That display is indeed shocking and disgusting, but there are also plenty of palestinians worrying about their relatives in NYC. Many of those around the world who put anything but a tragic spin on the attack are those who have demonified America as "the devil" and have never actually met a real American in their lives. My girlfriend is a moslem and differences in perpsectives over yesterday has been causing a lot of tension (ex: she talks about the NY cabbies wearing turbans who are being lynched - that bothers me but it's not the focus of my thoughts from yesterday). Glad you're ok Gil. To those who asked, I've heard news that my friend who works on the stock exchange floor is fine.
