Army officer fired for teaching truth about Islam

Remember that jihadist US Army psychologist Nidal Hasan who perpetrated the worst shooting ever to take place on a U.S. military base?

On November 5, 2009, armed with a pistol and a revolver, Hasan entered his workplace — the Soldier Readiness Processing Center at Fort Hood, where personnel receive routine medical treatment immediately prior to and on return from deployment — shot and killed 13 innocent people and wounded another 29.

Despite internal Army reports indicating Hasan’s fellow officers had reported his outspoken sympathy with radical Islam since 2005, and despite eyewitnesses saying that Hasan had shouted “Allahu Akbar!” before opening fire, the U.S. Army and the POS’s administration refused to call the shooting an Islamic terrorist act or even a hate crime.

Now we have more evidence that the U.S. Army is infested with politically-correct “tolerance” fear of offending Islam. An 18-year veteran Army officer was fired from teaching a course on Islam because he had the temerity of actually teaching the truth.

Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley

Chad Groening reports for, September 20, 2012, that Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley — a highly-decorated 1994 graduate of the US Military Academy who has been deployed to Bosnia, Kuwait, and Iraq for 6 combat tours — was relieved of a teaching assignment because he discussed negative aspects of Islam in an elective course entitled “Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism” at the Joint Services Staff College in Norfolk, Virginia.

Richard Thompson, President and chief counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, says a letter sent out by 57 Islamist groups to several government agencies, including the Pentagon, had demanded that action be taken against Lt. Col. Dooley’s teaching. “All information that is offensive to Islam is to be removed,” Thompson summarizes the letter. “And any instructors [of the course] should be disciplined.”

Thompson concludes that the U.S. Army’s dismissal of Dooley was a direct result of the Pentagon bending to Muslims’ will: “the Department of Defense is following the instructions they got from these Muslim organizations.”

To please Muslims, the Army has chosen to scapegoat Lt. Col. Dooley. Thompson says Dooley’s career is being adversely affected: “He was slated to become a colonel and assume a command position. But because they did not like the way he taught the class and the way he portrayed Islam, they have stopped this whole procedure. They decided they were going to give him a negative evaluation and red-flagged his promotion.”

The Thomas More Law Center, a law firm that specializes in the defense of the civil rights and liberties of Christians, is considering a federal lawsuit aimed at vindicating Dooley’s rights to free speech and academic freedom.

And you just know the repubs are going just jump all over this any minute now.

Yes, that was sarcasm.



What is going on with our government??? We apologize to Libya & Pakistan, we fire a decorated veteran for telling the truth, when does it stop?? When do they stop caving in and stand up for America?? Even if Romney gets in, can he possibly stop all this? He’s got a ton of work to do. I find it idiotic that so many of these issues come down to a law suit. It’s pitiful that people have to sue their own government to try to get them to do the right thing. I wonder how many law suits are on… Read more »


Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this informative post. I, too, was facing disciplinary action for having a picture of St. Thomas More in my chambers and Hearing Room. The Thomas More Law Center helped me, ready to defend me if anything happened. I told my superior that I had a wonderful work record and that the picture was not coming down because it helped me to be a good judge, and that if they want, they could fire me. They backed off and the picture stayed. I pray that Lt. Col. Dooley wins his fight against this most unjust action… Read more »


Just tell them to bring evidence to the fact that anything he taught was not factual. That can only demonstrate that what is being taught within our “approved” defense education is propaganda….not truth of history. No wonder cases against Obama never even get started….our judges are afraid to face the facts or have them publicly admitted to a court of supposedly U.S. law. We now have toadies to a totalitarian gov. regime, easily surrendering their and our sovereignty and freedoms….committing national suicide by their own cowardly actions. I never knew the military was so eager to lose and sacrifice those… Read more »
