Hurricane Victims Need to be RELOCATED to facilitate reconstruction


Gov Christie Gov Cuomo, Mayor Bloomsburg, Red Cross et al ~ Your efforts to encourage the Sandy {vics} is commendable yet not practical yet..

Katrina serves as a model for what is happening now. I was a Red Cross Volunteer Shelter Manager during the early weeks after Katrina. I was selected because  I had already lived in domestic violence shelters 25 yrs earlier and was a volunteer that has helped host families of domestic violence and assisted  in relocation of families to new homes and cities over the years. I was also qualified because of my own disability and knowledge of how to apply for necessary benefits available within the current system of governments and how to interact with faith based initiative services that are available. When inspected by higher up Red Cross, my shelter was said to be the most efficient and best operated in all of Oklahoma. I cut through the red tape with Real Estates and with the Govt assisted HUD Housing Departments to facilitate re-homing of evacuees based on homelessness superceeding their current waiting lists. I also matched up evacuees with churches that had offered housing and jobs to evacuees.

Immediate  relief, temporary shelters, food distribution and medical aid is but the ” triage phase”  of the recovery process and is inadequate beyond initial weeks following the devastation and not sustainable, Even with NYC offering 2 days free transportation to the masses that can return to work, it costs the city $18 million a day and will cause more long term loss.

Emotional and physical needs of those impacted will exceed the ability of those who currently are attempting to provide those services.  

As each day arises, more people will move out of the shock phase of grief and anger  will follow,which will lead to acts of desperation by those impacted. Increased death and crime will result.

Many communities , for example, have major gas line leaks, which pose threat to life and property.

Infrastructure degradation also poses threat to health & the  life of the population and in many communities can not be remedied prior to the onset of winter weather.Recovery can exceed a year or more.

Chaos and inability for govt & agencies to rise to meet the needs of those impacted in a timely fashion to save lives is unrealistic and no matter what authorities now say, they are only guessing, offering false hope and when they fail to provide services will cause further suffering and potential rioting by those impacted.

No such magic bullet or recovery plan exists to meet the needs of the people.

Many little plans are being created and revised to attempt to meet some of  the immediate survival needs, but without evacuation and relocation of the majority of those impacted the most, expectations can not nor will be reached. Suffering will mount up. Those who suffered total loss will be left homeless and not able to function.

 
STAGING AREAS to receive and place [ vics] in shelters & host family housing in cities around the country need to be set up IMMEDIATELY.

OUR COUNTRY HAS 330 MILLION PEOPLE.

MORE THAN 6 MILLION NOW ARE IMPACTED BY HURRICANE SANDY.

THOSE IMPACTED NEED TO BE INTEGRATED  TO  FUNCTIONING AREAS OF OUR COUNTRY.

WE NEED TO REACH OUT TO THE 330 MILLION TO FIND “HOST” FAMILIES TO PROVIDE LONG TERM SHELTER DURING THE RECONSTRUCTION PERIOD.

HOST cities need to mobilize all available agencies to set up shelters  & contact all real estate agencies to waive red tape & deposits.

RELOCATION of the majority has to be implemented.Just as with the DUST BOWL of the 1930s ,many people will have to move, if even temporarily.

This is not an option to ignore.

FACT:The REGION can not support clean up and reconstruction  while the people remain in the area as it will be impossible to make the area habitable for the winter months that are upon them.

Even if they leave those least affected within the region,  the infrastucture is destroyed and realistically can not support the total volume of residents, businesses and workers that are in the region.

This needs to be considered as a ‘war zone’. It has to be considered and declared uninhabitable under current conditions.

[Vics] left to sift through their rubble are not emotionally or physically capable of surviving there during clean up and reconstruction.

They will all be potential PTSD [vics] and develop multiple health issues related to living without infrastructure repairs.

It will be increasingly difficult to obtain food and fuel  or transportation to their jobs.

Businesses will not be able to sustain themselves with added costs related to failed infrastructures. Businesses will need assistance in relocating to cities where they can conduct their businesses until reconstruction is complete.

PHYSICIAN HEAL THYSELF?- IMPOSSIBLE~! Expecting the population impacted  by the storm is unrealistic and will be costlier than relocation.

