Why that date? There has been a lot of speculation. It may be because on September 11 1683 the armies of Islam were met, held, & thrown back at the gates of Vienna.

Or it could be a coincidence. I don't know. Terrorists don't tell me why they choose what they do. 2) #September11
But what Americans & people in the West seem to not understand is that this was not some isolated incident. It was seen in many parts of the world as a victory against the US, & against the West. 3) #NotIsolated Incident #September11
People celebrated this horrible event from Jakarta to Lahore, from Amman Jordan to Baghdad and Teheran as a victory. 4) #celebration

If you don't believe me, take a look around. How many women in the US or Europe felt compelled to wear a Hijab in 1970, or even in the streets of Istanbul or Teheran or Algiers, and compare that to today. 5) #women #hijab #US #Europe #Istanbul #Teheran #Algiers
And now in the USA, we even have members of Congress who openly dismiss the 3000 dead of 9/11 as a minor incident of no meaning. 6) #USA #Congresswomen #Tlaib #Omar #Dismiss3000AmericanDeaths #September11

I am not attacking anyone's religious beliefs. I am saying that we have to be aware of the growing politicization in one religion & recognize the threat that presents to everyone. 7) #PoliticalIslam #RadicalIslam #Islamicists #Jihadis #terrorists
Take a look at Egypt -- where the greatest threat to Egypt's domestic peace & liberty is the Muslim Brotherhood. Take a look at how the Arab-Israel problem has become less Arab-Israel than it has become a religious crusade...8) #Egypt #MuslimBrotherhood #religiouscrusade
(a bad word but you know what I mean) by radical Islamicists using religion to motivate.

But rather than recognize the threat & deal with it, we take off shoes in airport lines & talk a lot about security.

Remember 9/11 - but don't ignore the long term meaning and context." 9
