Christians around the world are plagued with mixed emotions on this subject, others said do it, while others disagreed. Jones has called off the book-burning after receiving a call from defense Secretary Robert Gates. I do hope he sticks to his word.
The horror that unfolded the morning of Sept. 11, 2001 will never be forgotten. 19 al-Qaeda terrorists boarded and hijacked 4 commercial airline flights, headed for long distances, carrying a large amount of fuel. As we all know, 2 planes were diverted directly into the Twin Towers. One plane plunged into the Pentagon. The third plane did not complete its mission as passengers and crew members bravely overtook the hijackers and crashed the plane into an open field in Shanksville, Pa. The speculated direction of that plane was either the White house or the US Capitol building.
All 246 passengers and crew died as did the 19 hijackers; the Twin Tower attacks killed 2,606 innocent people; the Pentagon attack claimed the lives of 125 people who were inside the Pentagon. A total of 2,966 people died, and thousands others were seriously injured, two more deaths were added to the list as a result of the attacks.
For days, months and years after the devastating attacks Americans and the world united in an unspoken bond. For the first time in years Congress came together in a totally bi-partisan unity. America and countries from around the world openly shared their grief. There were people from 70 countries killed at the Towers. Christians, Catholics, Jews, atheists and Muslims shared the pain of their lost loved ones.
Flags were flown at half mast throughout the Country. Stores handed out flags to their customers. Signs were everywhere displaying the anger and anguish we all shared. The world shared our grief and sent letters of condolences and support to the victims families. President Bush vowed to get the Taliban and al-Qaeda, our Country needed restitution for the deadly events of 911. Despite the fact the UN was not behind an immediate infiltration of Iraq, Bush made the decision to go ahead with a military surge. The majority of the Country supported Bush for his aggressiveness, our allies quickly stepped in. The world was united in war with the terrorists.
We Will Never Forget who was responsible for the invasion. Islam Radicals boasted of their deeds. It is a well known fact that Islam wants to conquer our Country. The Koran states they are to conquer and kill infidels. After they have conquered they build giant temples to commemorate their deeds.
We can not let our guards down now or ever, our Country is very vulnerable to terrorists.
I thank God for the actions taken to stop the Koran burning, the consequences would have been severe and could have erupted world violence and terrorism to an extreme we have never seen. I am sure Radical Islams feel they have won another victory. This is not a victory for them or anyone else, this is the RIGHT thing to do. No different than the Muslims wanting to build a mosque at Ground Zero, that is the WRONG thing to do.
I often wonder what Obama would have done after the 911 attacks. From my observations there would have been little if any retaliation. If the Koran burnings take place and violence erupts, would this administration show any form of aggression towards radical Islam? No, I don't believe they would. After all, Obama wanted to go over and talk to Bin Laden. What a joke! Our Muslim backing president does not have the cajones to defend this Country in a terrorist attack or any other kind of attack. Talk and words will NOT stop Islam, they do not believe in any form of peace talks. They will attack us and openly talk about conquering the world. The so to say "peaceful religion" is only peaceful within their own kind. Their ideas that they can get along with the Christian is totally garbage. In Islam countries, they are attacking and brutally murdering unsuspecting Christians. They want no part of any UN and their Humanitarian Committee.
World Peace is still in the distant future. Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize, for what? He wants world peace, but has done nothing to stimulate it, instead he has gone out of his way to destroy our relationship with many of our allies and has elected to tell the world we are not a Christian Nation but a Muslim Nation. I only see us drifting farther from the prospect of World Peace than ever before.
Today, 9 years after the invasion on our Country, we still mourn the innocent lives that were lost. We still wonder what the purpose of the attack was. Did Islam need to show their power or just prove they could invade our Country? It was a warning to ALL AMERICANS AND THE WORLD, we will not let our guards down. As we solemnly remember the victims we must also remember the cause of our sorrows.
God Bless America!
