Wall St. Journal Continues “Muslims Are the Real Victims of 9/11” Coverage

By Debbie Schlussel

As I’ve already noted, every week is “Be Kind to Muslims” week in the media.  But this week leading up to the tenth anniversary of 9/11 features a stepped up version in which Muslims–not 3,000 Americans mass-murdered by Muslims–are the real victims.  And so it goes with the Wall Street Journal, particularly today.

When you think of all the people whose lives “changed forever” because of the 9/11 Islamic terrorist attacks, would a widow of a waiter be one of them, merely because she’s Muslim?  When you think of all the widows and widowers who lost spouses on 9/11 to Islamic terrorists, would you spotlight out of the thousands, a woman merely because she’s Muslim?  Well, that’s what today’s Wall Street Journal does, spotlighting Baraheen Ashrafi, the same Muslim woman whose kids were spotlighted on Monday Night’s Islamo-pandering “Children of 9/11” special.  When will the pandering end?  When will the “let’s focus on the Muslim ‘victims’ of 9/11” meme end?  Never.  The fact is, as I’ve noted time and again, 9/11 was the best thing to ever “happen to” Muslims and the best thing ever perpetrated by Muslims.  It’s been a PR, immigration, and special rights, treatment, and entitlements boon to Muslims in America.  On one of the op-ed pages, today’s Journal also includes an op-ed by the imam of the two-blocks-from-Ground-Zero mosque, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, with the headline, “A Call to All Religious Moderates.”  And he clearly considers himself one of them, despite the fact that he, like most American Muslim clerics, refuses to denounce HAMAS and Hezbollah.

HUH?! This is the 9/11 Widow the WSJ Picked to Represent All 9/11 Widows . . .

Today’s Wall Street Journal also asks, on its op-ed page, “9/11:  Did the U.S. Overreact?”  Huh?  The U.S. didn’t react at all, let alone overreact.  We didn’t restrict Muslim immigration or any immigration at all.  We didn’t end the diversity visa lottery.  Instead of cracking down on Islamic terrorism financing, we got rid of the U.S. Customs Service and its successful “Operation Greenquest.”  And we dumped all the former Customs agents and INS agents into a giant, missionless agency called ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), taking away all of their authority to investigate terrorists (and signing it over to the Islamo-pandering FBI).  Now, ICE barely goes after even illegal aliens and is part of a giant bureaucratic waste of money called the Department of Homeland Security, which is neither committed to the homeland–America–or our security, but is working overtime to make nice with the most extremist Muslims on U.S. soil.  So, we didn’t overreact.  We didn’t react.  We under-reacted.  We negatively reacted.  It’s a giant black hole net loss.

For the record, the fraud Joe Lieberman claims the “Islamist Extremists Are Losing.” I don’t know what Islamists are because it’s a fraudulent word created and used by cowards who won’t point to Islam and Muslims–the real problems. There is no such thing as this BS, “Islamists.” And FYI, Joe, they ain’t losin’. They’re winning. Anyone who doesn’t see that has his head buried in the sand . . . or in the U.S. Senate.  The only spot on response in the Journal symposium is from Mark Helprin, who echoes what I’ve been saying on this site for years:  that we should have actually warred against the nations we went into (Iraq and Afghanistan),  put in our own pro-U.S. brutal dictators, and then left.  And that we should wake up to the fact that there is no “Arab Spring”–no Islamic democracy there.  Only Islam.  Still, none of that is “reacting” to 9/11.  Reacting would have meant the things I outlined on our own shores–tighter borders, stopping Muslim immigration, and cracking down on the Muslim population in our midst.  We’ve done none of that and only bent over for them.  Backward and forward.

Why are they doing this? What purpose does it serve to islamo-pander? Why do we benefit from having bolder and angrier muslims in our culture? Can’t we see from France, Sweden, etc. that it doesn’t work?

    Prince Al-Waleed owns part of the paper, that’s why.

    Jimmie L on September 9, 2011 at 4:44 pm

      You’re absolutely correct Jimmie, and I forgot to mention that, that Wall Street Journal is apart of “News Corp.”. And as well all know, about 20% of News Corp’s’ stock in currently owned by a prince in Saudi Arabia.

      Jimmie L,

      I immediately suspected such!

      Now, whenever I read stories like this or hear of them, that is the first question that pops into my mind ~ which muslim owns all or part of that business?

      We’re trying to pay off our home as fast as we can, because guess who bought the mortgage company that we used? We tell people we’re living in a saud palace.

    The last paragraph in the article makes her out as a saint because she won’t re-marry. HA!

