The Crusade which began after September 11 with Air crash on Twin towers of World Trade Center, is still on.The battle between terrorism,terrorists(Jehad word has been hijacked) with US and its allies after the attack of 9/11 has entered never ending phase.Though countries like India have been fighting this since 80’s and Israel from the day of its inception .
19 highly motivated terrorists hijacked four airlines jets, and crashed them killing close to 5000, Christians, Muslims, Hindus,Jews, atheists.
The most audaciously planned terror attack ever against US.This 9/11 attack completely changed the perception of US people,as they became increasingly paranoid about flying and the world is general started to debate on topics like Clash of civilizations.People went back to history books to find precedence, going back to crusades and Jehads fought between Christians and Muslims over Jerusalem.(It is quite amusing to think that these three religions have one holy place, called Jerusalem,Christians, Muslims and Jews all view it as their holy place.The question is why? in a way i think these guys are brothers, as they all belong to the same land,they would have drank water from the same source,eaten food from the same soil,Tthe question is why three religions)this holds importance as Khalid Sheikh Mohammad,the chief architect of the attack was strongly critical of US policy in middle east and Israel.YesOsama bin Laden and Al Qaeda have towered in the minds of US citizens as the epitome of terrorism.
People also started to revisit the times when the likes of Salaudin,Franks, were around.
One religion has been specifically cornered ever since,and it is stated that all terrorists are Muslims, but not all muslims are terrorists.There have been other books like Clash of Fundamentalism, which give a deep insight into the origins of Islam,fight against Pagan tribes,concept of 72 hoors in Jannat, US policy of treating the world .All terror attacks are more or less traced back to Pakistan. What China is to cheap goods, so is Pakistan for terrorism.
Looking back, we realize that US society has changed a lot and since 9/11, there hasn’t been a single attack on the US soil after 9/11.This speaks volume of effort put by US homeland security in making sure that zero terror attacks take place. Of course World trade center has changed too,ground zero as it is called, is now being made with a memorial and new world trade center.
Well, September 11 or 9/11, has changed the geography of the world(my favorite subject)
