9/11: Twelve Years Later
9/11 was a moment of utter moral clarity that has been succeeded by twelve years of moral chaos. Twelve years of duplicity, flim-flam, double-dealing, humbug. Twelve years of timorousness, incompetence, impotence.
The greatest crime of all was Â keeping the soldiers on the ground in the dark about the true nature of our enemy. (Bruce Bawer)
Obama to Muslims: tell me what you want!
A series ofÂ Muslim Outreach SummitsÂ are planned coast-to-coast by the Obama administration to get feedback from Muslims on how the government can better serve them and their specific desires.
The president’s adopted home town of Chicago will be the first stop.
Can someone please explain to us what Obama is doing with the fake tears and bent head at the 9/11 ceremony today? Haven’t we seen enough? It is ISLAM and Muslims who have been the largest contributing factor to wars, death, horrors, slaughters, invasions, slavery, and looting in our history. 9/11 is only one of […] Â (The Muslim Issue)
A bracing reminder of the fact that despite all the obfuscation and denial at the highest levels, the threat we faced on 9/11 is still with us. “Iran threatens widespread retaliation against US and allies,” by Reza Kahlili for theÂ Daily Caller, September 10 (thanks to all who sent this in):
Iran is ramping up its threats to the United States even as the American effort against Iranian client state Syria has ground to a crawl….
No one will take much note of this. People expect it, even as they mouth the fashionable moral equivalence arguments. If this were a Christian group forcing a Muslim city into lockdown, it would be international front-page news; but this story, on the other hand, is just one of a great many. Yet people will still insist that Christianity and Islam are equally likely to inspire violence in their adherents.
Security forces in Zamboanga City, a large predominantly Christian port city in the Philippines, kept the community in lockdown mode on Tuesday while they pursued a Muslim rebel group accused of launching an air-and-sea strike against the region the previous day.
The mistrust is also caused by us Americans listening to the wrong voices. For far too long, we have allowed a plethora of pseudo-scholars, so-called “experts”, and ideologically driven activists to monopolize our national discourse on Islam, turning Islamophobia into a multimillion-dollar industry.
