Before reading on, I want to make a special note in tribute to my late Father, Israel (Eddy) Galganov, who was born in Montreal on this day (August 31) in 1918.
My dad was the epitome of what a son born to immigrant parents should be.
He grew up to be a Canadian, not a hyphenated Canadian. He was a Canadian who grew up to fight bravely and proudly for his country during all of WWII, winning great distinctions and awards for Bravery ABOVE and BEYOND the call of DUTY.
My dad asked for nothing from his country other than to live in FREEDOM, and to be allowed a fair shot at doing the best he could without the government getting in his face.
He worked hard. He struggled. He raised his family well. And he contributed in his own very generous way, to the benefit of his community and Synagogue.
And he NEVER saw a person beyond his or her character . . . in spite of race, gender or religion. And he NEVER HAD HIS HAND OUT.
I am “telling” you this, because my dad would be aghast at what our North American Society has become.
Anne and I visited the cemetery to HONOR my dad on what would have been his 95th Birthday if he were alive today.
I visit the cemetery quite often to pay my respects to both of my incredible parents, and each time I go, my memory of them gives me strength to carry-on, because, if I did not do the things that I do, and if I just stood on the sidelines watching as the world falls apart, it would be the ultimate insult to their memory.
And I think they would be very disappointed in me.
IT’S TIME TO STAND UP TO ISLAM:
There are all kinds of rumors making the rounds on the Internet about the TWO MILLION Moslem March scheduled for this coming 9/11 in Washington DC, for the Moslems to PROTEST the way they’re treated in America.
HERE ARE SEVERAL OF MY POINTS:
1 – The Moslems can thank the unbelievable kindness of the American people who are not Moslems, that Mosques and Islamic Community Centers haven’t been burned to the ground by now, not just because of 9/11/01, but for every indignity and assault that has been foisted upon the America people in the name of Islam.
2 – Every time we board a plane, thank a Moslem because of the delays, intrusive searches and extra costs all travelers are subjected to because of Islam’s religion of “PEACE”.
3 – Every time we go to a sporting event, also thank a Moslem for all of that extra security NEEDED – that has forever changed the innocence of America.
4 – And we can thank all the Moslems everywhere for the TENS OF THOUSANDS of murdered Americans, Canadians, Brits and other members of the military who’ve been at war because of Islam.
AND NOW THEY WANT TO HOLD A DEMONSTRATION . . . on the HORRIBLE MEMORY of their own making on 9/11/01, because they somehow feel INSULTED by the way they are treated in America.
HOW MANY MOSLEMS WILL SHOW UP IN DC ON 9/11?
If there will be as many as 1000 Moslems marching in DC this coming 9/11, to protest against the way they are treated, I will be very much surprised.
As a matter of fact, I will be shocked, since the ONLY thing American Moslems MIGHT have to complain about, is that in the context of FREE STUFF coming from the American People through America’s LEFTIST government, they have to compete with other Parasites in America to get what Obama terms as their “FAIR-SHARE”.
BUT WHAT ABOUT THE SUPPOSED TWO MILLION BIKERS IN DC?
THAT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN . . . As it turns out, there seems to have never been any REAL organized event, other than someone on Facebook shooting his mouth off.
But – There are BIKER groups who are indeed planning to come to Washington DC to pay their RESPECTS to the real VICTIMS of 9/11/01. It’s just that there is no one really organizing anything.
BUT THAT’S OK.
I’ve been in touch with a Maryland Harley Davidson Dealer, which will be making their parking lot available as a staging point for their EVENT. The BIKERS, who will be there, will pay a moments silence at the appropriate time and then they will begin their RIDE.
But their RIDE will be from the Maryland Harley Davidson Dealership to their Washington DC Harley Davidson Dealership, which will be very impressive, if what you want to see are as many as a thousand to a few thousand BIKERS going from one dealership to another.
I GUESS THAT’S BETTER THAN NOTHING – BUT IT’S NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME.
MY PURPOSE IS CLEAR . . . As one of the Organizers and the FOUNDER of the PLEDGE RIDERS, my interest is in making a CLEAR STATEMENT in MEMORY of all the people who’ve lost their lives to Islam on 9/11/01 to date . . .
THE BATTLE CRY OF THE PLEDGE RIDERS IS CLEAR – NEVER AGAIN.
Unless something really drastic changes with any kind of BIKER organization, which I sincerely doubt, this is what we, the PLEDGE RIDERS intend to do. And anyone who wishes to join us are more than welcomed.
1 – The Pledge Riders, whether many or few in numbers will meet at the La Quinta Hotel in Manassas Virginia. Reservations from as far to the North as North Eastern Canada, to as far to the South as Texas have been made.
Pastor Gary Burd of the M25 and I will be Leading The Charge.
2 – We will ride to the Washington Monument to be there by 08:15 on 9/11.
3 – When we arrive at the Monument, if need be, we will PARK our BIKES nearby.
4 – We are bringing THREE FLAGS with us for all to see. The STARS & STRIPES – The Israeli Flag – The Canadian FLAG.
We will also be bringing a very impressive 21” X 4’ Vinyl Banner that was SPECIFICALLY commissioned for this MEMORIAL.
5 – At 08:30 we will raise our flags and present our PLEDGE RIDER 9/11 Memorial Banner.
6 – At 08:45 we will lower our flags and observe a moment of silence as we listen to TAPS in Memory and HONOR to those who perished in the FIRST Attack on the North Tower.
7 – At 09:03 we will once again lower our flags and observe another moment of silence as we listen to TAPS in Memory and HONOR to those who perished in the SECOND Attack, this time on the South Tower.
8 – At 09:37 we will once again lower our flags and observe another moment of silence as we listen to TAPS in Memory and HONOR to those who perished in the THIRD Attack, this time on the Pentagon.
7 – At 10:03 we will once again lower our flags and observe another moment of silence as we listen to TAPS in Memory and HONOR to those who perished in the FORTH Attack, where BRAVE Patriots brought the plane down in Shanksville Pennsylvania, before the Moslems could target yet another critical American Institution.
8 – Just after 10:30, we will bring our Flags and our Banner to the White House so they too can see the resolve of the people in the meaning of NEVER AGAIN.
PLEASE FOREWORD THIS EDITORIAL TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
PS – Someone had recently asked me a very serious question because he is really concerned: “What if the Moslems become aggressive to you and your RIDERS”?
To which I answered in all sincerity . . . “WE CAN ONLY HOPE THEY DO”.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
