It was providential in more ways than one that Zacarias Moussaoui was not a part of the activity on one of the aircraft on 9/11. He is now on trial, but mocking everything, including his own lawyers trying to spare him the death penalty. I say this because we can now see the real nature of radical Islam. While survivors and family members of survivors wept, Moussaoui scoffed and said he wanted “to inflict more pain” on our country. He said he had no regrets. Images of the disaster amused him.

Only someone with a heart of stone can behave in such a manner, and it reveals a brand of Islam that clearly has a heart of stone. While the Bible says God takes no pleasure in any man’s death, He is also a God of justice. For justice to be served, Moussaoui warrants the death penalty rather than languishing in a comfortable jail recruiting more inmates to Islam. However, he looks forward to death.

Here lies the stark difference between Islam and Christianity. Islam celebrates death. Christianity celebrates life but even in death, we are more than conquerors. I am paraphrasing John Ashcroft who said years ago that Islam is a religion that asks for sons to be sacrificed; Christianity is a faith whose God sent His Son to be sacrificed for us. Could there be a greater illustration of the difference?

On that fateful day, 9/11, forty brave passengers on Flight 93 followed Todd Boemer’s command of “Let’s roll” and overcame the terrorists on board. They spared the U.S. Capitol. They may be forty of the most brave, loyal Americans ever. Yet some are objecting to the soon-to-be-released film about Flight 93. Five years after the single most deadly attack on American citizens in the history of the nation, our forces are engaged in a global war against Islamic terrorism. This war has lasted longer than WWII. Yet many Americans don’t see it as a war or an ongoing threat and don’t want this film to come out. Some are in denial and others feel it was a fluke and will never happen again. Some who object are just demented to be frank.

The mainstream media complies by trying to bury everything about 9/11 as a part of their anti-war agenda. They remain slaves to political correctness, tolerance, and diversity. But now Zacarias Moussaoui is in their face–in all of our faces. He is revealing his years of Islamic indoctrination, and this is stark reality from which many want to flee.

The terrorists were sure the passengers on Flight 93 would remain passive and remain in the seats. They were wrong. Now our enemies think we will remain passive in our war on terror and they will be victorious. But as Gary Bauer says, ” ‘ Please sit down’ isn’t a policy any nation can follow when wolves are at your neck. But, boiled down to its essence, it is the policy that America’s Left embraces in this war, from Iraq to Iran, from Camp Gitmo prison to intercepts of al-Qaida’s phone calls….”

We need to rekindle the anger America felt on 9/11 and for weeks after, and we need to give God the glory that we have been spared since. Our enemies will not rest until they have conquered the world and placed it under Sharia Law.

I invite you to visit a moving memorial to 9/11 on my Web site at this link http://www.olivetreeviews.org/topics/terrorism_us.shtml As you watch it, thank God that He is our Homeland Security Director. No one ever said it would be easy to be born for such a time as this, but aren’t you glad you are?

Awaiting His return,
