Mohamed Atta's father : "Yay for terrorism"

The father of the egyptian 9/11 highjacker Mohamed Atta said that he would like to see more attacks of the 7/7 London variety. El-Amir said the attacks in the United States and the July 7 attacks in London were the beginning of what would be a 50-year religious war, in which there would be many more fighters like his son. He declared that terror cells around the world were a "nuclear bomb that has now been activated and is ticking." The man, who gave his age as "at least 70," said he had no sorrow for what happened in London, and said there was a double standard in the way the world viewed the victims in London and victims in the Islamic world. Cursing in Arabic, el-Amir also denounced Arab leaders and Muslims who condemned the London attacks as being traitors and non-Muslims. Ehh, egyptian government mukhabarat people? Habib el Adly? Hi, I have a question : Why is this guy running around free and unsupervised exactly? How about monitoring his relatives? Or, you know, any young and easily influenced people he sits and talks to? Oh wait, i forgot, your job isn't to stop terrorism, it's to keep arresting Mubarak dissidents and torturing America's terrorists suspects. Ooops, my bad. What was i thinking? sigh...

This is the same guy, if I remember correctly, who claimed after 9/11 that there was no way his son could have been involved with the attacks, that he was a good boy, that the U.S. goverment was lying when it said he was on the planes and that he was really alive somewhere but his identity must have been stolen.

So someone should ask Mr. Atta, which is it?

Exactly lisa...more so-one of the things that he said then that his son was so docile that he acted like "girls"-aka not having the guts to do anything.. I thought to my self then, hummmm. inteesting that this guy will go all the way to describe his son as a khawal in an environemtn that does not tolorate them..just to get him off the hook...oh well

Yeah, but I'll be willing to bet he'll get a Visa to come here,just like his poofter son, unlike someone innocent but not having 10,000 USD in a savings account. Yep, our State Department, they care.

Lisa, Ny,

I recalled the same thing you did. I searched on "Atta" combined with "Father" and verified our recollections. The father's behaviour throughout is grossly evil.
