Since the end of the Civil War, there have been only two major attacks against our country that have taken place on our soil: Pearl Harbor, which cost 2400 lives, and 9-11, which cost 2900 lives. Both of those attacks were committed by fanatical adversaries who wished to destroy the United States.

In hindsight, Pearl Harbor was the beginning of the end for the fledging Japanese empire. Will 9-11 mark the beginning of the end of the American Republic? The signs are ominous.

Twenty years after we thought we had avenged 9-11 by destroying al Qaeda in Afghanistan, we have retreated from that country in ignominious defeat. It's almost as if 9-11 was bait to lure us into a war the Muslims knew we couldn't win.

They know this because Muslims are commanded by Allah to wage war until the world is ruled by Islam, however long that takes. Afghanistan took only 20 years. The Muslim conquest of Constantinople took 718 years. As an unknown Muslim once said, "You've got the watches, we've got the time."

And they certainly do. For 1400 years Islam has been at war with the rest of the world with no end in sight. Until we wake up to that fact, every life lost in the 9-11 attack, every life lost in Afghanistan and everywhere else in the Mideast since 9-11, will be a life lost in vain.

I'm afraid many more will be lost in vain because we're allowing thousands of Afghan refugees to settle here. Most of these are unvetted, but that should be a simple operation. Any refugee who plans to attend a Mosque should be routed to an Islamic country.

I'm fine with EX-Muslims. It's the practicing Muslims who worry me, ones like Major Nidal Hasan, the Army psychiatrist who killed 13 and wounded 30 at Fort Hood in 2009; or the married Muslim couple who killed 14 and injured 22 in San Bernardino in 2015; or Omar Mateen, who killed 49 and wounded 53 at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando in 2016.

Those are the most lethal attacks in the US since 9-11. There have been many other minor attacks, although if you were one of the 17 people who lost a limb in the Boston Marathon bombing of 2013, or if you knew one of the "only" three people killed in that attack, you might not think it so "minor." Ditto for the eight wounded and three killed at the Pensacola Naval Air Station by a Saudi pilot-in-training in 2019.

Worldwide, there have been over 40,000 lethal terrorist attacks since 9-11. Such attacks occur almost every day but rarely make it onto the nightly news. That would disturb the "Islam is peace" mantra and open the reporters to charges of Islamophobia and racism.

Here's the tally from last month: Attacks 25 – Killed 123 – Injured 151 - Suicide Blasts 0 – Countries 11

Islam is the longest-lived, most deadly ideology of hatred in the history of humanity, yet the Southern Poverty Law Center protects the Religion of Islam by labelling ANTI-Islamic organizations as "Hate Groups." This is political correctness gone mad.

Our failure to recognize Islam as our enemy is suicidal. The threat that Islam poses has been hammered home time and time again, yet we have learned nothing.
