QATAR- “U.S. WORST TERRORIST EVER”
“The truth is: The U.S. is the worst terrorist ever in the whole of history. The American military machine alone has killed 8 million human beings. Now it wants to recruit Arab and Muslim soldiers in its crusade against Arabs and Muslims. It wants to convince us into feeling sympathy for it, and to fight new wars to annihilate some of our peoples in revenge for the death of 6,000 of its citizens and residents in the bombings in New York and Washington.
If the U.S. wants to solve the Palestinian problem, it can order Israel to withdraw immediately- something it has never done, and will never do.”
Quoted from the LA TIMES of 10-14-2001 that reported on stories taken from the leading papers in their respective countries in the near east and India and Pakistan. All condemned the U.S. attacks on Afghanistan. Russia stated it will not participate in the war.
