September 11th: A Day That Will Live In Infamy


The link below is a video shot on September 11th from an apartment window facing the Twin Towers. The couple who shot it lived on the 36th floor so they had an overview of the whole event. They didn't release the video to the public until 2005. It's long, but it's an intimate reliving of that day, with sounds of the couples' reaction to events, and the sound of the television news going in the background. The video is entitled simply: What We Saw

Watching the video brought the day back vividly. From my perspective today, 9/11 was a day of awakening for me. Until then, I had no interest in Islam. I didn't think it was important. I didn't understand what caused the terrorist attacks that had happened throughout my childhood (in the 1972 Olympics, the hostage crisis, the hijackings, etc.) and if you had asked me to guess at the time, I probably would have thought terrorists were simply fanatics creating random acts of violence for random reasons — to force a government to release prisoners, to get airtime for their cause, to scare people, or whatever.

But 9/11 was so much worse than previous acts of terrorism, and so much closer to home, it woke me up. The attack on the WTC was obviously a well-organized project by a fairly large group of people, using effective long-term planning, all for the purpose of inflicting a huge number of casualties. And my question was, for what?

It was so shocking, I was strongly motivated to understand where it came from, who these people were, and why they were doing this. What I've learned since then has often surprised me. I had no idea Islamists were such a large group, or so well-funded, or had such an all-compassing goal. But along with discovering the scope of the problem, I've also discovered that ordinary citizens like me could do something to help defeat it.

I feel I've personally repeated what Americans collectively went through in WWII. When the war in Europe and Japan started, most Americans didn't want to get involved. They wanted to go about their business and they hoped the problem would just go away. But when Pearl Harbor was bombed, everything changed. They realized how significant the problem was, and they fully understood their more trivial concerns would have to be put aside. The same change of mind has happened to many of us in the West in response to 9/11 and the change of mind has only deepened with subsequent events.

Since that day I have learned a great deal about Islam, and have been encouraging others to do so too. An understanding of the terrifying brilliance of Islam hasn't become as widespread as I had hoped, but more people are becoming aware of Islam's prime directive, and that is encouraging. I hope you watch the film, What We Saw, share it with your friends, and renew your commitment to finding a solution to the causes that led to 9/11 and the over thirty-nine thousand terrorist attacks since then.

Hadrat Muhammad (Peace be upon him), the Holy Prophet of Islam was born in Makkah in 571 A.D. Makkah known as "The Mother of the Cities", though situated in an arid and sterile valley enjoyed fame as a religious centre because of the location of the Holy Ka'aba, the House of Allah. According to tradition the Holy Ka'aba, was first built by Adam. After the Flood it was rebuilt by the Prophet Abraham and his son Ismail. Makkah was also a great commercial centre, and controlled the caravan routes to Yemen, Syria, and Iraq.

In the Arab annals the year of the birth of the Holy Prophet is known as the "Year of the Elephant". During this year, an army under Abraha, the Christian ruler of Yemen invaded Makkah. The object was to destroy the Ka'aba so that Makkah should lose its importance as a centre of pilgrimage.

Abraha rode on an elephant, an animal which the Arabs had not seen before. The custodians of the Ka'aba were not strong enough to face the invaders in battle; they retired leaving the protection of the house of Allah to Allah Himself.

And verily, Allah protected His House. A flock of birds pelted them with stones of baked clay that made the armed forces of the invaders like the dried powder minced by the cattle. An unusual storm of rain and hail swept over the valley and flooded the army camp. A strong wind lashed the countryside and Abraha and his hosts dispersed and retreated in despair and it proved to be the final retread of Christianity from the heartland of Arabia.

"Тhe terrifying brilliance of Islam" is my favorite article, one of the best works on Islam, I think so. We published it in Russian a few years ago on the Russian social network, then on the Telegram channel. Thank you!

There can be no doubt that Osama bin Laden was grinning on that day of September 11, 2001 when he received news of that murderous affront on humankind and America, being such an evil and vile character that he was. Bin Laden when he found out that his demonic scheme worked all he could do was sit around a grin. That Islamic fiend Bin Laden that no sympathy or empathy all for all the people who died the awful way in America. For he was actually glad about that murderous jihad calamity that occurred that day of 9/11. To such a callousness of that character as Bin Laden the Bible teaches “He who is glad calamity will not go unpunished.” Proverbs 17:5. For that’s just what happened. For as they say “What goes around comes around.” So when his deadly violence came back on him in his compound on the outskirts of Abbottabad he was no longer grinning. For on the day the heroic Navy SEAL’s exterminated him, the report was that he looked confused and scared. Likewise the Bible teaches “For whatever a man sows, that he will also reap” Galatians 6;7. Bin Laden sowed violence and death so therefore he reaped violence and death. The very words of Jesus thus are proven be to be true. For Jesus taught the “He who takes up the sword shall perish by the sword.” Matthew 26:52. For Bin laden took up the firearm and he died by the firearm Osama bin Laden is now suffering in the fire of hell. May the name of Osama bin Laden rot in history. As the Bible teaches “The name of the wicked shall rot.” Proverbs 10:7.

