Visitors discover
eerie reminder
at Ground Zero

By Rebecca Neal

IHE xtntucxv KENIEL

NEW YORK ,, They came from around the
world. some clutching American flags. others with
handfuls of photographs and tissues. to lean
against a fence and stare into a seven-story hole.

This is not just any hole. nor is this just any
other day This is Sept. 11. 2004. and the location is
the World Trade Center site Ground Zero.

The tragedy. the depth of human loss and suf-
fering is heart-wrenching to watch on television.
Magnify that by a thousand to have the feelings of
observing the anniversary on the site. standing on
the now-hallowed ground where three years ago
people ran for their lives through sooty air and life
or death decisions were made in seconds.

The tall steel fence surrounding the site has be-
come a memorial for the final resting place for
2.749 people. But don‘t think of those who died as
numbers - remember them as people.

“It is because FF (firefighter) John Hefferman

day. Thank You Jennie. "

This survivor left a bouquet of rainbow-colored
carnations wedged in the fence just below a plaque
bearing Hefferman's name. His name is on the
plaque as one of 343 firefighters
killed in the towers.

New York City EMT Terry
Callendrillo came to Ground
Zero at 5 am. to pay tribute to
his fallen comrades. Wrestling a
banner listing the names of all
the victims superimposed over
the words “never forget. " he said
New Yorkers will never escape
the horror that originated on
this hallowed ground.

“These people were our
brothers. fathers. uncles and
neighbors." he said. "For us in
New York City. we live the re-
minder every day."

But words on a card tucked in the corner of the
fence offer mourners like (Jallendrillo a bit of come

Mourners could find this at the historic St.

historic minute.





He rang the bell to times each of those minutes:
thousands bowed their heads in silence. respect
and shared suffering.

Firefighter Ramiro Zapata of Austin. ’I‘exas.
wiped away tears as he hugged his sevenmonth old
son. Roberto Emiliano Zapata.

“Many men who died here never saw their chil-
dren." he said. “It's so hard to be here. but it makes
us stronger against terror"

Zapata has come to the site every year. he said.
to spend time with New York firefighters and find
comfort in tragedy

Many of the families of those killed in the tow-
ers find comfort in returning to the site. For most.
it is all they have left of their loved ones, The
falling of the towers made a traditional funeral im-
possible. Now they place their flowers and notes on
the fence. not a tombstone.

"There is no greater family than the lore of a
united American family. "

The families have not been completely receptive
to the city‘s plans to develop the site. The earth is
being moved for a new skyscraper the Til-story
Freedom Tower which will be completed in 2009.
A 2(i-ton granite cornerstone now rests at Ground

Green space and a memorial are planned for
the site. but many families are upset to see it used
for commercial development.

For them. this sevenstory hole is a cemetery

Students will no longer

UK is now offering a
contract to freshmen that

Arab TV Reporter Dies Near Battle Site

A US. helicopter attack in Baghdad. lraq. Sunday morning killed
at least 37. including a television journalist whose death was captured
on videotape.

Mazen al-Tumeizi. a 26-year-old reporter for the Arab-language TV
station Al Arabiya. died from injuries sustained when the US. beli-
copter fired on a disabled Bradley Armored Vehicle.

The vehicle exploded behind Tumeizi as he was filming a live re-
port of the battle.

Footage broadcast on Al Arabiya shows ’l‘umeizi standing about 20
feet in front of the burning armored vehicle with a crowd in the back-
ground milling around the wreckage.

As the American vehicle is engulfed in smoke by the explosion.
Tumeizi appears to double over and wince. He is then heard shouting.
“I'm going to die" as the cameraman scrambles for cover

It's unclear from the footage whether the explosion was caused by a
rocket fired by a US. helicopter something Baghdad residents claim
and the US. military denies.

Tumeizi is the third Al Arabiya employee killed in Baghdad this
year. In March. a journalist and a cameraman were shot by [PS troops
at a Baghdad checkpoint.

The US. military said the deaths were accidental and expressed re-
gret for the incident

Fear, prejudice of Islam since Sept. ll
still pose problems three years later

By Robin Wright

WASHINGTON ~ Psychologists say
the most intense period of mourning
lasts three years.

Since Sept. 11. 2001. Americans have
indeed passed through several stages of
grief. from disbelief to anger to a de~
gree of acceptance.

Yet. there's still a gnawing fear in
our bellies that prevents full recovery.

It‘s a fear that extends. i believe.
well beyond Osama bin Laden and the
prospects of another attack. and cen-
ters instead on our relationship with Is»
lam itself.

Once familiar to most Americans
mainly from seventh grade social stud-
ies. Islam has now become synonymous
in the minds of many with the biggest
post-Cold War threat.

Even as we struggle to understand
it. we're afraid of it. And because of
that fear. we‘re drawing a Green (‘ur-
tain around the Muslim world. creat ing
an enduring divide.

