Today of all days, Obama has decided to go against the very people who would never vote for him this coming November by again voicing support for the Ground Zero Mosque that is to be located somewhere on the island of Manhattan. Even Imam Rauf, who is connected the Muslim Brotherhood because he is a Muslim, has cut ties to Park51, the community center that will destroy the very fabric of Lower Manhattan’s close knit community of strip clubs and DUANEReades.
But not Obama, who was in Washington, DC, today ignoring the family and victims of Ground Zero after they requested that no politicians take part in the ceremony this year. Adeptly filling the void, 9/11 Mayor Rudy Giuliani, forever linked to 9/11 as a central figure in saving Manhattan from another 9/11 by reminding people he was mayor of New York when 9/11 happened and he wouldn’t let it happen again even if he couldn’t run for a third term like he wanted to, spoke to reporters at the ceremony after standing in front of the press pool for what seemed like minutes until they finally resigned themselves to his presence and made eye contact. He applauded the fact that elected politicians would have no voice on this day but since he hasn’t been elected to anything in a very long time felt that he should speak out and say that while we remember the victims and their families, we need also to remember that people are trying to kill us and that is really the important thing to remember on this day or remembrance.
But while anything 9/11 Mayor Guiliani says is important and should be paid full attention to, I am loathe to speak of Obama and his overt statement of support of the people who attacked us on 9/11.
I’ve always said that our fight is with al-Qaeda and its affiliates, not with Islam or any other religion.
By denying Islam is not affiliated with al-Qaeda, Obama is giving refuge to the very people that believe in the same God that the people who attacked us claimed to believe in. And those people will take this support and continue trying to build a community center very near the place we all hold sacred. And that community center will lull us into a false sense of community with those people. And that is when they will attack. So Obama in voicing vague support for Islam and many of the people who haven’t killed us YET but almost certainly will has almost certainly condemned us all.
Remember 9/11. And don’t forget who attacked us by association.
