Apology for 9/11-FMCAT-Muslims against Terrorism))))

We are so Sorry for 9-11

September 11, 2004

By Kamal Nawash

This September 11 marks the third unforgettable anniversary of the worst mass murder in American history.

After September 11 attacks, many in the Muslim world chose denial and hallucination rather than face up to the sad fact that Muslims perpetrated the 9-11 terrorist acts and that we have an enormous problem with extremism and support for terrorism. Many Muslims, including religious leaders, and intellectuals blamed 9-11 on a Jewish conspiracy and went as far as fabricating a tale that 4000 Jews did not show up for work in the World Trade Center on 9-11. Yet others blamed 9-11 on an American right wing conspiracy or the U.S. Government which allegedly wanted an excuse to invade Iraq and steal Iraqi oil.

After numerous admissions of guilt by Bin Laden and numerous corroborating admissions by captured top level Al-Qaida operatives, we wonder, does the Muslim leadership have the dignity and courage to apologize for 9-11? If not 9-11, will we apologize for the murder of school children in Russia? If not Russia, will we apologize for the train bombings in Madrid, Spain? If not Spain, will we apologize for suicide bombings in buses, restaurants and other public places? If not suicide bombings, will we apologize for the barbaric beheadings of human beings? If not beheadings, will we apologize for the rape and murder of thousands of innocent people in Darfour? If not Darfour, will we apologize for the blowing up of two Russian planes by Muslim women? What will we apologize for? What will it take for Muslims to realize that those who commit mass murder in the name of Islam are not just a few fringe elements? What will it take for Muslims to realize that we are facing a crisis that is more deadly than the Aids epidemic? What will it take for Muslims to realize that there is a large evil movement that is turning what was a peaceful religion into a cult?

Will Muslims wake up before it is too late? Or will we continue blaming the Jews and an imaginary Jewish conspiracy? The blaming of all Muslim problems on Jews is a cancer that is destroying Muslim society from within and it must stop.

Muslims must look inward and put a stop to many of our religious leaders who spend most of their sermons teaching hatred, intolerance and violent jihad. We should not be afraid to admit that as Muslims we have a problem with violent extremism. We should not be afraid to admit that so many of our religious leaders belong behind bars and not behind a pulpit. Only moderate Muslims can challenge and defeat extremist Muslims. We can no longer afford to be silent. If we remain silent to the extremism within our community then we should not expect anyone to listen to us when we complain of stereotyping and discrimination by non-Muslims; we should not be surprised when the world treats all of us as terrorists; we should not be surprised when we are profiled at airports. Simply put, not only do Muslims need to join the war against terror, we need to take the lead in this war.

As to apologizing, we will no longer wait for our religious leaders and intellectuals to do the right thing. Instead, we will start by apologizing for 9-11. We are so sorry that 3000 people were murdered in our name. We will never forget the sight of people jumping from two of the highest buildings in the world hoping against hope that if they moved their arms fast enough that they may fly and survive a certain death from burning. We are sorry for blaming 9-11 on a Jewish or right wing conspiracy. We are so sorry for the murder of more than three hundred school children and adults in Russia. We are so sorry for the murder of train passengers in Spain. We are so sorry for all the victims of suicide bombings. We are so sorry for the beheadings, abductions, rapes, violent Jihad and all the atrocities committed by Muslims around the world. We are so sorry for a religious education that raised killers rather than train people to do good in the world. We are sorry that we did not take the time to teach our children tolerance and respect for other people. We are so sorry for not rising up against the dictators who have ruled the Muslim world for decades. We are so sorry for allowing corruption to spread so fast and so deep in the Muslim world that many of our youth lost hope. We are so sorry for allowing our religious leaders to relegate women to the status of forth class citizens at best and sub-humans at worse.

We have gone to them with racism and hatred. We have gone to them with feelings of cultural superiority and economic domination. We have gone to them with colonialism and exploitation.

