BREAKING: U.S. Military Dress Code To Now Allow Muslim Friendly Beards And Turbans

The Obama Administration’s Pentagon is set to alter longstanding military uniform practices in order to allow more Muslim and Sikh friendly rules that would welcome full beards and turbans to be worn as part of official military dress.  The new rules are being done under the guise of “religious freedom”.

My own opinion – this is PC madness and a dangerous precedent.

Change in military dress policy will allow for turbans, beards if worn for religious reasons: Report

The Pentagon is expected to announce changes today to rules governing religious items and uniform regulations, NBC News is reporting.

The change would allow beards, some religious tattoos and turbans to be worn by members in uniform.

NBC News obtained a draft of Department of Defense instructions that said the military will make every effort to accommodate “individual expressions of sincerely held beliefs” of service members. The memo said unless the items have an adverse impact on readiness, order or discipline, commanders will be allowed to grant special permission for personnel to wear religious article while in uniform.

…According to the NBC report, there are 3 Sikhs in the U.S. military and about 3,700 Muslims, 6,300 Buddhists and 1,500 Wiccans.  LINK

__________________________________

If the United States had forced military service, I could entertain some argument to allow modification of the military dress code.  As it is, we are a volunteer military.  People choose to serve, and as such, can be required to accommodate strict military uniform guidelines regardless of religious background.

Combine this “new” uniform policy via the Obama administration, with the recent removal of crosses atop military chapels, and a still just months old scandal involving updated military training manuals classifying Christian groups as terrorists, and the picture becomes undeniably clear as to the anti Christian bent of the Obama administration’s supervision over our United States Military.

And note too, that there are just THREE Sikhs presently serving in the U.S. Military.  This policy change has nothing to do with a minority of three, but rather is appeasement to the increasingly powerful Muslim lobby in Washington D.C., and the thousands of Muslims already serving in our military.  While most are likely serving with distinction and honor, they were clearly able to do so before this policy change, so why the move to make said change now?

I would also remind readers that the last notable Muslim-American who complained about the U.S. Military’s denial of his “religious freedoms” shot and killed 13 people and wounded 30 others at Fort Hood while screaming out in Arabic that “God is great”.  He has been receiving a military salary paid by YOU the taxpayer, ever since, and the Obama administration refused to cite the tragedy as a “terrorist attack”, instead dismissing it as merely “workplace violence”.

MAC WALKER’S BENGHAZI takes readers on a thrilling ride of action and intrigue and allows them a glimpse into a younger version of this much loved character as he and his military guns for hire team take an assignment into the dangerous world that is Benghazi, Libya days before the now infamous Benghazi Massacre. It is a fast paced military thriller where men and women of action find themselves facing an enemy far greater and more powerful than they imagined.   LINK

    • The Pentagram’s new motto:

      “Be all that you can be – as long as you’re not openly Christian.”

      Once this administration comes to an end, sanity can be restored. Won’t happen under Hillary, though: she hates (real) Christians as much as the Princess does.

      Both Hillary and the Princess hate the military, so they do everything they can to make it fail, to undermine its foundations, to make it weak and as worthless as a UN Peacekeeping force. Except when they want to use it for their own evil purposes – and maybe use them against Americans. And then the troops would suffer – as they’ve already being steadily disconnected from the American people as a result of the decisions politicians are making.

      Support our troops.

    • Predictable — this was reported by WND back in 2011: excerpts

      After intervention by the Council on American Islamic Relations, the Defense Department reportedly decided it will now allow Muslim students participating in the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps to wear headscarves and turbans while in uniform.

      The decision marks the latest influence by controversial Islamic groups on military affairs.

      WND previously broke the story that an Islamic group that has been closely tied to the Muslim Brotherhood and was named by the Justice Department as an unindicted co-conspirator in a scheme to raise money for Hamas is the official endorsing agency for the U.S. Armed Forces Muslim chaplain program.

      The Islamic Society of North America, or ISNA, also runs regular events for the military’s Muslim chaplains.

      WND also reported the Army’s Muslim chaplain program was founded by a terror-supporting convict while the Army’s first Islamic chaplain, who is still serving, has been associated with a charity widely accused of serving as an al-Qaida front.

      On Thursday, CAIR announced its activism was responsible for the decision to allow Muslim garb in the JROTC.

      Discover the Networks notes that ISNA –through its Saudi-government-backed affiliate the North American Islamic Trust – reportedly holds the mortgages on 50 percent to 80 percent of all mosques in the U.S. and Canada.

      ISNA was founded in 1981 by the Saudi-funded Muslim Students’ Association, which was founded partially by the Muslim Brotherhood. The two groups are still partners.

      WND attended an MSA event at which violence against the U.S. was urged by speakers.

      ISNA was named in a May 1991 Muslim Brotherhood document – “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America” – as one of the Brotherhood’s likeminded “organizations of our friends” who shared the common goal of destroying America and turning it into a Muslim nation.

      Islam scholar Stephen Schwartz describes ISNA as “one of the chief conduits through which the radical Saudi form of Islam passes into the United States.”

      According to terrorism expert Steven Emerson, ISNA “is a radical group hiding under a false veneer of moderation” that publishes a bimonthly magazine, Islamic Horizons, that “often champions militant Islamist doctrine.”

    • Interesting: just as they’re making it easier for Muleskins to enter the military, the administration shows it’s Haman-like intentions as it attempts to suppress growing Jewish opposition to it’s anti-Israel policies:

      “The Obama administration is worried that Israel is riling up American Jews, according to a report in the Israeli press. The allegations are detailed in a story headlined, “‘US perceives Israel as encouraging anti-Obama backlash among Jews,’” which appears in the Jerusalem Post.

      The Post report reads, “A US official close to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry said both men are disturbed over what is being perceived in their inner circle as ‘Jewish activism in Congress’ that they think is being encouraged by the Israeli government, Israel Radio reported on Thursday.

      “The official has informed Israeli government figures that the president and secretary of state are disappointed over repeated attacks made against them by leading members of the Jewish community in the US.

      “According to Israel Radio, Israeli diplomats and foreign officers have warned against this trend. According to officials based in foreign missions, the Israeli government is increasingly being viewed as fanning the flames among American Jews by encouraging them to promote the official government position while making no room for opposing viewpoints.”‘

      http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/report-obama-admin-worries-israel-riling-jews_775261.html

      Little Debbie Doberman-Schnauzer from Fla. is getting an earful from Jewish voters, as they ask her where she stands on Iran v. Israel, and why she is against the sanctions that the Dems want removed. Must be getting hot, as Debbie Doberman is increasingly feeling the burn on her hairy little foot pads. (Woof, she says.)

      Now the administration wants Jewish voters to be sequestered from the influence of Israel! Little Debbie simultaneously goes “Woof, woof!” to that, enthusiastically barking as President Haman continues to plot the destruction of the Jewish state. She ain’t no Esther.

      The code words are there for all to see, clear as day: “Jewish activism in Congress.” Hmmm. Obama/Kerry sounds more and more like Aryan Nation every day…
