9/11: Twelve Years Later

Bruce Bawer, Frontpage Mag, September 11, 2013

9/11 was a moment of utter moral clarity that has been succeeded by twelve years of moral chaos. Twelve years of duplicity, flim-flam, double-dealing, humbug. Twelve years of timorousness, incompetence, impotence.

Thousands of lives have been sacrificed in vain; inconceivable amounts of money have gone to waste. America’s financial security and its international standing have been imperiled. And all for one simple reason: because, from the very beginning, the powers that be, in both political parties, chose to lie about the nature of the enemy we were up against.

{snip}

On September 11, 2001, only a couple of hours after the planes struck the World Trade Center, President Bush went on TV and promised the nation that we’d get the “folks” who did this. “Folks”? Would Churchill ever have called the Nazis “folks”? The tone was wrong, right from the start. Tone matters.

{snip}

Three days later, Bush was at the National Cathedral for an “interfaith service of prayer and remembrance” that had been jointly planned by the Cathedral and the White House. An account of the service at the Cathedral’s website recalls that the participants “spoke English, Hebrew, and Arabic” and “stood side by side—Jew, Muslim, Christian.” At the service, the Dean of the Cathedral offered up a prayer to “God of Abraham and Mohammed and Father of our Lord, Jesus Christ.” Muzammil H. Siddiqi of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) said a prayer. “Today,” pronounced Bush, in his comments at the service, “we feel what Franklin Roosevelt called the warm courage of national unity. This is a unity of every faith, and every background.”

And there, in that service, just a few days after 9/11, you can see it all–the seeds of everything that has been so terribly, tragically wrong about the last twelve years. I remember watching Siddiqi pray on TV that day and thinking: “OK, who is this guy?” The Investigative Project on Terrorism has since answered that question at length. Siddiqi’s group, the ISNA, is tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, and his mosque hosted a lecture by Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, the man behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. In a 2000 speech, Siddiqi said that “America has to learn that because if you remain on the side of injustice, the wrath of God will come.” In 1996, he told followers that “Allah’s rules have to be established in all lands, and all our efforts should lead to that direction.” He’s also praised jihad as “the path” to “honor” and expressed support for the death penalty for gays in Muslim countries.

And yet there he was, in that pulpit, at that service. His presence there was an obscenity; to invite his participation was an act of either utter ignorance or sheer dhimmitude. But it was only the first of many such acts. It was the template for the post-9/11 era, the new American order, during which we were told by everyone, from our president on down, that the 9/11 terrorists had hijacked not only airplanes but their religion as well, which, of course, was a religion of peace. That, we were told, was what Islam means: peace. Those of us who knew better and who dared to say so were vilified as bigots, even as the likes of Saddaqi were celebrated as noble bridge builders.

Before too long, the all-important goal of seeking out and destroying the people who had carried out the 9/11 attacks – and sending a lesson to any others who might be tempted to mount similar operations–morphed into a dubious effort to democratize the Muslim world. {snip}

{snip}

In the name of wartime security, a massive national surveillance apparatus was put in place, and airports were staffed with TSA screeners whose solemn task it was to make sure we weren’t carrying fingernail clippers or overly large tubes of toothpaste. Yet while these clowns were busy patting down wheelchair-bound octogenarians from rural Vermont and babies in diapers, Army officials were issuing commendations to a major at Fort Hood who’d made clear his jihadist sympathies and who, in 2009, ended up slaughtering 13 people in a clear-cut act of Islamic terrorism. Major Hasan explicitly affirmed that he was a jihadist–but his superiors, the media, politicians, and ultimately the judge and lawyers at his trial refused to treat him as one, insisting instead on characterizing his massacre as workplace violence. {snip}

{snip} Meanwhile, the level of disinformation about Islam intensified. Bush, while seeking to strengthen America’s ties to its allies, had massaged the Muslim world with insipid rhetoric about our shared heritage as “people of faith”; Obama, while kicking our allies in the teeth, spun outrageous fantasies about Islam, transforming, in his famous 2009 Cairo speech, fourteen centuries of primitive brutality into a glittering parade of moral, cultural, intellectual, and spiritual triumphs.

As the years after 9/11 went by, other major acts of jihadist terrorism occurred around the world. Each time, the mantra from on high was the same: these crimes had nothing to do with Islam. Government officials, military leaders, authors, filmmakers, journalists, teachers, professors–all played their part in obscuring the truth about Islam. When the “Arab Spring” came along, only the systematically enforced ignorance about Islam made it possible for so many Americans to respond enthusiastically to the overthrow by religious fanatics of relatively secular, America-friendly regimes.

