"Compared to the scale of death and destruction that the US has unleashed on major cities in Afghanistan and Iraq, and later Bashar al-Assad and his nemesis have visited upon Syria, the destruction of those two towers now appears as entirely negligible, even remembering them perhaps an insult to the memories of hundreds of thousands of innocent human beings maimed and murdered and turned into hopeless refugees in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya or Syria."
Professor, Columbia University
There have been a lot of expressions recently that have defamed and profaned our commemoration of 9-11, but this is one of the worst. Professor Hamid Dabashi, who teaches Iranian studies and comparative literature at Columbia University, has written the below piece for Al Jazeera, that despicable news outlet based in Qatar. Shamefully, we have numerous professors in American colleges that write for this bunch telling AJ's readers just want they want to hear in terms of demonizing the US and Israel.
It is bad enough to blame the US for the intolerance, violence and dysfunction of the Middle East, problems that go back centuries. But for this man to trash our commemorations of 9-11 is much worse. I suggest that if he moved back to his native Iran, he would not have to deal with 9-11 commemorations.
