VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Blogburst: Alan Keyes against the Flight 93 memorial


Alec Rawls sent out another blogburst, updating the protest planned for Saturday September 11, 2010. Unfortunately I got behind in reading my email and neglected it.

As previously promised, Alec included an image of  his newspaper advertisement and a link to the pdf file which you can print and mount on  poster board or in  a window.

Please do whatever you can to  stop the erection of a symbol of Islamic triumphalism at the crash site!


Blogburst logo, petitionAlan Keyes, logo-sizeConservative hero Alan Keyes is asking whether there is a pattern of submission surrounding the nation’s 9/11 sites. Apparently he has seen our video expose of Islamic and terrorist memorializing features in the crescent memorial to Flight 93 (now called a broken circle). Like any straight-thinker, he doesn’t like what he sees. The Flight 93 crash site is no place for a giant Islamic-shaped crescent, no matter what it is called. On this point, Keyes cites Colorado Representative Tom Tancredo’s 2005 objection to the newly unveiled Crescent of Embrace design:

Back in 2005, then-Rep. Tom Tancredo was reported to have sent a letter to the National Park Service “asking the Interior Department to reconsider the crescent-shaped design of the memorial to those aboard a plane hijacked on Sept. 11, 2001, because some may think it honors the terrorists.” Tancredo quite sensibly argues that “regardless of whether ‘the invocation of a Muslim Symbol’ was intentional, ‘it seems that such a symbol is unsuitable for paying appropriate tribute to the heroes of Flight 93 or the ensuing American struggle against radical Islam.'”

Keyes notes our claim that the design is still replete with terrorist memorializing features and he seems to find it credible. Why shouldn’t he? The damning features are all right there in architect Paul Murdoch’s design drawings. Thank you Doctor Keyes! “It’s not just embarrassing. It is a dangerous willful blindness, spurning the woken vigilance of Flight 93.” That’s the last line of the full-page advertisement that Tom Burnett Senior and Alec Rawls will be running in the Somerset Daily American this Friday and Saturday (when the two first ladies will be in town for the 9/11 anniversary): It_was-terrible_9-11-10_x250pxClick for legible image. Full ad-copy PDF here (large file warning). We are hoping that visitors will hold onto our ad, maybe even tape it to their car windows, and most especially, show it to any press people they come across. Hey, if the Park Service can use 9/11 to plant the world’s largest mosque on the Flight 93 crash site, we can use 9/11 to object. To join our blogburst against the crescent mosque, just send your blog’s url.

Why I Will Not Support Newt Gingrich


The ex Speaker of the House exposed his hypocrisy in  an article at Human Events.  I thank  my friend theway2k for posting a link to the Gingrich screed in
Who is at War with America?

On Terrorism it’s Time to Know, to Profile, and to Discriminate by  Newt Gingrich 12/30/2009

We know our opponents are radical extremists of the irreconcilable wing of Islam (Islamists, some would call them).

We know they have an ideology which is anti-female, desires to impose fundamentalist Sharia as a form of law, is hostile to other religions and is prepared to kill the innocent to achieve their goals.

Like G.W. Bush, John McCain, Hillary Clinton & Barack Obama, Newt knows something that is untrue. Our opponent is Islam. Islam’s canon of scripture, tradition & jurisprudence contains demonic injunctions to make war upon disbelievers.  Islamic aggression flows directly from its scripture, tradition & jurisprudence. Islam is fundamentally and irreversibly incompatible with liberty & democracy.

Islam is paternalistic & misogynistic by design. Global imposition of Shari’ah is  part of the grand design, not an innovation. Islam is not just hostile to Judaism, Christianity & Zoroastrianism, it is engaged in perpetual warfare against them.

Newt’s article included seven thematic headings which deserve some attention.

  • Our Politically Correct Government is Making Life More Miserable For the Innocent

It is true, p.c. policy imposes a great burden on innocent travelers and puts them at risk.

  • It’s Time to Be Honest About What We Know

Really, its long overdue.  But the quotes included above indicate that Newt is part of the problem, not part of the solution.

  • Protecting the Rights of Terrorists Has Been More Important than Protecting the Lives of Americans

While that statement appears strident at first glance, it is an understatement. Three thousand lives might have been saved if the investigators had properly inspected the contents of one terrorist’s computer. We need to scan, interrogate and search Muslims, not innocent citizens.  Careful background checks are needed to identify them well in advance.

  • The United States Must Actively Root Out Every Terrorist Website

I don’t believe it is possible to root them out, and I am not convinced that it is desirable. As soon as one is pulled down, they’ll replace it with another.  Those sites can serve as a source of actionable intelligence if properly exploited.

  • We Need a “Grand National Strategy” That is Bigger Than the Debate Over Afghanistan

We needed a strategy eight years ago. We needed to honestly identify the enemy first. That need has not been met yet.

  • The New Honesty Should End Any Thought of a Civilian Trial in New York for KSM

If there was any new honesty, it would come too late to derail that trial.  But there is no new honesty, and  it is unlikely that there ever will be official  honesty concerning Islam and terrorism.

  • We Need a New Homeland Security Secretary Who Knows We Need a New Strategy

That is a grand statement of the obvious. But we also need a Commander In Chief  with the same knowledge.  Newt Gingrich has identified a real need: official honesty in identifying and characterizing the enemy.  But instead of promoting it, he has continued the politically correct practice of implying that mythical ‘radical extremists’ are  the cause of terrorism.

In reality, believers of orthodox Islamic doctrine are responsible for terrorism. The Qur’an commands Jihad imperatives which require perpetual war. Those imperatives are in 8:39, 8:60, 9:29 & 9:123.  Those imperatives are confirmed by hadith including Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387. Those imperatives are codified into Islamic law in Reliance of the Traveler O9.8 & O9.9. Terrorism is sanctified in 3:151, commanded in 8:12, exemplified in 33:26 and confirmed in Sahih Bukhari 4.52.220. The new honesty Newt calls for involves acknowledging the fatal fact documented in this paragraph. It is extremely unlikely that any candidate for high office will fully engage in such honesty.

Any politician who publicly identifies Islam as the source of Islamic terrorism and genocidal Jihad will be labeled racist & bigot.  Which one of them has the SISU required to state the facts and pound home the proof?  Who can withstand the Islamic & Democrat Party propaganda mills and mainstream media?   We have two years in which to find such a hero. It appears that Newt is not the one.  Sarah Palin has already proved herself too p.c. My bet is on Tom Tancredo.
