On a beautiful, bright blue sunny morning, a perfect day in mid-September. Nothing was ever the same.
18 years ago, 19 Muslim terrorists took down the World Trade Center and took out parts of the Pentagon, while the Capitol building narrowly escaped attack when passengers on Flight 93 fought back. In their last letters, the jihadis detailed their motivation. “Remind your brothers that this act is for Almighty Allah.” Read the ‘martyrdom’ letters.
Today seven years ago, our embassy in Benghazi was attacked, our Ambassador and members of his team were slaughtered by jihad terrorists.
The horror and death was on a scale that was unimaginable in America. People, who just hours earlier, had their morning joe, kissed their wives or husbands, took their children to school, maybe grabbed a McMuffin and hurried into the city to get to their desks, were faced with the most shocking, horrific imminent death. Men and women waving shirts or jackets stood on the gashed edge of a gaping wound at the top floors of the towers. No one could get to them. No one could help them. The heat from the flames of the airplane turned into a fireball that left people with no choice. Burn to death or jump. Hundreds jumped to their deaths. “It looked like they were blinded by smoke… they just walked to the edge and fell out.”
When they hit the pavement, their bodies were not so much broken as obliterated.
Eyewitnesses talked of a couple who held hands as they fell.
One woman, in a final act of modesty, appeared to be holding down her skirt. Others tried to make parachutes out of curtains or tablecloths, only to have them wrenched from their grip by the force of their descent.
The fall was said to take about ten seconds. If someone fell head down with their body straight, as if in a dive, it could be 200mph. When they hit the pavement, their bodies were not so much broken as obliterated.
The sound of the bodies hitting the pavement was deafening. I did not hear them at the time — but in the beginning, in the news reports, before all the news regarding the jumpers were censored and scrubbed, I heard the sound then.
And so 18 years since September 11th and where are we? Our first amendment rights are on death watch. We have a Jew hating jihad caucus in Congress. Our schools proselytize for Islam. There is a genocide of Christians in the Middle east and Africa by Muslim groups. The jihad against the Jewish State is at fever pitch. Europe has fallen after opening their gates to an invading force. The West’s submission to the most brutal and extreme ideology on the planet is the great catastrophe of the 21st century.
Devout Muslims flew giant missiles filled with Americans and tens of thousands of gallons of jet fuel into the military and financial epicenters of the free world (their plan to hit the Capital building hit a snag) and killed thousands in the cause of allah.
Did we declare war on jihad? No. Did we declare war at all? No. President Bush stood among the blood and ash and rubble and assured us that Islam was a religion of peace. The 911 Muslim terrorists left behind martyrdom letters invoking Allah’s name 90 times and President Bush wanted us to rest easy that Islam was a religion of peace.
When Bill Clinton had Bin Laden in his sights after a stinging number of Islamic attacks, Clinton refused to pull the trigger because Bin Laden was with a Saudi Prince.
George Bush squirreled the Bin laden family out of the country. The FBI has spent 15 years covering up the Saudi government role in 9/11.
To what end?
My colleagues and I have fought tirelessly to educate and increase public awareness of the war upon us. We have been demonized, defamed and smeared. Assassination attempts by devout Muslims are blamed on us.
The response to jihad terror is the second attack – in the information battlespace. The enemedia and political elites warn of ‘islamophobia” “fear of reprisals” and “backlash.” All of which never happen but it gives Islamic supremacists and apologists a grand opportunity to lash us with faux admonishments while proselytizing for Islam. At no time, no matter how gruesome and unimaginable the carnage does the conversation turn to Islam and the jihadic doctrine that fuels this war.
It was all about Bin laden and al Qaeda, remember? But Bin laden is gone and al Qaeda has morphed into various groups including ISIS so it wasn’t about Bin laden. What is the thread? Islam.
Ayn Rand said, ‘The hardest thing to explain is the glaringly evident which everybody had decided not to see.” Indeed, that is where we are.The number of Muslims and the number of American mosques has doubled since 9/11. 80% of the mosques are funded by the Saudis and according to Mapping Sharia, “A random survey of 100 representative mosques in the U.S. was conducted to measure the correlation between Sharia adherence and dogma calling for violence against non-believers. Of the 100 mosques surveyed, 51% had texts on site rated as severely advocating violence; 30% had texts rated as moderately advocating violence; and 19% had no violent texts at all. Mosques that presented as Sharia adherent were more likely to feature violence-positive texts on site than were their non-Sharia-adherent counterparts. In 84.5% of the mosques, the imam recommended studying violence-positive texts. The leadership at Sharia-adherent mosques was more likely to recommend that a worshiper study violence-positive texts than leadership at non-Sharia-adherent mosques. Fifty-eight percent of the mosques invited guest imams known to promote violent jihad. The leadership of mosques that featured violence-positive literature was more likely to invite guest imams who were known to promote violent jihad than was the leadership of mosques that did not feature violence-positive literature on mosque premises.”