Most disgraceful of all is the fact that even American servicemen and women were lied to. Many of those who were sent to Afghanistan and Iraq thought they were going there to protect good Muslims, who embodied the innate peacefulness of Islam, from bad Muslims, who had betrayed the faith of their fathers by claiming to kill in Allah’s name. These soldiers thought they were going to bring freedom, equality, and secular government to people who truly wanted those things and who would be grateful for them. These soldiers went into harm’s way unaware of the vast gulf between their own Western mental world and the Islamic mental world of the individuals, both “friends” and “enemies,” with whom they’d be dealing. That was the greatest crime of all: keeping the soldiers on the ground in the dark about the true nature of the enemy.

{snip}

9/11 was a day of heroes and of villains, of stark contrasts between good and evil. Yet how quickly the politicians, journalists, and others in positions of power managed to make a muddle of it all. Instead of witnessing a democratization of the Middle East, we experienced a steady Islamization of the West. Instead of seeing freedom bloom in the Islamic world, we saw a rise in Western censorship and self-censorship on the subject of Islam. Some high-profile figures in the West have been put on trial for speaking the truth about Islam, while others have made sophisticated arguments for limiting freedom of expression and for introducing sharia law into Western courts.

{snip}

It’s one thing to say “never forget.” But unless you have some sense of the strong, deep ideological roots of what happened on 9/11, remembering the horrific images themselves doesn’t, practically speaking, really amount to much. Rarely, if ever, has the truth of Santayana’s sober warning about knowing the past or being condemned to repeat it been so starkly manifest.

    No, our rulers and too many here in America haven’t learned their lesson and that lesson is simple. Islam doe NOT belong in America. We should never have let the 911 attackers into the country in the first place. We should have never let the Boston bombers in the country in the first place. We should never have allowed muslim immigration. We should have secured our borders long ago. Any Muslim flying into our country should be severely scrutinized and profiled. I remember the silly comments that they attacked “because they were jealous of our freedoms”. What a joke. They attacked us because to them, we are the hated infidel, and they want Islam to take over the world.

    • Northerner

      9/11 is not about race or culture. It is about the widespread deception
      and betrayal of the American people by those who claim to serve our best
      interests.

      Have no fear. All of the old religions will be gone in the new order. It will be a utopia of reason triumphant over ignorance. … or so it was pitched in the French revolution and the Bolshevik. In the new religion man is God.

      • gemjunior

        Yup. That’s why we’re in the shape we’re in.

      • me

        A creed of idiots. At least France is waking up and smelling the ‘diversity’.

    • gemjunior

      “But it’d be racist and prejudiced to profile someone in full Islamic getup whose wife is clothed entirely in black with only her eyes showing. Just because somebody is from an Arab background doesn’t make them guilty. It would be wrong to racially profile Arabs in this way. People like Daisy Khan and her rich husband wanted to build a mosque at Ground Zero as a tribute, and to prove that Islam is really a Religion of Peace.” That’s a liberal’s mental illness showing.
      A normal person would suggest that we keep a tight rein on every one of them that isn’t here for at least 3-5 generations and any that show fundamentalist tendencies should be subjected to frequent surveillance-related harassment by law enforcement. Any that call lawyers and c/o harassment should just be told that this is how it is after 9/11 since we have to protect ourselves from them. And if they don’t like it tough. They’re lucky that we aren’t beheading those heathens like they’re beheading “infidel” Christians and other non-Muslims in their savage countries.
      The only way for white people to ever put things right in their societies is for them to learn beyond a shadow of doubt that they simply must speak the truth out loud. They must say that we have the right to get rid of anything that we feel doesn’t fit in with the western ideals we love that have made the best societies in the world, ours, so desirable. We have to be comfortable with being criticized by idiots and learn to say Sorry but your opinion is not important. This is our nation, so do it our way or get out. End of discussion. Are we our own worst enemy or who is it? Who is our worst enemy? Who?

      • me

        We have a lot of enemies, but we’re importing them by the bushel.

  • [Guest]

    I recall hearing a whole lot of superficially patriotic yammering immediately following the Muhammadan atrocities of 11 September 2001. But I also remember that within days we were introduced to the terms “Religion of Peace” and “Islamophobia.” It was obvious at once that by killing all those people and shaming us, the Muhammadans had won a huge public-relations coup. If nothing else, that day made it obvious that this country was on its own suicide mission.

