Be still and know that I am God:

imagePeople should remember forever yesterday’s 10th anniversary of 9/11.  The tenth anniversary was the first one that saw banned from Ground Zero, clerics and first responders; authorities who controlled the event ordered all speakers to refrain from the use of the name “al Qaeda”.  Without Aaron I. Reichel Esq., a member of the Federal and State Bars in New York and New Jersey, author of Fahrenheit 9-12—rebuttal to Fahrenheit 9/11, and CFP columnist who was tuned in on radio for the anniversary events, we may have never known that yesterday was the day when President Barack Obama seized the opportunity through the reading of Psalm 46 to proclaim, as many of his followers seem to believe, “I am God”.

These are the immortal words of Psalm 46 that Obama used to project on the world screen that he is God:

Psalm 46

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.
The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.
The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth.
He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

People who just wanted to mourn the death of the innocents on site in Manhattan or via watching televised events took heart when the nominally Jewish mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg,  announced that Presidents Obama and Bush would not be speaking at the 10th anniversary gathering.   This was so that the majority of Americans who cringe at the sound of a speech by one or the other of these presidents would not have to endure a speech by either.

Then at the ceremony itself, Obama did indeed come forward to speak, although instead of reading from a TelePrompter as he usually does in his major addresses, he read from the Old Testament.  The Psalm he read, Psalm 46 refers to “the God of Jacob” twice, diverting attention from Barack Hussein Obama’s Muslim connections and multiple subtle and overt philo-Islamic gestures (not that there is anything wrong with that, when fairly balanced), on the occasion of the multiple calamities caused by Muslims, and gave Obama an opportunity to boldly proclaim, “I am God.” 

As  Reichel points out: “Members of the clergy were not permitted to speak at the ceremony, but one of the most politically partisan and unpopular presidents of our time was permitted to speak not just in the name of God but to declare that he IS God!  How many other U.S. presidents, let alone monarchs governing by “divine right” or by any other mandate, have declared on international television and radio in a ceremony widely watched and heard around the world, “I am God?”“

The bizarre contradictions of yesterday’s ceremony at Ground Zero in Manhattan seemed to pave the way for the Obama proclamation.  The true heroes of the day, the “first responders”, firefighters and police officers who risked their lives and their health on the “original” 9/11 when the fully populated World Trade Center Towers were caused to collapse upon being hit by planes hijacked by Islamic terrorists, were prohibited from being present.  

Were they kept away so there would be no expression of outrage when Obama stepped forward as God?

Meanwhile classic political opportunism by a re-election bound, undocumented president marred the most important anniversary of September 11, 2001 of our lifetime.

In almost three years we still don’t know who Obama is. But for certain he is not God.