The [VICS]  need to be removed and brought to SAFE  places where they can survive the aftermath.

Even those reluctant to leave will need to go,[after they exhaust all their strength and resources to attempt to stay] during reconstruction as many communities will not be able to even begin demolition and clean up  for weeks or months.

Starting with the most vulnerable, full busloads of communities  need to be relocated to cities where their lives can be sustained.

Host families need to be sought immediately. During Katrina many people called into teh Red Cross call center and offered spare homes, rooms, furnishings and to take in [vics] for extended periods of time.

The Red Cross instead focused on monetary donations only, The other call ins notes were discarded.

I gathered them and listed them to offer to incoming evacuees and in some instances, was able to match up incoming with local HOSTS and some families obtained immediate housing and jobs so they could rebuild their lives..

Many businesses now can handle much of their business dealings via the internet and alternate office locations.
Other businesses will not be able to maintain their employee work forces  while infrastructure remains inadequate.

People will not be able to afford to continue to drive into work daily while mass transit is out of commission.
The lack of fuel, parking, traffic, time and costs involved just to enable workers to get to their jobs will be too costly and will fail.
MTA will not be able to afford to provide free transportation or adequate services.

The overall  region is ‘broken’ and in order to fix it, will need to be leveled in many places and clean up  of rubble could take 6 months or more.

Utilites will need to be recreated. Damage to gas lines, water lines, electric lines will necessitate total replacement in many area, thus supporting residency during re-constuction will not be feasible.

The subways, tunnels  & electric cant simply  be drained and go back to normal. Time is needed to reinforce and replace all that was ruined by the sea water as well as weaknesses that already existed due to age and maintenance issues. Sure they might drain a tunnel, but then to actually let people resume driving through again on a daily basis is still another recipe for disaster as these will fail at some point, collapses are possible and in some cases probable.

Flood damage for example, is why insurance industry will deem a car a total loss one its been in a flood. The car is taken away and the insured is paid for the loss and then has to get a new car.
The same outline has to apply to tunnels and subways if you want to be realistic about it rather than just clearing the tracks and putting trains back in service.

Winter is soon upon us, cold weather is arriving.

Utilities are not up to the challenge and can not guarantee service for all. No government sanctions, fines, assistance, prodding, can make things be alright.

The Govt itself is not in a position to make things right.

This is more than monumental.

There is no easy solution or magic bullet.

If the people are led to continue to believe they can withstand this and live in an area so devastated, they are all in denial and becoming deluded.

If people are not relocated before the cold weather is here, illnesses arising out of the current living condition will cost 1000s of lives over the coming  winter.

Businesses will not be able to continue operating  with such strained limited resources and the subsequent added expenses pose hardships for employees and employers alike.

Businesses need to be able to set up shop in alternate cities that have infrastructures, at least while the impacted areas rebuild,

Just providing fuel for the region is quickly becoming a failing proposition as even gas tankers are  having difficult time supplying gas stations and Gas companies have to rebuild gas lines to be able to supply homes during the winter.

The EXODUS NEEDS TO BEGIN~!!

Look at how people in the region are already beginning to respond to the shock of what happened to them!!

Day #3 – Anger, despair, looting are already beginning and will escalate as the days pass by and supplies continue in shortages.

People currently in unaffected homes, that are doing better than most, will also begin to feel the economic hardship as fuel & food supplies dwindle.

Those already displaced need immediate help including long term places to live during reconstruction.

Shelters & food relief can not be sustained for a long periods of time, especially when infrastructure remains crippled.

The landscape of New Jersey and other places hard hit, that now need to be leveled, cleared, have infrastructure rebuilt BEFORE  community reconstruction can begin & life can resume for residents.

While most residents want to sift the rubble for momentos, this places their lives and the lives of others at risk. This activity also is emotionally scarring the [VICS] more than they are already harmed. Shock wears off, grief and anger begin.

People need to be moved away from the devastated areas.

Regionally Unattached, professional clean up is necessary for the people as a whole.

