The leftist/Islamic machine is in full throttle leading up to the tenth anniversary of September 11th.
Ground Zero mosque radical Rauf (his mosque mistress Farhat 'Daisy' Khan riding shotgun) said, "9/11 was a watershed, was a major milestone, and a major catalytic force in, in catalyzing the attention towards the issue of Islam, it’s presence in the West, and it brought into much greater prominence our work and the importance of our work."
And so it has. And their minions have been very busy in the propaganda war leading up to 9-11. Their foot soldiers (the young and the clueless) are hitting the streets shilling for the Ground Zero mosque asking, "Are you for the building/community center?" and claiming "it's not a mosque."
They are creating Goebbels-style propaganda websites and promotional videos, and trying desperately for them to go viral. Big money being spent lavishly.
Sites like "Change the Story" -- yes, change the story from this:
Another jihadist propaganda website, PREPARE New York for 911, is running a similar video. It galled me, and if you watch it, you’ll see the level of subtle, stealth attack we are under: this vile video is insulting and grotesque. It is a smear campaign of destruction to advance Islam. Its selling of Sharia as similar to Jewish law is a lowlife lie. Let’s hope this trash does not wind up in our schools.
This vile video is insulting and grotesque. It is a smear campaign of destruction to advance Islam. The selling of sharia as similar to Jewish law is a lowlife lie.
There are many such initiatives. An evidently very well paid publicist, Elizabeth Potter, has contacted me no less than eight times in the past two weeks to promote the taqiyya (the Islamic mandate to deceive to advance Islam) in yet another video for myfellowamerican.us.
Let's hope this trash does not wind up in our schools.
The worst of this sharia compliance is in the 911 Memorial and Museum. This was written today by Michael Burke, who served on the family advisory committee for the memorial and the advisory committee on the museum center to the Lower Manhattan Development Corp. His brother, New York Fire Department Capt. William F. Burke Jr., Engine Company 21, gave his life on 9/11.
This Sept. 11, the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks upon America, New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg will dedicate the massive, $600 million National September 11 Memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center. What Americans have not been told is that this “memorial” will remake Ground Zero so that it does not acknowledge 9/11.
Instead of acting as a constant reminder of the attacks, a symbol for us and future generations of the evil that struck, the death and destruction it caused and the heroism and sacrifice in response, the memorial will wipe out all evidence and memory of the attacks.
Replacing all reminders of the attacks will be two immense “voids” with gigantic subterranean waterfalls designed to express exclusively, as per architect Michael Arad, the continuing “absence in our lives caused by these deaths.”
About 500 trees will be planted upon the site. They are, we are told by memorial officials, “traditional symbols of the rejuvenation of life.” They also will eradicate all trace and memory of what stood there for 30 years and its destruction on Sept. 11.
The cause of “these deaths,” how these people came to be absent - that is, 9/11 - has been deemed irrelevant and even contrary to your memorial “experience.”
The memorial is not about that; it’s about you.
Cities and towns across America have humbly requested a segment of the twisted steel of the WTC to feature in their own modest Sept. 11 memorials. The only memorial where one is not welcome is the “national” memorial at Ground Zero. Those iconic remnants, exactly because they are iconic, are considered far too gauche for the jury of intellectuals and artists who chose the design.
The National September 11 Memorial at the WTC will not include the iconic WTC “Sphere” - again, exactly because it is iconic. “The Sphere” stood in the center of the WTC plaza for 30 years as a symbol of world peace. On 9/11, though badly damaged (a piece of one of the planes tore through it) it survived the attacks in place and was embraced by many Americans as a symbol of the nation’s strength and resiliency.
That is why it cannot be returned.
It sits at Battery Park, about a half-mile from Ground Zero, where it was installed March 11, 2002, the six-month anniversary of the attacks, as a “temporary” memorial. Battery Park is undergoing its own renovations, and “The Sphere” will have to moved.
One 9/11 anniversary at Ground Zero, Mr. Arad told me that returning “The Sphere” would be “didactic.” That is, it would tell us what to think.
Somehow disposing of it is not telling us what to think.
The 9/11 memorial will not identify Christine Lee Hanson, who died with her parents when United Airlines Flight 175 was slammed into the South Tower, as being “age 2.” This might convince you that the American victims were “innocent” and the foreign terrorists “guilty.”
That would be telling us what to think.
It will not include the initials FDNY, NYPD or PAPD. It will not include the words “firefighter” or “police officer.”
Recognizing the heroism and sacrifice of the firefighters and police officers would contrast those virtues with the barbarism and crime of the terrorists.
And though Mr. Bloomberg has said our values demand a Ground Zero Mosque, he will not allow the Rev. Mychal Judge, the FDNY chaplain who died while praying the Lord’s Prayer in the lobby of WTC 1, to be identified as “Fire Chaplain Father” Mychal Judge.
It is only traditional Judeo-Christian values that have no place at Ground Zero.

Here are some of the leading voices among the 911 families on the 911 Memorial and Museum:
The spin stops here (but don't count on Bull O'Reilly to expose any of this: he is still hosting Muslim Brotherhood groups on his show, like Hamas-tied CAIR).
Are you going to stand for this or are you going to join us September 11th at our 911 Freedom Rally at Ground Zero?
