Remember 9/11 – 13 Years Later- We just didn’t just get here
Greg, Pat and John share the importance, on days like today, the importance of remembering our history and the tragic events that took place on September 11, 2001. This day, 13 years ago, terrorists hijacked four different planes bringing fear and declaring war to America. Looking back on the events of Radical Islam against America 13 years ago can be viewed as a cold compared to the flu of the Radical Islam being presently seen. Taking into consideration the timeline of events that have taken place regarding Islam has been talked about in depth. Beginning with the first Presidential speech at Cairo University, to Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann sounding the horn of the ideas and concepts of Radical Islam being purged, to al Qaeda, Hamas, ISIS, and now ISIL, has been summed up and confirmed with remarks from former Vice President Dick Cheney. According to the Daily Beast, and according to Rep. John Fleming of Louisiana, Cheney said that Obama “has actually done things that have supported the Muslim Brotherhood.’ The former vice president then went on to name the Muslim Brotherhood as ‘the beginning of all the Islamist groups that we’re dealing with now like Hamas and ISIS.’” If someone named Paul is hitting you, it doesn’t matter if they change their name to Bill; you’re still being hit. In response to the atrocities of ISIS, it is significant to recognize that the President did comment that he was not for the evilness coming out of this.
Again, looking back 13 years ago at the leadership of America, President George W. Bush shared his opinion about America pulling forces out of Iraq. His comments at the time were highlighting the reality that is presently being seen. “To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we are ready would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region, and for the United States……..It would mean that we’d be risking mass killings on a horrific scale……It would mean we’d be increasing the probability that American troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous.” Without knowing our history, we are bound to repeat it. In contrast to Former President Bush’s response to military generals, President Obama has decided to do the contrary considering the insight. Even amidst bad partnerships, the Bible brings clear guidance and what to do and how to respond. Be encouraged as you learn how the church can respond, and so much more.

It is important to remember how this event came about. According to the Washington Free Beacon, “Funding for the conference was provided by a Clinton donor and Lebanese-Nigerian billionaire Gilbert Chagoury, according to organizers.
