Never Forget

(Also see Fourteen Years Later, my post today at Infidel Bloggers Alliance)

This year, Marcy Borders, the 9/11 survivor known as "The Dust Lady," died of cancer at the age of 42:


Be sure to read about Marcy Brooks.

The monster of Islamic terrorism came roaring from cerulean skies in passenger jetliners used as missiles. 


Jihad came to America.






Jihad is still being waged against America and the ideals of freedom. 


Most recently, colonization via Hijrah is bringing hordes of Muslim migrants invading Europe in the form of a soft jihad

This time, the Muslim hordes are not being turned back at the Gates of Vienna as happened on September 11, 1683.  Instead, the Muslim hordes are being welcomed into Europe in the 21st Century.  How long will this soft jihad remain peaceful?

  1. Marcy died so young...and look at that adorable little boy who lost his mother....what a tragedy. We'll probably not know if her cancer came from 9/11 dust, etc., but ...........it's so very sad.

    Watching the people who threw themselves down all those floors to certain death is still almost too much to watch, but, as I've always said, it's like we owe it to them to see the horror of what they went through.

    In Vienna, in a fiacre with a driver, we saw a statue of Prince Eugen....The driver turned around to us and said "He drove the Muslims out, but...they're back!!"
    OH yes, they are. BIG TIME. If ONLY those who mean no harm to others would join together against the terror......yet we're supposed to not be bigoted and just stand by as Europe is ruined and we're next.

  2. I wonder how many Europeans, much less Americans, know who Charles Martel was and the significance of his leadership.
    I live in Ypsilanti.
    Few people know of the man it is named after.

    2. Probably less than that. Ed's comment made me look it up. I know there is a sizable population of Greek origin in the Detroit area ("Greektown"), but naming a town after a hero of the war of Greek independence - no idea.

  4. A PERSONAL RECOLLECTION of EVENTS SURROUNDING 911

    I was watching television in a waiting room in the Maumenee Building at Johns Hopkins when all hell broke loose almost in real time right before my eyes. I had traveled over at thousand miles to undergo my first corneal transplant by Dr. Maumenee. The next thing we knew the PENTAGON was hit by another weaponized plane.

    Needless to say the eye surgery was "canceled until further notice" as all available medical personnel prepared to head toward the Pentagon.

    I remember seeing three different Muslim women covered from head to toe in black slinking eerily along the corridors outside the waiting room. I had to fight the impulse to smash them to the floor, rip their obscene garments off their ugly bodies, and spit on them before stomping them to jelly.

    I had never felt anything remotely like that degree of rage before in my life.

    I thank God I somehow was able to restrain myself.

    DIDADIN was born the very next day, however.

    I had flown to Baltimore, but had to take the train back. The most miserable trip I've ever had to endure. The weather was hot. The coach was filthy, the air-conditioning was broken, the toilets were stopped up, the smell of sh-t wafted out into the corridors, the cars were filed to overflowing with dreary, badly dressed, unwashed, dull-eyed people looking for all the world like peasant refugees in an old movie.

    I had to sit next to a guy with terrible body odor and serious bad breath for TWENTY-SEVEN HOURS. The food was inedible.

    Overnight, our once- beautiful homeland seemed transformed into a Turd World country. In many ways we've never recovered from 911. I wonder now if we ever shall?

      Thank you for recounting your personal recollections of 9/11/01. I shall put mine here -- further down in the comments section.

      My emotions that day ranged from rage to fear to "Why? Why? Why?"

    2. Fourteen years have passed, AOW, and I am STILL trying to get the vile STENCH and extreme discomfort of that railroad journey out of my nose.

      That was just two days out of a seventy-four years, but I cant forget it. can you IMAGINE what it must be like for those caught directly in the storm of all wars past and present? Can you IMAGINE what it must have been like for those trapped as POW's and those daily tortured in Concentration Camps?

      If only people could be conditioned to develop greater empathy for OTHERS while diminishing concern for themselves, we'd automatically live in a better world.

      In the Final Analysis The GOLDEN Rule is the ONLY Rule.

  5. _____ A Wry Memorial _____

    The Swarthy Ones took over;
    And made weapons of four planes.
    The riders had no cover;
    They suffered dreadful pains

    That ended once their deathtraps
    Burst into roaring fires
    Turning instantly to mere scraps ––
    Cinders –– made of former flyers.

