rally will begin with a brief memorial service for the victims of the
9/11 attacks, featuring prayers offered by a rabbi, a minister and a
priest for the families of the victims and for the nation.
One of the buglers playing Taps is Tom Butterfield.
He is a descendant of General Daniel Butterfield,
who wrote "Taps" during the Civil War.
The acclaimed vocalist Sarah Lee Michaels will sing the National Anthem.
Hosting the rally are Pamela Geller,
the popular blogger and columnist who publishes the acclaimed
AtlasShrugs.com blog and executive director of FDI and SIOA; and SIOA
associate director Robert Spencer, the bestselling author and director of JihadWatch.org. Geller is the author (with Spencer) of The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War on America (foreword by Ambassador John Bolton), published by Simon & Schuster.
Responding to requests from a faction of 9/11 family members who asked her not to hold the rally on September 11,
Geller said: "I would have canceled the rally, but due to the large
number of family members who have contacted me and asked us to help them
speak out for their loved ones and give them a voice to express their
opinions, in all conscience I cannot postpone the rally."
the Ground Zero mosque is not an issue of religious freedom, but of
resisting an effort to insult the victims of 9/11 and to establish a
beachhead for political Islam and Islamic supremacism in New York. Ground Zero mosque imam Feisal Abdul Rauf
is an open proponent of Sharia, Islamic law, a system that denies the
freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, and the equality of rights
of all people before the law. Given the thousands of triumphal mosques
that have been built on the cherished sites of conquered peoples
throughout Islamic history, the mosque leaders' claim that this mosque
would be understood differently by Muslims worldwide lack foundation.
Free citizens are coming from all over the U.S. to attend the rally.
Pamela reports cars, trucks and vans will be festooned with yellow ribbons,
flags, flags and more flags as they drive across America to the 9/11 Day