Heaven 9/11 by DJ Sammy

It's been a year daddy
I really really miss you
Mommie says you're safe now
in a beautiful place called Heaven
We have your favorite dinner tonight
I ate it all up
even though i don't like carrots
I learned how to swim this summer
I can even open my eyes
when i'm under water
Can't you see me?
I started kindergarten this year
I carry around a picture of us
in my Blue's Clues lunchbox
You are the greatest daddy
I can swing on the swing by myself
even though i miss you pushing me
Can't you see me?
I miss how you used to tickle me
Tickle my belly
My belly hurts
I try not to cry
Mommie says it's ok
I know you don't like it when i cry
Never wanted me to be sad
I try daddy but it hurts
Is it true you're not coming home?
Maybe some day
I can visit you in Heaven, ok?
It's time for me to go to bed now
I sleep with the light on
just in case you come home
and kiss me good night
I love you so much
I miss you daddy

Last night I saw an interesting british doc in Tv.It was directed by Peter Jenkins and gives us a tour in countries like Pakistan, Morocco,Turky,Malasia,Indonesia.It shows how common people and some government leaders look at muslim religion,their ideas and difficulties on dealing with moderate and more conservative opinions on it and how they live the cult in their ordinary lifes.All week Tv is showing us all kinds of doc on 11 September...
I'll be back...soon...I hope!
Have a nice weekend!

Turning the Terrorists
Followed by Q&A with producer Paul Jenkins and reporter Peter Taylor

Peter Taylor travels to South East Asia, long Al-Qaeda’s recruiting, training and planning base, to see how successful the region has been in fighting the international terrorist threat. The region is Al Qaeda’s new Afghanistan and attracts jihadis from the UK and all over the world.

Taylor meets key figures who local authorities have persuaded to change sides including Nasir Abas, a former senior member of Jemaah Islamiya in Indonesia (J.I.), the Al Qaeda linked terrorist organisation responsible for the Bali bombings.

Today Abas not only provides the authorities with intelligence on his former comrades but talks to them after they’ve been arrested and tries to convince them that they followed the wrong path.

Hate can be beaten by Love

A Speech George W. Bush
Could Give to the Nation

By Doug Morris

Good evening, my fellow Americans

St. Augustine said that "hope has two beautiful daughters: anger and courage. Anger at the way things are, and courage to struggle to create things as they should be." These acts perpetrated against humanity on Tuesday were acts of anger at the way things are. They were not courageous acts, but horrendous atrocities, acts of anger laced with hate. Our first response must be support and compassion for the victims, and families and friends of the victims. But, in addition, we should ask ourselves "what conditions led these fellow humans to develop such anger and hatred, led them to commit such abominably inhumane acts, and why was it directed at these particular targets in the United States?"

We should not repress our anger and indignation at these hateful and callous acts, or our anger and indignation at all hateful and callous acts, but our anger must be accompanied not by hate, but with love, and by the courage to struggle to create a more just world, and THAT my fellow Americans will require a major effort to question, understand, challenge, change and raise OUR national consciousness. Please, my fellow Americans, listen with open ears, open minds and open hearts. .........................

let us remember and reflect upon the words stated in Corinthians 13:1-3 by Saint Paul: "though I may speak with the voice of angels; though I may understand all the mysteries; though I may have all the knowledge; though I may give all to feed the poor; though I may give my body to be burnedif I have not love, I have nothing at all."

Thank you. Good night, and blessings, peace, justice, solidarity and love for all humanity.

And now, my fellow Americans, in order to assist us in developing a much deeper understanding of all of these issues, I have invited MIT professor Noam Chomsky to share his views. Professor Chomsky will have unlimited time.
Thank you. Professor Chomsky, welcome.