    • Spartacus

      If I were president of the US when 9/11 happened, I would’ve nuked Mecca and Medina. After all, muslims believe in “Eye for an eye “.

    • me

      With a lot of help.

      • [Guest]

        True. But why would the majority of voters put a former or part-time Muslim into the White House as soon after 9-11 as possible?

        The nation is suicidal. I believe we’re on our deathbed, with the lethal dose already in our system.

    It happened before, and it’s gonna happen again -American White men (and women, more recently), fighting in wars that have nothing to do with them, on the wrong side, and at the orders of people who wish to exterminate their kind. I just hope more of them wake up, before they end up killed with flashlights by the “people” they were so eager to defend…

      British men came home from WWI to find feminism in full swing and themselves second class citizens in their own homes. That wasn’t what they fought for. Obviously American who fought in Vietnam did not appreciate how they were treated after returning home from a war many did not want to fight to begin with. But the worst situation HAS to be the modern American soldier, who has now realized his government wants him to fight ALONGSIDE AL QAEDA! What more monstrous betrayal than to make soldiers fight on behalf of their enemies and against quite frankly regular people who have refused to become 7th century barbarians.

        Oh, good grief. British men coming home for WW1 were not 2nd class citizens in their own homes. Women at that time were the ones who were 2nd class citizens, which is why there was feminism and rightfully so. Men coming home from Vietnam were treated horribly and that was very wrong and so are our soldiers today being treated badly. America needs to stay out of all of these useless wars in the Middle East.

  • MikeofAges

    There is a hidden reason why the authorities do not want to characterize Maj. Nidal Hasan’s attack as terrorism, rather than workplace violence.

    Radicals who want to foment terrorism and street violence always have sought to instigate or activate “lone wolf” operators with whom they have no literal connection. This was the modus operandi of white racist leaders in the South in earliers. Today, it has become the modus operandi of black radicals who hope to instigate unstable individuals who will then act on their own.

    To some extent, we recognize the violent white racists of the South as terrorists. But they are part of history, not part of the present. What the establishment does not want to have happen is for anti-white street violence to be seen as terrorism. But it very often is. Sometime the motive is purely criminal. Very often, however, it is frankly political. the fact that the perpetrators often are young and none too bright does not change that.

            Nevertheless, what about the rest of the argument? That “lone wolf” operators influenced by instigation are terrorists? Including the perpetrators of anti-white street violence today?

        • Sick of it

          And yet read about Radical Reconstruction. If anything, I’d say the Klan was a means of DEFUSING the building hatred in the South for their terrible mistreatment. Not long into Grant’s administration, they wanted to start another Civil War I’m sure.

          • MikeofAges

            Something not well understood by Northerners. After the Civil War, the South must have needed to build a new economic basis and develop a new basis for constructive social relations. Brutal reconstruction did not help the region along, no doubt. Eventually, even the doctrine of “separate but equal”, which required the Southern states to create nominally equivalent educational systems through the college level, had to be forced on the South from outside.

          • Sick of it

            You know what’s really sad? I just read the numbers from some historical research done in the 20s and earlier. The South was actually paying most of this nation’s tax dollars before the Civil War and the other sections were raking in most of the government money. Reconstruction was a means of impoverishing a formerly wealthy, successful, and well educated South (We had the highest literacy rates of all sections back then). It also sucks because that means that we funded the creation of the infrastructure and factories used to kill our people.

          • Jesse James

            Read this bit again Sick, do you see the parallels between what is going on today? First they came for us backwoods Southerners because the whites of the north have long been taught to hate us. Then it was the turn for all neighborhoods, cities and peaceful white communities to be Deconstructed. Your children bused to schools where they are reviled and hated by non-white teachers, administrators and savage students alike. Your middle class white status destroyed as your earnings potential plummets due to the influx of cheap non-white immigrant labor. Your children brain washed by Disney, the movies, the media and the school into not even believing in their racial identification at the same time that their race is deliberately being destroyed. When we flee the racial hatred and violence and reform civil society in the suburbs they use the full force of government to break down our islands of civilized whiteness. Anything done to a gun toting, Constitution loving, pro-white, pro-family Tea Party type is ok by the vast majority of whites because they are being taught by Homeland Security that we are terrorist and we threaten the peaceful existence of the state. They will stand on the corners and clap as the forces of the Homeland Security State sweep through neighborhood after neighborhood seizing our guns and imprisoning the last of our free men to destroy our last hopes of freedom from our “Progressive” oppressors.

