As United Airlines flight 93 dove toward the ground on September 11, 2001, the hijackers piloting the plane could be heard shouting “Allahu Akbar.” In 2004, as other Muslim terrorists beheaded American Nick Berg, shouts of “Allahu Akbar” accompanied the sawing at his neck. And just before Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan opened fire on soldiers at Fort Hood, Tex., in 2009, witnesses say he shouted “Allahu Akbar” as well.
“Allahu Akbar” is normally translated as an exclamation of the greatness of Allah. If you see a pattern in the type of people who use this phrase and the timing by which they employ it, you’re at least more astute than Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, whose greatest concern following the Fort Hood attacks was that American Muslims might face “a backlash.”
Couple Napolitano’s blatant ignorance with President Obama’s willful submission to Islam via his support for the construction of a mosque at Ground Zero, and it’s no wonder radical Islamists are strutting around like banty roosters while simultaneously calling for the death of the West.
The Islamofascists are preparing to raid our castle and instead of defining the enemy and mounting proper defenses, Obama and company are making sure the front door is easy to kick open. We are vulnerable and we must each ask ourselves where we will be when we hear “Allahu Akbar.”
I’m a few days late in pointing out this piece. Still worth a read and worthy of passing around.
So, where will YOU be?
