    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Sunday marked the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks by calling on Americans to embrace the nation's character as a people drawn from every corner of the world, from every religion and from every background. He said extremist groups will never be able to defeat the United States. Obama spoke to hundreds of service members, and relatives and survivors of the attack that occurred at the Pentagon when American Airlines Flight 77 slammed into the Defense Department's headquarters, killing 184 people. The youngest victim was only 3 years old.
  • Hope and Despair: Being Muslim in America After 9/11

    Fifteen years after the 9/11 attacks, Islamophobia is on the rise in America.Anti-Muslim hate crimes are approximately five times more frequent than they were before 2001, according to the FBI. The past year has been particularly brutal, especially in the aftermath of Islamic State-claimed attacks in Europe and the San Bernardino shootings last December carried out by a Muslim husband and wife. More reports of mosque vandalism and attacks against those believed to be Muslim surfaced. Anti-Muslim rhetoric has also been given an enormous boost of pseudo-credibility and prominence by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

    breitbart ^ | Sep. 10, 2016 | DR. SUSAN BERRY
    As America looks back on the September 11 terrorist attack that changed the nation, the direction of education in the country seems on track to ensure that U.S. students either forget that day entirely or view it as a result of America’s own failure to be open and accepting of other cultures. Signs of the promotion of a “borderless” country that fosters unfettered multiculturalism could be seen decades ago in progressive school textbooks read daily by American students. “Culture war” commentator Stanley Kurtz tells Breitbart News that the situation is likely only to grow worse with the left-leaning Advanced Placement...
  • Muslim Group Wants ‘Islamic Terrorists’ Scrubbed from 9/11 Memorial

    09/05/2016 9:37:32 AM PDT · by PROCON · 48 replies ^ | Sep. 5, 2016 | Pamela Geller
    Muslims want the truth scrubbed from 9/11 in accordance with Islamic law — ‘do not offend or criticize Islam’, no matter how high the body count, no matter how gruesome the slaughter in the cause of Allah. In the last letters of all 9/11 Muslim terrorists, they invoked Allah over 90 times. Why are Muslims so keen to scrub the motive, the truth, from history? Why aren’t Muslims working to expunge and scrub the violent commands and hatred from Islam. Instead they shield, protect and impose it. Invoking the big lie, “fear of reprisals” and “islamophobia” – Muslims say...
  • Fears of an anti-Muslim backlash as major festival Eid al-Adha falls on 15th anniversary of 9/11

    Muslim leaders in the US fear people will think they are celebrating 9/11 after it emerged a major festival has the potential to fall on September 11 this year. According to the lunar calendar that Muslims follow for religious holidays, Eid al-Adha looks set to fall around the 15th anniversary of the 2001 Al Qaeda atrocity which claimed the lives of nearly 3,000 people. And as they prepare to mark the 'feast of sacrifice' there are concerns among the Muslim community that people will misinterpret the festivities as a celebration of the attacks, which saw terrorists flying hijacked jets into...

    ATLANTIC CITY, May 15, 2014 — The opening of the 9/11 museum in New York City has created an everlasting memorial for all of the victims. The story of every one of the nearly 3,000 lives lost on September 11th, 2001, is being told. Children and grandchildren of the fallen will get to know about the final hours of the people they spent far too little time with on this earth. Unfortunately, as more time goes by, it becomes clear that many of the 9/11 victims died in vain. At the risk of offending the half of the country that...

    The Taliban, which harbored al Qaeda in Afghanistan in the lead up to the 9/11 attacks on America in 2001, will have an office in Afghanistan and engage in direct talks with the democratic government there, President Barack Obama and Afghan President Hamid Karzai affirmed at a joint White House news conference Friday. “Ultimately security gains must be matched by political progress, so we’ve recommitted our nations to a reconciliation process between the Afghan government and the Taliban,” Obama said. “President Karzai updated me on the Afghan government’s road map to peace, and today we agreed that this process should...

