What I Learned From 9/11

Reader comment on item: The Ninth 9/11

What I have learned from 9/11?

1. That the relationship of Islam (the majority non-terrorist Ummah) to Radical Islam is basically that of camouflage. Al Qaida uses innocent Muslims as camouflage; also as 'human shields' both in battlefield tactics and politics. This presents a terrible, vexing dilemma. But paralysis is not an option. With absolute certainty, Al Qaida/CAIR will overplay the 'innocent Muslim' card. It will backfire with the most horrible results, as like Israel, we will end up with no choice but to burn off their camouflage. So its better not to wait for the worst. The sooner we confront the dilemma, the least horror and death will result.

2. CAIR and the Radical American Left are political accessories to Al Qaida's stealth/human camouflage strategy. They work to make Al Qaida's war strategy foolproof.

3. The Radical American Left seeks to co-opt Islamic terrorism as a source of political power. They share the same stated goal as Al Qaida, to roll back U.S. global reach and power.

4. The hypocrisy of the Radical American Left is boundless. While they defend burning the American flag, Nazi parades through Jewish neighborhoods, and 'art exhibits' that befoul the Crucifix ('Pissed Christ'), they argue that burning the Koran is a hate crime. This shows us that the 'professional left' has no genuine respect for the Bill of Rights. They will exploit the Bill of Rights tactically in their own self-service, but the Left does not believe in liberty.