 Teams of salvage workers are needed to salvage and remove anything usable or sentimental  to [VICS] and items need to be placed into storage containers and moved to storage facilities with  addresses of where they were salvaged from and names of [VICS] OWNERS that they assume items belong to.
These can be stored at such facilities  til [VICS] obtain reconstruction or relocation of their homes.

Mass cleanup after salvage operations needs to be  done before utilities and infrastructures can be repaired or replaced.

The impacted areas still need to be leveled and cleared in order to be rebuilt the communities.

THIS CAN NOT HAPPEN OVERNIGHT,  NOR IN WEEKS OR IN A COUPLE OF MONTHS AND CAN NOT PROCEED AT AN ACCELERATED PACE DURING THE COMING WINTER MONTHS.

WHY ISNT THE GOVERNMENT TELLING THESE PEOPLE THE TRUTH?

WHY HAVENT the  EXODUS  EVACUATION AND RELOCATION PLANS BEGUN? THESE AREAS CAN NOT SUSTAIN LIVES OF MILLIONS AT THIS POINT. AT BEST THEY CAN BE RE-ESTABLISHED TO MAINTAIN 1000S DURING RECONSTRUCTION.

 IT HAS TO HAPPEN OR WE ARE GOING TO SEE THE DEATH-RATE OF THE EAST COAST THIS WINTER SKYROCKET~!

THE MULTITUDES OF PEOPLE CAN NOT WITHSTAND ANY COMING STORMS, NOR PREPARE FOR IT NOR CAN THE GOVT OR UTILITIES GUARANTEE PROVIDING ADEQUATE HELP.

STAGES IN EXODUS HAVE TO BE PRIORITIZED!

1 – VOLUNTARY – INITIALLY All families that want to leave region need assistance to get them to new cities.
That requires the assistance of the receiving HOST CITIES to provide initial shelter and resources to the refugees.

Faith based initiative  : Host families are needed,  to be sought that can agree to take in individuals or small families and shelter them for a period of time til they can get  jobs and their own homes.

During Katrina, many willing HOST families called into the Red Cross call center,  telling how many people  they could house, some were willing to rent rooms, suites, studios, trailers,vacations homes. Some churches that had habitable church camps  such as in  DUNCANNON, Oklahoma, that were capable of taking in a limited amount of families, offering them available housing and jobs.

Then there were larger quantities of people needing housing which Southern Baptists offered a camp that had occupancy of 5000 for short term settling. Utah’s Mormons also offered housing and reestablishment to many Katrina evacuees.

Real Estate Agencies and city Housing Authorities in many places were willing to waive waiting lists, deposits  and allow evacuees  to move in and either not pay deposits or arrange time payments in order to expedite new residency.

Churches had willing HOST families and additional housing as well as had jobs ready for smaller families willing to relocate to places such as in Duncannon Ok during Katrina aftermath.

Overall it is cheaper , more efficient and safer to relocate and reestablish EVACUEES to  new cities than to try and sustain them in the war zones, during cleanup and reconstruction.

ONLY THOSE WHO CAN ASSIST IN RECONSTRUCTION AND TO HELP MAINTAIN LOCAL GOVERNMENTS, RESTORE INFRASTRUCTURE AND ESSENTIAL SERVICES & BUSINESSES SHOULD BE ENABLED TO REMAIN IN THE REGION, DURING THE RE-CONSTUCTION PERIOD.

ALL OTHERS NEED TO BE RELOCATED.

During Katrina,many had to relocate for months or years before they could return to their homes.
These people have families, children and elderly that need immediate stabilization in order to flourish or remain healthy.

HOST cities have to be willing or compelled to offer Staging Areas.

FEDERAL MANDATES CAN EXPEDITE THIS BY ADDING  INCENTIVES AND OR SANCTIONS FOR CITIES THAT DONT WANT TO COMPLY.

We found that cities that failed to approve STAGING AREAS placed critical limits on the number of refugees they enabled to relocate in their towns. In Lawton Ok a city  council meeting voted down using the armory for staging.

This prevented busloads of evacuees from the football stadium to even stop in Lawton,[AND OTHER CITIES!] even though shelters and host homes were ready to receive the evacuees, staging is mandatory to process the evacuees into shelters and host homes.

