9-11 ninth anniversary this weekend
This Saturday, Sept. 11, marks the ninth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on our nation.
There will be a memorial held at 9:11 a.m. at the gazebo in downtown Palmer.
All are welcome to come and hear speakers, share experiences, and thank the police, firemen, and others who work to keep our community safe on a daily basis.
The events of Sept. 11, 2001, were tragic, but even more so is the fact that we have an elephant in the room we cannot discuss.
In a nation where we supposedly possess freedom of speech, we cannot call terrorist attacks what they are.
We cannot truthfully discuss the "faith" that leads to horror and bloodshed. Islam is an elephant in the room of our nation.
Let’s examine a brief history, for "you shall know them by their fruits (Matt 7:16)."
Peace in Islam involves world domination, whether through world conversion to Islam or subjugation of all other religions.
There is a double-pronged way to achieve this, and we are seeing both tines of the fork stabbing our nation: via terror and via proper political channels.
Sept. 11, 2001 – Planes crash into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. (Muslims cheer in the streets)
Nov. 2, 2008 – We elect a Muslim President.
Sept. 24, 2009 – A 19-year-old Muslim attempts to blow up a skyscraper in Dallas. (Deported, no conviction)
Nov. 5, 2009 – Muslim psychiatrist kills 13 soldiers at Fort Hood. (He is injured, poor fellow)
Dec. 25, 2009 – The "Underwear Bomber" is unsuccessful only because his bomb malfunctions. (Where is security???)
Proposed Sept. 11, 2011 – The New Cordova Mosque (read your history from 711AD) is erected at Ground Zero to commemorate their 10th anniversary of success.
Terrorist attacks on our own soil are increasing and we are increasingly powerless to stop them.
We cannot fight what we do not recognize.
We are living a dangerous lie.
As people of faith, we choose to seek good and not evil and we assume others are like us.
Our open handed, closed eyes policies will be our downfall.
While we open our doors and our hearts to welcome all peoples, we close our eyes to the realities in front of us.
As people of faith, let us be guided by the truths in the scriptures and may we not be deceived by the twisted lies that surround us.
