As Europe continues to complain about President Trump’s sanctions on terrorist supporting Iran, it is important to point out their failure to learn from the past. At the same time, they are pushing back against the sanctions and supporting a deal that gave Iran the funds to support terror, fifteen families, indeed an entire nation is mourning a horrible terrorist attack that happened a few weeks before 9/11/01.
Seventeen years ago on August 9th, 2001 Palestinian terrorists blew up a pizza place in the heart of Jerusalem killing 15 people including seven children and a pregnant woman. They wounded 130. A month later, other Islamist terrorists blew up the World Trade Centers in NY, the Pentagon Building in Washington DC, and were foiled in their attempt to destroy the Capital building by the brave passengers of Flight 93.
It is important to remember these acts, not merely to memorialize the innocent victims whose only crime was to be at the wrong place at the wrong time, but as a reminder that Europe’s rejection of President Trump’s actions prove terrorism is still suckling at the teat of political correctness and Western World appeasement.
