Flashback:Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's cheerful mood in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks

by Cem Ertür Monday, Jan. 20, 2014 at 8:56 PM

“We have assembled here today [...] in order to bow our heads in sorrow and deep mourning over the deaths of innocent citizens in New York and Washington [...] [perpetrated] by criminal terrorists of the worst kind that the world has known since World War II, and even beyond.” said the then Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon during a speech at the Israeli parliament Knesset fıve days after the 9/11 attacks. However, some photos taken in the three months after the attacks betray a strikingly different mood of both Mr Sharon (1928-2014) and the foreign political leaders with whom he held consultations...



Flashback: Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's cheerful mood in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks

“We have assembled here today [...] in order to bow our heads in sorrow and deep mourning over the deaths of innocent citizens in New York and Washington [...] [perpetrated] by criminal terrorists of the worst kind that the world has known since World War II, and even beyond.” said the then Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon during a speech at the Israeli parliament Knesset fıve days after the 9/11 attacks. [1]  However, some photos taken in the three months after the attacks betray a strikingly different mood of both Mr Sharon (1928-2014) and the foreign political leaders with whom he held consultations...








Jerusalem Mayor Ehud Olmert, New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon,
New York Governor George Pataki and New York City Mayor-elect Michael Bloomberg, Jerusalem,
9 December 2001. The New York delegation was on a solidarity visit in the wake of the bombing attacks in
Jerusalem.






“The people of Jerusalem and the people of New York City are shoulder-to-shoulder, and the people of America and the people of Israel are shoulder-to-shoulder in the fight against terrorism. We feel a great kinship with the people of Israel. We always have and I think since September 11 and what's happened here in Israel we're even closer.”


[New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, press remarks during a visit to the site of recent bombing attacks in Jerusalem, 9 December 2001]  [2]










U.S. President George Bush and Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, White House, Washington D.C.,
2 December 2001






 “[U.S.] president [George Bush] told me that the United States is a true friend and partner of the state of Israel. In times of peace, just as today in our fight against terror, the United States and Israel stand together.”


[Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's address to the nation, Jerusalem, 3 December 2001. The speech was delivered in the wake of the bombing attacks in Jerusalem.]  [3]










Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani hold a press conference at the
site of the Center attacks, New York City, 30 November 2001






“Terror must be fought everywhere. Israel and the United States will win in that battle. […]  Iraq is a state that is exceptionally dangerous for Israel, a state with the potential for and knowledge of weapons of mass destruction. It may be that within a short time they will have nuclear weapons.”


[Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, joint press conference with New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani at the site of the World Trade Center attacks, New York City, 30 November 2001.]  [4]










Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Sharon's official residence in Jerusalem,
1 November 2001






“I would like to praise [British] Prime Minister Blair's leadership, together with US President George Bush, in the struggle against global terrorism. It is a fight for basic values, freedom, liberty, security and democracy. It is a fight that every peace loving nation supports for the sake of the security of future generations.

Bashar Assad is hosting the eleven most dangerous and radical terrorist organisations. […]  [Syria] allowed the Iranians to build there an independent international centre, and international, regional and local centre of terror, bringing in thousands of rockets and Cartusa launchers and Cartusa Missiles and that of course makes Syria a country of terror - the center of terror.”


[Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, joint press conference with British Prime Minister Tony Blair at Sharon's official residence, Jerusalem, 1 November 2001. The press conference was held a month after the launch of the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan.]  [5]










Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Turkey's Foreign Minister Ismail Cem, Sharon's farm in Shiqmim, Israel,
22 September 2001






“We share the sorrow of the United States and we believe that we should all participate strongly in the war against terrorism that is being initiated. […]  We are the forefront of that coalition, which is going to and which is fighting terrorism. There is no question about it.”


[Turkey’s Foreign Minister Ismail Cem, joint press conference with Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres, Tel Aviv, 21 September 2001. The press conference was held 10 days after the September 2001 attacks in New York City and Washington D.C.]  [6]