In Lawton , 2 shelters had capacities if less than 60 occupants, which was the average number of people per busload. As a result of lack of staging, these people could not be transported to shelters or host homes as it was impossible to deal with the emotional instability of the [VICS]/evacuees.

BUSLOADS  couldn’t stop at any shelter for example and tell the bus that only 10,20,30, or 40 could disembark as it would cause rioting.

Some busloads ended up having to travel all the way to Utah where the people there welcomed them.

Meanwhile the shelters in Lawton could only take in evacuees that made their own way there, such as families that still had cars or those who were able to take public transportation to the city and then contact the local agencies such as the Red Cross to then be admitted into the shelters for further  assistance.

Local Housing Authorities that were HUD & Section 8 subsidized had to be told  that evacuees presented more urgent needs than those on their current waiting lists, which then bypassed local residents in waiting ,who were presumed to already be in alternate housing, enabling evacuees priority in being re-housed in an expedited manner.

The paid staff of the Red Cross was overwhelmed in Lawton as with many other Red Cross agencies across the region.
THEY COULD NOT TAKE THE WEIGHT OF THE DEVASTATION UPON THEIR SHOULDERS.
THE IMPACT OF SANDY IS BEYOND ANY ONE AGENCY OR GOVT.

IT HAS TO BE A ‘SHARED’ IMPACT AND SOLUTIONS HAVE TO BE CREATED THAT CAN WORK WITHIN EXISTING AGENCIES AND GUIDELINES.

During Katrina, the  paid staff went AWOL as many of them became ill from the stress and chaos.

Volunteers were left in charge. I was placed in charge of the shelters as SHELTER MANGER and ran them like domestic violence victims shelters, in order  to be able to find and  provide services in an expedited manner, otherwise not readily  available to homeless individuals.

The current system aid in relocation and reestablishment into new communities for domestic violence victims is the same route that is needed to relocate Hurricane Sandy victims./evacuees/refugees, but on a much larger scale needs a more expedient time scale, realistic time frame.

If this doesnt happen, people will become increasingly desperate and epidemic  illnesses will arise that will cause permanent psychological, emotional, physical damage to individuals and families.

There will be a rise in death rate as people will not be living in healthy environments.

Those particularly vulnerable will be children, elderly and disabled.

EXODUS should address these people immediately.

All ‘non-essential’ residents need to be relocated asap to save lives.

Non-essentials to include :

    Small children/babies -families
    Elderly
    Handicapped
    Retired
    Previously Unemployed

At least 80% of the population must be relocated til recovery is completed.

# 1  Start with the Voluntary~ Within a week many who are currently struggling in hardest hit areas  will be emotionally and physically too exhausted to wnt to continue  living where they are now in shelters or alternate housing.

These also will be easiest to relocate to host cities as they will pose least economic stress  or impact on host cities.Integration will be  easier as well.

These families.individuals will actually boost the local  economies as they will be paying rent, food and fuel.

TV ADS SEEKING HOST FAMILIES NEED TO BE MADE WITH A HOTLINE AND WEBSITE PAGE FOR POTENTIAL HOST FAMILIES, HOST CHURCHES, HOST COMMUNITIES TO REGISTER,THROUGH FEMA~  FEMA CAN COMPILE LISTS OF POTENTIAL HOST FAMILIES WITH THEIR REQUIREMENTS AND WHAT THEY HAVE AVAILABLE.

FEMA CAN CROSS REFERENCE WHAT IS AVAILABLE  TO THOSE WHO APPLY FOR ASSISTANCE AND NOTIFY THOSE NEEDING ASSISTANCE WHERE THEY CAN BE RELOCATED TO,UNTIL RECONSTRUCTION IS COMPLETED.

More HOST families are willing to help elderly , handicapped and small children as they pose lowest economic impact threat to their current lifestyles and cities offer them additional income for hosting, which can be administered through loCal CAO offices in the same manner as for migrant farm workers.

Incentives: HOST cities, families/providers can be offered tax credits , rebates and or grant subsidies for assisting refugees/evacuees. This can be written and directed under current  act which was initiated by GW Bush’s “Faith Based Initiatives”,who can receive applications and oversee  grant dispursements .

