Op-ed:
12 years later...
By: Diane Sori

Today is NOT a day for politics...NOT a day for partisan bickering...for today is a day when we together bow our heads and remember those lost on 9/11...for this is the day when demons from hell walked the earth in New York City, at the Pentagon, and in a field in Pennsylvania...

Today is the day when those on a doomed airliner decided they would forfeit their lives so that others might live...a day when two small words...'Let's Roll'... became ingrained in America's psyche...

Today is a day when we remember true heroes born and true heroes lost...all in the blink of an eye...

Today is the day we hold Memorial Services and cry for the 3000 victims who awoke so full of life on a beautiful sunny day NEVER to return home...NEVER again to kiss their husbands or wives...NEVER again to hold their children...3000 victims NEVER to be forgotten by those left behind...

Today we are still at war with those who pierced America's heart...America's soul...who took away our innocence but who could NOT take away our hopes... our dreams...our resolution and determination...for today new buildings rise towards the heavens...a sign in simple concrete and steel signaling that America survives...that America will NEVER surrender to evil.

America  will survive because America must survive...always and forever...NOT just for us here and now but for future generations who will come to know that on a beautiful sunny day so many years ago a spirit was awoken in everyday Americans...a spirit of survival that can NEVER be taken away.

And so on this most solemn of days as we remember and honor the 3000 victims of 9/11 let's NOT forget the four victims of another  9/11...Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods...for their sacrifice must also be part of our prayers.

3000 heroes plus four...God Bless them all as now they are home safe in His arms...NEVER to be forgotten...always to be honored...always to live in our hearts...forever and a day.

We will never forget...


 It's now 9/11...the day evil reared its ugly head in NYC, at the Pentagon,
 and in a field in Pennsylvania. 9/11...the day heroes were born and heroes died. 9/11...
the day America changed forever and may God be with us on this most solemn of days...
 may God keep those lost safe in His arms forever.


AFDI...Fighting the Fight for Freedom

     AFDI: Fighting the Fight for Freedom
The consequences of misinformation and dissembling on jihad, sharia and Islam are manifest on the eve of September 11th.
 
Tonight, the President spoke about Syria and never addressed the key question: was Assad really responsible for the chemical attack in Syria, and would we be doing anything but helping al-Qaeda by intervening militarily?
 
In the last few days we’ve seen several examples of appalling ignorance at high levels: a leading Senator thinking “Allahu akbar” means “Thank God,” a Secretary of State thinking those “Allahu akbar”-shouting Syrian jihadists are “secular,” and a President of the United States rushing in to war with Syria despite abundant evidence that the rebels we’d be aiding are al-Qaeda.
 
America siding with jihadists -- this shows why education now is critical. At the American Freedom Defense Initiative, we provide that education. We force the mainstream media to shed light on the truth about Islam and jihad in ways they ordinarily never would. We’re bringing the truth to the American people that the media and the Obama government won’t tell – and putting the Islamic supremacist Muslim Brotherhood groups in the U.S. on the defensive in ways no ones else dares do.
 
One way we’re doing this is with our legal fight in Seattle. The FBI recently ran an ad on Seattle buses depicting the 15 Most Wanted Terrorists – but since all are Muslim, Muslim groups demanded that the ad be taken down as “racist.” The FBI and Seattle Transit immediately complied. So now we’re doing the FBI’s job for them, and trying to restore the ad.
 
Fbi ad
But Seattle Transit turned us down – now they say the ad is “demeaning.” So we’ve initiated another lawsuit on free speech grounds. After all, why would peaceful Muslims be offended by depictions of the world’s worst terrorists unless they sympathized with them? And we’ve submitted a Freedom of Information Act request asking for all communications between the FBI and Seattle Transit – we expect to see a sorry record of capitulation to Islamic supremacists, and we’re going to hold them accountable for that in the court of public opinion.
 
Anti-pali ad
 
Seattle is also the site of a recent free speech victory: “Palestinians” ran ads accusing Israel of stealing “Palestinian” territory, but we countered with ads that told the truth that “Palestinian” leaders have said that a “Palestinian” state would be entirely off-limits to Jews. Seattle Transit didn’t want to run it and made us submit an abundance of documentation (which the “Palestinian” hate ad sponsors had never had to do), but we fought and we won. We countered the vicious anti-Semitic “Palestinian” campaign with the truth.
 
We’re also fighting a legal battle against our unjust ban from Britain. The British government uncritically accepted information about us given them by Leftists and Islamic supremacists – and we’re not taking it lying down. The Home Secretary responds, Letter Treasury Solicitor (here).  We’re working on a full appeal, and have contracted with British legal help. With the British government letting in a steady stream of Islamic jihad leaders who preach blood and murder, to bar us for speaking the truth about jihad and calling for defense of equality of rights for all shows how far Britain is sunk. We could give up and leave them to their fate. But we’re committed to the fight for freedom: the fight against the ban is just about us, but about whether voices of freedom will still be allowed to be heard in Britain. We say: 911poster revise copy 2They must be.
 
And in yet another legal battle, we’re challenging the U.S. Trademark Office’s denial of a trademark for our “Stop Islamization of America” name. The Trademark Office said the name denigrated all Muslims – a claim rendered ridiculous by the Muslims valiantly taking to the streets and fighting against Islamization in Egypt, toppling the Muslim Brotherhood regime there. We’re appealing their denial. Several news agencies recently covered our appeal, bringing previously unheard-of media attention to the all-important concept of Islamization.
 
When we’re not preparing and reviewing legal briefs, we’ve been planning for a Memorial and Press Conference at Ground Zero on September 11, 2013 the twelfth anniversary of the 9/11 jihad terror attacks at 1PM at the southwest corner of Zuccotti Park, at Church and Cedar streets in lower Manhattan. Get event details at AFDI911.com
 
Robert Spencer and I will be hosting, and featured speakers will be 9/11 family member Nelly Braginsky, 9/11 first responder Alan T. DeVona, Sudanese human rights activist Simon Deng, and Coptic Christian human rights activist Ashraf Ramelah. We’ll be focusing on the outrageous anti-American goings-on at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, and the need to tell the truth about Islamic jihad both at that Museum and in the public square – where the truth about Muslim persecution of non-Muslims in Egypt, Sudan and elsewhere is still largely ignored.
 
We can’t do any of this without your help. We don’t have a large staff – or any staff at all. We don’t have the sumptuous offices other organizations have. We don’t have a huge base of well-heeled donors. All we have is the truth – and you. Please help us follow through these initiatives and keep on fighting for freedom into 2014.
