Post-9/11
Exclusive: Pamela Geller agrees with Ground Zero imam about influence of Islam

“I would give the
greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York’s skyline. Particularly
when one can’t see the details. Just the shapes. The shapes and the thought
that made them. The sky over New York and the will of man made visible. …When I
see the city from my window – no, I don’t feel how small I am – but I feel that
if a war came to threaten this, I would throw myself into space, over the city,
and protect these buildings with my body.”
Ayn Rand

War came to
this city. And like a mother who protects her young, her family, I threw
myself into space, over the city, to protect these buildings, this city, this
nation from these savage invaders. And I have spent the last 12 years in this
terrible battle fighting the enemy without and within.

I am asked how
does one go from being a housewife and mom to one of the world’s leading “racist,”
“bigoted” “hatemongers” – as I am described by the Islamic supremacists and
their media muppets. The answer is, how can any freedom-loving human being not fight
to defend what is good and right, even at great personal cost? If anyone had
said to me on September 12, 2001 that those of us fighting the ideology and its
adherents behind the worst attack on American soil would be the perceived
enemy, I would have said that you were out of your mind. And yet that is
exactly where we are.

William F.
Buckley wrote on October 2, 2001: “It is thought to be a sign of
toleration to defer to Islam as simply another religion. It isn't that. It is a
form of condescension. Carefully selected, there are Koranic preachments that
are consistent with civilized life. But on September 11th we were looked in the
face by a deed done by Muslims who understood themselves to be acting out
Muslim ideals. It is all very well for individual Muslim spokesmen to assert
the misjudgment of the terrorist, but the Islamic world is substantially made
up of countries that ignore, or countenance, or support terrorist activity.”

NRO would never
run a column like that today. Who would have thought we'd run into the ditch
we’re in when there were people seeing things this clearly back then — people
who already had a name and substance?

When Islamic
supremacist Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf, the “holy man” behind the Ground Zero
mosque, said “9/11 was a watershed, was a major
milestone, and a major catalytic force in, in catalyzing the attention towards
the issue of Islam, its presence in the West, and it brought into much greater
prominence our work and the importance of our work,”
he was absolutely
right. Twelve years later, the President of the United States is Barack Hussein
Obama, and he is waging wars on behalf of Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Wal-Mart employees are fired for making jokes on Facebook about a burka. Large
corporations are mosqueing the workplace. Public school curriculums have
instituted lessons proselytizing for Islam. The Department of Defense, the FBI
and Law Enforcement agencies haves scrubbed, under an edict by the Obama
administration, all references to jihad in all counter terrorism materials.

Scholars of
Islam, human rights activists who dare speak of the most extreme and anti-human
ideology on the face of the earth are demonized, marginalized and rendered
toxic. There is a prohibition on the truth, in accordance with the blasphemy
laws under the sharia. Politicians who speak of jihad and sharia are targeted
by powerful and influential terrorist organizations in the US like CAIR, ISNA,
ICNA, MSA, MAS, and their political futures are destroyed. Colleges and
universities have become hotbeds of jihad activity, and antisemitism is rife on
campus. Islamic anti-Semitism, incited by Islamic Jew-hatred, is at worldwide
record levels, and religious minorities living in Muslim countries are
oppressed, subjugated and murdered.

The number of deadly global jihad attacks since
September 11, 2001 is close to 22,000 (and that’s counting only those with
casualties). There were also jihad plots to destroy the Brooklyn Bridge, to set
off cyanide gas in the New York subway and to subway system, to bomb the New
York Stock Exchange and the Federal Reserve building, to nuke Manhattan’s
Garment District, to bomb JFK Airport, to bomb synagogues in the Bronx and
Manhattan, to bomb Times Square, and on and on and on.

We have thwarted hundreds of attacks in the
homeland. And yet the Boston jihad bombing is portrayed in the media as a
failure our treatment of immigrants coming to America. The Fort Hood jihad is
called “workplace violence” by the Pentagon. And New York Mayor Bloomberg
suggested that the Times Square bomber might have been dissatisfied with his
health care coverage. The Times Square bombing would have dwarfed the 9/11 death
toll had the bomb gone off. Muslim terrorists attacked our consulate in
Benghazi on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11 and slaughtered our Ambassador and
three attaches. No one has been held responsible or been brought to justice.

Ten
years after 9/11, public schools finally made September 11 part of their
history coverage, but in that it is a day of service. Not who or why is taught.
Just some fuzzy, leftist do-gooder narrative that disarms the generation that
is going to have to fight this global scourge.

Those
of us who took up the fight in the information battlespace faced a propaganda
machine financed by the richest Muslim countries in the world. Americans were
daunted by the complexity of this new kind of war — not a war of nations,
race, or color but a worldwide ideology that transcended borders. And when
George W. Bush assured Americans that it was not an ideology but a radical few,
Americans wanted to believe it. Because it was far easier to believe and accept
than the alternative. But for those who knew and opposed this supremacist
scourge, the fight was just beginning.

Twelve
years of fierce activism continues. On September
11, 2013 we will be at Ground Zero
<, as we are every year,
fighting for freedom and individual rights. On this terrible anniversary will
be the Congressional vote to intervene militarily on the side of Al Qaeda in
Syria. We demand intervention on behalf of Syrian Christians and Coptic
Christians terrorized by Muslim terror in Egypt. Speakers include 911 Family
member Nelly Braginsky, who lost her only son Alec, 9/11 first responder Alan
T. DeVona, Sudanese human rights activist Simon Deng, and Coptic Christian
human rights activist Ashraf Ramelah.

Our
9/11 press conference will advocate for the honorable and respectful interment
of unidentified 9/11 human remains at Ground Zero – not inside the Museum, as
planned. Nearly a decade ago, 9/11 families were promised in writing by the
Lower Manhattan Development Corporation (LMDC) in 2003 that these remains would
be located in a “separate and distinct repository – separate from any museum or
visitor center.” But city officials and the Museum directors reneged on that
promise, and plan to place 9,000 unidentified remains 70 feet (seven stories)
below ground – where their relatives will be charged $25 admission to visit.

The
press conference will also address the non-patriotic theme of the National
September 11 Memorial and Museum, including the absence of American flags on
the site (there is only one flag at the site, and that one was originally put up
by construction workers and then moved to the edge of the site where it can
barely be seen at all). This is consistent with the initial rejection by
National September 11 Memorial and Museum creative director Michael Shulan’s
initial rejection of the iconic flag-raising photo in the Museum, complaining
that it was “too rah-rah American.”

Press
conference speakers will also note the fact that the photos of the 9/11 jihad
terrorists, plus their martyrdom quotes, will be prominently displayed in the
Museum, while information on the victims will be in a kiosk, much less
prominently displayed. The victims’ photos will be twelve feet above the floor
on one wall (3,000-plus photos), while those of the 19 jihadis will have their
own wall, with their murderous statements and artifacts at eye level.

In
order to defeat our enemies, history cannot be scrubbed, whitewashed or made
over.  The truth must be told, and it is
the duty of every American to stand for truth, justice and the American way.
Now more than ever, each one of us must report for duty. The enemy never sleeps,
and as horrific as 9/11 was, what awaits us is far, far worse.
