FlashBack 2001 – What I said long before 9/11!

9 11 2015


Bush had just become President days before, Sharon was about to be elected Prime Minister in Israel, and this is what I wrote on 27 January 2001, long before 9/11:

.“We’ve noted the ‘war fever’ growing in the region for some months now. There’s considerable anxiety about who may now strike first. A major “terrorist” incident, further attacks against the Palestinians, anything from the fanatical Israeli settlers that threatens the Islamic holy sites…any or all of these could quickly escalate under today’s conditions. The whole region is psychological dry and on edge making it possible for any kind of spark to ignite a major conflagration at this point.”
