SEPTEMBER 11, 1922 AND SEPTEMBER 11, 2001
TWO DAYS IN INFAMY
Date: October 8, 2001
From: Dr. Richard Merrill Haney, Ph.D.
(Mediation and Psychology),
A Citizen of the U.S.A. (Boston) and of Canada (Ottawa).
To: President George W. Bush, U.S.A., and all World Peoples
Having been raised and educated in Boston for the first 30 years of my life and now having lived in Canada for the second 30 years of my life, I have learned that American history and world history in the U.S.A. are taught in a politically-biased, one-sided, parochial and very limited manner. The typical American knows almost nothing about the genocide of the native American peoples and/or about world history, and, in particular, about what may have led up to such horrific events on Sept.11, 2001.
When I came to Canada in 1967 people asked me why I would leave such a wonderful country as the U.S. My answer was violence in its birthing, violence in many of the homes in Roxbury, in the Boston ghetto, violence in the media and violence in Viet Nam /Cambodia. For forty years I have been warning people that this cancer of violence would metastasize if the educators, leaders and the media did not take action on the issues of poverty, racism, absence of democracy, media control of thought and glorification of violence. The tragedy on September 11, 2001 was completely predictable and preventable. From the day that Ariel Sharon was elected Prime Minister of Israel, it became obvious to many that a new "day in infamy" was imminent.
Please consider the following condensed historic interpretation of the events leading up to Sept. 11, 2001:
First pre-historic humans lived in the Land of Canaan.
3,000 B.C. Amorites and Canaanites lived in the Land of Canaan.

1917 A.D. Balfour "Declaration" issued by England to create a "national home for the Jewish people" and also to ensure that it was "clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities". This ensured Jewish support for England's plan to control access to the Canal and to oil reserves in the Arab lands.
1920 A.D. League of Nations founded. Arabs not included.
JUNE, 1922 British White Paper on Palestine definitively clarifies that the Balfour Declaration "does not contemplate that Palestine as a whole should be converted into a Jewish National Home".

1995 Yitzhak Rabin assassinated, paving the way for the re-entry and election of "Bull-dozer" Ariel Sharon.

SEPT. 11, 2001 New York World Trade Center destroyed and Pentagon seriously damaged. Osama bin Laden lauds the highly successful and destructive attack against "the cowboys" (i.e., George Bush Sr., and George Bush Jr., who had been showing off his extravagantly expensive-looking cowboy boots to the media).

October 5, 2001 Ariel Sharon totally rejects Powell's statements as trying "to appease the Arabs". Ariel Sharon counts on the fact that the U.S. is dependent on Israel to ensure access to Middle East oil.
October 6, 2001 A Lantana, Florida man dies after contracting the inhaled form of anthrax. Mohamed Atta and other men of Middle Eastern origin had rented planes at a near-by flight school and had been asking a lot of questions at a local airfield about crop dusters.
When I review this condensed history I notice that:
