Crosstalk: September 12, 2019
Shahram Hadian is a former Muslim from Iran who came to the states in 1978 and committed his life to Jesus Christ. Shahram started the TIL Project, the Truth in Love Project, which exposes the true goal of Islam and the threat of Sharia in America. He has served as a pastor, a police officer, and a former candidate for Governor in Washington State.
When you look at 9-11 media coverage across America, you’re likely to find articles and other remembrances about the first responders, the loss of life, as well as ceremonies taking place. However, there’s one thing that is noticeably absent. That’s the motivation for the attack.
Shahram noted that from our media, government officials or even law enforcement we see no mention of Islam. He believes it’s intentional because we know that after 9-11, and particularly after the Obama administration came in, there was a concerted effort to remove reference to the motivation for the attack. That’s in spite of the fact that the 9-11 Commission Report highlighted the motivation of jihad, Islam and its supremacist ideology, along with the mention of Muslims.
Shahram contends that post 2009 (post Obama), we can see that within the law enforcement/national security apparatus, the media world, the education system and perhaps even within our churches, the mention of the ideology and motivation behind 9-11 has been eradicated.
So basically things have gone from Islam to jihadism to radical Islam to terrorism and now it’s moved on to terms like violent extremism. The result is that 18 years later, when we say ‘never forget,’ are we remembering all of 9-11 or just the trauma of it without remembering the reason behind it?
Are we any better 18 years later? You’ll be better able to answer that question when you review this broadcast as Shahram gives a brief overview of the ideology of Islam, whether we’re safer now after forming the Department of Homeland Security, examples of how Islam is proliferating in spite of 9-11, the results of the 9-11 Senate hearing on Monday, and much more including input from Crosstalk listeners.