Ο θλιβερός Kamal Nawash δεν κάνει τίποτε περισσότερο από το ν' αναπαράγει τα ιδεολογήματα περί σύγκρουσης των πολιτισμών, λες κι η πηγή του κακού είναι ο θρησκευτικός φανατισμός κι όχι οι ερπύστριες των τάνκς. Όχι, δεν θα πάρουμε!

It's Murder for Non-Moslems

September 8, 2006: The 32 months of violence in the Moslem south have so far caused nearly 4,300 casualties (40 percent of them fatal). During that period, there were some 5,500 incidents of Islamic terrorist violence. That's an average of 5-6 a day, among a population of 2.4 million (some 80 percent Moslem). The violence was largely directed at the 400,000 or so non-Moslems. The terrorist attacks have had the effect of doubling the normal murder rate in the south. A religiously inspired crime wave, so to speak. But the terror is very real as well, especially for non-Moslems. Since most of the deaths are among the non-Moslem minority, the death rate for that community has risen to about 15 per 100,000 per year. The rate in the U.S. is about 6 per 100,000 people per year.

While the number of bombings has increased this year, the casualty rate has gone down. This is largely because of the thousands of additional soldiers and police sent to the south. These security forces are everywhere down there. But the damage has already been done, and thousands of non-Moslem Thais have fled the south. The main objective of the Islamic terrorists is to expel all non-Moslems from the south, and then set up a religious dictatorship.

September 6, 2006: So far, five soldiers have been arrested for taking part in recent bombing attempts on the prime minister. So the attacks were apparently not a ploy by the prime minister to win sympathy.

September 4, 2006: The 21 bank branches that were bombed on August 31st, all reopened. Seven men have been arrested for participating in the bombing operation, and three of them have admitted their role.

September 1, 2006: The government is giving army and police commanders more freedom of action in the south, leaving it to them to come up with new ideas, and carry them out quickly.

According to the last census (2000) 94.6% of Thais are Buddhists of the Theravada tradition. Muslims are the second religious group in Thailand at 4.6%. However, these statistics err heavily in favor of Buddhists, as many provinces and towns south of Chumporn have dominant Muslim populations, the real Islamic population figure could be as high as 15%, including many ethnic Thai. Often Muslims live in separate communities from non-Muslims. The southern tip of Thailand are mostly ethnic Malays and they are mostly concentrated in the south, where they form a strong majority in four provinces. Christians, mainly Catholics, represent 0.75% of the population. A tiny but influential community of Sikhs and some Hindus also live in the country's cities.

I remember the first time I met Kamal Nawash. At that time he was running for political office in Northern Virginia. As an Arab-American, and someone with a Muslim name he was canvassing the Muslim community for votes and showing up at the meetings and conferences of all the major Muslim organizations (including those who he now brands as extremists and terror supporters).

Because I have received my education from the streets and not from ivory-tower academics, I am a good judge of character and when I saw Nawash I had two initial impressions; he is a sleazy politician that cant be trusted and he some how immediately looked and reminded me of Mr. Burns from The Simpsons........................

I wrote in an editorial for the Muslim Link encouraging Muslims not to vote for Kamal Nawash. It was my argument that supporting the Democratic candidate, whose political stances were more representative with the majority of Muslims in Northern Virginia, was preferable to voting for just someone with a Muslim name who was seeking to exploit the community.
Kamal Nawash a Muslim Fraud by Umar Lee

Ecumene said...

Free Muslims Against Terrorism, Or More Deception?

Why Muslims do not support him? It is because Jihad cannot be separated from Islam. Muslims know that. Mr. Nawash also knows that. By denouncing terrorism Mr. Nawash is not making Muslims more peaceful. To do that one has to denounce the Quran and Mr. Nawash is not willing to do that. In fact he still calls Islam his “beloved” religion and in his website he has stated: “The Free Muslims Coalition does not seek to change the tenets of the religion. However, the Coalition believes that the Koran only provides general principals of governance which leaves the faithful with substantial flexibility to modernize popular Muslim practices and beliefs.”