What madness. The bloody Islamic attacks in Orlando, Garland, San Bernardino, Fort Hood, Boston, Chattanooga, Morgantown, Moore, Seattle, Skyway, Port Bolivar, Orlando, Ashtabula, Houston, Waltham, Irving, Binghamton, Glendale, Little Rock, Phoneix, Buffalo, Jonesboro, Denver, Baltimore, Scottsville, Arlington, Fredericksburg, Manassas, Wheaton, Baton Rouge, and on and on never should have happened.
Today, Islam is winning. Jihad terrorists are on college and university staff. The Islamization of the public schools, dawah curriculums continues apace. The country lives under sharia and doesn’t even know it. They fear opposing Islam because it violates the sharia and they will be demonized and ostracized by friends and relations. They could lose their jobs. That is sharia.
The Ground Zero mosque imam Feisal Rauf said, “9/11 was a watershed, was a major catalytic force in, in catalyzing the attention towards the issue of Islam, it’s presence in the West.”
This quote clearly reveals how the Islamic world sees 9/11 – as a victory, a milestone in advancing Islam. And it was. Who even gave Islam a second thought before 9/11?
We must build an army — of Davids against this Goliath-like leftist/Islamic alliance.
10:28 a.m.: The World Trade Center’s north tower collapses from the top down as if it were being peeled apart, releasing a tremendous cloud of debris and smoke.
11:18 a.m.: American Airlines reports it has lost two aircraft. American Flight 11, a Boeing 767 flying from Boston to Los Angeles, had 81 passengers and 11 crew aboard. Flight 77, a Boeing 757 en route from Washington’s Dulles International Airport to Los Angeles, had 58 passengers and six crew members aboard. Flight 11 slammed into the north tower of the World Trade Center. Flight 77 hit the Pentagon.
11:26 a.m.: United Airlines reports that United Flight 93, en route from Newark, New Jersey, to San Francisco, California, has crashed in Pennsylvania. The airline also says that it is “deeply concerned” about United Flight 175.
11:59 a.m.: United Airlines confirms that Flight 175, from Boston to Los Angeles, has crashed with 56 passengers and nine crew members aboard. It hit the World Trade Center’s south tower.
Millions of Americans have, without even realizing it, internalized the idea that it is “racist” and “bigoted” to resist jihad terror. People are used to granting Muslims special accommodations in the workplace. On campuses nationwide, Muslims are presented as victims of the American “Islamophobic” war machine. Movies studiously avoid depicting jihadis as villains.
Our public schools proselytize for Islam, teaching our children the shahada and the five pillars of Islam. American university have become unsafe for Jews because of harassment and intimidation from Muslim groups. But there are no school lessons about 9/11 – the largest terrorist attack on American soil. School children know nothing about it. They know more about the attack on Pearl Harbor, a military installation, than they do about the multiple 9/11 attacks on the homeland. It’s unfathomable. But that is how deeply the fear of insulting Islam has crippled the nation.
The cultural adherence to the blasphemy laws under the sharia (under the guise of speech) in the media, movies, music mirrors the oppression rampant in totalitarian socialites. Social media giants like Facebook, Google, Pinterest, Twitter exact stiff and swift penalties on those who dare criticize Islam. The Geller Report’s article and posts have been scrubbed from Google search. Google has changed its search results for terms such as “jihad” and “sharia” to show “only positive explanations of Islamic concepts” and conceal criticism of Islam. Google Adsense has banned my account and websites like mine. Google search is blacklisting and has admitted to working with alt-left smear groups to silence opposition. And it’s not just me, it’s all criticism of jihad and sharia. Vice President of Facebook Joel Kaplan traveled to Pakistan and met with Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan to assure Pakistan that it will remove “hateful and provocative material.”
All this while the global jihad rages. There have been 35,612 deadly Islamic attacks since 9/11. Appeasement, submission and accommodation is not working. On the contrary, it has emboldened the enemy. Terrorism works.