Figuring out Islam‘s role in the 21st
century is an existential challenge. but
one many of us are emotionally unpre
pared to face. We pretend that we‘re not
prejudiced. that we understand that
most Muslims don‘t support the horrif-
ic bloodshed of bin Ladenism.

Yet we still view 1.2 billion Muslim
people spread throughout 53 countries
as a threatening monolith. As long as
we make that mistake. America and its
allies won't feel safe. no matter how
many billions of dollars are poured
into security precautions.

Aside from the vital mission of
tracking down bin Ladenists. military
muscle is not always an effective in-
strument for moving forward. Nor are
tepid diplomatic initiatives aimed at
coaxing authoritarian governments
into adopting change at a pace and in a
manner that they control

There's another strategy that's
gaining favor among Mideast experts
Bring Islamic movements and groups
into the political process. (live Islamist
parties new political space wide
open space — to absorb passions and
sap anger.

That means accepting. even eat
bracing. the idea that Islam is not tin
problem. but the way out of a political
predicament that has been building
quietly for decades.

It means not only supporting nav
tionalists. liberals and nascent democ-
rats already on our side in the quest to
transform the Middle East but also enr
couraging Islamists and their parties to

Basically. it means differentiating
between Islamists and Jihadists. and ac
cepting anyone willing to work within
a system to change it rather than work
from outside to destroy it

Mideast scholars say it‘s too late tr
do anything less.

The alternative is alienating even
more Muslims by excluding them And
alienation from closed pt)llllt a1 .sys
tems and corrupt economies is what
originally drove many Muslims to seek
refuge in their mosques

Including Islamists in government
is an uncomfortable idea for those ol
us in secular societies

It summons up haunting images of
Iranian clerics and American hostages.
oppressed women and antiquated laws
That's why for years. US governments
have accepted Algeria‘s military. which
voided free elections won by Islamic
parties. and Hosni Mubarak‘s suppres
sion of Egypt's Muslim groups

That‘s shortsighted because perpet
uating the status quo will be worse

Now that Islamists have moved from
the fringe to the center of political ac-
tivity. a trend that has accelerated since
the I'.S. invasion of Iraq. they can no
longer be excluded.

We have to think outside the prism
of the war on terrorism.

"Evert as it wages a resolute cani~
paign against international terrorism.
America should not believe that it is
engaged in a fight to the finish with
radical Islam." Robert Hutchings.
chairman of the National intelligence
Council. wrote iii a recent issue of For-
eign Policy magazine.

()ne of the hopeful signs on the
third anniversary of 9 II is the way
Americans are emerging from their
grief to discuss a tnore creative course
for the future arid to tiiore effectively
answer the lingering question: What
can America do"

A growing number of voices on
both the right and the left have been
etnboldened to shape proposals in a
broader context.

The I'nited States has tipped its hat
to political change with initiatives to
promote democracy As President Bush
said in a June speech in Istanbul. “De
ntocratic societies should welcome. not
fear. the participation of the faithful."

Yet iii practice. the United States
still veers away from Islamists.

In Iraq. which Washington seeks to
turn into a model for the region. UN.
and I'.S envoys deliberately picked
politicians mainly frotn secular parties
to assume power after the formal end of
the L'Sgled occupation

Analysts now predict they'll make a
comeback in next year's elections and
the United States would be wise not to
try to prevent it

The same applies to the wider Is
lainic world. which constitutes 18 per-
cent of the world‘s people

In the race to capture the imagina
tion of the \ast. alienated middle. hard
line groups need to be operating under
the same legal umbrella as more mod
erate groups or they will try to lure
the faithful through other means

'l‘ransitic-ns away from authoritari
an regimes may be transsier and more
volatile than political transtorniations
elsewhere over the past quarter centu-

is that activists inspired or protected

America cannot want loss for Mus

of the world And Muslims must not

Based on conversations with
Mideast experts. it appears that in the
meantime. the l'iiitcd States could do
three things First. hold a genuine two
way dialogue

For all the hand w ringing about
ending hiltt‘i'tis. that essential element
is missing

In a speech at the I'S Institute of

Peace last tiiontli. national security ad
viser (‘ondoleezza Rice said that the
I'nited States must do itiore with the Is
lamic world to dispel “destructno
myths" about America and to support
“voices of moderation."

The most striking thitig about the
speech was that she gave it to an Amer
ican audience '

Asked why no senior I'S official

the five largest Muslim countries iii the

Dialogue must not just engage peo-
ple listed in the local IKS. embassy's
Rolodex. We need to listen to the bad
guys too to understand where the fis-
sures and opportunities might be.

“Even the hard-core jihadis are hav-
itig big debates about who exactly the
enemy is and about their tactics."
said Princeton University Mideast ex—
pert Michael Doran. who gets up early
each morning to research Islamist and
jihadi Web sites.