This statement is false and misleading. The Quran says unbelievers are filthy; Allah dislikes them, they will be fuels of hell and it orders Muslims to slay them. There is no equivocation in that and no amount of reinterpretation can change the obvious message of hate of that book.

So why is Mr. Nawash speaking against terrorism and claming to be a Muslim at the same time?

There are two possibilities.

a) Mr. Nawash is trying to pull wool over the eyes of the Westerners, by telling them what THEY want to hear and by giving them more false hopes that Islam has a peaceful side as well. In this way he will buy more time for Islam to wreak havoc.

b) Mr. Nawash, taking advantage of the gullibility of the Westerners and their lack of understanding of Islam has found a way to promote himself and this is nothing but a personal ego trip.

Since its founding in 1994, the Council on American-Islamic Relations and its employees have combined, conspired,
and agreed with third parties, including, but not limited to, the Islamic Association for Palestine (“IAP”), the
Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (“HLF”), the Global Relief Foundation (“GRF”), and foreign
nationals hostile to the interests of the United States, to provide material support to known terrorist organizations,
to advance the Hamas agenda, and to propagate radical Islam. The Council on American-Islamic Relations,
and certain of its officers, directors, and employees, have acted in support of, and in furtherance of, this conspiracy.

-- Points to Ponder --
CAIR Employees And Officials Support Terror

Senior CAIR employee Randall Todd Royer, a/k/a “Ismail” Royer, pled guilty and was sentenced to twenty years in prison
for participating in a network of militant jihadists centered in Northern Virginia. He admitted to aiding and abetting three persons
who sought training in a terrorist camp in Pakistan for the purpose of waging jihad against American troops in Afghanistan.
Royer’s illegal actions occurred while he was employed with CAIR.

CAIR's Director of Community Relations, Bassem Khafagi , was arrested by the United States due to his ties with a
terror-financing front group. Khafagi pled guilty to charges of visa and bank fraud, and agreed to be deported to Egypt.
Khafagi’s illegal actions occurred while he was employed by CAIR.

On December 18, 2002, Ghassan Elashi, founding board member of CAIR-Texas, a founder of the Holy Land Foundation,
and a brother-in-law of Musa Abu Marzook , was arrested by the United States and charged with, among other things,
making false statements on export declarations, dealing in the property of a designated terrorist organization, conspiracy
and money laundering. Ghassan Elashi committed his crimes while working at CAIR, and was found Guilty.

CAIR Board Member Imam Siraj Wahaj, an un-indicted co-conspirator in the first World Trade Center bombing,
has called for replacing the American government with an Islamic caliphate, and warned that America will crumble
unless it accepts Islam.

Rabih Haddad served as a CAIR Fundraiser. Haddad was co-founder of the Global Relief Foundation (“GRF”).
GRF was designated by the US Treasury Department for financing the Al Qaida and other terrorist organizations
and its assets were frozen by the US Government on December 14, 2001.

G W Bush*****************************

WAR ON TERROR......................
HISTORY TEACHES...................