Also, the heroes of United 93 banded together to fight the Jihadists and foiled their evil scheme by preventing more death and destruction in Washington D.C. The heroes united in a band or cord against those Islamic evildoers. The above is a reflection of Ecclesiastes 4: 12. This reads “Though one may be over-powered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken..”

Finally, all these jihadists will have a harsh awakening after they die; they will find out that they were lied to about the 72 virgins in a paradise. That is just one of many “cleverly invented stories” of men Second Peter 1:16. Instead of the virgins they will find themselves in hell with no hope.

On the early morning of September 11, 2001 the 19 jihadists of the Islamic terrorists network, Al Qaeda were about to carry out that jihadist scheme to hijack some jet planes to use them as missiles for mass murder and destruction of jihad attacks.

Those 19 jihadist/Muslims in their Islamic delusion firmly believed that after they died in their jihad attacks for the cause of Islam as “martyrs” in those murderous Islamic terror attacks they would then immediately go to an Islamic paradise with many virgins, houris,. Each large group of houris for his individual use only. With is type of wedding to them in a forever sex- filled marriage to them.

This belief is based on the teachings and doctrine of the Qu’ ran and the Hadith. This belief is not only absurd but it’s also a false teaching based on a false doctrine. This is known because Jesus taught ‘Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels in heaven.” Matthew 22:29, 30. [K.J.V.]

Furthermore, the Bible warns against accepting and believing in religious story/ doctrines, no matter how enticing they might be. For the Bible warns against giving “heed to fables….” First Timothy 1:4.

In addition, such a lust –filled fable /doctrine and the deluded men who would believe in it was predicted the Bible. For the Bible informs its reader in Second Timothy 4:3, 4. “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

In great contrast to the religious fiction of such a fable /doctrine that has deceived many jihadists into engaging in suicide/homicide attacks, Christians have the reality found in Second Peter 1:16. Which reads “For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ…”

Walter Sieruk 12:41 PM  

On September 11, 2001 those murderous and destructive and deadly jihad attacks by jihadist/Muslims of al Qaeda were not acting out in a hijacked form of Islam but actual Quran based non-watered down hard core. As the Quran teaches in 9:111, “The believers fight in Allah’s Cause, they slay and are slain, they kill and are killed.” Likewise, this “holy book” of Islam also instructs in 47:4 “Whenever you encounter the disbeliever strike off their heads until you make a great slaughter among them…”

The harsh reality is that using jets planes as missiles as those jihadists did on 9/11 do does ,tragically , make a much greater “slaughter among them” than a sword can. There are the other verses the give instruction for violence and killing for the cause of Islam, as 2:191. 5:33. 8:39.9:5, 38-39.

Walter Sieruk 12:43 PM  

On September 11, 2001 the jihadists of al Qaeda committed those murderous affronts of that horrendous jihad mass- murder Islamic attacks. Which was the outcome of the Islamic doctrine from the Qu‘’ran [the Koran] of a sexual paradise with many virgins, houris , in it for the male Muslim /jihadist who dies fighting in the jihad for the cause of Islam is found in the “holy book” of Islam, the Koran, in Sura 44:54. 55: 56. 78:31. Also there is the Koranic instruction of Sura 9:111 which teaches “The believers fight in Allah’s Cause, they slay and are slain, they kill and are killed.” Getting back to the origin doctrine of Islam from the Koran of a sex –filled paradise with many houris for the use only by the male jihadist who dies fight for the advancement of Islam.

All this started when the founder and prophet of Islam, Muhammad manufactured Islam he put , had stolen, some of sex doctrine of Zoroastrian mythology and a yet smaller bit of Hindu mythological sex teachings along with as well as mixture pagan Arabian folklore and myth plus a heavy dose of Judaism and Christianity . Also some of it apostate “Christianity” For the prophet of Islam, Muhammad, couldn’t discern the difference between genuine Bible based Christianity and bogus “Christianity.”

Those words and teaching Muhammad gathered from many sources, including the virgins /sex place mythology. , and taught as “Divine Truth” were written down on many things then later compiled and then went into the composition of the Koran. So the hoax of the Koran is actually a mixture and fusion Judaism Christianity and mythology of other religions and now the Muslim clerics with the Koranic brainwashing of young Muslims who are thoroughly mind programmed into believing this Islamic/Koranic virgins myth.

This deception of false doctrine /myth into the thoughts of some people was predicted in the Bible along with the false teachers who engage in the indoctrination of such a myth /doctrine into the minds and hearts other people. For it is written “For the time will come when they will not stand wholesome teaching, but will follow their own fancy and gather a crown of teachers to tickle their ears. They will stop their ears to the truth and turn to mythology.” Second Timothy 4:3,4. [N.E.B.]

