In an article entitled "Islam vs. the West: Is This Another Crusade," John Sharpe (who appeared as a guest speaker at the 2008 Saint Benedict Center Conference in Nashua, New Hampshire), has this to say:
"The current and historical mortal enemy of Christian civilization is Judeo-Masonry. There can be no doubt about this fact from an analysis [of] history, both recent, and that which dates from the time of Our Lord. Islam is a sideshow, albeit a powerful and vigorous one, to the main drama. It has been a tool of Jewry and may in fact be so in this case."
Islam is a tool of "Jewry"? Sharpe goes on to suggest that:
"There is nothing to suggest that bin Laden, assuming he is the guilty party – or whoever is responsible for the attacks of 9-11 – considered the attacks to be an assault on the West, insofar as it is the uniquely Christian West...
As we’ve said here before, even the most superficial analysis of the targets of the attacks would suggest that the U.S.-dominated world political and financial order was the object of attack. Hardly strongholds of Christianity...
In truth, there is no longer a Christian West to attack. To suggest that the US of A is the last bastion of Christian civilization is a sad mockery of the truth. It has been a greater Israel for many years; the rise of Hollywood, Wall Street, the Fed, and Roosevelt’s State and Treasury departments assured that."
In other words, for John Sharpe, the United States was attacked by Islamic terrorists because it is simply "a greater Israel," an extension of the State of Israel.
Mr. Philip Lawler, author of The Faithful Departed, also attended the Saint Benedict Center Conference as a guest speaker. Where does he stand on the 911 attacks? Does he agree with Mr. Sharpe that Islam is a "tool of Jewry"? Why has he not publically distanced himself from the Saint Benedict Center? Does Mr. Lawler believe, as "Brother" Andre Marie has asserted, that the Jewish People "undermine public morality"?
Why the silence?
