[On the September 11 attacks]
There was a significant chance a close relative had been killed in the attacks, but I couldn't stop cheering. America has felt like a bus someone else is driving for too long now; the spell was broken in that moment, whether from within or from without, and I thought it was good to have reality come home to roost. I don't feel differently now. Those attacks took courage and amazing vision in planning and they are some of the most unforgettable images in American history. At the very least, they should be praised for bringing a sense of reality, of mortality and imminent change into the stagnant lives of Americans.
I still feel the same way. The lines of war have been drawn. Despite the American president, Israel, the United Nations and the Judeo-Christian American media attempting to tell us otherwise, it became clear to the educated out there that America's support for Israel had its enemies. And that our actions had been one-sided and continued to be so, and that perhaps a foreign power is in control of the American state...
Today I've read about Irv Rubin, leader of the Jewish Defense League, dying of a suicide which his wife says was not something he would do. If someone whacked him, why wouldn't it be the Mossad or the CIA, to remove a troublesome vision of those of a certain religion as politically active? The Christians in Europe and their guests, the "Chosen People of God" from Israel, have long been waging war to recapture the middle east. I know their religion is death worship and brings nothing but death to all that is beautiful, natural and independent in this world... how could I care about a few thousand dead when there is so much more expressed in an act of beauty like the 9-11 attacks?
[On Osama bin Laden]
I would first praise what he has done, and I would then volunteer to write a history of the world based on ancient Buddhist and Islamic texts.
