Two weeks away from the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, presidential candidate and Texas Rep. Ron Paul says that U.S. intervention in the Middle East is a main motivation behind terrorist hostilities toward America, and that Islam is not a threat to the nation.Let Freedom Ring has more on Paul’s outrageous claims.
At a campaign stop on Saturday in Winterset, one man asked Paul how terrorist groups would react if the U.S. removed its military presence in Middle Eastern nations, a move the candidate advocates.
“Which enemy are you worried that will attack our national security?” Paul asked.
“If you’re looking for specifics, I’m talking about Islam. Radical Islam,” the man answered.
“I don’t see Islam as our enemy,” Paul said. “I see that motivation is occupation and those who hate us and would like to kill us, they are motivated by our invasion of their land, the support of their dictators that they hate.”Regarding 9/11, Paul said that attacks against the U.S. from Middle Eastern groups at home and abroad can be traced to the foreign presence of U.S. troops, as well as America’s relationships with dictator regimes.
And now for the Organizer in Chief's version, after saying that HE wants to globalize the 9-11 issue...whatever that means...
The Examiner...President Obama's campaign organization, Organizing for America, goes way, way too far.
Team Obama wants to use 9/11 to push back against protesters, referred to as "Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists" by calling Senators in support of the Obamacare public government option.
Today, the Obama campaign folks sent out a notice to “grassroots” supporters about the planned 9/11"health care organizing event":
What day? Our US Senators return to DC the Tues after Labor Day. That next FRIDAY, Sep 11, is Patriot Day, designated in memory of the nearly three thousand who died in the 9/11 attacks.The offensive notice has been scrubbed from the Organizing for America website, but I was able to get the following screenshot.
All 50 States are coordinating in this – as we fight back against our own Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists who are subverting the American Democratic Process, whipped to a frenzy by their Fox Propaganda Network ceaselessly re-seizing power for their treacherous leaders.
How dare they? Don't contemplate the nearly 3,000 innocent souls murdered by the terrorists. Instead, politicize a day of remembrance.
It does not suprise me whatsoever, but I have not heard one reference by Obama to Christian faith or prayer in rememberance of the 9-11 massacre, or in honor of those first responders who gave their lives.
War Cry...During Holy Week, workers searched beneath #4 World Trade Center for silver and gold from a bank vault, but they discovered a far greater treasure. A Christian worker named Steve was walking into the darkness of the rubble when he suddenly fell to his knees. His partners, thinking he had fallen, rushed to his side to help him. Still on his knees, he pointed his finger and said, “Look, there is Calvary.”
Fallen steel beams formed not one, but three, crosses. Steve’s partners also fell to their knees in those ruins, reminiscent of the scene described in John 19:25, when “Jesus’ mother, His aunt, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene stood at the foot of the cross.” The Spirit of God was present with the women at Calvary as Jesus took the suffering of the world upon Himself.
That same spirit was with the men who found Calvary in the rubble.
It was for you and it was for me that Jesus died on Calvary. May the Spirit of God hover over you today and always.
