Watch for the cries of "Islamophobia" and "hate" from Hamas-linked CAIR and others. Meanwhile, however, this clown show over Hasan's Islamic beard has derailed his murder trial long enough, and successfully diverted attention away from the fact that he committed mass murder in the name of the same religion by whose teachings he grew this most controversial of beards.
"Judge Orders Accused Fort Hood Shooter Hasan to be Shaved," from KCEN TV, September 6 (thanks to David):
UPDATE (KCEN) -- Judge Gross has ordered Hasan to be shaved.
Hasan now has the chance to appeal with the Army Court of Criminal Appeals.
The judge also said no more pretrial hearings will be held until the issue is resolved.
(KCEN) -- In the most recent pre-trial hearing in the case of accused Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan, the accused was allowed to remain in the courtroom, despite him still not being clean-shaven.
In previous hearings, Hasan has been found in contempt, fined and removed from the court to watch proceedings via video because his beard violates Army standards.
So far today, he has been allowed to remain in the room.
Judge Gross has heard evidence as to whether Hasan's beard is a genuine expression of his Muslim faith or not.
The government is arguing that he is using the beard to try to disguise himself so that he cannot be recognized in court.
The defense disagrees, saying Hasan has already made it clear he wants to plead guilty to the charges so there is no reason for him to disguise himself.
The prosecution is also saying that Hasan is using his beard in an attempt to affiliate himself with the Mujahideen, a group of Muslims who struggle in the path of God....