Η ιστορία μας διδάσκει ότι το να υποτιμήσουμε τα λόγια του Κακού είναι τρομερό λάθος. Στις αρχές του 20ου αιώνα ένας εξόριστος δικηγόρος στην Ευρώπη δημοσίευεσε ένα φυλλάδιο με τον τίτλο "Τι να κάνουμε;", στο οποίο εξέφρασε το σχέδιο του να προκαλέσει κομμουνιστική επανάσταση στη Ρωσία. Ο κόσμος δεν έλαβε υπόψη τα λόγια του Lenin και πλήρωσε ένα φοβερό τίμημα. Η Σοβιετική Αυτοκρατορία, την οποία ίδρυσε, σκότωσε δεκάδες εκατομμυρίων και έφερε τον κόσμο στα πρόθυρα θερμοπυρηνικού πολέμου. Στη δεκαετία του 1920 ένας αποτυχημένος Αυστριακός ζωγράφος εξέδωσε ένα βιβλίο, στο οποίο εξηγούσε το σχέδιό του να κτίσει ένα Υπερ-κράτος Αρίων στη Γερμανία, να εκδικηθεί την Ευρώπη και να εξοντώσει του Εβραίους. Ο κόσμος αγνόησε τα λόγια του Hitler και πλήρωσε ένα φοβερό τίμημα. Το ναζιστικό καθεστώς του σκότωσε εκατομμύρια στους θαλάμους αερίων και προκάλεσε την ανάφλεξη του πολέμου πριν ηττηθεί οριστικά με τρομερό κόστος ανθρωπίνων ζωών.
O Bin Laden και οι τρομοκράτες σύμμαχοί του έχουν καταστήσει σαφείς τις προθέσεις τους, όπως ο Lenin και ο Hitler πριν απ΄αυτούς. Το ερώτημα είναι: θα ακούσουμε; Θα προσέξουμε τι λένε αυτοί οι διαβολικόι άνρθωποι; Η Αμερική και οι συμμαχοί μας έχουμε επιλέξει. Παίρνουμε τα λόγια τους στα σοβαρά. Βρισκόμαστε σε άμυνα και δεν θα αναπαυθούμε, δεν θα υποχωρήσουμε, δεν θα αποσυρθούμε από τη μάχη εώς ότου αυτή η απειλή για τον πολιτισμό έχει εξαλειφθεί.

History teaches that underestimating the words of evil and ambitious men is a terrible mistake. In the early 1900s, an exiled lawyer in Europe published a pamphlet called "What Is To Be Done?" -- in which he laid out his plan to launch a communist revolution in Russia. The world did not heed Lenin's words, and paid a terrible price. The Soviet Empire he established killed tens of millions, and brought the world to the brink of thermonuclear war. In the 1920s, a failed Austrian painter published a book in which he explained his intention to build an Aryan super-state in Germany and take revenge on Europe and eradicate the Jews. The world ignored Hitler's words, and paid a terrible price. His Nazi regime killed millions in the gas chambers, and set the world aflame in war, before it was finally defeated at a terrible cost in lives.

Bin Laden and his terrorist allies have made their intentions as clear as Lenin and Hitler before them. The question is: Will we listen? Will we pay attention to what these evil men say? America and our coalition partners have made our choice. We're taking the words of the enemy seriously. We're on the offensive, and we will not rest, we will not retreat, and we will not withdraw from the fight, until this threat to civilization has been removed.

Hi Ergo Ti Lina
That film has nothing to do with
Muslim religion.It is a triangular love story with lot of action.
An actor called Feroz Khan directed and acted in the movie.
It was released vin the year 1980.
I enjoy this film.It has fantastic songs and god action sequences.

Astonishing what happens in Turkey nowadays. That reminds me of another madness:
“People must get aware that Islam is not to be taken equal to any other religion. Islam is about to prevail as the only culture of this region, and in the whole world.” [Hamas] Hence…enter my club, buy my T-shirts. Better be blind and deaf out of rage than being an Islamofascist.

Ο Έλληνας πυροσβέστης Κρις Γεωργίου μιλάει για τις δραματικές στιγμές που ζουν εγκλωβισμένοι και διασώστες στη Νέα Υόρκη

Άργησε στη δουλειά και έτσι γλίτωσε......................

