Skip to comments.Twenty Years after the WTC Bombing

Today is the 20th anniversary of the World Trade Center bombing. It also marks three weeks since the attempted murder of Lars Hedegaard, the intrepid Danish champion of free speech. These events are not unrelated.
Back in 1993, there was a tireless effort to limn the WTC bombers as wanton killers. They were, we were to understand, bereft of any coherent belief system, unrepresentative of any mainstream construction of Islam. In reality, though, they were devout Muslim operatives who belonged to a jihadist cell formed in the New York area by Omar Abdel Rahman whose notoriety as the shadowy Blind Sheikh obscured the basis of his profound influence over Islamists across the globe.
Sheikh Abdel Rahman is an internationally renowned Islamic jurist, having earned a doctorate in the jurisprudence of sharia Islams societal framework and legal code from Egypts al-Azhar University, the center of Sunni Islamic learning for over a millennium. Blind from early youth and plagued by several other maladies, Abdel Rahman was physically incapable of building a bomb, hijacking a jetliner, carrying out an assassination in short, of performing any blood-soaked activity that would be useful to a terrorist organization . . . other than leading it.
It was nothing other than Abdel Rahmans indisputable mastery of Islamic doctrine, and hence his capacity to give present-day vitality to a seventh-century summons to holy war, that vaulted him to the forefront of the jihad.

Today is the 20th anniversary of the World Trade Center Bombing. If we were serious about the War on Terror, we would commemorate the date by publicly hanging Sheikh Rahman. But that would anger the Muslim Brotherhood and fifth columnists in America. If you want to know who our enemies and fifth columnists are, imagine who would be offended by such an action.
The Bombing occurred because the Federal government allowed MAK (predecessor to Al Qaeda) fundraisers and members of the terrorist groups Egyptian Islamic Jihad and Al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya to operated freely in America. Sure, we arrested and jailed a few terrorists, but did nothing about the spread of the parent organization of all of the above, the Muslim Brotherhood to operate in America. And after 9/11 we continued this policy. Radical Muslims have been allowed to operate in America almost unfettered. Right up till the moment they pick up a gun, we call them moderates, regardless of their own speeches and actions. Hence the Anwar Al-Awlaki not only ran a mosque in northern Virginia and was a chaplain at George Washington University, but gave speeches for the FBI.
Have we learned anything? No. Over the last 2 years, we have been helping to further the goals of Al Qaeda by helping their parent, the Muslim Brotherhood, take over North Africa.
Where is the outrage?
It has been said “Treason doth never prosper: whats the reason? Why, if it prosper, none dare call it treason.”
I call it treason. And if you love your country, you will too.
Scary seems like just yesterday
Do we now?
Why would you say such a thing???
A friend writes....and I surely agree.
Sometimes I feel like I am beating a dead horse, but this is very serious, and if we do not start making noise, we are all going to be very surprised, sooner than you think.
Why couldn't we find qualified men who were 'born in America'
to help make decisions for our country ?

Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you must threaten to report me to the Mods if I dont add you to the list...
So the media started kissing bearded savage a$$ 20 years ago.
See tag line.
I’m all for a Constitutional Amendment delisting Islam as a religion and declaring it a political system inimical to the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
I agree completely. Unfortunately, the muslim in the white house wants to be with his ‘own kind’....
Can you repost your graphic? I’m getting the red x — and am about to believe that there is a conspiracy.
< Thanks for all the pings, nully >
Yeah. Whatever. THERE IS NO INFILTRATION. ALL IS BY DESIGN.
And anyone who has never followed my take on moslems, here it is: Kill everyone of them down to the last tit-sucking babe even if it means clubbing the last like baby seals.
LET US NOT LEAVE IT FOR OUR CHILDREN!!!!!
I’ve been accused of being a nutjob many times. I guess I might as well be on your pinglist.
Do I really have to make the threat, or is my promise to do so sufficient?
I don’t like threats. They make one seem impotent. I like PROMISES better..........
HEY DON W
I don’t understand.....
Cross your heart?
Nevermind. Got it!
You raise some mighty good points...
After all the muzzy terrorists have done to America in recent years, I never understood how in a legitimate election anyone with the name Hussein could sit in the oval office. Even those who vote on name recognition would never vote for that name. How even the rats would consider running a Hussein, much less the Obama v. Osama, is proof both elections were stolen and it was a coup.
