We must never forget that 9/11 was NOT a natural disaster.
[update] This morning I am sickened and saddened at our national observances of the 9/11 Islamic terror attacks and their reports in the lamestream media. Examining the public remarks of leaders like President Obama and reports by Associated Press et al, they come across as a memorial to victims of a large hurricane, powerful earthquake, or a highly infectious and deadly epidemic. But there are millions of us who do remember that 9/11 was not a Hurricane Katrina or an outbreak of ebola, it was an attack on the west by highly organized, trained, and dedicated Islamic terrorists. And moreover, it was not an one-off assault on our civilization, but one of an already ongoing series of worldwide attacks that have since continued as Islam’s jihad against the west has grown and spread worldwide.
Viewing the terror attacks as part and parcel of the organized warfare conducted by ISIS, Al Qaeda, Taliban, … in concert with the Muslim migrations and non-assimilating colonization of Europe, one would expect that in the observance of this memorial our leaders and media would dispense with what most charitably can be called political correctness. When Germany’s National Socialists launched the Holocaust and Imperial Japan attacked Pearl Harbor to secure its Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere our leaders had no problem naming our enemies and rallying the country to defend western civilization. That is not the case today, even though our enemy by all measures comes from a much larger and virile cohort of dedicated, self-sacrificing fanatics imbued with an unshakeable belief that they are doing the will of their god and will be eternally rewarded for their undeniable faith as they so willingly give their lives.
