A Second Day of Infamy

It’s been twelve years since the Islamic faithful inadvertently brought down the twin towers. I say inadvertently because nobody was more surprised than Osama bin Laden when jet planes crashed into the tops of New York skyscrapers and brought the buildings tumbling down. Because he had no idea how thousands of gallons of burning jet fuel would work on steel girders, he had only imagined he would send a message by murdering a few hundred office workers and airplane passengers.

For that sick puke, murdering 3,000 civilians was like buying a single ticket and winning the Powerball lottery.

As horrific as 9/11 was, we’ve had a succession of truly vile days since. To begin with, we had to listen to American Muslims whining about being racially profiled. It was particularly obnoxious when we discovered that the FBI had to step in and stop them from continuing to fund Hamas, Hezbollah and the rest of the Middle Eastern scumbags, under the pretense that they were making charitable contributions to schools and hospitals.

At the time, I wrote that if Muslims in America wanted to prove that their loyalty was to this country and not to the jihadists, all they had to do was pass the hat at their neighborhood mosques and come up with a sizable reward for Osama bin Laden, dead or alive. It never happened, and as a result every time I heard George Bush or Condoleezza Rice telling us that Islam was a religion of peace, my gag reflex was activated.

The true extent that political correctness dictated policy was on display at every airport in America when 25-year-old Muslim males were treated no differently than 75-year-old Lutheran grannies. If anything, Homeland Security agents were more likely to frisk the old lady because nobody was likely to lose his job if she complained.

Along with everything else, things only got worse once Obama was elected. He not only went on a barnstorming tour of the Middle East, pretty much adding his voice to the chorus of mullahs condemning us as the Big Satan. He went to Cairo and delivered a speech that appeased our enemies and confounded our allies. He even went so far as to state that Muslims had played a major role in the creation of our nation, only stopping short of mentioning the unforgettable contributions of Mohammed Washington, Abdullah Jefferson and Osama bin Hamilton.

It only took him another four years before he deigned to visit Israel, and even that only came after he voiced strong objections to Israel erecting apartment houses in their own country and parroting Islamic demands that they draw back to pre-1967 borders.

In the meantime, we have seen Obama’s choice for head of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, insisting that our security system worked like a charm just because incompetence prevented major terrorist acts taking place in Times Square and over the skies of Detroit.

An Army Major at Fort Hood who owed his allegiance to Allah murdered a slew of his fellow soldiers, and the White House dismissed it as workplace violence. A couple of Chechen brothers whose family should never have been granted political asylum in the first place murdered and maimed a large number of Boston marathoners, and there’s not even a move to belatedly deport the family.

We didn’t have a problem telling the truth about the Germans, the Japanese or the Russians, when they were our acknowledged enemies. Apparently, their glaring mistake was in not pretending that our differences were religiously motivated.

I guess in a country in which cultural diversity is seen as the ideal, when no nation, society or race, must ever be regarded as superior to others, but where it’s perfectly fine to label America and white Christians as inferior, it figures that nobody would be encouraged to speak the truth about Islam or to point out that most of the misery in the world today can be traced to those who believe that “Allah Akbar” is anything but an obscenity.

    Here’s a little history for you. For nearly 800+ years, Islam (under the Ottomans) rode forth to pillage and conquer. (convert the infidel). Unhappily for them, they signed on to fight WW1, with the Germans. Britain (before U.S. entry) offered ethnic Arabs and ethnic Hebrews, independent nations if they would join them (the Brits) against the Ottomans. After the Ottoman defeat the Arabs ended up with nearly 5 million square miles of territory under some 24+ separate Arab nations. The Hebrews only got (limited) opportunities to immigrate to Palestine. After the war, the map of the world changed dramatically. In fact by the end of both world wars, tens of millions of folks had been permanently displaced from their ancestral lands. Where are they all today? To name just a few, the Poles evicted the Prussians from Prussia at wars end. The Hindu’s evacuated Pakistan, (when India declared Independence ) while the Muslims evacuated India. Nearly 25 million folks in these places alone were displaced in 1946-48. So, where are they today? They found homes with their ethnic brethren from other nations. In the case of Pakistan, Muslim refugees amounted to nearly 14% of their total population. Yet for some 3/4′s of a million ethnic Arabs in British Palestine, some 24+ Arab Nations, with a population over 200 million souls, no home could be found? Today, there remain dozens of ethnic Arab Nations, comprising total territories larger than the U.S. or Canada. The Hebrews on the other hand, hold significantly less than 10,000 sq. miles. Yet here we are, still mourning our dead, from (seemingly) endless (terrorist) attacks, from those we liberated, (in fields drenched in our own blood), because the Hebrews received a tiny fraction of the reward they did?

    Whether one wants to call liberal behavior sick or evil or any combination of those two, one cannot deny that it is just wrong.
