Eleven years now since that other September 11, a day that will live in as much infamy as Pearl Harbor. We must not forget, but we also must not forget that radical Muslims are still coming after us. Five percent of the delegates at the Democratic convention were Muslim, though they make up just 1 percent of the country. But more are coming.
Do you doubt this is why the Jerusalem clause was removed from the platform, along with the designation of Hamas as a terrorist group and the position that Palestinians be settled in their own state and not in Israel? All of that language was re-inserted after the omission was exposed, but you get the game, don't you?
Political correctness aside, radical Muslims are infiltrating this country with a determination that would astound Nazis and Communists who failed to do the same, but not for lack of trying.
In every nation where Islam was a minority and is now a majority, this has been their pattern. Why should we believe something different about America?
