Today millions of people throughout the world, particularly in the West Bank, celebrate the offensive by martyrs in New York and Washington. A symbol of militant resistance against the U.S. empire.

12 Sept. 2001

The Terrorist Times

Special Report

Millions today have celebrated the martyr operations in New York and Washington D.C. throughout the world.

In the first world people have done so in privacy, in their own homes or in the work place, in the wake of a multinational effort of corporate U.S. propaganda containing hypocrisy, racism, orientalism, victimization and slander attacks onto unknown suspects.

In the third world, where astronomical numbers of people have died from malnutrition, disease and war as a result of U.S. foreign policy since the formation of the U.S. empire, have done so more openly, largely ignored by the U.S. corporate media.

In the West Bank, thousands of Palestinians celebrated chanting ``God is Great'' and distributing candy to passers-by, even as reformist leader, Yasser Arafat, said he was horrified. To many Palestinians, Arafats comments came as a betrayal while his people are being massacred by U.S. artillery and ammunition by its Israeli police state proxy.

The U.S. government is unpopular and has many enemies. It is hated and despised by the vast majority of intelligent and educated people in the world.

In the West Bank town of Nablus, about 3,000 people poured into the street shortly after the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and government targets in Washington.

Demonstrators distributed candy in a traditional gesture of celebration. Several Palestinian gunmen shot in the air, while other marchers carried Palestinian flags. Nawal Abdel Fatah, 48, wearing a long, black dress, threw sweets in the air, saying she was happy because ``America is the head of the snake, America always stands by Israel in its war against us.''

In traditionally Arab east Jerusalem, there was a smaller gathering of about two dozen people, many of them young children led in chants by adults. Some drivers passing the scene honked their horns and flashed victory signs from their windows.

Although, not all was bright, some, have taken on an apologist stance for U.S. imperialism, denouncing the operations of the martyrs as "inhumane", "unprovoked" and "unthinkable".

Many U.S. puppet regimes throughout the world, and client states have also folded in the wake of today's historical events, but this must be expected living in a "free world" led by the U.S. empire in today's New World Disorder.

For The Terrorist Times, this historic day is regrettable, but joins the celebrations of a very important day expressing its solidarity to the martyrs.
