Poliltical Correctness Will Kill Us ... Part 5
Why was America attacked on 9/11? Why did Osama bin Laden declare war on the U.S.?
The United States is perceived by Muslims as the leader of the western world ... and we are an overwhelmingly Christian nation. We are ... the infidels (unbelievers).
The mission of bin Laden and radical Islam is to violently overtake the world through terrorism ... kind of a modern-day crusade. Even now there are groups around the world and in the United States plotting and planning.
Steven Emerson, author of American Jihad: The Terrorists Living Among Us, wrote about an incident on Christmas Day in 1992 when he accidentally stumbled upon a meeting of the Muslim Arab Youth Association (MAYA) at the Oklahoma City Convention Center. At the time he was a reporter for CNN so his journalistic curiousity was aroused when he noticed groups of men dressed in traditional Middle Eastern clothing standing around on the street outside the convention center. Wandering inside, he discovered vendors selling radical materials including books calling for the extermination of Christians and Jews and preaching about jihad against the West ... and even children's coloring books with titles such as "How to Kill an Infidel."
Because he was not Muslim he was denied entry into the meeting ... but he found a "recent convert" group where someone "sponsored him" and he was able to enter. Once inside, he was shocked at the hate-speech against Jews and the Western World ... including a speech from a leader of Hamas, the largest militant Palestinian group in the Middle East, whose mission is the destruction of Israel.
Throughout the speeches there were shouts of "Kill the Jews" and "Destroy the West" coming from the audience.
This was in Oklahoma City ... in the middle of the United States of America.
