468) Fawazeer Ramadan : 9/11 !

I can't believe that there are some people who do really celebrate Sept. 11th, greeting each other, and even writing that on MSN and Facebook!!

No matter what Bush does to the world, we should never mix that with our sympathy for those who lost their loved ones in that horrible day that changed the world to a much worse place to live.

El Fazoura: Why should anyone be happy because of 9/11?!

Well, again, I don't have an answer to your 9/11 puzzle as I was not shown the hearts and minds of the people who are happy about the 2001 Sept. 11 events. But this year it looks like the United States is actually taking an impressive positive attitude toward the anniversary of 9/11.

Barack Obama, in a statement, said that on Sept. 11, 2001, "Americans across our great country came together to stand with the families of the victims, to donate blood, to give to charity, and to say a prayer for our country. Let us renew that."

In another statement, Obama said that 9/11 showed "that here in America, we all have a stake in each other; I am my brother's keeper, I am my sister's keeper; and we rise and fall as one nation."

“Seven years after terrorist attacks plunged the United States into despair and then lifted it into unprecedented - if fleeting - unity, the nation is now entangled in an election that highlights the divisiveness that defines it. On Thursday, at Ground Zero, the presidential candidates will take a campaign-trail time-out to stand together. “We will put aside politics and come together to renew that unity,” Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain said in a joint statement reminding Americans that on Sept. 11, 2001, “we were united as one American family.”” (Quoting Atlanta Journal- Constitution)

Inspiring...that's all I have to say.

yes indeed mona but those who are happy who think that america is al shaytan el akbar and they are the angels.

Omar, I don't know what to say. For some reason I thought that all of us people were human beings. But maybe some of us got mixed up on that part.

I am not sure I am getting the point about the course on the Arab World thing that you are suggesting and I really would like to learn more about what you mean by that. Thanks for you help.

Hello Mona :)
I mean that here in the Arab world we are used to sacrifice innocents and keep on our lives.
For instance, the children killed by the Israeli in Egypt, Palestine, Lebanon. No one kept mourning them for 7 yrs or even for less (sometimes occasionally Aljazeera will remember some of them to fill some idle time). Not because they don’t worth the mourning but because the Arabs learnt the hard lesson that innocents might get killed and life is to keep going on because there will always be an innocent to mourn. (Remember Mohamed El Dura, the kid who got killed and inspired a new intifada? His death was that big to inspire thousands of Arabs to protest the Israeli occupation and he was forgotten the same way the whole Palestine issue was forgotten)
But unlike the Americans most of the Arabs won’t even dare dreaming of revenge. Look how many innocents died in return for those who died in 9/11. And in 7 yrs, those who died in 9/11 are still remembered and those who were killed in the US implementation of “an eye for an eye” are just past.
I believe that the 9/11 is highly affecting the US politics in the time it should not. It turned the United States into a monster, Bush’s administration sought blood everywhere but the right place. They killed innocents, gained hate and achieved nothing. I think Mr. Obama’s speech is both inspiring and commercial. These types of speeches were described by the Egyptian famous writer Mahmood El Sa3dany as “7angooreya”. He used that misery and some sound words to appear like the new knight, typical politics. If the US is really serious about taking a positive attitude towards the 9/11 Americans should mourn all those who died because of that day. And start a new era, and start mending what Bush and his 9/11 politics ruined.
