"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
-George Santayana

I often use that quote, particularly regarding events of that fateful day 9 years ago. It seems to go largely unheeded by many, but here is an excellent article to which I was sent a link by a friend:

Imagining Islam -by Andrew C. McCarthy:

If only the fantasy were true: If only there actually were a dominant, pro-American, echt moderate Islam, an ideology so dedicated to human rights, so sternly set against savagery, that acts of terrorism were, by definition, “un-Islamic activity.” Imagine an Islam that, far from a liability, proved an asset (indeed, an indispensable asset) in combating the threat against us. Imagine that we could accurately call the threat mere “extremism” — no “Islamic” (or even “Islamist”) modifier being necessary because the “extremists” truly were a tiny, aberrant band, fraudulently “hijacking” a great religion.

If the fantasy were true, who among us would not be proud to mark the annual observance of September 11 by breaking ground on a $100 million Islamic center cum mosque at the site of the most horrific attack in American history? In the nine years since the atrocities that claimed the lives of nearly 3,000 Americans at the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and a field in Shanksville, Pa., such an Islam — if it really existed — would have spearheaded the defeat of America’s enemies.

Read more...it's worth the time it'll take.

Here at "La Casa de Camo", 9-11 is not forgotten:

Many people would love Americans to forget and go back to sleep. Obamao bows to the enemy. The MSM shills for the Jihad Victory Hamosque. The FBI enforces the will of mobs of Moslem savages who don't want their Mein Kampf burned. Real Americans need to take back their country while there is still time.

For nine years the appeasing dhimmies on the left were in great need of taking the red pill (think "Matrix"), instead they continue gulping down their blue pills chased with a good dose of Obama Kool-Aid.

The fact conservative Americans are willing to reasonably and peacefully debate the Ground Zero Victory HaMosque says a lot about us, the fact Muslim fundamentalists and their appeasing lackeys on the left would even consider building the HaMosque on that site says at lot about them.

I have NOT forgotten, and I never will.

I saw a post on another blog the other day that I thought was a brilliant idea. Instead of various organizations publicizing the burning of a Qu'ran, educate people with the reading out loud of it. Get the word out about the "peaceful" words contained therein, so that people are made aware of the truth of this so-called "religion," and it's false "god," Allah.

Grant Jones:
Many Americans seem to have forgotten and gone back to sleep already.

I definitely agree though; those Americans who are still paying attention do need to take back their country while there is still time. November's a-comin'.

The "Matrix" analogy is a good one in this case...except for those aforementioned Americans who are paying attention, and protesting the Ground Zero "Victory" mosque.

I know you are, my friend.

I'll try to keep reminding people.

That sounds like an excellent idea. I'll bet that a lot of uninformed folks would be quite shocked to learn some of the things that are actually said in that book...
