To The Daily Sun,
While some schools showed video clips of the horror of September 11, 2001 as a reminder of how evil can strike and to ensure that younger generations understand how this country was attacked, our leaders act as though they did not get the message. It seems to me that two basic principles seem lost on our Democratic leadership.
Number one is that evil exists in this world and that trying to appease that evil is a fools errand. Also, trying to not offend that evil and making unverifiable deals with evil creates confusion, chaos and death.
Number two is that our democratic, constitutional republic was created with a host of historical anomalies. Freedom of speech, human rights, equality of the sexes, a tolerance of differences, personal liberties, political freedom, material prosperity, separation of church and state and consensual, coequal branches of government bases on law.
Yet somehow, some way, our leaders have thought that they could convince those whose core beliefs are steeped in the doctrines of Islam that they should give up their 1,000 plus years of yearning for world dominance and embrace our unique culture. A culture that is the antithesis of almost everything they hold dear and is based on the Koran and Sharia Law.