State & Federal Level assistance programs [CAO] in receiving cities  can be addressed through current framework already in place for
“Migrant Farm Workers” which is meant to assist transient families with government financial assistance that includes food stamps and medicaid as well as rental assistance.
This already in place facet of the current state CAOs can be assigned to assisting [VICS] financially,medically and food stamps,  at the federal and state levels using this current system.
A waiver of residency can be issued to those who have permanent homes in the impacted region.

Disaster Block grants can be initiated and administered by FEMA which should be directed at a community level that does salvage, cleanup and reconstruction of infrastructure of land, which will prepare the way for rebuilding and also storage of salvaged items to be redeemed by those impacted once they are re-homed,

Insurance companies  need to approach in a collaborative and collective manner pertaining to overall reconstruction.
The undertaking is so monumental that many insurance companies will have to borrow in order to process the amount of claims for loss. Making cooperative efforts for reconstruction will expedite reconstruction and be more cost effective.

It would be cost effective to rebuild communities such as developments seen out west in Phoenix.
Plans of course would need to be modified by

    . New surveys of property ownership lines and then coordinated with community approved architectural  reconstruction plans.
      Sizes of previous homes also need to be noted in determining how many house plans needs to be created , such as # of bedrooms, # of bathrooms,
      Handicap accessibility where needed and so on.

This approach will expedite reconstruction in an organized manner that can be overseen and building codes enforced during reconstruction to address future regional weather related needs.

Costs exceeding the ability of the Insurance Industry necessitate a bond issue for low-term low cost  loans  to be administered by HDA, HUD  and FEMA  in joint  cooperation.
Grants for  income eligible  home owners can be applied to offset infrastructure and home building repairs.

Income eligible people who have suffered total loss but hadnt sufficient insurance to cover reconstruction and replacement of their homes and who may not be able to afford their determined share of the process, should be able to choose to sell their home lot/property to the ‘community’ developer at fair pre-storm value and be free to relocate where they choose to.

 Approaching the sheer volume of basic needs to be met for those impacted by Hurricane Sandy would be more cost effective and rise to meet the immediate and long term needs of the people during the reconstruction period, which in all likelihood can last 1 or more years to complete.

I can further expound on how to implement and mandate inter agency and inter govt programs to facilitate relocation that would enable reconstruction.

They struggled down the smoke filled stairs~ they lept to their deaths ~ they died saving others~ they shall not be forgotten ~ 9/11


There is a saying about not looking at the roaring lion, but at the ones
crouching in the grass.The roaring lion is the one who is distracting
the prey while his pride goes out and captures & brings down the
prey.They bring it back to the roaring lion who then takes the kings
portion and then they devour whats left.

I worked at the WTC in the 80’s and have family members & former
school mates that worked there up til 9/11 I remember the fire drills
and bomb drills we had where we would have to walk down the stairs from
the 96th floor where I worked, to the mezzanine at the 78th floor, where
we would wait for the all clear announcement that we could go back to
work, or if we had to leave the building.

The stairs were short steps so I would hang on tight to the stair rail
to be careful not to fall. Walking downstairs after a dozen flights or
so becomes rhythmatic but starts to give a cardio workout. As I would
descend, like others, would think it was just a drill but wonder what if
this was the real thing?

I remember my office overlooking the south seeing Staten Island, the
Statue of Liberty and the Newark Airport. Even back then when looking at
planes coming and going from the airport, watching them at altitudes
below me.The building used to sway in the wind, 6 ft in every direction.

On windy days, the swaying of the building would make me queezy as it
swayed on its 4 large sub-basement springs.I wondered about fires and
planes, most did at some point or another.

I remember 9/11 as I was in a Pennsylvania hospital recovering from
surgery. Breakfast was brought to me and I turned on the TV to see a
view of 1WTC with smoke coming out. It was unclear as to the cause at
the moment as it was caught on video from the direction of Staten
Island. My heart ached.

I remember the 94 WTC bombing where my youngest brother, John Cosgriff, a
new policeman in the NYPD , on the job for about a week, was stationed
by the WTC and that my niece worked there as well.