    The burning towers crumpled,
    And fell into the street.
    New York was more than rumpled;
    It briefly knew defeat.

    The nation drew together;
    We felt collective grief.
    Anger broke its tether;
    To express it gave relief.

    But just a short time hence
    We were at each other's throats;
    And built ourselves a fence
    Over which the Devil gloats.

    We've failed to give the orders
    To build a proper wall
    Sealing off our borders
    To the fiends who’d make us fall.

    Instead, we've made division,
    Went to war against ourselves,
    Became mired in derision
    Sparked by partisan elves,

    Who forget this blessed land
    In pursuit of powers lost
    In close elections manned
    By fraud. So, tempest-tossed

    The country’s now in turmoil.
    The Enemy's our own.
    He said ‘twas all for Big Oil,
    And then usurped the Throne.

    The heap of twisted rubble
    Raising toxic fumes for weeks
    No longer gives us trouble
    Because of media leaks

    Designed to throw us off the scent
    Of whom we need to blame
    And encourage ruinous dissent
    That hopes to break the frame

    That holds us all together
    And preserves our liberty,
    So many now doubt whether
    We really should be free.

    And each rabble rousing louse
    Should 'neath these words be pinned:
    "He who troubleth his own house
    Shall inherit ––– the wind"

  6. On this day, we should especially remember that if these progressive socialist democrats who have just voted to give $150 BILLION to Iran, a state-sponsor of Islamic terrorism. The same Iran that currently holds Americans as hostages. The same Iran that shouted “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” during the negotiations and Secretary of State, John Kerry, said not one word.

    With 150 BILLION dollars Iran can and will get a nuclear weapon, ballistic missiles, and conventional weapons, just like we saw on 9/11. It will be rendered almost inconsequential given the possibility of another holocaust and a nuclear attack on our nation.
    It’s time to stop playing “nice guy.” Being a “Nice Guy” is okay if your playing in a Tennis match or a Golf game at your country club. But being Mr.“Nice Guy” doesn’t work in politics, especially if your dealing with a lying, untrustworthy enemy like Iran “Nice Guys finish last in politics, and in War. And being “Nice” is getting our country ruined, or destroyed..
    It is readily apparent that the Progressive Socialist Democrats or should I say Communists represent a clear and present danger to America and all of us Americans.

  7. MY PERSONAL RECOLLECTION OF 9/11/01:

    I left for the bank around 8:50 A.M. Back in those days, I never watched or listened to or read the news.

    It was a beautiful day, and I headed to the bank in my Mustang GT convertible -- top down with music blasting from the CD player.

    At the bank, "VISA net" was running slowly, but nobody knew why. Yet.

    When I got home, I popped the disc out of the car's CD player and heard something like "The White House is being evacuated. There's been an attack. The Twin Towers in NYC have been struck by jetliners. National emergency." This, from a station that never airs the news.

    I dashed into the house and phoned my news-hound cousin to find out what the hell was going on.

    I filled the bathtub and draped my uncle's Arlington Cemetery flag from the eaves of our front porch.

    For the rest of the day -- some 12 hours -- I stayed glued to the TV set and eating my way through an entire package of Oreo cookies along with pots of coffee. And praying. The security jets began humming overhead and didn't stop for days and weeks and months on end -- 24/7. I live inside the security-jets loop.

    I saw the Twin Towers fall. Couldn't believe my eyes! Something out of the film Independence Day.

    My husband's workplace was evacuated because the building was next to to a gas tank storage unit.

    My cousin's husband phoned he and said, "I'm on my way home. Something is happening to America." It took him forever to get home, of course. Gridlock, with little cell phone access.

    Homeschool classes for the day were canceled. We waited for hours to find out if the two homeschool dads in the Pentagon were alive. Phone services were intermittent. One of the dads was supposed to be in the Pentagon room which took the direct hit. Thank God he had been called away to another location; he left the Pentagon just moments before the plane crashed into that wing of the Pentagon. The other dad was on the other side of the building.

    On 9/12/01, I began my research about Islam. In December 2002, I reached my conclusions about Islam after massive amounts of reading and research. Those conclusions brought me to the blogosphere, so here I am.

    The book that "did it" for me: The Sword of the Prophet. The historical record is clear!

  8. You can't make nice-nice with Islam.

    Case in point: Saudis “offended” by National Geographic featuring Pope, ban the issue.

