreme interpretation of what a martyr is in Islam.”
Uh uh. Jihad with shahidism has been part and parcel of Islam since its inception in the 7th century. And Judaism and Christianity views martyrdom as someone who was murdered for his/her beliefs, not someone who dies in battle attacking civilized societies. For example, there was a woman named Hannah with 7 sons in Biblical times who were murdered for their beliefs. Houston's got one very atrocious man working at their varsity.
