9/11 Attacks:
Terrorists Target Population

Sep 5, 2011

After the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center buildings ten years ago, this is what SPARK had to say about the attack itself:

“With complete indifference, the organizers of this attack set out to kill people, people whose only crime was to work in those buildings or to travel on those planes—people who left home that morning thinking only that they were going to work....

“Whoever carried out the attack was ready to kill indiscriminately and randomly in order to demonstrate that symbols of American power could be attacked. Attacked the symbols may have been. But symbols can be replaced. The people killed and wounded cannot be.

“Those who directed and carried out this disgusting attack are enemies of all people, including the people they pretend to defend. People in Afghanistan and Pakistan were among the first to be attacked by them years ago.

“No cause can justify such an action.”

No more than the 9/11 attacks can justify what the U.S. has done over the last 10 years to millions of people in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and throughout the Middle East.