    She received $2 million. She sits pretty and would never allow any encroachment on the $$$$$$$$$$.

We should have done exactly what the Russians did in Chechnya (Or more precisely, the world’s largest parking lot formerly known as Chechnya).

You know what, some to most of these “10th anniversary of 9/11/01” shows are NOT mentioning who the 9/11-criminals are! It’s ok if the folks who were affected by the September 11, 2001 attacks give a sob-story, but guess what, you have to identify and name the attackers, simple as that! And the 9/11-criminals happend to be ISLAMIST!

And NO, you moronic braindead dhimmis, this is not “oh it’s the muslim tactics”, you dhimmis (from the left, right & center) need to wake the hell up and see the whole facts for once in you’re lives. Jesus says in the New Testament, “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free”, that’s for you dhimmis who are in denial and living in you’re own personal ivory tower world and have too much pixie-dust in your eyes (I’m talking to all of you anti-DS trolls who are apologist for the “Misunderstood Bears of Islam”).

He is deluded.

“Tens of thousands of Arabs today are risking their lives in Syria and elsewhere, not for bin Laden’s dream of a heavenly paradise but for freedom and democracy.”

This is an outright lie. They oppose freedom and democracy and only seek to implement their particular brand of islam.

    Sunni Islamists want to impose their tyrannical version of Islam in Syria.

    What has blocked them so far are the collective Syrian minorities who make up a quarter of the population and as much as they loathe the Syrian regime, they fear a Sunni Islamist takeover of the country even more.

    That’s why, in contrast to Egypt earlier this year, revolutionary tendencies have not made much headway. Add to that the fact the Assad regime is the most repressive dictatorship in the Arab World.

Why does this not… oh, nevermind.

If Americans had this current Wahhabi-wannabe-cause-Idontwannadie attitude when Pearl Harbor was attacked in 1941, they’d be eating sushi and watching Animes on the Cartoon Network.

Wait… they’re already doing that, eh?

Part of what makes all of this possible is the feminization of this country. See the “good” in everybody, sympathize with the victims, let’s all be social workers.

An Islamist is an individual who is honest about their faith and intentions. Muslims who claim not to be Islamists are the ones who engage in taqqiya or kitman when discussing their views with unbelievers or even other Muslims who are insufficiently righteous in their eye. In essence, the distinction between the two is similar to that of a murderer versus an assasin. The former is quite open and even careless about their activities, while the other exercises more care and patience when pursuing their goals. In the end, their targets are in the same peril.

    An Islamist is a Muslim who advocates a political and totalitarian Islam and seeks to apply it through Sharia on the rest of society. They are not democrats, moderates or believers in tolerance, pluralism and peace. We need a shorthand to describe them and their followers, hence the term. They engage in terrorism and jihad when they have leeway to do so. They are the best organized element in the Muslim World. But we’re not fighting them and the mis-named War On Terror is over. The enemy is the Islam, Stupid!

    NormanF on September 9, 2011 at 9:21 pm

This would be like talking about the victims slaughtered in Germany during the WWII and NOT mentioning the Nazis? Would we stand for that?

JeffT on September 9, 2011 at 6:46 pm

Norman F.,

It is Wahhabi Islamists who are waging all this terror against us and the liberal Moslems. The goal of the Wahhabis is to make Wahhabism the main theology and relegate islam to a secondary level.

The United States of Fools is supporting the Wahhabi eforts to achieve the dream of supremacy. Why?? I do not know may you can tell me.

This morning on the satellite repeat of Glenn Beck’s radio show (as I was waiting for David Webb’s show to start) I heard a very valuable nugget from Beck.

He said at major news stations (including PAWNN-Fraud News) they keep the 9/11 footage under lock and key until this time of year and when someone requests it, they must have a good reason (or they are given the 3rd degree) before they get clearance to use it. Just as we all suspected. No surprise to those who value this site.

And some feel like they are doing well by the general public by keeping the 9/11 footage vaulted. I think DS would quite rightly cut to the chase and label it “Islamo-pandering”.

What a disgrace 10 years after.

And a day before DS reiterated her point in this post, I linked my local papers Islamo-pandering/sympathy for the devils 9/11 Mooslims-are-victims article. Just as DS counted down and predicted.

And I am sure if you look in your local paper, you’ll find one, too.

Muslims aren’t the only victims. Plenty of Christians got bombed to death in Iraq and Afghanistan. And plenty of Americans died there too. They fought for nothing but their leader’s greed and they died in vain. Think about that. Because Iraq wasn’t behind the attacks, was it? And they didn’t have the Weapons of Mass Desctruction.
