America’s Truth Forum intends to host its third in a national series of educational symposiums October 26 through 28 in the Midwest. The event, by design, will not only prove to be intellectually controversial, but should serve as a catalyst to awaken our citizenry and generate much-needed media coverage. Due to security protocol, the exact location of the venue will not be disclosed for several more weeks.
As you know, America’s Truth Forum, in conjunction with Basics Project, is engaged in the production of a first-of-its-kind national educational symposium series that addresses the threat of global terrorism. This series provides attendees with the opportunity to gather first-hand, fact-based knowledge from internationally renowned counter-terrorism experts, researchers, authors and operatives. This national symposium series provides in-depth examination of the ideological and theoretical aspects of this most critical issue, as well as real-time, intellectual, non-political information on current events and strategies used in the battle against an advancing Islamofascist agenda.
In 2006, America’s Truth Forum and Basics Project produced two critically acclaimed symposiums on the underlying roots of the current terrorist threat to the United States, specifically, the threat posed by radical Islamists utilizing terrorism as their weapon of choice. Those attending these two ground-breaking events heard from among seventeen speakers, including: former CIA Director James Woolsey, David Horowitz, Robert Spencer, Dr. Harvey Kushner, Dr. Paul Williams, Wafa Sultan, Dr. Whalid Phares,…Kenneth Timmerman (Nobel Prize nominee), Dr. Bruce Tefft, Joe Kaufman, Laura Mansfield, and Jim Gilchrist, to name but a few.
These events were attended by representatives from government agencies, the military, law enforcement, the counter-terrorism community, the first responder community and the general public. The critique from everyone who attended was overwhelmingly positive.
We have assembled many of the same panel of globally recognized, counter-terrorism experts, and have added a few more. Many have appeared as counter-terrorism experts on a variety of news channel talk shows and each is published on the subject, some numerous times. Their areas of expertise range from having provided counter-terrorism training to those in our government to having seen the horrors of radical Islamist terror first hand.
Apathy and political correctness have proven to be our worst enemies. Few of our fellow citizens realize what is at stake. Clearly, the freedoms that we all hold as sacrosanct are threatened and our country — as well as the legacy we will leave our children and our children’s children — is under siege. We simply cannot afford to turn a blind eye to this looming danger. If we fail to take the appropriate actions now, the next generations — our children — will be left to carry on the battle against and even stronger and more dedicated foe, an evil whose flame we failed to extinguish. Our legacy should be one of bravely confronting our adversaries, of diligently defending what is rightfully ours. Our actions need to serve as motivating examples for future generations, instilling in them the proclivity to stand resolute in the face of evil.
The national symposium series produced by America’s Truth Forum and Basics Project facilitates not only the education of the public and the private sectors, but it also affords a forum in which the participating counter-terrorism experts can exchange ideas, develop theories and formulate solutions they can then advance to our government and the defenders of freedom throughout the world.
In order to facilitate these advancements we need your financial support in underwriting the October event. Your continued support of our initiative will enable us to facilitate fact-based and realistic solutions over rhetoric.
Let us not forget, the onus of responsibility for the dissemination of accurate and truthful information regarding this looming danger has fallen on our shoulders. It has become the civic responsibility of We the People. It has become a duty of vigilance, demanded by the spirit of our Founders, in defense of our nation. We owe it to the millions of brave souls that made the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf — our Nation’s finest who paid with their lives so we could live free.
