Eight years ago, the United States was attack, AGAIN, by Islamic Muslim Terrorist. I remember it like it was yesterday. At that time I was living in New Jersey, close to the New York state border and New York City. I once stayed at the World Trade Center back in the 1980’s when there was a Marriott Hotel next to the towers. I remember eating at the Restaurant “Windows on the World” located at the top of the North Tower building also known as World Trade Center One.
The attack on September 11th, 2001, was far more deadly than the previous attacks against the Towers. On February 26, 1993, was attacked by Islamic Muslim Terrorists.
The attack was planned by a group of Islamic Terrorists including Ramzi Yousef, Mahmud Abouhalima, Mohammad Salameh, Nidal Ayyad, Abdul Rahman Yasin and Ahmad Ajaj. They received financing from Khaled Shaikh Mohammed, Yousef’s uncle. You might remember who that guy is.
In March 1994, four men were convicted of carrying out the bombing: Abouhalima, Ajaj, Ayyad and Salameh. The charges included conspiracy, explosive destruction of property and interstate transportation of explosives. In November 1997, two more were convicted: Yousef, the mastermind behind the bombings, and Eyad Ismoil, who drove the truck carrying the bomb. The 1,500 lb (680 kg) urea nitrate-hydrogen gas enhanced device was intended to knock the North Tower (Tower One) into the South Tower (Tower Two), bringing both towers down and killing thousands of people. It failed to do so, but did kill six people and injured 1,042.
Another Muslim Terrorist that eventually was convicted and incarcerated was Omar Abdel-Rahman also known as the blind Sheikh. This religious leader responsible for acts of violence including the November 1997 Luxor massacre, in which 58 foreign tourists and four Egyptians were killed.
It has been said that as they were leading the Sheikh to prison, a guard remarked that the towers are still standing. To which the Sheikh replyed, “for now“. I’m paraphrasing, of course, but he was right.
On the Morning of September 11th, 2001, Islamic Muslim Terrorist attacked the United States, Again!
This time with far deadlier results.
There were a total of 2,993 deaths, including the 19 hijackers: 246 on the four planes (from which there were no survivors), 2,603 in New York City in the towers and on the ground, and 125 at the Pentagon. An additional 24 people remain listed as missing. All of the deaths in the attacks were civilians except for 55 military personnel killed at the Pentagon. More than 90 countries lost citizens in the attacks on the World Trade Center. That’s right, there were more than just Americans that got killed on that day. New York is a melting pot of immigrants from all over the world and many of them worked in this area of New York and lost their lives to Islamic Muslim Terrorist.
On that day, the World Trade Center towers were destroyed by Islamic Muslim Terrorist using airplanes as Weapons of Mass Destruction. Not only were the towers attacked, the Pentagon in Arlington Virgina was attacked and passengers prevented another attack on Washington and crashed in Shanksville PA.
At 8:46 a.m., American Airlines Flight 11 was crashed into the World Trade Center’s North Tower, followed by United Airlines Flight 175 which hit the South Tower at 9:03 a.m. Another group of Islamic Muslim Terrorists flew American Airlines Flight into the Pentagon at 9:37 a.m. A fourth flight, United Airlines Flight 93, whose ultimate target was thought to be either the United States Capitol or White House, crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania at 10:03 a.m, after the passengers on board engaged in a fight with the Islamic Muslim Terrorists.
Moment of Impact
For many years now, Islamic Muslim Terrorists have been attacking the United States and United States interests all over the world for years. They plan to attack America again. The Obama would have you ignore what happen on 9/11 and make this day of remembrance, just a distant memory. Indeed not just a foggy memory, but forgotten altogether.
The Obama White House is behind a cynical, coldly calculated political effort to erase the meaning of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks from the American psyche and convert Sept. 11 into a day of leftist celebration and statist idolatry.

What does the Muslim Association of Hawai’i have to say about this event in American History?
Nothing!!! Just like Obama and the Democrats,
They would rather you Zip-It up and Shut-Up
WE WILL NEVER FORGET
It didn’t take long before the Obama disparages the memory of those killed on September 11th, 2001. By making this day a day of National Community Service and Remembrance. This insults the people that lost their lives on that day. It insults the families, friends and loved ones of those who lost their lives on that day. This is not a day of National Community Service, it is a day of Remembrance. What Obama is doing is cheapening the memory of the largest attack on American soil in history. National Community Service, like what? ACORN?
It is American Exceptionalism brings out community service without the coercion of government. There is no need to bring Community Service into a day of Remembrance. It dilutes the meaning of September 11, 2001. It takes away the attention of the greatest act of Mass Murder committed upon this great country by Islamic Muslim Terrorist. It is a vulgar attempt by the Obama to lessen the value of the lives that were lost on that day, and the lives of our Military that have fought these terrorist since September 11, 2001. The American People are perfectly capable of self-voluntarism without the governments help, thank you very much.
But this is who Obama is.