As my brother approached the WTC, he saw a man, badly burned running
from the smoke filled garage of 2WTC. He called backup for help and ran
into the burning building, helping victims to come out of it. He
continued battling the smoke and went up the stairwells as they were
filling with black acrid smok. His flashlight beamed no further than 14
inches before his face since the smoke was so thick. He told people to
hold hands as he led them down a dozen flight of stairs, out to safety
as other rescue workers arrived on scene. He suffered smoke inhalation
as he kept going back in to rescue more people. He was later featured on
the cover of Newsweek and received a hero’s award from the city

Now it was 9/11/01, 7 years later as I watched on TV from my hospital
bed. Was he in the building this time ? Was my niece still working in
the building? I got on the phone and called NYC – all phone lines were
down. I stared at the TV and a second plane came and watched it as in
slow motion, pierce the northwest wall of the upper floors of 2 WTC and
then it was clear.

We were under attack~ I began to cry, seeing those stairwells in my mind
from years before. Seeing the crowds trying to rush down the stairs in
that thick black smoke, as others in non smoke filled stairways were
wondering if it was another drill or if it was for real, knowing that
only those on the floors that were hit would know what was happening ~
that there was a real fire and that those who were on the floors where
the plane pierced the building, would have seen as they died.
Announcements were being made for people not to panic, some even thought
it was just a drill so they waited too long to leave their offices.

I could hear their screams when they encountered crumbled floors and
smoke filled halls, echoing in my mind, as I wept. The phones still were
off line, as they remained offline for the rest of the day. I couldnt
even get through to any of my family on Staten Island, so didnt know if
more planes were crashing.

Then the Pentagon was also hit. Then they announced Flight 93 was
hijacked. I know the military was scrambling as our nation was under
attack. It was so surreal as I lay there in my hospital bed, worrying
about those in the WTC that were fighting for their lives and watching
in horror as some jumped to their deaths.

The flames grew, the ground was smoke filled. People were running from
the buildings with blackened faces, gasping for fresh air. My brother in
law John, a firefighter stationed in lower Manhattan was there as he
worked stationed in lower Manhattan.. My brother Chris, another NYFD
captain, was on the other side of the Brooklyn Bridge at headquarters
when it occurred.

He and his men put on their gear and ran across the Brooklyn Bridge
against the tide of panicking people, who were making their exodus from
Manhattan, fleeing for their lives. Running against this overwhelming
tide of people hindered getting to the scene, but may have saved his
life.

By the time the time he and his men arrived, along with hundreds of
other firefighters, who had already arrived were in the building helping
evacuate the people from within, they began doing what NYFD does,
saving lives and fighting fires. This was different though. It was of an
enormous scale.

My brother was outside the building when it began to collapse. My
brother in law had been on another fire call up town when it happened
and was also now en route to the WTC. My youngest brother John of the
NYPD was on the Staten Island Ferry on his way into work. He was told
only the night before that it was his turn to come in late as they had
staggered work hours, so he was an hour later than usual. Others in his
unit were killed as the towers crumbled.

As people desperately began to jump off the building as the flames grew
and they couldnt be saved, their bodies began hitting the pavement and
those on the ground with all t he smoke became targets of living
missiles. A priest who hung out at the fire halll my brother in law
works at, was struck by a victim who had jumped to their death, killing
him as well.

As the first building collapsed, an inverted cloud of smoke and ash
flooded the streets and was choking those who were fortunate enough to
escape. Firefighters continued to work pushing through the smoke and
debris as they rushed to save more of the people trying to flee from the
second building before its collapse.

The 2nd buidling came down faster than the first. After the thundering
roar and the inverted plume of smoke that flooded the streets
surrounding the WTC complex, a white ash covered everything. There was a
surreal silence met with a strange tweaking sound like mechanical
birds. The tweaking was shrill and constant. It was the autoresponders
on each of the firemen who were trapped and crushed during the collapse.
Every tweak was sounding off from each of the more than 340 firemen
that died that hour along with numerous civiilians, police and rescue
workers that died so valiantly trying to rescue the victims of the
attack.

More than 50,000 people worked in the WTC and estimates of how many were
killed was initially upwards of 10,000 and miraculously later with
accounts made was reduced to just under 3,000. That means those rescue
workers efforts saved up to 7,000 people that day~!!

