While The Towers Were Crumbling

Dear Editor,

While the Twin Towers were crumbling and Americans were burning alive in the flames of that hell, an inferno created by Muslim terrorists, the peaceful inhabitants of Gaza were jubilant. They were dancing in the streets and treating the children with sweets in celebration of this manmade disaster that took the lives of three thousand human beings at the WTC who were working or visiting this popular landmark.

For the so-called Palestinians of Gaza, the act of wholesale murder was an uplifting event that called for a celebration. The perpetrators of this inhuman act were hailed as instant heroes, and given free passes to heaven to spend eternity with virgins who only exist in the undeveloped and sick minds of those who plan, execute and celebrate such wholesale butchery of the innocent.

Gaza is in ruins from the reprisals of the Israel Defense Forces for years of bombarding the towns and villages of southern Israel. Now that the war took a hiatus (although rockets and mortar rounds are actually still being fired from Gaza), it is time for the funds to restore the terrorists' nest. Since their oil-rich Arab brothers have no intentions of parting with their petrol dollars, the so-called Palestinians have no problems asking the hated infidels for money to rebuild The Gaza Strip. It is no secret that with rockets fired at Israel, a reprisal attack is soon to follow. Money contributed by countries that experience their own financial crisis will fall into the hands of Hamas, to be pocketed and be used to buy arms for the next time around.

That said; let me direct my disappointment at our new President, who promised a change. Our economy is in a sorry state, we the people are squeezed to a point where we are unable to pay our bills. Foreclosures are rampant and unemployment is at its highest level in decades. We are confident that better days will come, but for now the outlook for relief cannot be detected even with the aid of the Hubble telescope.

Now, while the inhabitants of the terror nest of Gaza are hurting from the war they have initiated by firing rockets into Israel, along comes "Uncle Sap" with $900 million squeezed out of hard-working, cash-strapped, unemployed Americans whose houses have been foreclosed, or are in the process of foreclosure, as well as from Americans who lost loved ones on that fateful day, September 11, 2001. Why spend money on enemies while we here have our own crisis to deal with? Does anyone believe that money and appeasement will buy us friends? It did not work for the Englishman with the top hat and umbrella, Chamberlain, and it won't work for President Obama. Those who have the notion that friends can be bought with money are just as naive as a five-year-old child and that makes them dangerous.