          • Sick of it

            I will actually say that a lot of black female teachers are decent to their white students (I’ve only ever seen a black male teacher at college). The only non-white teacher I had before college who was bad to me was a Jewish woman who oppressed me without reason, being as I was an innocent and rather quiet ten year old. I didn’t even realize she was Jewish until years later, but that’s part of the programming.

            The black students are terrible to white children today and my sister had to pull her kids out of public school in order to protect them, following violent incidents at their (elementary) school.

            Yeah, everything you’ve said about the Progressive movement is true and their followers have advocated nothing but visceral hatred toward and oppression of white people. Many seem fond of the notion of white genocide and I have called them on it. We never should have let madmen come to power in America.

          • Jesse James

            Here is a quote taken from a letter written by the former General Robert E. Lee to the former Confederate Governor of Texas, Fletcher Stockdale in 1870: “Governor, if I had forseen the use those people designed to make of their victory, there would have been no surrender at Appomattox Courthouse; no sir, not by me. Had I forseen those results of subjugation, I would have preferred to die at Appomattox with my brave men, my sword in my right hand.”

          • Bon, From the Land of Babble

            Ditto for Gen. Patton the “Fightingest General”, who, after the defeat of the Germans, realized he had been lied to after he discovered WHO the real enemy was:

            Good thing his writings were preserved:

            Berlin gave me the blues. We have destroyed what could have been a good race, and we are about to replace them with Mongolian savages. And all Europe will be communist. It’s said that for the first week after they took it (Berlin), all women who ran were shot and those who did not were raped.

            Actually, the Germans are the only decent people left in Europe. it’s a choice between them and the Russians. I prefer the Germans.

            And yes, I know he was killed for speaking out against the NWO — the one he’d fought to preserve, maintain and expand — and 200,000+ young, mostly White Americans died for:

            Lee had the option to start a guerrilla war, but chose surrender instead. Others had advocated such a war and honestly, it should have been obvious that the Radical Republicans were just as radical as their name implied. Their ideas ran contrary to all things American.

          • ncpride

            The Klan was formed out of necessity because of the cruelty of Northerners. They came down South, stripped White land owners of the right to vote, and put illiterate negroes in charge, told them they were ‘equal’ and stirred up nonsense, all because of their hatred of Southerners… their own racial kin. Negroes started running amok, (as we knew from experience they would) so our Southern men did what they had to do to take back control of their fate. What group of people wouldn’t do exactly the same? People like to believe the Klan was formed because the White Southern male hated blacks, but the fact is, it was formed because of the White Northern male’s hatred for his own racial kin.

          • Sick of it

            White southerners had never hated blacks until the oppressions under Radical Reconstruction, with the attendant loss of rights, being barred from political office, the Federal government putting blacks in political office, the black on white violence, etc. That hatred died down rather quickly, despite what liberals are taught.

    • gemjunior

      “To some extent, we recognize the violent white racists of the South as terrorists.”
      On the whole, in general, that is not true. Sure their have been some but not nearly as many as there were good whites. The blacks will always say that whites had more money, nicer homes, better teachers and schools, 2-parent families. Of course, blacks and libs will never say that whites planned and worked hard for their money, cleaned, furnished and painted their homes to make them nicer, and the white government paid the teachers and built the schools instead of a dictator stealing the money. The parents married and stayed together raising families. The white farmers made money. All these people fed the blacks, engaged them and gave them work that they could do, and paid them. I know that the pay was not CEO pay like they think they deserve and think that when they overthrew the white government that the money would somehow still appear with the new suit and business card. They aren’t like us and they don’t understand a lot of concepts that we’ve always been told they did. It doesn’t come easy to us to be “racist’ because we always believed that we were wrong. The Whites in SA knew for hundreds of years that there were certain ways to interact with the different tribes and with Africans in general. Only in the last couple of decades were they propagandized into giving away their birthright because they felt that being universally criticized indicated that what they were doing HAD to be some mistake or wrong in some way. They’re paying for that mistake with their lives, and their mistakes are a warning to us. Once black Americans were given “equal’ status the trouble intensified for whites. Now they built America and were part of it’s history in the most noble ways possible. Seemingly the majority of the men fought for the right to fight in America’s wars – they were desperate to fight for a country they never felt part of? I dunno what’s worse, the anti-white propaganda or the pro-black propaganda. It’s really hard to accept, and it’s tragic to us, but there is more and more proof they need seriously harsh discipline.