How can America or the world forget? How can any elected official even
consider allowing the placement of a mosque near Ground Zero?? How can
moderate muslims continue following allah and their imans who support
acts of terrorism? How can we as a nation elect someone whose national
birthplace is still a mystery? How can more than 400,000 Texans decide
to convert to islam after 9/11 ? How can Dearborn Michigan become like
the new western Mecca? How can a Buffalo muslim radio station owner
enforce Sharia Law and murder his wife because she wanted a divorce? How
can it be that America is such an entertainment oriented society that
our youth have basically spent the last several years becoming more
apathetic and gullible and self serving that they profess not to care
about what is going on in Washington and are convinced they cant make a
difference when Obama was able to rally students and liberals to vote
him in allow him to ascend to power?

While islamic jihadists may be the minority in the muslim religion and
while there are many good decent muslim moderates in the world, their
religion is controlled by hate for Jews, hate for Christians, hate for
the West and hate for all who are not muslim.

This is a war without borders.This is an imperialistic religous war to
conquer the world. It has been waged since Abraham cast out Ishmael and
it will continue to the end of time. Now this imperialistic enemy
officially declared war on America, hitting what is considered to be the
god of America, our financial empire~ thus they hit the WTC – twice –
in 94 and now in 2001.

These jihadists have been doing their terrorism for centuries and are
the ‘religious zealots’ of islam~

They have leighway in how they go about interpreting the laws of islam.
They get validation from imans who bless their efforts in killing the infidels
they encounter.

They are encouraged to use any means necessary to further their agenda
for world domination.That means they will lie cheat steal deceive and do anything
conceivable to defeat those they consider to be enemies.they will say
‘allah is love’ which is not true~ allah is a demonic entity that hates
human life and hates God. They gain ground among those who are agnostic
and those who are against western religions for various reasons. They gain
ground among the apathetic and disillusioned in society, as well as among
the oppressed and the poor.Its not that they care for any of these, but they strive’
to gain temporary allegiances with the disgruntled in their host nations.

The demonic entity known as allah wants to be god and claims to be god and
so those who serve allah experience an soulful sense of satisfaction
when killing the infidel or any who break Sharia law.

They are fully persuaded and are convinced that they are serving allah and
that allah is the god of the universe.They feel justified in what they do.

They are deluded and deceived and most dangerous, since they hold no
value over human life as evidenced by how wantonly they kill even their own
and are willing to die for allah to them, is their ultimate
sacrifice – to which they believe they will receive heavenly rewards.

Jihadists dont fear dying and are motivated to kill as many they
consider to be infidels that that can kill. They have been doing it worldwide for
centuries and focused on 3rd world countries for centuries. They cultivated
relationships with England and the US to educate them in Western ways.
They traded oil leases and development rights and formed alliances with the
rich in many nations so that they could work towards gaining political power.

This is why they can not be totally stopped or reasoned with.
They have many allies underground worldwide.

They will pay lip service publicly only whilethe they dont yet have the power need
to be in full control of the lands they occupy. They are growing and there are over
1.5 billion of them worldwide as they increase their numbers and gain allegiances.

They have learned western ways and while they despise us they are using our own
laws to conquer us from within. They have overrun Europe and England,now that they
have secured presence in the middle east and far east. the methods they are using
are working as they gain political power whereever they go by manipulating and
empowering the poor of each nation to side with them against the ruling powers.

By utilizing socialist reforms in the nations they occupy they set the stage for
their eventual takeover of nations.They will stop at nothing less than world domination!

Once given mutual rights with each nation’s hosting infidels,
they then continue on to effect the sublte changes needed
that will enable them to gain an upper hand, such as using
national laws to gain entry that then gives them the foothold they need
in order to conquer their enemies from within as well as without.

Wars and terrorism are the smokescreen, the roaring lion they use. Then while
a nation’s resources are focused on dealing with the roaring lion, they have
their pride of lions in the grass, infiltrating and herding the public to the
position they want them into so they can strike~

Less than a year before 9/11/01, I was back visiting in NYC at a family
reunion and brought my grown children and grandchildren to the WTC as I
was showing them the city. WE walked through the undergroundWTC mall
from building to building and considered going to the top. It was $13 a
ticket at the time. I had brought them there when they were younger, but
since our group Sept 2000, as no one expected that a year later it
would all be gone.

