We still live in some dangerous times. Nine years after 9/11 here’s some thoughts for liberals as you clamor for a mosque to be built 600 feet from Ground Zero in the place of a building that was struck by the landing gear of one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center:
Islam IS NOT a religion of peace, it IS NOT a religion of tolerance, it IS NOT a religion based in love, it IS in fact a religion of subjugation. Islam enslaves its worshippers with threats of torture, mutilation and death. What you fail to understand as liberals with your touchy feely outlook of the world is that most Muslims in the world hate us, not for anything we have done but for who we are: A free people free to come and go as we please, to practice the religion of OUR choice, and who respect men and women as equal. Our spiritual leaders (99.9% of them) don’t preach hate or violence against non-believers. We do however try to bring non-believers to Christ because we hope for their salvation. And while we are talking about Jesus, unlike Mohammed, Jesus did not preach hatred and violence against non believers. On the contrary, He taught us to love even our enemies.
Nine years ago next month, Muslim jihadists got on three commercial passenger planes, killed the crews, took control and flew them into the WTC and the Pentagon. They would have flown a third plane into the White House or the Capitol building were it not for brave passengers who fought back and overpowered the hijackers. The plane crashed into a field in Pennsylvania, killing everyone on board. In the following paragraphs, I attempt to paint a picture of the finals moments of the victims of the attacks and the response and actions of then President George Bush.
Picture yourself as one of the people on the floors above where the two planes hit the WTC Twin Towers. Feel the heat from the fires ignited by the jet fuel. You realize you can’t make it to safety — that you can’t be rescued before you burn to death. You stand on the ledge a hundred floors above the ground below, struggling to get a breath of fresh air. You look down the dizzying height and steel yourself. Rather than burn to death, you choose to jump, knowing that it is certain death. You pray to God that you will black out before hitting the pavement so far below.
Picture yourself as one of the passengers on one of those airliners that struck either the WTC or Pentagon that morning. The flight crew is dead or injured and terrorists have control of the plane. You noticed that you are flying so low that buildings are whizzing by like a picket fence and right before a turn, you see the Twin Towers or the Pentagon dead ahead. In the next few seconds you realize that you are going to collide with a building and be killed instantly and will never see your family again.
Now picture yourself as President of the United States when you are told by an aide of the terrorist attacks. You pray that you would never have to give the order to torture an enemy for information, but everything has changed now. You are conflicted between your morality and your oath to protect and defend the United States of America. You can’t let anymore innocent Americans be murdered in another terrorist attack. Some of the enemy combatants captured in Iraq and Afghanistan are high ranking individuals in Al Qaeda and they have made statements that another attack is coming. You need more info and the only way you will get it is through enhanced interrogation techniques such as waterboarding and sleep deprivation. The information obtained proves valuable and you are able to stop other planned attacks, thereby saving thousands of lives. Part of your calculus is that none of the enemy combatants on whom these techniques were used, died or suffered serious or lasting injury.
As Obama continues to bow to and appease our enemies in every way possible, I wonder what he would do if if he were faced with similar circumstances as Bush was. I have a feeling we will find out soon enough because Obama can do as much sucking up to our enemies as he wants, it won’t stop them from attacking us again. Their hatred of us has nothing to do with who sits in the White House. It has everything to do with their hatred of America and our God, our freedoms and our prosperity. They will continue to hate us no matter what. Their domination over us is what they want and crave and when we show weakness is when we are the most vulnerable.
So thank you Obama. So far, your only accomplishment as President of this great country is to show weakness in the face of our enemies.
