September 11

Published in Newsweek October 22, 2001

September 11 was a cruel and unprecedented attack on ordinary people. We should remember those who died with love and try to make the world a safer place for everybody regardless of nationality, income or religion. The number of people who died in New York is smaller than the number who was killed in the village of Srebrenica, Bosnia, when Nato pulled out. It is slightly larger than the number of children who die of hunger and disease in one month in Iraq, and it is about the same number of people who die of malaria every two days.
