Behind Closed Doors

September 14, 2008

Undercover and behind closed doors, after a security check to screen non-Muslims, what do British Muslims have to say on the anniversary of September 11, 2001? Some select quotes:

“Islam is superior and will never be surpassed. The flag of Islam will rise over Downing Street.”

“It may be by pure conversion that Britain will become an Islamic state. We may never need to conquer it from the outside.”

“We do not integrate into Christianity. We will ensure that one day you will integrate into the Sharia Islamic law. Our eyes are on Downing Street.”

“It would be easy for us to declare Jihad in Britain and each one of us could become a time-bomb waiting to go off.”

“The blame of 9/11 belongs to no one but the American government. They are the terrorists.”

This is a chilling report, complete with photographs and a video that Scotland Yard has requested a copy of. Read the whole article, whatever country you live in.

Despite the screams of outrage by civil libertarians and Barack Obama and his supporters in the United States, there has not been a terror attack here since 2001. Great Britain has been attacked in 2005, 2006, and 2007.

Have You Forgotten? Al Qaeda Hasn’t…

September 11, 2008

Today, Al-Jazeera aired a segment of a documentary by Al-Qaeda’s media unit Al-Sahab titled “The Harvest of Seven Years Since 9/11.” The video, which was partially subtitled in English by Al-Sahab, was aired together with a statement by the network that it had “managed to get” hold of the film and that it had not yet been posted on any Al-Qaeda website.

Memri.org provided the translation for the video and posted it on YouTube. They provide a valuable service monitoring terrorist websites and translating. Here’s what they say:

Launched in 2006, MEMRI’s Islamist Websites Monitor Project – the largest open archive of translated material from Islamist websites – monitors these websites on a daily basis. It presents and analyzes the most important material that appears on these sites with the goal of identifying crucial developments in the world of jihad, such as disagreements among jihad groups or the emergence of new ideological trends and operational strategies.

I live in a somewhat remote area of Pennsylvania. Close to Philadelphia, but far enough away from the noise and dust and dirt (and did I mention the noise?) to make me happy. I can walk a quarter mile away from my home and see Pennsylvania almost exactly as William Penn saw it more than 300 years ago. Not a house in sight, nothing but trees and mountains and the fertile soil that helps to feed the citizens of this country.

The one thing that is different from 300 years ago is the passenger jets, flying their standard route from Pittsburgh or Ontario or points to the north, passing 20,000 feet overhead with a clockwork precision of distance between them. Flying a proscribed route from northwest to southeast, slowly descending as they move toward the Philadelphia/Baltimore/Washington corridor. I like to walk into the middle of the field after the sun has just set and watch the airline lights slowly, silently appear to the northwest, one after the other, hum as they pass overhead, then disappear to the south. As the night sky gets darker they begin to separate in distance and slowly disappear and the sky becomes quiet and the birds and crickets and owls become noticeable and the deer begin to move from the forest and I know it’s time for me to surrender the night to nature.

The hijacked passengers on Flight 93 on September 11, 2001, traveling at 400 miles an hour would have passed over my house, by my estimation, in about eight minutes. If it had been at night, I would have seen the plane appear on the horizon. The plane would have moved over the urban sprawl of the Philadelphia/Baltimore/Washington area, where the population of the cities is numbered in the millions. Fifteen minutes after they first appeared they would have been over the center of Washington, DC.

The hijackers of that day were not poor, they were far, far from being uneducated, but simply rigorous adherents of a 7th century religion sorely, desperately in need of reform. Seven years after the tragedy of that day, Islam is no closer to fulfillment of that need to co-exist with other religions than it was on that dreadful day. Many countries around the world have since that day, or after their own tragedies, have had to create new legislation, infringe to some small or great extent (depending upon your political views) the liberties of its citizens to prevent further mass murdering rampages by the true believers and strict adherents of the words of Mohammed. Yet, day after day, the terror incidents continue in other countries, the battle for Islamic supremacy continues.

The vigilance must continue, candidates for office must be elected who will continue to balance the need for security against the loss of freedom, for the battle is not over. The World Trade Center was first attacked by strict Islamists on February 26, 1993. This symbol of American freedom and prosperity was not destroyed in that initial attack. They returned, eight years later, to finish what they had been unsuccessful at first accomplishing. Whether you are eight minutes away, or it is eight years later, Islam must continue to be confronted and forced to capitulate to the 21st century. The force of public opinion has unimaginable power over elected officials. Let your voice be heard.

Barack The Bomb-Thrower

September 10, 2008

Mohammed Atta was born in Egypt in 1968 in a small town in the Nile delta, but moved with his family to Cairo at age 10. He studied architecture at Cairo University, and went to Hamburg, Germany in 1992 to continue his studies. Atta enrolled in the urban planning at the Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg, where he remained a student until fall 1999. In Hamburg, Atta became involved with the Al-Quds Mosque. At some point, he met Marwan al-Shehhi, Ramzi Binalshibh, and Ziad Jarrah who all became part of the Hamburg Cell. Atta disappeared from Germany for periods of time, spending some time in Afghanistan, including several months in late 1999 and early 2000 when he met top Al-Qaeda leaders including Osama bin Laden.

Mohammed Atta was the leader of the 19 hijackers in the September 11, 2001 attacks. Atta was at the controls of American Airlines Flight 11 which was the first plane to strike the World Trade Center. (source)

But despite the military planning by foreign nationals involved in the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the failed attempt on either the U.S. Capitol building or the White House, Presidential hopeful Barack Obama* feels that if foreign national Mohammed and others of his ilk had survived they should be treated as a U.S. citizen with the full rights and free legal representation afforded American citizens in American courts along with jaywalkers, litterbugs, and ordinary wife-murdering scum such as Orenthal James Simpson.

On Monday in Michigan, Obama became exercised when talking about the need to give even suspected terrorists legal rights.

“We may think this is Mohammed the terrorist,’’ he said at a campaign rally, but “it might be Mohammed the cab driver. You might think it’s Barack the bomb-thrower. But it might be Barack the guy running for president.’’

Continuing, he got more heated, his voice booming. Referring to the Constitution, he said: “Don’t mock the Constitution! Don’t make fun of it! Don’t suggest that it’s un-American to abide by what the founding fathers set up! It’s worked pretty well for 200 years!’’

He finished with a sigh: “These people.”

No, Barack Hussein Obama, I say with a bigger sigh, “You people.” This isn’t just a small difference of opinion. This is another example of the fundamental disregard or indifference to the rights of American citizens to the protection and defense of their country by their military and a blatant attempt to turn what should be swift and fair military trials into the circus of the type of “justice” afforded to Orenthal James Simpson.

*Barack Hussein Obama was born on August 4, 1961, in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Barack Obama, Sr., a Black Kenyan of Nyang’oma Kogelo, Siaya District, Kenya, and Ann Dunham, a White American from Wichita, Kansas.