    NEW YORK — The New York City medical examiner’s office has identified the remains of another victim of the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center. The office announced Thursday it had identified Anna A. Laverty, a 52-year-old legal secretary at Fiduciary Trust Co. who lived in Middletown. The identification came after remains recovered in the original efforts at the World Trade Center site were retested. More than 2,750 people are listed as having died at the World Trade Center in the attacks. The number of identifications is now 1,634.

    vanity | 9/10
    Here it is, the 11th anniversary of 9/11 tomorrow, and there's not a single documentary, retrospective or reminder about that day on TV this evening. I live in NYC so tomorrow we'll have the memorial service and it'll be broadcast locally. Will it be broadcast nationally? Why the silence? Because 10 years of mourning is enough, and now we're in year 11? Or does its absence from the airwaves have something to do with election?

    Rather than working to unify Americans in remembrance of that awful September morning and of the wars that must still be waged and won in order to preserve American independence and freedom, Democrat Barack Obama has made statements which suggest that he sides with terrorists. As reported by Aaron Klein at, "Obama's comments about legitimate causes" of terror groups and "root problems of causes and dangers" seems to echo little-noticed remarks the presidential candidate made eight days after 9/11 in which he said the attacks were carried out because of a lack of "empathy" for others' suffering on the...

    This is simple common sense, since the mosque developers have once again been shown to be operating under false pretenses. But common sense has, of course, been in short supply lately among New York politicians. "Lazio: Let's pull plug on mosque," by Chuck Bennett and Isabel Vincent in the New York Post, August 9: GOP gubernatorial hopeful Rick Lazio yesterday called on the Public Service Commission to zap the Ground Zero mosque because of the revelation that Con Ed owns half the site. "As governor I will appoint commissioners . . . who, like me, oppose this group's plan to...

I don't know if Rosie O'Donnell has formally joined the Deval Patrick campaign team, but given her political delusions, she could certainly be their poster child (assuming one could find a poster large enough to accommodate her). When you go to Deval Patrick's new, updated website--you know, the one that may be violating the state's privacy laws?--you'll find this webpage quoting the same moonbat memos Rosie is reading from: 9/11 was an inside...

    German court hands Moroccan max for 9/11 By SIMONE UTLER, Associated Press HAMBURG, Germany - A Moroccan man convicted of aiding three of the four suicide pilots who committed the Sept. 11 attacks was sentenced Monday to the maximum of 15 years in prison for his role in the terror plot. "Anyone who helped in this has earned stiff punishment," presiding Judge Carsten Beckmann said after announcing Monday‘s verdict. Defense lawyers said they would appeal.

The family members demanded that construction stop at ground zero until remains of all their loved ones are recovered. They also called for state and federal investigations into the failure to completely remove remains from ground zero. ... Diane Horning said that part of her son's body was located more than...

    No quarter in dealing with terrorists By KARL WEINBERG COMMUNITY VOICE On the subject of how to treat terrorists once caught in our fight against Islamofascists, the mainstream media would have us believe that we are torturing the captives by using sleep deprivation, loud rock'n' roll music, female interrogators and such. Many Americans, including me, do not believe this is torture at all. Instead, we believe that much harsher treatment should be used to get information from these terrorists. While the U.S. Supreme Court, Sens. John McCain and Lindsay Graham have said these terrorists are covered under Common Article three...

    June 27, 2006 | According to Dylan Avery, a 22-year-old filmmaker in upstate New York, no terrorists hijacked United Airlines Flight 93 on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, and no passengers heroically revolted. The plane didn't even crash in that Shanksville, Penn., field, he says, but instead landed safely in Cleveland. And not only that. As Avery sees it, the true 9/11 attackers brought down the World Trade Center in a controlled demolition, most likely to get at $160 billion in gold bars he believes were buried under the towers. As for the attack on the Pentagon, Avery insists...