  • Northerner

    9/11 was a false flag attack facilitated by criminal elements in the U.S. government designed to scare Americans into supporting a global war on “terror”, which in fact turned out to be one of the largest resource grabs in human history. Our troops aren’t dying for freedom and democracy; they’re dying for oil and the geopolitical interests of a powerful few.

    While FrontPage can deliver well researched articles (I have submitted some of their articles for possible posting), they are part of the problem. While they rightly document other people’s advocacy, they are just as likely to use the same methods they criticize others for (pleading persecuted minority status deserving of special treatment).

    The government’s version of 9/11 was and is a 5 star lie and it doesn’t stand up to critical analysis for if it did there would be no need to attack and slander anyone who didn’t agree or found fault with it. As it is, you’re called a kook or a nut or conspiracy theorist if you point out any of the dozens of holes in the official theory.

  • Allan477

    What our government refuses to recognize is that we were attacked by Islam; we are at war with a religion. We are not at war with small groups of fanatics but the whole damned Muslim religion. We may not be comfortable with that fact, but that is the fact. Assad is no better or worse than the rebels in Syria. If we don’t want an all-out war in Syria, we had better keep out of there.

    • IstvanIN

      If that were true the Muslim population of the United States would not have doubled since 9/11.

    • Jesse James

      What you are failing to see Allan is that the global government doesn’t give two damns about protecting us from Islamist. Islam is just the boogeyman being used to frighten us into silence and cheer for the creation of the Homeland Security state apparatus that is being designed not to fight fight foreign terrorist but to subjugate us to the global government here at home as they destroy the last vestiges of the old free American nation state and replace it with the new UN compliant administrative region. What is going on is a form of political power jiujitsu where all the institutions that protected our freedom for so much of our history: the schools, the military, our local police forces, our Congress, our judicial system are being captured by a globalist elite and used against us. The goat herders from the Middle East have only ever been in any way ever to threaten us or attack us at home because the government is moving large uncontrollable millions of them into our homelands. It is the old game of divide and conquer.

    A false flag operation is designed to turn the public away from the real perpetrators and to focus on the wrong enemy. The false flag is the method used by the small group seeking dominion against its much larger enemies. Who benefits from Christians and Muslims destroying each other? Who benefits from importing Muslims and Africans into all the white countries of the world? Rekindling a conflict that has lain dormant for over 500 years would have seemed preposterous in 1960 but so would bringing Somalis to Maine, and Muslims to Norway.

      Trillions were spent on the middle east wars since 9/11. Corporations
      that sell military equipment benefited. The Jewish owned Federal Reserve
      greatly increased US debt, and interest payments. Israel got Americans to
      fight their enemies. The group most screwed over, besides US ground troops, were Arab Muslims. The group that benefited most was
      the Jewish syndicate. Also realize the Jewish syndicate mostly owns and
      controls the US government.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Churchill tried in vain to manoeuvre the cabinet into restricting West Indian immigration. ‘Keep England White’ was a good slogan, he told the cabinet in January 1955. Ian Gilmour records Churchill saying to him, in 1955, about immigration: ‘I think it is the most important subject facing this country, but I cannot get any of my ministers to take any notice.’

  • Jesse James

    We didn’t because this whole last ten years was never about protecting Western society from Islam. It is about destroying free western nations to pave the way for the New World Order. When all of the things being done by your government doesn’t seem to match your perceived objectives it is only because you are in the dark about the nature of the real objective. The government isn’t irrational, it is just deceptive. Yet just like astronomers use observation to deduce the existence of large distant and invisible objects you can apply your own reason from observation to deduce what the real objects of the globalist progressive government must be.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      This is an excellent comment. I’d only add that this is not only about destroying free western nations, but about eradicating — or blending out of existence — the entire White Race.

      When this is done to any other race, such as in Dafur or Tibet, the UN calls it genocide and brings world wide attention to the atrocity.

      When genocide happens to Whites, it is approved by the western media and governments and egged on by anti-racists like Tim Wise.

      Look no further than South Africa as to what OUR fate will be when WE are lorded over by murderous non-Whites in the U.S., England, Australia and other White homelands.

  • JohnEngelman

    I have read the Koran from cover to cover in three English translations. I have read the Bible, including the Apocrypha from cover to cover in seven English translations.

    On every few pages of the Koran Mohammed claims that those who doubt his claim of being God’s greatest prophet will go to hell. Similar passages in the New Testament are few, ambiguous, and lend themselves to other interpretations.

