As we approach the eighth anniversary of 9/11, it would serve this nation well if all of us would also remember:
#The Muslim bombing of the U.S. Marine Barracks in Beirut, Lebanon, 1983
#The Muslim seizure of the cruise ship Achille Lauro and murder of an American citizen, 1985
#The Muslim bombing, in 1986, of a West Berlin discotheque frequented by U.S. servicemen
#The Muslim bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993
#The Muslim firefight with American troops in Somalia, 1993, “Blackhawk Down”
# The Muslim bombing of Pan Am Flight 1031 in 1996
#The Muslim bombing of the U.S. Air Force barracks in Saudi Arabia, 1996
#The Muslim bombings in 1998 of two American embassies in Africa
#The Muslim bombing in October 2000 of the USS Cole
#The Muslim attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, 2001
#The Muslim bombings in Madrid, Spain; London, England: Bali, Indonesia; Beslan, Russia, Mumbai, India, and the ceaseless attacks by Muslims on Israel
This is merely a listing of the best known events perpetrated by an alleged “religion of peace.”
To forget or ignore them only increases our peril.
An Islamic holy war is being waged against America and the West. It has no “front lines” and its soldiers do not wear uniforms, and are not protected by the Geneva Convention.