Τύχη βουνό. Ο χρηματιστής Κρις Γεωργίου άργησε να ξυπνήσει και δεν πήγε εγκαίρως στη δουλειά του στους Πύργους. Έτσι σώθηκε

Ξάδελφος του πυροσβέστη, με το ίδιο όνομα και επίθετο, ο 30χρονος χρηματιστής Κρις Γεωργίου, Γιαννιώτης και αυτός, θα ήταν σήμερα μεταξύ των αγνοουμένων, αν δεν είχε κοιμηθεί περισσότερο και την ώρα που το δεύτερο αεροπλάνο προσέκρουε στον όροφο όπου βρισκόταν και το γραφείο του, αυτός ήταν ακόμη στον δρόμο... Αυτή ήταν πραγματικά τύχη βουνό, γιατί ο Κρις ήταν πάντα ακριβής στην ώρα που πήγαινε στη δουλειά του. Τον εντοπίσαμε στο εστιατόριο του πεθερού του, όπου όλοι προσπαθούσαν να τον κάνουν να ξεπεράσει το σοκ. «Έχασε πολλούς φίλους και συναδέλφους. Δεν ξέρω πόσοι γλίτωσαν. Το δεύτερο αεροπλάνο καρφώθηκε στον όροφο τον δικό μας. Μετά κατέρρευσε το κτίριο. Εκεί θάφτηκαν όλα... Δεν μπορούσα να πιστέψω σε αυτά που έβλεπα. Περιφερόμουν γύρω από τα ερείπια σαν χαμένος... Οι δικοί μου είχαν τρελαθεί από την αγωνία και εγώ δεν σκέφτηκα ούτε ένα τηλέφωνο να τους πάρω... Το έκανα ύστερα από πολλές ώρες, ή μάλλον πρώτη τούς καθησύχασε η γυναίκα μου που ήξερε ότι είχα αργήσει να πάω και την ώρα του κακού δεν είχα φτάσει ακόμη στο γραφείο μου...». Σταματάει για λίγο και συνεχίζει σαν να μονολογεί: «Χάθηκαν όλα... Χάθηκαν αγαπημένοι φίλοι και συνάδελφοι...»

2.Madrasas.(religious schools)

They hate us because of the freedom-loving people we are. President Bush has been the principal exponent of this view. In 2004 Bin Laden responded by asking why, if this were true, had he not attacked freedom-loving Sweden

3.The CIA. The notion that Bin Laden is a CIA creation, and that the attacks on the Trade Centre and Pentagon were "blowback," is a standard analysis among leftists

4.Weak and failing states It is a staple of international relations theorists that weak and failed states are attractive bases for terrorists and criminals. That the 9/11 attack was first hatched in 1996 as al Qaeda moved its base from a weak state, Sudan, to a failed state, Afghanistan, seems to underline this theory.

5.Saudi financiers. Little or no hard evidence has been proffered for the claim that Saudi financiers were sponsoring al Qaeda, and the 9/11 report determined that there was no evidence that the money for the attacks came from Saudi Arabia.

6.The Saudis in general
This is also the contention of many of the families of the victims of the 9/11 attacks, who have signed on to a class action lawsuit against a range of Saudi institutions and individuals. In this view, the Saudi royal family made an unholy alliance with the purist Wahabbi sect and exported Wahabbism in order to shore up its shaky credibility as the custodian of the holy places of Mecca and Medina

7.The clash of civilisations. Samuel Huntington famously predicted that clashes between civilisations would replace cold war rivalries

7.Suicide terrorism, including 9/11, is a response to foreign occupation. In his influential 2005 book Dying to Win, political scientist Robert Pape examined a series of modern suicide campaigns and concluded that they are driven not by religious zeal but by foreign occupations

8.We are in a clash with a totalitarian ideology, similar to communism. The most serious proponent of this idea is Paul Berman, whose 2003 book Terror and Liberalism places "Binladenism" squarely in the tradition of modern millennial totalitarian ideologies such as fascism and communism


1.Radicalisation caused by the Afghan jihad during the Afghan war against the Soviet Union radicalised a generation of Arab militants.

2.A particular reading of Islamic texts.
a selective reading of the Koran and does not mean Islam is an inherently violent faith, but to believers the book is the word of God.
Decline and stagnation in the middle east and the "humiliation" of the Islamic world.
The economic and political failures in much of the Muslim world are underlined by statistics such as the fact that the non-oil revenues of all of the gulf states add up to less than the Gross domestic product of Finland.