    Although the Koran alludes to passages in the Bible, they are the kind of anecdotes that would be known to an adult who remembers Bible stories from Sunday School, but who has never read the Bible. He seems to have no knowledge of the writing prophets, like Amos and Isaiah. He also knows nothing of St. Paul. The theology of the Old Testament prophets and St. Paul cannot be explained to a child.

    • watling

      Wasn’t Mohammed illiterate? He would have dictated the Koran to a scribe, who could quite easily have written what he liked.

      • JohnEngelman

        The story I got was that Mohammed was illiterate. He went into trances, and believed – or claimed – that passages were dictated to him by the angel Gabriel. I am fairly confident that what he dictated was written down.

        Islam is similar to Mormonism in that it bases its entire authority on the word of honor of one man.

    I too once believed “murdering Muslims” were solely responsible for 9/11 then I started to scratch the surface.

    • kjh64

      Murdering Muslims were responsible for this but the US government had been warned in advance that a major attack was coming yet did nothing. The US government even allowed for these terrorists to enter the country legally even though one had a very questionable background. The recent Boston bombers were allowed in legally and Russia warned the US TWICE about them yet the US still allowed them to stay and collect large amounts of welfare. One of the Boston bombers had a voter card allowing him to vote even though he was not a citizen. So much for those that claim we don’t need voter ID.

    We need leaders, not rulers. Empires and kingdoms and democracies have rulers. Republics have leaders. For those of you that don’t know your history, this country was founded as a “Republic” and the founding fathers never intended it to be a “democracy”.

      We were founded as a republic with limited suffrage. Universal suffrage ruined the US. Democracy is mob rule, as we have seen.

      Kingdoms actually aren’t such a bad deal as long as there is a parliament to counter balance the monarch. The problem with modern monarchies with a couple of exceptions is the monarch has no power.

  • MBlanc46

    The British, French, and Germans have imported millions of Muslim workers from the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia. The United States is in the process of importing millions of them. You can’t very well expect them to declare war on Islam when they’re using Muslim countries as recruiting grounds for cheap labor (and, of course, a major source of petroleum).

    • prunepit

      Importation of non-whites into the white countries of the world is not about cheap labor or oil but rather a concerted scheme to disempower white people. After emancipation blacks were not returned to Africa as promised by Lincoln because they were seen to be a useful tool against the white majority.
      The NAACP was founded 100 years ago and was led by Jewish presidents until the mid 1970s! It was the NAACP that ruined the 5 million member UNIA – an organization that advocated “Africa for Africans”. The NAACP was also instrumental in discrediting Booker T. Washington who advocated black self-reliance.
      Blacks have not benefited from drinking from the same fountains, sitting in the front of the bus, or going to white schools. The fight for civil rights has not benefited blacks, by all measures they are worse off today than before the civil rights era.
      The scheme has become more obvious as countries that never engaged in slavery are made to atone for someone else’s mistreatment of Africans by importing non-whites who are unemployed, unemployable, and are destined for permanent welfare.
      Muslims in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Finland, Lithuania, and Poland is a punishment for being white.

  • Alexandra1973

    9/11 was a false flag attack.

    Still, it doesn’t mean Islam isn’t a load of hooey.

    Let me give an analogy: Say you have a neighborhood bully who likes beating up everyone. That one kid that got beat up, you can’t assume it was said bully just because of the bully’s reputation.

    And the fake bin Ladens that came up…who did they think they’re kidding? That guy has been dead since December 2001. In fact he died a few days before my son was born.

  • prunepit

    9/11 was a false flag operation designed to create a “credible” Islamic enemy from the 500 year-old ghost of Islam past. European, internecine wars worked for awhile. The communist enemy worked for awhile. The war against Islam is just the latest case of “Let’s you and him fight.”

  • shmo123

    I’m no fan of the Russians but I have to agree. If the Germans hadn’t acted like such savage barbarians towards the conquered people in the East, things might have turned out differently. Maybe. But Russians aren’t exactly noted for being benevolent conquerors either. As it was, the Germans reaped the whirlwind.

    • Spartacus

      The reason Soviet casualties were so high wasn’t because of German “savagery” but because the imbeciles that ran the Soviet army just ordered their own soldiers to march blindly towards the enemy, without any kind of planning . Also, I’m willing to bet that many of the people that were supposedly killed by Germans were in fact killed at the order of Stalin, then blamed on NS Germany, just like the Katyn massacre, for example .

