Know Thy Enemy

How can you win if you don't  know your enemy? Perhaps a better question for today's America is "How can you fight if you don't understand that you have an enemy? " 

There is a classic American tale where a rabbit is cornered by a fox. Rabbit, clever critter that he is begs Fox not to throw him into the nearby brier patch. "Eat me, beat me, do what you will but please, please don't throw me into the brier patch." Fox, having been distracted by this fear of the rabbit's from his real goal -which was of course to eat Rabbit - decides that it would be more satisfying to give Rabbit over to his greatest fears than to eat him. 

Now those who happen to be familiar with this folk tale know that Rabbit was not at all afraid of being thrown into the brier patch, but rather wanted very much to be thrown into the brier patch  to escape from Fox. Rabbit knew his enemy. Fox did not. 

Our self declared enemy, from the founding of this nation, is islam. (And no, I will not give it the courtesy of capitalization - it's not a typo, it is on purpose.) It has been the enemy of civilized people since it's inception. If you haven't been paying attention, if you have been too busy since 9/11/01 gave this generation it's wake-up call, then this month's 9/11 attack is your chance to remedy that oversight. 

Join us on Wednesday's show as we talk with Dr. Bill Warner, a scientist and historian who took the attack on the Twin towers to heart and is doing his best to help the rest of us to know our enemy - before it's too late. 

"An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him."
~ Proverbs 17:10-12
