Rabbi Nachum Shifren
September 18, 2011
Each year on the day of my birthday, I must take a sobering moment to reflect on the past. Most people like to celebrate gregariously, letting the world go by as they and friends make merry. Today, I cannot celebrate. As I reach the ripe age of 60, my thoughts go beyond frivolity and toward a future that I have studied while learning about our past.
The news today has been a cacophony of warnings about "possible terror attacks." So, it looks like this: because of 9-11, we must be on the lookout for a sequel to the original. And I'm asking myself: Why are WE on high alert? Why aren't residents in Riadh, Bengazi, Teheran, Karachi, and those other low-lying scum capitals concerned about AMERICAN RETALIATION for the death and destruction they've visited against us? As we re-watch those morbid videos of "palestinians" dancing, celebrating, passing out candies to motorists in Ramallah and East Jerusalem, why are we still giving money to our "peace partners?"
As a teacher in Los Angeles schools for the last 25 years, I have been an eye-witness to the destruction of our nation FROM WITHIN. When I have 5 students out of a class of 45 that salutes the flag, you must understand that this is not occurring in a vacuum. With our insane "multiculturalism" and the breakdown of national pride and self-respect, where our national worth is compared to the merits of countries like Uganda or Afghanistan, it's no wonder why we've been softened up for a blow that told us what the world thinks of us.
If you're like me, you are sick of 9-11. You're tired of the speeches, the hand-wringing by those very same Leftists that have sought to destroy this country for the last half century. You're tired of the platitudes coming from a president who bows down to the very tyrants that are funding madrasas and Islamic Studies departments in every university across the land. You're sick of an Oval Office 9-11 speech, knowing full well that Muslim Brotherhood influence has spread to the highest levels of our government and municipalities. You're fed up with the cries of victimization by Islamists on the one hand, while we're told to me more "inclusive" about Islamic culture and the acceptance of sharia law, on the other.
You have a sickening feeling this 9-11, knowing that the politicians you're entrusted with our security could care less about the lives of you and your families! No amount of flag-waving or political grand-standing can hide the fact that our borders act as a terrorist sieve, through which any malcontent can cross on their way to potential targets.
We cannot tolerate a system that detains lawful Americans at our airports, yet allows radical imams to preach their hatred and train terrorists at dozens of paramilitary camps across the country. There can be no more tolerance of our law enforcement and politicians bowing down in mosques, promoting sharia and Muslim customs in our schools and public places, knowing full well that Christians at prayer would evoke a hue and cry from the seditious left. The time has come to act with deliberation against the insane double standard that nobody has the temerity to address.
On this day of my birthday, I'd like to make a wish list for America:
people that have immigrated here and are spreading incitement against
Christians, Jews, or violence against America, be deported immediately.
-- said people need to be in "tent cities" pending their deportations, with all costs for their maintenance being born by them and not taxpayers.
-- a Manhattan Project style effort to drill for oil, mine coal shale, give American entrepreneurs that can bid to do this safely and with minimal environmental damage, the job
-- have an ROTC in every high school across the land. Stop the pandering to gang bangers and social misfits, create an overt environment of patriotism and civic responsibility
-- immediately remove from colleges and high schools all professors or staff actively inciting violence or hatred toward America or its citizens.
-- inculcate all students with thorough knowledge of the constitution and the founders of this document.
-- stop any and all funding, teaching, or pandering to "multiculturalism" and "diversity". These are code words for racism and reverse discrimination toward Whites and Christians. With a near 50% drop-out rate in my school district, where our state has one of the lowest grades for academic excellence, this is an outrage
In the meantime, I hope for a day in America where instead of tears and empty slogans on 9-11, believed by no one, least of all the terrorists, those miserable perpetrators of violence and rape will be shaking in fear. I wait for a day when the miscreants of destruction will know assuredly that their fates will be sealed. I wait for the day when our spineless, vision less, corrupt politicians will be dispatched to obscurity, replaced by Americans that refuse to surrender to the SWORD OF ISLAM and their evil dictates.
That day will be the happiest birthday any American could ever have!