With this twentieth anniversary of those murderous jihad affronts which occurred on September 11, 2001 is there very appropriate to post some lyrics of a rather old song that was written way before the murderous jihad affronts which occurred on September 11, 2001. That many apply to this current late decade of this twenty–first century.

The title of that song to “Try to remember…”

Some of the lyrics to well apply to now are “Try to remember the kind of September when life was slow and ho, so mellow… Try to remember the kind of September when you were a tender and callow fellow…Try to remember the kind of September when life was tender that no one wept expect the willow… Try to remember the kind of September when love was a ember about to billow…”

Yes, that was the past and the somewhat as it was pre- 9/11 Septembers before those Islamic terror murder attacks on that specific day.

Now viewing things as they are .Life is no longer slow of mellow. For all patriotic Americans need the be fast and keep up with news and information regarding Muslim terrorist activities. Now men can’t be so tender and callow. Men need to keep strong vigilance for things, items and individuals the appear suspicious and it’s no longer good be naïve. Likewise the lyrics of the song further went “Try to remember the kind of September when life was so tender that no one wept expect the willow…” Now many people have wept because of the heinously vicious murdering actions commit by Muslim terrorists. In addition, the old song lyrics further are “Try to remember the kind of September when love was an ember about to billow…” Now love instead of being and “ember about to billow” the sad and tragic reality is vicious hate by jihad-minded Muslims now pose a danger. Nevertheless, people of the West need to reject hate as to not be of the same mindset as the jihadists are

Therefore, don’t let them fool you, the many apologists for Islam is will endeavor to set up a smokescreen to hide the reality of the truth about the violence and deadly essence of Islam by making the bogus claim that the al Qaeda operatives mass murderer on 9/11 were not real Muslims and that they were breaking the laws of the Qu ‘ran by their violence and deadly actions.” The apologists for Islam will further make the totally false claim that “Those terrorists on 9/11 were only criminals who hijacked the peaceful religion of Islam for Politics.” Those outrageously false claims are weak attempt of damage control for the image of Islam to the West. For the “holy book” of Islam the Qu ‘ran. For the Qu ‘ran instruct in Sura 9:111. Muslims who are engaging the jihad that “The believer’s fight in Allah’s Cause, they slay and are slain ,they kill and are killed “ That’s just what happened on September 11, 2001 the jihadists of al Qaeda “killed and were killed” in those 9/11 jihad attacks against both humankind and America. The Quran also teaches in Sura 9:123 to that jihad –minded Muslims behavior towards non-Muslims “let them find harshness in you…” Those Islamic attacks on 9/11 were indeed very “harsh.” As Sura 2:191 instructs “kill the disbeliever wherever you find them.” That’s a very strange kind of “peaceful religion” if there ever was one. Just to site one more out on many from the Qu ‘ran about the instruction of deadly violence is Sura 47:4. Which instructs “Whenever you encounter unbelievers strike off their heads until you make a great slaughter among them …”

The harsh reality is using jet planes a missiles as those jihadist/ Muslims did of September 11, sure made a greater “slaughter among them” then sword can. Wake up West to the actual nature of Islam before it’s too late.

On September 11,2001 many Muslims rejoiced in different countries around the world then they found about the outcome of those al Qaeda jihad attacks in which so many people died . They were so glad and happy about all those people who died in such terrible ways. The reason they felt so happy with joy is because ,as the Bible explains such people have had "their conscience seared with a hot iron." First Timothy 4:2. {K.J.V.] For them that "hot iron” is Islam

Walter Sieruk 10:37 AM  

As for those scheming deceitful insidious, sinister and murderous jihadists hijackers of al Qaeda who committed all those despicable evils of September 11, 2001.

The Bible teaches in Proverbs 11:20 “Deceit is in the heart of those who plot evil.” [N.I.V.]

Walter Siereuk 9:31 AM  

About that September 11, 2001 jihad murderous affront against both humankind and America the following might be interesting to some people. A type of thinking of many from Middle East is the sayings that “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” This type of Middle Eastern “philosophy” may explain, to a degree, how Muslims of two different branches of Islam which are hostile to each other can work together against what they perceive as a “common enemy.”

In this case the mullahs and other in power in Shi ‘ite Iran can work with the jihadists of al Qaeda against which they see as “The Great Satan” By that term they mean the United States of America. As the Muslim author, Rohan Gunaratna , explained in his book INSIDE AL QAEDA . For on page 198 it reveals that among different Islamic terror originations that “Ideological tolerance and intergroup cohesion as a means confronting a common enemy.” So another author, Robert Spencer, in his book which is entitled THE COMPLETE INFIDEL’S GUIDE TO IRAN supply’s information about this topic. It has been keyboarded that this book reveals “Iran’s long –standing support of terrorists- including shocking evidence that Iran helped plain the 9/11 attack.”
