I was fortunate today to attend a seminar put on by an anti-terrorism expert. There is no way I could actually condense the things that I heard into a blog post. I do, however, want to share the opening quote of the seminar because it is definitely food for thought.
“Only a coaliton of Marxists and Islamists can destroy the United States.”
Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, aka Carlos the Jackal, in Revolutionary Islam, pub. 2003
The seminar provided a lot of history and background on terrorism in the United States. It was totally enlightening, but also disturbing. It also pointed out the dangers of substituting political correctness for truth. We live in a time of danger that requires honesty and vigilance on the part of Americans. I hope we are up to the task.