3.The spread of communications technology.

4.Authoritarian middle east regimes helped incubate the militants.

5.The alienation of Muslim immigrants in the west.

6.US foreign policies in the middle east, in particular its support of Israel

To conclude, 9/11 was collateral damage in a civil war within the world of political Islam. On one side there are those, like Bin Laden, who want to install Taliban-style theocracies from Indonesia to Morocco. On the other side there is a silent majority of Muslims who are prepared to deal with the west, who do not see the Taliban as a workable model for modern Islamic states, and who reject violence. Bin Laden adopted a war against "the far enemy" in order to hasten the demise of the "near enemy" regimes in the middle east. And he used 9/11 to advance that cause. That effort has, so far, largely failed.

Yet Bin Laden and his attacks on the US have shaped an ideological movement that will outlive him. Binladenism has drawn tremendous energy from the war in Iraq, and will probably gain further adherents from the conflict in Lebanon. Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak was prescient when he warned in 2003 that the Iraq war would spawn "100 new Bin Ladens." It is that new generation of militants that is Bin Laden's legacy.

well... all the muslims disagree with any sucide accident like 9/11....but they can hardly stop it cos it is a reaction of the unfair policy of the great power in the west against the arab these extreme actions didnt exist before 20 years ago although islam had been there for 1500 years ago...why???
the extemists of islam were created as a reaction for the extremists of the unfair policy against the arabs..we ..the moderate muslims (who r 99% of muslim world)want to end those extreme reactions by stopping the extreme action of the western policy....other wise we will be
helpless...and victims also..

conspiracy can decieve many people...but belive me ..when y see the real news..the real things happening in the middle east y will be shocked that the international media doesnt show ...then y will not even bother about any theory..cos u will be freightned...

The principles of the plan were first outlined by U.S. President George W. Bush in a speech on June 24, 2002, in which he called for an independent Palestinian state living side by side with Israel in peace.

In exchange for statehood, the road map requires the Palestinian Authority to make democratic reforms and abandon the use of terrorism. Israel, for its part, must support and accept the emergence of a reformed Palestinian government and end settlement activity of the Gaza Strip and West Bank as the Palestinian terrorist threat is removed.

Ecumene said...

Is the world any safer?

Five years after the September 11 attacks, governments have invested billions of dollars to strengthen their anti-terrorist defenses, and tighter security checks have become a routine part of daily life around the world.

But increased awareness has arguably been matched by a rising threat, as a more diffuse and elusive al Qaeda has mobilized recruits among disaffected young Muslims in the heart of Western societies.

"I believe the threat has probably increased in western Europe, but we have responded and we are more resilient. And therefore risk, if it's a product of those two, is probably similar," said Rob Preston, terrorism risk consultant at AON insurance brokerage in London.

"I certainly don't think we're any safer, put it that way."

Inbar is also scathing about what he sees as a lack of progress since September 11 in aviation security, with continued over-reliance on old-fashioned metal detector gateways.

"A terrorist doesn't need to have a metal weapon. He can use a plastic knife. He can go into an aircraft, break a glass and make a knife out of the glass. He can break a Coca-Cola can and make a knife out of it."

A metal detector costs less than $10,000 to buy, but $1 million in wages to operate over a six- to seven-year life, Inbar said.

"All the metal detectors you have around are actually an aspirin for a cancer patient, and a very expensive one."

Support for terrorism is falling among Arab and European Muslims, according to the 2006 Pew Global Attitudes opinion poll.

Syrian director Najdat Anzour is dramatizing that opinion for a mass audience in his Ramadan special.

Anzour's message is not subtle: Terrorists are cold-blooded killers who also kill Muslims.

Ecumene said...


How many Russians,Chechens
and other nuetral local residents?..

