Check out my column today in WND. Our humanity is not in teddy bears and songs sung and ball games played in the wake of an attack on our country. Our humanity is in proud and fierce defense of our freedom, our values, our nation.
Has America lost her soul?
Exclusive: Pamela Geller notes absence of outrage about motives of Boston jihadists
n light of the jihad bombings in Boston, and the media whitewash
about their real cause that has followed this week, the question is: Has
America lost her soul?
The country that was established on the premise of individual rights
and freedoms has, in recent years, abandoned the morality that bound us
together as a nation. We have lost our reverence for life and liberty.
Our armed forces best illustrate this moral code with their honor code
of no man left behind. We go to extraordinary lengths to bring back our
fallen, never leaving a man (or woman) on the battlefield – so enshrined
in our DNA is the exaltation of humanity.
And yet we see a disturbing trend: America did not rally, protest or
demand answers when the Obama administration classified the Fort Hood
jihad massacre not as terrorism, but as “workplace violence.” No one –
not any politician or mainstream media figure of significance – called
Obama on his cover-up of the jihad motive in the slaughter of our
unarmed soldiers in Texas.
And the same nonchalance was exhibited in the wake of the jihad
massacres of Ambassador Chris Stevens and other Americans in Benghazi on
Sept. 11, 2012. Our ambassador and attaches were slaughtered in cold
blood in Benghazi, and Obama and several administration officials blamed
the First Amendment, saying that it had all happened because of a video
about Muhammad. And yet there was still no outcry. Two soldiers held
off a jihadi army for over seven hours while calling and begging for
help, for cover, and no one came. That was unforgivable. Did America
Worse still, the nation re-elected this deceiver.
There was also the sharp spike in “green-on-blue” attacks – murders
of American and allied troops by our Afghan “partners.” Soldiers we
train are turning on our boys, the same people who are training them,
and killing them in cold blood. And still no outcry.
But this? This is a defining moment. Will America turn a blind eye to
the motive in the Boston bombing? Mothers, babies and families were
targeted for slaughter and mutilation on the streets of a happy,
glorious event on Patriots Day. Will the people rise up and demand that
Obama address the jihad threat? Will there be any call on Obama to
return the now-banned word “jihad” and honest discussion of Islam to
counter-terror training materials? Will the American people demand the
document regarding the Saudi national al-Harbi, who was questioned and
then hastily exonerated over the Boston jihad bombings, and then set for
quick deportation – a deportation that was allegedly tied to the Boston
Or have we lost our soul as a people united in a shared value system that places the lives of Americans above all else?
The fact that the FBI was warned about the jihadi Tamerlan Tsarnaev
and did nothing is a reflection of the Obama scrub of counter-terror
training materials. They had him, they talked to him – and what did they
Why wouldn’t they surveil him? Because Muslim Brotherhood groups in
the U.S. like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the
Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and so many others have embedded
operatives in positions of power and used their lapdogs in the
mainstream media to bully our law enforcement agencies into dropping
such programs. The Associated Press won a Pulitzer Prize for exposing
these surveillance programs several years ago. Can we withdraw that
award on the blood and flesh of the 200 victims of the Boston jihad?
These same Muslim Brotherhood groups – CAIR and ISNA, as well as the
Muslim American Society, the Muslim Students Association and others –
have warned the Muslim community not to talk to law enforcement, and
clearly they haven’t. When the authorities circulated photos of the
Tsarnaev brothers, no one who knew them in the Muslim communities in
Massachusetts came forward to identify them. That is deeply troubling.
Worse still, so many jihad plots have been thwarted by an FBI
operative who infiltrated a cell or befriended a jihadist with murderous
plans, and in these cases, Muslim Brotherhood groups agitate for the
freedom of the jihad plotters, saying that they were “entrapped.”
Well, the FBI didn’t infiltrate this Boston jihad cell – and we have CAIR et al. to thank for that.
Will Americans just go along like sheep to slaughter, or will they rage
against the machine? The time is now. Our history and, more importantly,
our future demand it.