      • shmo123

        I’ll give you that the Russian army was ill equipped and their tactics, particularly at the beginning of the war resulted in utter calamity. Stalin’s paranoid purges of his officers and his refusal to heed British warnings about Nazi troop movements prior to June, 1941 were a disaster. I also believe the stories of Russian troops ordered into battle without guns (just use your dead comrades!!) were true. However this does not take away from the savagery of German occupation. They were trained from the beginning to have nothing but contempt for the “untermenschen” and to show no pity or kindness. Stalingrad, Babi Yar, the destruction of thousands of villages all bear witness to that. The Russians taken prisoner are another example. Out of the millions captured, very few returned. What happened to them? Most starved to death while in captivity. They weren’t fed because of a deliberate plan on the part of the Nazis to not be burdened with them. That’s nothing if not barbaric. Many were made guinea pigs and used in the testing of Zyklon B gas. The entire country of Poland could be another example. They lost 20% of their pre-war population, or approximately 6 million out of 33 million- an incredible loss of life. At most, 10% of those deaths were the result of combat or bombing of cities. The remaining 5,400,000 were murdered in so many ways: torture, starvation, gas, deportations, firing squad, etc. in an orgy of savagery and bloodletting that lasted nearly 6 years. I could go on and on, but the historical record is clear.

        You can’t sugar coat the Nazi war machine and what they did, even separating the Wehrmacht from the devils in the SS. The Germans were active and willing participants in the murder of millions of innocent men, women and children. I bear no ill will against the Germans of today, but their grandparents have to live with an awful legacy.

          On the Eastern Front, the Wehrmacht was complicit in SS crimes.

          “Out of the millions captured, very few returned. What happened to them? Most starved to death while in captivity.”

          —————————————————————————————-

          Actually, more than a million of them fought FOR the Third Reich, and against communism . Would they have done so if they didn’t hate communism ? Would they had opened fire on their own countrymen if they didn’t truly believe that their country was occupied by much worse a foe than Hitler could ever be ?

          • shmo123

            I don’t believe your figure of a million Russians fighting on the German side at all. You’ll have to provide sources to support that. Most foreigners “recruited” or who volunteered did so under the auspices of the Waffen SS, but most were relatively few in number–nothing close to a million.

            There were many people in the former Soviet Union who welcomed the German troops with vodka and flowers when they chased the Soviets out–Ukrainians, White Russians, etc. Plenty of videos exist that prove it. Had Hitler and his henchmen been more open to winning hearts and minds instead of killing them, the whole course of his war would have been radically different. But Hitler’s war was one of conquest, subjugation and murder–without the slightest consideration to the long term consequences of that policy. But the people who initially welcomed the German troops had no idea they were trading one devil for another. I don’t know how Hitler could’ve been “worse a foe” than Stalin, but he certainly proved to be his equal in that department.

        • gemjunior

          The regular German people were most certainly NOT active and willing participants in the murder of millions of innocent men, women and children. Have you ever heard the truth about what happened to innocent German women and children after the war? They didn’t do anything unless they did it to avoid getting put into a camp themselves, like send their son to the Hitler Youth. Many didn’t even realize a lot of the crazy stuff that was being done by the German officials.
          I’m glad you don’t have ill will against today’s Germans and most of the people who did those terrible things are dead. However, today’s young Germans cannot walk from one street to the next without seeing Holocaust statues, plaques, signs etc., constant reminders in THEIR own country of their inherent evil (such as being related to those people who did these things, who were the same race as them, and who were the result of a certain type of “genetic stain”) and therefore they will never be anything other than those people of the Nazis – those people who did unspeakable things to others. The Nazis had methods that were new and loathesome.

          • shmo123

            Who wore the uniforms when the Germans attacked and subjugated continental Europe from the Atlantic to the Urals? Who wore the uniforms of the Luftwaffe when they were bombing Warsaw, Stalingrad, London, Rotterdam, to name a few? Who drove the tanks? Shelled cities with artillery? Were some of those people “good” in the sense that they would never have taken part in actions that intentionally harmed other innocent people? Undoubtedly they were. But they were caught up in a tidal wave that they helped unleash, either by voting for the national socialists or thinking (as many cultured, educated Germans did in the 30’s) that the Nazi rabble could never take power. How could the nation of Goethe, Schiller and Beethoven ever be taken over by such uncouth thugs? But they were, because they were dealing with evil; evil that had no scruples, moral or otherwise.

