NEARLY 3,000 PEOPLE FROM 90 COUNTRIES KILLED ON 9/11 ARE REMEMBERED

A decade after the tragic events of September 11, 2001, put into motion by Islamic extremists, the loss of 3,000 precious souls from some 90 countries, were remembered today, a decade since the horrific event now known as "9/11."

Even as some observers firmly believe that the events of 9/11 were orchestrated by the US Government itself, most educated people realize, of course, that such a notion is absurd and simply an intentional distortion of documented fact.

Throughout the world, formal ceremonies paid tribute to the nearly 3,000 who perished that fateful day, even as Swedish police arrested four suspects on suspicion of preparing a terror attack and as authorities in Washington and New York beefed up security in response to intelligence about possible plans for a car bomb attack.

Even in Tokyo, the families of 23 Fuji Bank employees who never made it out of their World Trade Center office were respectfully remembered.

Elsewhere in Europe, Pope Benedict XVI, at an outdoor Mass in Ancona, Italy, prayed for victims and urged the world to resist what he called the "temptation toward hatred" and instead work for solidarity, justice and peace. In Paris, where an array of commemorations were planned, an association of French "friends" of America was preparing to unveil a temporary nine-story scaled-down replica of the Twin Towers bearing the victims' names across.

COMMENT: Broadcast networks around the world offered extensive coverage of what transpired on 9/11 and how the many nations that lost its citizens that day have had their lives changed forever.

Following the events of 9/11, the following countries sustained equally horrific and high-casualty terrorist attacks or attempted terrorist attacks on their own soil, as they stood should-to-shoulder with the US in the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT):

United Kingdom

Pakistan

Indonesia

Israel

Jordan

Turkey

Philippines

Spain

Morocco

Afghanistan

Iraq

United States

Nigeria

Our remembrance of those who lost their lives, were injured and the first responders who saved lives on September 11 are ever-present in our prayers and in our thoughts.

Our thanks go out to all nations that have been victimized by Islamic terrorists, few as they may be, knowing that the majority of Muslims everywhere find the events of 9/11 as repugnant as the many nations that have been touched forever by religious hatred.
