THE QURAN - SYMBOLS WE MUST UNDERSTAND - US MILITARY - STAND FIRM

You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life. ~Winston Churchill
On the day of the worst attack on American soil 911 we are confronted by the reality that evil does exist. Three thousand innocent victims were murdered on September 11, 2001. We have been blamed for bringing 911 upon ourselves; the fact is that we are Americans therefore infidels according to the Quran because as Americans we do not bow to ‘Allah’. The Ground Zero Mosque situation seems to be at a ‘Mexican standoff’ so to speak. Only because a few, Obama, Robert Gates and even David Petraeus have paid undue attention to a small congregation in Florida. Pastor Terry has every right to burn the Quran if he so desires. What we all seem to be missing is the symbolism of the actions that have taken place concerning the ground zero mosque. The “Cordoba House” would symbolize a triumphant over the 911 Ground Zero, if built. The Islamic ‘religion’ believes that by building a mosque in this particular place, Ground Zero, the Muslims can lay claim to a victory over the infidels. They even named it Cordoba House a name synonymous to the Mosque in Cordoba Spain that was built over a Christian church. This mosque is thought to be the third largest and grandest mosque in the Islamic world.
What I find extremely disturbing is the fact that the Secretary of Defense Gates actually called a pastor to ask him not to burn the Qurans. By the way did you know that the US Military burned Christian bibles so as not to inflame the Muslims? Did you know that our troops have to hide when they attend Easter services in Iraq and Afghanistan? I did not know that and why is that? The MSM did not publicize the Bible burning incident and they protect the Islamic religion more than the Christian and Jewish religions. General Petraeus also got into the mix. His mere mention of the Quran burning implied that a pastor of an itsy bitsy congregation of 50 members was going to put our troops in harms way and ‘could harm the war effort’. Are they not in harms way now? Were we not attacked on 911 without provocation?
Obama and the Socialists/Democrats understand very much the meaning and the significance of symbols. The well meaning, but not very astute, pastor Terry Jones who overstepped his boundaries was burned in effigy in Afghanistan’s capitol Kabul along with our flag by ‘radical Islamists’ because after all they are the ‘religion of peace’. These ‘radical Islamists’ are unashamed of their deeds and prove once again who they are by their actions. Personally, I cringe when I hear that a flag burner has a ‘right’ to burn the American flag if he wants and that the Imam has a right to build the mosque where he wants. When are we going to stand firm against all these ridiculous ‘rights’? When are we going to understand that symbols do matter? The Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf has a right to build his Ground Zero Mosque if he wants because this is after all AMERICA, but is it really the ‘right’ thing to do? I say NO! The Imam does not have a right to disrespect the victims and families of those buried forever at Ground Zero. There is that ingredient we as Americans seem to forget: the element of respect, of being courteous to our fellow Americans because we can.
It seems to me that so many ‘Americans’ dismiss what happened on 911 by trivializing this national tragedy. What is the matter with these ‘Americans’? Whose side are they on? How many ‘isolated’ attacks will it take to get these warmed over easy Americans to understand that the Islamist terrorists that attacked the Twin Towers nine years ago meant to kill as many Americans as possible and in the process meant to destroy our symbol of Financial power over the entire world? How many ‘isolated’ attacks will it take for these warmed over easy Americans to realize that the Islamic terrorists still want to kill us?
I stand with you my fellow Americans and believe that we are the greatest country in the world, that we are created in the image of God and that we do our best to love our neighbors. We have shown respect and tolerance to our fellow men whether Christian or not, we have shared in our bounty to those less fortunate at home and abroad, we have fought side by side for the sake of freedom, and we have welcomed immigrants and refugees from different lands. But now we are growing weary of our own tireless acts. It is time we stand firm against those that show no respect for our great nation and our laws.
