The Democratic Party Convention has reminded us of the threats we face at home to the Judeo-Christian values on which America was founded and has prospered. The DNC’s platform blatantly promoted abortion and same-gender “marriage”, and its line-up of speakers reinforced those attacks on these core values.
However, even as we battle to defend these values, we are keenly aware of other threats from abroad that are also infiltrating our institutions at home. Last September 11 we commemorated the 10th anniversary of the tragic attacks on the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and the hijacking and then crash of Flt. 93 in Pennsylvania.
We are re-airing the TV program we recorded at that time because we must never forget the 3,000 innocent victims of those attacks or the pain and suffering that their families still endure. Beyond that, however, it is also critically important that we confront and defeat those who were behind those and many other attacks. To that end, our program focuses on three questions:
To help answer these questions, we invited national security expert Michael del Rosso to join us for a special examination of the Islamic doctrine and Shariah law that have driven men to kill innocent people for over 1400 years -- and who continue to do so today.
We will also expose Islamic organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood that are expanding their influence abroad as well as inside the United States. Their goals contradict American values, their actions undermine our Constitution, and by their own words, they seek global domination through both violent and non-violent jihad. We will learn what the Obama administration is doing, or not doing, to confront and defeat those who are leading these attacks.
