An Open Letter to The President

An Open Letter to The President

Dear Editor;

Since your election to the highest office of this great nation, you have gained my respect and admiration for your leadership and demeanor. It has been a long time since we had a President with your resolve and determination. September 11, 2001 has transformed our Nation just as it did on that fateful day of December 7, 1941, once more waking up this sleeping giant and confirming that patriotism is alive. Muslim fanatics from within America once before tried to topple the World Trade Center, causing great damage to the structures and killing a number of Americans in the process. The same ilk have attacked our interests abroad before September 11, 2001, bombing American embassies and blowing up ships, killing our civilians and military personnel, but since there were no military reprisals, the terrorists were emboldened by this inaction.

After the outrage of September 11, 2001, you showed us that you are a great leader, who can direct his resolve and determination to lead us on a path to victory over the dark elements that wage a war of extermination over all who disagree with their philosophy of conquest and destruction of our way of life.

They have murdered thousands of innocent civilians and seek to bring down this, the greatest democracy in the world, The United States of America. By no means is this their only goal, but it is the first step in a war to convert the world to Islam and annihilate those who resist their philosophy.

There is no question in my mind that a religious war was declared with the cowardly attack on the WTC perpetrated by a faceless, evil entity led by Osama Bin Laden and his loyal henchmen.

We must not rest until those evil men are brought to justice, or justice is brought to them.

It is apparent that the problem does not end here. Saddam is a threat to world peace just as Adolf Hitler was prior to World War II. We all know what the indifference of the nations of the world did, and the price the world paid for their inaction. We must not let history repeat itself.

Mr. President, let me reassure you that our nation will stand by when you go after the butcher of Baghdad.

History can be a good teacher, but only if we learn from past mistakes.

With respect and admiration.

God Bless America!

JOSEPH CEDER
