On the power of Islam and the
On September 11, 2001 terrorists crashed two American airline airplanes into Twin Towers, killing thousands of people. It was the worst terrorist attack in American history and it showed us that we are not protected by Atlantic and Pacific. It showed us that we could be attacked by anyone at anytime. It showed us that if we will be attacked again that we can only depend on each other and not on other nations to help us.
The 9/11 changed people forever, some lost family members or friends, others lost their jobs even so called American Dream. The September 11th attacks made us united as one powerful person who can stand up from the ruins of thousands pounds of metal and fight so that we wont have to be in ruins again. In the recent videos Osama bin Laden and his colleagues are talking about the power of Islam and the attacks on Twin Towers. It seems like Osama bin Laden and other radicals are ready for Jihad and they are ready to win. They say that Allah is on their side and people around the world want to learn more about Islam since the September 11th attacks. A good example was John Walker, an American who was with Taliban army man when he was captured. He was studying Muslim traditions in Pakistan where he joined Taliban.
The other day I was watching Dennis Miller Live where I heard Dennis Miller talk about John Walker, he said that his parents should give him more then just spanking. This showed me that even today almost five months of 9/11 people still talk about it.Our military campaigns in Afghanistan eliminated a regime that supported terrorism and other violent groups.
Today in Afghanistan there is no regime and the country is rebuilding it self from the ruins of Soviet war. John Ashcroft who is now the famous man on TV is probably the only one who takes the problem seriously. He said that he wants to check for people who have connections with the Alquida and its cells.
But some people say its unconstitutional to do that, but in 1700s or even 1800s terrorists did not attack America. That means that our finding fathers did not had to deal with Ottoman Empire nor their attacks because we were protected by oceans. Even in the old days constitution was not a factor for some people to do something immoral or illegal.
So today if Chicago police officer stops an Iraqi who is standing next to a federal building and looks nervous Id say that a police officer can stop him and search him.After the September 11th attacks we look different at Muslims because we think that they are dangerous. I dont think all of them are, but there are a lot of them who dislike the westernized world. After the attacks all Arab nations accused Israel and its nationals of attacks on New York, saying that Israelis did not go to work that day and that Israeli photographers were on top of buildings when the plane hit the first tower. They also stated that Americans would never know that because Jews own American media. But the fact is, one the same day of the attacks Palestinians celebrated on the streets and Arafat told journalists to turn off their cameras or else.
And even today after President Bush called on Iraq, Iran , and North Korea to stop producing weapons of mass destruction and supporting terrorism, those nations still say that they will attack any nation that tries to attack them. This shows the stupidity that some countries have. If they think that David and Goliath battle can happen again they should look at Taliban.In conclusion, our nation was terrified after the 9/11 attacks. The enemy wanted destroy our economy by destroying the Twin Towers, but they failed and the brought us together. By crashing American Airlines and United Airlines planes into the towers they only scared us about flying airplanes, well American companies at least. But we still showed them that a terrorist organization couldnt bring one strong nation into ciaos.Words/ Pages : 688 / 24