Anyhow, whatever the truth is, according to these unofficial figures, the war in Chechnya results much more costly than Afghanistan. The shorter Chechen wars have been far more deadly for Russian forces than the Soviet war in Afghanistan, in which an estimated 14,000 Soviet forces were killed and 35,000 wounded over close to a decade of combat. Its is no wonder that Russian authorities hide their own public opinion the truth.

So, for the period from 1994 to 2003 estimates range from Chechen 50,000 to 250,000 civilians and 10,000 to 50,000 Russian servicemen. Given that almost certainly both sides have tended to exaggerate enemy military casualties while minimizing their own and grossly underestimating its responsibility for civilian losses, setting the death toll, from the beginning of the first war to present days, at 150,000 - 200,000 civilians, about 20,000 - 40,000 Russian soldiers and possibly the same amount of Chechen rebels, is a plausible estimate (and still perhaps a too conservative one). There are however well founded analysis which came to different conclusions (for instance Norbert Strade, the list moderator of the Yahoo mailing list on Chechnya, gives a quite different picture on the casualties -

Russian liberal Yabloko party leader Grigoriy Yavlinsky urged President Vladimir Putin to put an end to the war in Chechnya, which he described as pure "bloodshed" and a "political adventure", and launch negotiations with rebel leader Aslan Maskhadov. He also said that Russian army colonel Yury Budanov, accused of murdering a Chechen girl, should be convicted. The following are excerpts from Yavlinskiy's interview to Russian Channel 3 on 3 October:

Riding the Elevator Into the Sky

By Anne Sexton (1975)

As the fireman said:
Don't book a room over the fifth floor
in any hotel in New York.
They have ladders that will reach further
but no one will climb them.
As the New York Times said:
The elevator always seeks out
the floor of the fire
and automatically opens
and won't shut.
These are the warnings
that you must forget
if you're climbing out of yourself.
If you're going to smash into the sky.

Many times I've gone past
the fifth floor,
cranking upward,
but only once
have I gone all the way up.
Sixtieth floor:
small plants and swans bending
into their grave.
Floor two hundred:
mountains with the patience of a cat,
silence wearing its sneakers.
Floor five hundred:
messages and letters centuries old,
birds to drink,
a kitchen of clouds.
Floor six thousand:
the stars,
skeletons on fire,
their arms singing.
And a key,
a very large key,
that opens something –
some useful door –
somewhere –
up there.

Attack on U.S. embassy foiled
Syrian forces kill three armed assailants, wound fourth during battle in Damascus


WASHINGTON -- Islamic terrorists attacked the heavily fortified U.S. embassy compound in Damascus yesterday but failed to penetrate it after a fierce gun battle with Syrian security forces.

At least one Syrian guard employed by the embassy was killed and several policemen were injured. Three of the four assailants were killed and one was wounded, according to Syrian authorities.

Four gun-toting men shouting "Allahu akbar" opened fire in a brazen mid-morning attack. Heavy gunfire erupted as Syrian security forces responded. U.S. Marines, inside the compound, were not involved in the battle, which lasted, according to some eyewitness reports, nearly 10 minutes.

Two vehicles, both laden with explosives, were reportedly involved. One detonated and burned outside the embassy, causing little damage. The other failed to explode.

Top Bush administration officials, usually harshly critical of the Baathist regime in Damascus, initially expressed their gratitude.

"The Syrians reacted to this attack in a way that helped to secure our people, and we very much appreciate that,
" said U.S. State Secretary Condoleezza Rice, in Canada on an official visit.

But the usual enmity quickly returned.

Mr. Bush's "policies in the Middle East have fuelled extremism, terrorism and anti-U.S. sentiment," the Syrian government said in a statement issued by its embassy in Washington. It said Syrian security forces fought bravely to defend the U.S. embassy.

DAMASCUS — Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said yesterday the US was grateful for Syria’s response to an attack against the US embassy in Damascus.

The top US diplomat said it was unclear who was responsible for the attack and said: “I was very grateful that the attack did not succeed.”
