November 2001 - JIHAD: The radical Islamic threat to America
"What is at stake is nothing less than the survival of our civilization."
ThatÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs what former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the House Government Reform Committee in a riveting address on the subject of Islamic terrorism a week after the Sept. 11 attacks on New YorkÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«There may be some who would have thought a week ago that to talk in these apocalyptic terms about the battle against international terrorism was to engage in reckless exaggeration. No longer.ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´
Both sides of the aisle agreed emphatically with NetanyahuÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs assertions about the nature of the terrorist threat and how it must be fought.
Yet, the way the United States is addressing this threat leaves us wondering if congressional members actually heard what Netanyahu said.
The terrorism that plagues Israel every day of the year is the same terrorism that hit the U.S. Sept. 11. We believe it is the same terror that earlier resulted in the shootdown of TWA Flight 800 over New York and destroyed the federal building in Oklahoma City. The U.S. government has deliberately covered up the overwhelming evidence of the Islamic terror connection in earlier attacks on our country, probably because of the impact it might have on the phony, so-called ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«peace processÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ in the Middle East.
ItÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs time to be realistic. ItÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs time to be straight with the American people. ItÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs time to recognize who our true enemies are. ItÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs time to go after them ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å all of them. ItÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs time to fight back. ItÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs time to unshackle our true allies in their fight ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å our mutual fight. ItÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs time to stop pretending that Iran, Syria, Arafat and others of their ilk are actually going to be of some help in this titanic battle for our way of life.
We hope this special issue of Whistleblower helps prepare you ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å and the nation ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´å for just that fight.
