We echo the Dalai Lama´s implorement to Bush not to use violence.
"Your Excellency... It may seem presumptuous on my part, but I personally believe we need to think seriously whether a violent action is the right thing to do and in the greater interest of the nation and people in the long run. I believe violence will only increase the cycle of violence."
"His Holiness The Dalai Lama's message to President George Bush" , September 12, 2001, Dharamsala, India
If one would consider the possibility of survival of death, then those who died would certainly not want to see another massacre because of their deaths. Even without the notion of the numinous, certainly the Spirit in memory of these people would not want to see another world disaster in their name. I am related this repeatedly from New Yorkers, who e-mail and through friends.
In New York the people appear to be the most integrated of all the USA at present, many report to us, directly from there, and via others in contact. New York has voted "NO" to revengeful attacks. It was in New York that it happened after all. Is it the people that are listened to, or the voice of apparent Cocaine fuelled politicians, apparently like Hilary Clinton, who seek the mass over acres (massacres) it would appear, despite extraordinary boats of intelligence otherwise.
We thank all of you in New York for your compassionate efforts, prayers, meditations, and the Spirit of cooperation. You are setting an example that many of us hear. Here hear. Via Media to you.

Woman Of Afghanistan Speak On CIA Support
RAWA statement on the terrorist attacks in the US
Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA)
14 September 2001 (Posted 16 September 2001)
The people of Afghanistan have nothing to do with Osama and his accomplices
On September 11, 2001 the world was stunned with the horrific terrorist attacks
on the United States. RAWA stands with the rest of the world in expressing our
sorrow and condemnation for this barbaric act of violence and terror. RAWA had
already warned that the United States should not support the most treacherous,
most criminal, most anti-democracy and anti-women Islamic fundamentalist
parties because after both the Jehadi and the Taliban have committed every
possible type of heinous crimes against our people, they would feel no shame in
committing such crimes against the American people whom they consider
"infidel". In order to gain and maintain their power, these barbaric criminals are
ready to turn easily to any criminal force.
But unfortunately we must say that it was the government of the United States
who supported Pakistani dictator Gen. Zia-ul Haq in creating thousands of
religious schools from which the germs of Taliban emerged. In the similar way,
as is clear to all, Osama Bin Laden has been the blue-eyed boy of CIA. But what
is more painful is that American politicians have not drawn a lesson from their
pro-fundamentalist policies in our country and are still supporting this or that
fundamentalist band or leader. In our opinion any kind of support to the
fundamentalist Taliban and Jehadies is actually trampling democratic, women's
rights and human rights values.
If it is established that the suspects of the terrorist attacks are outside the US, our
constant claim that fundamentalist terrorists would devour their creators, is proved
The US government should consider the root cause of this terrible event, which
has not been the first and will not be the last one too. The US should stop
supporting Afghan terrorists and their supporters once and for all.
Now that the Taliban and Osama are the prime suspects by the US officials after
the criminal attacks, will the US subject Afghanistan to a military attack similar to
the one in 1998 and kill thousands of innocent Afghans for the crimes committed
by the Taliban and Osama? Does the US think that through such attacks, with
thousands of deprived, poor and innocent people of Afghanistan as its victims,
will be able to wipe out the root-cause of terrorism, or will it spread terrorism
even to a larger scale?
From our point of view a vast and indiscriminate military attacks on a country that
has been facing permanent disasters for more than two decades will not be a
matter of pride. We don't think such an attack would be the expression of the will
of the American people.
The US government and people should know that there is a vast difference
between the poor and devastated people of Afghanistan and the terrorist Jehadi
and Taliban criminals.
While we once again announce our solidarity and deep sorrow with the people of
the US, we also believe that attacking Afghanistan and killing its most ruined and
destitute people will not in any way decrease the grief of the American people. We
sincerely hope that the great American people could DIFFERENTIATE between
the people of Afghanistan and a handful of fundamentalist terrorists. Our hearts go
out to the people of the US.
Down with terrorism!
