I know that some of you here question whether Iraq is part of the war on terror. Let me be very clear: This is a battle between true Islam, for which a person’s liberty and rights constitute essential cornerstones, and terrorism, which wraps itself in a fake Islamic cloak; in reality, waging a war on Islam and Muslims and values….
The truth is that terrorism has no religion. Our faith says that who kills an innocent, as if they have killed all mankind.
Thousands of lives were tragically lost on September 11th when these impostors of Islam reared their ugly head. Thousands more continue to die in Iraq today at the hands of the same terrorists who show complete disregard for human life.
Your loss on that day was the loss of all mankind, and our loss today is lost for all free people.
And wherever humankind suffers a loss at the hands of terrorists, it is a loss of all of humanity.
It is your duty and our duty to defeat this terror. Iraq is the front line in this struggle, and history will prove that the sacrifices of Iraqis for freedom will not be in vain. Iraqis are your allies in the war on terror.
History will record their bravery and humanity.
The fate of our country and yours is tied. Should democracy be allowed to fail in Iraq and terror permitted to triumph, then the war on terror will never be won elsewhere.
I hope the Democrats in attendance listened and were moved by this brave man’s sincere remarks and accurate assessment of the importance of the Iraqi front in the global war on terror.
If they need more evidence of the threat from Iran and its proxy Hezbollah, they should read this alarming report from CounterterrorismBlog.
