THE REMAINS OF 72 PEOPLE RECOVERED FROM GROUND ZERO IN NEW SEARCH



New York City officials say a renewed search this year of debris in and around the World Trade Center site has recovered 72 human remains.
The sifting of more than 800 cubic yards (612 cubic meters) of debris recovered from ground zero and underneath roads around the lower Manhattan site began in April and ended Friday.  The greatest number of remains – 37 – were found from material underneath West Street, a highway on the west side of ground zero.
The city began a renewed search for human remains in 2006. More than 1,800 remains have been found.

I've visited the site at GROUND ZERO when I was in New York and it is awe inspiring.  I am all for RECONCILIATION, but I'm not sure that building a MOSQUE on the site is the best idea.  I've no doubt however that the victims of the outrage will have their say.  Although I don't believe in religion generally, GOD, (or whatever), help those that died there including the young men whose minds were twisted by wicked bastards into believing they would be blessed by Allah in heaven or whatever they call it in Islam.

Even after 9 years it is hard to fully comprehend the scale of this atrocity. I was in a building opposite the WTC on the afternoon of 10th September 2001 before flying home that night. Our plane was delayed due to bad weather over Manhattan and eventually touched down in London just as the first Tower was hit.

One of my cousins worked in the WTC. However, his grandmother had recently died and flew home the day before the attacks to attend the funeral. Had she not died, he would have gone to work that day. I’m not sure about a big guy in the sky, but someone was watching over him.

Whoever was responsible for this was an evil bastard.

Honourable Fred, your cousin is a lucky guy. I was visiting my mother as on a Monday I did her banking and she had a portable telly on behind her as the first plane hit. I sat and watched it for about 3 hours as eventually people were jumping out of windows. Fucking horrific. What must have been in their minds? All in the name of religion. Ah, well.

Scunnert, of that there is little doubt. Hopefully he may get his, one day! I hope he dies horribly as I don't believe in any retribution in an after life.

Commonman, thanks Steve. I'll come over to yours for a shufty.

Seriously, are they really planning to put a mosque on the site of the WTC?
Don't fuck about, is this real?

Dark Lochnagar said...

Headson, yes definately. That is the current plan to help heal the wounds. Might as well just let the Muslims fuck Obama's ass.
