Like a ship pulling away from shore, time brings distance to all events. No pain is as fresh ten or twenty years later as on the day it happened. The shock of the impossible becomes the new normal and then it becomes more background noise.
“A single death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic,” said Joseph Stalin. This is something that the statisticians in Berlin, Moscow, Tehran and Riyadh know quite well when they count up their numbers. But compound death is not a statistic, it is incomprehensible. The banality of the media coverage of September 11 reveals the struggle of grappling with a story too big to tell that can only be broken down into human fragments of personal stories.
http://www.jihadwatch.org/2011/09/surprise-head-of-egyptian-supreme-military-council-did-not-respond-to-israeli-pm-or-defense-minister.html Surprise: Egyptian military chief Tantawi did not respond to Israeli PM or defense minister during embassy attack: Egyptians were “unable to locate him” According to Netanyahu, it was a major American intervention — with other reports mentioning Leon Panetta and Hillary Clinton as well as Obama — that made the difference between Egyptian inaction […]
http://www.tnr.com/article/tel-aviv-journal/94655/israel-obama-terrorism-munich I wish it would be historically possible—that is, historically honest—for Israel to be omitted from the long list of target countries that have been the victims of terrorism. Alas, it is not. But President Obama has a habit of making such lists, and he always fails to include Israel (or anyplace within its borders) […]
http://amilimani.com/2011/09/remembering-the-unforgettable/ It is said that “powerlessness frustrates and absolute powerlessness frustrates absolutely; absolute frustration is a dangerous emotion to run a world with.” Sometimes I wonder why I am so restless, why I cannot cease thinking! It seems like the world we live in reveals to us incessantly, at certain moments or in certain circumstances, […]
http://politicalmavens.com/ In schools, in politics and in the media, we are whitewashing the events of 9/11 by ignoring their connection to the ideology of Islamic Jihad. This can only backfire as we raise a younger generation that will have no memory of what we lived through and little comprehension of the forces we are […]
What to Say to the Totalitarian Left on 9/11/11 Posted By Phyllis Chesler http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/what-to-say-to-the-totalitarian-left-on-91111/?print=1 I recently heard from a Canadian school psychologist who lives in Toronto and who has dual citizenship in Canada and the United States. He was “dismayed,” outraged, saddened, and puzzled, and wanted me to explain to him how a feminist academic could have “hijacked a feminist […]
“Unlike the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which publishes a tally of alleged “hate crimes” each year without supporting data, we do provide detail of each incident that we claim as a terror attack and make it available for verification.”
This list of terrorist attacks committed by Muslims since 9/11/01 (a rate of about four or five a day) is incomplete because not all such attacks are picked up by international news sources, even those resulting in multiple loss of life.
These are not incidents of ordinary crime involving nominal Muslims killing for money or some other non-religious motive. We only include incidents of deadly violence that can reasonably be determined to have been committed out of religious duty – as interpreted by the perpetrator.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/columnists/christopherbooker/8754531/Wind-farms-the-monuments-to-lunacy-that-will-be-left-to-blot-the-landscape.html These pointless monstrosities will continue to proliferate until the Government sees sense. Three separate news items on the same day last week reflected three different aspects of what is fast becoming a full-scale disaster bearing down on Britain. The first item was a picture in The Daily Telegraph showing two little children forlornly holding […]
http://www.nycivic.org/articles/050926.html The tenth anniversary of 9/11 has created a media stir of considerable magnitude. The tenth anniversary of Pearl Harbor Day, December 7, 1951, caused relatively little stir. But by then, we had won World War II. Anxiety has been augmented by the authorities reporting a “credible threat” of another terrorist attack on the date […]