The aftermath of 9./11 will never escape me nor lessen its impact. How
it has lessened in impact for others is beyond me. This is a war on
terrorism and it has hit our shores, but goes on daily around the world.

I am not against he muslim people.

They are born into their national religion just
as everyone is born into their own.

They dont know any better.Many feel trapped within it since to renounce islam
invites a death sentence through Sharia law.

I am against the demon they serve, who lurks in the shadows
enraging the hearts of the jiahadists to kill through terrorism.

I am not fooled by their Qu’uran that cloaks its words with inuendo and
lies.

It is the true islamic’s goal and purpose in life to dominate the world
and eradicate their opposition, all others that dont become part of them.

They are a parasitic wandering international society and a global threat.

They are dispersed world wide settling in other nations and have been
intermingling with infidel nations of people [converting them to islam] to
gain acceptance and political clout~
They become part of the nations they intend to
conquer but reject everything that nation represents..

They use their own muslim people as sacrifices to effect a shield for
themselves as they plan and plot their moves over the course of generations.
Any of their own people that convert to other religions or just want to
reject islam, become targets of retribution by Sharia Law, they become
like the infidels and are rejected by their families, communities and nation.

Islamic jihadits will destroy and do kill their own just as fast as
they kill those they consider infidels, any who oppose them.

They use their ‘moderate’ members, as a buffer to gain acceptance while the
ones in control, the jihadists are encouraged and sponsored by their
imans, who run the mosques and collect the donated money from the
moderates in order to fund more terrorism.

So to put a mosque up at or near Ground Zero is, in itself another
attack on the WTC~ and the USA!

Communities where they propagate, they increase in population and then
form gangs that keep pushing others out of the community so that they
can control the section of each city or town they occupy. They claim the
area and put up a mosque~ which becomes their headquarters and a symbol
of their victory over those they consider to be their enemies.

Anyone who is not one of them, is an enemy.
Anyone that doesnt obey Sharia Law is an enemy .
Anyone who is not one of them is in danger.

Now as we approach 9/11/11 , 9 years after their devoted jihadists
sacrificed their lives to allah and blew up the WTC, Pentagon and were
responsible for Flight 93 being shot down, have declared victory over
the US since while we were occupied focusing on the wars in Iraq &
Afghanistan, they have been busy funding propaganda within the US ,
brainwashing youth and liberals, put a blood muslim into the Presidency
who is lobbying for the muslim cause, by socializing America and
bankrupting the government.

We have a chance to save America and need to beat them at their own
game.

We need to clean up our own government~!
We need representatives in office that will protect our national interests and
our free American lifestyle.
Too long corruption has been rampant in government.Now it threatens
our very way of life in America and the US as a nation is in peril of being
financially ruined and forced into socialism which will break our standing
in the world and reduce us to a 3rd world power. Once this happens America
will no longer be the home of the free, but be subjugated by the islamic world.

We need to educate and wake up America and vote out all those who
are influenced by their islamic roots or deceived by the message of
islam into being complacent and letting islam’s foothold to grow here in
America, as they plan on populating and gaining footholds in politics
and counting on American apathy to vote them into office and turn
America into a socialist regime, which they then can introduce Sharia
Law to become the new law in America and worldwide.

America is still great, but the current government is weakening us as a nation.
We need to instill a sense of patriotism in our youth and elect officials that will
serve the people and ideals that America was founded on.

We need to end apathy and get involved in saving our own nation from the
enemies now within our borders. Our laws should first and foremost protect
our nation and our way of life and not become the enablements for foreign
powers to come in and take over and destroy our way of life.

America may not be perfect but it is the best nation on earth and now is
a target of those who hate us and are jealous of us and of the God we choose
to serve. Islam hates the Christian, the Jew, along with all other religions and
lifestyles. They kill those they consider to be less moral than they hypocritically
claim to be. Its happening in Europe and now its infiltrating our borders.

America needs to wake up. We need politicians like Sarah Palin who are
intelligent , sensible and not easily fooled.
