Our Soldiers of Islam

It’s not often I say this, but this photo by Dallas Morning News photographer Sonya N. Hebert offers a powerful, important and very timely contribution following Maj. Nidal Hasan’s Ft. Hood killing spree.

The photo shows Sgt. Fahad Kamal of Houston praying today during Friday prayer services at the Islamic Community of Greater Killeen — the same center where Maj. Hasan attended prayer services before beginning his rampage.

I couldn’t think of a more eloquent picture — one we can very much use right now — actively demonstrating both joint allegiance and uniform devotion.
