Pearl Harbor was never forgotten or forgiven by those who lived through WWII. German-Americans were not locked up in concentration camps like the Japanese. It was the nature of the attack. Germany declared war and then sunk our ships. Perhaps not by design, but Japan attacked American forces hours before declaring war. The outrage experienced by my parents' generation was such that I was brought up to distrust any Japanese because of Pearl Harbor and the perception that the "dirty Japs" were never to be trusted. I have since learned otherwise.
More people were killed on September 11, 2001, then were on December 7, 1941; sixty years earlier only 55 civilians lost their lives. Nine years ago nearly all deaths were civilian. Already the memory is fading, the outrage cooling, the resolve waning among many Americans.
I know there are honorable Muslims but I am unlikely to accept them on face value. I do not want them to be placed in concentration camps, but I do want all visas for Muslims wishing to come to the US to be canceled until this sorry, murderous mess is sorted out.
The Muslims have never apologized for their use of unarmed civilians to carry out their attacks. In fact, they still blame us. Muslims danced in the streets as nearly 3,000 Americans lost their lives.
I will never forget the sight of Palestinians celebrating and giving candy to their children as Americans burned in the fires of 9/11.
I will never forget the treachery of Islam and it's arrogant marginalization of everything outside its narrow purview that led to this attack.
And keep your damn, stinking mosque away from GZ.
UPDATE: I had forgotten this. The US - your tax dollars - funds the Palestinians to the tune of millions of dollars every year.
In 2008 - $415 million
In 2009 - $300 million
In 2010 - $400 million
Now I gotta go break something.
