If it wasn’t for reports of enemy suicide bombings, it would be difficult to tell from listening to the MSM that there is a war on. Even worse is the attitude of those supposedly representing our government. The Democrats seem substantially more worried about George Bush then Zarqawi or Bin-Laden. Yet again, there is another leak from the CIA, an organization that is suppose to protect us by learning the secrets of the enemy but seems to be better at leaking our secrets to the enemy. So the questions that Americans are not asking themselves is:
What have the Democrats done to make us safer from terrorism?
Well, if you have to think to think about it, that says something, doesn?t it? I think one of the reasons this hpocrisy has been allowed to continue is the seeming short memory of most Americans, and that the media would rather post picture of naked Iraqi terrorists with leashes in prison then innocents being decapitated. So regardless of what the media prints, who really is the enemy? Who is attacking both the West and moderate Muslims? Obviously, it?s not the Republicans. So why is it that all you hear is lies and and attacks on the Republican party? Why is it that Abu-Graib a household word but the countless attacks against moderate muslims and Christians are ignored, such as this attack:
Seven suspected Islamic terrorists confessed during an interrogation that they planned and carried out the beheading three Christian schoolgirls on October 29th 2005.
So, in case you forgot, let me remind you again of who the enemy is.
Disturbing 9/11 Tapes Played at Moussaoui Trial
Two new and disturbing audio recordings of calls made from the south tower of the World Trade Center to 9-11 operators on Sep 11, 2001 were played for jurors at the sentencing trial of Zacarias Moussaoui this week. The Alexandria, Virginia jury heard calls placed by Melissa Doi, 32, from the 83rd floor of the south tower and by Kevin Cosgrove, 46, from the 105th floor of the south tower.

At this point the tower collapses.
I do not wish to politicize a tragedy, but Al-Qaeda and the Taliban have declared war on us and a portion of this country cares more about winning elections then winning a war. So who is playing politics with a tragedy? And for those that think this is some recent event that will go away on itself or if we leave Iraq, let me give you a list of reasons why it won?t.
Tours, Hattin, Constantinople, Las Navas de Toloso, Rhodes and Malta, or Lepanto, or more recently the 1882 Beruit bombings, the 1983 Marine Barracks, the 1985 Achille Lauro, 1986 Berlin Disco, 1988 Pam Am Flight 103, 1993 World Trade Center, 1996 Housing complex in Saudia Arabia, 1998 Kenya and Tanzania, USS Cole, 911 attacks, and the countless other attacks made by Muslims throughout the world that the media ignores. Let?s don?t forget female genital mutilation, honor killings, abuses of women, and oppression of all major fundamental human rights by Islam.
And it is not just the west that suffers.
There are other videos and pictures, but they are difficult to watch. This is what the media fails to report while they daily find the time to attack our president and weaken our military. (And why is liberals and N.O.W. more worried about gay marriage and killing babies then alll the abuses of women under Islam?) So as the media reports another leak that damages our security, a new item has emerged that the MSM has failed to report, courtesy the NY Sun and Dinocrat.
Iran Declares War
President Ahmadinejad?s letter to President Bush, widely interpreted as a peaceful overture, is in fact a declaration of war. The key sentence in the letter is the closing salutation. In an eight-page text of the letter being circulated by the Council on Foreign Relations, it is left untranslated and rendered as ?Vasalam Ala Man Ataba?al hoda.? What this means is ?Peace only unto those who follow the true path.?
It is a phrase with historical significance in Islam, for, according to Islamic tradition, in year six of the Hejira – the late 620s – the prophet Mohammad sent letters to the Byzantine emperor and the Sassanid emperor telling them to convert to the true faith of Islam or be conquered. The letters included the same phrase that President Ahmadinejad used to conclude his letter to Mr. Bush. For Mohammad, the letters were a prelude to a Muslim offensive, a war launched for the purpose of imposing Islamic rule over infidels.
Much of the rest of Ahmadinejad?s letter is devoted to portraying Mr. Bush as an infidel. Given that Mr. Bush is not about to convert to Islam, what the letter presages is, if anything, an Islamic attack. So the thing to think about is what this implies for American policymakers. For one thing, no step short of converting to Islam will avert the planned attack so long as the regime in Tehran remains in power. All the ?carrots? that the doves in the American foreign policy establishment want to offer – abandoning Israel, offering Iran ?security guarantees? and economic and political relations – fall short of what Iran?s president demands. He demands that America ?follow the true path,? that is, convert to Islam. Short of that, America will not receive peace from the Iranian regime.
Yesterday, we brought you a message of peace from the Iranian Dear Leader. Today, it?s business as usual, via Australian ABC:
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said that Israel ?one day will vanish? as he ramped up his anti-Western rhetoric in a speech to university students in Jakarta. ?This regime one day will vanish,? the leader said, complaining that when elections were held in the Palestinian territories ?and supported by its people, liberalism did not want to recognise it?. Last October, the Iranian president declared that the Jewish state should be ?wiped off the map?. In April he said that Israel ?cannot survive? and that migrants to the Jewish state should go back to where they came from.
Ahmadinejad means business, make no mistake. Every time we see some sort of flabby column, such as this one, indicating that the West should be accommodating to Iran and Islamist radicals in order to get them to moderate their positions, we call to mind the character of Ellis in the movie Die Hard. He?s the poor sap who thinks he is sophisticated but gets his head blown off because he has failed to realize just what kind of men he is dealing with. We fancy we do understand just whom we are dealing with.

We, Democrats and Republicans, as in WWII, should be working together on this. Politics should end at the water’s edge. If you do not know who the enemy is, how can you win?
