"One of the
reasons I believe the spiritual door was opened for an attack
against the United States of America is that the policy of our
Government has been to ask the Israelis, and demand it with
pressure, not to retaliate in a significant way against the
terrorist strikes that have been launched against them."

Torquemada and the people who ran the Spanish Inquisition did

excerpt from her poem "Don't Go," about the 9-11 terrorist
attack on the World Trade Center: Terrorist attack:
four sets of radical, extremist, Fundamentalist Islamic
terrorists, totaling about 18 in number, hijacked four
jetliners, and piloted them towards the White House, Congress,
and the two World Trade Towers. The first plane apparently was
unable to find the White House and made a kamikaze run at part
of the Pentagon. Control of the plane which headed towards
Congress was apparently retaken by the passengers; it crashed
into the ground south-east of Pittsburgh.
The remaining two
jetliners destroyed the north and south towers of the World
Trade Center in New York City. Originally, over 5,000 lives
were believed to have been lost in total. However, further
checking found many duplicate names. The total death toll is a

citizens of Canada, Britain and other countries died in the
tragedy. They included Christians, Humanists, Jews, Muslims,
and followers of many other religions and ethical systems.

Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) reported in excess

Sikhs and Hindus have also suffered harassment, arson, and

Fundamentalist and other Evangelical leaders attacked Islam

Radical, extremist, fundamentalist, Muslim terrorists, who are
profoundly intolerant of viewpoints other than their own, and
who are dedicated to attacking persons who hold different
fundamentalists, conservatives, moderates and liberals who
promote Islam as a religion of peace and tolerance.