            I realize that there were terrible things done to the German civilian population after the war. It’s all been recorded and documented. But we can’t fault our grandparent’s generation for lacking empathy. When you’re standing amidst a mountain of rubble that used to be a city, liberating a camp filled with emaciated corpses, or burying your comrades after a battle, it’s hard to feel empathy for the people that caused it. I also don’t believe it does any good to bombard subsequent generations with the guilt of their ancestors. Look what good that has done so far. But the majority of Germans followed Hitler right into the mouth of hell, and they did so willingly–right to the bitter end. If you take the sense of order and discipline so dominant in the German character, and combine it with evil in the guise of a Hitler, the historical forces combined to make for unspeakable tragedy.

            Shakespeare once wrote: “The bad men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones.” The good Germans who lived during that time are buried underneath the avalanche of bad above them. It’s not fair perhaps, but that’s the way history is written.

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            It was Wermacht soldiers who nearly executed my grandfather, whose country THEY invaded. Only my grandmother’s intervention prevented them from shooting him, after they already beat him to an inch of his life. You can guess what she did to save her husband and my grandfather. He suffered until his death from what they did to him. So no, had I been in Ukraine during WW-II, I would have been utterly merciless to all German soldiers who crossed paths with me. Sure, I would have probably died, but I would have taken plenty of enemies to my maker with me. One thing they did to avenge themselves upon the Germans was to skin them alive and hang the corpses like butchered meat. The German’s cruelty backfired and it was the German civilian population who paid the price. That did not justify what the Soviets did to German women and girls, an really revolting deed that should horrify all of us. In short, because of what the Germans and Slavs did to each other at the instigation of hostile racial and religious aliens, whites must NEVER AGAIN turn weapons on each other in this way.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      Russians finished far more wars than they started, they have been attacked from all sides by Asians, Muslims, and Europeans from without, and Jews from within. After what the Germans did, can you blame them for being vengeful? My own family suffered personally in a most terrible way at their hands. It is true they have been heavy handed, but no less heavy handed towards conquered people than many other Europeans were. The huge casualties of the war were due not just to German cruelty and ruthlessness on the battle field and towards civilians, but the Jewish dominated Bolsheviks’ total disregard for the welfare of the Russian people. To them, they were cannon fodder to be sacrificed. Before anyone naysays me, remember the President Vladimir Putin himself stated the Soviet Government was controlled by Jews from 1917 until well after WW-II.

    Churchill on Islam:

    “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its

    votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in

    a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic

    apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident

    habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of

    commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the

    followers of the Prophet rule or live.

    A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and

    refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that

    in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his

    absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine,

    must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of

    Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

    Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the

    influence of the religion paralyses the social development of

    those who follow it.

    No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from

    being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing

    faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa,

    raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that

    Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the

    science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization

    of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient

    Rome.”

    Sir Winston Churchill; (Source: The River War, first edition,

    Vol. II, pages 248-50 London)

    Churchill saw it coming.

    I am somewhat surprised by the comments. It
    seems that most of AmRen’s readers tacitly accept the official conspiracy
    theory of those heinous attacks. Namely that 18 or 19 highjackers organized by
    a man in a cave in Afghanistan managed to outwit the most sophisticated
    security defense system in the world, fly two airliners into two skyscrapers
    (and possibly a third into the Pentagon) and managed to bring down THREE
    buildings in free fall time (look up WTC 7). All because they hate America’s
    freedom and want Islam to conquer America. And before the dust had
    settled war was declared upon “terror”. Has anyone asked cui bono? Has
    anyone listened to Ehud Barak on the BBC that fateful day? Has anyone looked at
    who controlled Homeland Security? Who was the Comptroller of the Pentagon? Who
    controls mass media & Hollywood? What about the Think Tanks and the Federal
    Reserve?

    The answer is simple: THOSE WHO WISH TO
    TRANSFER THE STATUS OF RULING STATE FROM THE US TO ISRAEL.

    A (false) narrative was created and is
    being perpetuated by repeat “false flag attacks” which has led to repeated
    military interventions against the enemies of Israel. This is designed, apart
    from the obvious, to break American military might in the long run, destroy her
    economy, whip up anti-americanism around the globe, have a greater pool of
    “useful idiots” (usually Muslims) to employ in future false flag attacks and
    create millions of refugees and asylum seekers.

    Now they are trying to get NATO to DIRECTLY
    intervene in Syria after this chemical weapons false flag. Will they succeed? I
    pray not for if they do it is World War III.

    Pax Americana is being replaced by Pax
    Judaica and the REAL rulers want it just like that.