  9. I remember that day all too well. I was working on an analysis for my boss and sitting on the trading floor in midtown. The traders were upset because the yield on the 10 year treasury wasn’t being updated from Cantor-Fitzgerald. Every bond is traded relative to the 10 year. It was as if the pulse of the market had stopped. We didn’t know what was wrong.

    Our communications specialist (incidentally a marine reserve) called Cantor and actually got through to them. All he could tell was the guy at the other end reported that there was paper and debris flying everywhere. Little did we realize the guy on the phone would soon be dead and our marine would soon be in Iraq.

    As soon as the image appeared on the television we knew what was wrong but didn’t want to believe it was deliberate. After the second plane, which we all saw, hit the 2nd tower we knew it was deliberate but didn’t want to suspect anyone in particular.

    Over the next two years, I also read everything I could about Islam. I read the harshest critics like Trifkovic, ibn Warraq, and Spencer. I also read the most shameful apologists like Armstrong and Esposito. I read history and theology books that were 50 and 100 years old (including Hodgson recommended by our friend Ducky). And I read the chapters in Gibbon’s history of Rome. I also read parts of different translations of the Koran.

    Like many of us, I found the critics were more plausible. It wasn’t a few extremists twisting the texts. It was there, in the religion, waiting to be applied.

    1. paper was flying like the plane had hit and air from outside was causing it? But the guy didn't seem panicked? WOW.
      How horrible.
      "like the pulse of the market had stopped" That's pretty prophetic still, isn't it.

      I passed a Rose Shop in Paris with my husband, the window was full of beautiful roses...I said "Imagine a world without roses?" Then we got back to our apartment and saw the second plane hit.
      Weeks later, I realized I'd said a mouth full that day, not knowing that I'd feel forever after 9/11 that this world had somehow lost its roses.

      I did the same!

      I didn't want to believe what I discovered.

      But there it was! The evidence!

      Upended my worldview, I tell ya. Prior to all my research, I had described myself as "pro-Arab" and "pro-Palestinian" -- concepts that I gleaned at the university, of course.

    Please see Bunkerville's post today: Remembering the Boat Lift of 500,000 on 9/11.

    Excerpt:

    It took 9 hours to rescue the 500,000 people trapped in lower Manhattan that day. It was the largest sea evacuation in history, larger than the 339,000 British and French soldiers rescued at Dunkirk in 1940.

  13. Few people remember the first Islamic assault on Vienna was in 1529. During this time the future martyr Tyndale was active in exile, the English court decamped from the Roman church over Henry's marriages, and Luther had powerful princes protecting him (so he did not meet the fate of Huss or Tyndale). Then Islam mounted its first assault on the redoubt of Vienna. People recognized the existential threat which had not gotten this far into the heart of Europe since Charles "hammered" them 200 miles from Paris. The German princes, catholic and Lutheran, relaxed their own religious 'war' and the Catholics allowed the Lutherans more freedom to keep a united front against the Islamic threat. They were smarter then.

    The [more or less] unity of western Europe's powers succeeded in turning back the Turks and starting a long unrolling of 100 years of unhampered conquests in central and eastern Europe.

    2. And we used to do this? In California, for example, you could not qualify for state assistance unless you had been a resident of the state for merely one year - and the courts said THAT was not permissible! But it is the obvious and clear answer. Many immigrant groups had help from the local Catholic League, or Hadassa, or whatever private fraternal organization. But NOT the state. Or course, we could just expect the jihadis to fund such charities (now than we're releasing billions of dollars to Iran), but at least WE would not be paying for them, too.

  20. AOW: I heard the 3 heroes who saved people on that French train by bringing down the gunman; they all graduated high school and probably have had some college..they're approx 23...here is how 2 of them spoke:
    "Me and him went to help..."
    "The first thing I seen was..."
    And have you noticed all answers on TV now start with "I mean..." even when it's a first question, nobody's asking for qualification?

    Believe me, I think those kids are GREAT HEROES, but to hear their grammar.....what ARE kids taught in school today? How do their teachers speak? We got grammar less from books and more from hearing our folks and teachers....... it makes me cringe and I thought of emailing you but your comment about kids not knowing what caused 9/11 opened the door to this...
    GEEEEEZ!
    By the way, those boys, other than their grammar (and not all spoke quite like that) are amazingly selfless and sweet and humble...marvelous.
    I suppose something in school has to go when they're busy teaching about condoms and global climate change...it all takes time, doesn't it
