  1. 9-11: The Desecration
    September 11, 2009
    By Pamela Geller

    Add another Obama insult to injury on 9-11. First, he desecrated the memory of 9-11 with his planned proclamation of his mandatory civilian service on 9-11, which he has designated a "National Day of Service." And now 9-11 has yet another title: State Department personnel are supposed to pray with Muslims on the newly declared "Interfaith Day of Service," whatever that means on 9-11.

    September 11, which should be a somber day of mourning and reflection (on how the hell we got here), will be a day when Obama -- in a celebratory mode -- makes his big announcement. The whole thing is depraved. And yes, it really is mandatory. The Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act - the GIVE Act - calls for a commission to study "whether a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people could be developed."

    Meanwhile, an unclassified State Department "action request" encourages State officials to "consider organizing an Interfaith Day of Service in their host countries as a way to commemorate the anniversary of the tragic events of September 11, 2001."

    It links this to Obama's statement during his Cairo speech to the Muslim world in June:

    The action request says that State Department "posts are encouraged to plan an Interfaith Day of Service to commemorate 9-11 that would send a message of goodwill, cooperation, and shared interest to their host countries and their religious communities." But some of these commemorations will not be on 9-11 itself:

    Although it refers to other "faith communities," Islam is the focus of the entire initiative. The action request asks State personnel to support mosques: "Organize a food-drive for the end of Ramadan with religious leaders and citizens in Muslim communities to donate to a local mosque or community..." And it directs State personnel to a handy "list of Ramadan 2009 outreach materials for Muslim communities."

    Not only is State indulging in more Muslim outreach garbage, but this also raises religion (Islam) and state issues. The State Department is organizing donation drives for mosques?

    For his part, Obama said at his White House Ramadan dinner: "Islam, as we know, is part of America. Together we have a responsibility to foster engagement grounded in mutual interest and mutual respect." He said that this was one of his "fundamental commitments as president both at home and abroad. That is central to the new beginning that I've sought between the United States and Muslims around the world and that is a commitment that we can renew once again during this holy season."

    Why does the State Department have such a focus on "outreach" to Muslims at all - especially on 9-11?

    Why does Obama have the same focus? Did the ummah (the worldwide Muslim community) ever apologize for 911? Did the ummah apologize for the Madrid train bombings, the London bombings, the Mumbai bombings, the Bali bombings, the many homicide bombings in Israel, the jihad in Thailand, the slow Hezbollah takeover of Lebanon, the Darfur genocide, the Beslan massacre, or for any other jihad activity?

    How striking it is that at the same time, Obama would be seeking to prosecute CIA agents for keeping this country safe after the most heinous attack on American soil in the history of the United States. He will begin criminal proceedings to jail great patriotic Americans who worked to stop the next wave of 9-11 attacks on the world's greatest nation. Obama will appoint a special prosecutor; Attorney General Eric Holder, his hatchet man, is on it.

    Obama means to erase the meaning of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks from the American psyche and convert September 11 into a day of leftist self-congratulation, the advance of government power, and Muslim pandering.

    We don't stop bending over backwards to reach out to and accommodate an ideology that is intent upon destroying us. It's insanity.
     
  2. "Indeed, faith should bring us together. And that's why we're forging service projects in America to bring together Christians, Muslims, and Jews. Around the world, we can turn dialogue into interfaith service, so bridges between peoples lead to action -- whether it is combating malaria in Africa, or promoting relief after a natural disaster."

    hell no we cant talk to each other and find common ground. after all god is on our side. our god told us that we must go out into the world and convert everyone to our religion for their own good.
     
  3. I see you are into Islamic thought.
     
  4. no i am not into islamic thought. they are more deluded than christians are.
    islam is the second largest religion in the world,soon to be the largest because of birth rates, we need to find a way to coexist.
     
  5. We need to find a way to coexist? Give me a break, jesus, how can anyone be so delusional. Guess what, all major religions already co-exist pretty well today, Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Atheism...they all get along just fine. Islam is the only religion in the world that refuses to coexist with other religions. It's Islam that needs to find a way to coexist, not other religions.

    It's Islam that is refusing to compromise on any issue, it's Islam that is spreading it's tentacles all over the world, it's Islam that demands preferential treatement and islamization of laws in Europe and North America, it's islam that punishes the conversion of Muslims to other religions by death, it's islam that bans the preaching of other religions in Islamic countries, it's islam that achieves its religious and political goals by violence, terrorism and intimidation. It's islam that needs to change and find a way to coexist. And the sooner they do that the better for them. Cause the world's patience is running thin.
     
  6. unless we are willing to spend every dime we have eliminating islam through war its not going away. in fact it is growing faster than christianity. within a few decades at present rates it will dominate the world.
    we have to find a way to coexist. george bush spent trillions and couldnt eliminate a few rag tag terrorists in Afghanistan. we cant afford to dominate them. coexist does not have to mean friends.
     


  7. Really its been 8 years since we have been attacked so Bush must have done something right.
     
  8. we wernt attacked because the attack was a one shot lucky break by a group of people who commited suicide in the attack. there was never the means to repeat an attack. very little to do with what bush did.
     
  9. I don't mind coexisting, I don't want them to be bombed into oblivion or something but the whole point is you can't find a way to coexist with people who don't want to coexist with you. It takes two to tango and I see no one willing and able to dance on the islamic side, I see no hint of compromise, tolerance, understanding. The liberal approach to this pseudo-coexisting is making one unilateral concession after another. Unfortunately the more concessions we make (and we make lots of them) the more new demands they come up with, it's self-delusional to think that at some point of time they'll stop.

    The fact that all other religions get along just fine and yet Islam does not get along with any religion it comes in contact with speaks for itself.
     
  10. the ultimate answer may be education. an educated population gives up religious fundamentalism.
